I am looking for any descendants of Golda SITERMAN. There may be a spelling
variation. She was my husband's great grandmother, who was married to Izrul
CHERNOMAZ. They were >from Uman, Ukraine, or vicinity.
They had 4 children: Mordko (Max), Pesya, Sura and Hova. Would like to find
the descendants of Hova and Sura. We think they were killed in the war in
Ukraine.
Any information is much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

While researching something else, I came across the following website,

In reviewing the information, it becomes clear that most people in these

Slovenia 33%
Ukraine 18%
Yugoslavia 19.7%

The divisor is the population, but assuming that the average household size
is 2 (a conservative estimate) the actual number of phonelines per household
will be double this.

Re: Ben-Gurion University president #general

martha <martha@...>
 

I am trying to verify the claim (on an unreliable Belarus website)
that a president of B-G University some years ago was originally
from Lyakhovichi in Belarus.
According to this source, his family name was Tukachinsky (more
or less), but was changed to something shorter in Israel.

Does anybody in the group know about this man, or even where
one can find a reliable list of B-G U's past presidents?

S O Lanesville
Perhaps you are thinking of Yosef Tekoa? That is the only president
of BGU whose name is even close to what you have written. Yosef had
also been a golden-tongued Israeli ambassador to the UN, if I am not
in error.

Selma,

No, there are more ways to get access to free SSDI information. Type Social Security
Death Index into Google and up will come up several options. Even in the paid
subscription ones SSDI is free. Oddly enough all though they basically have the same
info, on occasion one can find a person who is not in one SSDI in another so try
others if you don't find your person the first time.

Also, if the person is not on the SSDI it is possible he/she did not have any
benefits passed to a family member ergo there would be no listing.

Hope this helps.

The only way to do a free search of SSDI is through Steve Morse's search
engine (which of course is terrific) that takes us to Genealogy.com. Does anyone
know how current SSDI is on this website? I'm searching for people who died
in the last 3 years and they do not seem to be on there. Thank you. Happy
holidays and Happy New Year! Selma
