Looking for anyone with an interest in this little town.
ERER (HERER, HELLER) is the surname of interest, but I'd appreciate
any info on the town itself.

Re: Falticeni - Crimean Jews - Sephardic Jews #romania

It means "the lame". It is not a family name and has nothing to do with
Crimea.

I am looking for information about a great grandfather >from Falticeni,
Romania whose name was Gershon DER KRIMMER. Is this an actual
surname, or does it mean that he was >from Crimea? Does anyone have
information about Crimean Jews in Romania? When they came and why
they came and who they were?

thanks

Sephardim in Belarus #belarus

Albert <alic99@...>
 

Anything surprising,
Many Jews of Belarus, especially in its eastern part,
were kept Turkic features, anything the general not having with features Sephardim,
which in Belarus the scanty number has got.
Left to us in the inheritance of features it Khazarian track in destiny of Jews of the Eastern Europe.
The Ukrainian Jewry has kept it to a lesser degree (by the way, here has got more Sephardim),
as its ancient part has been destroyed in days of Khmelnitcina and Haidamatchina (17-18), whereupon to Ukraine was
the big inflow of Jews >from Galicia and other places.

Sorry: I gave the wrong URL for the Viewmate 6073 - I therefore resend

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 online index does not include authors of all the articles, so it is
