I recently learned that my great-grandfather >from Kiev served in the cavalry
division of the Russian army prior to his immigration to the U.S. in 1896.
Does anyone have any information of Jews serving in the Russian army in the
late 1800's and specifically in a cavalry division?

Please respond to my home e-mail address:

Searching Morris BAKST #general

liss@...
 

I have tried to find the death record for Morris BAKST
and have not been able to find anything. He emigrated to NYC
in 1890 and probably lived in Manhattan until he died.

He was born in 1850 in Oshmyany, Lithuania (now Belarus).
His last name could have been Baksht, Bakst, Baxt, Baxter,
but Bakst is the most likely. I believe his Hebrew name
was Moshe Shmuel (Movsha Shmuilo). His wife's name was
Thulia SOLOMOWITZ.

His daughter Jenny Bakst WINCHELL is buried in Mokom Sholom
in Queens. She's not buried with him. I'm about to start
phoning every cemetery in NYC.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to find him?

Thanks,

I believe this is usually determined by the sponsoring organization. For
instance, the U. S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC has determined
what level of membership benefits represent a charitable donation beyond the
level of what contributors receive as value in newsletters, etc. As such, the
organization involved needs to be contacted for a written statement of what
level of value it considers travelers would receive. It may not be much but
it may not be zero, either.

Czar's army #general

saralea altman <saralea@...>
 

My grandfather avoided the draft in Minsk by immigrating to New York in
approximately 1888. At least, that is the family story. He was 18 years
old and was married before he left. he had no papers since he was draft
eligible. The story is that he got to America the long way around,
through California. He probably landed in San Francisco or Oakland, then
headed for New York. I can not find any documentation on him under any
of his three names.The arrival records for the west coast do not start
until 1903 and there is no evidence of him in New York apparantly, he
avoided the census takers as well.
Does this story sound plausible? Does anyone else have a similar story
in there framily?
Names my grandfather used, Scharnovitz, Shiekowitz,on immigrating to
Canada became Altman

Re: King David family tree #general

Matthew Meisel <matthew24@...>
 

Yesterday, I made the following post:

A visitor to my web site (address below) sent me a copy of his family
tree and asked if there is a web site or someone that is interested in
it. The tree itself goes back to King David.
My question is twofold:
1) Is there someone out there who would be interested in the tree? I'd
be more than happy to put you in touch with its author.
2) After hearing of numerous success stories, it seems that several
people have successfully traced their ancestry back to King David. Why
not create a database of the descendants of King David? Would JewishGen
be willing to host such a database?
I'd like to share some of the responses I received:
Some people had glowing praise for anyone who could trace themselves
back to King David. (Just to clarify, I have not traced myself back,
someone else did. Also, this is just a lineage of *one* person's
ancestry back to King David, not a tree of King David's descendants!)
Others were a little more skeptical.
To summarize the responses:
- Many people wanted to see the tree. I will try to put it on the
Internet and I will post the address in a few days.
- A few people truly doubted that anyone could trace their ancestry back
to King David. One person offered $1000 to someone who could prove the
lineage.
- Finally, one person did the math:
If you consider 25 years to a generation (4 generations per century),
then there are 30 centuries x 4 = 120 generations between King David
and today. So conservatively, if each generation produced only
2 children, that means that King David has 2 to the 120, or a billion
billion billion descendants today. We are all descendants of King David.
He further pointed out that since we are all descendants of King David,
we already have a database for his descendants. It's the Family Tree of
the Jewish People (http://www.jewishgen.org/gedcom).
