Jewish "House Lists!" Attn: Latvian (& Lithuanian) researchers #general

NFatouros@...
 

Yesterday, while doing a websearch for a surname (which was not in the least
related to any of mine) I came upon some astonishing websites which I don't
think anyone else in this forum has mentioned, although I believe members of
the Courland Research Group may be aware of them.

They are at:

http://www.ej-anders.com/users/pberkay/Ind55.htm

http://www.ej-anders.com/users/pberkay/IndSeel.htm

Here one can find "house lists" for Jews living on or near various estates
in or near:

Jakobstadt
Klein Salven,
Dausewass,
Herbergen,
Ilsenberg,
Kurmen,
Linden Pastorate,
Alt Memelhof,
Gross Memelhoff,
Nerft and Sussey,
Pikaln, Gross Salven,
and Gross and Klein Sussey.

These Jewish house lists are taken >from the 1797 Neft and Ascheraden Parish
Census and >from various nineteenth century registers and directories for
Jacobstadt.

Clicking on the buttons for each of the above listed places will bring up
detailed lists of various persons and their family members. Many of them
were involved with inn-keeping but I noted at least one schoolmaster. I did
not examine any of these lists very carefully as I do not have ancestors
from any of these places.
I am sending copies of this message to Harold Rhode and Professor Jerry
Esterson because, after checking through the Discussion Group Archives and
elsewhere, I learned that Harold Rhode is interested in Memelhof, while
Jerry is interested in the surname KURMAN or KURMEN (and there is a listing
at this URL for Jews who lived near the KURMEN private estate).

Even if nobody else in this forum has ancestors >from the above places, this
website interesting to visit.

Thanks are to be given by those whose ancestors were Latvian and/or
Lithuanian to Dr.Paul Berkay whose websites these are.

Looking for Nizka #53 and U.L. Smocza #55 police records for Abraham BROMAN #general

mike <grunt614@...>
 

Hello Everyone--

I am hoping that someone can help me in my journey. Between the 1920 and
1930 my grandfather got in some trouble in Warsaw for being I guess what
they called a Roof gamblers and for stealing food to survive. He was
required to leave Warsaw in 1927. I was wondering if there was a way to
get hold of the Police records that were kept on him. In a translated letter
from my g grandmother Feigla Broman maiden name Borenstein she tells about
how on the streets of Nizka #53 and U.l. Smocza # 55 the Police came to
her and brought her to the Police Station and questioned her about her son
Abraham Broman ( thats my grandfather). Feigla Broman was married to
Samuel Broman.I am asking for help in this matter because I dont know where
to turn to. Thanks for all your time and effort in thia matter it's greatly
appreciated.

Please respond privately.

Where is "Megibogi?" #general

Shawn Weil <weil.17@...>
 

Dear Group-

I have found the passenger manifest for my great-grandmother's brother,
Leisar Berenberg. He arrived in 1911 on the S.S. Teutonic - not the
Titanic, as it said in his Naturalization Papers :). I am positive that it
is the right person because he is heading for the (confirmed) address of
his brother Edel. I have found the census record for that address.

My question: The family is >from Khotin, Ukraine, but stayed in England for
a few months before coming to the US. On this passenger manifest, it
states that the last permanent residence and place of birth for Leiser
Berenberg is "Megibogi." It does state that he is Russian. Does anyone
have any idea what where "Megibogi" is or what name it could refer
too? I've checked Shtetl seeker and my Encarta Atlas for ideas, but none
of the names felt convincing. Any insight would be appreciated.

Good YomTov, everyone-

Can you translate 3 Yiddish words on back of photo? #general

Is there anyone in the group who can translate what appears to me to be 3
Yiddish words written in script on the back of a family photo? I'm planning
on using the photo as a cover for my family tree, and I'd like to know if
this is a date or whatever is written about them on the back.
Please contact me privately if you can help.
Many thanks,

Dear Ann and All,
There is a rather large branch of the Nankins who spell their name
NAINKIN. A number came >from the Riversdale area in the Cape. One of
them was a tennis player of International standard--David Nainkin, while
another was an orthopaedic spinal surgeon Leonard Nainkin practising in
Johannesburg. It is probable that the families are the same, the
difference being the whim of an immigrant official's spelling at the

As the great grandson of a Birzer, I would like to know if you have
located other Birzer Society records, particularly for the New England
area. My late father use to joke that he was a member of "Sons of Birzer",
a sort of informal grouping of the children of an Boston or Providence
Birzer Society.

Does anyone know of any records (meeting notes, mailing lists, mission

Radomyshl, Ukraine - upgraded site #ukraine

Eli Kislyuk <elikis@...>
 

Recently I have fully upgraded the Radomyshl site, which was created
five years ago. The site is located on: http://radomyshl.lk.net
(JewishGen administrators were asking me to move the site contents to
their server; a few months ago I did it, but they are still linking from
ShtettlLinks Project to the above address, so meanwhile it is on lk.net).

The renewal site is redesigned and includes a lot of new discoveries.
Now it contains of eight parts: History, Images, Maps, Links, Holocaust,
Archives & databases, Memoirs & family stories and Genealogy.

I think, "Images" is most interest, it is divided into two other parts:
views
and faces. In last one Radomyshl researchers are welcomed to send
their family photos in order to publish them on the site.

On my opinion, the page "Postcards" (see it in "Images") seems to be
very attractive. There you can find 16 restored postcards of Radomyshl,
which were published by my great grandfather Elya ZAYEZDNY about
100 years ago. Also you can find there a few Photo Galleries of modern
Radomyshl.

In "Memoirs & family stories" Radomyshl researchers are invited to tell
their family stories, which could be added on the site. There you can also
read my notes >from the interest meeting with 96-years-old former
Radomyshl resident Zina EISENBERG, who lived there until 1995.

Parts "Links", "Archives & databases" and "Genealogy" are enriched by
new and/or updated links. The new link to the 1895 list of Radomyshl
businesses, which was translated and compiled by JewishGen site,
is found in "Archives & databases".

I would like to apologize in advance for possible inaccuracy or any mistakes
(especially in my English) and will appreciate, if you correct
and update such mistakes by sending e-mail to me. By the way, my
e-mail address recently was changed. It is now: elikis@...

Dear Genners,

I am seeking volunteer *validators* (proofreaders) for a
5,000 name index, "Boryslaw-Drohobycz Forced Laborers,"
which is part of a data sharing project between Yad Vashem
and JewishGen. This material will be added to the
JewishGen Holocaust database.

Potential volunteers should have access to an Excel
compliant spreadsheet.

Guidelines may be viewed at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/HOWTO.html

In most cases the fields include surname, given name, date
of birth, occupation.

Please feel free to email me with any questions, comments,
