Translation Volunteers needed -Vilna Yizkor book #yizkorbooks

Joelrat@...
 

Is there anyone out there interested in helping to translate a Yizkor book for
Vilna [Bleter Vegn Vilna]? I have posted this request on the Vilna Web page
months ago with no response. I also tried through the LitvakSIG - again, no
response. I've got a head start as I have already translated the lists of
names [approx. 1100] >from the book.

Names: Gievseina? #general

Kamtraub@...
 

Dear Genners,

I recently found the 1829 Polish marriage record for my ggggrandparents, Berek
(Boruch) SOLARSH and Gitla LEWIT, >from Wolbrom. My Polish deciphering skills
have a long way to go and was wondering if someone has any idea about the
following name: Gievseina? This is the first name given as the father of
Berek Solarsh.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Phil Weintraub

searching ROSENBERG #general

David Egelman <david@...>
 

(I know it's a common name, but...)
I have recently discovered that my grandfather had a cousin named Hinda Ruchel
ROSENBERG (probably nee IGELMAN), born sometime around the 1870s. She came to
America >from Poland as a widow with three sons and a daughter:

#1(son): Louis ROSENBERG married a woman named Tillie, who apparently was a
niece of his. They had a son, Benjamin, who fought in WWII; and also a
daughter, Marcia (or Marsha?).

#2(son): Henry ROSENBERG married a woman >from Germany, and they adopted her
nephew, whose family had been killed in the Holocaust. Just before WWII Henry
and his wife went to Argentina, then Cuba, and were able to enter the US after
the war ended.

The adopted son of Henry married Louis' daughter, Marcia. Apparently they live
on Long Island. The name should be ROSENBERG, and he may be an accountant.

#3(daughter): the daughter married a GREENBERG/GREENSTEIN(?).

#4(son). No information.

Any information or leads would be of great help.

JGS of Southern Nevada-West #general

Sam & Charlotte <samchar@...>
 

On Monday night, October 19th, at the Sahara West Library, 9600 West
Sahara in Las Vegas, the Jewish Genealogy Society of Southern
Nevada-West and their co-sponsor, the Clark County/Las Vegas Library
District were extremely proud of the program that was presented by Gary
Mokotoff on how to find your family roots. The people who attended were
treated to a fascinating and informative talk along with a slide
presentation.

Mary Barkan, a member of the JGSSN-West introduced the speaker, and Gary
detailed his search for his family's history and brought with him many
documents that he then displayed telling how he discovered the paper
trail that led him to information on his ancestors. His successes and
enthusiasm encouraged all who attended to continue with their searches.
It was a very positive experience and Gary made it entertaining as well.

During a question and answer period, he provided many of the attendees
with pertinent information on the correct process to use in researching
their history. It was a wonderful program and was very well received as
we could tell by all the complimentary remarks that evening as well as
all the phone calls we received. It was only due to the fact that the
library was closing that the program finally had to be brought to an
end.

Carole Montello, President of JGSSN-West made a presentation to Gary in
appreciation for his time and efforts in presenting this program to us.

Re: DISKIN #general

If you can read Yiddish, there is a biography of Rabbi Yehoshua Leib
Diskin OBM written in the 1970's. The author is Yosef Scheinberger who
lives in Jerusalem, or at least he did 20 years ago. The title of the
book is "Der= yerdiger Zeil" (Pillar of Fire), independently published.

Re: Availability of LDS Microfilms for Israel #belarus

R. Abramson <RebeccaAbramson@...>
 

In answer to the question about LDS centers in Israel-

Because of the volitile religious situation there, Israeli leaders are very
reluctant to allow other religious groups into their country. (Although my
ancestors are Jewish, my family is LDS). There is one study abroad center
there, but I don't believe they have a Family History Center there)

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.

Keep up the good work.

Re: BASSEIN/BASSIN #belarus

Mpcamitta@...
 

Dear Schelley,
Thanks for writing so soon, and for the great list! I am admittedly new to
geneological research. My question is this: My g-grandfather (Bezalel
Bassein) had five children, two of whom were boys, named Jacob and Leybe.
They were all born in Minsk. I have postcards addressed to them, with Bassein
spelled in Russian, always with the e. In the US, all of their descendents
who kept the name have retained the e. While there are many Bassins and
Basins to be found, I keep wondering if there is something to this spelling.
Do you have any ideas?

MODERATOR'S NOTE: While this is a private response which normally should
not be posted the group, I released it to the group because I thought that
some of the newer members might learn something about name variations.
