is that for every Loeb who is a Levite, there are ten who got their name
because of Judah.

Louis is NOT Levy. Here and there you might see a link such as Levi,
Levenberg, Louis.

The civil name Louis may be given to Lemel, Lemech, Lazarus (Elazar),
Lurie . . . . or just about anyone

And on my family tree stretching back to 1625 approx, all Leviim, I see
not one Lieber nor any Louis (but plenty of Loews and Loebs).

We Leviim are known to react with anger when our honor our national purity
is attacked <grin> (check out the Torah). Let's keep Levi for the

I am searching for either SCHER or WITEBSKY who would have emigrated from
Russia during the early 1900's. Is there anyone out there with information on
either of these two surnames?

Tarnopol (Tarnopolu, Ternopil'), Galicia #general

CRMIGDEN <crmigden@...>
 

To Whom It May Concern,

I am making a genealogical search of a city in the Ukraine named Ternopil'
(previously when under the Austrian-Hungarian Empire called Tarnopol and
called Tarnopolu when under Polish rule.

Question: Is it possible to find out on a city map/plan (possibly in
english) where the Jewish quarter (Shtetl) area of the town around the turn
of the century (ca. 1900)?

I do have a present day map/plan of Ternopil, Ukraine in the Ukrainian
language but finding such an area after all the wars is quite difficult. I
have recently received >from the Urainian Archives in L'VOV, Ukraine my
uncle's birth certificate which indicates only a building number, but no
address. Other relatives listed on other documents (birth, marriage, &
death cert.) I received >from L'VOV Ukraine only indicate a building number
(again no address). I realize this is asking for a needle-in-a-haystack
but I thought I might venture it or, could you point me in the right
direction.

Many thanks and looking forward to any kind of response,

Very truly yours,
Carl R. Migden

spouses not always buried together! #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 

Someone wrote:

The right column is clearly my great-great uncle Abraham. He died at age
26 of TB in the summer of 1899, for which I have the death certificate.
The question is, who is buried with him? Here are the possibilities I have
identified:

A. It would make the most sense that it would be his wife. Husbands and
wives are usually buried together. The problem is, his wife wouldn't be
born of another Olswang, most likely. Also, I have no evidence to date of
a marriage.
Don't take for granted that spouses are"usually" buried together. This
is by no means automatically the case. It depends on whether someone did
or did not reserve the space for the second spouse when the first to die
was buried.

My paternal grandparents are buried at Bushey cemetery (just outside
London). My gf died in 1950, my gm in 1955. But Booba is nowhere near
Zayde -- apparently because my father and his brothers didn't think of
reserving the space, which strikes me as extraordinary in 1950! So my
Booba is in a completely different section in this enormous cemetery.

My maternal grandparents, by contrast, ARE buried side by side, in the
MARKS family plot at Willesden. Not only had a wealthy brother of my mgf
bought a whole plot, they also saved the space for the spouse next to each
family member as that person died and was buried within the plot.

Suwalki visit described in NY Times article #general

MMBegun@...
 

In today's (Sunday, November 8, 1998) New York Times, there is a travel
supplement called "The Sophisticated Traveler." (Not the regular travel
section.) It features a very moving account of a visit made by the author,
Joseph Skibell (nee Skibelsky), and his brother to their ancestral town,
Suwalki, Poland. The article is titled "In Poland, Invisible Others."

He also describes a visit to surrounding towns, such as Tykocin.

If you're not a subscriber to the NY Times and you have an interest in that
part of Poland, you might try your local library or the Nexus service,
which is available through many libraries.
