GELFAND - Ihumen & Vitebsk #belarus

malkajef@...
 

I am researching the GELFAND family of Belarus, especially Jankel (Jacob)
GELFAND, born in Ihumen (Igumen, now known as Cherven) 60 kms SE of Minsk.
He also lived in Vitebsk before coming to the US in 1900.

Anyone out there >from Belarus have members of the GELFAND family in their
family trees?

Moderator's Note: Jeff, I believe that GELFAND has appeared on several of the Minsk name lists that Vitaly Charny has posted previously on JewishGen and recently on this discussion group.

name: Chlavna #lithuania

BREST FAMILY <angi@...>
 

Dear Litvaksiggers,

In my Lapidus/Lapedus research I have often found LAPIDUS' with the first
name of Chlavna, Chlavina and Chlawne. This is in my own particular
Branch of Lapedus ' as well as the many other Lapidus families I am
researching. I am wondering if anyone has ever heard of this name before
, and if so, where it originates from.

Chelsea, Mass. residents from Kovno #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

Recently, mention was made on the Digest about the surprising fact of the
large number of Jews living in Chelsea, MA in 1920, who arrived there from
Kovno. In all probablility, they came >from Kovno Gubernia and not just from
the city of Kovno itself.

I do not want to "rain on anyone's parade" <g>, but in the 1920's, thirty (30)
Jewish families >from the shtetl of Pusalotas, Lithuania were living in
Jacksonville, Florida. I am biased, of course, (my father came >from Pusalotas)
but can anyone top that?

RECORDS FOR MEMEL #lithuania

MEMEL ARCHIVE RECORDS - WHERE ARE THEY?

Eric Goldstein wrote:

<<<In reply to Brent Harris, who asks what guberniya and uezd Klaipeda (Memel)
was in, the answer is: none. Memel, until 1924, was part of Germany, not
Russia or Lithuania. Not until the League of Nations transferred it to
Independent Lithuania in 1924 did it become officially know as Klaipeda.

Perhaps someone else knows, however, if there are any records for Memel
available in the German archives. Like many families in the area of Darbenai,
Kretinga, Palanga, etc., who were engaged in trading across the German border,
I think my family may have ties in Memel. I'd be interested in finding out
where those records are.

Any ideas?>>>

I will quote >from information about the whereabouts of the Memel Archive
records as posted to Deja News by Martha Lev-Zion on 3/17/97. The facts, as
presented, were based on a letter Martha Lev-Zion received >from a researcher
(archivist) at Klaipeda University.

Howard Margol

<homargol@aol.com>

Key points in the letter are as follows:

At the end of World War Two the Germans attempted to take the Klaipeda (Memel)
archive with them as they retreated westwards, some parts were left behind.
The documents disappeared somewhere in East Prussia. However, Polish scholars
have recently confessed that part of the Klaipeda archive is stored,
uncatalogued in the vicinity of Olsztyn. We are trying to find the means to
copy this resource and house it in Klaipeda. Another part of the evacuated
archive disappeared near Pillau (now under Russian control). A third section
is preserved in the Lithuanian Central State Archives (Lietuvos Centrinins
Valstybinis Archyvas - Oskaro Milasiaus g. 21, LT 2051 Vilnius). Lithuanian
scholars have neglected this (largely >from ignorance of German) and it too is
very poorly catalogued.

We are working on the Jewish community of western Lithuania (Zemaitija, across
the border >from East Prussia) as a separate research project, but this is in
its infancy. The Centre for West Lithuanian and Prussian History was
established three years ago to carry out research into Lithuania's relations
with her Baltic, German and Slavonic neighbours. We also specialize in the
history of western Lithuania and are just beginning to build up a strong local
archive (mainly of copies) with the cooperation of various national and
foreign archives. Unfortunately, we severely overestimated the capacity of our
archival base, which is not such as would throw much light on individual
family history now, although we do hope to remedy this eventually.

Klaipeda records in the LCVA in Vilnius.

The following information is listed for the records; Fond number - Name of the
record - Timespan covered - Quantity of records in the Fond.

Jewishgen changed servers about 2 weeks ago. When that happened, all of
the SIG subscriptions were automatically set at the digest mode. If you
want the individual mailings back, instead of the digest, just follow
the instructions posted on this SIG last week, and again today. Then
your mailbox will be full again.

I think that the number of posts are down generally here. Probably due
to vacations, exhaustion >from the seminar, Lou being in Slovakia etc.
