Given Name " Greeka" #general

barrychernick@...
 

Does anyone know the name Greeka or Greka (the spelling is mine).
My great uncle left a tape recording of family stories and this was the
name of one of my great aunts. This is the only information I have about
her name. She was born a Schulman, near Minsk about 1870.
Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Purveyors to the Tsar #general

IRSWED <irswed@...>
 

I have an 88yr. old relative that related the following story. His great
grandfather, (my great-great grandfather), MENDEL, saved the CZAR in the
25 Crimean War. He was given land near MARTINYA as a reward. This land
served as the dowry for his daughter SARAH who married DOV BER (BERYL)
ROMISCH.
Is there anyway to find documents to support this or further names? I am
having difficulty tracing ROMISH.

If you have a relative who lived in Harrisburg, PA and who was a
member of Kesher Israel, an Orthodox Congregation, I can check the
cemetery Index for you to see if, in fact, that relative is buried in
KI's cemetery.

My information covers the years >from "inception" through 12/31/93. If

Name game #lithuania

Andrea Vangor <drav@...>
 

Dear List,

I had the good fortune to locate the 6-volume set by Ira Glazier, Emigration>from the Russian Empire, and a library in a town about 30 miles away. I found -- yipee -- the ship that carried my great-grandmother and her family to New York. For your interest, they left Hamburg on May 30, 1890, sailed to West Hartlepool on the feeder ship Kaiser, took a train across England to Liverpool, and arrived in New York on June 13 aboard the Gallia.

The Glazier volume, unlike the Hamburg database, identifies the oldest
Binder child as Simdel, a male, not Sundel, a female. On the other hand, it also identifies my great-grandmother as a boy! Still, if Mr. Glazier was working >from another document, he might have read the name Simdel
accurately. I am hoping, rather desperately, that this child turns out to
be someone named Benny Bender in Bridgeport CT who has the father of this
family identied as his father on his tombstone, if I make myself clear.
Can anyone comment on the name Simdel, if such exists?

Thank you,

Andrea Vangor

Lithuanian Cemeteries #lithuania

NSWeiler <NSWeiler@...>
 

I was told that a plan to photograph or copy tombstones in Lithuanian
cemeteries was to be discussed at the Salt Lake City JGSI convention.
Does anyone have information about such a project?

Last year I was in the Luokke/Luknik cemetery where many tombstones are
in a relatively good condition. I proposed that they be cleaned and
copied, but was told to wait for a discussion at the convention.

thanks to all #yizkorbooks

Joyce Field <jfield@...>
 

I want to take this opportunity to wish Chag Sameach to all of you
who have donated translations of yizkor book material and those who
have contributed money to our fundraising projects. We now have 29
of these projects at
http://www.JewishGen.org/JewishGen-erosity/YizkorTrans.html. I am
especially grateful to all of the project coordinators who have
dedicated so much of their time to coordinating the translations of
yizkor books. Without all of you the Yizkor Book Project would have
not been able to achieve its current level. You have shared our
vision of providing online translations of yizkor books freely
available to all and for this we are most appreciative.

And to our magnificent technical staff, headed by John Berman,
webmaster, and Lance Ackerfeld, QA coordinator and Permissions
Coordinator, I bow down in awe of your talents and dedication. My
sincere gratitude also to Harriet Brown, my administrative right hand
and to Sandra Krisch, Content Editor.

Just some idea of what we have all achieved in one year. At the end
of November 1999 we had 148 translations online; at the end of
November 2000 we had 249. Looking forward to 2001 being another
spectacular year, I wish you all peace and good health.

Re: Getzel #latvia

The origin of the name Getzel.
My Hebrew name is Eliakim Getzel, as was my great-grandfather's. I
understand that the two names usually go together, the first being the
Hebrew name, the second a kinui. I believe that Getzel derives originally
from the German Gottschalk, though I doubt if this was the case for my
ancestor >from Dvinsk.

thought you would like to know.....

The VIDEO store at the JewishGen Mall is now open!
while there is a tremendous amount >from which to choose...I thought members
of this group would be especially interested in two selections >from the
Baltic States & Poland section:

Jewish Riga

30 min. 1999. English soundtrack. Filmed by the well-known
genealogist, Alexsandrs Feigmanis, this video features the old Jewish
cemetery, the ghetto area of the Moscow suburb, the Jewish quarter of
1870-1940, a monument to Jewish victims of the Nazis, the Riga synagogue
including the rarely seen inside, many street views and the Riga Jewish
Museum exhibition.

and this one too....

Beautiful Kurland

45 min. 1999. This video was filmed by Aleksandrs Feigmanis, the well-known
genealogist, in the Latvian towns of Mitau, Tukums, Sabile, Kandau,
Goldingen and Windau. Discover nice landscapes, walk on the cosy streets of
Tukums and on the others where our ancestors once walked. In addition, see
what is left of the synagogues and some of the 150-year old tombstones.

All our videos are in NTSC format, primarily used in the U.S., and Canada.
Both of these (as well as many others) are available in PAL version which
is needed for most countries overseas.

You'll find these videos and a host of others at the JewishGenMall

<http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgenmall>


Click on Browse then scroll down to see the link to Videos.

Please bear in mind that all your purchases in the mall generate
commissions which help support JewishGen....just like any Museum store
you've ever visited.

Happy Chanukah to all

Moderator Note: I have a series of videos done
by Aleksandrys including the ones mentioned.
The general quality is good and
they are very interesting for researchers
unable to travel to these places.
