Smolvichi #belarus

Mark and Faith Lustik <lusyke@...>
 

I am researching the FREEDLAND/FRIEDLAND and HORWITZ families from
Smolowitz/Smolevichi. Shlomo and Sarah Horwitz Freedland had the
following children: Nathan born 1886, Harry Gerson, Jenny, Molly,
Joseph and Sol. Sarah Horwitz parents were Simon and Anna Getzoff
Horwitz. I believe Simon and Anna were married around 1885 and was
wondering if a marriage record might exist.
Thanks,

Mark Lustik

Searching BARTEL, BERLIN, HEUER #general

Richard.Sapon-White@...
 

I am seeking information on Ethel BARTEL BERLIN, the first wife of my uncle Philip M. BERLIN. They were married in New York City on Oct. 11, 1925. Ethel's parents were William BARTEL and Sarah HEUER. Ethel was 25 years old at the time. She and Philip were divorced by 1935 and she may have moved to California at some point. I would appreciate it if anyone with any information about her or her descendants could contact me. Thanks!

OLKA,SLOVAKIA #hungary

Family Tree <familyt@...>
 

I am in receipt of your message on H-SIG regarding Olka, Slovakia. Our
firm is actively developing tours for small groups and/or individuals to
areas otherwise difficult to access without a guide, car and an
interpreter. These are known as ROOTS TOURS, and currently Louis
Schonfeld is leading two groups through parts of the Ukraine and
Slovakia. You can access our web site (see below) or contact us at our
e-mail address: mailto:familyt@hungary.net

For your information, Olka did not have its own, independent Jewish
registration. Instead, the registration was done in Stropkov.
Registers are available >from 1851.

If you have any questions about ROOTS TOURS or genealogical research in
Central Europe, please contact us!

X-Message-Number: 1

I have determined >from LDS records that indeed members of my family are
buried at the cemetery in Kriva Olka, almost 100 years ago. (Olka, to
the
uninformed, is triway between Medzilaborce, Stropkov, and Humenne)

However, I just received a note >from the secretary of Olka that there is
NO
Jewish cemetery, nor has there ever been one.

I will be in Olka shortly (!). How do I proceed in locating where the
cemetery was? Does anyone have this kind of experience? Hmmm...Kriva
Olka
is a suburb of Olka, and perhaps the secretery just doesn't know, or is
not
familiar, or -

Thanks,

Fw: Nine-Days #general

Haim Fridman <fridman@...>
 

Judith Romney Wegner presented an excellent explanation of that period of
national mourning referred to as "The Nine Days".

It is a pity that she added an inaccurate assessment of the degree in which
this period is observed in Israel:
In Israel, because the establishment of the State is widely perceived as
the first step in the redemption of the Jewish people, many of those who
observe Tish'ah B'Av at all fast only until noon rather than all day long.
ALL Orthodox Jews observe Tisha Be'Av in its entirety (unless medical
reasons preclude), both in Israel and throughout the world. The discussion
as to the relevance given the re-establishment of the Jewish State, is
beyond the scope of JewishGen. If I may be permitted to convey my personal
opinion, this period commemorates the seige of ancient Jerusalem which
culminated in the destruction of the Temple on Tisha Be'Av, bringing with it the great Exile of the Jews >from Eretz Yisrael. One can regard this period as the foundation stone of the suffering Jews experienced over the last 2000 years.

Fw: Litvaks in Galicia #general

Haim Fridman <fridman@...>
 

David Price asked:
We are looking into the history of the name JUPITER. Joseph J (born early
1800's, d 1893) married Sarah Leah HONIG (died 1890's) lived in Galicia
(on Dniester River, near Stanislow, now Ivano-Frankovsk), near Lemberg
(Lvov), maybe Saharia, Galicia. Beider's book says the name is >from the
small town, UPITE, in the district PANEVEZYS (PONEVYEZH,PONIEWICZ) in
Lithuania. Upite was founded in 1780. The district had 50000 Jews out of
a
population of 200000 by 1900. Why was there a migration >from Lithuania to
Galicia? Was there a historical reason?
Yes, there were Litvaks who settled in Galicia. The reason was that the
Litvaks, renowned for their scholarship, were welcomed as Melamdim
(religious school teachers) in Galicia. I am not aware of particular
research on this trend, but the explantion was given by a former Galician
whose family used the traditionally Litvak form of pronunciation in Yiddish
and Hebrew.
