Shalom,

I tend to disagree with the most learned scholar, JGFF editor, Alexander
Sharon concerning the given name Kisiel. stemming >from the Hebrew name
Yekutiel.

Instead I tend to believe this name is the Yiddish version of the
Hebrew name Katriel which is composed of two Hebrew words Keter
(crown) and El (g-d, Hashem).

I also tend to believe that Sholem Aleichem used/incorporated this name
when he named a fictitious Shteitel of his, "kasrilevske."

All the best,

Name is an Yiddish variations of Hebrew Yekutiel (Yekuthiel) one of the
Moses names which means "God will feed".

MODERATOR NOTE: The JewishGen Given Names Database for Galicia, based on
legal documents compiled by rabbis for use in divorce proceedings, shows
only Yekutiel, and not Katriel, as a correlate for "Kisiel". See

Where is "Reslawa", Russia? #general

Mary Ellen <memsp@...>
 

Dear Jewish Gen,
My husband's grandfather came to NY in 1907. On the manifest he listed
his last address as Reslawa, Russia.
When I "googled" this all I got was Radzilow.
Are these one and the same?
Any help you can provide would be much appreciated.

Russian guilds - gold & silversmiths, and watchmakers #belarus

Karen Amato
 

In the 1858 census for the town of Mstislavl, Belarus, my ancestor is
listed as a member of the gold and silversmith guild. Another ancestor
was a member of the watchmakers guild. Is the watchmakers guild the same
as the gold and silversmith guild, or are they two separate guilds? Does
anyone have information or family history associated with these guilds?
Any sources where I can learn more about them.

Dashev Document Translation and Indexing Project #ukraine

Don and Bonnie Blish <dcatalyst@...>
 

A new Ukraine SIG project, now open for donations, will raise funds for
translation of 653 images >from census and Metrical books relating to the
town of Dashev. To donate, please go to

https://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=22

The images to be translated are:
1) Dashev Revizskaia skazka (census) 1795-1795 GAVO, Vinnitsa,
177/1/1315 - 266 images
2) Dashev Metrical books - b. 1859-1861 GAVO, Vinnitsa, 904/29/95-98
-142 images
3) Dashev Metrical books - m. 1856-1856 GAVO, Vinnitsa, 904/29/94 - 29
images
4) Dashev Metrical books - b. 1855-1855 GAVO, Vinnitsa, 904/29/93 - 39
images
5) Dashev Metrical books - d. 1855-1855 GAVO, Vinnitsa, 904/29/92 - 41
images
6) Dashev Metrical books - b., m., div., d. 1847-1849 GAVO, Vinnitsa,
904/29/89-91 - 136 images

If you are able and willing to volunteer as a translator, the project might
be completed at a lower cost. The project might also be completed more
quickly, as there are relatively few available translators for the thousands
of documents acquired by Jewish Gen and awaiting translation.

Please review the "lists" section of the Dashev KehilaLinks page
(https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Dashev) which contains a section >from the
1851 Metrical book with the birth record of my great-grandfather, Lejba
KHARITON. If you can read that section in the original languages, please
consider applying to become a translator. Even if your translation skills
do not meet the standards required by Jewish Gen for input to their
databases, you may be able to help me with some more informal projects that
will help others in the community of Dashev descendants.

I hope that you will consider donating to this new project. Also, I hope
that those of you with Dashev ancestry will contact me and work with me to
remember this town and the people who lived there. Thank you in advance for
your help.

Getting US Phone Numbers #general

Hi All,

I have finally managed to track down some long lost distant relatives.
However, getting their phone numbers seems next to impossible. Web searches
turn up the usual suspects (spokeo, whitepages, peoplefinder, etc.), but the
numbers are always disconnected or so old that the present owner of the
number has never heard of the people I'm asking for.

Any suggestions?

Hello.

I found the Hebrew name of my anscestor Jacob (Jakab) seems to be
Havaya (×?×?×?×?).
At the beginning I thought I misread the name, but while searching
more pages, I found at least twice more this Hebrew name connected to
Jacob.
I would appreaciate if someone knows what is that name Havaya, and why
is it connected to Jacob.
