Krasnansky from Moldova #general

Foxaru@...
 

In my search I have learned that my grandparents family, the KRASNANSKY'S from
Beltsy, Moldova changed their names to the following: KETROSER, KRASNER, &
KIPERSTEIN. Most of them settled in the Minneapolis, MN area in the 1920's.
If anyone knows of these surnames I could really use the help.

Re: 18th Annual conference reports: any GANS or HIRSCHHORN? #lithuania

Prof. Harry J. Hirschhorn <hirshorn@...>
 

I had asked Davida if there were any GANS or HIRSCHHORN in the texts of the
18th annual conference reports. She advises me to post it
to litvaksig@lyris.jewishgen.org.
in order that my request may appear in the "digest".

Eliach on radio #lithuania

Marion Hattenbach Bernstein
 

... I was hoping to announce that Yaffa Eliach's book on
Eyshishok won the National Book Award. Still it is remarkable that a
900 year chronicle of a Lithuanian shtetl was a finalist.
I just heard today that Ms. Eliach will be a guest on the Diane Rehm show
(on public radio) on Monday, Nov. 23. Check with your local NPR affiliate

Questions about bringing archivist to NY Seminar #lithuania

This is a reasonable question. We published the invitaton/offer by the NY
Seminar. It was somewhat different >from what the JGSLA provided in their
support in helping bring Vitalija to the Los Angeles. Aside >from slitting the
cost of the airfare the LA Seminar paid for four nights at the hotel
themselves. The SIG paid for seven additional days for consultations at the
Seminar, planning meetings and touring.

The LA Seminar also paid a more generous daily stipend entirely themselves but
for fewer days. Many of her meal costs were paid by individual members of the
SIG and also the SIG itself. The LitvakSIG paid her an honorarium for her
presentation at the Seminar. The Jewish Genealogy Societies in New York and
Washington paid all additional expenses for her visits to NY and DC where she
also gave talks.

We received a portion of the consultation fees and Vitalija worked very hard
during the entire Seminar (missing an opportunity to attend sessions.) As a
result the LitvakSIG basically covered the cost of her visit.

What the JGSNY is currently offering would not cover the cost of bringing an
archivist >from Lithuania. We haven't yet countered with any specific request.
The JGSNY is trying to help more SIGs bring a larger number of archivists to
their Seminar based on the success of the LA Seminar. But we haven't made any
final decisions about whether to invite someone or what we would ask that
person to do - we'd expect the development of some product or process similar
to the Catalog of the Jewish Holdings of the Kaunas Archives and have this
described at the Seminar.

Suggestions about this are welcome.

"JOINE" as a first name #general

NANCY D PITTERS <NDPITTERS@...>
 

A great-uncle is listed in an 1897 Philadelphia Rosenbaum Bank Book ledger
and ticketed with the *first* name of "Joine". We were told by relatives
that his first name was 'Leon' when he entered this country >from the Ukraine
and have also found him in later years listed (in U.S. marriage, death &
census documents) as George Aron. We know why he took the name George Aron
in the U.S. .. but we are curious about the "Joine" first name. Is there a
translation for *Joine*? Is this a Jewish name? Any information is
appreciated.
