Looking for great-grandfathers Rapoport and Vigodsky from Minsk #belarus #general

Oleg Gurov
 

Hello, I am looking for relatives and info regarding my greatgrandfathers. It happened that both of them were from Minsk and almost  peers and were Juws. Their grandchildren, my Mother and Father met in Moscow dozens of years later. So the connection is lost and I am try to find info about my routs:

RAPOPORT EFIM MIHAILOVICH (born in 1899), he had a brother MICHAIL, who was little bit younger. EFIM was a military engineer and died in Moscow in early 60ies. 

VIGODSKY MARK YAKOVLEVICH (born in 1898), he was a famous mathematician, lived mainly in Moscow and died in 1965.

Thank you for your help!

Pre-1900, it can be challenging to confirm if an immigrant one finds on a ship passenger list to the US, is the relative that you are searching for. There was not much definitive information about these immigrants on these earlier lists, such as where their last residence was, who they are going to, what their final destination was, who paid for their ticket, etc. For the immigrant woman that you found traveling on her own in Dec. 1898 - does the list say where she is heading? Does it have her marital status on the list? Any other information? Or is she someone who has the same name and age of your great grandmother, but not much more that is definitive?

These ocean voyages to the US were not easy to endure, let alone for a woman who is about six months pregnant. The voyages took 12-16 days, and traveling in steerage was uncomfortable (and that is a euphemism). There is the also the cost for these voyages. 

Another thought - is it Ancestry or FamilySearch who is suggesting that the woman who came in Dec. 1898 to the US is your great grandmother? These hints are often wrong, and need to be considered carefully. Both websites often mix people up, when they have the same name and similar ages.

I have a large collection (250+) of letters written between 1922 and
1929 >from family members (Weiser) living in Munkacs, Hungary. The
letters are written in Hungarian and in Yiddish. I'm looking for any
advice on how to get these translated, as they are too large a
collection to post on viewmate.

I’d also consider donating the collection to any university program that study’s Yiddish language or Eastern European history.
 
Thanks!

Re: Rabbi Dov Berisch SPIRA of Bardejov #rabbinic

Moishe Miller
 

Hello,

I can tell you that your  Rabbi Dov Berisch SPIRA (c1785 - c1830) was not a son or grandson of the Bnei Yissoschur, R' Hersh Mylech Spira (1783-1841). And, as the Bnei Yissoschur's father was Pesach LANGSAM, it is not likely that they were siblings. 

However, there is a Spira family from right over the mountains, that lived in Tylicz, Galicia, Poland, and it was common for Galician Jews to travel to/from Saros county, in Slovakia, where Bardejov (also called Bardfeld) was located. This Spira family from Tylicz is also linked to the Deresiewicz family from the same town of Tylicz.

Stay safe,

Cognate of Russian Personal Name #russia #names

fbogus@...
 

My husband's grandmother's matzevah reads Rivka bat R'Hirsch Yonah. A 2nd cousin's family tree lists the father as "Zakhar." The family originates in Kamianets-Podilskyi but we know that some members made their way to Moscow and Vilnius, in addition to the US. I don't know Russian at all, but I would have expected that Zakhar would be Zecharia.
The cousin who created that tree is Moscow educated so that may explain his (and his family's) use of a Russian personal name. Is Zakhar a cognate of Hirsch or is this another case of the secular name having no connection to the Hebrew name?

Town Name in Latvia #latvia

rklegon@...
 

I am doing some research on part of my family that comes from Latvia.  I've found a passenger list (1912) that has the town name written as Welisny and/or Weliony.  I'm curious if anyone may know what town this may be?  Thanks!

Re: Can I use the given name Gerson to trace family members? #names

The Becker's Email
 

Consider ordering your father's application for a social security number.  Also your grandparents if they had one.  The application asked for the place of birth of the applicant and the applicant's parents.  The application may have the town.   Order the original application, not the extract.

Could she have been working for some family that was on the same ship?  The fact that she apparently returned to England fairly soon after arriving in the states suggested this possibility.  I know that pregnant women and even just married women often did not work outside the family at the time, but she may have been an exception.  If the birth was premature, that would explain why her pregnancy did not show at the time.

JGASGP Meeting #announcements

Marilyn Golden
 

Date:  Sunday, January 2, 2022

Time: 1:00 PM check in, chat, and schmooze (Optional)

Official program starts promptly at 1:30

Speaker:  Speaker: Gil Bardige, Experienced Genealogist and Speaker

Topic:  Help!  I just got my Autosomal DNA Results and I'm Confused"

 

Gil Bardige has been a genealogist for over 40 years, with 14 years of experience in DNA. He has spoken at many JGS as well as at IAJGS. You may have heard him speak locally or assisted you at mentoring sessions. He has tested at all 4 major companies and is a Project Administrator or Co-Admin at FTDNA for 3 projects including Jewish R1b.
Prior to retirement, Gil was Business Development Executive for Trane, traveling nationally for nearly 12 years making presentations to Fortune 250 corporations. Gil is high-energy, humorous, speaks clearly & makes sure that the audience participates.

 

Topic: Help!  I just got my Autosomal DNA Results and I'm Confused"

 

This presentation will provide specific guidance on how to use DNA/Genetic Genealogy as an effective tool in your genealogy tool belt. Gil will provide examples from the four major DNA testing companies to clarify ethnicity estimates and give a detailed review of what matches mean at each company. He will outline the recommended steps to take for prioritizing and contacting your DNA matches. The end goal is to have your match help with your family tree and, hopefully, provide information, photographs, documents, stories, etc., that you don't already have. Gil will review the DNA tests available, what you can expect from the results, and who should test. At the end of the presentation, you will be able to say, "Now I get it...I know what to do."  This is for beginners and people who tested and are just overwhelmed and frustrated.


If you have DNA results and don't know what to do, GIL is the one to listen too! He will walk you through the process to analyze your results. 

This meeting is for members only.  All members joining now will receive membership through December 31, 2022.
We are continuing virtual meetings until further notice! 
Check our website for complete membership info., benefits, and future programming. www.jgasgp.org.
Non-members have access to our comprehensive beginner’s guide.  Contact me prior to the meeting with any questions.
I need to be aware if you join prior the morning of the meeting to send you the link. Meetings are recorded for members only.

Could she conceal the pregnancy from the immigration inspectors?   Would admit her if they knew she was pregnant (women travelling alone generally weren't admitted until someone came to claim them, even when they weren't pregnant)?

If the answer to both questions is no, then you've confused the records of two different women, perhaps with the same name.

If she was able to conceal the pregnancy shortly before the birth, that suggests it was a premature birth.  But if it wasn't, then she was already pregnant when she got married, and the reason for travel might have been part of an effort to conceal the pregnancy from her husband or his family.

Re: Kronenberg and Chemerinsky #names

For those discussing this Kronenberg thread, I am the administrator of the Kronenberg surname project on FamilyTreeDNA. If you are a Kronenberg, please join our group.

What I have learned is that there are some distinct lines around Poland. My Kronenberg line came from Koden, up on the current border of Belarus near Brest. There are numerous branches from Koden and Brest and all have similar given name patterns. There is another distinct line from Warsaw and another line from the Slawatycze area. I have all of these lines drawn out on my Ancestry.com tree in order to see if I can find a thread between the two. So far, with the FTDNA group, I have identified two distinct Y male lines but everyone in every group seems to have an autosomal relationship. Please contact me directly if I can be of some help.
