About a month ago we found my husband's great grandparents' marriage
registration on the new material that was posted January 2004. Naftali Licht
and Alta Sura Szperber (we didn't know the maiden name) were married in 1874
in Warsaw.

Last week we got a copy of the documents and two days ago the
translation >from Russian. We now have the names of their parents and even
the maiden names of my husband's great great grandmothers. Last night on
JRI-Poland we found information on the families of one of the great great
grandmothers including the name of her parents and her grandfather on her
mother's side - but no family names. Maybe on the original document we might
find something, but that was the time when people didn't use family names in
Poland.

It is through the maiden family names of the female members of the family
that we were able to make the break-through. Maybe some day the male side
will catch up.

For the information of those who haven't seen these documents, the marriage
registration >from 1874 contains information on the number of the house and
professions.

Between JRI-Poland ordering system and the microfilms at the Museum of the
Diaspora we will start filling out that limb of the tree all the way back to
about 1800 in Warsaw. Unbelieveable, and I will thank Stanley and staff
personally at the conference this July in Jerusalem.

Shalom and see you in Jerusalem!

Kruszyna -- a town near Radomsko and Plawno #poland

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

I have recently learned that all of my KIFER family originated in the little
town of Kruszyna, near Radomsko and Plawno.

I have learned also that early 1800s Kruszyna records are kept with the
Mstow BMD records (rather than Plawno, as I expected).

I would enjoy hearing >from anyone with roots in (or information about)
Kruszyna.

1897 Russian Census for Grodno Gubernia -- Repost #poland

Bialystoker
 

In case some of you did not see this posting that was made in
mid-January, I am repeating it once again. Please contact me if
you have any interest.

Mark Halpern
BIALYGen Coordinator
=================================

This is real exciting. This information may be a real find for
some of you who thought you would never find a trace of your
Bialystok area ancestors. Please read on.

In mid January, David Fox, Belarus SIG Coordinator, announced the
extraction and transliteration of the existing returns of the
1897 All Russian Census for Grodno Gubernia. These existing
returns are only fragments of the entire Grodno Gubernia census.

The webpage explaining this acquisition can be found at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Belarus/1897_russian_census_grodno_guber
nia.htm. (this URL may be on two lines, so please make sure to
copy the entire URL) On this webpage, there are links to a list
of 1,800 unique surnames included in this database and over 700
unique shtetls/towns found in this database.

The number one objective of BIALYGen is to gain access to Jewish
records in the National Historical Archives of Belarus in Grodno.
As a result of the gracious cooperation of the Belarus SIG and
David Fox, we have our first bit of data >from the Grodno
Archives. Thank you, Belarus SIG!!

Of the total available data, about 10% is for towns in the
BIALYGen area of Bialystok, Bielsk, and Sokolka Uyezds
(districts). The BIALYGen towns included in this collection are:

Belany (in Belarus today, but in Sokolka Uyezd in 1897)
Bielastok (Bialystok)
Bielsk (Bielsk Podlaski)
Botski (Bocki)
Goniodze (Goniadz)
Kaleichytsy(country)
Knarozy
Koily (Kojly)
Lubin-Kastselny (Lubin Koscielny)
Melnik (Mielnik)
Novakorni (Nowy Kornin)
Orlya (Orla)
Siemyatsichy (Siemiatycze)
Tsekhanavets (Ciechanowiec)

There are 776 unique surname spellings for people enumerated in
the census for towns in the BIALYGen area. I will send out a few
messages to this forum with lists of these names. I suggest that
you save these BIALYGen area surname lists. (These name lists can
be found by searching The JewishGen SIG Lists message Archives at
http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~sigspop,
searching for "BialyGen surnames.")

Although you can search the Belarus SIG 1897 names list, that
list contains 1800 names for all of Grodno Gubernia. Only these 776
surnames in my messages are for people living in the BIALYGen area in
1897.

As David Fox mentioned, funding of these extractions has not been
completed. All the beneficiaries of this data need to help so
that Belarus SIG and BIALYGen can continue to sponsor work at the
Grodno Archives. I encourage all BIALYGen members to make a
contribution to "Grodno Archives Research Projects, " which can
be done through the BIALYGen JewishGen-erosity page at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/Bialystokrrg.html.

These funds will be transferred to Belarus SIG to pay for the
BIALYGen town extractions. If contributions are greater than the
cost, those surplus funds will be dedicated to future Grodno
Archives projects.

What do your receive for your contribution? Once funded, this
data will be submitted to JewishGen for inclusion in the All
Belarus and All Poland databases. Also, if a researcher
contributes $36 to BIALYGen Grodno Archives Research Projects,
that person can submit their surnames of interest (up to 4
surnames) and we will search ONLY the BIALYGen area returns and
provide full extracts to you.

Please use the Surnames on the lists which will be posted to this
forum, make your contribution, and then notify me of your
contribution and the surnames of interest to you.

Dear Pierre,
I am sure you have at home the "Tables d'Etat-Civil de la Communauté Juive
de Metz" by Pierre-André Meyer.
If you have a look at the end p.452 and 453 in my edition, it is said that
ENSHEIM and BRISAC are equivalent names which are used ad libitum by the
same people. So your two Joseph are the same guy !
Note that the village of Einsisheim is 20 km SW of Neuf-Brisach, which is
not so far.

Researching Falitz, Yumolofsky, Ostroff, Ginsberg, Berger, Kuritsky, Gitlitz,
Kretschmer, Reichel, Revelsky (Revel), Gallen--

I have been tracing my ancestors and am looking for some
help/information/direction:

1) Abraham FALITZ m. Sima YUMOLOFSKY, births/deaths unknown and Abraham's
brother, Jacob Falitz m. Molly (Malvina) OSTROFF (also births/deaths
unknown).
All I believe >from Zitomir (Zhitomir Chitoma), Ukraine, Russia, near Minsk?
Abraham's 3 sons all emigrated to the USA; 2 of Jacob's children emigrated
to the USA 1908 & 1914 (my paternal GM was one). I believe I have all the
descendents, I am now trying to research further back to Abraham and Jacob's
parents; I would appreciate any direction as to where I can find further
information on Zitomir: records/lists, etc.

2) Paternal GF: Samuel GINSBERG m. Sadie BERGER, both remained in Russia;
children Benjamin (Barnet- Barney) Ginsberg, b. 1882 emigrated to USA, lived
in Bronx, NY, m. Rose Falitz, brother
Aaron Joe Ginsberg lived in Amherst, MA, sister
Sonia Ginsberg m Herman Rogovoy (Rogovoj) in Russia or Hungary, lived in
Hungary, emigrated with 5 children in 1920/21 (Nahan, Ethel, Josef, Jakab,
Leah);
Another brother Alexander (Mike) Ginsberg, lived in Bronx, had 6 children,
Joe, Sol, Rosie, Ann, + 2 unknown.
A sister Bertha Ginsberg, m. Gelman.
I am trying to trace descendents of Alexander & Bertha Ginsberg, Ethel

Kretschmer), Julius Gitlitz (m Lena), Harry Kuritsky (name changed to Harry
Curn), m
Selma Revelsky. I have descendents, am looking for further information on
Liba
Reichel and Israel Kuritsky, farmer. We think the ancestors may have come
from Danolovitz, Poland.
4) Maternal GM: Selma Revel, daughter of Julius Revelsky b. 1874-75 in,
possibly in England or Russia- lived in England until 1890, emigrated to
USA.
Julius m. Yetta Gallen, b 1870 , possibly in Korbin, Belarusse (? Germany) ,

Search for family KRASNAPOLSKI (connected to Sack and Kupchik) #general

Daniel Gee <DanielGee@...>
 

Dear Genners,
I am trying to find my 'KRASNAPOLSKI' family - can you help?
My gggrandmother Clara Kupchick was married to a Mr Krasnapolski.
They wed in about 1890/1 in a village north east of Odessa.
Their daughters were Sophie & Tilly, but he was killed by robbers in 1886.
There is a Krasnopol in Poland, so his family may have come >from there.
Clara remarried, and the first 2 daughters took their stepfather's surname.
The family, called Isowitzsky (later Isow), then travelled to London in
1908.
Mr Krasnapolski's name only just came to light, after a decade of searching.
So I now have a surname, but nothing more. Can you help?
Do any of the above snippets of information ring any bells with you?
If so please get in touch!
Regards
Daniel Gleek in London

Also searching for information on Hyman and Rebecca SACK.
Hyman came >from Russia to London via Cape Town in the early 1900s.
The SACK children were Reuben, Jessie (married Alf) and Lily (married
David).
Do you remember any siblings called Reubem, Jessie & Lily Sack?
The grandchildren (who would now be aged around 60-70) were called
Nina, Norma and Barbara, but their surname wouldn't be SACK
and they may not be siblings, but cousins. Please help!!

As he wrote, this site is an excellent research resource for queries about

Yet the site's name is misleading, as this amazingly comprehensive site
also covers Queens and Long Island, going right back to the original Dutch
settlers. (It often is forgotten that the New York City boroughs of Queens and
Brooklyn are contiguous and, along with Nassau and Suffolk counties, these four
counties all make up that land mass known as "Long Island." The political
distinctions among these jurisdictions only are about a century old.)
