Seeking Brick Wall help FILVINSKY #lithuania

Susan Goldsmith
 

Seeking help for brick wall re: paternal maternal great grandmother
Asne Minna FILVINSKY GITTES

How can I search farther back in time to connect Asne Minna's
parents and family to the rest of the FILVINSKY family? I have
scoured JewishGen and cannot find Asne Minna, her brother or her parents.

My paternal maternal great grandmother Asne Minna FILVINSKY GITTES,
was a daughter of Shmuel Zev and Ester Filvinsky (maiden name unknown),
a sister of brother Muska Getsel Filvinsky (and probably other siblings).
My conundrum is how and where these four Filvinskys fit into the other
Filvinskys for whom I have a detailed and extensive Filvinsky tree
comprised of family originally >from Lithuania in the US, Russia,
and Israel. I am glad to provide the tree to you if you think you
may be able to spot a connection.


FILVINSKY, sometimes spelled PILVINSKY, was not a common name in
Lithuania. Importantly, two Osna Minnas, born in 1928, were named after
my Asne Minna: Elsa (Osna Minna) Philwin (Filvinsky) and Osna Minna
Goldstein Fenner. The first cousin, Elsa Philwin, appears in the extensive
US-Russian-Israeli Filvinsky tree; Osna Fenner does not. Elsa was the
granddaughter of Mikhel Aron FILVINSKY b. 1854 and Fannie (Feiga Liba SHUR,
and great granddaughter of Movsha Girsh FILVINSKY b.1834 and Malke
Leiba WULFOWITZ. My Asne Minna is in the middle of those two generations,
being b. ~1844, but neither she nor her father Shmuel Zev appears in the
Filvinsky tree. Shmuel Zev's name was on her matseva; both her parents'
names were on her death certificate. Elsa knew that she was named after
cousin Asne Minna Filvinsky, but not how they were related. Elsa has
passed away.

Asne Minna was born in Adutiskis, Svencionys, Vilnius Lithuania in
July 1844. (Adutiskis was Hoduciszki, Poland during the interwar period).
Her father was Shmuel Zev and mother Esther. Asne had a brother Muska
Getsel. Asne Minna may have run a brewery in Lithuania.

Asne Minna emigrated to New York City, arriving on Mar 7, 1893
on the Rugia >from Hamburg with daughter Rochel(Rose)b. abt 1873,
son Mikhel b.abt 1877, daughter Hanna b.abt 1886, and daughter
Brune(Bertha)b. abt 1870. Her husband Moses GITTES emigrated before
them. Because Moses and Asne Minna's daughter Blume did not emigrate,
they lived with and took care of grandchildren Sam and Annie Radin in
New York City. Moses died April 28, 1918 at their home at 17 E 119th St,
New York City, death certificate #14499 and is buried next to Asne Minna.

Asne died February 14, 1927 in West New York, Hudson, New Jersey, USA.
She is buried in Washington Cemetery, McDonald Ave, Brooklyn, Kings, New
York, USA, B'nai Aaron Anshe Wilkomir, 1 Post 40 Row 3 #18.

Thank you very much for your suggestions.

Best Regards,
Susan Goldsmith

ViewMate translation request - Polish #poland

Alex Girshovich
 

Dear Group,

I am seeking for help in translating the heading of the 1795 census
page of Turets, Novogrudok County, Belarus. Apparently it was a
Lithuanian province at that time.
The census was conducted in the year of the Russian annexation of this
area >from Poland (aka the 3rd division of Poland), and it was done in
Polish.
I hope that this translation will help me to understand better the
context of this place.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake
 

Rosh Hashanah and the Days of Awe are nearly upon us. What better way
to get into the feeling of this time of year is a chapter in the
Vasilishki section of the Yizkor book of Shchuchin, Lida District,
Vilna and Grodno Gubernii, now Belarus, titled "About the Old Home"

The approach of a holiday was felt in the air, especially when it was
Rosh Hashanah,wrote Yosef Ben-Abraham. He goes on to describe the
town's devout observation of Yom Kippur and the awe and fear for the
Day of Judgment. On Rosh Hashanah, the stores closed early, the men
with their wet beards could be seen returning >from the mikveh and
dressed to the hilt, people hurried to synagogue. And, as Yom Kippur
approached, people prepared Yom Kippur Drops(ammonia) with which
to revive a faint Jew or simply wake up a sleepy one by holding it to
their nose and quickly run away so that they would not know who did it.
When the High Holidays were over, it was as though a stone had fallen
off one's heart. Everyone believed that the compassionate and Merciful
One had listened to their prayers and will probably inscribe them for
a good year.

Help identifying portrait with Hebrew inscription #general

Cory Streisinger
 

I'm trying to identify the subject of a portrait I've posted on ViewMate at

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM75192

The portrait comes >from an online genealogy site where the subject is
identified as R. Aryeh Leib ben Saul Lowenstam (1690-1755), ABD
Amsterdam. (He is my eighth-great-grandfather.) I'd like to confirm
whether this identification is correct. Based on the inscription and
the book in the portrait, it's also been suggested that this is
actually R. Aryeh Leib's son R. Saul Lowenstam (1717-1790), also ABD
Amsterdam. I've posted a closer view of the inscription at

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM75193

I would appreciate any views on whether this is R. Aryeh Leib, R.
Saul, or someone else, as well as any further translation of the
inscription (sorry about the poor quality), and if anyone knows the
source of this portrait, please let me know.

Thanks very much (and thanks to those who have weighed in already).
Please respond via ViewMate or privately by email.
