Re: Help with place name on 1921 UK census form please #names #unitedkingdom #poland

Hello Ruvane - Don't jump too quickly to Biala Podlaska. Another large city near Krakow was Biala, merged in 1951  with Bielitz across the small river to be known as Bielsko Biala.

My grandmother spent her teenage years there and I have visited several times with various family members. The first time I visited was1988, before the Berlin Wall came down, I was driving my car with UK license plates. I followed another car down a street and was pulled over by two policemen who fined me the equivalent of 25p - 30 cents. I never found out what I did wrong. I think it was having foreign plates.

Re: Identify building and location of an early group photo? #photographs #usa

Michele Lock
 

You can try contacting the Jewish Museum of Maryland, which is located in Baltimore. I know they keep archives of synagogue records, and I suspect they also have records of Jewish communal organizations. 

I agree that this is a photo from 1925 to the early 1930s, based on the women's hairstyles and dress. The photo does seem to have been taken in some type of courtyard or atrium.

Re: 1921 Census may have removed bricks. Is this my Zilbert family - Kaunas, Lithuania #lithuania #records

Rachel, 
The given name Yehoshua (Joshua) (you noted your document has the spelling Yehoshue) doesn't translate to Jankel/Yankel in Yiddish, in a search of the JewishGen Given Names Database. Jankel is a Yiddish name for Yaakov (Jacob).

But a person could have had several Yiddish and secular nicknames. Does "Jankel" appear in any family documentation you have found? 
A Hebrew name sounding similar to Yehoshua is Yeshayahu/Yeshayo (Isaiah). Those two names have at least one Yiddish nickname in common, though: "Shaye".

Mazel tov on breaking the brick wall between "Russia" and Kovno, Lithuania! I'm also looking for ancestors there, who seemed to have migrated back and forth from the former Kovno Gubernia to Latvia, making the puzzle more complex. I'm somewhat familiar with Silber/Zilber in the LitvakSig records, having come across the record you posted.

You probably know that name spellings could vary widely. We are reading transliterations based on input from the named person and the clerk who wrote them down.

Re: How to find UKRAINE birth and marriage records #ukraine #records #russia

Gary Pokrassa,

There is another town with the same name as the one in Volyn - Rivne / Rovnoe  approx 30 miles SSW of what was Elisavetgrad. My maternal GM might have come from there, but she only told me Elisavetgrad. I was told about Rivne by her great niece, who lived in Elisavetgrad pre and post war as a child and made Aliyah in the Gorbachev era. However, this cousin of mine also said that our mutual GGF was a jeweler in Elizavetagrad, but he didn't appear in a list of Jewelers so who knows where they lived! I am not sure who it was that lived there but I am contact with another Brizinov family from the same town, but they have not done DNA testing. 

I can see the town of Rivne / Rovnoye on Google Maps but I cannot find out what district it was listed as in Alex's scans past the title of Elizavetgrad. Consequently, I am stuck with hundreds of pages of documents looking for the name of Bresenov / Brizinov.  Do you have any idea what ledgers towns in the approximate area of this Rivne/ Rovnoe  might be in? I think that the town might be a "county seat" at this point, but maybe not earlier on.

Re: Hebrew Translation to English needed from marriage document #records #translation

Dubin, David M. MD
 

The handwriting is tough. Best guess:
Sunday the first of Sivan 5689 ( =1929)
new york
groom: Yitzchak (=Isaac, often Anglicized to Isidore), then a second name I cannot read for the life of me, son of Herz
bride: Leah daughter of Moshe (=Moses)
witnesses: Yehuda son of Josef & David son of Moshe

i’d like to see how others read the groom’s middle name.

Re: Hebrew Translation to English needed from marriage document #records

binyaminkerman@...
 

Like Steve said a clearer picture would be very helpfu, but I'll try my best attempt at reading the names. 
The bride is clearly Leah daughter of Moshe.
Groom is Yitzchak Yechiel? Son of Yosef?
City is New York? 
The groom's middle name and father's name are basically guesses. The first word of the city is clearly New and the second word is the right length to possibly be York, and it's clearly in the USA.
Hope that helps.

Help identifying town name from English census-taker's writing! #poland #unitedkingdom

Lesley
 

Does anyone recognise what this town name is on my grandfather's 1921 UK census record? I had believed that he was born in Kutno, Poland (from his British naturalisation certificate), but that is certainly not what it says here. It may be a small town in the district of Kutno. He may have forgotten that he'd given the larger town name In 1919 when he applied for British citizenship (just speculating).  In the 1911 census it was not required to provide a town name so it just said "Russian, Poland". I have looked on the JG map all around the Kutno area but nothing looks quite right. The only possibility I can see might be Zychlin but it doesn't really look close enough in spelling, even taking into account different versions of the name. There are very few other words in the census-taker's handwriting with similar-looking letters with which I could compare. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: How to find UKRAINE birth and marriage records #ukraine #records #russia

Happy New Year,  I am researching my paternal grandfather and his parents. Harry/Hersz PASTERNAK , born in Kuty 1904  Siblings Reisel Pasternak born Kuty 1906, Scheindel Pasternak born 189 , Ruben Pasternak, b 1913 and Jutta Pasternak born 1919.  Parents names may be Ida Reif and Leo Pasternak (from their US death certificates of children) . I can not find any vital records for any of the above in Ukraine etc.  
I believe no vital records survived from Kuty but wondering if there are any other next steps I can take.  Since Kuty is a border town and was a war zone around 1918- 1920, many left for a time, and  parents may have died  elsewhere. Would hiring a person on the ground be useful or a fools errand?

Do you recognize any of the family members in the attached? They are part of my grandmother’s family in Poland. She lived in Bialystok before she moved to Israel before the war. Her entire family was lost and these were some of the pictures she had brought with her.

 

In the seated photo, my grandmother, Mindle (Mina) Yablonko is seated first from left with her mother behind her, most likely hugging the younger brother Wolf.

 

In the standing photo, same family members.
