Finding Zara - something to inspire those looking for family #latvia

Eli Rabinowitz
 

Hi All

My journey of discovery should inspire those of you seeking family
and connections.

A door that had been closed for over 35 years, has reopened through
good detective work mixed with luck and the help of some professionals
as well as fellow cyber travellers.

Once I received a registered letter >from the archives in Riga, I knew
that things would develop quickly.

In the end, it took less than one hour after posting messages on
Jewishgen.org and Facebook.com to find Alon Gold on Geni.com and his
"baba Sofa", Zara Smushkovich, my long lost first cousin!

Two people who I did not know, Elena Shapiro Wayne and Gert Rogers,
reached out and provided the vital links.
,
A rip roaring success story, if ever there was one!

There is so much history still to share. We are so looking forward to it.

The origin of the Gindin family #general

Anonymous <gabi.rule@...>
 

Hello everyone,

My great grandfather's name was Michael Gindin. He was born in
Lithuania in 1905 (approximately), left at some point to soviet
Central Asia (Uzbekistan and Tajikistan) and died there a natural
death in 1981.
The thing is, we can't find any records about him... I've sent in the
past month a message here, regarding the city that we think he was
born in, which called Vysokaya Gora or Vysokaya Ruda (based on
documents that I've found about his brother [we think that it's him,
but not sure] who served for the Red Army). Some of you said that
Vysokaya Ruda is a place in Lithuania , while other said that Wysoka
Gora is a place in modern Poland, that was once under Lithuanian
occupation.
I've been searching for my great grandfather for a year already
through the archives of Lithuania. I have an Israeli-Lithuanian lawyer
that conducts the researching for me. However, no results so far, he
has found nothing.... so there are few possible scenarios >from my
point of view:
1. The lawyer doesn't work well and doesn't put his efforts on this
case (very likely, he seems like he doesn't care enough, although I
paid him and he is one of the most reputable lawyers in my country
[top 10]) ---> which means I have to find a new lawyer.
2. My great grandfather, his parents, and his 4-5 brothers and sisters
weren't born in Lithuania but in Poland (Wysoka Gora probably). --->
which means I have to search in Poland's archives instead of
Lithuania's.

Either way, I can't find this part of my family (7-8 people in total)
on Jewish Gen data bases, which is very weird. And any other database
show no relevant results...

And that leads me to the next question: maybe the Jewish family name
Gindin is not of a Lithuanian origin? Because if it is, then it makes
no sense that my whole family has vanished >from the Lithuanian
records... (oh, and I've searched for other countries in JewishGen
too, and unfortunately no results).

Somehow there are other Gindins who were born around 1905 (and even up
to 50 years before, and up to 20 years after), and surprisingly their
records are shown on JewishGen, whereas my great grandfather's are
not.

Any thoughts or ideas?

Happy Rosh HaShana,

Gavriel Yadgarov

Dear Bessarabians,

I wish you Happy and Healthy New Year! And with that I want you to make major Genealogical
discoveries. Let's do it together. I found for myself that all new findings I can do with the group,
and not alone. That would mean that we should not only focus on our personal research, but also
help others to do their research.

I hope we will translate more Yizkor Books on Kishinev, Bessarabia, other towns. I hope that we will
create many more KehilaLinks websites... and only you can help to do this. Such websites are living
memorials for the places our ancestors used live, pray, love.

Have a Good and Sweet Year!

All the best,

Yizkor Book Project, September 2016 #romania

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

My monthly Yizkor Book report to you is in perfect timing to wish you all a
Shana Tova Umetuka or, in other words, a Sweet New Year!

This month I am extremely proud to announce the completion of two books. The
first is the Radzyn Podlaski, Poland Yizkor book which was translated by
Nachman, Temy and Yaakov Goldwasser and includes some additional
translations kindly donated through the auspices of Monica Westrick. The
completion of this book is a wonderful achievement and is the result of many
years of labor of love. The second book is the Radyvyliv, Ukraine Yizkor
book which was coordinated by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick. Ellen
coordinated the translation prepared by a dedicated band of translators and
all those involved in this project are definitely deserving of our grateful
appreciation for this successful end result.

Another contribution to the Yizkor Book Project over this past month was an
article kindly donated to us by Myrna Brodsky Siegel in which she describes
how she became involved in the translation of the Maychet (Molchadz) Yizkor
book. This book is yet another that has been completely translated and also
one that has been published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project. The
success of this project only came about because of Myrna's unending
dedication to seeing it through. For those of you involved in the
coordination or translation of a Yizkor book, this is a worthwhile read and
may be found at our Yizkor Book Insights page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybinsights.html

And in regards to the Yizkor Books in Print Project, this past month it
published, can you believe it, its 50th book: "Memorial Book of Goniadz
Poland". I have run out of superlatives to thank Joel Alpert and his team
and just look forward to seeing the next 50 books go to print. Details of
where this book and the other 49 books now available can be seen at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

On a much sadder note, we learnt this week about the untimely passing of Ada
Holtzman z"l whose name you may be familiar with because it does widely
throughout the Yizkor Book Project. Over the years, Ada contributed numerous
translations and was ever willing to assist where she could in helping out
in the YB Project. She was above all, a true "mensch", and my saying that
she will be sorely missed is definitely an understatement.

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the
Yizkor Book Project over September.

We have added in three new books:

- Khomsk, Belarus (Scroll of Khomsk)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Khomsk/Khomsk.html

perished in the Nazi Holocaust)

Shalom,

My monthly Yizkor Book report to you is in perfect timing to wish you all a
Shana Tova Umetuka or, in other words, a Sweet New Year!

This month I am extremely proud to announce the completion of two books. The
first is the Radzyn Podlaski, Poland Yizkor book which was translated by
Nachman, Temy and Yaakov Goldwasser and includes some additional
translations kindly donated through the auspices of Monica Westrick. The
completion of this book is a wonderful achievement and is the result of many
years of labor of love. The second book is the Radyvyliv, Ukraine Yizkor
book which was coordinated by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick. Ellen
coordinated the translation prepared by a dedicated band of translators and
all those involved in this project are definitely deserving of our grateful
appreciation for this successful end result.

Another contribution to the Yizkor Book Project over this past month was an
article kindly donated to us by Myrna Brodsky Siegel in which she describes
how she became involved in the translation of the Maychet (Molchadz) Yizkor
book. This book is yet another that has been completely translated and also
one that has been published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project. The
success of this project only came about because of Myrna's unending
dedication to seeing it through. For those of you involved in the
coordination or translation of a Yizkor book, this is a worthwhile read and
may be found at our Yizkor Book Insights page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybinsights.html

And in regards to the Yizkor Books in Print Project, this past month it
published, can you believe it, its 50th book: "Memorial Book of Goniadz
Poland". I have run out of superlatives to thank Joel Alpert and his team
and just look forward to seeing the next 50 books go to print. Details of
where this book and the other 49 books now available can be seen at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

On a much sadder note, we learnt this week about the untimely passing of Ada
Holtzman z"l whose name you may be familiar with because it does widely
throughout the Yizkor Book Project. Over the years, Ada contributed numerous
translations and was ever willing to assist where she could in helping out
in the YB Project. She was above all, a true "mensch", and my saying that
she will be sorely missed is definitely an understatement.

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the
Yizkor Book Project over September.

We have added in three new books:

- Khomsk, Belarus (Scroll of Khomsk)
