I don't agree with "Yosef".  In many of these documents. the word following "the father" referred to the place the father was from.
It looks like "from Minsk" to me.  
There's an unexpected flourish at the end of Minsk -- but I still think it's Minsk.  it would help if you were to upload the whole document so we could see other records in Hebrew from this page.  (it's Hebrew, not Yiddish)

Re: Where were Jewish people in West Kirby buried? #unitedkingdom #general

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain (JGSGB) has a list of cemeteries on its website by local community.

As does Jewish Gen's JCR-UK.  The Liverpool records can be found at www.jewishgen.org/jcr-uk/Cemeteries/Liverpool

There are also individual Jewish cemetery websites for Liverpool which you can Google. Some are better recorded than others. I have relations in Rice Lane and Long Lane which have been recorded, as has Deane Road (which got public funding for this purpose) but most of my family lie in Green Lane, which has not been recorded, and I understand a lot of information has been lost (or not yet found) about this site.

Re: Geogrphical location of Lumsden/Lumsen Poland #poland #general

Hi Gillian,

This sounds like Lomza in Lomza Gubernia in NE Poland. Many people from the adjoining Suwalki and Lomza Gubernias in NE Poland came to the UK in the 1860s and 1870s, and many went to Northern England or Scotland. All eight of my great grandparents came from this area and went to respectively to Edinburgh, Manchester, Liverpool and Hull (later Sheffield).

Two Different Hebrew Given Names or Wrong Person? #names #belarus

Brad Rubin
 

I found a birth record from 1882 in Belarus, written in both Russian and Yiddish, that I thought matched my great-grandfather.  The birth date generally matches other records.  The mother’s name (Shifra) generally matches other records (Sara/Soufia/Soufra). 
 
Numerous other records and headstones show his father’s given name is Meshulem Feivish.  I assume Meshulem is his Hebrew name and Feivish is his Yiddish name.  The Russian translation of the birth record gives the father’s name as Fayvish Movshov Rubenchik.  However, the Yiddish part of the record refers to him as Yosef Feivish son of Moshe Rubentzik.  This is the only record I’ve seen that uses the name Yosef.  Is there some connection between the given names Meshulem and Yosef?  Is it possible for someone to have two Hebrew names, one that appears in a birth record and another used everywhere else?  Or, does this suggest that despite all the other matching information, I have the wrong person?  — Brad Rubin

Re: Another request for 1921 England census Polish Russian place name suggestion #unitedkingdom #poland #general

Hi Nettie,
Have you checked to see if your relative has a "Supplementary" file to their
naturalisation document at the National Archives? It would begin with HO
144/...
If so, these files contain a lot more information than the straight
naturalisation document which is often an HO 134/... and this might answer
your question. If the file is closed for a 100 years, complete an FOI
request. I have had success with them being opened.

Can you identify 1920s Slovakia employment by this uniform? #austria-czech

This photo of family member was probably taken in the Kesmarok area in the 1920s.  I would like to know what kind of job she had. Perhaps you have seen similar uniforms from this region/period and might have an idea. 
 
Thank you for your suggestions!

Warshofsky in Chicago #belarus #names

Karen Gramigna-Warren
 

I’m trying to possibly find siblings by looking at Tombstones and other data and see if there is a possible relationship.  I’m working on the surname Warshofsky from Motol, Belarus.  As many of you have experienced this surname has many variations as well as “Americanized” variants.  My husband’s family shorten theirs to Warren but I’ve seen Warner, Worsham, Warshan, Warshaw and I’m sure I will find others. 

 

I have 2 individuals David Louis Warshofsky and Sarah Gittel Worsowesky both born in Motol, traveled to Chicago and are buried in Waldheim Cemetery, Illinois in the Anshe Motele Section

 

David Louis Warshofsky went by David Warner.  Born on 15 Apr 1891, on his ship record to the US, stated leaving his father Alter Worocewicki in Motol, Grodno.  His tombstone states he is the son of Pinchas Eliahu.

 

Sarah Gittel Worsowesky married a Hershel Warshafsky in 1910.  Hershel/Harry’s naturalization papers stated Sara was born in Motel on 14 Jul 1889 and came to the US in 1906.  On her death certificate it stated her father was Alter Warshafsky and on her tombstone it lists her father as Pinchos Eliyahu.

 

Another similarity between them, David had 3 children, and Sara had 5, both named a daughter Dorothy and a son Irving.

 

So here are my questions:

  1. What is the relationship between the name Alter and Pinchas Eliahu?
  2. With all this similar information, Alter, Pinchas Eliahu, born in Motol, Warshafsky/Warshofsky Worocewicki/Worsowesky, children’s named Dorothy and Irving, can I assume they are probably siblings?

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

Family and DNA
 

I don't know what else might be available, but on Wikipedia Ukraine the files for Rivne/Rivnoye would be here

https://uk.wikisource.org/wiki/Архів:Єврейське_містечко/Херсонська_губернія#Єлисаветградський_повіт

and the 1 metric file listed in that place is also referenced via the "archive" page

https://uk.wikisource.org/wiki/Архів:ДАКрО/187

So there it is included in in Yelizavetgrad uzed, & I'm posting this publicly in case anybody else needs the info, or can tell us more about what might be available.

Seeking information on Jacob LISHINSKY/LASHLEY #usa

Felissa Lashley
 

Dear all,
I have a couple of clippings that indirectly refer to my father being
a "former lightweight eastern intercollegiate boxing champion" but
have not been able to find anything more primary or detailed.

Jacob LISHINSKY changed his name to Jack LASHLEY in about 1930. He
attended Brooklyn College from 1927-1934 or so working part time and
going to school. Except for 1-2 years in St. Joseph, MO in 1923-24, he
lived in Brooklyn, NY till 1941 when he moved to the Bronx. In the
1980s he moved to Bloomington, IL.

Many many years ago I looked thru the microfilms of the school
newspapers at Brooklyn College but was unable to find anything.
Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I could find out more about
this aspect of his life? I am near the point of completing this
section of my family history and story to send to the printers.

Thank you so much for any suggestions or help you can provide.

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.
