Lithuanian Maps #lithuania

DBH12345
 

Thanks to David Fox and the Belarus SIG Digest for this interesting and useful
info on an online map company:

There is a company in Canada that has an online catalogue of maps on its
website <http://www.fourone.com/maps.htm>. Not only do they have maps
of Lithuania, but they have maps of several towns in Lithuania. Just click on
"L", then Lithuania, and follow the different links. These appear to be both
current maps, and WW I maps which will be of historical interest to many of
us. The maps are mostly in Russian, English and Lithuanian.

I have no commercial interest in this company. Apparantly the prices drop for
quantity large orders and if enough people are interested in purchasing any of
these maps we might do so as a group.

Yad Vashem Pages of Testimony - LISKOWSKY #general

Stuart Liss <sliss@...>
 

I sent away to Yad Vashem for pages of testimony for
LISKOWSKY >from Kartuz Bereza and received 9 pages back for
people I didn't know about previously.

They were submitted by a Moshe Tochman and
Dov Liskowski in 1957. Dov lived in Haifa in 1957. I do not know
where Moshe lived.

Can someone please look up these names in the phone directory and see
whether they are still listed? Perhaps their children are listed.

Thank you.

Lawrence Independent Cemetery in Massachusetts ?? #general

Dear JGenners,

I have a death certificate >from Massachusetts for a death which occured in
Lawrence in March 1911. The cemetery is listed as Lawrence Independent
Cemetery and the undertaker was J.H. Couture on Franklin Street. I haven't
been able to find the location or even a listing for this cemetery anywhere.
I spoke with the reference librarian in Lawrence who checked a 1911 City
Directory with no luck. Of course it could be outside of Lawrence. Does
anyone know where this old cemetery may be?? Thanks for any leads.

You can also get the phone book on cd-rom for about $15, but only in hebrew as
far as I know. I'm willing to buy & post one on if anyone is interested.

The Israeli phone books are available in English as well as Hebrew.

Is Vitshe a Yiddish name? Is it a diminutive? My aunt Rita's name in the
Ukraine was Vitshe, as was her grandmother's. Or is it Russian, perhaps
short for Viktoriya, the way Vitya is the diminutive of Viktor?

What about names like Nusya, Manusya, Mousia? These sound Russian to me.
Are they also diminutives, and if so of what longer names? What gender
would they be?

Thanks,

First name is probably Wicia {vee tchyah), and you are right - it's
Polish/Ukrainian diminutive of Victoria. There is another sound like
name, Wisia [vee shyah], diminutive of Polish Wieslawa (old slavonic for
the "known for the glory").

Nusja [nyuh syah] or Aniusia [anyuh syah] are >from Anna, there are
plenty of other diminutives >from Anna, and amongst them:

Manjusya [mah nyu syah] >from Mania (my Ania = my Anna), and Musya,
Musienka, Manichka, etc, etc.

Do not confuse with Marusya [maruh syah] >from Maria (Maryja) {Mary}.

Jewish girls have often adopted a native sounding names. My dear Mother,
Chana is known to her Jewish and Gentile girlfriends as Anya or Anichka,
but my uncles called her at home: Chone or Choneleh [Khonele].

Rovno could be Kovno #general

Paula Eisenstein Baker <eisenbak@...>
 

I realize that this thread is closed, but no one else has suggested the
possibility that a capital script "K" has been read as a capital script "R,"
and that the town was Kovno. I came across this on a death certificate: the
name looked like"Runechesky," but I knew it to be "Karneshevsky."

Does anybody know if there is any good way of tracking information on a
Torah scribe. I have an ancestor who was one. I'm well aware that there
were a large number of them, but as I understand it some were more renown
than others. I've searched the Web, but I've been unable to find
anything good on the subject.

Re: Mousia, etc. #general

Ada <adag@...>
 

Alan Shuchat was asking about Russian/diminutive names. I recall a distant
relative of mine called Mousia, a female, >from Ukraine, Russia. To the
best of my knowledge that was her complete name and was considered Yiddish.

My grandmother's name was Aidya, not a diminutive, not really Russian, but
Yiddish also and was made up by her family and the rabbi to bring better
luck to her since she had been sickly as an infant. Her original name had
been Yehudit and the rabbi took the letters of Yehuda -- yud, hay, daled,
aleph and switched them around to aleph, yud, yud, daled, hay to come up
with Aidya (Aidyeh).

This was also the name I was given at birth.
