What differences are there in history of Jews in Ukraine vs Russia? #ukraine

CAROLYNR
 

Hello,

When I was a child, family said we were Russian. The census records nearly
all said my GOLDBERG grandparents came >from Russia or Poland, depending on
the year. Later, I figured out they came >from Gorodok and Kolki in Volin,
Ukraine. Now watching current events, I wonder about what their lives were
like in Ukraine circa 1900 versus what they would have been if they lived
in Russia.

At some time they had moved to England and eventually by 1903-1906, to the
U.S. I know this period was very bad for Jews economically and politically, and why so many fled to the U.S. or South America, but can anyone explain
what may have been different between Ukraine and Russia at that time?

Thanking you all in advance,

Re: Russian naming patterns #ukraine

davidnsandler@...
 

Marilyn, sounds reasonable to me that it's the same Pinhas, born 1860.
Can you explain what the Zhitomir synagogue records consist of? As you
may know, there is a fair amount of census data on Jews in Chudnov
located in the Zhitomir archive. Thanks and good luck, Dave Sandler,

Subject: [ukraine] Russian naming patterns

My research into the YANUSHPOLSKI family of Chudnov, Yanushpol, and the
Zhitomir area is progressing rapidly thanks to all you wonderful people
who have helped me in the last two days. Thanks so much for all the
information and guidance you have provided. I think I have discovered
two great uncles and some possibilities for finding living relatives.

All of my research is based on old synagogue records found by a
researcher in Zhitomir two years ago. The records were sporadic and
some leaps had to be made. Before I proceed I want to make sure these
leaps were legitimate assumptions. Do these assumptions make sense
according to Russian/Jewish naming patterns at the time?

My grandfather was named Mordko-Volf ben Pinhas YANUSHPOLSKI.(b. about
1889) His full name was found on birth records of three of his
children, and those records also included my grandmother, Kreina bat
Gershon. My grandmother's name was Kreina, nee FIGLER. That is how I
know those records actually name my grandfather. The children whose
records were found were born in Chudnov or Visokaya Pech. (Not all
records were found, including my father's, who was born in Chudov in
1919.)

The researcher also found two records for Moishe, (b. 1897) and Haskel
(b. 1903), both born in Visokaya Pech, of Pinhas Mordko ben Volf
YANUSHPOLSKI , >from Yanushpol, and mother, Rukhiya Hava. (This Khaskel
is the one found on Yad Vashem, born to Pinkhas and Rakhel.) We are
assuming Pinhas is my great grandfather and these two sons were
brothers of my grandfather, or my great uncles.

Finally, she found a record of Pinhas YANUSHPOLSKI, (b. 1860) to Mordko
Volf ben Yankel YANUSHPOLSKI and Genya. We are assuming this is the
birth record of my great grandfather and that his father is my great
great grandfather.

Since I don't have a record that directly ties my (assumed) great
grandfather, Pinhas Mordko ben Volf, to my grandfather, Mordko-Volf ben
Pinhas, is there any reason to doubt that this lineage is correct? Is
there any reason to doubt that the Pinhas born in 1860 to Mordko Volf
ben Yankel is not the same Pinhas who was the father of Moishe and
Haskel?

Thanks again for all your help!

This Basic 2 course is a series of exercises that will take you on a
guided tour of the paths and byways that make up JewishGen's massive
website. You will visit the links that connect the composite databases,
projects, SIGs and open up the wonders of JewishGen.

The course does not require you to have started your genealogy projects.
It is for those who wish to grasp the intricacies of the JewishGen
website. You do not need the original surname or the name of your
immigrant town.

All JG classes are open 24/7 to accommodate members who live around the
world. Enrollment is now open. Registration is limited and will close
once the class is fully enrolled.

Yizkor Book Project, February 2015 #latinamerica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Time and tide wait for no man and certainly not the Yizkor Book Project.
Although we seemed to have quickly run out of the days of February, quite
a deal was achieved within the YB Project during February 2015.

In particular, we received quite a number of translations >from volunteer
translators who dedicate their knowledge and time in helping to move our
project forward. Translation, however, is not only the aspect of our project
in which volunteers play a major role and the Yizkor Book Project is
definitely volunteer orientated. Volunteers lend their support in editing,
coordinating projects, typing up text, transliterating necrologies,
transcribing text into Excel files, scanning books, scanning photos and the
list goes on. Volunteers are also those who make the Yizkor Book in Print
Project happen and who take part in the many facets involved in preparing
the completed translations in formats appropriate for publishing. All these
volunteers do outstanding work and we are truly indebted to the remarkable
resources their continuing efforts provide within the Yizkor Book Project.
So if I have raised your interest and you would like to be involved in one
of the fields I have noted, I would be certainly glad to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for February.

Meta Jacoby #latinamerica

Carol Jaffe
 

Hi All,

I recently joined this sig group hoping I could find burial
information for my grandfather's sister.

Her name was Meta ABRAHAM JACOBY she was born in Oscherleben, Germany
on 18 June 1876. She married Mr JACOBY (first name unk) and they had
a son Max JACOBY. At the time of WW2 they all fled to Argentina, I
believe to Buenos Aires. I've been told she died there and would like
to try and find which cemetery she is in. Her husband did not stay in
Argentina whether he returned to Germany I don't know. Their son Max
did return to Germany and he is buried in Berlin. Meta was the
daughter of Moritz & Sophie Selig ABRAHAM.

Thanks for any help or which direction to go.
