Hi David,
You were right. Both places in Arthur letter: Pinsk and Telechan (the proper
spelling is Telekhany in Russian) were (are) located in Minsk gubernia not far
away >from the border of Minsk and Grodno gubernia. Now they are Minsk and
Grodno oblast'.
SOURCE: old prerevolutionary Russian encyclopedia in 40 volumes by the name
"Brockgause and Ephron" published in 1897-1907 (it took 10 years for all
volumes to be assembled).

Listings of Rabbis or a Formal Rabbinical Assoc. for Philadelphia, PA #general

Ricki L. Zunk <rickiz@...>
 

My maternal great grandfather was "Rebbe Yechezekiel Ha'Cohanim" [Hyman
COHAN in English]. He and his wife and two sons arrived in America in
1895, and settled in Philadelphia, PA. He died shortly after the birth
of his only daughter (my grandmother). She was born in April 1898
(according to her City of Phila. marriage license). So, we figure that
Rebbe Yechezekiel (Hyman) probably died some time between the summer of
1898 and 1903. It is possible that The Rebbe was a practicing rabbi in
Philly in that era ["the turn of the century"].

Is there/was there an organization or fraternity of rabbis in Philly at
that time? Please advise. Perhaps they have records which might help
me to find more information about my great grandfather.

TIA,
Ricki Randall Zunk

Dear Jewishgenners:
During the past several weeks I have been sending messages to the regional
Jewish Genealogy Societies and Special Interest Groups re the uncertain
future of the Search Bureau for Missing Persons in Jerusalem which has been,
and hopefully will continue to be, in the very capable hands of Batya
Unterschatz. I have been experiencing some technical difficulties with my
computer, and as a result some of you have probably received multiple
messages while others remain undelivered.

To those of you who have received duplicate messages, I apologize for the
redundancy. If you have not as yet been contacted, or would like to receive
information as to plans for protecting this invaluable resource for Jewish
genealogists, please contact me privately at <bsiegel@netmedia.net.il>.

 I'm still trying to find out where Hirsch Melech (Herman) SEIBEL is buried. I
 followed the leads sent to me by kind JGenners after my last Avon Ave post.
 I've requested his death certificate >from the NJ archives three times, giving
 a large span of years, but came up blank ...

This was the synagogue to which my paternal grandfather belonged. It
moved in about 1940 to a corner site near Beth Israel Hospital in
Newark; I do not remember the name of the street.

The name of the synagogue is "Adas Israel and Mishnayes". Its cemetery
is on South 10th Street, Newark.

Writing a letter in Polish #general

Peter Blood <BLOODP1@...>
 

I plan to write Poland to request information on a relative who lived in
Nowy Targ, Austria, before that region became part of Poland. I have the
address of the regional government. I need to locate resources to help
me write the letter and someone who could assit me in translating it
into Polish. I do not know any Polish. Any suggestions?

"Dzh" is just the Russian way of expressing the English "J" sound, since they
don't have a letter in their alphabet that has this sound.
Therefore, the name is Ja-LEEL (I'm guessing it's stressed on the 2nd
syllable).

Sorry, I don't have a Soviet Atlas nearby to check its location.
