This pair seems to be the parents of Major General Mordechai Makleff, who
according to "the Who's who of World Jewry 1965 ed., was the son of Arieh
and Chaya (ZIMERINSKY).

According to the above book his children's name are Amir and Edith.

Subject: [ukraine] Rebbe Yechiel Tzvi CHEMERINSKY

I am attempting to help a friend learn about the family of her great
grandfather Rebbe Yechiel Tzvi CHEMERINSKY. He was probably born about
1860(perhaps a bit earlier). He immigrated to Israel in 1871 (probably from
"Russia"), and he died in 1931 in Israel.

One of Rebbe Yechiel's daughters was Batya Chia CHEMERINSKY, born about 1880
in Israel. She married Arie Leib MACLEV about 1898 and was murdered in
Motza during the Arab riots in 1929.

If anyone has any information on the CHEMERINSKY family, please contact me
privately.

One of the survivors of the 1929 massacre in Motza was
a child called Mordechai Maklef, who lost then both
his parents. He later became the Chief of Staff of the
Israeli Army. I think that it that this might be a
good lead.

Fate of Jews in Vilna Ghetto #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

<< From: mordechai pelta mdpelta@...
I am trying to find out which sources I may consult to find out more
about the fate of Jews who were in the Vilna ghetto during the war. >>

The Jewish Museum in Vilnius published a two-volume book
containing extensive information about the Vilna ghetto. Also
included is the 1942 census of the Jews in the ghetto and
surrounding work camps recorded by the Nazis. All 15,300 names
of the Jews included in the census are in a database on
www.litvaksig.org

That will tell you who was there in 1942. What happened to all of
them may never be completely known. Thousands of them were
killed in the pits at Ponar, just outside of Vilnius. The Nazis
recorded the number of victims taken to Ponar but did not record
the names.

After World War II, Sh. Kacherginskij wrote a book, in Yiddish,
"Churben Vilne" (Destroyed Vilnius). It contained 1198 names of
Jews in Vilnius who were killed and, in most cases, where they
were killed. The book was published in Paris in 1949.

Some years ago, a Jewish woman in Vilnius translated the names
into English and, with the help of Carol Rombro Rider, I recently
obtained a list of all of the names. I am in the process of keying
all of the names into an Excel spreadsheet. It will be awhile before
the list is completed because my time is somewhat limited but it
will be done. However, there is more.

Through the fate of the genealogical Gods, I know the woman in Vilnius
who translated the names >from Yiddish to English and have been in
touch with her. She researched some of the names listed and found
additional information about them. I will send her the computerized
list and she will include the additional information.

After the list is in its completed form, it will be available through
LitvakSIG. An announcement will be made as soon as it is available.
In the meantime, please do not contact me and ask to look up names
as it will only slow the process down and I will not be able to respond
to those enquiries.

To whom it may concern:

It has been a year now, since I had discontinued my family history search,
and might add, had almost completed it with the aid of the great JewishGen
membership.

This laps after a death in my family, and now find I would like to continue
so that I may finish what I had started. .

My problem is, after all this time out of touch, I had lost contact with a great
deal of the members that had aided and directed me in the past

Do hope you will direct me as to the best way to get back into my search

Thank you for info on Russian emigration to U.S. #general

Thanks very much to all those who responded to my question about travel time
from Russia to the U.S. around 1900. A variety of types of experiences were
reported, as they were passed down >from various ancestors. I think I can
conclude that it probably took about a month to travel >from today's Ukraine
to New York, if one could go directly. However, there were various
circumstances that intervened, and the journey could sometimes be delayed
from a few months to a few years.

Jewish jails, jailers #general

shirley@...
 

In reply to Judith Wegner re: Alan Jailler's surname.

Were there Jewish jails in the 19th and 20th century European shtetlach?

Indeed there were Jewish jails and guards in the shtetl. The Yiskor book for the
Ukrainian-Polish border town Dubno shows the town jail. I asked my father in law,
who was born and raised there, which miscreants were incarcerated. He said that
the town drunk and a couple prostitutes were often put there, and a thief, >from
time to time.

This town was populated before WWII with many Jews. Over the centuries, the
Jewish population varied, but it was never less than half Jewish.

I do not know when circumstances would allow the court and justice system to be
'internal' to the Jewish part of town, and when matters were conducted by a civil
authority.

It is only our naivete that allows us to think that every Jew was law abiding. Or
that all government officials were non-Jews.

I'd like to publicly thank all those who responded to my postings on Viewmate. I
tried to respond to each privately but a few of you have spamblockers that prevent

Viewmate is a wonderful service and those who respond are so kind to take the time
to look.

Stay tuned; I have a few more to post.

Much appreciation,

MODERATOR NOTE: As there can never be enough thanks to those that help it is worth
stating that appreciation is always appreciated.
