Re: Telekhany #belarus

Gene Warech <operawriter@...>
 

A while ago there was some discussion of the town of Telekhany (and the
nearby town of Lahysyn (sometimes called Logoshin), whether they were
the same or whether Telekhany still existed.
Telekhany still exists as a separate town under the name of Celjachany
but at the same location (52 31N, 25 51E). It also appears with a
Polish name which would be transliterated as Telekhany on another map
I found on the internet.

Anita Frankel <frankel2@...>
 

Hello genners,

I would be very grateful for help translating the birth record
of Perla AGRODOWSKA who was born in 1872 in Dabie, Russian
Poland. There is some additional writing inserted to the left of the
text that looks interesting.

The number is VM3626 and can be found at

Please respond directly to me, not to the list.

Thanks in advance.

Recommendation for digital imaging services #general

Mervin Rosenbaum <mervinr2@...>
 

The Greater Houston Jewish Genealogical Society recently had over 50
microfilm reels of the Jewish Herald-Voice, covering the years >from 1908 to
1992, converted to digital images on CD. This was done primarily to make the
data more readily available to volunteers transcribing it into the index of
life cycle events database(now online for the years 1908-1921).

The work was done by a company in Minneapolis. We are quite pleased with the
results. The job was done at relatively low cost and involved working with
many low quality reels. Many times reels had to be rescanned using
different parameters to achieve satisfactory results. If any person or
organization is considering a similar project, I will be pleased to furnish
the name of the company and appropriate contacts.

What would be the Hebrew equivalent of Louis? #germany

levyduffy@...
 

Hello GerSIGers,
The name Louis crops up several times in the families of Ruben LEVY and
Isaack LEVY, whom I believe were brothers.

Ruben's eldest son Levin (b. 1817 in Moisling), died in Hamburg in 1860. In
the death register he is recorded as Louis.

The eldest son of Ruben's fourth son, Siegmund, was named Louis (b. 1854 in
Hamburg).
Isaack's eldest son was Louis (b. 1844 in Segeberg)

Can anyone tell me the likely Hebrew equivalent of Louis, i.e. the name of
the father(s) of Ruben and Isaack? Rgds,

Justin Levy Dublin, Ireland levyduffy@eircom.net

Dear List
When I received copies of KOPPENHAGEN BMD's >from the Bonn Standesamt
yesterday, I noticed that there are two witnesses (friends of the family it
appears) recorded on the birth certificates.

Two seems a bit excessive. Can anyone tell me why two witnesses were required
to register a birth?

BTW if anyone is seeking certificates >from Bonn, Mr. Michael Gottschlich is
the person to contact. Bonn records begin in 1798. B & M certs. cost 7,00
Euro. D certs. 5,00 Euro. Mr. Gottschlich is helpful, but he is not fluent

The Arenda System Research Project #galicia

Alan Weiser <alanboy@...>
 

Because the arenda system(a system of leasing) significantly affected
the socioeconomic life of Jews in Polish and Lithuanian frontier lands
from about the 14th century, the Kolomea Research Group (KRG) has
commenced The Arenda Research Project (TARP). The objectives of TARP
are to:
1. Describe the arenda system
2. Identify arendars (one who purchased a lease)
3. Identify what lands, industrial activities, and service
establishments were covered by arendas.
4. Identify the terms and conditions of arendas
5. Describe the socioeconomic impacts >from arendas
6. Provide clues to determine if one's ancestors may have been
arendars.

A report of initial research has been posted at
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/kolomea/kolomad.htm, click on
Arenda under History in the subject index to reach the report.
Research is continuing and needs volunteer researchers especially some
with Polish, Lithuanian, and Ukrainian language skills with English.
See the noted report for details on the project and contact
information. You do not have to be a member of KRG to participate in
this important project.
