Where is Pankewicz, Russian Poland? #general

Judith Elam
 

I am assisting someone with her genealogy.
Her ancestor was Max KRUPNICK.
According to his WWII draft registration record, Max was known as
Michael KRUPNICK, and born 2 November 1888 in Pankewicz, Russia,
which I believe is in the Volhynia district and now in Ukraine.
I cannot find the exact location or correct spelling for Pankewicz.
Can anyone please help identify Pankewicz?
Max died January 3, 1958 in Lakewood, NJ and is buried
at the Woodbine Brotherhood Cemetery, Cape May, NJ.

Also, if you believe you are related to Max/Michael KRUPNICK,
please can you contact me. Thank you!

Sincerely,

Viemate help translating Yiddish letters #general

Fred Zimmak <Fred.Zimmak@...>
 

Dear Genners,

To ViewMate I uploaded some two letters, which seems to be in Yiddish. One of
them was translated by a genner:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM32331
It seems the end is not there.

But it could maybe continue here:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM32327

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM32329
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM32330

I would be very grateful for translation of those four pages.

Please respond privately: Fred.Zimmak@...

Animation software that can show individual migration #general

Todd Edelman <edelman@...>
 

Hi,

Does anyone know of animation software which makes it possible to
(simply) show on a map how individual (families of) ancestors have
migrated through the years?

Or is this available on one of the existing family tree-related generators?

It seems it would be relatively simple to do with a variety of graphics
software but I am curious if there is already something dedicated to
this task.

Thanks!

looking for death date - Nancy LEIST #general

Renee Steinig
 

I am searching for the death date and burial place of Dr. Nancy LEIST.
Here's what I know about her:

- born 4 July 1946 in Manhattan
- parents Morris Leist (1909 Glinyany - 2002) and Matilda nee Klein
(1912 - 1986)
- brother Lawrence Leist (1941 - 1977)
- grew up on Wadsworth Avenue in northern Manhattan
- attended the Bronx High School of Science, possibly New York University,
and Downstate Medical School
- was a psychiatrist, probably in Brooklyn
- probably didn't marry
- died between 1970 and 2003

Nancy is not listed in the Social Security Death Index and I did not
find her burial (or her parents' or brother's) on JOWBR,
FindaGrave.com, BillionGraves.com, or Interment.net; in any of the NYC
area Jewish cemetery databases
(www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/erc-scdb.htm); or on JewishData. No
death notices appeared in the New York Times. Nancy is listed as a
"lost" alum on her medical school's website.

I've been in touch with Genners researching Leist >from Glinyany or
connected to Nancy in other ways, but they had no information about
her.

Before I search for a death certificate or spend hours calling
cemeteries, I'm hoping that Nancy may be on someone's family tree.

Any help would be appreciated.

Molaff #general

ab.cohen@...
 

Dear All

I have asked this once before but never solved the problem but as
there seems a renewed interest in finding Mohilev I'll ask again.

Family says my g'father came >from Vitepsk; on his naturalization
papers and UK passport it states he came >from Molaff, Vitepsk, Russia.

I have assumed Molaff is Mohilev but have never found one associated
with Vitepsk.

Has anyone any ideas please?

Alan Cohen, researching KUNYIN ?>from Vitepsk.


Re: Yahrzeit reminder in genealogical websites #general

Schelly Talalay Dardashti <schelly@...>
 

Todd Edelman asks if other online genealogy websites (other than
Geni.com) have "birthday reminders."

Yes. MyHeritage.com (which owns Geni.com) provides the ability to
send various reminders to tree members.
