Hello!

I just received a birth record of my great grandfather's brother >from Mormon
copies of Melitopol archives.
This records says that his father Aron Leib Aronov BERENSHTAM was a member
of Agricultural colony Novo Borislav.
This information suprised me because:
1) As I know the family lived in Akimovka, near Melitopol
2) Novo Borislav colony is placed relatively far >from Akimovka, even in
another uyezd (do somebody knows which uyezd? Kherson?)

I think (without any prove) that the family moved to Ukraine >from Courland,
so my questions are:

1) Do somebody knows about some archival resources with a list of jews who
moved >from Courland to Ukraine agricultural colonies?
2) Do somebody knows about some lists of jews who arrived to Novo Borislav
colony?
3) Where should I search for census data and metrical books of Novo Borislav
colony - Kherson or something else?
I searched rtrfoundation.org, but they have not entries on Novo Borislav.
4) Is there chance that they all the time lived in Akimovka but somehow were
recorded as Novo Borislav citizens?

Thank you!

Hi Pavel,

In one of the sources (Yevrei Ukraine, Kiev 1995) which lists data from
1923-24, in Odessa Guberniya within Cherson Okrug there is Berislav Rayon
listed.

Berislav Rayon consisted of colony Volodarske (260 households, population
1,225) as the part of Volodarske Selsoviet, and colony Novo-Berislav (74
households, 401 population) as part of Dremaylov Selsoviet.

Providing a Family Name where none existed #general

harold lewin <har_mir@...>
 

In the process of recording and computerizing very early English
synagogue records which are to be sorted according to family name, it is
clear that the lack of a family name presents a very real difficulty. How can we
list family names if only the patronymic is given and especially where the family
name is to be the primary field?

One solution seems to be to adopt the system common in the Prussian Empire
and eastern Europe and to bestow a putative family name i.e. the given name
of the father, as found in the patronymic.

Most of us are familiar with the custom of taking the given name of the
father as the family name, in the period before the compulsory introduction
of family names and where we do not have an established family name
extending over several generations. This Prussian custom is also seen in
early 19th century English synagogue records. For example, Moshe, whose
father was Yaakov ben Yehezkel, would have the patronymic Moshe ben Yaakov (for
synagogue) which was usually simplified in civilian life to Moshe Yaakov, so that
Yaakov became the new "family name" for one generation.. May I invite comments on
a proposal to exploit this custom in order to give family names in places
where they do not exist? Do readers consider it a legitimate procedure?

LIPSHITZ/LIPSCHITZ #general

Allison & Bennett Rosenthal
 

Looking for info on my ggm family.


Heinrich or hyman LIPSCHITZ and Jetty AMSTER married. My ggm, Josephene
(Pepie or Persha) married Mayer APPLETREE in 1905 in NY. She lists that she
is >from Hungary on marriage certificate. Family lore is that they were from
Austria - Hungary border - a town which sounds like "Igloo."

Josephen's siblings were:

Adoph LIPSCHITZ/LIPSEY (M. Mini KRAUSS in 1899.) Had a daughter Helen who
was a dentis and maybe married a man named LAUFER.

Max

Bertha

William (died young)

Augusta (Gussie) (M. Nathan MELTZ - no children)

Mary (M. Jacob AMSTER 1/1900)

Sister who married non-Jew and stayed in Hungary

Zali - half sister, same dad?

I don't know when they came to America. The Ellis Island web site starts at
1892 and I can't find anyone.

Thanks.

Daryn Beth <darynbeth@...>
 

Hello,

My late grandfather was a scribe in Zvenigorodka, Ukraine, at the
end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth
century. To become a scribe. did her have to attend a Yeshiva? His
name was Shmule Yossel BELAGOLOV. Where can I find a record of his
birth, marriage and death? I would also like to have information
about the Yeshiva that exsisted in Mezeritch, Ukraine.

Your help would be much appreciated.

Rabbinic Genealogy SIG #Rabbinic Rabbi Chananya ZWANG of Kutno #rabbinic

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

I have learned that a relative of mine, Chananya ZWANG, was a rabbi
in Kutno, Poland in 1918 or 1928. He was probably born 1840-1860,
but this is only a guess based on other ages in the family.
Apparently, there were many rabbis and politicians in the family,
but whether they all had the unusual ZWANG surname I do not yet
know. I would be grateful for any information about ZWANG rabbis.

Thanks very much and best regards,
