Re: Interesting Research Results! #belarus

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

An interesting detail is that he was *absent* >from the census of 1854...
It just occured to me that *absent* must be different than death,
which is stated explicitly, so the absence can be attributed to
something like being away on business at the time of the census. But
each of several years? That would be the same for Shmuel as well as
his grandfather Mordechai I guess.

Shalom,


The Plock Shtetl CO-OP is pleased to provide a status report:
Years available on the Mormon (LDS) films: 1808 - 1887
Total 15 microfilms containing about 20000 indices of vital records.

* Microfilm 1733680 and 1733681, covering Birth records years 1879, 1882,
1883, 1884, 1885, 1886, and BDM for years 1880 and 1881 (total of 2290
records) were transliterated in the past (REIPP) and are available in JRI
database.

* Microfilm nr 729207 covering years 1822 1823 1824 1825
(total of 469 records) has been posted as well.

* The transliteration of microfilm 730201 has been successfully completed
recently, (total of 2094 records). Years 1826, 1829, 1830, 1831 were already
posted and the remaining years: 1827, 1828, 1832-36 will be posted soon
in the growing JRI database.
Thanks to Tony Stern, Gideon Carmi, Gabi Lana and Debbie Schnur for their
support
and devotion in transliteration those years!

I have posted all the information about this project in
a special Web Page, containing the project Status Report updated
from time to time at:
http://www.geocities.com/Paris/Rue/4017/JRIPLOCK.HTM

There are volunteers >from 6 countries, making this project a real special
international Jewish joint venture.

But dear Chaverim, with the progress to date, much remains to be done.
To achieve our goal of indexing all the available vital records of Plock
more volunteers are needed to data enter the index pages (which
have already been photocopied). Name lists >from the work already
completed will be sent to volunteers to help them identify hard-to-read
names.

Those thousands of indices pages, written in calligraphic and picturesque
Polish hand writing, are waiting for some good souls to decipher them and
register them on the web, for generations to come...

Even if you do not have a direct interest in Plock, your help will be
welcomed and appreciated.

I also need a volunteer to photocopy the last remaining microfilms
from the Russian period in one of the LDS libraries in the world.
Please help to disclose the traces of our ancestors in
beautiful Plock, near the Wisla riverside, where once we
walked...

Shalom v'eGmar Khatima Tova to you all.

The research shows the names of Aron Abramovitch RASHKIN, age 56 in 1834
and Hirshe Nokhimovitch SLEVITCH, aged 25 in 1834. Do these names ring a

Did Russia Shapiros come from Lithuania? #general

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

After perusing the Shtetl finder list, I found so many Shapiro families
originating >from towns in Lithuania, that I am even more convinced that my
ancestors on the Shapiro side who lived on the Russia/Belarus border in
Surazh and who were Lubavitchers, must have originated up north in
Lithuania, with a branch moving down to Russia/Belarus for business
reasons. It was probably my great-great-grandfather or his father before
him. I wonder how many other Shapiros, even >from Lithuania, were also
Lubavitcher chassidim....

Given names Beno and Pit #latvia

Claire Petersky <petersky@...>
 

I have two great great uncles. One was named Beno (although it also
appears as Benjamin); the other was named Pit (although it also appears as
Peter).

These seem like odd names to me -- are they standard? Transliterations or
variations on other names?
