Dear Genners

I believe I have found an ancestor >from Lyachovichi, Belarus whose given
name is Yekhiyel. I am trying to match him up with other names I have >from
the same father. I have searched the JewishGen given names index with no
results. Could anyone tell me if this name is a version of Isaac, Itzko,
Benjamin, Ilya?

Hello Genners

I have found a reference to an ancestor in the "1881 list of Mozyr uyezd
people drafted in 1880 but did not report for duty". The list references the
"3rd draft office of Mozyr uyezd". I believe this draft office would include
the shtetl of Lachwa, but have no sure knowledge. Does anyone know how to
find out what towns the 3rd draft office would include?

Bialystok Yizkor Ceremonies #poland

Bialystoker
 

The period of 16-23 August 1943 marked the end for Jewish Bialystok. In
The Bialystoker Memorial Book, it is stated:

"During this period the final liquidation of the ghetto took place,
marked by heroic resistance of the ghetto Jews against the monstrous
oppressors. In that sorrowful week the ghetto was completely wiped off
the face of the earth, the resistance crushed in a wave of blood and
murder of the remaining 40,000 martyrs and Jewish Bialystok was turned
into a huge heap of ashes and dust."

Two ceremonies will commemorate this dark period in Bialystok's history
and the bravery of those who fought to the end.

In Bialystok, the commemoration will start at 12 Noon at the Memorial to
the Shoah Victims at the Zabia Street Ghetto Cemetery. Speeches by the
Mayor of Bialystok, a representative of the Israeli government, a
representative of the Jewish Community, and special guests >from overseas
will be followed by Kadish and the laying of wreaths and flowers to
honor the Bialystoker martyrs who perished during the Holocaust. After
the Ceremony, at 2:00 PM, all are invited to the Muzeum Wojska Polskiego
to view the exhibits, including "Bialystoker Jews at the Front during
World War II."

If you happen to be in Poland at this time, please try to attend.

In Israel, The Society of Former Residents of Bialystok and Surroundings
will hold the 62nd Remembrance Assembly at Kiryat Bialystok in Yehud.
The memorial will take place at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, 24 August 2005
near the Memorial Monument in the square of the Great Synagogue on Iccak
Melamed Street in Yehud.

If you live in Israel or happen to be visiting, please try to attend.

idea why I got the idea that this was the date the birth was recorded?
I know I'm asking for someone to read my mind, but I know that something

[...] If, for example, a son became anything other than a rabbi

Rabbi Wunder is alive and well in Jerusalem, and can answer all

In response to George's note, my great-grandfather's birth certificate from
Dubienka, Poland, 1874 documented two dates - the 16th and 28th of December
as his date of birth. I was not sure which one would correspond to our
current calendars. (I hadn't done my research on the Gregorian vs. Julian).

Perhaps someone can clarify this for me: Poland converted >from the Julian to

the Gregorian calendar system in 1582. However, following the Third
Partition of Poland in the late 1700s, it became part of the Russian Empire,

which remained on the Julian Calendar until 1918. So, when one finds a
birth, marriage, or death date in pre-1918 Polish civil documents, does one
assume the date given is in Julian (Old Style) or Gregorian (New Style)
form?
