Re: Tombstones’ pictures

My understanding is that it is illegal to take photos in Argentinian Jewish Cemeteries.  

I've been trying for years to get photos of family member headstones in Entre Rios.


Re: Rules & Guidelins - please comment

Avraham,

Since you asked us to comment, I'm commenting. I gather this will eventually replace the old EML? For now, does this mean we'll get both? I get the old EML as a daily digest, so I set this up the same. I'll see how it comes on.

Also, since a comment was made about the Facebook group, I'd like to say something about that. I LOVE FB groups! Now that I'm retired, most of what I use FB for groups. And family (close and extended DNA /family tree cousins). And I would use the GJ FB group in a heartbeat.

However, after making one post in the JG group, and a friend of mine who is NOT in the group commented to me about my post, I realized the group is public. As long as it remains public, where anyone can see our posts, I won't use it again. If it were to be changed to at least Closed, I'd use it in a heartbeat.

there is not enough information provided by "requests to join" - all we get is an email address.  That is opening us up to spam.

I think there needs to be more information - name and some questions to answer ie what we do with the jewish genealogy portal.

Name confusion in genealogy search #belarus

June Genis
 

I recently discovered a strong genetic connection to a family named
Yarkoni based in both Israel and Portugal. The connection appears to
be through a Lena Okun who married a David Griner/Geener. They met at
a Zionist conference in Minsk in 1902. The Geeners changed their name
to Yarkoni when they emigrated to Palestine before WW II. According to
records >from my grandfather Simon Okun his parents were named Abraham
Okun and Lina Susman. I think Lena Okun might be named after Lina
but there is conflicting information in the Yarkoni records.

According to the Yakoni records Lena's parents where Itzhak Avraham
Okun and Leah Okun. My understanding is that Leah and Lena are
essentially the same name with Leah being Hebrew and Lena Russian. So
how could Abraham and Leah have named their daughter Lena without
violating traditional Jewish naming conventions? Their records also
indicate that Lena had a brother named Simon which is the name I have
always known my grandfather by. However the arrival record for
Simon's wife Rebecca who entered through Montreal says that she is on
the way to meet her husband Solomon in St Albans, VT. My aunt
Enta/Anne Okun was born in VT in 1906.

Unfortunately I don't have birth or death dates for anyone besides
Simon who claimed to have been born in Poltava, Ukraine in 1873. The
rest of the Okuns I have found including Lena, hail >from Rogachev,
Belarus. David Griner was apparently >from Bobruisk and engaged in the
Textile trade. The Yarkonis became farmers in Palestine/Israel. A
brother of Lena's, who I believe was named Yaacov, apparently went
with them.

I would appreciate receiving any information that might help me
confirm how Lena Okun is related to me or pointers to other possible
sources of information I believe that I have already made an
exhaustive search of the records on Ancestry.com, Jewishgen.org and
rtrfoundation.org. Apparently there are few surviving records for
Rogachev.

Avrami,  how about writing a message into another language?  Spanish, Hebrew, Russian, etc.  It is not clear if this is OK to do,  but on Facebook people can do that and use google translate if needed.


Looking for an alternate source for marriages in Stanislawow 1877-1888 #galicia

Steve Jaron
 

Hello Fellow Galitzianers!

So I think I have exhausted my options looking for my 2nd great
grandparents' marriage record in Stanislawow. I found the date of
their marriage in the index that is available through the Gesher
Galicia website which of course is in the range mentioned above which
is not available in any of the regular places.

I have already hired a researcher but he did not find anything as far
as a marriage records goes (I may try again though).

Has anyone had any luck acquiring some form of marriage record in
Stanislawow for this time period and how or where have you done so?

Thanks in advance for any advice and possibly see you in Cleveland!
