Re: ordering microfilms for LDS #ukraine

Ariel Parkansky
 

Hello Kaye,
I've already ordered many copies of microfilms >from LDS but always knowing what
I was asking for. Normally I've searched for records on the Jewishgen database
(that indicate microfilm and record number) and with this information I
requested to LDS the original document.
The LDS form to request records asks for specific microfilm details. I'm not
sure they are going to send you anything if you only ask for a name.

In any case, if you have the chance to have an answer, I can recommend you to
ask for census or revision lists because they give you a global view of families
(parents, children, ages, etc.) in only one document.

Some Information #ukraine

Gloria Wolfson
 

I'm looking to find some information on my grandfather. He immigrated to the
US >from Brichany (Moldava) but we know that he wasn't >from Brichany
originally. My father's family belonged to the Smotricher Podalier society
in Brooklyn (a burial society) and we have reason to believe that my
grandfather was >from that area originally. His name was David Tsvi ben Zev
HaLevi Krupnick (spelled Crupnic in Moldava) born about 1968. His wife's
name (my gm) was Goldie (we do not know her birth name) and she was born in
approximately 1873.

Family lore says that he had fled a Hassidic community in the general area
because he didn't want to be religious. And we have pictures of the family
taken in Moldava that show The family lore also says that he came >from a
rabbinical line. And we have pictures of the family taken in Moldava that
show them and their sons with their hair uncovered. I can scan the picture
in and send it if that would be helpful.


If anyone has any information it would be greatly appreciated.

Traveling Prayer Books circa 1916 from Europe? #general

Anna Reuter <anna94306@...>
 

Dear Genners:

I have posted two View Mate images:

Front page of a Rosh Hashanah Machzor.
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=16124
Outside covers of the Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur Machzorim.
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=16125

They are small books, perhaps 3x4 inches.
All Hebrew except for the Publisher's Name
Wien (Vienna) 1916
Verlag (Pubisher) Jos. Schlesinger
(Address listed in Budapest)

I have googled trying to find more information about them.
Joseph Schlesinger was a well known Publisher of Hebrew Texts in Europe.
They also shipped these Texts to the US and Canada, but with English Translations. Usually, the Machzorim were larger than these small (traveling?) books.

My Question: Were these particular small Machzorim purchased in Europe and used
for prayer during their Journey to the US?
If so, it would increase their Sentimental Value to me.
They were found among my Father's possessions.

My Grandmother, Chana Roiter, and 5 children (including my 15 year old Father)
boarded a Steamship at Boulogne-Sur-Mer on September 15, 1920.
Rosh Hashanah began September 13 in 1920.
Obviously, the family had to be en route >from Romania to France during the
Holidays. They arrived at Ellis Island on September 25. Obviously, they were
onboard ship during Yom Kippur. They were Orthodox Jews and 3 sons were post
Bar Mitzvah age.

Please reply privately,

Thanks so much,

Re: Evidence of a disaster #general

There are several nice sources out there on plagues, epidemics and
pandemics. When I see a family losing multiple people within a year, I
start looking for typhus (often miscategorized as typhoid), cholera and
influenza. These epidemics (and fears of epidemics) can also show up in
increased quarantines at entry points, time spent in quarantine hospitals,
and other steps off the beaten path that can have a genealogist scrambling
to figure out what happened.
