Russian Jewish communities outside of the Pale #general

Joel Blankett <jnblank@...>
 

I recently posted on this mailing list asking for help in locating
information on the Jewish community of Vyshniy Volochok, located in the
former Tver Guberniya, Russia, in the time period up to the Russian
Revolution.

>from the (few) replies I've received, it seems to me that I've touched
on a more general issue regarding the availability (or rather, the lack
of it) of historic and genealogical data on the Russian Jewish
communities outside of the Pale of Settlement. I've come across this
situation earlier in my research of genealogical information on Russian
Jewish soldiers who settled in Finland . Most of the Finnish Jewish
community has its origin in these soldiers, and most of them came to
Finland >from the territories outside of the Pale, >from the Guberniyas of
Tver and Novgorod, St.Petersburg, Schlüsselburg (Petrokrepost) etc.
Here, too, I ran into a problem finding relevant data.

According to the 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia , toward the end of the 19th
century there were already some 300,000 Jews living in the Russian
territories outside of the Pale of Settlement, two thirds of them in the
European Guberniyas of Russia. Although many of these Jewish communities
were fairly small, so were many of the communities within the Pale, on
which plentiful information is often available.

I'd be interested to hear >from fellow genners if they share my
impression on what seems to be a lacuna in the availability of Jewish
genealogical data, including in the otherwise excellent resources
available on, and via, the JewishGen website.

ViewMate: 17448 and 17449 Russian Translation, please #poland

I have posted on ViewMate the following:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=17448

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=17449

These are two records I obtained at the Polish State Archives.
One is a death record. The second is a marriage record.
I would very much appreciate translation of the full names of
the individuals and their parents and family members on these
two records, and any other information they contain.

Please respond privately.

Thanks very much,

You can search the 1932 Palestine directory on genealogyindexer.org in
Hebrew and possibly find it.

There is one Hakhnasat Orhim Ashel Avraham that might be it.

Lejb vs Lejba #poland

Hank Mishkoff
 

A couple of weeks ago, I asked the group if Lejb and Lejba were two
different names, or if they were merely two forms of the same name.
(My records indicate that one of the families I'm tracing has sons
named both Lejb and Lejba, both living at the same time -- and I was
wondering if that were likely to have happened or if it was more
likely an error in my records.) I thought I'd post a quick summary
of the responses.

Nearly all of the people who responded said that Lejb and Lejba were
the same name. A few people also pointed out that one of the names
could have been something other than Lejb/Lejba, perhaps a name that
sounded similar to one of those names, and that the name might have
been transcribed incorrectly by the Polish authorities.

Many thanks to all of you who took the time to respond, I greatly
appreciate it -- even though it probably means I'm going to have to
take the time to figure out why my records are messed up [grumble,
grumble].

Estate Records for 1951-1973 for the Orange Free State, South Africa #lithuania

annrab@...
 

The following site https://beta.familysearch.org has now put online the
Estate Records, 1951-1973, for the Orange Free State, South Africa.
Although this is only a small portion of the total estate records, it is a
real bonanza for South African and other Jewish researchers.

The estate records are a wonderful resource as they can provide all or only
some of the following information: the name of the person, where they were
born, when died and where, their spouse(s), when married and where, names of
descendants and their married names and birth dates. In addition, the
estate can give you the property left by the deceased and who it was left to
which can be very interesting.

To view the records click on Africa and then the name of the records. You
can search by family name or by country the deceased was born in. As the
majority of Jews in South Africa were of Lithuanian descent, this is very
handy as you can find all Lithuanian-born individuals by going to Advanced
Search and plug in Birth and Lithuania. You will find approximately five
pages full of listings. Unfortunately, not all of the estates will have the
name of the shtetl in Lithuania as the descendants may not have known the
name of the shtetl or did not perhaps know how to spell it.

Some of the shtetls >from the major countries represented in the estate
records are:

LATVIA - Canday, Lutzin, Pilten, and Riga.

LITHUANIA - Abel, Bizui, Jasvan, Kurshan, Kwadan, Pikelly, Pokroi, Poneves,
Popelyany, Rittawen, Rokiskis, Salant, Saukena, Shadova, Shat, Shavli,
Telsia (Telz, Telsh, etc.), Trissik, Yurburg, Zabilen, and Zagara.

POLAND - Bialystok, Latria, Warsaw, and Wegrow.

RUSSIA - Curland, Gruzd, Sadowe, and Sukyajan (some of these are actually
Lithuania and Latvia).

It is well worth checking this site out as you may not realize that you have
branches of your family who went to Orange Free State in South Africa.

Beth Heim Cemetery in Greenwich Village #general

Stacye <GreensAndNettles@...>
 

By chance tonight I stumbled upon a short reference to Beth Heim
Cemetery in Greenwich Village in Manhattan.

The entry was recorded by Anna Alice Chapin in 1917 in her book
"Greenwich Village".

The link to the free online book ( written in 1917 it is now in the
public domain) : http://tinyurl.com/BethHeim

Hope this is helpful to someone.
