Rezekne, the green synagogue and the Jewish cemetery #latvia

Subject:Rezekne, the green synagogue and the Jewish cemetery.
From: Christine Usdin
usdine@...

Dear all,
The cemetery of Rezekne is just beautiful and situated on a hudge hilly land
not far >from the Daugavpils-Rezekne road. But it's very sad to see it
completely abandoned. Most graves lie beneath the grass, moss etc. and are
inaccessible.Nothing has been done for decades but I imagine the immensity
of the restoration work.
This cemetery is one of the most beautiful I have visited.I photographied
only the "new" tombstones and some old ones, of which epitath could be read.
My question is: there is a grave down the hill, all alone and you access
there by stairs .Whose grave is it?(writen in hebrew)

I have posted image 13765 in Viewmate. It is part of a page >from the Pinkas
Kovel in Hebrew, and while I cannot read Hebrew, I am guessing it is the
Table of Contents. I wanted to get it translated so I could get a sense of
the material since I hope to undertake a project to get it translated.

The direct address is:

Translation needed #ukraine

jfquaile166@...
 

Good morning,

I would appreciate any assistance with my viewmate post VM13766 at
www.jewishgen.org/viewmate. I believe the family to be related to
either the Kasanofsky, Smogarinsky or Kholmetzsky branches.

Thank you in advance for your help to translate, what I believe is
Yiddish to English.

Re: tracing back within Ukraine #ukraine

Jim:

In my limited experience (re Zhitomir):

Archivists very professional and desire to be helpful.

Some regional archives have separate sections for Jewish records, which
are generally in both Yiddish and Ukrainian.

Local Jewish community organization (Chabad) requests funds to transmit
data request to archivist and allegedly follow-up in dynamic search, but
one might well question whether any serious follow-up is attempted. I
think direct communication with archive probably just as effective.

Birth, marriage and death records are generally organized as follows:
1) region,
2) interval of a few years (interval not entirely consistent),
3) alphabetical by last name.

So knowing the region, approximate birthdate, and last name may bring
some success. Of course, there are many gaps.

original records (birth,marriage,etc) or simply establish more detail

french root in the cognac area of france dating back to 1600
I would be interested to find out how come the name bacame russian,
the only thing I do know is that my grandmother and perhaps my
grandfather came form crimea before they settled in Yekaterinaslav.

of a vine is called a SOUCHOT!!!.
Any clarificaiton on the subjct would be gratefully appreciated

Hi All,

New member here. I'm researching couple of families >from Elisavetrgad
(Kirovohrad) and Zlatopol (Novomyrhorod) and the only two sources of
archives I could find here, in USA, are the Mormon microfilms and
Roots to Roots foundation listings. I can not, however, find any
1900-1940 pre-WWII vital records on Zlatopol in RTR foundation database.
Does that mean the recrods do not exist or it is possible RTR did not
add everything to their database? How comprehensive RTR database is
and how well it reflects what is preserved in ukraine? Anybody had
experience of dealing with local archives in Kiev or other places?

Thanks!
Boris
Cliffisde Park, NJ

P.S. families that I am researching are:
Zlatopol: Kanivetskiy, Kotlyarevskiy, Berchanskiy
Kirovohrad: Kotlyarevskiy, Dubinitskiy, Tolkatir/Tolkatsir


Due date for the next JOWBR update #ukraine

The next JOWBR data submission cutoff date will be November 30, 2009.
All data templates and photo files received by that date will be
