Goldman Family From Kamajai #lithuania

John Wilkeson <jswilkeson@...>
 

I am trying to find more info on my 2nd great grandmother Khava Leya
Goldman. She was born in 1882 to Ayzik and Shaya in Kamajai. I know
Ayzik was one of the 3 tailors but that's about all I know about
him... I believe Shaya may have passed away in Siberia but not sure?
I would like to learn more about Shaya, because I don't know anything
other then her given name and she was exiled to Siberia with my 2nd
great grandmother. Khava married my great great grandfather
Abram Leyba Barkon in Trakai in 1901. Any help would be much appreciated!

Regards,

John Wilkeson

Dear All,
In an attempt to trace my GRYNFARB cousins who lived in St. Petersburg
(Petrograd) 1915-1920, I came across this website. Although I can read
cyrillic, I don't have a cyrillic keyboard and there appears to be no way to ask
them a question: http://arc.familyspace.ru/archive

Does anyone have any solution?

BTW, my cousin Moschko GRYNFARB was a violinist, b. 1888 in Siedlce,
Poland. He and his family survived the revolution in Petrograd and eventually
settled in Stockholm where he became first violinist. His son, Josef
GRYNFARB (in Sweden: GRUNFARB), was also a violinist and eventually became
concert master in Stockholm.

Thank you ALL!

Please don't assume that everyone lives in the USA! Sometimes the references don't

Please Help Read Addresses & Town Names on Shipping Manifest #general

Deborah Scheimer
 

Dear Genners,

Hopefully someone with better eyes than me can help.... I'm having trouble
reading the town names and surnames on Row 20 of the shipping manifest pages below
(please cut & paste the URLs into your browser). My ancestor is Mottel STOLER but
he's indexed in a****.com as Mottel Stoter.

On the first page, the columns in question are:
(1) Column 10 - Last Permanent Residence - Town - I can't read the town name
(2) Column 11 - The name and complete address of nearest relative...-Wife Chane
Stoler but I can't make out the address

On the second page, the columns in question are:
(3) Column 18 - ... Relative or Friend's name and complete address - I can't read
the street name in Boston, Mass, nor the brother's first name (is it Abe?).
(4) Column 29 - Place of Birth - Town - I can't read the town name (is it Siriwke?
I couldn't find that name in JewishGen's Communities Database or in the Gazetteer).

The first page of the manifest is located here:
