Does anyone know if Elieser, Lazer and Leiser could be variations on the same name? And another question, is Leyba a womans or a mans name?
If it is a womans name how come that it occurs in the Courland voters list since only men were aloud to vote?

Greatful for your help

Re: Soldier in the Czar's Army from Ukraine and Belarus #belarus

RE: Linda Higgins' posting on Jewish soldiers of the Tsar:

Jewish youths were routinely drafted into the army for 25year
stints. That way they couldn't marry and father Jewish children.
My own grandfather was one of these (called "Janissaries"). He said
you couldn't resist or the Cossacks would come to the shtetl and kill
your family and burn your house down to send a message to the others.
So he accepted, but deserted before being sent to the front, and fled
to America. There's a wonderful description of this practice in the
book "A Century of Ambivalence: Jews of Russia and the Soviet Union,
1870-1970." Many wealthy families would pay poor ones to send their
sons instead, assuming the wealthy draftee's identity. The rabbis
denounced this practice.

An email query to a KUNKIS in Germany resulted in someone named
KUNKIS who is not Jewish, and he, in turn, sent me listings for
about 30 KUNKIS listings in the German phone directories, with
non-Jewish sounding first names! I have not contacted them,
since I do not speak German. So there appears to be more non-Jewish
people with this name (spelled as I spell mine) in Germany, while the
Jewish people with this name seemed to have emigrated to the U.S.

Many Jewish people have "non-Jewish" sounding first names. Do not

You probably know Jews named Kevin, Eric, Scott, Jennifer, Vanessa,
Andrew, Peter, Rosemary, and Anthony. Jews may take/give names popular
in their country, whether Germany, U.S./Great Britain/Australia, France,
or Argentina, for example. Do you know Siegfried, Friedrich, Marianne,
Marcel, Pierre, Jacques, Erika, Antonio, or Jorge?

Quite a few of my family members left Poland to work in Germany between
World War I and II, and some ended up there after WWII. I would never
have guessed that octagenarian Siegfried Kellermann was my relative, but
he is.

Postal mark - England? Viewmate #general

Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

Hi, everyone!
I have a photo-postcard; the kind with a personal photo on the front, and
postcard markings on the back - ready to mail.
I think the photo is my grandmother's now-long-lost brother Hirsh/Herman
RINCOVER. I suspect he was in England or Palestine at the time, possibly
during the 1920's or 1930's. The only writing says, "My father Herman
before his death."

Since the card was never actually mailed, the only other clue is the
printing in the corner where the stamp would've been stuck. Sort of
a "postal mark".

I've uploaded a scan of that postal mark to Viewmate #329. Might one of
you be able to confirm the country of origin, and possible time period?

Genearl in the Czar's Army from Moscow- Saltikov, Shaltakoff #belarus

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

To all,
I welcome any suggestions on how to locate a Russian general
in the Czar's Army before the 1890s, Jewish or non-Jewish.

The Shaltakoff, Saltikuff, Saltykow or Saltikov (any variety of spellings
is possible) family married into my Singman family in l904 after
emigrating in thel890s. According to their family story they have
a Russian General >from Moscow (either born there, or stationed there)
in their family.

I have found out with the help of others and online information that
the name is quite common in Russia, that there are members of
the royal family with that name, princes, counts and two generals
headquartered in Moscow. Towns, bridges and the National Library
of St. Petersburg have this name.

Now I want to know how I can go about finding the link between a
Jewish family in New York City and a Russian family >from Moscow.

Any and all suggestions are most welcome.

In response to Linda Higgins post on January 20th (Belarus SIG), it is
almost impossible to find records of soldiers in the Czar's army unless
they
were officers or in some special branch or cadre. The records that exist
are
in the state (national) archives in either St. Petersburg or Moscow.
