Re: Central archive for the History of the Jewish People #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

I would like to thank Pavel for sharing this information with the SIG. The
CAHJP in Jerusalem is a valuable resource for Belarus SIG members. In the past
we have obtained the 1912 Minsk marriage and divorce registers >from the CAHJP
and that data was extracted, translated, and added to the SIG website
http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/minsk_1912_marriages.htm and
http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/minsk_1912_divorce.htm.

In addition, the SIG has obtained the 1919 to 1937 Minsk Marriage register
from the CAHJP. One of our SIG members, is in the process of extracting and
translating these records and they will eventually appear on the SIG
website.

Thanks to SIG member Itzhak Epstein and his sister, I received a microfilm
with the 1927 to 1935 notebooks of Rabbi Abraham Gruszko of Pinsk. These
notebooks record the marriages, births, and divorces in Pinsk. The notebooks
are written in either Hebrew or Yiddish and I will know for sure after I
return >from the US Holocaust Memorial Museum later today. Hopefully, we can
find volunteers to translate these notebooks so we can add these vital
records to the All Belarus Database.

If Pavel and other SIG members in Jerusalem could work together to compile a
catalog of the records >from shtetls now in Belarus that are in the CAHJP, it
would provide an excellent research tool for those people >from the SIG who
will be attending the International Jewish Genealogy Conference in Jerusalem
in July 2004. The catalog will also provide us with what records we
might want to extract and add to the All Belarus Database. Please remember
that the records for Belarus shtetls will be found in both the Polish and
Soviet Union sections at the CAHJP because records are organized based on
pre-1939 borders.

Patronymics #belarus

Larry Schenker <lpsca@...>
 

Can anyone please help me with a clear understanding of what Patronymic
means?

I have read the dictionary meaning, but still do not completely
understand what Patronymic means.
"Patronymic, a.,n. (name) derived >from father or ancestors; surname,
especially formed by addition of suffix (as -son, etc.) to father's
name."

In a listing I see the following -

SURNAME NAME PATRONYMIC CITY OR DISTRICT
Barenbaum Abram-Itzko Josieliovich Vlodavky
Birenrauz Gershko Josieliovich Brest

Does the above mean that the two individuals could be related, with the
same Patronymic names but different Surnames?

Re: R. Yosef RAPOPORT of Stary Sambor #rabbinic

On 2003.11.01, Logan J. Kleinwaks <kleinwks@...> asked:

Looking for information about Rabbi Yosef HaKohen RAPOPORT of Stary
Sambor, who corresponded with the Divrei Chaim in 1851, and was then
Rosh Beit Din. In Divrei Chaim, he is called a relative (so I am
told, as I cannot read Hebrew). I am trying to determine if he is
related to Rabbi David HaKohen KALTER, who was Dayan and Moreh
Tzedek in Stary Sambor for 70 years, and was alive at least from
1857-1886. Perhaps David KALTER succeeded Yosef RAPOPORT? If you
know of him or of RAPOPORTs >from the Stary Sambor area in general,
please let me know.
Meir Wunder's Chachmei Galicia (Vol 4 p. 996 & p. 991) lists this
Yosef (Aryeh) RAPAPORT and his son, Dovid Hacohen (d. 1897), who
succeeded him in Sambor. Several references are provided. There is
no mention there of KALTER. The Divrei Chaim (a kinsman of mine)
was related to several members of this famous RAPOPORT Clan as can
be found in many works of reference.

To fellow researchers:

The Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington just celebrated it's 10th
anniversary. After reading the story, it brought back family loss.

In the Jewish Agency's list of 1945, I saw the name of Gabriel Czarny born
Czestochowa, Poland. He could be a first cousin. Does anyone know, how I can begin to locate him today.

In addition, I learned that a Leah Pantofel (maiden-name) went to Israel
after the Holocaust. Does anyone know her? She would be a cousin also. She lived in Czestochowa, Poland.

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
