Films >from Beit Hatfutsot collections, with Rivka Aderet
Family names of the Jews of Lithuania, with Haim Ghiuzeli: In
Lithuania, Jews started adopting family names at the turn of the 19th
century, when the Russian authorities forced the Jews to take family
names. The discussion will focus on the type and meaning of the Jewish
family names documented in Lithuania. Understanding family names is

Anders' army was organized in the town of Buzuluk ( between Samara and
Orenburg) in Southern Russia. Bacause most of the potential soldiers were in
Central Asia Anders Army organized mobilization points and later units in
Uzbekistan, Kyrgizstan etc.

I would recommend two sources :

An excellent and very factual documentary movie made about 15 years ago in
the USA : " Saved by deportation"

A book by Benjamin Meirtchak " Jews - Officers in the Polish Armed Forces
1939-1945" issued in Tel-Aviv in 2001. Mostly list of names including
Ander's Army.

Uzbekistan was the main base of the Anders Army. I'm researching this
episode in order to locate data sources on the Jewish soldiers
that serve in the army.

It is possible that one of the family was with the army. Not to mention the
fact that almost 40,000 civilians were evacuated with the army to Persia
and the Middle East.

As so it is wise to look in the lists of the 115, 000 Polish persons that
left Uzbekistan in 1942.

And last remark...in Tashkent exist a unique archive. In the center of the
city on metal plates are the details of tens of thousands of citizens
of the country - victims of WW2.

There were an INCREDIBLE number of Polish Jews that ended up
in Uzbekistan as they were scattered through WWII.

My own in-laws went to Samarkand, Uzbekistan after being released
from a Siberian work camp only because word had spread
that so many Polish Jews were heading there.

Re: contact with the Tashkent archives #poland

I have received many responses to my letter.
I would like to clarify:
The list of the Anders Army soldiers can be found in the Sikorski Institute
in London...some names are missing.
There is no list of the civilians that were evacuated with the army. I am
looking in Tashkent for such a list. I will let know if there will be
progress.
Photos of the graves of soldiers and civilians that died in Iran can be
found on the internet. Look for "Doulab" and " Beheshtieh" Jewish Cemetery.
If your relative served in the army his personal file can be obtained from
The British military authority.

New education course - The Jewish in Jewish Genealogy #germany

Nancy Holden
 

JewishGen Education will offer a new online forum - The Jewish in
Jewish Genealogy
May 1 - May 29

Genealogy is more than statistics and facts. This class will give
you a chance to understand the Jewish immigration experience and
we'll discover tricks and tips to successfully search for Jewish
ancestry.

With each passing generation, the torch passes to children whose
lifestyle is further >from the immigrant experience. Now we have to
dig deep in order to bring up images and voices >from the past, to
understand and recreate their lives.

This class will cover Jewish institutions in the old country and
in the U.S. It will help a researcher discover patterns and
prejudices that affected the way life was lived in the new country.
Jewish life cycles, customs and culture, origin of family names and
naming practices, assimilation and acculturation, migrations
patterns and surname mapping will be part of this study.

For this class a student will work on one immigrant family and the
town (or city) where they first settled -- New York, Chicago, St.
Louis or points west. The course includes general research tasks
and assignments to give insight into the Jewish search.

Class is taught in a *forum* setting, private to this class. The
site is open at all times for students to post. The instructor
answers posts daily. Cost is $120 for 4 weeks. The full class
description is at
http://www.jewishgen.org/education/description.asp?course=40022.

Researching Rivka Englander, Cracow-area #galicia

Kasman Family <family@...>
 

Rivka Englander, my paternal grandmother, was born in the Cracow
environs, likely in the early 1880s. She married Asher Zelig
Kernkraut and they had 5 sons: the eldest being Samuel b. 1905,
Chaim (Charles), Menachem Mendl (Max), Israel & Jakob.

To my knowledge, Rivka perished in the Holocaust. 4 sons had
emigrated to Trinidad prior to WWII while Jakob remained in Poland
and presumably also perished, along with his family.

Rivka is the only Englander on my tree: I do not know the names of
her parents, nor of any siblings, so this is a brick wall for me! I'd be
very interested to hear if anyone has a connection with this Rivka
Englander. I think she might be related to Sperlings.

Best regards,

looking for information on Josef TARLER #galicia

Marina Fuchs <marina.fuchs@...>
 

I have found articles which mention that Peter (ne Josef) Tarler (born
on January 3, 1794 in Holohory, Zolochivskyi district, Lviv Oblast,
Ukraine) came to Wielkie Oczy (now eastern Poland) before 1813 and
married the daughter of the local rabbi. The chief rabbi of Lemberg
(Lviv), Jacob Orenstein excommunicated the "maskil" Tarler in 1816,
and the rabbi of Wielkie Oczy ordered his son in law to leave town
and divorce his wife, which she did not want. He left town with his
sons, and lived in Lviv, where he died January 23, 1854. There he
worked first as collector of tax on ritual slaughter, and then as the
official censor of Hebrew and Yiddish books.

I am looking for sources to substaniate this, and also wish to know
in particular :

1. who would have been the rabbi of Wielkie Oczy at the time? Was
there more than one rabbi? Could it have been Mordechai Hertz
Teomim listed as the rabbi of Wielkie Oczy in 1821? What is known
about him?

2. Is it known who were all the children of Peter (ne Josef ) Tarler? I
have the names of three daughters (Klara Anna, Josephine and
Klotilde) but not the names of the sons.

Josef Tarler is on the list of Galicician Celebrities Page 105,
(Translation of Medina va-chachameha : Toledot kol ha-hachamim
ve-has-soferim Written by: Gershom Bader Published in Austria &
New York, 1934 ) but there is no library in the country in which I live
that has it.
