Re: Alternate locations for an Orthodox wedding/marriage ceremony in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania #usa

Dan Nussbaum
 

My in-laws were married in the Rabbi's office because my mother-in-law's father had recently died. It also happened to be in Philadelphia, but I think it was a Conservative synagogue.

Re: New Revision Lists found-3 #bessarabia #ukraine #records

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi everybody, 

I did not get my interest in that statistics,  but here is final stats, after we completed to research all 68 microfilms.

There are 68 microfilms in that section.  From that number:
4 microfilms were marked in FamilySearch that they have Jewish records
28 microfilms we found with Jewish records
13 microfilms we have already looked at
40 microfilms do not have any Jewish records

So, we have new 17 microfilms with some Jewish records in them.
Here is a list of towns/years for which we have now Revision lists or some other lists:
    Vad Rashkov     1835, 1848
    Kaushany, Bendery uezd, 1835
    Ismail, 1835, Merchants
    Mogilev - Ataki, 1835, 1836,1848
    Brichany, 1835
    Lipkany, 1835
    Skulyany, Yassy uezd, Bessarabia, 1835, 1836, 1848
    Faleshty, 1835, 1836
    Khotin, 1835, 1836, 1850-1851
    Novoselitsa, 1835, 1850-1853
    Soroki, 1835
    Orgeev, 1849
    Teleneshty, 1849
    Soroki colonies: Markuleshty, Mereshevka, Vertuzhany, Dombroveny, Lyublin 1848-1854
    Gancheshty, 1851
    Lomachinets, 1849-1854
    Kishinev, 1849, 1859, Additional, 1836-1838, Additional, 1828, Name list
    Beltsy, 1835
    Aleksandreny, 1858-1859
    Vadu-lui-Vlad, 1858-1859

If there is any interest in these records, please let me know, and hopefully volunteers will come forward to work on these records.
So far only one person started to work for Soroki, 1835.  I am looking forward to hear from you.

All the best,

Hi to all,
I just joined this site after finding through dna that I am 49.9% Ashkenski jewish! I am so happy to find this information. I was given away at birth and know nothing of my genetics. I am desperate to find any information. I was born July 19,1947 in Bakersfield , California in Kern County. Listed on my birth certificate is George White and Irene Arrow from San Franciso, California. I am not sure if this is correct information. I was given to Floyd and Estelle Le May and never formally adopted. If anyone has any information, I would be enterally grateful!

Most probably not the same Max Ellman. The one naturalized in 1924, was born on May 14, 1889 in present-day Ukraine. The military records are for a  Max Ellman born on Nov 20,1891 in present-day Poland.

Re: Alternate locations for an Orthodox wedding/marriage ceremony in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania #usa

Sherri Bobish
 


Marcia,

My parents married in the rabbi's office.  This was in Brooklyn right before my Father went to The U.S. Army at the start of WW11.  After the ceremony they had a small party at my maternal grandparent's apartment.  They didn't even have any music because my paternal grandfather had recently passed away, and my maternal grandfather said music would not be appropriate.

As far as I can tell, large weddings (for most people) did not become common until the 1950's in The U.S. As with everything, I'm sure there were exceptions.

Regards,

Sherri Bobish

Hello,

 

Thank you in advance for any assistance translating this note to my Saba (grandpa), from I believe Moshe Shertok, also known as Moshe Sharett.

 

Moshe Sharett, Israel’s first foreign minister (1948–56) and second prime minister, replacing David Ben-Gurion who in 1953 retired temporarily.

 

The signature resembles that of Shertok on the list of signatures from the Declaration of Independence, last name on the left, but I could be wrong: https://www.knesset.gov.il/docs/images/signatures.jpg

You are quite right

In early Israel, and with Israeli fervor, Ben Gurion demanded that everyone should Hebrew-ise their names.
That is when Shertok became Sharet
