Re: "Nee" German, Yiddish, Polish? #general

Paula Eisenstein Baker <eisenbak@...>
 

Nee (there's an accent on the first "e," so it's pronounced like the
English "nay") is French for "born." It's used in English, and -- from
what you report -- it sounds as if it was used universally, at least in
languages written in Roman characters.

Can anyone tell us whether it is
used in Russian, say?

Searching: Selig ONGEIBERG #general

ng51ngd@...
 

Selig ONGEIBERG, ca 1840, is the known progenitor. My gm, Faya
ONGEIBERG, sister of Simcha ONGEIBERG, was one of five children, Yankel,
Leeba, Chaim, & Nyome were the other. However, I am seeking at this
moment cousins of my mother, Ettie Schultz Greenfeld, daughter of Faya.
These are Zalman, a diabetic, living in Minsk and Greca. The family comes
from Minsk and Slutsk . Zalman married Valentina CHUCHMINA. Other names
include: SLUTSKY, MASLIANSKAYA, YELYEVZAGAR.

Jewish Record Indexing-Poland Shtetl CO-OP news! #general

Kesher@...
 

Soon we will mark the first anniversary of the Jewish Records Indexing-
Poland’s (JRI-Poland) Shtetl CO-OP program! We now stand at 51 Shtetl CO-OPs!
With the support of the Shtetl CO-OP program (
<A HREF="http://www1.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/jri-plin.htm">Shtetl CO-OP
Initiatives Page</A> ) and the new Polish State Archives Program (
<A HREF="http://www1.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/pres798a.htm">JRI-Poland Press
Release July 14, 1998</A>) the JRI-Poland database now contains over 350,000
records!! I would not be surprised if we reach 500,000 by the end of December
1998.

There are so many people to thank for our achievements. There are the Shtetl
CO-OP leaders and their many volunteers who hail >from all over the world. The
project is truly a global program. Our Shtetl CO-OP leaders represent 5
Countries, 11 States, 2 Provinces. The volunteers come >from every continent
except Anartica. I am still looking for some more southern hemisphere Shtetl
CO-OP leaders. There are other groups which support this program. There is
the Quality Control Team that reviews the data for errors and the database
team that adds their finishing touches before the data goes live. Of course
there are the tireless efforts of our Database Manager, Michael Tobias, our
webmaster, Steven Zedek and our Project Coordinator, Stanley Diamond. There
is the support of the JRI-Poland board and our hosts Jewishgen. Many thanks
to all!

Don’t just sit there! Does your family originate in Poland? Look at the
list of Shtetl CO-OP groups ( <A HREF="http://www1.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/jri-
plin.htm">Shtetl CO-OP Initiatives Page</A> ). If you find your town of
interest listed then contact the coordinator and offer your help. Can’t
find your town? Then download the list of Polish towns that the LDS has
microfilmed. (<A HREF="http://www1.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/jri-lds.htm">LDS
Polish Jewish Microfilm Lists</A> ) If you find your town on the list and your
willing to get to work then contact me and we’ll sign you up. We have a Step
by Step guide on how to form a shtetl CO-OP. Check it out, it has many
helpful tips. <A HREF="http://www1.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/step.htm">Shtetl CO-

Hello,

I am researching the AVRUTIN Family, who came originally >from Mogilev.

Others went to St Petersburg and Odessa.
There are currently Avrutins in Petersburg and Moscow, as well as UK and
the Continent, and in North America.

Also >from Mogilev, who emigrated to England, were cousins called REES

Kishinev 1903 Pogrom - List of Victims #general

Alan Greenberg <ALAN@...>
 

An almost complete list of the victims of the Kishinev 1903 Easter
Pogrom (Local Julian Calendar: 6-7 April; Western Gregorian
Calendar: 19-20 April) has now been posted and linked to the
Kishinev ShtetLinks page. The address is:

http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetLinks/kishinev/PogromVictims1903.htm

The list is a merger of several published imcomplete lists, but it
does identify about 46 of the 49 Jews who died during or as a result
of the pogrom.

Thanks to Warren Blatt, who generously (and quickly) added this link
the the now ownerless Kishinev ShtetLinks.
