Schlissel Challah #general

Gayle Schlissel Riley <key2pst@...>
 

I found a document on a online auction site, which is very beautiful. My
cousin Arnie says it talks about a *Schlissel Challah*. Has anyone ever
heard about about this and what does it mean?. My family name was
Schlissel I thought they were key makers but now I am wondering if this
relates at all. They did sell cooking flour in Poland. Any ideas?

Hi,

Does anyone know how I could find any sort of papers/documents for a man
who would have been in the Polish Army circa 1939-1941? Are there any
on line resources for such records?

Thanks,

Hello JewishGenners:
Once again I am posting an enquiry in the hope that perhaps
someone in the group might have knowledge of the following
Burial Society in New York/Brooklyn/New Jersey, and which
cemetery/ies might have been used for this organization early 20thC.

Beth Jacob of Brooklyn Society
It is very possible this may now be defunct.

We are seeking the burial site of our paternal grandparents:
Pauline nee WASSERMAN JACOBSON/JACOBS from
Hungary to New York/New Jersey/Brooklyn and
Jacob JACOBSON/JACOBS >from Germany to New York/
New Jersey/Brooklyn - late 19thC.
If these names are familiar to any Genner, please contact us,
we have more information on the descendants of the above.

Re: Pogroms in central Ukraine - Vinittsya oblast -- circa 1916-1918 #ukraine

NFatouros@...
 

Another of my episodes of back pain and problems with my iMac prevented me
from writing a timely response to Charles Millman's inquiry about pogroms in
the Vinnitsa oblast, especially one which occurred in Bershad.

Although some members of the Tsarist government encouraged the development of
pogroms in early years, this was not the case during WW I and thereafter
under first the Provisional Government and then the Bolshevik regime. Rather,
during the period in question and in Ukraine especially (as distinct >from greater
Russia) the soldiers of several rival armies and members of less organized
groups which were anti-revolutionary, anti-Menshevik, anti-Bolsheviks, rose up
against Jews. Some of the pogroms during the years of 1917-1922 or 1923 have
been described as being even more destructive of Jewish lives and property
than those that occurred during Tsarist regimes.

As for a Bershad pogrom, see:


http://home.earthink.net/~perlgram/

The introduction to the display of an album of family photographs, states in
part that during the Civil War of 1919-1920, 150 Jews in Bershad were
massacred by Ukrainian gangs and soldiers of Denikin's army. At this website one can
click on very murky photograph of the March 1919 burial of the victims.

YIVO has a collection of eye witness testimonies of the 1919 pogromas. Most
of these accounts are in Yiddish, and some countain lists of victims.

The book by Elias Heifetz on "The Slaughter of the Jews in Ukraine," to
which Rose Feldman recently referred and which I also have mentioned in response
to earlier inquiries, is out of print, but copies may be available in
University and large city libraries. (There are several copies at Indiana
University's main library.)

Also, see:


E. Tcherikower, "In der Tekufe fun Revolutzie, I, 1924

"The Pogroms in the Ukraine under the Ukrainian Government 1917-1920:
Historical Survey" with documents and photos, 1927, published by the Comite des
Delegations Juives in French and English;

E.D. Rosenthal:Megillat ha-tebah, recording all the communities affected by
the pogroms.

Also cited are two more of a more general nature one of which is "The
Russian Revolution" by William Henry Chamberlin, and as well as particular book, a
memorial volume "Felshtyn-Zamilbuch tsum Odek fun di Felstyner Kdoshim," NY,
1937. In another footnote Elbogen says that Chamberlin cites:
S.Gusev-Orenburgsky , "Book about Jewish Pogroms in the Ukraine in 1919."

Also mentioned among Elbogen's footnotes is E. Heifetz, "Material Gathered
by the All-Ukrainian Committee for the Relief of Victims of Pogroms."

Podolia Uzeyds #ukraine

Terry Lasky <tlasky@...>
 

I am trying to determine for 5 different towns which Uzeyd (District)
they belonged to within the Podolia Guberniya. I have researched all
Ukraine-SIG databases and projects and can't find anything. I have been
unable to find any maps that show the boundaries of the Uzeyds within
Podolia in the late 1800's or early 1900's. If anyone can tell me the
correct Uzeyd for these towns or a source that shows the Uzeyd
boundaries I would appreciate it. All of the towns are currently in the
Transnistria area of Moldova (along the Dneister River) but were in the
Ukraine and Podolia guberniya for most of the 19th century and early
20th century. The towns are Frunzauca (Frunzovka), Camenca (Kamenka),
Rashkov, Ribnita (Ribnitsy) and Ofatinti (Vykhvatintsy).

Hello Everyone:
Here is a gold mine of pictures of towns and cities >from Wolin/Volhynia from
the early 20th century. There are a few pictures of synagogues and of the
Jewish community (e.g. Kamien Kashirskiy.) Since it has been posted by an
