A film about Siauliai, courtesy of Tomek Wisniewski #lithuania

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

One of the twenty short films I am currently showing within my virtual
Museum of Family History is one about Siauliai, Lithuania, entitled "Jewish
Szawle Siauliai." The film created by Tomek Wisniewski, is worth seeing. The
film is eight minutes long and is accompanied by a wonderful Yiddish song
that should be familiar to those of us who know Yiddish music. You can find
the link to this film and all the others on the main page I've created for
Tomek at www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/tomek/films.htm

Enjoy!

Different names - same person? #lithuania

Denise Fletcher <dfletcheroz@...>
 

I have located two Vital Records references to my late grandmother,
Leah Fletcher (Fleiserine / Fleysher). One is her internal passport
record, which lists her maiden name as Binsky, which is what we've
always believed it to be. However, I've subsequently found the birth
record for one of my uncles (born in 1925), and here her maiden name
is listed as Vainsteinyte [Vainshtein]. We have no knowledge of her
having been married before, and the internal passport record is from
1920, when she was already married to my grandfather, Benjamin
Fletcher (Binjominas Fleseris /Beniamin Flesher) Can anyone shed any
light on this discrepancy and any possible reasons for it? The family
lived in Balberieskis (Balberishok).

Thanks & regards

Researching: Fletcher (Fleiseras / Fleysher) and Novozhenetz.

One of the twenty short films I am currently showing within my virtual

Lost World." The film was created using a number of pre-war postcards and
family and Lodz photographs by Tomek Wisniewski. The film is ten minutes

and all the others on the main page I've created for Tomek at

Six more short films that may be of interest to you.... #belarus

steve725@...
 

There are now a total of ten short films of Tomek Wisniewski being shown at
the Museum of Family History. I have announced four so far, and six new ones
are ready for you to view. Most of them have interesting instrumental music
to go along with the film's scenes.

These new films include:

1. Of Bialystok, Poland:
--"The Kaufman Brothers", one of whom was Boris Kaufman, the
cinematographer for "Twelve Angry Men" and others. The brothers were all
natives of Bialystok.
--"A Yiddish Song in Bialystok." A large group gathers in Bialystok in
1940 to hear a couple sing what seems to be a Yiddish song. Can anyone
identify the song by name? If so, please contact me privately. More films of
Bialystok are to come, including a film about the Warner Brothers (also >from
Bialystok).

2. Of Zabludow, Poland:
--Two films of the Zabludow Synagogue, scans of photos of the interior
and exterior of the synagogue, cir 1927.

3. Of Kossovo, Belarus (pre-1939, Kosow Poleski, Poland):
--"Berteza Kartuzka: The Street That is No More, 1916"

4. Of Minsk, Belarus:
--"Jewish Minsk." While watching this film, you can imagine you are
walking or in a horse and buggy down the streets of Minsk as Tomek scans
across a few of his very old photographs of Minsk. Also photographs of the
synagogue complex and the Choral Synagogue.

You can access these films, as well as the previous films announced, on the
webpage I've created listing Tomek Wisniewski's films at
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/tomek/films.htm .
Enjoy!

Searching for GARMISE/Garmiza, KLINGON/Kleingon, ELGART, LEVENE from
Minsk and Minsk area. Many Garmises and Garmizas are documented in Yad
Vashem and in Yizkor books >from Rubezhvichi, Stolbce, Koidanov. (We
are linked to Minsk and Koidanov, at least)

These families were intermarried in several ways and I'm trying to
link up the various family trees I've gotten >from supposed relatives
with the same surnames in their trees. In one of these trees >from a
person I've contacted:
1. Garmise and Klingon/Kleingon also appear
2 there is a naming practice also found in my family, changing Anshel
to Archibald, something I've not run across before,
3. connections to Colchester, Connecticut Jewish farming community
sponsored by Baron de Hirsch as had my grandfather and his Garmise
uncles. (but in this fellow's tree, it's his Klingons that lived
there)
