It looks like only the necrology on pages 153-156 is currently transcribed. More donations would have to be solicited to get more of the book translated.

English Translation of Bivolari Yizkor Book?  The Jewish Gen website indicates that there is a Yizkor book for Bivolari, Romania, entitled 

Ayaratenu Bivolari, or Our Town Bivolari.  It seems to indicated that it has been translated into English.  How do I access the English translation on Jewish Gen?  When I clicked on the link for the book, it did not bring up a copy of the book in English.  That you.  # Romania #Yizkor Books

Was this Mendes related to Rev. Pereira Mendes of the Birmingham, England Synagogue.  His name shows up in the following publication listed on JewishGEN UK:Provincial Jewry in Victorian Britain

from Grodno, Poland/Belarus to Palestine and back #israel #poland #holocaust

I am searching for data on a great uncle who immigrated to Palestine in the 30s, bought land in Palestine, but returned to Grodno after his father died in 1937.
Needless to say, he was murdered during the Holocaust with many other family members in Grodno. Where would I/could I find information about his relocations, residences, etc Thank you


Re: Given name naming patterns in Latvia, 1800s-1900s #latvia

erikagottfried53@...
 

That's an interesting and thoughtful conjecture, Nancy.  Also the thought about a connection with Prussian Jews is a good one.

Part of my family came from Courland, which was part of Latvia at the time (late 19th/early 20th century). I think I'm right in remembering that my grandmother said that this branch of the family was from Prussia.  Since then I've read that quite a few Courland Jews (as well as Latvian Jews more broadly), immigrated there from East Prussia.  I do know that that branch of the family identified with German culture, and belonged to a Courland-associated synagogue in the U.S. (in St. Louis) in which services were held in German.

Jewish farm school “Eydelman,” founde 1900 in Minsk.
I believe my Grandfather, David Pyenson (Paenson in cyrillic or Paiensohn in yiddish) graduated from this school in Minsk in1904 prior to his arrival in the U.S. in 1905. Where might I find more information, class lists, etc?

Re: Descendants of Dutch Jews. Any interest? #general

alina.gildiner@...
 

I also had ancestors, on my father's side, who fled Spain or Portugal for the Netherlands.  Regrettably, however, their next move was to Poland. 

I'd be very interested to learn more about the history of Dutch Jews.

Re: Logistics of emigration from Pale of Settlement to America #lithuania #poland

     My grandmother, three of her sisters, and their parents walked from Odessa (now Ukraine) to Rotterdam (family name at the time FAVILYUKIS) around 1920 - a little passed the time you mentioned but probably very similar. They had false papers saying they were from Tiraspol (where my great-grandmother was from - maiden name DIKERMAN), which was in either Bessarabia or Romania at the time and not part of Russia (not quite the USSR yet and not part of Russia at the time, but there was a lot of infighting in Ukraine, at the time, and there were allied troops that had entered into Odessa to try and fight the Bolsheviks on behalf of the Tsar, and Poland was threatening from the west). The papers were very expensive. To the best of my knowledge, they avoided countries that were known to be hostile to Jews and probably took a southern route. It took them about a year. It's my understanding that they had help from HIAS and they sewed up all their money and their silver in their clothes so no one would see it and steal it. I don't know all the details, but I do know my great-grandfather was arrested for murder along the way and was released based solely on the testimony of my grandmother (who was 8 at the time). When they got to Rotterdam, my grandmother and her sisters got sick and ended up in the hospital. 
      I believe my great-grandfather knew English - or enough to get by. He had visited the US once before. They were processed through Ellis Island and my grandfather's brother has been in the US for a while so I think he's the one that came to greet them and helped them get set up in NY. The agent who spoke Russian to them to find out if they could read and write, etc, didn't speak to my grandmother who was small for her age. He thought she was about 6. She got very indignant and told her father, "Tell him I'm not a baby and I've been to school and I know how to read."

Shura is a common form of Alexander in Russian, and u merges into i in most of Eastern Yiddish. No connection to the modern name Shira = song, just a coincidence.

Re: Fairy Tales my Father Told Me #belarus

Jeanette Hurwitz
 

Husbands grandfather told a tale of not wanting to go into the army in Poland so he ate a whole bunch of bananas and it distended his stomach so much he looked deformed and they wouldn't take him. I wonder how a poor jew got a bunch of bananas in the early1900's.

Another tale of the same grandfather, Soloman Rofer, is that he stowed away on a ship to come to America. When he didn't have documents at Ellis Island they were going to send him back but he begged them not to. So they said he could stay in the US and would have to go to Canada or Mexico. He asked what the weather was like and chose Mexico.

What we know for sure was his family was murdered by the Nazis and he wouldn't talk about them.
