Re: Kiliya Jewish Cemetery (Bessarabia, currently in Ukraine, Odessa Oblast) (3) #bessarabia

Hi everybody,

I should tell you that the Kiliya cemetery is somewhat special. We knew
that in Kiliya Jews lived back in 18, 17 centuries and even before... There
are gravestones >from 1820s and some of them are in good condition! We
worked on many cemeteries in Bessarabia/Moldova and here found the oldest
tombstones. I have heard about graves in Bessarabia >from 1700 and even
1600, but did not see them yet.

Here is some grim statistics: 218 graves cannot be identified, and will be
displayed after we finish at Bessarabia SIG / Cemeteries website.
Many of these graves are not very old. The inscriptions was ripped off the
stones, or broken. About a dozen of these stones have a photo of the
deceased!

So far in the main table we have 340 records. The oldest grave recognized
is dated >from 10-Apr-1822! The inscriptions are written in Hebrew and
Russian, and only a few in Romanian.
from that 340 I collected 48 for which we need help >from you - to improve an
image and try to decipher it. 28 >from these 48 do not have names at all. I
hope that at least part of the writings will be decipher and we could put
names to them.

Here are 48 images and the table where to put information and send to me
back
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/mif1wpo5udblt5l/AADWoz2SXzY-HYvNTxq_5rjNa?dl=0

We have to try to save every name of our ancestors who lived 100, 200 or
more years ago.

I hope that you can help with this job. Where are computer, Photoshop
experts?! If you can read even one of the writings, please put information
into the table and send back to me, or you can send information in the email
with the Plot Location, and I will know what you worked on.

Dear Bessarabia SIG:

My father used to play meezela, maize with me too. He came from
Ataki (then called Otick), and left for the US in 1909, at age of 23.
It was the same thing as described in Melody's e-mail >from Israel.
The adult circles the palm of a child saying meezela, maizela, and
then goes up the arm tickling it.

Reminds me a bit of what I now do with my grandchildren with "This
little piggy went to market." As most know, you touch one little
finger (or to toe) with each phrase: This little piggy went to
market, this little piggy stayed home, this little piggy had roast
beef, this little piggy had none and this little piggy cried all the
way home. With the last phrase, you go up the arm of the child,
tickling as you go.

I have just discovered the maiden name of my paternal grandmother,
Raisa LEVENTHAL SCHECTMAN. She was married to my grandfather, Yehudah
Leib SCHECTMAN and may have been born in Moghilev-Podolsky. The only
things I know about her for sure were:
1. She died in 1917
2. She had
six (6) children: David, Avrum (my father- born 1886, died 1973), Elia
(jailed for being a Marxist, married a girl >from Mogilev Podolsky, had
two children in Beltsi, Sluba Leibe, Yitzchak Leib, moved to
Mogilev-Podolsky in the 1920?s), D?vora, Fischel, Mordechai Joseph.

I would be grateful if anyone knew anything about the LEVENTHAL family
in either Ataki or Moghilev Podolsky.

Also, I continue to search for a relative of my father's in Israel.
Though my father was born Avrum Schectman, he bought a visa or
passport or ship ticket >from a Mr. Simon, and kept that last name as
his in the US, which is why my maiden name is Simon. My father's
brother (born Fischel Schectman called in the US Philip Simon), was
the only sibling to come to the US. He made a trip to Israel in the
early 1980's with his wife Bessie, and met some relative. I have
tried to find that relative through someone who has contact with
people >from Bessarabia who live in Israel, but have been totally
unsuccessful. If that rings any bells of anyone in Israel, I would be
so grateful for the information.

Best,
