Hi,


I am researching the roots of my family - RASHKES –(RASKAS) >from Lithuania.

Family tradition describes Rachel who came at the age of 90 to Israel and is
buried at Mt. of olives. Her son Leizer had Haim-Shlomo, who fathered my’s
grandfather David.

Another son of Leizer (grand child of Rachel), Avraham Ezra, immigrated to
the US. He spent some time there, working at a dairy farm of family
relatives in St. Louis.

If you have Rashkes roots >from and can help me - please reply to my message.

I will be happy to share the data I have, names, dates and photos, with
anyone interested.

I recently obtained a letter my father sent in 1948 to a nephew in Israel.
In that letter, he explained that the Palestine Foundation Fund (42nd

this Israeli relative.

I would like to search that file of this Fund, to determine additional
information regarding my other family members it might have identified in
post-World War II Europe.

Does anyone have any such experience or thoughts?

Schelly Dardashti <dardasht@...>
 

I am posting this request >from fellow Zaverezhye (Belarus) descendant Sophia

Chene was born in 1923 in Zaverezhye (Z), across a narrow dirt road from
Vorotinschtina (V), very close to Mogilev (M), Belarus. Both Z and V were
very small, descendants hard to find.
They are looking for information on both possible survivors and other

lists. Yad Vashem is being consulted, and Sophia has just written to the
Holocaust Survivors Registry.
They are looking for descendants of ETINGON (Levite), ROCHLIN, BEDINERMAN
with roots in Z, V and M, Bobruisk, UK, Germany and elsewhere, and also for
information on possible survivors as described below.

Aron ETINGON (Levite) lived in Zaverezhye, all 5 children born there to wife
Sonia (Sheindl). Given names of 4 daughters unknown.
(1) Daughter ? m. BEDINERMAN in Mogilev, son Alter BEDINERMAN m. Golde

(2nd) Chaya ROCHLIN (5 children), d. 1929,

1. Meir Leib (Miron) ETINGON, b. 1917, soldier in
Plotsk; wounded, hospital several times. A last letter >from Yasnaja
Poljana. Officially missing.
2. Mera (Mere) ETINGON, b. 1915, lived, worked
Minsk, sewing factory "Krupskoy." Believed taken to Minsk Ghetto, but name
not on official lists. Officially missing.
3. Hinda (Galia) ETINGON, b. 1920, veterinarian,
working Voroshlovograd, Voroshilovogradskoi Oblasti, Sovchoz "Chemuchina."
Evacuated Rostov-on-Don. Possibly false passport, Russian name, possibly to
Germany. Officially missing.
4 Chena ETINGON, b. 1923, m. Gezel SHAPIRO (d.
Israel) in Baku. (He was born Salopkovtsi, Kamenetsk Podolsk, UKR; father
Naftali, mother Shifra MANDEL, rabbi's daughter). Lives Netherlands and
Israel.
1. Sophia SHAPIRO-COHEN, Netherlands
2. Boris SHAPIRO, Netherlands

Leib ROCHLIN, who owned or worked in the Jewish Hospital in Mogilev,
surrounded by apple tree orchard, used to finance hospital. Died young,
leaving 3 daughters, pregnant wife. Home burned in pogrom, everything lost.
Mother soon died, 4 daughters placed in orphanage arranged by Mogilev
ROCHLIN relatives.
Chaya's sisters:

before WWII.
(2) Dvora ROCHLIN m. ?, lived Bobruisk; died during WWII; no
children.
(3) Tzila ROCHLIN m. Lipa KAGANOV, lived Minsk, 3 children
(Fanja, Lyova, Ilya). 1941 family evacuated to Kuibishev/Samara with niece
Chena ETINGON above, who was studying in Minsk. All survived.

All Genners who might find a familiar connection with ETINGON or ROCHLIN
(particularly as a maiden name of a grandmother or great-grandmother in the
UK or elsewhere) or BEDINERMAN may contact me.

With best wishes, as always, to a wonderful group of dedicated people around
the world.

Dear Fellow Genners,

We'd like to call your attention to new articles in the Belarus SIG online
newsletter:

Kelly Modlin has penned what may be the final chapter in the search for his
late wife's roots. Previous articles detailed the poignant reunion with her
long-lost brother, as well as the discovery of a sister-in-law living nearby
in Israel. The story is often heart-rending, and informative.

Also, see a beautifully-illustrated vignette on Irving Berlin, thanks to
Vitaly Charny, who has contributed several articles on noteworthy Jews of
Belarus.

Ruslander/Stolowski #belarus

Sally M. Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

I have put this off for many years, but finally I have decided to make a
plea for help with a very difficult problem.

My Ruslander family shows up in the area of Augustow, Poland about 1840.
According to family lore (and the name) they came >from somewhere 'more
Russian' than the Kingdom of Poland or 'central Russia' , I assume Belarus
today. One of the families they married repeatedly (I guess relatives of
some sort) were Stolowski, so I further guess that the area of that town is
where they come from.

Ephraim Moshewitz was the father of Sholom, Abraham, and Aron Ruslander.
Ruslander would not be their surname in Belarus, as it identifies them as
coming >from there. Ephraim's wife was Michli. The 3 brothers were all
family men by 1840, the oldest having been born soon after 1800. I recently
learned that Ephraim was murdered (in Belarus or Poland I don't know), but
about the mid-1830's or earlier as the first grandson was named after him at
that time.

So, how do I find them? The All Belarus Database is very thin that early,
and with no surname, I have little to go on. Any suggestions would be
appreciated.

Research at Latitude: 52°51' N, Longitude: 24°00' E #belarus

Batya Olsen <batyao@...>
 

Hello,

My grandfather was born in "Tichovlia, Russia" in 1883, according to his
U.S. Naturalization Papers. That was in Grudno Gubernia. I believe it
is modern day Tikhovolya, Belarus (also spelled Tsikhovolya or
Cichavolja) Latitude: 52°51' N, Longitude: 24°00' E. It seems to be
about 20 miles SW of Vaukavysk and about 20 miles NW of Pruzhany, very
close to the Polish border. I think it is in the Volkavisk
administrative district.

Is there any Belarus BOF group or Belarus SIG project whose research
includes this area?

I wanted to thank Edward Rosenbaum for the great search tool to access the Belarus
Static Index. (And all the other work associated with the Belarus SIG Web site.)

I was able to find information on one relative for the first time, and also just
found out my grandfather had a sister who died at 1. (Both were in the LDS
David-Horodok Vital Records.)

It is a fantastic search tool.

I'm going to show my thanks and support by making a donation to the Belarus SIG
General Fund and I encourage others to do the same. It is so exciting to see my
ancestors names pop up on the computer screen. I'm looking forward to it happening
more often.

Thanks again.

We have the 1818 data on the way for Novogroduk and I have had a wonderful
response >from people who are interested and others who are willing to
translate, but this group does not have a leader.

The role of the Shtetl Research Leader for Novogroduk is to continue to
identify and coordinate people who are interested in researching ancestors
in this Belarus community (and county) that was once a part of Russia,
Lithuania, Poland.......

The perfect individual for the job would have ancestors >from Novogroduk, be
comfortable at using the computer, internet and email, and have some working
knowledge of how to do research. The person would be patient!!!!! and
persistent!!!!!

You are out there. I know you are. Please read this posting and send me an
email.

Waiting to hear >from YOU!

Success with Vilnius Revision List #belarus

Flo Elman
 

Dear Fellow Belarus researchers,

The new revision lists on the Belarus site are incredible. We are so
fortunate to have the wonderful volunteers who prepare all this material.
Actually, I found family in the Dolginov list, & I'm quite ecstatic
(although still in the gray zone). My great-grandfather (surname
GOTLIBOVICH) & his brother (surname PRESSMAN/ PRESMAN) had different
surnames, & the assumption has always been that it was his brother who had
changed his name to Presman. What I found in searching the lists was the
brother's surname but the *first names* all matched those in my
great-grandfather's family. (Cousins? Predecessors???) I may have to
consider that the Presman name was the original. Doing East European
genealogy is a real challenge! However, the new information goes back to
1780 (farther if I count those who had no dates), & I expect it will help me
to explore further. This is the closest I've had to a breakthrough in the
name puzzle in the last 15 years!

The surnames I'm researching are all interconnected (listed below), but I
haven't yet been able to make the linking connection. If any of them hit a
chord with you, I'd be grateful for any leads.

Thanks Belarus workers,
