Shtetl help needed #lithuania

joniffer3@...
 

My cousin Moshe YUTER (later Rabbi Moses ETTER) was born in Kupiskis
and married a woman named Sheine around the year 1908. The marriage
record can't be found. According to various Ellis Island manifests,
their children (Levik, Samuel, Sara & Leiba ETTER) were all born in a
town called Scheschensk, Chechersk or Chilhersk, 'Russia'. Every document
has a different spelling. My ShtetlSeeker searches have revealed no
Lithuanian towns resembling this name. Does anyone have any ideas where
this town may have been located? The 'Chilhersk' annotation also includes
a gubern. called "Homler".

Thanks for any help you might be able to provide!

Searching TEICHMAN etc..., now: What happens to landsmanshaft records? #general

Ron Goldman
 

I've been thinking along these lines, giving them to YIVO. It would be ideal
if anyone in the WPB area of FL could take them to NY and deliver them there
on the next trip/visit to the City. Everything is in one attache case.

As an archivist, I hope Ron Goldman's next step, having found these records,
is to make arrangements to donate them to an appropriate archives.

POVLOTSKY #ukraine

MERYL RIZZOTTI
 

My family, named Povlotsky (and various spellings)
left Ukraine and traveled to Philadelphia via
Liverpool. However, the ship manifest stated they were
picked up before going to Liverpool >from Hango,
Finland. Actually, all of the passengers leaving from
Hango were listed as having a nationality of
Russ-Finn. I am fairly certain that they were not
Finnish. They also came >from Elizavetgrad,
Zvenigorodka and Shpola according to various documents
I have found. The ship passage was paid in
Philadelphia and sent to Elizavetgrad. Has anyone ever
found people >from that area leaving >from Finland to
the US? One of the Povlotsky women married a man samed
Sroel Braun who later changed the name to Brown. So if
anyone out there knows about the Braun/Browns I would
like to know.

additional ZEITLIN research #belarus

nucdoc1@...
 

In recent days there have been a number of postings searching for Zeitlin
ancestors. I must assume its a common name in Belarus.

I am also researching my grandmother's family and would appreciate any help or
connections that might be offered.

My grandmother, Anna ZEITLIN, was born in the Mogilev region in 1873. She was
born either in Mogilev or a stetl in that region, possibly Lupolov or Selets
(Shiletz) . Both of her parents died when she was 13. She had a brother who
worked in Mogilev in a dry goods store. An alternate spelling for ZEITLIN is
TZEITLIN. She married my grandfather Ellis Orechkin and emigrated to Windsor,
Ontario, Canada in 1895.

There are many TZEITLINS listed in the Database of Shoah victims >from Mogilev
and the surrounding area-especially Selets. I suspect that some may be family
members of mine.

I recently came across a copy online of a Romanian birth certificate of a
Hinda Beila STREIFU >from Iasi- whose extended family I have been
researching. I wonder if someone could translate it and post it to me at
reuven-s@netmedia.co.il. The birth certificate is located at
www.soletsky.com and is labeled there as Birth Certificate (front) and
Birth Certificate (back).

Thanks.
