Visiting Ukraine..Narodici #ukraine

Susan Stone <momteller@...>
 

Hello All.

Has anyone recently visited Narodici (near Chernobyl/Kiev)? I am thinking of going this summer and would appreciate a response (privately) if you have info on
what the town is like..I have read about it online but would like an update. If you can recommend a translator, too. that would be good.

Lastly, in an obituary in chicago of my grandfather's brother, I found that my grandfather and his siblings had another sibling...a sister...and her full married name is listed. She stayed in Ukraine and all the rest came here. Any ideas on how I can find her descendents?

Thank you,

Re: INTRO-Researching ZIRBES Family in Sengendorf, Neuwied, Rhineland-Pfalz 17th Century #germany

Gerhard Buck <buckidstein@...>
 

The correct place name is Segendorf, now part of Neuwied. ZIRBES is a
still wide spread family name in the Rhineland. Therefore this ancestor
was not Jewish. A useful website for such information is the telephone
directory www.dasoertliche.de <http://www.dasoertliche.de>. Search for a
family name and a map appears, which shows you where in Germany a person
with this name lives.

When you look for genealogical information on the internet about a
family or a place, search for "name + Genealogie". In this case,
"Segendorf Genealogie" and "Zirbes Genealogie" will present you the
books and sources (Familienbuecher) that have been published for this village.

question re ALBA IULIA #romania

yehoshafat.pop@...
 

Shalom to all of you,

A friend of mine >from Rosh Pina is looking to find information on her
father who apparently was born in Alba Iulia, in 1925.
His name was Egon (Ron - in Israel he went by the name Ron) Rosental
(I am not sure how they spelled Rosental then, either with a z or th
or both...).
As far as the daughter remembers, her father's parents names were
Moritz and Margareta.

I would like to help this friend. She is looking to find documentation
about her father, but is not sure where to look for. Neither is she a
hundred percent sure that he was born in Alba Iulia, apparently he
made aliyah to Israel >from Alba Iulia , Romania.

If anyone has an idea how to help, and who we can address on this
issue, I would greatly appreciate it,

best regards

Three very interesting 1875 lists translated for Lida and Vasilishki (in the Lida District) #belarus

Jrbaston
 

Dear fellow Lida District researchers:

I'm delighted to let you know that we've translated
three very interesting 1875 Lists of Men >from the Lida District.

Two are >from Lida town <LID_LID_1_1875_men> (595 individuals)
and <LID_LID_2_1875_men> (679 individals), and one from
Vasilishki <LID_VAS_1875_men> (1,873 individuals). Despite
the names of these files, they contain many people who are either
residing or are registered in Lida District towns other than Lida
and Vasilishki.

<LID_LID_1> is divided by the streets on which people lived --
look for the orange-highlighted rows with "Novy Gorod Street,"
"near the Pharmacy" and other information about a family's
location in Lida. This file also contains some physical descriptions
and ages.

There is a surname list for these files at the bottom of our site's
homepage (https://lidadistrict.shutterfly.com), under Surname Lists.

While these files will eventually be publicly searchable in
the LitvakSIG All-Lithuania Database and the JewishGen
Belarus Database, they are currently available only to
participants in the LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group.

To become part of the LitvakSIG Lida District Research
Group, a qualifying contribution of $100 to LitvakSIG
will guarantee you access to Excel Files of all translations
-- new and old -- of Lida District records through December
31, 2021.

To contribute, please go to:
https://www.litvaksig.org/membership-and-contributions/join-and-contribute/
Click on "Research Groups for Districts and Gubernias" and
choose Lida District.

Your contribution will not only provide you access to these files,
it will help us translate the 1905 Family Lists for Lida town, Orlya,
Radun and Shchuchin. And because we have been able to
obtain a matching grant, everything you contribute will be
doubled and help us reach our goal twice as fast!

Please let me know if you have any questions,

The JGS of Greater Boston presents "Everyday Jewish Life in Tsarist Russia" Feb 5 #general

Ellie Goldberg

Newton Centre, MA 02459. Admission is free for members and their
friends, $5 for non-members. Refreshments will be served.

JGSGB's February speaker is Brandeis professor and author, ChaeRan
Freeze who will talk about her latest book, Everyday Jewish Life in
Imperial Russia.
http://jgsgb.org/event/chaeran-freeze-everyday-life-imperial-russia/

Freeze's book makes accessible - the first time in
English - declassified archival documents >from the former Soviet
Union, rabbinic sources, as well as previously untranslated memoirs. They
provide a new perspective on the history of the Jews of Russia from
the beginning of the nineteenth century to World War I.

These sources focus on religion, family, health, sexuality, work, and
politics, providing an intimate portrait of the rich diversity of
Jewish life and their confrontation with modernity.

Freeze is an Associate Professor in the Department of Near Eastern and
Judaic Studies at Brandeis University. Her research focuses on the
history and culture of the Jews in Russia, Jewish family history, and
women's and gender studies. Her first book was Jewish Marriage and
Divorce in Imperial Russia, which examined the impact of modernization
on Jewish family practices and patterns in Imperial Russia. Copies of
Freeze's books will be available for sale.

For centuries Jews have been an active part of the history and culture of Lublin, shaping its identity. At the outbreak of World War II they constituted one third of the city's population.
In 2017, we celebrate the date which marks 700 years since the founding of the city of Lublin. This particular anniversary is an occasion to remember our common heritage and meet anew.
We invite all those whose families are connected with our region to the "Lubliner Reunion 2017", organised by the Grodzka Gate NN Theatre' Centre.

ViewMate translation request - Yiddish with Hebrew Lettering #ukraine

Dave Lewak <dave@...>
 

Hi!
My mother recently found some letters we believe were written in Yiddish by Tsipa Mishuris, my mother's maternal grandmother, to Rebecca and Barnet Lieberman, my mother's paternal grandparents. The story goes that Tsipa tried to put a stop to an impending romance between her son, an earnest medical student, and a poor young girl. Her intervention didn't work very well, as these were my grandparents.


I've posted letters in Yiddish with Hebrew lettering for which I need a translation.
