from Sharkovshchina to Shkuntiki #lithuania

Salinger Ralph
 

Dear Readers,
I am posting this for a friend

Looking at the All Lithuania Revision List Database (Pt. 2) (Family List,
1888), my gggrandfather, Mendel Pinkus IUDIN, is listed as living in the
Shkuntiki village, Igumen area, Disna, Vilnius. [Family List,
LVIA/681/17/1103] Under the "Comments" section it notes that he was
"registered in Sharkov JC, lived in the village >from 1868".
1. What does the "JC" stand for?
2.Does this mean that Mendel moved >from Sharkovshchina to Shkuntiki, but
the registry wasn't updated to the new location? My grandfather (Mendel's
grandson), Shimon/Sam YUDIN, said that he came >from Sharkovshchina [this is
about 9.5 miles >from Shkuntiki, unless he was referring to the district &
not the village].
3. What registry does this refer to? Does it still exist? Is the original
page available online?

Re: Do you recognize a town called Zezmova? #general

Alexander Sharon
 

I'm afraid that town Sosnove in Ukraine is not the researched "Zezmova".
Town Sosnove was known prior to the end of WWII in Polish as Ludwipol in
Volhynia region.

It had also distinguished Yiddish name of Slishch Gadol. Please also note
that in the JewshGen's Gazetteer town still known under is post WWII
Russian name: Sosnovoye. USBGN on which JewishGen is based, gradually
moving to modern Ukrainian names.

As to "Zezmova", which I believe is Lithuanian Ziezmariai, was also known
under Zezmar, Zezmer, Zhizmory and few similar names.

Polina...JewishGen has two databases for locating towns in Eastern Europe

the town has a communities page with lots of good links...and you

What happened to Meyer ZALMONOVITZ? #general

Rachelle Litt
 

Hello Genners, I hope someone out there can help me bust through a frustrating
brick wall. You have never failed me.

In 1901 my great grandmother Shore ZALMONOVITZ (SALMONOWITZ) came to
Philadelphia aboard the Phoenicia >from Hamburg (originally Taurogen) with her
children, Abram, Meyer, Chana and Estor. I have both the English and German
versions of the manifest.

On June 4, 1917 Meyer registered for the draft and listed a wife and 4 children.
He was still living in Philadelphia at 2515 S 7th Street. It said he had made a
declaration for citizenship. His birthdate is listed at May 15, 1888.

The only other record I can find listing a Meyer ZALMONOVITZ is a death
certificate for a Sarah BROTFUS with a birthdate of 1863 who died on August 10,
1925 at the age of 62. Sarah ZALMONOVITZ was born around 1861 per the manifest.
The death certificate, however lists her father as Meyer ZALMONOVITZ and mother
as Eva COHEN. The information on the death certificate was provided by Morris
ARONOVITZ who was the husband of Meyer's sister-in-law Anna ZALMONOVITZ. (She
is the wife of Meyers brother Abram ( Harry) my ggf. So I know I have the
correct family, however Sarah (who may have re-married to Brotfus? and also went
by the surname KAISER per her children's marriage and death documents) could
not be Meyer's daughter because he was born in 1888, 25 years after Sarah was
born.

I suppose it is possible that Meyer >from 1888 was named for Sarah's father so
there are two Meyer ZALMONOVITZ. The real dilemma is that there are no other
records for Meyer (1888) and his wife and 4 children. Meyer was living in
Philadelphia in 1917 as per the draft registration.

There should be some census records, a death certificate and the naturalization
documents he said he had applied for in the Southeastern District Court of
Pennsylvania. Also there is no other record for a Sarah BROTFUS- or a BROTFUS
of any other kind except for that death certificate. Could never figure out how
Sarah was a Kaiser or a Brotfus! Help please!

Harry LEVINSON, Chicago #general

Hi,

I am trying to trace descendants of Harry and Fanny LEVINSON >from Chicago.

I was sent this -

'This is >from John William Leonard's The Book of Chicagoans:

"LEVINSON, Harry Charles, lawyer; b. Maryampol, Russia, Mar. 12, 1879; s. Isaac
and Sophia (Reichseligman) Levinson; grad. Medill High Sch., Chicago, 1894;
LL.B., Lake Forest Univ., 1900; m. Chicago, Dec. 17, 1902, Fannie Conn. Admitted
to bar, 1900, and since practiced in Chicago; mem. Smith, Fake, Levinson &
Hoffman; dir. Independent Drug Co.; sec. 111. Packing Co., Brandeis Auto Sales
Co., Shorham Hotel Co. Mem. 111. State and Chicago bar assns. Trustee Temple
Israel. Mason, K.P. Home: 918 Hyde Park Boul. Office: 29 S. La Salle St."

which gives me lots of information about Harry and, as far as Im concerned, the
important part, is his mother Sophia nee REICHSELIGMAN. She is my first cousin,
three times removed!

I have him on the 1910 census living with his in-laws Samuel COHN and what looks
like Josephina, and two of his brothers-in-laws, Harry and Benjamin.

If anyone is researching these people, I would love to hear >from them.

Thanks.
