Postcard - Lekuchiene, Rokiskis #southafrica

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

Whilst researching my article on postcards, I found one >from a Roche
Lekuchiene (LEKUCH), Yurscliko gatve #6, Rokiskis, Lithuania, to an H.
Mayer, Box 23, Chandler, Oklahoma, dated September 28, 1928.

This can be view at:

Hope that a descendant of these families will be able to identify who they
were.

Note: I am not related to either family.

Abramis Family Information & Gorodok website #belarus

You should look at http://www.glazbede.com/1941.htm where I have listed
the names of many people >from Gorodok who were shot at two sites in
1941. The name Abramis appears at both sites.
Their names were David, Anna Davidovna , Maria and an unknown Abramis.

I recently came across a list of Jewish residents of Gorodok who
signed the protocols on closing the local synagogues in 1938. Two of
the residents were Masha Movshevna Abramis and Hana Dovydovna Abramis.
My maternal great-grandmother's maiden name was Muska Abramis. As far
as I know,my maternal grandmother was >from the Vitebsk/Minsk
region,which is not far >from Gorodok. I have two questions.
1)What does signing the protocols mean? Did these people support
closing the synagogues?
2)Does anybody know if Muska was related to Masha and/or Hana?
Any information that can be provided,whether it helps in my
genealogical research or not,is greatly appreciated.

Postcard - Yudel Feldman, Skapiskis, Lithuania #southafrica

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

During my research for my article on historical Jewish postcards which
appears on the JewishGen Blog, http://www.jewishgen.blogspot.com, I found
one sent by Yudel Feldman of Skapiskis, Lithuania, to Meisch Kram in Berlin,
Germany. The postcard was listed as being >from Kupiskis, but it was
incorrectly identified. The date was quite dim and all I could see was July
12, 19?3.

The postcard can be viewed, both front and back, on the Bagnowka site:

http://www.bagnowka.com/index.php?m=atoz&g=1&img=10116

The Feldman family was a large one, so hopefully, one of the descendant(s)
of Yudel Feldman will see this posting and retrieve this piece of their
ancestor's life.

The Belarus SIG at the Conference #belarus

Sfingold
 

As you may have read in the most recent update >from the conference team, the
Belarus SIG lunch has a guest speaker arranged by the conference committee
Here's the lunch description >from the program organizers "In 1793,the central
part of Belarus, including Minsk, became a part of the Russian empire.
In addition to being the capital of Belarus it was also a center of Jewish
life and home of many Torah sages and Yeshivas that attracted students from
all over Europe. Before World War II, Jews made up 40% of the total
population in the city. Join Moscow born, Jewish filmmaker, researcher and
travel professional, Michael Masterovoy, as he takes you on a tour of a
present-day Belarus, which resonates with the past. View a short video of
several Belarusian shtetls, walk the streets of Movsha Shagal's (Marc Chagall's)
Vitebsk with Michael (and view the museum) and learn about the positive aspects
of travel to a socialist state with a human face, the land of vodka and honey
that echoes with the footsteps of our ancestors."
The lunch is on Tuesday, July 13.On the same day, we will hold the Belarus
SIG meeting in the afternoon. I will be attending the lunch and co-chairing
the business meeting. David Feldman, co-coordinator, and Ruth Silver,
research coordinator, are helping to put together the slides that show
all the projects in progress and our achievements for the year.The conference
committee has organized a "market fair" experience on Sunday, July 11.
JewishGen SIGs can have a booth. I am unable to attend on Sunday
If anyone >from the SIG would like to organize materials about the
SIG and Belarus and set up a booth, let me know and I will put you in touch
with the conference contact. Here's more info about the market faire:
Sunday, July 11, 2010 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM Come one, come all to our very
special Market Square with a Jewish genealogical and family history theme
Experts and mavens will be there staffing every "pushcart" to provide
assistance and guidance. Represented will be (almost) every region where
Jews once dwelled, plus examples of old maps, vital and landowner records,
antique photographs and postcards, translation assistance, shtetl crafts,
Jewish cooking...and more. Come to browse, to ask for assistance in getting
started on your research, identifying your shtetl, solving family mysteries
or simply to sample all the wares. Food and kosher selections available
for purchase. A klezmer concert by Yale Strom and Hot Pstromi follows
later in the afternoon and again in the early evening I look forward
to meeting members at the conference.

Searching: Schabsel GORDON from Mogilew #belarus

hbgrowe@...
 

Hello,
I am new to JewishGen and am trying to find out some history about
myself.
My parents were both survivors but I know little to nothing about my
father because they were only married for 23 months and all I have are some
documents. My mother didn't have much time to learn about him and
all she told me is that he was an only child, which is hard to believe since
they were in Europe.

What information I do have is:
His Naturalization Certificate dated 9/3/52 in Detroit, MI
Their marriage license and his death certificate
His name was Schabsel GORDON and when he became a citizen he changed it
to Sam GORDON
He was born in Mogilew, Russia
Fathers name was Chaim GORDON, mothers Golda Krutoecowsky
He stated his birthday was Jan 1, 1910 but my mother said he made
himself older when he came to the States. My mother also said he spent the
war in hiding but someone that claimed to have known him said he was in the
camps.
I don't have any more information than this and I have searched all
over the sites and don't know where else to look.

Thank you for anything
Harriet Bonnie Gordon Growe
Chandler, Arizona USA
MODERATOR NOTE: Please reply privately with family information. General
information and research techniques may be posted to the list.

myself.
My parents were both survivors but I know little to nothing about my
father because they were only married for 23 months and all I have are some
documents. My mother didn't have much time to learn about him and
all she told me is that he was an only child, which is hard to believe since
they were in Europe.

What information I do have is:
His Naturalization Certificate dated 9/3/52 in Detroit, MI
Their marriage license and his death certificate
His name was Schabsel GORDON and when he became a citizen he changed it
to Sam GORDON
He was born in Mogilew, Russia
Fathers name was Chaim GORDON, mothers Golda Krutoecowsky
He stated his birthday was Jan 1, 1910 but my mother said he made
himself older when he came to the States. My mother also said he spent the
war in hiding but someone that claimed to have known him said he was in the
camps.
I don't have any more information than this and I have searched all
over the sites and don't know where else to look.

Thank you for anything

Shalom,

I continue to be amazed and encouraged by the many of you who contact me
offering all types of assistance in the Yizkor Book Project - and believe

Together with these, there have been four new Translation Fund Projects

of these books online.

NYC Death Records #general

My grandfather's brother, Philip (Favel) GOLDENBERG died in the influenza
epidemic in 1918 in New York City. Two of my uncles >from Philadelphia had
to go to New York City to have him buried. We were never able to find out
where or if any records were kept of his burial. Does anyone know of such
death and/or burial records being kept by a New York City department?

Thank you.
