Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Town Suggestions? #ukraine

Jennifer Alford <jengen.blogspot@...>
 

Dear Fellow JewishGenners,

I am trying to help my cousin figure out which town her family (Rivkin) came from. Her uncle told her that it was Krivanoveski in Russia. He thought it was near Kiev and part of what is now Croatia. Any suggestions as to which towns it might be? I've tried the town finder with no clear matches. I thought Khrystynivka might be a possibility and added the surname to the family finder. Any other suggestions will be appreciated.

Let me know what you think. Thank you for your time!

I believe it's Belarus: http://bycity.org/vileika/ - 80km >from Minsk, 140km >from Vilnius.
also >from Eilat Gordon Levitan's page on JG (http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Vileyka/Vileyka.html ) there is a link to NYC Public Library that has a memorial book of Vileika. It's in Hebrew, original version. Eilat Gordin Levitan translated it to english.
There is also Vileika as a small area of Vilnius, known as Novaya(new) Vileika.

My great grandmother (Esther Altschuler) is listed on an 1886 Hamburg Passenger list as residing in Wilaika, Russland. I am trying to locate that city. Can anyone help?

My maternal grandfather, Israel Kellner was buried in Jerusalem in 1969. He was
buried in a cemetery called Har Hamenuchot. My late uncle told me that he was
buried in Gus 8, Block 2, Line 13, Greis 11. If possible, I would love a photo of
his headstone.

Thank you

I am trying to find the burial place of a relative of mine - Joseph Pesah Buz. He
was the son of Rachel Segal and Menachem Mendel Buz. Rumour has it that he was one
of the founding members of Kibbutz Ginnosar. He drowned at Lake Kinneret in 1926
and was married to Pesia Blumberg.

Thanks you

Re: Skole and Liesberg #galicia

Dear Stuart Ungar!

Skole Market is the centre of Skole, the marketplace - typical Jewish
area in the centre of a Galician city. The city was ruined during WW2,
but something have survived. (Old townhall was dismounted in the
50ies.) I can't identify Liesberg at the moment. The Skole area was
colonized by the Germans, so it may be some old toponym of
German (not necessarily Jewish) origin. This name should have been
changed after WW2.

Regards,
Igor Holyboroda

1) She was born in Skole Market. Is that a place, building or region of

2) Her grandmother was born in Liesberg. Where is that (and where in
relation to Skole)? And is it still named the same?...

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Boston (JGSGB) has an up-to-date list of
Boston area resources. Google JGSGB. On the home page, under Resources is a
button for a pdf file of Boston Area Resources. You can order a birth certificate
for a fee >from the State or, if you know it, >from the city or town.

If you found a list on Family Search, you should be able to find the actual images
on line there also. They have B/M/D records 1841-1915.

From: Jonathan Malamy [mailto:jmalamy@...] My family search began in NYC and
I have learned my way around vital records and the municipal archives at 31
Chambers. But one branch of my family settled and spent years in Boston. Through
familysearch.org I linked to some birth lists but I am wondering if their are
individual birth certificats for Boston/Mass as there are in NY. And marriage and
death too, for that matter. And if so, how do you get access to them? ~

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Joseph and Sadie Ruderman Horowitz #general

Liz Miller <lizdmiller@...>
 

Hello,

I continue to look for descendants of my Ruderman family. I located the 1910. 1920
and 1930 census records for my great uncle, Harry Ruderman and his wife, Golde/
Gussie and their children, Sam, Sarah/Sadie, David, Esther and Abe(Abie). In the
1930 census, Sadie and her new husband, Joseph Horowitz were living with the family
in Brooklyn.

However, I have been unable to locate any of he family in the 1940 Census. I was
under the impression that they remained in Brooklyn.

Out of the multiple number of Joseph Horowitz, I don't find Joseph and Sadie or
Sarah listed anyplace.

I would appreciate any suggestions as to how I can search better in finding the
family and their descendants.

Most sincerely,

Liz Ruderman Miller

Confirming the Birth Towns of My Grandparents #belarus

Ken Entin
 

Greetings,

I have hit brick walls trying to identify the East European towns where my
maternal grandparents were born and/or lived. Perhaps someone can assist me
by providing a fresh perspective.

Following their marriage and the birth of a daughter, my grandfather made
his way to the United States in 1905 via London. It appears that he spent
almost a year in London and this is documented by a record >from the 'Poor
Jews Temporary Shelter. It indicates that Ch Yentin
was born in Drui and traveled to London on the ship Sperber
from Bremen. Unfortunately, ship manifests >from European ports to England
are not available. When he arrived in the U.S., he identified himself as
Chone (later Charles) Yentin . He also listed London as the origination point.

Until 1930, he kept the name Yentin; it was changed in that year to Entin.


In his Declaration of Intention and Petition for Citizenship, Charles Yentin
identified Vilna as the location where he was born, although this could refer
to the province, rather than the town itself.

My grandmother arrived at Ellis Island in 1907. On the ship manifest,
she indicated that both her birth town and last address was
sway. Her brother-in-law subsequently identified Vitebsk
as his place of birth on his Petition for Naturalization.

Both my grandparents are buried in Montiefore Cemetery in Springfield, NY
in Landsmanshaft).

I have two questions:

1.Is Drui most likely Druya, even when my grandfather identifies Vilna
as his place of birth?
2.Are Osway and Oshve most likely Osveya?

Both towns are in Belarus today.

Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

First of all, thanks for all the responses both in this forum and privately.

For those who asked, the name was most definitely Zechiel. Since he was detained
due to lack of funds, his name appears twice, and very clearly begins with a Z.
There were enough capital "Y"s on the page to enable comparison - the clerk was
very consistent and had very clear handwriting.

I just found out that my gg-grandfather Julius' original name was Zechiel. I
found one or two instances in which Zechiel was used as a family name, but
never as a first name.
