Bialystok #general

Howard Margol <homargol@...>
 

Neil Rosenstein asks - Does any Russian census or revisions lists exist for
Bialystok?

Go to Miriam Weiner's website, www.rtrfoundation.org and do a database search for
Bialystok. Once there, you will see the most up-to-date index of Jewish Records
pertaining to Bialystok and which archive the records are stored in.

In order to obtain copies of the records, check out the Belarus SIG and JRI-Poland
databases. If they are not available there, you will either have to go to Grodno
and Bialystok or, hire a private researcher.

Where Have All the SLOBOTKINs Gone? #general

Well, I must say I was surprised to see not one mention of a SLOBODKIN in any
census of England and Wales >from 1871 till 1901. Furthermore, a search of the
Australian National Archives - which often yield up many secrets, also scored
'zero' when it came to SLOBODKIN.

There is a Rose SLOBODKIN who married in London in 1884 [probably to Hyman
MYERS]. I thought I would find her family in the 1881 census, but drew a blank.
So perhaps they passed through on their way to the USA [or perhaps even South
Africa]and Rose stayed to get married.

I come to the conclusion that the SLOBODKINs either changed their names in the UK,
perhaps never stayed here, or arrived after the last published census of 1901.

There is a family called SLOBODOKIN in London in 1901: A Slobodokin 37 Russia
Naturalised London Whitechapel Tailor Selina Slobodokin 30 Russia Naturalised.
The children Hyman [8] Morris [6] Esther [4] and Rebecca [2] were all born in
London.

There are also a few Russian-born SLOBODIANS and SLOBOTSKYs .

Had any SLOBODKINs emigrated to Australia under that name, it is very unlikely
that they would not be picked up by the archives. So where have all the SLOBODKINs
gone? Probably to the USA, or a very few may be lurking in other countries
including Scotland, South America etc.

Grandmother's Name??? #general

duniamac@telkomsa.net
Hi All,
Thank you all for the info on Musha/Masha and Cabel/Ja'akov. It has now left me
wondering as to what her real name was. On her son Harry's death certificate it
says 'Musha' and on Isaac's death certificate it says 'Meizie' now this has left
me somewhat perplexed as to how many more derivatives of this name there is and
then both DN had 'Cabel' as their father's name.
Now, my problem will be------------what name to ask for? that is that is:------
'Moosha verses Masha' and for my g'g'father 'Ja'akov verses Leibel or Koppel"
seeing as his name in English meant 'Charles' ????? [My mom and one aunt told
me.]I want to see if I will be able to find out more about them >from the Embassy.
Maybe I should just see if I can find out what cemetery they are in ??

dear Friends, my greatuncle George Crystal, his wife Rose Crystal and
my grandfather Joseph CRYSTAL/KRYSTAL were buried in Newark NJ in the
Grove St Cemetery. Their section was called Jersey Warshawers and they
were >from near WARSAW,Poland. Does anyone know anything about this
possible landsmen organization or do any records survive? I contacted
the Epstein funeral home that used to cover this area and they told me
they didnt even have any Crystal names, but I located them thanks to
faithful Jewishgen volunteers.
Another search, also in Newark: my great-grandfather Harris Rabinowitz
had a lifelong friend named Abraham Aaron Cohen, a rabbi. Abraham COHEN
lived in Newark NJ >from 1896-1930s or so, wife Cecil, children unknown.
In 1900 he lived on Prince St as a boarder with my great-grandparents
and another family.His wife Cecil was in hospital in 1910 or so. He
helped bury my great-grandmother Sima Rabinowitz who died in childbirth
1903, married my greatgrandfather Harris to his 3rd wife Rebecca
FELDMUS in 1920, and may have performed other marriages for a friends'
family. Has anyone ever heard of Abraham in Newark or nearby? I am
hoping that maybe I could find some descendants and he may have kept
some rabbinical records or journal.Abraham also worked as a census
taker in 1900, so check the top of your pages.
I am also gathering info on early midwives, 1900-1930, and birth
practices of the era, since that is my field in real life.

JGS Connecticut September 26 Meeting #general

Arthur Meyers <marciarthur@...>
 

Greetings,

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Connecticut will be meeting on Sunday,
September 26, 2004. Our meeting will take place at 2:00 p.m. at the Godfrey
Memorial Library 134 Newfield St. Middletown CT.

Our speaker Paula Schiller will present

Traveling to Ancestral Towns in Eastern Europe--

Paula recently visited ancestral towns in Western Ukraine in the Lviv (Lemberg)
region and the Chernivtsi (Chernovitz) region and then traveled to Krakow, Poland
and Vienna, Austria. This was not a research trip focusing on archives but rather
a unique opportunity to experience the places and people of the land of her
ancestors and to see the few remaining vestiges of Jewish communities. She will
talk about why she believes now rather than later is the time to visit Eastern
Europe and provide information on the logistics and unique challenges of doing
such a trip.

STEINHART #belarus

Aliza <alizam@...>
 

Dear All,
from a letter written by my great uncle to my father I have
learned that my great Grandfather Sholom Dov Ber STEINHART
born @1856 in Vitebsk went to live with an uncle on a Yishuv
near Plozk. I believe the word Yishuv refers to the Jewish
Agricultural Colonies. I have found names of a few
settlements in that area >from the Jewish Encyclopedia.com:
Kukhari, Dzhikovich, and Rodolobovka but have been unable to
find any information about those settlements. The letter
states that he studied at the Plotzke Yeshiva as well.
Can anyone confirm for me that Yishuv does refer to the
agricultural colonies?
Can anyone help me find information about the colonies in
the area of Plozk? I have already tried using the shtetlinks
at jewishgen.
Any information on the subject of the family name and towns
mentioned would be most appreciated.
Sincerely,

An interesting book and Korostyshev Records #ukraine

NFatouros@...
 

Recently, Moshe Davis, Judi Wagman, and I expressed interested in the
Korostyshev records.

I have just received a book I ordered a few days ago: ChaeRan Y. Freeze,
"Jewish Marriage and Divorce in Imperial Russia," Brandeis University Press,
2002, ISBN 1-58465-145-4.

Professor Freeze and I corresponded several years ago about the possibility
of getting >from GARF a certain large police file regarding my maternal
grandfather's first cousin, Gregor Zvi BELKOWSKY a Zionist activist. Both Professor
Freeze and her husband Gregory are familiar with doing research in Russia.
(As had Rochelle Rubenstein, who is my correspondent at the World Zionist
Organization, Professor Freeze told me that the cost of getting copies of that file
would be prohibitive, so I've almost given up trying to obtain it.)

As soon as Professor Freeze's book arrived, I began leafing through it and
noticed that on page 27, she says that, unlike the records of many Ukrainian
towns whose records were destroyed during WW II, the archival materials for
Korostyshev are unusually complete, dating >from the mid-nineteenth century to
1915. She observes that many Jews married locally, meaning that Jews of
Korostyshev married people >from such places as Zhitomir, Berdichev and Radomysl.

This makes sense to me, since I have long suspected a Korostyshe-
Berdichev connection betwen my maternal grandfather's BELKOWSKYs who lived in
Berdichev, through my grandfather's mother, a RAPOPORT before her marriage, who was
from Korostyshev.
Also, I have corresponded with an elderly Dr, Bell who lives in Dubna, (a
town north of Moscow). His original family name was BELKOWSKY. He was unable
to tell me much about his family's origins and said that few Russians or
Ukrainians took an interest in their genealogies, but he did say that he believe
his family, most of whom settled in Texas, originated in Radomysl. I told him
that I would consider him as a distant cousin until I learned otherwise!

In her remarks about the Korostychev metrical books Professor Freeze
mentions the marital connections of the GERSHENGORNs, TRAKTENBERGS, and RATTNERS.
And she notes another "network" including the VINOKURs TSIPONIUKs, and
ABRUMOVICHs, which overlaps with still another network of KAGANs, UMERSKINs, and
PEIGERs.

I look forward to reading this book with careful attention, as I know
already that it will add much to my knowledge of Jewish life and history in the
Ukraine. I believe it may be of interest to many Jewish Ukrainian genealogy
researchers even though their particular surnames may not appear in the book so I
urge you all to try to find it at a bookstore, or at college or university
library.

A recent message posted to the HERBARZ-L mail group (for Polish nobility
researchers) mentions the name of a lady in the Polish Scientific Association of
Zhitomir, who can do Korostychev research. Because Jewishgen forbids
recommending any researcher who does work for fee, I can't mention her name nor do I
know whether she would be willing to do research for Jewish genealogists. But
I hope that those of us who are interested in Korostychev can find a
researcher with whom they might be able to negotiate a fee at a group rate, much as
members of the Odessa group at Rootsweb did with an archivest in Odessa.

Re: Purrinson, Chaikin, Sokoloff search #ukraine

Hi Rochelle,
Some time ago I found my maiden name on the Baron de Hirsch land website
and the following people with these e-mails answered me. You may want to
try contacto@generaciohesmvc.com. I was directed to
majiefetz@bezeginit.net >from there. We had the same name but could not
connect if we were related. Good Luck

I am a new researcher who is trying to find information on my father's side
of the family. My grandfather, Morris Purrinson (born about 1887), lived in
Poltava Gburynia Perluk (according to my father). Not finding anything with
the name Perluk, I am inclined to believe that it may be Priluki. Morris
moved to Argentina (Baron de Hirsch land) as a teenager. He subsequently
brought over his fiancee, Rose Chaikin (father's name was Leo), who was from
the same home town. They emigrated to the US by way of Liverpool in 1910
with my paternal great grandmother, Ava Sokolff. The name when they came to
Ellis Island was spelled Purinzon. If anyone has information on these names
or can direct me to Baron de Hirsch records for Argentina, I would
appreciate it.
