Searching for BANK - new data #lithuania

Igor Schein <igorschein@...>
 

I learned a couple of new things about my BANK family, which brought
up new questions.

1) My great-grandmother's uncle owned a candy-manufacturing factory in
Vilno, At some point after 1917 (I was told in 1930s) he emigrated to
the US. Are there post-1917 business directories where I might find
an entry for him? Unfortunately I don't know his first name, which
is kind of mandatory to look for him in vital records. He had two
brothers, my second great-grandfather Mikhoel and his younger brother
Motel who emigrated to the US earlier.

2) His sister, Khaya BANK was married to Meyer SEGAL. Their children
(at least the older ones) were born in Zarasai uezd, but at some point
the family moved to Utena, Ukmerge. I am hoping to find their traces
among Ukmerge records, especially those of their daughter Riva, who
married, had two children (one before 1933, one in 1933) and divorced,
all of that presumably happening in Utena. Would I benefit from
joining Ukmerge group? Unlike Sarazai uezd, where a few of my roots
are and where I am a member, my Ukmerge interest is strictly limited
to the family above, so I'd like to know what's available for members
before joining that group.

Thanks

Igor Schein

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Because Vilna was part of inter-war Poland, listings
for confectioners in Vilna would be in inter-war Polish Business
Directories, organized alphabetically by business/profession within a
town. A link to the 1929 Polish Business Directory can be found on the
homepage of Jewish Records Indexing-Poland at www.jri-poland.org
And at http://genealogyindexer.org/directories one can search a

Re: Austrian Census from 1880 #galicia

Carrielynn Apgar
 

Genners,

Thank you to everyone who responded to my request for information
on the Austrian Census of 1880 with emphasis on Galicia. Since some
of you seemed interested in this, I thought I'd post the feedback I
received. It appears that most of the census documents >from 1880
have not survived. Miriam Weiner's site, rtrfoundation.org provides
information about the types of documents that have survived for each
Galician town. Unfortunately, the census for my grandparents town,
Nadworna, have not survived. There is however, a census >from 1880
for the district of Stanislawow. If you are interested in the 1880
census, do a search for your town using rtrfoundation.org as a
reference. If the census is available for your town, copies can be
purchased >from the National Archives that holds the records for that
town.

Thanks again for your feedback!

Re: Lithuania to the Ukraine #ukraine

Lin Mor
 

Annette S was wondering about her ERLICHMAN family's movements >from
Lithuania to the Ukraine and then Prussia to the Ukraine. Both of
us are researching ERLICHMAN but have not made a positive connection
between our families. In my opinion, the name itself, "honest,"
suggests a Germanic origin rather than an Eastern European one.

People did move around for many reasons, they acquired last names
which sometimes were based on their previous residence and that
clue may be evidence (how to prove?) of truth to the family story.

My ggm ERLICHMAN born in Oster, Ukraine married my ggf AMCHISLAVSKY
born in neighboring Kozelets. According to Where Once We Walked,
AMCHISLAVSKY means "comes >from Amchislav" or "Omshilav." That
place is the Yiddish name for a place in eastern Belarus known
as Mstislavl. I theorize that when people had to start using
last names, this family used the Yiddish place name >from where
they lived before they lived in the Ukraine.

Another fact that we are all aware of is that borders of countries
changed quite often during history, which adds to the confusion
unless we have definite dates for our family stories. I believe
there were parts of western Lithuania that were politically
Prussian for a time.

Annette S was wondering about her ERLICHMAN family's movements >from
Lithuania to the Ukraine and then Prussia to the Ukraine. Both of
us are researching ERLICHMAN but have not made a positive connection
between our families. In my opinion, the name itself, "honest,"
suggests a Germanic origin rather than an Eastern European one.

Morris NISSENBAUM-Berlin 1922 #general

My late father-in-law Rabbi Morris JERUSHALMY (born in Grieva) came to
Berlin in the early 20th cent. to a Morris NISSENBAUM , address:
Schoenhauser Allee 49 (in 1922). Is anyone related to or know the
family of this Morris NISSENBAUM and what may have been the connection
between these two Morriss.
