Translation from Russian - Pictures (LEBEDENKO/LEBEDENCO family) #photographs #russia #romania #translation #ukraine

llevangta@...
 

Can anyone translate the banners & subtitles for me? And if you have any idea of what is going on in the pictures please help understand it! All I know is that they have something to do with my family, lebedenko (lebedenco at Brazil) who lived in the USSR, not sure if Ukraine or Romania... if you recognize any of the places please let me know as well! One of the pics has numbers on it, not sure why, but I’m trying to find out... the other has some names, if could translate them as well, it’d be great!!!
Thanks for Everything!

Lailah Lebedenco Evangelista

P.s. Some other surnames I’m looking for are POPOV, SEMENIKIN, BULGACOV, GORSKA, SEMENICHEN, YASTREBOV & CERKASSIN please contact me if you know anything about them! & if you recognize any of the pictures, please do too!!

Did any of the Nathans emigrate to Montreal, Canada? I am not related but have an interest in the Nathan family -- specifically Moses Nathan who died in Montreal in 1804 leaving his widow Elizabeth nee Lyons (d. c. 1825) and four children, Elizabeth Catherine, Amelia, Sophia and Isaac.

Hello Martyn:
Thank you for the quick response. I have been trying for this (and more) info for years! 
My apologies but because I'm not a Jew myself, my understanding of some of the info is misleading. I thought what followed, "Ben and Bat" referred to the male's and the female's unmarried names?
Respectfully, Ron A. Nathan


Possible Americanized Given Names #belarus #names

There's a record in the Revision List for 1874 which I'm trying to determine if it refers to my ancestors. So, what do you think about these names?
In Belarus, they were:
Gdalia or Gdal,
Hinda or Ginda.

In New York in 1935, they might have been translated as what?


Re: synagogue memorial plaques #JewishGenUpdates

The idea of having all genealogists go to their own synagogues to copy the information on all memorial plaques is a great idea for several reasons:
 
1.    The data can be put on similar spreadsheets such as was done for cemeteries.  I would suggest that JewishGen develop a master form to post on JewishGen, and find a volunteer to coordinate this (like Nolan Altman).
 
2.    Doing it from inside our synagogues is easier for most of us than going to cemeteries in other states and other countries.

My brain was on JOWBR cemeteries regarding complete sections. Not such issue with the plaques. I work on both and the 59 JOWBR cemeteries I am creating the HTML for were still on my mind. Both go to Nolan

A few years ago I had my students copy down the information on all of the synagogue's memorial plaques.  I had been to a conference and learned about an ongoing effort to record these names somewhere in case of synagogue closure, merger, etc.  To whom do I submit this information?

It's Your America: The 1940 Census Today Zoom and You Tube #announcements

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

Eighty years ago, the census of 1940—the 16th in the nation’s history—was carried out beginning in April. The 1940 census forms a critical link to our shared past and provides a window into an American world only one year away from being engulfed by war. It would also hold both immediate and long-lasting ramifications for the country and its citizens, some of which have only recently begun to come to light. 

 

11AM CT today  https://zoom.us/j/99592530846\

 

If you’re unable to join live today, recordings of all their lectures are uploaded to YouTube after initial broadcast   https://www.youtube.com/wwiimuseum

 

Thank you to Randy Fishbein for informing us about this.

Re: Seeking genealogical resources for Milicz (Militsch) SW Poland #poland

sfalkjd@...
 

You can also consider materials in the archive of the Centrum Judaicum in Berlin.  It contains a large part of the materials collected by the Gesamtarchiv dear Deutschen Juden zu Berlin.  The catalogue of this archive is in the form of a 2-volume book: Quellen zur Geschichte der Juden in den Archiven der neuen Bundesländer: Stiftung "Neue Synagoge Berlin Centrum Judaicum"

(I think I have checked the excellent index for Militsch records, but I do not recall how extensive the materials are for this town.)

Re: "Mother" (But Not "Husband") On a Married Woman's Grave #general

laurie.budgar@...
 

I have a similar quandary. I have a husband & wife who were second cousins, and are buried side-by-side. Her stone says "beloved sister" and his stone doesn't have any familial notes -- just his name and date of death, along with the usual Hebrew inscriptions. In this case, he died before she did, so I always assumed whoever buried her was a sibling. I also wondered, though, if maybe the family disapproved of their union (or the fact that he was something of a ne'er-do-well) and that's also why it didn't say "beloved wife." Would the cemetery still have records on who paid for their burials? Does the fact that they're both buried in the Hebrew Free Burial Cemetery change things? (I always thought that was for the indigent -- so if there was a sibling to pay for the burial why was she put there? Simply because her husband was?)

Hello. I sent a message before but i am not sure if you received it. I live in vienna since 1983 and have suceeded in writing a biography on my folks going back to 1680 when jews were not allowed to have full names in the Czech lands. Pls write a lail to DSA Irma Wulz or call her +43/1/531 04-172 fax +43/1/531 04-219 or I.wulz@... this lady is in charge of the Jewish Matrikeln of the Jewish community of Vienna. Baden is included. You need the birth date and death date of Margit Friedmann I believe. She can locate thru the Matrikeln where they were registered when they lived in Baden bei Wien. After that I can help you with the Handelsregisters of the Austrian State Archives to locate the restaurant with some luck. Kind regards sis Wien

....... very often the data collected by commercial genealogical companies is useless. Therefore, I have not bothered to be a member of any of these companies. My experience regarding my own collection of genealogical data (based mostly on official documents) is rather irritating. My data has been leaked to two such companies without my permission, and one of them is keeping sending me (via a family member) "new matchings" or "supplements" which most of the time can be characterized as rubbish. I would advise anybody interested in collecting reliable genealogical data to treat with the utmost suspicion anything these commercial companies are responsible for.

Prof. Isak Gath MD, DIC, DSc

I could not have said it better. Like Prof. Gath, i've found it a huge waste of time to look in those commercial databases. To pay them money as a subscriber is adding insult to injury. Reminds me of the old database saying 'garbage in, garbage out', and then paying for the garbage. Like Gath some outdated versions of my own family data has somehow—to my great dismay— ended up in them.

Hello Moses,
I recently did a biography of a friend whose maiden surname is Militscher. She lived in that area, mainly Breslau, until in 1938 the family escaped from Breslau and made it to British Mandate Palestine. I never found documentation of exact roots of their family before Ostrowo, although I would assume they have some connection with the town from whom they drew their surname. I have further info. on Ostrowo. I would also suggest YIVO in NY. When they escaped, they left behind a grandmother and other relatives. I do not know where they are buried and if cemetery records for them have been found, but I could ask the family.Let me know if any of this has interest for you. Perhaps one other lead would be  Theresienstadt Martyrs Remembrance Association in Givat Chaim, Israel.


Re: passenger manifest missing/not indexed/ Australia #general

My greatgrandfather wrote on his application for naturalisation in Australia that he arrived on15th March 1888 on the ship Talavera. This did not seem to be correct. After much searching for dates when the Talavera arrived in Australia in the Australian historical newspapers Shipping News columns (a great source of information via the website of TROVE), I managed to deduce that he actually arrived on the 12th March 1889. But the ship left England on the 27th December 1888 and this is obviously why the mistake was made.
