This problem can be helped with full participation in the International
Jewish Cemetery Project. Phase II allows you to browse through all the
names of a cemetery and
you will recognize the person you want when your find him or her.
What is this project? At the present time I am computerizing the record's
of my Shul's Cemetery and would be happy to include my records in a
centralized database.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen "Censuses of jews in Ukraine 1765-1791" #general

I found very interesting book in the library of Yad Vashem Museum:
"Censuses of jewish population in South- West Part in 1765- 1791.
Archives of S-W Russia, part 5", 2 volumes edited, by Kamanin I.,
1910,Kiev.
It contains a lot of statistical information about jewish societies in
these part of Poland, which later (1795) became a part of Russia
(Volynskaya, Podolskaya, Kievskaya gubernia).Thenit was 4 "voevodstvo"
(region): Kiev (including Kiev, Zhitomir, Ovtchutch "povet"-districts),
Volyn (Lutsk, Vladimir, Kremenets povet), Podol (Kamenets,Letitchev,
Tchervonograd povet), Bratslav (Bratsslav and Vinnitsa
povet).
Every jewish society in this huge region is listed, number of jews
living, belonging to "kagal". In each place there are first and
patronimic
names of 3 jews participating those censuses ( usualy between them rabi
and starosta of place).
To bad is that it was before jews used family names.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Researching at the Television Museum #general

Vicki Karno <vkarno@...>
 

Armed with an obituary >from the NY Times, I had a list of movies,plays and
television shows
where actor/cousin Morris Carnofsky appeared. The Television Museum in
Beverly Hill (Beverly Dr.
at Little Santa Monica) is a great place to relive childhood moments as
well as research.
Going to the incredible computer library room I pulled up all the
television films available.
After ordering them, I proceeded to viewing cubicle which was mine for a
two hour period.
American Playhouse presents The World of Sholom Alecheim, starring cousin
Morris, Zero Mostel,
Molly Picon, etc. On a hunch, we checked out listings for Louis Armstrong,
who mentions
the Karnofsky family in his biography. Sure enough in 1979 Sachmo special,
during one of
the interview segments Louie talks about Mama Karnofsky teaching him to be
good to people.
He remembered her rocking baby David and all the children singing a lullaby
- which he scat
sang. What a thrill!

Is there a SIG for Odessa (in the Ukraine)? There used to be such a high
concentration of Jews living there, including my maternal grandfather,
Benjamin Kapelevich.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Searching: Yerachmiel (Robert) MINTZ #general

pavlik@mintz.net <pavlik@...>
 

Hi folks-

>from the death certificate and tombstone of my GGrandfather
Yitzhak (Isaac) MINTZ I have recently determined that my GGGrandfather
was named Yerachmiel (Robert) MINTZ.

Yerachmiel is rumored to have had 14 children. I believe that
he arrived in New York City in 1870, with at least part of his
family.

I'm still working through various sources looking for details on
Yerachmiel and his family. But with so many children, at least some
of whom were resident in NY, I'm hoping someone else will be able
to help. Anybody recognize the name?

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Russian Army lists #general

Mitchell J. Block <m.block@...>
 

In researching my grandmother's family (KALINA) & shtetl, (Zambrov, eastern
Poland), I found out that some of the male inhabitants were actually
recruited into the Russian Army before the town was "invaded" by the
Germans. Although I have given up most hope to find that any member of her
family survived the war, I wonder, does anyone know of any list I could
get my hands on relative to this topic? Thank You.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Researching the Motion Picture Library #general

Vicki Karno <vkarno@...>
 

After attend the Hollywood Chai session on researching a person
in the movie industry, I was anxious to give it a try. The Margaret Herrick Library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
is located at LaCienega and Olympic. (333 South La Cienega,
Beverly Hills,Ca. 90211) The Library's holdings include books, periodicals and pamphlets, files of clippings, still photographs, screenplays and special archival research collections- all of
which are related to the motion picture industry and its history.
Requests for information and photos received by mail are handled
by The National Film Information Service at the Academy.

It is open to the public and has an old fashioned card file. I
looked up our relative, stage and screen actor Morris Carnovsky,
filled out a form, and was handed a file containing many original
newspaper clippings and reviews with several different pictures,
letters, and other information.
They copied everything in the file for 25 cents a page. We were
in and out in an hour with the most incredible information. They
have information and books on people connected to every aspect of
the industry.

I also have the same question. When in LA I found my great-grandfather's
(Fishel MEYER) arrival in the US in the book on Russian migrations to the US
in 1884. His wife Rebecca came later with their daughter Esther, since the
next child was born in 1888 in Albany, NY, she had to have come prior to 1888.
I found a Chaya MEYER and ESTHER MEYER in 1887. Now although the only name
that I have for her is Rebecca (Rivka) her name could well have been RIvka
Chaya or she could have changed it out of superstition (to fool the angel of
death as the voyage was dangerous). My other information said that Esther was
born in March1885 (which is consistent with Fishel's arrival in 1884), so she
would have been about 2 and a half in November of 1887. The passenger list
(as produced in the book) had Esther's age of .16 (or about 2 months). This
was the only Esther MEYER in the book. Any suggestions?

We are looking for anyone who has possibly visited Kirovograd and may have
photographs of the town.

This information is for a new publication on Ukraine that will be published by
a well known author in the near future.

If you have any information, it would be very much appreciated if you would
contact me.

Thank you......Marjorie Goldberg

The JRI-Poland SIG mailing list has moved to the new server, and there
was a post to the SIG about it. I have seen no such post to the h-sig,
and, uncharacteristically, no messages today.

So, this is a test to see if our old email address bounces.

Sorry for the clutter in the mailboxes.

Varanno records
August 1, 1998

There are some military records or "muster rolls" for those researching
Vranov. The microfilm numbers are: 0629869 and 0629857 the Varanno
Synogogue numbers are 1794330-31. The military records show the son and
father's name, place of birth and current city of residence.

I learned >from the Mayor of Humenne (Zemplen county) that the records are
kept in Presov. Perhaps the Varanno records are also there. If you write
to the archives in Bratislava, I was told they would route them to the
appropriate local archives. Forms are available at the Mormon Family
History Library. I have a Mendel Roth in my family tree, living in
Tot Yablonka (Jablon today) about 16 miles north of Humenne.

I hope my microfilm numbers are correct, but please check them.

Good luck!
