Jewish agricultural collectives in Russia #general

Marty Meyers <meyers01@...>
 

Hi,

Can someone tell me about Jewish agricultural collectives in Russia or
point me to a reference?

Does anyone know about one in Karniewo, near Ciechanow/Pultusk north of Warsaw?

I've heard it an elderly relative, born near there, refer to it as an a
Jewish agricultural kibbutz.

The little I know is that there were very few Jews (< 50) and that a
relative owned a flour mill and bought/processed
grain >from local farmers.

I'm interested in both specific information about Karniewo as well as
general information about Jewish agricultural collectives.

Thanks,

Marty Meyers

Slovechno my 1962 Columbia Lippincott gazetteer says it was (at least at time
of the gazetteer's printing) an agricultural town, which in 1926 had a
population of 2,223. It is located on the edge of the Pripet marshes, in the
north Zhitomir oblast, 32 miles north northwest of Korosten. It was known for
flax, buckwheat and potatoes.

Miriam Weiner's "Jewish Roots in Ukrainw and Moldova" shows records for
Slavuta are located in Kamenets Podolskiy and for the Slavuta Region in
Khmelnitskiy. She has no listing for Slovechno in particular.

Hello
I need some research done in the archives at Chisinau for records
pertaining to Ataki.

Does anyone know a researcher that will do the work, at a reasonable

I had a look at the image at Viewmate and thought it said "Russia, Balky".

So I went prowling on the internet and found this website:

http://www.personal.ceu.hu/students/97/Roman_Zakharii/map-bar.gif

It shows a map of the area around Bar, Letichev, Deraznja and other towns.

Very near and east southeast of Bar, is Balky.

If Balky is this town, then its records may be found among those
Miriam Weiner lists for Bar in her "Jewish Roots in Ukraine and Moldova."
Some of these records are located in Vinnitsa, others in Kamenets Podolskiy.

Town of Origin #belarus

Marion Werle brings up an interesting point in the last digest. She
mentioned that
"(I even have one record, where a relative went back for a visit to
Lithuania in the 1920's/30's, where the exact address of her sister in
Anyksciai is listed)."

How does one find departure information. My ggfather returned to Europe for
a visit and so did my grandfather. I have only seen and heard about
arrival information. Is there a place where one can find records of ship
departures >from the US in the1890's?

PHILLIPS, BARNETT, SHUTER, RENOVITCH, KING, FRIEND, LEVY etc. #unitedkingdom

Jocelyn Keene
 

Dear List,
In general, it isn't a great idea to ask for a roll call on lists like
this, but to get started I agree that it probably is a good idea.
Here are some of my lines - all East End London.
PHILLIPS - Joseph4, Tobias3, (also Esther4 and Benjamin Wolf3), Moses2,
Nathan1 (or Nahum or Menachem), all Levites. Moses (b. abt 1878,
London, d. 1852) and Nathen, his father, were both sofers (scribes). In
1807-1809 Nathan lived at 2 Mitre Court, Aldgate (very close to the
Great Synagogue.) Moses lived at 7 Fireball Court, Houndsditch and 8
Gravel Lane, Aldgate. Moses married Hatty JACOBS (1811, Great
Synagogue). Tobias married Hannah HARRIS (1843, Great Synagogue) &
Benjamin Wolf married Dinah LEVY(1848, Great Synagogue).
BARNETT - Rosina3, Nathan2, B.1. Nathan (b. abt 1806) lived at 16
Clifton St., St. Leonards, Shoreditch in 1851. He married Ann LYONS.
Rosina (b. 1851, Shoreditch) married Joseph PHILLIPS (1873, New
Synagogue).
SHUTER - Eleazer3, Isaac2, Michael1. Isaac (b. abt 1819, near or in
Prussia) lived at a variety of places in the East End but moved to
Camberwell, Surry by 1861. He married Hannah LESSER (1850, Great
Synagogue). Eleazer m. Esther PHILLIPS (1876, Great Synagogue).
RENOVITCH - Barnett2, Pyzer1. Barnett (b. about 1859, possibly in
Vilkaviskis, now Lithuania, d. 1920) moved to London before 1881 and
was on the 1891 census as Barnett GOLDSTEIN at 52 Gower's Walk,
Goodman's Fields, Whitechapel where he lived for many years. His
children attended the Jews' Free School. In about 1920 most of his
children changed their name >from RENOVITCH to GOULD.
KING - Eva3, Jacob2, Samuel1. Jacob (b. abt 1837, Poland or Russia)
lived for decades at 10 Coxs Square, Spitalfields. Eva (b. 1860,
Whitechapel) married Barnett RENOVITCH (1881, Princes St. Synagogue).
FRIEND - Morris2, Samuel1. Morris (b. about 1840, Hungary) moved to
London before 1867 and lived in places too numerous to mention in
Spitalfields, Bethnal Green & Shoreditch. His children also attended
the Jews' Free School.
LEVY - Rachel3, Benjamin2, Abraham?1. Benjamin (b. abt 1815) immigrated
to London >from Fraustadt (Posen) in abt 1836. He was a furrier and
eventually became reasonably wealthy. His wife was Rosa MANDOLA (b. abt
1821, Germany). Rachel (b. 1849, 8 Three Tun Alley, Whitechapel)
married Morris FRIEND (1867, Great Synagogue).
Whew! I could keep going but this is enough - probably too much for
most people. I also have HARRIS, LYONS, LESER, JACOBS, HART, more
LEVYs, and WOOLF further back in my tree - all living in or moving to
London.
Get in touch if any are familiar,

Toronto Conference #romania

Paula Zieselman <paulaz@...>
 

We had an excellent RomSig meeting at the Conference. The more than
40 attendees heard Bruce Reisch give an interesting talk focusing on
Bukovina, Romania and Ukraine. Judi Garfinkel spoke about her recent
trip to Romania. The family spent a few days in Sighisoara where they
met the only surviving Jew--a 92 year old man who was the caretaker of
a surviving synagogue! They then journeyed to Iasi. Several thousand Jews
were murdered in 1941 and thousands of others transported to a camp
in Transnistra. Currently about 500 Jews live in Iasi--the pre-WWII
population was over 32,000.

Some people wondered why we had nothing about Moldova. No one offered
to make a presentation. It is not too early to think about programs
for the 2003 Conference in Washington, D.C.

Thanks to Bruce and Judi and to Merle Kastner who presented an
explanation of where we stand with the Gyemant material.
