There is a much easier solution which I used successfully on my multiple
Vista computers and is also availble for Windows 7 - there is a free
update available:

ALENIKOFF (Vitebsk/NY/Cuba/Israel?) #general

Myree Mueller <kmueller@...>
 

Dear All,

I have had an update on my tree (after some 22 years of looking) including (at
last) a name for great grandfather and the news that there was a fourth child of
his so am sending out a new appeal for information.

I am researching ALENIKOFF/ALEINIKOFF originally >from Vitebsk, Belarus.

My great grandfather is now unveiled as Zalmin ALEINIKOFF (as spelt on his
daughter's wedding certificate).

his children were....

Milly b. 1888 (ended up in London, married to a BOROVITCH and their descendants
have changed their names variously to Boris, Bradley, etc. Milly married for a
second time as a widow aged 74 and it is >from that certificate which I got a
copy of the other day which shows the father being Zalmin ALEINIKOFF)

Phillip Solomon b. 1891 (ended up in New York with his wife Tillie at the
beginning of the 20th century)

Lipa b. 1898 (ended up living in Cuba, at least in 1940 with wife Cila - we
only learned of his existence recently. Could be they had a son (maybe
daugther, maybe more issue) but I'm having trouble tracking any information - I
also wonder if any descendants went to Israel?)

Haia S. b. 14 September 1902 my grandmother (ended up in Shanghai and then New
York). She was born ALENIKOFF and then when in Shanghai she was calling
herself Clara BLUESTEIN who married my grandfather MULLER/MUELLER. They
divorced and in 1950 she emigrated to New York - first to her brother Phillip.
Interestingly her name on the ship's manifest was Haia S. BLUESTEIN. USICS
service was taken up and they found her in the indexes for alien registration
but subsequent search of actual file deems it to be lost or destroyed. I have
no clues whatsoever as to what happened to her after 1950 and it is said she
may have married again.

Considering the name Lipa only came up in recent months, I wonder if there were
more children between Philip and Lipa or indeed after Haia.

Koko Mueller

Dear Genners,
I wonder if anyone can make sense out of this. It's a statement made by an
ancestor in Yiddish, describing something about where they lived in Russia.

Dear All

Having found burials on JOWBR at Shara Tfilo Cemetery, West Roxbury, MA,
does anybody know if burial records are held there or whereabouts I could
locate them. One burial is for 1956 and the other for 1960.
Is a specific Synagogue connected to this Cemetery.

Many thanks

Researching DRIBIN and SELIKOWITZ families in USA #general

Gerard Xavier <dak.sene07@...>
 

Dear all

I'm French, working actually for a Swiss NGO in Senegal.

My grandfather, Shulem DRIBIN (DRIBINS) was born in Kretinga, Lithuania, abt
1875 and was son of Gutman DRIBIN. My grandmother, Taube (or Taube-Teckla)
SELIKOWITZ was born in Skuodas, Lithuania, in 1879. They where settled in
Libau, Latvia, at the end of the 19th century or very beginning of the 20th.
They had 5 children there. One of them, Gita (twin sister of Wulf) was born
in 14 august 1905 and was my mother.

My grandfather died in December 1928 in Libau. My grandmother and a most of
the family members where killed by the Nazis between 1941 and 1945, in the
vicinity of Libau, in Auschwitz or in the Strutthof concentration camp. My
mother and her sister Fruma where in France at the time of the WWII, that's
why they survived.

I know that members of the DRIBIN and SELIKOWITZ families emigrated >from
Lithuania and Latvia to the USA, but I have very few informations. I just
discovered on Ancestry.com that a Sarah DRIBIN, 69, widow, arrived in Ellis
Island >from Libau on the "Polonia" in 1st December 1921 to join her son. She
gave the address of an other son in Libau : Sholem DRIBIN, Juliannenstr. 24.
So, this Sarah could be my great-grandmother.

Thank you in advance for any information about the DRIBIN and/or SELIKOWITZ
families.

Contact Information for Rivkah Kreinovitz-Shnaider #general

Marcy Greene
 

Just wondering if anybody knows where I can contact Rivkah Kreinovitz-Shnaider
who supplied photographs to the JewishGen ShtetLinks Page for (Tavrig)
Taurage, Lithuania. The photographs were of the last class of the Hebrew pro
gymnasium (1940) and the graduating class of the Hebrew elementary school in
Tavrig (1936-37). Along with Rivkah Kreinovitz-Shnaider,there is a picture
of Sonia SHLOMOVITZ who I believe is related to me. Hoping to speak with
Rivkah Kreinovitz-Shnaider to find out some information on my SHLOMOVITZ
family, as well as, to find out about Sonia SHLOMOVITZ.

If any one knows how I can contact any of Rivkah Kreiner-Shnaider's immediate
family that too would be of great assistance. Any help would be kindly
appreciated. Some of my SHLOMOVITZ family perished in the Taurage District
of Lithuania during the Holocaust and I would very much like to speak with
Rivkah or someone in her family to see if she would be able to tell me what
happened to other members of the family in Lithuania.

Thank you everybody so much for taking the time to read my letter and looking
forward to hearing >from you when you get a chance.

All the best and Shana Tova to everybody.

Thanks everyone!

Any further help will be much appreciated,
