Dear Colleagues!

My name is Roman Tunkel and I am researching Tunkel family
originated in area around Bobruisk. Currently I am looking for any documents
like death certificate, marriage certificate, birth certificate for several
TUNKELs >from Bobruisk, Pinsk, Glussk and Rogachev. I am capable to read or
write Russian so understand this documents is not a problem.
Can you help me with advice or some practical idea how to get this information?
Do you know somebody who can help with that?
Please answer privately.

Mogilev Jewish Cemetary... #belarus

Gerry Gilstrop <ggilstrop@...>
 

Recently on JewishGen.org I read that the cemetary in Mogilev is in
poor condition. I was curious if anyone has photographs of tombstones, a
name index, or perhaps a map (recent or otherwise) of the cemetary.

If so, does anyone have the information accesible either via a personal
website, or an Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) file?

Also does anyone know where in relationship to current Mogilev the
cemetary is located on a map?

Thanks in advance,

Location of Mogilev Jewish Quarter.......... #belarus

Gerry Gilstrop <ggilstrop@...>
 

Hello!

Does anyone out there know where within the city of Mogilev the Jewish
Quarter existed? It would be helpful if general, as well as concrete
descriptions of its location (such as ward numbers, police districts,etc.),
could be provided.

If anyone has detailed city maps (Russian, German, American, or others)
which could precisely articulate these areas, could they please provide a
website upon which they are listed, or perhaps an Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) file
of the map itself available to those interested in Mogilev?

Also does anyone, especially those who have been to the city, know what
the quarter is like today (destroyed in WW2, made into a business area,
etc), and if there are any visible vestiges of what used to once be there?

Thanks in advance,

Re: Bronx Naturalization Certificate #general

Phyllis Kramer <phylliskramer1@...>
 

Anita Friedman told of a 1927naturalization >from the Bronx
county Court, Bronx, New York, for her uncle Sam Friedman.

Usually when one has the certificate number, date and court, one
can write to the Courthouse or National Archives and get the
application papers (with all the information we genealogists
want).

But in this case, no one has ever microfilmed these **County**
papers; and there are lots of them. I found many family
naturalizations and probate documents in the back rooms in the
Bronx Courthouse. (I'm hoping the NYJGS will take on the Bronx
after they finish the wonderful job they are doing creating the
Brooklyn Indexes.) I've never tried by mail or phone, but the
address is 851 Grand Concourse, room 118, 718 590 3635.

Or Anita will have to go to the Bronx Courthouse (its near the
Yankee Stadium in a a beautiful old building), and look up the
application in the bound books. In a way it's more exciting that
way, the bound old, dusty books make it seem sooo real!

Happy hunting....

Vessel- Bulgarra- Bulgaria #general

judith reinsdorf <REINSDORFsearch@...>
 

On my Grandfathers Declaration Of Intention...it states he arrived on
the vessel-Bulgarra....May 15, 1903....Then on The Petition of
Naturalization, it states he arrived on the vessel Bulgaria.. July 18,
1903.....This would be easily clarified and I could learn a lot more
from the passenger list.... if I could find these vessels......they dont
seem to exist.......I have tried many sites of Immigrant ships....

Towie, 1st name or last? #general

judith reinsdorf <REINSDORFsearch@...>
 

My great uncle was known as Theodore Reinsdorf... I sent for the
naturalization papers... On the cerificate of arrival it says name of
alien....Reinsdorf, Towie.
Is Towie a first or last name? All of the other papers say Theodore
Reinsdorf.....
Could it be that his 1st name was Towie and he Americanized it to
Theodore? I never heard of a 1st name of Towie...there are people with
that last name........

Re: Benche #general

Hillel Cooperman <hillel@...>
 

We have a "Bentsia" that is a "Ben-Zion."

There is some dispute as to what my grandfather's Hebrew name was.
Cousins called him Benche -- with the "che" pronounced as in "chest."
I presume Benche is a nickname. But a nickname for what? If it is
relevant, he was born in Novogrudok, in northwest Minsk gubernia, in
1896.
Benche might be the diminutive of Benjamin - Benjie - Benche

Question -searching for relative and I do not have married name. #general

Suee20@...
 

Hi I am looking for the addresss and telephone no. of a relative,
but I do not have her married name. I know her maiden name. It is
probably Brentwood, Long Island. I live in Queens NY.

She was probably married in one of the boros, Brooklyn or Queens. Her
parents are not living. I can locate her mothers Soc. Sec. records.

Thanks

LUBANSKY - GINSBERG - RUBIN - LEVY #general

Mmoreland@...
 

I have been looking through the JewishGen databases and e-mail archives and
believe that this is a group that might help be find out something about my
ancestors. I know very little about them.

My grandfather's name was Alter or Abraham GINSBERG. He came to NYC in
the early 1900's with his siblings, Hinde and Isle. He died when my
mother was very young.

My grandmother's maiden name was Sarah LUBANSKY who came to the US some
time after her husband (They had been married in Russia), and my mother
tells me that she was well educated and very proud that she was from
Bobruisk. Her father's name was Lazar and her mother's name was Nettie
LEVY. Her father may have been a teacher of some sort. She had a sister
who remained in Russia, and cousins in NYC. She didn't remain close to
her sister or cousins, and would not talk much about the past because she
came to this country "to forget all that." One cousin may have had a
restaurant on East Broadway in the 1920's. Another cousin that my mother
remembers quite well was Sam RUBIN, who was a reporter for the Jewish
Daily Forward.

I've learned that -sky can mean that a person was >from that town, and
someone who wrote an aticle in the Belarus online newsletter told me that
he found one LUBANSKY in the translation work of Slutzk Historical Society
with the Slutzk Chevra Kadisha records. The record is: 589. On Friday
the eve of the holy day of shabat the ninth of tamuz (25 June 1920) passed
away in a institution the venerable mh't Yakov the son of Shmarya-Shlomo
Hacohen LUBANSKY.... Can someone tell me what mh't and Hacohen might mean.

Any connections? I'm not even sure of when my grandparents arrived in this
country, just some time before 1910, so I don't even know where to start
looking.

TIA!
