Mandelkorn and Raduraksti #latvia

Arlene Beare
 

Original message >from Stephen Glazer in Jerusalem
Original question
I am interested in accessing the birth certificate of Nisan/Niko/Nikolai
Chaim MANDELKORN, born in Dundaga, Latvia in 1907, or possibly 1908-09.
Dundaga is a village of less than 2,000 people in the Courland region of
west Latvia. Mandelkorn's father may have been Rafael. In his teens,
Mandelkorn moved to Riga and in 1933 he immigrated to Mandatory Palestine,
where he became a policeman in TelAviv. He died in Tel Aviv in 1944,
apparently without any family. I am looking for family connections as well.
Does anyone have any idea as to how I can obtain birth certificates for
Mandelkorn and any of his family?

---
Stephen Weinstein has directed Stephen Glazer's attention to the connection
to the Raduraksti site(site of the Latvian State Historical Archives)
Jewishgen have done a wonderful job connecting names to the digitised images
on the site and this is an excellent new tool for our research.

The only problem is that the site is not easy to negotiate and even when you
know how to do it the records are often difficult to read . You will note
that Chaim is also known as Nisan/Niko and Nikolai. I had a look on page 7
and could not read what was written there and even found it difficult to
discern the text language.

The archivists are very familiar with all the records and if Stephen can
give them enough information about the family such as dates and names they
will be able to see which Mandelkorns belong to each other. He is looking
for family connections. There are over 20 Mandelkorns in the Birth Records
on Jewishgen all >from the Courland area.

I would caution all researchers about assuming that records belong to their
family unless all the details on the record accord with known facts.

Re: Latvia Birth Records Database Launched #latvia

Robin Aaronson <grandvizier51@...>
 

As it happened, I was searching the Latvia Database the day before the
message below was circulated. I was amazed to find 6 new family
members!

We knew that my gg grandfather, Shlomo Hoppen, >from Linkuva, had four
sons. My recent search discovered a daughter as well. Named Yenta, she
gave birth to a son, Shlomo Elkhonon Berelovich, in Bauska in 1877.
The father was Beinesh Berelovich, son of Josel, >from Posvol.
Apparently, he died in an accident in 1886, aged 42.

We also knew that my grandfather, Samuel Wolf Hoppen (later Aaronson),
had a half sister, Enta Basha. I found that she had four children,
also in Bauska, named Feiga (b 1893), Lea (1896), Hirsh Vulf (1899)
and Gnesa (1902). The father was Abram Feitelson, son of Hirsh. There
was a big factory in Bauska, owned by the Feitelman family, but the
surname is not an exact match.

If anyone has information about the Berelovich or Feitelson families,
I would be very pleased to see it.

We are delighted to announce that over 62000 births records have been added
to the Jewishgen Latvia Database. This mammoth task of transliteration from
the Russian originals was taken on by the late Christine Usdin, who worked
tirelessly on the project until her untimely passing. Stephen Weinstein
then took on the daunting job of reorganizing, collating and correcting the
material in order for it to be searchable in its current form. We are very
grateful to Stephen, Warren Blatt of Jewishgen, and the late Christine for
this remarkable new resource which will dramatically improve our
capabilities.

Re: MANDELKORN in Dundaga, Latvia #latvia

Marion Werle <werleme@...>
 

Both Stephen Weinstein and Arlene Beare are correct, but for different
reasons. There will be a digital image of the certificate on the
Raduraksti website, as Stephen has mentioned, but the image resolution
isn't teriffic. It is probably fine for most purposes, however.

If you write to the archives, they will send you a copy that is much
better quality and higher resolution - it isn't free, but it is fairly
reasonable, and they will send you a better digital copy via email.
Again, this probably isn't necessary to do, unless the handwriting is
unclear. One of the advantages of using the JewishGen database is that
the results have links to the Latvian State Historical Archives'
Raduraksti website. You'll need to set up a (free) userid (you can use
the English version of the website), and as Stephen Weinstein said, it
takes you to the beginning of the appropriate "Church book", where you
should be able to find the record you want.

DNA Test Opens Up New Mysteries #dna

Alice Collins Plebuch thought she would take a DNA test for "fun" and was
amazed what she found out. The test showed this Irish American Catholic
woman that she was half European Jewish, Middle Eastern and Eastern
European. While she asked Ancestry if they were wrong-they weren't the
results changed her life. And mother didn't have an affair! To read this
