Hello,

 

  בער     may not be a name.  Depending on the vowels, of course.  As is, it means illiterate, ignorant person.

 

Shalom, Malka Chosnek

Could היער be the word Hier indicating that the circumcision took place in the Mohel’s hometown?

California Voter Registration - 1930s #usa

Roberta Berman
 

I have an aunt who moved from Brooklyn, New York to Los Angeles in the 1930’s. She is listed in the “California, U.S., Voter Registrations, 1900-1968" on Ancestry for 1934 and 1936 in Los Angeles County.
She moved back to New York and applied for Social Security Nov. 25, 1936 giving an address in Brooklyn, NY.

Questions: How did the California registration work at that time? Was it good for only two years? What was the cutoff date to register in order to vote in an upcoming election?

Re: Terkowsky, Russland on 1885 passenger manifest #general

Lee Jaffe
 

The Gazetteer is one of the "other lines of inquiry" I've pursued before bringing my question to the group.  (I didn't list all the nooks and crannies I'd already explored, as that would have been a much longer narrative.)  The soundex search retrieves 64 possible communities, none of which have the icon denoting a larger Jewish community with further information. And none standout otherwise as a possible "previous residence" for my great-grandfather.   

Did you find something there that I'm missing?  -- Lee Jaffe

More than 3700 new records added to the All Odessa Database #ukraine

Ariel Parkansky
 

Hi everybody,

A first batch of the Marriages Indexes (years 1875, 1889, 1890 and 1906) containing more than 3700 records has been uploaded to the All Odessa Database of the Odessa Kehilalinks (https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/odessa).

As a remainder, the indexes are not the full records and contain only a limited amount of information (year, name of the bride and groom, sometimes full date and record number).

A big thank you to Laura Breitberg who translated all those records!

Re: How to pay the Ukrainian Archives for research #ukraine

alan moskowitz
 

Mark -  This would be the Chernihiv archive.  The main archive sent my request to Poltava Archive which responded they had no information, and recommended the Chernihiv archive.  
 
Susan - yes there were 2 names which I used in the subject line.  I am sure all the needed information is present in the document but because of the format, (tables, headings etc) I do not get a 'clean' translation.

Re: Searching Maimon #usa

Sherri Bobish
 


Stuart,

Using Giannis' finding of Benjamin's obit, I searched for the children's names.
Rhoda's marriage is noted in Ancestry's database "Newspapers.com Marriage Index."
(see below) shows she married to Bennett Robinson
There is a family tree on Ancestry that says Rhoda's daughter is Susan Schwartzberg, and another child not named in that tree.

Interesting fact:  On the 1920 census Benjamin MAIMON (born Romania) states he has petitioned for naturalization.  Jennie (born Pennsylvania) is listed as an alien.  Jennie lost her citizenship when she married Benjamin.  The same thing happened to my husband's ggm.  That law changed in 1922.


Hope this info helps,

Sherri Bobish

Name: Miss Rhoda Thelma Maimon
Gender: Female
Residence Date: Abt 1951
Residence Place: Cliveden Hall , Germantown
Marriage Date: 25 Jan 1951

Spouse: Bennett Robinson


1905, 30 page Handwritten Document on Russian Japanese War, Jewish Conscripted #subcarpathia

LOUISE HAJDENBERG
 

A relative has a pamphlet that is very legible and handwritten in 1905 by his grandfather who was a Jewish soldier in the Russian Japanese War. It is written in what I believe is Russian and includes name places and dates of many Jewish soldiers who fought in the war, presumably many or all who died in it.  The author was an Ukrainian soldier, Morris Gershowitz.
i have presently a one page sample. I don't know how to add it to this post.
i could post all 30 pages for translation but there is a maximum of 5 pages allowed at a time. What do you suggest i do to get this information to this database and beyond while having it translated for the family as well?

Re: Help interpreting last name / patronymic on Lithuanian marriage record #records

Sally Bruckheimer
 

It is unlikely that Israel's father was Israel. Isn't the name in the next column Gert Izraelewicz (in Polish orthography)?. Since this is 1906, the father could be Gert son of Israel or Gert Izraelewicz with Fraizinger being the family name or Izraelewicz being the family name - and Izrael changed it to Fraizinger. It could be that his parents didn't marry civilly, so perhaps his mother's maiden name was Fraizinger. Only time and more records will tell. Perhaps if you look at the actual record, it will be clearer.

Towns in the region of Giessen, Germany #germany

ylaltein@...
 

I'm trying to decipher place names written in Hebrew by a mohel recording the names and places of boys he circumcised. All these locations are in the region of Giessen, in Hesse, Germany. 

I'm having difficulty deciphering the following towns: 

היער
לאשדערן

Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated!

Pogrom Polish / Lithuanian border around 1905-1906 #poland #lithuania

Ann Scher
 

I was told by my father that his grandfather's parents were killed in a pogrom on the Polish / Lithuanian border.

He (my great-grandfather) was born in Lachowitz or Minsk (have seen both on documents). He lived in Augustow prior to emigrating in 1906. I don't know where his parents were living at the time of the pogrom but assume it must have been in or near Augustow given it's proximity to the Polish / Lithuanian border.

Any information or suggestions about how to research records about a pogrom occurring around 1905-1906 in the Augustow area?

Thank you,

Ann Scher

Re: Help interpreting last name / patronymic on Lithuanian marriage record #records

pathetiq1@...
 

Hi Ann, 

The name (although unusual) is definitely patronymic first name. Apparently Leizer's father was named Shersha (Sharsha, Sarsa, Sersa etc.) At least that is what the document suggests.

Rabbinic dynasties #rabbinic

Gerson Sher
 

On Ancestry.com, I've come across some names that seem to be bits and pieces of rabbinic dynasty lineages. They are unusually marked by an image like this: 
Has anyone seen this? Does anyone know what is the source of these markings, who tracks them and puts them up? I'm guessing that they are of Hasidic origin but that's just a guess.

One odd thing about some entries in these lineages, especially the more ancient ones (they go back literally thousands of years) is that there are "photos" of the person. These are obviously not photos at all, but at best reconstructions. As such, they should have been labeled as such by the person who originally posted them. They show up in the trees of many folks who have come across these names, and in some cases with comments like, "amazing picture" etc. This is clearly bogus, and in turn, there's the old adage that where there's smoke, there's fire. It casts the whole tree into doubt. Personally, not knowing more about these lineage trees, I suspect that the links are genuine but the images are imaginary.
