I will be sending an update to the Bessarabia Vital Records in the
JewishGen Romania Database
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Romania/KishinevVRs.htm later this week. It will include births >from Bendery and Novoselitsa,
and marriages >from Kishinev. The Bendery area records will include a few
records >from Komray, Manzyr, Petrovka, Romanovka, Chimishlya and Kaushany. The
records should be online in July. This update will mean that we will now
have about 161,000 records on line in this database.

The registers >from the Bendery area are in very bad shape with torn pages,
loose pages inserted out of order and horrible handwriting. That is why
they are taking so long to get online. We still have more records >from
Bendery area to work on. If anyone knows of any birth marriage or death records
that are available >from the Family History Library please contact me at
_bobwascou@gmail.com_ (mailto:bobwascou@gmail.com) . Please check the listing
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Romania/KishinevVRs.htm for a listing
of all records in the database.

In addition to the Bessarabia Vital Records database ROM-SIG is also
working on databases >from the Moldavia and Bucovina Regions of Romania. You can
find the Geographical Regions for the JewishGen Romania Database at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Romania/RomaniaRegions.htm These databases
should also be online in July.

ROM-SIG is on a roll. Watch us go!

My father, Jacob Moses SCHWARTZMAN was born in Bendery in the mid to late
1880s to Ephriam and Hinda SCHWARTZMAN. Ephraim was the son of Tillie (SPIVAC) and Jacob
SCHWARTZMAN. My father's Aunt (Rose/Rebekah SCHWARTZMAN also of Bendery) and Uncle Leo (David)
LERNER paid for his passage to America in 1906.

A few weeks ago, I was given the opportunity to stay with relatives of friends in both Chisinau (the capital
of Moldova) and Odessa - Bendery is between the two. I will be leaving in two weeks. My problem is
that this is very short notice for me to do any in depth research on the
family. I have been waiting for years for microfilms of records >from the 1880s and 1890s to be
interpreted. JewishGen isn't quite there yet. And, the Bendery Cemetery was opened in 1913, after the
departure of my father - and his mother and 4 sisters whom he brought to America several years later. The
Schwartzmans buried there do not appear to be related to my father's family, as far as I can
determine.
Thanks to Michael Burke, who made an (eventually) successful trip to the area last year, and Yefim Kogan
of this wonderful SIG, I have a guide who will spend two days with me in Bendery - Natalia
Alhazov <nalhazov@gmail.com>; and a researcher at the State Archives - Alla Chastina
tabard@rambler.ru. Alla is searching the Rabbinical records in Bendery for
early Schwartzmans. Also, a driver was recommended as needed in Bendery.

Odessa, around 90 km >from Bendery, is famous for its culture and Opera
House. My father in his early 20s became an opera singer and then an impresario of nearly 50 years in
Cleveland. As a child, he taught me a song about Odessa - so it was certainly on his "radar." During the
Cold War, some of the musical greats he brought to Cleveland all went to the same school in Odessa -
Richter, Gilels, Milstein, Oistrakh, etc. For my stay in Odessa, highly recommended were the Odessa
Holocaust Museum and Olga, of OdessaWalks, whose assistant will take me on the Odessa Music and
Arts Walking Tour.

Bendery Bound! #bessarabia

David and Gloria Green <davidgreen777@...>
 

Dear Bessarabers,
First, I would like to take this opportunity thank Yefim Kogan, the photographer and interpreters for their
diligent work on the Bendery Cemetery Project. To have completed it in such a short time frame is
nothing less than amazing and much appreciated.

I would also like to thank Ala Gamulka and her husband, Larry, for their efforts in interpreting chapters
of the Bendery Yizkor Book and Lance Ackerfeld for formatting and uploading the chapters as they
become available (work in progress) on JewishGen. Also, a big thank you to Nolan Altman of JewishGen's
JOWBR for facilitating the work of volunteers in documenting and uploading burials in Jewish cemeteries
around the world on JewishGen.

My father, Jacob Moses SCHWARTZMAN was born in Bendery in the mid to late 1880s to Ephriam and

Spiro de Castro Leon, of the Bendery Kehilalinks page, has done a wonderful job in a short time of putting
together a depth of information about Bendery. http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/bender/bendery.html
Now to the purpose of this email. Unless Alla at the State Archives turns up something in the Rabbinical
records, it looks like I will be in Bendery without a clue as to where the family lived >from the 1880s till
their final departure in 1908. My father was the only son of 8 surviving children. His father died between
1900 - 1905, leaving young Jacob alone to tend their field outside of town. That certainly complicates
the issue. There was no time to go beyond a third grade education for my father, the only surviving male
in a family of 9.

Any thoughts / suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Again, my thanks to Yefim and all the others mentioned for giving us the gift of information.

All best,

I have been looking in vain for certain records of my
great-grandfather Harry GENANDES, who came to the U.S. c.1900 and who,
I am told, had changed his name at some point after immigration to
Genandes >from some, unknown original surname. Thus, I have been
unable to locate naturalization records (I know >from later census
records that he was naturalized), ship manifest records, or even
marriage records. He most likely changed his name after he got
married, and I haven't even been able to locate such records relating
to his wife. Does anybody have any ideas how to go about puzzling out
what his original surname might have been, in order to finally track
down these records? Nobody in my family has any idea either, so I
don't even really have a starting point. Has anybody else ever come
across this problem?

Thanks,

Arthur Siegel
