Catskills/Sullivan County/White Lake/Kauneonga Lake #general

Schelly Dardashti <dardasht@...>
 

OK, now that I've got your attention ... and I know you're out there ...
I would like to contact Genners who spent summers in White
Lake/Kauneonga Lake as renters or were in owners' families.

I'm working on an article which will overview the fascinating books of
sociology professor, Dr. Phil Brown (of Brown University and the
Catskills Institute, as well as Brown's Royal Hotel in White Lake) and
Irwin Richman (Penn State), and include experiences of my family and
those of others who spent summers in the area as either renters or
owners' families.

My grandparents, Sidney and Bertha Fink, owned Kauneonga Park bungalow
colony in Kauneonga Lake >from about 1945-1970s.

Let's take a nostalgic trip down Memory Lane.

If you are part of this group, I would also direct you to take a look at
Phil's non-profit tax exempt Catskill Institute website for marvelous
insights. Phil got into this as part of his interest in Jewish genealogy
and it is definitely worth a look at what the CI has amassed.
The Catskills Institute website is <http://catskills.brown.edu> -- for
details on Catskills resort (hotels and bungalow colonies) experience,
through an annual conference, website, newsletter, oral history project,
archival collecting, lecture program, assistance to researchers and
making connections.
The 9th annual History of the Catskills Conference will take place at
Kutsher's Country Club August 22-24, 2003. CI is a 501-c-3 tax-exempt
organization.

I have no commercial interest in the CI, other than having grown up as
part of the Kauneonga Lake summer experience.
Please contact me if you also spent the summers in the Catskills,
Borscht Belt or the Sour Cream Sierras!

Best wishes,

Searching descendants of Kalman ABRAMOWITZ,Novargudok-Liverpool-USA #general

יונתן בן ארי <yonatan@...>
 

Further to my lengthy message regarding my gggmt who came to New Haven from
Novargudok via Liverpool, I recently learned that one of her sons, Kalman
ABRAMOWITZ married an aunt of the leader of Agudat Yisrael in Israel, Rabbi
Menachem Porush. I believe the Rabbi's mother's sister so that I didn't get
her family name.

I would be happy to hear >from any descendant of Kalman ABRAMOWITZ who is a
cousin of the Porush family in Jerusalem.

I am looking for the obituary of my gguncle, Yirmiyahu Kravetski, who died
in Tel Aviv on 24 Tishrei 5695, or on October 3, 1934. He had immigrated to
Tel Aviv before WWI >from Belarus, but was expelled during the war to
Alexandria, Egypt, because he was a Russian citizen. Any help or
suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: FORMAN from Zhitomir #general

sallybru <sallybru@...>
 

You are apparently looking for the names of the parents of Philip and Sam
Forman and their sister Zlotta, who came to the US-I assume around the turn
of the 20th century as one is your grandparent.

Have you checked Jewishgen Info files or a genealogy book? It is usually
pretty easy to get this information.

Have you talked to all the relatives you can find? Someone you haven't
talked to may know. I got my best information >from a little old lady who
was the granddaughter of my gr gr uncle-but her family came to the US much
later than my line-and she listened when they talked about the grandparents
left behind (her great grandparents).

Have you gotten death certificates? The parents names are often listed.

Have you looked at their tombstones? If they are in Hebrew, the father's
name will be listed. The cemetery may also know.

Have you looked for an obituary or checked for a execution or administration
of estate?

If there was a second marriage in the US, the parents names will be on the
record, usually.

Have you checked in a old-age home, if any of them lived in one? They may
have a record there.

These are just a few possibilities-I even found pictures of my gr gr
grandparents in my search-the cousin I mentioned had them.

Viemate - birth record in handwritten German #general

GreGG <gregg@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I have posted on ViewMate (VM1859 and VM1860) -
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html
the scan of the vital record of my grandfather's brother. I received it
from AGAD a few days ago. Since then, I've tried to decypher that
terrible German handwriting, and although I speak and write German
without a problem, since I've studied in Austria, I have indeed a
problem with the decryption of this particular record.
Most of all, I can't decypher the name of the great grandfather's
profession and the shtetl he lived in (it could be possibly Jamelna near
Janow), as well as the profession of my great grandmother's parents (the
second part could be eigenthumer - owners?? of something).
I'd appreciate help if anyone has more experience with this type of
caligraphy.

Looking for Hankin family in Mogilev area #belarus

ZARA&MIGUEL <quijote@...>
 

I am trying to find the first names of the parents of my great grandmother
whose maiden name was Sara Chana CHANKIN /CHENKIN/ HENKIN /GENKIN or any
other spelling . As far as I know, my great great grandparents lived and
died in Mogilev. Sara Chana married Benjamin Kaplan, and later immigrated
to Connecticut, USA with their children. If anyone has come across records
of the above names, I'd love to hear about it. ( As a novice in this area,
I'm also open to advice >from more experienced researchers.)

Re: Sara or Selma #general

sallybru <sallybru@...>
 

Any Hebrew/Yiddish name, even Sara, can become any secular name. Even if
the name is sometimes used in English, if the person liked something else or
thought that something else was more fashionable, he/she would use it. Of
course, the initial sound was often kept the same (but my grandmother
Matilda was originally Rosa, I found out).

Selma was very popular in the US early in the 20th century, so Sara was
Selma.

Dear Genners,

I'm seeking information about a possible relative, a Rabbi Pesach Jaffe,

Courland--> Kherson 1840, Now what??? #general

Yoav Epelman <yoav@...>
 

Hello all
I know that my family came >from the village of Novopoltavka, Kherson area in
Ukraine. I have a census >from 1858 which indicates them living in that
village (today is in Nikolayev oblast).
Recently I found out that Novopoltavka was founded by Jews >from Courland
that moved to Kherson settlements in 1840-1842 encouraged by the Russian
government, so I started looking for my roots in today's Latvia (which as I
understood was Courland).

I sent the Latvian archives a letter, and this Friday I got an answer that
says that my family name (with all its variants) does NOT appear in the list
of Jews that left Courland to Kherson in 1840.

My question to you is NOW WHAT???

How can I continue my research >from here? I was told that Lithuanian Jews
left to Kherson too but the Lithuanian archives told me that I should look
in the Latvian archives.

Thanks in advance for any help.
