Ukraine SIG #Ukraine ViewMate translation request - Russian #ukraine

Fay Bussgang
 

I've posted a surname in Russian for which I'd appreciate a translation/transliteration. I'd like to know what the surname of Moszek is at Number 82 on this index of births. Is it Biezynski? Bytynski? Surrounding names are shown so further samples of the scribe's handwriting can be seen.

It is on ViewMate at the following address: http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM45913

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you so much.

The "Faces of Margraten" project, placed more than 3,300 photos of service
members buried or listed on Tablets of the Missing at the Netherlands
American Cemetery at Margraten, last year during a 4-day tribute. The
project is sponsored by the Foundation United Adopters American War Graves.
The aim of the group is to remember U.S. soldiers buried in various overseas
American cemeteries. The project has grown to 4,000 photos and they will be
on display 1-5 May, 2016. The cemetery has 8,301 graves and 1,722 names of
service members who were missing in action. The website is:

If you have a photo of soldier buried or memorialized in Margarten, please
submit it via

Information will be stored in the Fields of Honor database, where
information can be found about soldiers either buried or memorialized on the
American War Cemeteries Margraten, Ardennes and Henri-Chapelle. The database

To search for names of those interred or listed at the Margraten cemetery,
go to the American Battle Monuments Commission website:

honoring American armed forces where they have served. The ABMC operates 25
permanent American burial grounds and 27 memorials, markers and monuments.
There are 124,905 American war dead interred in these cemeteries >from WWl,
WWll, and the Mexican American War. Over 94,000 American servicemen and
women are commemorated for those missing in action, lost or buried at sea

Bluma Leska SHEVELIOVICH d/o Zelik #lithuania

Angie Elfassi
 

Hi,

from new records appearing on LitvakSIG I have come across the
following marriage:

In Vilnius, Moshe REICHZELIGMAN (appears in the record as:
REYTSELIKMAN) married on 11th December 1864 to Bluma Leska
SHEVELIOVICH d/o Zelik.

1. Does this connect to anyone?
2. What would be a more modern name >from Leska or could it be
a typo and should be Leah?

Thanks and regards

Sam ZIMMER, born about 1888-1894 in Chernowitz Austria #general

Barbara Zimmer
 

Searching for more information on Sam ZIMMER who married Sadie DAVIDOFF.
Their daughter Esther was born December 1919 and enumerated in the 1920
census as less than one month old. They had two younger daughters, Ruth
and Shirley. Lived in NYC and then in Sullivan County NY.

I may be related to Sam ZIMMER and need more information on him. His
naturalization form says he was born in "Chernowitz Bukovina." The 1920
census says he arrived in 1915 and received his papers in 1919. He
arrived in the US as Sender ZIMMER when he crossed the border >from Canada
in 1915. He arrived in Canada in 1913 aboard the Montezuma >from Antwerp
and was headed to a sister in Montreal.

So - who was his sister in Montreal? Who was his father?

Note: this is **not** the same man as Sender ZIMMER who was married to
Minnie and came >from Zborow. That latter Sender/Sam is definitely one of
my relatives.
