My father's cousin joined up after arriving in UK from Vienna -  been part of the kinder-transport. I was able to interview him before he died but it was some time ago and I don't recall all the detail, plus he didn't like to discuss it as in not liking to toot his own horn.  Bottom line he was decorated for his efforts. He could very well have been part of the X-troop.  I'll read the book and thanks for the info.

Thanks, Russ. Actually I was hoping that Itska was the father's name as I was actually looking for someone named Yaacov Okun born in 1888 whose father was Itzhak/Abraham.  I am somewhat confused by the fact that all three generations had the same name.  I thought that children were not named after someone still living. Could the grandfather and father have both died  before their sons were born? 

What I am really trying to find is the common ancestor of both Itzhak/Abraham and my great grandfather identified in a single US document as just Abraham Okun.  The connection is clearly established by DNA. Unfortunately the only birth dates I currently have to work with are Yaacov (Jan 18, 1881) and my Abraham (abt 1874). I know that Itzhak/Abraham and Abraham were not the same person (as the DNA suggests) so am guessing that they were first cousins who were both named after their grandfather.  Any searching suggestions greatly appreciated.


Seeking information about the Comunisteanu and Userovici families- Dorohoi #romania

Shalom all, Shannah Tova!
I'm looking for information about my father's maternal family from Dorohoi- the Userovici family.
My Great Grandmother Yeti Comunisteanu was the daughter of PIncu and Malca Userevici. She was born around 1898 and they lived in Jajia Street, Dorohoi. She married Aharon Comunistianu from Herlau and lived there before she made Aliya to Israel after the Holocaust. We don't know much about the families, so we'll highly appreciate any information about the Userovici and the Comunisteanu families.
Thank you and Shannah Tova,

Shalom Valentin,
Thanks for the help with the map! 
I wasn't able to locate in the map my GGP address: Ghicha Delini 17. Do you have any idea if this street is mentioned in the map, or if not, any clue where I can get some more info about it? 
Also, others in the Family lived on Bogdan street, which isn't in the Jewish area to my best knowledge. Do you have any idea about Jewish life in that area of the village?

Jewish Genealogical Society NY Meeting
Sunday Sept. 12, 2021 at 2 p.m. EDT
Zoom Meeting

Here Comes the 1950 US Census! What to Expect

Speaker: Joel Weintraub

The 1950 United States Census will become public on April 1, 2022. Joel Weintraub will prepare us for its debut by covering such topics as what is a census, who uses the census, census caveats, how the 1950 census was taken, training of enumerators, census sampling, census questions, and a summary of the results. He will conclude with a discussion of his and Steve Morse’s 1950 census location tools, online right now at the stevemorse.org website and, time permitting, will demonstrate searches on the One-Step Unified Tool.
 
Joel Weintraub, a New Yorker by birth, is an emeritus Biology Professor at California State University, Fullerton. He became interested in genealogy over 20 years ago and volunteered for nine years at the National Archives in southern California. Joel helped produce location tools for the 1900 through 1950 federal censuses and the NY State censuses for NYC (1905, 1915, 1925) for the Steve Morse “One-Step” website. He has published articles on the U.S. census and the 72-year rule, as well as on the difficulties of searching Ellis Island passenger records and NYC census records. He has a YouTube channel that has his genealogy (and biology) talks at “JDW Talks.”

Two minor additional pieces of information:

The name "Ratner" (РАТНЕРЪ) in the second column from the left is generally the surname of the mohel who performed the circumcision;
the younger Itsko Itskovich Okun's mother's name was Sora-Bliuma

Of no specific importance is the fact that Okun (ОКУНЬ) is a species of fish, a perch or rockfish.

Hi June,

I am replying to the group because some tips here may be of general interest.

I reproduced your search and found that this record came from the Mogilev Birth Index for Boys 1864-1894 Database. If you click on the name of the database in the results display, you will get a description of the database (https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Belarus/mogilevb.htm). All databases in JewishGen have similar description pages. In this case, the description page is very helpful. It answers your question about the index number (it is the same as the number of the original birth record) and even points you to the film number where the original record can be found (in your case, film 1920801, image 44; this link should take you straight to it    https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSM4-3QLB-2?i=43&cat=708776). Here is an image of the Russian side of the birth record - the facing page has the same birth recorded in Hebrew or Yiddish


It says that the baby was a boy named Itska (family surname OKUN). His father and grandfather were also named Itska. The mother's name was Sora, daughter of Vulf. The birth was on 30 Jun (1888) / 4 Av, and the bris was 7 Jul / 11 Av.

JGS Toronto. Free Virtual Meeting. You can too create a family tree! David Price. Sunday, 19 September 2021 at 10:30 am. ET. #events

Jerry Scherer
 

JEWISH GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY OF TORONTO

 

If the shyest person in a family can
create a family tree, you can too!

 

Speaker: David Price

 

Virtual Meeting: Join from Home

 

Sunday, 19 September 2021, at 10:30 a.m.

 

When I was a teenager five people came up to me claiming that they were my relatives. My father never told me about the Price family history other than he was from Kielts, Poland. I did hear some stories from my four aunts but I forgot about them until I was forty. Then I made up my mind to interview my aunts and those strangers in order to once and for all make a Price family tree. Using LDS films, JRI-Poland, JewishGen, Yad Vashem, Yizkor Books, birth certificates, naturalization forms, Form 30A, 1920 Lodz registration cards, passenger records, maps of Poland, phone directories, Beider’s surname reference of Poland, synagogue references, social media to find people, DNA, other family trees and, the most difficult thing of all for a shy person, interviews, I created a four branch Price family tree. I found out that there were forty-five relatives killed in the holocaust. I interviewed one holocaust survivor my aunts thought was killed in the holocaust seventy-five years earlier and found the only known photograph of his parents (I did a talk on him earlier this year)! I finally found out the age of my late father, z”l. And of course, what everyone wants to hear when looking up their tree, I found the possibility of being related to famous rabbis, including Rashi!

 

David Price Bio:

One day my beloved wife Marilyn made a fateful mistake. Knowing my hobby was doing a family tree, she pointed out an ad in the Canadian Jewish News about membership in the Toronto JGS. I joined. This was how I learned about LDS films of the Jewish birth, marriage and death records of Poland, which I could obtain at the Toronto Reference Library. One snag: the records were hand written in Polish and Russian. I could read difficult handwriting from my experience as a math teacher but I was warned by Gert Rogers that Russian was in Cyrillic, a script that was hard to learn. Luckily I was able to use my math powers since Cyrillic uses the Greek alphabet, often used in my math lessons. I decided to extract the films of Chmielnik for the Kielce-Radom SIG Journal. That publication ceased at about the same time Stan Diamond created JRI-Poland. Talk about luck! I could still enjoy extracting Jewish records of other towns and have a website to submit transcriptions to, which I have done for the last twenty years.

Subj: ViewMate translation request - Ukrainian

I've posted a vital record in Ukrainian for which I need a translation. It is on ViewMate at the following address ...
https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM95188

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.
 

MOTHER’S (maternal) SIDE ZLATKIN

 

My mother’s (maternal) mother’s (maternal) mother Frieda/Freide Zlatkin mother’s (maternal) name my great-great-grandmother, in Kiev (Brezin/Berezen [can’t find current name]), Ukraine, my mother’s great-grandmother, my grandmother’s grandmother’s name was Mollie Joseph born on January 1, 1861, in English, or Mollie Ysaeff the English translation of the Yiddish. Mollie’s husband, thus my great-great-grandfather, my mother’s great-grandfather, my grandmother’s grandfather’s name was Isaac Joseph in English or Isaac/Itzchok/Yitzchak was born on July 20, 1861, Ysaeff the English translation of the Yiddish.

 

It seems the records stop with Mollie and Isaac/Itzchok/Yitzchak. If possible, I would like to find out about Mollie’s relatives and Isaac/Itzchok/Yitzchak relatives and go back as far as possible. According to the website for Bremen, Germany, all the passenger records during the time he would have left were destroyed in WWII. I am trying to find out how she got from either Kiev (Brezin/Berezen [can’t find current name]) or Kherson, Ukraine to Bremen, Germany.


Thank you very much.

My father Otto Perl, was born and raised in Vienna, Austria, where he served in the Austrian Army prior to the Anschluss. He was a survivor of Dachau and Buchenwald Concentration Camps, and was also a Ritchie Boy. He fled to the UK in June 1939, and arrived in the USA in March 1940. He was assigned to Military Intelligence and Counter Intelligence at Camp Ritchie, Maryland. At the very end of this 60 Minutes program, his named appears in the credits. He donated a photograph of himself and other Ritchie Boys to the US Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC which appears in the program.
