Arnold,

This is Dolginovo (ex Dolginuv, Dolginov, or Dolhinow) located near the
larger town Vileyka in Belarus at 5439 2729.

Town used to be located in Vilna Guberniya (Russian Empire) prior to the end
ofWWI, and was in Poland, Wilno Province during the interwar period.

Can you help???????????

Given that the name has an "H" in it, you are probably barking up the
wrong tree by looking in Russia. Not every place that was in the
Russian Empire (which is what the petition form wanted) is or was in
Russia. Much more likely, your uncle was born in Ukraina.

The last syllable of "Dolhinif" is very suspicious and improbable. It
would be a good idea to scan the relevant portion of the petition
(just the word itself) in as high a definition as you can manage, so
that it will be large enough to enable people to ponder what the
letters really are, and post it on Viewmate.

Reading a US census record #general

meowkatt2002@...
 

Hi, I haven't had much luck finding my grandfather on anything I have
looked up. I have tried all kinds of name versions. Anyway, I found him
in the 1930 Chicago census. I looked it up on [commercial site]. If I want to
get into record it costs alot. Is there a free site I can look this up on?
What is on the census form? Would it have some info on where he came >from
etc? Thanks Pam Prince

Searching: William PRINCE, Belarus, maybe Brest-Litovsk. Father Benjamin.
14 kids in family.

MODERATOR NOTE: Read the JewishGen FAQ -- Frequently Asked Questions --
at http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/faq.html . It has information
about the National Archives and Family History Centers, both of which
offer the US Census on microfilm. See if there's a location near you.
The FAQ has a lot of valuable information about genealogy research,
and was updated just last month.

Margulies/Margolioth connections #galicia

Dan Rottenberg <d.rottenberg@...>
 

Dear Gesher Galicia:

Re Margulies/Margolioth:

I'm seeking help in figuring out how/if my Margulies/Margolioth
ancestors >from Zbarazh, Galicia were related to the famous Margolioth
rabbinic dynasty, some of whose members flourished in that area.

I have four good reasons for believing such a connection exists, and
one reason to believe that it doesn't. The reasons in favor:

1. Two of my Margulies relatives told me years ago that the family
was descended >from rabbis.

2. In the 18th Century, two generations of the famous Margolioth
rabbinical family served as rabbis in Zbarazh, the same town where my
Margulies ancestors lived at least as far back as 1750. Zbarazh had a
Jewish population of just 910 in 1765, so it seems likely that any
Jews with such a distinctive name in such a small community would be
related somehow.

3. Rabbi Meir Wunder of Jerusalem, the authority on Galician
rabbinical genealogies, once told me himself that all Margolioths
from Eastern Galicia are related.
4. My Margulies ancestors in Zbarazh were intermarried with two other
families with famous rabbinic names. My great-great-grandfather
Schaie Margulies (1838-1885) married Reizel Schapira, daughter of
Leib Schapira (1800-1863). Leib Schapira's wife (Reizel's mother) was
Czarne Barak Schapira (1818-1878), daughter of Markus Barak (born
about 1790). The name Schapira is often traced back to the Spira
rabbinic dynasty, and Barak is often an acronym for "ben Reb
Kalonymus," indicating descent >from the Kalonymus rabbinic dynasty. I
have no idea if my Schapira and Barak ancestors are of rabbinic
descent, but the interconnection of these names is striking.

One reason that casts doubt on a connection:

1. My great-grandfather Louis Margulies (1864-1923) was a Levite,
according to his gravestone. I've found nothing in any rabbinic
literature to indicate that the rabbinical Margolioths were Levites.

Any help in shedding light on my quest would be appreciated. The
details about my Margolioth ancestors >from Zbarazh are as follows: My
great-grandfather Louis Margulies (1864-1923) was the son of Schaie
Margulies (1838-1885), who was the son of Leizer Margulies
(1808-1859). Leizer's father's name isn't known, but his mother's
married name was Ruchel Margulies (1790-1831). She in turn was the
daughter-in-law of another Ruchel Margulies (1750-1834), whose
husband's name also isn't known. I'm speculating that one of these
two Ruchels may have been married to a descendant of the Margolioth
rabbinic dynasty. But how explain the Levite designation? Thanks for
any help you can provide.

Cadastral records [was: Przemysl house numbers] #galicia

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Thanks very much to Mark Halpern and Israel Pickholz for their responses to
my question about Przemysl house numbers. Mark mentioned Cadastral records,
which interest me greatly, since I would like to locate precisely where some
of my ancestors lived in the late 18th century.

Is anyone aware of projects to index or systematically acquire (copies of)
Galician Cadastral records? Would this even be feasible? I imagine it
would involve shtetl-specific fundraising. Have any SIGgers acquired any
Cadastral records?

Thanks very much.
