Where is/was Lomzhinskoy? #general

JOEL CAESAR <poppyjoel5@...>
 

Dear Genners,
I'verecently begun working on my long-planned family history. Today, I
received a translation of my maternal GF's Russian Army paybook, 1895-1898.
A friend, I retired Russian Orthodox Priest, did the translating. I was
disappointed that the places in the book where City, Town, Village and date
of birth were supposed to be, were left blank. Both my GF's "Province" and
"Region" are identified as (as translated) "Lomzhinskoy." Anyone out there
have some suggestions for the location of this area? Family legend has his
hometown identified as Novgorod or Novogrod. He belonged to a burial
society, in New York City, supposedly comprised of others >from his home
town, with a plot in Old Montifore Cemetary in Queens, NY, the name of which
began with "Charne."
Is Lomzhinskoy another spelling for Lomza Gubernia, home of my maternal GM's
(BURSZTYN)family?
For the record: Private Yutka Goldstein served with the 90th Infantry,
Onezhsky Regiment >from 1895-1898. His pay was 45 kopeks every two months. He
made extra money by doing laundry work, tailoring and handling "rubbish".

Hebrew Gravestone Translations #general

Justin Kirk Houser <jkhouser84@...>
 

Good afternoon, everyone,

I have a question concerning Hebrew gravestone inscriptions. I am the
cemetery project chair for the Clinton County, Pennsylvania, Genealogical
Society, a non-profit organization, and we are currently recording cemetery
inscriptions throughout Clinton County, PA for posterity.

At the moment, we are reading Beth Yehuda Cemetery in Lock Haven, PA, which
dates to the late 1800s and is still in use. Many of the markers are in
Hebrew. We are looking for someone who can help us translate the Hebrew
inscriptions on many of the markers for a reasonable fee. I have digitally
photographed the Hebrew markers and can email or mail them on a CD to
anyone who can help. There are probably about 200-300 such markers. A few
are entirely in Hebrew and some appear to have only a few letters in
Hebrew. Most are somewhere between this range.

I look forward to any direction anyone can provide in this regard.

your own are at http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/tombstones.html .

Re: Los Angeles death records #general

Sharon R. Korn <s.r.korn@...>
 

Allan,

Here is a web site for LA county vital records, including death
certificates.

http://www.lavote.net/RECORDER/BDM_Records.cfm

I could not find anything for the city of LA, but maybe I missed something.
The way I find sites for any state or local agency is to go to
www.firstgov.gov/ ? and follow the links.

Good luck. Thanks to your past help, I added a generation to my family
tree.

Has Any Vital Records of the Town Bresc/Breszc-Poland Been Located Or Indexed Yet? #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello All

I am curious to find out if there are any vital records for the
town/village Of Bresc/Breszc-Poland. I am hoping to find information on
my maternal grandfathers family(Fajkes/Faikes), because he was born
there and most likey so were his other siblings. I have yet to find any
such records on his family.

Do any records exist for that town or town that was close to it. I have
looked at all the other databases many times and I have never come up
with anything. If anyone knows how to help or give me tips please let
me know.

JUDASHKO family in Warsaw (Warszawa) #general

Julie
 

I am seeking information on my maternal grandfather's family,
Judashko, in Warsaw.

My grandfather Kopel Aaron JUDASHKO, emigrated to the U.S. with my
grandmother, Jean (Janina ROTHSTEIN), in the early 1920s. His
mother's name was Rivka and his father (my great-grandfather) was
either Chaskel or Rachmil. We know that the family was in the
restaurant business, and the restaurant or a family home may have
been at Nalewski 49, which is inside the ghetto. I know that that
location was bombed at some point.

My grandfather was among 8 siblings; the only one we know of (aside
from him) who survived the war was Yakov (Jack). Kopel Aaron was born
in 1892.

Since Judashko (or Yudasczko) is a somewhat unique name, we believe
that anyone with that name will be related to us in some way.

I would be most appreciative of any information that anyone might
have about the family. My grandfather said that some of his siblings
were last seen fighting in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

Thank you

Dear SIG members,
If you know either Graham LEVY, a solicitor or barrister, or his brother
Roger LEVY, a dentist, both in the UK, (mother's maiden name QUASTEL),
please contact me privately. They are cousins related to my maternal
TOBIAS/ROZANSKY/MIRANSKY/BILINSKY family.

Is there a UK national list for either profession (if one does not know the
city where the person is located)? Thank you for your time.

Best Regards,

BERDICHEVSKY/BERDICZEWSKI from Kirovograd or Odessa, Ukraine #general

WAlmeleh@...
 

I am inquiring for a friend without a computer, whose great-grandfather was
Isaac BERDICHEVSKY, a cantor in Kirovograd or Odessa, who died in the early
1900s.

Isaac had a son, Morris Berdichevsky, who was a musician who studied at and
may have taught at the Odessa Conservatory of Music.

In addition, Isaac had two unmarried daughters, both doctors, who served in
the Russian army during World War I and then ran a clinic in Znamenka/
Znamyanka or Kiev, where they also hid Jews during the civil war of 1918-1920s.
The first names of these women are not known.The family was last heard >from in
the mid-1920s.

Note that no connection to the writer, Berdichevsky, has been found, and I
am not interested in information on him.

Any information on Isaac, Morris, and the two daughters or ways of learning
about them will be appreciated.
