Calendrical assistance #general

A S Goldberg
 

I would appreciate assistance in converting Lithuanian records dates in the years
1903 and 1906 into their equivalent of the modern calendar. I believe the Julian
was still in use in the Russian Empire in those years. Are there any simple
conversions charts or formulae available online?

Please respond to me direct at alancomm@...

Many thanks

seeking information about the ITROF and SECUNDA families of Dvinsk #latvia

Alicen Eatroff <a.eatroff@...>
 

I have been having a great deal of difficulty tracing my paternal
grandfather's family and I was hoping someone on this listserv may
have some additional information or a direction to point me in.

My great-grandparents, Nachum EATROFF and Dina SECUNDA, emigrated from
Daugavpils (Dvinsk), Latvia sometime around 1895 with their children
Fannie (13), Michael (11) and Philip (9). I was told they came through
Castle Garden rather than Ellis Island, but I have been unable to find
any immigration records >from either source.

They are listed as Nochim and Dina ITROF on the 1886 family list, but
this is the only confirmation of their existence prior to immigration
I've been able to locate. All other records for anyone surnamed ITROF
pertain to people in Liepaja or Riga and I have no idea how (or even
if) they are related.

Their oldest surviving descendants are two grandsons, both in their
late 70s and both born long after Nachum and Dina passed away. They
have no additional information about the family prior to immigration
other than a faint family legend that someone's aunts were involved in
a failed anarchist revolution of 1895.

It's a long shot, but if these names ring any bells with anyone,
please contact me.

Dear Thierry,

You wrote:

In his book "Une histoire de familles - les noms de famille Juifs
d'Afrique du Nord", Joseph Toledano mentions a R. Yaacob BESSIS, rabbi
born in Tunis who decided at the end of his life to make Aliya, and
settled in Tiberiade where he died in 1910.
Would anyone know
(a) what Toledano's source for this is?
and/or
(b) where to find a death record for R. Yaakov BESSIS in Tiberiade in 1910?
--->
Basing myself on my own experience of asking Joseph Toledano about the
sources he used for the numerous individuals he wrote in his book, his
answer was always the same :"I do nt remind".I guess it is the same
for Rab. Bessis.

As to the burial society of Tiberias, only a request written in Hebrew
will be taken in account.I am ready to translate such a request. Send
me the xact text. I'll tforward it to Tiberias.
