Gubernia #general

Perets Mett <p.mett@...>
 

Stan Goodman wrote:

The term "gubernia" is Russian. At any time when a region is
*legitimately* described as a gubernia, it must have been
governed by pre-revolution Russia. The parallel Polish term
is "wojewodztwo", and this is the term used wherever Poland
was sovereign after WWI.

The word gubernya was used in Yiddish, and continued to be used after
WWI.

Jews in Poland in the inter-war years used the word gubernya to mean
province (wojewodztwo)

Gorodnya Jewish Kagal 1834 #belarus

Kenneth Ryesky <khresq@...>
 

Mike asks, "Am I correct in assuming that Kagal means community? What lanuguage
in Kagal?"

"Kahal" is Hebrew for Community. The Russian language, having no equivalent of
what we know as the sound of the letter "H", uses the sound of the letter "G".

Looking for SHAW, formerly MUIT, in Philadelphia #general

krippens@...
 

The family name in Prussian Poland was MUIT or MUT. A brother who
lived in Philadelphia took the surname SHAW. I would love to find
the descendants of this man.

Tsymety Pytel -- Jewish? #general

Mitchell Balish <rebeccabalish@...>
 

A while back I received a family tree >from a distant cousin of mine
who had researched our common ancestry. He apparently gleaned this
information >from Polish records, but I don't have a sense of the
extent to which he anglicized the spellings. I think it may have
been considerable, as among the surnames are "Milstein" and "Kalish."

In any event, according to this material, one of my ggg-grandmothers,
born in Poland in 1828, was named Tsymety Pytel. I may not be an
expert, but this doesn't strike me as a Jewish name (whatever that
means). Has anyone come across Pytel as a Jewish name? And does
anyone have any idea what Tsymety might really be? Thanks.

Success using All UK Database #unitedkingdom

roberta solit <rsolit1@...>
 

Many thanks to the members of JGS of GB for their contribution of the All
UK Database. For many years I've been searching for the Austria family from
London and
today found an ancestor. Moses Austria died in 1912 and is buried at the
Edmonton Federation Cemetery in London. Is there anyone planning on
visiting this cemetery who would be willing to photograph his stone? Will
reimburse for time and expenses.
Thanks,

STREMER surname, Schattau / Satov #general

June <stremj@...>
 

My family migrated to the United States in the 1880's. They came >from a
small village in Austria called Schattau. The village was annexed by
the Czech Republic after world War II and is now named Satov.
I should like to know if anyone is familiar with this village. Was
there a significant Jewish presence in the village. Was there a
synagogue and a Jewish cemetery?
Can anyone direct me to links and sources for the Austrian Sudetenlands?

I seem to be having difficulties locating sites for contemporary maps

I'm not looking for Biblical sites nor topographical -- just simple maps
where I might locate a kibbutz or a city, etc. etc. Can you advise?
To which Stan Goodman replied:
The best advice is to remember that, even in the early 21st century, the
Internet is not the best source for everything; the best maps are still
printed on paper, and they are readily available, certainly in the US, and
certainly for Israel. They are also far easier to use than online maps.
I heartily concur with Stan that paper maps are generally easier to use and
more complete than online maps. I use something like MapQuest to search
for and give a general location of a site, particularly one that may be
difficult to find on a detailed map. I then locate it on the paper map to
seek out additional information.

Carol is very fortunate to live within the area served by one of the
largest and most active JGSs, the JGS of Palm Beach County. I am sure that
if she brought her question to one their monthly meetings, several people
would be glad to help her. I am the Membership Chair of that JGS and I
have 2 maps of Israel that show Erez. I would be glad to lend them to her.
In addition to Stan's suggestions, I suggest Carol could check the atlases
at some of the fine libraries in the area.
