Jeff Lewy <airbair@...>
 

Dear GerSIGgers,

I have posted a tombstone >from 1871 in Alabama to
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM35964.

I would appreciate a full translation of the Hebrew portion, to
determine any data that isn't in the English portion, in particular,
the Hebrew name of the deceased and of her father.

Thanks! Jeff Lewy San Francisco, CA

I am working on lines with the names of Ifland (spelled many ways such
as Efland, Iffland, Iphland, Ifliand...) these people came >from Kherson
and Melitopole areas of Ukraine
Another line is Wolfin (also known as Volfin) >from Belarus and Ukraine
Pinsker >from Belarus
All of these people moved to Harbin China and I am struggling to find
another way to go with my research does anyone know what I could do next?

Treasure trove of recent translations by District Research Groups #rabbinic

Ezra Magid
 

B"H Shalom All,

Very happy to report that I found a treasure trove of archive
records recently translated by the Kaunas, Panevezys, and Vilnius
District Research Groups.

These records also corroborate other evidence of MAGID family
Rabbis that learned and/or accepted work in:

Poland, Latvia, Belarus, Galicia, Russia, Ukraine, Bessarabia, and
Romania.

Additional Y Chromosome DNA test results are pending to confirm
relation to the following present day MAGID surname variants:

MAGDEN, MAGEDOWITZ, MAGIDA, MAGIDOVICH, MAGIDOWITZ, MAGIT, et al.

I found the death record for Meir MAGID, 1835 Snipiskis - 11/14/1913
Vilna. Meir was a son of Sholom Israel MAGID and a brother of Hillel
Noach "Steinshneider" MAGGID, author of "Ir Vilna". I previously
wondered whether Meir survived to see Hillel's son, Prof. David,
continue the MAGID family genealogical research and writing, e.g.,
"Ir Vilna, vol2" (published posthumously) and "Toldos Mishpacha
Ginzburg".

Prof. David and many MAGID mishpacha died of starvation during the
siege of Leningrad. Prof. David was almost finished translating
RAMBAM's "Yud Daled" >from the original Arabic when he died. David's
library, including many personal letters >from Bialik, Sholom
Aleichem, and his friend and colleague Sakharov, remain in the
collection of The Oriental Museum in St. Petersburg.

Hillel's gf was "Maggid Tzedek", Rav Phineas MAGGID. 60+ manuscripts
of his books and speeches are also held by the Oriental Museum in St.
Petersburg. Rav Pinchas was the first son of my ancestors Rav Yehuda
Aryeh Leib and Rivka [KATZENELLENBOGEN] MAGID. Their descendants
presently live in every inhabited continent.

I'm overwhelmed with the number and quality of translations that I've
already found for relatives in my tree, in the Kaunas, Panevezys, and
Vilnius District Research Group translations ( http://goo.gl/6O33jP ).
I've also found hundreds of records for other rabbinic families in my
tree that married with MAGID including :

LURIA, SOLOVEITCHIK, KATZENELLENBOGEN, GINZBURG, KLATZKIN, SHACH,
ROZOVSKY, RAGOLER / MAGID, RIVLIN / MAGID, POUPKO / KAGAN [Chafetz
Chaim], ORELOVICH, BISHKO, BLOCH, GORDON, GRODZENSKY, KOOK / KATZ /
MAGID, et al.

This is good news for all Litvak and Rabbinic researchers. A recently
translated death record for Malka Hinda [bas HaRav Chaim Ozer]
GRODZINSKY answers some previously unresolved questions about Malka,
and possibly raises more questions. As the daughter of the leader of
pre-Shoah Litvak Jews, this translation should have broad interest.

NONE of these records are available presently without membership in a
District Research Group. Now is a great time to join one or more
District Research Groups. Not only for exclusive access to recently
translated records, but also because there is a Dollar for Dollar
matching pledge that will expire concurrently with the 2014 calendar
year charitable deduction deadline. None of the above is tax advice.
Please consult a tax professional for advice applicable to personal
circumstances.

Re: All Russia 1897 Census and the Latvia Deaths Database #latvia

The "image" is the page in the database (although not always the page
number that appears on the page). When you get into the database on
Raduraksti, the top-right corner of the page says 1/32. Change the 1
to a 23 and press the enter/return key on your keyboard.

If that does not work, go to
http colon slash slash img1 dot lvva-raduraksti dot lv slash rabinati
slash 005024-0002-000597 slash LVVA-005024-0002-000597-0023-M3 dot jpg
[or http://tinyurl.com/nv6wlmj --Mod.]

(I have a personal website www dot competitivegenealogy dot info slash
VitalRecordsofJewsinLatvia dot html [or http://tinyurl.com/pq9ynhl
--Mod.] that links directly to images of the individual pages, but the
Latvian archives considers that hacking and will not let Jewishgen do it.)

You should see a page where the left column is blank and the next
column has the numbers 42, 43, 44, 45, and 46. This means that
everyone listed is the same gender. If they were not, then the
numbers for one gender would be in the left column and the numbers for
the other gender would be in the next column.

The Latvia Deaths database on Jewishgen says the record you want is
record number M42. This means the record you want will have a 42 in
the column for males (in this case, the second column >from the left).
So the record you want is the first one on the page (the one with a
42).

You will notice that the image seems to be a book open with two facing
pages visible, each with the left column blank and the next column
numbered 42 to 46. Both pages have the same information. The left
hand page is in Russian. The right hand page is in Yiddish (using
Hebrew letters). The numbers should be the same; only the non-numeric
text should be different.

I also notice that the dates don't seem match with the Latvia Deaths
database on Jewishgen.

District Research Group. Now is a great time to join one or more
District Research Groups. Not only for exclusive access to recently
translated records, but also because there is a Dollar for Dollar
matching pledge that will expire concurrently with the 2014 calendar
year charitable deduction deadline. None of the above is tax advice.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Treasure trove of recent translations by District Research Groups #general

Ezra Magid
 

Shalom All

Very happy to report that I found a treasure trove of archive records
recently translated by the Kaunas, Panevezys, and Vilnius District
Research Groups.

These records also corroborate other evidence of MAGID family Rabbis
that learned and/or accepted work in:

Poland, Latvia, Belarus, Galicia, Russia, Ukraine, Bessarabia, and Romania.

Additional Y Chromosome DNA test results are pending to confirm
relation to the following present day MAGID surname variants:

MAGDEN, MAGEDOWITZ, MAGIDA, MAGIDOVICH, MAGIDOWITZ, MAGIT, et al.

I found the death record for Meir MAGID, 1835 Snipiskis - 11/14/1913
Vilna. Meir was a son of Sholom Israel MAGID and a brother of Hillel
Noach "Steinshneider" MAGGID, author of "Ir Vilna". I previously
wondered whether Meir survived to see Hillel's son, Prof. David,
continue the MAGID family genealogical research and writing,
e.g., "Ir Vilna, vol2" (published posthumously) and "Toldos Mishpacha
Ginzburg".

Prof. David and many MAGID mishpacha died of starvation during the
siege of Leningrad. Prof. David was almost finished translating
RAMBAM's "Yud Daled" >from the original Arabic when he died. David's
library, including many personal letters >from Bialik, Sholom Aleichem,
and his friend and colleague Sakharov, remain in the collection of The
Oriental Museum in St. Petersburg.

Hillel's gf was "Maggid Tzedek", Rav Phineas MAGGID. 60+ manuscripts of
his books and speeches are also held by the Oriental Museum in St.
Petersburg. Rav Pinchas was the first son of my ancestors Rav Yehuda
Aryeh Leib and Rivka [KATZENELLENBOGEN] MAGID. Their descendants
presently live in every inhabited continent.

I'm overwhelmed with the number and quality of translations that I've
already found for relatives in my tree, in the Kaunas, Panevezys, and
Vilnius District Research Group translations ( http://goo.gl/6O33jP ).
I've also found hundreds of records for other RABBINIC families in my
tree that married with MAGID including :

LURIA, SOLOVEITCHIK, KATZENELLENBOGEN, GINZBURG, KLATZKIN, SHACH,
ROZOVSKY, RAGOLER / MAGID, RIVLIN / MAGID, POUPKO / KAGAN [Chafetz
Chaim], ORELOVICH, BISHKO, BLOCH, GORDON, GRODZENSKY, KOOK / KATZ /
MAGID, et al.

This is good news for all Litvak and Rabbinic researchers. A
recently translated death record for Malka Hinda [bas HaRav Chaim Ozer]
GRODZINSKY answers some previously unresolved questions about Malka,
and possibly raises more questions. As the daughter of the leader of
pre-Shoah Litvak Jews, this translation should have broad interest.

NONE of these records are available presently without membership in a
District Research Group. Now is a great time to join one or more

Immigration to the US from Eastern Europe #general

Anne Kenison
 

I recently posted a query about how people leaving Romania got to
their departure ports. I got many interesting replies.

I would like to ask the same question about Jews leaving the
Litvak areas of the Russian Empire (Lithuania and Belarus, in
particular). The port cities >from which the emigrants departed
for the US, e.g., Hamburg, were distant >from the towns of Eastern
Europe. Were there trains? Did they walk? Were there established
networks? Movements unique to those areas? Any insights would be
appreciated.

Thank you.

Re: Immigration to US from Romania #general

Dear Genners,

Thank you to the many people who responded to my query. I tried to
respond to everyone individually. If I missed anyone, please accept
this as my thank you.

Walking and traveling by train were the two basic answers, but with
many variations, such as:

Horse cart >from village to train station.

The "rich" Jews took the 3rd class train. The others walked.

Some stayed in the port cities after they arrived to earn money for
the ship.

Perhaps most interesting were references to "fusgeyers." Google it
and you will find several very interesting and informative articles
about groups of walkers, a movement, really, who walked to their
ports educating people along the way about the horrible living
conditions of Jews in Romania at the time.

Again, thank you. Genners love to share what they know, and we all
learn so much >from each other as a result!

This was so helpful to me that I plan to post a similar query about
travel >from Litvak areas of the Russian Empire, in case there is
something unique like the Romanian fusgeyers.

Best regards.
