Scattered Stones, Shattered Seeds: The
Story of a Shtetl and a Family Who Lived There

By Myrna Neuringer Levy

Family mysteries often remain tangled for decades, just waiting for
someone to pick up the thread and begin to unravel the web.
Filled with questions, the author puzzles over her family history.
What was life like for her father growing up in the Galician
shtetl of Borchov (Borszczow) at the turn of the last century?
Why did her Grandpa leave for New York so suddenly? And why did her
Grandma never leave, even after her two sons did?

Searching PAES and SINA #general

Luciana Telles <telleslu@...>
 

Maria Joanna PAES :
I found two entries already looking forward to check if family
is related. She was originally somewhere else in Europe (around
1800-1900) and is believed to have moved later to Iberian
Peninsula area.

SINA :
Any leads for families that emigrated >from somewhere around Bagdad
or Iran or China to Iberian Peninsula area between 1750-1900's.

Thank you so much! Shabbat Shalom!

Deportation from the U.S. #general

Lorraine
 

One of my ancesters arrived in the US with her 4 children in December 1919.
She was travelling alone and the whereabouts of her husband remains
unknown, although she did have at least one sister married and living in
Boston. In April 1920, she and her children were deported back to the UK.

My simple question is Why?

They do not seem to have been held when arriving in the US, so would
they have had to fall foul of the authorities for some reason? How did
this process happen and how long did it take? Any insights would be
very appreciated as no one alive knows anything about it. Thanks.

1850 Revision List for Orlya has been translated #lithuania

Jrbaston
 

Dear fellow Lida District researchers:

I've just uploaded the translation of the 1850 Revision List
(as well as the 1851 Additional Revision List) for the town
of Orlya to our LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group site
(https://lidadistrict.shutterfly.com)

There are 219 individuals enumerated in this list. Surnames for the
1850 RL are on the homepage under Surname Lists (I am also
copying them at the bottom of this message).

Currently, this translated list is available only to qualified
contributors to the LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group.
After a period of approximately 18 months, it will be searchable
on the LitvakSIG All Lithuania Database and the JewishGen Belarus
Database.

A contribution of $100 US will guarantee you access to Excel
files of all translations of Lida District records (new and old)
for five calendar years, through December 31, 2019. **

With the completion of this list for Orlya, we have translated the
1850 Revision List for two-thirds of the 12 official Lida District
Towns of Registration (Eisiskes, Lida town, Orlya, Ostrynia,
Radun, Vasilishki, Voronova and Zheludok.) We have yet to
translate the 1850 RL for (in alphabetical order) Belitsa,
Novy Dwor, Rozhanka and Shchuchin.

** You can make a contribution by going to
www.litvaksig.org/contribute then scrolling down to District
Research and then choosing Lida District.

If you have any questions, please write to me at JRBaston@aol.com.

And to the participants in the Lida District Research Group,
thanks again for all your support.

you might try this web site. Many Riga newspapers in this archive,
but I do not think the one you are seeking exists there however.
Could be the obit might have been published in more than one place.

Two important lists translated #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

Litvak SIG has just received the following lists.

Jewish Lithuanian Army Volunteers - 1918-1923
Jews of Lithuania who survived WWII - 1946 - JDC (Joint Distribution
Committee)

Both lists will be available on every Litvak SIG District Research
Group (DRG) web site within the next week to ten days. If you are
part of a district research group, a contribution of any amount
would be very helpful so additional, similar lists can be translated.
Go to www.litvak.sig.org/contribute and designate your contribution
to the District General Fund.

If you are not part of a DRG, now would be a good time to join one
of the DRGs of your choice. You would not only be able to see these
two lists but also thousands of other records for the district that
have been translated.

Go to www.litvaksig.org/contribute and contribute $100 to LitvakSIG
SIG designated for the district of your choice. The contribution
is good for 5 years.
