The information is on the Russian language site at:
http://www.vep.ru/bbl/history/cbr24.html#15.
http://tinyurl.com/c4gyvl8. Information is based on Bank of Russia
Bulletin 32 (684) on 11/06/03.

Short biographies are included.There are several Jewish names.
In fact there are 4 Jews on these lists. All served between the October
Revolution and WW II. Among the pre-revolutionary names are German names.
Many ethnic Germans served in high positions in the Tsarist government; there
were no Jews among them, although some may have had Jewish-sounding names
[I believe there was a GOLDBERG on Hitler's staff].

Here are the 4 Jews:

Yakov Stanislavovich GANETSKY
Aron L'vovich SHEYNMAN
Moisey Iosifovich KALMANOVICH
Solomon Lazarevich KRUGLIKOV

Hi,

I joined a Facebook group called Jews >from Warsaw. I also would like to set
up groups for some of my other shtetls, but could not figure out how. It seems
that you can't start a group with only one member. Does anyone know how to
start a new group if you would presently be the only member?

Alternatively, if you must have more than one member to start a group, would
any JewishGen member who has an interest in Buki, Ukraine and a Facebook account
be interested in joining with me in starting a Jews >from Buki group?

Thanks.

Please reply privately.

Hi

I've posted four vital records in Polish for which I would appreciate
translations.

They are on ViewMate at the following addresses ...

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM25003
Marriage record for Abram Lajzer MUSZKATBLAT, Warsaw, Poland

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM25002
Birth record of Szmul Majer ZAMLER, Bobrowniki Poland

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM25001
This image was supposed to be of AKT 18, the marriage record of Lewek
or Lejbus SZAMPANIER, of Konskie, Poland. I did recognize an ancestral
name - ROZENSZWEIG - in the lower document that appears to be AKT 19 so
I would appreciate a translation of both records on the page, if possible

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM25000
This document relates to Mosiek MIODOWICZ, Konskie Poland. All information
would be appreciated.

Swiss portrait painter #germany

Eva Lawrence
 

Does anyone know anything about the Swiss portrait painter Hans Joachim
BRUNSCHWEILER (1770-1853)? So far I've gleaned the information that he
worked in the town of Frauenfeld, Thurgau, Switzerland in 1830. Was he
Jewish? The reason I ask is that I possess a small oval portrait of a lady I
believe to be my ggggrandmother, Esther (Ernestine) HONIG (1813-1843) >from
Furth (Fuerth) which bears the inscription Frauenfeld 1830. She married my
ggggrandfather Anselm UNGER in Bonn in 1832, but I've no further
information about her movements. So at the moment, I can't find any
connection between her and the artist or the town. The art museum in
Frauenfeld couldn't help, though they did write that the portrait looked
like a typical example of Swiss and German portraiture of that date, and
the attribution was 'not unlikely'.

Access to Dade Co., Florida Records #general

s_wiener@...
 

Hello, fellow-Genners,

While searching at A**.com, I unexpectedly came across a particular listing >from
the Florida Divorce Index, 1927-2001 for a family member and her first husband
[both deceased now for more than 30 years.] The individuals involved had
not-too-common names so I am sure that, while they lived in the Bronx, this
record pertains to them. The particular index is >from 1949.
Local Case Number for Dade County: 1949 xxx xxxx.

When I look at the Miami-Dade County Clerk's searchable web-site:
http://www2.miami-dadeclerk.com/public-records/Search.aspx
no such record is listed although there are other events listed prior to 1949.
I tried using just the surname with a broad range of years - 1941-1950 - no luck.

Would anyone have an explanation? I am interested in obtaining any documentation
related to the dissolution of this marriage - there were 2 children at the time
so it wasn't a simple dissolution [if that even existed at the time.]

If you think that your response would benefit other readers, please post to to
group - otherwise a private response would be most welcome.

Thanks in advance,

FRANKEL from Lodz #general

news@...
 

Hello, all,
My grandfather, Benjamin FRANKEL, born in Lodz or Colno, Poland, in about 1893,
was the son of Nachman FRANKEL and Mindel DINNENSOHN. Nachman and family
immigrated to New York around 1901.
Nachman's parents were Meyer/Meir FRANKEL and Golde BLUMENTHAL. I only know
their names.
I am looking for any information on these people.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

Yiddish translationn request for Boruch Kielman #general

madyland@...
 

Hello Genners,
I've posted a request on Viewmate for a word for word Yiddish translation of
a salutation on the back of a photo I found in my grandmother's album. The
photo was taken in a studio in Munich, Germany.

I believe it's >from Boruch KELMAN, but not sure if it's signed as "your
brother" or "son of your brother"-- obviously a critical difference for
genealogical follow-up!

Also, was a second given name inscribed?

I have found on a Dachau survivor list a Boruch KELMAN born in 1908, from
Neustadt. Since my grandmother was born in the town of Nowe Miasto nad
Pilica (listed as Neustadt on her ship manifest to New York), I'm hoping
that it's the same town (there are several in Poland and in Germany) and
therefore her relative.
I haven't yet found records >from after 1901 for Nowe Miasto or for Kelman,
so any details would be helpful.

The item posted on Viewmate at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM24995

Thank you in advance for your help.
