Movement from Europe to Ukraine in Mid-1800's #general

Marilyn Siegel <jadzgran@...>
 

Hello All,
I have a bit of a puzzle I'd love solving, hopefully with your help.
My grandfather and his family came to the U.S. in 3 waves in the
early 1900's. They came >from Chmelnik, near Kiev, in Russia. However, on
the 1920 census index card he lists Austria as his birthplace, not Russia,
though the census itself lists Russia. His name was Abraham Helfman, his
wife, Rose Zagermacher. Neither name sounds Russian. He was born about
1867. I suspect his family emigrated to Russia when he was a youngster.
Does anyone know of a reason why Jewish people might have migrated >from
Austria, Germany, Poland, etc. to Russia? (He had 8 children, apparently
born in Russia.)
Many thanks for any help.

On the one hand, that's wonderful news! I was always terrified that the
originals were deteriorating -- by use or abuse, and would someday be
gone. On the other hand, I'll miss the chill that went up my spine when
I realized that I was holding the very precious piece of paper that my
ggrandparents had actually signed!

Thanks for the info, Steve.

Greetings All,

I was at the National Archives-Northeast Division (NYC) today and discovered
that all the Southern District of New York naturalization petitions filed
between the years 1897 and 1944 are now on microfilm (M1972). These
incorporate Volume No. 64, Page 1 to Petition No. 436400. They are currently
microfilming all the records for the Eastern District of New York. This
means that they will no longer be retrieving those big books stored in the
back room with the original naturalization records, at least for the ones I
just mentioned that have already been microfilmed.

Sandys Row Synagogue is the oldest existing and still functioning synagogue

visited it a few years ago on the European Day of Jewish Culture (this year

The Dockyard in Deptford closed in 1869.

As Celia suggests >from their Deptford/Greenwich origins - and I infer >from

I do imagine that a shipwright was a fairly "respectable" trade.

(Incidentally my maternal grandfather Atlas and his family settled in nearby
Woolwich when they came to England - this was and is an old army town.)

Re: Last Name TYM #general

Nurit Kraus-Friedberg writes: I recently discovered that my
gggrandmother's maiden name was TYM. I've never heard of this name,
ever, on anyone. I have, however met people with the name DYM. Does
anyone out there have any information on these two names and if they
are variants of each other?

Nurit tells us they were >from Galicia and as we know, many Galicians
settled in Vienna, I looked for traces there. I could of course look
intensively on jri-pl and other sites but in the meantime I can
confirm that a TYM lived and died in Vienna:

TYM Abraham aged 74 died 01.08.1915 buried Zentralfriedhof Gate 1
Group 50 row 49 grave 63A

There are however seven Galician DYM buried in Vienna.

We can see that Abraham was born in 1841 - but where? A study of the
records in Vienna should tell us.

However, sadly Yad Vashem tells us more: there are under 30 TYM
victims mostly >from Strzow, Rzesow, Lwow/Lemberg - a few from
Tarnopol Krakow and also >from Sanok. We remember them all here today
Most of them have POTs. Here again the DYM predominate - there are
about 400 and most have POTs. They come >from more or less the same
areas that the TYM come from. There are no TYM holocaust victims
from Vienna but 14 DYM settled there and you can see where they came
from.

In both Polish and Russian, "Dym" means "smoke". In Russian, "T'ma" means
"dark", so that the name might be equivalent to German "Schwarz", but
phonetically that's a stretch.
