Re divorce by proxy #general

David Fielker <david@...>
 

It might not always have been the husband who did the divorcing.

My maternal grandmother, Deborah STIEGLITZ, married my grandfather in
London in 1902. The Beth Din application for marriage says the bride was
not married before. However, according to American cousins, she had an
arranged marriage back in Filipkowce (near Mielnica) which she escaped from
during the wedding celebrations by slipping out, climbing into a
pre-arranged horse and cart with a small parcel, and somehow made her way
to London!

According to my late aunt - whose memory was probably unreliable - Deborah
sent back to Filipkowce for divorce papers.

Too much mythology?

Searching: Ruchel Lea ROSENBLOOM, Biala (Poland) #general

Krefman, Stephen <krefman@...>
 

I have a tape recording, made about 25 years ago, on which grandmother
Freydal (Frieda) Kuperstein Krefman (then in her eighties) describes her
early life in Poland. On the tape, she states that she met my grandfather
Moshe Hyam (Morris) Krefman at the wedding of her "cousin" "Ruchel Leah
Rosenblum" in Biala (i.e.: Biala Podlska) Poland. The groom was a relative
of my grandfather, but she could not remember his name or their specific
relationship nor did she know if they continued to live in Biala.

My grandmother was born in 1889 in Miedzyrec Podlaska (Mesrish) Poland,
near Biala. My grandfather, born in 1888 was >from Biala, his mother was
from Miedzyrec and his father >from Warsaw. They were married in 1910 and
immediately came to the US.

Thus, I am looking for a Rachael Rosenblum (RLR) who was married between
1890 and 1910 (and more likely between 1907 and 1909) in Biala.

If RLR was my grandmother's first cousin, then her mother's maiden name
would have to have been either Kuperstein or Tenenbaum. If it was
Kuperstein, then her grandfather was named Moshe Mandel Kuperstein. If she
was a more distance cousin, then she could be related to the Lilienthal
family of Miedzyrec Poland.

If the groom was my grandfather's first cousin, then one his parents had to
have the surname Krefman or Tabakman. If he was a more distant cousin, one
his parents might have been surnamed Siegelman, Mindle or Hack.

If this rings any bells for anyone, please contact me privately.

Re: Ratnik, my ggrandfather's profession in Russia #general

MarkGrekin <markgrekin@...>
 

To David Goldmam question:

<< If it means anything, I know that his passport indicates a certification of
his having been released >from (or completed) army service (recorded as
"ratnik") in 1888.

Robert Israel answered:

I don't know what "ratnik" means, but presumably, since he would have been 17
at the time, it's a matter of being exempted >from military service rather than
completing it. You didn't get out of the Russian army that quickly!

As we have sometimes several definitions for one profession in English
language (a soldier, a warrior, a fighting man) same is true for Russian
(soldat, ratnik, voin, etc.)
"Ratnik" is a bit archaic word more suitable for centuries prior to 19th, but
it is in use even now, especially in patriotic verses, poems, novels.
Ratnik is a foot-soldier mostly.

Re: Shavel Lithuania/Vivien Salama #general

rita <rivke@...>
 

"Last Walk in Naryshkin Park" is a family and historical memoir of
Shavel Lithuania. It is written by Rose Zwi, a South African now living
in Sydney. Her father's family came >from Shavel and she went back in
the early 90s to research the town and write her moving chronicle.

It is published by Spinifex Press, Melbourne Australia in either 1996 or
97. I manage a bookshop in Sydney and Rose did a wonderful reading for
us.

If anyone has difficulty getting hold of the book let me know.

The 100 year old+ Jewish vital records of Raciaz consist of two parts:

1) 1826-1875:

These years have been filmed by the LDS (Mormons) and the records
may be searched at any Mormon Family History Center. In addition,
there is a Raciaz "Shetl CO-OP" which is creating an index to these
records for the Jewish Records Indexing - Poland database. The
records for the years 1857 to 1875 (the Russian language records)
have already been indexed and can be searched online at
<www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl>.

Flora Gursky <gurskyh@erols.com> is the Shtetl CO-OP leader for
Raciaz and all those with an interest in this town are encouraged to
contact and assist Flora with data entry of the Polish language years.

2) 1876 - 1896

These Raciaz Jewish vital record registers for these years are in
the Mlawa branch of the Polish State Archives.

A project is currently underway to index all Jewish vital records
(not filmed by the Mormons) in the Mlawa branch. Other towns in
the Mlawa Archives which are part of this current project are:
Biezun, Ciechanow, Kuzbork, town of Mlawa, Nowe Miasto, Plonsk,
Radzanow, Szrensk and Zuromin.

The volunteer 'Town Leader' raising the funds for the indexing of the
Raciaz records in the Polish State Archives is Debbi Korman.
Anyone with an interest in Raciaz records for this period is asked
to contact Debbi at: <korman3@ix.netcom.com>

The sooner the target is reached for Raciaz, the faster the indices
will become searchable on the JRI - Poland website.

If you have an interest in the other towns being indexed as part of
this project, please contact the following town leaders:

Biezun: Stan Zeidenberg: capital@user.rose.com
Ciechanow: Stan Zeidenberg: capital@user.rose.com
Kuzbork: Stan Zeidenberg: capital@user.rose.com

Note: Archive Coordinator Stan Zeidenberg of Toronto is standing
