The town of Gomel #belarus

Molly Gordy <mg534@...>
 

Hello, I am a new member of the Belarus SIG, looking for information about
the town of Gomel, in Mogilev guberniya, and searching for surviving
members of the Kessler and Glazman (or Glosman) families who lived there
until World War II.

I am grateful already for the wonderful work you have done, and hope I can
contribute in some small way.

Borisov/Berezev #belarus

ADAVIS <ADAVIS@...>
 

I recenlty learned a set of great grandparents were members of the Borisover
Workmen's Circle branch 354 in New York. Even after moving to Chicago, they
associated with this area- being buried in the Berezeviker Vereihn section
of Waldheim. It would stand to reason that they came >from Borisov, but I
have been unable to find their surname, Rachlin, in any of the records the
SIG has translated for the shtetl.

Is anyone familiar with the name and a geographic point of origin that might
illustrate their connection to Borisov?

Re: : Trotsky/Rabinovitch connection? #belarus

Eve Greenfield <eve_rachel@...>
 

Dear All,

Although this is a Trotsky/Rabinowich connection,
since I'm not a Russian historian, I don't know if
this info is specifically relevant to Udi's inquiry.
You never know, though, so I'll post it anyway.
When I was in grad classes at Indiana
University/Bloomington's Russian & East European
Institute (1994-95), there was a Russian History
professor named Alexander Rabinowich. He retired not
long after I left Bloomington, and I remember that
either right before or upon his retirement, the REEI
newsletter, REEIfication, published a blurb about his
life and career. Seems Dr. Rabinowich's father (whose
first name escapes me at the moment) was personally
involved in the Russian Revolution, and young Alex had
grown up listening to many of the prominent figures of
the day arguing politics around the kitchen table (I
don't remember whether this included THE Trotsky, or
whether the Rabinowiches were more closely connected
to Kerensky's Provisional Government, but I guess
neither is out of the question.)
I think past newlsletter issues are archived on the
Russian & East European Institute's section of Indiana
U.'s Web page (www.indiana.edu), and Dr. Rabinowich is
probably still living in Bloomington: as an emeritus
professor, he might even have an e-mail account still
active with the University.In any case, IU has a great
program in Russian history and Jewish/E. European
history, so you can probably find lots of info of
interst on their Web site. Happy Hunting!

Dear all.

I got a reply (above) to my recent question: Trotsky
Heller connection.
The plot is becoming quiet interesting:
My grandfather, Jacob Zvi Chaikin (1890-1928),
married in 1916, in London,
to my grandmother, Bertha Rabson (>from Rabinowich).
His mother, Chana Zelda (nee Zalaznik), was daughter
of Miriam Batia (nee
Trotzky) >from the area of the list above (Grodno).
Her (Bertha's) father, was >from Zhetl, now known as
Dyatlovo, near Grodno in
Belarus.
Bertha's father, Josef Mendel Rabinowich, son of
Wolf Rabinowich, arrived in
London in the 1880s'. Bertha was born in 1894.
Zvi Jacob arrived in 1893. His father established
the wine seller of the
wine
of the Jewish settlements of Eretz Yisrael, the
BUZWIN (Beauty of Zion
wine).
Since we know that until that generation, my family
got married only through
matchmaking inside an near the family, it seems that
there might had been a
connection of any sort between Rabinowich of Grodno
district and Trotsky
from near by.
Best regards. Udi Cain. Jerusalem.


TROTSKY Berko ben Vulf, age 30
TROTSKY Khasia bat Berko V' Malka, age 8

appear in the 1858 Lida census for the town of
Voronovo.
That was Vilna guberniya, Lithuania, now Grodno
Oblast,
Belarus, an area contiguous to Slonim.

Thank you to Dr. Isseroff for sharing information on this book. I have
tried to find it without success- it is apparently unavailable in the US.
Perhaps he could share with the SIG where he obtained the book, wehther it
is in Russian or English and whether or not it might be a useful data
source?

* Re: Nove Mesto, Slovakia near Trnava, Slov #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Satoraljaujhely's Slovakian name is Nove Mesto pod Siatrom (with a
hacek on the 'S'). There is a place called Nove Mesto nad Vahom
(Vagujhely - Neustadt an der Vaagh) which is close to Trnava.

Synagogues #hungary

Michele Sankar <sankosy@...>
 

Hello H-siggers -

I am so used to the multitude of synagogues in the Toronto area that I
took for granted that this was the case everywhere. While I know that
the larger Hungarian cities had synagogues, I wonder about the smaller
communities that many of us are searching. Yes, we find Jewish
registers of births, marriages, and deaths, but would each of these
Hungarian towns and villages have had an official shul building or were
prayers held in other locations? I've never seen congregation names on
the records; were there any Beth Els, Shaarei Shomayims, etc., or did
the smaller places just use their town name to identify themselves?
Would each community have had its own rabbi, or would there have been
some travelling involved? I realize the situation would likely be
different for each region, but I didn't know if there was perhaps a
common pattern among Hungarian Jewry in the 19th century.

Thanks!

How cooperative are the folks at the Ministry of Defense in England
about sharing personel files. In the case I am interested in, the man
served in WWII and died ten years ago, but his daughter is probably
willing to make the inquiry as next of kin.
