Dear Genners,
I have just learned that my grandmother's maiden name was GANULIN. Her
family has lived presumably in Nevel not far >from Vitebsk. I'll be very
appreciated to any information about this family and their descendants.

Re: ketubah in 19th century Vermont #general

J&B Davis <bdavis@...>
 

A number of recent messages have stated categorically that
no copies of ketubot are kept by communities ... I beg to differ!

In my capacity (for the past 27 years) as
secretary/archivist/librarian/research officer for the
Australian Jewish Historical Society in Melbourne, Victoria,
I have had access to almost complete sets of ketubot issued
by many synagogues throughout Australia and New Zealand,
dating >from 1841 and continuing up to the present time
(in some cases). Particularly since the regular use of
printed (rather than handwritten) ketubot, bound
registers of duplicate certificates were kept,
with one portion being removed and given to the bride
under the chuppah, and the counterfoil kept by the
relevant issuing body.

Regrettably, in more modern times a large number of our
synagogues have not kept duplicate copies of their ketubot,
but only of the civil certificates.

Re: ELLERT: Lithuania(?), South Africa and Israel #southafrica

There was an Elias ELLERT who lived in Upington for many years; he owned
the Upington Hotel. He passed away in 1968 -- see cemetery list at

http://www.jewishgen.org/safrica/cemeteries/1/index.htm

I would guess that he was about 70 years old at the time. Unfortunately I
don't know any more about his history, but death records, which are
available in the SA Archives, typically list date and place of birth.

Surname puzzlement #general

sandrabergman <sandrabergman@...>
 

Whilst searching through the Ellis Island site online for Morris or Moses
Michaelovitch leaving England by sea for USA, the name Moses Mokoboitch came
up. Could this name be for real? Could it be that an official wrote down
whatn he thought he heard or is it simply illegible handwriting? Would be
appreciative of someone telling me if Mokoboitch is a surname.

Thank you,

Sandra Bergman

My Gm's family is >from Birlad as well. I had a researcher in Romania

a copy of a petition of naturalization and intention for me? I am willing

pretty easy.

I have been trying to get a copy of my great grandfather's Petition of
Naturalization >from the Montgomery County Records Center since early
February when I sent in a check with the exact record number. When I call
they just keep telling me they'll send it and then they don't. I sent it
February and it's now almost June.

I have located an entire section of living family that may be mine and this
record is my last chance to figure it out.
