TRUSFUS in Kazan, Russia #general

Allan Blacher <allanblacher@...>
 

I had contact some time ago now >from relatives in Kazan, Russia. They are
Valeri (b 1934), his son Vadim (b 1959), and his son Yevgeni (b 1986)
all with the surname TRUSFUS.

Their email addresses are no longer valid and I'm trying to find some way
of getting a current email address for any one of them. One possibility
might be that someone else on this board has a living relative or some
other live contact in Kazan who might be able to help.

If you have any good ideas, do please let me know.

Many thanks
Allan (Blacher)

Hello,

If you had a relative named Szlama (Shlomo) Kenigsman who lived in Lodz,
Poland in the 1920s, I have posted a photo taken of him, his wife, and
two young children, in 1929. He gave the photo to my grandmother before
she left for America, so that she would remember her friends.

Would like to find information about my paternal great-grandparents #general

Richard Krasner
 

Dear Jewish Genners.

I would like to find information about my paternal great-grandparents,
Moshe and Frieda KRASNER, >from Tiraspol. Their oldest sons, Melech and
Yankel (my great-uncle Morris and my grandfather Jack) came to the US
in January and November 1911, respectively.

I don't know my great-grandmother's maiden name, and the Russian-born
cousins of my father and their children and grandchildren, may be in
Russia, Israel or the US, but I have no way of contacting them,
or know who they are.

We met some of them twenty-one years ago in NY, but never developed a
close relationship, and my father's older brother died more than ten
years ago.

I want to know if the name 'TOKAR' appears in the family, as most
likely, my great-grandmother's maiden name. I know they were cousins
of my grandfather, but do not know the connection.

I have connected with several members of the US family here through
Facebook, and some live not that far >from me in Florida. Yet, none of
them know the relationship to the Krasner family I am from.

I will say that one of the Tokars married an actress who was well-known
for her brief role on a 1950's TV series based on a comic book superhero.
He was also in radio and the movies, and directed a major 1950's
family-based situation comedy.

Thank you in advance.

Richard Krasner
Boynton, Beach, FL

[MODERATOR: Wikipedia has a listing for Richard Tokar, director of 93
episodes of "Leave It To Beaver", and husband of Phyllis Coates, who
played Lois Lane in "The Adventures of Superman".]

Names of Persons (i.e. the Index) for Encyclopaedia of Jewish Communities: Slovakia #galicia

Madeleine Isenberg
 

While this message has been forwarded to Hungarian-SIG and
Czech-Austria SIG, people also migrated >from various places in Galicia
into Slovakia, so I thought this would be of interest to you folks also.

To all those with an interest in towns in Slovakia, I undertook a very
lengthy and difficult project to translate and make available on-line the
names of people who might appear in the Pinkas Hakehilot,
Encyclopaedia of Jewish Communities: Slovakia. This is the home page
of this Yizkor Book:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/pinkas_slovakia/pinkas_Slovakia.html

The Pinkas Hakehilot, Encyclopaedia of Jewish Communities: Slovakia as
written in its Hebrew version has almost 600 pages and covers over 260
communities. What is written about each of these communities varies
in length. The names of many people appear and may show up in more
than one of these communities.

In many instances since the writers transliterated names into Hebrew
we did not know what the original spelling of the name was and it has
been difficult to "reverse engineer" back to the original spelling of the
name. I have devoted much time and effort to try and determine the
best spelling of that original name. If errors have been made, my
apologies, but if researchers can provide corrections, please contact
Lance Ackerfeld (lance.ackerfeld@gmail.com) so modifications can be
made.

Other things to note: Sometimes references have been made to people
who did not at the time have family names at all. If they were known by
a single first name, these names are listed in parentheses, as example,
(SHIMON), (IZAK/YITZCHAK), or in the case of a king, it might appear as
(HABSBURG). Since many given names appeared to be "Biblical-type"
names, it was not clear if there was a direct translation to another
European version. For instance, someone with a Hebrew name of
Mordechai, might have been a Marcus, Markus, or Marek. In many
instances we simply don't know. So in searching for such names, it helps
to be alerted to these possible variations.

The index of names is presented in two versions:

1. As listed originally per the Hebrew alphabet in the book, but
arranged alphabetically within that Hebrew letter. The most problematic
would be names listed under "Alef" since corresponding secular names
could begin with A, E, I, O, or U.

2. As sorted and listed simply according to the English alphabet. To
view this version, there is a PDF
< http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/pinkas_slovakia/files/PinkasSlovakia_IndexOfNames_EnglishAlphabet.pdf >
It is in very small print, so use the tools that let you increase the size to
enable better viewing.

Page numbers, i.e. "Page reference number," refers to the page of the
town within the Encyclopedia. Occasionally, the index included the name
of the town as well as the page. Often this was to distinguish among
people with the same name, but >from different towns. If no town is
listed, check
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/pinkas_slovakia/Slo065.html
to find which town would be the most likely.

Note: The page numbers in the rightmost column, starting with 569,
are the numbers of the pages in the Hebrew version of the names index.
This might only be important if someone wants to check the Hebrew
version to know how the name was written in Hebrew.

It is our hope that people researching names >from these Slovakian
towns will then be encouraged to help with the translation efforts of
the remaining (as of July 13, 2014) 240 towns.

Happy Hunting!

Ask the Experts: A Panel on the Geography, History, and Culture of Bessarabia / Moldova - July 30, 10:30-11:45am #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear Researchers,

I want to invite you to a special session at the conference, where you can
participate, even if you are not coming to Salt Lake City...

Wednesday, July 30, 10:30 AM - 11:45 AM
Ask the Experts: A Panel on the Geography, History,
and Culture of Bessarabia / Moldova
Yefim Kogan - moderator
There are many complex questions of geography and history a genealogist,
whether a beginner or an expert, may encounter in the search for family
records. In this panel you will get help >from a knowledgeable group of
experts who have lived, traveled, and conducted research in the
Bessarabia/Moldova region. You will learn what is new at Moldovan Archives;
what Internet sources for genealogical research in Bessarabia exist
throughout the world and how to access them; and much, much more.

You probably know by now that our ancestors did not live in one place, but
move around, sometimes Bessarabian Jews end up in Galicia or Volynia or
Romania to work or to marry. You can ask "migration" questions if you want,
but please try to do it in advance.

Moderator: Yefim Kogan.
Panelists: Alla Chastina (Kishinev, Moldova); Alex Denisenko (Lviv,
Ukraine); Terry Lasky (USA).

Please submit written questions in advance to the moderator
(yefimk@verizon.net). The panel will choose questions that hold the most
interest to the greatest number of researchers. Audience at the session will
be invited to ask questions, too. I would encourage you to participate in
this session.
