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

Sincerely:
Martin Spolansky

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

Sharon R. Korn <s.r.korn@...>
 

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.

Thanks to all who helped decipher messages of VM 10715 & 10717 #general

Lois Sernoff
 

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
a reply.

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,
Lois Sernoff [Philadelphia, PA, USA]

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

meaning of double surnames (Passport Database ) #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

<< From: "Ried Nathalie" <nathalieried@free.fr>
I found in the Lithuania Passports Database (sept 1920) the wife of an
ancestor listed thus: RABINOVICH-VITKIND, Lidja (BARDIN)
I understand the name between brackets is the woman's maiden name, the one
listed before the woman's given name being her husband's name.
Her husband as I knew him >from other sources was Fishel WITKIND, son of
Yankel Sholom WITKIND. In short, I had never come across the name
RABINOVICH in this family before. Does it mean that Fishel had a double
surname including for example his mother's surname? >>

There is a very good chance the Lithuania Internal Passport files include
additional documents, as well as information, about your ancestor. I
suggest you contact the archive and obtain copies of everything in the
file for Lidja RABINOVICH-VITKIND. Be sure and send the information you
found in the database and also mention your family connection. This is
required because of the 100 year privacy law in effect.

marriage resistration #lithuania

Dr. Menahem Luz <mervyn1@...>
 

i found the official Latvian record of my gr.gr. grandparents marriage on
jewishgen.org but it was registered for 1889/90 --about 30 yrs after the
birth of their children and when they were no longer young - could anyone
tell me if i should presume that official records of marriages had no
connection at all with the actual huppa years earlier - or is their
something amiss here?
