Jan Meisels Allen
 

Ancestor Hunt has many newspaper collections which I have posted about
previously, including Jewish Newspapers. They recently updated their
Jewish-American newspaper collection which may be found at:
http://www.theancestorhunt.com/blog/historic-jewish-american-newspapers-online#Wl0nI3lG2Uk
[MOD. NOTE: shortened URL - https://goo.gl/xHRfQ9 ]

Most are free but a few do require a paid subscription or a login >from a
university library. Some are indexed, and some are not. The newspapers that
are listed are all available online. There are many Jewish newspapers that
have not been digitized.

I would also recommend looking at their digitized collection of newspapers

Trying to find the GITTERMAN's from Leova. #bessarabia

David Dubin <ddubin@...>
 

My paternal grandfather's mother, my father's grandmother [my great grandmother]'s was named
Fannie DUBIN. Her maiden (nee) name was either GUITTERMAN or GITTERMAN.

The below source material is through http://www.MyHeritage.com and http://www.geni.com, which
is through http//www.ancestry.com which is through the: Cook County, Illinois, United States of
America Marriages Index 1871-1920; Northern District of Illinois Naturalization Index 1926-1979;
Illinois Federal Naturalization Index 1856-1991; United States of America Naturalization Records
Index 1791-1992 through the Indexed in World Archives Project; United States of America World
War I (The Great War) Draft Registration Cards 1917-1918; and several United States Censuses.

Fannie was born on March 8, 1889, and according to Form N-406 (Old 2204 L-B) U.S. DEPARTMENT
OF JUSTICE IMMIGRATION AND NATURALIZATION SERVICE (Edition of 1-13-41) 16-19460 No.
260570 220 UNITED STATES OF AMERICA PETITION FOR NATURALIZATION [Of a Married Person,
under Sec. 310(a) of the Nationality Act of 1940 (54 Stat. 1144-1145)]. Fannie came >from Leova,
Russia, which today is called Leova, Moldova. I don't know if she came >from the city or village of
Leova itself or the Leova, District. She left Rotterdam, Holland, Netherlands as Feige GITTERMAN
on the SS Nieuw Amsterdam and arrived in New York, New York, United States of America on
July 10, 1911, and eventually ended up in Chicago, where I live.

Fannie was married to Lukim (in Yiddish) Morris (Americanized English name) thus, my paternal
grandfather's father, my father's grandfather [my great grandfather] born on July 10, 1892, Leova,
Russia, which is today Leova, Moldova. They were married on October 21, 1911, in Chicago, Cook
County, Illinois, United States of America.

According to another document, her name was Fegia could have been born on March 8, 1887. Her
parents, thus my paternal grandfather's grandmother, my father's great-grandmother
[my great-great- grandmother]'s was named Rachel GITTERMAN and her husband is my paternal
grandfather's grandfather, my father's great-grandfather [my great-great-grandfather]'s was named
Chyail GITTERMAN. Fannie had a sister named Tina maiden (nee) GITTERMAN married to Sam
GROOBMAN (Senior or the First [I]) and an unknown brother GITTERMAN. After Lukim (in Yiddish)
Morris (Americanized English name) passed away, Fannie married Abe ZEIDENBERG, thus becoming
Fannie Zeidenberg or Fannie DUBIN ZEIDENBERG.

I am trying to find out how Fannie went >from Leova to Rotterdam as well as and if I could go back even
further. It seems the records stop with Rachel and Chyail.

Thank you all in advance for your help,

David DUBIN >from Chicago, Illinois

Yizkor Book Project, December 2017 #germany

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

It would seem that in the last month of 2017, the Yizkor Book Project
continued on it's very positive trend and we are definitely looking
forward to continuing, ever onwards, in 2018. I would like to take
this opportunity to thank the many, many and many volunteers who
tirelessly support the YB project in numerous ways, to the professional
translations who help reveal the hidden treasures in the Yizkor books
and, finally, to the generous donors, without whom, we couldn't go
forward with our projects.

So what did we do in December? To begin with, last month saw us seeing
the final translated pages of an additional three books go online. They
were:

- Chisinau, Moldova (The Jews of Kishinev) The book was entirely and
voluntarily translated by Sheli Fain, to whom we owe a great deal of
thanks. Yefim Kogan was there together with Sheli to help out with the
logistics and scanning and we do appreciate his drive and assistance in
seeing this project to completion.
- Narach (Kobylnik), Belarus (Memorial Book of Kobylnik) This
translation project was energetically coordinated by Anita Gabbay who
managed to arrange its translation in a relatively short period of time
and our indebted thanks do go out to her.
- Stryy, Ukraine (Book of Stryj) The completion of this book, begun many
years ago by Mike Kalt, could not have come about without the great
number of translations by Susan Rosin, supported by translations by
other volunteers, including Yocheved Klausner and Daniella Heller. To
all of these good people, we send out a humble thanks.

Last month, we added in the necrology for Dubrovitsa, Ukraine which
includes a disturbing 2,626 victims >from this community. The necrologies,
apart >from immortalizing the names of the martyrs, also provide us with
significant information about the people, such as details of their
parents, spouses and children. I believe that over the years, we have
placed online the bulk of the necrologies >from the Yizkor books, but our
intention is to continue with this endeavor, till we have completed them
all.

Other important genealogical information we have added in recently, comes
in the form of lists of survivors often noted in the Yizkor books.
Examples of these lists, were the additions last month of a list of 277
survivors >from Krasnik and lists of survivors >from Wolbrom who lived in
Israel at the time of the Yizkor book's publishing. Once again, we will
continue to extract these lists as an important genealogical resource
supplied by the Yizkor books.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in December.
