Re: Movement from Europe to Ukraine in Mid-1800's #general

Marilyn Siegel writes that her grandfather came >from near Kiev, Russia, but
his birthplace was listed in the census as Austria. My grandfather also
came >from near Kiev, >from a town which is now in Ukraine (Kammenny Brod),
but his birthplace was also listed as Austria in the census. It turned out
the census taker misunderstood, as my grandfather must have said he was born
in Ostria. That is an alternate name for Ostrog, also known as Ostra or
Ostroh, which has a long history of Jewish population. Just recently my
cousin Allan Dolgow, who is a member of this group, contracted with a
researcher who found our grandfather and his family listed in the census
records of Ostrog. Marilyn should try looking for her family in that city.

Re: London names: HOLRIE, ABRAHAM, BRAHAM, POULTON/POULTOW, #general

Harry Dodsworth <af877@...>
 

I believe the correct name for the street with the synagogue is
Sandy's Row; however Sandys Row is widely used. It is now a quaint
historic street; 100 years ago it was regarded as squalid.

John Poulton is recorded as POULTON on the GRO marriage index.
It was not unusual for couples to give the same address on marriage
certificates; I wouldn't draw any conclusion >from this.

The family is certainly confusing. On the 1881 census, Harris Holrie
is listed as Deaf and Dumb. His wife was recorded as Eva.
On the 1891 census there is no record of a handicap for Harris but
a daughter Caroline (33) is listed as Deaf and Dumb. Harris's wife
is listed as Hannah.

Harris Holrie died in the December quarter of 1903 (GRO Index).

If Hyman (grandson, 1881 census or son, 1891 census) was born
in Warsaw in 1878 and moved to England with the whole family,
it would appear they moved to England between 1878 and 1881.

London names HOLRIE, ABRAHAM, BRAHAM #general

Stein Lewis
 

The Jewish East End Celebration Society, which can be found at
www.jeecs.org.uk, lists Sandy Row Synagogue as one of the remaining
synagogues in the East End. While a number of synagogues have become
mosques, Sandys Row is not one of them.
My wife's maternal grandparents were married there and her paternal
ggf had a pub around the corner at 17 Artillery Street (the address
no longer exists). Two of her aunts were married to the sons of the
minister of Sandys Row Synagogue, Rev. Bronkhurst.

Straight from Thailand: new website for eastern Galician town -- MOD: PLease substitute for prior message. #galicia

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

In late May, on a visit to Chernivtsi, Ukraine, I was called out of a meeting
with the words, Someone >from the U.N. wants to speak with you.

Wondering what I had done to disturb world peace, I went to the lobby,
where I met Doug Hykle. Born in western Canada, Doug has roots in Tluste (now
Tovste, Ukraine, 48=B051' 25=B044', about 50 miles south of Ternopil, in what
was eastern Galicia) and has been employed for many years by the United
Nations in Bangkok, Thailand. Recently he came full circle, when he bought
himself a little fixer-upper (in Tovste) a house that has been in his family for
200 years. Thanks to a remarkable coincidence, he learned >from a hotel tour
guide of my interest in the village as my husband's grandfather was born
there. He came looking for me.

Doug, whose family is not Jewish, has been researching the history of
Tovste for several years and is about to launch a website for the town. He
has studied in depth the town Jewish history and sites, which will be
prominently featured on the site, and is familiar with archival sources for
the region. Back in May, Doug was interested to hear about the Jewish
genealogy conference in New York and picked up the pace of work on his
website, in case he could manage to join us and introduce the site here. And
he will: Doug wrote last night that he just bought a ticket and is about
begin his 8,500-mile flight to New York.

Susana Leistner Bloch, coordinator of the Suchostaw Region Research Group,
has graciously invited Doug to give a brief presentation about his research
at the SRRG meeting -- Wednesday, Aug. 16, 3:15 to 4:30 p.m. in the Herald
Room (seventh floor).

Members of the SRRG are researching towns in the Austrian administrative
districts of Borszczow, Buczacz, Czortkow, Husiatyn, Skala, Skalat, Tarnopol,
Trembowla, Zaleszczyki, and Zbaraz.

Some of the shtetlach included are Budzanow (Budanov), Chorostkow
(Khorostkov), Grzymalow (Grimaylov), Kopyczynce (Kopychintsy), Jablonow
(Yablonov), Jagielnica (Yahil'nytsya), Jazlowiec (Pomortsy), Jezerziany

are in parentheses.)

Dear All,

While Marcia Kaplan, the Galicia list moderator, is attending the conference,
I will continue to moderate the list as time permits due to my family
responsibilities. I am about to become the grandmother of twins any day!

Please do your best to limit your messages to research and families in
Galicia.

I hope that all going to the conference will have a wonderful and productive
time in New York. Pamela Weisberger and Eden Joachim have planned exciting
programs for the Galicia luncheon and SIG meeting.

Don't forget to wear your Galicia tee shirt on Monday Aug 14 to the luncheon
and SIG meeting - a sea of blue shirts will be most impressive! Tee shirts
will be available at the luncheon and SIG meeting.

Leon Gold, Membership Chair, and Sylvia Gordon, Treasurer, will be on hand to
accept new and returning members.

Have a great time! I'll miss seeing you this year!

Warm regards to all,

Shelley

Dear Moderator: I am sorry to have caused the staff any time or problem
in regard to my email re Mile End/Tower Hamlet searchers. As sometimes happens with the
selective nature of 82-year-old-eyes I had not read the Moderator notice attached to the
email, warning of the consequence of incorrect subject matter and doodads at the bottom
which should be erased. (I still don't know what the "doodads at the bottom of the email
page" are.) But I think I get the gist of your request and it certainly is reasonable
considering the volume of emails you must receive. I will try to read more comprehensively in
the future. And I do appreciate the service that JCR-UK provides to all of us hungry amateur
genealogists out here in cyberspace.

=2E...Has there ever been -or is there currently -- any organized group =
of "searchers" in the JCR-UK that are descendants of the Mile End/Tower Hamlets? My father
was born there together with his 5 brothers and at least 1 sister,and my grandfather
lived there with two minor children after my grandmother died, according to the census of
1901. But to date I have no information other than the brief information in the 1871 and
1901 censuses. I know there were many many relatives who left for other areas and it
would seem reasonable that they would have information to fill in the terrible gaps in my
family history. I know that 4 of the brothers and 1 sister all migrated to Canada and the
United States early in the 1900's. I also have family history in Gravesend, Kent that goes
back to the late 1700's. And possibly there are still two remaining Eversfields still living in
Gravesend. I have now reached my 80's and am becoming increasing frustrated by my
inability to complete my family history for my great great grandchidren.
