I would like to start a new thread.

Would like to know if any of you out there have heard of a
tradition by which of a baby who died at or a short time
after birth are given a
name.

My husband has a niece whose baby died *before* birth - estimated to have
died a few weeks before she went into labor. The baby was named and
buried.

SCHAPIRO from Ekaterinoslav (and maybe Chernigov) #ukraine

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

I am researching the family of Meyer SCHAPIRO, born c1850 in Russia, who
reportedly owned or managed a tobacco plantation and was murdered in about
1887 as the result of a land or property dispute.

His son Samuel's 1904 U.S. arrival record and his daughter Miro's 1906
record both list Ekaterinoslav as their last residence. However an earlier
(1898) passenger manifest for Stiche SCHAPIRO, his older daughter, shows her
last residence as something resembling "Denoshlin," which the next page of
the manifest seems to indicate was in "Tschernigow" province.

I'd appreciate some input >from Ukraine mavens on these questions:

1) I could not find a town called Denoshlin in detailed old maps of
Chernigov guberrnia, in the JewishGen ShtetlSeeker, or in _Where Once We
Walked_. One town that comes close is Domashlin (Domaslyn). Any other
suggestions?

2) Domashlin is 45 miles northeast of the city of Chernigov. Based on the
small number of hits for it on the Web and in paper sources, I assume that
it was and is a small village. Any ideas on how I'd find out where its
Jewish vital records were filed? In particular, I'm wondering if its births
and deaths might have been recorded in one of the towns for which the Mormon
Family History Library has Jewish records -- Berezna, Chernigov, Dmitrovka,
Gorodnya, Konotop, Nezhin, Repki.

3) Has any one encountered examples of Jews involved in tobacco growing in
Ukraine? If so, where?

4) Meyer reportedly was murdered in a land dispute. Any ideas for following
up on this story (police records? newspapers?)?

Thanks for your help.

Contacting Odessa State Archives? #ukraine

Professor Michael Notis
 

Hello! I am new to the SIG and hope someone can help me. I have been
trying to contact the State Archives in Odessa with no luck. I have
tried two different e-mail addresses with no response ans tried two
different FAX numbers which dont seem to be operating. What IS the best
way to make contact?

Also, can someone recommend a professional service that would do
individual document searches? I have seen some advertised (out of
Odessa) but have no ability to judge their reliability.

Sincerely,

Michael Notis

MODERATOR'S NOTE: RESPOND PRIVATELY REGARDING ANY PROFESSIONAL SERVICE
OR RESEARCHER. THANK YOU.

Dear Genners,

So class-conscious were shtetl-dwellers that the shoemaker who made the
uppers of the shoes had a higher status than the one who made the soles!
This among many other fascinating details can be found in the great
50-yr-old monograph on shtetl life, entitled: "Life is with People, " by
Mark Zborowski and Elizabeth Herzog. It is now in its 13th edition, and
eminently worth reading.

follow up on which Haradok I'm from #belarus

Dear Belarussiggers
In a previous post I asked for help in figuring out which Haradok my
great-grandparents Abraham BERGER and Sore (born RUDNITSKI) lived in the late
19th century. I would like to thank everybody for their generous help and
encouragement.
I am currently favoring Maladetshno Haradok. The reason is that in a
ship's register and in a census form my BERGER ancestors are said to have come >from
'Vilna'. Since they actually came >from Haradok, I assume that this means that
they came >from the Gubernia of Vilna which includes Maladechno Haradok.
