FABIAN of Bucuresti - Ottoman and Canadian connections? #general

Shaul and Aviva Ceder <ceder@...>
 

My wife's ggf was Jacob (Jonku) FABIAN, b. 1871 Bucuresti, d. 1933 Brooklyn,
m. Perl (Pepie) BERMAN; children: Charlotte (wife's gm, m. Harry IMERSHEIN),
Jean, Valentine, Julia, Leopold.

Jacob's parents were Leopold and Julia (nee ROGARUS or RUGARUS).

We have been told by a relative of my wife, basing on childhood memories,
that the FABIAN family was said to have migrated to Romania (which had been
part of the Ottoman Empire until 1877) >from Turkey proper, and that a part
of the family had emigrated to Canada. Can anyone shed any light on this?
Thanks.

Yizkor Book Project, November 2010 #france

Shalom,

Before outlining what has transpired in the month of November in the Yizkor
Book Project, I would like to take time to salute our very (very) small but
extremely dedicated team of volunteer htmlers - Max Heffler & Osnat Ramaty.
These wonderful people have been in the Yizkor Book for many, many years and
their experience, patience and never-say-no attitude is very much
appreciated. Max is also multi-tasking in a great deal of other projects and
he is the man behind the regular updates of our necrology database - an
extra salute to him! The necrology database, by-the-way, can be researched
at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

And on the subject of research, I am often sent messages asking if a Yizkor
book is available for a particular community. If this is a question you're
been asking yourself, I highly recommend you look at our Yizkor Book
database to see what book(s) are available for the community you're
researching and if we have a Yizkor Book Project already online, you will
note a hot link to the available translation in our site.

http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html

Something new to our projects. We have began adding in hot links (where
appropriate) >from project main pages to the original Yizkor Books that are
available at the NY Public Library site:

http://legacy.www.nypl.org/research/chss/jws/yizkorbookonline.cfm

Since we have hundreds of books, we still have a lot to add but we see this
a great help for those who are able to read the books in their original
languages, and is on our long list of "things-to-do".

As always, the Yizkor Book Project relies on the help of its many volunteers
and if you feel that you have time to assist - knowledge in translation or
editing not a must, I would definitely like to hear >from you.

Now to the November figures. During this last month we have added these 4
new projects:

extremely dedicated team of volunteer htmlers - Max Heffler & Osnat Ramaty.
These wonderful people have been in the Yizkor Book for many, many years and
their experience, patience and never-say-no attitude is very much
appreciated. Max is also multi-tasking in a great deal of other projects and
he is the man behind the regular updates of our necrology database - an
extra salute to him! The necrology database, by-the-way, can be researched
at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

And on the subject of research, I am often sent messages asking if a Yizkor
book is available for a particular community. If this is a question you're
been asking yourself, I highly recommend you look at our Yizkor Book
database to see what book(s) are available for the community you're
researching and if we have a Yizkor Book Project already online, you will
note a hot link to the available translation in our site.

http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html

Something new to our projects. We have began adding in hot links (where
appropriate) >from project main pages to the original Yizkor Books that are
available at the NY Public Library site:

http://legacy.www.nypl.org/research/chss/jws/yizkorbookonline.cfm

Since we have hundreds of books, we still have a lot to add but we see this
a great help for those who are able to read the books in their original
languages, and is on our long list of "things-to-do".

As always, the Yizkor Book Project relies on the help of its many volunteers
and if you feel that you have time to assist - knowledge in translation or
editing not a must, I would definitely like to hear >from you.

Now to the November figures. During this last month we have added these 4

Traveling Russian Boys Choir - Finding Records #ukraine

Rochelle Gershenow
 

As a young boy, my grandfather travelled throughout Europe (probably
somewhere between 1893 and 1903) as the lead tenor in a Russian based boys
choir. He lived in Priluki, Ukraine, which was in Poltava Guberynia. Is
there any way to find records or information of such a choir and its
members?

2) going >from Kiev area to Hamburg to Boston, would some sort of passport
application exist in 1913? Family lore says border guards were bribed,

Yizkor Book Project, November 2010 #yiddish

bounce-2137214-772983@...
 

Shalom,

Before outlining what has transpired in the month of November in the Yizkor
Book Project, I would like to take time to salute our very (very) small but
extremely dedicated team of volunteer htmlers - Max Heffler & Osnat Ramaty.
These wonderful people have been in the Yizkor Book for many, many years and
their experience, patience and never-say-no attitude is very much
appreciated. Max is also multi-tasking in a great deal of other projects and
he is the man behind the regular updates of our necrology database - an
extra salute to him! The necrology database, by-the-way, can be researched
at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

And on the subject of research, I am often sent messages asking if a Yizkor
book is available for a particular community. If this is a question you're
been asking yourself, I highly recommend you look at our Yizkor Book
database to see what book(s) are available for the community you're
researching and if we have a Yizkor Book Project already online, you will
note a hot link to the available translation in our site.

http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html

Something new to our projects. We have began adding in hot links (where
appropriate) >from project main pages to the original Yizkor Books that are
available at the NY Public Library site:

http://legacy.www.nypl.org/research/chss/jws/yizkorbookonline.cfm

Since we have hundreds of books, we still have a lot to add but we see this
a great help for those who are able to read the books in their original
languages, and is on our long list of "things-to-do".

As always, the Yizkor Book Project relies on the help of its many volunteers
and if you feel that you have time to assist - knowledge in translation or
editing not a must, I would definitely like to hear >from you.

Now to the November figures. During this last month we have added these 4
new projects:

- Maydan, Ukraine (Majdan, Carpathia: The names of the Jews and their fate
in the Holocaust) http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/maydan/maydan.html

Vital Records for Tilsit, Germany #general

Marcy Greene
 

Just wondering if anybody would know if there are any vital records for the
town of Tilsit, Germany which was a town very close to the Lithuanian border
in 1940. After the war,it became part of the Soviet Union and today it is
called Sovetsk.

Many Lithuanians did seasonal work there and a lot of other Lithuanians lived
there year round because it was so close to their border. I think that this
town would be of interest to a lot of people who are researching their
families in Lithuania. Any help in finding any town records would be greatly
appreciated.

Thank you everybody for taking the time to read my e-mail and looking forward
to hearing >from you when you get a chance.

Happy Chanukah to all.
