Thanks Alan.
How early do these arrival records of the Immigration Department of the Palestine Zionist Executive start? What's the earliest date available?
Thanks.

The Israel State Archives (https://www.archives.gov.il/en) has arrival records of the Immigration Department of the Palestine Zionist Executive. These are in Hebrew and arranged by month and year but aren't searchable by name. For example, the 1923 records for ships arriving at Jaffa and Haifa are at

Re: Daniel Levy out west #usa

Molly Staub
 

I know it's a common name, but 40 years ago there was a Daniel Levy who had settled in Bay Shore, , Long Island, many years earlier -- long before the big development boom. I believe he had a grain store and was quite successful, living in a very large house. His wife's name was Ruth.. I am in contact with his granddaughter, if you think there's a match.

Hi Trudy, This is a longshot, but my maternal side was from Ukraine. My ggf Yishea (Yehoshua) Berenson was married to a woman the family knew as Riva the Midwife. After marrying him, she lived in Krasnoye, Podolia Gubernia, Ukraine.. I know she delivered the Loigman children in Krasnoye between 1892 and 1901.The family said she was quite successful and even lectured at a school for midwifery. Her grown children pictured in a 1904-photo I have are all wearing substantial jewelry..I have been searching for her maiden name for three decades! Might this be the Riva/Rivka for whom your relatives were named? Cousin? Molly

Help with Lithuania shtetl name #lithuania

Hugh Harvey
 

I obtained my grandfather’s birth certificate from the Lithuanian state archives and it shows his birthplace as Vidugora. I’ve never been able to find anything about this place - all I know is that it is probably near Pasvalys and/or Ponevezh.
Can anyone provide any info?
Thanks

Re: Lincoln Brigade and Spanish Civil War #usa

Judith Berlowitz
 

This is an important topic, owing to the high number of Jews who volunteered in the International Brigades.  I don't know of a genealogical study of the Jewish Lincolns, though Sugarman's list can be useful, despite some small errors. I initiated a project on Geni.com which I hope will interest people.  Of course not all those profiled are Jewish. 

One issue to consider is that since volunteers signed up through the Comintern, they went to Spain in defiance of US policy and on return many were victims of blacklisting and other types of persecution.  For this reason, some descendants may not be willing to have their relatives' names or noms de guerre publicized. 

Shelly, here is your relative, listed among the volunteers on the ALBA website.

I believe that Yudel is a nickname for Yehuda. Udel is pronounced like
oodel which is usually a woman's name.

"Levite" or "the Levi" is a designation given only to MALES, not to women. (it is passed down from father to son and originated with Levi, one of the twelve sons of Jacob).
