The J in the name is pronounced like an I, and the
name is pronounced like 'Dwoira' in English spelling.
It is not a mistake, although it might look like one!

Re: Advice, Kishinev, Gibany #ukraine

Thanks All for your help. It seems people of this generation liked secrets,
and intended to keep them that way. Miriam Weiner has mentioned that she
felt there were not alot of Jews in Ghibany (75m ssw of Kishinev) during
this time, about 1900) and that Kisha Gibany was most likely Kisha Gubernya.
Any thoughts?

Dear Genners,
Judith asked:
>>>>the name Dewjora is in the polish records >from Warsaw as a given name.
How do you pronounce it. Could it be a mistake and is it a last name?
Does it have a meaning? >>>>

Dewjora ,speak out as De-Wo-y-Ra , is the Yiddish nickname (it is not
really a nickname) to the Biblical Hebrew given name Dewora. She was a
prophet and is mention in the book Judicum (chepter 4 verse 4).
It is a given name and not a family name. The surname Deworkin is a
surname and mean the sun of Dewora.

Belchatow, Poland **Update** #lodz #poland

Dear Researchers,

Belchatow (Latitude 51 deg 22 min, Longitude 19 deg 23 min) is a
small town located in central Poland on the Rakowka River (a
tributary of the Widawka), 23 km (14.3 mi) west of Piotrkow
Trybunalski and 50 km (31 mi) south of Lodz. Currently (since 1999)
it is in the Province of Lodz (lodzkie). Prior to that is was in
the Province of Piotrkow Trybunalski (piotrkowkie). During the time
of the czars (Kingdom of Poland; Congress Poland) it was located in
the guberniya of the same name. Nearby Jewish towns and villlages
include Grocholice (which is now part of Belchatow proper),
Kamiensk, Lask, Pabianice, Piotrkow Trybunalksi, Radomsko, Rozprza,
Sulejow (Silev), Sulmierzyce, Szczercow, Tomaszow Mazowiecki,
Tuszyn, and Widawa.


Many Belchatowers went to Lodz in the 1900s. If your family was
from Lodz, it is possible they first lived in Belchatow. Check out
the surname list on Jewish Records Indexing-Poland You can also get
to this >from the Belchatow ShtetLinks webpage. (Website urls listed
at end of post)

Here is an update about what is NEW on the Belchatow ShtetLinks and
Belchatow Yizkor Book sites

1. An article originally written by J.M. Pukacz was translated into
Polish for a news publication in Belchatow. This delightful story,
now on-line in English, is about the local shoemaker, Chaim-David
Kaufman The timing is perfect for Passover. In it, he discusses the
ritual of preparing and baking matzoth, amongst other activities in
Belchatow.

2. Photos of Belchatow taken before, during, and after the
Holocaust. These recently added photos are located on different
pages on the Shtetlinks site. See Holocaust and Jewish History
pages.

3. The tearing down of the Synagogue in 1956 -- an article written
by the Belchatow Museum Director Dziedzic.

4. Belchatow's Jewish History -- an article written by the same
Director in June 2001.

5. A list of 593 children who were killed in the Chelmno Death Camp
in August 1942.

6. 177 families who paid their contribution for the new Belchatow
Synagogue in 1891.

7. A list of 112 candidates who ran for election to the Kahal's
Jewish Community Concil in 1936. Includes significant information
about the candidates.

8. Photos >from the Haskura at Mt Hebron Cemetery on Sept 1, 2002

9. On the Yizkor Book site for Belchatow: Translation of page 144--
"This is How We Began" by Levi Herzkowicz.

Good luck with your research and Chag Semeach!!

StanRose67@...
 

Two of my family birth certificates, one for 1889 and the other for 1st May
1891 - just three weeks after the Census - show the birth address as 15 Duke
Street, Spitalfields. The Census shows a totally different family living
there. In fact, my family eventually showed up at 15 Code Street, Bethnal
Green!

Is it possible that the Duke Street address had some maternity facilities not
divulged to the enumerator? Or is this a bit far-fetched?

Any suggestions will be welcome.

Hi all
I have a question. My family came >from the village of Novopoltavka.
They lived there for sure in 1850 and nowadays I am trying to find out
from where and when did they got there.
I learned that during the 19th century many Jews left >from Lithuania and
Latvia to the western Ukraine (where Novopoltavka is) and would like to
ask if there are researches, like me, that their family made the same trip
in the mid of the 19th century. In that way I hope to get more information
of these people and the way they moved between the countries.
Thanks in advance and *Happy Passover*!

New York cemeteries Thank you #general

Peter Zimmer <Zimmer-Luedinghausen@...>
 

I want to thank all the people whoanswered my question how to find the
cemetery where my relatives is buried.

Most of you gave me the advice to obtain his death certificate >from New
York.
One lady offered me to phone some of the cemeteries for me - and after
some hours e-mailed me the cemetery where Henry Lang is buried.

Now there are 7000 kilometers between New York and where I live. Perhaps I
can find someone to visit the cemetery for me and take a photo but I think
I will post an extra request with a new header.

It is Mount Hebron cemetery (Flushing, Queens, New York). I have the
complete information about the situation, block, line etc. And the name
Hirsch and Schwartz of the burial society.
Isn't this this wonderful.

I want to thank her again and of course all of you.
I received more than 30 replies to many to answer them all.
