File of Berdychev surnames 1897 census #ukraine

Paul Chirlin
 

On the Ukrainian archive material recently discussed I worked my way to the Berdychev 1897 census page https://uk.wikisource.org/wiki/%D0%90%D1%80%D1%85%D1%96%D0%B2%D0%B8/%D0%94%D0%90%D0%9A%D0%9E/384/15

Just above the table of material is this clickable line: A poarkusnyy pointer of Jewish surnames. Cases 3-81. Author Boris Finkelstein
which opens a page with a listing of all the names appearing on pages 3 to 81 of something but I cannot figure out the material from which it was extracted.  As Chazen appears several times on the listing I'd love to find the original file that was used.

ROSEN. They are known to have lived in Baltimore, Chicago and other
places.

Re: Yiddish male given name 'Kos' #poland #names

Reading all of the above, I think that the name Kos is from Kehos/Kohos/Kehat/Kohat, from the name of one of the son's of Levi. All very interesting.

I looked on SteveMorse to see if there are any New York City death records for the given name Kos or Koss, and there are about 10 of them, all from Jewish families. So, there were a few men walking around NYC with this name.

Thanks for the help.

My friend spent 5 years off and on trying to find her great grandfather by searching exactly for 'Aron Kos Shaler' and only with that spelling. Couldn't find anything. I found him in about 15 minutes by searching census records for anyone with the last name 'sounds like Shaler' in NYC, and found Aaron Shaler living in Brooklyn, age 70 years. And using Steve Morse, found the death record for Koss Shaler. Sure, I got plenty of Schillers and Schollers, and the like, but it was safe to ignore them.

Where can I find the birth certificate of someone who was born in a DP camp (Benzheim)? #records #holocaust

Jessica Eber
 

My cousins would like to find the birth certificate of their mother, who was born in 1946 in the DP Camp in Benzheim. Is there a special archive for DP camp records? Do they just write to the nearest German office of civil records? Thanks for any suggestions.

Are there any records from Kolonie L'vove, Kherson Guberniya, which was one of the former Russian Jewish agricultural colonies.  BTW I am one of the webmasters for this shtetl on the Kehilla links.

Success! Family Reunited After 68 Years #holocaust #JewishGenUpdates

Nancy Siegel
 

Say, Dad, Grandpa is Not dead? Reuniting the Family After 68 Years

by Noah Isman

“… Many people gathered at the border-crossing but the Russians did not let them pass. While they were waiting, and before Israel had a chance to find and join his father and brother, a German air raid started and the crowd dispersed, some running into a nearby forest and some exploiting the disorder to cross into the Russian zone. In the commotion David and Henryk lost each other, never to meet again…”

Noah tells the story of how his family became separated during the Holocaust, how some were murdered by the Nazis while others, unbeknownst to each other, managed to survive, and how the families reconnected after almost seven decades.

In Sefardi-accented Hebrew, "Kehos" would be pronounced "Kehat".

In this record it definitely says Kehos Mandel - with the H after the K. Although it's spelled differently than the Hebrew Kehos, in Hebrew there are no vowels, and in this record there is the vowel O between the H and the S, I still believe it's the Hebrew name Kehos.

Re: Yiddish male given name 'Kos' #poland #names

In my family "Kos" or "Koas" is Yiddish for Kohas or Kohat (that name also can be Kehas or Kehat), which was the name of one of the three sons of Levi, i.e. one of the three families of Levites.

Re: Yiddish male given name 'Kos' #poland #names

Michele Lock
 

I've just done a search on Jewishgen, looking for entries in the Lublin Gubernia for the given name Kos. And I got 62 hits. I found one from 1847, where its easy to see the father's name Kos Mandel written in both Polish and Hebrew. Perhaps this will shed more light on this given name. I take it that in birth records, a father's religious Hebrew name would be used, and not his every day Yiddish name.

Thanks,
Michele Lock

Re: Yiddish male given name 'Kos' #poland #names

Michele Lock
 

All these choices seem reasonable to me. I just checked the Polish birth record for Aron Kos, and there does not appear to be any Hebrew or Yiddish written out for his name, though his parents' names are there in Hebrew letters. I can clearly make out 'Kos' in Polish, and just those letters. The 1879 Russian Marriage record for Aron Kos does not have any Hebrew in it. I agree that viewing a photo of the New York City gravestone would answer this question. I looked on FindAGrave, BillionGraves, Jewishdata.com, and JOWBR, but no photos, though FindAGrave does confirm that he is buried as Koss Shaler at Beth David cemetery in Brooklyn. Myself, I'm leaning towards Kohos or Kosriel. 
Perhaps I should look to see if I can find other individuals in the Lublin gubernia records that have the given name 'Kos' and see if I can find their names written out in Hebrew letters in their original records.

Thanks for the responses.

Irish B.M.D Records Online for Free #records #announcements

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

  

Irish birth and marriage certificates from as far back as 1864 are now available for free online and death certificates between 1878 and 1968 are also available.  The records were made available by a joint initiative from the

Department of Culture, Heritage, and the Gaeltacht and the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection, in 2019.

 

Historical registers of marriages, births and deaths are available to view for free on the website https://www.irishgenealogy.ie/en/

and covers births from 1864 to 1918, deaths from 1878 to 1968, and marriages from 1864 to 1943.

 

The new additions include: deaths in 1967 and 1968, births in 1917 and 1918, and marriages from 1864 to 1869 and 1942 to 1943.

 

The digitization of the records has been carried out by the Civil Registration Service and by members of the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, who prepared and uploaded the records.

 

Ireland’s Social Protection Minister and the Minister for Culture both said the Civil Registration Service “one of the State’s essential services and one of the greatest resources for those establishing their family histories.

Providing this open and free access to older records and registry entries will further support the efforts of many family historians throughout the world.”

 

The General Register Office is working on updating even more records.  Plans are in place to extend the digitalization of death certificates by 14 years to 1864, while there are also plans to update almost 20 years

of marriage records. Soon, marriages as far back as 1845 will be available to view online.

 

Jews in Ireland

While always a small Jewish community in Ireland it is an established community. In addition, a number of Jews immigrated to Ireland in the late 19th and 20th centuries whose families were from central Europe, due to the pogroms, and especially from Lithuania. Jews also stopped in Ireland along the way to immigrating to North America—and may have lived there for a few years.  You never know what an Irish vital records may reveal!

I will offer another possibility...Yekotiel -> in Ashkenazic Yeskosiel -> shortened to Kos. (Usual nickname is Kushel.)
