translation from Russian--ViewMate 75096 #general

philafrum
 

Genners,

I would appreciate a translation >from Russian of ViewMate 75096.
It is a postcard sent in 1914 to Barnett (Boruch) Burstein, possibly
from his aunt, Liba Burstein Udin, who lived in Kyiv . The upper
right hand corner was torn off, probably for the stamp.

Please use the ViewMate form to respond. Thanks.

Pikholz brick walls #general

Steve Pickoltz
 

I've hit 3 brick walls, which I need help in solving.

I have a Israel PICKHOLTZ, born at the Slone maternity hospital in
NYC. That took place on May 21, 1893. On the birth cert # 18810, it
list the parents as (no first name) PICKHOLTZ and Lena PICKHOLTZ
(age 24).

I have a death cert # 20801, for Israel PIKHOLZ, age 14 days who died
June 3, 1893 at the Hebrew Sheltering Arms, in NYC. The parents are
listed as Jokiel (something like that) PIKHOLZ and Maria PIKHOLZ.

He is supposed to be buried in the Mokom Sholom Cemetery, Ozone Park,
Queens, New York.

This is the ONLY info I have on this boy or family.

1---I would like to find out the correct names of his parents, including
last name;
2---Any info about there arrival or whereabouts prior to the birth;
3---What became of them after Israel's death.

Any help would be appreciated in answering the 3 questions.

Origin of name LEDINA #general

Janet Lachman
 

I'm looking for information on the surname LEDINA.

My husband's mother was named Lillian Ledina. She was the daughter of
Haskel (Harry) and Szyla (Celia) Ledina. They emigrated >from Praga,
Warsaw, to the U.S. in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

I have found one person named David Lydynia (with diacritical marks on
the y's), who I believe was a Holocaust victim. I assume that this is
the name as it was spelled in Poland, and that this individual is a
relative, though I don't know what the relationship is. Other than
this person, the name doesn't seem to appear anywhere. Soundex
searches turn up many "Loudons", but without knowing Eastern European
languages, it isn't obvious to me how this name could transliterate to
Lydynia or Ledina. There are too many Loudon's to investigate without
any confidence that Loudon and Ledina are the same name.

According to the family, Celia was born Syzla Zachala; her father was
named Abraham and her mother was named Rebecca. We know nothing about
them, and that name also returns few matches, and no clusters in any
one locale. The family also believes that Abraham died when Szyla was
very young, and was adopted by Rebecca's second husband, a man named
Zacharik.

DNA matches suggest that my husband has roots in Ukraine and/or
Galicia, and these would likely be on his mother's side because his
father's ancestors had long lived in the Czestochowa region of Poland.
I am speculating that the Ledinas were relatively recent arrivals in
Poland, perhaps >from Ukraine, and would appreciate any suggestions for
figuring out where the Ledinas came from.

St. Louis, Missouri, USA, Marriages, 1806-1965 (Registers) Online - FamilySearch #general

Michael McTeer
 

Have not seen this posted. Good news/bad news, FamlySearch does have St.
Louis, Missouri marriage indexes and license registers online. Bad news
is that they are not searchable. (They have a number of microfilm
collections on line that are awaiting indexing.)

It does involve a rather laborious two step process. Collection is
divided into separate male/female indexes and license registers. In some
indexes only bride or groom are included. Some indexes are further
divided by two-year ranges. So one index may cover six years, but one
has to check three times within that index for a hit (of course does not
include surname spelling variants). The goal is to acquire the year and
license number.

Once a possible record (year/license number) is found, then one must
open another collection for the year/license number to locate the
correct registration entry/page. Remember this is just the registry and
not the actual document. Unless the subject was a 'minor', there is no
parental data.  If a 'minor' (depending on time, that could be up to age
21), the person/relationship giving permission is included. For brides,
"Miss" and "Mrs" are used to denote martial status. For previously
married women, maiden name is *not* included. (So if you are searching for
a previously married female relative, then you have to search her
married surname and not maiden name in the indexes.) Information
includes, names of bride and groom, date license issued and return >from
clergy performing ceremony.

Having a ton of St. Louis relatives, this collection has been very
useful for me in finding surnames of wives or first names of husbands or
otherwise aiding in confirming relationships or providing leads to
further search.

If anyone knows of a quicker process, I certainly would like to know. I
have spent *hours* (probably days) searching through the collection.

If previously noted, I apologize for repeat.
