Dear Joel,

I have a Chaja Rajzla Bork married to my great-uncle Fiszel Lesz. Both of
them were >from Lodz. They married March of 1939. Chaja Rajzla was born
about 1903. Her father and mother were Eliasz Bork and Mariem nee Glikman.
Eliasz had a shop in Lodz that made wooden findings, i.e. railings and
banisters.

The names are not exactly what you mentioned but because of the name Bork
and a few children with the name Raizel I thought this might be your family
too.

Hope that this helps.

Hi

I am looking for information on my ancestors who lived in or near Lodz.

Shmuel Leib BOREK/BORUCH/BORG (b. 1830-40?, m. "Golda") had children
Mendel, Shimon, Beresh, Chanuch and Moshe Abbe (also spelled Moszek
Abe).

The eldest son Mendel had three children: Shlomo, Yosef and Chaskel.

The second son Shimon (b. 1860-70?) married Malka WALSHTEIN (sister of
Nacha BLUM nee WALSHTEIN). It appears that they might have lived in
Poddebice. They had children Rachel Laia, Moshe Alter, Chaskel Mayer,
Hinda, Freidl, Gittel, Reyzl and Chava.

Youngest son Moshe Abbe (b. 1865-70?) married Chaia Ruchla ZEMLER in
1888 in Glowno. (Chaia Ruchla was the daughter of Moshe and Rachel
ZEMLER). The couple lived in Glowno. They gave birth to: Yitzhak
(Icek), Fajge Frandla, Yochevit, Chaskel (Yecheskel), Reyzl, Gitl and
Rivke.

If anybody has information about this family, please get in touch.

Fraenkel Marriage Contract Book - Original Images #france

LawFrank@...
 

The marriage contract of my great-great-great-great grandparents
Lippman Elias and Rachel Alexander (>from 1771) is contained on page 52
of the Fraenkel book of 18th century Alsatian Jewish marriage
contracts. It's one of the longer, more detailed ones in the book, not
simply an abstract. It would mean a lot to me and my family to be able
to get a scanned copy of the original image of the marriage contract
(i.e., in Hebrew characters) rather than simply the the printed
translation. Does anyone know where the original contracts -- or any
scanned copies -- might reside and how one might go about getting a
scanned image?
Thank you.

Jewish Agricultural Colonies in the Ukraine #ukraine

Jewish Agricultural Colonies in the Ukraine

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Colonies_of_Ukraine/

Considerable material has been added to the site over the last year. With
the growing accessibility of Russian, Belorussian and Ukrainian archives
previously undiscovered material comes to light >from time to time.
Descendants of colonists, living in the former Soviet Union are extracting
material and developing their own sites. Whilst most of these are in
Russian, on-line translating tools help to make such material available.

Researcher: Chaim Freedman chaimjan@zahv.net.il

Website manager: Max Heffler

1. Two Russian books which contain extremely valuable information about the
Ekaterinoslav colonies:

L. Uleinikov [Binshtok], Jewish Agricultural Colonies in Ekaterinoslav
Province in 1890, St Petersburg, 1891;

I. Kankrin, Jewish Agricultural Colonies of Aleksandrov Uyezd Ekaterinoslav
Province, Ekaterinoslav, 1893.

The books are the result of a very detailed census of the colonies made by
Uleinikov in 1890 and Kankrin in 1893. Each book has an introduction with a
general overview and statistics. The authors are quite biased - Uleinikov is
a supporter of Jewish agricultural colonies and Kankrin is a severe critic.
The most valuable feature of these books is the detailed census of the
colonists' households. The books have also a brief overview of each colony
with summary of history and facilities. Kankrin's book has detailed
house/street handwritten plans of the ten colonies he studied, including
sketches of the types of buildings.

Uleinikov has complete lists of heads of all families (surname, name and
patronymic) in 17 colonies of Ekaterinoslav Province, Aleksandovsk and
Mariupol Uyezds, with detailed record of family composition, military
service, type of house, agricultural implements, livestock, land and its
subdivision within family and notes about profession etc.

Kankrin studied in a similar fashion 10 colonies in Aleksandrovsk Uyezd and
has even more information about colonists' families. He was obsessed with
the idea that colonists in reality remained artisans and not worked much as
agriculturalists.

Partial translations are available.

An example is shown for the Komisaruk family of Grafskoy.

"Life on the Jewish Agricultural colonies – success or failure"

Opinions on the validity of the conclusions of the authors.

2. Holocaust

Interview of Ukrainian residents of former Jewish colony Novozaltopol by
Father Patrick Desbois; a horrifying account which demonstrates who actually
carried out the massacre of nearly 800 Jews

3. Photographs >from the St. Petersburg Film archive and World ORT
Photographic archive taken of many colonies in 1904 and 1922 showing public
buildings such as schools, synagogues, municipal offices, and farmhouses.

4. "Nayzlatopler Rayon" [Novozlatopol Region] an account of the Sovietized
colonies after the Revolution and Civil War.

"Destruction of Jewish Tradition under the Soviet Administration" [in
process]

An article assessing the affect of Sovietization on the destruction of
Jewish cultural and religious life with particular reference to the role of
the Yevsekzia.

5. Revision lists >from colonies Zelenopole and Mezhirech, 1850 and 1858.

Original Russian lists with some translations.

6. Memoirs of Grafskoy 1907-1921 by the son of a rabbi of the colony include
description of life on the colony and the reaction to the pogroms during the
Russian Civil War which took place after the Revolution.

7. Prenumeranten Lists >from two books published in 1911 which include many
residents of the colonies.

8. Links – a new page with links to useful sites.

9. Yakov Pasik's Russian site http://www.evkol.nm.ru/js_ukraine_en.htm is
updated >from time to time. The site includes material in both English and
Russian together with photographs and maps.

Thanks go to those who extracted, translated and contributed to the
acquisition of this material.

Volunteers are sought for further translations.

Shalom,

As you will see by the list of new and updated projects appearing below, the
Yizkor Book project has seen a continued frenzy of activity during June. I'm

are geared to allow those interested in seeing that translations be made
available, to allow tax deductible contributions to cover the costs of
professional translators for these books. Please take a minute to look at
the list of books appearing at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
Needless to say, any donation would be very much appreciated.

Finally, I'm pleased to let you know for those of you who are going to the
IAJGS Conference (unfortunately, I am not) that Jan Meisels Allen has kindly
agreed to facilitate the Birds of A Feather (BOF) meeting on Yizkor Books
Wednesday July 14 8:15AM-9:30 AM. The meeting will be of interest to anyone
concerned with Yizkor (memorial) books-translators, translation coordinators,
those wanting information about arranging a translation project and those
who want to know more about the books in general.

Wishing you all the best,

Szolyva (Svalyava) birth record 1926 #ukraine

Israel P
 

We have a reference to a family that registered for aliyah in 1944,
consisting of Felix Pickholz (b. Krasowka), wife Rosa (b. Tarnopol)
and children Mila and Eszter (b. 1926).

In 1944, they were in Szolyva and the children had been born there.

I am trying to ID the parents of Rosa, whom I assume is the Pickholz.

Does anyone know how I might find the 1926 birth record and is it likely
to show the mother's parents' names?

http://www.rtrfoundation.org shows birth records for 1876-1896 in
Uzhgorod.

Szolyva was in Hungary at some point, but is now known as Svalyava in
Ukraine. It is in the vicinity of Uzhgorod.

flagged at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html to make it
easy to find them.

Note that some of these some of our 40 or so Translation Fund Projects which
are geared to allow those interested in seeing that translations be made
available, to allow tax deductible contributions to cover the costs of
professional translators for these books. Please take a minute to look at
the list of books appearing at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
Needless to say, any donation would be very much appreciated.

Finally, I'm pleased to let you know for those of you who are going to the
IAJGS Conference (unfortunately, I am not) that Jan Meisels Allen has kindly
agreed to facilitate the Birds of A Feather (BOF) meeting on Yizkor Books
Wednesday July 14 8:15AM-9:30 AM. The meeting will be of interest to anyone
concerned with Yizkor (memorial) books-translators, translation coordinators,
those wanting information about arranging a translation project and those
who want to know more about the books in general.

Wishing you all the best,
Lance Ackerfeld

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Szolyva (Svalyava) birth record 1926 #ukraine

Israel P
 

We have a reference to a family that registered for aliyah in 1944,
consisting of Felix Pickholz (b. Krasowka), wife Rosa (b. Tarnopol)
and children Mila and Eszter (b. 1926).

In 1944, they were in Szolyva and the children had been born there.

I am trying to ID the parents of Rosa, whom I assume is the Pickholz.

Does anyone know how I might find the 1926 birth record and is it likely
to show the mother's parents' names?

http://www.rtrfoundation.org shows birth records for 1876-1896 in
Uzhgorod.

Szolyva was in Hungary at some point, but is now known as Svalyava in
Ukraine. It is in the vicinity of Uzhgorod.

Thank you #ukraine

Dear All,

I am overwhelmed and awed by the outpouring of aid offered by many
members of the JewishGen community. I asked for your help in
translating English into Ukrainian and Polish into English. But, I
never expected so many to come forward. "Thank you?" seems hardly
enough. My gratitude and that of my family knows no bounds.

A special thank you goes to Leonid K. for his expertise, generosity
and incredibly prompt translation of my letter to an unknown cousin in
Kiev who's mother, brother and sister were massacred at Babi Yar in
the Shoah.

I can't thank you enough,
Gail
