I am not sure that I'm doing this the right way, but here it is anyway. I ma
researching my family in Vilna and Vashiloshok (Wasileski). In Vilna the
family names are Dovid Kagan, Basha Karabin Kagan, Rebeka Kagan Lichtenberg,
Judel Punski, Franya Winters.

In Vashiloshok, the names are Efraim Joseph Boyarski and Devorah Weinstein
Boyarski, other Boyarski names are Ruben, Michel Abe, Judel, Faivel, Michel.

My family and I are going to Vilna and Vashiloshok in August. Has anyone
else visited there? Any advice?

thank you,

<< I found several rare firstnames (Etka , Szymen, Gberek, Lewin ,
C'erence, Krasse, Szepal, Dobrisz, Wotek, Blaj , Ulo , Beinisz,...) >>

Not so rare--except for the spelling

Etka -- a popular variant of Esther

Szymen, -- a Slavic spelling for Shimmen (Shim`on, Simon)

Gberek, --perhaps a variant on Berek (Baruch)

Lewin -- a form of Leyb (Loeb)

C'erence, --perhaps a variant on Sarah, perhaps of Tsherna (Slavic
for black); in males, a variant of Zecharya (Zacharias), Tshernokh
(Slav, black, male), Tsener (a rare nickname derived >from the
name of a coin), Tsertlayn (>from Tzart gentle/soft)

Krasse, -- a variant of Kresl which is derived >from Gracia or >from the Slavic
Krasna (beauty)

(anyone remember that Russian song "Otchi Tshernye, Ochi Krasnye" --excuse my
transliteration--but even oldies can often be useful in genealogy)

Szepal, --probably Seppel, a common diminutive of Yosef (Joseph)

Dobrisz, -->from Dobre, Slavic for "good"

Wotek, -- I think that's a Polish name, similar to the familyn name of the
Pope

Blaj , -- Blume?

Ulo , -- probably Ulman

Beinisz -- a common name, >from Baruch via Benedict (Beynish
is the hebrew name of Dr. B. Dobbs, moderator of the EEJH
[East European Jewish History] list with which jewishgenners
should be familiar.

Thanks, in part, to Beider's Dictionary of Ashkenazic Given Names--an
excellent source for information

Searching for the following surnames in Latvia and Lithuania: SACHS,
SAKS, SACKS, ZAKS, SMULYAN, SMOLEN, AND MILNER. Searching for MILNER in
South Africa and England. Also searching for SMULYAN and SMOLEN in
the United States.. My grandmother, Jeanette Sachs(1890-1973), and
sister, Anna(1887-?), arrived in America between 1909 and 1913 from
Latvia or Lithuania, but most probably Latvia. Jeanette had to flee
because of anarchist activity. They stayed with Smulyan/Milner relatives
at 33 Union in Manhattan before moving to California in 1914-15. Milner
individuals may have arrived in U.S. either >from England of South
Africa. I have hit a brick wall with these people before Anna's arrival
at Ellis Island in 1909 and would like to find information about their
families back in Latvia and/or Lithuania.

I may have found a cousin I've been searching for for over 5 years. I
believe her married name is Lapides. Is this a Jewish name? She may be
living in either Ypsilanti, Michigan or Ann Arbor, Michigan. Do either of
these cities have sizeable Jewish communities? Would appreciate hearing >from
anyone knowing Eleanor Banyai Lapides. She may have been living with a
family called Eddins or Rettell. Please contact me privately if any of these
names sounds familiar.

help needed in reading Ukranian #ukraine

At my last visit at the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish
People in Jerusalem, I came back with one document about villages paying
taxes. If some one can help with the ukranians titles, I can make up a
internet page of the info plus scan the original. Who can help me with the
ukranian? I tried some of the russian students that work in my lab here in
Israel, and they all told me ukranian isn't exactly the same and this is in
hand writing >from the beginning of the 20 th century.
A smaller document is translated and posted on my Kalinovka site
www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Littin see the "elected" rabbi. If you know
someone in Israel that reading handwritten ukranian, maybe we can get some
more documents >from the Central Archives.

Dear Ukraine SIGers,

I recently returned >from a visit to my grandparents village in Ukraine.
Zlatopol is about 300 km southeast of Kiev and about 80 km northwest of
Kirovograd. In 1959 it was incorporated into the town of Novomirgorod.
It was a wonderful visit. Anyone interested in hearing more about
Zlatopol, our stay in Kirovograd, and our guide/interpreter experience

re Firstname "Emanuel" on JRI-Poland : thank you ! #general

Mendelssohn <mendelssohn@...>
 

Dear friends,
Thank you for your replies about the firstname *Emanuel*.
I still don't know the exact (numerical) frequency of this firstname on the
JRI-Poland data base, but I can give you just an exemple :
among 6158 persons having the patronyme *KOHN* (DM -Soudex) on the
data-base, I found several rare firstnames (Etka , Szymen, Gberek, Lewin ,
C'erence, Krasse, Szepal, Dobrisz, Wotek, Blaj , Ulo , Beinisz,...) , but no
Emanuel !!!
Statistics may be usefull in genealogy ...
If I have the chance to discover the birth-act of my *Emanuel*( Mendel ?
Menahem ?.. ) I will be very happy to tell you what was his native
firstname!
Best regards,
Florence Mendelssohn (Paris)
