Hello,

I was just in Kochanova last summer while visiting the town of Tolochin.
I would hardly call Kochanova a town but more like a single long street.
I can only imagine what it looked like in the past as it must have been
smaller.
My family also lived outside in Kochanova and it is the small town near
Tolochin.

Dear cousins,
As someone who has provided translations >from Russian and Lithuanian,
I would appreciate if people requesting a translation specify using exact
language the direction of the translation wanted. I just wasted some time
getting to a document I assumed was in Russian, only to find it in English.
In other words, *into* Russian, *from* Russian, etc., is the preferred
terminology used in the message. Remember, emails are not telegrams.
Thank you.

FHC polish microfilms #general

Ben Forman <ben.forman@...>
 

Hi Guys

Taking some more excellent advice >from my fellow genners, I did a search
of some Polish microfilms and I am looking for some advice on the results:
=
1. I have found microfilms for Konopiska where my KAMM ancestor was born
in 1824, I am therefore hoping that I might find the marriage banns for
his parents Abraham KAMM and Halka SZMUEL in the church records for that
area, I will let you know how I get on.
=
2. For my Posen ancestors, I have found a reference to the Microfilm of
the Naturalised Jews of Posen 1834/1835 I am assuming that this is a
reference to the same publication that Lars Menk and some others have
access to and have already provided me information from.
There is also reference to a list of Posen Jewish Families >from
1800-1850 FHL 1334544 which is in Hebrew and Yiddish, and I was
wondering if anyone had experience or information >from this film as I do
not speak or read Hebrew or Yiddish.

3. I have 2 ancestors born in Ogrodzieniec which I assumed was nr Pilica
as this is where one of their children was born. But it isn't. Does
anyone know what area the Jewish records for this town might be held
under as there are only church records listed on the FHC website.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer

all the best to you all

Re: Question regarding cemetery sections #general

Aaron Fink asks whether the name of the burial society plot indicates
that the deceased came >from that town.

I posted a similar question to this group a few years ago and the
consensus was that burial in the plot owned by a landsmanshaft was not
necessarily an indication of membership in that society. Burial plots
could, I gather, be bought >from landsmanshaft members by non-members.


That said, it's a good guess that the person in question had some sort
of relationship with a member of the landsmanshaft, so it's a lead worth
following.

Ella Barkan <elbarkan@...>
 

I am forwarding Ilan GANOT's message about Mazheik website.

This site will be of interest to Latvian researchers since many Jews moved
from Lithuania to Latvia, including some of my mother's relatives the AVRECH
family who resided in Mazheik and some moved to Liepaja in 1879.

There is a lot of information on this site including pictures and documents.

The memorial website to the destroyed Shtetl of MAZHEIK (Mazeikiai in
Lithuanian) has been transferred >from its temporary private website to its
permanent home: the JewishGen's ShtetLinks.

Mazheik was a small Jewish Shtetl, situated at the northwestern part of
Lithuania, close to the Latvian border.

As with many other Shtetls, Jewish life in Mazheik came to its tragic end in
August 1941, when local Lithuanians initiated and executed mass murder of
most of the local Jewish population.
The MAZHEIK Shtetl Memorial Website was initiated and established by a group
of volunteers, children and grandchildren of Jewish natives of Mazheik,
taking upon them the mission of preserving the memory of this vanished
community.

The new web address of the homepage is:
