Translation from Cyrillic Russian to English #general

Lynne Kaffko
 

I have submitted the death record for Chana Kawka. I believe she is the
first wife of Leib Gerszk Kawka. I am hoping to get a complete
translation of the document, but if not possible as much information
that could help me identify her. Such as age, name of parents,
husband and surviving children's names. Also, the city is listed in
the upper left hand corner is listed as Edwabno. Could that
actually be Jedwabne? Thank you very much for your help.

Seeking Advice on Visiting Boryslav, Turka, Vaslui #general

Noah Lapidus <lapidus.noah@...>
 

Dear JewishGen Community-
I hope this message finds you well. Next week I leave for Eastern
Europe to fulfill a life long dream of visiting my 20 ancestral
shtetls. Studying in Vilna, I plan to travel on weekends and holidays.
My journey begins in the south, where in addition to regional
landmarks I'll visit:
(1) Boryslav, Ukraine (in particular the neighborhood and former
municipality of Wolonka)
(2) Turka, Ukraine (in particular the nearby village of Ilnyk)
(3) Vaslui, Romania
I've built an itinerary based on the limited travelogues and
itineraries found on the internet, but I figured I'd reach out to this
community for further suggestions... In particular I am looking for
details on Jewish landmarks (cemeteries, memorials, synagogues, etc.)
and the best way to navigate these towns on a college budget. I really
appreciate your insight in advance, I can be reached by email at
lapidus.noah@gmail.com
Best,
Noah

new genealogy ebook on JGSGB #unitedkingdom

Arlene Beare
 

I have updated my Guide to Jewish genealogy in Latvia and Estonia and it
is now in ebook format. I must stress that this will be of use to
researchers not only >from Latvia and Estonia but elsewhere in Eastern Europe. =
There is a brief chapter on Sources in the UK and with one click you can
go to the National Archives. I have a brief Introduction to Genetic
Genealogy and one on Social Media with links to sites with a more detailed
explanation.
This is the first ebook published by JGSGB (Jewish Genealogical Society
Great Britain), who will benefit >from the sales. There are a few copies
in print format but we wanted it to be mainly published as an ebook.
The second edition of my Book was in 2006 and many telephone numbers and
addresses of Archives have changed as well as Internet sites and email
addresses which means that the second edition is now out of date.
These have all been updated. There is information on Passports both
Internal and External.
The book contains the excellent chapter written by Nick Evans on Emigration
detailing how our Ancestors got to other Countries >from Latvia always
remembering that many Lithuanians may also have sailed >from Libau now
Liepaja.

THE URL is
http://shop.jgsgb.org.uk/

The book is listed under featured publications and you can buy it for £5.00.
You will receive am email giving you a username and password to access the
site in the future and another email with download details. The book is in
pdf format and easily navigable.
