Petition for Naturalization for Louis Greenberg #ukraine

Karen Zale
 

I mailed off for a Petition of Naturalization for a
Louis Greenberg, however, it is not my grandfather.
The information is hard to read but it looks like his
wife's name is Leah and they had four children,
Fannie, Sadie, Michael and Freda. If this is your
family, I will be happy to mail you the report.

Passing of our Beloved Translator and Friend #ukraine

Carol Raspler
 

Dear Cousins All:

I deeply regret having to advise you of the passing of HELEN SENDYK, the
translator of the
SAMBOR YIZKOR BOOK. Helen was a dear, dear friend and mentor, and woman of
extraordinary
passion and valor. She survived the Shoah and authored two books on the
subject, "The End of
Days" and "New Dawn," both of which were published by Syracuse University
Press.

We met serving as interviewers for Stephen Speilberg's Visual History
Foundation and became
fast friends. Fluent in Polish, Hebrew, Yiddish and English, she agreed to
translate our book
(a small portion of the work is presently at the Yizkor Book Project site on
JewishGen.org).

Might I respectfully suggest that those who are interested in making a
donation in her Memory, do so
to the Yizkor Book Project of JewishGen.org. Please do not hesitate to
contact me in connection
with this sad message.

Goodman, Susan
 

I had an extraordinary experience in Zaporozhye last summer and have just learned
how to post a message to your organization. I welcome the opportunity to
communicate some of my experiences in the event that they might be of assistance to
others.
My e-mail information is sgoodman@...
My husband and I visited Dnepropetrovsk and Zaporozhye in July, 2004 was searching
for information about my father's family. HIAS had informed me about the family's
arrival in Ellis Island in l9l3, which helped fix the parameters of their dates in Aleksandrovsk (now =
Zaporozhye).
I was fortunate to find impressive family records in the city's central archive,
including synagogue books recording the dates of birth, brit and naming of each of
my fathers 7 siblings. In addition the archive located school registration for my
father, military call-up for his eldest brother , location of the Tumarkin house,
as well as their coal business, status in the community, etc. This, despite
people telling us that records before 1943 had been destroyed. Completely new to
me was the fact that my grandparents were not originally >from Aleksandrovsk but
came >from Mohilev to Aleksandrovsk in about 1891.
All of this worked because we got in touch with the local archivist in Zaporozhye
through the intervention of someone in the Dnepropetrovsk Jewish community. This
gave my request legitimacy, and when I arrived in Zaporozhye, the archivist had a
few weeks researching the documents that were waiting for us when we reached the
Archive. The synagogue archives that have been saved are now housed in the State
Archives of the Zaporozhye Region. The material here spans the years 1774 to 1993.
This means that the religious and civil records can be researched at the same
location.
What also helped and might have been unique is that I had 8 documents >from my
grandfather's coal business . I scanned and sent these by e-mail to our contact
in Dnepropetrovsk. He personally took them to Zaporozhye before our arrival and
was in regular contact with the archive staff to check on progress. The documents
I sent them included letters on the family's business letterhead to officials in
St. Petersburg and elsewhere, with the address of my grandfather's business, and
calling cards with identifying information, etc. I realize that each search is
unique, and will depend upon the availability of information before archivists in
Ukrainian cities can even begin their search. Please note that the archives
themselves are not computerized, because of lack of funds. Any search must be done
by hand, a painstakingly slow process.
The Director of the State Archive in Zaporozhye is Aleksander Sergeevich Tedeev.
He does not speak English but was extremely helpful and sympathetic to my search.
The archive address is 48 Ukrainska Street, 69095, Zaporozhye.
e-mail: DAZO@....
The Chabad Rabbi in Zaporozhye is Rabbi Nahum Erentroi. He has created an
impressive network within the Jewish community and with the assistance of JDC,
there is a Jewish school system beginning with the youngest children. He is most
gracious to visitors and we had an enlightening Friday evening Shabbat dinner at
his home. The Chabad Rabbi Schmuel Kamenetsky of the newly-restored central
synagogue in Dnepropetrovsk also welcomed us for lunch on Shabbat, where we learned
about their multi-faceted Jewish community program funded locally and by JDC.
I hope this is of some interest and, if I can be of assistance to anyone else ,
will be happy to provide whatever information I have.

Re: Looking for the names FALIK and FALIKMAN #austria-czech

Czernowitz, Yompol, Kizhnikki, Lyubar and vicinity as well as FALIKMAN >from
Kishinev. She writes: "there are precious few to be found. I would love to hear

Czernowitz-List member that she has the name Falik Falik (both given and surname)
in her family tree, and that perhaps they had dropped the "man" suffix at some
time."

The first point I wish to make is that the towns mentioned above fall outside
the realms of our SIG. The geographic boundaries of Austria-Czech SIG are fairly
strictly defined as present day Austria and the ex-Hapsburg Crownlands of Bohemia
& Moravia - ie the present day Czech Republic.

But of course, the "Out-Of-Our-SIG" Jews of yesteryear did not obey these
restrictions on their travels and may perhaps be found living in our SIG after
all! So I looked for FALIKMAN[N]& FALIK on the Jewish cemetery website of Austria
and "lo and behold" we can indeed find them within our permitted boundaries
buried in the Zentralfriedhof [ZF], Vienna.

Falikmann Netty age 62 died 15.07.1918 buried 17.07.1918 ZF Gate IV Group 4

There are also 13 FALIK burials in 11 graves. One is a WW1 grave [see my posting

Falik Mendl age 25 died 04.08.1916 buried 06.08.1916 ZF Gate I. Group 76B 4.
Runde 10A

The first names of FALIKMANN & FALIK suggest that most, if not all, of them are
of Galician origin.

It is worth noting that there are FALK & FALKMANN to be found living in Bohemia
in 1793 - I cannot vouch for Moravia as I have not seen an early census of this
area.

JGS Tampa Bay Seminar #general

Meeting Notice for Sunday, February 13, 2005

Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay
Seminar On Naturalization Research

What: Seminar: Naturalization Research using the Internet and JGSTB Library
Where: Gulf Coast Jewish Family Services, 14041 Icot Blvd., Clearwater, Florida
When: Two parts:Part 1: Sunday, February 13, 2005 at 2:00 P.M.(1:30 Registration)
Part 2: Sunday, March 13, 2005 at 2:00 P.M. (1:30 Registration)
Cost: Members free; non-members $25. Membership dues waived if you become a
member when you register for the seminar. $10 charged per course booklet.

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay (JGSTB) will sponsor a two-part
seminar on Naturalization Research. Emphasis will be given to research resources
on the Internet and in library materials available in the JGSTB library.
This seminar is aimed at an intermediate level, although beginners are welcome and
will benefit >from the information presented. An extensive Q & A is planned. The
presentation will be illustrated by approximately 200 slides (included in the
course booklet).

The naturalization records of your ancestors can help in establishing their roots
in the old country. Unfortunately the tangled web of naturalization laws, the
multitude of judicial jurisdictions, and the scattered location of germane
records make the search for these documents difficult and frustrating. This
two-part course is designed to reduce the mystery and confusion and to improve the
chances of a successful search. A brief history of the laws and of governmental
entities involved in naturalization processes will be presented, and a logical
progression for finding actual records of interest will be demonstrated; Special
emphasis will be given to the use of Internet resources.

We are pleased that Emil H Isaacson, a charter member of the JGSTB, and an
experienced genealogist is our annual seminar leader will once again conduct one
of his thoroughly researched and comprehensive educational courses for members and
for interested non-members. Dr. Isaacson has over 22 years of experience in
genealogy and has researched his ancestral roots back seven generations to the
late 1700's in Europe. He will share his successful and sometimes unsuccessful
techniques that allowed him to connect with his ancestors in the old country.

To register, or for more information, call Sally or Bill Israel at 727-343-1652 or
Mark Baron at 727-842-5789. Advance registration by telephone or by e-mail to
<mark_baron@...> will ensure that sufficient books are printed and available
at the seminar. Paid members and those pre-registered will have first priority on
books.

Members of other Florida Jewish Genealogical Societies are welcome and will be
charged a course fee of $10 (unless they decide to become a member of JGSTB), plus
an additional $10 if a course booklet is purchased.

If you have not already renewed your membership in the JGS of Tampa Bay for 2005,
you can pay the $25 annual dues at the meeting or by mail in advance.
The membership year begins on January 1st, so all 2004 memberships have expired.

seminar on Naturalization Research. Emphasis will be given to research resources
on the Internet and in library materials available in the JGSTB library.
This seminar is aimed at an intermediate level, although beginners are welcome and
will benefit >from the information presented. An extensive Q & A is planned. The
presentation will be illustrated by approximately 200 slides (included in the
course booklet).

The naturalization records of your ancestors can help in establishing their roots
in the old country. Unfortunately the tangled web of naturalization laws, the
multitude of judicial jurisdictions, and the scattered location of germane
records make the search for these documents difficult and frustrating. This
two-part course is designed to reduce the mystery and confusion and to improve the
chances of a successful search. A brief history of the laws and of governmental
entities involved in naturalization processes will be presented, and a logical
progression for finding actual records of interest will be demonstrated; Special
emphasis will be given to the use of Internet resources.

We are pleased that Emil H Isaacson, a charter member of the JGSTB, and an
experienced genealogist is our annual seminar leader will once again conduct one
of his thoroughly researched and comprehensive educational courses for members and
for interested non-members. Dr. Isaacson has over 22 years of experience in
genealogy and has researched his ancestral roots back seven generations to the
late 1700's in Europe. He will share his successful and sometimes unsuccessful
techniques that allowed him to connect with his ancestors in the old country.

To register, or for more information, call Sally or Bill Israel at 727-343-1652 or

books.

charged a course fee of $10 (unless they decide to become a member of JGSTB), plus
an additional $10 if a course booklet is purchased.
