Looking for LYONSON family from Leeds #general

Shoshana Kahan
 

I've found among family photos members of a family named LYONSON who
are somehow related to my husband's family. Since his original family
name was GUREVITCH, I'm assuming that the "lion's-son" family were
also Gurevitches, but I don't know how closely they were related. In
the early 20th century (or mid-20th?) the family was living in Leeds.
In the UK census records I do find a Lyonson family in the area,
though their names don't match the 1 I have. Are there any descendants
of this family out there who might have some ancestry information to
share?

Thanks,
Shoshana Kahan

Records from Letichev and Uezd: Snitkov, Derazhnia, Medzhybizh, Zinkov, Mikhalpol, Volkovintsy, Butsnevtsy #ukraine

Renée K. Carl
 

Hello all

I'm announcing a fundraising campaign to support the translation of
records >from Letichev and Uezd, including Snitkov, Derazhnia,
Medzhybizh, Zinkov, Mikhalpol, Volkovintsy, Butsnevtsy.

Yes, you read that right - documents for Letichev and the towns of
Snitkov, Derazhnia, Medzhybizh, Zinkov, Mikhalpol, Volkovintsy,
Butsnevtsy!

Since the 2003 fire at the Kamyanets-Podilsky Archives, researchers
with ancestors >from towns in the region have wondered if they might
ever access or work with data relating to their relatives. This
opportunity to translate and make the dataset and documents originally
from the Kamyanets-Podilsky Archives available for study is truly
exciting news, and we need your donations to make it a success.

This project will translate and index 1221 images of records from
towns of Lectichev and its uezd, including Snitkov, Derazhnia,
Medzhybizh, Zinkov, Mikhalpol, Volkovintsy, Butsnevtsy. These images
are >from the 1829 and 1833 lists of families for conscription

Donate to the project here:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=22
look for the line that reads "Document Translation and Indexing
Project for Letichev and Uezd."

Throughout the course of the project, completed spreadsheets will be
made available to donors who contribute $100 or more. At the same
time, translations of records might also be posted on relevant
KehilaLink webpages.

We have a translator ready to start, so I hope you will join me in
funding this important work.

"In Poland, Searching for Jewish Heritage"
http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/02/travel/poland-jewish-heritage.html

This article, which appeared in the New York Times travel section last
month, is retired Times reporter Joseph Berger's account of his journey
with his sister "to the childhood homes of their parents, places where
once Jews like them could thrive." Berger's moving travelogue includes
a lengthy description of his father's Galician hometown (now Borynya,
Ukraine) and of his stops at nearby Turka and two other Galician towns,
Lancut and Lesko.

Danilo Berkon from Vorotsevichi #belarus

Mark Deming <markddeming@...>
 

Hello,

I am trying to locate the family of my great grandfather, Danilo
Berkon. He went by Daniel Berkon in the United States, but always
heard >from family that the name was spelled differently in Poland,
maybe Berkan, Berkin, or Berkow. He was born in December 1874 (or
1875), and I recently learned he might be >from present-day Belarus.
When he arrived in the United States, the passenger manifest said he
was >from "Grodno." According to his naturalization papers in the
United States, which were filed in 1921, his hometown is "Warocewicze,
Russia." A fellow researcher informed me that this is now
Vorotsevichi, Belarus. We always heard growing up that he was Jewish,
but changed religions upon moving to the United States. Has anybody
heard of any Berkon families in the Vorotsevichi area? I would like to
try and determine whether he was Jewish and, hopefully, find out more
about his ancestors. I thank you in advance for any insight you all
can offer!

News about Jenny FRANKENTHALER LEVI #germany

Liz Hanellin
 

Dear Fellow GerSIGers,

I would like to share with you the recent very meaningful information that
ITS sent me today regarding my great-aunt Jenny LEVI nee FRANKENTHALER and
her family.

As I've written to the list before, I have, for some time now, been
trying to learn the fate of Jenny, her husband Ludwig, and their daughter.
On my own, and with the help of several people on this list, I was able to
learn that Jenny and Ludwig moved >from the Wurzburg area to Frankfurt in
1939; however, without a marriage date I was never able to confirm any
additional information about Ludwig and I only had anecdotal information
(>from my family) that they had a daughter.

ITS was able to provide me with a birthdate for Ludwig and, unfortunately,
also to confirm that he was killed in Majdanek on September 25, 1942. He
was born in Mannheim, on April 10, 1909 (making him 11 years younger than
Jenny!).

In addition, ITS was able to find the birthdate and name of Jenny and
Ludwig's daughter, Judis Hadasse (b. June 2, 1941). This is amazing
information for me to be able to put a name to that little person who
was born into such turmoil! >from the records, it seems that she was
born at Saalburgstrasse 5, in Frankfurt, and a midwife (Hebamme) named Th.
(Therese?) Wiegand was attending.

Another record ITS sent me stated that, in Frankfurt, Ludwig forcibly
worked with "Jakob Astheimer," gardening, so I suspect that this may
have been his trade.

Unfortunately, ITS was not able to tell me the fate of Jenny or Judis,
so the search for her continues....

If any of the information above sparks new thoughts or ideas, please
do not hesitate to be in touch! I would be happy to learn more about
Ludwig's side of the family as well, if there are any Mannheim LEVIs
or LEVYs out there.

Best, Liz Hanellin NYC

Need help with translation of strange word #germany

Eva <evaeisenstein@...>
 

Dear GERSIGers:

I am in the middle of translating my father's letters in German to the
woman who would become his wife, and my mother. Very colloquial letters.
This is 1935. He writes of going to three regular events on weekday
evenings: Chug, Beth, and Snif. All three words are mentioned in many
letters. It is the last word that has eluded my translation efforts. I
would appreciate any help with this strange word, or abbreviation, or
whatever it may be.
