The name of the person follows the word "cousin", and consists of
an initial and a surname. >>

Tarachovsky, Petcha gubernia, Yekaterinoslav etc #ukraine

Saul Marks <saulmarks@...>
 

Dear List members,

My TARACHOVSKY, KATSEV (later Kaitiff) & ZILBER (later Silver) families came
to Britain and the USA >from the Ukraine. We know the Zilber family came >from
Odessa, but we now have 4 possible places of origin for the Tarachovsky
family:

"PETCHA GUBERNIA": Family legend says they came >from here, but I've never
been able to find it. Could it be a Yiddish name for one of the main Ukraine
gubernias?

BACHMACH: Name given to us with great confidence by a well-informed family
member.

YEKATERINOSLAV: Every branch of the Tarachovsky family apart >from our own
says, in total confidence, that the family came >from here.

"BORISNA, RUSSIA": Stated on the Ellis Island website on the immigration
records of some of the Tarachovskys in 1910, but the ShtetlSeeker gave
nothing suitable.

My questions to you are as follows:

1. Do the surnames TARACHOVSKY (or similar) or KATSEV come into your
research?
2. Did they come >from any of "Petcha gubernia", Bachmach, Yekaterinoslav or
"Borisna"?
3. Do you know which gubernia was called "Petcha"?
4. Do you know where Borisna was?
5. Does the surname ZILBER, >from Odessa, come into your research? I believe
this was a family which suffered virtually total annihilation in pogroms.

Any replies will be very much appreciated, either to this list or privately
at saulmarks@... .

Many thanks,

Does any have any info on Yampol ?

My father was born in Jompol (at least that's how he listed it) Podolia in
1915, which I believe is current day Yampol.

Ship Records #ukraine

Errol Schneegurt
 

I have a question that the answer seems obvious.
On the ship manifests there are columns that relates to the persons ability
to read and write. The notations on the ones that I am looking at are
overwhelming yes to both questions. I would have to assume that they are
referring to the persons native language and maybe Yiddish in the case of a
Jewish person.

Re: Reversing names #belarus

Adarelanab@...
 

I can only echo what Rachelle Berliner said about reversing names while
searching. I was searching for my father's (Yale Belinkoff) naturalization
record at the Laguna Niguel, CA, National Archives. Ultimately they were
found filed under Yale, rather than under Belinkoff. Certainly no one could
consider that a mixup of two possible first names.

Passports #ukraine

Errol Schneegurt
 

I would like to know what a person would need to supply to the controlling
authorities in the Eastern European countries and Russia in order to get an
approved passport before 1920. I am assuming that at minimum some record of
birth would have been needed.
I know that when my father came here in 1927 he had to answer verbal
questions asked by a person at the American Embassy in Lviv. One of the
questions was "how many legs does an American chicken have"?

Re: PADDINGTON, AMOR, LEOPOLDHARTE in the UK #general

Barb & Howard
 

As a guide at the Manchester Jewish Museum in Manchester
England one meets a lot of interesting people,today the following dropped
in my lap and I promised to help if I can, I have more information
available if I make positive contact.
Mr PADDINGTON >from the south coast is looking for his and his wifes
roots,His late Mothers name was Lillie AMOR she was born in Moss Side,
Manchester.
His wifes single name was Judith HARTE her Father was Arthur LEOPOLDHARTE
he was born on Cheetham Hill Road,Manchester 7th February 1898.
All the members of the family who could have helped are dead, and whenever
questions were asked over the years they were met with a wall of silence.
It is beleived that somewhere their forbears were Jewish hence the silence
it is assumed that they married out of the faith
the Paddingtons are eager to trace their lost family.
Any information please, at the moment I am the only contact.

---Since this is a wild guess, here goes. Look up Indur in Belarus, Its

route to chicago in 1910 era #general

Marty Meyers <meyers01@...>
 

I'm told that someone came to visit relatives in Chicago sometime between
1905 and 1915, thought the new world was 'treif' and went back to Europe.

I find no record of him coming through Ellis Island. Can someone tell me
if there were other common entry points, during those years, for people
going to Chicago?

Thanks,

Marty Meyers
