Hi Carl,
there are several documents for Isaak, that I was able to find, based on his birth year/city, as well as father's name.  However, the job and the wife's names differ - factory worker and wife's name was Sofiya.  
I found several Yad Vashem documents for him, including the one you are quoting "He was a manager and married to Ana."  The manager part is not accurate.  It says "мастер на заводе", which literally translates to "master at a factory", as in craftsman or foreman.  One of the documents below lists him as polisher/grinder - so maybe his job title was master polisher or similar.  The form was filled out by his niece Anna Kaplan of LA, who might the same person who passed away in 2007.
Other Yad Vashem documents refer to 2 evacuation locations.  Let me know if you need to get this info, it should contain family member details

Subject: [JewishGen.org] Ukrainian State Archives digitization project - Kiev city Jewish births, marriages & deaths #ukraine #russia

 

While reviewing the new Beta-testing website of the Ukrainian State Archives (English language version at https://archives.gov.ua/en/), I discovered that the archives has been digitizing records for at least the past year, and posting scans of records to the various websites of the regional archives branches.  I hadn't heard anything about this before, and so spent some time reviewing the digitized materials at various regional branch websites.

I found that most of the items of Jewish records that the archives has digitized so far duplicate things that Alex Krakovsky has digitized.  (Alex's website can be found at the following Tiny URL link:  https://tinyurl.com/Alex-Krakovsky-site)  The Ukraine SIG is hard at work translating the records that Alex has posted to the internet.  Alex's digitized records include most, but not all, of the Jewish births, marriages and deaths for Kiev city.  I found that the Central State Archives of Ukraine in Kiev has digitized most of the remaining Jewish birth, marriage records that Alex had not yet digitized through 1901, and that these can be found at their website.  The list of what they have digitized in Kiev city Jewish vitals is at https://cdiak.archives.gov.ua/full_files/1164_0001.php.  Alex's list of Kiev Jewish vital records is at https://uk.wikisource.org/wiki/%D0%90%D1%80%D1%85%D1%96%D0%B2%D0%B8/%D0%A6%D0%94%D0%86%D0%90%D0%9A/1164/1#%D0%9A%D0%B8%D1%97%D0%B2.

Comparing what has been digitized on each site, it appears that the Ukraine archives has the following digitized records that Alex has not digitized yet:

Kiev Jewish births - 1875      https://cdiak.archives.gov.ua/spysok_fondiv/1164/0001/0034/
Kiev Jewish births - 1879     https://cdiak.archives.gov.ua/spysok_fondiv/1164/0001/0044/
Kiev Jewish births - 1884     https://cdiak.archives.gov.ua/spysok_fondiv/1164/0001/0057/
Kiev Jewish births - 1885     https://cdiak.archives.gov.ua/spysok_fondiv/1164/0001/0059/
Kiev Jewish births - 1886     https://cdiak.archives.gov.ua/spysok_fondiv/1164/0001/0061/

Kiev Jewish marriages - 1877-1878     https://cdiak.archives.gov.ua/spysok_fondiv/1164/0001/0041/

Kiev Jewish deaths - 1875-1876     https://cdiak.archives.gov.ua/spysok_fondiv/1164/0001/0037/
Kiev Jewish deaths - 1877-1878     https://cdiak.archives.gov.ua/spysok_fondiv/1164/0001/0042/
Kiev Jewish deaths - 1882     https://cdiak.archives.gov.ua/spysok_fondiv/1164/0001/0054/
Kiev Jewish deaths - 1887     https://cdiak.archives.gov.ua/spysok_fondiv/1164/0001/0067/
Kiev Jewish deaths - 1891     https://cdiak.archives.gov.ua/spysok_fondiv/1164/0001/0077/
Kiev Jewish deaths - 1892     https://cdiak.archives.gov.ua/spysok_fondiv/1164/0001/0079/
Kiev Jewish deaths - 1893     https://cdiak.archives.gov.ua/spysok_fondiv/1164/0001/0082/
Kiev Jewish deaths - 1895     https://cdiak.archives.gov.ua/spysok_fondiv/1164/0001/0086/

A couple of notes should be made about these files.  First, the Ukraine State Archives website uses different "delo" or "sprava" numbers (item numbers) to identify each file.  The fond (1164) and opis (1) numbers are the same.  When comparing books that both Alex and the archives digitized, however, it is clear that they are the exact same books, and not different copies of the books.  The logical conclusion is that archives must have renumbered the items in fond 1164, opis 1 between the time that Alex did his scans and the time the archives did its own scans.  Therefore, the books on the archives website have different "sprava" numbers than the books in Alex's list.

Second, there are differences in the way the books were scanned on the website.  Alex did most of his scans in color, while the archives scans are in black & white.  Also, Alex photographed both facing pages of the books together in one image (the Russian and Hebrew pages of the same records), while the archives scanned the Russian and Hebrew pages separately, so there are two images for each set of facing pages.  

Finally, the archives scans are accessed on a page by page basis, unlike Alex's files, which can be downloaded as a complete PDF file for the entire year.  

Those differences noted, it is obviously of great value to Jewish genealogists to have these additional records online and accessible to everyone.  I found a number of my own relatives in the additional years noted above.  The images can be freely downloaded if you find records of interest.  The Ukraine SIG has been notified of these additional online records, and will probably try to find a way to download and image these records as well as Alex Krakovsky's scans.  

I will try to post some additional files I found on the various websites of the Ukrainian State Archives branches that are things that Alex Krakovsky did not scan.  As noted, most of the Jewish files the archives has digitized are things that Alex also digitized, but there some other additions, as well.

Searching for marriage of my grandparents, Max and Anna Slonimsky, c. 1905 #records

jbonline1111@...
 

I have never been able to find the marriage of my grandparents.  Max (Mordche) Slonimsky emigrated to America from Russia (Belarus) to NYC in 1897.  He married Anna (Chana) Passin (?) some time before 1907, when my eldest uncle was born.  There is no record of their marriage at the NY Municipal Archives, though there is a record of her second marriage.  I have not found her passage to the states either.  He died in 1917 and she in 1927.  She was naturalized with her second husband but Max was not naturalized.  

While I realize they could have been marriage by proxy before she traveled to this country, I have no proof of that or any information on how they came together though they came from different cities, she from Vilnius, he from  Lechowitz (Lyakhovichi).  Any suggestions on paths to pursue would be very welcome.

We are requesting one or two volunteers for this.

 

On the cadastral map is a listing of 130 plots with surnames filled in for approximately 100 of them. This simple indexing would just create a simple spreadsheet with those house numbers and those surnamed. We have a template and it would likely take about 10 minutes.

 

The next step would be to attempt to connect the student index, which contains student and their parents and a sequence number to a house number from the first index above and adding that house number column and filling it in, where possible.

I found my great-uncle listed in the Yad Vashem database as serving in the Soviet Army, killed in action, shown below. Where can I look for more information about him, based on his service in the Soviet Army? Thanks in advance.

Isaak Kaplan was born in Minsk, Belorussia (USSR) in 1900 to Osher and Feiga. He was a manager and married to Ana. Prior to WWII he lived in Minsk, Belorussia (USSR). During the war he was in the Soviet armed forces.
 
Isaak was killed in military service.

Dear Daniella,

On  JewishGen in the Poland Section you have the Poland 1929  Business Directory. In some cases the address of the business is mentioned. If your relatives were in business there is fair chance

to find their business address. Here is the link to Kolomiya pages  https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/poland/1929/P1489.pdf

“The Weekday Krinik,” from the Yizkor book of that town in Poland, could probably also be titled “A Day in the Life of a Shtetl” since it resembles so many scenes described in other books. “Dark gray smoke, in the early morning, rising from the houses into the still half-dark sky, announces that in Krinik a new workday has begun.” The streets grow lively as the husbands are dispatched to work and the children to school. Perhaps no one is busier than the wives: “They clean house, do the laundry, mend shirts and clothes. They go to the food store, the baker and butcher…Loaded with baskets and bags, the wives return home to cook lunch. The fire is started in the oven. In cast iron pots they cook meat or dairy lunches.”
Then there is market day. “Jews walk around among the densely placed wagons. They rummage in the sacks, look at the peasants' packs and they haggle. They slap the gentiles' hands, a sign that they have come to an agreement… Jewish butchers buy a cow, calves and sheep. Horse dealers try out the horses. They look at the horses' teeth. Their neighing and the mooing of the cows mix with the shouts of the buyers and sellers… Peasants sit with companions, treating themselves to vodka. They snack on herring and sausage. They talk loudly. With each glass emptied, their voices rise. Their faces are already red, their eyes half closed from drunkenness. Some embrace and kiss. One of them starts humming a melody, and half-drunk voices join in.”

I am a member of Gesher Galicia.

 

I have always found comparing the maps fairly problematic.

 

In addition, I am trying to prepare a list of records to be researched based on house numbers / address in addition to vital records.

Are you a member of Gesher Galicia? You should check the cadastral maps there of Kolomya and there you can view where a particular house number is compared to a city map. Any questions write info@....

Good luck,

Re: Lithuania SIG Vilnius household registers - 5,000 lines of new data available #lithuania

I am responding publicly as Amir's questions are of general interest.

Question 2 is simpler, so I'll do that first. To find the batch for a particular record, note the address (street and number). We have posted an alphabetical list of completed addresses with the corresponding batch number. It can be accessed from the VHR home page (https://tinyurl.com/vhr-home), link is towards the bottom of the page. This list will be updated when each new batch is released. For your convenience, I am attaching the current list to this message.

For the first question, I am always happy to assist with understanding household register data. Please email me at vhrproject@.... As general advice, if one is trying to determine if people with the same (or similar) common name are related, it is a good idea to look at every possible source, not just the household registers. For Vilnius in the interwar period, there are passport applications, marriage and death records, and a birth index (the full birth records are still under privacy protection). All but the birth index are already in the ALD.

If you make a qualifying contribution to the VHR project, you can obtain a batch of your choosing in the form of a spreadsheet. You may then be able to discover further information such as the names of other people in the same apartment as your relatives, which can also help in your research. If you are not already familiar with the (free) batch previews document, definitely look at that to find which batches include your surnames (including batches not yet added to the ALD). This link will immediately download the previews document to your computer: https://tinyurl.com/vhr-previews.
