Encyclopedia La'chassidut p. 187 by Yitzchak Rafael lists Rabbi Aharon
Leb of Druya (or Driva) ("dalet-reish-vav-yud-aleph"), son of Rabbi
Moshe. The entry says: "One of the earliest olim to E.Y., he was
already there in 5544. His incredible letter to his son Rabbi Shmuel
has been published. He was known as Rabbi Leb Heneles." It lists as
the source: Binat Moshe by R' Moshe Elyakim of Kozhnitz pp.46-47
(Krakow 5649); Shluchei E.Y. p. 613

Hello to the group,

Now that Yom Kippur is over, I am back to genealogy.
Does anyone have information about a rabbi called Ahron Aryeh Leib of
Dukor (or Dukora) in Belarus. He lived during the 18th century and was a
"talmid" of the maggid of Mezerich and also a friend or was somehow
associated to R' Menachem Mendel of Vitebsk. I have read somewhere that
he was the son of rabbi Moshe "Harif" of Druja.
Any information about his ancestry, family, descendance or something he
might have written or made would be welcomed.

Researching SCHEIN/SHEIN - Do you recognize? #poland

Igor Schein <igorschein@...>
 

On the picture at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=16682 is my
great-great-grandfather Abram/Abraham/Avrum SCHEIN/SHEIN and his wife.
They came >from Eastern Europe (their son Boris was born in Warsaw in
1888) presumably just before WWI and settled in Brooklyn, NY. At
least one of their daughters arrived with them. Their daughter
(possibly the same one) ended up in Buenos Aires and died there
(presumably childless) in early 1960s. They also had a son who lived
in France. Either his name was Leon, or he lived in Lyon, France, or
both. Last communication between them and my family was presumably in
the mid 1930s. The family owned a small store in Brooklyn.
I would like to connect with their descendants as a part of my
genealogical research of surname SCHEIN.

GAMBURG/Family lists #lithuania

Paulette Bronstein
 

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 documents?

I apologize if these are basic questions. I read all of the
explanations and could not find answers to my questions.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Wikipedia, Facebook and ancestral towns eg Josvainiai #lithuania

rv Kaplan
 

As Facebook develops, there are more and more pages about our
ancestral towns in Eastern Europe, as well as groups of Facebook users
interested in these towns. It is easy to set up pages and groups, then
see where it leads.

I found, for example, a page for my great grandmother's town of
Josvainiai, Lithuania. It includes a chunk of information from
Wikipedia (a huge online encyclopedia) about this town. By
registering with Wikipedia, I was able to edit the Josvainiai article.
It contained brief details of the town's history etc, but conveniently
omitted the fact that there once was a Jewish community there which
made up a large proportion of the population. I have now updated this
article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josvainiai), so that it
includes:

Jews first settled in Josvainiai in the 17th Century, by 1897, 534
Jews lived in the town, constituting 40% of the total population.[1]
There was a synagogue and a Jewish school. Most Jews were expelled
during World War I. During their absence, a large part of the town
burned down. After the War, some returned. Before the Holocaust, the
Jewish population was 270, about 70 families. [2]They lived around the
market place and the nearby streets. During World War 2, the Jews were
murdered outside the town.

I like to think I am putting our ancestors back on the map, as it
were, in this way.
