Which sources would tell me about rabbis in Lithuania/Israel? #general

Sarah Lasry <s.lasry@...>
 

My maternal grandmother has told me numerous times that her paternal
grandfather, who was born in Panevezys (Ponevezh), Lithuania, was a rav
(rabbi) there, and after he moved to Jerusalem, he was a rav there, too.

Which sources can I use to get information about my great-grandfather's
being a rav? Assuming he occupied the post as rabbi, and didn't only have
"smicha" (rabbinical ordination), which sources would help me find out more
about him?

Thanks!!

Re: Birth Year Mistakes #general

My grandmother and my family always said she was born in 1900 in Canada.
snip>>> I think I remember hearing that she didn't want to say she was
born in the 19th century and in Russia.
The Russia part I can't help with, but since the 20th Century started on
January 1, 1901 your grandmother, even if born in 1900, would still have
been born in the 19th Century.

REF: Seeking modern name&country:Michalovce #general

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Michalovce (Nagy Miha'ly in Hungarian) is in Slovakia, about 20 km south of
Humenne'. I suspect that Nodmiha/Mihailovce are misspellings of the same
place. Slavkovce (Szalo'g in Hungarian) is also in Slovakia, 15 km south of
Michalovce and 15 km east to Trebisov.
