Re: BELINKOV/OFF from Gomel - Look Other Cities #belarus

On a hunch, I checked the Mogilev Birth Index (fathers of baby boys born
1874-1894). I always advise people looking in Gomel to try Mogilev and
Bobruisk, as well as a look at Orsha, Shlov and Vitebsk. But the big three
seem to be Mogilev, Bobruisk and Gomel. Many families sent sons in business
and daughters to marry, likewise importing sons-in-laws, etc.

For BELINKOFF, there is none as such. However there are very, very many
BELENKI in every year, and one or two BLINCHOVSKI, BELENITSKI.

If you want a list of the BELENKI, please email me for the years and first
names.

Gomel? I am not even sure in which guberni Gomel is.

fyi: KAGAN #lithuania

Bernard Kouchel <koosh@...>
 

KAGANOFF (L) Kahn, a form of kohen becomes Kagan among Russian Jews.
The suffix -off indicates descent, and Kaganoff means "descended >from
a kohen."

(L) = Lineage, indicating family of priests or Levites.

Cohen and Kagan #lithuania

Jackye Sullins <jackye@...>
 

I think we've gotten off on a tangent once again. I wasn't in on the
very beginning of this train of thought but I believe there was ONE sane
voice in the wilderness. IF there were references to Kagan and Cohen
with page numbers, it really sounds like Beryl Kagan and Chester Cohen
(Shtetl Finder) books.

Seaching CHACEK, SZON #general

David Silverman <dsilv@...>
 

My paternal g-father Meyer CHACEK was probably born in
Mazowiecki (Makow), Poland, c.1865 and moved to Ostroleka(Ostrolenka) Poland. My p-g-mother Chaya Sura SZON was probably born in Ostroleka.
They remained in Poland and died at the hands of the Nazis.
They had at least 7 children, 6 of whom emigrated to US.
The one child who remained in Ostroleka suffered the same fate as my
g-parents. Her name was Hinde and she was second oldest.
Those that emigrated to US were:
Morris (Mendel) who adopted the surname SILVERMAN sometime after
arrival in N. America (which was probably Toronto, Canada, where he met a family named SILVERMAN--thus the name change!) 1886-1960; m.J.BERMAN &B.GOLDENBERG
Hinde CHACEK c.1891-c.1940
Sam SILVERMAN(CHACEK) 1896-1969 m,Unknown &S. LEWIS
Fannie CHACEK 1898-1989 m.N.OLDAK
Philip CHASEK 1901-1984 m.E.PELTINOWITZ
Esther CHACEK 1908- m.A.PERKAL
Elka CHACEK 1902- m.M.PERKAL

Re: TRITT Family #general

The group looking for the TRITT family should look in Montreal, Canada.
The family came to Montreal at the turn of the century and many members
still live there. I tried using the E.mail address listed with their
message and the message did not go through. If you have a better address
for them, I would be happy to give them more details.
