[snatchers]he was bducted to an extreme part of the empire
and made into a professional soldier for life. He was forbidden
to speak English and was forced to practice the rites of the

ZUKOVSKY #belarus

Misty Marshall <miscue@...>
 

Hi all,
I have been a "lurker" for awhile now and have finally decided to post.
I am researching a William Zukovsky who immigrated >from Russia in 1912 at
the age of 17. His passport has his name as Vikintii Alexseev Zhukovskii.
Unfortunately, the page that would list his Russian hometown or residence is
missing. It is known that he was the only one of his family to immigrate.
It is believed that he had siblings in Russia. His SS-5 form list his
parents as Alex Zukovsky and Veronica Wanigaly. William never spoke of his
past while he was alive. The only thing he said of his past was he was born
in Minsk, and the family were some kind of farmers that grew (maybe flax?)
stuff to turn into material to make shirts.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in Advance,

Misty Marshall
Houston, TX

Researching: ZUKOVSKY (ZHUKOVSKII), ROMANOFF (ROMANOV), DAUWALDER, GOZZARD,
MARSHALL, CHECK, WANIGALY, CALLOWAY.

Early Jewish landowners in Decatur, GA #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

Don't be surprised that there were Jewish settlers in Georgia in 1849. As
one of the original thirteen colonies, Georgia also boasted of early Jewish
landowners and shopkeepers as well as participants in the later
Revolutionary War.

In 1733, several boatloads of Jewish colonists arrived in the newly founded
town of Savannah, primarily with Jews of Spanish/Portuguese or German
extraction. They migrated as others did >from the colonies such as Virginia
and >from the Caribbean, England and Germany.

There is much written and many records to be found about the Jews of
Georgia.

We have a Lubavitch rabbi in our town one of whose first names is

My g'grandmother's headstone indicates that her husband was "Rav"Chaim
and he was a Rabbi. It also indicates that her father was "Rav" Eli.
Can I take it that the use of "Rav" indicates that the person is/was a
Rabbi or is it used sometimes as a term of "honor?"
Rav = rabbi.
But I suspect that on this headstone both terms could stand for
Reb = Mister.
Usually if it did mean rabbi the term would be Harav = the Rabbi.
Certainly that would be the case in the name of your ggm's father.

Marriage in Eiselstein #general

Gill Joye <Gilljoye@...>
 

I have a copy of a sworn affadavit which states that CHARLES SOLOMON married
Cesira Marinina MIRANDOLI on 16th August 1859 in Eiselstein,near Rotterdam.
(Their Hebrew names were Saul and Sarah). They normally lived in London and
had married abroad (they already had 3 children) because Cesira converted to
the jewish faith at this time.

I am keen to track down the actual marriage record and wondered if anyone
could help me with a lookup or tell me who to contact. I think that
nowadays Eiselstein is the same place as Ijsselstein.

get the information and am offering it to whoever is interested. I can scan
