I think the standard Russian word (and maybe also Ukrainian) would
be "parakhod" which looks like "napaxog" in cyrillic handwriting.

This word seems to apply to any steam-driven vessel, >from steamboats --
similar to those used on american rivers in the 1800s -- up to ocean liners.
For example the Titanic is called a "paraxhod" in Russian.

I have a Russian video "Zhestokiy Romans" (A Cruel Romance) which is
set in the 1800s and features voyages on steamboats and duels. It is
all surprisingly evocative of Mark Twain's writings about the american
south before the Civil War.

Russia apparently continued to rely on river transport for passengers
long after the U.S. switched over to railroads and then automobiles
and buses. There probably still are "paraxhods" in use and you could
probably take a tour on one.

town name "Karistishow" #ukraine

Marc D. Machtinger <marc@...>
 

Dear SIG Members:

I have a naturalization record for a family member who came >from Russia
(present day Ukraine). The town of birth is listed as "Karistishow,"
however, I cannot find any such town. Would someone kindly suggest to what
town this might actually refer?

I also have a reference to the town "Chorkas" which is also spelled
"Charkoss(e)." I am assuming this town must be "Cherkassy" on the Dnieper
River. Would anyone suggest otherwise?

Finally, there is reference to a town "Chicos." Can anyone suggest what
town this could possibly be?

I appreciate any assistance. Thanks.

Very truly yours,
Marc D. Machtinger, Buffalo Grove, Illinois

To JewishGen,

I just discovered the Canadian death record for Shaya/Shiel/Yeshia

It is Viewmate - VM8260

Please contact me privately with responses.

I am also searching for any information regarding this family. Thank you in

Montreal, Quebec City, Halifax or Saint John. If they came in

I have no idea what was usual. But I have one instance of a relative who
debarked alone at the Port of New York in 1900 enroute to Montreal (so says
the passenger manifest), and gave an ultimate-destination address that was
then, as it is now, occupied by a large church, and promptly disappeared
from the planet, as far as I have been able to tell. I also don't know what
happened to the wife and large family he left behind in Lomza.

Re: Are these people the same? #general

Stan Goodman <SPAM_FOILER@...>
 

Help. I am caught up in a bit of a confusion. I have several
records for a woman named Sarah Borak. I am not sure all
of the records refer to the same person. In some records a
Sora Ryfka Burak has a father named Byszko Burak, in others
Sora Ryfkas fathers name is Bysk Berkowicz. In some records
Sora Ryfka Buraks mother is named Basia z Joelow, and in others,
she is listed as Bejla Joskowna.

She died in 1927. Her gravestone, lists Sarah Burak as daughter of
Binyamin Ha Cohen. Her death certificate listed Benjamin Burak and
Fannie Miller as her parents.

Questions:

1. Was marriage allowed between first cousins in the 1800s era in Lomza,
Poland?
Yes. But I don't think that is what we have here.

2. Is Byszko Burak and Bysk Berkowicz possibly the same person?
They are. "Berkowicz" in this case is a patronymic, not a surname. Sarah's
grandfather is Berko.

3. Is Basia z Joelow (or Joelowna) the same person as Bejla Joskowna
To me, it looks like there has been some confusion at some point between
Basia/Bejla and Joel/Josko. My bet is that there is one woman here.

4. Is Bysk a yiddish diminuitive for Binyamin?
Evidently.

Re: Pedro and Yocheved BISSINGER. Argentina/Israel #general

Carlos Glikson
 

Jim Bennett asked about
relatives: Pedro and Yocheved BISSINGER. They were born
in the 1940's in Argentina, lived in Israel in the 1970's and then went
elsewhere. U.S., Europe, Latin America??
Jim asked for direct replies but I´m posting this to avoid duplicate efforts
with this phone call: There is a single BISSINGER listing in my 2005
national white pages for Argentina. I gave the lady there a call. Her
father´s name was Jan (Janek), Polish. His birth was in Galitzia, 1922. She
never heard of other BISSINGERs here. Pedro or Yocheved did not ring a bell.

The call did not solve the search for Pedro and Yocheved... unless the name
Jan/ Janek tells Jim something. I am following in private with details to
Jim.
