Mogilev Podolskiy, Ukraine. #general

Gillian Zebaida
 

Can anyone out there who have already done some research in Molilev
Podolskiy, tell me where they got their information from. I went to the LDS
in central London and asked for information, and was told that they had
information only on Mogilev, Belarus "and it has to be the same,
dear".....When the information came, it was of course, totally useless.
Does anyone know if, in fact, LDS has the information that I require?
Thanks
Gillian Zebaida.

Re: Rabbi Obituaries #general

Another possibility is the Bronx Historical SOciety...they are
expanding now and will have even more accessible information
soon...it was an enjoyable visit..it's up near Montefiore Hospital.
They have microfilms of the local Bronx News....I believe the
42nd St Library has copies of a Bronx Jewish Newspaper. The
Jewish Theological Seminary on Broadway and about 122 St also
has a wealth of accessible information and helpful librarians.

On a similar subject, the WPA published a list of synagogue
memberships during the Depression...I found the book listing all
the synagogues whose membership they catalogued while browsing
in the Genealogy Div of the 42 ST Library, but have never been
able to find the 2 volume membership list of my grandparents'
synagogue, Sons of Eliezer, Moses and Machizey 497 E 139 St,
although I have written to Waltham, YiVO, Cincinnatti and the
Jewish Historical SOciety...does anyone have further suggestions?

what kind of name for a nice jewish.. #general

IsraelP <p2o5rock@...>
 

What is the derivation of the female name Eige?

And is there a particular affinity of the male name
Fischel for a preceding Ephraim or Yeroham, or does
it just seem that way to me?

Photographs for official purposes #general

David Ziants <davidz@...>
 

I was recently told by a second cousin who had heard >from his late
grand-mother that a photographer came to the shtetl of Narewka once a year
and took group photographs of the population for official purposes.

The period we are talking about is before 1910, and obviously this could not
have happened before photography was invented.

Does anyone know about this form of registeration of the population?
On what level of government was this authorised?
Did the photos survive, and if so >from where can they be accessed?

Searching the Jewishgen archives for: photo OR photograph OR photographer
didn't come up with anything.

PS. Anyone who has a specific interest in Narewka (in the Bialystok region)
can contact the mailing list: narewka@j-geek.org

Am seeking BOMZE/BOMSER background >from Zloczow. My uncle Herman lived
in Brooklyn and was one of the pillars of the Pennsylvania Ave.
Synagogue. I am aware of the existance of his children and
grandchildren, but cannot find information about the family background
in Europe. Was there a landmanschaft organization active in the New
York City area >from the city of Zloczow. I have contacted the city
fathers in Lviv, the seat of the government in the area and have not
been successful in learning anything about my forbears. I would
appreciate any information you can provide. Many thanks,

Mel Wolfsont

that is a wonderful database. The site, the Ohio Historical society, is a
