Researching Gorodische #ukraine

sbrusi@...
 

Hello everyone,

I find myself in a tough situation and wanted to get your
opinion/advice on this.

I'm having trouble pinpointing the location where my paternal
ancestors lived. My great grandfather was Israel Brusilovsky (born
1891) and his parents were Elias Brusilovsky and Pese Besanovsky. Only
Israel emigrated to Argentina in 1912 (via Hamburg - I found the
record).

According to family sources the family was >from a town called
"Gorodische". Unfortunately this appears to be quite a common name for
a Shtetl. In the emigration record it states that he is from
"Gorodets" (record >from Hamburg officials).

That's all the facts I have. How do you think I should proceed? I
don't think paying a researcher >from Ukraine or Belarus would yield
results if I don't know where they really were from, right?

Any advice is welcomed! Thanks-

Anybody recognize them? and Yiddish translation #romania

Fellow researchers:

I posted in the ViewMate, a photo in which appears my grand father Abraham Orhan
standing in the left with other 3 men and the back of the photo written by
himself in Yiddish. My grandparents lived in Noua Sulita before WWII and they
were taken to Transnistria with their two little daughters: my mother Sheiva
and my aunt Lucy.

My grandparents passed away in Transnistria camp and the kids were repatriated
after the liberation by the russian army.

I will appreciate if anybody recognize the other 3 men in the photo or help me
with the translation >from Yiddish.

The link to the photo is:

Dear Bessarabers,

I want to introduce you to a new section at our Bessarabia SIG website -
'Landsmanshaften'.

in Bessarabia.

A new article "Federation of Bessarabian Jews in America" was written by
Gloria Green. It is exactly 100 years since the Federation of Bessarabian
Jews in America and the Hebrew National Orphan Home were organized. Read
about these organizations. Gloria, thank you very much for your initiative.

I am also waiting information about Beit Bessarabia in Tel Aviv to put into
same section.

All the best,

names of women divorced or with marriages annulled #general

Herbert Lazerow
 

It was not uncommon in Jewish records in Tsarist Russia when a divorced woman
remarried to reference her as something like "Sarah, divorced wife of Chernigov
townsperson Moshe Pipik and daughter of Nezhin townsperson Shmuel Iofe." Often
the record is less complete, and sometimes it is unclear whether the surname
given is the maiden name or the married name.
I have never seen a record that stated that a woman (or a man) had been a party
to a marriage that had been annulled, which would be logical because the result
of an annulment is that the marriage never existed.

Thanks to all the replied. Someone managed to give me enough
information for me to find an ancestry.com family tree with the people
on the certificate (I don't know how I missed that). In any event, they
give the maiden name of the husband's mother as being Jennie Sadarsky).

Google "Restarts" Their Newspaper Archive #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Many of us who do newspaper research have used the Google archives for many
years. During the past year it has been more difficult --to find it on
their website because in May 2011 Google announced it was stopping its
archival project. Recently, Google has had a change of heart and their
archives may now be found at: http://news.google.com/newspapers .
Previously, Google stated they would not be providing any further features
or functionality to the Google News Archives and were no longer accepting
new microfilm or digital files for processing. The change of heart to start
more sites etc. is welcome.The site contains about 2,000 historic newspapers
predominately >from the United States and Canada. Google has also announced
a new digitiazation project with the Mons, Belgium (Mundaneum) Museum for
their archives.

More about this can be read in Genealogy In Time Magazine.
