Re: Ben Bernanke-Roots #poland

Mark Halpern
 

Although I know nothing about Ben Bernanke's roots, I suggest that Jacob
and others use the JRI-Poland database to determine where in Poland a
surname was used.

If you search the JRI-Poland database for BERNANKE, the only area where
this name appears is in index entries >from Boryslaw, Drohobycz, Sambor,
and Skole -- all >from the southeastern part of Ukraine, formerly
Galicia. All these towns are within 40 miles of the others.

Alexander Beider's book "A Dictionary of Jewish Surnames >from Galicia"
states that the roots of this name is unclear.

Dear Galitzianers and other researchers,
The new Chairman of Federal Reserve bears a surname
which sounds Galitzian.

Without infringing into his privacy which should be
respected I wonder where are they >from and when did
they reach the US?

Re: Patterns of moving from one town to another #lithuania

In addition to marriage and family as reasons, there is PARNOSSE
(making a living). Jews' occupations were limited and towns were small
(even Vilna wasn't a big city in the sense of a modern metropolis).
How many shoemakers, tailors, seamstresses, water-carriers, shammeses
(shul caretakers), and petty tradesmen could any one shtetl support?
Think about how many Jews became peddlars because of the limited
opportunities to make money in any one place. Sometimes young people
moved to nearby shtetls (often to live with relatives) so they could
apprentice and learn a craft.

The difficult economic reality is a factor never to lose sight of.
There were of course successful Jews who built up their businesses --
not everybody was poor -- but even well-off families could and did lose
everything when the "winds of war" swept through or when the borders
moved or when they fell victim to a pogrom.

Precarious..... precarious... precarious.... "the fiddler on the roof"
who could slide off at any moment. I think the most all-encompassing
answer to Tamar's question is that Jews moved in order to survive.

Hallo South African Siggers

FOR DAVID CONWAY.

There was a Raymond GILINSKY living in South Africa and he now lives in
Irvine, USA. He has a brother Lionel (also in Irvine) and sister Ray
(Deceased) (I think her surname was HESSELBERG) and another sister, I cant
remember her name. Then there was another GILINSKY family, I seem to think
the fellows name was Joe GILINSKY. I can find out. I dont think the two
families were related to one another.

on the MIRRELSON side of my Family Tree, a SPIRO married an Ann GILINSKY
born 1908 in Benoni, South Africa. I know nothing about Ann's GILINSKY
family, except that she married into our family.

Galinsky/Gilinsky #southafrica

Scooby Doo
 

Dear David,

Although I was born & bred in South Africa, I have been living in London for
15 years.
I hope I can help you regarding your Galinsky family.

I don't know exactly what you are trying to find out...if it's just anything
to do with your Galinsky ancestors in general or just information about any
branches that landed up in South Africa?

I, together with a cousin in the USA have been tracing the Gavendo-Galinsky
family tree for over 20 years. I have concentrated on the Gavendo branch of
the family while the cousin in the USA has been collecting info about ALL
Galinsky family & the various variant spellings of the surname.
We have published a few editions of our Family Book, which contains all the
info regarding the Gavendo/Gavenda family as well as info regarding all the
Galinsky family who over the years have provided us with their various
family trees. I need to tell you that whereas all the Gavendo family , & the
variant spellings of that surname , are all related to one another, NOT all
the Galinsky/Gilinsky family are related to one another. By collating
whatever Galinsky/Gilinsky info came our way over the years, we have been
able to link certain branches to our Gilinsky family & also link other
branches to one another even if they were not related to our branch.

Over the last 2-3 years we have had members >from all the various branches
Genetically tested & so we have now been able to proove genetically which
branches are related & which are not. We actually held a Gilinsky/Galinsky
family reunion in London a while back. I don't know how far back you have
been able to trace your family but I can tell you that you are presently
showing as being descended >from Enoch Galinski. Most of the people who
attended the London Reunion were descendants of Enoch Galinski & thus your
relatives. If my memory serves me correctly, your Galinski family has been
shown through the Genetic Testing not to be related to my branch . Your
family tree has been extensively researched & if you let me know what you
are trying to find out, I will try put you in touch with the people who can
help you most. Also, feel free to ask me any questions you may have.

Ukraine SIG News Alert - New Projects Pages #ukraine

Deborah Glassman <historian2020@...>
 

Dear Fellow SIG Members

We continue to add resources to the Web site.

Go to our Projects Page http://www.jewishgen.org/Ukraine/projects.htm to see
that:

1. Ron Doctor and Sheree Roth together leading the Kremenets Shtetl CO-OP of
the JRI-Poland, have provided an amazing set of tools that in addition to
showing you the picture of what your surname probably looks like in Russian
and Hebrew (if it is one of the surnames also in their region) and specific
words for causes of death, or for occupations, or for words in vital and
demographic materials; also gives name indexes to a major community in
Volhynnia gubernia.

2. The ShtetLink Webmasters of the Ukraine now have a new forum to let you
know about their work and their upcoming projects. And the webmasters of
Litin, Poninka, and Snitkowo have begun to do so.

3. That there is a new place to collect a visual database of info on
photographer's marks >from different cities so that eventually, we can help
date your photos . We certainly want every photo that you have that was
taken in Ukrainian towns and cities. But now we also want you to turn them
over and send the photographer's details that are on the backs too.

4.Where the flood of data and pictures that you have been sending has gone
to make our projects work.

What you can't see there are the volunteer efforts that the membership have
begun after these project needs were posted.. Alex Kopelberg helped bring
into being five pages of quality modern photographs of Zhitomir and is eager
to help with other Volhynnian projects. Laura Katz, Bonnie Blish, Barbara
Stephenson, and Naomi Moderick have been creating indices of emigrants from
their respective ancestral towns of Smela, Dashev, Odessa, and Proskurov and
they have agreed to begin on the long slow process of creating an index that
did not exist previously for Third Parties named in the Records of the
Emigrants >from those towns. The names of people back in the "old country"
and the names of the relatives and friends waiting at the destination
address and the names of all members of a traveling party, these are the
names being tracked for the first time by these hard-working ladies, who
will be eyes-on for every manifest with an emigrant >from their towns. Eliana
Aizim has graciously shared photos, recipes, information about Brazilian
resources on Ukrainian immigrants, and suggestions that improved the
information-gathering ability of our databases. There are others who have
made important contributions too and I am going to try to work around to
naming them all in the coming months, I didn't even mention all of those who
have long been SIG activists.

In September we asked for information on particular towns as an incentive to
start the process rolling. Your fellow members understood the spirit of the
request and did not limit themselves to those towns. But it seems to help to
have a target list, so for November we would like folks sending us
pictures, family records, archival finds, etc. for the towns of Kharkov,
Poltava, Mogilev-Podolia, Lutsk, Nikolaev in Kherson, anyplace in Taurida or
Crimea, and Kremenchug.

If you have sent me data for one of the databases and it was not published
within 2 weeks of your sending it, can you please send me a note? With the
Holidays, it might have been put aside and not returned to, and your
contribution is important. Use the 2 week rule anytime, to make sure that
your material has not been misplaced.

I've often noted requests for translations >from Yiddish and other

Amherst, MA I obtained a four page list of translators living in many
states and outside the U.S. I contacted one who lived near me (in case I
needed to bring the original document) and got a good result.

I would gladly send a copy of the list of translators (in MS Word

make whatever arrangements suit their needs.
