Searching: SRAGOVICH/FAITELEVICH/FYTELSON from Belarus #general

anthony_lewis@...
 

In my researches of my SCHLEIFSTEIN (SHLIFSHTEIN) family from
Belarus (Nesvizh and other areas of Minsk and Wilna goberniyee), I
find a SRAGOVICH family living in the same domicile with my family
for quite some time. Feldblyum's book on Jewish names indicates
that Faivel or Faitel were kinnuim of Shrago, so it is possible
that the FAITELEVICHs who married into my SHLIFSHTEINs might be
closely related to (or the same family as) the SRAGOVICHs.
Please contact me if any of these names might be related to you.

Thanks,

Tony Lewis

Restution of Private property (land and Buildings) #poland

DC <dcinotti@...>
 

What is the process for the restitution of privately owned buildings and
property (land) taken during wartimes. After the war my grandfather and gr.
uncle inquired and were told by Polish officials to return to Poland. Out of
fear they did not. What is the process today?

Many Thanks

JRI-Poland now a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. #poland

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland
 

The Board of Jewish Records Indexing - Poland is pleased to announce
several developments that will make it even easier for you to continue to
provide the financial support that -- along with the work of many of you
in Shtetl CO-OPs -- has marked an exciting year for the growth of our
organization.

First, Jewish Records Indexing-Poland, Inc. has been granted
tax-exempt status as a 501 (c)(3) organization. Effective immediately,
contributions by U.S. citizens are now tax deductible in the U.S.

Second, to help facilitate contributions, JRI-Poland is also pleased
to advise that Visa credit card facilities are now available. We are
particulary pleased to offer this convenience to JRI-Poland supporters
from around the world who do not have ready access to U.S. Dollar
accounts or facilities.

As we draw close to Rosh Hashana and are reminded to look back
on the past year, many of us can look back on our last year of research
with great satisfaction. If searches on JRI-Poland's database have
played a role in the research successes you have had, this is a good
time to make a financial contribution to help us get more records into
our databases and bring about more successes for you and hundreds
of other researchers.

As we continue to add Shtetl CO-Ops and to index more records under
the PSA Project, your contribution will help JRI-Poland's database grow.

Make your contribution today! Of course, you may still mail a check.
But if you choose to use your Visa card, here's how:

1. Print the Visa form on the JRI-Poland web site at

When I came of age, I noticed that the name and address
of each voter was posted at the entrance to the polling place. Crooked
politicians would hire people to go >from precinct to precinct...
Al Rosenfield
Voters lists are still posted at the entrance, no identification is
required to prove you are who you say you are, nor do you have to sign
anything that says you have voted. A volunteer sits at a table and just
checks off that you've voted. I've questioned this policy several times
and asked how they know who I say I am. The response is "we trust you". I
also find it an invasion of privacy to have the list of voters public in
that way. Not that I care if people know I'm a registered voter, but
because it lets everyone know whether or not their neighbors are. That's
nobody's business.

Personally, I now use the absentee ballot to vote.

Additional Wyszkow indices now on-line. #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

There has been a slip up... And it's my fault!

When the first group of indices >from the new Jewish Records Indexing -
Poland / Polish State Archives project were released and added to the
JRI-Poland database just prior to the announcement at the Los Angeles
Summer Seminar, some Wyszkow data slipped between the cracks.

This has now been corrected and the indices for an additional 353 birth
records and 104 marriage records for the Wyszkow for the years
1894 to 1896 are now on-line.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause researchers who
have already placed orders with the Polish State Archives for
photocopies of Wyszkow vital records.

I don't know, but it _did_ ring a bell. A friend (perhaps relative) has
passed on the following piece of information to me >from the archives Dvinsk
about one with a surname of common interest to us:

"1869: Application or a Jewish merchant in the city of Dinaburg (Dvinsk),
Chaim Yelev, for conversion to Christianity and concerning allocation of
lands in the province of Yekaterinoslavsky"

I just got the idea that, there must have been a possibility to get land in
Yekaterinoslavsky - but it seems only for Christians - or was it to lure
Jews into conversion? Thus, it might have been one of the straws that Jews
could try to get hold of to "keep afloat"? Or maybe even a distant
chance/hope to be able to get out? As - my guess only! - it would
(possibly!?) be easier for a Christian to get permission to emigrate!?

It would be interesting to hear what information others have on this. The
above quotation is the first time I have encountered something like that.

I am sure, that someoone out there know something about it ... I'm an
experience genealogist, but a novice in Jewish genealogy....

Two small problems ?? #lithuania

Dear friends of LitvaKSIG.

In the first place I want to send here for all the brilliant ones and fighters
components of this important genealogy list and discoveries of our Brazil
wishes of A Happy New Year.

In the second place, I would like to know how to solve two small problems:

The first of them is that my e-mail moved. Now it is:
aronson@digiall.psi.br, and I would like to know who to communicate
to do the respective change.

The second of my small problems is that thanks to List, I met one of the
most important people of the European Judaism, that he is Mr.
Patrick Gordon, of Paris - France, and as I had problems with my computer I
lost his e-mail address, and I need to enter in contact with him.
Like this if you could not supply me the address, perhaps they can publish
my request on the list, and if he still is a subscriber, he can answer me.


At once I thank and I wish that in the year of 5.759, this list, its
competent management, and its zealous subscribers, continue
forming the great fraternity to return in the great cause of preservation of our
traditional Jewish values.

Belarussian Migrations to Ukraine #belarus

Bkhait@...
 

Reading Jerry Touger's post reminded me of something Boris Feldblyum related
several times at the LA conference: many Jews >from Lithuania and Belarus
migrated to the Ukraine in the 1830s and 1840s because they could settle land
and farm there.

While this does not exactly answer Jerry's question, I think it does serve as
a reminder to all of us that our relatives did not necessarily stay in one
place, one gubernia, or even one country.
