After Sept. 1 1939 many Jews tried to escape to the area of Poland which was
conquered by the Russians up to the [time of the] agreement between Molotow and
Riventrop.
Many of them, as the Jews who lived in these "Polish" regions before WW2
have been asked by the Russian Authorities if they want to stay in Soviet
Union or not.
These who answered that they do not want to stay in Russia were suspected as
not loyal, and were deported to inner Russia.
These who said that they want to stay there were murdered later by the
Germans.
In the first stage the deported were sent to Siberia, and after an agreement
between the Polish government in London and the Russians many of them were
deported to the southern regions, in "better" conditions.
Many Jews of Poland were transferred just in the beginning of the war to
inner Russia.
According to an agreement in 1946 many Jews who could prove that before Sept
1939 they were Polosh citizens were allowed to return to Poland.
Most of them left Poland as soon as they could.

English translation for a name: "Kreincie Ruchel" #general

Dear Fellow Jewishgenners,

A first and middle name on an 1892 birth record found in JRI-Poland
records is "Kreincie Ruchel". What would be the approximate English
equivalent of that name?

I have tried the various Jewishgen resources suggested by a Jewishgen

Thank you in advance.

Searching for Family graves in West Roxbury, Massachusetts #general

stephen field
 

My mame is Stephen Field. My E mail address is:
stemarfie@...
The following are names of relatives I am looking for. Other relatives are
buried in West Roxbury, Massachusetts at the Adath Jeshurun Cemetery on
Grove Street. They must be somewhere in the vicinity of the other members
of the family. Their relatives are buried down on the left on the second
aisle, in toward the middle of the cemetery. I was told that they are
buried down further in the same section or maybe to the right. They have
been gone a long time so their stones may be somewhat unreadable.

Their names, birth dates, death dates are as follows.

Louis Pecker
Husband of Lena (Schneiderman)Pecker
Born August 18, 1882?
Died ? 1960

Harry Schneiderman
Husband of Rebecca Schneiderman

Rebecca Schneiderman
Wife of Harry Schneiderman

Died ?

Reuben Stevelman
Husband of Anna (Chanci)(Schneiderman) Stevelman
Born June 1881
Died April 27, 1921

If you find the section where they are buried please let me know what
section #, lot #, grave # of each of them. It has been difficult for me
to go there and find them after having two operations.
I hope you find them, and thank you.

Re: Deported or Fled to Bukhara? #galicia

Joseph Hirschfield
 

One family I know found itself in Tashkent, Uzbekistan under the following
circumstances. They were Polish Jews who fled eastward into Russia before
WW II began. The Russians were very suspicious of these refugees, suspecting
German spies; therefore, almost everyone was deported to Siberia. After the
Germans attacked Russia, some Jewish refuges in Siberia, themselves included,
were sent to Uzbekistan and the younger males were expected to fight against
the Germans.

Re: Conscripted at age 5? #belarus

My father and his brother immigrated >from Joneskelis, Lith. to NYand t to
Louisville, Ky in 1909 at the ages of 8 and 10 altho Ellis Records show
ages 6 for both. I have no hard data but believe ages given had something
to do with threats of military conscription. My grandfa, who served in the
army, had immigrated in 1906 to avoid being recalled into the army. I also
found Ellis Island DB listed a 12yo son Smuel Weiner whom I never heard of
but now find stories that my grandmother was also accompanied by an orphan
who was trained to use Weiner name and call her Mother. I have no idea who
this was nor where he was going. So when in doubt I assume data is no better
than the source, the transcriber and sometimes circumstances.

Howard Schwerdlin asks:

I was reviewing the 1850 Vilnius (ALD) Revision list and found a possible
ancestor, but I don't understand the listing.
The date is 10 December 1850, and lists Abram Sverdlin son of Honon as
Conscripted (reason left), but it also shows 2 years old for age last
revision with 1847 listed as the year. I know that this means he was born
1845 (between 2 censuses in 1847), but could a 5 year old be conscripted?
There is a story that my great-grandmother Shayndel Kuritz Woronoff (born
1856) had a brother who was conscripted when he was 7, and never heard
from again. This was in Ukraine, but I don't see why the same thing
couldn't have happened to Jews elsewhere in the Russian Empire.

It's also possible there was a mistake in the records. Maybe he was 12 in
1847, instead of 2, or maybe it's a 9 which looks like a 2. Being drafted
at age 12 or 15 was not unusual at all.

If he WAS really conscripted when he was 5, I very much doubt if he would
have survived to be your ancestor, or remembered he was Jewish if he did
survive. Maybe he was a cousin of your ancestor with the same name? Though
there were rare cases when cantonists did survive and keep their Jewish
identity.
