Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Nickname Yolek? #ukraine

Liz Hanellin
 

Hello!

My grandmother, Lillian SHUKET, and her siblings, were born in Lipovets (Kiev Gubernia). She came to the U.S. in 1923. 

I recently found a photograph >from "the old country" that is labeled "Uncle Yolek Shuket" -- this is a family member of whom I was not previously aware. He would have been the brother of Lillian's father, Samuel ("Shmiel") SHUKET. Samuel's father was David SHUKET and his mother was Breindel (humorously listed on Samuel's death certificate as "Branudle"). 

As best as I can tell, Yolek is a nickname, but I am unclear as to what it is a nickname for.

There are two SHUKHATs listed in the Kiev Gubernia Duma Voters List (1907) who are >from Lipovets: Volko and Ionl; their patronymic is Duvidov. Could either one of these be Yolek?

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Has anyone been able to obtain family information >from for the town of
Khashevata which in the region of Gaivoron, Kirovograd oblast and/or region
of Gaysin, Vinnitsa oblast? My understanding is that the closest archives
would have been in Kamenets Podolskiy possibly moved >from there after the
fire to Khmelnitsky Archives.

I am particularly interested in locating the 1897 All-Russian census for
Khashevata. Does anyone know whether the 1897 All-Russian census data are
kept in one central location? A researcher who searched the Kiev Central
Archives located family information >from the 1897 census of my family from
the Cherkassy area which I found very helpful. She stated that that the
Central Archives in Kiev do not have material >from Khashevata.

Any help would be appreciated.

Did your family live in New York? There are many interesting research
possibilities in the Big Apple! JewishGen's Intermediate Course,
Breaking Brick Walls in the United States, will focus on New York
Resources. This course will be especially useful to those who visit
NY; we'll have suggestions on where to research, where to wander and
how to get there.

If, despite basic online research (census >from familysearch &
ancestry, vital records >from italiangen) you have not yet found the
Hebrew names, birth year or town for your U.S. immigrant ancestors
consider this course as it focuses on the more esoteric documents our
ancestors generated, including naturalization, military and
governmental records, death records (probate, obituaries, cemeteries),
and local archival research.

We feature a personal mentoring program; students use our online
FORUM, post an ancestral branch, set goals for research, and work one
on one with the instructor. Eight text lessons can be downloaded to
read at your own pace and an optional field trip to a New York archive
will be scheduled. This course is open for enrollment. PLEASE read the
course descriptions and requirements (8-10 hours per week) on
www.jewishgen.org/education and email any questions.

I look forward to interfacing with every student.

This Sunday in NYC: Gesher Galicia Spring Program: "Austria, Poland, Ukraine: 3 Cities, 5 Archives, 12 Wonderful Days of Discovery" #galicia

Pamela Weisberger
 

You are invited to Gesher Galicia's spring regional meeting coming up
this weekend in New York City:

Sunday, May 18, 2014

11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Center for Jewish History
Forchheimer Auditorium
15 West 16th St.
New York, NY 10011

"Austria Poland, Ukraine:
3 Countries, 5 Archives, 12 Wonderful Days of Discovery"

In addition to highlighting our new research projects and the All
Galicia Database there will be a special presentation.

GG board member, John Diener, >from Ottawa, Canada, and Pamela
Weisberger will talk about our trip in April 2013 to Austria, Poland,
and Ukraine. We timed the trip to attend the opening of the Museum
of the History of Polish Jews building in Warsaw, and over twelve days
we visited archives in Vienna, Warsaw, Przemysl, Lviv and Ternopil. We
toured the new Museum, viewed "Rotem," a powerful documentary on
Warsaw Ghetto fighter Simcha Rotem, heard a "Bund Band" jazz
concert, were treated to an incredible dinner with Piotr Pininski, great
grandson of Count Leonard Pininski, the magnate nobleman who once
owned the Galician town of Grzymalow where John's father and
Pamela's grandfather were born. After a short stop in Krakow, to give
a presentation to the local population trying to discover more about
their Jewish roots, we journeyed to Przemysl and toured the Polish
State Archives there. Later, in Ukraine, escorted by Alex and Natalie
Dunai, we visited Grzymalow, its ruined synagogue, cheder and Jewish
cemetery. Learn about the trip's highlights and get glimpses of the
Museum's core exhibition which will debut this October. We will also
explain the challenges of archival research in different locales (from
white gloves to burnt documents and moldy dust) and discover the
exceptional opportunity to connect past to present through
investigative genealogical research.

Admission is free. No reservations are necessary.

Directions to the Center for Jewish History are here:
http://www.cjh.org/p/9

Speakers:

John Diener is an Ottawa, Canada businessman who is also the
vice-president of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Ottawa, and is on
the board of directors of Gesher Galicia. John co-sponsored the
filming of all matzevot in Zhvanets, Ukraine; the data on these 1,200
stones was submitted to JOWBR and he has amassed 2,500 names on
his family tree. John is shtetl leader for Grzymalow, Ukraine and writes
a monthly column, "Connecting the Branches," for the Ottawa Jewish
Bulletin. He is the proud owner of Saslove's Meat Market in the center
of Ottawa's historic marketplace, which has been an institution in the
city since 1954.

Pamela Weisberger is president and research coordinator of Gesher
Galicia and 1st V.P./program chair for the Jewish Genealogical Society
of Los Angeles. She is also a professional genealogist and has
conducted research in Polish, German, Israeli, Ukrainian, and Austrian
archives.

More info here:

Joint Research in USHMM -- Lwow Judenrat #galicia

Eli Brauner
 

As mentioned in a previous message, a large collection of documents
from the Nazi period in Lwow is stored in the United States Holocaust
Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. On the USHMM site one can find:

Title: Teka Lwowska (Sygn. 229)
Lwow Files: Dates -1898-1979 and 1941-1945
Scope and Content: This collection contains reports, articles, clippings,
and various other documents relating to the persecution and execution
of Jews in Lwow, Poland (now Lviv, Ukraine); the activities of the Jewish
council (Judenrat) in the Lwow ghetto; the confiscation of Jewish
property; the eviction of Jews >from their homes; various "actions" in the
ghetto, some specifically targeting elderly Jews; the mistreatment of
Jews by Ukrainians; the burning of synagogues; the extortion of money
from Jews in the ghetto; the activities of the German police and Gestapo;
Jews taken to forced labor camps near Lwow; the activities of the Jewish
police; the pogrom against the Lwow Jews at the time of the German
invasion in 1941; a massacre in the Brygidki prison in Lwow; and the
oaths of Lwow rabbis >from 1898 to 1928.

Also can be found a card index of Jews that were allowed to work
outside the Lwow ghetto; records of the Judenrat >from 1940-42. And
the Museum has also a reel >from the Lviv Oblast Archive with records
that contain information about the German occupation of the city.

As I have said in my former message, I would like to suggest the
establishment of a research group to look in this huge collection. The
idea is to hire research services and the researcher will look for names
given to him by the group members. As far as there will be members in
the group, so will the price go down. If this idea is appealing to you,
please let me know.

Viewmate: Translation from Romanian & Russian - Samuel Brofman photo/postcard 1913 #bessarabia

Pamela Weisberger
 

I've just posted a record on Viewmate (#33729) for which I'd
appreciate a translation. It appears to be dated December 29, 1912.
The link is:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM33729

I'm not sure of the language. Might be Romanian or Russian -- or
both. (There is handwritten text and a stamp which is definitely in
Cyrillic.)

The photo on the reverse side is of Samuel Brofman born in Bessarabia,
who moved to Odessa. He may be wearing a soldier's uniform. Sometime
between the date of this photo and summer 1913 Samuel found his way to
Brazil and eventually America.

If you can provide a word-for-word translation, it would be most appreciated!

Need help with writing on Ship manifest #general

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Hi - I'm trying to read the last name of the contact person on a ship
manifest. Here's the image:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/26790684@N05/14006357617/in/photostream/

The name I'm trying to decipher is "Uncle Stanley ?????", "5 Saratoga
Ave, Brooklyn, NY"

The writing is very clear, but I have not a clue as to what the first
few letters of the person's surname is.

Bonus points, for anyone that can actually locate the person on a census
or city directory! Thanks.
