As mentioned in a previous email, in May 2002, I set out with my wife to trace my ancestors' footsteps; to go back to Lithuania and see what remnants of our history we could uncover. You can see my image documentary about this, "The Kovno Legacy" and "Shy Vilnius" together with my other travels at www.imgdoc.com

ZELINSKY and Gorribin? #ukraine

Benjamin D. Garber, Ph.D. <papaben@...>
 

My recent note regarding "Everything is Illuminated" mentioned my interest
in ZELINSKY. This name drummed up a very intriguing link still being
investigated. If others of you are pursuing ZELINSKY and variants, mine are
as follows:

Bernard Zelinsky (my gggf) is an unknown. His son PINCUS (interpreted in the
Mass 1920 census as ELIAS or some such) was a shoemaker, b.1877-1940,
immigrated 2/15/1904 Southhampton to Ellis, and lived in Brockton, Mass
(Plymouth County), USA. Closest I can interpret the Imm papers on Pincus, he
identifies GORRIBIN (possibly GORUBIU) Russia as place of birth. He married
Rachel Dorn (I know a great deal about the DORN side) prior to 1903 and had
3 kids, Bernard (Barney, my gf) Yetta or Etta and May.

Anything here familiar? Love to share data.

Have a safe and fun American Independence Day!

WW ll evacuations to Tashkent #ukraine

Sweetredhed@...
 

My mother's sister-in-law was evacuated to Tashkent during WW ll, although I
don't know the details of that move. I do know that she remained there after
the war, because my mother received letters >from her(she was the widow of my
mother's brother). All I know about her is that her surname was Mackler,
which was my mother's maiden name, and that she originally came >from Krivozer
(Krivoye Ozero) in the Ukraine.

JewishGen's focus #ukraine

Joyce Field
 

I was quite saddened to read Larry Brikman's assessment of
JewishGen's focus. He wrote on July 2, " Now, since the JewishGen
website assumes that most people really only have an interest in the
eastern European countries and so, don't expend any efforts in terms
of finding records in the "stans" of western Asia."

I would like to point out that we do have a Sefard SIG, a Latin
American SIG,an Early American SIG, and a South Africa SIG, and we
would be more than happy to have a Western Asian SIG if a group of
individuals came to us with such a proposal.

Much of what is online at JewishGen is there as a result of user
initiative and reflects the time, energy, commitment, and financial
support individuals are willing to provide. We would not turn down
efforts to focus on the "stans." In fact, we would heartily welcome
them! If Mr. Brinkman can access records in the "stans" we would be
happy to work with him to computerize the records and display the
material on the JewishGen website.

We are always open to suggestions on how to expand our focus. Don't
hesitate to contact us with your ideas and your offers of assistance.

Re: Keidan Vital Records at FHC #lithuania

Dear Sam and Keidan Subscribers:
The records that we have (LitvakSIG Vital Records Indexing Project) and
are getting translated, came >from the Genealogical Society of Utah (Mormons
-- LDS). They were kind enough to lend them to us so that we could make
copies of the CDs for our use.
I have already requested the Keidan records to begin translations as I
have a very good translator lined up. Thank you (Sam) for your generous
donation toward this cause. You will receive copies of the Keidan records as
soon as I get them translated.
However, this effort needs to be a group effort and not that of just one
person. We just finished translation for several towns with many records like
Keidan and it was well over $200 to translate for a town with @700 records.
Please remember that these records are availaable through the Family
History Libraries of the Mormons but they are still in old Cyrillic which not
everyone can read. I dealt with over 50 translators to find 5 who could read
this script.
I'll be happy to correspond (or speak to on the phone) with anyone who
has concerns or questions.
Kindest Regards,
Maria Krane, Outreach Coordinator
Vital Records Indexing, Lithuania

Yizkor Book Project, June 2002 report #poland #warsaw

Joyce Field
 

June 2002 update for Yizkor Book Project

I am constantly amazed that even when we have a "short" month, our
staff manages to produce a huge amount of work. Lance Ackerfeld, our
QA /HTML Coordinator, was away a good part of June; but he is so
well -organized that the work flow moved along at a good clip before
he left, during his absence, and after he returned and pulled it all
together. Thanks to all the donors and translators who submitted
their work early in the month so that it could be htmled while Lance
was away.

In June we were able to get online 3 new yizkor books, 12 new entries
(11 of which were >from the Pinkas HaKehillot), and 11 updates. We
now have 337 books and 419 entries on the translations page,
<http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/translations.html>, where new
material and updated books have flags for a month so you can easily
identify them.

We are pleased to announce that the Jewish Public Library of Montreal
has been added to our database with 459 books, including17 books that
are new to our database. Thus, there are now 1,027 towns in our
database, 1245 books, 53 libraries, and 10,036 library call numbers.
Thanks to Martin Kessel for updating the database. See
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/database.html.

New Books Added in June:

-Klimontow, Poland
-Milhaileni, Romania
-Sokoly, Poland

New entries:

Bukowina: "Geschichte der Juden," new chapter, "The Oldest Societies,
Institutions and Organizations of Bukovina"

-Pinkas HaKehillot:
-Latvia: Liepaja (Libau)
-Lithuania: Plunge
-Poland:
-Dabie
-Dabrowice
-Dobra
-Grocholice
-Konin
-Lyszkowice
-Paradyz
-Slupca
-Weilun


Updated Books:
-Belchatow, Poland
-Buchach, Ukraine
-Dubossary, Moldova
-Golhany, Belarus
-Khorostkov, Ukraine
-Kielce, Poland
-Minsk, Belarus
-Piesk, Belarus
-Sochaczwew, Poland
-Shchuchin (Szczyczyn), Belarus
-Suchowola, Poland

The Pinkas HaKehillot collection contains seven volumes just for the
area that was Poland between the two world wars. Thus far we have
online the following number of translations >from these books on
Poland:

Volume1: (Lodz region): 37 towns
Volume 2: (Eastern Galicia): 18 towns
Volume 3: (Western Galicia): 7 towns
Volume 4: (Warsaw Region): 3 towns
Volume 7: (Kielce and Lublin): 4 towns

You may ask why the Lodz region has so many more translations than
any of the other regions. That is because Morris Wirth took the
initiative to coordinate getting every town in that volume translated
and his efforts are paying off. Any one else who would like to
"adopt" a region can emulate his efforts. Please contact me for
details.

We are always eager to get additional translations of Pinkas
HaKehillot chapters. Our current translations are indexed at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/translations.html> under Regions and
also alphabetically under the modern town name. When you decide to
translate a chapter or submit a translation that was previously done,
please send me an email with the town name, geographical coordinates,
volume and page numbers where the chapter appears, and I will secure
permission >from Yad Vashem. And if you are interested in starting a
yizkor book translation project, please read the information at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/donation/> and then contact me at
jfield@jewishgen.org>.

Thanks again for your continuing interest in the Yizkor Book Project.
I hope to meet many of you in Toronto in August.

A Ukraine SIG Success Story! #ukraine

Dear SIG Members,
I've been searching for the identities of various relatives >from photos in
which they were only identified as "Cousin". You may already know about the
page on our Ukraine SIG website at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Ukraine/Photo_Album/Most_Wanted/most_wanted.htm in
which we can upload pictures of family >from the Ukraine. I sent in pictures
of an unidentified "cousin" & her parents, & today I received an email from
her son!! It has been 23 years since I first began my search, & it looks as
if we will finally be in contact. What serendipity!

JewishGen is an amazing facility! Use it well, & do try to keep it
successful by making contributions to sustain it. I know I will. <g>

I've noticed recently there has some requests information regarding the
Jewish Calendar. I bought an 800 Jewish calendar at a reasonable price and
now even I have the information for everyone in my data banks. The program
is not overly expensive and well worth you investment.

Evacuations during WWII #ukraine

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

My father was born in Kalinovka Ukraine, where his mother's family was from,
though his father's family was >from Litin. While interviewing his cousin on
his mother's side about 10 years ago, he told me the stories related to him
by his brothers how they were evacuated by train as the Nazis approached.
that would make early summer of 1941. They traveled for days, and I mean
days until they reached Tashkent. Some of the family stayed in Tashkent even
after WWII for a number of years.
