Always enjoy reading the digests I receive.

Please advise where I would find a database of information/residents of
Lumza,
Poland. Not sure the name of the town is spelled correctly, but it
should be
fairly close to the correct spelling. Looking for information about
residents
in late 1800's through beginning of this century.
Glenda:

The correct spelling is Lomza, and the answer to your question is in the
tag line of every digest:

The JRI - Poland database is a tool for the research of Jewish vital
records of Poland.
See the JRI web site at http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl.
There are 28,000 Lomza records there.

In response to David's note - does anyone have a list of LDS Family
History Centers that can be posted to this SIG. I think it would help
if some of us knew where to go.

I will answer privately more specifically, but for participating in discussion
I may inform that there was such family in Minsk along with much more
common BASIN.
Dr.Beider's book on Jewish surnames listed it for Minsk as well.

Re: Availability of LDS Microfilms for Israel #belarus

One person responded to my question a few days ago with the suggestion that
ther BYU campus in Israel might have a Family History Center. I checked
with the local LDS Family History Center and was told that, although there
is a BYU campus in Jerusalem, they do not have a Family History Center
there. It still might be worthwhile for someone in Israel to check with
the BYU campus to see if there might be a way of getting access to the
microfilms.

LIFSHITS - Mogilev #belarus

dardasht@...
 

For Steven Leof and everyone else who might searching LIFSHITS name in
Mogilev. Dear Moderator: please excuse length of this list. Until our
searchable database is up and running, I do what I can. While I can post
privately, there may be many more out there who are interested in the
names. I have not written LIFSHITS for each name, if it is generally the
same name, only the first name and patrynomic if listed. I have written
the last name if it differs somewhat >from LIFSHITS.

Also, before I get started, another researcher, Howard Leivin, whose
email address was/is Howh20@aol.com, also asked for this list quite a
while ago. Steven may want to contact him as well. I generally write the
name of the person searching the name in my copy of the index.

1872: Shaya-Leib, Leib, Vulf, Yuda, Isroil, Shmuil, Mordukh, Khaim
1873: Essel-Aron, Khaim, Meer/Meir, LIBUSHITS Gamshei
1874: Khatskel, Zavel-Leizer, Shmuil, Itska, Shevel-Leiba, Isroil,
Yankel, Isroil-Vulf
1875: Khaim-Dovid,
1876: Meilakh, Essel, Beniomin-Girsh,
1877: Yankel-Zalman, Isroil-Yankel-Iosif-Khaim (1 person, 4 names),
Leiba-Itska, Mikhel
1878: Shaya, Abram-Yankel, Essel-Aron, Meir
1879: Shmuil, Leiba, Gershon, Khaim-Dovid, Ekhel-Leizer, Pinkhus
Berka, Shmuil, Zavel-Leizer
1880: Mikhel-Leizer, Essel-Aron, Mordukh,
1881: Sholom-Itska, Isroil, Pinkhos, Yankel
1882: Gershon, Shaya-Leib,
1883: Khaim-Berka, Meir, Isroil-Shevel, Leiba, Leiba
1884: Mordukh, Pinkhos, Litman (twins), Kahim-Dovid, Shaya-Leib,
Essel-Aron
1885: Movsha-Yankel, Yankel, Mendel
1886: Nosson, Khaim-Dovid, Gershon
1887: Isroil, Mendel
1888: Khaim, Mikhel-Leizer
1889: Essel-Aron, Essel, Vulf, Shmuil, Nosson-Mendel, Gershon,
Pinkhos-Yankel, Aron
1890: Movsha, Khaim-Dovid, Lipman, Meir, Abram, Mikhel-Leizer
1891: Movsha Isroilev (son of Israel), Mihel, Shmuil Movshov (son of
Movsha), Khaim-Dovid, LIFSHIOTS Aron
1892: Tinel, Gerson, Essel, Yankel, Itska, Mendel, Meir, Mikhel
Movsha, Movsha, Shmuil,

Whew! That's it, Steven. Enough to start on??? Re: 1891 above. During
some years, the persons (many different handwritings) who compiled the
index were careful to put the patrynomic in the index. Most entries have
no patrynomics. Perhaps the person compiling certain years and certain
letters of the alphabet were >from those families where the patrynomics
were included. Incidents of patrynomic included are few and far between,
limited to certain letters and certain years.
Again I always reiterate again and again: These are fathers of
the baby boys born in those years. Incidence of so many on this partial
list (1864-1894) when the records start at 1837 (for this set of
seven-rolls), mean the records are a goldmine for anyone looking for
LIFSHITS in Mogilev. Good luck!

Searching WENDER in South Africa #general

Allen Rabinowitz <allenrab@...>
 

Shalom y'all.
I received the passenger list of the Pembroke Castle for August 12,
1899. It went >from London to South Africa.

The following people were traveling together, all listed as miners:
J. ARONOWITCH, age 26 - the apparent ticketholder.
D. WICKER, age 18
C. WENDER, age 19
J. JAFFE, age 20
J. KUSCHLEDKO or RUSCHLEDKO, age 20
M. SCHOKOR, age 22
The group was headed to Capetown.

I'm hoping that C. WENDER is my great uncle, Chaim Yitzchak Wender, who
left Lithuania (Yanova) for South Africa before the rest of his family
left for the US in 1905.

Because I have not been able to get any info on C. WENDER, I'm hoping
someone in South Africa might recognize one of the other names of people
he was traveling with. Please e-mail me privately if you can shed any
light, or make suggestions.

Thank you!

Maps of Eastern Europe #general

David Gordon <dgordon@...>
 

Ron Feldman asked, "Is there any place I can find a more general
overview of Eastern
Europe with countries, regions and provinces for different periods of
time...."
I have recommended this book before and it is probably worth
repeating the recommendation: Paul Robert Magocsi, "Historical Atlas of
East Central Europe." It is volume I in a series called "A History of
East Central Europe," although the remaining volumes are all detailed
academic histories of the region. This particular volume is available
(or was very recently) in paperback. It is about 8-1/2 x 12 inch book
over 200 pages long. It covers the western portion of Russia all the
way west to Italy and Germany. Although it covers the period >from c.
400 to 1992, about one-half of the book cover the period >from the 16th
through the early 20th centuries. It not only includes political
boundaries and borders but economic, educational, and religious
information as well. The maps are, in a word, superb. My only
complaint would be that because of their size, great detail is simply
not possible. But if you can get access to this volume, I think you
will find it not only helpful, but downright fascinating browsing.
As the disclaimer goes, I do not know the author and I have no
pecuniary interest in the press, the book, the royalties, nor any other
conflict of interest, real or apparent. Look for the book--you'll enjoy
it and learn >from it. What more could you ask?

Lithuanian War Crimes Trial #lithuania

Dr Saul Issroff <saul@...>
 

A Reuters report yesterday :

Lithuania's first post Soviet war crimes trial has started. Alexandras
Lileikis , 91 years old, was pronounced fit by a medical panel to
participate.

Lileikis, a former Boston resident, was stripped of his US citizenship
in 1996 and is accused of handing 75 Jews to Nazi murder squads during
the German occupation of Lithuania. He denies the charges.
