indexing Polish shtetlach #general

Frieda Libaw <fbl2@...>
 

I've been asking about how to help in the indexing projects. Several of
you have responded, for which I'm grateful. However, I've found a
wealth of information on the internet. Unfortunately, since I have no
knowledge of the cyrillic alphabet or transliteration of Polish, I find
that I haven't much to offer.

However for those of you who, like me, don't know details about this big
indexing project, information can be found at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/

Yizkor Books Available for Belarus Shtetls #belarus

David M. Fox <fox@...>
 

The following information about the availablilty of Yizkor Books was
provided by Ellen Renck. Neither Ellen or I have any financial interest
with the seller of these books. I would not normally post a commercial
message, but I want to give members of the SIG an opportunity to get
Yizkor Books for their shtetls. The list below includes books for towns
not in Belarus, but I did not have time to edit it and I thought that
some of you might have family roots in other countries. The full list is
also provided rather than just the website because many of our
subscribers do not have access to webpages and can only receive e-mail.

If anyone buys any of the Belarus YB's, perhaps you will make an effort
to start a project to get some or all of the book translated and donate
the translation to the JewishGen YB Project. Start with the table of
contents and and name indices.

Belarus SIG #Belarus Yizkor Books Available for Belarus Shtetls #belarus

David M. Fox <fox@...>
 

The following information about the availablilty of Yizkor Books was
provided by Ellen Renck. Neither Ellen or I have any financial interest
with the seller of these books. I would not normally post a commercial
message, but I want to give members of the SIG an opportunity to get
Yizkor Books for their shtetls. The list below includes books for towns
not in Belarus, but I did not have time to edit it and I thought that
some of you might have family roots in other countries. The full list is
also provided rather than just the website because many of our
subscribers do not have access to webpages and can only receive e-mail.

If anyone buys any of the Belarus YB's, perhaps you will make an effort
to start a project to get some or all of the book translated and donate
the translation to the JewishGen YB Project. Start with the table of
contents and and name indices.

There are one or two amusing articles in the yizkor book but how about =
this?
At the top of page 76 in an article about sport in Keidan I translate
"The B-team comprised Yacov Damertsky, Y. Shteinbeck,Ch. Bein and =
others(by the way the son of Chaim Bein is the astronaut Alan Bean who =
participated in the Apollo programme and was one of those that walked on =
the moon)."
By chance a few weeks after reading this the Jewish National Fund held a =
function here in Birmingham and they brought with them as an attraction =
the astro physicist Dr. Jeffrey Hoffman who had been involved in the =
space walk to repair the Hubble telescope. I got into conversation with =
him and asked if he knew Alan Bean. He told me that Alan had great =
artistic talent and had become a professional artist and Jeffrey had =
commissioned him to do a painting. I said to him " would you be =
surprised to know that Alan's father came >from the same Lithuanian =
shtetl as my parents". Surprised, he said, I would be amazed!
He then asked me to send to him at Houston a copy of the article and =
details of the publishers, which I duly did. I set out below his =
response.
FROM: JEFFREY HOFFMAN
NASA-JSC-CB

I spoke today with Alan Bean. He tells me that his ancestors came >from =
Scotland. John MacBean was on the wrong side of the war against Cromwell =
and was deported to New Hampshire as an indentured servant with a term =
of 7 years. On the ship's manifest, the "Mac" was dropped >from his name, =
and the family became Bean. After 1 year,he married the daughter of the =
owner of the farm, to whom he had been indentured. So instead of being a =
servant for 7 years he ended up inheriting the farm. Alan's father was =
Arnold Bean and grew up in New Hampshire. So perhaps the article you =
sent me was, indeed, a "Purim Spiel". In any case, it provided a nice =
excuse to talk to Alan Bean and learn the story of his family. Maybe you =
can pass this information on to somebody >from the Keidan society.

I did in fact send a fact send a fax to Kibbutz Beit Zera which has the =
book in its Keidan archive. I also replied to Hoffman:
Between the years 1600-1640 Calvinists in Scotland were persecuted and a =
number of them settled in Keidan so there might yet have "been" a =
Macbean in that town.

By chance a few weeks after reading this the Jewish National Fund =
held a function here in Birmingham and they brought with them as an =
attraction the astro physicist Dr. Jeffrey Hoffman who had been involved =
in the space walk to repair the Hubble telescope. I got into =
conversation with him and asked if he knew Alan Bean. He told me that =
Alan had great artistic talent and had become a professional artist and =
Jeffrey had commissioned him to do a painting. I said to him " would you =
be surprised to know that Alan's father came >from the same Lithuanian =
shtetl as my parents". Surprised, he said, I would be amazed!
He then asked me to send to him at Houston a copy of the article and =
details of the publishers, which I duly did. I set out below his =
response.
FROM: JEFFREY HOFFMAN
NASA-JSC-CB
=20
I spoke today with Alan Bean. He tells me that his ancestors came =
from Scotland. John MacBean was on the wrong side of the war against =
Cromwell and was deported to New Hampshire as an indentured servant with =
a term of 7 years. On the ship's manifest, the "Mac" was dropped >from =
his name, and the family became Bean. After 1 year,he married the =
daughter of the owner of the farm, to whom he had been indentured. So =
instead of being a servant for 7 years he ended up inheriting the farm. =
Alan's father was Arnold Bean and grew up in New Hampshire. So perhaps =
the article you sent me was, indeed, a "Purim Spiel". In any case, it =
provided a nice excuse to talk to Alan Bean and learn the story of his =
family. Maybe you can pass this information on to somebody >from the =
Keidan society.
=20
I did in fact send a fact send a fax to Kibbutz Beit Zera which has =
the book in its Keidan archive. I also replied to Hoffman:
Between the years 1600-1640 Calvinists in Scotland were persecuted =
and a number of them settled in Keidan so there might yet have "been" a =
Macbean in that town.

The Poet Tzvi Bloshtein
Do not disregard the poor, >from them emanated the Torah
This saying comes to mind when I recall my Keidan friend Tzvi =
Bloshtein.I first met him when I was 15.He was older than me by about 2 =
years.>from bits of information that I have come across I know that his =
father died when he was a young boy. His mother was a baker of bread and =
they struggled.I think he only studied in religion classes. He never =
attended any other school. I do know that the son of the Keidan Rabbi =
taught him Talmud and his relative Dovid Yitzchak Bloshtein taught him =
Hebrew and bible. My cousin who was the same age taught him arithmetic, =
and someone else-the basics of the Russian language.
He was a talented boy and he applied himself to reading, learning and =
development, and by the age of 18 had mastered the Russian language and =
in mathematics he had attained a high level in algebra.
I recall that at the age of 17 he had translated for the first time a =
poem >from Yiddish to Russian which was passed >from hand to hand in the =
town and everyone marvelled at the metre and beauty of the =
translation.>from then he started to write poetry and stories in Yiddish =
that were published in newspapers before the first world war.
We met and went on trips many times. In 1914 he went to live in the =
nearby town of Yanova and worked as a private teacher.
During the war he moved around Russia and continued his writing. In 1919 =
he returned to Lithuania and was an editor on a Jewish weekly( I forget =
its name). He published several books amongst them a Romance. He =
eventually emigrated to South America and finally settled back in Soviet =
Russia-Czernowitz. In the latter years I read some of his stories in =
"Soviet Homeland". The theme-lyrical,life of the labourers before the =
first war, a description of the popular-idealistic revolutionaries.

Although now he is to be found on the other side of the historical =
structural revival of his people I still endorse him as a prolific poet =
and author, a son of Keidan.

Bloshtein, Hirsch
(Born 1895)
Poet Idealist.He was born in Keidan to a poor tailor.At the age of 12 he =
lost his father. He worked with backward children in order to help his =
mother with his earnings.In 1912 he started to publish poetry. During =
the war he was exiled to the Ukraine with other Jews of the town.
He published stories in "Our Life" in Odessa. He translated comedies for =
the theatre "Our Lot". He put together a book of poems called "Rabbi =
Akiva". He worked as a teacher in the Caucasus. >from there he went to =
Minsk and joined the papers (cannot translate) and "The Star".
In 1921 he returned to Lithuania and wrote for both local and American =
Jewish newspapers. A collection of his poems were published in Kovno in =
1923..In 1925 he emigrated to Argentina and in 1925 settled back in =
Russia.

The Poet Tzvi Bloshtein
Do not disregard the poor, >from them emanated the Torah
This saying comes to mind when I recall my Keidan friend Tzvi =
Bloshtein.I first met him when I was 15.He was older than me by about 2 =
years.>from bits of information that I have come across I know that his =
father died when he was a young boy. His mother was a baker of bread and =
they struggled.I think he only studied in religion classes. He never =
attended any other school. I do know that the son of the Keidan Rabbi =
taught him Talmud and his relative Dovid Yitzchak Bloshtein taught him =
Hebrew and bible. My cousin who was the same age taught him arithmetic, =
and someone else-the basics of the Russian language.
He was a talented boy and he applied himself to reading, learning and =
development, and by the age of 18 had mastered the Russian language and =
in mathematics he had attained a high level in algebra.
I recall that at the age of 17 he had translated for the first time a =
poem >from Yiddish to Russian which was passed >from hand to hand in the =
town and everyone marvelled at the metre and beauty of the =
translation.>from then he started to write poetry and stories in Yiddish =
that were published in newspapers before the first world war.
We met and went on trips many times. In 1914 he went to live in the =
nearby town of Yanova and worked as a private teacher.
During the war he moved around Russia and continued his writing. In 1919 =
he returned to Lithuania and was an editor on a Jewish weekly( I forget =
its name). He published several books amongst them a Romance. He =
eventually emigrated to South America and finally settled back in Soviet =
Russia-Czernowitz. In the latter years I read some of his stories in =
"Soviet Homeland". The theme-lyrical,life of the labourers before the =
first war, a description of the popular-idealistic revolutionaries.

Although now he is to be found on the other side of the historical =
structural revival of his people I still endorse him as a prolific poet =
and author, a son of Keidan.

Bloshtein, Hirsch
(Born 1895)
Poet Idealist.He was born in Keidan to a poor tailor.At the age of 12 he =
lost his father. He worked with backward children in order to help his =
mother with his earnings.In 1912 he started to publish poetry. During =
the war he was exiled to the Ukraine with other Jews of the town.
He published stories in "Our Life" in Odessa. He translated comedies for =
the theatre "Our Lot". He put together a book of poems called "Rabbi =
Akiva". He worked as a teacher in the Caucasus. >from there he went to =
Minsk and joined the papers (cannot translate) and "The Star".
In 1921 he returned to Lithuania and wrote for both local and American =
Jewish newspapers. A collection of his poems were published in Kovno in =
1923..In 1925 he emigrated to Argentina and in 1925 settled back in =
Russia.

Re: Shraga Fayvel #lithuania

In response to Barry Spinak's question, I was too flippant in calling
"Shraga Fayvel" the "candle name." Shraga is a Hebrew word (really,
originally an Aramaic word) meaning "lamp." Fayvel is a diminutive of
Fayvush, which is the Yiddish version of the Latin name Phoebus, which
is derived >from the Greek word for "light."

HOFKIN & STUPELMAN from MOGILEV #belarus

Sue Hirsch <hirsch@...>
 

My paternal ggf Rabbi Yehuda Leib (ben Avraham) Stupelman came to the US
(on the "ILLINOIS") in March, 1894. His last place of residence on the
ship arrival card (& his own writings) indicate that he was >from Mogilev.
His ship arrival card lists his destination as son-in-law Leo Hopkins
(which I believe is HOFKIN) since 3 of Yehuda Leib 's daughters married
3 HOFKIN brothers:
Frada/Freida STUPELMAN married Shmuel HOFKIN
Hasha STUPELMAN married Hillel HOFKIN
Feige/Fannie STUPELMAN married Dr. Adolph HOFKIN
Since Leib STUPELMAN's ship arrival card indicates his destination to be
son-in-law Leo HOFKIN (238 Arch St. Phila.,PA); would it be reasonable
that the STUPELMAN/HOFKIN families had ties/relationship back in Mogilev ?
Is there anyone in the Belarus SIG that has come across the HOFKIN name ?
Leib STUPELMAN's eldest daughter Shima/Sadie STUPELMAN married someone
from Mogilev named Belatovsky & she immigrated to the US with 2 youngs
sons (who changed their names to BOLOT/BALAT) in 1901. Any infomation on
the HOFKIN family would be appreciated.
