The Kremenets Shtetl CO-OP/Kremenets District Research Group is pleased
to announce that the following records have been translated and added to
the searchable Kremenets Concordance Database Index
https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Kremenets/web-pages/database/krem_search_frm.html
[or https://tinyurl.com/y73och7h --Mod.]

--Shumsk Births, 1897, 1902, 1905, 1908-1913, 1916-1917, 1920-1936
--Pochayev Births, 1891-1936
--Shumsk Marriages, 1883-1891, 1923-1926, 1935

spreadsheets on our Contributors Site (available to those who have
donated money [in any amount], documents, or services during the

JewishGen's Yizkor Book Project

The Bloch Sefer Torah #southafrica

Eli Rabinowitz
 

The recently completed roots trip to Cape Town >from Israel by Beverly
Saevitzon Jacobson and her children precipitated a search for the Sefer
Torah her great grandfather, Aphraim Bloch, donated to Highlands House
retirement home back in 1948.

The last time it was seen by a family member was by Beverly's
brother, Richard Shavei Tzion in 1998.

Read more about this success story, the research tools used and
documents found that helped locate the Sefer Torah, and bring the family
together to honour the memory of their ancestors.

This post includes current photos of the shul at Highlands House.

Looking for SHVARTSBERG family from Ivenets, Belarus #general

boris
 

The family name may have been spelled SHVARTSBERG or another 5-6 ways.

One member of the family was Leib, b. Shlomo, SHVARTSBERG, b. 1922 in
Ivenets. After the war, he lived in Baranovichi where he was arrested by
the KGB and sentenced to 10 years of hard labor.

I do not know if he survived the camps.

Thank you!

"Jewish underground" in the 1940's Soviet Union #general

boris
 

Hello all,

As I am not certain of the accuracy of the "Jewish underground" term, it is
in quotation mark.

I am working on a research paper on the efforts to smuggle Jewish survivors
of WWI out of the Soviet Union to Poland and then on to Palestine and
Israel, after May 1948.

Some of these efforts were home grown, others were-presumably-organized. The
"underground" existed in Lithuania, Western Ukraine, and Western Belarus (my
own father who was stationed in Western Ukraine in 1945 was offered to
smuggled him out but he could not bear the thought of never seeing his
family again).

I have indirect evidence of two organizations called Briha and Yaguda who,
supposedly, operated in either Belarus or Lithuania.

If any of your relatives left the Soviet Union illegally in the 1940's,
please feel free to contact me directly and/or post a story here. I am sure
it will be of great interest to all.

Happy Passover to everyone!

The STUTTGARTER and STETTEN families from Fuerth / Furth #germany

joelle meyer <joelle.meyer24@...>
 

Hello

Some of my ancestors are coming >from Fuerth in middle Franconia Bavaria.
The further I could go up is Samuel Seligmann b.Isaak born probably around
1770 and married to a Jette STETTEN.
Their son Isaak STUTTGARTER born in 1800 probably in Stuttgart was
married with Bunle Babette OPPENHEIMER and she gave birth in Fuerth to
a Bertha Paula STUTTGARTER married to a David STETTEN (see other message
on the STETTEN family).
I guess there must be a link with Jette STETTEN and Bertha STUTTGARTER
but I did not find it yet. The STUTTGARTERs and STETTENs seem to be jewelers

I have not found any more information other than that on the
STUTTGARTER. If anyone does have some I would be happy to receive it

Thanks and regards, Joelle Meyer >from Paris joelle.meyer24@...
