Yizkor Book Project for April 2005 #courland #latvia

Joyce Field
 

Because of the Pesach holiday, April 2005 was a "short" month and our
production reflects that. One new book and 14 updated books went
online. All translations can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html and the current
additions have been flagged to make the search easier.

I would like to remind all new researchers that you can find whether
a yizkor book has been written about a particular town at the Yizkor
Book Database, http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html. You
can search the Necrology Index at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/. Our index to this
database says the following:

"The JewishGen Yizkor Book Necrology Database indexes the names of
persons in the necrologies -- the lists of Holocaust martyrs --
published in the Yizkor Books appearing on the JewishGen Yizkor Book
Translation Project. This database is only an index of names; it
directs researchers back to the Yizkor Book itself, where more
complete information may be available.

This database allows the surnames to be searched via soundex.
Because most of these names were transliterated >from Hebrew and
Yiddish, the spellings of the surnames may not be as you are used to
seeing them in Latin-alphabet sources."

This database currently contains over 165,000 entries >from the
necrologies of 177 different yizkor books. Remember that not all
yizkor books have necrologies.

New book:

"With a rifle in my hand and Eretz Israel in my heart" by Dov Levin,
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/dovlevin1/dovlevin1.html.

Updated books:

-Belchatow, Poland, http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Belchatow/Belchatow.html
-Belchatow, Poland,
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Belchatow_ann/Belchatow_ann.html
-Bolekhov, Ukraine
-Brest, Belarus, volume 2
-Bukowina book
-Chelm, Poland
-Czestochowa, Poland,
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Czestochowa1/Czestochowa1.html
-Holocaust in Belarus
-Jewish Music in Poland between the World Wars
-Maramures Region
-Novogrudok, Belarus
-Nowy Sacz, Poland
-Radomsko, Poland
-Shumskoye, Ukraine

As always, we wish to thank all the donors of material and the
project coordinators for their donations of translations and their
precious time. Nothing can be accomplished without your interest in
the Yizkor Book Project. We are always interested in new material
and look forward to hearing >from researchers wanting to start a new
translation project.

Re: Esther BASIOR #france

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

The name BASIOR is very rare in France since there are only two
persons with that name in the French telephone directory. Which means
most probably they are related to Icchok (or other spelling) BASIOR,
who was deported >from France on 26 June 1942 with the convoy #4.

Thre were only six births of BASIOR in France, all of them in Paris,
between 1916 and 1990.

There is no Esther BASIOR in the directory, and the two BASIOR listed
in the directory may be her children or even grandchildren.

More by private mail.

It was only when the Pages of Testimony went online that I learned that he
had been married and that his wife had survived. His wife, Esther BASIOR,
submitted a P of T for him on 2 Dec 1991. At the time she was living in
Vincennes. I have the address >from the P of T.

Hello All and Bonjour!

I've been trying unsuccessfully to get information about my father's family.
They were originally LEFELMAN's >from Vakhnovka (107.0 miles SW of Kiev),
Ukraine but could have been in other towns in and around that area.

My aunt, who passed away many years ago always spoke about her travels to
Paris to visit a branch of the LEFELMAN family sometime in the 1960's or
1970's. As luck would have it, we found her old address book and the names of
these relatives were actually LIPOVETSKY and connected to the LEFELMAN family in
some way. I have the following names, which could be misspelled: Jacoves
LIPOVETSKY, Josef LIPOVETSK, STEINBERG (first name unknown) and Ann ELIAZ
(eventually went to South Africa). The first 3 listed above lived in Paris.
Anyone familiar with these names?

Thank you,

Shelly Crane
other surnames I am searching include:

Re: Slovakian Jewry - emigration patterns? #general

AK <alan.kolnik@...>
 

Anita:

As I worked through this matter, I found a number of maps showing Jewish
emigration patterns which you might like to look at to see if any match the
patterns that you thiunk mught fit your family's origins.

One good place to start looking at maps is:

http://www.routledge.com/textbooks/0415236614/resources/indi.asp

Also take a look at this map (it is
found in several other places on the web as well):

http://www.chalem.com/genealogy/maps/migration.htm

- it indicates that Jews migrated to the north east out of "Hungary" and
"Austria" in the 1300's and 14-00's, so could easily have continued later -
say in the 1600's and 1700's, landing up in "poland"

There are rich textual sources such as:

http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/bukowinabook/Bukowina.html (you need to be
logged in to Jewish Gen to get to this)

http://members.shaw.ca/czernowitz/

http://www.khazaria.com/ and the sections thereunder:

Are Russian Jews Descended >from the Khazars?
Are Russian Jews Descended >from the German and Bohemian Jews?
Russian Jewish Genetics
Are Mountain Jews Descended >from the Khazars?

Re: Bukovina - village south of Krakow #general

There is a small village named Bukovina, south of Krakow, near the border
of Slovakia and Poland. On a map, follow the road >from Krakow south to Nowy
Targ, then turn right towards Trstena. It's on your right just before the
border. In the 1500s when the Ottoman empire spread into Hungary and
Romania, shepherds >from Wallachia (Romania) were permitted to establish a
few villages around the lower Tatra mountains in the Arva province of
Hungary. They brought the town name with them. The main wave of Jewish
settlement was the late 1700s and early 1800s, >from other parts of the
Austrian empire. The Hungarian SIG site has an 1850s census and some
indexes to vital records of Arva. I have a copy of fixed names taken by
Jews in Arva in 1787 and a few other name lists of the area.

Rachael SCHLEICH #general

David Grosz
 

Dear Jewishgenners,

I am making enquiries regarding Rachael SCHLEICH.

She was born in Whitechapel, London, England in the second quarter of 1862.
She married Lazarus MICHAELS (born Lazarus KOZAK in Kutno, Poland) on June
13, 1886 in Whitechapel, London, ENGLAND. She died in Sydney, Australia
on March 13, 1892. In Australia, Lazarus changed his name to Louis and was
sometimes known as Lewis. The MICHAELS lastname was oftened changed to
MICHAEL. Rachael's headstone suggests she was 28 and shows the lastname of
MICHAEL. Unless there was a transcription error into the data the website
FREEBMD uses, she was actually 29. On her headstone, it indicates her
father's name was Alyer SHLYECH. Can anybody please help further my
information such as her siblings, their spouses or her parents, etc? She
may have had a sister called Elisabeth born in the fourth quarter of 1866.

Thank you.

Kind Regards,
David Grosz

Anglicized version of given name SCHAME #general

Schame DUBINER (age 20) immigrated to the US in 1908 with his

His brother Scholem DUBINER became Charles RUBIN. As every other
family member also took the name RUBIN, we assume Schame did too.
But what would he have used for a first name? All guesses appreciated!
