Jewish organisation uniform #photographs

David Askienazy
 

On this picture is my cousin Fima Blindes. I identified this group as scout group. But could it be a political organisation? As the Hashomer Hatzaïr, or the Betar. It don't think so, but just to be sure.

It is on ViewMate at the following address ...

Picture on the Bialystok Yizkor Book #yizkorbooks

David Askienazy
 

I discovered in the 1951 Bialystok Yizkor Book a picture of my great-uncle Lowa Blindes. It's a Poale Zion meeting. I have the original of this picture. Is there, by any chance, a possibility to know who brought this picture to the Yizkor Book? Does anyone have a copy of this picture?
Thank you

Not really.  In a stroller, the baby sits upright and usually facing forward.  In a carriage, the baby lies down.  The difference isn't just size.  It's more like the difference between a chair and a bed.

Re: Information Wanted regarding the Legion Etrangere Civile #france

Moishe Miller
 

Daniel,

My grandfather, Naftuli Miller, aka Antonin Muller, was forced to
"volunteer" to the French Foreign Legion during WWII as pre-condition to
his entry into the country with his Czechoslovakian passport. I was able
to obtain his military folder just by writing to the French Foreign
Legion, including his death certificate, my father's birth and marriage
records, and my birth record, proving I was his grandson.

I did now find two entries for my grandfather at
https://www.memoiredeshommes.sga.defense.gouv.fr/fr/arkotheque/client/mdh/engages_volontaires_etrangers/resus_rech.php

Would there be any records in France of his initial arrival. Our family
story is that right after he married in Nyirbator, Hungary, the Munich
Pact was signed. His brother was "deported" to his town of birth
(Zborov, Slovakia) and telegramed his brother not to return home. The
groom fled with his bride to some port city, in late 1938 or early 1939,
and got on a boat. As the story continues, they were refused entry in
several countries, until they came to France. As the French had a treaty
with Czechoslovakia, they allowed my grandparents entry.

What other types of records might I find for them in France, between
1938 and 1942? They lived in Paris initially, and later on, in Nice.

Stay safe,

Re: Surname Alhadeff from Greece #names

Leon Taranto
 

The Alhadeff surname is most closely associated with the Jews of Rhodes, a community that likely neared about 5,000 at its zenith and was virtually wiped out by the Germans during the Shoah when they deported over 2,000 Jews of Rhodes and nearby Kos to Auschwitz. Few survived and virtually none returned to live out their lives on Rhodes, where no real semblance of a community survived.

Since Alhadeff is an ancestral name for me, through my maternal grandmother’s descent from the affluent commercial and banking Alhadeff family of Rhodes, I have identified and developed family trees that collectively include over 1,000 persons with the Alhadeff surname. These include many branches, over 100. In many instances I have been able to tie branches together with a common ancestor. I can trace my own branch back to the mid-1770s, but generally cannot go back earlier than the 1800s for other branches. Without the ability to push the other branches back to the 1700s and perhaps earlier, I don’t expect to make much more headway in connecting branches.

Some of the branches are tied by identical Y-DNA results. My Oumano grandmother, whose maternal grandmother was also an Alhadeff, has an Oumano nephew whose Y-DNA results are a perfect match to two Alhadeff men. Thus, it appears that my Oumano line is likewise an Alhadeff branch, with a common male ancestor. Among the possibilities are that (1) my remote paternal Oumano ancestor at some point changed his name from Alhadeff to Oumano (perhaps even going back to the Inquisition to find safety by abandoning the Jewish surname Alhadeff which was known in pre-Expulsion Castile (Spain); (2) my remote Oumano ancestor was born an Alhadeff but then adopted by an Oumano, perhaps after his father died or after his mother remarried; or (3) my remote Oumano ancestor was the product of an affair that his mother had with an Alhadeff man.

Re: Nidyki, Ukmerge uzed: Current location? #lithuania

And the winner is...

Lyduokiai! AKA Nidoki, Liduokiai, Liduokyay, Lyduokių, Lyduokliai
It's listed in the JewishGen Gazeteer, not in the Jewish Communities Database.
A tiny village 8 miles from Ukmerge. In 1874 it must have been something out of the Sholom Alechim stories.
It's proximity to Ukmerge, Sirvintos and other towns where my family lived clinched it.

My deepest thanks to everyone who responded.

Regarding the wedding ring on the man's left hand:  years ago, when my daughter became engaged, my uncle offered her the wedding rings of his parents (my grandparents).  Inside were inscribed two dates.  My mother explained to me, that it was the tradition of the Jews in Berlin, that when you became engaged, you wore the ring on the ring finger of your right hand, and when you became engaged, the date of the marriage was engraved inside the ring and you wore it on the ring finger of your left hand.

Hi, Sherri!

Thank you for your response!  A good person to search on would be Morris Mulbogart born 1892 in Manhattan Ward 10, in the 1910 census.  Occupations, marital status, immigration status all marked "Un".  About 95 men whose ages range from teens to 60s.  I suspect these are homeless men.   It's interesting about the baseball team, though.

If you give us one of the men's name, age, and birthplace (preferably a not too common name) than we can look at the 1910 census page.

At www.fultonhistory.com I found a mention in a 1903 NYC newspaper for an amateur baseball team called The Park Strollers.

Are there occupations listed for any of these men?  What is their age range?  Seeing the census sheet will be helpful.

Re: Minsk gubernia town - Chuty, Huta or Choota #belarus

Krzysztof Witaszek
 

Hello
 Huta (Huty) is a Polish word for the smelter or ironworks. There were hundreds of small villages with that name in the area where once was the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (before the partitions of Poland in the end of XVIIIc)    .
Look into the Geographic Dictionary of the Polish Kingdom (Słownik geograficzny Królestwa Polskiego) and you find four such villages in the Minsk area, in particular Ihumen  county. 
 
 
    (On the left bottom page)  
 
  (The dictionary was written in XIXc, I  don't know if it was ever translated into English)  
 
 
 Today's name for Ihumen is Chervyen  (Чэрвень) some 40 km east from Minsk.
There are other Huta's located  in Minsk Gubernia,  but more distant from Minsk.

Did you search this database :
https://www.memoiredeshommes.sga.defense.gouv.fr/fr/arkotheque/client/mdh/engages_volontaires_etrangers/resus_rech.php

Thank you for your kind response. My father's name is not on the database you sent, even with different spellings.
I'm quite sure at this point that the "Legion Etrangere Civile" membership card that he had (which looks quite official with his name, address, profession and nationality) is bogus. But I am still curious if other refuges in Paris sought (or forged) such documentation in order to avoid internment or deportation.

Marcia,

Perhaps this site, which lists the towns & villages in Saros County, will be helpful in finding "Felrener."  The list is alphabetical.  Assume that "Felrener" is some form of misspelling, and check the list for something close to that. 
http://www.hungarianvillagefinder.com/HVFIndex2/41_SAROS.html
Many towns had different names in various languages, including Yiddish variants.  Those variants can be found at:

Re: Dobromil research guidance #ukraine

Sherri Bobish
 


David,

Have you tried a soundex search on the surname?  If you are doing an exact search than even one letter difference in the spelling can prevent finding the family.

It is also possible that there just aren't extant records for the person and/or time frame you seek.  Dobromil is very close to my ancestral town of Ustrzyki Dolne, from which records are almost totally non-existent.

Another option is to search for all records from the town, and look through them for your family name.

Sherri Bobish
