Dr. Veaceslav Stavila, DNA test and Russian Surname #bessarabia

Rachel Pikelhaizen <rachelpikelhaizen@...>
 

Hi guys, how are you all?

So, I've got a few questions:
1. has anyone here ever hired or worked with Dr. Veaceslav Stavila? I
found my surname on his website and I am thinking about hiring him, so
I would love to hear some personal experiences

2. Would you guys recommend the DNA Genealogy Test?

3. For the russians/Russian speakers in here, I recently found out
that my surname used to be written in russian in the following manner:
=D0=9F=D0=B8=D0=BA=D0=B5=D0=BB=D0=B0=D0=B9=D0=B7=D0=B5=D0=BD. Has any one h=
ere come across this in their research?

Thank you all very much,
Rachel Pikelhaizen

Re: Help from British genners : Searching for Pinchas Hersh (Philip) KANO, who immigrated to England, from Poland #general

Michael Good
 

United Synagogue has a burial lookup for their 14 cemeteries at
https://www.theus.org.uk/category/find-grave

You need to enter the first name (or beginning), last name (or beginning),
and the year to do the search.

You can find a Philip Kano who died in 1963 at Bushey Cemetery, including a
headstone photo.

Her siblings were Bertha (b c.1888), Myron (b.c.1897), Rachel (b.c.1903
and a set of twins (b c.1904). My grandmother never spoke of her family

Sending money to Belarus archive #belarus

Steve Stein
 

I need to send about $50 to the bank account of the National Historical
Archives in Grodno. The banks and credit unions charge almost as much or
more than the amount of the transfer. The discount services I have tried -
Xoom, TransferWise, et al. - do not do Belarus, or only allow sending to
people and not organizational accounts. Has anyone found an inexpensive way
to do this? Thanks.

Yom Ha'Atzmaut 5778
April 19, 2018

Dear JewishGen Family,

In honor of Yom Ha'Atzmaut, and the 70th birthday of the State of Israel,
here are links to a few articles contained in various Yizkor Books that
JewishGen has translated. They contain first-hand accounts of the dreams,
yearnings, desires, and hardships that people experienced to reach the
land of Israel.

(1) Plonsk, Poland: "My Youth in Plonsk" - by David Ben-Gurion.
https://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/plonsk/plo031.html
This article >from the Plonsk, Poland Yizkor Book was written by the first
Prime Minister of Israel, and describes, in great detail, his desire to
embrace the Hebrew language, and to live in Israel >from a young age.

(2) "I Made Aliyah on the Eve of the Holocaust" (scroll down to p. 195) -
by Sarah Yasmin (Schwartzblat).
https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/rokitnoye/rok179.html
Anyone who has read the Leon Uris book "Exodus" or seen the movie will
recognize this story written by a former resident of Roktyne (which is
included in the Roktyne, Ukraine Yizkor Book). Sarah writes of the
squalid conditions of the decrepit ships, the fears of people who knew
the chances to reach 'Eretz Yisroel' "were dim" and the British efforts
to turn away refugees.

(3) "In the days of the Second Aliyah" - by Rivka Machneimy (Holodenko).
https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/bender/ben081.html
This article (>from the Bender, Moldova Yizkor Book) was written by the
daughter of Baruch Holodenko (a well-known educator, and delegate to the
Zionist Congress), who made Aliyah at the age of 17, and against the
wishes of her father.

4) ">from Divenishok to Eretz-Israel" (scroll down to page 119) - by
Khenye Harari. https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/dieveniskes/die087.html
A small article (>from the Divenishok, Lithuania Yizkor Book) which
imparts the joy and anticipation the author felt as she approached Israel.

Re: Social Security claim date #general

Sarah L Meyer
 

Barbara,

Notice that on Dec 18 1968 she would have been 64 years old. That indicates
then that is the date that she began to claim monthly social security
benefits. There is no way to tell whether she claimed benefits on her
earnings or her husband's >from this data. But >from census data, you should
be able to tell whether she had been employed or not. If not, which would
be the more common situation, she probably did claim on her husband's
earnings, since social security (then and now) provides a family benefit of
the husband's benefit plus 1/2 of his benefit as long as he is living for
her. After he died then her benefits would be his benefit. If she worked,
then she would have the larger of her benefits or 1/2 of his and at his
death it would be the larger of the two benefits.

I have found a record on Ancestry.com in the database entitled Social

The information includes:

Name: Margarete Block
Birth Date: 12 Mar 1904
Death Date: 19 Aug 1988
Claim Date: 18 Dec 1968

Other records indicate that she was a widow at the time of her passing.

My question is: To what does the "Claim Date" refer?
Is it the date she made a claim on her husband's SS account?
Or is it a date that she made a claim on her own account?

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
