What you were told may have been wishful thinking. I had an
experience several years ago when I was contacted by an individual
in Paris who asked me to research his ancestor who was a rabbi in
Jerusalem in the late 1800s and who, according to this person, was
on the Bet-Din of Rav Shmuel Salanter the Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem.
(I may be mixed up on whether it was Israel or Shmuel).

In short, after an extensive search in the national library in
Jerusalem, I found that the ancestor was a sofer sta"m (religious
scribe), had lived in Jerusalem at the time of Rav Salant, and had
to leave Jerusalem under unpleasant circumstances. The father of
this ancestor seems also to have been a rabbi (or atleast referred
to as such by one of the Hebrew newspapers of the time).

One of the leads you can check is with the Chevra Kaddisha of
Jerusalem (start with the Klali) and see if they have a registry on
him. You need his Hebrew name and his father's name and approx.
date of birth.

LEFKOVICS/LEFKOVITS/Slovakia #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

I recently learned of my great-great-grandparents Anna LEFKOVICS and
Izak (Benjamin Yitzhak haKohen) KOHN. They probably lived in what is
now eastern Slovakia, possibly near Michalovce (Nagymihaly) in Zemplen
or Sobrance (Szobrancz) in Ung megye. Their daughter Sara (Sali), my
great-grandmother, was born in 1846 and married Markus (Mordechai,
Marek) MOSKOVITS whose family lived in Szobrancz and Ungvar. In the
Michalovce cemetery I also found a grave for Ruchel (Roza) MOSKOVITS
(1832-1918) daughter of Yosef LEFKOVITS. She might have been my
great-grandmother's cousin. Please get in touch if any of these names
sound familiar.

BLOCH or BLIOKH #general

Irene K. <impromptus2002@...>
 

"Are Bliokh and Bloch spellings used to transliterate
the same name, so that these could be the same
person? "

The family name BLOKH, the last letter is "X" in
Russian could be spelled as BLOCH (old translation
rules). BLIOKH is rather unusual spelling.
I think the best is to write to the translator or
project coordinator and to ask for original record, if
possible.

Re: Rabbi and wife buried separately? Why #general

Sam Schleman <Samara99@...>
 

My GGP are buried in United Hebrew in the oldest block in the cemetery. They
died in 1911 and 1915 and are buried within the same block, but separately.
The director of the cemetery informed me that at that time, and only for the
oldest blocks in the cemetery, it was the practice for Orthodox to bury men
and women separately. This block has separate men and women's sections.

Dear group,
I meant to send this earlier, but forgot it was in my "Out" box.

Yes, it would be very nice indeed if we could find people in our
ancestors' countries to assist us with our research!

Of my four grandparents, two were >from Dnepropetrovsk, in the middle
Ukraine. Fully half of my ancestry. While Kiev is fairly accessible,
Dnep. is virtually closed. Letters have been written, contacts made
with people of some authority, and links via a sister-city program,
but absolutely no success or progress. I'd hoped (and *still* hope)
that we could engage the Jewish community there, and provide them
with a (much-needed) source of income, in return for finding the
documents we crave. We haven't even been able to find someone to
begin the process.
There is a archived-approved commercial service, which will quote a
price only to begin a search, and refuses to provide any other cost
breakdown or estimate, even for a single-record look-up.

I offer huge thanks to those living in Poland, Kiev, etc. who have
been willing to help us.

Re: Rabbi and wife buried separately? Why #general

Dear Genners,

Howie Axelrod asked why an Orthodox Rabbi and his wife are not buried next
to each other. I can only answer by giving an example.

My maternal grandfather and his family came >from Tetiev, Kiev Gub. My
maternal side of the family is buried in the Tetiever Cemetery (Orthodox)
in Cleveland, Ohio. In the old section of the cemetery men and women are
buried in separate rows, but never in the same row. Sometimes the rows
alternate (M-W-M-W) and sometimes they do not.

I imagine that as men and women in Orthodox religious rites when alive are
separate, they are separated in death also.

Birth record of Faywel GEWIRCMAN - Request for translation from Cyrillic #belarus

Tamar Amit <tamar.amit@...>
 

Dear Fellow Researchers:

I would be very grateful if someone would take a look at the following
1866 birth record >from Szczebrzeszyn, Poland. I believe it is in Cyrillic.
The JRI-Poland index indicates this should be the birth of Faywel son
of Moshe & Frieda GEWIRCMAN.
I would like to know the details in the record especially names and
places (as well as exact dates), but I would also like to obtain the
other details in the record.
Any help is appreciated.
