Re: Tauragnai, Tauraganaus #lithuania

Kapochunas, Andrew <KapochunasA@...>
 

Tauragnai is a small town 15 kilometers southeast of Utena, on the banks of
Lake Tauragnas, the deepest in Lithuania at just over 60 meters at a point
near Tauragnai.

The lake is fed by underground springs and is noted both for being surrounded by high banks, which reach 40 meters above water level in
some places, and for two castle ruins along its banks.

Earliest mention of the town, according to the Encyclopedia Lituanica, is the 13th century. Grand Prince Jogaila donated the castle and the region to the diocese of Vilnius, formed in 1387. On that occasion a church was built there, one of the first in Lithuania. In the mid-19th century the area passed to private hands, and the town, with a population of 263 in 1859, became the center of a township.

Many area locals were deported to Siberia after the anti-Russian
insurrection of 1863, but Russian settlers quickly were brought in to
replace the deportees, and the population reached 736 in 1886 and 1,070 in
1897, a peak that has not been surpassed: 1923: 1,047; 1939: approx. 1,100;
1970: 615. The town was heavily damaged during the War; rebuilding was slow
and partial. Today the area is frequented by tourists headed for the nearby
National Park, which includes the Eastern portion of the lake.

I sent my cousin living in Israel, a map of Lithuania and asked her to
circle the area where our parents came from. She circled Tauragnai, called
it Tauragnaus and wrote that it was near Utena. She visited the gravesite
of the Jews of Utena and Tauragnaus that were murdered in the Holocaust and
sent me a picture. I must assume that Tauragnaus and Tauragnai are one of
the same. Correct?

Dear Gary,

I agree but I have to comment. In Russian it is very common. In Polish
however only in case of some masculine Jewish names -ka migt be a
diminutive affix while generally -ek is a masculine form and -ka is a
female form. In documents however a posessive form is frequently found.
For example: a rabbi so and so has presented himself "in the presence (or
company) of Moszek (Icek, Herszek)" = Polish: w obecnosci Moszka (Icka,
Herszka).

Searching for Banska Stiavnica Jewish History #hungary

Stiefel Barry <bstiefel@...>
 

Is there anyone that can help do research of the
Banska Stiavnica Jewish community in Slovakia for I
have not been able to find very much information. I
noticed on the cemetery project that the Jewish
cemetery in Banska Stiavnica is intact. Is there
anyone that has any information on the cemetery, such
as pictures, on who is buried there. I have also
recently looked at the LDS records and found that a
Jakob Welward was very predominant in the records.
Does anyone know where I can find any information on
him?

Thank you.

Correction!!! re Zelichchow #galicia

NFatouros@...
 

I "misspoke" yesterday when I sent a message regarding Zelichow. As Alex
Sharon kindly pointed out to me later, I had confused "Zelechow" with
"Zelichow." Zelichow is probably the tiny shtetl in which Mr. Minden had
inquired about.

I apologize for my mistake.

Just thought some might like to know - received 2 photo's of the Great
Synagogue of Proskurov which was torn down about 1990 - I think it was 120 years old or so at the time/ also received a short video on Proskurov made in 1990 - neat stuff

The video contains:
the old Jewish cemetery of Proskurov;
the Memorial over the mass grave for the 1919 pogrom;
the empty site of the recently [1990] demolished Great Synagogue of Prokurov; a few sights around town and more many early photos of the town are also available era 1890's-1920
