Translation Guides #poland

Stephen Krefman <krefman@...>
 

Can someone direct me to a guide on the net with translation chart for
Russian months and numbers as well as other terms commonly found in vital
records?

I've been away >from looking at these kinds of records for 10 years and now
can't locate the comprehensive vocabulary list I once had.

Thanks

Re: Fake email linked to genealogy research #general

Harvey Kaplan <harvey@...>
 

Further to my email re "Fake email linked to genealogy research", I should point out that, >from my perspective, the enquiries are not"fake". It is the business practices which I am wary of. Four researchers have made approaches in the last week about my Gradman family. What I am wary of is that one of them wants 10% of beneficiaries' share of an unclaimed inheritance in exchange for pointing them in the right direction, whereas I reckon that these beneficiaries can claim directly online in England through the government website:

I Need a Couple of Volunteers #galicia

Eden Joachim <esjoachim@...>
 

Would a couple of you who are planning to attend the Gesher Galicia luncheon
at the conference please volunteer to check tickets and assist in directing
luncheon attendees to correct location?

This should only take about 15 minutes prior to the actual luncheon, so you
won't miss anything, and you will be in that area anyway.

Please contact me directly, off list.

Thanks,

Re: Wounded Jewish Soldiers in the German Army in WWI #gdansk #germany #poland #danzig

Dear Tamar,

I recall seeing (several times) the surname CZARLINSKI while examining the
Danzig microfilm scans in preparation for indexing. You will be able to
search comprehensively for these records when the indexing is complete.
The more volunteers we have to do the indexing, the more quickly this will
happen.

On the subject of given names, I wonder whether we could deduce anything
about the geographic origins of Danzigers by comparing their given name
distribution with Prof. Esterson's given names databases. Perhaps, it would
also be interesting to correlate the changes in Danzig given names over time
with the known immigration patterns (e.g., the influx of Eastern European
Jews after the First World War).

Best regards,

My Grandmother's brother, Tzally BECKER, served in the German army during
WW1. He was wounded but did not die during the war.
He did die around 1920 as a result of a bullet that wandered in his
body >from the war. He probably died in the vicinity of Berlin.
I have no other information on him other than mentioned here:
He was born about 1897 in Tuchola (Tuchel) to Gustav and Rachel-Rosa BECKER.
He was married (probably to to Selma CZARLINSKI-ZYDOWER (born 1898 in
Danzig)) and lived in Berlin environs after returning >from the war.

I don't have a "German" name for him. I know that Tzally is a nickname
for "Bezalel" or "Shaul".
I haven't found any additional "factual" information.
Any ideas how and where to look for additional information ?
Any remarks as to "German" names that went with "Tzally" ?

Any clues will be welcomed.

Bella FONST[E]IN, Rebeka nee FONST[E]IN, Australia (Melbourne/Sydney) #general

arnonh <arnonh@...>
 

Hello, Dear Colleagues!

Another mystery bugs me during the last years, and it might be a good point
to trying and solve it...

My great-aunt, Bella HERSHKOVITZ (b. ~1875, Galatz, Romania, d. in Melbourne
Victoria, Australia), immigrated to Israel with her parents in 1882, settled in
Zikhron Yaaqov. After her marriage to Maurice FONSTEIN, they lived in Egypt
and/or France.

Bella moved to Australia after her husband died (in France), I don't know
when it was. She died probably in Melbourne, but we don't know when...

Bella and Maurice's eldest daughter, Rebeka (Becky, b. 1898), married Ruben,
marriage surname unknown...
Rebeka and Ruben lived in Melbourne or in Sydney NSW, Australia. Rebeka died
probably in the 1980s.

Three other children to Bella and Maurice were: Leon (grandson of whom I was
able to contact, but he knows nothing more about his grandfather's
siblings), Jules and Jill.

Right now, I'm focusing on Bella and Rebeka, so my questions are:
1. How can I obtain a death record and/or a grave-photo of Bella?
2. How can I find descendants of Rebeka, although I only have her nee name
and husband name?

Yours Sincerely,
Arnon Hershkovitz, Israel

Thanks for any response.

No, they lived in Minsk province on the outskirts of Baranovitch. And they

Dear Steve,

Have you checked under the far more common spelling Soloveitchik?
Perhaps your ancestor was a member of that famous scholarly family
-- whose background should be easy to access. You might start by
googling the name of Rabbi Joseph Ber (or Yosef Dov) Soloveitchik of
blessed memory.
