Searching for Shoikhet and Chausovsky families currently in Lithuania #lithuania

Todd Cohn
 

I came across a Yad Vashem Page of Testimony that was submitted by a relative of mine named Feiga Shoikhet in 1991.

At that time she lived in Lithuania, Vilnius, Erfurto str 48/9.

I'm looking for suggestions on how I might be able to confirm if she or her family still lives in Lithuania today and of course try and get in touch with her.  

 

Other relatives of hers are her:

Father Shimon Dovid

Sister Chava Shoikhet Chausovsky 

Brother in law Semyon Chausovsky

Nephew Vladimir Chausovsky 

Alexander Chausovsky   

 

Places the family has lived are:

Odessa 

Grossulova

Moscow

 

Thank you for your help.

Do you think having a lawyer expedited the process or made it easier? If so, could you please share or PM the name of your attorney? I'm finding gathering the necessary documents daunting. I'm also worried because my German is so poor. Thank you.


Re: NYC Adoption Records 1880-1910 #usa #general

Getting adoption records in NY applies to the adoptees and their descendents only.

It is entirely possible that given the time frame specified and that the "adoption" may have been within the family, that no formal adoption was made.

Gittle ABRAMOWITZ-New Haven, Ct. 19th century #belarus #usa #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My great great grandmother, Gittle ABRAMOWITZ, came to New Haven, Ct.
somewhere between 1870 and 1890 as a widow with four youngish
orphans. The childrens' names were David (?), Sarah, Meir and Kalman.
She may have remarried on the way from Novarodok (from where she left)
and her family name may have changed.

She supposedly was in the silversmith trade (with her second husband).
One child, Meir (my great grandfather) as a child was sent to
Jerusalem (then Palestine) and the other 3 stayed in the USA. David,
the eldest, went to Boston and eventually got a job in a dept.store .
Again ,supposedly, rose to managerial level . At some point in her
life she married a LAZAROFF from London.

Sarah seems to have had a grandson, Tom, who lived ( and studied ?)
in Boston. He was about my mother's age, (b. 1914). Father may not
have been jewish. Sarah and her husband (name unknown to me) lived
and/or vacationed on Coney Island, NYC, during the 1930s

The problem with the credibility of the above data is that it derives
primarily from an autobiography of one of Meir's granddaughters which
was garnered by information received by word of mouth ("supposedly"
above). The writer of this autobiography says in the introduction
that her book " is oral history" rather than sources based. Also some
of the information is based on interviews with elderly family members
who are no longer with us.

Gittle was also supposedly related to Rabbi Isaac Simcha HOROWITZ of
Hartford, Ct. who passed away in 1936. That is my guess why she came
to New Haven in the first place (but then again why not to Hartford?)

If the above sounds familiar to anyone or can be confirmed somehow in
New Haven, I would be very grateful to hear.

BTW, the autobiography mentioned above is called : "A Child of the Desert"
by Adina Katzoff (ne ABRAMOWITZ)

Harry Klayman - Need Information #usa

BUDGAIN@...
 

I have been trying to find information on my great grandfather Harry H. Klayman for many years but can never find anything after he left Petersburg, VA around 1907.
We believe we emigrated from Germany or Poland and was born on June 28, 1871. He married Martha Lamb in 1892 a native of Petersburg, VA and they had 5 daughters.
I cannot find any emigration records on him and last documented information for him was a 1900 census taken in Petersburg, VA of which they spelled the last name Clayman.
When he left Petersburg at the age 30 not trace of him can be found. I do have a photo of him attached to this request.

If anyone has knowledge about him, please let me know.

Does anyone have (or have link to) Reckendorf records (looking for Baum) - matrikeln, B/M/D, etc? #germany

ledererrob@...
 

Hi All.  This is and another are my first posts in 15+ years, since GerSIG days.

I'm looking for birth, marriage, death, matrikel, name change, and other records for Burgpreppach.  My target ancestor is Dorrit Dorothea Baum b. ca. 1806-15 and next known to be in NYC in 1836.  Later Reckendorf records may still show family members of hers even if I can't get to ones that include her specifically. 

Does anyone have these records?  Is there an online archive that contains them?  Being that it's Bavaria, I think it's not available online.

Thank you,
Rob Lederer

Re: Grodno Gubernia - Family names Mattis/Matesky and Weinberg #belarus

Diane Jacobs
 

Here is an easy way to understand what a Gubernia is:

New York State similar to Gubernia
New York County similar to a district within  the Gubernia.
New York ie Manhattan similar to a city, town or village within a district.

So you have Bereza, Pruzhany District,
Grodno Gubernia ie town, district, state.

Hope this helps.

Hi Alex

Whilst I can't assist on your specific enquiry, my grandmother (Kaminky) was from Grodno Guberrnia. and settled in the UK

I wanted to ask what your understanding is of this place?..the way my grandmother described it to my mother, it was like a stetl (Fiddler on the Roof images) but Gubernia is a province/county/region encompassing the large city of Grodno (now in Belarus)...what is your view?

Re: JSTOR Expands Free Access During Pandemic #announcements

Alberto Guido Chester
 

Dear Jewishgenners
 
Yesterday Jan Meisels Allen posted the announcement of free access for JSTOR.
 
For those not used to looking in books or academic sources for the CONTEXT of our genealogical searches, may I strongly recommend to take advantage of these databases that are free during these harsh quarantine times.
 
In my personal case, understanding the context of time and place where my ancestors lived has been as important as gathering their names and dates of vital records.
 
JSTOR is one of the most complete repositories of academic work and looking for key words like hasidism or feudal Poland or Polish magnates or even shtetls might open a new window in your research.
 
Of course, there are other very good sources like Y.S: Agnon, Israel Singer and Isaac Bashevis SInger´s books for the ambience and life in shtetls or the recent book the Golden AGe Shtetl: A new history of Jewish Life in East Europe (which deals with a previous time before the great wave of migration to the West began). Some chapters of the latter are available also in JSTOR.
 
As a historian and hobbyist genealogist, please forgive myself for giving this insistent advice.

Regards 

Alberto Guido Chester

Buenos Aires, Argentina
 
PS: I have no personal interest in any of the sources mentioned.


Was Samuel Miller of Riga really Shevah Starkovsky? #latvia #general

robgoudey@...
 

Hello. I'm researching for a biography of Prof Julius Sumner Miller. Julius' father was Samuel Miller, married to Sarah Newmark, both having arrived in America (NewYork City) from Europe (Riga in what was part of Russia) between 1882 and 1884. Records relating to Sam Miller also name him as Shmuel Miller, Samuel Stark and Shevah Starkovsky. Does anybody have information that might help me to understand Sam better? Please let me know. Thanks, Rob.

Re: KATZOFF not Cohanim #names

Jerry Scherer
 

If the parents never registered their religious marriage, then the civil authorities would consider the child illegitimate and would then give the child the mother's surname. Consider the following scenario. A baby boy is born, "illigimatelly" where the mother's surname is Cohen and the father is not a Kohen. Therefore, the baby boy would be registered with the Cohen surname and not be part of the Kohanim tribe.This boy and future generations of sons will now have the Cohen surname and not be Kohanim.
