Podolia Uzeyds #ukraine

Terry Lasky <tlasky@...>
 

I am trying to determine for 5 different towns which Uzeyd (District)
they belonged to within the Podolia Guberniya. I have researched all
Ukraine-SIG databases and projects and can't find anything. I have been
unable to find any maps that show the boundaries of the Uzeyds within
Podolia in the late 1800's or early 1900's. If anyone can tell me the
correct Uzeyd for these towns or a source that shows the Uzeyd
boundaries I would appreciate it. All of the towns are currently in the
Transnistria area of Moldova (along the Dneister River) but were in the
Ukraine and Podolia guberniya for most of the 19th century and early
20th century. The towns are Frunzauca (Frunzovka), Camenca (Kamenka),
Rashkov, Ribnita (Ribnitsy) and Ofatinti (Vykhvatintsy).

Hello Everyone:
Here is a gold mine of pictures of towns and cities >from Wolin/Volhynia from
the early 20th century. There are a few pictures of synagogues and of the
Jewish community (e.g. Kamien Kashirskiy.) Since it has been posted by an
artist in Ukraine, Volodimir Marchuk, the captions require translation. You
can write to him in English.

Searching KANTOR family - Paberze and Vilna #lithuania

Michael Trapunsky <trapunsky@...>
 

Hi all,

I am trying to find descendants of my KANTOR relatives who originally came
from Paberze, Lithuania and then later on lived in Vilna (Vilnius) and the
surrounding areas in Lithuania.

My great great great great grandparents, Hertz (1776-1844) and Sarah
(1781-1866) KANTOR, lived in Paberze. They had 6 children that I know of:

1- Yakov KANTOR - He had Eliakum and Leib. Leib had Malkah, and Eliakum had
Isaac.

2- Yonah KANTOR - He had a daughter Chana who had Freida (last name unknown).

3- Aharon KANTOR - He had a daughter Pesil who had Hertz Berel and Hinde
(last name unknown).

4- Moshe KANTOR - I know nothing about him.

5- Hirsch KANTOR - He had Hertz, Meir, Tzippy and Fruma. Fruma had Hertzig,
Meir Henoch, Malkah and Sarah (last name unknown).

6- Eliyahu KANTOR (b. 1818) - Married Faiga OGUS (b. 1822) - This is my
family. They had the following children:

a- Mariashe KANTOR - Married Zalman SAPERSTEIN and had Nachum and
Moshe.

b- Shaina Tziviya KANTOR - Married Aharon SHTAIN and had Kayla,
Bella Gutta, Abba Yoseph, Mairiase and Meir Leib.

c- Margola KANTOR - Married Avraham YEDIDE and had Yitzchak,
Shaindel, Yakov Hertz and Clara. I believe that Clara may have moved to
the States or England. Her children were Saul, Irving David and Eli
(last name unknown).

d- Sarah KANTOR - Married Yehuda YESHIA and had Chana Kayla,
Shaina, Golda and Pesil.

e- Eliakum Shimon KANTOR - Married Rivka and had Leizer, Avraham,
Eide, Leah, Esther Sarah, Zalman, and Reuven.

f- Yitzchak KANTOR - I know nothing about him.

g- Shmuel KANTOR - I know nothing about him.

h- Miriam KANTOR - I know nothing about her.

i- Chana Hinde KANTOR (1845-1925) - Married David SHER. They were
my great great grandparents. They had Malka, Golda, Yakov Reuven, Mairiase,
Shmuel Hertz, and Eliakum Gavriel (1883-1938).

Except for the descendants of Chana Hinde KANTOR and Dovid SHER (my
immediate family) I do not know anything else about the families listed
here. I was led to believe that they may have all perished in the Holocaust
but do not know for sure.

I would love to hear back >from anyone who might possibly know of a
connection or anything at all about these families.

Thank you very much,

Russian revision lists for Bialystok, Bielsk and Sokolka #poland

MWGordon2@...
 

Joan Goldstein inquired yesterday about Russian revision lists for
Bialystok, Bielsk and Sokolka uyezds in the Belarus Archives.

Nine years ago, in response to a written letter to the Archives, I received
an extract typed in Russian (not a copy) of a family listing in the 1855
Census of Jewish residents for Bielsk Podlaski. This was a very useful
record, since it expanded my Chrabolowski (changed to Gordon) ancestry back
two more generations to about 1765. The Archives noted that this was the
only record in their collection for my family -- a statement that seemed
unlikely to be accurate.
