Town of Banik in Galicia #galicia

Rony Shaham <rshaham@...>
 

Dear SIGers
I will very much appreciate any help to identify the present day name of
the town/shtetl referred to as "Banik (in) Galitzien" on the Hebrew
tombstone inscription posted on viewmate. To see it please click on the
link below
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=3082
I was not able to find Banik or Bonik or Bunik (the Hebrew/Yiddish
letters are "beit"-"alef"-"nun"-"yod"-"kof") or any reasonable
equivalent using the ShtetlSeeker, so I assumed it was the "Yiddish"
name of the shtetl and I posted the inscription on Viewmate and this
query on Galicia-SIG and Ukraine-SIG, to see if someone can help me with
the present day Polish/Ukrainian name of the town >from previous
knowledge or any written sources other than ShtetlSeeker.

Greetings,
In 1992 I found this document in Salt Lake City at the Family History
Center. I did not note where I found it! What document is this and where
might I find it again - under what heading at the Family History Center?

archive of the postings to this Belarus SIG #belarus

Larry Schenker asked "Is there an archive of the postings to this Belarus
SIG that goes back several years? If Yes, where is it located and can it be
searched?"

In http://www.jewishgen.org/ click - under Research - the link to
"Databases"

In the new page, under "General" click on "The JewishGen SIG Lists message
Archives - 1998-2003"

This will take you to "JewishGen SIG Lists Archive"
http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~sigspop

"JewishGen SIG Lists Archive" contains "all messages posted to the JewishGen
Special Interest Group (SIG) Mailing Lists since July 1998". You may search
by keywords in all SIG lists or in a specific one. If you leave the 'word or
words' to be searched in blank, you get a batch list of up to 500 messages
for the selected date range. Instructions are given on the page.

I am not sure if the postings of the day are instantly available... I
believe they are added in small batches and the most recent postings take
some time to enter the archive. Perhaps somebody may clarify this.

Hope this helps!

Interestion materials on russian genealogy websites #belarus

Pavel Bernshtam <pavelb@...>
 

Hi!

I have found a number of interesting materials on russian language
genealogy sites.

The site http://petergen.com/spiski.shtml contains a lot of people lists
for various places, times, gubernias.

I have selected a number of them (not all), which contains jewish surnames:

1. Vitebsk gymnasia graduates 1808-1883
http://petergen.com/history/witgim.shtml
2. officials in Minsk gubernia 1900
http://petergen.com/history/pmin1900.htm#gub
3 Mogilev gymnasia graduates 1814-1909
http://petergen.com/history/moggim.shtml
4. Kharkov religious officials 1914
http://petergen.com/bovkalo/sp/charkov1914.html


All these pages in Russian,[MODERATOR NOTE: There is an English language
version of the home page] and I, unfortunatly, do not have a time to
translate/transliterate them, but these resources IMHO should be
included to the corresponding SIGs static pages.


BTW. I have fourd online translator/transilerator:

Re: Surname "Regensburg" #general

Joel Stearman <dpastear@...>
 

Hoping to obtain information regarding Moses Regensburg (could have been
"berg") husband of Jeanette Liffman father of Ludwig (Louis on
naturalization papers) and Edward.

I have gone as far back as the 1860 Census where all but Moses are
listed. The information I have so far is that they were >from Frankfurt
and arrived here in the late 1850's however I cannot seem to obtain
information regarding their departure >from Germany (Prussia at the
time.) I have searched the German to America with no success and they
came before Ellis Island was opened. Any ideas?

Eileen Regensburg

Sorry Eileen and Group:

I misread the year of arrival in Eileen's posting.

The Alpha index I cited only goes up to July 1826. The manifests cover
the period, so it would be necessary to have a tighter idea of the time
frame for arrival, in order to do a date-by-date, ship-by-ship search.

Maybe there is some date or ship information on the naturalization
documents which would help.

Eileen:

You probably should consult NARA Microfilm Publication M261,which is an
alphabetical index of passenger srrivals in New York, NY, >from 1820 to
1846.

Additionally, NARA Microfilm Publication M261 comprises 675 rolls of
microfiled passenger ship manifests for the period Jan. 7, 1820 (when the
first law requiring such manifests took effect) to July 17, 1897.
Unfortunately, there is no index for the period June 1846-June 1897.

Re: Boxing - Lower East Side #general

A question yesterday was "Would anyone know of a good resouce for
Jewish Boxers in the Lower East Side, Manhattan during the 1920's -30's?
My grandfather and one of his brothers boxed in a building called the
"Christen Dora House" (spelling uncertain). I understand the building
housed the NYC Welfare Department in the 1950's and 60's."

I believe that it's the Christadora House. Although I did not find any
specific mention of boxing, go to

more information. There are other references to it on Internet search

Re: finding friends/relatives thru Israel Radio #general

Shalom, Khaim.
It is on "reshet bet" (95.5 FM), 15:45 - 15:55 every day. They have
telephone # they tell it several times during the program. I don't
remember it now, but you can listen it tomorrow.
Good luck,

I hope that some of you out there can help me. I have heard that there
is a program on one of the channels of Israel Radio where people try to
trace friends or relatives with whom they have lost contact at some point
in time.
This even includes people who try to trace people who may have survived
the Holocaust and have been "missing" for fifty years or more.

I do not know what the success rate of the program is, but I do believe
that there have been occasional successes.

My question is, do any of you know of this program? At which times and on
what station does it appear? This information would be very useful to me
and maybe even to orher Israelis involved in genealogical researches.
