I just learned, today, that LDS has microfilmed Chernigov records:

"The LDS has microfilmed metrical books, 1875-1918 >from the Chernigov region
which includes vital records. The "author is the Jewish Congregation.
Chernigov (Chernigov district). The following is a link to the catalog
record".

interesting given name #general

I've been typing up a list of names that I had rec'd >from the Odessa State
Archive. Jewish records were kept separate >from non-Jews hence this is a
"Jewish" name but new to me: Eios. The name shows up a few times. The list
was typed up at the archive >from their records. It was transliterated here.
The Cyrillic letters are the "backwards"N O C b.

Your take on this?

Thanks.

Reincarnation? #ukraine

Arnold Samlan
 

In researching my family roots, I recall that there was a belief in the
Ukrainian side of the family about people dying, coming back as animals if they
were not good people. To me, this sounds a bit more Hindu than Ukrainian
Jewish!

Does anyone know of similar folk beliefs that might have existed in the
Jewish communities in the Ukraine or surrounding areas?

Shalom,

Unfortunatelly I can't answer Chaim's question but I can say that my
ancestor, Rabbi Yaakov-Koppel ALTENKUNSTADT (1766-1835), a.k.a. Rabbi
Koppel Charif, who was Rabbi of Verbo (today: Vrbove, Slovakia) was,
according to an old family tradition, a descendant of Rabbi Itzchak
ABARBANEL.

Rabbi Koppel Charif's family lived in Altenkunstadt (a village in
Bavaria, Germany). His father was called Zwi-Hirsh, son of
Shmuel-Zeinwil.

If anyone knows about ABARBANEL descendants in Germany (or other
places places, in the 1700s) I too would very much like to know about
it.

Thanks and happy Purim,

Tomer Brunner, Israel.

All Lithuania Database Search Wishlist #lithuania

Chaim Luria <chaim@...>
 

There are two features which would help a great deal in searching the All
Lithuania Database:

1. To have a separate search field for "town" and "surname" so that a
combination of the two could
be searched without using the free text search.

2. That the search could be limited to data >from a certain date forward.
This would allow veteran researchers
a way to get only "new" data and not get data which was found in
previous searches.

Gnedel,etc. #poland

sbloom@...
 

I believe that Russian Cyrillic has no "H" equivalent, so it was uniformly
replaced with "G"--- the "ch" equivalent isn't usually replaced with "G"---
but the gutteral sound probably wasn't heard when the clerk transcribed the
name, so he just went with "G". At least, that seems like the most likely
chain of events, so long as everything else really seems to fit.

p.s. Take a look at Shea & Hoffman's excellent book, In Their Own Words,
Vol II. on translation of Russian Cyrillic documents (they have many sub
sections on Jewish vital records, mainly >from Poland).


Here's the problem. It's obvious that this is the same Danel Kohn who
married twice, like my ancestor. The dates and towns also fit. But my ggm's
name was Gnendel {shown on my grandfather Szmul's birth certificate as
Gniedla but this Danel's second wife is named "Chendlja".

Is it possible they are the same woman?? I see that in the first record
Danel's mother-in-law is named "Chana", and in the second she is listed as
"Genja" (Danel seems to have married the sister of his deceased first wife
as was common). Were the consonants "G" and "Ch" similar or often
interchangeable in transliteration?

If this is my ggf, I will be ecstatic because I will have names of an entire
new generation of ancestors!
