And the winner is...

Lyduokiai! AKA Nidoki, Liduokiai, Liduokyay, Lyduokių, Lyduokliai
It's listed in the JewishGen Gazeteer, not in the Jewish Communities Database.
A tiny village 8 miles from Ukmerge. In 1874 it must have been something out of the Sholom Alechim stories.
It's proximity to Ukmerge, Sirvintos and other towns where my family lived clinched it.

My deepest thanks to everyone who responded.

Regarding the wedding ring on the man's left hand:  years ago, when my daughter became engaged, my uncle offered her the wedding rings of his parents (my grandparents).  Inside were inscribed two dates.  My mother explained to me, that it was the tradition of the Jews in Berlin, that when you became engaged, you wore the ring on the ring finger of your right hand, and when you became engaged, the date of the marriage was engraved inside the ring and you wore it on the ring finger of your left hand.

Hi, Sherri!

Thank you for your response!  A good person to search on would be Morris Mulbogart born 1892 in Manhattan Ward 10, in the 1910 census.  Occupations, marital status, immigration status all marked "Un".  About 95 men whose ages range from teens to 60s.  I suspect these are homeless men.   It's interesting about the baseball team, though.

Mary,

If you give us one of the men's name, age, and birthplace (preferably a not too common name) than we can look at the 1910 census page.

At www.fultonhistory.com I found a mention in a 1903 NYC newspaper for an amateur baseball team called The Park Strollers.

Are there occupations listed for any of these men?  What is their age range?  Seeing the census sheet will be helpful.

Hello Elena,

I've posted a picture of my great-grandmother and my great-aunt Roza Gartstein on ViewMate at the following address: https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM88526. 
Could you please take a look at the picture? I would like to find out if my ancestors are in any way related to your genealogical research.
Thank you.

Re: Minsk gubernia town - Chuty, Huta or Choota #belarus

Krzysztof Witaszek
 

Hello
 Huta (Huty) is a Polish word for the smelter or ironworks. There were hundreds of small villages with that name in the area where once was the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (before the partitions of Poland in the end of XVIIIc)    .
Look into the Geographic Dictionary of the Polish Kingdom (Słownik geograficzny Królestwa Polskiego) and you find four such villages in the Minsk area, in particular Ihumen  county. 
 
 
    (On the left bottom page)  
 
  (The dictionary was written in XIXc, I  don't know if it was ever translated into English)  
 
 
 Today's name for Ihumen is Chervyen  (Чэрвень) some 40 km east from Minsk.
There are other Huta's located  in Minsk Gubernia,  but more distant from Minsk.

Re: Information Wanted regarding the Legion Etrangere Civile #france

Paul Gottlieb
 

Did you search this database :
https://www.memoiredeshommes.sga.defense.gouv.fr/fr/arkotheque/client/mdh/engages_volontaires_etrangers/resus_rech.php

Thank you for your kind response. My father's name is not on the database you sent, even with different spellings.
I'm quite sure at this point that the "Legion Etrangere Civile" membership card that he had (which looks quite official with his name, address, profession and nationality) is bogus. But I am still curious if other refuges in Paris sought (or forged) such documentation in order to avoid internment or deportation.

Marcia,

Perhaps this site, which lists the towns & villages in Saros County, will be helpful in finding "Felrener."  The list is alphabetical.  Assume that "Felrener" is some form of misspelling, and check the list for something close to that. 
http://www.hungarianvillagefinder.com/HVFIndex2/41_SAROS.html
Many towns had different names in various languages, including Yiddish variants.  Those variants can be found at:

Re: Dobromil research guidance #ukraine

Sherri Bobish
 


David,

Have you tried a soundex search on the surname?  If you are doing an exact search than even one letter difference in the spelling can prevent finding the family.

It is also possible that there just aren't extant records for the person and/or time frame you seek.  Dobromil is very close to my ancestral town of Ustrzyki Dolne, from which records are almost totally non-existent.

Another option is to search for all records from the town, and look through them for your family name.

Re: Resources for Jewish Refugees who went to Uruguay #lodz

Hi

The first step should be to search for documents with more information in Uruguay.
The second step should be to search for passenger manifests (familysearch, CEMLA).
If she has got more details from this sources she can start the research in Europe.

There are the records of the civil registry office and the censuslists (1926-1936) for Paris online.
for the time in question birth records are not online, but marriage and death records are online.

Genocide and Resistance Research Center of Lithuania Launches New website #announcements #lithuania #records

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Genocide and Resistance Research Center of Lithuania launched a new website with list of anti-Soviet resistance participants. The website is: https://www.laisveskovos.lt/.  It is all in Lithuanian so a translation service will be required such as https://translate.google.com/  or https://www.deepl.com/translator

 

The following was translated by Google translate:

 

“Armed resistance to Soviet occupation was the strongest action of Lithuanian civil society in the history of the state. Participants in guerrilla warfare included not only armed fighters (guerrillas) but also individuals outside direct armed structures: guerrilla liaison officers and supporters (although in the face of repression against guerrilla supporters, liaison officers and supporters were often forced to retire and take up arms in the long run). The guide provides individuals belonging to all the above-mentioned groups of guerrilla warfare participants. The main purpose of the guide is to provide the public with information about Lithuanian citizens who have joined the fight against the Soviet occupiers and who have sacrificed their lives for the freedom of Lithuania in the battlefield, camps and Lithuanian prisons.”

 

“The information will be loaded into the help in several steps. About 13,000 names are currently listed: those killed on the battlefield, those sentenced to death by shooting and those who died in prisons. In the later stages, it is planned to announce the names of the survivors of the partisan war: the names of the repressed, but who returned from the camps and the partisans who escaped, the liaison officers. The manual will be constantly updated and updated.”

Margolioth/Margulies rabbinic family from Galicia #rabbinic #galicia

Dan Rottenberg
 

I’ve been trying for years to connect my Margulies relatives from Zbaraz, Galicia (now Ukraine) to the rabbinic Margolioth dynasty, also of Galicia..
Two of my Margulies relatives told me years ago that the family was descended from rabbis. Also, R. Meir Wunder of Jerusalem, the authority on Galician rabbinical genealogies, once told me himself that everyone from eastern Galicia named Margolioth/Margulies is related. Thanks to Gesher Galicia's database, now I think I see a possible connection.
The house in Zbarazh (#131) where my Margulies relatives lived for several generations housed among others a Joseph Margulies, who died in Zbarazh in 1828 at the age of 70. On that basis, as well as naming patterns in subsequent generations, I have concluded that this Joseph Margulies was my great-great-great-great-great-grandfather.
Now I have reason to speculate that this Joseph Margulies may be identical to someone on the Margolioth rabbinic tree: Yosef b’Alexander Sender Margaliot.
Yosef's father Alexander Sender Margolioth (1730-1802) is known to have served at some point as rabbi in Zbaraz, having succeeded his father in law Zvi Hirsch (surname unknown); and Alexander’s son Mordecai Margolioth (1752-1818) was also at some point rabbi of Zbaraz. So the Margaliot dynasty did have a presence in Zbaraz in the 18th Century, about the time that my Joseph Margulies (1758-1928) was born.
Here’s my question: Can anyone tell me more about Yosef b’Alexander Sender Margolioth? 
(Yosef's name does not appear in Neil Rosenstein’s The Unbroken Chain. But it does appear on a chart provided to me in 2005 by Dr. Yehuda Klausner of Jerusalem. It also appears on a tree chart by Randy Schoenberg on geni.com)
Thanks to anyone who can provide help or insight you can provide. This could be a big breakthrough for me.

Re: Malvine Weiss transferred to MAUTHAUSEN 14 April 1945, then where? #hungary #holocaust

Hi Emma,
You may ask for information at https://memorial-archives.international/en/entities/show/546f87be759c02ca678ccbd4
As you may see, they have more on Malvin Weiss born Jan. 25, 1913 in Onod. Malvin's prisoner number is indeed 62225 transferred from Ravensbruck to Venusberg.
I think that the best way is to ask for  information at https://arolsen-archives.org/en/search-explore/inquiries/information-for-relatives// From my knowledge, they always reply.

Re: Minsk Jewish names, #names #belarus

Gerald and Margaret
 

Your next step may be to find someone in Minsk to look through some archives for you.   I suggest you contact The Together Plan, a charity based in London and Minsk.  It helps Jewish Belarussians to help themselves, eg training for and getting work.  One of their projects is genealogical research in Belarus on behalf of  people who live elsewhere.  They have the huge advantage of speaking the language , and often Russian, as well as understanding their Government's bureaucracy.  
Have a look at wwwthetogetherplan.com, and go to Archive research.
