Lecture on Minks Archives #belarus

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

For all of those you asked about the lecture in Jerusalem by Neville Lamdan.
It was very interesting and its' most important point in my eyes was the
development of a methodological approach to researching, and some hints like
a visa to Belarus is good for one entrance, so if you plan on crossing the
border and then coming back, make sure you have the right type of visa.
He referred to a number of articles he has publishd on the Belarus SIG site.

Could you explain what you mean by "offer no real privileges". We know of
many priviliges that the Priests had and some minor ones that still exist
today.

I believe that the Bible considers a privilege to "Bless the people". They
get a tithe >from all the people etc.

Shabbat Shalom,

Yoni Ben-Ari
Privilege may be in the eye of the beholder. Besides getting the first aliya
laTorah, the only advantage is in officating at the occasional Pidyon haBen.
When my first son was born, this netted the Kohen the munificent sum of five
silver dollars (plus all he could eat at the buffet we laid on).

I am not sure that "all the people" do much tithing anymore, nor, in the
absence of animal sacrifices, is there much free lunch attached to the
position.

Re: Looking after Szerencs cemetery information #hungary

KSL <resume@...>
 

When people plan trips like this, it would be great if they could consider
photographing all the tombstones in the cemetery. This may be the only
opportunity to record the stones before they suffer the ravishes of the
elements and the vandals.

Of course, such a project may only be feasible if the cemetery is not too
large. Even just photographing a section of the cemetery would be better
than not getting the records at all.

Does Jewishgen have a facilty to hold the photographs? Future visitors to a
particular cemetery could see whaich sections had been photographed and
could then undertake to do some additional photography. Eventually, with
luck, all the stones in the cemeteries will be recorded.

Genners,
I am preparing a trip to the old country and one of the towns I will visit
is Szerencs in Zemplen county.
I will like to know if the Jewish cemetery still exist, where is situated
and if is open to the public.
Are there any other relevant genealogical resources in the area.
Any information on the matters will be appreciated.
MODERATOR NOTE: JewishGen does indeed have a project along these
lines, the JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR). Although
photographs of stones are not currently directly available on the Web, they
may be submitted as raw material for a database which is available. For
more information, see http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/

Polish citizenship, circa 1922 #general

Mel Comisarow <melcom@...>
 

My father's ancestors were Litvaks, Lithuanian Jews, who migrated to
southeastern Ukraine around 1850. Various branches of this family, who
were resident in Southeastern Ukraine early in the 20th century,
migrated to the New World after WWI. When these post-WWI Ukrainian
residents migrated to the New World they travelled on Polish passports.
Some memoirs of this family state the these people were eligible for
Polish citizenship since their ancestors came (1850) >from towns that
after WWI were in Poland. My father recalled that these Polish passports
may have had some connection to the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk, which was
the March 3, 1918 peace treaty between Russia and Germany. Does anyone
know how a Southeastern Ukrainian Jew, born in Ukraine and whose parents
were born in Southeastern Ukraine, could, circa 1922, qualify (by
ancestry?) for Polish citizenship?

Lost Marriage #unitedkingdom

momat@...
 

I am going round in ever increasing circles searching for the Marriage Certificate
of my Great Grand Father ABRAHAM JACOBS and his second wife LOTTIE SINCLAIR.

I have searched Scotland's People site for this as he died in GLASGOW and Lottie
is stated as his second wife.

Have also searched the YORKSHIRE B M D as he was on the 1901 Census there prior to
coming to Glasgow , but no record of this marriage anywhere! Could it have gone
unregistered or maybe a Defacto marriage ?

Where to now ?

Puzzled.
