Barnet RABINOWITZ #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

I am looking for the birthplace of the following individual who is buried
in the Kupishok, Lithuania plot in Union Fields Cemetery in New York:

Barnet (Berel) ben Daniel RABINOWITZ
Born 1875, Lithuania
Came to America 1893
Married Gussie
Died 1955, Brooklyn
Daughter Rose Siskind

I don't believe he was >from Kupishok. I would also like to know his
mother's family name too.

Thanks for any assistance.

Shprintsa : Etymology #general

Lilli Sprintz <spri0037@...>
 

Ury Link was replying to Abraham Heschel about the name "Shprintsa". I
didn't immediately jump in because I am searching my mother's side of
family not father's side.

However my last name (and my dad's last name) is SPRINTZ. I've seen
this name and similarities in different books over the last few years
while doing research. I even found a Sprintz family in Ciechanow,
Poland, in the process of doing my _maternal) grandmother's family search.

My father was in Israel several years ago and went to the Diaspora
Museum (right?) to ask about our last name.

He was told that his family (>from Russia/Ukraine) had probably come
there >from Italy, were most likely Sephardic, and that the name was
originally Esperanza. This is apparently the Italian, and also Spanish,
for "Hope." A hopeful post this has been to you, I hope.

Bessarabia #general

Lilli Sprintz <spri0037@...>
 

To: Yoav Epelman

I, too, am looking for information on my grandfather and his family from
what was them called Bessarbia.

Actually, until a few months ago, I didn't know that the place >from which
my grandfather came was called "Bessarabia".

I had been looking for information about Kishinev, a town (capital)
originally of Romania, and then later a section of Romania taken over by
the USSR. Kishinev then became part of what is still called Moldava (or
Moldavia). My mother is the one who told me that years ago, that that
part of the world was also called Bessarabia.

My first suggestion would be to go back and find out which _town_ or city
your relatives were from. See if any of your family members have any hint at all.

I am sending you a couple web sites I quickly searched to find history
information and maps that might help you. The history web-site below
gives along explanation of that area of the work, and Bessarabia is
mentioned toward the bottom.

http://www.feefhs.org/ro/urs/hurs-chr.html

Next:

This next site is a map site. I picked out the specific map that had
Bessarabia in it. Late 1800's? Kind of hard to read, but it helps.

http://feefhs.org/maps/ruse/re-ukrai.html

This site hows one of several maps of that area in the world from, I
believe, 1892. If you look at it carefully, Bessarabia was this sliver
of land west of Podolia and Kherson. The city I mentioned before,
Kishinev, spelled Chisinau (I believe) in Romanian, is on the East side
of Bessarabia.

Bessarabia seems to have been what is now (or in part, now) part of
Moldava. It has lots of towns listed there. Perhaps you can use the
names of the town to do your research from, and find surnames you are
looking for associated with those towns.

Hope this helps.

In the age of Seventy 1885.
The conclusion of Yom Kipur 1900.

The _real_ Stritsivke? #general

Genners,
After submitting my request for someone researching in Stritsivke, I
looked hard in Where Once We Walked _and_ the Shtetl-Finder and cant
identify which shtetl might be Stritsivke. The shtetl name I have is from
a death certificate.

Any suggestions? The people are >from Ukraine, so I have eliminated those
shtetls which are Polish. Hope you can help.

I thought this would be an easy problem to solve. There is a
web site that provides postage rates in 70 different countries.
The site is:
http://www.atms.ch/rates/

Unfortunately, Russia is not on their list. But I am listing the
URL here anyway, because you may find a country you are interested in.

I'd prefer to enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope, because
that would be simplest for the recipient.
