JRI Poland #Poland Town of "Molitz," near Brest-Litovsk? #poland

Adam Goodheart
 

Dear genealogists,

On the 1907 naturalization papers of my great-grandfather Moishe
(Morris) Kaufman (1870-1942), he lists his town of birth as "Molitz,
Russia," which I've been unable to positively identify.

from many other documents and family stories, I know that Moishe and
his wife, Golde Epelbaum Kaufman (1872-1952), both grew up and were
married in Brest-Litovsk, Grodno Gubernia (modern Brest, Belarus) were
living there at the time of Moishe's emigration in 1897/8, and
considered themselves "Polish" Jews. I know that in the 19th century
many Jews were moving >from small shtetls to larger cities like Brest
-- for instance, Golde's family originally came to Brest >from the
smaller town of Wlodawa, Poland, Siedlce Gubernia (70 km south of
Brest). It's likely that "Molitz" is the town that my Kaufman
ancestors originally came >from -- so of course I'd like to know where
it was.

There are at least a few candidates, per the JewishGen Communities
database and the book "Where Once We Walked." One is Malec, Belarus
(in Yiddish, Malech, Moletch, Moltsh) in the former Pruzhany District
of Grodno Gubernia, about 90 km NE of Brest-Litovsk, where I know
there was a large clan of Kaufmans. Another possibility is Mielec,
Poland (Melits, Melitz, Myelets), but it was about 300 km SW of
Brest-Litovsk, in a different gubernia. There's also Milejczyce,
Poland (Milaytchitz), which was within the actual Brest District of
Grodno Gubernia, 80 km north of Brest-Litovsk. There are probably
other possible towns that I've missed.

Does anyone have suggestions?

Rabbinic Genealogy SIG #Rabbinic 18th century ancestors in Schwaben Henoch, Yehuda Loeb, etc. #rabbinic

Jim Bennett
 

My Bissinger ancestors in Ichenhausen, Schwaben region of Bavaria are
descendants-I believe but cannot prove-of a rabbinical family whose names
are Henoch, R.Henoch Zundel Pfersee of Oettingen,
R. Yehuda Loeb ben Henoch Darshan, Baruch ben Loeb of Hochstadt and
Harburg, etc

This research is very difficult due to a lack of family names, paucity of
records and the fact that it covers the 17th and 18th centuries

Anyone who recognizes these names and is familiar with this region and time
frame is requested to help me

Re: Family Finder question #dna

Arnold Chamove <ArnoldChamove@...>
 

But, even two brothers do not have identical DNA for the FamilyFinder
to utilize, as each gets a random half the DNA of their father and a
random half >from their mother. That is why I did my sister's FF DNA too.
And, although the results (matches) are similar, they are not identical.
Presumably, in an extreme case, the DNA my brother and I (male) got >from
my father could have no overlap at all. And ditto for DNA >from our mother.
In such a case you can see how FF results would differ substantially.

Dear fellow genners,

Recently I had the prenuptial agreement between my great great
grandparents translated. There it was stated that the bride's dowry
was worth in total 3000 rubles.

What could you get for 3000 rubles in Warsaw, Poland, in the late 19th
century (1876 to be exact)? What would the sum correspond to today? I
have encountered several suggestions but I haven't found any reliable
source.

I don't think anyone has mentioned this before: A friend has alerted me to a
new and very nice online exhibition called Jewish Professional Theater,
which canvasses the history and prominent personalities of Jewish theater in
Eastern Europe - specifically Moscow, Bucharest, Odessa and Minsk - as well
as New York. I looked at it and it has brief but interesting information
about the Jewish theater in each place, along with some great photos.

The exhibition is >from Moscow's Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center, and was
launched online by the Google Cultural Institute (which partners with
museums and other institutions to put world cultural treasures online). I
have no connections with either of those bodies.
