I too have relatives whose eyes to me are very striking and almost Asian
looking. Does anyone have any links that show drawings/pictures of Jewish
Khazarian eyes?

Thanks for your help,

Re: Asian Eyes

I arranged a reunion of the entire generation of my family (the Komaiko
family) that was living in the Chicagoland area two years ago. One
thing that we all noticed was a similarity in all of our eyes, and how
Asiatic they all appeared. Perhaps the Khazaria link is our answer to
this mystery too. We are aware that Komaiko was a changed name, the
family name was originally Leibenson, and they came >from Anykst in
Lithuania in the 19th Century.

Dear Litvak/SIGers,

Only yesterday did I have a chance to read some weeks old postings
and
the thread on Japanese Ancestor/Asian Eyes which led to a posting on
Khazaria has solved a mystery for me.

My Jewish husband, born in Brooklyn, would, to look at him, seem
Mongolian. He has Asian eyes, as does his daughter, and we have always
kidded them that some Tartar or Cossack raped his greatgrandmother.
Having
spent a day reading everything online about the lost Jewish kingdom of
Khazaria,..and seeing that the genetic strain can be a J, and knowing
that
my husband's DNA analysis comes out a J, I feel certain as one can be
that
this boy >from Bensonhurst, son of a father >from the Ukraine, has Asian
eyes
because of roots in Khazaria. So, not all mysteries are solved in dusty
stacks of records. What he wears on his face seems clue to his origins,
and
best of all, it means he's still Jewish! Thanks for the help, Eileen
Douglas

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Just a reminder that the subject of DNA analysis per
se
is outside the scope of this list.

Re: The origin of the BOGORAD name and a potential crack in a brick wall #general

Sarah L Meyer
 

Dear Genners,
I too looked up the name in Beider's book and noted that he had a parenthetical
remark after Rabbi Dowid and that was Rabinovich,306. Also all that information was
under the name BAGARD, which is the root name. BOGORAD was one of the versions of
the name. However if that were all that I had to contribute, I would be responding
privately.
I need your advice as I think that this question may be the first crack in one
of my brick walls. I had learned my great grandmother Fayge's maiden name only a
few years ago >from a marriage application in New York City of my grandmother's half
brother Sam DAVIS in 1912 (at age 30). He and my grandmother shared a mother but
had different fathers as my grandmother was the daughter of a marriage of a widow
and widower (both with children). He had written down the name BIRGARDOVSKY, which
does not show up anywhere in Beider's book. However when I looked up BOGORAD
(which somehow reminded me of my great grandmother), I found just under BOGORAD the
name BOGORADOVSKIJ (Velizh and Vitebsk or Akkerman if spelled with an O instead of
the A), which only differs by one "r" (and some vowels). Furthermore, my sister
had told me that my grandmother told my mother that she (grandma) had "Yichus",
which this name implies.
This morning I checked JGFF for the name BOGORADOVSKIJ and no one is listed
with it. When I checked for BOGORAD there is even a researcher with this name >from
Odessa, which is where I had suspected that my great grandmother had lived before
she married my great grandfather. One reason that I thought that she might have
come >from Odessa is that is where Sam said he was born (in 1882). After my great
grandparents married, they lived in Kolonie L'vovo in Kherson, Guberniya. What do
you think? Is this a reasonable hypothesis for my great grandmother's family name?
And if it is, where should I start looking? Again all I have for Fayge's first
husband's surname is that it may be some thing like MAGRUTSKY. (His first name was
Ze'ev Wolf). Might this be why the family chose DAVIS as a surname when they
emigrated?

name help (WAJNTRUB) #general

Dear fellow researchers,

My husbands' ancestors. marriage document is listed in the PSA. I do not want to
pay the 60 odd dollars for the record so I am enlisting opinions.

There are no parents' names in the appropriate columns. The bride is listed
as Frejda-Minia Jankel Mordchelewna. Her surname is WAJNTRUB. I am assuming
that "Jankel" and "Mordchelewna" are the first names of her father, Yankel
and her mother Mordchelewna. I am also assuming that her mothers name simply
means "daughter of Mordechai".

FYI her grand daughter says that her name was Minna Weintraub and his was
Eliezer.

Any ideas?

Re: Place of Naturalization #general

Peter Zavon <pzavon@...>
 

If they arrived in 1904 they were most likely not eligible for naturalization until
1909, although they could file their Declaration of Intent in 1905 or later. If the
1910 Census says they had filed "First Papers," which is what "PA" means, then they
had only filed a Declaration of Intend at that point. If they followed through with
the naturalization process (and some did not), the Petition had yet to be filed.

Naturalizations completed after 1906 were reported by the court to the Federal
Government, which maintains a central index that is not directly accessible to the
public. However, a Freedom of Information request to the CIS (Citizenship and
Immigration Service) is the most direct way of finding the file. Ask for the
entire naturalization file, in case there are documents beyond a simply Petition
for Naturalization. There days, this process apparently takes around 24 months to
bear fruit.

Possibly quicker, but requiring more of your time and effort, is to check with the
various courts that could have performed the naturalization. Some of them will
have indexed records. Since the naturalization was after 1910, if at all, you need
to find out which state and municipal courts in and around St. Louis, MO, and don't
forget the part of Illinois just across the river, were doing naturalizations then
and check with them. Also check the records of Federal District Courts for that
area.

I suggest starting the FOI Request in motion, then do what you can to check
directly with individual courts.

I'm trying to find out where someone naturalized. They arrived in the
country in 1904. In the 1910 census they were residing in St. Louis, MO.
The census indicates that they petitioned (PA) for citizenship. They moved to
Evanston and eventually they settled in Vincennes,Indiana.

Where could the records possibly be and how do I go about obtaining a copy?

As we near the end of the year, I want to remind all of you who subscribe to
our SIG mailing list and enjoy the resources that JewishGen provides to
please remember to make your contributions. Donations to JewishGen help
keep the SIG and all of the other services running. And donations to the
SIG help us with special projects and events, like translation or
transcription projects or speakers at the IAJGS conference. Go to
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/ for information on how to
donate.

Thank you,

Randol Schoenberg
