Yes, but it is more than a mere local connection. Escaping the Inquisition,

Very unlikely. While the Inquisition started in Spain around 1478, The

a branch of the Benvenistes went to a particular community in a region that

Epstein. (I don't recall many of the fascinating details, but I'll be happy

Gvurot He'ari.

Very interesting. Please let me know more. I know about the Horowitz reunion.

The name Yitzhak Chona - Help with Yiddish Names #general

Josie Barnett <josieb@...>
 

With regard to the posting below, my husband's grandfather was known as
Chona which we know to be a short form of his full Hebrew name Elchanan. My
suggestion is that Chona means either Chanan or Elchanan. There is also the
name Chananel. Chanan means gift and the El in both Elchanan and Chananel
stands for G-ds gift. We called our youngest son Elchanan after my husband's
grandfather. The Itzak I am sure needs no explanation.

My uncle Hyman's yiddish name was given to me phonetically as "Itzak Chona
(or Chons)". He was >from Mogilev, Belarus. Any suggestions as to what the
correct name might be and what the Hebrew equivalet would be?

As we approach the beginning of a New Year, we can look back on 2003 as
a year of historic milestones.

On January 1st, JewishGen affiliated with the Museum of Jewish Heritage
- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust. This affiliation enabled us to put
nearly 1,000,000 new records online. More is available, more is on the
way and more can indeed be realized in the coming year but both
organizations depend completely on the financial support of our
constituents.

While the grass roots efforts behind JewishGen are stronger than ever,
and the generosity of donated material and volunteer time and skills
continues, the level of financial support this year has shrunk to
alarming levels. Usage and demand for additional services continues to
grow, but the financial support required to provide these services has
declined nearly 50%!

For JewishGen to continue to serve our users we MUST have the strong and
continuing financial support >from those who use our services day in and
day out. We would prefer that it remain voluntary as it has been from
the day JewishGen started. However, unless we begin to see a dramatic
turnaround in donations in the coming days, especially >from those who
have never made the commitment, we face some very difficult decisions in
2004.

Your financial support will define JewishGen's future for 2004 and
beyond. It will also define how we set our goals for 2004 and most
importantly how we will go about achieving them.

Each of you hold the key to the material currently online and the
material that will be available to you in the coming months. Let us not
lose sight of what it takes to put and keep material online. Let us not
lose sight of the goals we all share. Please consider a gift to

Acquisition of Records from Lithuanian Archives #lithuania

Howard Margol <homargol@...>
 

On November 26th I posted a message about the possibility
of acquiring an English translation of Internal Passport
Applications, 1919-1940, by Jews living in Panevezys. The
cost of the project is $600 USD, a bargain considering the
Passport Applications consist of over 20,000 files and about
every 8th file is a Jewish application. This means that several
thousand applicants were Jewish so the resulting database will
be quite extensive.

Each file contains various types of valuable information including,
in some cases, a photograph, an application letter, and an official
paper >from a Police Office that applicant was never charged for any
crime. Also included in some files are papers indicating an
applicant's work place as well as some documents stating that the
applicant returned >from exile in Russia after WWI. In many cases,
the following information is also included - applicants age or date
of birth, father's name, mother's maiden name, names and age of
children, address at time of application, and place of birth.

Even though the documents cover the town of Panevezys only,
I think we have to assume that some were >from other towns in
Lithuania but decided to live in Panevezys after returning >from exile.

If the translation project is completed, those individuals who have
Donated $100 USD to the Litvak SIG, designated for the Panevezys
District Research Group, will receive the entire translation of the
Passport Application files as well as other records received
previously. Anyone wishing a hard copy of a particular file can write
to the Archive and, for a reasonable fee, obtain a copy.

Now comes the sad part - I asked that those individuals donating
$100 to please send me an email message to that effect so I would
know when the project could begin. I have only heard >from three
individuals. That is a miniscule response considering that over
300 individuals are listed as researching their ancestors >from Panevezys.

Please consider making a year end gift to the Panevezys Research
Group at the Litvak Donor Page http://www.jewishgen.org/Litvak/donor.htm .
As an alternative, you can go to the donor form at the above link,
print it out, and fax the completed information to: (661) 299-9198.
Many of you have made a previous donation but please consider
another donation as well. The need is great if additional records
are to be acquired.

Carol Baker, as well as many other dedicated volunteers, are giving
maximum effort as well as voluminous amounts of their time in
helping to make the Litvak SIG the foremost site on the internet for
Jewish records >from the Lithuanian Archives. You can do your part by
making a financial commitment so additional records can be acquired.

For those whose interests lie in research districts other than the
Panevezys District, a $100 USD donation to that district will also
be very beneficial to you. As a Litvak SIG volunteer, I can obtain
very valuable records >from the Lithuanian archives for all of the
District Research Groups. The only thing that is lacking is the
necessary funds needed to obtain the records.

Wieniawa (Lublin) Project Needs Just $150! #poland

RobinnM@...
 

Dear JRI-Poland readers:

Wieniawa is an interesting little town which was incorporated into the City of Lublin at the end of the 19th century... Many Lublin researchers will find that their families have records recorded in Wieniawa, particularly marriages. There are only a couple of known Wieniawa researchers, so other Lublin researchers are needed to step forward and help preserve the memory of the Wieniawa Jews now!

We must now raise another $150 by midnight, December 31, 2004 to qualify for matching funds which will completely fund the project to index the 1870-1900 Wieniawa Jewish vital records.

If you have any Chanukah money left over, please consider an immediate donation now!

Here's how to make a donation (which is tax-deductible for US citizens):
