Happy New Year. I have found a record at Yad Vashem for a possible relative,
Dvosya HVARTZBLATT. The information at Yad Vashem is >from a record of people
evacuated to Sosnovskiy (Chelyabinsk) Russia. Does anyone here have information on
that evacuation, the list, or other information that might help me pursue this
lead?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Lorraine,

My colleague Mikulas Liptak (vivit@...) of Kezmarok
re-photographed the tombstones in Sobrance, and I translated the
contents, which I believe may have given better results than what is
currently posted in JOWBR. There are a number of stones for
JACUBOVITS and GRUNBERGER there.

A number of WEISSBERGERs lived/died in Huncovce, Slovakia, but while
there are some death records, there are only three tombstones.

Perhaps you know about these already.

Happy Chanukah back to you and members of H-SIG,

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Ekaterinaslav death #ukraine

bernerfolk
 

I have anecdotal information that a widow >from Ciechanowiec
(70 mi. ENE of Warsaw) named Chawa Gitel (KAGAN) RYBAK was
displaced during WWI and died in Ekaterinoslav on 20 May, 1920.
Unfortunately I don't have any indication of the specific town.
I've looked in the Ukraine database on JG and the Ukraine SIG
Master database of names but I don't see anything relevant.

I'm not aware of any other family in the area but Chawa Gitel
had (7) children, all but one of whom emigrated to the US or
Argentina. It's possible the one son who didn't emigrate,
Noteh RYBAK married to Basha Fagel, could have spent time in
Ekaterinoslav but I don't have any further information on him.

I'd appreciate guidance on searching further for records, but also,
context for this type of relocation. Any insights into this period
would be welcome.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Seeking Weiner Family Circle Descendents #general

Lisa Cohn
 

I'm seeking descendents of a cousins club that was formed in Brooklyn &
Harrisburg PA in 1937.

Abraham & Hannah Weiner >from Zagare Lithuania had a number of children who's kids
formed a cousins club after the wedding of my grandparents, Sam and Mathilda Swoff.
Please email me if any of these names sound familiar: Harris Weiner - Married
Sarah, had 3 children: Marion, Anna (married Robert Netzer) and Joseph. Harris
owned a dry goods store and a furniture store. The store is mentioned on this
website, and there is a grandsom, Billy of Brooklyn who comments on the bottom of
the page:
http://lostnewyorkcity.blogspot.com/2012/07/weiner-brothers.html

His brother, Morris,lived with Harris and family and when Harris dies in 1917,
Morris stays with his brother's family, and is listed as Head of household with his
sister-in-law and nieces and nephew.

Bessie Weiner marries Max Claman: Hannah (marred Harry Chelsey), Evelyn, Mae
(married Leonard Levy), Julius (Jules), Mae, Rose, and Sylvia.

Rebecca Weiner (born 1873) married Israel Marwell. Their children: Estelle
(married Max or Mack Meyer), Florence (married name Wallenstein), Hilda (marrid
name Reisler) and Hilton (married Pearl Berman). Israel was a charter member of
Temple Emanuel of Boro park and his son served there as president for some time as
listed in several obituaries for members of the synagogue.

Nathan and Fanny Weiner had several children: Anne (married Mac Weinstein), Celia
(born July 1891), Murray/Maurice (married Billie Weiner), Nettie, Tillie (married
Phil Smulian and had 3 children: Norman, Natalie and Alvin).

Samuel Weiner had two children, wife's name currently unknown. He had a boy, and
a daughter named Ruth. Ruthie married name Rothstein

The Harrisburg Cousins.

Helen Weiner, married Samuel Lehrman. children including Samuel, Albert, Ann (
married Betram Katzman), Ethel May (who married Herman Barash and moved back to
NY), Ivy Sara (married George Friedman), Jacob and Max (married Gladys Soiberman).
Lena Weiner married Isaac Friedman (also >from Zagare, so they probably married
there) and had one daughter named Helen (married Lee Weinstein). Celia (Tsvia)
Weiner, married Abraham Eukoseil Swoff and were my great grandparents. Their
children were:
Samuel Swoff (my grandfather), Louis, Barnett, Lena, Anne/Hannie (Fichtenbaum),
Molly (married Al Meirow/Meirowitz), The cousins club discontinued in NY after a
while, but I found an article about a plane crash in a park where cousins of the
Weiner Family Circle were having a picnic in or near Harrisburg PA. Also found an
article about an Aunt Lena who was having a 103 birthday party in the 50s.

Anyone having any info on these folks, I would love to hear >from you and I have
considerable info to share.

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Searching for info on great-grandfather: Srul MINSKY from Odessa #ukraine

Daniyel Berchenko
 

Hello Ukraine SIG Community,

This is my first time posting here. I'm researching many branches of
my family, but thought I'd begin with the one that I'm focusing most
on right now.

I'm trying to find any information I can on my great-grandfather and
his family. His name was Srul Shulimovich MINSKY. He lived in Odessa
pre and post Revolution. I don't know his birth or death dates. But he
died before WWII. Srul's wife was named Rivka. I don't know anything
else about her. Based on Srul's patronymic name, his father was Shulim
MINSKY.

Unconfirmed information I have on Srul is that he was a rabbi in
Odessa before the revolution. My father thinks he heard that he was a
Reform rabbi, but not sure about that. I'm hoping to confirm if he was
a rabbi and find in which synagogue or prayer house he served as a
rabbi.

His daughter, my grandmother >from my father's side, was Dina MINSKY.
She was born in 1908 in Odessa. So Srul was likely born before 1890,
and likely closer to 1880 or slightly before because Dina had two
older brothers. I don't have any information on her brothers, Srul's
sons, other than they immigrated to the U.S. sometime before WWII and
we think that they then immigrated to Israel sometime after the war. I
don't know their names or birth dates.

The birth-record of my grandmother Dina indicates that Srul came to
Odessa >from Yuzefpol, Ukraine (pre-Revolution name). The town's
current name is Yosypivka. It is in the Kirovohrads'ka oblast.

If anyone has any information that can help me fill in the blanks, I
would be grateful for you sharing it! You can email me at
danny.berchenko@....

I'm currently travelling and actually visiting Odessa right now. I
have access to the archives. If anyone knows if there's a file there
that simply has an alphabetical listing of past Odessa rabbis, and in
which collection it would be, that would be super helpful. But perhaps
no such simple listing exists?

Thank you,
Danny BERCHENKO

Dear Friends:
Thank you so much to all who have supported the efforts of Ukraine SIG and
JewishGen through your monetary contributions and your contributions of time and
effort in the endless task of locating, acquiring, translating, transcribing,
proofreading data for the good of everyone. Not all of our projects are actively
seeking funds so if you want to make a donation but don't see a specific project
that meets your needs, it means that there is no project manager. Since we have
well over 200,000 pages of documents still to be translated, >from all over the
Ukraine SIG territory and more that is waiting to be acquired, your donations to
either Ukraine SIG general fund or to digital acquisition and translations would
be the best place to direct your donation.


I have just submitted about 2,000 lines of data pertaining to marriages
in Zhitomir and in the Nezhin District. Many thanks to Alex Kopelberg
and to Moshe Kuten for their hard work in preparing these translations. Next up
with anticipated submission at the end of the first quarter of 2017 (data can only
be submitted once a quarter) are tens of thousands of lines >from revision lists
which have been awaiting my completion of review of vital records. There are no
vital records currently in the queue for final proofreading (but that will probably
change soon).

To answer your questions before you ask them:
1) I have no idea when these will appear in the JewishGen Ukraine
Database - I don't think that the material I submitted in September has
been included in it yet

2) I cannot perform a search for anyone of these translations nor of any
others we have done. If you have particular interest in a project we are
working on for which funds are being collected and you donate $100 or
more, the manager of that project will give you copies of the
spreadsheets with translations before the transcriptions are proofread.
If there is no project soliciting funds then spreadsheets are not
available. That is the case of the current submission of data to JewishGen

3) I cannot provide anyone with copies of or access to the documents we
use for translations. This is per agreement with the agencies and
organizations that give us access to the data. The Ukraine SIG website's
town pages have a description of all data we work with and where the
documents come from.

4) I cannot recommend guides, researchers or anyone else. For
recommendations, look at the JewishGen InfoFile on genealogists - these
are recommendations made by individuals, not by Ukraine SIG.

I wish everyone a wonderful remainder of Hanukkah and a secular year
filled with all that's good.
