military records of Jewish Russians: Ukrainian 1896-1916 #general

DrYattz <winwinsit@...>
 

I'm finding several references to military service by most of the male
siblings of my wife's grandfather. I have a picture of one great
uncle in the uniform of a Russian army soldier, perhaps a Prikazni
(Lance corporal) of the Life Dragoons Pskovski, in 1897. Yet another
served in the Russian infantry as a private for four months, later
emigrating to the US in 1904. It is family lore that my wife's
grandfather was an orderly in the Russian army early in WWI, until he
learned he was to be sent to the front, whereupon he deafened an ear
to avoid combat.

All had the name KORENMAN in the Ukraine before becoming CORNs
stateside. So, I'm wondering if there is some archive of Russian
military records >from the late 1800s and early 1900s which might
contain documents regarding these ancestors. Does anyone know of such
records?

Re: Naturalization for GIs in WWII #general

Joseph Hirschfield
 

There is a very enlightening and entertaining documentary entitled "The
Ritchie Boys" who were mostly European refugees who came to the US before
WWII and were recruited to serve in the Army. They were prized for their
intelligence and facility with language, particularly those who spoke German.
Thousands were trained at Camp Ritchie, Maryland and served primarily as
interrogators of German prisoners. Their often clever if not brilliant
techniques and escapades are described by several of these ex-GI's who are
interviewed for the film. Many the refugees who served as GI's died in the
war. These can be traced with the aid of their U.S. military records.

Dear Genners,
I found in the naturalization records of a great-uncle the names Abu Chany
and Kass. Is anyone familiar with these towns? My thoughts were that he came
from Ordarma. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Donating material to an archive #general

I have considered this problem not only for myself but for members of
our JGS. I think you have to specify what is to be done with it
but you must also find out >from the recipient what they would do.
Certainly your agreement must specify that you would have access,
particularly if your material goes into a general collection.
Should your material be kept together or distributed according to their
cataloging system? At YIVO I have noticed that there are
materials donated by individuals which are kept in a single file, but
this might also mean they are not cataloged properly or as you
might wish.

Yizkor Book Project, September 2010 #latinamerica

Shalom,

Well the holidays are over (for now) which seems to hint that we should get
back to work... Still, I don't think that the Yizkor Book Project should be
ashamed of our activity over the last month. I was particularly happy to see
the renewal of a number of long standing projects and I hope this trend
continues.

Note that the YB Project exists through a great number of volunteers who
translate, transliterate, transcribe and edit material which becomes part of
the various translation projects and I send out my deep appreciation for the
very heartwarming dedication and involvement of these many wonderful people
in the YB Project.

Now to figures. During this last month we have added these 4 new projects:

Stuart Rosenblatt - The Keeper of the Faith #unitedkingdom

louise@...
 

This has been sent to me by RTE - Ireland's National Radio and Television
Service - and may be of interest to members of this discussion group.
Ireland is included in Jewish Communities and Records United Kingdom.

To be broadcast Saturday 9th October at 6.05pm and repeated on Sunday 10th
October at 7pm

RTÉ Radio 1
RTÉ RADIO 1?S DOCUMENTARY ON ONE
Stuart Rosenblatt ? The Keeper of the Faith

This radio documentary maps and explores Jewish Ireland, and our guide is
Dubliner Stuart Rosenblatt.

Enter the world of Jewish Ireland past and present with genealogist Stuart
Rosenblatt as guide. Stuart is the author of the 16-volume Rosenblatt
Series, the most comprehensive collection of genealogical material ever
compiled on an entire Jewish community in any country.

Stuart's database contains details on over 44,000 people and their family
relationships. These and other facts you'd expect, and might even find
elsewhere - but Rosenblatt's work usually takes a step or two further.

Rosenblatt devotes "two weeks out of every one" to this unpaid,
unacknowledged work. His daughter Sonia tells us how family life has
suffered. As a businessman, Stuart is first to admit it's an expensive
hobby.

He got the genealogy bug fifteen years ago with a curiosity about his
mother's family, the Jacksons. We discover the Jackson family had roots in
a village called Ackmene, and this tiny Lithuanian village was the one most
common place of origin for Irish Jews. They did not leave and arrive in
Ireland en masse when their migrations began in the 1880s - no one really
knows why they arrived here but their descendants give us a few clues.

So the story of Jewish Ireland is the story of a global village called
Ackmene. It's a quintessentially Irish story - where everybody knows
everybody else - and there are nothing like six degrees of separation. It's
the story of a fast disappearing world. Rosenblatt estimates the community,
those who come to Shul (Synagogue), at no more than 380 with the majority
from the older generation.
Anyone can access Stuart's work in the National Archive or National Library
through the 16 printed volumes of the Rosenblatt Series, which he has
donated to the nation. And the work continues with Stuart desperately
looking for some missing bits of his jigsaw, such as several volumes of
Alien Registration Files >from the start of the 20th century and details of
Jewish school children in schools records all over Ireland.

Produced by Clare Cronin and funded by the Broadcasting Authority of
Ireland's Sound and Vision funding Scheme.
Broadcast Saturday 9th October at 6.05pm and repeated on Sunday 10th October

Town - Tufecht? Tufesht? #romania

Barbara Sontz
 

Hello, ROM-SIG -

Can someone help me to identify a place name? Two members of the
same family listed their Romanian birth town as Tufecht and Tufesht
on their US WWI draft registration records.

The extended family comes >from Iasi and Codaesti. Some identify
their Romanian residence as Tibana, which I believe is some sort
of political or geographical subdivision of Iasi.

Could the town possibly be Trifesti? I see several locations with
that name in Romania and Moldava. One of them is identified as part
of Iasi county.

Many thanks for any help you can give me.
