This is my first posting to this group. My grandfather, Max ROSENFELD, and
my grandmother, Rosa SHUTER, both came >from Voronovitsa, Podalia Gubernia.
I'd be interested in any information anyone might have about this town or
my surnames. Thank you.

Re: Schwartztimma = Belaya Tserkov #ukraine

Leon Koll <Leon.Koll@...>
 

I recommend to visit Belaya Tserkov website :
http://members.tripod.com/~Vladik/bilatserkva/e-intro.html

My gg-grandfather Israil MILLMAN, was in book printing business in Belaya
Tserkov (d.abt.1929 in Kiev)
He was married to Sura Leia, d.1922.
They had 5 children: Hinia Pesia, Haia Basia, Samuil, Fania, Beila.
4 of them stayed in Ukraine and one - Beila moved to US with her husband
and far cousin Iosif Millman.

Alan is %100 right! Shvartztumah (meaning black impurity) is the Yiddish
name for Belaya Tserkov - which probably has some very Christian
religious meaning. In Hebrew it was called "Sdei Lavon" as in "White
Field", a more positive but perhaps sarcastic translation of the
Yiddish.
It was the home to great Chasidic masters and is often mentioned in
Classic Chasidic works.

Dear Mickey,
I would suggest that the Getomir is a scribal error for Zhitomir.

the DIMMERMAN, BECK & GELMAN families >from OSTROG & vicinity (VOLHYN);

Subject: [ukraine] Location of shtetl

Hi listers-
I have just acquired copies of my maternal grandfather, Morris HALPERIN's,
naturalization papers.
Both the Declaration of Intention, dated 1918, and the Petition for
Naturalization, dated 1920, state that he was born in Getomer, Russia.
In addition the 1910 and 1920 Census records say he was born in Kiev,
Russia.
Therefore I assume Getomer was in the Kiev-Gubernia, somewhere.
Seeking it in Jewishgen Shtetl Seeker provided me with no results.
Can anyone familiar with this area help me locate this town?
Any help will be appreciated.

I believe that Berezhany is in the geographical area covered by
Gesher Galicia and all discussion about that town should be sent to
the Gesher Galicia listserv.

Re: Female name: Gisha #general

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?
Don't know how much of a 'clue' this is, but my ggf's wife (2nd marriage)
was named Gissa (passenger manifest refers to her as Gisia), and her
Anglicized name was Gussie, though family continued to call her Gissa.
She was >from Ukraine, born in the 1880's. Hope it helps somewhat.

under a new name? (It was in existence in 1908.)
