Website for Lechowitz (AKA Bilohirya) Ukraine #general

Miriam Kirshner
 

For those of you with interest in the shtetl of Lechowitz Ukraine, or nearby towns
like Kremenets and Yampol, take a look at this website:
https://sites.google.com/view/lechowitz. Lechowitz Ukraine now goes by the name of
Belogorye (Russian) or Bilohirya (Ukrainian). This is a completely different town
than the Lechowitz in Belarus, but frequently gets confused with that town. In
fact, vital records >from Lechowitz Ukraine are often lumped into those for
Lechowitz Belarus. Immigrants >from Lechowitz Ukraine often migrated to cities in
the American mid-west, especially Omaha Nebraska, Council Bluffs Iowa, and
St Louis Missouri. Others went to larger cities like Chicago and New
York, or to Palestine.

Alyssa posted that "The 1905 NY census is only visible on Ancestry and I'm not a
paid member of Ancestry, so I can't access it."

Alyssa... the 1905 census is available on familysearch too....when you click on
search, then records, its easiest if you use the map to focus on NY state...then
click on all files...and you'll see the 1905 census...

Origins of Khvat Surname (Cohanic) #rabbinic

Adam Cherson
 

Dear Rabbinical Researchers,

I am investigating a branch of cousins who went by the surname of Khvat
(aka Chwat, Kwatt, etc.)

There are several matzevot dating >from about 1850 to 1929 in the Okopowa
Cemetery in Warsaw showing this as the family surname.

My question is about the origins of this surname.

Could this be an acronym surname or one based on a geographical origin
or what?

Please bear in mind that this is a family of Cohanim so there could be a
rabbinical origin to the name.

Thank in advance for any insights.

Adam Cherson
