Yes, it's kind of a gutteral soft "G", and sounds more like an
"H". My grandfather spelled his name Genkin when he first came over,
but found apparently found people were pronouncing it "Jenkin". He
soon changed the spelling so people would pronounce it correctly.

TOWN NAME "KIMMIJUK" POLTOFSKY #ukraine

Brentsi
 

Shalom listers,
On the UK naturalisation papers for my paternal grandfather,SIMON BERNSTEIN,
is written; Place of birth: GOROD KIMMIJUK; POLTOFSKY PROVINCE.
With help >from russian friends, I was given to understand that this
birthplace was,
KREMENCHUG; POLTAVA.
After three years of searching for archival material of births and
burials,upon re-reading
the town name, I realise that this is possibly another place altogether.
The parents of Simon were ISRAEL,ZVI BERNSTEIN and his wife CISSIE.
Their son Simon married Annie Lightman (Lihktman) >from Vilna.They raised
their family in Leeds,UK.

Queries; Where is "KIMMIJUK" and who were these BERNSTEIN's.

Brenda Habshush, Sde Boker,Israel.

Fw: Sarah and her grandson Tom-New York/Boston #general

yoni ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

My mother mentions in her autobiography about meeting in the early 1930s in
New York City a long lost great aunt by the name of Sara (nee ABRAMOWITZ).
My mother doesn't remember her married name but writes that Sarah and her
husband "were part of a yiddish speaking communist group who sponsored a
weekly Shalom AleichemYiddish speaking circle together with the son-in-law
of Shalom Aleichem".

Sarah had a daughter who was divorced >from a non-Jewish gentleman and they
had a son named Tom who was around 20 years old in the early 1930s. It seems
that Tom lived with his father in Boston during the school year and visited
his grandmother (and/or mother?) in New York during the summers where and
when he met my mother.

I would be happy to hear if the above scanty details ring a bell with anyone.
Is there any way to find names of the members of the above Shalom Aleichem
club?

Cleaning and Storage - Antique Prayer Shawl #general

Joyce Eastman
 

Does anyone know the proper way to clean and store a very old silk prayer
shawl? This was recently given to me by a family member and belonged to my
grandmother's brother. The original bag for the shawl is long gone, and the
silk is a bit yellowed and shows some soil as well(probably >from many years
of use).

Thanks for any ideas to help me preserve this wonderful gift.

Excellent suggestion, if it would work. Many subscribers to this list, to
include me, have sent corrections to EIDB to no avail. I have tried to get
them to correct one particuar item for about two years. It's as if it the
correction link is to passify us.

If anyone on the list has had success with getting something corrected on EIDB,
please email me your technique privately.

It is always worthwhile checking in Vienna if you have a Galician family and
indeed there is just *one* record I found of a young man who died at the early
age of 30 in Vienna where he is buried [he is alone in the grave]:

BURMIL Judes age 30 died 20.02.1932 buried 22.02.1932 Zentralfriedhof
Gate IV Group 16 C Row 1a Grave 16.

There are no obvious traces of BERMIL in Vienna. By researching in Vienna one
should be able to find out more Judes and his origins and if he might be
related to David's family .

Looking in Yad Vashem nearly all the BURMIL [BORMIL] victims - there are no
listings for BERMIL] come >from Bukovina [Romania]. We remember them here today.


On the ships' arrivals lists in NY, a family arrives in ca 1920 >from Picimei,

I noted also that the name BURMIL is a toponymic, see {search for Burmil}
