Jewishgen has extracted the parents names and date, but I would appreciate any other info included in the record.

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.

Thank you very much.

Kolomyya is the current name of this now Ukrainian town. I happen to have a lot of relatives from there. 


Re: Tracking a passenger across the Atlantic through England ISRAEL LEVENTHAL -- clarification needed

Barbara Zimmer
 

Which is correct? Did Israel Leventhal arrive after World War Two (about 1945) or after World War One (about 1919-1920)?
Did he really die in Palestine in 1930, or is that date incorrect?

I have been searching records for years for my great grandfather. He came to the USA to visit his family before emigrating to Palestine to die. He supposedly arrived in New York at the end of WWII, stayed to visit them and then left for Palestine. If anyone can find him on any manifests I I would be greatly appreciative.

His name was Israel Leventhal and he was born in 1849 in Russia, possibly the Moldova region. According to a genealogist I hired in Israel, he died in Palestine in 1930.

Vladimir,
Your ggfather would have had to undertake a step to register with another society to no longer be considered a Slonim meschanin.  This was not mandatory.  My ggfather was also born in Slonim, while being registered with Ozernitsa society (20 km west of Slonim).  He lived most of his life in Odessa and his marriage/children births in Odessa list him as being an Ozernitsa meschanin.

Regards,
Mike

Most of the "Russian" Jews are from Pale. 
My great-grandfather Isaac Zeliviansky originally is from Slonim, Belarus. Slonim was inside Pale. He got permit to live outside Pale, in Stavropol, Russia. He got it because his profession - tailor, his specialization was hats. He just have found his profession is in demand there, in Stavropol. He moved from Pale at 1876. Interestingly he still listed in all records as "Slonim meshanin".


Re: Alex Krakovsky Ukraine postings - Alphabetical Listing of Surnames #ukraine

mvayser@...
 

Beware that some of these name lists are far from being complete.
There are more comprehensive lists that exist for towns of Radomysl uezd: census of 1815-1816, 1834, 1834 supplemental, 1850, 1850 supplemental (last name, social class, page number, index number), as well as 1808 census of drinking establishment ownership (complete census information). 1818 Supplemental census is in the works.

Currently, a complete list of 1897 census Radomysl uezd is being worked on. It will include town/village, last name, and page number of all towns and villages.  According to Wikipedia, 1897 census numbers Jewish population at 41272.

Radomysl uezd includes the following towns:
Brusilov
Gornostaypol
Ivankov
Korostyshev
Malin
Radomysl
Rozhev
Khabnoe
Chernobyl

1897 Radomysl uezd census also includes rural areas, which are currently not indexed anywhere in public domain.  This information is in progress of being uploaded by Alex and is being transcribed at the same time.

Gary, you wrote that these lists cannot be made available in JG database and can be uploaded to Kehlialink.  Is there one available for Radomysl uezd?

Regards,
Mike


Re: Liski, Kolomea

Ben Kempner
 

Hello Hannah,

Per the JewishGen Town Finder, Liski might have been known as Lishke in Yiddish or Mala Hlusha in modern-day Ukraine.  If this is true, the village is quite a way from Kolomea.

However, as your surname is Sperber and you mention Kolomea, I'm wondering if you recognize the name Schmerl Sperber.   My grandmother, Fanny Sperber (1887 - 1942) and her 4 siblings were born to Schmerl Sperber (and Manci Friedman) in the small village of Gwozdziec (today Hvizdets, Ukraine). Gwozdziec was part of the Kolomea administrative district. I know Sperber is not an uncommon name, but you're in the right vicinity, and I always hold on to hope.

Perhaps (likely) Schmerl had siblings, and you descend from one of them?  Do you know the names of your Sperber ancestors that would have lived in that area and at the same time as Schmerl (1845 - 1917)?

Thanks.

would this same Yiddish speaker have pronounced "Russian-Poland"?
The Yiddish speaker (e.g. my GF from Tomaszow Mazowietsky) pronounced it "Russisch Polen"

Note: The screen on the right in the screenshot is not relevant.

I have "reply" but I am not logged into Jewishgen.
I use Firefox on Windows 10 using
yahoo mail.

In the screenshot, the "reply" is in the second from bottom

If you use a POP client, you may not have the links.

YMMV

It's been mentioned a few times that "Ellis Island wasn't open."  Please remember that Ellis Island opened up in 1892 but before that, Castle Island was open from 1855-1890.  Immigrants were received there too and there are records for Castle Island as well.

Re: Given Names Database

This is in response to the complaints about not being able to access the Given Names Database.

JewishGen’s Database Administrator has found that the problem with the Given Names Database appears to be with the owner of the sub domain where the data resides, and not with JewishGen's servers. He is looking into this and will try to resolve the problem.

When you click on reply there is a "Reply to group & sender" button bottom left and a "private" button bottom right. If you click on "private" then "Reply to group and sender" changes to "Reply to sender" which should enable you to send a private message.

"I need to clarify something about the dates.  My paternal ggf, the one who "bought" the false papers in Russia (I think the Odessa area) arrived in 1884, which was well before the opening of Ellis Island.  He came under the surname Meyer. "

In 1884 nothing was needed to enter the US. What he probably bought was a ticket and perhaps the deceased Meyer's papers, as Russians were required to carry papers in Russia.

A cousin of mine came about the same time, and the family still has the ticket and internal passport. A gril's fiance was in the US, and he sent her a ticket to follow; but the girl died before leaving. My cousin's family bought the ticket (why waste the money), and the cousin left in the girl's place, with her papers. She left Russia and could have thrown the papers out, but all Russians didn't know that. Of course, once in the US, she used her own name.
