The In clsion of Kossovo in the Ruzhany Website #belarus

Paul & Irene Berman <ikpjb@...>
 

I think I express the thanks of all of us, whose families originated in
Kossovo, in saying "Thank you" to Rose for including Kossovo in the Ruzhany
Website, to Shmuel Rabinovitch for adding his Kossovo photos and documents,
and to anyone else who has contributed material.

I also thank our courageous ancestors who took advantage of the opportunity
to leave those villages for distant, but better, places in which to live so
that they and we were not destroyed with all the rest of our brothers and
sisters who stayed and perished.

Shavua Tov - A Good Week,
Irene Berman

Researching: HALEVY EPSTEIN, STOLLER, FINKEL (FRANKLIN) of Kossov, New York
and Connecticut area and possibly Slonim; ASBELL of Myscahnyl (?) Gomel
Province and GINSBERG of Moghilev.

Re: Jankiel/Jankel #poland

So simple I'm afraid it's not. The oldest form of the name "Pankiewicz"
in Poland comes >from 1480 and in Ukraine about 1560. And the oldest
known me form of Pankewicz in the Russian empire comes probably only
from the last decennies of the 19th century. Then in Poland, Ukraine and
Belarus of the 18th and 19th century we find often in the sources and
official documents the forms "Pankiewicz" or sporadically "Pankowicz"
and not Pankewicz, while in the Lithuania the lithuanian spelling of
Pankiewicz in the form of Pankieviczius. Therefore the form "Pankiewicz"
seems me older and first of all primitive. It's right that the russian
cyryllic alphabet knows indeed two special and separate signs for the
slavonic equivalents of the latin letters "ie" and "e", but in the
russian administrative documents of the second half of the 19th century
all names with the letters "ie" and "e" (p.ex. Pankiewicz/Pankewicz,
Jankiel/Jankel) were written in both cases the same way. Because it's
often not easy to dinstinguish in the russian cyryllic documents which
form of the name really apears

I recently received the following message >from a university professor
that I am corresponding with >from Poland. As there is lots of renewed
interest among the Polish people about the Jews who once lived in Poland,
I think it is important for us to encourage this interest. Please write
to me privately and I will pass on your email address to him.

Rizinski and Katino families #lithuania

Nathalie Ried FREE <nathalieried@...>
 

Dear fellow researchers,

Some of my Vilnius ancestors went by the names RIZINSKI and
CATINO/KATINO.

According to A.Beider, RIZINSKI is a name >from the Vitebsk region, meaning :
from the village "Rizy" but it is not very common according to the Jewishgen
databases.

As far as CATINO/KATINO is concerned, it seems to be even more uncommon
: I have found lots of similar-sounding names such as Katan, Koton etc on
the Jewishgen databases but almost all of them had 2, not 3 syllables. Does
anyone of you by any chance know anything about those names/anyone bearing
them or where they come >from (I mean geographically) ?

Thank you in advance for any information you might want to share...

I've recently found the death notice for my great-grandmother, Chaie
Rachel DIRMEIK (born KALMANOWITZ). She died in Cape Town, South Africa
in 1938. Her birthplace is recorded as Okmeyany, Lithuania.

Re: identifying Lithuanian place "Okmeyany" ( Oshmiany, Oshmany, Ashmiany) #lithuania

Rita Vaiva <marginal@...>
 

Hello,
I don't think that Okmeyany can be Ashmena (Akmenos kelias in Lithuanian).
It rather can be, (and probably is) Akmene - but the problem is
that there are 6 items called Akmene on current Lithuanian map.
Best regards,
Rita Vaiva
