R' Yisrael Nachman ben Yosef of Ostrov 19th cent. #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My ancestor, R' Yisrael (Nachman) ben (son of ) Yosef lived in Ostrov
(Ostraha) during the 19th cent. and came eventually to Tzfat and/or
Tveria during the first half of that century. My family lore has it
that his family name was ROSENBAUM but I have no other confirmation.

He was a descendant of the Mahara"l and Zecharia Mendel KLAUSNER via
R' Naftali KATZ (a.k.a. the "Smichas Chachamim").

Can anyone confirm the above presumption that R' Yisrael's family name
was ROSENBAUM. His children adopted the name SCHECHTER as per their
profession (Schochtim)

TIA

Yoni Ben-Ari, Jerusalem

Re: Hebrew OCR program #general

When I was in Israel last I visited the Haganah Archives and copied
several hundred pages into JPG copies. My plan was to convert the JPGs
into text files in order to translate them digitally.
However I have so far been unable to find a program which will do this.
The copied pages are almost all typewritten Hebrew. There are OCR
programs that translate English JPG into text.
I would not call that "translating", but [perhaps] "transposing".

Can anyone suggest a similar program for Hebrew?
I find *Google Keep* and *Google Android Assistant* do
quite reasonable jobs, perhaps they use the same engine.

Slonim area towns #general

bernerfolk
 

According to his naturalization documents, my GGF was born in Slonim ca.
1876. The same paperwork shows his wife was born in "Kafkas, Russia"
and a later document shows a son born in Baki, Russia in 1901. I don't
see a town similar to "Kafkas" anywhere near Slonim in either the JG
Townfinder or the Gazetteer. Any suggestions?

Also, it looks like there are no B-M-D records extant for Slonim or
Volkovysk (the town closest to Baki with a sizable Jewish pop.)...am I
missing something or are they gone?

two photos of grave in Warsaw #general

Paul Silverstone
 

Earlier this year I posted in Viewmate two photos of a grave in Warsaw,
speculating that one had been taken aftr the war.

Someone wrote (email now lost) that some Jewish cemeteries in Warsaw
were destroyed, even though a large one survived.
I would appreciate information on this subject, survival of Warsaw
cemeteries.

Looking for a place named Krivoy Ossen near Krivoy Rog in Ukraine #general

Alberto Guido Chester
 

I am still looking for a place (shtetl, maybe agricultural colony)
very close to Krivoy Rog (also named Krivvy Rig ( or Kryvyy Rih,
Ukraine: 47 55 N, 33 21 E) in Kherson region of Ukraine (formerly
Russian Empire).

I am not looking for Krivoie Ozero, though it may sound quite similar,
but Krivoy Ossen.

If someone does find a meaning for the suffix Ossen either in Hebrew,
Yiddisch, Rssian or Ukrainian , I will be thankful also.

Thanks in advance.
