JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Michael ORLOW from Cherson, Russia #general

Lin <lin2@...>
 

hi,
I've never had to do any genealogical research in Russia. Michael
"Misha" ORLOW (ORLOF) (ORLOV?) >from Cherson, Russia was my mom's
first cousin's father. His great granddaughter found a postcard
written in German, sent to her grandmother in the US in 1945 >from a
"Jack". Jack speaks about being asked to play the violin at a
hospital. Miriam's great-grandfather was a Violinist for the Vienna
symphony orchestra for awhile.

Miriam asked me to see if I can find some information about her
grandfather's family, perhaps finding a link to Jack. All we know is
Misha Orlow came >from Russia and I found his birthdate November 22,
1882 on JOWBR. Does anyone have any suggestions on where I could
start. I found only about Michael on ancestry.com, nothing that would
indicate a family member.

Thanks so much,

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Viewmate Yiddish Translation of 7-page document with my grandafther's memories of the Holocaust and Concentration Camps #general

Avraham Y. Kahana
 

Hi all,

I am seeking an Yiddish translation of a 7-page
document left by my grandfather z'l with his memories of the Holocaust
and the concentration camps we was in.

The Yiddish must be Bessarabish, he lived in what was at their time
Romania, and today is Moldova's northern border with Ukraine.

For the meantime, only 4 of the 7 pages are online on viewmate.

Here are the links:

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: searching for databases of Jews captured by Russians during WW2 #general

tom
 

Jews were put into forced labour battalions, which were used to
support the Hungarian troops. They were not issued weapons or
uniforms, and kept under armed guard. and they were shipped out to
the Russian front, where many perished or were captured as prisoners
of war by the soviets.

There is a Hungarian database,
http://www.hadifogoly.hu/web/hadifogoly/index ,
which contains casualties and prisoners of war, including (Jewish)
forced labourers. It's based on Hungarian and Soviet records. The 3
input fields, in order are: surname, given name, and date of birth,
and the button says "search". You can deselect sets of records, such
as hungarian or russian (sic), but it's best to start with all of them.

and there is a museum in Israel of the forced labour battalions, which
has a searchable database:
http://www.tm-it.co.il/avodat-kfiya/show_item.asp?levelId=65072 .
the three search fields are: name, place of birth, and regiment number.

For both sites, it's helpful to be able to read Hungarian.

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Records from Ukraine (Odessa) #ukraine

go415510510@gmail.com
 

Hi all,

I'm looking for help getting records >from Ukraine. I've had no luck
with finding anything on JewishGen.

The names I have are:

Chaje MAIL and Moishe/Moses SCHECHOWITZ married in Ukraine around
1871, probably in Odessa, possibly in Volochisk. I believe that Chaje
originally be >from Trysten and Moses may be >from Korets.

Their daughter, Sarah Schechowitz born in Odessa, July 15, 1872.
Married in Odessa to Emmanuel GOLDBERG, March 1892 or 1893. They had
four children born in Odessa, Hyman (Chaim) Dec 4 1892 or 3, Harry b.
Oct 4 1897, Ruth Mary Aug 2 1901, and Jacob April 20 1905.

Unfortunately I only have the anglicized names of most of them. I am
not sure what Schechowitz or Mail originally was, nor do I know any of
the younger sets "real" first names.

I sent an email to archive@... but have not gotten a
response. I am going to visit Odessa next month and am wondering if it
would be worth hiring a researcher there. If so, does anyone have any
idea of how much I should expect to pay or have any recommendations
for researchers?

Thanks!
Lina

There are at least 50 answers to your initial question, because each
state has its own rules! Thanks for being more specific. ;)

New York is easy: familysearch.org has a good index of marriage records
from there. A more rudimentary one, but possibly more complete, is at
http://stevemorse.org/vital/nymarriages.html?index=groom

A lot of Connecticut data is on line at Familysearch also.

The marriage would probably have been in Connecticut or New York
between 1870-1890.
