LESNIK Family of Dubossary #general

Avenfla
 

I am researching the Lesnik Family of Dubasari as well as building the
Shtetl Site. In my search I have several photos of relatives that I
cannot identify. They have previously been posted to viewmate and will be
visable on the Shtetl Site within the next month or so.

I have also come across other names in the family and would like to find
anyone related to them.

Feigel Greenberg daughter was Elka Ruchel possibly Kravitsky. Anyone with
Kravitsky family >from Bessarabia. Also Hannah Kittova born in Bessarabia.

Anyone who might have information that they would want to submit to the
Dubossary Site can email me privately.

I would also like information on anybody who is familiar with a group
called Yupitz. They were a secret active youth group in the early 1900's
in Dubossary.

Thank you in advance for your help

Rypin vs. Plotsk #general

A good question and a common challenge because of the hierarchy of
administrative divisions and the system of naming them in Russia and
Russia Poland: gorod (~ city), uezd (~ county), gubernia (~ state)

At least toward the end of the 19th century, the gorod/city of Rypin
was located within the uezd/county of Rypin, within the gubernia/state
of Plotzk.

The gorod/city of Plotzk was located in the uezd/county of Plotzk in
the gubernia/state of Plotzk. Therefore, without other documents,
you can't say for sure whether these references are to a city or a county,
or in the case of Plotzk, a state. But Rypin is the more specific reference
because at most it was a county, one with a smallish population of Jews.
According to Evreiskaya Entsiklopedia, based on 1897 data, Rypin
the gorod/city had a population of 5,961 of which 1,732 were Jews. Rypin
the uezd/county had a population of 69,930 of which 4,367 were Jews.
In 1872-3 the population figures were likely less.

The two cities of Rypin and Plotzk were roughly 40 miles apart.

Is name 'Zelda' and 'Helena' the same? #general

Julian Schamroth <scham@...>
 

I have a document referring to an ancestor of mine which gives her first
names as 'Helene' or 'Helena'. A second document, however, refers to the
name 'Selde' or 'Zelde'.

Although it is possible that she had 2 first names, are these 2 names
related? Is Selde possibly an affectionate or diminutive form of Helene?

Re: Zaydke #general

Ida & Joseph Schwarcz <idayosef@...>
 

The name Zaydl or Zeydl is an amuletic name, that is a name for good luck.
It is similar to the feminine name Bobel or Bubele (my amuletic name). A
boy who is born after the death of siblings might be called Zaydl so that
he would grow up to be a grandfather. It is also a surname.

Zayde is grandpa. Zaydke would be a diminutive, little grandpa; so it
may not be a given name at all. >>


Searching: Yankel KREANOWITZ #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

I am posting this for a Holocaust survivor who is looking for her brother
Yankel Kreanowitz. He was born in 1925 in Taurage, Lithuania, and fled from
there to Kovno when the Germans arrived in 1941. He was sixteen years old.

He went to his family's home in Kovno on Mapu Street. His sister Fruma came
to collect him the next day and was told by the janitor of the building
that he had gone out to look for work. He was never seen again.

If anyone knows if this person survived, please contact me privately.

Re: Looking for info on Russian Jews #general

Martin Green <btestware@...>
 

Does anyone know any good history resource web sites that would be able
to tell me about the Russians and the Jews abt the late 1800`s?
Yes, my website has hundreds of pages of translated memoirs
about Jewish life in Old Russia. This information is available free
online, and cannot be found anywhere else, period...online or
offline. The information includes the memoirs of Falk Zolf
describing his life in Russia between 1900 and 1926, translated
by myself; and the memoirs of Yekheskel Kotik, describing his
life around the time of the turn of the century. The Kotik memoirs
are translated by Lucas Bruyn. You can find all this information

Chaskel HOLLANDER - Viewmate #general

Beverly <bev7@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I have a beautiful sepia photograph of one Chaskel HOLLANDER, a friend of
my father's family (SCHULSTER). It was taken in the Hague probably after
1920. Since the inscription on the back is in German, I can probably
assume that Chaskel was either >from the same Shtetl -- Bobrka, Galicia,
-- or that he met the family in Vienna during WWI. The inscription is to
the whole family, and I assume he was a friend of one of the children,
born betwen 1894 and 1908, putting him in that age range.
