Fulda and nearby towns and DP-camp Bad Salzschlirf #general

some day <onlyworse@...>
 

Dear all!

Does anybody know something about or lived in one of
the following towns, which are near Fulda, Germany?
Poppenhausen, Steinbach, Luetter, Utrrichshausen,
Weyhers, Wuestensachsen ??

Any information is very appreciated

Also I am still looking for information about the
DP-camp in Bad Salzschlirf (1946-1949). It is
impossible to find something about it in the archives
in Germany, USA and Israel.

Thank you all for reading the message.

Please replay to listmann@freenet.de

ZIZKOVICH? VM 6735/6/7/9 #general

Subject: ZIZKOVICH - VM 6735/6/7/9
I would appreciate any responses to the photos I have posted on viewmate.

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/index.asp

Two of the pictures seem to have been taken in Preili but I would be interested
to learn where the group photo was taken - (perhaps in Latvia or on arrival to
Israel?).

Please respond directly to me at alma_hall@mac.com

Many thanks

Researching: sounds like ZISTKOVICH, ZISKOVITS Sara believed to be born
Dvinsk moved to Riga and then to Israel (Palestine). Family may have originated
from Ukraine. One brother may have been left in Russia.

Kaunas District Wills Questions #general

Connie Fisher Newhan
 

As a contributor to Litvak SI Kaunas uyezd (district) group I have been sent
several excel files. On one, I found a Court Inheritance File on an index
for Kaunas District Wills 1872-1883 for that lists Abram Itsik FELDMAN, son of
Movsha, as the executor of a will for Shlioma LEYKOVICH (LIKOVICH) d 1879,
in the town of Seredzius, Kaunas Uyezd, Kaunas District. Also listed as an
executor is David Itsik EYLBERG, son of Meyer. There are also the names of the
person who drew the will and three witnesses, each >from different nearby
towns. I am not sure if Shlioma LEYKOVICH is male or female. I looked on the
GNDB and there are 35 entries, 12 are female names, 23 are male names.

My questions:

How likely is it that Abram Itsik FELDMAN and David Itsik EYLBERG as
executors of the will are related to the decedent Shlimona LEYKOVICH?

How likely is it that LEYKOVICH was a woman leaving a will? Did women have
wills or only men?

Is there any significance to the fact that the three witnesses were all >from
different towns?

I believe Abram Itsik FELDMAN may be a brother of my ggm and wonder if these
other names may be related based on Feldman's being an executor to the will.

I would appreciate any insight list members may have regarding my questions.

acrostics on tombstones #belarus

Cnydorf@...
 

Dear Belarussiggers
I am writing about this to ask if other siggers have noticed
something like what I found and to suggest that others be on the lookout for it....
My ggfather Abraham BERGER (1838-1918) son of Yitskhok Levi lived in
Haradok in the Vilna gubernia and died in New York . When I showed a friend a
photo of his headstone she noticed somehting surprising. If the first letters
each line of the inscription are read downward it spells out a message. There
is Aleph Beys, for Av meaning father, Yud Tsadik Khes Kuf, spelling out the
name Yitskhok. At the end are the letters Lamed Ayin which I interpret as a
diminutive ending so that the whole message is "Av Yitskhokle".
Does anyone know whether acrostics like this are common on headstones
from Belarus and other parts of Europe?
Regards

I cannot vouch for the correctness of the spellings because of the

Does anyone have any idea where these places might be?
The spelling is: Bratolyubovka and Annovka. Both places are in Ukraine,
north-east of Odessa.

I don't have a map showing the places, but the "directions" are:
Between Odessa and Dnipropetrovsk (Ekaterinoslav) there is Krivoj Rog
(north-east of Odessa). Now, north-west of Krivoj Rog there is a smaller
town, Kirovograd. Bratolyubovka is between Krivoj Rog and Kirovograd.
Annovka is north-north-west of Krivoj Rog, between Krivoj Rog and
Zheltyje Vody.

between which towns your two shtetls are:

I forgot to add that Kirovograd used to be called Elisavetgrad. So if
you use the old maps:

look for Elisavetgrad in the Kherson Gubernya. (Kherson is spelled in
Cyrillic "XEPCOH" and "X" is towards the end of the alphabet.)
