ViewMate VM7678 Memorial Obelisk in Kuniv, Ukraine #ukraine

Barryzwick@...
 

This past September, 2005, I visited my mother shtetl of Kuniv in
Volhynia, Ukraine, not far >from the much better-known town of Ostrog.
Before World War II, about 2,000 Jews lived in Kuniv, its Ukrainian name.
In Russian, it Kunev, pronounced KOON-yev. No Jews live there today, and
the present inhabitants know nothing of the community fate. Can anyone
translate this hand-carved monument in Russian, which may offer a clue?
It ViewMate file VM7678.
To view: http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html

Please send responses to me at barryzwick@..., not to JewishGen. The
photo will remain at ViewMate for only seven days, but I will be happy
to send it to anyone for as long as anyone is interested.

Thanks so much.

A quick google search for Tivrov turned up a site for
the Avraham Harman Institute which harbors the
testimony of a Zunya Schneider, formerly of Tivrov.
His father was a tailor. Zunya attended a heder and
a Ukrainian school. When he was 14 years old was
apprenticed to blacksmith. According to the rest of
the abstract of Zunya's accouont, there is mention of
the synagogue, Jewish festivals, the activities of
the village's young Jews and a descriptpion of the
village's wartime conditions.

+TIvrov&hl=en&gl=us&ct=clnk&cd=8

The above site says that to get the full document one
has to have it mailed to one's email address, but
when I clicked on the appropriate button, just out of
curiosity,I got an error message. (I myself have no
genealogical interest in Tivrov. It's a pity that for
many small towns in Eastern Europe, there exists only
information about holocaust events, rather than a
history and descriptions of life in those towns.)

meet on Sunday April 9, 2006 >from 2:00-4:00 p.m.

Our program, "How to Begin Your Genealogy Research: Part II-Using the
Internet" will have three accomplished Jewish genealogists as presenters:

Debra Kay Blatt, JGSCV board member, has been researching her family history
for six years. She has been a contributor to the Kielce-Radom Special
Interest Group Journal and a volunteer for JewishGen.

Warren Blatt, JGSCV webmaster and vice president and editor-in-chief,
JewishGen.

Jan Meisels Allen, president, JGSCV, and serves as a director on the board
of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS)

JGSCV's April 9th meeting will help you with your genealogy research. Even
if you did not attend Part I, you can attend and learn >from Part II! Please
submit your questions by April 1 to president@... . We will not be
able to include questions submitted after April 1! We will cover as
many questions as possible, however, we may not have time to deal with all
of the submitted questions. You need to be in attendance for the answers!

Samples of questions for submission include: Where or how can I find my
ancestral shtetl? If I don't know the shtetl, what can I do to learn this?
Do records exist for them and where do I look? What street did my uncle live
on in Brooklyn? On what ship did Bubbie immigrate? How can I order my
parents' marriage certificate?

Although JGSCV board members, Debra Kay Blatt and Warren Blatt will try to
answer your genealogy research Internet-related questions, on what and where
to research various Internet sites, they are not doing your genealogy. They
are going to demonstrate how *you* can use Internet research to find answers
to your family history.

There will also be a presentation by Jan Meisels Allen on how city
directories and WWI and WWII records can assist in your research.

The meeting is scheduled for April 9, 2006 >from 2:00-4:00 pm at Temple Adat
Elohim in the Sanctuary. The meeting is co-sponsored with Temple Adat
Elohim .

JGS Pittsburgh April Meeting #general

JGS Pittsburgh April Meeting
Date: Monday, April 24, 2006
Time: 7:30 P.M.
Place: Rudolph Family Holocaust Ctr.of United Jewish Federation
JCC Robinson Bldg.
5738 Darlington Rd.
Pittsburgh, PA 15217

Speakers: Marty Madigan, Register of Wills Office

I can hear it now! " Why bother coming to hear these guys? I don't have
any marriages, births, deaths or whatever in Pittsburgh." Or, "I've got all
the information on my Pittsburgh connections. I'm only interested in Poland."
But records are records and vital statistics are no different in Berlin,
Germany than they are in Berlin, Pennsylvania. Even though you have no
Pittsburgh research to do, our speakers for this meeting have a great deal to
offer you. Learn what kinds of records exist in government offices and how to
access them. Learn what can be gleaned >from these records.

If you do have local research to do, learn to think beyond just birth and
marriage records. For example, estate records are available at the Register
of Wills Office and run >from 1789 when Allegheny County was formed to date.
The estates are indexed under the Russell Code system. Estates prior to 1935
use two index books. Allegheny county averages 20 Estates probated a day so the
records holdings are extensive. If you have an ancestor who arrived early
from the Old Country, you might be able to find his or her application for
citizenship.
So keep an open mind and think about new possibilities.

Census Records for Shridam (possibll Schiedam), Holland #general

Don and Debby Painter <painter@...>
 

I am wondering if any one has access to census records for Shridam
(possible Schiedam?), Holland for the period of 1914-1919? I am trying
to pinpoint my Great-Grandfather (and families) residencies during the
First World War. I am pretty sure his eldest daughter was married there
and her first son born there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cemeteries/Records for Elbing, WestPrussia/ Elblag,Poland #general

Carolyn Lea <clea@...>
 

I have recently made contact with a cousin (he went on Jewishgen to update
his old info and found my name after I had tried unsuccessfully to contact
him for the last year!) and he is planning to make a trip to Elblag in May.
I have been working on our LEWISOHN family records >from Elblag using the FHL
film for Jewish records for Elbing >from 1812-1871 and I have forwarded the
information to my cousin. He is interested in locating additional records
and cemeteries where our family may be buried.

from checking the Jewish cemetery project it appears to me that the Jewish
cemetery in Elblag has no stones or markers and that there is no longer a
Jewish population in Elblag. Does anyone have any familiarity with this,
additional information, or suggestions I can forward to him?

We are not certain how many family members came to the US - so far I have
only confirmed two brothers and one sister - and I have been unable to
locate any immigration info. There are civil records for Elbing (not
specifically Jewish) that begin in 1874 (FHL films). Has anyone used these
films to know if these would include Jewish deaths? He will visit Elblag and
Gdansk for a very short time and I want to make his trip as fruitful as
possible. The family members that I have located in the US came over between
1870 and 1890 according to census records. I do not know when the Jewish
community left Elbing or other towns in that vicinity but assume it was
prior to WWII.

Help Reading an Address in Vilna #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

I'm trying to read a Vilna address on my great-aunt's manifest. Her
name is Feibe (sic) ORLIN & she arrived 27 July 1907. There's a
slight confusion - a doubling of pages; the one to look at is 0127,
line 11. At the end of the line, where it asks for person left
behind, there is the name of her mother, "Mine" & under that an
address. One of the words begins with a "U" - I think it means
"street." But what is the street name & maybe a number?!!!

Best, Steve Orlen
Tucson, AZ

Please reply privately.

"Obscure" Shtetls and Dorfs #general

Joan Rosen <jgrosen@...>
 

Officially a "shtetl" was a market town--one large enough to have a market.
A "dorf" (German for "village" and perhaps Yiddish for the same) was smaller
than that, and did not have a market. If you lived in a dorf, presumably
you would have to travel to the nearest shtetl to buy goods. (This I
learned in a history course taught at Gratz College by Dr. Michael
Steinlauf.)
