Re: Looking for SPECTOR/BAIN #ukraine

SHEILA TOFFELL <toffell@...>
 

Dear Richard,
Although I am not a SPECTOR, I do have a Stavische connection that might be
of interest. There was a family of SPECTORS in Stavische that is indirectly
related to my KORSUNSKY or KARSUNSKY family. I do know that one scion of
the family went to London around the same time as my grandfather, Sholom
KORSUNSKY. His name was Lazar SPSECTOR. He and his father were Rabbis. In
fact, my GGfather,Velvel KORSUNSKY, ordained Lazars father, who went on to
officiate at the Chuppa of Velvel's daughter! Just in case she did not see
your posting, I am forwarding it on to Ida Schwartz, who is actively
researching the SPECTORS of Stavische. Other families linked to my
KORSUNSKY's are BERNSTEIN, MAZUR, LIDJINSKY, LOYEV.
Please let me know if Ida could help you.

BREZHNEVS from Yelisavetograd #ukraine

SHEILA TOFFELL <toffell@...>
 

As Yelisavetograd has been of much interest recently, I thought I would see
if anyone has connections to the family BREZHNEV, or BREZHENEV, who came
from thereabouts. First names include Channa, Chrayne, YItzhak, Leah (my
MGM), Sima, Yanni (diminutive, I think). Yanni was known to have returned
to the area after a brief stint in London, where most of the family went
in 1906. Possibly he went to Berdichev, but I'm not sure.

Re: Software for cousins to share would be of interest to Jewishgenners #belarus

Re this question: The create-tree option at MyFamily.com allows for the
site administrator -- in this case Ms. Goldsmith presumably -- to give
"permissions" to the family members wanting to add information.

In other words, the tree option at MyFamily.com has "input" screens
available to those with permission.

In lecturing on this capability, I was questioned as to:

what if somebody wants to steal your tree?
or put up wrong information?

Well, notification to the site administrator of new input enables the
administrator to download anything objectionable and replace it with the
previous version >from the site administrator's hard drive.

Nobody can steal anything because everybody with access has express
permission that can always be withdrawn.

It's an exciting tool -- once one has specified "user preferences" and
turned off all annoying options, such as "Weekly travel newsletter?" etc.
[http://www.myfamily.com]

Family Tree Maker software is even easier to use but lacks the advantages of
being built into the family web page. Anyone adding data could E-mail it to
the family member in charge. It could be merged with the main file and
uploaded to the family site on FamilyTreeMaker.

In an effort to become more competitive with MyFamily.com, FamilyTreeMaker
has added enormous power to its user web pages. Many trees are allowed per
user, as well as multiple reports, photos, and a section for favorite links.

Ms. Goldsmith -- and anyone else -- is welcome to take a look:

Dear Moderator,
It would be of interest to many Jewishgenners, I think, to know of
software that cousins working in different locations on a family tree could
share. You had asked that responses be private. Would you reconsider?
Perhaps there are reasons for your response that I am not aware of, being a
relatively new Jewishgenner.
Thank you.

Can you tell me anything more about "Shileyskii meshchanin"? I've been

Where is your Shileyskii? What status is "meshchanin"? I'm clutching at

Re: Shileyskoy Msoshchanskog

Hi Mitzi,
In the old Russian documents the name of a person was usually followed by
what status he/she had and in what place that status was given. One of the
statuses was "meshchanin" and such a person >from Kiev would be designated
as "Kievskii meshchanin". In your case it may be Shileyskii meshchanin.
