Belarus Sig,Judy, Gerre,
I found Vasilichki on a 1835 Russian map. At that time(1835) it was in
Grodno province(Gubernia) sw of Lida. On map quest it is still sw of Lida
but now in Minsk Gubernia, uezd Lida. Check with shtetlseekers.

Re: Chomsk- what Gubernia? #belarus

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

Chomsk is in Grodno Gubernia, I believe.
A little SE of Kartuz Bereza.

The BARG (Bereza Area Research Group
includes Chomsk in its research area.
Their website is

http://people.netscape.com/morse/barg

Although we don't have much on Chomsk
itself we do have much info on Bereza and
their are many Chomsky surnames listed.

Hope this helps.

Re: Looking for Brest-Litovsk Records #belarus

It would be very helpful to many interested in Brest-Litovsk if you would be
so kind as to reveal how you happened to come across a book on
Brest-Litovsk, which my great grandfather left in 1886.

Also, what is the name of the book and in what language is it? When was it
published? Does it have photos?

Finally, it is customary to list with your surnames researching the places
and guberniyas of origin to be of use to fellow researchers who might
provide input to your own search.

In her message of 9-16-00 Eloise Hintersteiner wondered whether the surname
"Lapidus" could be derived >from the area in Kiev known as "Lipid." I don't
think so. For information about the surname Lapidus, Ms. Hintersteiner should
check Jewishgen's Discussion Group Archives where, unless I misremember, the
name has been mentioned several times and its meaning or origin described.

Jackye Sullins may be partly right, but her relatives may have been in
the army later on. My great Uncle Gedalia Leib Kaplan served in the
czar's army for nearly 8 years (drafted after his bar mitzvah and in
until he was 21!!). When recalled to serve in the Russo-Japanese war,
he LEFT (with the financial aid of the balance of the family) to
Canada, later to Minnesota. Once here, he repaid the rest of the
family by bringing the entire mishpacha out of the Ukraine. But he
NEVER said they lived IN Kiev. (Howard Kaplan)

I am looking for information about a family named Krasne that immigrated to
the Phila. area sometime in the 1890s. It is not my family, but that of my
grandfather's second wife, and I am not doing research on this family with
any intensity at all--mainly doing it for a (half)-cousin who is a direct
descendant of these Krasne's. (Pronounced Krasny, incidentally). I have
not come across any immigration information nor do I have any indication of
where they came from, or whether their name was really Krasne or something
longer. The original immigrant would have been Hyman Krasne. His wife was
Lena, although I do not know whether they were married before or after they
came here. They had 6 children...Isadore, Bertha, Harry, Sadie, Celia, and
Fanny, in approximately that order. (I know this much because I actually
knew all of them!) I believe all of their children were born here (certainly
Bertha was and she was definitely the second oldest.) Other info: they left
this area and went to Calif. early in the 1920s, and one of their children
(Celia) was deaf >from birth--whether genetic or due to a problem during
pregnancy I cannot say.

Do you by any chance know anything about a Hyman Krasne? (No, I have not
entered this name in JGFF because I am really not actively researching
them!)

Let me add my two cents as well. Have read the welcome mails >from viewers and
agree this is a neglected area. So far I have been working on my paternal
side which originates in Galicia and have had no luck with the shtetl of
Rusow(Rusov) not far >from Czernowitz. Now my maternal side came >from Kiev
Gubernia, the shtetl is Belaya-Yzerkov, about 70kms SW of Kiev. Their name
was Rosenkrantz, and the name does not appear too many times. My mgfather
took the whole family to the US in 1909, leaving >from Antwerp and came on the
ship Vaderland(Red Star LIne) ave not yet found the ships manifest fro this
date. My father came >from Rusow, on the same shi[p in 1910 and I have his
ships manifest. Just lucky.
Anyway, trying to find family of the Rosenkrantz tribe. The gfather was
Israel and his wife was Mechly(Mary). They had Chana, Chaya, Dovid, Yussel
and Yaacov. Any information out there would be greatly appreciated.
Wifes family came >from Krasne, Kamanetz-Podolsk. The name was Vinnitsky, but
changed to Weiner when they came here. Came in two shifts, two brothers and a
sister came prior to WWI, and the rest came in 1922 due to two brothers who
served in US Army during WWI. Father of all was Mordke and wife was Liouba.
They owned or managed a factory in Krasne. Again, any information would be
appreciated.

This is being posted on behalf of Betsy Brazy who was unable to post it
herself.

One of my surname researches is my maternal grandmother's branch, the
SIPERSTEINs of Pinsk. Yesterday I received email >from a woman, Suzy, in
Israel asking whether we might be related, as she knows of no other
SIPERSTEINs in Israel. I learned >from her note that she was >from Hotin
Basarabia and survived - along with her brother and parents - concentration
camps in the Ukraine.

Now, I didn't know where Hotin Basarabia was, and the JewishGen
shtetlseeker database was unavailable. But I know 2 other SIPERSTEIN
researchers thanks to the Jewish Gen Family Finder, and one of them traces
family >from Orinin, near Kamenets-Podolsk, Ukraine. While the exact lines
still need to be traced, it seems that Suzy now has many cousins.

Interestingly, she found me with http://www.google.com search engine for
"SIPERSTEIN" because I have a family history website. I'm glad that I've
also registered in the JGFF database.
