Dear researchers,

Shavua Tov!

Here is an update for the month of May 2015 for Bessarabia SIG.
See the details at the "What's New" section of our site.

Bessarabian Databases. New additions:
The data for the new database "Jews involved in public life in Bessarabia"
was send to JewishGen and will be available at regular search at JewishGen /
Romania(Bessarabia) databases. You will be able to find Jews involved in
public life in Bessarabia; who held government position or was part of large
Jewish organizations, like Jewish hospitals, Jewish schools. It will also
include crown rabbis at the synagogues for many Bessarabian towns.
For now, you can see that data at the Bessarabia SIG website / Bessarabian
Databases section.

Genealogical Conferences.
There was a change in a schedule for Bessarabian presentations:

Please see the schedule of all Bessarabian sessions with abstracts for each
session.

At the Bessarabia SIG Luncheon Anastasia Moscaliuk could not attend the
conference, and the Bessarabian Board suggested to have a following
presentation: "Kishinev, my native town: Can we now visit Kishinev and find
help in our genealogical research?" by Yefim Kogan. You can see an
abstract of that presentation at the conference website or at Bessarabia SIG
website.

There is a very good progress in several Cemetery projects. The update for
Cemetery projects will follow.

Send your comments, suggestions, critique, new ideas, proposals of how to
make our Bessarabia group better.

Genealogy of war hero Henry Johnson #general

David Laskin
 

Private Henry Johnson, African-American (1892 - 1929), received the
Medal of Honor at the same time as Jewish Sergeant William Shemin.
http://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/03/us/two-world-war-i-soldiers-to-posthumously-receive-medal-of-honor.html?_r=0

I attended with 65 members of the Shemin family. Private Johnson had
no heirs so the NY National Guard accepted on his behalf. Born in
North Carolina (?) in 1892, Johnson moved to New York as a teenager
and worked as a chauffeur, a coal yard laborer and a railroad station
porter in Albany.

See this article for a family that thought they were related but wasn't:

http://www.seattletimes.com/nation-world/with-medal-of-honor-award-family-learns-wwi-hero-wasnt-kin/

Wikipedia says he was born in Alexandria, VA

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Lincoln_Johnson

I would love help with tracing this tragic hero -- tricky of course
because of the name Johnson. Thanks.

HARSUNAN? #general

I am really stumped! My pgg's name was Miriam Harsunan who married a Louis
Rilen (not likely his "real" surname). They lived in Gomel (Homel??). I have
looked up Harsunan and I'm finding it in the "Hausa" language. I think it's
African in origin. This doesn't sound right-or does it? I would appreciate
anyone's imput on this.
