Hi, Mykola,

A very quick search at this site, https://www.ancestry.com/search/?name=_Gritskevich&gender=m&name_x=_1,  brought up a number of entries with the first possible surname you offered.  I actually started with this very useful tool:  https://stevemorse.org/index.html.

Though I didn't see an Ivan/John or similar name, there was a name similar to Vasiliy.  May I suggest you try the Steve Morse page and see if that brings up any results for you? 

I am replying to the group so others will not duplicate this information.
Best wishes,

Yes, Diane is correct.  I obtained several original incorporation papers for landsmanshaftn many years ago and they are fascinating.  Some are more detailed in their mission statement than others.

Dear Michael,

 

The ‘39 registry was during the Second World War because the 1931 Census burnt!

 

We are so very lucky that they made it available before one hundred years!

 

Kind regards

Some libraries provide access to the Ancestry Library Edition. By logging in through the library portal, I can access any record.
While I cannot add those records to my tree on Ancestry, I can save them to my computer.
I have located quite a lot of records that have helped me locate family in Canada and London.
The library may also provide access to Fold3, HeritageQuest and local newspapers.

Re: Searching for FRIEDMAN relatives from Minsk #belarus

I'm specifically looking for them before they came to the United States.  I've already combed through Ancestry.com and familysearch.org and didn't find anything about them prior to being in Philadelphia in the early 1900s.  Looking at Rose's grave, it looks like, from my understanding of Hebrew, it says "Daughter ot Rav Yosef Dovid" and I'm trying to find out more about them.

Searching for FRIEDMAN Family on Berriman Street in Brooklyn in the late 1920s #usa

Judith27
 

Dear JewishGendom,

 

        I am searching for a Friedman family which was last known to live at 163 Berriman Street in Brooklyn, NY, circa 1925-1928, at which point the genealogical trail grows very cold.

        In particular, I am searching for the brothers and sisters of Charles (Kaddish) Friedman, including:

 

     (1)    Abe Friedman ------ born May 1886 in Russia, 14 on the 1900 Census, and 19 on the 1905 Census.

     (2)    Morris Friedman --- born April 1888 in Russia, 12 on 1900 Census, 21 on 1910 Census

     (3)    Rose Friedman ---- born Jan 1898 in New York City, 3 on 1900 Census, 13 on 1910, 18 on 1915

     (4)    May Friedman ------ born 1899 in New York City, 1 on 1900 Census, 11 on 1910, 21 on 1925 

     (5)    Frank Friedman ---- born about 1907, 3 on 1910, 8 on 1915, and 18 on 1925.

 

    These five were all children of Isidore aka Edward Friedman and his wife Sarah Koskichovitch.  The parents, Edward and Sarah Friedman, both died in the late 1920s and were buried at Mt. Zion, but none of their children are buried with them.

 

     I have tried searching for possible birth, marriage, and death records via the usual web sites online including Ancestry, FamilySearch, and ItalianGen, but whenever I try to follow a promising trail and search further for census details usually a birth place or birth year doesn't jibe.

 

     I'm hoping someone out there in JewishGen land may have knowledge of one or more of these Friedmans that will help flesh out this family tree.

    Looking forward to your responses and suggestions..

Hi Mykola,

If this is helpful, this photo of your relative shows him in a U.S. Navy officer's uniform. You might try and ask for help in some of the military subgroups.

Good luck,

Hi,
I know someone posted that there is a way to obtain the actual records from familysearch while sitting in a parking lot and logging in. I was wondering if there was anyone who could get this record of an aunt that passed away so we could find more info on her (grave, parent info, etc).
Thanks,

Molly, 

Are you searching information about the Friedman family  after their arrival to the US,  or before?  On ancestry.com and familysearch.org you can find many records for them.

Hi Yoni,
Did you do DNA? My great grandparents were Aizik Horowitz married to Ester Kaufman from Minsk but I don't have any records of the names you mention. If there is a connection I would love to know, but DNA may be very helpful in your search and make sure you upload to gedmatch and other sites.

Looking for the children of my uncle who disappeared during the Holocaust in Romania-Father Stauber, Mother Fischman #romania #holocaust

michele shari
 

Hi group,
My late great uncle, Josef Maier Stauber, b. 1909 (parents Lazar Stauber and Czipre/Tipora Stauber), from Viseu De Jos (Also Visso) was married to Marta/Mindel Fischman b. ~ 1910 (parents Yenta Perl and Abraham Fischman) and they had 2 children, I believe sons. Mindel was killed in 1943 and I found her grave. My great uncle survived the camps and came here after and lived with my father and his parents (his mother was Josef's oldest sister). All through childhood I knew about these young children, but his sons from his second marriage never did until I told them and I was the younger cousin so they were quite shocked. We all did DNA (FTDNA, MH, uploaded to Gedmatch) and I have searched the Arolson Archives as best as I could. Any idea if there are any other resources to find out about these children, if only to remember their names for Yahrzeits. They would have been born probably in the 1930s so the birth records are not online yet due to privacy laws. 
Thanks for any and all help.

We found a lot of Canadian records for our relatives there on Ancestry, but I had also already found many of them on FamilySearch. I suggest you try it for 6 months but remember to calendar the renewal date and cancel it beforehand as many of these sites do automatic renewal and once they bill your credit card you can't get a refund. Also, we pooled our resources, my cousin pays for the Ancestry and I pay for MyHeritage and we share info. Also, my cousin put up a private tree on Ancestry bc she had some hunches and ended up getting hints so make sure you have your latest version up when you start your membership. Also when emailing people through their system (you can only contact people through their server unlike FTDNA) always include your email so if you discontinue after the 6 months people can continue to contact you (see if you can add it to a bio if they allow as well). Try tag teaming it to save money. All the other suggestions on here are great too. What a wonderful community we have!

Trying to identify Congregation Ben Menashe LES #galicia

Alan Reische
 

I’ve been able to determine that my great grandfather was buried in a Washington Cemetery subplot for the members of Congregation Bnei Menashe (or Menasche) which in 1902 was located at 89 Ridge Street in the LES. He and his family lived close by this location in the late 19th Century. The same congregation or its successors were later relocated to 289 East 4th and 159 Attorney Street.  (This information comes from the WPA survey of churches and synagogues.)

The following names are affiliated with Ben Menashe in the WPA records: Nachlath/Nachlas Zvi/Zevie B'nai Israel Linath Hazedek B'nai/Bnei Menasheh/Menasche

 I’ve reviewed the municipal records for backup to the WPA survey without finding anything further about this congregation.  I’ve unsuccessfully attempted to trace its records through funeral homes that might have historical information. I’ve also searched the YIVO index, again with no results.

Is anyone familiar with it and in particular, with its affiliation with specific towns or regions in Galicia? Based on other records, it appears my great grandfather migrated from the general area of Rzeszow, but I don’t have confirmation of that.

(I’m mindful of the possibility that cemetery plots may from time to time have been purchased by non-members.)

As always, I’ll appreciate any further information members can provide.

Hi all, I should add that Jack's SS application has him from Lodz, but other family records are from areas around Kielce & Rado.  Also, Jack was born in April of 1917, and came to Canada with his father in about 1935-36, and lived in Toronto.
