Re: Kaplan family #general

If Jean has a brother who can have his Y-DNA tested, she would be
able to see if he matches my Kaplan line. My maternal grandmother's
father was a Kaplan >from Rezekne, Latvia. Their name was originally
Kapelushnik, changed to Kaplan i n the early 1900's. Please e-mail me
privately if Jean is interested in using DNA to trace her paternal
grandfather's line.

From Kishineff to Bialystok: A Table of Pogroms from 1903-1906 and the Duma Commission Report on the Bialystok Pogrom #warsaw #poland

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Hello all,

The Museum of Family History would like to announce the presence on its site
of an important report and a table of pogroms committed between 1903 and
1906.

First, you will be able to read the introduction and commentary to all of
this as published by the American Jewish Committee in their American Jewish
Year Book, Volume 8 (1906-1907).

Secondly, you will be able to peruse a table of more than two hundred and
fifty towns and cities in Europe where pogroms occurred. Within this table
is a listing of the damage caused in these locations (when available), as
well as some general remarks made about each pogrom. You will also find for
each pogrom event listed, the date of occurrence, the name of the town or
city, the gubernia, the overall population of the location and the Jewish
population, though numbers are not given for every town or city. There is
also a supplemental table of pogroms in other locations in November 1905 not
included in this larger table.

To make your town search easier, there is also included a table that lists
alphabetically all the locations with a reference made with each to the
entry number in the large table. There is also a table that lists the
gubernias in which pogroms occurred, and their overall and Jewish
populations.

Most interestingly, though thoroughly depressing, is the Report of the Duma
Commission of the Bialystok Massacre that occurred in June 1906. A goodly
report is presented to you here as it reviews in detail many incidents that
occurred during the pogrom, especially to the Jewish population. Those of
you who might have had families that lived in Bialystok may wish to read the
report thoroughly to see if any family names are mentioned. For those of you
who have an interest in a particular town, this report and its included
tables are for you.

Lastly, the debates that occurred in the Duma as the report was being
presented is interesting to read too. You can also read of the resolutions
proposed and passed within the U. S. Congress >from 1905-1906.

It should be mentioned that all this is being presented to you at the Museum
courtesy of the American Jewish Committee Archives.

All of the aforementioned information can be found at

Yizkor Book Project, November 2009 #warsaw #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Whilst 2009 is winding down, we certainly aren't and during this November we
saw a hubbub of activity in the JewishGen Project. We saw the addition of
some brand new projects and the first sparks of projects that are on their
way. As always, the figures speak out for themselves:

During this last month we have added these 4 new projects:

Bielsko Biala, Poland
Cluj-Napoca, Romania
Ratno, Ukraine* (the "kickoff" of a very new Translations Project)
Tasnad, Romania

Added 4 new entries:

Anyksciai, Lithuania (Pinkas Lita)
Hajdusamson, Hungary (Pinkas Hungary)
Hodmezovasarhely, Hungary (Pinkas Hungary)
Narayev, Ukraine (Berezhany Yizkor Book)

And finally, we have updated 19 existing projects:

Bedzin, Poland
Berezhany, Ukraine (revival of a long dormant project)
Brzeziny, Poland
Czestochowa, Poland (The Jews of Czestochowa)
Dabrowa Gornicza, Poland
Dembitz, Poland (Polish pages)
Dusetos, Lithuania
Goniadz, Poland
Kaluszyn, Poland
Katowice, Poland
Kutno, Poland
Lithuania (Lite)
Lubartow, Poland (addition of necrology)
Nowy Sacz, Poland (Sandzer Memorial Journal)
Ruzhany, Belarus
Ryki, Poland (Polish pages)
Svencionys, Lithuania
Tighina (Bendery), Moldova
Zelechow, Poland (Polish pages)

Please remember that all this month's additions and updates have been
flagged at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html to make it
easy to find them.

*Note that Ratno is included in the Yizkor Book Translation Projects at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

and your financial assistance to this or any of the other growing projects
there would be most welcome.

I look forward to even busier December and am always glad to receive
feedback and new initiatives for our Yizkor Book project.

All the very best,
Lance Ackerfeld
Yizkor Book Project Manager

Kissing cousins #general

AUBREY JACOBUS <aajacobus@...>
 

I was intrigued by Jeff Arkin's post - my parents too were first cousins
once removed, I always knew there was a vague relationship but it needed a
Polish researcher to clarify it.They even had different surnames ie Jacobs
and Jacobus but I found they were both Jakubowicz in fact.

More remarkable was the fact I discovered that my mothers parents were first
cousins and both were first cousins to my father. Instead of 16 great
great grandparents - I have only 10. There is no insanity in my family -
unless genealogy can be classified as an aberration.
