Re: Jewish Encyclopedia Articles #belarus

The article about Gomel >from the Jewish Encyclopedia is ready to be posted to
the web site. First I need the email address to where it is to be sent.

But second, and more important, can this material be posted? It contains
references to 1970 events, and therefore, cannot be 75 years old. David Fox,
you started this whole process. Now please give us the word.

To those of you who have written me privately for copies of the article,
please have a bit more patience.

You probably misread it: Yehuda is more likely [than Yehura].

Hello Rauni Lustig,
I don't know how much I can help you or more accurately my mother (81
years old).
She is >from Nowy-Sacz and reminds Leon Lustig as the chief of the
"Zionist Youth
Movement" in Nowy-Sacz (N.S.). There were many "Lustig" in N.S. as she
says.
Leon immigrated to Israel before the WW2. His widow lives in Tel-Aviv.

Jewish and non-Jewish families sharing the same last name: LEWAK #belarus

Dave Lewak <dlewak@...>
 

Hi,

I've discovered an interesting little mystery concerning my surname,
LEWAK.

I've discovered a set of Lewak families who are not Jewish, instead
they are Roman Catholic, and come >from the Lvov area of Poland.
My own family is Jewish, and comes >from Drohiczyn, in what is now
southern Belarus. The distance between Drohiczyn and Lvov seems to
be about 150 miles.

I've contacted one of the Roman Catholic Lewaks, who still has family
in Poland; he says that Lewak is an uncommon name there.

How common is it for Jewish and non-Jewish families to share the same
last name?

I know that the name means "Left-handed" in one language (Yiddish or
Polish or Russian, not sure which); since it has a generic meaning
I'm tempted to write off the coincidence as coincindence.

Can anyone think of any reason why the Jewish and non-Jewish families
might have the same origin?

Thanks -- Dave Lewak

Belarus: LEWAK (LEVAK?), DWINSKI, GOLDBERG, KIER (>from Drogichin);
FLAKSMAN (>from Pinsk).
Ukraine: MISHURIMAN, POLISHER, FLICKSTEIN, TOBERMAN (>from Balta, and
maybe Odessa)
Galicia: WINZELBERG, WERTHEIM (>from Chekhoif?)
Lithuania: LIEBERMAN (>from Balbieriska)

Re: Copyright #belarus

David M. Fox <fox@...>
 

I spoke with the Library of Congress copyright office this morning to
get clarification about what we are trying to do with "The Jewish
Encyclopedia" first published in 1904 and republished through 1912. The
LOC said that "anything published prior to 1923 was in the public
domain".

Therefore, I see no problems with the project to get the Belarus related
articles retyped and put on the SIG website.

Mr. Beider's excellent books are based on research in existing archives.
They are wonderful works but I don't think we could ever assume 100%

Late 1800s Odessa vital records- info needed #general

Jerry Krassner
 

My ggp Harris & Bella (MENDELSOHN) KRASSNER (and young family) came to
NYC ~1890 >from Odessa (apparently via Hamburg, based on later
naturalization papers of their children). No ship record has been located
(despite significant efforts). Harris' parents were Louis and Rebecca
(COHEN) KRASSNER. Harris (Hebrew name: Tzvi ben Yehoda Leb) and Bella
(Hebrew name: Baila bat Yakov) were both born ~1864. They had several
children born before immigrating: Sarah (b. 1884); Joseph (b. 1886); Moses
(b. 1887); Frances (b. 1889). (All birth dates are approximate). Are there
likely to be birth certificates available? Assuming marriage in
~1882-1883, would a marriage certificate be available? Would there be any
exit papers >from Ukraine/Russia? Where would one look for these? I don't
think LDS has records for this location/time period (can anyone confirm
this?). Any insights would be appreciated. Thank you.
