R' Arieh Leib Parnes of Galicia? #galicia

Michael Waas <panthersfan27@...>
 

Hi,

I am wondering if someone who has access to Meorei Galicia by
Meir Wunder could tell me what his book says about R' Arieh Leib
Parnes? I don't have a page number, unfortunately, nor a volume
number, but a search on Google Books says that his name is
mentioned in there.

I really appreciate any help that you can provide me. This is
cross-posted on the GaliciaSIG and the RavSIG.

Best Regards,

Re: Location of Pagol Village? #ukraine

I received 3 very quick responses to my question about the location of
"Pagol Village", suggesting that the name may actually be Pakulš, as found
in Shtetl Seeker. This fits with the information I already have and the town
still exists in Chernihivs'ka Oblast.

I am very grateful to the respondents as well as to JewishGen for helping me
­ this will make such a difference in my next research steps.

Two of the twenty short films I am currently showing within my virtual
Museum of Family History might be of interest to Ukraine researchers. One
has to do with Novoye Misto (before WWII Nowe Miasto, Poland), and Olyka
(also before 1939 part of Poland), now both in the Ukraine.

The title of the film about Nowe Miasto is "Miasto: A City That Time Forgot,
1913."

In the Olyka film, based on a photo >from 1920, Tomek questions whether the
photo he uses in the Olyka film represents a wedding or funeral, but it
seems to me that there is enough evidence that it is a photo of a wedding.
The films were created by Tomek Wisniewski and are worth seeing. You can
find the link to these films and all the others on the main page I've
created for Tomek at www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/tomek/films.htm .

Enjoy!

Location of Pagol Village #ukraine

Sandi Goldsmith
 

Evelyn Steinberg wanted to know where Pogol is. I'm pretty sure she is
looking for Podol/Podil which is a historic district in Kiev.

This >from Wikipedia:

The Podil or Podilskyi Raion, Podil, Podilskyi Raion) is a historic
neighborhood and an administrative raion (district) in Kiev, the capital of
Ukraine. It is one of the oldest neighborhoods of Kiev, the birthplace of the city's trade, commerce and industry. It still contains many architectural and historical landmarks, and new archeological sites are still being revealed.

The Great Choral Synagogue of Kiev also known as the Podil Synagogue is
still in operation.

they have suggestions about how I might locate it?

What kind of Jews lived in Bila Tserkva? #ukraine

benmaslow@...
 

My family has its roots in the town of Bila Tserkva, about 50 miles
outside of Kiev and less than 20 miles >from the town of Skvare, which
I know to be a large group of Chassidim. I am wondering if anyone
knows were the Jews of Bila Tserkva in the late 1800s and early 1900s
Chassidim? And if so, what type of Chassidim? It makes sense to me
that they might have been Skvare Chassidim given their proximity, or
possibly Chernobler Chassidim as that was a very large group in the
1800s. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you!

Sixty-seven years since Skalat #galicia

Israel P
 

The annual memorial meeting for Skalat will take place Thursday at
five in the afternoon, at the Skalat monument in the Holon cemetery,
near Tel-Aviv.

For those of you abroad this is the second day of Shavuot and many
of you will be saying Yizkor at the same time as our memorial
meeting. If you have Skalat connections, you might want to keep
them in mind at that time.

Hi All,

Can anyone assist in translating a birth record >from 1837 in Checiny

I believe this is the birth record of Josek Cyna, son of Zelman Cyna
and Sura LNU. I would like to confirm this as well as see any other
information in the record - any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also, if anyone else is researching the Cyna (Suna, Cina) family from
Konskie or Radom then please drop me a line.

Thanks in advance,

Paul

Plunge vital records #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

The following Plunge death and divorce records have just been translated
and are in the process of being sent to qualified donors to the Plunge
Vital Records Project.

Plunge deaths 1842, 1844, 1854-1861 - 484 records.
Plunge divorces 1839-1856 - 24 records.

Work will start on May 17 to translate another 1,500 Plunge death
records. After that is completed, no additional funds will be available
to translate more Plunge vital records. Rather than wait until that time
comes, we are asking for contributions now so the remainder of the Plunge
vital records can be translated. To be a qualified donor, a minimum
contribution of $100 is required. This entitles you to receive all of the
Plunge vital records that have been translated as well as all those
translated in the future.

It does not automatically make you a member of LitvakSIG. A contribution
of $36 for annual dues is required for that.

To donate, go to www.litvaksig.org and click on join/contribute. Be sure

and designate your contribution is for Plunge vital records and for
LitvakSIG dues if you decide to also do that. Feel free to use your credit
t card as the site is secure.

of Jews in Romania during the 1860's. Anyone with a historical bent
might find the chapter " Crisis in Romania" of interest.
