unusual names Girm and Girsh #belarus

Herbert Lazerow
 

If you saw both Girm and Girsh with the same surname, this is the given name Girsh, one of the most common given names. It is very easy to mistake the Russian script m, sh, and t if they are written carelessly.

German documents on Viewmate VM10118-20 #austria-czech

Philip Moravcik <morav@...>
 

Hi,

I was quite excited to recently find the marriage ledger entry for a
previously unknown ancestor in the Beroun area near Prague. I have not
been able to completely translate the documents and turn to you for help.

Please have a look at the following documents on viewmate
(http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/index.asp)

VM10118, VM10119, AND VM10120.

These are the descriptions/info about the bride and groom and
#10120 are some additional notes about the marriage on the following page.

Any help you could render me would be most appreciated.

Many thanks to those of you who responded to my earlier request for help
with translations.

SOCHACZEWSKI family, in Paris #france

Avraham <435.gavea@...>
 

Hello genners,
Months ago I found some entries added by Jeanine SOCHACZEWSKI
on Yad Vashem's database, and I got intrigued since some of the names
coincide with the information I have for my SOCHACZEWSKI branch.
Unfortunately, I tried to locate her on the address provided by the
time she submitted the testimonials - 1986, if I'm not wrong - but it
looks like she does not live in 20 rue Sorbier, 75020 Paris anymore. I
tried also the white pages but it seems nobody ever picks up the phone
(I had a friend who speaks french trying to call for me). Did any you
ever heard of any SOCHACZEWSKI family in France, being able to
put me in contact with him/her for further investigation ?

business as they saw fit. He instituted a democratic election and
several Jews were elected to serve in the town council. On the 14th of
July, 1920, the town once again was invaded by the Red Army. A day
later, Lithuanians entered the town. At the end of that August, the
Russians gave control of the town to Lithuanians, who promised the

Re: Jewish WW2 Red Army Genaral (CHERNYAKHOVSKI) #general

Paul Silverstone
 

At the last conference there was a Russian Army veteran present with an exhibit of
Soviet army casualties. I asked him about General CHENRYAKHOVSKY who I understood
to have been the highest ranking Jewish officer killed in the war.
He did not think the general was Jewish. I don't remember his reasoning, but it
was based on his innate knowledge of the Soviet military.
He was a colonel-general, equal to our 4-star rank and may have been the
highest ranking Soviet officer killed in action. He was killed in East Prussia
in early 1945.

I have placed a copy of my parents Ketuba on viewmate at the address below.

I am trying to get the Hebrew spelling of my parents names >from this
document. Their English names were Harry M. Levin and Sophie
Davis. I would also like to get the Hebrew names of their parents if
those are on the Ketuba.

I do have several large sizes of the document if someone believes
that they could provide a better answer with larger image.

Thank you.
