Disna District 1888 Family List #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

About 10 days ago, I posted a message about the newly translated Disna
District 1888 Family list. I received an overwhelming response and a
number of researchers ended up qualifying and received a copy of the
entire list.

Some researchers were not willing to look at the list without first
knowing if their ancestral surname was included in the FL. I now have an
alphabetical list of the surnames and will be glad to send it to anyone
who contacts me directly and not to the digest.

Following is a message I received >from one of the researchers who received
the list, and my response. I think you will find it very interesting as
well as helpful in your own research.

A question please. For one of the entries in the database column L says
"registered in Luzhki JC, lived in the tavern >from 1860" and column
Q says "Lozino tavern, Plissa area." Is JC Jewish Community? My SHENKMAN
relatives lived in Luzhki and, I believe, were associated with the
"shenk" there. Does this entry suggest that they were registered in
Luzhki but lived in an area called Lozino Tavern near Plissa? Does it
mean they actually lived in a building that was a tavern?

My response.

You have figured it out correctly. JC is the abbreviation for Jewish
Community.

Your ancestor lived in the Lozino Tavern, near Plissa >from 1860 to at
least 1888. He was registered in the Luzhki Jewish Community which is an
indication he may have been born there.=20

A Jewish Tavern was kosher and was actually a small hotel with a bar
selling liquor. Some Jews lived in the Tavern for months, or even years.
Some Jews, particularly traders who traveled, may have spent one or two
nights there. The main customers for the liquor, were the Gentiles who
lived in the area.

Since your ancestor lived in the Tavern for at least 28 years, he may have
been an employee or possibly the owner. If you would like the know the
exact location of Plissa in Belarus, go to
http://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/Search.asp

When Plissa appears in the results, hold your cursor over the Plissa and
additional information will appear.

This record is an example of the great importance of the Disna District
1888 Family List. It does not include the large towns or villages in the
district but only includes the tiny villages, Taverns, Estates, Mills, etc.
Records of ancestors can be found on the list who are not listed on the
major revision or family lists.

The picture on the original cover of this book is my grandfather, Dr. Julius
Strauss, of Mannheim, Germany. The picture was taken by my mother, Gretel
Strauss Lamm. She worked at the Photo Shop in Mannheim and came with my
father, Bruno Jacob Lamm, to the USA with her Leica camera so that she might
be able to make some money as a photographer.

Following is a hypothetical question about one of the entries on the list, and
my explanation. This question, and my answer can apply to many other lists as
well. I think you will find it very interesting as well as helpful in your own
research.

The question - For one of the entries in the 1888 FL, column L says registered
in Luzhki JC, lived in the tavern >from 1860 and column Q says Lozino tavern,
Plissa area. Is JC Jewish Community? Does this entry suggest that they were
registered in Luzhki but lived in an area called "Lozino Tavern" near Plissa?
Does it mean they actually lived in a building that was a tavern?

My explanation.

JC is the abbreviation for Jewish Community and is commonly used by the
archivists in the archives.

The individual listed in the 1888 FL lived in the Lozino Tavern, near
Plissa >from 1860 to at least 1888. He was registered in the Luzhki Jewish
Community which is an indication he may have been born there.

A Jewish Tavern was kosher and was actually a small hotel with a bar

I've been there, but never ordered any information >from them....since
the info is not online, either they send it to you or you find someone

Inquiry Regarding BMD Records for Brody - Thank you #general

Joyce Eastman
 

I would like to thank all who have written to me privately as well as within
the digests regarding my inquiry about the possibility of records for Brody
possibly being recorded in the LDS films for Lviv or Tarnopol.

I have already reviewed all the LDS films for Brody, as well as the All Galicia
Database, and records available on JRI-Poland. While there are many records
for "Helfer", which is the surname of the family members I am seeking - I
have not yet been able to find any of the records I am seeking.

Without finding records for my grandmother's sibilings it may be impossible to
connect other Helfer records to my own family. I still plan to review the
LDS films for Lviv to verify if any of my Helfer family members might have
been married there, registered the birth of their children there, or died in
that location. If I have any success I will be glad to report it on the
digests.

Thank you all for the insight you have provided, and I will continue to
review the records on the All Galicia Database that are constantly being
added to, as well as the records on JRI-Poland.

According to my grandfather's, Harry GOMBERG, naturalization he

that the date may well not be correct, but I did search for ships
arriving on August 3 on the Stephen Morse site. There is a ship

the manifest on the Ellis Island site, there is only one page

Shermans in St Marylebone c 1911 #unitedkingdom

Sandy Crystall
 

Hello-
I am looking for descendants of this Sherman family that lived in St.
Marylebone in 1911 and at least shortly thereafter.

In 1902, Abraham Sherman married Milly Keleskie in Whitechapel,
London. Between the years 1903 and 1915, sons Jack, Sam, Reuben,
Casriel, and Bernard were born. (I have the 1911 census that includes
Abraham and Milly and sons Jack and Sam).

Jack immigrated to the U.S. c. 1924 and may have ended up in Los
Angeles, California. (I am working on locating records for him and any
descendants.) I have no additional information on the other brothers
and I am not sure what more recent information is available.

If this family is familiar to you, please let me know (or provide
advice about other more recent sources of information.)

Thank you!
