I can! My dearest friend and neighbor, who is British, changes the 'ah' sound to
'ar' and vice versa. Thus, her daughter Tehila is 'Tehiler', and Arthur is
'Authah'.

I once offered to help her look up some addresses online, when she was addressing
invitations to her son's Bar Mitzva. She dutifully wrote down the names she wished
me to hunt. She actually spelled Arthur, 'Authah'. I had to pause to figure that
one out, Hilary, just as you are doing, now.

KARPILOFF must have been the original.

Dear genners. I have made progress with the help of a friend and genealogist, we
now know the cemetery Mt Hebron in Queens N.Y where Miriam Uscier of Buczacz and
New York my husbands grandmother is buried. I still haven't located Rachella
GLATZER Miriams' daughter. She married sometime after 1913 when she was 16 plus
and lived in the Bronx, New York, I have no idea of her marriage name. If anyone
has a clue it would be greatly appreciated.

Czar's Army & Czarina's Guard Records? #general

Claire Sztern <claire.sztern@...>
 

Hello !

I'm wondering if a register of the Jews who were in the Czar's army exists, and if
yes where I could find it.

I'm looking for my great grandfather Herszek (or Hersh) HANDKAN. He would most
probably be born in Garwolin (near Lublin) or Warsaw and was a Cohen. According to
his children and grandchildren, he had many medals and really distinguished
himself (moreover he was very tall), which made him enter the Czarina's guard. He
was in the army for 15 years, so since he had probably stopped when he married my
great grand mother Zlata WODOWSKA in 1892, he served under Alexander II and
Alexander III(and the czarina would be Marya Fedorovna).

After leaving he became a station master in Garwolin. Much later, when already he
had children, he was attacked by Cossacks, but their chief told them to leave him
alone. It is not clear if they knew each other, or if the chief was impressed by
his medals. He died in July 1939 in Garwolin.

Does anyone know at what age the people started the army at that time?
It would help me situate his birth year.

His sixth child Hanoch, born around 1914, was in the Polish army during WW2 and
died in 1939. I would be interested in anything about that too.

KOPALOFF vs. KARPILOFF #general

Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

Dear group,
My greatgrandfather was Meyer LAPIDUS. According to family stories, he had a
brother named Nachum KARPILOFF.

I was contacted by someone in England whose father was a LAPIDUS. As we chatted,
it turned out he had michpocha KOPALOFF.

We didn't find an immediate link, but as you can surmise, I'm convinced that the
dual surnames is more than coincidence -- but that's not my question.

Taking into consideration the American and British accents, can anyone hypothesize
which KARPILOFF / KOPALOFF surname "begat" the other? Or the origin of the name?
Both families are >from the Ukraine - Mariupol area.

Naturalizations Records at Kew - Assistance #general

Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

Dear fellow researchers,
"Nu, What's Nu" ezine recently mentioned that the London Gazette has been
digitized and put online, for 1900 - 1979. They published legal notices,
including naturalizations. The issues are fully text-searchable.

I found two men who may be relatives, and would like to get copies of their
naturalization papers.

According to the JewishGenInfoFile (yes, some of us do check them before
posting!), those records are at the Public Records Office at Kew. Also according
to the InfoFile, the Office doesn't do requests by mail; you must go there.

If anyone's planning to go there sometime soon, and might have a little bit of
time, could you check these two records for me? I have the exact dates of
naturalization (in 1926 and 1932) and the surname is rare, so the search shouldn't
be difficult.

I will of course pay for out-of-pocket expenses, and/or offer reciprocal research.

PS - if there's a way for me to do this myself, I'd be glad to know the procedure
--. If you want to check the Gazette, the link is:

Shalom!

I would like to know how to do to look for a death record and/or a burial in

Any information would be great!

Visit to Sejny #general

Dorfleiv@...
 

I am hoping to visit South Western Lithuania this June and would like to cross
the border to spend 1 or 2 days in Sejny. If you have had recent experience of
the Ogrodniki border crossing recently, I would like to know if border delays are
still a problem.

I am also looking for a researcher/translator who could help me while there.
Many thanks.

Kamaments Podolskiy #general

Mountain Club Landlord <mclub_apts@...>
 

Hello. I'd like to speak with anyone who has recently (within the past 5 yrs) been
to Kamaments Podolskiy nr Kiev, Ukraine on a ancestry research trip.

I've been in contact with the archives and am saddened that so many records have
been lost in the fire and that others will never be made available to the public
again.

I am interested to know if those who have been to kamaments have taken photos of
whatever jewish cemetaries (& all remaining tombstones) exist. I am trying to
locate my great great great great (4 greats) grandparents who came >from kamaments
and any of their siblings. The surnames involved are SIROTA/SEROTA and Trontz.
Thank you for your help - I already looked through all available databases on
jewishgen.
