Re: Vinitsky/Winitsky from Detroit, Mich. #usa

Steve Pickoltz
 

Additional info.  In looking over some of my family papers, ship manifest, Citizenship papers, etc, I have found spellings of my family as both Winitsky, Vinitsky and other spellings of each.

 

I have a wedding picture from Lorraine Chudler’s wedding dated 1952 along with on of her parents Lew and Ann Chudler from Detroit.

 

Pictures of a cousin Henrietta Rofsky Lane.  I don’t know if they are Detroit or Rochester, NY relatives.

 

A picture of my grandmother Ida (Ostroff) Winitsky with a sister Minecha (Ostroff) Dubin.  I have met a child of this couple, Bernie Dubin. He lived in Phila. and Cherry Hill, NJ., until his death.

 

Now for the good stuff.

Envelopes dated July 10, 1934 addressed to B. Slaben?? living at 2640 Pregree Ave., Detroit.   A second name  on this envelope is for a Venitzky, at the same address.   Another address for Venitsky is 330 Owens Ave., Detroit.  This street name is hard to read.

 

I hope this may connect to some of you Detroiter.

Re: RUBIN Family--Not Much Information #usa

Since it's such a common name, I would suggest doing a DNA test (if you haven't already). I have Rubin in my own tree, but haven't been able to connect any dots yet.

The other main sites you need to be on are FTDNA and 23andMe, otherwise you have to sit back and wait for relatives to do a test.

Re: Post-WWII Records for Ufa #records #russia

Mike Vayser,

I think what Rita meant to say is that Russian soldiers looked down on Jews and considered them poor soldiers.  She, herself, was not making that judgment. We know from the Warsaw Ghetto uprising and perhaps from thousands of other examples, as well as from your statistics that the claim of Jews having been poor soldiers/fighters isn't true.

Respectfully,

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #yizkorbooks #belarus

Bruce Drake
 

I never imagined that I would come across a Yizkor book excerpt about New York City’s famous Stage Deli which closed in 2012 after a run of about 75 years.

Actually, it is mostly about its founder, Max Asnas (spelled “Osnas” in this chapter from the book of Koidanov, now Dzyarzhynsk, in Belarus). The Stage became a magnet for celebrities ranging from actors and comedians to sports stars but in this account, Max’s sister Lilly, who was the cashier, tells the writer: ““They are not my kind of people. I have little in common with them. I think more highly of Avram Reisen and other Yiddish writers than of all the Broadway folks with whom Max associates. He feels like a fish in water with them. I feel a lot better being with my friends, with Koydenov folk.”

The excerpt recounts Max’s eventful journey to reach New York and appears in the book which was published in 1955. Asnas died in 1968.

Re: Documents from the Lithuanian Embassy in Riga (Latvia) #lithuania #latvia #records

Arlene Beare
 

Information about Lithuanian Jews who lived in Riga for 1914 and the beginning of 1915 are in the registers of Jew who asked for a residence permit in Riga for 1914-1915 (archival fond Riga Police Administration). There are also house registers of Riga till 1918 but it is very important to know the address where the person lived. The House Registers and the Fond for Riga Police are not online and you would have to write to the Archives with the Address for information from House Registers. 

 

The documents of Lithuanian Embassy in Riga are kept in Lithuanian archives.  Lithuania was a part of Russian Empire till 1918.  As Russ Maurer has said there was no Lithuanian Embassy in Riga till after 1919.

help finding a Russian poem #russia #translation

Aline Petzold
 

Hello all:
 I am wondering of anyone recognizes these lines written in of verse?  They were part of a letter to my grandmother, in Romania, in December 1915.  I am   told they are Russian and some kind of a love poem, perhaps describing the end of an affair.  I have tried to find  the original poem, but have not succeeded so far.  Thanks for your help.

To find documentation on survivors, I’ve done traces through the US Holocaust Museum. I believe you can also use the Arolsen Archives as well. I’ve been able to find some documentation on survivors on the Arolsen’s website before requesting a trace too. . If the individual remained in Poland, the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw (genealogy division) may have some records as well. Good luck!

Brenda,

After 20 years of searching for my great grandfather’s family when I learned that their
last residence in 1888 was Vilna before emigrating, I had not found anything for them in the ALD databases on Jewishgen.  Lo and behold just a few months ago someone suggested a different spelling of the name
And now I have found not only his siblings, but his father’s siblings in three towns in Lithuania.

Genealogy is a combination of luck and grey
matter, so be creative in the spelling and phonetics of the names you are researching.

I never found any listings anywhere for him or his wives (not for want to searching on every possible search engine)
So... I shall enquire about those archives.

Re: Documents from the Lithuanian Embassy in Riga (Latvia) #lithuania #latvia #records

Russ Maurer
 

Hello Luciana and Brenda,

I am replying to the group as this topic may be of interest to others.

Fund 383 in the Lithuanian State Central Archives (LCVA) contains documents related to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. A number of files in this record group contain documents from the embassy in Riga. From a distance it is impossible to know what is in these documents. I see the following in the catalog:
LCVA/383/7/35 Documents on the activities of the embassy in Latvia, 1919-1920
LCVA/383/7/72 ditto, 1920-1921
LCVA/383/7/94 Documents of the activities of Lithuanian embassies and consulates, 1919-1920 (not specific to Latvia)
LCVA/383/7/265 and 266 Documents on the activities of the embassy in Latvia, 1921-1922

There are other, similar files.

LCVA/383/15 contains applications for foreign passports submitted to the Riga embassy. The Jewish ones have all been indexed by LitvakSIG and can be searched in the All-Lithuania Database.

Independent Lithuania came into existence in 1919. Prior to that, there were no Lithuanian embassies, in Riga or anywhere else.

Finally, if you are a donor to any of the LitvakSIG research groups, you can use your login credentials on the LitvakSIG website to access our Collective Data page. Among the record groups on this page are several of direct relevance to those researching Lithuanian Jews with a Latvia connection. Included are extracts of Latvian vital records, extracts from the 1897 census, extracts from Riga house registers (interwar period), and more.

My mother's family were Blums in Boston.  Her father was from Plock guborniya in what is now Poland.  Their name was Bluman and those who came to the US became either Blum or Bloom.
