Early 19th Century Schnaittach Records #germany

SOL2516171@...
 

I am looking for information about a Gottlieb COHN/KOHN/KUHN, who may have
been born in Schnaittach, Bavaria in 1801. He may have had a brother Wolf
COHN/KOHN/KUHN, born in Schnaittach in 1812 or 1813. Eventually the family moved
to Cincinnati and spelled their name COHEN.

Gottlieb and Wolf's father may have been the brother of Aaron COHEN (KUHN),
who was born in 1758 in Schnaittach, the son of Moses COHEN (KUHN) (1733-1813)
of Schnaittach.

Does anyone have any Schnaittach records >from this period that could be
helpful? Any suggestions of where to look?

Re: Mormon Tapes vs. Archives #general

Karina Holthoff <holthoffk@...>
 

Hi There,
The Church of Latter-Day Saints usually microfilms all the records available
to them once they have obtained the permission >from the government. So it
could well be that the records were not available.

Kind regards
Karina

I have what is probably a naive question. I've recently been looking at
some microfilms that I ordered that are vital records >from Europe - in my
particular case they are in Hungary and Slovakia.

For a given town the Mormon library might have, for example, births from
1855 to 1885 and marriages >from 1888 until 1904.

Does this mean that vital records outside of those date ranges are not
available? Or does this mean that those are merely the records that the
Mormons obtained and if I were to contact the archives directly, there
would be many other vital records not on the films?

Thanks for the help.

Hebrew names, Bobruisk, Matlin, Kastenovitch. #general

lubarsky <lubarsky@...>
 

Since using my grandparents Russian names has been of little use in finding
information, I am wondering if hebrew names their parents of might be
useful: According to the betrothal contract my great-grandfathers (on my
mothers side) were Pinchas ben Yoseph HaCohen (Pinchas Matlin), and
Yehonatan ben Yisrael (maybe Kastenovitch). I have the name of one witness:
Eliyahu Yehosua ben David.

The wedding was Rosh Chodesh Kislev, 5663 (1902).

After much searching I found a photograph of Pinchas ben Yoseph HaCohen and
his wife whse name I think was Bela. This was probably sent to my grandparents
here in Connecticut >from Bobruisk much later, since my great-granparents
were quite elderly in the photo. Now I have faces to go with the names.

1850 Radoshkovich Revision List -Vileika Uyezd Project #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

I am pleased to report that the 1850 Radoshkovich Revision List with 1,262
names is now available on the Belarus SIG website. This is the third shtetl
within the Vileika uyezd (district) of Grodno gubernia that has been
completed. The other shtetls within the district are being done, as long as
voluntary donations continue to be received for the Vileika District
Revision List Project. When the 1850 list is complete, work will begin on
the 1834 Vileika uyezd Revsion List. The 1850 and 1834 lists are located in
the Vilna arc hive. The Revision Lists prior to 1834 are in the Minsk
archive. For those of you with an interest in this area, please continue to
make your contributions at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/belarus.html.

To view this new database, please go to the Belarus SIG homepage
http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/index.html and then go to the URL listed
under "What's New".

Researchers of families in the Odessa region may also find data >from the
Belarus SIG databases useful for their research, since families >from Belarus
were used to settle the agricultural colonies in the Ukraine.

Jews some left Radoshkovich and became farmers in Kherson, some in 1847 and
some in 1850, etc. In the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah
there is a book that may be of interest to those who are researching their
ancestors >from Radoshkovichi who became farmers. Unfortunately, the only way
to see the book is to go to SLC. It is not available on library loan, or for
transfer to a local FHC, as far as I know.

Book Number 947.717 A33b:

TITLE: Fond 252, Odessa Office for Foreign Settlers in Southern Russia
(1806, 1807, 1814-1834, 1843, 1850): guide

CONTENTS: Indexed guide to 1050 files in three inventories in collection
(fond) 252, "South Russian Foreign Settler's Odessa Office, 1806-1850," with
supplement. Includes information on mainly German, Swedish, and Jewish
inhabitants and colonies in Kherson province, Russia; now Odesa district,
Ukraine.

The original Records are located in the State Archives of Odessa Region,
Odessa, Ukraine.

ZWANG #general

Logan J. Kleinwaks <kleinwks@...>
 

I have just learned that my great-grandmother Sarah PETERS (1885,
Kutno, Poland-1923, NJ, USA) was the daughter of Lewis PETERS and Jennie
ZWANG. I would appreciate hearing >from any researchers of the ZWANG
surname, though, unfortunately, I do not yet know where Jennie was from.
She did immigrate to America and died in New Jersey, after 1923. She had
a close relative Hyman ZWANG who served in and survived WWI, and also
lived in the Newark, New Jersey area around that time.

Thanks very much.

Ladies and Gentlemen: My family lore has it that my great-grandfather,
Benjamin Ora Dorn, born Spartansburg Pa., 1838, was Dutch and Jewish. His father was
Sullivan Dorn, born Princetown, N.Y., 1797. Sullivan's parents father may
have been John Dorn and Maria Van Aken, origins unknown. That is all I know. Is
there anywhere I might look or anything you could provide me with to aid in my
quest? Thank you. Thomas Bullen.
