Searching for ancestors from Mogilev, Russia #general

mouallem@...
 

I am looking for any information regarding Jews >from Mogilev. My
g.grandparents were born there but emigrated to the US in the early
1900's, it is my understanding that the rest of the family dispersed
throughout Eastern Europe. I am also looking for the remaining members
of the family who may be living in California, they would have the
surname LUKAS. The surnames that I am researching are: LUKASHEVSKY
(changed to Lukas), SCHLEIFER and FORSTADT. I have searched on the
Jewish Gen family finder and came up blank, does anyone know a better
way in which to locate information on this area?

Thank you in advance,
Carole Mouallem

My mother informs me that her paternal grandparents, Louis and Sara
KRAMER, used to belong to a synagogue at 4th and Porter Sts., in
Philly. This was pre-Depression years (about 1900-1925). Can anyone
tell me the name of that shul, and possibly where I might find their
archives?

Please reply privately to <rickiz@mindspring.com>

French Painter Henry CARO-DELVAILLE #general

Rene <106141.360@...>
 

TheJewish French painter/engraver Henry CARO-DELVAILLE born 1876 in
Bayonne ( Pyrenees Atlantiques), died in 1926 in Paris.
He was a member of the Ecole Francais and inspired by Bonnat and Maignan.

He studied at the Societe Nationale des Beaux Arts.

Besides the names of some of his paintings this is all I know of him and
was available at the library of the Amsterdam Rijksmuseum.
I like to know more about this painter and his possible descendants.
It would not surprise me at all if one of the readers of Jewishgen has
more on CARO-DELVAILLE or other sources where I could find more.

Thanks

Re: Family Reunions #general

I suppose you'll have name tags. An extra gimmick would be to work out
a way to identify members of each different branch of your family tree
with a nametag of a different color.

Correct URL for Slovak Villages #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

My apologies to those unable to find this site.

http://www.carpatho-rusyn.org/villages.htm is the correct URL for the list
of Carpatho-Rusyn villages

Root Seekers guide to the Homeland is a list of Carpatho-Rusyn
villages based on the 1910 Hungarian census. The list includes names of
villages, pre-WWI counties (megye) or Galician districts (bezirk), and
present day administrative subdivisions and countries.As far as I can
tell, the list, which was prepared by Paul Magocsi and the Multicultural
history Society of Ontario, only goes through K at present.

Finding Family in Grodno today #general

Jeanne Gold <JeanneGold@...>
 

Dear JewishGenners,

I don't remember now which site I was on, but it had to do with
Temples/Synagogues around the world. I had a crazy idea, and wrote to
several, asking if there was some way to open communication between them
and us to help us find our living relatives in Grodno. The following reply
just came. I would like to organize those interested and send a single
reply (which is why I didn't include how to contact them directly).

Please write to me (privately) telling me what you want said/sent to them.

At the present time, my husbant, Michael Kemerov is writing a book
