Re: Revision Lists #bessarabia

Hello researchers,

October and November of this year I received 5 new microfilms >from our
volunteer. Only one set was without any Jewish records, and 4 others were
filled with records of our ancestors in Bessarabia.

To speed up process of translation, we would need more people who can read
Russian handwriting and put information into a table.

Here is a short list of towns/years we got Revisions for:

- Soroki, 1875
- Ataki, 1874
- Beltsy, 1874
- Khotin, 1874? Foreign Jews
- Faleshty, 1835
- Beltsy, 1835
- Leovo, 1835 - already in progress

If you are interested and can help with translations, please email me.

1906 Borisov Uyezd Duma Voters List #belarus

Susan Slusky <segslusky@...>
 

The 1906 Borisov Uyezd Duma Voters List includes tax paying males over 24 years
old >from the whole Borisov district, so Zembin, Dokshitsy, Logoisk, Smolevichi,
etc., as well as Borisov. At present only the second half of the list has been
transcribed and entered into the JewishGen Belarus database. Recently, in
conjunction with Paul Zoglin, I transcribed the names on the first half of the
list that seemed possibly Jewish. These names won't be uploaded into the
JewishGen Belarus database until 2020. In the meantime one can peruse the new
names list as a Google spreadsheet.

I can't include the link to the spreadsheet in this email because of the
mailing list restrictions. The link now appears in the Borisov KehilaLink
on the Czarist Records sub-page.

Re: Klyetsk book #belarus

Perhaps the book could be scanned and put on line, whether or not the
hard copy goes to an individual or to an institution. And a similar
process could be used for all surviving Yizkor books, translated or
not.

Receiving e-mails #latvia

Have there been any messages posted to Latvia SIG. I have not received
any since the reorganization of the General discussion group. I have
also not received any >from Litvack SIG or Courland SIG. Can someone
tell me what to do? Thanks.

Jo Ann Goldwater

MODERATOR NOTE: Thanks, Jo Ann. Yours is the first message that has come
in to the Latvia list for posting since 4 October. That was the date of
the last post to the Courland list, too. LitvakSIG has not had any
messages to post for about a week.

Ordinarily, we would refer questions like this to the Support Desk,
support@jewishgen.org, but since your question provided an opportunity
to answer a question that has been on a lot of people's minds, we are
taking this opportunity to post it. Please do not reply to the list,
as extended discussion of it is not genealogy and will not be posted.

Re: Can anyone tell me how long has the name Neta ( נֶטַע ) has been in use?

binyaminkerman@...
 

Hi Harvey, 
The answer to your question is both yes and no. 
The spelling of both names Neta and Nota (both נטע) suggests they relate to a planting or seedling. The strange thing is that in the common combination of men's names Natan Nota (נתן נטע) the name Nota is probably a colloquial/shorthand nickname for Natan and doesn't have to do with Neta or planting despite the spelling.

Is Medgitta or Medgit a Jewish name?

Is Medgitta (or Midgitta) a Jewish name? I have a woman of this name marrying into my family in 1854.

I suggest you to get in touch with the "Sociedade Israelita de Pelotas"
(http://sociedadeisraelita.magen.in/), they might have at least some
information you are looking for.

Good luck!


REIS in Niederstetten #germany

REIS in Niederstetten

There is a story in Bruno Stern's memoir, " Meine Jugenderinnerungen"
that Frau Voegele REIS, geb. LEHMANN, my 4x great-grandmother, died
of shock on 5 March 1848, on seeing the "Schlosskanzlei" in flames.

I've not been able to determine whether this was in fact simply the
office of the local ruler's agent or whether it was part of a local
castle, and if so, what the castle was called.

I wonder whether anyone can help me on the question?

Re: SIG group mailings

Jeffrey Herrmann
 

There is something seriously wrong with the SIGs since the new website was introduced, and I’m sorry, but being told over and over that nothing has changed simply isn’t acceptable.

To see if it is true that there hasn’t been much activity in the SIGs, I clicked on the GermanSIG link and then clicked on the GermanSIG news archive link.  It shows the last posting as “ 08/05/2019  IAJGS Conference in Cleveland Activity Summary”   Seriously ???  Nothing since 5 August ???   If there have been messages in the last two and a half months, where can I find them?

Next, I clicked on the DNASIG.  It takes you to a page that does not even pretend to have a link to archived news items.  If news items from the DNASIG can be retrieved, where are they hidden?  I’d like to know whether I have missed some or whether there haven’t been any for several weeks.  Why is that so difficult?

Please send out a "test message"
Thank You,

 I have had a similar problem to those described  here.

My usual 'traffic' from SIGs has reduced dramatically but I have been able to find a way into the system and can see I am still subscribed as before. However, since this new website was introduced I have sent at least two, possibly three, requests for help to the very address Dick Plotz gives above: support@... and never heard a thing! 

I have though realised that a totally new password for this mains@... site is required, and that my original password for the general JewishGen site remains as before. 

I think a 'test' would serve its purpose, but suspect that some of the explanatory notes intended to help us all navigate our way around this new group still needs simplification.

KREMENCHUG POLTAVA

Brentsi
 

Dear researchers for families from Kremenchug, Poltava, interested to know if anyone has discovered sources of name lists dated 1800+
After years of searching for my paternal grandparents origins , I need some “new clues”.
Simon Bernstein was born in 1870 to Israel Zvi and Cissie( surname unknown) in Kremenchug.
As far as I know I am the sole representative remaining of this family.
My grandfather arrived in Leeds UK married to Chana née Likhtmakher (Lightman) in 1890.


Re: SIG group mailings

But it's a little more complicated than that. The JewishGen home page
has a new design. In order to find information about the SIGs or your
subscriptions, click on any of the headings except "Home" or "Blog",
and you will see the familiar headings of the old home page.
