SOKOLOWER: Translation - help would be appreciated #poland

Avraham (Avi) Ayalon <ayalonav@...>
 

Dear list members,

My late grandfather, whom I am called after, Abraham SOKOLOWER was born
in Zielun, a village at road number 541 >from Zuromin to Lidzbark His
parents' names were Faybus (or Fajbus) and Chawa. I received some vital
records concerning them both in the Polish as well in the Russian
languages.

Any assistance in translating them will be much appreciated here.

The links to the first five documents are:

Article in Time Magazine on Yizkor Book Project #lithuania

Marjorie Rosenfeld <marjorierosenfeld@...>
 

The current, May 31, 2004, issue of Time Magazine has an article on
JewishGen's Yizkor Book Project.

Called "Books of Life, the article is available online at:

http://www.time.com/time/generations/article/0,9171,1101040531-641131-1,0=

The article is a really nice plug for JewishGen and Yizkor Book Project
Manager Joyce Field. There's also a good photo of Joyce!

Westan-naus, France current location and OBERSON genealogy #france

Judy L Pfaff <pfaff@...>
 

Hello, I am writing this for a friend. She is working
on her OBERSON family genealogy.

OBERSON, John Sylvester was born in Westan-naus, France, 10 February 1835.

OBERSON, Peter was born in Westan-naus, France, 22 October 1843.

OBERSON, Nancy was born near Paris, France, 14 June 1846.

John Sylvester, Peter and Nancy were siblings who all came to
America about 1851.

We have not been able to locate "Westan-naus, France."
Could anyone help us with a current location name.

Thank you for any assistance you can give.

Need Lithuanian researcher recommendation #lithuania

Ted Gostin
 

I'm looking for recommendations on current researchers available in
Vilnius. I need a private researcher because the research I need done
goes beyond the records available in the archives, and because I
need the research done a little more quickly than the archives can
usually manage.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Please respond privately.

Translation Help Needed #poland

Scott D. Seligman <heyscott@...>
 

I've posted on ViewMate at
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/index.asp
a couple of pages in Russian >from the report of the Soviet State
Commission on Investigation of Nazi Crimes concerning the town of
Porozow (Porozovo). [VM4132 and VM4133]. One is handwritten and one is
printed, and neither is easy to read due to the poor quality of the
microfilm. Can anyone help me decipher even portions of these documents?

Many thanks...

VM4152 - 5: An Uniform and Individuals looking to Identify #general

Timothy Patton <fanoemmitt@...>
 

Hello;

I am hoping that someone can help me identify people,
location and an uniform on some pictures I have posted on
ViewMate.

I believe most of them are related to the SALOMON
or KISTNER families. Two of the pictures are >from some type of
gathering at a park.Two of them in more remote areas. One picture
has a person in a uniform in it. I have tried to compare it to
WWII uniforms but have not found a match.

There are descriptions with the pictures but most of it
is what we believe not what we know for sure.

If anyone can help identify anyone or anything >from any of
these 4 pictures it would be greatly appreciated.

Sephard Prayer Books in Ukraine #ukraine

Michelle Frager <lulu_brooks@...>
 

Dear List:

Had I thought to check at least one or two web sources before
posting, I would have found that there is an interesting opinion
re:"Sfard" prayer books - at least in the JewishGen Discussion Group
Archives, where I should have gone first.

It seems the Chassidim used a liturgy or order of prayer different
from other Jews and >from the Lubavitch, who some posters wrote, used
the Nusach Ari. There was some thought this was to create continuity
with pre-Inquisition-Diaspora practice.

There was also some immigration into the area, Odessa, for one
example, >from Turkey, Greece and even Italy, some wrote. But they
didn't posit the idea that it was necessarily the source of the
Nusach Sfard.

This is something I intend to look into through other sources. If
anything of interest turns up, I will post as it could be suggestive
for some researchers, like myself.

My appreciation to those of you who answered my original post.

VM 4149 - Female Name Bacfrah, 1871 London #general

Jennifer Broughton <jen_b@...>
 

Dear Genners

Please see the extract for my Joseph/s family in the
1871 census on View Mate - url:

http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=4149

The family arrived in London >from Poland (Zgierwz?) in about 1866-67
and the fourth youngest child seems to be named Bacfrah,
I wondered if anyone else had come across this name and might
know its origins. In previous censuses she became Rebecca
which was the same as her mother's name.

Thanks in advance for any help
