Re: Name IDA #names

Dear Genners

The given famine name Ida get out from the Hebrew Biblical name Jehudith (Yudith) יהודית.
The name Ida was used in the German countries in the Middle Ages,
From them it go over to the Jews that live there.
You have a lot of variation of this name ,like Ide,Yte,Yute, and more.
The name Ida have nothing to do with the name Chaike.
Not every combination of names is the same variant of the first of second name.
Best regards

Another great source of information on this topic -- only centered in Detroit -- is "The Purple Gang: Organized Crime in Detroit 1910-1945" by Paul R. Kavieff (2000). Found my husband's grandfather in it. Fascinating. A good read! 

Re: Surnames separated by a small r #galicia


This subject has come up before in the discussion group.  You can do a search on the word "recte" in the discussion group archives and see 50+ messages.

r = recte   It means the correct name, in your example, is Kessler

The archived messages discuss possible reasons for this type of name change.

Re: Cemetery in Ridgewood, Queens #usa

Susan Beecher <s_beecher@...>

Although not that exact part of this huge cemetery, I have contacted the Mount Lebanon part to get information about two people buried there. Ancestry had shown that one was there but with no information. The staff person immediately responded by email sending me the information. My friend for whom I am researching her family called the cemetery and for a small donation got photos of the graves.  I don't know if all of the different groups will be this helpful.

Ostrog is in Volyn Province
Alex Krakovsky has additional Revision Lists for Volyn province for 1881-1883 which includes a detail town listing showing Ostrog starting on pages 69 and 145.  This is a huge file at 1.25GB.  The url for this is:ДАЖО_118-14-0093._1883_год._Дополнительные_ревизские_сказки_Волынской_губернии.pdf

there are also additional list for these years at:ДАЖО_118-14-0093._1883_год._Дополнительные_ревизские_сказки_Волынской_губернии.pdf

There are indeed RLs for Voln province for 1862-1863 but unfortunately no town detail:год._Добавочная_ревизская_сказка_мещан_евреев_Кременецкого_уезда_Волынской_губернии.pdf

Re: Trying to break a brick wall to find living relatives in the US... #general #usa #belarus

I second the suggestion to call the cemetery and try again another day if the person is not helpful.
Finding current relatives has proven difficult for me too.
Have you tried any DNA testing to find current relatives?
Have you tried randomly Facebook friending or messaging people with the last names you are looking for?
How about internet searches for those names?

Zablotow, Galicia 1892 #galicia

Dorcey Rose

In researching my family from Zablotow, I am finding a significant number of deaths in 1892. Was there an epidemic or any other major event that happened that year? I have tried searching but have not come up with an answer. Does anyone know about a major problem that year in the Zablotow area or does anyone have an idea where to research this question? Some of these relatives, both husband and wife died at 40 in1892 and it turns out that the wife's parents also died the same year. Thanks in advance, Dorcey Rose

Re: Given name Ksyel

Shelley Mitchell

JoAnn. It may be a simplistic sounding solution but, if your father passed, do you have a copy of his headstone? It should name his father. A lot of people do that. And if he has passed, a copy of both the cemetery application, the hospital records, and his birth certificate can show the name of parents.
