Dear Genners

Thanks to this site I have become a member of the *Turka* group and found
family members of ours in Israel.
Many thanks also to Alexander Sharon.
Now I know that my grandfather had two siblings, one brother and one sister
who went to the " free world ".
I am looking now for any descendants of Perla PELECH and Majer MOSZKOWITZ
from Turka on the Stryj.
If anyone has any information or has my ggrandparents in their family tree,
please e-mail me at boaz@iinet.net.au
I would also be very greatful for any information on how I could find out
when and how they entered the USA or Canada etc.
Thanks, Boaz

Kollel Volin in Jerusalem #ukraine

Ginsburg, Paul W <GinsburgP@...>
 

I have recently read about a Kollel Volin in Jerusalem.
Does anyone know if this kollel is still operational, and
if so who runs it (i.e. is it affiliated with any group)?

Finally, if it is operational, would anyone have a mailing
address?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I've found a passenger manifest that has me a bit confused as to the
place names.. The country column has names like Kurland, Minsk, Wilno -
are these actually countries? As far as I know, Minsk is NOT a country.
The one for my relative says Wilno for the country and Krewa for the
city, and even with the ShtetlSeeker I'm having some trouble figuring
out where these are.

Any help would be appreciated.

Kurland (Courland, Kurlandia, Kurzeme), Minsk and Wilno are historical
regions (Kurland was a Duchy) and not countries names.
In Jewish Genealogy there are often mentioned and cited since those were
names of the Russian Empire Guberniyas >from 1797 to 1918.

Krewa (Krewo, Kreva) is known currently as Krevo, Belarus.

Town is historically associated with Oszmiany district of Wilno Guberniya.

When I've been initially involved with my wife's family ABRAMSON research,
I've been also told that they all were >from Vilna >from where one branch of
the family was transplanted to Lodz. As we have started to receive copies of
the vital records >from the Polish archives, I've discovered that Krewo and
Oszmiany were the birthplaces and playgrounds of our ABRAMSONs. Later family
members have studied in Vilno University (know during the interwar period as
Stefan Batory University) and perished in Vilna Ghetto, but roots were in
the provincial towns.

Wilno was just the name of the Province (Guberniya) and it appears that the
legend of being originated >from Vilna city and being at the same time a
descendant of the Vilna Gaon are very much alive.

As the curiosity: Krevo, a sleepy provincial shtetl used to be once a very
important historical place. I was this town were in 1385 the union known as
Union of Krewo have been signed between Poland and Lithuania cementing
establishing of the Commonwealth of The Both Nations.

For Olomouc [Olmutz] - see Bohmor {SIG] #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Aaron Zelcer >from Rehovot is planning to visit Olomouc soon and asks for
advice.
Olomouc [known as Olmutz, when it was part of the mighty Habsburg Empire,
whoseImperial capital was Vienna] was a district town in Moravia and an important
Jewish centre in the 19th century.
Jews had settled in Olmutz before the 11th century and in the mid-1800s they
returned after being expelled for hndreds of years. A flourishing community
developed, with many illustrious, intellectual members, until it was decimated
in the 20th century.

This kind of question is ideally suited for posting on BohMor SIG :
http://www.jewishgen.org/bohmor - where we have plenty
of keen members, some may indeed have visited Olomouc [Olmutz] recently .

BohMor is the Jewishgen SIG which deals specifically with Vienna and
Austria, as well as the one-time Habsburg Crown Lands of Bohemia and Moravia,
where many of the Austrian Jews originated. Under the Habsburgs, Vienna, with a
population of just under 200,000 Jews, was the centre of a huge Empire,
making it one of the most important Jewish cities in the whole world. The BohMor
website and SIG has, in fact, a much broader coverage than its name suggests.
I hope that, as a result of this posting, many more "Viennese", Bohemian
and/or Moravians will join Bohmor.
