Was Interrupted Travel to the US from Poland Common? #galicia

Sheldon Rabin
 

I'm researching my great-grandmother Reisel (Perlmutter) Wiesen, born
1871 in Rozwadow (now Stalowa Wola) Poland. Because there is so little
info available on her, I found myself ranging into databases that I might
not typically access in the hope of finding something.

I found an entry for 1888 in the 1850-1934 Hamburg Passenger Lists for
a Reizel Perlmutter, (female) age 17, born about 1871 in Rozwadow, Galizien.
Reizel was traveling on the ship Lincoln that departed Hamburg on 1 May
1888 destined for New York City with a stop in Grimsby, England.
According to the manifest, the passengers were to connect with
Nordamerika via Liverpool. Reizel was traveling only with her 10-year-old
sister, Feige.

The problem here is that Reisel never visited the US, not in 1888 nor any
other time. There are no Ellis Island entries for any single female named
R. Perlmutter until 1900. And so, I was wondering if it was common for
emigrants to decide mid-trip not to continue on to the States but instead
to halt their voyage, in Reisel's case in England, and to return to their
country of origin at some later time?

We know that Reisel married Zvi Hirsh Wiesen in Rozwadow in the early
1890s and had four children including my grandmother Ettel Sara
Perlmutter Rebensaft born in 1894.

Am I interpreting Reisel's apparent travel itinerary correctly? And was her
apparent change of heart common among emigrants >from Poland and
elsewhere?

Thank you.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake
 

Itsik Trastinetski was one of a group of Jewish activists rounded up
by political police in Poland, all of whom were subjected to torture.
His own treatment was brutal and when his captors saw that he was
physically broken to the point that further torture was superfluous,
they then tortured his closest friends within his sight. He was taken
to the town hospital, still bound in chains, where people >from other
wards hurried to hear what he had to say, even as doctors closed the
windows so he could not be heard in other pavilions. Trastinetski's
sarcastic response was "See, my hands and my feet are bound in
chains, but you cannot close my mouth" and with the call "Long live
freedom!," he gave up his spirit. Such was "Itsik Trastinetski's
Martyrdom," a chapter >from the Yizkor book of Kremenets, Vyshgorodok,
and Pochayiv.

LitvakSIG - new batch of Vilnius household registers #lithuania

Russ Maurer
 

LitvakSIG is pleased to announce that batch 6 of the Vilnius household
registers is now available to qualified donors.

The registers were created between 1919 and 1940 when Wilno (Vilnius)
city and Wilno voivodeship were part of Poland. The registers contain
detailed information about everyone who lived in Wilno at that time,
as well as information about many visitors. They will potentially hold
discoveries for anyone whose family was in that general area, which
today includes parts of Lithuania, Belarus, and northeast Poland. I
urge you to check the free batch previews described below, even if you
don't think your family was ever in Vilnius. There have already been
unexpected discoveries. There are countless mentions of locations
outside the immediate Vilnius area.

As this is a very large project that will go on for years, we are
releasing data in batches of about 5000 lines. Batch 6, 5030 lines,
includes three large apartment buildings located at Zawalna 24 and
Wielka Stefanska 27 and 33. You can find these streets on our
Vilnius interactive street map
(https://www.litvaksig.org/vilnius-map/). To help you determine if
this batch or a previous batch is relevant to your research, you can
review a file containing previews of all six batches to date
(http://tinyurl.com/VHR-previews). The batch preview is a bare-bones
version of the batch spreadsheet containing just the full name and
year of birth (or age) of each person. The previews are presented both
in original order and alphabetically by surname. The previews also
include instructions to qualify to receive the full batch data.

More information about the Vilnius household registers can be found on
the VHR home page,

need advice on upcoming trip to Latvia, Moldova, Belarus, Bessarabia #latvia

Leah Kushner
 

Hi Fellow Latvians

I am new to the group. I need some advice and assistance. I am
working on my genealogy family tree. It turns out all 3 of my
grandparents are >from different parts of Russia. I happen to be going
to Eastern Europe next April and am planning visit the shtetl's of all
my grandparents. I need assistance. I have never been to Russia. Has
anyone gone or knows anyone who has?

I am looking for a guide familiar with Jewish Russia. I will be
going to: (Latvia, Moldova, Belarus, Bessarabia).

I am also looking for resources so I can best uncover my family
story before I arrive.

My paternal grandfather was >from Latvia. His immigration paperwork
indicated he was born in Donneburg and other times it was Donneberg
and another time Dunaberg.

Nathan Kushner (spelled a variety of ways) , my grandfather, was born
in Donnenberg or Donneburg Dunaberg, Dinaburg I believe in Daugavpils
Latvia in 1890-1959. His parents are Morris Kushner 1862-1927 and
Chaya Leah (Ida) Shvei Swacy 1863-1926. There were children: Bertha
1888, Zhakarie 1890, Lena 1893-1970, Anna 1894, Max 1898-1980, Amelia
1903-1989. They immigrated in 1892 and lived in the Bronx. I have
been able to find some of his siblings and their children living in
the United States. He died in Providence Rhode Island. He was a
strong labor leader in the garment industry, was the President of the
New England Chapter with the AFL-CIO ( I have his pin) and I also have
his Hebrew pocket watch and his tallus and his old camera. I
understand >from my dad that there was family living in Russia.

I would like to know more about the shtetl especially during this time
period but also after they left.

How could I found out about family that remained? I would like more in
depth history of the Jews in that area, during the pogroms and what
life was like for the Jews then, during WW2 and even now? What kind I
expect when I arrive, the sentiment of the local community now? What
documentation and resources are available to track my family? Has
anyone visited or know anyone who has? Does anyone have any referrals
for guides to help me in this journey?

Warmly,
Leah Kushner
born in Philadelphia, PA living in California.
