People interested in Gomel should check this website:
http://gomel.lk.net/cybergomel.html

It is a US site for people >from Gomel. There are many interesting facts and
pictures, including a picture of the former great synagogue (the same one
that is available as a jpeg view >from Avotaynu). Although the site is not
specifically Jewish, many of the people listed are Jewish, including many in
Israel. I found a name that is close enough to mine that we are doing some
further checking.

Re: Birth Records from Holland #general

The e-mail address of the Municipal Archives of Amsterdam
is: gaasecr@...

Their Internet address is: http://www.gemeentearchief.amsterdam.nl

Though most of the staff is fluent in English, the Internet site is
mostly in Dutch.

You are welcome to call on me to translate sentences or paragraphs -
Please, not whole pages!

Henny

Try the Dutch Jewish Genealogy Society <nljewgen.org>, I Think. Slow, but
helpful. The Amsterdam archives are wonderful, too, but so far as I know
they do not have an e-mail address.

Can anyone advise on obtaining birth records >from Holland circa 1805?
I have written to the State Archives but have had no reply.

GUTMAN (GUTMANOVICH) #general

AIChernoff@...
 

I am searching for a connection between the family Gutman (or Gutmanovich)
and the poet Shaul Tchernichovsky. The latter's parents were Tuviya Ben
Dov Gutman and his mother was Bilha Bat Shaul Karp. Why he adopted the
name Tchernichovsky is unknown to me. Tchernichovsky was born in
Mikhailovka just near the border of Crimea in 1875 and his parents came
from Mikhailovka and Kherson, respectively. If there are connections to
other Gutmans or Guttmans, I would be interested in hearing.
Thank you
