Lviv Jewish Community records -- on LDS microfilms? #poland

Jim Bennett <bennett@...>
 

The Family History Library Catalogue shows a whole series of 19th century
metrical records of the Jews of Lviv/Lvov/Lemberg, Yet no film numbers.

Do the films exist? Can they be ordered to local FHC's?

Janova by Frances SENIOR Melamed, a book recommendation #lithuania

Susan Goldsmith
 

Dear SIG,
I have just had an opportunity to read Janova by Jonava-born Frances
SENIOR Melamed z"l. The book was published by Janova Press, Cincinnati,
Ohio, 1976, ISBN 0-917294-01-7. I recommend the book to those researching
families >from Jonava, and also >from Lithuania, generally.

The subject matter is distinctive in that it focuses on the period
prior to WWI, and on the Russian government's 1914 order for Jews to
leave their homes within hours, before the arrival of the advancing German
Army, out of Russian fear that the Jews would support the Germans. It
brings alive the harrowing exodus >from Jonava (and other towns) and the
journey to Chernigov in the Ukraine as well as the equally arduous return
to a changed Jonava in 1920.

The author, born into the SENIOR family in about 1895, provides a
detailed description of family life,childhood activities, relationships
within the community, and daily life in the first years of the 20th
century.

What is quite remarkable and moving is that the author was a writer
at heart, even in her early years. She made and kept notes of her
observations which she brought with her to the United States. After a
full life, she returned to these notes and wrote as freshly as though she
were still in the haim.

In addition to the SENIOR family, other families mentioned in the book
are SISITSKY, BLAKHONSKY, BURAK, SABLOVITZ, GINSBURG, LUBIN, and in
Chernigov, RIVIN and FRAIDIN.

If you wish to obtain a copy of the book please write me privately and
I will forward your message to the publisher Rita Edlin. I have no financial
interest in the book.

Best Regards,
Susan Goldsmith

A film about Siauliai, courtesy of Tomek Wisniewski #lithuania

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

One of the twenty short films I am currently showing within my virtual
Museum of Family History is one about Siauliai, Lithuania, entitled "Jewish
Szawle Siauliai." The film created by Tomek Wisniewski, is worth seeing. The
film is eight minutes long and is accompanied by a wonderful Yiddish song
that should be familiar to those of us who know Yiddish music. You can find
the link to this film and all the others on the main page I've created for
Tomek at www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/tomek/films.htm

Enjoy!

Different names - same person? #lithuania

Denise Fletcher <dfletcheroz@...>
 

I have located two Vital Records references to my late grandmother,
Leah Fletcher (Fleiserine / Fleysher). One is her internal passport
record, which lists her maiden name as Binsky, which is what we've
always believed it to be. However, I've subsequently found the birth
record for one of my uncles (born in 1925), and here her maiden name
is listed as Vainsteinyte [Vainshtein]. We have no knowledge of her
having been married before, and the internal passport record is from
1920, when she was already married to my grandfather, Benjamin
Fletcher (Binjominas Fleseris /Beniamin Flesher) Can anyone shed any
light on this discrepancy and any possible reasons for it? The family
lived in Balberieskis (Balberishok).

Thanks & regards
