Israel resource mandate death certificates #ukraine

Dorothy Kohanski <dkohanski@...>
 

Steve Rivkin asked about Mandate period documents in Israel. The best
source I know for finding anyone >from the days of the Ottoman Empire,
through the Mandate period and into the current State of Israel is Batya
Unterschatz. She is (was?) the Search Bureau for the Jewish Agency.
She can ferrett out anything!
Her e-mail, I believe is <Batya1@netvision.net.il>
If that fails to get her, take a look at the JewishGen archives for her.

Good luck.

Hi Adam:

Your recent posting interested me mostly because of your reference to Roszev
being part of the city of Kiyev, and not Kiyev gubernia. Since I have been
trying to find the place that my mother's family came from, which she
referred to as Rozhever Kolonya near Kiyev. I have found a Rozhev 38.3 miles
w of Kiyev. Where did you find the Roszev you mention?

Re: The given name Zunie #general

David Rothman <drothman1@...>
 

My late father had a first cousin named Zani born in
Horodenka in 1913. His name at various times was
Janie, Sonnya, Zonnie M., Sam, and Sonny, if that is
any clue as to original pronunciation in Galicia.

If anyone can tell me if they have heard of this first name,
please let me know. Is it more of a Yiddish name than a Hebrew name?
Male or Female?
The name could be Zhenya, a diminutive of Evgenij (Eugene)
It is a male and female Russian name.

Given name of Label/Labe #ukraine

Mitzi Smetters <msmetters@...>
 

Two of my gggrandfathers had the given name of Label or Labe (Label
MICHELSON b. 1820 in Prussia and Labe BOBROV/BABROV of the same generation).

I have not seen this given name of Label or Labe anywhere else. Is any one
familiar with this as a given name? Could it be a title rather than a name.
These men where merchants, and as far as we know, not rabbis.

SATINOVER from Satanov #ukraine

From: Mitzi Smetters
Subject: SATINOVER >from Satanov

I am looking for information on:

Benjamin (Binyomin) SATINOVER: born about 1880; married who Paulina
RAPPAPORT about 1900, probably in America. Paulina's mother's given name
was Bessie.

They lived in Chicago, Illinois, but Benjamin and his family came from
Satanov, Ukraine. I do not know what name they use while in Satanov, and
assume they adopted the name after leaving there.

Any information on this family or on the town of Satanov would be very
appreciated.

I would like to print some details of "my Hoffman Family" hoping
that it will mean something to anyone of the subscibers.!)

My family comes >from Lithuania >from a shtetel called Pokroy {in

about 1873 had a older sister Bat Sheva or Shevah Hoffman. She
emigrated to the USA towards the end of the 19th Century {no exact
date known} She married (married name not known) had at least one
child JOSEPH. She lived in Philadelphia and was last heard of
during the Second World War.

I know that It is like looking for a needle in a haystack, but I keep on
trying. So if this rings a bell let me know.

I have copies of tax and census records written in Russian in 1894. A
friend in Russia translated them for me, but her English is limited and my
Russian is non-existent. I had a hard time reading her handwriting, but I
think the name of the town listed on the papers is:

Shileyskoy Msoshchanskog

Re: Bresilever #ukraine

Dear Adam Davis,

The town of Brusilov (Russian) or Brusyliv (Ukrainian) is southwest of Kiev,
approximately 50 miles. When you are on the Kiev-Zhitomir highway, you make
a left turn (going south) just before you enter Korostyshev. The people
from Brusilov are called the Brusilover. I had relatives in Brusilov among
other towns in the area. Los Angeles, where I live, had a very active
Brusilover Landsmanshaft until the 1980s when the president, Mr. Turbov,
passed away. In 1988 I was in the Ukraine when it was still under the USSR
I wanted to make a side trip to Brusilov ( I had permission to visit
Korostyshev only) but was unable. Even though Brusilov was/is tiny, there
were two sections called "old town" and "new town." Brusilov had a market
place that was somewhat well attended. After the 1905 pogrom in Brusilov,
many Jews came to America while others left for relatively bigger towns
nearby, e.g. Korostyshev, Radomyshel, Zhitomir, etc. A relative who came to
the USA about three years ago >from Korostyshev, informed me that the last
Jew of Brusilov had passed away in the middle 1990s. My Brusilover
relatives, about whom I am aware, were PINKOVSKY and PEKER. I am also doing
research on the VEXLERS of Korostyshev. I wouldn't be surprised if your
Brusilover VEXLERS were a branch of my family.

My grandfather recently told me that his WEXLER family lived is a section
or suburb of the City of Kiyev (not gubernia) called Bresilever. Has any
run across this in their research? It's not a shtetl (and yes, I've
checked the finder...) I'm also looking for infomation on Roszev, which
was another "section of Kiyev.

Any information would be appreciated.
