CHATZANSKY relatives in Buenos Aires? #general

Vivian308@...
 

I just found some information that opens up a new avenue of
research. I did a google search on CHATZANSKY, which is
one of the names I'm researching and came up with CHATZ
genealogy. There's a list of passengers with that name, and
also two girls, Hinde and Gittel CHATZANSKY. Under religion,
it says Catholic. I know Hinde and Gittel are Yiddish names.
Do you think this is a mistake? The other information
listed includes their ages, ship's name, port they are from, and
date of arrival. Place of birth is unknown. It says they are Russian.
The date of arrival in Buenos Aires is 8/6/1907.

My other question is how can I find out more information about
them and how can I know if there are other relatives in Argentina?
I don't know Spanish. They most likely married and have
different names, also.

I emailed the writer of the Jewish Genealogical Research in
Argentina InfoFile found on jewishgen. So far I haven't had
a response though I'm hoping to get one.

Another CHATZANSKY relative once told me that anyone from
the Kiev area who spells their name that way (it's uncommon)
is related to us. I don't know where these girls were >from but the
name is spelled the "right"way. Unfortunately, many relatives
changed or shortened their name after they left Europe so
it's hard to find them.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

Indexing the 1940 Kishinev commercial yearbook #romania

Harvey Kabaker
 

Dear Bessarabers,

The "Anuarul Chisinaului 1940" -- the 1940 Kishinev commercial yearbook
-- is a listing of businesses, professionals, merchants, tradesmen,
artisans, associations, government offices and other occupations
compiled by the ARPID publishing house. At Yefim's request, I'm
coordinating a project to extract names and occupations of the Jewish
men and women -- or, at least, those with Jewish-sounding names -- into
a searchable online database.

You can see the publication in PDF format here:
http://tinyurl.com/kevfxgk
(Original URL)
http://www.jewishgen.org/Bessarabia/files/projects/50KishinevDirectory1940/Book.pdf

We need volunteers. We've begun by scanning online pages and putting the
text into a spreadsheet. The next phase is proofreading text, verifying
Jewish names and transliterating surnames into the most likely English
equivalent. You don't need to understand Romanian, but you will need to
use the Romanian keyboard on your PC to obtain characters with
diacriticals. You'll have a transliteration guide for reference.

You may work as little as an hour or two a week, at your own pace. For
more information without obligation or commitment, please write to me
directly. I'll send a sample of the work to be done, and you can decide
whether to help.

Regards,
Harvey Kabaker

Added note:
You may be familiar with our earlier work on the 1924 Romanian business
directory, extracting Jewish names >from pages for Chisinau and the
former Bessarabian provinces then under Romanian control. The results
are posted on the Ukraine SIG Web site with a link >from
http://www.jewishgen.org/Bessarabia/Databases.html

The records also are included in the searchable "JewishGen Romania
Database," which consists of records >from Romania and Moldova, at

Languages in Moldova and Moldovia #bessarabia

Anna Reuter <anna94306@...>
 

Hi Yefim:

Thanks for explaining the Moldavia/Moldova Confusion.  

Could you also give us your take on the languages used in the two regions over
that 200 year period? Among and between Jews,  Yiddish (German Dialect) would
be spoken, of course. And if they were literate,  they would write Yiddish with
Hebrew letters. 

How about the divide between Romania and Bessarabia  (when it was part of the
Russian Empire)? My father, born in Bessarabia in 1905, claimed to speak Russian
in addition to Yiddish.   But Bessarabia was closer to Ukraine.  Would his version
of Russian with the Cyrillic Alphabet be more similar to Ukrainian?
Ukrainian and Russian Languages share some commonality with Cyrillic letters,
but there are differences.

Then there is Romania and/or the Moldavia Principality. They would speak
Romanian, of course, and use  a Latin Alphabet but with 31 letters.
Romanian is a Romance Language with roots in Latin.

Please correct me if I did not get this right.

Thanks,

Anna Reuter
