Records Access <recordsaccess@...>
 

Library and Archives Canada announced it completed the digitization of
620,000 World War I personnel files-30 million images-- marking Canada's 100
days. August 8, 1918 is known as the beginning of Canada's 100 days, "when
the Canadian Corps spearheaded attacks that became known as the Battle of
Amiens, a major turning point that led to victory in the Great War and the
Armistice of November 11". This marks the centennial of the end of the first
World War. To read more about this see:
http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/news/Pages/2018/First-World-War-database-completed.aspx

Included in the database are files of the Canadian Expeditionary Force
(CEF)-Soldiers, Nurses and Chaplains; non-permanent active militia files,
Imperial War Service Gratuity Files and more.

Re: Trying to determine a town name on a ship's passenger list #general

Mark Goldstein posted cropped images of town names in Russia from
Hamburg departure and New York arrival manifests for Israel GARFINKEL
in 1913 asking for the town of origin.

Towns that were in Russia before WWI are now in various countries
including Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Poland, Ukraine, Moldova and,
less likely, Russia.
When trying to identify an unknown ancestral town, be sure to obtain
all possible family documents >from Ancestry.
Search JewishGen Gazetteer by distance and direction (or by radius)
from a known location.
When trying to decipher handwriting, the entire page and the town name
in the index are helpful.

The indexed town names for last residence and place of birth are Buter
and Ruyans, Russia.
The passenger's naturalization documents say he was born in Rouzani,
Russia and last foreign residence was Byten, Russia. His WWII draft
registration lists birth place Rozana, Russia.

A search in JewishGen Gazetteer results in the significant Jewish
community of Byten, Belarus, in Slonim district, Grodno Gubernia,
Russian Empire before WWI and lists the nearby Jewish community of
Ruzhany 26 miles W.

Re: Slonim area towns #general

Sherri Vendetti asks about "Kafkas" and "Baki" in Russia, 1901. "Kafkas"
means Caucasus in Russian. Before the Russian Revolution, one of the
gubernii (provinces) in the Caucasus had its capital at Baku, now the
capital of Azerbaijan. The Azeri language name for Baku is Baki. This
area became part of the Russian Empire in the early 19th century.

I am still looking for a place (shtetl, maybe agricultural colony)
very close to Krivoy Rog (also named Krivvy Rig ( or Kryvyy Rih,
Ukraine: 47 55 N, 33 21 E) in Kherson region of Ukraine (formerly
Russian Empire).

I am not looking for Krivoie Ozero, though it may sound quite similar,
but Krivoy Ossen.

If someone does find a meaning for the suffix Ossen either in Hebrew,
Yiddisch, Rssian or Ukrainian , I will be thankful also.
I don't where this place is, but in Russian osen' means autumn.

ZECHMAN-ALAND genealogy #general

Sheldon Dan <sheldan1955@...>
 

I am trying to research the connection of a branch of my family to a
family that was supposed to be related to them.

Joseph Abner ZECHMAN (1877-1952) was born in Taurage, Lithuania, the
same place as a number of branches of my family. He married Julia
HARRIS (1879-1956) in 1900 in Detroit. They had four children: Leon,
born in 1901; Selma, born in 1903; Beulah, born in 1905; and Manuel,
born in 1909.

I read a letter >from our family genealogist to Beulah. She asked
about Robert ALAND of Birmingham, Alabama, a cousin of Joseph Abner.
She recalled that his wife and daughter often visited Detroit when she
was a girl. She also mentioned that the Alands were well-known in
Birmingham and the family has a department store there.

I believe that Beulah is referring to Robert ALAND (1882-1947). He
married Rebecca OLIM (1885-1954) in 1905 in Birmingham. They had
seven children: Julian, born in 1906; Leon, born in 1907; Celia,
born in 1909; Emanuel, born in 1912; Louise, born in 1916; Ralph,
born in 1919; and Jack, born in 1922. Beulah must be referring to
Rebecca and either Celia or Louise visiting in Detroit.

If Beulah is right, then one of Joseph's parents and one of Robert's
parents are siblings. Joseph's parents were Wolf Jacob ZECHMAN
(1847-1916) and Ada Dina LUNTZ (1842-1932). Robert's were Louis
ALAND (1839-1915) and Rachel GOLDSTEIN (1861-1918). I don't think it
likely that Wolf Jacob would be the sibling, but Ada Dina might be
Louis' sister and the name might have been a maiden name that changed
from Aland.
In a reply to Beulah, Walter Cohen, the genealogist, said that he
contacted Julian Aland, the son of Robert. Robert was aware that the
Alands and Zechmans are cousins, but does not know how they are cousins.
He recalled being in Chicago many years earlier and being taken to lunch
by a couple of Zechmans.

So what I would like to know is the following: First, I would like to
know more about the Aland family of Birmingham; I live in Memphis, and
this is the first time I have heard of them. Also, if Joseph Abner
Zechman and Robert Aland are indeed cousins, there must be siblings and
therefore a common ancestor. I would appreciate anyone giving me any
information about this.
