Dear Vitaly,

I was reviewing saved emails and found your post about MInsk religious
personnel.
I didn't see EPSTEIN included on list. I am searching EPSTEIN so I looked for
it. Being that it is such a ususal name thereon, I wonder if it might have
been overlooked when you compiled the list?

Regards to all and best wishes for the Holidays!

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Vitaly's list represents the surnames of rabbis and
and moels whose names appeared on records found in the FHL films for the
years of 1836-38. Not every family had a rabbi or moel. You may want to
check the JewishGen archives and look for some of Vitaly's old postings of
names lists of surnames found on vital records. I recall seeing the name
Epstein or a variant spelling of the name.

My grandparents were married at this shul in June 1925. Can anyone tell me
anything more about it? Does it still exist as a synagogue? Does the building
still exist but is it being used for another purpose? When was it built? Any
other bits and pieces of info. to bring it to life for me? What was/is its
address? TIA.

Whittingham College #general

David Romney <romney@...>
 

I attended this college (in Surrenden Road, Hove, if I remember correctly)
as a boarder when I was a child >from 1945 to 1947, so it was certainly still
open then. The Headmaster at the time was called Mr. Halevy and the
Assistant Headmaster was Mr. Beale. We wore pale blue caps with a badge.
Perhaps I was too small to appreciate the school at the time but my memories
of it are uniformly negative. There were a number of children who were
always trying to run away. One of them, who was even smaller than me, was a
great escape artist and often made it as far as London before he was
eventually caught and brought back. I was withdrawn >from the school after
my brother, who was also there, caught jaundice and we were both driven back
home to Bournemouth in a taxi.

I don't think the school was closed down (by the Home Office?) till the
fifties. I would be pleased to hear >from other Old Whittinghamians to share
their experiences with them.

My GGF died in London in 1937. Which cemetery might he have been buried in?
Also, a great aunt (one of my GGF's daughters) died in 1920, also in London.
Again, which cemetery might she have been buried in? (My GGF had emigrated
from Lithuania in the 1880s/90s.)

Re: New Subscriber Intro #belarus

LOGAN M LOCKABEY <LOGANISJUDD@...>
 

Dear Mr. Brill:

A great majority of my family came >from Vitebsk, with some >from the nearby
Polotsk.

I am answering your message because many people in my family were in the
lumber business and in one case a relative built wooden railway cars.

The surname I am researching is Zatkin, which was also spelled Zadkin,
Satkin, Sadkin, and Tzadkin. Many of the Zatkin family members who were in
the lumber business lived in Vitebsk and came to the USA in 1903 and settled
in Passaic, NJ. In one case there was a SCHLOMIE ZATKIN who built wooden
railway cars in and near Vitebsk. OSSIP ZADKIN was also born in Vitebsk and
he became a famous artist. Much of his work was sculpture out of wood.

If this is of any use to you in your searching please let me know.

Belarus border. I'm interested in *any* material pertaining to Usv'aty.
Many of my family members were carpenters, or involved in lumber trading.

Re: LA Cemeteries #general

Seth Blau asked about cemeteries in Los Angeles.....
I have a relative who died in Los Angeles in the early 1920s. Does anyone
know if there were many Jewish cemeteries in LA at that time?
Seth, if you know the date of death, you can get the death certificate. That will give you the name of the cemetery. If you do not know the exact date, you can check the California Death Index, which is available at local libraries in California. If you do not live in California, I will be glad to look up the name in the Death Index for you.

Brody records at YIVO - look up please #general

YIVO has informed me that there are records, including emigrant lists,
of the Alliance Israelite materials pertaining to Brody for the 1870s -
1880s. Record Group 406. Is there anyone in the New York area (who may
also be interested in this information) who could take a look at that
list for me before September 15? YIVO is packing to move then and will
be closed until late spring 1999?

Names of interest are Solomon, Joseph, Moshe DILLER or DELLAR or some
variation of that; SAVRANSKY, RUVENSKY. GERTZMAN.

Re: Gorodeya #belarus

C & D Oppenheim <oppenhei@...>
 

Dear Issie,
I, too, have FEIN family >from the same area. I know that some of my
Fein relations were born in Kaputla, now called Kopyl', which is less than
30 miles (45 km) >from Gorodeya, in a SouthEast direction.
My great-great-grandmother was Celia Fein. She married Hyman or
Samuel COHEN - (sometimes he is called Hyman Samuel and other times Samuel
Hyman). They had 4 children that I know of: Bernhard (my great-grandfather),
Lena, Mollie and Jacob (not necessarily in that order). Celia's brother was
Moses, who was, according to census records, said to be born in Minsk.
Moses married Gertrude (last name unkown) and had 4 children that I know of:
Solomon, Abraham, Meyer and Mollie (again, Mollie is out of birth order).
Only Mollie was married in Europe - to Joseph MEISEL. Solomon and Abraham
both said on census records that they were born in Kopyl', while I believe
that my own direct ancestors were probably born in Minsk. They say "Minsk"
on some documents, but I do not know for sure if that is the city or
district of Minsk. I have extensive information about these branches of the
family. All of the children of Celia Fein Cohen and Moses Cohen seem to have
emigrated to Milwaukee, WI. , and some moved >from there to other locations.
Solomon and possibly others, stopped in Chicago en route to Milwaukee. Moses
Fein was in Milwaukee for at least a short time (in 1895) to celebrate his
65th birthday - he was presented with a watch that is named and dated and
placed, and still in the family.
I do not have European records for anyone in this family - all my
information comes >from US documents and some private records. I am under the
impression, however, that the name Fein, at least in pre-turn-of-
the-century US, was not common.

I am eager to hear if this connects with any information you have
about your Fein ancestors. I did not quite understand about the possiblity
of a name change >from Popak.
Best regards,

Claire Oppenheim,
British Columbia, Canada.
