Nachatovich #ukraine

Sarah L Meyer
 

Hi Eli,
I looked up NACHATOVICH in Beider's book on Jewish Surnames in the Russian
Empire, without success but changing the C to a K yielded "NAKHATOVICH SM
See NOKHUM" (sm = secondary surname derived >from a masculine given name).
The name NOKHUM is common in Courland, Shavli, Belostok and Petersburg
according to Beider, who also mentions that the German spelling uses a C
instead of the K. Nachman is derived >from Menachem (and means comfort).
Also you need to be aware that the "ovich" end is Russian for "son of ".

These names are included in the book by David and Tamar de Sola Pool: An

Most of the names known are because of legal actions against them. [The
captain of the ship who brought them to Nieuw Amsterdam, dissatisfied
with what they paid him, sued them for full costs. Other legal briefs
against some of them included their names as well.] Not all the names
are known, unfortunately.

Abraham & David Israel, Moses Ambrosius [Lumbrozo], Asser Levy, Solomon

Salvador d'Andrade, Jacob Cohen Henriques, Abraham de Lucena, Salvador

If you are interested in these first Jews to Nieuw Amsterdam, I would
strongly recommend that you get ahold of the de Sola Pools' book, which
is a history of the oldest Jewish congregation on the continent:
Shearith Israel. Rabbi David de Sola Pool also wrote the book Portraits

Ukraine SIG Vital Records Project ... Will you help scan? #ukraine

rondoctor@...
 

Dear Ukraine SIG Friends,

This year Ukraine SIG began a major new project to obtain birth,
marriage and death records by scanning microfilms into digital format.
We are making good progress in acquiring historical vital records >from
microfilms in the LDS Library, but we need much more help. WE NEED
VOLUNTEERS TO SCAN THE MICROFILMS THAT HAVE RECORDS FOR UKRAINE SIG's TOWNS.

Thanks to all of you who responded to our FHL/FSC Scanner Survey, we
have identified places around the U.S. that have the best equipment for
converting LDS microfilmed data into image files.

You don't have to know how to read Russian, Ukrainian, Hebrew or
Yiddish. You don't need to be an expert in using microfilm scanners. If
you have some experience handling jpg images, it won't be hard to learn
about scanning and saving Jewish records for Ukraine towns on a thumb
drive. You will send the files to us, and we will get them translated
and indexed.

These are the places where we can mass-scan records on film borrowed
from LDS archives:
Bloomfield Hills, MI, Family History Center
Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society (You need to be a
member.)
Chicago area: Arlington Heights Library
Cleveland Public Library
Dallas Public Library
Los Angeles, CA, Family History Center in West L.A.
Mesa, AZ, Family History Center
New York City: Center for Jewish History (downtown)
New York City Family History Center (uptown)
Oakland, CA, Family History Center
Washington, DC, area: Family History Center in Kensington, MD
Worcester, MA, Public Library

New York area residents: A terrific day trip to Manhattan would include
half a day at the Museum of Jewish Heritage — A Living Memorial to the
Holocaust <http://www.mjhnyc.org/>; and half a day at the Center for
Jewish History <http://www.cjh.org/>;, just a short hop >from the museum.

If you live within commuting distance >from any of these places and can
spend as little as two hours at a time there, you can make a valuable
contribution to the vital records project. Please get in touch with
Harvey Kabaker, coordinator of the Ukraine SIG vital records scanning
project, at harvey.kabaker@verizon.net

Endnote: These Family History/FamilySearch Centers have no scanners, or
older ones that are not useful for this project:
Albany, NY; Annandale, VA; Bellevue, WA; Brewster, MA; Calgary, Alberta
Canada; Cherry Hill, N.J.; Chicago area: Schaumburg, IL; Clinton, NJ;

you can't help with the scanning project, you can move this project
forward by donating to our work. To make a donation to our "Ukraine SIG

Re: Need help with a surname #ukraine

The first CH is a gutteral as in Chanukah, so Nakhatovich might be a better spelling. In Cyrillic characters it would look like NAXATOB*4, where * looks like a backwards N and the top of the 4 is open.
Googling it in Cyrillic gives a number of people with this name, including some in Ukraine. To find out what records exist >from Kremenchug, search the database at rtrfoundation.org.
