Thank you!

I have been meaning to write something like that for some time - only I
haven't had the time.

Not having much time is why it is of importance for me, that those who
reply to other messages DO NOT CHANGE THE SUBJECT.

In that way - as Itzhak.Epstein wrote - it is easy to get to the messages
that are of interest for you AND MORE IMPORTANT you can send replies if
need be at once.

Sometimes I find a message, I should have responded to several weeks/months
later, because the subject changed, so I skipped it for lack of time.

So I join Itzhak.Epstein in asking you to please keep the thread and not
change the subject.

Best regards

Re: Minsk Project - Vselyub and Korelichi #belarus

MYRA S DAVIS <myrabokpg@...>
 

Hi,
If you are looking for shtetls get the book called "Where Once We Walked"
It contains just about all of them with a population figure and the
long. and lat. so you can find it one the map. It will give you the km
from the nearest city.
Also the "Encyclpedia Judaica" is a great source as it lists the shtetls
and gives information about it.
Good luck,

Re: Transit via Yekaterinoslav #belarus

MYRA S DAVIS <myrabokpg@...>
 

Have you read the book "World of our Fathers" by Irving Howe?
He tells all about the Russian Jews and their immigration to the U.S
during the period of 1881 and on and the towns they went through. There
was no mention of the place called Yekaterinoslav.

Dear Jewishgenners,

I have read many times that some of you have lost your addresses. How
awful. I have 300 people on my mailing list and I copied the whole lot and
put them into WORD. I saved them and printed them out.

For those who don't know how it works please follow these easy steps.

1. Highlight the whole address book
2 SELECT ALL
3. Press COPY
4. Exit the programme.
5. Go into WORD (or whatever programme you use)
6. click on Edit and choose PASTE.

VOILA. Your whole add. book appears.

7. SAVE IT
8. PRINT IT (OPTIONAL)

Those of you with Databases and family Tree Maker, Save everything onto
disc. I save my database twice a week and it is on two different discs.
Rather spend a few minutes saving the info, than a heartbreak later on.

I hope the moderator regards this as Genealogy! It isn't really, but it is
meant to assist all Genealogists .

To end off this letter, I would like to wish you all a Wonderful Year,
filled with Health, Happiness, Joy and Peace - and only good things for you
all in the years to come. A Good Fast.

Yekaterinoslav #general

Haim Fridman <fridman@...>
 

In reply to several messages about Yekaterinoslav, I will briefly outline
some of my research of the Jewish communities in the Guberniya (government)
that was once called Yekaterinoslav and is now called Dyepropetrovsk.

In the late 18th century large areas of territories in south-east Ukraine
came under the control of the Russian Tsarist regime. This area was then
known a Novorussia (New Russia) and was divided roughly into three
Guberniyas: Kherson, Yekaterinoslav and Tavritch (the latter included the
Crimean peninsular and part of the adjacent mainland).

The Russian government was anxious to develop this region by settlement
from the rest of the Russian Empire. At the same time the government sought
a way to relieve itself of the so-called "Jewish Question", particularly in
what is now Lithuania, Latvia and Belarus. With the ascent of Tsar
Alexander 1st legislation was passed to define and relieve in some part the
situation of the Jews. One aspect of this legislation was to encourage Jews
to leave the crowded and economically poor centres in the north and
establish new settlements in Novorussia. Those Jews who qualified to be
included in this enterprise were promised financial support to set up
agricultural colonies, with the added incentive of exemption >from military
service (the period varied at various times throughout the 19th century).

A number of agricultural colonies were established initially in Kherson
Guberniya >from the first decade of the 19th century. The Yekaterinoslav
colonies were established later. In 1846 the first
group of Jewish colonists set off >from the rallying point in Mogilev and
headed for a region in Yekaterinoslav Guberniya. This group was subdivided
according to town of origin. So several convoys underwent the arduous
journey by river and by wagon. The 285 families were divided into six
colonies. Subsequently other colonies were established bringing the total
to seventeen by the late 1860's. At the peak in the 1880's the
Yekaterinoslav colonies housed about 20,000 Jews.

The colony region was roughly north of the Sea of Azov, and the colonies
were situated in two uyezds, Alexandrovsk and Mariupol.

Much can be written about life in the colonies during the period of the
second half of the 19th century until their tragic destruction during the
civil war of 1917-1921. Thereafter most of the colonies were revamped by
the
Soviet regime and functioned as collectives incorporated as the
Nei-Zlatopol Jewish Autonomous Region. The Nazi invasion brought the end to
this unique episode in Jewish history.

The Jewish urban communities in Yekaterinoslav Guberniya were established
on a very small scale alongside the colonies. As time passed and many
families found themselves unsuited to rural life, the urban communities
were boosted by many who dropped out of the colonies. The major
communities, aside >from Yekaterinoslav the capital, included Alexandrovsk
(Zaparozhe), Pavlograd, Orekhov, Tokmak, Melitopol, Berdyansk, Mariupol and
others.

In effect the original colonists drew in their wake significant numbers of
their hometown relatives or neighbours >from Lithuania, Latvia and Belarus
who constituted the majority in the developing urban communities in
Yekaterinoslav.

I would point out that there are very few sources about this region's
Jewish population. English books refer briefly to the region. Most of the
other sources are in Russian, particularly a very detailed history of the
region which includes many statistical analyses. There is one book in
Hebrew devoted to the subject.

If further information is of interest I will be happy to expand.

For the record, my late mother's great-great-grandparents on all sides were
amongst the first colonists in the region, hence my involvement in
research over more than three decades.
