Viewmate: Lithuanian Travel Documents - Translation from Polish, Russian, and Lithuanian #general

Moishe Miller
 

Dear Group,

Happy Fourth of July to everyone in the United States.

I have received travel documents for Rabbi Eliezer Predmesky and family.
The family fled his hometown in Lithuania, first around 1916 and later
he left Europe to the USA around 1922.

A descendant of his in Israel shared some copies with me. Can anyone
translate the pages >from the Polish/Russian/Lithuanian?

I have posted them here:

help locating SCHVITZER/SCHWITZER/LUSTIG family in Israel #general

Debby Gincig Painter
 

I am trying to locate Zev SCHVITZER/SCHWITZER or his descendants/
family members or Moses LUSTIG, his nephew. Mr Schvitzer filed a
Yad Vashem Testimonial for his sister, Ruchel/Rachela Itte (nee
KEMPLER) Lustig in September, 1956. Ruchel married Abraham LUSTIG
and they had a son, Moshe/Moses who was living in Israel, possibly
Ashkelon as of 1971. Abraham Lustig was my Grandfather's brother.
He was born in Limanova (possible Nowy Sacz) and it is believed
that he died between 1970-1976 in probably Ashkelon. I am totally
blocked with this side of the family and any assistance would be
greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance,

Re: Korban Nesanel #rabbinic

Percy Mett
 

You can be quite certain that, if the Korban Nesanel had been a Levi, it
would be mentioned in his "yichus" (ancestry).

Ergo, the lack of such mention by his son in his pedigree is conclusive
evidence that he was not a Levi.

At Hebrewbooks.org you can see the introduction to the Korban
Nesanel, in which he lists his ancestors going back about 4-5
generations (to Rav Yaakov Weill), with the places where they
served as AvBeisDin/Rav. Although it does not refer to anyone
as a Levi or Kohen, I would not exclude the possibility based
on this. Perhaps searching on the names of his ancestors or in
their works(or tombstones,if available) would yield some results.

Hello,
I have three letters written by my husband's grandparents from
Nazi-occupied Amsterdam to their daughter between 1940-1943.

I'm new to JewishGen but would like to make contact with someone who
could translate these letters for me. I have checked out the ViewMate

Please let me know if you think you could help me with these letters.
Thank you very much.

Bessarabia Revision List Updates from June 2014 #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear Researchers,

12,756 Revision records were added to the Bessarabia Revision database.
Thanks to all volunteers who worked many hours to make this happen.
Shortly the records will be available at JewishGen - Romania-Moldova
Database. We have now total of 81,438 Revision records.

The mew addition includes oldest records found so far: >from 1824, these are
records >from 4 kehilot in the Khotin district: Khotin, Brichany, Lipkany and
Otaki (Otaki was in Khotin district in 1824, and after that became part of
Soroki district). These are very different records include Heads of
Households, usually men, but also widows with children who could work in the
fields. The geography is very much not what we would expect in 1824. Only
in Khotin kehila Jews lived in 70! localities, and overall in 4 kehilot they
lived in about 200 localities.

Also almost all records have a set of personal characteristics of the
person: type of a face, nose, color of hair, eyes, some other special
features.

In addition to 1824 records, we have records >from 1835 - 1859 for towns of
Teleneshty, Faleshty, Orgeev, Tuzora (Kalarash), Kriulyany, Kaushany,
villages >from Bendery and Orgeev districts, Bricheva, Markuleshty,
Mereshevka, Soroki and Gancheshty.

In several days, after the Bessarabia SIG website is going to be updated,
you can find the details of all sets of records worked >from summer of 2013
up to June of 2014.

If you have any questions, please email me at yefimk@verizon.net.
