Re: Ukraine to Argentina 1890 #ukraine

Dear David and everyone,

If you're looking into the South Jersey Baron de Hirsch colonies, I would
recommend a book called Immigrants to Freedom: Jewish Communities in Rural
New Jersey Since 1882, by Joseph Brandes (University of Pennsylvania Press:
1971). The NJ colonies were much different than the Argentina ones, though,
by what I know.

My great-grandparents, Benjamin and Basha BRUCHANSKY, came >from Priluki,
near Kiev, to Carmel, New Jersey, in 1904. They were later joined by
cousins >from the DOLGIN family, >from the same general area of the Ukraine.

I am still trying to find out what became of my great-great-grandfather,
Israel or Ilka BRUCHANSKY, who emigrated with them and disappeared sometime
between 1904 and 1910. And I'm still searching for the grave of my
great-grandfather, Benjamin, who committed suicide in 1916 in Philadelphia.

PENZUR #ukraine

DGittel863@...
 

Dear Genners:
I am searching for my maternal grandmother's family, PENZUR,
who came >from a town near Ekatrinoslav to Philadelphia in or around 1905.
I think they travelled through Liverpool, but I'm not sure. I know all of
the current Philadelphia PENZURS who are cousins. Does anyone have any
information about other PENZURS >from the Ukraine. Also, the name of the
town, translated into English, was "Little hands that reach out and grab
things." Does anyone have any idea what the Russian or Ukrainian name was?
I'd appreciate any inforamtion. Also searching AXELROD, BOOKBINDER, AND
LIPSKY, >from Belarus or Ukraine.

Thank you.

There is another good book containing both the general information on
Jewish immigration to Argentina and some information on the colonies --
"Argentina and the Jews: A History of Jewish Immigration", by Haim Avni,
ISBN 0-8173-0554-8. Yet another one (that I have not read yet but it's
the next on my list) is "The Jewish Gauchos of the Pampas", by Alberto
Gerchunoff, ISBN 0-8263-1767-7. I ordered both >from bn.com.

Hello,

On the topic of the JCA and Baron Hirsch's agricultural settlements,
there is a book that is quite detailed regarding the Jewish Agricultural
Settlements of Southern New Jersey at the turn of the century, the sister
communities of the Argenitine settlements. The book is called "Jewish
Agricultural Colonies in New Jersey 1882-1920" by Ellen Eisenberg
(ISBN 0-8156-2663-0). My great grandparents, Nathan and Celia Rigberg,
settled in one of these, Woodbine NJ.

Kadesh or Kadeshis-last name or adjective? #rabbinic

Ellen McCullough <ellenmc@...>
 

Hello:

I believe I had asked this question to the JewishGen list several
years ago, before the RavSig existed. My great-great-great-
grandfather was Rabbi Nachum BLOOM, 1820-2/1/1870, Kaunus,
Lithuania. I have an old picture of his tombstone, >from around
1910, in which his name has been translated as Rabbi Nachum
Kadeshis (or Kadesh), etc., son of Rabbi Isaiah BLOOM.

What does the word Kadeshis mean, and why does it appear after his
given name as if it were a last name, when his father is listed as
BLOOM? I know for a fact that the family name is in fact BLOOM.

I would appreciate any help with this.
Thank you,

Ellen McCullough
