Ritz family Dusiat Jewish Cemetary Records #lithuania

Jan Thomsen <jan.thomsen@...>
 

Hi Everyone,

I have been looking for burial records >from the Jewish cemetary in
Dusiat, Lithuania.

But apparently nothing is recorded for Dusiat. On the yizkor book
site I have seen a book on Dusiat, which refers to the Jewish cemetery,
and I have seen some data on the internet >from a family that has
visited the cemetary to find the graves of family members.
But apparently nothing is available on JOWBR >from Dusiat, or on any
other site for that matter.

I am trying to find the burial of Echiel/Yechiel Berkowitch Ritz,
who died in 1882 in Dusiat, according to a Danish police report
filed in connection with one of his sons naturalization as a
Danish citizen. The maiden name of Echiel's wife was Hane
Berkowitch Beman/Berman.

They had at least three sons: Mowscha Leibe Ritz, Markel Itzyk Ritz,
and Sholom Ritz. Mowscha, who is a direct ancestor of my son, died
in Worcester, MA, US in 1918 >from the Spanish flu, while Markel
married Sara Tzira Berkowna, and later settled in Denmark and
became a succesful businessman, who died in in 1960.
Sholom probably emigrated to US, as he was a signee on his
brother's US death certificate.

I would be grateful if anyone could help me with information on
the burial of Echiel & Hane Ritz (most likely in Dusiat), and/or
their ancestors. I presume the "Berkowitch" middlename implies
that they both had fathers called Berko ?

Interested in Biala Podlaska, Miedzyrzec Podlaski, Janow Podlaski and Radzyn? #poland

Dear Readers:

If you're interested in any of the towns like Biala Podlaska, Miedzyrzec
Podlaski, Janow Podlaski and Terespol which are in the same general area
that Radzyn Podlaski is in, you might be interested in helping complete the
second phase of the Radzyn Podlaski PSA Project. After indexing all the
vital records in the Lublin PSA Archives for Radzyn Podlaski, more register
books turned up during an inventory project in a different archives. They
had been misshelved for decades!

We must raise another $331 in order to complete this project and get the
indexes on-line.

It occurred to me to post the surnames for Radzyn to see if researchers
with family in the area would be interested in helping fund this town.
The 35 or so surnames most commonly found in the Radzyn records are:

ABMAN, AJZENBERG, APELOJG, ARONIAK, BUCHALTER, CUKER/ CUKIER, DYAMENT,
EJDELMAN, FRYDMAN, GLIKLICH, GOLDSZTEJN, GOLDWASER/GOLDWASSER, KASZMACHER,
KAWEBLUM, KIMEL, KOPCIAK, KUREK, LEWI, LICHTENSZTEJN, NISENBAUM, PODOLAK,
PONCZEK, ROTSZTEJN, ROZENBAUM, RUBINSZTEJN, SZLAFSZTEJN, SZUCHMACHER,
TENENBAUM, TURKELTAUB/TURKIELTAUB, WAJNAPEL, WINDERBAUM, ZYLBERSZTEJN

If you're interested in making a donation of any size to this town's PSA
project, please contact me and I'll explain further.

Very best wishes,

Vinnitsa State Archives: Advice needed #ukraine

ssroth@...
 

Hi all,
I'm wondering if anyone has had experience obtaining records >from the
Vinnitsa State Archives. I would like to ask for all the records for 2
surnames >from the record sets (for 4 towns) identified by Miriam Weiner on
her website Routes to Roots.
1. Can one contact the Vinnitsa Archives by email in English?
2. Must one try to find the records in person or hire a researcher, or can
an employee of the archives look up and send you the records requested?
3. Is this expensive?
4. Where to begin?

Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me. Please email me privately
if recommending researchers.

Location of Pagol Village? #ukraine

scrybe@...
 

In my grandfather's (Yom Tov >Jacob Steinberg) naturalization papers, it
states that he and my grandmother (Liba Gezelman) were born in Pagol or
Pagol Village. I assume it is near Kyyiv as the family always said that's
where they were from. I have not been able to locate a town called Pagol
anywhere in the former Russian Empire. Has anyone heard of this town or do
they have suggestions about how I might locate it?

Thanks,

With all the new people researching their roots, I see that it is
time to remind all "newbies" that one of the first things they
need to do is to check a particular file out on JewishGen.
Please go to JewishGen "Info Files".
Once there, click on "Topics" and >from there click on "Basics".
Under "Basics" you will see something called
"A Genealogical Fable by Dan Leeson".

It is still one of the best ways to orient new researchers in their
research. And if you are an "oldie" when it comes to researching,
go back and read it also. It will remind you that not all is found
on JewishGen or the internet.
