There was an ancient Jewish community in Kaifeng, which died out (= became
completely assimilated) at the beginning of the 19th century. There are
still a few Chinese families in Kaifeng which trace their ancestry to those
Jews. See the short article by a Chinese scholar on the subject:
http://www.iias.nl/kreeft/IIASNONLINE/Newsletters/Newsletter14/Regional/14c
eaa03.html

and a longer article by the late Prof. Daniel Elazar:
http://www.jcpa.org/dje/articles2/china.htm

Recently another Chinese scholar published two short books in English on
the Kaifeng community:
Legends of the Chinese Jews of Kaifeng
by Xin Xu, and The Jews of Kaifeng, China: History, Culture, and Religion
by Xin Xu

Good luck on your trip

There was a Jewish community in Kaifeng for several centuries. A Google
search for "Kaifeng Jewish community" will bring up 101 hits.

Larry Schenker's story about surname changes is interesting. My husband's
grandfather's name was Jacob Goldsmith. That was the only name we ever knew
until recently when we learned that his surname was Lubin. He was 16 years
old when he immigrated to America >from Poland. Unfortunately, his
daughter-in-law discarded his naturalization papers after her husband died
and now we have no way to trace his roots. If anyone has an idea how we can
trace him, please let me know.

I am trying to verify the correct names of the following communities. I
found them in the Ruzhany Yizkor book - in hebrew
Constantinova
Kolozovy
Koliny
Shipic
Liskova
They must be near Ruzhany because they are included in the Ruzhany Yizkor
book.

Most Organization--Stolin and Region #belarus

Stepak
 

Dear Friends,
I would like to bring to your attention an organization founded in 1999 in
Belarus with which personally I have no interest, but thought might interest
members of our SIG. The name of the organization is Most, meaning bridge.
They mean to provide a bridge for those Jews whose ancestors lived in their
region. They maintain a website in Russian and English at
www.stolinmost.narod.ru.
Most, led by Michail Chernyavsky, is a member of the Union of the Belarusian
Jewish Community, headed by Leonid Levin.
In addition to Stolin, the group have connections to the following former
towns of our ancestors:
David Horodok, Rubel, Horodnaya, Belousha, Berezhnoye, Glinka, Radchitsk,
Olpen.

The region served by the organization also includes Olmany, Olshany,
Belousha, Horsk, Osavaya, Maleshevo, Olgomel, Korotichi, Lutki, Greater
Orly, Small Orly, Lyadzec, Ozdamichi, Machul, Remel, Ruhcha, Terebezhov,
Nechatovo, and Plotnica.

Among its activities, the group organizes annual memorial services in
Stolin, on September 11. They also hold commemorations for the Jews of Rubel
and David Horodok. They are involved with maintaining the memorials at the
following death sites: Stasino (Stolin, where 12,500 Jews were executed),
Borok (Rubel), and Hinavsk (David Horodok, where 2700 were executed). They
organize shabbot and holiday observances. They are now working on a project
to fence off the former Jewish cemetery of Stolin. They have a Jewish folk
group named "Lehaim." And they try to educate the local children about the
former Jewish populations who lived in their towns.

Re: findings on the Belarus Site #belarus

Dear SIG Members [& esp. Jerry],

I have reviewed the Belarus database frequently but I
have never acknowledged anyone for it. In particular,
my grandmother and grandfather, as well as cousins of
unknown relationship, are all connected to the
Lahishiner Social Benevolent Society. My mystery is
what the relationship of the Society was to the family
as they hailed >from Lyubashevo and Lakhva, Belarus.

Other Databases that may lead me to more family
include: Pinsk Organizations including Congregation
Dorshei Tov Anshei Pinsk, Lachowicze Revision List of
1816, Lyakhovichi 1880 draft list May, 1880 Minsk
Gubernia Vedomosti, Lachowicze 1883 and 1884 Deputy
and Electors Tax Lists, Jewish Surnames >from the Minsk
Gubernia.

So, I would like to thank Jerry and others very much
for the efforts they have made in order for the rest
of us to gain access to data so easily.

Check 'em out!!
