Dear Friends of Kremenets District and Associates,

I am pleased to announce that the Kremenets marriage, divorce, and death
records are available for downloading. Links to the Excel spreadsheets
are on the Kremenets Town Page on the Ukraine SIG website.

The URL above may have wrapped around to two lines. Be sure to paste the
entire URL (both lines) into your browser.

The spreadsheets include the following records:

* Kremenets (>from LDS microfilms):
320 Marriages: 1899-1902 & 1904
15 Divorces: 1903 & 1904
5,736 Deaths: 1870-1878, 1880-1897, 1900-1902, and 1904-1907

And don't forget the Births records that I told you about last week.
They also are available for downloading.

The spreadsheets are in Excel 2007-2010 format (xlsx extension). If you
have an earlier version of Excel you will need the free compatibility
pack that Microsoft makes available on their website

There is much more to come. We have received another 11,000 /pages /of

the translation queue. In a message later this week I'll describe these

Ukrainian Telephone Directories Digitized by Library of Congress #ukraine

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

The Library of Congress recently placed online scans of five Ukrainian
telephone directories: Kiev 1935, Voroshilovgrad (Luhansk) 1939,
Sevastopol 1941, Odessa 1948, and Lviv 1949. To view, download, or
for more information, visit
http://www.loc.gov/rr/european/phoneua/uadigdir.html. The full text
of these directories can be searched at http://genealogyindexer.org,
either in the original Cyrillic or by entering a Latin script search
term and using one of the automatic transliteration options ("Add
Latin -> Cyrillic," which is the default, or "Only Latin ->
Cyrillic"). Search results link to page scans on the Library of
Congress' website.

These are the only Ukrainian directories the Library of Congress has
digitized, but their offline holdings are much larger. See
http://www.loc.gov/rr/european/phoneua/uaphone.html for a list of more
of their Ukrainian telephone directories (all post-WWII, except for

Going beyond the 1700's in researching ancestors #poland

Elaine Farran
 

Hi

While I've met a brick wall trying to find out the maiden name of my
great-grandmother, I've been very fortunate in being able to trace
other family members to the middle-to-late 1700's

What I would like know how is once you have gotten as far back as records
are available, how can you find out when Jewish people arrived to the towns
of record (all Polish), and >from where?

FUCHS Family #latvia

Cheryl Blauvelt
 

Hello Everyone,
My two uncles were >from Riga, Russia and I am attemping to locate
their siblings. Samuel was born in 1894 to Rivka and Favish FUCHS. Gus
was born in 1897. I believe there were three more boys, one of who was
named George Fox upon arriving in American in 1908. This family
settlted in Chicago as I found a 1910 cenus record.
I am hoping to find George Fox's descendetns. George was named
Isreal at birth. George would have been born around 1899. Joesph was
born in 1901.The baby Graza was born in 1906 in Riga.
Eventually their parents names were changed to Rebeka and Phillip Fox.
I have all the information I need on Rebeka and Phillips. I am only
looking for their children as this point. So if anyone is related we
are family and I would love to meet and talk to you.

Another Addition to Feldser Story #lithuania

Ann Rabinowitz
 

One of the things which researchers may neglect to look at when expanding
their family tree is how and where their families lived and where they
moved to. I have mentioned the moves of the Feldser family >from the tiny
Vienna, Georgia, to the larger Atlanta, Georgia, and Birmingham, Alabama.
However, the families they married into also did the same types of moves
from the smaller towns to the larger to enable their children a better
education and social amenities.

In one of the references to Max Feldser's granddaughter Jill, which
appeared in the "Southern Israelite", it mentioned she married Sam Filler,
who was >from South Dakota. Intrigued by this mention of a South Dakota Jew,
I found that his parents, Jossel Filler and his pregnant wife Riwke
arrived in New York on the Moskova, on May 31, 1907, >from Bendery, Russia
(now Tighina, Moldova).

Knowing that many Jews were sent away >from the crowded large cities on the
east coast of America to outlying small towns across the country by the
organization known as the Industrial Removal Office, I decided to find out
if Joe Filler was one of these. I looked at their online database,
http://www.cjh.org/p/61 and, sure enough, on August 13, 1907, the
Industrial Removal Office sent Joe (formerly Jossel), his wife Rifka
(Rebecca) and their month old son Isidor, who was born in New York on
July 17, 1907, to Ashley, North Dakota. Whereupon, they then moved to
Rosenthal, North Dakota Whilst there, they had two more children, Harry
and Fanny, and then moved yet again to Hosmer, South Dakota, where their
youngest child Sam was born in 1921.

In 1923, Joe's wife Rebecca passed away and by 1928, the family was living
in San Antonio, TX, where Joe took a second wife, Mrs.Mary Z. Cohen. The
announcement of their marriage was found in the Houston Jewish Herald-Voice
newspaper. Checking out the plethora of local and Jewish newspapers and also
the City Directories which are now available online is another strategic
means of learning more about your family history. Eventually, Joe passed
away and Mary lived with step-son Sam until she passed away in 1958 in
San Antonio. Apparently, Sam then went to Atlanta, Georgia, where several
of his brothers were now living and it was there that he married into the
Feldser family.

Quite a saga for the Filler family as they moved >from New York City to
North and South Dakota then Texas then Georgia, but emblematic of the
travels of many Jewish families as they sought to set down roots first in
small town America and give their children a better life than that which
they had experienced in Europe.

Fw: Where in Russia was Ida MANOWITZ born? #ukraine

Pat Hamilton
 

Please help my family research by trying to read the name given by her husband Nathan CHORNEY in 1920 in Philadelphia, PA, USA when he applied for naturalisation.

I have posted the relevant section of this document to Viewmate. Number 25259.

Is it possible to look at marriage licenses, such as theirs? Might it give additional information?

Nathan CHORNEY was the brother of my grandfather Lionel BLACK. They were sons of Tsal Tcherny (>from Lionel's name - Levi-Itzkhok Tsalevich TCHERNY) and born in Belaya Tserkov in Kiev Gubernia.

Nathan reached USA on the 'Amerika' in 1913, via Hamburg, aged 19 (b 1893) but I cannot read what he gave as his father's name, so will post that too, but it does not look like Tsal or Saul.

In 1947 when Nathan Chorney applied for a US Social Security number he gave his parents' names as Charles Chorney and Esther BRODY.

He named his daughter Esther in 1931 - did he know (or assume) that his mother was dead? We have no proof that his mother was an Esther BRODY. (She would be my great-grandmother). Where was she from?
Lionel was much older, born 1885 - so were there siblings in between? Lionel came to London, England in 1912 with wife and two sons.


They each translated their surname in different ways: Nathan CHORNEY in USA, and Lionel BLACK in London, England.

Although these brothers did not give the same name for their father on the few documents we can find - they did both say they came >from the same town, now in Ukraine.

I really would like to know who their parents were, when married, and how many children they had. Any help would be much appreciated.
