Searching: RASHKIN, SLEVITCH and KUNA #general

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

The research shows the names of Aron Abramovitch RASHKIN, age 56 in 1834
and Hirshe Nokhimovitch SLEVITCH, aged 25 in 1834. Do these names ring a
bell to anyone? Thanks.

Did Russia Shapiros come from Lithuania? #general

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

After perusing the Shtetl finder list, I found so many Shapiro families
originating >from towns in Lithuania, that I am even more convinced that my
ancestors on the Shapiro side who lived on the Russia/Belarus border in
Surazh and who were Lubavitchers, must have originated up north in
Lithuania, with a branch moving down to Russia/Belarus for business
reasons. It was probably my great-great-grandfather or his father before
him. I wonder how many other Shapiros, even >from Lithuania, were also
Lubavitcher chassidim....

Given names Beno and Pit #latvia

Claire Petersky <petersky@...>
 

I have two great great uncles. One was named Beno (although it also
appears as Benjamin); the other was named Pit (although it also appears as
Peter).

These seem like odd names to me -- are they standard? Transliterations or
variations on other names?

I, too, would be very interested in helping. It would be a great help if
Avi could post more information to the list. I think it would be worthwhile
posting it to the LitvakSIG list and the JewishGen list as well.

Hi All -
I have responded privately to Avi Lishower regarding my interest in saving

I hope those of us whose family came >from Liepaja can create a plan for
implementing this project. I would be glad to help, but I don't have a clue
where or how to begin!

I think the idea for those who can to play a role in preserving cemeteries is
valuable and worthwhile.
To start with we may consider using existing networks to establish if contacts
can be made with
members of the Libau Jewish community. Obviously there could be some help and
advice, on a professional basis I guess, >from Aleksanders Feigmanis.

Possibly this could be part of the initiatives of the Courland/Libau group set
up during our SIG
meeting in July.

Re: Second and third cousins #general

Curiousyl <curiousyl@...>
 

There are most likely many "cousins" in Jewishgenland who would like to read
the following explanation - which I found when I initiated my own research:

My mother's first cousin is my first cousin once removed.
My grandmother's first cousin is my first cousin twice removed.
The child of my mother's first cousin is my second cousin.
The child of my grandmother's first cousin is my mother's second cousin, and my
second cousin once removed.
The child of my second cousin is my second cousin once removed.
My third cousin is the grandchild of my grandmother's first cousin.

To confuse the issue a bit more, the question was asked: What cousin is it
whose great-great-great grandfather was the brother of my great-grandfather?

The answer: His great-great grandfather and my grandfather were first cousins.
His great-grandfather and my father were second cousins. His grandfather and I
are third cousins. His father and I are third cousins once removed, and he and
I are third cousins twice removed!@
My father and he are second cousins three times removed!

Just a little trivia to brighten up your day!

A woman name unknown, probably born in Sheffield, England

I want to obtain her address to send her a letter >from 1953 send by her
