CHERNICOFF Family #latinamerica

Sandy Bursten <sandybee@...>
 

Hi Everyone:
I am researching the CHERNICOFF family in Argentina. They originally
came >from Chenigov guberniya. I have located several relatives in
Buenos Aires and Cordoba, but this is a very large family. Also
interested in BLUMKIN (Berta Blumkin married my great-uncle, Jacobo
(Yankel?) Chernicoff).

Belarus SIG Website Now Online! #general

Risa E Heywood <risah@...>
 

We are pleased to announce that the Belarus SIG web site is now online. It
can be accessed at www.jewishgen.org/belarus.
The Belarus SIG was begun this summer at the Jewish Genealogy Conference in
Los Angeles. Its purpose is to aid Jewish genealogy researchers with an
interest in the gubernii of Minsk, Mogilev and Vitebsk.

The Belarus SIG has started a number of translation projects:

Translation of 1903 Russian Business Directory
Translation of the Minsk Yizkor Book name index
Translation and indexing of Mogilev Vital Records
Translation of the 1834 Borisov Revision List
Translation and indexing of Minsk Gub. Revision Lists
Translation of Senno 1861-64 Birth Records

The results of all of these projects will be available at our web site and
will eventually be part of a Belarus database. We are in need of project
leaders, translators, and, of course, financial support. To volunteer,
contact Dave Fox, SIG coordinator at fox@erols.com . To provide financial
support, go to www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/belarus . In addition,
the web site will include an online newsletter. A newsletter editor is also
needed.

The SIG hosts a discussion group to which 210 people have already
subscribed, and the number grows daily. To subscribe to the Belarus SIG
discussion group, go to http://www.jewishgen.org/listserv/sigs_add.htm?.

Our goal is for this web site to become a well-used resource for Belarus SIG
members. We encourage you to send us your suggestions and additional data
to add to the site. Please visit the web site often. We have many exciting
additions planned.

Dear Aubrey,

When I lived in Ireland the Chief Rabbi was RAbbi Emmanuel Jacobowitz.
His wife, Emilie, was French >from Paris. Rabbi Jacobowitz is now Lord
Jacobowitz of England. I cannot tell you more than this as I have not
lived in Ireland since 1961 and Rabbi J. left Ireland about 1958 so it was
LONG AGO.

NJ Burial Society records? #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I am looking for the records of a New Jersey Burial Society by the name of
Moses Montefiore of Hoboken, New Jersey.

The cemetary where my ggf is buried tell me that the Society is defunct. I
assume that is possible but what about the Society records? I know the
Society was active as early as the 1920s and as late as the 1940s -- beyond
those dates earlier or later I don't know.

Maybe there is a Temple in Hoboken, NJ >from the period that it was associated
with?

American Jewish Congress or alike?

Any thoughts would be most welcome. Thank to all of the people who have
responded to my prior notes. This is system is great and the people respond
with ideas are the best.

"Mashi Shengel = Masha Sheindel #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 

My fiancee would like to verify her
Hebrew name; unfortunately, records are extremely scarce and we cannot
locate any documentation.

She recalls her name as being Mashi SHENGEL - is this a possible
Hebrew/Yiddish name for a girl?
Sounds as though she was probably Masha Sheindel, both being common Yiddish
names for girls.

Re: Schei as a first name #general

Gldancer <gldancer@...>
 

Anyone heard the name Schei? Was does it mean? What language is it? Any
other
information on the orgins?
It's Hebrew. It means 'gift'. I believe it's more modern Hebrew than
the word matana, which also means gift.
One of our family first names is Shea, passed down through the generations.
from my understanding it originally came >from Schmuel for Samuel. We have
always spelled it Shea except for my cousin who is female and it is her middle
name spelled Shay. Hope this helps

Searching: LIPUT - RZEPSKI #general

S & R Chernoff <s.r.chernoff@...>
 

Hello,

I am trying to locate a missing branch of my grandmother's family.

Grandmother's oldest sister - first name not known - was a RZEPSKI from
the Kocubince/Kopyczynce area, district of Husiatyn in what is now
Ukraine. She may have been born in the village of Suchostaw (just north
of Kopyczynce). She married a man whose last name was LIPUT (LIPUTA?)
first name not known.

They had 3 sons all born in the late 1880s or early 1890s - Jan (John),
Anton (Tony) and Josef (Joe). John and Tony were in Canada for a few
years and returned to the "old" country around 1920 never to be heard
from again. Joe apparently died before 1920 under strange circumstances
but not as a result of WWI.

Would anyone with ANY information on this family please contact me
directly at s.r.chernoff@sk.sympatico.ca

Thank you.

Jews in the Austrian Army #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 

Dear J-Genners:

If anyone has access to records of Jews in the Austrian army, and if these
records are indexed alphabeticall , so that names are easy to find, could
you please look for my husband's grandfather, Julius/Juda WEGNER (b.
1863 in Vienna) , who served as an army bandleader in that Army during WW1
and maybe even before the war. He survived the war -- we think he died
around 1926. The name is definitely spelled WEGNER (not Wagner).

Thank you.

Are there City Housing archives? #general

Foodphile@...
 

Hi everyone...Does anyone know if the city housing projects in Brooklyn keep
archives? I'm looking for a tenant list >from 1970. The name of the project
is Marlboro Houses on Stillwell Ave. in Brooklyn. I phoned the "applications"
office yesterday and the man I spoke with was (reluctantly) kind enough to fax
a map of the complex. However, he had no clue as to where I might find a
tenant list >from 1970.
I am determined to find my grandmother's sister, Mollie who lived there in
1970. It's very possible that she is still alive. Thank you all for your
help.

By the way, I am going to the Los Angeles Central Library tomorrow and would
be happy to do a lookup for someone.
