There was a recent series of postings regarding the S55 form which I believe

Given that this is an international newsgroup/discussion group it makes a
lot of sense to know where they are posting from, so that potential posters
can make a judgement as to what information/sources/buildings the poster is
likely to have access to.

Of course, if the poster chooses not to reveal that information that is
clearly up to them (and the Moderators).

But I would add that every time someone makes a request for some information
about a relative or an ancestor, they are giving up something personal.

I can't see how this sort of discussion group can work without providing the
kind of information that the poster seems to object to revealing.

I am also concerned about my own personal privacy, but clearly by taking
part in this newsgroup I have given away a little of that.

After all, if I make a comment on someone else's posting regarding the
situation in the US, I would have thought that it was relevant that I live
in England, if nothing else.

Dear Yehudah;

I'll give you several good reasons.

The first is that, depending upon the question, the answer may be
geographical based. For example, it would be pointless to refer someone to a
film in the FHC catalog if they live in Israel, since there are no FHC's in
Israel. OTOH, if someone is in the USA and the answer is to get a film from
the FHC, knowing their location enables the one answering to list the
closest FHC and the hours. If someone lives in or near NYC, an answer
might send them to the Municipal Archives or NARA or 42nd St. Library, none
of which would be good answers if they lived in Iowa.

Second, I have contacted off-list a couple of people whose postings indicated
a similar research interest to mine, and who lived nearby. I have since
become good friends with a person I met in this manner, and we are able to
help one another with our research. There would have been no way to identify
that he lives close by unless his postings indicated where he lived. Of
course, when I contacted him by email, he always had the choice to not get
together. But why not make friendships based on a common interest?

Lastly, why not list the city-state one is from? You can't think of any
reason to do so; I can't think of any reason not to do so. Among other
things, it is both courteous and required (but not enforced) by the rules
and regulations of JewishGen.

Re the discussion about signing postings - I think it is important to do so,
for various reasons. Sometimes it is relevant to the enquiry. How many times
do we see postings about censuses or naturalisations, and it turns out that
we are talking about American documents, which are different >from British
(for instance)? There is also an element of where does that person's home
community fit into the pattern of Jewish history and geography, which can
have a bearing on the enquiry. It gives us a better feel for the spread of
the JewishGen community when we see if people live in New York or Tel Aviv
or Sydney or wherever. And spare a thought for those of us who live in small
or smallish or outlying Jewish communities, for whom JewishGen can sometimes
seem excessively America-centric!!

Abraham DANIEL Family of Detroit #general

Linda Shefler <linsilv@...>
 

I think I might have stumbled upon something that might just unlock my
SNOPARSKY family mystery.

I recently discovered a piece of paper with a note regarding a Pola
SZNAPARSKI who arrived at the Port of Quebec in Sept 1922. She was born in
*Pavalatsch* about 1905 and her destination was her brother Abe DANIEL who
lived at 2525 Hastings St. in Detroit.
In 1925 I found Borich SCHNAPORSKI who was born about 1906 in *Pavalich*
crossing the border >from Canada to visit someone in Detroit.

According to the WWI registration I have Abe DANIEL born 1891 in *Pavoltz,
Kiev* residing at 465 Hastings St. in Detroit.
It indicates that he was the sole supporter of his family in Russia.
The 1930 Census indicates that Abraham DANIEL immigrated in 1913; was
proprietor of a fish market; was 39 years old and married to Sophia. They
had a daughter Sylvia who was born in 1923. Abraham's mother Anna, a widow
age 63 also lived with them. It looks like she immigrated in 1927.
According to the SS records, Abraham died in 1980 in Detroit.

Does anyone know or know of the family of Abraham, Sophia and Sylvia DANIEL
of Detroit? Any information would be most appreciated!

As usual, thank you all for your time and for all of the wonderful support,
advice and suggestions.

(No subject) #lithuania

Altersolomon@...
 

Having been surprised by my mothers and grandmothers Hebrew /Yiddish
names I am paying more attention to other members of my family. Could any
litvaksigger help me understand the wording on my grandfathers headstone.
It reads in Hebrew:
"Hechaver Avraham Note (spelled nun tet ayin) benreb Itamar".

1) What would the word Hechaver refer to?

2) Would I be right to assume that Note is yiddish for Nathan and if so
shouldn't the Hebrew word Natan have appeared before Note?

3) Was Itamar in common useage in the 19 Century before Eliezer Ben
Yehuda's son popularized the name by using it as part of his pen name?

Many thanks

World War I expulsion from Siauliai #lithuania

Assaf Urieli <assaf@...>
 

Hi all,

I'm a beginner "geneologist", trying to reconstruct some of my family
history, and currently concentrating on the first world war. My maternal
grandmother, Miriam Iosselovich (Josselowitz or Yoselevich) was born in
Siauliai (Shavl or Shavli) in 1910. She remembered a period in her life
when her father, Avraham Iosef, was gone for a few years - when he
returned he was so changed she couldn't recognise him. I'm guessing this
corresponded to World War I, which she remembered as a period of
incredible hunger and food shortages as well.

I read Anatolij Chayesh's fascinating article on "The Expulsion of the
Jews >from Lithuania in the Spring of 1915"
(http://www.jewishgen.org/Litvak/HTML/OnlineJournals/expulsion.htm).

from what I can gather in this article, the Germans reached Shavl on
April 17th 1915. The Russians burned the city down before leaving it.
The Russians where able to recapture Shavl on April 28th. The Jews were
expelled as potential German spies >from the entire Russian-controlled
part of the Kaunus region on about the 4-8th of May. By mid to late-July
1915, the Germans had re-captured Shavl, and stayed till 1920 or so.

Apparently, a total of 150,000 Jews were expelled to districts in
eastern Ukraine.

In another article on Shavl, it claims: "On May 7, 1915 One-hundred and
eighty Jews were reported abducted by the Germans in Shavel. Two
daughters of the government rabbi (presumably Rabbi Aharon Leib Heller)
were taken as hostages by the Germans, because he refused to act as
Mayor." (http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/shavli/shavli2.html)
However, May 7th seems to correspond to a period when Siauliai was under
Russian control!

I'm trying to guess if my grandmother's family would have been exiled,
and if so, where. I don't believe my grandmother or her family ever
spent time in eastern Ukraine. The places she mentioned are Kovno
(Kaunas), Vilna and Shavl. Maybe her family (or at least her mother and
siblings) left to live in Vilna during the war.

So, my questions are:
What was the Jewish population/total population of Shavl at the outbreak
of World War I?
On what exact date where the Jews of Shavl expelled?
How and by whom was the expulsion organised?
What is the calendar of German/Russian control of Shavl during the first
world war?
Did any Jews remain in Shavl after the expulsion?
Did all of the expelled Jews go straight to the Ukraine, or would some
have had to opportunity to relocate to Vilna?
Did the expelled Jews lose all of their property? Was there any way for
the Jews to protect their property during the war period?
Is it likely that only the head of the family would have been expelled?
If not, what other reason could account for him "missing" during the war
years? What was the age of Jews conscripted into the Russian army?
When did the expelled Jews return?
Were they officially allowed back into Independent Lithuania?
How were they treated on their return? Did they have to start life again
from scratch?
I realise these are difficult questions to answer, but maybe somebody
else has done some research into the same period!

Best regards,
Assaf Urieli
