I notice that some records >from Pandelys (Ponedel) appear in the list of
material in the Kaunas Regional Archive. Has a LitvakSIG Uyezd group
extracted these records or does anybody have any knowledge of them ?

Mark ANTOKOLSKY #general

Paul Antokolsky <paul@...>
 

I am a great-grandson of one of Mark's brothers. I am looking for
information about his immediate relatives (names and dates, etc.) and
descendants.

Also looking for any living relatives of the poet Pavel Antokolsky, who
was the son apparently of Mark's brother Gregory.

Thanks very much. Perhaps we can exchange information?

Jews buried in Christian cemeteries #general

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

I don't know if this is commonly known, but I have found in my
genealogy/yizkor translation work that there were apparently many cases
where Jews died in Siberian exile (i.e. during WW2) and were specifically
buried in non-Jewish cemeteries. I was curious whether there has ever been
any attempt in the last ten years to rebury these people, wherever they are
known to be buried, in Jewish cemeteries.

I believe that over the decades of Soviet communism, it became difficult to
bury the dead in specifically Jewish cemeteries, and they were hence buried
in general cemeteries. I wonder also whether this makes tracing relatives
easier or harder.

Any thoughts?

Chaim Shalom #poland #lodz

The name Chaim in a double name is often a special
case. There is a custom to change a person's name
when that person becomes gravely ill. The thought is
that the Angel of Death will not be able to locate the
person because of the change in name. Chaim, which
means "life", is often the added name of choice.
Therefore, one must look at the original birth record
to determine whether the Chaim is original or added
later.

You can visit my family tree site at:
