Name DINEVICH on Russian Passport #general

NormK12065
 

JGenrs,

A Russian passport was recently found in the home of a cousin. It was
issued in Odessa in March 1913. The name as translated appears to be
Cyrie Atperova DINEVICH. The name also appears in German and appears to
be spelled Cyrel Di'nevitsch. None of the family recognizes the name
although the dates are about right for my grandfather Nathan Litvak's
departure >from Hamburg, Germany. My Russian friend indicated that
DINEVICH was the father's name. Is DINEVICH a patronymic? If so what
would the father's name be?

Again thanks for any assistance.

Route from Ekaterinopol, Ukraine to Libau, Latvia #general

NormK12065
 

JGenrs,

A hand written itinerary of the route my family traveled >from Ekaterinopol
(Katerinopol) to the ship in Libau, Latvia in 1923 was recently discovered
by a relative in a desk drawer. It was written in Russian which I had
translated. Maybe it will help some others and then I have some questions.

2 June Departed Ekaterinopol
5 June Arrived Kiev
11 June Departed Kiev
13 June Arrived Moscow
20 June Departed Moscow
21 June Arrived Rezekne
22 June Arrived Riga (This is where they obtained their passport)
25 June Departed Riga
26 June Arrived Libau
16 July Departed on ship for Canada

Questions:
Why follow this route instead of going to Odessa to sail? What would have
been the mode of transportation? It appears by the dates that some of it
had to be by train. Was there a place for Jewish Emigrants to stay while
waiting for the ship in Libau?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Information re Soldiers Russian Army #general

Kelly Modlin
 

I notice that every now and again people are seekink information regarding
Jewish Soldiers who served in the Red Army And various other Armies
affiliated to it

During the years of searching for my wife Pnina's identity I accumulated
the names and addresses of Archives and Organizations dealing with the
subject. As a result of our writting to the Russian Red Cross, seeking
information about Pnina's Father they found her brother who still lives in
Russia. He and his wife have since visited with us, at our home, here in
Israel.

Inter-library loans between Canada and U.S.? #general

Hi, everyone!
Has anyone had occasion to attempt to borrow microfilms >from the Canadian
National Archives to a facility in the U.S via the Archives' inter-
institutional or inter-library loan program?

I'm trying to do this through my local library here in Atlanta, and
they're having trouble. It seems the network they participate in is not
the same one that the Canadian Archives use.

Any suggestions, ideas, etc on how to make this process work? Should I
maybe be using a university library, or our U.S. National Archives branch
here? Other ideas?

Tracing HIPKISS #general

Is there anyone with the family name of HIPKISS or some derivative of
it? I am seemingly unable to trace the name through the normal genealogy
sites. It was the maiden name of my grandmother who lived in Birmingham,
England, UK.

Many thanks in anticipation.

The OSTROWIEC Yzkor website is OK #yizkorbooks

Ostrowiec Swietokrzyski, Poland
OSTROWIEC - A Town Between Two Rivers

The online version of 'The OSTROWIEC Memorial Book' is once again available
online:

Visit the JewishGen's Yzkor area
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html ) and use the existing
link.

On behalf of The Kampel Foundation I would like to thank you all for all
supporting emails and patience after last week's server-problems caused by
"hackers". To minimize this kind of problems in the future we are about to
setup a "mirror site" (exact copy of the original) in our Swedish server.

I take the opportunity to write few lines about the Ostrowiec project:

The published material is to be considered as "part one", as there is more
text in Yiddish and Hebrew to be translated and added as well as many photos
to be included in the "final version". And more, some photos are being
re-scanned to improve the quality of the online and/or offline versions.

We are working with the translations to Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish and
Polish. We are looking for volunteers to help "proof-read" the translations.

The Ostrowiec project includes the ongoing work for the Shtetlinks, and we
are about to create a "multimedia library", there we'll present photos about
people and places related to Ostrowiec and nearby shtetls and broadcast
videos (new and/or old one's).
Anyone willing to contribute with anything related to Ostrowiec (memorial
text material, photos, videos etc.) please let us know. We also welcome
families with roots in Poland to create a Family Memorial page at The
Memorial Family. We do all work and this service is free.

In the next few days you might expect some problem with some links at 'The
Memorial Family' website, we apologize for this, but once we have completed
the fine tuning the situation should go back to the normal.
Thank You!
