contact needed in Zhitomir re gravestone REYDMAN #ukraine

Susan stone
 

Hello All...
I would appreciate any help if you are in Ukraine or know someone who is...to track down the descendents of my great Aunt Esther REYDMAN.  I found out about her through my great Uncle (her brother)/s obit  .  Even my dad did not know about his aunt (his father's sister).  Please see the photos.  I found her gravestone in Zhitomir and it says she has children and grandchildren.  That was 1969.  I found out if this was truly my great aunt from a Nazi list on Yad Vashem which said she had been "evacuated" to another town and a man with the same name ,, too, had been "evacuated".    Her birthdate was just right so I am assuming it is her.  She was born in Narodici.
Can someone find her grandchildren or great grandchildren?  The Rabbi there already said no one is listed to take care of the grave.

There were 4 siblings and all were here in chicago except her.  Please see the photos and thank you.

Researching A Whole Jewish Community to Better Research Your Ancestors

 


Speaker: Deborah Glassman 
Sunday • February 21 2021 

10 AM to 12 PM Mountain Time on Zoom

 

9:30 AM A Schmear, A Schmooze, and Share
Program Begins at 10 AM

 

 

Doing everything right in genealogy – using all of the records, tracing all siblings, working from known to unknown – still has one major limitation. You dont know which other people, not in your known family, will have records naming your family. When I started tracing all Jews from a shared heritage community, I found people who, when listing their destination parties or those left behind in the old country, named my relatives! I also found my ancestors named as beneficiaries to wills of childless relatives and as cousins in Russian Revision Lists. This is the very essence of genealogy. Getting more records to tell you more details on your family. I will show you how to do this on your own as well part of a collaborative effort to gather all records on a Jewish community.

 

Deborah Glassman’s Biography:

Deborah has been working on projects in Jewish genealogy, and Jewish history in the Russian Empire and in predecessor nations, since 1972.  Identifying and indexing record sources for whole-town research, is where she has specialized.  She has authored 8 books, created websites, and contributed to books and websites by others.

By examine each record on the thousands of Jewish residents of her towns of concentration, she has been able to discern patterns otherwise obscured when 

tracing one family at a time.  She loves helping others use all of the jurisdictional record impacting their Jewish heritage, more effectively.

Re: Translation Hebrew back of photograph #translation

Avi Markovitz
 

This look like a Hebrew date to me " ט"ו בתום היום א' דחול המועד סוכות תרנב"
I you do not read Hebrew, this means "on the 17th at the end of the day, first day of  hol hamoed hanuka, 1891" using abbreviation "א דחהס" to describe  the first day of hanika, and  the Hebrew year in Hebrew letters "תרנב". If I'm right that will be of the 17th October 1891eve....
Hope this helps

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook Page #yizkorbooks

Bruce Drake
 

One reality of life in the Jewish Pale was the grinding poverty. This excerpt, “Poverty and Hardship in Bobruisk (Belarus)” is from a longer section of its Yizkor book, titled “Bobruisk In the Nineteenth Century .”
 
“Here lived ‘in old cut-up pants porters and shoemakers and tailors — also beggars, hunchbacks, sick, coughing, and wives, which stood with their baskets in the market,’” writes the author of this chapter. People wandered to different places in southern Russia or to America “to find a piece of bread." Poverty also gave rise to youth gangs and a “Jewish underworld” and to brothels frequented by the great number of soldiers in the city. By the end of the 19th century, sparked by the Russian revolutionary movement, poverty was also a driving force in people joining the workers’ movement.

Замбров

 Состоялось в посаде Замбров, 18 (30) сентября 1880-го года в 9 часов утра.  Явился еврей Абрам-Меер Ицкович Шафран, торговец, 21-го года, живущий в посаде Замбров в присутствии свидетелей Израиля Цибельмана, 44 лет и Шимки Рожина, 54 лет, оба жители посада Замбров и предявили нам младенца женского пола, объявляя, что она родилась в посаде Замбров 1-го (13-го) сентября сего года в 3 часа утра от законной жены Ханы (возможно)-Розы, двух имен Вольфович (возможно), 18-и лет.  Младенцу сему дано имя Зельда.  Акт сей окончен и подписан, кроме объявляющих себя безграмотными.

Zambrov

# 90

 It took place in Posad Zambrov, September 18 (30), 1880 at 9 am. There was a Jew Abram-Meer Itskovich Shafran, a merchant, 21 years old, living in the Zambrov Posad in the presence of the witnesses Israel Tsibelman, 44 years old and Shimki Rozhin, 54 years old, both residents of the Zambrov Posad, and presented us with a female baby, announcing that she was born in posad Zambrov on September 1 (13) of this year at 3 o'clock in the morning from the lawful wife of Khana (possibly) -Rose, two names Volfovich, 18 years old. This child was given the name Zelda. This act is completed and signed, except for those who declare themselves illiterate.

 

Israel Tsibelman

Shimka Rozhin

Civil Status Official Signature

 

Comment:

“Khana (possibly) –Rose”, Khana name not clear in writing.

Volfovich – possibly paternal name from father’s “Volf” or could be a lust name too.  It is not so clear in the document.

Second document, what you mansion like a Marriage record is the copy of your first record – VM90915

Help reading a Polish birth register #poland

Robin Schwartz
 

I found the registry with my maternal great grandmother's birth.  The headings seem to be in Latin (second attachment-had to attach in two pieces )I am assuming that is because of the influence of the Catholic church?  The column I am having difficulty reading is headed "Patrini", which translates from the Latin into "sponsors".  I'm not sure what that means here.  The entry I am trying to read is for Zipre (first attachment).  Any help is appreciated.
Thanks

Re: Brooklyn Street name #usa

I live in Downtown Brooklyn at BOND St. There has never been a Boyd St in Brooklyn. My bet is the address is actually Bond Street. Try searching for that as the address...

Re: Brooklyn Street name #usa

Steven Cohen
 

If "Boyd Street" is from a passenger arrival record, it was written down by a clerk in Europe who had no knowledge of Brooklyn street names.  You might consider Hoyt Street, which does exist, and sounds quite similar.

Searching GORDON family, Libau -> Londonderry, Ireland c1884 #latvia #general #courland

Richard Gordon
 

Dear Researchers, Members,

My Grandfather Ephriam GORDON stated in his naturalisation papers
(Londonderry, Ireland 1899) that he was born September 1872 at Libau in
Kurland, son of Abraham GORDON (son, I believe, of Ephraim) and Lina
(DAVIDOW). I’m told he had a sister with two children who moved to Vilna
before WWII and an older brother David who arrived in Londonderry
some years before to establish the family business before leaving for South Africa.

My research so far has found nothing at all and I wonder if anyone has come
across a GORDON family from Libau? I am the last of my family having very little
information and I would be very grateful if anyone has any information. My very
recent Ancestry DNA test provided no close matches.

Thank you,
Richard Gordon.

Jewish Cemeteries in Poland and the Pandemic – an Update Directly from Poland

with Witold Wrzosinski, Director of the Jewish Cemetery in Warsaw, Poland

 

VIRTUAL MEETING: Join from Home

                                                               Thursday, 18 February 2021, at 7:30 pm. ET.

In recent decades, a huge increase of interest in the Jewish past has taken place in Poland and elsewhere in Eastern and Central Europe. It has taken many forms, ranging from thousands of private genealogy projects, to preservation and digitization efforts, to museums, TV shows and conferences, to a notable growth in heritage tourism.

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Toronto and its Poland SIG will present direct from Poland Witold Wrzosinski to discuss his efforts in preserving our Jewish history by preserving our Jewish cemeteries. As the co-founder and co-director of the Foundation for the Documentation of Jewish Cemeteries in Poland, he has been indexing epitaph inscriptions from Polish-Jewish cemeteries for the last 14 years and run an open access, searchable online database with more than 110,000 photographs and transcriptions from more than 100 cemeteries.

Join us as we explore his efforts during COVID-19, especially in these trying times when travel is hardly possible and people rarely leave their homes. How do we even start finding the right people? What is the future of local projects already undertaken by descendants in cooperation with residents in dozens of remote Polish towns? Are Jewish cemeteries bound to deteriorate now for good? How are the relevant institutions in Poland dealing with this challenge? Let’s try to get answers.

February is our promotional month where we are offering our SIG programmes and their recordings to the public. We trust that you benefited from our Ukraine SIG and Latvia SIG programmes this month. Starting in March, our policy is to return to keeping SIG programmes and their recordings open only to members. This will keep the size of our SIGs smaller and thus allow the kind of presentations, discussion and interaction that are a hallmark of our special interest groups.

 

 

To our guests, consider joining our membership for only $40.00 per year by Clicking Here or consider a donation by Clicking Here to assist us in continuing our mission providing a forum for the exchange of genealogical knowledge and information. (Canadians receive a CRA tax receipt.)
