Re: Where did "Katya" come from? #ukraine #yiddish #russia #names

Simon Zelman
 

Most Jews in Ukraine, starting around the late 1800s, had a Russian name that they would go by in dealings with the state and with non-Jews (and starting in the 1910s-1920s, with Jews as well). The Yiddish name was usually reserved for the immediate family. My great-grandmother was born Udel, registered as Adelya as her Russian name, and went by Olya (nickname for Olga) with most people, including her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Girsh would go by Grisha (a nickname for Grigoriy), Khaim would become Yefim, Yankel would be Yakov and therefore Yasha as the nickname, Moishe would be Misha (a nickname for Mikhail), my grandfather Rakhmiel goes by Misha as well. All to say that Gitel was your great-grandmother’s Yiddish name and Katya was most likely the name she went by (but she didn’t necessarily go by Yekaterina ever, the name for which Katya is a nickname).

Hi Yefin,

On behalf of all of us, I spologize for just reading with interest, but not responding
to your sharing the new information that's been found and added.  

These new sources of organized information are important to us,  For sure!  

All information you find fits together. In time, more and more of it will become apparent, 
as more and more information  is uncovered and discovered.  

It's with sincere, heart-felt gratitude that we learn of each new set of information and its status and the progress in general.

The Bessarabian SIG is incredibly lucky to have as the coordinator, leading the group.  

Thank you so much and thanks to Jewish Gen for providing the real and vitual home and structure 
for the research and communication to and among all of us of what is being researched and accomplished.

I would be grateful to know the name of the son-in-law Simchon Brostow is going to (line 8).
Thanks to an off-list suggestion and some further research that led me to an earlier passenger list on which Simchon Brostow was listed with a traveling companion from the same small shtetl, Nachman Lewin, I was able to determine that the name of the son-in-law is Moses Lewin.

Circular (radial) Descendant Family Tree --looking for digital program or website that can create this #general

Chip Rosenfeld
 

Greetings,

I am creating a descendant family tree, using a previous one from 1970 as a template (see image of "Goldstock-Kolko" family tree  attached). Back in 1970 this was done by hand. Anyone know of a website or app or program that enables a user to create a similar tree digitally, where I can just import the names?
 
Thank you,

Chip Rosenfeld


Re: What was Ginsburg & Klausner, S Fallsburg, NY (Catskills) not listed as hotel #usa

Ellen Slotoroff Zyroff
 

For specific hotels, or other information, 

You might try Phil Brown, who turned his own passion, research, and Catskill Hotel memories conferences into a full-fleged institute documenting and archiving an important part of the Jewish experience in the U.S. 

1 - Contact Catskills Institute at Brown University, started and fun by faculty member, Phil Brown.

https://www.brown.edu/Research/Catskills_Institute/index.shtml
 
2 -  There are also lots of books and reminisences with compendia and articles, scholarly and otherwise.  

Two phrases that bring up some books at Amazon.com.   Research "Catskill hotels."  search "Borscht Belt."    

These hotels, large and small and in between, outgrowths of the first generation "kuchaleinin," ("cook alone, i.e. book one's own food, kashrut required, aka "rooming houses.") provided fabulous, fun vacations, with sports, amazing food, goo air, safe hiking, boatin, tenniss, evening comediens, singers, jugglers, etc, children's day camps. 

They served as an important, informal, but important institution for marriageable age singles looking for a suitable match.  Most of these singles were first generation Americans.   Even if on any given trip, one didn't "meet someone," one still had a great vacation - whether summer or winter.  

These hotels played a big role in assuring Jewish continuity for several generations of U.S. Jews,  a role known to families along the East Coast and even the Midwest.     

For example:
My parents met at Shawanga Lodge,  My mom from Manhattan/Bronx, my dad from Atlantic City, NJ.
My uncle and aunt also met at Shawanga Lodge.  My aunt from Brooklyn, NY.
My other uncle and aunt met at the Concord.  This aunt from New Rochelle, NY. 

And I'm adding the following set of links for the fun of it - to spark the personal memories many of us treasure and to share with others
"what was."

The Belvedere Hotel was on Budd Road in Woodbourne, NY, (several miles from South Fallsburg). https://www.brown.edu/Research/Catskills_Institute/hotelsbungalows.shtml
You can google for images of the Belvedere

It later became the Haywire Ranch, (1960’s) where you could rent horses for trail rides. It was owned by the Pepper family. https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/recordonline/obituary.aspx?n=joan-pepper-cauthers&pid=96434084&fhid=5760

After that it became and remains a yoga retreat https://sivanandayogaranch.org/

What Does It Mean When Someone "Fails in Examination for 2nd (Naturalization) Papers? #general #usa

Sally Horn
 

I just received the A-file for my grandfather, who never became a U.S. citizen.  The second page of the A-file says the following:  "...about 20 years ago, I received my first papers but failed in examination for 2nd papers.  have since lost all records."

I am not sure how to interpret this info.  The Petition for Naturalization that I found on Ancestry indicated that he filed a petition to become a naturalized citizen on July 8, 1924 but was denied on February 4, 1926 for failing to appear.  I don't know any more.  Did he have to take a test and failed the test? Does anyone have any insight about circumstances such as these?  

Also, the A-file states that he had "lost all records."  Would the State Superior Court in Connecticut which first accepted his petition or declaration of intention possibly still have the records?

Re: Researching my great-uncle Sergiu Godeanu #romania

Valentin Lupu
 

Sergiu Godeanu was born in May 15, 1897 in Bucharest to Rita and Nathan Goldenberg (not Goldenzweig). This data is from his criminal file during the communist regime in Romania. Sergiu was a successful lawyer during interwar period (there are many announces in "Monitorul Oficial" regarding his professional activity). In the very anti-Semitic Romania , the change to a Romanian family name was essential for a successful professional career. His internement at Targu Jiu prison was a result of the anti-Jewish laws during WWII, not for any political reasons. Sergiu was arrested In 1952 for the "crime of high treason". His real crime was the fact that he worked as a lawyer at the British Consulate in Bucharest. The sentence from 1954 was 12 years imprisonment in one of the most ferocious communist prisons, Pitesti. In 1962 Sergiu was pardoned and set free.
