Marriage register/info #belarus

Leslie Leader <lleader@...>
 

My paternal grandfather Joseph (Yosef Arieh) Leader was born in Grodno
and his wife was Annie (or Ann) Leader. I do not have the family
name/maiden or birthplace info for her but I believe that her first name
might be Chaya.
My question is: are there marriage records of some description which
might help me find info for Annie? If not, how do I find out about her
shtetl, and her parents? My grandparents were married before they
emigrated to Cape Town, South Africa in 1898.

Thank you,
Les Leader,

Just Completed Trip to Retrace My Family's Journey in 1939-1941 from Poland (now Belarus) via Lithuania, Russia, and Japan to the US #belarus

david manski <davidamanski@...>
 

My father and family were >from Lida, Poland and when the Russians
invaded in 1939, they fled to stay with family in Aishishok,
Lithuania. In August 1940, they received transit visas >from Japanese
Diplomat Chiune Sugihara in Kaunus and traveled to Moscow, where they
took the Trans Siberian Railway to Vladivostok and then a ship to
Japan. They arrived in Japan in January 1941 and then departed for the
US in May 1941.

My wife and I just returned >from an 8 week trip retracing their exact
journey through Belarus, Lithuania, Russia, and Japan. Our trip
included taking the train across Russia and ferry to Japan. During our
travels, we visited their hometown in Lida, visited the village of
Aishishok, the Sugihara House in Kaunus, Port of Humanity Museum in
Tsuruga, Japan, the Sugihara Memorial Hall in Yaotsu, Japan, and the
neighborhoods of Kobe, Japan where my family and other Jewish refugees
lived during 1940-1941. On the Trans Siberian Railway, we stopped at a
number of places, including Birobidzhan in the Jewish Autonomous
Oblast. At the start of our trip, we also had the chance to visit to
the towns of our grandparents in Konskie, Radom and Bialystok, Poland.

We wrote an extensive travel blog on our trip and would be happy to
share it with anyone who might be interested. Also, don't hesitate to
get in touch if you have questions about planning for and the
logistics of traveling in these countries.

Vaci ut (distinct >from Vaci utca) formed the boundary between=

Dear Bessarabers, all genealogical researchers,

I like very much working with all of you for many years. Imagine, our SIG is 6 years old! We did with you
many great projects and continue to do. I want to thank all volunteers who spend their time for the sake
of our group.

Here are several our volunteers on the Wall of Honor: https://www.jewishgen.org/Bessarabia/DCA_
WallOfHonor.asp, but we have many many more people who help us, and I want to thank them
all... they all be at our Wall of Honor.

I also want to thank everyone who support our group with donations and we can run our projects:
getting set of records >from Archives, photographing tombstones on many cemeteries in the region,
inviting people to the conference to share their knowledge with the group and more.

Shana Tova v'Metuka to all of you!

Have healthy and sweet New 5778 Year!

Re: No death certificate #general

Yesterday, I posted a message on the subject captioned above, and today, my
inbox was overflown with more than 40 replies!!! Thank you very much, all
those, who already responded, and those, I'm sure, will respond in days to
come! Thank you!

To summarize the responses, I may say that the majority (about 90%) suggested
Louis died out of state and advised to check archives in NYC, PA, FL, etc.
Many suggested I contact the cemetery office. Some shared their stories, when
NJ Office of Vital Statistics did not find death certificate for relatives.

But also there were a few messages that practically solved my problem. Paul
Levit sent a copy of newspaper NJ death notice. Renee Steinig sent a copy of
Louis' obit. It says that Louis died in the Newark Memorial Hospital after a
short illness. Caryn Levinson and Scott Seligman sent a photo of Louis'
gravestone in the Grove Street Cemetery. Unfortunately, this cemetery has no
office any more.

Again, thank you very much for all your suggestions and information! I
appreciate it.

Sincerely,
