Yizkor Book Project, July 2016 #galicia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

MODERATOR NOTE: Please see especially the listings below for Brody and
Tovste (Tluste), Ukraine -- towns once part of Galicia.


Shalom,

The Yizkor Book Project in July was characterized by a great deal of
updates as you will see below. It is always encouraging to see the projects
make progress - step by step - till the final goal is reached and the
complete Yizkor book is translated. This amazing progress is due to the
untiring determination of the coordinators leading these projects and they
certainly deserve our salute for all that they do.

In the individual Yizkor book projects, the blue links appearing in the table
of contents of each project lead to the articles that have been translated.
I'm quite often asked about why articles that don't have blue links can't be
read and if a paid subscription is required to see the "hidden" articles. No,
there is no charge for reading the articles that have been translated and,
on the contrary, our basic aim is to allow free, global access to everyone
for the translated Yizkor book material. So if the article isn't available and
you are interested in reading it, the next logical step would be to assist with
financial support in the translation of the article. For this it is worthwhile
looking at and donating to the specific Translations Fund project if it is
listed on the JewishGen-erosity page (link at the end) or by contacting
myself so that I can provide you with an estimate of the cost of translation
and you can decide if it's something you are able to take on.

For those of you who would like to know more about the Yizkor Book
Project and will be at the upcoming IAJGS Conference in Seattle, I warmly
recommend you taking part in our Yizkor Book Birds of a Feather meeting.
This year it is being led by Max Heffler who is and has been an integral
partner in our Yizkor Book team and has a great deal of knowledge and
experience regarding the project.

For those of you who are going to the conference, I do wish you an
excellent and rewarding time whilst you're there.

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the
Yizkor Book Project over July.

Adoption of Wife's Surname #lithuania

Wendy Freebourne <art@...>
 

My BRENER great aunt >from Pokroy married an INDIKH >from Siauliai. They
emigrated to S Africa to join their son after 1920.
In the cemetery burial records they are Indich. On their grave stones they
are Brener and no mention of Indich at all.
Their son emigrated as Abram INDIK. The only death record I have found in
S Africa so far is for an Abe Brener.
I had a great uncle and a cousin BRENER already in S Africa but know no
reason for the surname changes.

Brick Wall - Aron Kanelskiy, possible immigration to Buenos Aires, Argentina #latinamerica

Bella Tseytlin
 

Dear all,

I have been searching for any records of my late grandfather, but so
far my search was unsuccessful.
Recently I have come with name Aron Ganielsky who has departed
Hamburg to Argentina on 4 of July 1908. The person on manifest has
same year of birth, place of birth, occupation and marital status.
In hope that the surname was misspelt I was trying to find anything
further, i.e. relatives left behind, or who paid for the passage, etc.
but found nothing.
Handwritten index for same person did not help either.

Born Aron Berko Kanelskiy, in Uman, Ukraine on 10 May, 1885 to Berko &
Malka Kanelskiy and died on 25 October 1949 in Karaganda, Kazakhstan,
where
he & his 2nd family was evacuated during WW2 >from Odessa.

Aron's first wife was Basya/Baya - Shimonova, surname unknown. She
died c.1917 - 1918, when my dad was 2 years old. The family had 3
boys: Khaskel/Khariton, born 1904, then Boris, and my father Yakov,
born1915.
Family lore is that before WW1 Aron being a member of RSDRP & worrying
persecutions left Russia for America or South America with few other
men and lived there for one year. He has returned to Russia, when the
party he belong to became RSDRP(B). All but one man returned to
Russia.
Aron's second wife (as stated on podvignaroda website) Faina Isakovna.
Together they had 3 more children - Iosif, born around 1926 and killed
during first few months of WW2 and girls - Oma and Musia.

Argentina has no vital records in English beyond 1895 and there is
nothing on other websites.

I've posted 2 family photos and a copy of manifest in hope that
someone might find names or faces familiar.

They are on ViewMate at the following address:

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.


I would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions which will assist me in
my search.

Thank you very much.

far my search was unsuccessful.
Recently I have come with name Aron Ganielsky who has departed
Hamburg to Argentina on 4 of July 1908. The person on manifest has
same year of birth, place of birth, occupation and marital status.
In hope that the surname was misspelt I was trying to find anything
further, i.e. relatives left behind, or who paid for the passage, etc.
but found nothing.
Handwritten index for same person did not help either.

Born Aron Berko Kanelskiy, in Uman, Ukraine on 10 May, 1885 to Berko &
Malka Kanelskiy and died on 25 October 1949 in Karaganda, Kazakhstan,
where
he & his 2nd family was evacuated during WW2 >from Odessa.

Aron's first wife was Basya/Baya - Shimonova, surname unknown. She
died c.1917 - 1918, when my dad was 2 years old. The family had 3
boys: Khaskel/Khariton, born 1904, then Boris, and my father Yakov,
born1915.
Family lore is that before WW1 Aron being a member of RSDRP & worrying
persecutions left Russia for America or South America with few other
men and lived there for one year. He has returned to Russia, when the
party he belong to became RSDRP(B). All but one man returned to
Russia.
Aron's second wife (as stated on podvignaroda website) Faina Isakovna.
Together they had 3 more children - Iosif, born around 1926 and killed
during first few months of WW2 and girls - Oma and Musia.

Argentina has no vital records in English beyond 1895 and there is
nothing on other websites.

I've posted 2 family photos and a copy of manifest in hope that
someone might find names or faces familiar.
