Help in Sheepshead Bay #lithuania

sman@...
 

I am looking for help with something in Sheepshead Bay, NY

In trying to trace a relative, I need help identifying the street
where they lived in Sheepshead Bay, NY. Of course a phonebook from
the 70's or 80's would help but I don't have access to that.

The address was about five streets away >from the Belt Parkway. Coming >from the Verazzano Bridge on the Belt, it was the first
exit after the bay and ship docks you see on your right just as you go
through Sheepshead Bay. There were loads of little stores along the streets leading to and including the one where their apartment building was; almost all of the signs (store and restaurant) were in Russian.

Anyone know what street it may be?

Please reply privately,

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Although we're not quite sure which Lithuanian uezd Brooklyn is in, we'll include this query in tonight's Digest. Such general questions, however, are best posted to the JewishGen Discussion Group

Simnas, Dambava, Bitten and SULKOWITCH #lithuania

spirit-images <spirit-images@...>
 

I have just joined. So far I have found 3 out of 4 surnames that I am
searching for and the 3 all are in Lithuania. Berman is in Simnas,
Lasdaisky in Dambava (Dembova Duba) and possibly Lasdaija, and Shershevsky
in Bitten or what I think is Bittehnen. I am interested in finding
information on all these places. I have found locations on maps, and the
most information is on Simnos.

I have yet to find information on Sulkowitch. The family thinks Lithuania is the place, but I wonder if it is Poland...or perhaps another place...I am not sure the direction to go at this point. Does anyone know through their own research any sources of information on these places, or any ideas on the surname Sulkowitch?

Temple Emanu-el, New York City #usa

Buffysmomplus3@...
 

Hi. My mother's maternal and paternal grandparents, the HARRIS and
SILVERSTEIN families of New York City, were both in the United States at least as early
as the 1870's. I have found my ggreat aunt Annie SILVERSTEIN's confirmation
book >from Temple Emanu-El, ca, 1880's. I spoke with the temple to find out if
they kept archives. I was told that they did but their books were to old to
open! Does anyone know who else may have Temple Emanu-El archives? I'm
wondering if anyone knows what percent of the Temple's congregation was still
German in the 1870-80's.
Thanks,
Marcy Portney

-->Moderator's note: Please remember to indicate your place of residence (city and state if US, city and country otherwise) so that other members may better assist you. Thanks.

Re: Mutilation to avoid Conscription #belarus

Baruch Pinnick wrote 28 Jan 2001:

I wouldn't readily dismiss stories about parents mutilating their
children to avoid conscription in the Czar's army. I've served in
the Israeli army and heard of RARE cases in which young conscripts,
usually disturbed, shot themselves in the foot (or similar) to get
out. (I've never heard of Israeli parents mutilating their children,
however!)
---------
Baruch Pinnick is right on target. Authorities in the different
guberniyae however, apparently applied their own set of rules.

My Dad, the eldest son, >from Vitebsk Guberniya, [now in Byeloruss]
was conscripted in 1897 'fehr der Prizv' for 25 years; he served
'only' seven. When Pop was taken away at 21 years of age, one two
year old brother remained.

Physically, he was a 'shtarker', trim, powerful being with a lot of
drive and heart. Zeyda's father was urging Zeyda to do something but
did nothing to harm his eldest son. Pop's father would not engage in
maiming any of his kids. [Zeyda's oldest brother was taken as a boy
by the Imperial Army never to be heard >from again by anyone.] A
poor man, he learned after the fact that an only son did not have to
serve! But, once the son was conscripted he could be or bought out
[bribed].

Baruch Pinnick further wrote:
The phenomenon probably exists wherever military service is compulsory.
Considering the horror stories I've read about the Czar's army -
conscription for up to 20 or 30 years, antisemitism, you name it - and
comparing it to the rather benign Israeli army, I could well imagine
parents performing this admittedly rather disturbing act for the better
of their children.
---------------
Zeyda MOGID scrimped over those years that Pop was away and bought
Pop out in 1904. The story Pop's youngest brother [another son was
born while Pop was away] told us that Pop arrived after the buy-out
'erev shabbos'. The following Sunday morning [early and dark], Zeyda
took Pop and the two little brothers on his wagon and they traveled
to Vitebsk Shtodt -the closest railhead- and put him on a train to
the coaster port at Libau, Russia. the wagon ride took over 20 hours
one way.

The rest of Pop's departure was played out over shabbos. Not only
did Zeyda gather the kopkas to finance the buy out [Pop sent most of
his rubles home for support] but had purchased the schifcarte to
America and civilian clothes so that there would be no delay in
Pop's departure. The discussion went into the early hours when Zeyda
charged Pop with the responsibility of saving enough to pay for
bringing his brothers & sisters out of the Pale. Pop accomplished
what Zeyda had commanded. This is only the beginning of the MOGID
saga in the Western World.

My Mom came >from Volhynia Guberniya [now in Eukreinje] but under
Tzar Nikkie II. the demands were harsher, apparently. Not only were
there maimers, there were "Khoppers" . These were Jewish men who
grabbed young boys to satisfy conscription quotas set by the
regional authorities for each shtetl. The quotas were edicted with
nothing less than fulfillment; if unfulfilled, the threatened
pogroms became a reality.

Boys were taken and tortured by various means to force conversion on
them. One, was to force pork meat into their mouths; another, was to
spread raw beans of peas on the floor and force them to kneel for
hours -generally, in extreme heat of cold- without feeding or
watering them; still another, was to hang them by their wrists to
exhaustion, cut them down and whip the with the infamous k'nout. I
believe the k'nout was a short whip with knotted thongs.

Jews serving in the Russian military was an abjectly brutal, cruel
experience! The explacation of the enforcers' methods devastates
one's emotions. None the less, the story should never die. Without
any religious mandate, military service is exacting & taxing in any
dictatorship or monarchy. With the rampant, rabid anti-Semitism it
often proved fatal as well as scarring. Make no mistake. Even in the
"democracy" armies, self-mutilation occurred.

Hope this has clarified some of the confusion. Khai Tov, Hal

My grandfather's youngest brother, Yefim (Chaim Gadiel) GOTLIBOVICH was
born in Cherkassy, Kiev on February 19, 1892, attended the secular
gymnasium, high school, & was a professional military man in the Soviet
system. He died in Moscow in 1941, possibly during the German attack. I was
told he had married, & had 2 daughters - both of whom are probably living
under married names now in the city of Moscow. (My guesstimate is that they
would probably be in their 70's now.

If anyone has any suggestions on how to begin a search for these women, I'd
be very grateful.
