Name Changes before emigration from Ukraine... #ukraine

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

In my research, it has come to my attention that my great-grandfather,
Elyokum Zvi Groberman, had the original last name of Krasinsky before the
family left Ukraine for Manchester England in 1891. Evidently, Gruberman
(which later became Groberman)was the last name of a relative. >from what I
understand, Jews specifically wanted to switch their last names from
Russian-sounding ones to German-sounding ones at a time when Britain and
Germany were allies against Russia. How frequent did this situation occur,
and do others have this tradition also about German and Russian-sounding
names?

Re: Seeking Elizavetgrad families #ukraine

No Brezhnevs in my searches I am afraid. Elizavetgrad was a new (19th
century) community largely populated by migrants >from Poland, Lithuania, and
elsewhere in the Pale. It was large and modern but suffered >from the legal
restrictions generally put on Jews in Russia at the time. Some notable
pogroms took place there after 1881 which started the emigration to the US
and elsewhere.

Looking for some help...Americanized name is Rubenstein...supposedly

possibly help with a a reference point or a start?

Thanks,

Kaminetz Podolsk and surrounding towns... #ukraine

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

I just wanted to alert everyone that when some ancestor said he/she was
from Kamenitz Podolsk, it doesn't necessarily mean they came >from the Big
City itself. My grandfather's sister said she was >from there, but the
family was actually >from a nearby town called Nova Ushitza. In addition,
people may be interested to know that Nova Ushitsa was once called
LATNOWITZ before the 19th century.
