Genners:

I'm submitting this query on behalf of Marilyn Mindel.

Evan Fishman


My maternal grandfather, Schoilik/Sheilik/Abraham Puk was born about 1888. He lived in Poland/Russia, perhaps in the cities of Rovno, Aleksandria/Alesandraw in Volhynia Gubernia. He had three children >from his first marriage. He remarried after his wife (Rose, Shosha, Raisa) died. In the mid-1930s he traveled to Havana, Cuba with two daughters and a son. The girls settled there, but the father returned to Europe with his son, Efraim Fishel. Then the war set
in, and the girls never heard >from their dad or brother again.

Abraham/Scholik Puk was the son of Moishe (Morris) Puk (later Bernstein). Moishe immigrated to the U.S. in 1906. By December 1909, his wife and six children had arrived and resided with him in Philadelphia, PA. He was a shoemaker in his own shop. The three sons kept the name Bernstein, while the daughters married and carried the names Demp, Finekstein, and Zevin; all raised
their families in Philadelphia.

It appears that Scholik came to Philadelphia when he was 22 years old, departing >from Liverpool on November 2,1910 on the SS Merion, arriving in Philadelphia on November 14, 1910. Family lore has it that he returned to Europe shortly thereafter. "Any idea why?" He was single when he arrived.

Is there any way to find any document (such as a birth certificate) regarding Scholik Puk that would state his name as well as his parents' names, so I can ascertain if he had the same mother as Moishe's six other children.

Thank you.

The JGSWS-Jewish Genealogical Society of Washington State-invites you to a free genealogical program on Monday, 10/7/19, in Bellevue, WA #general

Karen Campbell
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Washington State proudly presents and
invites you to a free program:

"Building a Genealogical Research Plan for DNA Testing"
presented by Dr. Janice Lovelace, Professional Genealogist

Date: Monday, October 7, 2019 (1st Monday of this month, due to Sukkot
holiday the next week)
Location: LDS Factoria Building, 4200 124th Ave SE, Bellevue, WA 98006

* Doors open at 6:30 p.m., for all to enjoy our extensive library of
genealogical resources, including **free** access to the FHC computers and
genealogical websites!
* Free Wi-Fi available. Come early and network with other attendees!
* Presentation starts promptly at 7:15 p.m.
* Free admission and refreshments

**About our program**
Whenever we approach a genealogical question, we need a plan before starting
our research, which can lead to greater success. Janice Lovelace will share
step-by-step instructions on how to build a research plan for DNA testing. She
will present a case study that touches on the points in her presentation: begin
with identifying the focus of your use of DNA testing and creating a research
question and hypothesis. Ask yourself what type of DNA tests will answer your
research question/hypothesis and identify which relatives you should test. This
session will show you how to build a plan, how you might want to answer
potential research questions or hypotheses, how DNA testing ties into your
paper and/or digital family trees and, finally, how to analyze your findings
and where to go >from there. Whether you are just beginning your genealogy
research or have years of experience, you will easily see the many benefits of
creating a research plan.

**About our speaker**
Janice Lovelace, Ph.D., is a genealogical researcher, author and lecturer, with
over thirty years of experience. Dr. Lovelace is a frequent speaker at national
and regional genealogy conferences on health and genetics, ethnic minority
genealogy, and research methodology. She authored the National Genealogical
Society's continuing education course, African American Roots: A Historical
Perspective and is an instructor at the Midwest African American Genealogical
Institute. She is a national board member of the Association of Professional
Genealogists and serves on the Board of the Seattle Genealogical Society. She
belongs to the Ohio Genealogical Society, the Afro-American Historical and

Need help establishing family ties FROST #galicia

Andrea Dechter
 

I've just found a new cousin through Ancestry. Her mother Clara Frost
was born and placed for adoption at the charity hospital on Blackwell's
Island in NYC in 1907. Per Clara's birth certificate, her parents were
Fannie Frost and Samuel. Clara was adopted and raised in Minnesota.

My grandmother's maiden name was Pauline Frost (Pesha Chaja) and
she did have an older sister Fannie. Fannie married Samuel Cohen and
they had a son Leon who was my dad's 1st cousin. Leon was an only
child.

I haven't been able to find this Cohen family in any NYC census. I've
been told that they lived in the lower east side.

The Frost family immigrated >from Kolomea although I haven't been
able to locate these records. Fannie was in NY by/before 1907.
Pauline arrived circa 1911 along with her step-mother Babsha. Pauline
must have first lived in San Francisco (where she married my GF, Zelig
Feuerman (Sigmund Fireman). They moved to NYC as my dad was
born there in 1916.

I am looking for any information about Pauline and/or Fannie i.e.
immigration, info that will link them as sisters, and anything that may
shed more light on Clara's adoption/confirmation of parentage.

Thank you very much in advance.

To all JewishGen researchers:

I think that it is great that we have regions to research: Ukraine, Belarus,
Bessarabia, etc. and we should continue regional research, but we should not
forget how much we are all connected.

I did a Unified Search by "Any Field" and entered Kishinev (main town in
Bessarabia, Ukraine) and searched in ALL countries , and here are the results:

Of course I received many thousands records back >from all Bessarabian
Databases, but I also got almost 500 records >from Ukrainian databases\......

also records >from Belarus, Latvia, Poland and many more.
You may ask what that means? Well, for example a birth record of a person born
in Vilno, but his father was >from Kishinev, and that information is records.

I also did a search for "KOVNO' - a famous town now in Lithuania (Kaunas), and
found in addition of records in Lithuania and Belarus, almost 100 records >from
Bessarabia databases, several hundred in Ukraine databases, and more.

My point is that you should use this new facility - Unified Search and explore
not only your region, but neighboring regions and some distant regions as well.

The idea that Jews lived in a small shteitl and did not move is just a myth
without any basis.

In contrary Jews traveled short and long distance to get jobs, to marry, to study
or sometimes to get a new dress for the High Holidays...

I want to wish all of you a great New Year! I hope you discover more in your
genealogical research, and please do not be disappointed. There are many
people in JewishGen who may help you.

And to do this I wish you health and happiness and peace.

I am trying to determine the origin/basis of a number of pages, apparently
taken >from a book. The heading on the first page is Seznam csl. prislisniku
K.L.Dachau. The material consists of an extensive list of names with
additional information, e.g. Absolon Josef, farar, Lesna u Val Mezirci.
While religion is not given, some of the names indicate that they were
Jewish, others not. The mystery is compounded by the fact that most of
these names do not appear in Dachau records.

I would appreciate any suggestions as to the book >from which this list was

persons who never entered Dachau.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake
 

During World War 1, it was the Russian Army that the Jews of Vasilishki, Belarus
feared as its soldiers made their Great Retreat as the pre-Nazi Germans advanced.
"People went >from one to the other, seeking advice as to how to rescue oneself
because one heard that when the Russians leave, they cause pogroms, rape women,
destroy everything, and set fire to the shtetl. This caused everyone to be
deathly afraid."

"Yom Kippur in the Forest," a chapter >from the Vasilishki section of the Yizkor
book of Shchuchin, Lida District, Vilna and Grodno Gubernii is the story of Jews
fleeing for their lives as the holiest of days approached. It was cloudy with a
light rain as they reached what they hoped was a safe haven and ate the last meal
before the fast on Erev Yom Kippur. The Russians did loot the houses before they
left, but the story had a happy ending. The people were able to return to their
shtetl. "That Sukkoth was truly a time of rejoicing for the Jews of Vasilishok."
