looking for Anisel #ukraine

mgmiller@...
 

Hello all,

I enjoy the Ukrainian interest group and in the past have had some
interesting correspondence in regard to my husband's father's family,
the Melechs (sp?) of the shtetl Pulin, west of Zhytomir. Now I'm
looking for his mother's family. His maternal grandfather, Meyer
Berezin's naturalization papers say he was born in the village of
Anisel in Ekaterinaslav in 1873 or 4. I am unable to find this
shtetl. Has anyone heard of it or does anyone have family >from
there? He came to Chicago in 1907. Meyer's parents were named
George (westernized?) and Anya Berezin. He was married to Bertha
Vinokuroff of Berdjansk. Her parents were named Eheskel and Mildred
Levi Vinokuroff. If anyone has any info on any of these please
email me. Thanks.

Yiddish translation needed #ukraine

jfquaile166@...
 

Good evening,

I have posted the back of a photo most likely taken in Ukraine before
1920. It is in Yiddish and I would greatly appreciate your help in
its translation.
The possible surnames are Kasanofsky, Kholmetzsky or Smogarinsky.

The number is VM13802 at http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate.

Thank you in advance for any help. I hope it will not be too difficult to read.

correction in Kovel page link #ukraine

bruce.drake@...
 

On Saturday, I posted a message about the addition of a page to the Kovel
site containing a partial English translation of the Table of Contents of
the Pinkas Kovel.

The direct link I provided had to be changed because the web name of the
page was causing a Linkscan-reported error.

The correct address is now:
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/kovel/pinkascontents.htm

Dear all,

The historian Jennie Lebel, who specialized in the history of the
ex-Yugoslavia Jews and their fate during the Holocaust, has passed away at
Tel Hashomer Hospital, Israel on October 20.
She published seven books in Hebrew, two of them were recently translated to
English and published under the titles: "Until the 'Final Solution' The Jews
in Belgrade 1521-1942" and
" Tide and Wreck: History of the Jews of Vardar Macedonia".
She was also a very appreciated lecturer.

We will all miss her,

Re: Using Two Surnames in Lithuania #general

Judith27
 

Dear JewishGendom,
Allan Blacher cited relatives of his who used two surnames in Lithuania, and asked
"Has anyone else encountered such a phenomenon in Lithuania?" In my case, with my
Surinamer-Zhurnamer ancestors in Lithuania and Latvia, there are also several
instances of my relatives using a double surname (Surnamer-Gittelson) or sometimes
one surname (Surinamer, Zhurnamer) and then another surname (Gittelson, van
Coerland),As far as I can tell, this was in part related to the members of the
mishpacha in Lithuania and Latvia receiving money >from a usufructal bequest
established in Surinam under the 1754 will of Gerrit Jacobs. Research my 7th
cousin, Jetty Breebaart de Miranda, and I have done shows that the "original"
family surname was actually van Coerland, but that at one point one of the
granddaughters married a Gittelson. On a 1853 Census >from the Lithuanian Archive
the family name shows up as "Gittelson ili Zhurnamer" which would suggest that they
were known by both surnames, Gittelson or Zhurnamer. And by the early 1900s, part
of the family who had moved to Liepaja, Latvia, was known as Surnamer-Gittelson.
My late mother, Gladys Surnamer Langer, told me a long time ago that men who
married into the family would take on the wife's name of Sur(i)namer to help
insure receiving the annual inheritance stipend >from Surinam.
Shalom,
Judi Langer-Surnamer Caplan

From: Allan Blacher <allanblacher@...>
I have recently uncovered records on jewishgen showing that the same people in one
(quite large) family used both of two different surnames (FRIEDMAN and BLEKHER).
This was not to disguise an identity as it continued over two or three generations
and the use of both surnames appears in the formal records so appears not to have
been hidden. What I have are a) listings of family members where the record says
the person is registered elsewhere under the second surname b) listings of family
members with both surnames like a double-barrelled surname and c) whole family
records listed at one time under one surname and then,in a different List, under
the other. I had previously encountered cases >from Poland/Ukraine where the mothers
surname (rather than the fathers) was used but that could not have applied in this
case and, so far as I know, those tended not to be interchanged...

"Chick" as male nickname #general

Brian Appel <brian.appel@...>
 

Out of curiosity, I'm wondering if anybody has ever heard of the nickname "Chick"
for a Jewish male? I ask, because my great grandfather, Joshua LEVIN, was known to
friends and family as "Chick" and I'm wondering if anybody can think of why?
