Orhei (Orgeyev), Moldova yizkor book completed #general

Terry Lasky <talasky@...>
 

I am happy to announce that the Orhei, Moldova yizkor book is now
complete and online. There is an Insert at the beginning of the book
which includes all surnames >from the book and where they can be found.
Hopefully this will help you in locating family members if you don't
have time to read the whole book.

I would like to thank everyone who helped both financially and by
volunteering to make this all possible - there are too many people to
name all of them. However, I would like to especially thank three
people who I believe deserve special recognition. First, Lance
Ackerfeld who has put all of this information online (over 200 pages,
more than 125 chapters and 250 pictures). Lance is one of the Jewishgen
volunteers who works behind the scenes and rarely gets any recognition -
and he deserves plenty. Secondly, Jerrold Landau who did a large
portion of the Hebrew translation. An excellent translator who can
always be counted on to do a superb job - couldn't have done it without
him. And finally, Marsha Kayser who translated most of the Yiddish and
some of the Hebrew. She volunteered numerous hours and money to this
effort and kept me going when I was ready to give up. She was truly my
saviour.

Does anybody know whether R. Baruch haLevi EPSTEIN had any siblings
or children, and where one can find genealogical information about
them? I did, of course, look at Mekor Baruch.

Hi,

My grtgrtgrandfather, Harris Woolf migrated to London >from Poland
("Russia,
Poland") according to the censuses in about the late 1860's. According to
the
censuses, he became a naturalized British subject. Does anyone know how I
might find (or try to find) any records of his naturalization?
The UK National Archive in Kew, SW London. I have seen my own
greatgrandfather's application there >from 1871.

See "Naturalisation and Citizenship: Grants of British Nationality" Section
http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/catalogue/RdLeaflet.asp?sLeafletID=242

See Section 6 "Aliens and Naturalisation" of "Anglo-Jewish History"
http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/catalogue/RdLeaflet.asp?sLeafletID=249&j=1

I might be wrong but I believe that the only way of viewing the application
form is going to the National Archive in Kew. When I went there some years
ago, it took about 30 minutes to order the form having found the details of
the application listed in the register.

According to that Belgian website written in French,
http://www.lalibre.be/article.phtml?id=10&subid=91&art_id=298363
it seems that only historians will have access to these archives.
Last 16 May 2006, eleven countries that are interested in research
had to sign an agreement according to which they will receive a
computerized copy of these archives, so that they can settle the
protection of the data according to their own national laws. The last
signature occurred last 26 July 2006.

In reality, there are no traces left concerning the extermination
itself, which mean no trace of all the people who were sent directly
to the gas chambers immediately after their arrival, without even
entering the camps (without forgetting the numerous persons who died
in the trains during the trip) but these archives concern only the
persons who were sent to work.

information about my greatgrandparents on familysearch.org today.
It's still lacking, but I've been so fortunate in finding other
family information that I'm going to post this and give it a try.

My great grandfather Abraham RICHTER was born in Austria. My father
believes he was >from Vienna. His father's name was Beril and his
mother's name was Male GOTTESMAN. He married Sadie WILDER in NYC on
February 7, 1905. Sadie was also born in Austria, but the site
doesn't say what city or town and nobody in my family seems to know.
She had a sister Rose and another sister Tillie. Her father's name is
listed as Schulym Gezel, and her mother's name is listed
as Maly Bar..uhut.>

This is the perennial problem: Austria-Galicia [pre WW1] vs
Austria-Austria proper. I am absolutely certain the family came from
Galicia but Abraham RICHTER may indeed have been born in Vienna, as
many Galicians emigrated to this great metropolis.

It would have been useful if, at all possible, we had been given a
few more facts on this RICHTER family thought to be >from Vienna - ie
did Abraham's parents also go to the USA or did they also possibly
die in Vienna? How old was Abraham? I have guessed his dob >from the
given facts.

I have mentioned this before - the Vienna records are excellent and
the vital records of the Isr. Kultusgemeinde are now available from
the LDS - if Abraham was born in Vienna [say 1880?] his birth will be
clearly registered. If his parents died there - we should be able to
find their grave: This is one possibility - with a possible brother:

Zentralfriedhof Gate 1 19 7 59

RICHTER Bernhard aged 62 dob buried on 23.05.1892
RICHTER Deborah aged 70 buried on 06.06.1899
RICHTER Oswald aged 59 buried on 12.11.1918

BTW there were also many Galician GOTTESMAN living in Vienna. I have
studied a few of them. re BARE ..HUT this could be BARENHAUT or
BARENHUT see: http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/surnames/krakow.htm

And if you search for BARENHUT + Galicia on jri-pl you get a real
bonanza of records. And here is the jewel in the crown:

WILDER Salomon - Getzel 1894 M 78 999 Krakow Hersch - Leib Scheindel
SCHLOSSER
BERNHUT Malka 1894 M 78 999 Krakow Nathan Róza czyli Reizla SZWARTZ


But how could their daughter marry in 1905?

We apparently have gone a generation or two further back to Kracow
-but something is wrong with the data/dates!
