Does anyone know if it's possible to access this record?
You can start with the Philadelphia inmate and account locator. There is also a
list of other many options and department contacts if this does not work.

For those of us who are addicted to JewishGen and worry that such
lapses are due to problems at *our* end, a brief announcement at the
top of the JewishGen home page would be useful when there are long outages.

On the family name BLANKETT/BLANKIET/BLANKET #poland #lodz

JNB <jnblank@...>
 

This is my first posting to the Lodz area mailing group.

I am researching the origins of my paternal grandfather Abraham
BLANKETT's family. I have very little information on his family but I
know my gf was born in the town of Medved, near Novgorod, in NW Russia -
i.e. outside of the Pale. I don't know for how long the family had lived
in this area.

Recently I've found some indication that the family may possibly at some
point have moved to this area - or been sent there - >from somewhere in
Poland. One of these indirect indications (far >from proof, of course)
is the fact that several databases (JRI-Polansd, Yad Vashem etc.) show a
big concentration of the family name BLANKET/BLANKIET/BLANKETT etc.(
various spellings) in the area of Lodz, whereas I have so far not been
able to find many occurences of this family name in other parts of
Eastern Europe.

I would be interested to know if someone in this Discussion Group knows
anything about the origin, possible meaning (in Polish/?), occurence
etc. of this family name.
I word the question vaguely on purpose since I doubt I can at this point
of my research hope to find any definitive links with actual BLANKET
families in the Lodz area.

Any help and suggestions much appreciated.
You can answer either privately or - if you think the answer is of a
more general interest - on the list.

WEINSTEIN (VAYNSHTEYN), BATUSHANSKY, NOSIKOVSKY #romania

Eugene Vaynshteyn <vaynshteyn@...>
 

My fathers side of the family comes >from Beltsy (Balti) in northern
Bessarabia. Unfortunately, I know very little about my grandfather Kopel's
family (VAINSTEIN, VAYNSHTEYN, WEINSTEIN), as his parents and sisters did
not survive the war. His full Jewish name was Kopel Yankel, and he had a
first cousin named Yankel Kopel - both named in memory of their common
grandfather. His parents were Moishe and Mariam (Moshe and Miriam). My
grandfather was born in Balti, but his family lived in Yassy (Iasi) in
Romania for some time. In 1940 they returned to Balti in order to stay on
the Soviet side of the border. My father remembers hearing in his childhood
that his paternal grandmother was the granddaughter of the YOISHER REBBE
(meaning of Iasi in Yiddish) and that he had some very distant relatives,
possibly >from that side, named RABINOWITZ. I suspect (based on Itz'chak
Alfasi's book, "Hachassidut") that Rabbi Boruch Rabinowitz might be the
Rebbe he was talking about, but unfortunately cannot trace this further. I
would appreciate any ideas.

My paternal grandmother's family is >from a place called Alexandreni, near
Balti (or within the city limits now). Her name was Dvoira, after her own
great grandmother, and her maiden name was BATUSHANSKY (literally, of
Botosani, misspelled, but I cannot go back far enough to trace my roots to
this village in Romania). Her father's name was Velvel and her mother was
Hayka (Chaya) NOSIKOVSKY, my only great grandparent to survive the war.

Need English to German Translation(s) #germany

Dear Listers,
I would like to contact some sources of military records in Germany to
learn more about my grandfather's brothers, and any other relatives he
may have had >from his home town of Kyritz Ostprignitz, and nearby
Wittstock, both of which are in the state of Brandenburg. Some, if not
all, may have been with him in the army during WWI, but I don't know
which ones, nor whiich were brothers, or which may have been cousins.
Therefore, I'm hoping someone out there can either steer me to some form
letters that may suffice, or else help me put a letter into German
requesting information regarding the relatives of my gf, Louis REHFISCH.
Please reply privately. Thanks!
