Subject: re: Russian Army Service

I am interested in advice on how to find records of military
service in the Russian Army for my ancestors. I am told my
great grandfather >from Sabile in Kurland was a captured child
and served for 20-25 years. Is it possible to research
records of this?

JOWBR Milestone: One Million Records #latvia

Joyce Field
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce that the JewishGen Online Worldwide
Burial Registry (JOWBR) has now reached a milestone. With the
current quarterly update, this searchable database exceeds one
million records! We have been able to accomplish this feat because
of donations of data and photographs >from hundreds of individuals and
organizations. We also want to thank the translators who assisted by
translating the inscriptions on photographs of matzevot and entering
the data into our template. In addition, as many of you know, JOWBR
could not function without Nolan Altman, Max Heffler, Michael Tobias,
and Warren Blatt.

Following are the number of records added to each country in the past
quarter. There are too many cemeteries and landsmanschaft plots
covered in this update to enumerate. The total number of cemeteries
in JOWBR is now 1,929, and total number of burials is 1,006,675.
New burial records by country follow:

Belarus: 392
Canada: 15,993
Germany: 1,214
Hungary: 28
India: 104
Moldova: 3,410
Romania: 246
Ukraine: 968
USA: 10,074

As you travel this year and visit ancestral towns or towns in your
current country of residence, please consider recording data >from the
Jewish cemeteries and/or photographing all the tombstones in the
cemetery or landsmanschaft plot for JOWBR. Following are the web
sites with information on JOWBR:

How do I correct information in the database? For Fanny Ruthfield buried in
Knights of Zaslav cemetery in Everett Massachusetts it shows the name Binder as
a possible reference to her maiden name. That is incorrect. She was my
grandmother. Her maiden name was Banchik, and she was born in the Ukraine in the
town of Izyzlav. I have her family tree,

In my review of Kolomea school records I found a listing of

in the list the terms z odznacz appeared after their name; for
example as:

Dylinski, Ludwik z odznacz (note this is two terms "z" and "odznacz")

from Poltran web site I got the meaning of z odznacz as "It
Characterize with (from)". Can someone please explain to me what
this means or how the terms are being used in the listing?
Alan,

Its an equivalent of a students that have graduated with honors in
American or Canadian schools. Correct Polish full term is
"odznaczenie". You are dealing with an abbreviation. It does not
matter if it is written: "z odznaczeniem" (graduated with honors),
or "odznaczony" (honored), it means at the end the same.

Students that have completed Polish high school with honors, have
been exempted >from some entries examinations to the universities.
This practice was not used after WWII, but remained valid in Russia.

"Z odznaczeniem" means "with distinction."

I suppose these students received a commendation for their
achievement.

JOWBR Milestone: One Million Records #galicia

Joyce Field
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce that the JewishGen Online Worldwide
Burial Registry (JOWBR) has now reached a milestone. With the current
quarterly update, this searchable database exceeds one million
records! We have been able to accomplish this feat because of
donations of data and photographs >from hundreds of individuals and
organizations. We also want to thank the translators who assisted by
translating the inscriptions on photographs of matzevot and entering
the data into our template. In addition, as many of you know, JOWBR
could not function without Nolan Altman, Max Heffler, Michael Tobias,
and Warren Blatt.

Following are the number of records added to each country in the
past quarter. There are too many cemeteries and landsmanschaft plots
covered in this update to enumerate. The total number of cemeteries
in JOWBR is now 1,929, and total number of burials is 1,006,675.
New burial records by country follow:

Belarus: 392
Canada: 15,993
Germany: 1,214
Hungary: 28
India: 104
Moldova: 3,410
Romania: 246
Ukraine: 968
USA: 10,074

As you travel this year and visit ancestral towns or towns in your
current country of residence, please consider recording data >from

Hello,

I located information which may pertain to my family immigration on the SS Patria
from Hamburg in 1898. I need with the interpretation of words >from 2 separate
documents: VM 11644 - I have circled a column where it refers to "brother-in-law".
Can anyone read the name? VM 11646 - also >from ships records - along with the term
HEB( I'm assuming that is Hebrew), there is another word, probably in German.
If you can translate the word, please let me know.

Many thanks.
