Need help determining name of time in Russia between 1890 and 1908 #general

BABYCAT3 <babycat3@...>
 

I found the Naturalization record for my mggrandfather, Jacob KAFLOWITZ.
He lists the name and birthplace of his six children but the town name is
not clearly written. Jacob was born in Bielske, Russia and lived in
Bialystok before heading to America.

The town he listed for the birth of the children looks like the following:
Raschas
Rasikas
Reschas
Resikas
Racides
Rasikes
The town was followed by the word Russia.

I would appreciate anyone giving me feedback on what the town might
actually be if that is possible. Also, any ideas on where I can write for
a copy of a birth certificate >from whatever this town is?

Many thanks and please respond privately,

Moses Lato, alias Albert Rosenfield #ukraine

I just received a copy of the Declaration of Intention for the brother of my ggf Jacob Rosenfield. Moses Lato applied at age 70 in 1918 with the above captioned names. He stated that he was born in Cherson Russia and the last foreign residence was Galta, Russia (is Galta in the gubernia of Cherson?). I had heard Galta for the family many years ago, but when I tried to put it into the Jewish Gen finder when i signed up it was refused. My ggf stated in the census that he was >from Yelets which my learned Jewish Gen family taught me was what is now Kirovograd, Ukr. Does anyone have any idea what Galta is now?

Additionally, the the name Lato mean anything to anyone. It is not a name that I have come across in the years I have been a member.

Tim Baker <tbaker@...>
 

Looking for descendants of Ruben and Sophie ROSEN,
registered in the 1910 and 1920 census in Chicago, IL.
Their children born in "Russia" were:
Abe, born around 1887
Sarah, born around 1894
Charles, born around 1896
Ida, born around 1903

Joseph BRANSON died in Chicago in 1942 and his
obituary in The Sentinal lists Sophie Rosen as his sister.
The Bransons were in turn related to the SULOWAY
family of Chicago.

Book Cite on new Book on Bialystok Crimes #general

Fritz Neubauer
 

New Book on Court Case against German Gestapo Men for Crimes Committed
in Bialystok / Poland

On December 5, 2003 the young German historian Freia Anders >from
Bielefeld University History Department presented the book

Bialystok in Bielefeld: nationalsozialistische Verbrechen vor dem
Landgericht Bielefeld 1958 bis 1967.
Bielefeld: Verlag für Regionalgeschichte, 2003. ISBN 3-89534-458-3.
Price 19 Euro.
(Title Translation: Bialystok in Bielefeld: Nationalsocialist Crimes
before the County Court in Bielefeld 1958 to 1967)
she had compiled together with Hauke-Hendrik Kutscher and Katrin Stoll.

The talk took place in the same court room where forty years earlier two
court cases where tried against five gestapo men (Zimmermann, Altenloh,
Errelis, Heimbach, Dibus), four of which were sentenced to prison >from 8
to 5 years. The legal significance of this court case was, among other
things, that the men were sentenced not for murder but for assisting in
the deportations of Jews >from Bialystok since they must have known what
would happen to them, even though they denied this. The judgement was
based on this alone, since individual murder could not be proven without
reasonable doubt.
The mainly German text also contains a few interviews with survivors in
English (Moshe KREMER and Felix ZANDMAN) as well as an article by Sara
Bender (University of Haifa) on the nazi crimes in the Bialystok District.
Another interesting aspect of this publication is that it also contains
a CD with excerpts >from the original taped court proceedings, among them
also some testimonies of survivors (Ben SHULKES, Aron BEJLIN, Leon
TRACHTENBERG, Felix ZANDMAN, Isaak GELCZYNSKI, Sol GELCZYNSKI). Other
names mentioned are Ajzik NOWIK and Mordechai KULIK. More names of
victims are mentioned in the excerpts >from the proceedings. While in
other court cases the tapes were erazed once the court case had legally
ended, this was not the case here, and the tapes are still in the
collection of the Northrhine Westphalian State Archive in Detmold. The
editors were able to reproduce some of the testimonies by the accused
and the witnesses of the prosecution. Children of these survivors can
now listen to their parents testimonies in this court case.

Apart >from knowing one of the editors >from her student times, I have no
interest in the the book. I bought it for myself.

Re: BMD records for Mlawa & Gora Kalwaria #general

Naidia Woolf <rnwoolf@...>
 

I've been told that some of the vital records for the towns of Mlawa and
Gora Kalwaria (including Warka) in Poland have been indexed and are
accessible through RI-Poland's database. Last evening I did a global
search for the name of ISAACS (or variants thereof) -- without specifying
the gubernia or town. Although I got several hundred listings ("hits"),
none of them were for Mlawa or Gora Kalwaria/Warka.

My question is: Have Mlawa and Gora Kalwaria been indexed or if not, has
anyone been assigned (or volunteered) to undertake the task of doing so?
If that is the case, when will the indices for both towns be accessible
online?

I'm trying to determine whether my paternal great-grandfather, Isaac
ISAACS, his son Solomon and Solomon's wife Sarah, came >from either Mlawa or
Gora Kalwaria; if the indices are not available through JRI-Poland at this
time, I am prepared to order the requisite film >from my local Morman
Library. If anyone in this group has viewed either or both of these films,
I'd appreciate hearing >from them and sharing information in the future.

Re: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Lwow #general

Mark Halpern <willie46@...>
 

I have read in Suzan Wynne's book "Finding Your Jewish Roots in
Galicia: A Resource Guide" that no Jewish vital records have been
found interspersed in the Catholic records in Galicia during any
period.

My understanding is that the Galician Jewish community started to
maintain separate records in 1789, although not many records from
that period exist today.

I underatand the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Lwow has parish
records of the town my grandparents were >from (Toporov, Ukraine).
They are available on microfiche at the LDS.
Have anyone every looks at those type of records. Is the
parish going to include Jewish births / deaths?
