Dear researchers,

I was responding today on an email and was looking up something on internet, and found a terrific place about Jewish towns and shtetl in Ukraine.  Some of them were part of Bessarabia, like Khotin, Novoselitsa, Akkerman, and many more.

Here is a link: http://myshtetl.org/
Site was created by Jewish Religious community of Zhmerinka.

It is in Russian, but it is easy to translate... just click with right mouse and you will see Translate to English, probably similar with other languages.

It lists shtetl by current Oblast in Ukraine, also there are maps with Jewish population, and statistical information.

All the best,
Yefim Kogan

Dear Shmiel,

 

Ooh.  I would love to know if Gelburd and Gordy show in those censuses.  I do note that I expect at some point Alex Krakovsky will be scanning them in the next year or two.

 

Yours,

Recently I posted a question about Mt. Sharon Cemetery in Philadelphia. Today a truly generous woman visited the grave sites of 8 of my family members resting there, put stones on the headstone, and sent pictures to me. I am so grateful to Dr. Cheryl. This would never have been possible if not for this discussion group.

I have Vol 3 in front of me.
Page 212 mentions a Aryeh Zeev Wolf who lives in jerusalem and is married to Yehudis, daughter of Rabbi Berel 9Yissochor Dov) Knopfler & Chaitsche Margulies
No further details given
Page 754 speaks about a Zeev Wolf Landau, a great-grandson of the famous Rav Yechezkel Landau, the author of the sefer Noda Biyehuda, whilst page 870 discusses R Zeev Wolf Grunfeld living in Bnei Berak. These two seem to have entered the index by virtue of their first name.
As such it appears Vol 3 is not going to assist you in your search.
I hope the other two volumes will.

Sarah,

Have you seen the information on David and his wife on Ancestry in this database:
Canada, Immigrants Approved in Orders in Council, 1929-1960.
It gives a lot of info on his wife (including the name she arrived to Canada under), where she worked in Canada, she went to Cuba to marry David in Nov. 1934,  the fact that David is a clothing merchant, and that they knew each other before she came to Canada, and lots more helpful data.  It seems to be dated April 6, 1936.

Also, found manifest info on David's wife which gives the name of her brother in Canada, and her married sister in Brooklyn, NY.

Who Was Dawid APOThEKER (APOTHEKERIS ) From Kaunas #lithuania

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

While researching my father's in law Dawid APOTHEKER from Galicia who managed to get to Shanghai thanks to the Japanese Consul in 

Kaunas I discovered that there was another Dawid APOTHEKER  who also got a visa to Japan but never got there. Recently I discovered in the Litvak SIG database that he 

was on the voters list in Kaunas and was born in 1909. I have a copy of a telegram he sent from Vilnius  on May 15th,1941 to friends in Kobe, Japan. He signed with his name and

Marjan and Mirylek who were apparently his son and wife. I assume that he was a relative of us who somehow got himself to Lithuania and settled in Kaunas. I would be thankful to any 

one who will help to shed a light on this person.

Re: PLUST family #general

Ida,

You don't say where you lived as a child.  If you lived in the U.S., take a look at this link.  It is the 1930 census index of people named PLUST in the U.S. (several different cities / states.)
It is two pages long:
https://www.familysearch.org/search/record/results?q.surname=plust&q.surname.exact=on&f.collectionId=1810731&count=20&offset=0&m.defaultFacets=on&m.queryRequireDefault=on&m.facetNestCollectionInCategory=on
You can look at the actual census page to see more info on each person, including street address in 1930.

Regards,

Sherri Bobish


Re: What did Jewish children in the Pale of Settlement call their parents? #names

jbonline1111@...
 

My mother and her brothers called their father Pop.  Her mother died when she was ten, so I don't know what she called her. My father was an orphan by age 9 so I have no idea what he called his parents either.  They were first generation Americans whose parents emigrated from the Pale.

My great great grandmother from Kolbuszowa, Galicia was born Gittel Storch.  It's not that far from Gorlice.  We should compare dna - maybe our Storch families are connected.

Anyone recognize my mother's Aunt Tillie as part of your family? or have other suggestions how I might locate her?

Re: Housing Family Trees for FREE #general

Shalom,
I had a long conversation with an Orthodox Rabbi on this subject concerning the Mormons who converted dead Jews to the Mormon belief. The Rabbi explained that the Jewish law (Halacha) states simply, "Once a Jew, always a Jew. A Jew is G-d's Chosen people." I tried to make it difficult, so I asked, "What if the Jew converts?"
The Rabbi emphasized, "It will not help him/her. G-d Has Chosen him/her and he  or she can not backtrack on G-d's Decision. This is the law (Halacha)." To clinch this argument. He pointed out to me, "So even if he/she converts, they can be buried in a Jewish cemetery in full Jewish ceremony when they die. All the best,
Shana Tova and may we all enjoy this coming new Year in very good health.

Her daughter Rebecca Swiderski & Joe Ferry, I don't know of any papers, but both have tree at Ancestry. Helen Ferry died in New Jersey, we both have our DNA at Ancestry &  up at GEDmatch, also daughter has her DNA also up at GEDmatch. Joe only has his DNA on Ancestry Rebecca (research59 ) hasn't been able to get on GEDmatch lately I'm A059333,Helen A890295 research59 A918591
 
Oh I must say I'm all excited, I'm seeing lots of surnames also connected to us.  I tried to call up Judy Bowman in Ancestry search as tree owner & then tried her surnames, unless she has a dfferent user name it looks like she don't fit.   I haven't tried GEDmatch, it'll take some days before I'll get to that, I'll most likely will need to mend when get back from surgery tomorrow.
 
Thank you Angie & all the others, lots to look forewards too !

Karl (Karel) ABELES; his

his grandfather Rubin}.
His father was Israel ABELES.

He [Israel] and his wife Franziska and their 9
children - I know all their

Kralovice. His father, [ie
Wilma's gtgtgrandfather] who spelled his name Rubin
ABELLES was born in 1790.

Israel had a brother Ignaz. Rubin's first wife's
name was Libuse, his
second, Ignaz's mother was Magdalena. I had some of
this info. >from

Then there followed some personal contact info re

also has compilation by Richard ABELES of Phoenix,

Hi Peter,
There is a couple buried in Sdeh Yehoshua Cemetery, Haifa, in two neighboring plots. According to the gravestones inscriptions they didn't have children.
Rozmarin Theresa Shoshana, Wolf's daughter , passed away on Dec. 17, 1976. The cemetery database mentions that she was born in 1905 in Austria. The birth year is based on the age declaration (according to the birth date format 01/01/...).
JewishGen site has a Theresia Feldmann born in Vienna in Dec. 13, 1897 to Wolf Wilmos and Bertha Steiner.
Rozmarin Chaim David, born in Poland to Anschel, passed away on August 12, 1965.
