birth records in State Archives of Vinnitsa Oblast #general

mike yesnes
 

Discussion group,

Contacted State Archives of Vinnitsa Oblast for birth records for my
ggrandfather{Moses{Morris Yasnes{a} who was born January 25,1881 in
Vinnitsa,Ukraine.They responded saying they don't have records on
people who lived in Vinnitsa before 1912. According to the
Routes to Roots Foundation website page the Vinnitsa Archives should
have these records.There are records before 1912 per the information.
Is there another archive for Vinnista? Is there a State Archives of
Vinnista Region Oblast and is that different >from only the State Archives
of Vinnitsa Oblast?.They did give me the name of Gersha Itskovicha Yasnis
= Hersh{Hirsch}, the son of Isaac,surname Yasnis. This would be information
for 1912.I have contacted them for this information.
Would appreciate your help.Thank you.

Sincerely,

Mike Yesnes

Researching the towns of Chodiacky and Checiny-Kielce #general

Seth Eislund
 

Hello everybody,

I am doing genealogical research for some family friends, and through
my research, I have been focusing on the towns of Chodiacky and
Checiny-Kielce.

Two of my family friends' ancestors, Benjamin and Miriam Hyams, were
born in Chodiacky. The 1920 and 1940 United States censuses state he
was born in Poland, and I wondered if Chodiacky was located in Poland.
I looked up Chodiacky on the Shtetl Finder, and the closest phonetic
match was Khodaki, a shtetl in present-day Ukraine. I did more
research, and eventually found the names of three towns in the Lodz
Voivodeship: Chodaki (located in Poddebice County), Chodaki, (located
in Wielun County, a county in the Lodz Voivodeship), and Kolonia
Chodaki (located in Poddebice County). Which one of these villages is
the most likely to be Chodiacky? Any help or suggestions would be
appreciated.

The second town, Checiny-Kielce, appeared in a written document sent
to me by the family friends, which details their family history. In my
research, I have not encountered a single town with the name
Checiny-Kielce, but instead the two nearby towns of Checiny and
Kielce. I believe that they were erroneously clumped together, but
perhaps I am wrong. Is there a single town with the name
Checiny-Kielce? Once again, any help or suggestions would be
appreciated.

Thanks,

LAZAROFF-ABRAMOWITZ connection-New Haven 19th cent. #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My greatgreatgrandmother, Gittle ABRAMOWITZ, came to New Haven, Ct.
(USA) sometime during the second half of the 19th century. She had
been widowed in Europe and came with four young children.

According to a recently found oral source (no documentation) she
remarried , either in Liverpool or N.H. a widower by the name of
LAZAROFF. Supposedly he had his own 10 children when he married her.

To the best of my knowledge Gittle and/or her husband were
silversmiths or a similar trade. After several years I believe they
made aliya to Palestine (Eretz Yisrael).

Does the above sound familiar to anyone and possibly have more
information regarding the above couple.

TIA

Yoni Ben-Ari, Jerusalem

p.s. There is a family connection (not yet confirmed) between Gittle
ABRAMOWITZ and the family of Rabbi Isaac Simcha HUREWITZ (d. 1936) of
Hartford, Ct. I've posted about that in other posts and am still
hoping for some replies.

Re: Registration rules for birth certificates, marriage and death in Poland. #general

I want to complete my question or make some initial answers.

About marriages:

Here a religious marriage case followed by a civil marriage after a
delay of 5 years (1828-1833)

* See on
VM 49723: http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/responselist.asp?key=49723
the approximate translation does not formally establishes the
presence of a rabbi wich is precisly the groom's father or
(instead of the rabbi) of the groom's father.

Here are a religious marriage case not followed by a civil marriage
within a delay of 2 years(1891-1893)

* A revoked rabbi ; Read in the "Police Gazette", rewritted in
'Izraelita', Warsaw, 1893 december 1 and in 'Gazeta Warszawska',
Warsaw, 1893 november 25 ;
https://polona.pl/item/8010516/4/ and

http://ebuw.uw.edu.pl/dlibra/plain-content?id=93141

Icek GRYNCAJG, rabbi of the 5th district of Warsaw, despite the law,
did not register the marriage contracted by Hindensa (Hindesa) nee
GESUNDHEIT ( GEZUNDCHEJT) on july 16, 1891. Insofar as he has been
already tried twice guilty to breaking rules on vital registers,
the police commander of Warsaw sentenced him to pay a fine of 90 rubles
and to be prohibited by binding order >from practicing the rabbi business.

The marriage record Nr 442 dated December 12, 1893 is the last where
Icek GRYNCAJG appears as rabbi. He was replaced by Abram ZIBENBERG appointed
since 1888. Icyk GRCNZEUG (Icek GRYNCAJG) had been appointed upon before
1870.

These two cases seem to demonstrate that the tolerance of the
authorities and the time given to formalize a religious marriage
have changed over time.
