Record Books of Korostyshev (Korostoszow) Rabbinate 1840 - 1916 #ukraine

JUDITH WAGMAN
 

Dear Genners:
Apparently these books are in the Central State Historical Archive of
Ukraine in Kiev (TsGIA-U). Can anyone tell me how to access these books and
the 203 records they contain without physically traveling there. Maybe
someone has already accessed these records and made copies. I am new to
genealogy and am trying to learn how to access various resources. Thanks for
your understanding. Any suggestions regarding other resources containing
information about late 19th - early 20th century Korostyshev (Radomysl
district, Kiev province) and its inhabitants will be gratefully received.

Kherson archive #ukraine

Pavel Bernshtam
 

Hello!

Do somebody has an expirience with Kherson archive - whether direct
contact or via private researcher?
I have contacted them by telephone they gave me fax number to send a
request for search, but this fax consistently is not working. They
have not e-mail, and they told me that they can not answer me by fax -
it is too expensive for them, so they will answer me by regular mail.

Do somebody received in any way results for Berislav uyezd >from Kherson archive?
Can somebody recommend a private resercher with e-mail for Kherson archive?

Thank you!

Another milestone! Another thank you! #ukraine

Susan E. King <susan.king@...>
 

As many of you are aware, the "behind the scenes" team has been working
tirelessly (and endlessly) to implement our Central User Registration
Environment (CURE) and fine-tuning all the elements in this huge project.
CURE will enable us to better manage all our back office systems and ensure
integration of all JewishGen programs and projects into one central system.

Would you believe that we are fast approaching the 100,000 mark in user
registrations to JewishGen? An awesome number for a community that started
with slightly more than 100 people and one computer just 18 short years ago!
Now, to enable us to meet the user demand we are running 10 servers in a 24/7
secure co-location facility. It truly boggles the mind!

As busy as we have been behind the scenes, I wanted to take a moment to thank
all the many hundreds of our world wide volunteers who have contributed so
greatly to making JewishGen a vital community and recognized leader in the
field of Jewish genealogy.

We applaud their efforts and their dedication and commitment to this
organization. To those who have blessed us with their financial support
over the years, please know we are ever so grateful! We could not have gotten
where we are today without you.

My personal thanks go out to all the JewishGen Vice Presidents, the SIG
Leaders and the JewishGen Board for their significant contributions,
commitment and dedication to the missions and goals of this organization.
With your help we have achieved yet another milestone in our development. We
look forward to using our new tools to create the building blocks for an even
greater and more efficient JewishGen in the months and years to come.

Response to Arline Sachs experience at Central Archives #germany

Dr Donald Stein <dwsanes@...>
 

I appreciate Arlene's comments about the Central Archives; however, our
experience was exactly the opposite. Recognize that Arlene is an experienced
researcher and is probably familiar with the Central Archives. The same is
not our case. We had confirmed appointments for Wednesday afternoon. We had
submitted a list of names and locales that we were researching. On Wednesday
afternoon, the Archives were overcrowded and thus disorganized. There was
nothing available for either one of us and a lack of personnel to help. When
we finally identified the material for which we were researching, we had to
wait an hour before it was available. That which I did receive was in no
condition to have been useful without taking the material apart; that is, a
very small, inch and a half by two inch, tightly stapled copy of microfilm
records which had apparently never been examined before. It would have
required taking the staples out and using a strong magnifying glass. I did learn
that the records I seek would better be found in Stuttgart. For me it was an
exercise in futility. On the other hand we went to Beth Hatefutsoth in Tel Aviv
the next week where we were well received and spent a morning on their computers.

I am in need of a translation of the following transliterated Yiddish words.

Becker Aryeh and Samekh-Alef-Nun-Yud-Ayin (Kinder Peh-Vav-Nun Leah Becker),

Thanks,

Dear Kevin,

Your document says as follows:
Becker [surname], Aryeh and Sonya, Kinder fun Leah Becker
("children of Leah Becker")
Kolonia could be a misspelling for Kolomya, (a city in the Ukraine).

Shimel and Shloma #belarus

Fran Segall <FranSegall@...>
 

I could use some feedback on 2 questions, please:

1. Is there any relationship between the names Shimel and Shloma? On
the 1912 Grodno Voter's List, my ggrandfather's father is listed as
Shimel Brevda. Another entry, in a nearby town, is listed as a Shloma
Brevda, son of Khaim. I'm wondering if it's likely (or even possible)
that Shimel and Shloma were the same person. I've checked in the GNDB
but it was inconclusive.

2. This is more of a "mind-set" issue...If I were looking for someone
named John Smith, and one turned up in the right city, I certainly
wouldn't assume it was MY John Smith - there are probably thousands of
them! Yet, since I know my ggrandfather's name was Isaac Brevda, and I
found a listing for an Aisik Brevda in Volkavysk which is where my
grandmother came from, people (including some on this list) are telling
me that I've likely found my ggrandfather. Was everyone with the same
surname in the same town related? Were names THAT unique that they were
rarely duplicated? I guess I'm afraid of making an incorrect leap -
convince me, please!

Everyone on this list has always been so helpful - I'd really appreciate
some opinions on these.

Thank you.
