I've used all the techniques that other responders have mentioned . In some cases where I knew the ship name and estimated  year but couldn't find the record until I looked at the ship manifest for the approximate date and went through each page of the manifest . I used the Steve Morse form to find my grandmother where the name Kirzner/Kirschner had been transcribed as Kirschaer by using K*R.  For missing naturalization papers , I would suggest searching on the name of spouses and children which often appear on Naturalization forms .. For example , a relative named Louis Gilman never turned up . However, when I searched on his wife Esther , the naturalization papers for Louis turned up showing that he was originally Leyzer Gerkel ( which was later confirmed by other documents ) and I was able to find his ship manifest as well.

Sorry, I just realized you said that she never left Russia, in which case the equivalent names she used would have been Russian and not English.

Re: Chiah Haja Brucha SCHINDER #names

binyaminkerman@...
 

This is a common question that needs a bit more clarity. Do you mean what English names are likely that she used so you can find other records? Or what do the names literally translate to? Or what more current name could be equivalent, for example to name someone after her?
The first name is not something I've seen before but it seems like an alternate for the second name Chaya which has the root "chai" meaning life, Bracha means blessing. Likely English equivalent names might depend on the time when the name would have been anglicized, but things that come to mind are Hannah or Heidi or Harriet. There are no rules as to what English names were used so it could have been anything, but it is common that the Hebrew and English names would share a first sound.

As others have noted, after the revolution in 1917, there were Jewish mayors.

General David Petrovsky (aka Lipetz) was mayor of Berdichev for a period of time.

According to the yizkor book of the town of Sierpc (now Poland), my ggf was the parnass -- which could easily be translated as the mayor, but only of the Jewish community in the town.

Re: Dobrowa Tarnowską records #poland #records

Richard Cooper
 

Howard Fink has comprehensively answered your question - no records before 1882 seem to have survived. This is unfortunate, because my MILLET family came from Dąbrowa Tarnowska.
It might be worth your while checking to see if relatives were born, married or died in Tarnow, the nearest city.
If you want to know what happened to the Jews of 
Dąbrowa Tarnowska during the Shoah, this is an excellent and comprehensive account

Re: Town Finder Question #holocaust

The TownFinder only identifies towns with substantial Jewish communities. If what you are looking for isn’t there, try the JewishGen Gazetteer by going to the Communities Main Page from the TownFinder. The Gazetteer found 5 possible towns: one in Poland, two in the Czech Republic, and two in Croatia.

Requesting Help Reading Passenger List #names #poland #ukraine

susan.randlakritz@...
 

I would like help in reading the handwriting on lines 315-319 at the bottom of the page for the Abramowitz family. 
I believe that line 315 is Sore (what is her designation in the 5th column?), 316 is Dwore (my gggm), 317 is Nocheme (my ggm Nechama/Annie), 318 (I can't make this out at all!), and 319 is Abraham.  The children on lines 318 & 319 are new to me and would like to research them further.
It says that they are from Poland but I can't make out the town.  My information is that they were from Chernihiv, Ukraine so I would like to know what this says.
Thanks in advance for your help.

November 2020 Summary of IAJGS Records Access Alert #general #jgs-iajgs #records

Jan Meisels Allen
 

As mentioned previously, every month I post a listing of the IAJGS Records Access Alert topics from the previous month for you to see the variety of issues…some were posted on this discussion group but most were not—                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

all postings are included below. The following are the summaries for the month of November, 2020.  In order not to miss out on important information it is worthwhile for you to be subscribed to the Records Access Alert.

Without records, genealogists cannot do genealogy –making certain that we retain access and gain access where it is impaired is every genealogists' responsibility.

previously able to subscribe. To be on top of what is happening I encourage you to register for the Records Access Alerts to receive the information in a timely manner.  If you are interested in any of the above items, please

register for the IAJGS Records Access Alert and look at them in the archives.  To register for the IAJGS Records Access Alert go to: http://lists.iajgs.org/mailman/listinfo/records-access-alerts and follow the instructions to enter

your email address, full name and which genealogical organization you belong to-a society, SIG  or a subscriber of JewishGen, Avotaynu, Legal Genealogist  etc. You will receive an email response that you have to reply to,

or the subscription will not be finalized. The alerts are archived and once you register you may access the archives at: http://lists.iajgs.org/mailman/private/records-access-alerts/

The IAJGS Records Access Alert is not a daily announcement list. Depending on what happens worldwide, there may be no postings for several days and other times there may be several in one day.

These are listed alphabetically not chronologically.  Each month the locales covered differ.

Re: Jewish man as Mayor of shtetl Teofipol Imperial Russia #russia #general

MARC M COHEN
 

Dear Marilyn,
 
"Mayor" may be a very loose translation of the position the uncle held.  My great uncle Simon Schaeffler was the President or Chairman of the Jewish Kultesgemeinde (community organization) in Storozynetz, Bukovina (Austria before WWI, Romania between the wars, now in Ukraine).  His nephews, who I knew well here in the USA, called him "The Mayor of Storozynetz," for lack of a better term or translation.  When the Nazis arrived in Storozynetz, they shot and killed Simon Schaeffler on the first day.  His wife, my GM's older half-sister Clara Kantorczy Schaeffler died in the Czernowitz transit camp, according to Romanian government records.
 
Hope this helps,
 
Marc
