Finding Alexander Robinson in Lithuania #lithuania

Leo Cooper <leorcooper19@...>
 

Dear friends,

I've been having trouble finding my 3rd great grandfather Alexander
"Sandi" Robinson in Old Country records. Alexander was born in about
1855 in (I think, could be Ziezmariai) Jieznas, Lithuania. He
immigrated to Boston, MA, in about 1903 with his large family; wife
and 8 children. Just a couple weeks ago I find his grave, as well as
his wife's, in Boston. It said that his father's name was Yehuda Meir.
While I quickly found Alexander's wife's family in Sirvintos,
Lithuania, I am still trying to find Alexander's.

One factor is that I don't know Alexander's original surname. He never
naturalized, but while his many sons did, none of them had listed
their original names. It is probably not "Rabinovich" or something
similar, that was Alexander's wife's surname. I have had no success
with passenger records. I have even tried just searching "Alexander"
or Aleksander" or "Sender" or "Sandi" in all of Lithuania, but I
didn't find any record that would fit.

Does anyone know of other ways I could go about researching him? I
have looked in both JewishGen's and LitvakSIG's databases, and found
nothing. He, and all his children, were born in Lithuania, so I would
figure I would of gotten something by now. They would of all been
living at the time of the 1897 Census, but Jieznas is a pretty small
village.

Thank you, and any help would be much appreciated.

German passports issued in Vilnius in 1916 #lithuania

Gavriel Yadgarov asked about German Passports and whether that meant that
the person to whom the passport was issued was of German ethnicity.
That is not the case, as you will see >from information about our
Internal Passport database:

The German Ober Ost passport was issued in 1917-1918 by the German
occupation authorities for the persons who spent the war years
in Lithuania ...

Philipson - a jewish settlement in south Brazil #general

Asher Vardi
 

Hi,

My wife's parents immigrated >from Russia (I don't know the exact
place) to South Brazil at the beginning of the 20th century. They came
(probably around 1910) to Philipson a Jewish settlement that was
established with the help of Baron Hirsh. This Jewish settlement did
not last for long around 1926 it was abandoned and most of its
inhabitants moved to Santa Maria a small town nearby. Our relative
whose name is Salomon Kruchin is burried in Philipson's cemetery.
Is anybody familiar with the story of this colony? Kruchin is a rather
rare surname, do you know where it could come >from in Russia. I would
like to find out where did they come >from and how did they come to
Brazil.

Any help is appreciated.

Russian Book on Jews in the NKVD and of NKVD Victims #general

Fritz Neubauer
 

Dear all,

I just came across the second edition of a book in Russian about Russian
Jews in the NKVD and in Russians Jews that were victims of the
organization. The bibliographical data is

Tumshis, Michail A. and Zolotarev, Vadim A.: Evrejí v NKVD: 1936-1938.
Opyt biograficheskogo slovarja.. Moskva: Russkij fond sodejstvija
obrazovaniju i nauke, 2017. Second adapted edition. 848 pages.

On the one hand the book decribes the numbers of Russian Jews in the
NKVD staff in the years 1935-1938 (41 per cent according to their
accounting) and what is known about their fate. The main part of pages
77-733 presents hundreds of names of Russians Jews that were in one way
or another persecuted by the NKVD in alphabetical order >from ABKIN to
JACKEVICH with birth and death dates as well as any other information
about their fates as far as is known.

Does anybody have any suggestion about what to do with these detailed
source?

Cousin/Cousin and Uncle/Niece Marriages #general

Sheldon Dan <sheldan1955@...>
 

How common would it be for relatives to marry? I know that marriage
between first cousins may be prohibited by many states, but I've
heard of first cousin marriages and it is not necessarily prohibited
in Judaism. In general, what is the situation when cousins (not
necessarily first) marry?

On the subject of relative marriages, I researched the SAX family I
discussed recently. I will have to do more research to prove that
the Saxes were originally LEVITANS (and in turn were related to my
SOLOMOVICH family). But according to my family's genealogist, there
may have been an uncle marrying his niece. Arieh SAX had eight
children. One of them was a daughter, Paulina SAX. She would have
been born about 1875 in Lithuania. In the 1900 U.S. Census, she is
listed as living in Stuntz, MN, married to Sam SAX. Their first
child, Marcus, is listed as 6 months old. (They would have two other
children, Ruth and Harry.)

Later, she is listed as Pauline Sax in the 1910 and 1920 Censuses.
Paulina and Sam lived in Chicago in 1910 and 1920. In 1930, they are
listed as living in Los Angeles. In 1940, Paulina is listed as a
widow, living in Los Angeles with her son Harry. She died in Los
Angeles in 1963.

Sam was probably born around 1874. Under U.S. Social Security
Applications and Claims, there is a Sam L. Sax, born in 1875 in
"Taukdggen, Soviet Union," which would be Tauroggen or Taurage,
Lithuania. I also found a Samuel Sax, listed in the California Death
Index, who died in Los Angeles in 1939. I think that these records
are probably accurate.

The family genealogist mentioned that some of the Sax relatives claim
that both Arieh and Sam Sax changed their names >from Levitan to Sax,
which may indicate the Levitan connection. If Sam was Paulina's
uncle, that means that Arieh and Sam were brothers. Since Sam and
Paulina were very close in age, this could account for the fact that
they might have been permitted to marry.

Does anyone have ideas about this?

Lake Shore Jewish Center, Cleveland, OH #general

Sheldon Dan <sheldan1955@...>
 

I am making some progress with my research into Eli BIRNKRANT. A
researcher suggested that I look at the Cleveland Jewish newspapers.

One thing that may have interfered with my research is that the
spelling of Eli's name in some sources was BIERNKRONT. That
uncovered a few more leads. I suspect that the sources spelled the
name that way because the name, which is usually pronounced
"BURN-krant," could have been interpreted as "BEERN-krahnt." Of
course, I have found numerous spellings of the family name,
including a number with a Z at the end.

Now I am curious about the institution that he was active in, the
Lake Shore Jewish Center in Cleveland. I am told that this synagogue
is also called Adat Jeshurun. I don't think it exists at present,
but I am sure the records of this synagogue may still be around.
Does anyone know the history of the congregation and where their
records may be?
