Viewmate 6073: Russian? translation #scandinavia

Elsebeth Paikin
 

I will be most grateful if someone can read and translate the handwritten
message on the back of the photo (Viewmate # 6074). The photo was
apparently taken in Denmark and then sent "home" to the family.

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6074

The photo was found in the album belonging to a family whose forebears came
from St. Petersburg.
Thanking you in anticipation

Elsebeth Paikin
 

Does anyone recognize these two girls?

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6074

On the back of the photo is a handwritten greeting (Viewmate # 6073) dated
1910. The photo was apparently taken in Denmark and then sent "home" to the
family.

The photo was found in the album belonging to a family whose forebears came
from St. Petersburg. (Some of the surnames found in the family:
KVIATKOWSKI, SOFFER/SOFER/SOPHER, RUBINOWITZ, SHAITS, MEISTER,
GERSHEINBEIN, KEMACH).

Thanking you in anticipation

Jekabils/Krustpils #latvia

John Cakars <latvija@...>
 

It appears >from the discussion, on this topic, that
current material has not been reviewed. The book
"Celvedis pa Latviju" by Arvids Plaudis is a travel
guide. I have the 1998 edition. On page 52, the
discussion about Jekabpils is started by "Pilseta
izvedojusies abos Daugavas krastos, 1962. g. tai
pievienojot Krustpili." He goes on about the history
of Jekabpils. On page 53, "Pilsetas tiesibas
Krustpilij tika pieskirtas 1920. g., bet 1962. g. to
pievienoja Jekabpilij." The author does not mention
any kind of joining after WWI. Krustpils became part
of Jekabpils as part of the Soviet design and rule in
1962.

Another source, which I will cite, is devoted to the
77 cities of Latvia. "Vadonis pa 77 Latvijas
pilsetam," page 53, "Jekabpils: Pilsetas tiesibas kops
1670. gada; Platiba 23 km; Iedzivotaji: 28384
(1999.g.); latviesi 51,5%, krievi 38%, baltkrievi
2,5%; Attalims no Rigas 143 km; Dzelcela stacija
Krustpils 129,4 no Rigas (linija Riga-Daugavpils,
Riga-Zilupe). Rajona Centers"

Jekabpils has been a city since 1670. It is 23 square
km. The inhabitants are 51,5 Latvian, 38% Russians,
2,5% White Russians. It is 143km >from Riga. The train
station is in Krustpils. Jekabpils is considered a
regional center.

Those are the highlights of Jekabpils. "Krustpils
pirmoreiz mineta 1237. gada, miests minets 1511. gada.
Pilsetas tiesibas Krustpilij pieskirtas 1920. gada,
pievienota Jekabpilij 1962. gada." Although Krustpils
was mentioned as far back as 1237, it did not gain
"City" status until 1920. And then, as this author has
pointed out, the Latvian SSR made Krustpils part of
Jekabpils, in 1962.

This book has maps of both Jekabpils and Krustpils.
There is a Jewish cemetery in Jekapils off Araja iela.
I couldn't find any cemeteries in Krustpils proper.
There is a cemetery about 4-5 km away >from Krustpils.
But it is on the edge of the map.

Yes, the Courland Research Group is still alive and well.

The article I wrote, as someone kindly pointed out to me, was in Volume
7, Issue 4 - July 2003. It was entitled "Where should you look for your
Latvian Ancestors?" I hope that is correct! The articles >from The
Latvia SIG Bulletin are not available online. I think you can purchase
back copies, if available, >from the SIGs treasurer, Mike Getz. I notice
on the Latvia SIG Newsletter index on Jewishgen, that there is an

the online index does not include authors of all the articles, so it is
a bit hard to tell, especially if someone else is doing research in the
same area!

Dear Genres,

I was told by someone there is/was a village, town named ROHEL in Israel.
Unfortunately, I have no idea what region. Although Rohel is not a Jewish
surname, it is a variant of Rachel, according to "Jewish Personal Names" book,
by Rabbi Shmuel Gorr.

I have searched the Internet for maps, etc., but I am unable to find one
detailed enough or "searchable" road map for Israel.

Can you help me finding Rohel village-town in Israel?

BROWN- Hampshire - New Member #unitedkingdom

SL B <myst_muse@...>
 

Hi there:

Although I am not of the Jewish faith, I believe I may have Jewish heritage
tracing back to the Hampshire (Winchester, St. Maurice, Sparsholt, Southsea
and other areas) county of England. The clues I have are perhaps incidental,
but I would appreciate any and all experienced genealogical opinions on the
following:

My great-great-grandfather's name was Lewis BROWN, his trade tailoring, and
he was baptised C of E in Sparsholt in on January 27th of January 1820; his
older brother's name was Reuben BROWN, baptised in St. Maurice February 7th
1816; Their father, my great-great-great-grandfather moved the family around
a lot, listing various occupations >from "plublican" to "chapman" to "farmer"
on the children's baptismal records (there were eight that I know of in
all); on October 17th 1808 he married Sarah FIFIELD, the daugher of Robert
FIFIELD and Rachel MERSH, and the names Sarah and Hannah show up again in
family baptismal records; According to the 1891 Census, my
great-grandfather's older sister Elizabeth Amelia BROWN is recorded as
living on Jewry Street, which is the "High Street" of Winchester thus
probably just a coincidence, working as a fishmonger-poulterer. On the 2nd
of January 1853, Lewis BROWN married Jane MOORE and the two then emigrated
to Orangeville, Ontario, Canada hence the Canadian connection.

All the records I have for my ancestors thus far indicate the
Anglican/Church of England tradition that I carry on to this day, but >from
the admittedly rudimentary knowledge I have of Jewish history in England I
wonder if, in fact, I do have Jewish cultural ancestral heritage which may
either date back to pre-Medieval expulsion or a later immigration date and
surname change(s)?

Any and all feedback, thoughts, advice, hunches >from fellow genealogists
would be greatly appreciated!

Sincerest best wishes >from Canada!
