Re: Brothers with different surnames #general

If all the sons in a Lithuanian family had different last names how can you
know for sure that they were siblings - I have one son with the last name
ABRAMOVICH and the rest of the boys named OSIPOVICH - only family heresy puts
them together as a family - any suggestions on how to prove that bother
ABRAMOVICH was biologically a sibling of the OSIPOVICH brothers
Thx

GAMBURG/Family lists #general

Greetings Fellow Researchers. I have a question about the Vilnius
Archives. How was the data collected by the census takers? Did they go
house to house and later organize families by name and registration
number? On the Zarasai-Salakas-1858-1876 list, lines 672 and 673, page
46 I found Gamberg, Abram, Head of Household, father - Eliash, Male,
age 16, registration number 177 and Gamburg, Eliash, Head of Household,
father - Nokhim, Male, age 15, registration number 178. How could 15
and 16 year old young men be heads of households? There were no other
family members listed with these two young men. Could this data
indicate that the two boys lived together? Are addresses mentioned on
original archives? I am referring to LVIA/1/1262/48.
I have a similar question about the Kaunas Regional Archives. I found
five GAMBURG families (KRA/I-211/1/78), registration numbers 594, 595,
596, 597 and 598, all with former registration numbers 177/165 on pages
262, 263 and 264. I also found two GAMBURG families (KRA/I-211/1/78)
registration numbers 592 and 593, former registration numbers 177/164,
page 261. Could the 177/165 and 177/164 families be related? Are the
addresses on the original archives?
I apologize if these are basic questions. I read all of the
explanations on Jewishgen.org and could not find answers to my
questions.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Re: Occupation "Negotiator" #general

In French "negociant" means merchant or trader.
Perhaps English has had the same meaning for "negotiator" in the past.

Or you have a family with a tradition for talking to hostage takers.

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine IT amd burials in Israel #ukraine

This is a synopsis of an announcement in the newspapers in Israel.

Chevra Kadisha, Israel's burial society, has never known a recession,
which naturally makes sense, as death never takes a vacation.

Over the past few months, the burial society has invested significant
resources in upgrading its technological services, in the hopes of
helping those looking for a loved one's final resting place to find it
more easily.

"In the last couple of months we have developed an SMS grave-locator
system," Yossi Zrock, head of Chevra Kadisha IT Services, told Yedioth
Ahronoth.

"If, for example, you've arrived at a cemetery and you don't know
where the gravestone is, text the name of the deceased to *4664 and
directions will be sent to you within seconds."

Chevra Kadisha, he added, is currently developing a GPS grave-locater
system for mobile phones. "Such technologies are required for the
bigger cemeteries, like the one in Holon, which has over 220,000
graves. People can get lost."

Soon, Zrock promised, cemetery goers will be able to rent a PDA upon
arrival, for only NIS 20 (about $5.3). The device will lead them
directly to the desired gravestone and will allow them, en route, to
view photos of the deceased, read about his life and access the
required prayers.

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine strippers #ukraine

A recent posting asking about the occupation "negotiator" prompts me
to ask a similar question.

All of the members of Samuel Shrybman's family who emigrated >from
Ukraine (Zhitomir) to Canada early in the 20th century, and resided in
Brockville, Ontario, are listed in Canada's 1911 census. The
occupation of one son is listed as "stripper". I'm not certain whether
this refers to work he was doing in Canada, or is a description of his
vocation in the Ukraine; I suspect it was the former. (I don't know of
any sawmill having been located in the Brockville area.)

I'd like to find out what this work entailed (especially since we
don't appear to have any other strippers in the family - at least none
who do it professionally).

(For those who enjoy hearing of others' small successes: it happens
that the Chamber of Commerce in Brockville, Ontario commissioned a
survey of local businesses in 1911, unrelated to the census. The COC
document gives the address of a storefront tailor shop on the main
street, and names Samuel Shrybman as the tailor. The census data
reveals that the (large) Shrybman family lived above that tailor shop.
The bonus is that the building still stands in the middle of charming
Brockville, and some newfound cousins and I were able to visit.)
