Pushing Back The Brick Wall

by Gary Mokotoff

Jewish genealogists with Eastern European ancestry hit a brick
wall in tracing their roots at about the year 1800 for two
reasons: (1) prior to that date Jews did not have hereditary
surnames; therefore, if there are any records of that time,
ancestors are identified only by their given names and perhaps
their patronymics; and (2) for many years the evidence was that
there were few records prior to 1800 that identified Jews by
name.

With the increased sophistication of Jewish genealogical
research, this brick wall is being pushed back at least a
century. Because Eastern European Jews historically name their
children after deceased ancestors, a number of more advanced
researchers have been able to analyze 18th-century documents and
identify their family based solely on given names. (See
"Tackling the Lack of Surnames in 18th-Century Russian Records"
by Len Yodaiken in the Fall 1999 issue of Avotaynu.) The Fall
2000 issue of Avotaynu addressed the second obstacle, lack of
documents, by noting that Polish nobility records contain
information about the population on their lands, including Jews.
(See "Can Jewish Genealogists Successfully Research 18th-Century
Poland?" by Sallyann Amdur Sack.) The region covered is Poland
and the Grand Duchy of Lithuania which today comprises portions
of Belarus, Lithuania, Poland, and Ukraine. Researchers should
first determine which nobleman owned his/her ancestor's town and
then find out where the private archives is now located. There
is a good chance that these records will include censuses and
lists of Jews who lived on the noble's lands and in his towns.

To assist in the research, Avotaynu has published on the
Internet all known holdings of the private archives of Polish
magnates at http://www.avotaynu.com/magnates.htm. For example,
if your ancestors lived under the rule of the MIERZEJEWSKI
family, their private archives is at the Academy of Sciences in
Vilnius. The SAMBIRS'KYI family archives is at the State
Historical Archive in Kiev. One researcher found censuses in
the CZARTORYSKI family archives in Krakow that included entries
on the Ba'al Shem Tov (1700-1760), the founder of Hassidism, in
the Besht's hometown of Medzhibozh!

First Name "Benche" #general

KissenaBlvd@...
 

Dear Group,

There is some dispute as to what my grandfather's Hebrew name was.
Cousins called him Benche -- with the "che" pronounced as in "chest."
I presume Benche is a nickname. But a nickname for what? If it is
relevant, he was born in Novogrudok, in northwest Minsk gubernia, in 1896.

Re: "Re: Vladivostock-TALALAYEVSKY" #general

NFatouros@...
 

In her message of 02-0809 Beatrice Markel asked for help in finding out
about a "cousin, Lazor TALALAYEVSKY, who lived and worked in Vladivostock
for at least 6 years during the 1930's." She had hoped to find
information about him >from the present head of the Jewish Community but
was disappointed.

Given the anti-Jewish and anti-Zionist policies of the Soviets which
developed during the 1920's I doubt that there was an identifiable Jewish
community in Vladivostock during the 1930's. Still, I imagine that people
of Jewish origin did work there in some governmental capacity or as clerks
or manager of a factory. If they met as Jews, it must have been
clandestinely.

The years of cousin Lazor's stint in Vladivostock coincided with "The
Great Terror" during which Japan invaded Manchuria, and isolated it >from
China's power and influence. Stalin hurriedly sent thousands of troops to
the Far East, and economic conditions in Vladivostock deteriorated
greatly. The city's large Asian population was purged and its Korans and
Chinese disappeared or were deported. Whatever private enterprise may have
existed in earlier years in the city was eliminated.

If Ms. Markel's cousin was free to leave to visit his family in Kiev
for ten days, during his six years in Vladivostock it can be assumed that
he had not been banished there for some offense against the Stalinist
regime.

There was a University in the city where Lazor could have taught and
done research, but he could also have been employed in a governmental
capacity, or as a clerk or manager with the Trans-Siberian Railroad which
had its terminus in Vladivostock. Perhaps he was a border guard or
perhaps he arranged for the transfer and assignments of the many thousands
of political and criminal prisoners who had been transported to
Vladivostock to be sent transit camps and >from these to labor and die in
the gold fields of Kolyma of Magadan. For all I know, for some suddenly
concocted "counter-revolutionary" offense, Lazor himself could have ended
up in some unmarked mass grave in those same gold fields!

I hope I have not been unduly discouraging and that other Jewishgenners
will have more optimistic view of Ms. Markel's probability in finding
information about her cousin.
