Re: Varva, Ukraine #ukraine

My great-grandmother's family comes >from Varva which is a small village/town near Priluki. The family name is Janovitzky/Yanowitz. The most distant ancestors I know about are Usher Janovitzky and his wife Bluma, born about the 1840's. The Ukrainian researcher who I hired to search various archives was unable to find any records for the family, so any information I have is family lore. The family claim to fame, however, is Harvard professor Oscar Handlin (son of Ida Yanowitz) who wrote the Pulitzer prize-winning book about Jewish immigration, The Uprooted. After the war, Oscar tried to find out what happened to family members left in Varva, but he was unsuccessful. Varva does exist, but it didn't have many Jewish families.

Good luck in your research,

late birth registration #general

Eli Brauner
 

The phenomena of late birth registration in Galicia and elsewhere is well known.
The reasons for late registration are various most of them connected with
taxes and military service.
Yet I wonder why bother and register at all the newcomers?
Is there an article that deals with this procedure?
Thanks,

Rabbi Mordechai of Karlin (ZACKHEIM?)mid 19th century #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

I am researching a Rabbi Mordechai , born in Ruzhin (am not sure if
Ruzhin or Ruzenoi), who was a Rabbi in Karlin (Pinsk) during the first
half of the 19th century. My ggreatuncle, Chaim Dov KANTOR, who was
born in Karlin and came to Palestine (Eretz Yisrael) in the second
half of the 19th cent. mentions in his diary that his mother was
related to this Rabbi Mordechai. >from researching the Rabbis of
Karlin I have good reason to believe that Mordechai was a ZACKHEIM.

According to family tradition (no documented sources) my uncle and my
greatgrandmother were descendants of Reb Chaim of Volozhin or his
extended family through their above mentioned mother.

I have seen George Sackheim's "The Scattered Seeds".

Does anyone have any information regarding the above?

Bar association archives #general

ron arons
 

Jackye,

I am not aware of anything online per se. However, you should be able to find old
Martindale-Hubble lawyer directories going back to the early 1930s, possibly even
earlier. For example, the Univ. of WI in Madison has MH directories going back to
1931. (Possibly a reference librarian could look up stuff for you so you would not
even have to drive there.) Also, if you have not done so already, I'd look for
newspaper articles about Louis.

Good luck

Are there any archives online regarding former attorneys? I am trying to trace
Louis Gottlieb who was an attorney in Indiana and Illinois circa 1910s-early
1930s.

Re: Congregation Child Isaac Burial Society #general

Renee Steinig
 

Gary Pokrassa <pokrassa@aol.com> asked about "Cong Child Isaac," on whose
grounds at New York City's Mount Zion Cemetery his wife's great-grandparents
Morris and Tillie SILVERMAN are buried.

As Barbara Mannlein noted, "Cong Child Isaac" is an abbreviation of
Congregation Children of Isaac. The Mount Zion website (mountzioncemetery.com)
lists Morris and Tillie SILBERMAN in that section. Morris's surname is also
spelled with a B on his death record
(https://familysearch.org/search/collection/2240477 ), but Tillie's death
record uses the spelling SILVERMAN.

According to the JGS New York's Burial Society Database
(http://www.jgsny.org/index.php/searchable-databases/burial-society-databases ),
Congregation Children of Isaac also has sections at two Long Island cemeteries
-- Beth David in western Nassau County and Wellwood in Suffolk County. These
cemeteries are newer than Mount Zion and have more recent burials. It's worth a
look to see if any family members are there. Unfortunately, neither Beth David
nor Wellwood has online burial listings.

Possibly Congregation Children of Isaac is Congregation B'nai Isaac, which
according to an article in the Brooklyn Eagle
(https://bklyn.newspapers.com/title_1890/the_brooklyn_daily_eagle/ )
was founded in the early 1920s. That synagogue is listed in the current
Brooklyn phone directory (http://www.dexpages.com/index.php ) and on the
website of the Bensonhurst Council of Jewish Organizations
(http://www.bencojo.org/organizations.htm ).
