LAZARUS Bible #general

wcayf <wcayf@...>
 

This morning while waiting for my ride, I heard part of a story on a repeat
of "Unsolved Mysteries" on TV.
Apparantly a gentleman named John Grady bought a box of antiques among
which was a century old bible with great family detail belonging to
Charles LAZARUS born in London England and his then bride Fannie BERGMAN
They had at least on son whose name I heard, Joshua LAZARUS who married
Dora FLEISHMAN
I believe that the two other names I heard, Reina and Blooma were
daughters of Charles.
The man is looking for the rightful owners of this valuable piece of a
family's history. and I thought this might be a great forum >from which to
start.
They ask that the show be contacted, I am sorry but I only got Burbank
California, I know that the re-runs seem to be syncdicated in all markets.
Just thought somone out there might be interested.

I have eight pages >from the Kapresht Yizkor book. Five of the pages
contain photos of people with captions in Hebrew. All of the pages are
written in Hebrew. I cannot read Hebrew. Is there someone out there who
is also interested in this information that would be willing to
translate these pages? Some of the people identified in the photos have
the last names DERENBAUM, ITZKOWITZ, RISHPY, FEINBERG, BAUCH, BROWN,

looking for documents #general

Lili Susser <susserl@...>
 

Hi JGenners
I am only dabbing in genealogy but was pretty successful so far in
obtaining my family's documents of as far as 5 generations back. I
encountered a snag looking for documents of my grandfather, and never got
an answer >from the Office of Statistics in Poland. I know the area of his
birth, approx. dates of birth and death but no names of parents.
Can anyone direct me to a place or person who may be able to help and what
I can expect to pay for such info? Perhaps someone traveling to a cemetery
in Plock Poland may be able to look up this information.
Thank you

Gitel #general

Rlberliner@...
 

There have recently been several postings about name origins. One on 11/20
mentioned Daniel as being Gedalia in Hebrew. Is it possible that Gitel is
the feminine version of Gedalia? If not, what is the original of Gitel?

My question relates to who a cousin might have been named after. This may
help locate ancestors.

Thank you for your response.

free map #lithuania

This may be of some interest to all those that are having problems with
Maps.

This is for those of us who have ancestors in Europe and cannot find which
side of the border (that is, which country) we are researching. The free download of the Napoleonic years is interesting.

Re: Kovno in the 1890's #lithuania

Kapochunas, Andrew <KapochunasA@...>
 

Relevant information >from the "Encyclopedia Lituanica" re Kovno in the 1890s:

A horse-drawn street car began running between the City Hall and the
railroad station (3.5 km) in 1892. The town was first supplied with
electricity in 1899. Out of a population of 53,000 in 1888, 33,400 were
Jewish, 9,400 Catholic (ethnically Lithuanian or Polish), 6,800 Orthodox
(Russian), 2,700 Protestant (mostly of German origin) and several hundred
others.

In 1897 there were 71,000 people living in Kaunas. Besides the three
Catholic churches which had been transformed into Russian Orthodox churches
earlier, a Russian Orthodox sobor (cathedral) was erected in 1895. This
large Byzantine structure, situated at the head of the city's major avenue,
became a landmark unmistakably exemplifying the Russian imprint on Kaunas.

The three high schools were all Russian. The municipal theater, concert
hall, city museum and public library, built during the 1890's, were purely
Russian cultural institutions."

New information on Ohio pages of web site #usa

Rachel Unkefer <runkefer@...>
 

We now have a listing of the Jewish burials in Plymouth cemetery in
Richland County, Ohio compiled by Janet Akaha. Please take a look if
you think you might have had family anywhere in that area. Keep in
mind that there were not Jewish cemeteries in every community, so
people were often transported out of their communities to the nearest
Jewish cemetery.

http://www.jewishgen.org/earlyamerican/states/OH/plymouthcem.html

Also, I have pages on the web site for registering your name and the
names you are researching for Ohio, Kentucky, and Michigan. If you
want to be added to those lists, please email me with your
information. See the current register of researchers for an example
of what information to send. This is not intended to be a substitute
for the JGFF, it's just that we can get a lot more specific this way.

I will add pages for other states as I get time to do it.

Re: Help - Place Named Horda, Ukraine #general

Sherribob <sherribob@...>
 

Barry,

Also, keep in mind that many of these shtetls had Yiddish names which were
often quite different >from the "official" name of the town. For instance,
my gf's Galician shtetl Ustrzyki Dolne was consistently called Istryker by
the Jewish residents.

Take a look at the book "Where Once We Walked". Many, but not all, of the
Yiddish town name variants are listed in that book. If it is listed it will
refer you back to the office town name.

good luck in your search,
