19th century maiming to avoid conscription into Russian army #general

jb@...
 

Dear Jewish Gen members,

I'm an author and working on a book idea centred around the idea of a "wounder" - a
Russian Jew in mid-1800s whose job it is to maim children to avoid their
conscription into the Czar's army.

If you have any genealogical information/family history related to this activity (a
maimed relative, or one who maimed) and would be will to share it (in whatever
form), I'd be immensely appreciative.

Best,

The deaths in Strassnitz were a result of a Cholera epidemic. In the
death register, it says Brechruhr, which is another name for Cholera

Hi Bessarabers,

There are two towns with the name Briceni in Republic of Moldova right now.

A large one which used to be in Khotin uezd, and now in Moldova an
administrative center of Briceni rayon. The small one which is now in
Dondushany rayon, and before it was probably part of Soroki uezd.

Go on Google Map and put
Briceni, Moldova for the large one and
Briceni, Donduseni, Moldova for the small one.

There are 86 km between these towns.

All the best,

Rabbi Yisrael Horowitz of Prague #general

"According to very trustful source "Ktovot Mibeit Haalmin Hayehudi Haatik Beprag"
(Epitaphs >from The Ancient Jewish Cemetery of Prague) by Otto Muneles, Jerusalem
1988, the wife of R. Israel a son of R. Aharon Meshulam Horowitz was Nisel (Nysl)
aka Urshila (Vorshila), and his Father-in-Law name was Aharon of TheTeomim family."

Muneles erred in using the Hebrew Khotno (father-in-law) rather than Khatno
(son-in-law) for Aharon Moshe Teomin who was married to Yisrael Horowitz's
daughter Rivka.

I have reviewed many sources to identify Ursula/Nisel.

While she appears in reliable sources, none identify her father as Moshe Halevy
Ashkenazy Stern. The many managers of this profile on Geni have not provided a
source other than each other.

I am of the opinion that there was not connection between Rabbi Yisrael Horowitz's
wife Ursula/Nisel and the illustrious ancestry erroneously ascribed to her by many
people on Geni. Even many of the links betwen these supposed ancestors are
incorrect.

As stated by other, Geni users beware.

For genealogical purpose, you can obtain some informations at the city hall of the
place of death.

Could Karl be Wolf ROSENSTOCK? #general

ssroth@...
 

Hi all,
I have found a Page of Testimony for a Wolf ROSENSTOCK >from Korolowka,
Poland/Ukraine who I am wondering if could be my ancestor Karl ROSENSTOCK. The town,
date of birth (1865) and the father's name (Israel) fit. The page was submitted
in 1957 so not sure I can find the submitter. If you have any Wolf or Karl
ROSENSTOCKs >from Korolowka in the family born around 1865, or if you have any Karl's
in the family who sometimes were known as Wolf, I'd be interested to know. My Karl
also went by Rachmiel.

Where is Poldarskij? #general

Deborah Long <debbietheteacher@...>
 

Dear Colleagues,

In a search of the Index of Soviet Repression, I came across this reference:

Province/Oblast: Wologodzka
District/Region: Wielikoustiugski
Place where repression occurred: Poldarskij

I've tried using Jewishgen's Townfinder --to no avail. In a Google search, it
appeared that the province is now called "Vologda."

I would appreciate any help in identifying this location and any resources about
the town's history during WWII.

Thank you.
