I would love to hear Alex expand on this subject if he is willing.
Where can one find a list of the names that were restricted? Was it
true only in Russia or also in Russian Poland? During what time
periods? Certainly, Abram and Mojzesz appear in Polish records.

Dear researchers,
I've just found on Polish service Allegro.pl (something like eBay) an
auction of the school report for Malka Sznajderman >from Lublin, born
1918.

I thought that maybe someone here would be interested in this
document. There is a big scan on the auction page so you don't need
to
buy it to read it.
Direct link is:
http://www.allegro.pl/item143607007_judaica_lublin_swiadectwo_wyzn_mojzesz_1933.html

Sometimes one can find Jewish documents that are selled on this
service. Please note that I'm not connected to those auctions and I
send
this message only for informative purpose.

Re: austrian military records #hungary

I am not informed about the Austrian military archives, I visited the "Hadtortenelmi leveltar" in Buda and they found a "Belohnungs-Antrag" for my father of the K. u. K. Infanterie Regiment 101 .2 Feldbattelion. By some luck during a visit in my hometown, I saw in an antique bookshop a book "101-es zaszlo alatt" a book >from 1934, with pictures and short (selfgiven) biography of the regiments members. I believe this was quite common. This might be sources.

Again searching on BALBACHAN #romania

Eduardo L. Balbachan <elb@...>
 

Hello, this is the second time I'm posting this message because I think
it could be new participants in this ROM-SIG group.

My name is Eduardo Balbachan and I'm looking for any data about my
ancestors.

"BALBACHAN", "BOLBACHAN" or "BOLBOCHAN" are three interchangeable
spelling of my surname which appear in different members of my family.
By oral tradition of my relatives I know that they came >from Bessarabia
(nowadays Moldova or Romania).
They departed >from Odessa, shipped by the Jewish Colonization
Association (JCA- Baron Maurice Hirsch) on 5th october 1894 aboard of
the steamship"Bosforo" and arrived Genoa where they took a second steamship
"Manilla" and finally they arrived on 27th november 1894 to Argentina where they
settled in two colonies of the JCA.
The original group who arrived on that trip was composed by my
greatgrandfather Mosche BALBACHAN, his wife Kaile ROITMAN
and six children: Haim, Baruch, Selmann, Lazar (my grandfather), Meilach
and Leiba BALBACHAN(or BALBATZAN as they were annotated in the ship
list).
The whole group who came to Argentina in that trip was named Soroki II
because all they were gathered at Soroki (or Soroca, a city of Besarabia
nowadays belonging to Moldova)(I have certain clues showing that at
least one Bolbochan came >from Beltsi - or Balti).
Here in Argentina they lived in two colonies named Akkerman I and II
(which are a part of the great colony Lucienville of Entre Ríos).
My grandfather Lazar was married to Witta ABRAMZON (or ABRAMSON) here in
Argentina. Witta ABRAMZON had also come in that ship (Manilla) in the
same trip, with her parents Abram and Brana ABRAMZON.
I also know that there were some BALBACHAN who lived at Kishinev
(Besarabia)

Re: Slovakian town by name of Vah #general

Thanks to all who replied re: Slovakian town by name of Vah {Vag in Hungarian).
I found it listed near the river of the same name. It only appears as a
three-letter word in the reference so I do not know which town of the same name
it is, but that is close enough as the book dealt with the vicinity too. Another
town I am unsure about is spelled in Hebrew resh-aleph-yud-yud-tzadek. Could
this be Rajec in Solovakia?

Help with translating tombstones needed... #general

Tracy Doucet
 

I am trying to trace my families roots in Poland, all were >from rabbinical
families and originated around Radzilow, emigrating to the UK around 1881.


I am struggling, although I can find records in the UK >from 1881, I can't
find any information regarding the family in Poland.

The names I have are Sara, Saul and Bernard Salomons. I am hoping that here
are references to fathers names on the tombstones. If anyone can help by
translating the Hebrew Text I would be really grateful - I have the dates of
death having managed to work them out but am at a complete loss with names !

I have uploaded the files on viewmate, here are 3 files in total VM8898 -
VM8900 http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html

If anyone has any other suggestions on research I might undertake, I would
be grateful to receive ideas.

Group trip to Lithuania and surrounding areas - 2007 #general

Howard Margol
 

I am organizing another group trip to Lithuania for June 2007. For several
years, I've said that "this will be my last trip." But each year, so many
people have asked me to organize another trip that I extended the trip one
more time. Another factor is, Peggy Freedman will be joining me in the
planning and organization of the trip, which will be a big help.. This will
be the 14th group trip I have organized and led to Lithuania.

The June 2006 group trip was exceptional with 37 participants. If you have any
thoughts about going to Lithuania, Latvia, Eastern Poland close to
Lithuania, or Belarus now is the time to sign up. My previous trip
participants can be contacted if references are desired.

Included - visits to the various Archives, synagogues, ghettos, Holocaust
sites, meetings with Jewish leaders, sight-seeing, guide/interpreters, and
two days to visit and spend time in your shtetl, or shtetlach of interest.
All meals are included (except for one dinner and two lunches), the finest
hotels (new & modern), modern bus with onboard toilet, and much more. Peggy
and I are very familiar with the Archives, the archivists, Lithuania and
the main places of Jewish interest.

I do not organize these group trips as a profit-making endeavor. Everything
is done at cost but in a deluxe manner. My main object is to encourage Jews
to go back to their roots, to encourage them to research their ancestors
and to enable them to see the rebirth of Judaism taking place in Lithuania.

*Important*: This trip is sponsored by the American Fund For
Lithuanian-Latvian Jews, Inc. (a 501(c)(3) non-profit. If there is a profit
from the trip, the entire profit will go to support the Jewish community
in Vilnius.

Peggy Freedman,

Seeking assistance in Ukraine #romania

Hi "Siggers":

Beyond seeking any information about the families of my maternal
grandmother, Zlatta (Golda) LEVITT (born 1900, in Moghilev/Moghilov Podolski
& Avraham (Avrum) DUBENKO, her husband (my grandfather), as well as about
the family of my paternal great-grandfather, Philip KLAMMER (born somewhere
in Austria-possibly, Austro-Hungary/Vienna's area/Gura-Humorului ?!?) & his
son, Solomon KLAMMER, with his wife, Cecilia (Tsipora=Tsephora) KLAMMER
(also spelled CLAMER, in Romanian), I am wondering if anyone could offer any
help with information to help me find reasonablely affordable accommodation
in the Ukraine (the little town of Dondoshani's area or, the
Moghilev/Moghilov Podolski area (Otaki; Soroki; Beltsi-in all of which, I've
had family members born & living)-perhaps (& preferably so) through the
local Jewish community (maybe, in exchange for hosting same family in the
U.S.), along with someone who'd be willing to help me enhance my
already-existing Russian skills, in searching for & researching any possibly
(hopefully!)-found archival information pertaining to my family (along with
understanding it-if necessary).

I'd appreciate any tip/advice & piece of information!

Kindly, do send your ideas directly to my personal E-Mail address (as listed
below) please.

Will be looking forward to hearing >from anyone!
