Hi All,

I have names of towns which were located in Poland area but I am not sure
what the names are today.

The names are KROCANKA ; CHAROLI ; JASZLO ; TASZLOV WROCZANKA GACZOSZAG

I don't know if they are all different names or all the same town.

Thank You

He certainly was not a Chief Rabbi: as far as such a post existed
they are all know to me.

Your ancestor may have been very learned and esteemed, but he was
not a prominent public figure in Jerusalem at that time.

Members of Bet Din of Tiberias or Safed #rabbinic

My grandfather, Rabbi Shlomo MALKA, obtained his rabbinical smikha
in Tiberias (or Safed) sometime between 1895, and 1904 and then
alledgedly served as dayan on the Tiberias (or Safed) Bet Din during
that same period.

Where could I find records of his studies, rabbinical smikha and/or
service at the bet din?

Thanks.

Bessarabia Duma List Project Completed #romania

Terry Lasky <tlasky@...>
 

The Bessarabia Duma List Project is now completed. Another 55,000+
names have been added bringing the total to 128,000 names. The
Bessarabia Duma project is a listing of all men over the age of 24 who
were eligible to vote in the 1906 and 1907 Bessarabian Duma Election.
It includes all of Moldova and portions of the Ukraine (Black Sea area
and the area along the northern border of Moldova). This database is a
part of the ALL-ROMANIAN database. Many people worked on this project
but I would specifically like to thank Harry Green, Claire Stuart and
Leslie Oberman who were the "superstars" of this effort and did the
majority of the work. I would also like to thank Jewishgen for all of
their support and especially Warren Blatt and Michael Tobias.

Re: Butrimonys Tax and Voters list #lithuania

Olga Zabludoff <oz@...>
 

Howard Margol is on target with his response to Bonnie Frederics' query (see
LitvakSIG digest of September 6) regarding the 1937 census of Butrimonys
Jews which is posted on the ALD as a Tax and Voters list. I had responded
privately to Bonnie when I read her post on September 5, clarifying the
confusion. Here is the story in a nutshell:

When I went to Butrimonys in 2003, the mayor and priest of the town gave me
a copy of the 1937 census of the Jews of Butrimonys. This is a census which
had been commissioned by the church. It had been in the church archives for
66 years! It was written in Lithuanian.

Shortly thereafter I transliterated the census into English and submitted it
to LitvakSIG for posting on the ALD. It took a while to get there.

I will contact the webmaster of the ALD to see whether he can include an
introductory statement I had submitted along with the transliterated census
explaining the history of the list.

Suicide and Existing Archival Records #unitedkingdom

Larry Steinhauer <LSteinhauer@...>
 

Hi,
I have two sets of questions that I would appreciate some help =
with. The first concerns the reporting and recording of suicides in =
England at the beginning of the 20th century. According to my family's =
oral history, my grandfather MORRIS MILLER's first wife ALLKA committed =
suicide. Allka was alive and was living with Morris in London at the time =
of the 1901 English census. Also, Morris married my grandmother ESTHER =
BOOK in London in January 1902, so Allka must have committed suicide some =
time in the middle of 1901. However, I cannot find any record of her =
death in the GRO's Death Indexes for either 1901 or 1902. Were suicides =
excluded >from these records and, if so, is there any other place where =
they might have been recorded?
My second questions have to do with the possible existence of =
archival records that might help me to discover what the Miller family =
name was when they still lived in Poland. (Although Miller was a Jewish =
family name, I can find no trace of Morris or any of his siblings in the =
Polish Record Index.) Morris and at least some his siblings (Esther, =
Philip, Sima, Saretel and Rachel) migrated to England >from Bialystok =
Poland in the 1890s. They lived in London until 1906 when most of the =
family migrated to the U.S. There seems to have been a social and/or =
religious community of Bialystok Jews in the East End of London during =
this period since Morris's second wife, Esther, was born in Bialystok and =
Morris's brother Philip also met and married a woman >from Bialystok in =
London (DEBA BAKER/BACHRACH). Both of these marriages took place in the =
East London Synagogue. Hence my questions: can anyone tell me: (a) if =
marriage records for the East London Synagogue still exist; and (b) if =
there was a formal association of Bialystok Jews at that time and, if so, =
whether any of their records have survived?
Any help that I can get in answering these questions would be =
greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Romania Trip- Galatz/Galati - 2 #romania

DAGAG123@...
 

Galatz/Galati -

We met our wonderful guide/translator who had made all the arrangements for
us to visit with the Presidents of each Jewish Community we were visiting.

The President of Galati showed me the three burial books they have. The
first contains records >from 1902-1940, the second >from 1941-1967 and the third
1941-2000.

The President then showed me a beautiful Golden Book for the Jewish Hospital
of Galati, inscribed by Queen Mary on May 27,1903. There are several names
of prominent Jews who donated funds to the hospital. I did find a Marcu
WEINTRAUB, who may indeed be my ggf. I did manage to take some photos of names and
will slowly post what I have, in the near future. I did locate many WEINTRAUB
names in the cemetery books. The synagogue, also has many items, light
fixtures for one example, that have donations listed on them.

My understanding was that there were no surviving records of Jewish births
or marriages in the synagogue, however the city does have records. The bad
news, they are difficult to obtain.

I did inquire about Cemetery records, and was once again referred to the
Federation of Jewish Communities >from Romania for assistance in placing orders.

The Choral Synagogue in Galati is absolutely beautiful. If I understood
correctly, money was raised to restore it >from abroad, only to have the
earthquake cause new damage. Still it probably is one of our favorite synagogues.
The Jewish community is now down to approximately 200 Jews. There are
approximately 20 Jewish youth who meet for lessons and a youth group.

I'd also like to mention that there is a lovely woman named Mrs. Geller who
runs their Meals on Wheels and small kosher restaurant/elderly meeting place.
She was really wonderful and very welcoming. The synagogue compound also
houses 3 dogs and one cat who adore Mrs. Geller.

For any more details, please contact me directly.
Best wishes,

Romania Trip Report 1 - Bucharest #romania

DAGAG123@...
 

Dear ROM-SIG Researchers,

We returned >from our 6 day trip to Romania on August 19 which I can only
describe as amazing, intense, exhausting and at times depressing. I will only
post pertinent information with regard to research. Should you like to receive
my more detailed account, please contact me directly.

I will post each city individually, beginning with Bucharest. There will be
a total of 4 reports.

Bucharest - We arranged to attend services on Friday night at the main
synagogue. We met a few congregants but preferred to spend time with family. My
Mother's cousin and his wonderful wife, still live in Bucharest and joined us
for part of our trip. We saw the area where my Mother spent in hiding during
the war. We loved being with family, but we didn't find Bucharest all that
wonderful.

Should a researcher desire to have the help of a particular Jewish community
in Romania, they are encouraged to contact the Federation of Jewish
Communities of Romania or in Romanian - Evreiesti din Romania, 70478, Str. SF Vineri,
nr. 9-11, Sect. 3, Bucharest, Romania. The cost of their locating Jewish
documents is somewhere between $10 for newer deaths 1970-present and $15 for
older documents. There may be other taxes and costs involved.
