MACHLIN and GOROBNIK from Pinsk #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

I found two of my MACHLIN relatives, Dov & Malka, on the Pinsk Ghetto
Database. They were the children of Alzer M and Chaika nee LIBERMAN.On Yad
Vashem, I found a number of MACHLINs, but the informant sometimes gave
minimal information (registered in 1957), so I don't know if the names
represent my family. The informant's name was Ita GOROBNIK. I can't read
the records, but I think she was living in Israel.

Does anyone know the GOROBNIK family in Israel?

Best, Steve Orlen

Re: Tel-Aviv - Tagore Street #general

Rony <golanron@...>
 

Israel,

If you inquire with Bezeq 144 service (Information) about a specific
name/address, they will tell you if the number is "unlisted" ("Chasuy").
They will not tell you what the number *is*, but they will confirm that
there is a phone there.

Ramat Hasharon, Israel

(This is a correction to my previous post which mistakenly referred to
Brodetzki Street. Sorry about that.)

Is there someone in north Tel-Aviv who can pass by a building on
Tagore Street and check the names on the mailbox for me please. I
have a name and address, but there is no listing in the phone book.
Before I assume it's simply an unlisted number, I'd like to see if there
is actually someone by that name at that address.

I would much appreciate if someone who reads Yiddish would translate this
postcard posted to View Mate:
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6549

The postcard, with an address in Russian to my great-grandfather, Boruch
GHERMAN (German), was written to him by, I believe, his son Noach GHERMAN.

My great-uncle Rafael GHERMAN was holding the postcard during a pogrom by
Ukrainian Nationalist forces in the village of Kunev, Ukraine, in 1919.

Please send all replies to me personally at barryzwick@aol.com.

Thanks so much.

~~~~~~~~~~
1. Historical Museum of the City of Bialystok will be sharing copies of
documents and maps with BIALYGen.
a) First document is 1929 Bialystok Telephone Directory, which will
be indexed and placed online
b) We should receive a copy of a 1915 Bialystok City map, the first
map produced with Street names and numbers. Hopefully, we can use this
map and other documents to find locations where our ancestors lived and
worked.
c) We have a large group of images of postcards and other
correspondence of Mr. Wulf Wrobel >from the 1930s. These are in Yiddish
and may contain information important to all of us.
d) We are also expecting scans of other pre-war scenes and people of
Jewish Bialystok, which we will place online in our Photo album.

2. JRI-Poland initiatives
a) Archivist and professional researchers will be expanding the
indices already created for Bialystok and Tykocin. This means adding
father's father name, mother's maiden name and mother's father's name
where they exist.
b) A new source of 20th Century genealogical information will be
indexed. These are listing for 1928-38 of men that evaded the Polish
draft in Bialystok Province. Data includes date and place of birth,
place of residence, and parents' names.

Bialystok Wschodnia Street Cemetery
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I described my April visit to the Cemetery. The condition of the
Cemetery continues to deteriorate. As a City park, the free access means
dumping and vandalism will continue. A project to restore the Cemetery
has commenced and was explained.

Jewish Family History Foundation
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
David and Sonia Hoffman, the principals of the Foundation explained
their goal of providing genealogical data >from the 18th Century for the
Kingdom of Poland and Grand Duchy of Lithuania. They already have data

Census/Tax lists for Sokolka, Suchowola, Janowa, Korycin, Zabludow,
Krynki, Wasilkow, Kuznica, Novy Dwor, Sidra. For more information see
the Foundation website at http://www.jewishfamilyhistory.org/.

Las Vegas,
Mark Halpern
BIALYGen Coordinator

MODERATOR'S NOTE: A hearty "Yasher Koach" to BialyGen Coordinator Mark
Halpern and Research Coordinator Sidney Zabludoff for amassing such an
impressive amount of research material in the two short years in which
since BialyGen was organized.
