What wonderful material! On the citizens list for Mazeikiai, I found my
uncles family: Lurija Icikas (my mother's brother) and his wife Chaya and
their first born son. Also my grandmother, Nechama Lurie, born in 1860. How
can I get the Lithuainian translated? Many thanks for your help. Harold

Website

I am forwarding Ilan GANOT's message about Mazheik website.

This site will be of interest to Latvian researchers since many Jews moved
from Lithuania to Latvia, including some of my mother's relatives the AVRECH
family who resided in Mazheik and some moved to Liepaja in 1879.

There is a lot of information on this site including pictures and documents.

Subject: SITE CITE: MAZHEIK (Mazeikiai) Shtetl Memorial Website

The memorial website to the destroyed Shtetl of MAZHEIK (Mazeikiai in
Lithuanian) has been transferred >from its temporary private website to its
permanent home: the JewishGen's ShtetLinks.

Mazheik was a small Jewish Shtetl, situated at the northwestern part of
Lithuania, close to the Latvian border.

As with many other Shtetls, Jewish life in Mazheik came to its tragic end in
August 1941, when local Lithuanians initiated and executed mass murder of
most of the local Jewish population.
The MAZHEIK Shtetl Memorial Website was initiated and established by a group
of volunteers, children and grandchildren of Jewish natives of Mazheik,
taking upon them the mission of preserving the memory of this vanished
community.

The new web address of the homepage is:
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Mazeikiai/introduction.html

The main sections of the website are:

- General Geography and History of the town:

Correction #general

Victoria Reed <researchtoldot@...>
 

I have to correct something I posted earlier. My memory was faulty.

In going back over my grandfather's records, I have discovered that on the
U.S. 1920 and 1930 census, his place of birth is listed as "Galicia". However,
on the ship's manifest when he traveled >from England to the United States in
1913, his place of birth is recorded as Vienna.

Celia Male and I are engaged in an email discussion as to why this was notated
this way. If we come up with any clues that would help others, we'll let you
know.

was born in Ostria, which was an alternate name for the town of Ostrog, in
