Help Locating My Shakhnovich/Shacknovitz Family #belarus

Stanley and Shelda Sandler
 

I suspect I am searching for a needle in a haystack. I am searching for
possible descendants of my father's maternal family: the
SHACHNOVICH/SHACHNOVITZ family. They were >from Mogilev gubernia, Russia.
Today that area is Belarus.

My paternal grandmother's name was SCHIFRA [nee Shakhnovitz, or a variant
spelling] Bachin. She had a sister named HINDA who married a Budnitzky,
later Americanized to Budman. According to oral history, there was also a
brother named YISHIYA. Yishiya may have served in the military. He also
may have been married and had a daughter (name unknown). Letters >from
Russia abruptly stopped sometime during World War II. My grandmother was
born in the town of Chausy in Mogilev gubernia. It is possible that her
brother and sister were born in the same town; however, that is only a guess
on my part. Their father was YITZHAK SHACHNOVITZ. Their mother's name may
have been RASHA. Yitzhak's father name was MEIR. Unfortunately, that is
all I know about the family. Schifra and Hinda married in Russia, came to
America, and Americanized their names to SOPHIA and ANNA. Yishiya never
left Russia. There is no information about the fate of his daughter and
possible other children.

With so little information, does anyone have any suggestions how I might
search for them in the event there were some survivors who may have come to
the United States?

Thank you for any help you can suggest.

Philly2009 - Banquet Announcement #belarus

bounce-1852467-772948@...
 

We are delighted to announce that the entertainment for the Philly2009
Banquet will be Yisrael Campbell -- widely regarded as a premiere
standup comedian in Israel -- he's an original and erudite comedian
who has lived in Jerusalem and now lives in New York City. However,
the journey that led Yisrael to The Holy Land began a long time ago
in a place far, far away: he actually was born "Christopher Campbell,"
raised Catholic, and grew up in Philadelphia. For more about Yisrael,
see his website at www.yisraelcampbell.com or check under "program" at
www.philly2009.org

Yisrael will certainly entertain us ---laughing will be a wonderful
way to end the very hectic conference week. We are lucky that he has
agreed to be with us. This is a banquet you will not want to miss!
It will take place on Thursday, August 6.

If you have already registered, and want to add 1 or more banquet
tickets to your registration, please go to the conference website,
www.philly2009.org and click on "Registration Update." You will need
the login and password you received when you registered. Once you are
logged in, click on "optional program" at the left.... you will then
see all the possible optional programs and can select those you want.
You may bring a guest who is not registered for the conference to the
banquet.

If you have not registered, please do so now and sign up for optional
programs while there is still space. You may check on-site to see if
any tickets are still available for different optional programs ( but
you may not be able to obtain what you want if they are all gone).

See you there!

Father: Carl, Mother: Rebecca, children Pauline, Maurice (who died young),
and Fay. Only record so far shows them living in Wabasha MN in 1920. They
apparently lived in the greater New York area before and after that.

Thanks,

Please help me in finding a Petition for Naturalization for my great

and I can read that it was submitted in the US District Court in
Washington, DC, in 1934. It is numbered 10766.


Contact the court and ask them about their records. They could
likely be with the court themselves even dating back to 1934.

I am sure you can find the court on the Internet. Call them or write
them. With the number and date it should be easy but it might require
someone to go to the court to get a copy for you.

Re: Medical hold NYC #general

Anyone know what L.P.C. means..

"Likely to become a public charge. " This not necessarily a medical
issue. It means that the person did not seem to have a means of making a
financial living able to sustain themselves. Could have been medical due to
something as simple a limp.
