my genealogy in the web #ukraine

Pavel Bernshtam <pavelb@...>
 

Hi!

I have posted the very first version of my genealogy to the Web.
It contains all the listed people with only birth/death date place
without life events and family stories for only 2 families in Russian
(not translated yet).

http://javax.netfirms.com/genealogy/

I hope that this web site will help me to find more information and
intersections with other genealogy trees.

In the future I'll add english translations to the most interesting
family stories and more information.

The list of all surnames in my records (not just my direct ascendants)
is below:
ALPERIN , ALTERMAN , ALTSHULER , BENIN , BENIOMINSON , BERDICHEVSKY ,
BERLIN , BERNSHTAM , BEZDEZHENSKY , BLOKH , CHERVIN , DERES ,
DIKENSHTEIN , DUBINSKY , DUBOV , EIDERMAN , ETKIN , FEDOROV , FELDMAN ,

<< My mother in law has applied for some sort of compensation or pension based

application was rejected as they had no record of any "action" in that

area. She says the Germans basically got the local Polish/Ukrainian boys

to do their dirty work.


Has anyone heard of this town or the area ? Or know of where I might find

some information about it ?

>>

A quick google search turned up the information that the SS murdered 900 Jews
of "Ostrozec, Volhynia." See:

http://members.tripod.com/~ebionite/zikkar.htm

Another URL that appeared for Ostrozec was:

http://www.jewishgen.org/cemetery/e-europe/ukra-o.html

which indicated that Ostrozec or "Ostrozhets" is located 50 kilometers >from
Rovno and 16 kilometers >from Lutzk.

Chester G. Cohen's "Shtetl Finder Gazetteer" says that Ostrozhets is
northeast of Lvov and 15 kilometers north of "Malinov" ( or Mlynow), and that in 1897
the census reported its Jewish population as consisting of 636 Jews.

"Where We Once Walked" gives the map coordinates for Ostrozhets in the
Ukraine, 50 kilometers west of Rovno, as 50'40/15'33.

According to my "google" search "Ostrozhets" is one of the many towns about
which some information can be found in the "Encyclopedia of Jewish Life"


It behooves all Jewishgenners to consult Jewishgen's ShtetlSeeker, click on
its map function for the town sought. They should also try searching through
Jewishgen's Discussion Group Archives and the message archives of its Special
Interest Groups, and to remember to do websearches before posing questions
which they can often answer through their own efforts. I have often found it very
useful when looking for information I can't find in books or on the internet,
to use the "Search this website" box on Jewishgen's main page
(www.jewishgen.org). As always, while using Jewishgens' "searchbox" and looking elsewhere
one always has to keep in mind alternate spellings, some of which can be very
odd and even erroneous.


It may very well be true that the Germans incited the Poles and Ukrainians to
the Germans' "dirty work." Unfortunately, in many towns the Germans did not
even have to work hard to provoke the non-Jewish inhabitants Throughout their
histories, Poles and Ukrainians were often at loggerheads, and the Jews were
all too often blamed for the perceived problems of the antagonists.

In some towns the Germans or their collaborators would simply slaughter the
Jews, while in other towns the Jews would be rounded up and sent to ghettos
which were set up in larger towns and cities, or sent directly to concentration
or "death" camps.

I would be most grateful to anyone who can assist me with the translation
of the document at

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=2917

I believe it is a Russian-language death record of a sister of my
maternal grandmother, but I am particularly interested in all the place
names that are in the document.

Please reply to me directly, if you can help.

Translation of Medical Term Needed #galicia

Stephanie Weiner <laguna@...>
 

Greetings, Genners,

I have just received a death record, and would like to know what cause
of death was attributed to. The column heading is "Choroba i rodzaj
smierci" in what I assume is Polish, and "Krankheit und Todesart" in
German -- I'm assuming this is translated as "cause of death" or some
similar phrase. The term that is written in, as best as I can make it
out, is GRUZLICA. What might GRUZLICA be?

TIA for your help.

Hello,

My name is Veronique GOTH and I live in France.

I'm new in your group.

I'm looking for my great great grand mother's family.

She was Rachel GUNZBURG (rough spelling), born in October 1874 in Bobruisk,
in the suburb of Sluski.
She was the daughter of GUNZBURG Itzka Davidovitch, born in Bychev in 1855,
and Freida ??, born in 1860 in Bobruisk.
It seems she had five brothers, three gone abroad and two enlisted in the
army.
She married the May 1th 1896 to GORENSKY Chaïm Yankel Abramovich, born the
May 13th 1869 in Romny and deceaded the August 28th 1905 in Kiev, where he
was engineer at the Kiev electricity factory.

She had got a son : GORENSKY Boris (my grand father) and she went in France
with him.
Here, she made her studies of dental-surgeon, and then she followed at 13
boulevard Raspail in Paris.

I sincerely thank for all help and informations you could give to me.

"Nailand" or "Nayland."

I know now that it was a Yiddish-speaking Workmen's Circle (Arbeter Ring)
camp, and that it existed in Gillette, NJ, >from 1928 until at least 1930.

I've already asked YIVO, the Rutgers archives, the Jewish Historical
Society of MetroWest, and several other NJ historical societies. Someone
else has checked with Workmen's Circle; they have no information.

Does anyone recognize the name of the camp? Is there anyone reading who is
old enough to have gone there?

Any and all leads welcome. Private replies, please, unless they are of
