Moliff, Russia - where is it? #general

Asparagirl <asparagirl@...>
 

Rebecca (Rifka) NEEDLEMAN KROKOFF, was born July 7, 1900 in Moliff, Russia
to Morris NEEDLEMAN and Nessa HERSHKOWITZ / HERSHOWITZ.

Where is Moliff, Russia? Attempts to use JewishGen's ShtetlSeeker have
yielded a number of similiar-sounding place names (including the
lovely-sounding city of "Mylove" ), but none that seem to match. Keep
in mind, too, that "Russia" in 1900 (at the time of her birth) isn't the
same as Russia today.

Rebecca/Rifka's husband Murray KROKOFF's family was >from the Podalia
Gubernia, near Kiev, in the Ukraine, so maybe the town was near there, but
I don't know if she married him before or after they were in NYC, so
perhaps it wasn't.
<sigh>

Any help would be much appreciated!

Searching for information on the KROKOFF family. Murray Samuel KROKOFF,
born March 22, 1900 in Russia to Louis KROKOFF and Jenny GOLDBERG. Lived
in Brooklyn, NYC, New York and worked in the oil/petroleum business. Wife
was Rebecca (Rifka) NEEDLEMAN, born July 7, 1900 in Moliff, Russia to
Morris NEEDLEMAN and Nessa HERSHKOWITZ / HERSHOWITZ.

Murray's father Louis had one sibling, a sister named Lena. Lena's maiden
name has been listed variously as KROHAM (a corruption of KROKOFF, maybe?)
and GREGOFSKI. Lena's married name was SCHWARTZ; she was my
great-great-grandmother.

Anyone know anything about these families? Anything sound familiar here?
Any help would be appreciated.

Yad Vashem lists #hungary

Louis Schonfeld <Lmagyar@...>
 

We now have one team leader: Mark Benisz [MBenisz@email.msn.com]. One
additional team leader is needed. Since
Mark has no preference between the Debrecen and the Szombathely list, the
other team leader can choose his/her
preference. Will someone please step forward as the second team leader. If
it will help someone to decide, I will
take over as the second team leader if higher priorties intervene for that
person later on (of course, this may delay the Bere county list
preparations). I am happy to report that four individuals have volunteered
to do input work. We need
at least four more volunteers for a total of eight in order to do both lists
within a reasonable time frame. In order to
refresh memories, I have copied the original post about this. LS


I have just received the first batch of deportation lists for locations in
Hungary.

The lists are >from Debrecen and Szombathely. Each lists has about 4,000
names.

In addition to the name of the deportee is the maiden name of the deportee,
year of birth, town of birth, mother's maiden name and occupation. To start
the project I am requesting two team captains, one for each location, who in
turn will recruit additional volunteers. The team captains will be in
contact with Jewishgen's liaison for this project, MsRachelR@aol.com

The data >from these and other lists will be accumulated and become part of a
Jewishgen searchable database.

I will send the complete set of each town list to the respective team
captain.

Please let me hear >from you as soon as possible. When we complete these, Yad
Vashem will send us additional lists.

Families
My family in Siberia :
In the second part of his family's history, André LANDESMAN takes us toward
Lake Baikal and Irkutsk, where his great-grand­father is a prosperous
businessman. The historical Archives in Saint-Petersburg provide the oldest
information about his maternal grandfather A moving story soberly told.
Several family trees
Genealogy in Corfu :
Family gatherings are popular nowadays. Georges JESSULLA seizes the
occasion of the meeting of the Viterbo and Ferro descendants in Corfu
during Summer 2000 to show his common origin with the writer Albert Cohen
on a family tree
Miscellaneous
When « Rapschvir» was the capital of Alsatian Judaism:
Denis INGOLD and Gunter BOLL tell the history of the Ribeau­villé Jewish
community >from 1648 to 1750, using documents >from 1702 and 1718, and
earlier tombstone inscriptions. Family charts for the Lang and Rheinau
families illustrate the text. The explanatory notes are as authoritative as
the main discourse, both deserve in-depth reading
A trial among two Jewish families (1563-1581) :
The trial extends over several years. Pascal FAUSTINI has translated and
analysed the some 100 pages of the file, has located it in the political
and historic context of the time, when the first Jews settled in Metz in
1567.
In a second part, he intends to show the genealogical ties of his
characters with the Jewish fami­lies in Metz during the XVIIth century. The
paper is illustrated by several original documents
Jebenhausen, Alsace and America :
Eliane Roos SCHUHL wonders why the sons of the Levi family >from Jebenhausen
in Wurttemberg emigrate to America in the 1830ies, while the girls marry
Alsatians. A reproduction of the parokhet of the aron-ha-kodesh >from the
synagogue illustrates the article
Recent Events
Gilbert DAHAN is a historian of the mediaeval Jews in France. He draws the
attention on a group of individuals trying to wipe out street names such as
«rue aux Juifs» (Jewish streets) or "rue de la juiverie" (Street of the
