Re: How do I access the actual image at the Lithuanian historical archive #lithuania

Fanny Levy
 

Hi.  You may be able to get a copy of the record from a volunteer at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City.  The seven digit number in the far right hand box indicates it has been filmed, and provides the film number.  If it was underlined, you would be able to click on the number and access the roll of film.  There is no line (no link), so you need to request it.  If you were able to look at the film yourself, the 6 would indicate that it is the 6th item that was photographed on the roll, an item being a set of multiple records.  1848 is the year of the record.  It is record # 48 for that year, which will help you find the item on the page when you receive it.  I took a JewishGen class from Nancy Holden, who thinks that records cost $5 each.

I don't know if you can access the Lithuanian archive records directly, but I do know the Lithuanian Archives also has researchers, as a cousin of my husband's worked with one prior to a research visit to Lithuania. I don't know what the breakdown numbers mean for the Lithuanian archive.  Presumably, it explains where the record is stored in the library.

Hope you are able to get it!

Re: LIVERPOOL HOPE PLACE SYNAGOGUE Book re 1836 to 1930. #unitedkingdom #records

bermanfm@...
 

Typing error:  Years should read 1888, 1889, and 1900
Whilst writing I wonder if anyone could shed any light on my g.grandfather Robert (Reuven) Lipkin's ancestry.  Born in 1856, in Zagare, Lithuania,  he settled in Liverpool and in 1878 married Leah Hesselberg of Liverpool.  They had 8 children, and he became successful in the furniture business.
Though very active and well-known in the Liverpool Jewish community, the only information I have from his naturalization papers apart from place  and date of birth, is that his parents were Isaac and Hannah.  It remains a mystery as to whether he was related to Rabbi Israel (Salanter) Lipkin,, or in fact, any of the other Lipkins in the world, including the Liverpool Lipkins.   
Although he appears on many Lipkin family trees, nobody has been able to provide any documentary proof that he actually fits into their trees, and all searches over many years have not been productive.  
If anyone can help, I'd be very grateful.
Thank you.

Would you be able to check this document from Bialystok?  It makes me wonder if Josel and Ethel had a child that passed away.  The dates would match and there is a time-lapse between siblings of 1885 and 1889.  Thank you.

Re: North Adams, Massachusetts - early Jewish settlers #usa

Adam Cherson
 

Due to some research I’ve done focusing on several villages in what I call the ‘Barukha Triangle’ (the area inside the triangle created by Lida, Vilna, and Minsk), I've caught glimpses of a Rabbi Dovid Rudnik who went from the Triangle (specifically, Traby) to North Adams, MA in 1884. He produced several children there (who I believe stayed in the N. Adams area).  He then proceeded to live in Cohoes, NY, where he boarded in the home of a family originally from Dieveniskes, so I believe there is a connection between the N. Adams and Cohoes communities, as well as between both places and several towns inside the Triangle. The Rudnik family was a rabbinical dynasty family and R' Rudnik may have been an early rabbi for the N. Adams congregation. Feel free to contact me offline if any of this may be of interest.

I'm pure Litvak on all sides and it was apple sauce all the way. Sour
cream means you only eat latkes with diary meals.  Side note: I have
spent several months in Lithuania over the years. "Kugelis" was
considered a Jewish dish, and it was always on the menu at the Vilnius
State University cafeteria.  It was just like my mother's kugel!  On one
visit I stated with the yiddish writer Gregory Kanovich.  His Lithuanian
wife taught me how to make the real thing.  I will share the secret with
anyone who writes me for it.

I love latkes and always used just salt and nothing else. I was born in Proskurov, Ukraine. 


Re: Schewach family in Bialystok #poland

Hi Mark,

Thank you for letting me know and for your help. Abram ben Aron/Boruch KLATNICKI  was Ethel's brother.  We don't know how Pesza SZEWACH daughter of Iosel is related. Where is  Lopenice in relation to Wolkowysk?  Was there a birth location for Pesza?  Was there any additional documents for Aron/Boruch KLATNICKI. 

I have the immigration and naturalization records for Boruch Schewach.  He was born in August of 1891 in Bialystock and immigrated in December 1910. Boruch's last residence was Bialystok. His father Josel was listed as a relative.  Josef's location was Grodno.

Dear Loryn

My paternal grandmother was Rose (Risha) Schewachs 1884-1939. She came to UK to marry Barnett Cohen (originally Baruch Kunyen) who I believe was a cousin and came from Vitepsk area. Her father was Yitshak Dov Ber Schuewachs. Rose had a sister Kayla who also came to UK and married and a brother whose name I do not know. 
Do these names mean anything to you.

Re: What's a Cutter? #usa #general

My grandfather and his brother-in-law had a tailoring business that was somewhere between completely hand-made and off-the-rack pre-made.  My grandfather Sigmund SEGAL in Parkesburg, PA measured a man, then let the customer pick what material and what styles of sleeve, body, etc.  The choices were picked up by Abraham BARMACH, who lived in Philadelphia.  The suit was assembled in a shop in Philadelphia and sent back to Parkesburg.  The time period was 1901 to 1909, when Sigmund died (age 29) and the business was closed.  I have their business card, which Sigmund's sister kept and passed down, until it came back to me.  Abe's grandson knew about the business and explained the details,  Sigmund's daughter (my mother) never knew any of this, because he died when she was just two.  She had no memories of her dad, and she died before I learned of his trade.

I listened to a talk by Michael Hoberman, a professor at Fitchburg State in Massachusetts. He gave a talk, and has written a book on Jews of rural New England. Perhaps you can find the book, or even contact him.
