Using the zabasearch.com website through the Vital Records section of
Steve Morse's website, http://www.stevemorse.org/, I get two possible
telephone numbers. The search also had to use Judy's formal name,
Judith.

I am trying to contact my cousins, Judy and Leah DORMAN in West Hartford,

ROSENBAUM Family from Checiny #general

Linda Shefler
 

In 1957 Sara NAGEL (daughter of Chanoch GOLDSZTEJN and Rivke nee ROSENBAUM)
submitted numerous Pages of Testimony for the ROSENBAUM family of Checiny.

I am sure that Sara has since passed on, but would like to know if anyone is
familiar with this particular ROSENBAUM family. They descend >from Szymon
ROSENBAUM (born 1865 in Checiny) and Szaindla Malka DOMB (born 1867 in
Wloszczowa).

Szymon ROSENBAUM was undoubtedly named after his great grandfather Szymon
ROZENBLAT who was ABD of Checiny, my 3rd great grandfather.

Any information on this family (beyond all of the Pages of Testimony which I
already have) or any connection to descendants >from this family would be
greatly appreciated.

As always, many thanks!!

Klabano surname #belarus

Lois Hanson
 

I hope all you experts can give me some advice. My maiden name is
Klabano and my paternal grandfather, Sam Klabano, said that he came
from Borisova. Klebanov or Klebanova seem to be common surnames there
but no Klabanos. Am I making too great a leap by assuming that was
our original name?

Thank you,

Hello, my name is Grace and this is
my first time on this system. I am researching an

Help needed--Russian translation for photo identification #general

Lesley Cafarelli <lcafarel@...>
 

If you can read Russian script >from the early 20th century, I hope you can
help me. I have posted two old family photos >from Slavuta, Ukraine, plus two
scans of Russian writing on the reverse of each photo. I would like to have
a translation of the writing and am especially interested in anything that
will help identify two of the people in each photo. The others in each photo
are members of my grandmother Sarah (Kotel) Kisner's family-her mother and
siblings. A fifth photo shows my grandmother soon after she immigrated to
Boston, Mass.; in one of the other photos, her mother, Sheindl Kotel, is
holding the same photo.

The photos can be viewed by clicking on the following link for the image
gallery and viewing images 17052 through 17056:

JRI Poland #Poland Agreement Signed Between JRI-Poland and Museum of the History of Polish Jews #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

We are delighted to announce that Jewish Records Indexing-Poland
and the Museum of the History of Polish Jews have signed an
agreement where each of JRI-Poland's "Your Town" pages will
have a link to the Museum's Virtual Shtetl pages for the same
towns -- and vice versa.

This will enable those reading about their town in the Museum's
Virtual Shtetl site to learn about surviving records for their
families by clicking on the link to the JRI-Poland page for the
same town.

There will be more than 1,000 linked towns and villages.

The JRI-Poland site is at http://www.jri-poland.org/index.htm
It contains an index to more than 4 million records of the Jewish
presence in Poland -- mostly birth, marriage and death records.

The Museum of the History of Polish Jews will open in 2012 on
the site of the former Warsaw Ghetto. Its Internet site is at
http://www.jewishmuseum.org.pl/index.php?lang=en

More information about the signing can be found at:

Hello. My name is Josh Grise.
I am looking for any information on the Gartsman/Gartzman family.
My grandmother who is 92 grew up believing her family had all been
murdered,but recently, after many years of research, I have reunited
her with her lost cousins.
We are looking for other Gartsmans/Gartzmans who may have survived or
fled during the war.
The home towns revolved around Kiev, and include Chabna (Polesskoye),
Ivankov,Narodichi, Ovruch, and parts of Zhitomir. There are probably
more shtetls that held Gartsmans though.
In our family, Avrum Gartsman (my great great grandfather) was the
rabbi of Chabna. He was born in 184? and was murdered in 1941.
His wife was Brocha nee Goodman, and their children included G
enendel Urman, Peysah, Shlomo, Itzhak, Sarka Mostovsky,
Khana-Masha Gershonzon, Basya Feldman, Yakov, Aaron, David, Simon,
and one other. We have located the descendants of every one of the
siblings except Peysah.
Peysah (b 1890s) married Riva Lipshitz.
Their children were Khana and Pesha. Please help us find them. Their
parents were on the list of those murdered in Chabna, but we have a
feeling that the two girls survived.
Please let me know if you know anything about the Gartsmans/Gartzmans
My email is jmgrise@...

Thanks
Josh
