There's a difference between purchasing a dead soldier's identity and simply using/taking it.   Paying for the name is like buying the Brooklyn Bridge instead of just pitching your tent on it.

The family folklore says our original last name was Dokshytsky - our current surname was purchased from the family of a dead solider.

Would it be reasonable for a family to change their last name during this period, particularly by purchasing the papers of a dead soldier? Does anyone have any suggestions for uncovering more evidence?

Dear Chuck,

Since the town of Kovel is currently in Ukraine, I believe Alex put out a website for his recent record index scan. I had tried to translate the website from what I had seen on the FB group he posted to with no avail.

Would you happen to know the site that I can try from the PC to see if I have luck with that attempt?

Thank you for your assistance.

Schalamuk, Shalmuk, Salmuk, Szalmuk etc. #names #russia

JewishGen readers,
My grandfather came to the United States in early 1900 with the not-so-common surname "Shalmuk".  I’ve seen it spelled several other ways, like Schalamuk, Szalmuk and Salmuk. I've met Schalamuk cousins in South America and the U.S.  I'm sure others with that name fled Europe for other destinations.  I'd like to hear from others with that family surname.  
Thanks...

I have information about his wife’s family (Meyer from Drachenbronn) two generations and more beyond her. They did not get married in Drachenbronn or any nearby town, and I’ve searched a lot of them, but I believe they were married before they immigrated. In January I sent the Livingston Masonic Library a check with a letter asking if they had his application, but if I ever hear from them I don’t expect to learn anything new.

 

Where else can I search? I don’t think I’m missing anything obvious, but I’m stumped. Does anyone have any suggestions?

When we were locating the graves of my great- grandfather (Shiff) and great-great grandfather (Lev) I seem to remember there being three different burial organisations (two Ashkenazi - different orthodoxies; and one Sephardic).  Where they are buried, there was no sign of destruction/ desecration.

Re: Has anyone found useful results from this newspaper resource? #general

Lee Jaffe
 

I had a lot of success with ChroniclingAmerica. I found this resource after a JewishGen program about searching local records. My Schwartz branch lived in Perth Amboy NJ in the early part of the 20th c.  After a little trial and error, I’ve managed to find more than 100 articles and notices about my family. Some items were front page news, as when one of my mother’s uncles was arrested for stealing his mother’s jewelry or when another uncle was killed when he was struck crossing the street. One obituary furnished the names of all of my great-grandmother’s siblings and their father.   My grandparents’ marriage was in the society pages, as was a brief item about my great-grandparents attending a lecture by Eugene Debs. These were the days when minor events were reported: a 7 year old’s birthday party’s guest list including my grandfather and a future NJ attorney general. I read about my grandfather’s exploits in semi-pro basketball. My teenage grandparents were listed among the young people at a party. My newly-wed grandmother—Mrs L Schwartz — as a guest at a card party. I gained a lot of useful insights about their lives from reading these.  If you can find a paper for the town where your family lived, I highly recommend taking advantage.  It can bring their stories to life.
