Re: Finding contact for Wolko Goldenberg from Teofipol #ukraine

Charna&Bob Duchanov
 

You asked about a possible 'real' first name for Walko. According to the
book Russian -Jewish Given Names by Boris Feldblyum, Valko/ Walko is a
version of Veniamin, which is a Hebrew version of Benjamin. According to the
author, this version of Veniamin appeared primarily in the Volhyn area,
which is present day Zhitomir, Rovno, Luts'k, and Volhyn.

FLATTO family - does anyone want these certificates? #unitedkingdom

wilsonettess@...
 

Dear friends,

I purchased 2 marriage certs. for the FLATTO family - however they are not
the one I was seeking, thus if anyone is researching their Flatto family
pls. contact me privately and I shall send you the certs. - they
are as follows:-
1904 1st Sept - Marriage at the New Syn - London - Abraham Max Flatto
aged 23, fancy drapery merchant - 22 Commercial St., son of Isaacher
(Sucher) who was a lace trimming importer, to:- Annie Bloch age 24 ,
41 Whitechapel Rd, daughter of John Bloch who was a shipping agent.

1904 5th Nov - Marriage at the Register Office in St. George in the
East - Max Flatto aged 29 a confectioner, 4 Berner St, son of Jacob
Flatto a confectioner to:- Etty Haet aged 21, 4 Berner St, daughter of
Moses Leib (deceased) leather dresser.

I am aware of one person to whom the above certs. were relevant but they
purchased them before I did, but knowing that the Flatto family is a large
one perhaps these certs. will help others. I did eventually obtain the
correct cert.

Yizkor Book Project, April 2015 #unitedkingdom

bounce-2954068-785714@...
 

Shalom,

I was pleased to see that during April, quite a few of our "veteran" and
newer Yizkor Book projects made great leaps and bounds in the translations
and pictures that were added in during this month. Some of the projects are
now just a hairsbreadth away of being completely translated and this has
only come about through the perseverance and dedication of the coordinators
involved in them and, of course, the generous financial support of donors
and the selfless, conscientious volunteers behind the scenes. Still, to
continue this sacred work we are always in need of further financial support
and if you are able to assist in any way to one of the 75 or so Translation
Funds appearing at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
you will have done your piece in helping present generations and those to
come, to read and learn about our lost communities.

Something that also pleased me greatly was that Joel Alpert, the Yizkor Book
in Print Project Coordinator, recently informed me that the 37th Yizkor Book
in Print publication - the "Stawiski Memorial Book" has now become
available. My thanks go out to the YBIP team that made this possible and to
Jan Meisels Allen for leading this project >from its inception to this
publishing stage. Joel also pointed out that it is now three years since the
Yizkor Book in Print Project first began rolling out these unique books and
remarkable achievements have been achieved over this time for this, another
round of applause is definitely forthcoming to his team.

Now to facts and figures for April.

LONG AGO POSTING FROM 1996 FOR FRIEZE / GOLDSTEIN FAMILIES #unitedkingdom

Ann Rabinowitz
 

Today, I received an inquiry >from Carole Davies from
Leeds about a posting I made to JewishGen in 1996 as follows:

Anyone having any info on the FRIEZE or GOLDSTEIN families who came from
Kudirkos Naumiestis (formerly Vlodislovov) or Sakiai (formerly Szaki) in
Suwalki Guberniya now Lithuania , please let me know. I am posting this
for someone who is not on the Internet.

Immediately, I was struck by what an historical matter this was as the posting
contained the first email address I ever had with Prodigy which no longer
exists. It was typed on one of the first computers I ever had which was
a second hand one that had been given to me by a friend >from work.

The computer had been the result of research accomplished by genealogy's
very own brilliant Stephen P. Morse, the father of the 8086
processor. I remember that the computer finally crashed forever
and I lost all of my e-mails and therefore anything relating to the posting.
I did not have Family Tree Maker genealogy software back then either or I
could have turned to it for help in responding to Carole Davies inquiry.

It reminded me how many people back then were not on the Internet and
depended on family and friends to assist them in posting their inquiries
to JewishGen. Now, the rules of JewishGen Moderators do not allow posting
for others. I can see why as the name of the person who really wanted the
information is not provided in my posting and therefore will remain a
mystery after all of these years.

In those years, I often posted for Holocaust survivors who were searching
for their families >from Lithuania and wanted to reconnect . . . perhaps this
posting was for one of them. The posting was made in March, 1996, which
was just after I would have attended the Annual Litvisher Luncheon, an event
which Holocaust survivors >from Lithuania attended in great numbers and which
no longer occurs.

In addition, as I type this posting, I will add the LitvakSIG digest to the
recipients as this will direct the information to individuals, who most
likely will have an interest in the shtetls and families >from there mentioned
in the posting of so long ago.

So, Carole Davies, daviescarole@sky.com, I am sorry I cannot help you this
time, but perhaps since the world of genealogy has enlarged so much since
1996 you will get an answer to your inquiry and someone will respond to this
posting!!!!

Good luck!!!

JCR-UK SIG #UnitedKingdom LONG AGO POSTING FROM 1996 FOR FRIEZE / GOLDSTEIN FAMILIES #unitedkingdom

Ann Rabinowitz
 

Today, I received an inquiry >from Carole Davies from
Leeds about a posting I made to JewishGen in 1996 as follows:

Anyone having any info on the FRIEZE or GOLDSTEIN families who came from
Kudirkos Naumiestis (formerly Vlodislovov) or Sakiai (formerly Szaki) in
Suwalki Guberniya now Lithuania , please let me know. I am posting this
for someone who is not on the Internet.

Immediately, I was struck by what an historical matter this was as the posting

Finding contact for Wolko Goldenberg from Teofipol #ukraine

Marilyn Levinson
 

Dear Jewish genners
I have found an ancestor who is listed on the New York Passenger lists
1820-1957 line 21 as Walko Goldenberg who is >from Teofipol Ukraine. This is the home of my
great grandmother whose maiden name was Miriam Goldenberg. I need help
in reading the name and address of the person to whom Walko is going.
I also wonder if any one might take a guess at what the "real" first name
of Walko might be. Could it be Wolf or some variation of Malkie? Wolko was
traveling on the Hamburg line so whomever was putting down his name I
imagine spoke German. Thank you for your help.
