suggested new project #ukraine

I think it would be helpful when we use the JewishGen Communities Database
to be able to immediately link to reports >from fellow Ukraine SIG members
who've traveled to the towns in which we're interested. The pop-up window
provides basic information about towns; having the urls to such travel
reports would greatly enhance our understanding of these towns and
connect us with other researchers.

Ron Doctor suggests the following steps that an enthusiastic Project Leader
would follow to implement a project like this:

1. Post notices soliciting travel reports

2. When travel reports arrive, edit and proofread them and prepare
any photos for posting.

3. Give the report an appropriate name.

4. If for a specific town or multiple towns, contact the relevant
KehilaLinks owner(s) and help get the travel report posted on the
KehilaLinks website(s).

5. If for a district, province, or Ukraine in general, post the
travel report for the appropriate area on the Ukraine SIG website.
The Project Leader would have limited access to the Ukraine SIG
Database Manager (DBM) that would allow you to do this.

6. Create links through our DBM to the location of the travel report
and add a brief description of it.

7. Check the website areas to be sure the report is posted properly.

8. Send a message to the List announcing availability of the travel report.

Using the DBM for this purpose is fairly straightforward. Entries are made
in pre-set forms.

Unfortunately I'm not in a position to be Project Leader but I'd
like to coordinate responses to identify that person or a team of
people to handle this. Please respond to me directly.

World War I: Burial of Jewish Victims (Galicia & Bukovina), "Talergofsky Almanac" #ukraine

Marilyn Robinson
 

In 1936, the remains of a few Jewish victims were moved to a common grave in a Jewish cemetery in Graz Vettselsdorf. The Talergofa/Talergofsky Memorial page is at: http://talergof.org.ua/mesto-juden.html. Click on the photos to see the thirteen names listed on the head stone. The names are: FLEISCHER, HABER, HASS, JONAS, KATZ, LITWAK, ROTTER, SINGER (2), STAJER, SUCHER, TIRTIW, WEISSMANN

On the same site, in Russian, there is an almanac (Vol. 1) which contains descriptions, photos, etc. by locations (http://www.talergof.org.ua/almanah1.html). There is also an "Index of Victims" and other information (http://talergof.org.ua/) and an explanation of abbreviations (http://talergof.org.ua/alfavitnyi_ukazatel-pred.html)

Information on Melitopol, Ukraine #ukraine

Alex Girshovich
 

Dear Forum,

For the last few months I've been looking for the information on my
grand grandfather Gersh GIRSHOVICH.

Unfortunately this branch of my family is almost unknown due to my
grandmother's divorce.

The only document in our family archive is a paybook of Gersh
GIRSHOVICH, who was a paramedic in Melitopol in early 1900-s, before
the revolution. No solid reference to his metrics (birth and death
dates and locations).
His son - my grandfather - married Dina NORKIN >from Bobruysk, Belarus,
born in 1895. Grandfather's real name is also not validated, however
he appeared in my father's patronym as Ilya. In reality he could be
Gilel, Eliya, etc.
My father was born in Bobruysk in 1915, and by 1917 Dina and "Ilya"
separated, and NORKIN family moved to a Russian town of Pskov, and
later to Leningrad.
So far all my searches in tens of databases in Russian and English
were fruitless.

I would very much appreciate any guidelines, ideas or hints that can
help me restoring this chapter of my family history.

BR,
Alex Girshovich

Martinov #ukraine

bruce.drake@...
 

One possibility for Martinov may be Martynuv Stary, where some of my
ancesters lived. It is about 15 miles >from Rohatyn. I have seen it variously
spelled as Martynuv or even (seemingly Anglicized) to Martenow.

Re: location of Martinov and Ruzdwiani #ukraine

Yossi Yaniv asked:
"I look for some information about little village named Ruzdwiani or Martin=
ov
near Rohatyn."

Martinov or Staryi Martyniv is the next town west of Rizdvyany.
Staryi Martyniv is located at 49=C2=BA12'N24=C2=BA33E.
Rizdvyany is located at 49=C2=BA11'N24=C2=BA36'E
Google Maps Link http://goo.gl/maps/r5kLK

Prior to WW1, these towns were part of the Judicial district of
Bursztyn which was within the administrative district of Rohatyn.
According to the Austrian census of 1900, Martynow Nowy had 68 Jews,
Martynow Stary had 48 Jews, and Ruzdwiany had 6 Jews.

On a personal note, my great grandfather had the duty of protecting
the bridge at Martynow during WW1.

Hope this helps.

my great-grandparents being killed in Odessa? #ukraine

suhschmidt@...
 

Hello to everybody on this mailinglist

I am searching for information to my great-grandparents Leib STAMMER
from Ostrog, born 1859 and his wife Liba Leiserovna PAMU >from Odessa,
born 1862.

They married 1880 (January 2 ) in Odessa.

It is said they were killed by Bolsheviks (?) because salt had been
found on their ground.

They had 12 -14 children. Many of them left Odessa for Germany, America?
Here the names of the children I found with the help of the rabbinat in
Odessa.
Brana 1881 (Feb. 12)
Rivka 1883 (March 2)
Nachman 1885 (Feb 10)
Pesya 1886 (Nov.11)
Sioma 1893 (Oct. 13)
Israel 1898 (Nov.23)
Dvoyra 1902 (May 3)
Julia ???

Their daughter Pesya (later Polina - my grandmother) gave birth to my
father in Leipzig 1910.

I so much want to know what really happened to Leib and Liba, where they
are buried, how they lived ?

Thank you for helping me
