Re: Availability of Belarus Records - Surazh #belarus

Charles Lapkoff <lapkoff@...>
 

Since there are at least two of us who are interested in the answer to this
question I will post it here.

from OCT 1 digest message #1 Availability of Belarus Records
posted by David Fox, section 6e lists among other records:

Surazh _ Jewish State School Records, 1855-1877


We were interested in finding out to which Surazh this record refers a)
Surazh northeast of Vitebsk or b) Surazh in the neighborhood of Bryansk?

Can anyone help here?

Thanks

Which metrical books do they have? Budapest? Pre or post 1895?

The following listed email appeared on the JewishGen Digest a few days ago.
For me it brings some major questions about my surname to mind and I would
appreciate any input on the subject:

Subject: The Polish Inn
From: "Paul Altesman" <paltesman@...>
Date: Thursday, 1 Oct 1998 19:59:44 -0400
You might also want to see "Economic Origins of anti-Semitism" by Hillel
Levine >(Yale Univ. Press), especially Chapter 4 and a bit in the
Introduction. A bit >abstract, but still interesting.

Incidentally, he cites estimates that 75% of the "rural" Jewish population
were >principally in the alcohol trade, known as the "Propinacja" (small-scale
production, >transport, and inns often all together). Usually when vital
records use the term >"leaseholder" (arrender) this involves inn keeping and
the alcohol trade. It is a >common (and often not necessarily flattering)
image of the rural Jew in Polish >literature and art.

Some of my oldest known ancestors were innkeepers and original Jewish settlers
in Skaudvile, Lithuania about 1790 CE. The original Jews there operated
roadside inns according to Skaudvile historical documents. Dr. Beider's
"Dictionary of Jewish Surnames of the Russia Empire" gives my surname as:
"PROP" (N) meaning "cork, plug or fool". It is a unique surname, all PROP or
PROPPs throughout the world are decedents of Shimel and originally lived in
Skaudvile. The Skaudvile's 1816 Revision List lists my oldest known ancestor
as Shimel Hirshnevich PROBNOVICH and Dr. Beider must have taken that to mean
Propn in Yiddish which means the aforementioned. (I have never fully accepted
this meaning and I keep searching)

Now I read about a word: Propinacja and I note the similarity with our
surname. I have to wonder if our surname could have been an occupation rather
than a noun?? And if it was derived >from "PROPINACJA" to PROPN then shorten
to PROP. The surname PROP was firmly established by the 1847 Revision List of
Skaudvile, Lithuania.

I would ask anyone who wishes to either reply in private to my email address
or in public i.e. litvaksig to give whatever input they would wish to.

Thank You

Kaunas Archives #lithuania

HankPropp@...
 

It was said shortly after Summer Jewish Genealogy Seminar that a "catalog" of
the holdings of Kaunas Archive would be completed shortly. Is there any
additional information concerning the catalog at this time.

I forwarded, a couple of months ago, several sets of records for the shtetl of
Krakes, I do not see them on the "All Lithuanian Database" nor have I received
any type of acknowledgement. What is going on with the database. These
records where send to me by either David or Davida or both about a year ago.
They have been submitted at least twice using differnet formats.

We could all use an update on what is going as now, such as status on the
purchase of archival materials by different Uyzed research groups, etc. The
information flow has been minimal as of late?? May just be the holidays,
which I hope everyone had an enjoyable and meaningful holiday time??
