ViewMate Translation Request - Russian, GORECKI, WAINTROP #general

Genealogy BLW
 

Dear Genners,

I missed this one when I posted the last request for translation. It is
located at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/responselist.asp?key=38676

It is a birth record for Aydla GORECKI in 1901. I believe that she is
named after Aydla (WAINTROP) GORECKI who had recently passed away. Thus,
she should be a descendant of the particular GORECKI line I am trying to
track into the 20th century.

I need the genealogical information such as parents' names,
dates and/or ages, home towns. witnesses' names and any notes.

Please use the ViewMate form as replies remain in the JewishGen
archives.

Thank you for your help.

ViewMate Translation Requests, Russian, Markuszow & Opole Lubelskie (GORECKI, LOTERSZTEIN) #general

Genealogy BLW
 

Dear Genners,
I have posted two vital records in Russian at the following ViewMate
locations:

One is the marriage record for Abram Icek GORECKI and Ruchla Hinda
LOTERSZTEIN in 1873. I have already found birth records for two of their
sons, so this record should confirm that I have the correct individuals
and provide information on their parents.

The second record is potentially more interesting. It appears to be
signed by Naftula GORECKI as the father. Two of his sons emigrated to
North America, one by a circuitous route. There is rumor of a third
brother who emigrated to Canada, but no one can remember his name,
position in birth order or anything else about him. I hope that this is
the third brother who emigrated. If not, it adds another piece to the
family whose history has confounded their descendants.

Dear Genners,

How do I go about getting a copy of a marriage license >from 1918 in

which was returned undeliverable. I have the names of the bride and groom,
the license number >from an index, and the year only. Thanks for any help.

SHATIL and RAIKHZELIGMAN #general

Angie Elfassi
 

Hi,

Im rechecking information about my RAIKHZELIGMAN (REICHZELIGMAN)
family and have found that Ginde/Hinde Rokhel d/o Yosel RAIKHZELIGMAN
married to Yosel Leyb s/o Ezra SHATIL. They have, so far as I can see,
4 children between the years of 1874 - 1879.

Izrail b 1874
Bas-Sheva b 1879
Azriel b 1881
Bendet b 1887

On the LitvakSIG births list - where I got the above information from,
it says that the father Yosel Leyb SHATIL was >from Panevezys.

Does the above connect to anyones ancestors?

Also on the LitvakSIG marriage and divorces page, there are a lot of SHATILS/
SAITELIS /SHAITEL marriages registered but not Ginde/Hinde and Yosel.

Thanks in advance,

Are the names the same? #lithuania

RICHARD FRIEDMAN
 

I have recently confirmed through two sources that my G Mother Paya
Beilia [Rebecca] KURLIANDCHIK was born in Janova, Lithuania on
Feb.15, 1881. She was the daughter of Shmerel ben Shmerel of Seta.
Her mother was Sara-Godes. She married my GFather Israel Moishe
POCK/POK of Globokye in Jan.1904

I am trying to create a family tree and have reviewed the many
lists and databases on JewishGens KehillaLinks and the LitvakSIG lists.

In reviewing these lists, I find various names that could alsovbe
my gg grandparents. ie Could Shmerel also be called Sherlo, Shmerk ,
Shumel Shimel, Shamreyah etc. in one place and another name in another
place? Is Sora- Godes the same person as Sara Girsha or Sara Goda? Could
Khiena be the same as Chana, Henna or Hanna ? BTW, I know that spelling
doesn`t count and that the names are transliterated >from Cyrillic.

Any and all ideas would be helpful and are deeply appreciated.

New Book on early 20th century Lithuanian Jewry #lithuania

Juan-Paul Burke <juan-paul.burke@...>
 

Sarid, A. 2015. There was once a home: memories of the Lithuanian
shtetls published in the Afrikaner Idishe Tsaytung-African Jewish
Newspaper, 1952-54. Translated by Veronica Belling. Cape Town:
Jewish Publications - South Africa, Isaac & Jessie Kaplan Centre
for Jewish Studies & Research.
*
This collection of stories and anecdotes of life in early 20th
century Lithuanian shtetls, sourced >from the JOHANNESBURG Yiddish
newspaper, Afrikaner Idishe Tsaytung and brought to light for an
English speaking audience, is a poignant reminder for today's
South African Jewry of their Lithuanian ancestors. It is also
a monument to the sacred memory of those who perished at
the claws of the Nazi animal and so is a form of Yizkor Buch.

Most of the articles are authored by Mr. A. SARID but there are
also articles by a variety of others. The articles were presented
as two series between 1952 and 1954.

Religious and secular life in the shtetl is revealed and described
via articles long and short. Some shtetls receiving more attention
than others. There are also a number of photographs where many may
recognise names or even faces of once Lithuanian families that have
now become South African. There is a 7 page index which includes
many surnames found in the book.

The 26 Lithuanian and 4 Polish shtetls/towns discussed include
Aniksht[ANYKSCIAI], Birzh[BIRZAI], KELME(Lithuania), Kovarsk[KOVARSKUS],
Krakinova[KREKENAVA], Kupishok[KUPISKIS], Kurshan[KURSENAI],
Linkova[LINKUVA], LODZ(Poland), Oran[VARENA], OSTROLENKA(Poland),
Plungian[PLUNGE], Ponevezh[PANEVEZYS], Poshelat[PUSALOTAS],
Poshvitin[PASVITINYS], Posvol[PASVALYS], Radvilishok[RADVILISKIS],
Rakishok[ROKISKIS], Rasin[RASEINIAI], ROZHAN(Poland),
Shavli[SIAULIAI], Shidlova[SILUVA], Telz[TELSIAI](within entry for
Poshelat), Vashilkova[WASILKOV](Poland), Vashki[VASKAI],
Vilkomir[UKMERGE], Yanishok[JONISKIS], Yanova[JONAVA],
Yurburg[JURBARKAS] and ZHAGER. There is also a picture each
of people >from Vilna[VILNIUS] and Shatt[SETA].

In an article on Shidlova there is a depiction of a wedding
that is inspiring and heart-warming, what a wonderful experience
it must have been! Some old-worldly ways seem to have been lost
in our modern times yet some things remain the same.

There is an article on the esteemed Rabbi Yosef KAHANEMAN, the
Ponevezher Rov, who would visit South Africa in those times.

Rakishok is given an enchanting description, reputedly the only
100% Chasidic shtetl of the predominantly Mitnagdic Lithuania.
This is one for the Chabadniks and Rakishokers to enjoy.

A tale I would highlight is the moral of, "Mote, the Grobe head",
found in the entry for the shtetl of Oran.

A particularly exciting find for me was the extraordinary
description of an individual, Reb Motel POGRIMANSKIS , who
was a legend at the Yeshivah I attended in JOHANNESBURG.
A Rabbi & Gaon of whom stories heard in Yeshivah are here
corroborated besides those that have been passed down >from Telz
to CLEVELAND to JOHANNESBURG. This is one for the Yeshivaniks
and Telzers to enjoy.

This is truly a praiseworthy achievement of Dr Veronica Belling
and her supporters to have ably brought these articles to light.
