This is the visa application for my great aunt's entry to Brazil
from Paraguay. By this point, she had taken the name Gitla. It also
appears that her daughter's name has been changed in the
intervening years but I can't quite make it out. Please
translate the typewritten portions of the visa and any instructions and
prompts necessary to understand them.

It is on ViewMate at the following address ...

This is the evacuation card to Tashkent for my great aunt, Khane Gittel
KATZ SZUMSTAJN. The card appears to be entirely in Russian with printed
questions and space for handwritten data. I have the JewishGen entry in
the Holocaust database, and would like to know if there is other
information.

Descendants of R'Arieh Leib ben (son of) R' Shmuel of Kremnitz-18th cent #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My lineage goes back to the Mahara"l and the Maharsha"l through Reb.
Naftali KATZ, the author of the "Smichas Chachomim".

Several biographical sources show KATZ's descendants down to the above
father and sons who were Rabbis of Kremenetz during the latter part of
the 17th and early years of the 18th centuries. The only published
line that I've come across after the above Arieh Leib ben Shmuel is a
son Shmuel of Rava Ruska.

According to private, unpublished trees we are probaly descendants of
a daughter who married a Rabbi Yoseph who may have been a Rabbi in the
town/city called Breznitz (probably not the one in Czheck). This
Joseph had a son who married the daughter of Aharon and Pearl ,the
admo"r of Lechowitz and another son, R'Yisrael of Ostrow, who seems to
be my ancestor. There are two Yisrael of Ostrows mentioned in the book
, "Mazkeret Legdolei Ostrov" but we are not sure to which we may be
related and in both the lineage to Kremenetz, KATZ or the MAHARA"L are
not mentioned.

I would be happy to hear >from anyone who knows of other children of
the above R' Arieh Leib of Kremenetz to see how we may connect.

TIA and Shavua tov.

Peggy Freedman <peggyf@...>
 

The Vilnius District Research Group of LitvakSIG has received the
translations of the vital records for Antakalnis for the years 1854 to 1873.

Antakalnis has been described as a suburb of Vilnius and also as an
eldership (administrative district) within Vilnius. Some of these
records were included in previous translations of other suburbs, about
560 lines of these translations are new. Some records for Snipiskes and
Novogrod births were registered in Antakalnis. (We don't know why!)

If you are curious if your surname is included in these translations,
you can check the list of surnames in Vilnius District records freely
available at:
https://vilnius.shutterfly.com/

If you would like to become a qualified donor to the Vilnius DRG and

of US$100 at:
http://litvaksig.org/contribute

The data translated by the Vilnius DRG will be freely searchable and
available in the JewishGen Lithuania Database at the same time it is
made available in the LitvakSIG All Lithuania Database -- approximately
18 months >from LitvakSIG's receipt of the translations.

If you have questions about the Vilnius District Research Group, please
let me know.

Re: Origin of FREEDMAN name #general

David Nathan <d.nathan1@...>
 

Hi Liz,

This may or may not help, but my father-in-law told us the story of how he
believes that his family got their surname of Freedman. Whenever his father
(my grandfather-in-law) was asked by his children where they came from, he
refused to say anything. When they arrived in England around 1905 >from
somewhere in Eastern Europe, he could not speak any English, so was he
was taught a phrase by a fellow immigrant to say: "I am a freed man >from
Russia." when asked for his name by an immigration officer. To that officer
responded: "Welcome to England Mr Freedman. But he would never disclose
whereabouts the family came from. All he would say was: "New name, new
country, new life!" Thus any investigations by myself and other members of
my wife's family are totally stymied.
