Dunayevtsy, Ukraine #ukraine

Carol Rombro Rider
 

I am delighted to respond to your request concerning information for
Database#1.
The name of the shtetl can be found on modern maps as Dunayevtsy, Ukraine,
located just north-east of Kamenitz Podolsk. But our ancestors never referred
to it by that name; to its Jewish inhabitants it was known as Dinovitz
(Dinovits, etc.)

My grandmother's family was KUSHNER >from Dinovitz, and I understand >from
research that there were two separate Kushner families living there. Moshe
KUSHNER (b.1852) married Naomi ZEHERMAN and had four children--Leib, Yitzhak,
Benyamin and Masha. Leib came to America; very unhappy in Baltimore he returned
to Dinovitz to be murdered in a pogrom. Yitzhak (Isacc) lived in California
and moved in political circles. Benyamin (Bernardo) emmigrated to
Argentina, and raised a family there. My grandmother, Masha, married Reuben
ROMBRO and raised a family in Baltimore, Maryland. As a postscript, Naomi
KUSHNER was pregnant with Masha when Moshe died. Naomi remarried (name unknown)
and subsequently had a daughter with her second husband.

There was also a BERMAN family in Dinovitz, related to my KUSHNERs. If
anyone is interested, I do have some additional information on the BERMAN family.

I have an aerial photo of Dinovitz that I would be delighted to share with
the group, as well as current photos of the town, including the streets where
the Jews did live. Also, I have pictures of the Jewish cemetery, although
the old cemetery has very few tombstone standing.

There is a building with a plaque on it dedicated to the LERMAN family of
Dinovitz. If anyone is interested, I will gladly send it along or have it
posted on the Ukraine SIG.

I also have a Financial Statement of the Dinovitzer Society >from 1948 ( I
believe) with many names listed on the paper. This was published in the United
States.

I will gladly share all information with the group, so please let me know if
you are interested!

our Shtetl pages. That way we can all learn what life was
really like for our ancestors and understand what they went
thru before leaving for other lands.

Many of the early families that went to Ottumwa, Iowa said they
came >from Constantin or Konstantin in the Ukraine. A Soundex

anyone know which town location in the Ukraine was the town of origin

I suggested to Jules Levin that he provide samples of the different
languages for help. In Europe we are more familiar with foreign lanaguages
by the proximity of the countries and now with the expansion of the EU
increased travel with Eastern Europe.

Likewise in Israel there are people >from many countries and the inhabitants
do come across, say, newspapers in many European languages.

I think that the main problem is identifying the language when it is already
in a difficult hand. For instance, a Russian hand looks very much like an
English copperplate unless one looks at it closely.

I wonder if any of you in France could help to put me in touch with a
Marlene SAY, who was apparently researching a LERHMAN family >from Kurov,
Poland. She said that she lived in the Paris area, and gave the email
address of < bernard.say@wanadoo.fr > She has never responded back to
any emails, but messages sent to that address do not bounce back.
Attempts to locate her on the Infobel.fr site do not find her family.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
