I have searched Family Finder for them and some other

The name could obviously be spelled ZAVINSKY, ZAWINSKY,

If we had more information on the General perhaps we

Schelly,

Every Polish child probably have heard about General Jozef Sowinski, a
patriotic Polish general with the wooden leg. Famous Polish poet Juliusz
Slowacki have written poem "W okopach Woli" (In the trenches of Wola). Wola
is Warsaw suburb and trenches of Wola refer to Polish National November
(1831) Uprising (Powstanie Listopadowe) against the Russians occupier.

Artillery Colonel (later General) Jozef Sowinski has lost his leg in the
Battle of Borodino (1812) near Moscow, the battle of Grand Armee of the
Emperor Napoleon I against the Russian Imperial Army of Alexander I (under
commander-in-chief Mikhail I. Kutuzow).

This all that I remember >from the school days. Dates are obviously matching
1777 and the Napoleonic wars. I have located English translation of the
Julius Slowacki poem about Jozef Sowinski fight in the trenches. It probably
too long for the reproduction. Please refer to the site at:

Good luck with Sowinski roots.

EIDB missing manifest - lookup help #general

Ron Goldman
 

According to EIDB, my gf Isaac (transcribed by EIDB as Frank) SANDOGORSKI
arrived on the Patricia on Feb. 21, 1904, having left >from Cuxhaven,
Hamburg. He's listed on page 61, line 0003 of the text manifest, but the
original (roll T715-0431) is among the many missing manifests on the
Calzareth/Tobias list.

Will anyone doing manifest lookups at NARA be willing to access this page
for me and get the answers gf gave to 2 questions?

1. Ever in the US before?
2. To whom going in the US and the address?

I'm sure that this trip was not gf's first/original arrival, but all
efforts to find him earlier have been frustratingly unsuccessful. He
*was* here in 1903, at which time he appeared in Court to file his
Declaration of Intent, and he claimed, at that time, to have arrived in
1899.

If this is true, he had to have come through the Barge Office, Ellis
Island being closed between 6/13/1897 and 12/17/1900 due to the fire on the
former date. Are Barge Office records for that period included in
EIDB?

Goldman's grandfather privately to him. Information about records during
the Barge Office period is of general interest and will be considered for

Mogilev to Baku (Azerbaijan) 1903 #general

Schelly Dardashti <dardasht@...>
 

We have a TALALAY family (born in Mogilev) in Baku from
the early years of 1900s, according to HIAS records in
Philadelphia. I could never figure out why their last
place of residence was Baku.

Recently I came across an article on Azerbaijan and
found one reason, which might help other researchers
also looking for lost branches.

The story goes that in 1903, oil was discovered in
Baku, Azerbaijan, and thousands of impoverished Jews
from all over Russia went down to Baku to try and make
their fortunes in "black gold."
I don't know if our branch did so.

All the sons (and the father visited them, returning to
Russia) emigrated to Philadelphia, beginning in 1907,
and changed their name to FEINSTEIN.
I have not yet been able to locate our FEINSTEIN
TALALAY descendents in the Philadelphia area.

I posted on this Philadelphia connection previously in
connection with the decimating Spanish flu epidemic
that hit Philadelphia and the Northeast US (and more)
very hard, and that many families which cannot be
located might have perished in the epidemic.

The Baku connection seems interesting, and might be one
reason why missing branches are not where we expect
them to be.

Good luck,

Shabtai is a Hebrew name, generally more popular in Sephardi communities.
Shabbetai Zvi (1626-1676) was an important figure in Judaism down to the
19th century. He claimed to be the Messiah and at one time had a huge
following. This dropped off when he succumbed to Turkish pressure and
converted to Islam, but his message was hotly debated among Jewish rabbis
and scholars in Europe down to the 19th century. It is likely that anyone
with that name is descended >from someone somewhere whose father was inspired
by the false Messiah. The name itself is of Babylonian origin and means
"under the god Saturn"--most appropriate since the Hebrew Shabbat translates
as Saturday (Saturn's day)

A term of endearment for Shabetai is Schepsel or a form thereof; I think the
Zisel (which means "sweet one") may be a variant of Schepsel. It is most
definitelt an Ashkenazic name, and with that spelling of Eastern European
origin, perhaps Galicia (in German Zisel was rendered as Suessel or
Suesslein--and Scheppsel is the common form in Germany).

Agudat[h] Achim meaning "brotherhood" is a common name for a synagogue
congregation in the Americas in the 19th century. I think the majority by
that name were founded by immigrants >from Eastern Europe and the majority
were originally Orthodox communities--which does not necessarily mean that
its members or even officers were all staunchly religious in practie (e.g.
Sabbath observance, kosher, mikveh)
