1874 Snipiskes (suburb of Vilnius) Family List #lithuania

Peggy Freedman <peggyf@...>
 

We have just uploaded the 1874 Snipiskes Family List with Additional
Revisions in 1879, 1883 and 1884 onto the Vilnius District Research
Group Shutterfly site.

The 1858 Revision List for Snipikes is already part of the All Lithuania
Database. Eighty percent of the surnames on the 1858 Revision List also
appear on the 1874 Family List. This may be the key to follow your
family back in time!

While these translations will eventually be publicly searchable in the
LitvakSIG All Lithuania Database, they are currently available only to
participants in the LitvakSIG Vilnius District Research Group. A
contribution of $100 to LitvakSIG, earmarked for the Vilnius District,
will guarantee you immediate access to all translations of records >from
Vilnius District towns (new and old) through December 31, 2020.

You can see a list of these surnames by downloading the file called
“Extracted Surnames” that is freely available here:
https://vilnius.shutterfly.com/

If you would like to help us continue to translate files in the
Lithuanian Archives (and have immediate access to these records), you
can do so by making a $100 donation to the Vilnius District Research
Group of LitvakSIG here:

and click on the icon for "Research Groups for Districts and Gubernias"
and then pick "Vilnius District."

established websites for all three towns as follows:

http://chelm.freeyellow.com/janow.html

The first two are part of the Zamosc network

Lillian CHAPMAN GOTTSTEIN cookbook #general

I have a copy of "Aunt Lil's Famous Tested Recipes," by Lillian Chapman
Gottstein of Los Angeles, California. This copy appears to be her own
copy, since it's stamped with her name and address like a rubber
return-address stamp one would use for correspondence. I'd love to give
this to a member of her family, if any are reading this.

Re: Old Russian town names #general

Peggy Freedman <peggyf@...>
 

Is it possible that the town you are looking for is Butrimonys in
Lithuania? According to the JewishGen Communities Database, it was
called Butrimantz in Yiddish. The Trakai District Research Group has
translated records as early as 1816 for Butrimonys.

Peggy Mosinger Freedman

From: Ira H. Levy <iralevy@fast-email.com>

...(The US tombstone of a relative, born in 1855 in Russia, includes the
birthplace in Hebrew, which has been translated as Voltimantz or Boltrimantz.
I can't find a record for that town under either spelling. Some of his
children were believed to have been born in Kiev)...
