Finding Military Records at RGVIA Archive in Moscow #general

Howard Orenstein
 

Dear Genners,
I'm trying to find military records for my GGF, and two Russian
military experts in the US agreed that there is a good chance that
his record might be in the Imperial Russian Army RGVIA Archive in
Moscow. Born in London in 1874, GGF left the UK and went to
Russian Poland with his family in the mid-1880s, specifically to
the town of Wyszków, on the Bug River. In 1891, he married; perhaps
around that time, he was conscripted into the Russian army. Family
legend has it that he was a flutist. GGF served in the 95th
Krasnoyarsk Infantry Regiment. This was the third regiment (out of
four) in the 24th Infantry Division. The uniform consisted of a
yellow "24" on light blue shoulder straps. As a third regiment in
a division, the 95th had white color patches and a white cap band.
These facts were determined by examining a photo of him in military
uniform.

One of the military experts said that, according to an 1897 regimental
history, the 95th Krasnoyarsk Regiment was stationed/headquartered in
the 1890s in Estonia in Yur'ev, aka Tartu, Dorpat, Derpt. He said that
the 95th was stationed there in 1914, as well. Additionally, some of
the 95th's sub-divisions were located in cities and towns not far >from
Wyszków, including Warsaw, Plonsk, Czestochowa, Bialystok, and
Ciechanow.

The same expert mentioned a Russian-language genealogical site
<http://forum.vgd.ru/174/15756/> with much discussion of RGVIA,
including links to make queries. He felt that I might have enough
information (name, origin, regiment, etc.) for someone to find
something. RGVIA, he added, apparently is on leave without pay
through January. Unfortunately, I know very little about the Russian
language to use that website effectively.

I would be grateful if anyone reading this can help me contact
someone, perhaps through the Russian genealogical website mentioned
earlier, who can access the files at the RGVIA archives and, with
some luck, find my great grandfather's record of service.

Please contact me privately at horenstein@...
Thank you.

To Israeli Genners: Is your surname STONE ? #general

Ann Linder
 

Prior to commencing my family research I thought that only *one* of a
very large family had left Poland for Engand. My research has
uncovered that several of my ancestors >from Poland also left for
Palestine before WWII. The name in Poland was KAMIENIARZ (or a
phonetical equivalent like KOMINISH, KAMINISH, KAMINASH).
The Polish definition of the name is stonecutter or stone mason. I
have found that a couple of cousins in Israel changed the name to a
couple of different Hebrew equivalents of STONE.
I know its a long shot-----The purpose of this post therefore is to
post a general query to Genners in Israel who might have the surname
of STONE. Pls contact me if you think there might be a connection.

Re: TAYLOR from Leeds UK #general

Roberta Sheps
 

Dear Monica,

Just a thought: shouldn't you also be asking people whose trees include the
name Schneider, which is the Yiddish original of Taylor? It's possible
that there were branches of the family that didn't change the name, or
delayed in changing it.

Hi all,

MyHeritage.com's Family Tree Builder is perfectly capable of handle
single parents as well as multiple spouses (living or dead) with
children as Ittai asked.

I hope the complete information I sent to Ittai's will help him work
better with Family Tree Builder and if someone else would like to have
also the detailed explanation, please write to me privately and I will
be more than happy to send it.

Best regards to all

married couple, each with children froma previous marriage that
have their own families.

Thanks re: ViewMate 14412 - town name #general

Robert Fraser <rwfgjf@...>
 

Dear Genners -

Many thanks to those who responded. Most of you recognised the
script as Cyrrilic and identified the place name as
"Friedrichstadt". This makes sense, as the subject's wife's
sister also married into a family >from this town, now known as
Jaunjelgava, in Courland, Latvia. My grandmother told me that at
one time, that area was under Russian rule, and at other times,
under German rule.

Thank you for your help.

UK census. It concerns the birthplace of a relative. He was born
in 1873. The census form gives his nationality as 'Russian'.
