Re: name suffix #belarus

Leonid Zeliger <lzeliger@...>
 

The suffix "chuk" is a sort of possessive indicator in Ukrainian and maybe
Polish. Many Ukraninian (non-Jewish) surnames have this suffix. Generally
speaking, "-chuk" is non-Jewish ending, but some Jews could attach this
ending to their surname just to give it more "gentile" sound.
It's relevant also in amusing case of "Ashkenadze", which is actually
"Georgian"( Caucasian) mask for Hebrew "Ashkenazi". Some of that changings
were made illegaly by hand in the document(ID) by the bearer of the
document (ID)himself.I new for example someone who "corrected" his typically
Jewish name "Kavalerchik" to pseudo-Ukrainian "Kavalerchuk".
The situation with Kushnerchuk looks very much similar.

Does the suffix "chuk" have any meaning when attached to a name such as
Kushnerchuk? I have seen a lot of names as "Kushner" and a few as
Kushnerchuk.

Re 100 Shtetls again #ukraine

NFatouros@...
 

I have been asked what shtetls the two volumes cover.

I don't know what the latest or second volume discusses, but, according to
a 2-21-99 posting by Ellen Shindelman (grapevyn#erols.com) to the Volhynia
Digest the contents of the first volume were listed by Evie Mintzer
(EMintser@compuserve.com) and if you can find Ms. Shindelman's message you
can see the names of the shtetls in that first volume. I'd copy the list
directly >from that old message but it is stored on my old laptop which is not
yet connected to my iMac and I haven't the patience to copy them again by
typing them here.

account of travel to Poland #galicia

Through another listserv I participate in (eejh), I learned of the
following web site: http://www.riesenbach.com/
Anyone who is interested in the towns of Tarnow, Rzezow, Lancut and
especially Markowa should take a look. It is the account of a Jewish
family's visit to a family in Poland who sheltered them during the
Holocaust. There is much detail & many pictures.

For the Israelis, I suggest going to the Ariela Library in Tel-Aviv (near
the Tel-Aviv museum), where you can find the originals of Hamagid - instead of "struggling" with microfilms.

Resources on Svencionys page #lithuania

steven weiss <szome@...>
 

I do hope that Marjorie Rosenfeld's Svencionys Shtetlink page will be
visited by readers of this forum. There is a lot on this web site that will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of the area of Vilna Guberniya which was part of Poland between the Wars. I wanted to point out three things >from the Svencionys page that I think are of particular value.

Polish priest Romuald Jakub Weksler-Waszkinel's account of how the
Svencionys Landsmanshaft in Israel helped him learn about his Jewish
parents. You will not soon forget this amazing story which can be read at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/shtetlinks/svencionys/father_weksler.html

An interview with Svencionys native and resistance fighter Yitzhak Arad
(RUDNITZKY) who was Chairman of Yad Vashem >from 1972 to 1993. Dr. Arad
speaks about his experiences during the war in the Vilna area. This
interview is at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/shtetlinks/svencionys/interview_with_arad.html

Finally Marjorie provides a link to a facinating paper presented by Ben
Weider, founder & president of The International Napoleonic Society,
on the relationship between Napoleon and the Jews. As the subject of
Napoleon's journey through Lithuania came up recently, I highly recommend
a visit to this web site. You will see scans of Hebrew prayers (with
translations) composed in France in 1807 to honor Napoleon..."Could another
be found as worthy as NAPOLEON deserving of such honours and kingship, who
shepherds his people with sincerity and with the understanding of his
heart?"

Arrests in Ukraine #ukraine

Mbresq@...
 

I recently obtained a copy of an arrest record of a relative, >from October
1907. He was one of five Jewish men accompanying a horse and cart travelling
near Berdichev, where the cart apparently contained some suspicious-looking
household appliances. Three of those arrested quickly confessed to being
part of a gang that was planning a series of robberies. They were detained
in Berdichev for three months and eventually released. What I am interested
in finding out is if anyone is familiar with sources that would describe
similar incidents, so that when I eventually write to the son of the person
who was arrested, I can explain the context and how to understand the
confession. Thank you.

Does anyone know the given name "Tanchen", also
written "Tanchel" and "Tanchem"? This person was born
in Latvia circa 1852. I'm guessing that it is a
nickname for "Natan," but I don't know for sure.
