PODMAZO #belarus

Susan Slusky <segslusky@...>
 

My family in Borisov (Barysaw) appears to have been the PODMAZOs
although they used Mazin in this country based on the evidence >from
the naturalization petition I found.

Mazo is said to be an acronym for mi zera Aharon. And Pod is a
Russian preposition meaning under. So what does that make Podmazo?
Some sort of lesser branch of the family? Perhaps it is significant
that when they changed the name here the pod was dropped. Maybe that
made them higher class?

The list of WWII dead in Borisov includes several Mazos and a couple
of Podmazos. And there are a number of Podmazos in the Ellis Island
database immigrating >from Borisov.

Anyone know something about the name?

A new Project Fund on the Rom-SIG site - Storojinets! #romania

Rosanne Leeson
 

Dear fellow Rom-SIGgers,

An important new project has been announced by Brooke Schreier Ganz, to
clean up and document the Jewish cemetery in Storojinets formerly in
Bukovina, now Stororzhynets in Ukraine. It is only 12 miles/20km
southwest of Czernowitz (Chernivtsi).

No 18th or 19th Jewish century records are known to have survived >from here,
just a few early 20th century ones. But the cemetery has 18th, 19th and 20th
century burials, and it is in decent shape. Smaller Bukovinian towns may
have also used this cemetery.

Brooke's project is raising money to document it all, photograph and
transcribe everything. They are raising money. All photos and data
will be made available as public domain, and will also be sent to
JOWBR, and anyone else who wants it! Student interns >from the
Chernivtsi Museum of History and Culture of Bukovinian Jews are doing
the work, riding 45 minutes to the site. They will be taking at least 2
photos of every tombstone, and will even mark the locations on a
newly-created map of the whole cemetery (section,row,number).

The newer half of the cemetery is in very good shape, but the older half
is full of weeds. The money needed to be raised (about $2000.) will be
to pay for the clean up of the weedy area, and also includes the cost of
eventual transcription/translation work. And all donations are tax
deductible through JewishGen! Here is the link to the Rom-SIG
JewishGen-erosity site so you can make those donations to the
Storojinets Cemetery Documentation Project :

Looking for a very specific record in a specific LDS film relating to Stanislwow #galicia

Steve Jaron
 

Hi,

I hope everyone who was there had a good conference.

Anyway a recent discovery at my cousin's house after the conference has
given me the death date for my 2nd Great Grandfather Aron Moshe
TILLINGER. So now I am wondering if anyone of you out there in Gesher
Galicia-land has easy access to LDS film 2439556 and can find the death
record for Aron on 26 March 1929. Based on the date it should be close
to the end of the first section or the beginning of the second section. I
can always order the film myself but I figured I would try this way first.

Please respond privately and thanks in advance!

-Steve

Yeshiva in Kiev between the two world wars #ukraine

דוד נ.א.
 

There is a rumor in the family grandfather Shlomo Zalman Geller (born
1897) studied at a yeshiva in Kiev.

Does anyone know the Yeshiva held in Kiev between the two world wars?

I know that for the period certain, there was a Yeshiva Navahrudak
(Alter of Novardok died there), but is there some sort of list of
students >from that period?

Maybe there were other Yeshives? There are lists of students?

Thank you very much in advance

Re: From Jewish Genealogical Conference in Seattle #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi Bessarabian researchers,

I want to congratulate all who came to Seattle. It was a terrific time with wonderful lectures, seminars
and conversations.

I would like personally thank Matthew Mishory for a great film he brought to the conference. Thanks to
all who participated in the discussion after the film. We had a very meaningful conversation about the
film and preservation of Jewish heritage in Moldova.

I also think that we had a very good conversation at the Migration to Bessarabia lecture. You can read
excerpts >from the this lecture as well as Bessarabia Maps (see below).

Many thanks to all volunteers who helped at the ShareFair - Bessarabia SIG table, who were active at
the lecters, our Board Meeting.


(Bessarabia SIG Luncheon with presentation: Bessarabian Maps >from 18 century: >from Military
Topographic maps to town and shteitle maps. I think that this was a very good session with a lot of
feet back >from our group. As I have heard after the session, our members did not know about some
of the maps I presented at the lecture. Here is a direct link to the set of slides for the presentation:
www.jewishgen.org/Bessarabia/files/conferences/2016/BessarabianMaps.pdf

Lecture: When, Why and Where >from the Jews Arrived in Bessarabia/Moldova. (35-40 people came
the session). That topic one was always on my list, and this is a culmination of my research. Here is a
direct link to the set of slides:
www.jewishgen.org/Bessarabia/files/conferences/2016/MigrationToBessarabia.pdf)

For me it was a place to meet old and make new friends.

During the conference I had an important conversation with representative >from FamilySearch, who
said that FamilySearch are going back to Moldova Archives to photograph more records >from
Moldovan Archives, and that we agree of mutual help to each other organization. More details I will
write later when our agreement will be finalized.

All the best,

Instead of expending lots of time and resources to try to change the
law, I would instead investigate the legality of your uploading your
DNA via another jurisdiction. It all depends on whether the laws you
reference are directed at persons wishing to upload their DNA or are
prohibitions against the online platforms, such as Geni. If it is the
former then I would not advise you or anyone to violate the law. But if
the law is of the latter variety, then there would be no reason not to
submit the DNA by proxy via another jurisdiction where there are no such
prohibitions. This would be a legal use of your DNA information property
and would be similar to the actions people sometimes take to access
Wikipedia, Google, or Facebook in places where censorship of these
platforms exists.

I wonder if you could share what you have heard is the reasoning behind
such anti-DNA uploading regulations?

Cordially,
Adam Cherson
