Hi

Just want to remind everyone that the joint meeting of the Rokiskis SIG and
the Kupiskis SIG will be held on Monday, August 3 at 5 pm.

Rokiskis (Rokishok) and Kupiskis (Kupishok) are towns in northeastern
Lithuania, not far >from Panevezys and >from Daugavpils (Dvinsk), Latvia. If
you have family or think you might have family >from these towns or nearby
towns, please join us.

Many people >from Rokiskis and Kupiskis moved to Dvinsk and back because of
its proximity. Don't be afraid to join us because we're Litvaks -:)

Request for help with Galician research #galicia

Sharon/Peter Haas <haases@...>
 

Hi Fellow SIGers,

I would be very grateful for help >from any kind-hearted person
who’s a bit proficient with early 19th century Galician genealogy
records, and willing to provide some inputs. I have made
extensive use of the “JRI-Poland Search Database”, as well as the
"All-Poland" one and also JOWBR, and have been able to trace my
maternal ancestors back to Tarnow, Poland (Krakow Wojewodztwa).
Trouble is, I’ve now run into dead ends and don’t know how to
proceed to go further back in time. The help I would welcome
falls into the following:


1. As a general rule, is one usually able to find more extensive
b/m/d information in LDS or PSA records, than what is available
within the JRI-Poland database?


2. Two recurring Galician surnames I run into, sound neither
Polish, nor Austrian. How can I go about tracing their
more-or-less “origins”?

a. BATIST
b. MAREHSE/MARESSE/MARCHSE

3. How might I go about finding b/m/d info (hopefully on-line)
on the following ancestors. I’m pretty sure they’re all >from the
Krakow Wojewodztwa (or possibly Vienna, Austria).

a. The parents of Hersz LANDAU (who was born 1827)
b. The parents of Mendel BATIST (who was born 1817)
c. The parents of Golde BATIST (who was born 1808)
d. The parents of Josef FALEK (who was born 1845)
e. The parents of Sara MARCHSE/MARESSE/MAREHSE
(who was born 1852)

Thanks for your consideration.

Meaning of AGAD Birth Record Entry #galicia

Alan Weiser <alanboy@...>
 

What does entry Goldstein/Weiss mean?

In the JRI-PL AGAD birth indexes I find listings such as
Goldstein/Weiss. I know there are special meanings when names are
separated by an f, r or v; such as, Fine r Gold. What does it
mean when there are no intervening letters? I find this mostly
under Maiden Name of the birth mother in the birth indexes.

KOPLAN family of San Antonio, Dallas & Houston--Charlette Marline KOPLAN #general

Jim Bennett <Bennett@...>
 

On behalf of a close friend here in Haifa, I'm searching
for the descendants of:

Winnie KOPLAN, yes, with an "O" b. about 1865 in Russia, and her kids:
Morris/Morrie KOPLAN b. 1889 in Dallas
Romie KOPLAN b. 1895 in Texas
Herman KOPLAN b. 1896 in Texas

In 1910 the whole family lived in San Antonio, with an uncle, Ike WOLBERG.

Morrie KOPLAN married Hanna KAMINSKY in about 1935 and a daughter,
Charlette Marline KOPLAN was bon in Houston in 1937.

Charlette probably married and may still live in Texas.

Russian Consular Records #general

Selma Neubauer <sweethawk2@...>
 

Does anyone out there remember the Russian Consular Records? If you're a
newbie, you probably never heard of RCR. Hope you're coming to the
Conference in Philadelphia beginning on August 2 - there's an easier
way to use the records.

In May 2009 I undertook a project at the National Archives,
Mid-Atlantic Branch (NARA), Philadelphia, PA in honor of JGSGP
hosting the 2009 Conference. With NARA's permission and the help of
their interns, I copied the Idex to the Russian Consular Records (RCR)
from the microfilm. The 800 page index represents all of the records
at all of the repositories, Philadelphia being one.

With the help of seven JGSGP volunteers, only the Philadelphia records
were highlighted and color-coded. The 800 pages are now in eight
3-ring binders with instructions on how to use the index and the
records.

One of the difficulties in using the RCR is working out the
Daitch-Mokotoff soundex code. About halfway through the highlighting,
one of the volunteers reminded me that Steve Morse has soundex codes on
his "One-Step" page. Researching the RCR in Philadelphia is now much
easier. If all goes well, the binders will be at the upcoming Conference,
at the NARA table/booth on Sunday August 2 at the Repository Fair, and
NARA will permit the binders to remain in the Research Room during
the Conference.

Hope to see you all at the Conference!

Info about Kabaki village #belarus

Harvey Kabaker
 

I am looking for information about Kabaki village, Kosov district,
Stanislav province, Poland [today in Belarus]. My surname literally
stands for a person who came >from Kabaki.

I found a 2002 interview with Amalia Laufer, then living in Ukraine and
a native of Kabaki, here:
http://www.centropa.org/index.php?nID=54&bioID=197
She was born around 1915. She says Kabaki was a Ukrainian village. She
also mentions a nearby village, Kuty, which was predominantly Jewish.

I am interested in the period of the 19th century because, if my
ancestors really originated in Kabaki, they had migrated to Seirijai in
the Suwalki area of today's Lithuania by the 1850s or earlier.

Thank for any info.

BTW, I'll be attending Philly2009 next month.

Thank you JewishGen!

A fellow Genner found the book my GGGF published on hebrewbook.com
and emailed me a link to it! On the one hand, it unfortunately did
not have any genealogical information in it but at least I finally
saw the book!
