Searching for Miriam Leiter Haber BEUTEL in Israel and / or descendants #austria-czech

Selma Sheridan
 

Dear fellow researchers,
I have Yad Vashem Pages of Testimony >from 28/04/99 submitted by Miriam
BEUTEL, living in Kiriat Ata near Haifa, regarding BEUTEL relatives Ana and
Rakhel (born in Vienna), Sara and young boy (born in Podhajce). All were
murdered in Podhajce, Tarnopol, Poland, in 1943. We have been unable to
find Miriam BEUTEL or her family in Israel. She would likely be related by
marriage to my great-great-grandfather Mordechai BEUTEL (and his son Hersch
BEUTEL) >from Skalat near Podhajce, who moved to Vienna. We would like to
contact Miriam BEUTEL and / or her descendants, to learn more about this
branch of the family. Many thanks,
Selma J Sheridan

posting to discussion list #romania

BARBARA HERSHEY <barbara.hershey@...>
 

Discussion Group readers:

The moderators of this group have asked that I send some reminders
to our members regarding the Jewishgen requirements for sending a
message for posting to the list.

1. When responding to a post, particularly one you have received
in the Digest, do not use your Reply key to respond. This drags
the entire Digest with it and creates a difficult situation for
the Moderator. Rather, please start an entirely new message.
Include a brief reference to the message to which you are responding
so the prior message is identifiable.

2. Do not use any diacritical marks or accents. The server can not
decifer them and renders the message unreadable. If this happens,
the moderators will delete your message and ask you to resend it
without the marks. This creates extra work and delays the delivery
of your message.

3. Always sign your messages with your full name and your complete
place of residence - i.e. city, state/province and country.

4. Remember also that the message must be sent in plain text.

Those of you who heard about upcoming changes to the format of the
discussion lists, that will permit more options for writing, please
know that the changes are still expected and announcements will be
made once they are in effect.

Thank you for your cooperation and participation. Our moderators are
hard-working volunteers and they thank you for observing these rules.

Looking for Descendants of Abraham CHIATT from Grinkiskis, Lithuania to Argentina and South Africa #latinamerica

Maria Krane
 

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to help out a lady who doesn't speak English, looking for her CHIATT/KHAET/CHAITT/KHAETOVICH relatives originally >from Grinkiskis, Lithuania. The patriarch of the family was Abraham CHIATT who died prior to 1912 when his widow, Ethel Leah (born @1848), traveled to Argentina with their daughter Sheindl,who was born in 1891. Their two sons, David and Itzjak CHIATT traveled to South Africa (possibly before or around the same time) and supposedly changed their surname. Sheindl used the name Sofia in Argentina and married her sweetheart, Alfredo GARTEMBLUM, whom she had met in Lithuania (in Argentina). The original GARTEMBLUM surname was GOR. If you have any information that might help, please contact me privately at MariaKrane@aol.com. Thank you.

Regards >from sunny South Florida,
Maria Krane

Revision Lists #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi Bessarabers,

I am getting many inquiries about particular set of Revision Lists for our towns in Bessarabia/Moldova.
Recently It was a question about 1780s Revision in what was at time Moldova Principality done by
Russian occupying army. We know that this Reviison took place, and it had 3,000+ names or families
(?). Unfortunately we were not able yet to find that set. I believe that the set is not in Moldovan
Archves, but possible in St. Petersburg, Russia or maybe Moscow, Russia. Also I told you that I found
just a few records >from 1897 All Russia Census - that is it for now for that
set.

Here is a very good new finding, I believe you will be happy with. Recently I found almost 1,500 pages
of records >from Family Lists for Middle Class, Kishinev, 1910! I personally think that this set is very
important to Kishinev research, since the Revisions stopped in 1859, and only little was available after
1859.

That set of 1910 is ALREADY in work, and hopefully next time in summer of 2019 we will get these
records in our database!

I also hope that we get soon other kinds of records, like educational, hospital, land records, etc.

Please let me know if oyu have any questions, suggestions.

All the best,
Yefim Kogan
