Seeking GOLDBERG #belarus

FREYAB@...
 

Hello Fellow Genners,

I am seeking information on Hirsch GOLDBERG who lived in Chicago in the
1890's. He belonged to Congregation Ansche Suvalk, so I 'assume' he
originated >from that area before he came to the U.S..
If any of this rings a bell, please contact me at FREYAB@aol.com.

Re: Mutilation to avoid Conscription #belarus

Baruch Pinnick <bpinnick@...>
 

I wouldn't readily dismiss stories about parents mutilating their
children to avoid conscription in the Czar's army. I've served in
the Israeli army and heard of RARE cases in which young conscripts,
usually disturbed, shot themselves in the foot (or similar) to get
out. (I've never heard of Israeli parents mutilating their children,
however!)

The phenomenon probably exists wherever military service is compulsory.
Considering the horror stories I've read about the Czar's army -
conscription for up to 20 or 30 years, antisemitism, you name it - and
comparing it to the rather benign Israeli army, I could well imagine
parents performing this admittedly rather disturbing act for the better
of their children.

Marriage or naturalization records #belarus

Marshall Paisner <paisner@...>
 

In 1905 My Grandfather arrived with 2 brothers and his 3 year old
daughter. At Ellis Island their name became "Paisner".
In interviewing family members I got varied clues of where they
were from. These include "Kiyev, Ukraine or Minsk, Belarus,
krazenstart, Moliva Gabernia.

One brother remained in Belarus. His name was Nacham. We think the
original name was Pevsner. but I am not yet convinced this is true.

Where does one find marriage or, naturalization records for the
early 1900's?

I hope they may have a clue as to the original city in Belarus.
Any comments would be appreciated.

Re: Social Security Application Question #general

Rechtman <rechtman@...>
 


I am sure this question has been asked in the past so
forgive me for asking again. I just received the Social
Security Application for a family member and it is a small,
simple application with no great information on it.
Dear Deb and All,

It is correct that the SS-5 form does not include much. However,
it does give you some indication as to:
A. Address - which can help you find the person on a census record,
if this is applicable.

B. Possible time of arrival, at least in years' ranges so you can
look up port-entry ledgers (they are VERY helpful if you can locate
your ancestor in one of them.)

C. Age, names of parents etc, which can help you with other research paths.

For a detailed FAQ on Social Security and Genealogy, refer to
www.rechtman.com (no commercials on _that_ web site! :-))

Good luck!

Location: Dembova Buda in Suwalk #belarus

spirit-images <spirit-images@...>
 

On my grandfathers naturalization papers it says that he was born in
Dembova Buda in the county of Suwalk, country of Russia.
He arrived in the US 1900.

Has anyone ever heard of this place? I am guessing that it no longer
exists or is called something else now.

Memoirs of growing up in Radzilow, Poland #general

Jose Gutstein <JMG-Miami@...>
 

I have added 4 new chapters (9,10,11,12) to the Morris Atlas Memoirs.
It's a marvelous depiction of growing up in Radzilow, Poland, of life in a
small shtetl around 1910 >from the point of view of a young boy who wants to
explore the secular world, contrary to the wishes of his father, his family
and almost all of Radzilow's Jewish community.

http://www.radzilow.com/atlasmemoirs1.htm

It was written by Morris Atlas (born Moshe Atlasowicz) as an adult, from
the memories of his childhood days in Radzilow. It's quite clear the
12-year-old Moshe was a precocious child. The detail with which he
describes every event is remarkable. His world in Radzilow, however, was
not typical of all Radzilow Jews. His family was wealthier and more
educated than most, part of the upper-class of Radzilow Jewry. In fact,
at one point he mentions how his own family didn't even associate much
with other, less socially-accepted Jews. The persons who are mentioned
in the memoirs are invariably part of the Radzilow business class and
the learned members of society. The world of the Atlasowicz family
centered around religious study, as it did for all their family and
friends. Everything that happened to young Moshe was a direct result of
the inner conflict between his desire to learn and explore new things
and his father's desire to have him learn strictly through religious
training. He was the first Jewish boy to attend secular school in
Radzilow.

Radzilow is located in northeast Poland, Lomza gubernia, very close to the
following well-known shtetls in the area: Jedwabne, Stawiski, Szczuczyn,
Wasosz and Wizna.
