Re: Mozheiki, Lithuania-Belarus #general

NFatouros@...
 

In his message of ll-1-00 Ron Gold asked about "Mozheiki." The entry
for this place in my 1962 Columbia Lippincott Gazetteer referred me to
an entry for "Mazeikiai" and there I learned that Mazaeikiai (Mazheiyai
or mazheykayay, had a population of 5,618, was 45 miles northwest of of
Siauliai, near the Latvian border. It was noted as an industrial center,
with manufacturing of furniture, mealware, oils, fats, woolens,bricks and
starches. Near the town, at Akmene was a cement mill. Until Mazeikiai was
in the Russ-Kovno Government, and was called Muravyevo. ( I know >from
some history books, that there there was a Russian family of this name
and also an Governor General who not fond of Jews, unlike a few other
Governors General who were at least tolerant, and made some efforts to
protect them at various times.)

Including names of prominent residents, Nancy Schoenburg and Stuart
Schoenburg devote two pages to this town in their "Lithuanian Jewish
Communities," Jason Aronson, 1996, ISBN 1-56821-993-8. The Schoenburgs
say that in 1897, the town had only 435 Jews.

Translation of a couple of names pls! #general

David Rundo <djar5@...>
 

All:
I am looking for a translation of a couple of names. One name I have
is Lewek (>from Poland), so if there is an English
translation/spelling... ;-)

Also am looking for a translation into polish/polish spelling of Lewis ;-)))

Surazh and Unecha #general

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

I just wanted to thank everyone for the input on the mystery about the
reference to Klintsel Unecha. I checked with my 91 year-old great-aunt and
she confirmed that any reference to Unecha in the family was an error,
since it was not close to Surazh at all. May my aunt live and be well.
She's more like someone in her 70s than 90s!

KGB Archives in Russia #general

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

Has anyone had any experience dealing with the central KGB archives in
Russia? A couple of different researchers in Russia have said that the KGB
archives are a realistic option for records when one cannot seem to find
genealogicy-related documents in regular archives. For everyone's benefit,
please post any info to the whole Jewishgen family!

Thanks,

Telephone book look up, NY-please? #general

Denise Azbill <famaz@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I have a great-uncle who lived in the Williamsburg section of NYC in 1920.
He owned a restaurant called the "Empress Buffet". His name was Nathan
WEIDENFELD. His wife was Mollie, and they had two sons, Daniel and Aaron.

Anyway, I don't have a clue as to when Nathan died, and rather than spend a
ton of money having NY vital statistics look up his death date, I was
wondering if a kind Genner who has access to NYC phone books might be
willing to look through the Brooklyn books for me (probably best to start
with, say,1965 or so), and go backwards, until you don't see his name
listed anymore. He was 32 years old in 1920.

I would be very happy to return a favor, such as a look-up in the FHL, or
would love to make a donation to one of your pet projects at JewishGen.

I know this is probably a big job, and I appreciate it so much.
Please respond privately.

Sincerely,
Denise Azbill

1920 Census- New York County? #general

delete_this_to_reply_stacy_harris@...
 

I was mistaken. There is no free on-line search (by county) of the New
York birth index.

What I had stumbled on was this site
http://www.ancestry.com/search/io/chooseco.asp?c=3&;state=New+York , which
is a 1920 Census index (by county) for parts of New York, Texas,
Pennsylvania and Alabama

My understanding is that that New York City is in New York County. Is
this correct? New York County is not among the counties listed in this
index.

Hello,
I would like to know if anyone can tell me more about or direct me to
resources that would tell me about Ein Harod, Israel, and the Jews that
settled there just before the war or shortly after.
I have seen a few requests for information on various kibbutz's in Israel.
I would suggest you contact the Kibbutz directly, I am sure that someone in
their archives would be quite willing to give information on the history of the
kibbutz and also of any publications.
Good hunting to you all,

Female name: Gisha #general

Helene Bergman <HeleneBergman@...>
 

Just came across the name "Gisha" as a Hebrew name. Although I'm skeptical
about these equivalences, her English name was Hilda. I don't know her
country of origin, but I have the additional clue that her son's middle
name is Gersh rather than Hersh, but I haven't heard of Hisha as a name
either. Anyone out there with a clue?

Haven't posted my name list for a while, so here it is:
