There's a biography of cantors in Yiddish that you can consult (or
ask someone for help reading). Ask a librarian to borrow it via
Interlibrary Loan:

DATABASE: WorldCat

AUTHOR: Zaludkowski, Elias, 1890-1943.
TITLE: Kultur-treger fun der idisher liturgye
Kulturtrager von der judischen Liturgie
PLACE: Detroit, Michigan
PUBLISHER: [s.n.]
YEAR: 1930
PUB TYPE: Book
FORMAT: xv, 351 p. : ill., port. ; 24 cm.
NOTES: Book stamped "Made in Poland".
SUBJECT: Cantors, Jewish.
OTHER: Kulturtrager von der judischen
Liturgie.

I'm also interested in cantors. My great-grandfather, Avrum
SHUKHAT, was a cantor in Talnoye >from the late 1800's probably into
the 1920's or so. I don't think he was part of the court of the
Talner Rebbes (the TWERSKYs) but it's possible. He's mentioned in
this book, but I'm looking for other information about him and
about the TWERSKYs.

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Reasearching GOLDMAN, KAPLAN and ALTSHULER in Volhynia (Wolina), Ukraine/Belarus #ukraine

aggiroux <aggiroux@...>
 

Hello,

I am new to this group. Here are my more pressing questions:

I
I noticed in the 1920 U.S. Census for Abraham GOLDMAN that his
birthplace was listed as Geton Woolina Russia. I understand that
Wolina is Volhynia (part Ukraine and part Belarus etc. now). But
what is Geton -- a town or city? or a shtetl? I can't find it on any
of the regular maps. I also thought he was >from Anapola so it is
very confusing.

II
I have an individual whose maiden name was KAPLAN, but apparently
that was changed in the U.S. and the name was told to me as
ITCHTOVICH but I saw it was given as BERLIKOVITZ on a child's
birth certificate. (Sigh) She was >from Grodno or Wilno area in
Wolina (Volhynia)and was born Abt. 1883 and married about 1898.
I have not had any luck in tracking these names.

III
I am researching ALTSHULER >from the Volhynia region. I believe
my branch was >from the Mogilev area and maybe a couple closer to
Kiev. I saw that on the 1920 U.S. Census, the place was given
as Mogoloff so now I am not sure if I am on the right track. Is
this just another spelling of the same place? Did Jews live in
Mogilev proper or did they live outside in a shtetl around
1890-1900?

IV
I would like to find out more about a ship that came >from
Liverpool, England 7/9/1906 called the Umbria. The ellis island
site did not have the passenger records available.

V
I have been trying to find out how to do research in Ukraine
and Belarus but I hear that RAGAS is now defunct. What are my
other options? Any recommendations?

Thank you in advance for any responses.

In our family we have a story that my great-great-grandfather

I am sending a copy of my response to Ms.Vikki Friedman's inquiry of
12/12/01, to Ms. Friedman, but I am also sending my response to the Ukraine
group because other members may be interested in what I have to suggest.

In a message dated 12/12/01 7:11:54 PM, vif17@... writes:

If Ms. Friedman has limited herself to Jewishgen's Discussion Group
Archives or its FAQs offerings or even if she has extended her search to the
Internet, her problem in finding information may have arisen >from her
repeated misspelling of the word "pogrom" as "pogram." (This misspelling is
not hers alone; I've noticed that some other Jewishgenners also use it.)

When I began my own genealogical research, I naturally turned to history
books for information and guidance. Of course I've often used Jewishgen after
I learned of its existence through the Internet searches I also did, but many
times, for me, my Internet searches were and still are more helpful and
informative in regard to my own genealogy as well as in answering certain
history questions I've had than Jewishgen has been.


I've learned about books I thought I should read by doing "keyword"
searches at various bookstore websites I've discovered through the Internet.
Usually, when I've discovered the existence of a book on a certain subject, I
do Internet searches for book reviews before I look for the book at my public
library or more often at the marvelous library at Indiana University, and I
look for book reviews before I order and buy a book whose title appeals to me
to keep for reference and re-rading in my personal library.

So if Ms. Friedman would type in "pogrom in Russia" or "pogroms in Russia"
or "Russian pogroms" etc, and "Russian famine" or "Russian Famine" in the
"google" search engine (http://www.google.com she is likely to find many
websites which offer the sort of information she has been thus far
fruitlessly seeking. And if she is more ambitious, she might read one or two
of the books I have listed below:

For general histories with a focus on Russian Jews:

Zvi Gitelman: "A Century of Ambivalence:The Jews of Russia and the Soviet
Union"

Louis Greenberg, "The Jews in Russia:the Struggle for Emancipation" (in two
volumes)

Simon M. Dubnow, "History of the Jews in Poland and Russia"

Salo W. Baron, "A Social and Religious History of the Jews" originally
published in 3 vols. but expanded to 18 Vols (not all of which I have read)

Salo W. Baron,"The Russian Jew Under Tsars and Soviets,"


J. Frumkin, Gregor Aronson, Alexis Goldenweiser, eds. "Russian Jewry:
1860-1917"

(The above list is far >from exhaustive! But most or all of them mention
pogroms. Of course, there are also books devoted to particular pogroms.)


Consulting the Encyclopedia Judaica will also help Ms. Friedman. For
"armchair" researchers, it is available on a CD Rom (which I can't afford and
even if I could, my iMac may not be able to read it). Fortunately, most
synagogue or temple libraries in the US have a set. I often drive to the one
synagogue to use its set because parking there free and more space is
available than at the library parking lot at I.U.

Jewishgen also has a booklist which Ms. Friedman may find useful and there
are also reviews of some books by Jewishgenners.

As for "a famine" in Russia, about which Ms. Friedman asked, the one which
may have prompted her ancestors to emigrate occurred as a result of WW I's
diversion of agricultural and other manpower toward winning the war, and the
consequential disruption of agriculture and transportation of produce and
other food goods.

At the war's conclusion and the assumption of power by the Bolsheviks, the
shortage of food was exacerbated by the Bolsheviks' introduction of their
National Economic Policy(NEP). The famine that arose as a result of this
ill-conceived policy lasted for at least two years. A brief discussion of the
policy and its history and aftermath can be found in:

Paul Robert Magocsi, "A History of the Ukraine." (As is common among general
histories of various countries, this book offers very little about Jews. Some
histories mention Jews only in passing. I've one book by O.Halecki on the
history of Poland, purported to be a "classic," which only barely mentions
Jews! This is surprising since for several centuries Jews constituted a large
part of Poland's population and were important to its economy.)

Those of you particularly interested in Russian pogroms may want to read at
least:

John Klier and Shlomo Lambroza, eds. "Pogroms: Anti-Jewish Violence in Modern
Russian History," Cambridge University Press,1991

There are other books on the subject, of course. For instance, there are at
least two in English I know of concerning the Kishinev pogrom of 1903. But
the Klier/Lambroza book is the most comprehensive in English that I have yet
found and read.

I would have mentioned the Klier-Lambrozo book in my response to Vikki
Friedman recent inquiries, but to tell you the truth, it wasn't until just a
minute ago that I located my copy's whereabouts in my disorganized personal

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Bershad memoir #ukraine

People whose ancestors lived in the Kamenets-Podolsky region may be
interested in reading Nadezhda Ulanovskaya's memoir of her shtetl "Bershad."
It is published in Michael Glenny and Norman Stone, "The Other Russia,"
Viking, 1990.

The author, whose grandfather was a rabbi, was born in Bershad in 1904. Her
family was engaged in cloth-trading. She married an anarchist, older than
herself, who had been exiled in the far north. The couple lead an exciting
life, until a purge which I think took place in the 1950s. Then they were
made to suffer in terrible camps, until Stalin's death. Nadezhda lived for
some time in Odessa and 1975 went to live in Israel.

This is not exactly genealogical, but I thought Jewishgen folks might be
able to help.

I have a friend whose father is a survivor of Bergen-Belsen. In the two
memorial books about Bergen Belsen (one copyright Irgun Sheerit Hapleita
Me-Haezor Habriti and the other published by Bergen-Belsen Memorial Press
entitled "Holocaust and Rebirth: Bergen-Belsen 1945-1965") there is a
photograph of my friend's father. He is photographed standing next to a
memorial there, which was dedicated in April 1946, the first anniversary
of liberation of the camp. This photo of him is in both of the memorial
books. He is pictured next to the Belsen Memorial, in a uniform, holding a
rifle.

My friend's father says that that photograph appeared in a magazine a few
months after the dedication of the monument. She is trying to locate
which magazine it was in. I am a librarian and have looked through
Reader's Guide, to no avail. Maybe I missed something?

If anyone is familiar with this or has any assocation with Bergen-Belsen
survivors, maybe they would know something....

On 2001-12-12, Micheline Gutman <michelinegutmann@...> responded

from "Zur Geschichte der Juden in Fuerth" by Loepold Loewestein,
Meschullam Salomon KOHN was born ca. 1739 in Rawitsch (Posen).
There are several pages concerning his studies, his works and
relations with other rabbis and his pupils.
Let me provide more information about my question. I have the
following tree:

1 Leopold KAUFMANN b. Berlichingen, Germany,
d. Berlichingen, Germany
+ Lea KOHN b. Warsaw, Poland, d. Berlichingen, Germany
... 2 Jakob KAUFMANN b. 1783, Berlichingen, Germany,
d. 27 Feb 1853, Laupheim, Germany
+ Sophie SCHNAITTACHER b. 1 Feb 1786, Fürth, Germany,
d. 6 Jul 1857, Laupheim, Germany

Jakob KAUFMANN was rabbi in Laupheim >from 1835 to 1851 and the
brother of his wife Sophie, Joseph Meir >from Schnaittach, was a
noted rabbi >from Freudental.

Is there any evidence that Lea KOHN is related to this Rabbi M. S.
KOHN >from Fuerth? Any recommended sources to track this down?

Thanks,

Dear Yehuda,

Thank you very much for your lengthy and detailed response. Thanks
also to Alex P. Korn who provided additional information. Hopefully
with the permission of Aryeh Lopiansky, this Brooklyn boy will
continue on this thread a little longer.

A chronological question seems to present itself based on your
explanation. If Rabbi Yitzchak Meir ROTHENBERG, known as the Alter
of Gora (1799 - 1867) was also called the Alexander Rebbe, how and
when did Rabbi Shraga Feivel DANZIGER, who passed away in 1848,
become the Alexander Rebbe? He lived during Rabbi Yitzchak Meir's
lifetime. Was he the first and did Rabbi Yitzchak Meir receive the
title after the passing of Rabbi Shraga Feivel DANZIGER? Did Rabbi
Shraga Feivel DANZIGER have any offspring that also assumed that
title? I know that there are several Alexander Rebbes today.
Please clarify if you are able.

Have a Happy Chanukah!
