Jay Cohen
 

Hi,

My main (current) interests in the Ukraine are in two shtetls a bit north
east of Vinnitsia (about 100 miles south west of Kiev) nameD:

Pliskov
and
Pogrebisheche

My family >from Pliskov was named KUSHNIRSKY (spelled out >from how the name
has been spoken to me by living relatives who were simply told the name by
their parents).

My family >from Pogrebisheche was names LOSHAK (also spelled out >from how the
name has been spoken to me by living relatives who were simply told the name
by their parents).

Apparently, one or both families also had relatives in Fastov (much closer
to Kiev)

Finally, other names of relatives >from the area are: GOLOCHAYCHIK ,
SPICZAK, VEKKSLER ( or WEXLER) and VERNICK .

Town of Olshanka #ukraine

Dorothy Kohanski <dkohanski@...>
 

I am delighted that we have a Ukraine SIG. I am hopeful it will be
helpful in my research. Although relatives have indicated Odessa as
our ancestors' town , I have not succeeded in finding anything. Some
records indicate the town of origin of my grandfather and family as
Olshanka, others as Kherson (gubernya?) and still others Odessa. (1900
and 1920 census). I don't know whether "from" means place of birth or
where they last lived.
One branch of this family indicated that the family (RUBENSTEIN) had a
grocery or other kind of store near Odessa. Several later were in the
furniture business in the US, so perhaps were also in Russia. So, these
are the names I am researching and any help will be appreciated.
RUBENSTEIN, DILLER (changed to DELLAR in St. Paul), SAVRANSKY or
SOVERANSKY (changed to SAVAN in the US), KARCHOFF, WEINSTEIN, GERTZMAN
(Kiev?), RUVENSKY. Many of these went (in the 1880s) via Baron de
Hirsch assistance to try farming in the Dakotas, went to St. Paul and
then on west to Portland, Seattle, Spokane (where I was born).
Good luck to our new group.

Those of you interested in Kamenets-Podolsky should look at the elaborate
web site of the Kamianets-Podolsky Foundation at
http://www.lviv.ua/kamianets/
It includes information on the history of K-P, many color pictures,
information about archeological excavations, description of the castle, and
more, though very little about Jewish presence there (other than a picture
of the "16th century city tower ... designed by world famous German
artist/architect Albrecht D=FCrer, [with] the neighboring stone synagogue,
now a restaurant, dates >from the 18th century." The link to the giftshop
doesn't work -- let me know if you figure out how to get to it.

Subject matter headings #ukraine

NFatouros@...
 

In their enthusiasm for this new SIG some subscribers have been hitting
their "reply to all" buttons, and neglecting to write in the subject space
of their e-mail forms their names and towns or questions.

I don't know about the "desktop" habits of the rest of you, but I happen
to be a "packrat. " I therefore save nearly all messages >from all the mail
groups to which I subscribe, and I make a note in the space allotted hinting
at or even stating the subject matter of each message if the heading that
came with the message is uninformative.

If more than one person has used the same heading, say, "Re:
Congratulations" or "Re: Welcoming Ukraine SIG, " and I click on "save." my
computer asks me if I want to replace a message which I have put in the
appropriate folder with that same heading, which I don't.

So then I have to type in the sender's names and towns or questions, to
the extent that I can fit them in the small space provided. This is a
time-consuming and unnecessary nuisance. Those of you who also receive
messages >from Jewishgen, whether in digest form, or one by one know that the
proper subject heading should state what you are interested in, want to know,
or exactly what you are responding to.

Thank you!

There was Sucaloff family in Chicago. I don't think I am spelling it the way
it was in the message. I know they were here in the early 1920s or 30s.
Perhaps the person searching could use the city index.

My pediatrician in Minneapolis, MN, who also took care of my oldest
daughter was David M. Siperstein. I know very little about his family other
than he had a daughter, Eleanor, who was a medical researcher in Texas.

One of my surname researches is my maternal grandmother's branch, the

Now, I didn't know where Hotin Basarabia was, and the JewishGen
shtetlseeker database was unavailable. But I know 2 other SIPERSTEIN
researchers thanks to the Jewish Gen Family Finder, and one of them traces
family >from Orinin, near Kamenets-Podolsk, Ukraine. While the exact lines
still need to be traced, it seems that Suzy now has many cousins.

Interestingly, she found me with http://www.google.com search engine for
"SIPERSTEIN" because I have a family history website. I'm glad that I've
also registered in the JGFF database.
