Horodetz Society #belarus

Elise Friedman <elise@...>
 

All,

I'm wondering if anyone has information about the Horodetz Society in New
York? I just found out >from my grandmother that my great-grandfather was
treasurer for many years, until he passed away in 1972.

My grandmother also told me that she remembers my ggf saying he was from
Grodno. Would it be more likely that he was born in Grodno and then lived
in Horodetz before he immigrated to the US, or that the society was
actually comprised of more than just people >from Horodetz?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
Elise Friedman

names and ships #belarus

I have my mgf's naturalization papers so I thought it would be easy to send
to the national archives and find the ship he came on.

He writes that his name is Jacob Silverman >from Dembova Buda, Russia. He
was 23 yrs old and arrived in Portland, Maine the 15th of September of 1900.

Well, I tried different variations of his name since I knew his real name
was Lasdaisky.

I tried Jacob Silverman or Lasdaisky
Yacov, Yaakov, or Yankel with both last names.
Nothing ever came up.
Perhaps even though he wrote that he came to Portland, Maine - his ship
might have gone to NY or Boston instead.

I thought it would be nice to send away for a photograph of his ship.

Does anyone have experiences with finding ship manifests?

As an immigration paralegal, I can certainly attest
that researching anything in INS documents is never
dull!

For those who would like more background/history on
this issue, I found a good overview on the National
Archives Web site. Here's a link:

Kaunas Guberniya Wills #lithuania

ELGOLD1@...
 

Dear LitvakSIGers:

I am writing to encourage LitvakSIG members to take part the LitvakSIG
project now underway to index thousands of Hebrew and Russian wills >from the former Kovno guberniya that are held by the Kaunas archives. You can support this effort by contributing to one of the relevant research groups (those for Raseiniai, Telsiai, Siauliai, Zarasai, Kaunas, Ukmerge and Panevezys districts).

I have just found out >from personal experience just how worthwhile this
project is. As a contributor to a few of the participating research groups I received the first installment of the index covering the first 100 of these wills, and boy was I surprised at what I found... Scanning the list
I saw the name of my great-great grandmother, Chana Leah MERKEL. Listed next to her name was the phrase "granddaughter, beneficiary." What I had stumbled onto was the will of my great-great grandmother's grandfather
(my gggg-grandfather!) who died in Raseiniai in 1875.

The index entries for this will provided me with the maiden name of
Chana's mother, Feige SHABASHEVICH (I had previously only known her first name), as well as Feige's father's name, Faivel, the author of the will. Because names were given with patronymics, it also provided Faivel's father's name, Leyb (my ggggg-grandfather!). Thus, in a few seconds,
this wonderful index allowed me to add two more generations to my tree.

With the help of other already available resources like the ALD and
various early revision lists, I was able to create a whole family tree, dating back to the mid 1700s, for this previously unknow branch of my family.

Thus, I encourage everyone to get in on this project and help make the index of the entire collection of Kovno gubernia wills a reality. The collection covers the entire Kovno gubernia. The index itself has incredible detail, giving dates as well as names of beneficiaries and witnesses with patronymics, and the original copies of the wills, which
can be ordered >from Kaunas, have even more information. I am ordering
mine now to see what else I can find out!

Good luck!

Box Tax #lithuania

Eitan Levy <moranl@...>
 

I found some ancestors >from Darbenai (Darbenya), <Kretinga area, Uy.
Telsiai, Gub. Kaunas> on a list of people too poor to pay candle tax, and
made some enquiries regarding taxes in Lithuania. I thought the following
information may be of interest to other Litvaks as well.

Candle Tax was levied on the sale of (shabbes?) candles and was used for
Jewish schools and education. The poor were subsidised through the box tax.
The box tax in Lithuania was levied on every pound of Kosher meat sold and
every animal (turkeys, hens, cattle) slaughtered. Poor people were exempt
from box tax.
The following is the budget for the box tax for the town of Darbenai
(Darbenya) for the four year period 1894-1898:

Total Income for the 4 year period: 2400 Roubles
Expenses: 2400 Rb made up as follows:
Rabbis commission in St Petersberg 6 Rb
Wage to learned Jews (scientists) in Governor Generals office in Vilnius
16 Rb
for subsidising candle tax for poor Jews 200 Rb
for the support of the Darbenai synagogue 300 Rb
for the local town dwellers administration 800 Rb
for the accountant 80 Rb
for charity for poor Jews 528 Rb
for the treatment of the poor in hospitals 200 Rb
for the wage of the Darbenai State Rabbi for 94-98
120 Rb
for the debt to the above Rabbi's wage for the previous period
120 Rb
for rent for land for the community (synagogue??)
30 Rb
