I think that the name LAPIDUS refers to the profession of Jeweler (i.e.,
lapidary).

Hi:

I am delighted at the starting of the Ukrainian Sig; My research is for many
towns in the Ukraine today: For Kovel: TANNENHOLZ, GOLDBERG, BALF, FINE;
Orinin: GREENBERG, LEIBOVITZ. The Greenberg males were all Hebrew Teachers
at least this is what I was told by my father in law. Trisk: LEITMAN,
SHERIFF. Mikulintsy, Ternopol, Terebovlya, SEIFSTEIN. Mikulintsy, Ternopol:
DACHER, KOGUT, PILPEL. I guess that's enough for now.

Great to have you available #ukraine

JReing2528@...
 

I am envious of those of you who have what amounts to significant information about forebears. I am seeking, so far with no luck whatsoever, information about my mgrm, Yetta Maripolsky, born Kiev Gubernia, 12/15/84, maiden name Meireshiviski (Spelling?) married to Louis Maripolsky, arrived in New York about 1909 with son, Meyer and then had three daughters. I keep hitting a stone wall with either of these names. Even the S.S. death certificate has grandmother's name spelled incorrectly! My grandmother's mother's name was Suckloff or Sokoloff >from a previous marriage. Some members of family settled in chicago/philadelphia and changed the name to Maris. Any information would be deeply appreciated.

the port of embarkation by the shipping lines and were held at
the Port of Hamburg. While those lists are *not* part of our

well worth looking at since they contain additional information,
not found on the federally held manifests.

The Hamburg lists exist >from 1850-1934, are organized by year,
then by month. If you know the date of arrival into a U.S.port,
subtract about 10-14 days and use that information to locate the
manifest in the Hamburg Lists. If you do not know the name of
the ship or date of arrival...you'll need to use the other
finding aids, the Direct Lists (Hamburg to Port of New York for
example) or the Indirect lists (Hamburg to some intermediate
stop before arrival into the U.S.)

Re: Myra Davis #belarus

Francine Schwartz <pinsk2@...>
 

I think that genealogy researh must be pursued with
tact and intelligence, rather than fervent zeal.
Certainly any information that is disseminated in
terms of family members, close or distant, should not
be disseminated arbitrarily. As for family tree, we
structure them for our own purposes and the desire to
know our ancestors, whether other members of family
feel the same, is a subject that should be discussed
with every person you add to the tree. And certainly,
to forward personal information to distant relatives
is my personal no-no.
Within my family we call each other and ask permission
to give out information to others. It is the sensible
thing to do and I expect any one of us would loathe to
have our personal information floating about to
relatives we have limited contact with and never met.

Re: Chomsk- what Gubernia? #belarus

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

Chomsk is in Grodno Gubernia, I believe.
A little SE of Kartuz Bereza.

The BARG (Bereza Area Research Group
includes Chomsk in its research area.
Their website is

http://people.netscape.com/morse/barg

Although we don't have much on Chomsk
itself we do have much info on Bereza and
their are many Chomsky surnames listed.

Hope this helps.

Re: Looking for Brest-Litovsk Records #belarus

Susan M. Rogers <smroger{@...>
 

It would be very helpful to many interested in Brest-Litovsk if you would be
so kind as to reveal how you happened to come across a book on
Brest-Litovsk, which my great grandfather left in 1886.

Also, what is the name of the book and in what language is it? When was it
published? Does it have photos?

Finally, it is customary to list with your surnames researching the places
and guberniyas of origin to be of use to fellow researchers who might
provide input to your own search.
