On a genealogy website I have found the following LIBERMAN names >from
Dinaburg. If anyone can answer my questions, I would greatly appreciate it.
Also, Where is Dinaburg?

The names are Lipka Shmuylov, Mordukh Shmuylov and Shmuyla Izrailev
1. What would be the English name for Lipka? Or, what names beginning with L
could relate?
2. I believe Mordukh could be Max.
3. Could Shmuyla Izrailev possibly be Samuel Isaiah?
4. What would Shmuylov be in English or since two Liebermans carry the same
second name, could it be a parent?

TIA.

My grandfather stated on his naturalization papers that he came >from Grodno.
Since we know that he lives in Brest-Litovsk, I'm wondering if he meant the
city or the gubernya.
Anyone with ideas?

Map of Dokshitz #belarus

snillop@...
 

I have been greatly interested in the Map of Dokshitz which is viewable
in the Dokshitz Yizkor Book in the Jewishgen website
www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/dokshitsy
(the spelling of the name of the shtetl is variable).

A number of buildings are identified and numbered and there is a key to
the numbering in both Hebrew and English. I noticed that no. 24 was a
Flour Mill. My maternal family owned or at least operated a flour mill
in Dokshitsy and I suppose this must be the one.

Unfortunately the printing is a little unclear and I would ask for
assistance. Two buildings may each be numbered as 21 and 24; one of them
is the Flour Mill. The two are in the Market Square (just north of the
word 'Shops'. The other is located in what appears to be a cul de sac
just above the 'G' in Globoka Street. In that cul de sac there are two
buildings, the northern one being probably 15, a pharmacy. The orher
building to its south is either 21 (Government Appointed Rabbi) or the
Flour Mill(24).

If anyone is familiar with the map (or has better eyesight than I have)
I should be very glad to be instructed about the location of the Flour
Mill.

Hassidic/Lubavitcher names? #belarus

Touger, Jerry <jtouger@...>
 

I am wondering about how much significance to attach to the fact that names
significant to Chabad or Lubavitcher Hasidism seem to recur in my family
tree. In particular, the names Zalman, Menachem Mendel, and Ber seem to be
recurrent among TOUGER/TAVGER men born in the nineteenth century. The
earliest of these is a Schneur Zalman who was born roughly in the 1820's,
and there is a Dov Ber far back (years uncertain) in one line.
In Lubavitcher history Schneur Zalman was the founder of Chabad; he was
succeeded as leader by his eldest son Dov Ber who in turn was succeeded by
Menachem Mendel (son in law of Dov Ber and grandson of Schneur Zalman).
Schneur Zalman was also associated with Menachem Mendel of Vitebsk, another
early Chasidic leader.
The TOUGER/TAVGER family seems to have come mostly >from the region northeast
of Borisov (not inordinately far >from Vitebsk) -- >from shtetls such as
Chalopinichi, Trukhanovichi, and Brodovka. Interestingly, there are TOUGERs
who settled in Milwaukee who are buried in the Anshei Lebowitz (people of
Lebowitz) Cemetery, although I've been told by the rabbi of the congregation
for which it is named that the congregation and cemetery are named for the
town of Lebowitz and that there is no connection to Chabad.
I welcome any thoughts on this.

Re: Family Origin-Minsk Gubernia:View Mate Posting # 177 #belarus

Ofer <oferco@...>
 

would you happen to know the origin of the name shabtay,shabbsai,
schapsel,
shepel etc.? my ggggrandfather was named shabbsai as reported and i would
love to know more about it since i cannot seem to have luck researching
him
in italy where he lived around the napoleonic days.
Barbara,
The origin of the name Shabtay is Aramic. It was mentioned in the Bible, in
the book of the prophet Nehemia, chapter 8, verse 7, as the name of one of
the Levis that came back >from Babylon. It is spelled there "shin bet tav
yod". Since the medieval period it is spelled "shin bet tav alef yod", but
with the same pronunciation.

One of its diminutives is Shabtl, >from which the Yidish form Shepsl was
derived. In the Ashkenazic accent the "tav" is pronunced as "thav" (like the
"th" in the word "athlet"). >from here to pronunce it as "s" the road is
quite short. This transformation is a key to many uses of the consonant "s"
in the "Yiddishized" Hebrew names.

Shabtay is also the Hebrew name of the planet Saturn.

Re: Evolution of the Districts in WARSZAWA (19th) #warsaw #poland

Hadassah,

When I saw this note I realized that I had not seen you in a while and I'd
like to thank you for remembering my Moczydlower family.

I still have not heard >from the PSA. But Boleslaw Szenicer has become my best
friend. After I received a photograph of a stone I learned about through JRI
Poland, I thanked him and asked him if he knew of any Moczydlowers. He
replied with three names. I sent him a check for $100 and received more
photos in record time. I didn't think anything could happen so fast in
Poland. None of the names could be connected so far, but the name is unusual
enough to assume there will be a connection.

I'm wondering if we have any connections at the cemetery in Praga. My mother
told me that her family lived in Praga.

Thanks again,

Mike Levine

Dear U SIG members:

We now have the very exciting opportunity to access the 1906-1907 Duma
voter lists for most of Kiev Gubernia, which contain roughly 46,000 names
with addresses. For this project, funds will need to be raised quickly. To
make your donation towards the Kiev Duma Voters' List Project, go to:

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/ukraine.html

& in the box entitled "Ukraine General Fund", give us your generous
support!! Remember, there are still a few days left to get a tax writeoff
for this year, so why not do it immediately. :-) There are only 8 days
left before New Year's!!

I'm also calling on all of our volunteers who are able to transliterate
from Cyrillic into English to step forward. Please contact me so that we
can create an ambitious team which will be ready to go as soon as we have
the lists on hand. A template already exists for such a database, which
will make this work a hundred percent easier. The completed material will
be placed in a searchable database on the JG database site with a link to
our U SIG website: volunteers for typing & database entry - are you ready??!

Almost all of the Kiev Gubernia lists contain place of residence as well as
names, which is what can enable people to more definitively identify an
ancestor.

Below is the list of districts (uyezd) and towns within those districts
covered by the lists.
