Shtetls of Belarus and Ekaterinoslav #general

Ellenm626@...
 

I am very interested in finding out why many, many Jews left Belarus
(around 1885 etc.)and went directly to Ekaterinoslav in the Ukraine.
I would greatly appreciate any information concerning this, including
articles and references etc.
Sincerely, Ellen Massie

I would appreciate help with VM216, for a new member of our JGS who is not
on-line.

It is a birth certificate >from 1911, fairly short, half in Polish and half
in Hebrew. A translation of each is needed.

We should also like to know the current name of the birth place.

Re: GOLOMBEK family name #general

Rica Goldberg
 

Dear Richard

There is a family of Golembek's in Manchester, UK. Gerald Golombek lived
next door to my husband's grandmother.

Why don't you write/email the Jewish Telegraph in Manchester. They will
insert something for you in their "Roots" column. The insertion is
absolutely Free of Charge. Isn't that a wondrful gesture on their part?

The address is:- roots@jewish-telegraph.com (Please note - I have no
financial interest whatsoever in this or the newspaper).

Whilst this digest is being distributed to all members of JewishGen, do
other Genners think it might be a good idea to contact their local Jewish
press and suggest that they do the same. The Jewish Telegraph in
Manchester UK waits until it has enought requests to fill a half page and
inserts them together and will even accept old photos etc. They are not
only helping to promote the existence of Jewish Genealogy to people who
have never even thought of it before but they are, of course, uniting many
families across the seas.

Still researching the following:-
1) KAMINSKY(possibly KAMENSHCHIK) >from Yanova(Jonava) nr Kovno,Lithuania
2) Nosson Eliazer, Harris, Joseph and Sarah DIAMOND (possibly DIMONT or

Yehuda LEV >from KROSNIEWICE in Poland; 4) Isaac & Rebecca COHEN - from

Hello, I am researching the above names, especially in the Stepney/Bethnal
Green and Whitechapel areas of London.
Both families were Bakers in these areas 1800's to 1900's.
Any information will be much appreciated.

Best wishes to everyone

VM219 Do you recognise these people? #general

JSwilliams67362@...
 

Dear Jewishgenners,

This is a photo of my great uncle, Harry Levin and his wife, who lived in
South Africa. Harry had a daughter, Rachel who married Samuel and had a
son Bernard. He also had a son Abram, known as "Sunny". It's possible that
he may have had two other daughters, Edna and Lily. I am trying to trace
his descendants - if these are your relatives, please get in touch.

Many thanks,
Judith Williams

Yiddish movie re: The name ALKUNEH #general

Not quite genealogy, but I would love to know where
Barbara Meyers finds a PBS station that shows Yiddish
movies!

Anita Frankel

Last night I came in on the end of a yiddish movie being shown on my
local PBS station. When the credits were run at the end one of the actors
was listed as ALKUNEH. There is no way to tell whether that was the first
or last name. Has anyone ever come across this name? I would love to find
out if this is a given or surname and its origin. >>
