Vinnitsa Oblast - how to get started? #ukraine

A. E. Jordan
 

I have not done any research in the Ukraine records and I am wondering of
anyone here has some advice on how to get started?

My great grandfather (Joseph REICHER) immigrated around age 30 in 1904 to
the USA and his wife (Ester) and children followed in 1906. >from those
records along with the naturalization papers I see them mentioning alternately
that they came >from the town of either Bar or Litin. My grandfather was
reported born in 1898 and I have approximate dates for the other children who
are all younger.

I would like to get started looking for them in "the old country." I have
looked on the FamilyFinder and I looked at Miriam Weiner's site but I could
use some pointers, clues, etc. >from people who have gone before on how
best to get started looking for the family in the Ukraine.

It would be nice to find them around 1900 just to establish where they were
living and then I would like to go backwards to find more information on
my great grandparents, maybe their parents, did they have siblings, etc.?

Thanks for any advice or experience you can share.

Re: Richard Tucker and genealogy #general

Roberta Sheps
 

Are people aware that he was Jan Peerce's brother-in-law? I'm not sure, but
I think that Tucker's wife was Peerce's wife's sister. There's some
information in Peerce's autobiography " Bluebird of Happiness". I don't
remember what his father's original occupation was, but his mother took in
lodgers and then expanded to general catering. They ended up running a
large kosher establishment which was used for the usual run of simchas.

from Sekurian (then Bessarabia, later Romania, and now Ukraine)...

With all due respect to J. Goldwater, she is sending out incorrect

Re: "Old Jewish Cemetery" in Frankfurt a.M - SITE CITE - IAJGS Cemetery database #germany

Arline and Sidney Sachs
 

I haven't checked on-line resources, but the records of the [Frankfurt a.M.] rat-beil strasse
cemetery (old Jewish cemetery) are complete. Since I think the office
there is now closed I think the records are in the Chrisitian and/or new
Jewish cemetery right next door (about 1/2 block to the left when facing
the cemetery). These records will explain where to find the burial. For
the most part these are still quite legible. I believe the cemetery was
used until 1924. At one time I had posted a map of the cemetery on the [website of the
IAJGS] cemetery project, but I don't know if it is still there.

I would like to donate my complete set of Slonim Yizkor books (4
volumes) to a library or institute that can make good use of them.
The main requirement is that they have a collection of Yizkor books,
but not those of Slonim. Preferably, it should be somewhere in the US.

Souvenir / family book for bar mitzvas #hungary

Ruben Weiser
 

I want to share with all of you the new family book I made for my second son
bar mitzvah and
gave it as a souvenir to the attendants. I think it can give new ideas to
others
that have the same idea on mind.

For many years I wanted to write a book about my family genealogy research
but who
in the family will be interested in dates and names like we (genealogist)
are?.
Some time ago I had the idea to write for my sons bar mitzvah a small book
with 13
stories with a nice teaching of 13 of his ancestors with an introduction to
each
story with information about that ancestor. And in each story i added a
picture of
the ancestor or the town where he or she lived and or the headstone picture
etc.
Most of the people liked the book and started to be somehow interested in
genealogy.

Anybody interested to see the book ,just send me an email and I will be
happy to
send it by email in pdf format. rubweiser@gmail.com
This is the index of the book:
introduction
1)Rab Abraham Aaron Teitelbaum of Kolbuszowa (le shem shamaim honor)
2)Bolisa Levy of Aleppo (sacrifice for your neighbors in need)
3)Eliahu Reich of Rzeszow (give what god has entrusted us with)
4)Biniamin Jonatan Schwartz of Piricse (if its isint me, who then)
5)Moshe Gelberman of Rohod (achnasat orchim)
6)Rab Naftali Tzvi Horowitz of Ropshitz (everything should be properly
balanced)
7)Rab Itzjak Meshulam Zalman Reinmann of Narol (And if it's not exactly what
we wanted)
8)Rabi Menachem Mendel Rubin of Lezko (what is the use of anger)
9)Nissim Juejati of Aleppo (everything is for the best)
10)Rab Shimshon Wertheimer of Wien (kidush ashem)
11)Leib Shamash of Eisenstadt (depending on gods will)
12)Rab Moshe Teitelbaum of Satoraljaujhely (waiting for the mashiach every
single day)
13)Simja Alegre kassin of Aleppo (le shem shamaim arguments)
14)Josef Weisz of Balassagyarmat (kidush ashem)
15)Haprenumerantn

Hope it helps others to write their family histories.
