Lyjonsky Lyons Family in the UK #unitedkingdom

Steve
 

I have a good DNA relationship to this family, but I am not sure exactly how. 
I am interested in finding Parents / Siblings of Barnett Lyjonsky (1884-1962) AND his wife Annie Lechmann (1881-1949). 
I believe they are from Eastern Europe and came to the UK sometime in the later 19th / earlier 20th century.
Barnett was in the fur business, he and his wife had around 5 children (Morris, Libby and Mark that I know of).
Mark later changed his name to Lyons (he also may have had the name Lynshansky). Mark I believe also moved to NYC.
Appreciate any additional information or insight. Thanks.

Gesher Galicia News Update from Ukraine for Wednesday March 9th #galicia #general #poland #ukraine

Steven Turner
 

1. From Mykhailo Zubar, Gesher Galicia's representative in Ukraine
Vinnytsia, 14:30 Ukraine time [12:30 GMT/UTC, March 9]

Yesterday I did not send a report, because we had a lot of household chores to do. Our daily life has slowly begun to recover here. I even started getting back to my tasks on materials from the Shevchenko Museum in Kyiv, some of which I can do online, as well as coordinating the work of the team in my department. All my colleagues are now scattered around Ukraine and several of them have even left for Poland. But we must try to hold on to some things from our pre-war life so as to be distracted from what is happening in our country. Of course, in Vinnytsia it is quiet and calm, all the shops are open here, and people walk in the streets or drive cars. Compared to the emptiness which Kyiv had become, with the rumble of artillery constantly being heard and the air defense system in action, the situation here seems quite normal. Now, though, we are constantly thinking about those who remained in Kyiv and its suburbs. All these suburbs are destroyed. Some of my friends in the most damaged suburbs have been sitting in the basements of their houses for a week now without access to medicines, food or water. They cannot get out because it is not safe, and there are Russian troops in their towns who won't allow civilians to leave, in effect taking them hostage. Every few hours I write to general group chats online to know that everyone is alive and everything is in order in Kyiv. Today, it appears that some humanitarian corridors may be opened, through which at least a part of the civilian population can move to territory controlled by Ukrainian. I have to hope that all my friends will be fine. For a week now, there has been no connection with my students from Mariupol - the city on the Sea of Azov - which is subject to a total blockade. All the efforts that the local authorities have made in the last seven years to make it a prosperous European city are now destroyed. The city is in ruins from the constant shelling by Russian troops. So while we are in relative safety, we still cannot sleep peacefully. Even the silence, after the shelling in Kiev, is a little frightening.

2. From Piotr Gumola, Gesher Galicia's representative in Poland
Warsaw, 13:00 Warsaw time [12:00 GMT/UTC, March 9]

I have been working, in a personal capacity, with a volunteer group in Warsaw, headed by a Ukrainian coordinator, Yulia. We are preparing and sending large packages of supplies, including medicines, to Ukraine. The consignments go off to Ukraine two or three times a week. The refugee situation is also becoming critical now in Warsaw. The train stations in Warsaw are overcrowded, with hundreds of people arriving every hour. Warsaw is running short of accommodation, so there is an urgent need to redirect people to other towns as well.

(end of message)

3. From Vasyl Yuzishin in Lviv
Lviv, 12:15, Lviv time [10:15 GMT/UTC, March 9]

I am happy to know that people are concerned about me. Here in Lviv there are an incredible number of refugees, but at least here it is relatively safe for now. Some of the time, I am driving refugees to the border in my car. Everywhere in Ukraine where refugees are fleeing there is total chaos.

(end of message)

4. From Kateryna Mytsan, former deputy director of the State Archive of Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast (DAIFO), and archival advisor to Gesher Galicia

Lviv, 09:15, Lviv time [08:15 GMT/UTC, March 9]

I am trying to stay strong. As you know, we had two families coming to stay with us in Ivano-Frankivsk, as refugees from Kharkiv. Now, I myself have had to move to Lviv, to my sister’s place, to make room in the apartment in Ivano-Frankivsk for people fleeing Kyiv. This is happening all over western Ukraine.

J-P58 genetic testing #dna

info@...
 

My client is interested in genetic testing. His cousin tested in 2009 as a part of The Genographic Project and his results came back as J-M267 (J1). What level of Y-DNA testing would you recommend to identify a little bit deeper into the subclades (targeting specifically J-P58)? Are there any organizations offering free testing (Cohenim)?

Re: Any information on the map locations of the jewish ghettos set up in uzgorhrod #ukraine

Bruce Drake
 

I don't know if this helps, but I saw the following:

 

From 45aid society, founded by a group of child Holocaust survivors:

 

On 21 April 1944 two ghettos were established outside the town. One in the ghettos was in a brick factory, which belonged to the Jewish Moschkowitch family and the other in a timber warehouse, owned by the Gluck family, who were also Jewish. Jews from the surrounding area were brought into the ghettos and approximately 25,000 people were held there. Other member of the Boys from neighbouring towns and villages were also taken to the ghetto in Uzhorod, among them Rushka Swartz from Seredne, Moric Friedman from Velky Berezny, now Velykyi Bereznyi and Lazar Brandt from Medzilaborce.

 

In June 1944, the majority of the ghetto’s inhabitants were sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and extermination camp in occupied Poland.

 

From YIVO encylopedia:

During the Hungarian reoccupation of the region, from 1939 until the end of World War II, local Magyars spearheaded the persecution of Ungvár Jewry. In 1944, the Jews of Ung county were concentrated and sent to a ghetto; this policy began on 16 April, and two days later Jews were forced into a brick factory and lumberyard outside the city. Some 25,000 persons were confined with inadequate supplies of food and water; soon, the outbreak of epidemics provided the mayor with an excuse for deportations. The first transport left for Auschwitz on 17 May, the fifth and last on 31 May 1944.

Hi Carol -
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.  It took me a while to get the updated contact information.

Rabbi Mordechai Motola specializes in locating Jewish graves on the Mount of Olives from before the establishment of the State of Israel and were destroyed/desecrated by the Jordanians.
Please send him all the information about whose grave you are looking for, together with all death/burial records you have.
His email address is: dovevmm1@...
Good luck and let us know how things progress.

Re: Twins Separated at Birth :: Translation Help #records #lithuania #translation

Jill Whitehead
 

I have the same things in my family. My great grandfather Aaron Guttenberg was recorded as being born in 1850 in Rajgrod, NE Poland, with a twin brother Jankiel. Jankiel disappears from view and could have died at birth or as an infant. Aaron's British naturalisation record in the 1890's shows he was born in 1847, which fits in with his subsequent marriage and births of his own children. Was Jankiel born/died in 1847 or 1850? We will never know if he was a twin or not. 

Also Aaron's mother Cyza Malka Muskatenblit also appears to have been a twin or born in nearby years to her brother Herz in Rajgrod. They were either both born in 1819 or 1820, or one was born in one year and the other in the later year. 

None of Cyza or Herz's children, or their descendants, were twins. As twins tend to run in families, and they do not appear to do so here apart from in the two early generations in Poland, one can draw one's own conclusions, which in Aaron's case was to avoid the Tsar's draft. He came to UK in c1865-67 with his wife and baby daughter - if he had been born in 1850 he would have been only 15 years of age in 1865. If he was born in 1847 he would have been 18 years of age.

IGRA Free Webinar “Jerusalem Census – 1947” #events #israel

Elena Bazes
 

Join the Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA) for our upcoming free webinar “Jerusalem Census – 1947”  by Rose Feldman on March 27, 2022, 7 pm Israel Time, 12 pm ET. This webinar will be in Hebrew.

The Hebrew Community Committee of Jerusalem, which was part of Knesset Israel, conducted a census of residents of Jerusalem during the months of February-July 1947. The census included about 80,000 residents from day age to 106 years. Each apartment or house has an individual card. The families’ reports indicate where they were born and how long they have been in Jerusalem and who owns the apartment. The quality of the information depends on the willingness of the people to participate in the census and whether the information was provided by the family or neighbors.

Rose Feldman is in charge of developing new databases for Israel Genealogy Research Association [IGRA]. She has lectured at ten IAJGS conferences starting in 2003, at various annual seminars and branch meetings of IGRA and IGS, at the Israeli Association for Archives and Information workshop, and the genealogy workshop of the Central Zionist Archives. In 2017 she was the recipient of IAJGS Award for Volunteer of the Year. Rose was one of the three coordinators of the Montefiore Censuses Project.

Re: How Many Volumes of Pinḳas ha-ḳehilot. have been published? #general

I don’t know the exact amount, but they are all published by Yad Vashem. Perhaps check their online store and check how many are for sale in total.
As for complete collections in libraries, I don’t know for California, but the Center for Jewish History and NYPL Jewish Division both have complete sets, as far as I know.

Re: Training for Shochet #belarus #ukraine

jerome-yankowitz@...
 

Love to hear more about this topic as my grandfather "Schocat" or Shochet or Shochat or other came from Moletai/Malat Lithuania. He came as a child but his father was killed in Lithuania in the 1910s and I have little info. He didn't describe him as a butcher but as a peddler of grocery type items. Did the name always apply to the profession of butcher?

Hi Jewishgenners

Here are my posts from my visit to Ukraine in 2016, which include visits to Jewish places of interest and the ORT school in Kiev.

Also, watch the Zoom and interview with Russian and Ukrainian specialist Wojciech Konończuk on Ukraine:
https://youtu.be/zgtobLvPwRM

I was in contact with a senior teacher at the ORT school in Kiev, and this what she wrote yesterday:

Dear Eli, I remember you and that peaceful summer day when we met and spoke about our beautiful school and students’ projects we joined. Now life here is different because of war we could imagine only in nightmare. I didn’t leave my country and with my husband live in the countryside outside Kyiv. Thank you for praying that gives forces to live and to survive! Hope only for the victory!


Glory to Ukraine !
