JewishGen 2012 Review #belarus

Groll, Avraham
 

Dear Friends,

1 million records. More than 41,000 new users. Nearly 8,000 donors.

These figures demonstrate tremendous accomplishment by JewishGen in
2012. As we wrote a few months ago, we are actively growing our
databases to meet the demand of our constantly expanding user base.
Second, our users continue to appreciate the free service provided
by JewishGen, and are willing to financially support its mission.

There is still so much more to do.

We added more than 1 million records last year (surpassing 21
million records in total!), hundreds of Yizkor Book translations and
many other important items of interest to Jewish genealogists - but
there remain millions of records throughout the world that have yet
to be digitized, indexed, and made searchable on JewishGen. Some
for-profit companies seek to obtain these records, and then charge
to access them. It is our belief that Jewish family research should
be freely accessible, and we are doing everything we can to keep it
that way.

With this in mind, we are proud to publish our "2012 Review,"
highlighting JewishGen's accomplishments over the course of the
previous year. As you may have noticed, many of our most popular
features (such as the Family Finder and Burial Registry) now have
distinctively branded logos, making it easier to identify the
information you are viewing. A project that has generated
particular enthusiasm is our "Memorial Plaques" project, whereby
volunteers throughout the world are indexing the names appearing on
Memorial (Yizkor) plaques in their synagogues.

As always, major and significant improvements (with the rapid
advance of technology, these improvements are always significant)
have continued to be made "behind the scenes" to help ensure an
easy, powerful, and secure web experience.

This past July, JewishGen's ViewMate project won the "Outstanding
Program or Project Award" at the IAJGS conference in Paris. We'd
like to congratulate the team of JewishGen volunteers who created
and maintain ViewMate: Sam Eneman, Administrator; Gary Sandler,
Programmer; and Bernard Kouchel, who envisioned the original
concept.

Finally, and most importantly, our loyal users continued to
provide us with a strong base of financial support - we received
nearly 8,000 donations last year - allowing us to operate within
our budget for the third year in a row despite global economic
uncertainty.

Running more than 40 pages, the 2012 Review covers these, and
other topics as well. Last year's report was viewed more than
20,000 times, and we are confident that this year's report will
reach an even wider audience.

The 2012 Review can be accessed here:
http://issuu.com/jewishgen/docs/jg_annual_0221?mode=window

Regardless of your level of financial support, we are glad that
you are part of the global JewishGen community - the JewishGen
family - and we hope you will enjoy reading about our
accomplishments in 2012, along with our plans for what we hope
will be an even better 2013.

Searching: KIVELEVICH in Lubtch (Lubca, Lyubcha) Belarus #belarus

Ariel Luckey <skylight@...>
 

Hello,

I am researching the family of my great-great-grandfather, Himann
KIVELEVICH, >from Lubtch, Belarus. Lubtch is a small village outside of
Navahrudak, not far >from Minsk. Himann was born in 1869 and immigrated
to the U.S. in 1890. His parents were Shifra and Kalman KIVELEVICH. I
would love to share information and resources with anyone who has them
about Lubtch or KIVELEVICH family.

I am also preparing for a trip to Belarus to visit Minsk and Lubtch
this April and would love any tips, resources and connections. Thanks!

Re: INTRO - Researching LEMBERG family from town of Zduny, Prussia #germany

Roger Lustig
 

Dear Penny, Welcome!

I hope you'll find time to attend a meeting--or several--of the Jewish
Genealogical Society of Long Island. You'll learn a lot--guaranteed.
[Moderator note: Email: Info@jgsli.org Next meeting in Plainview
March 17th 1:30 p.m.- Speaker Peter Lande of USHMM in Washington]

Records >from the former Posen Province are fragmentary--sometimes rich,
sometimes completely lost. You may be in luck--the marriage records
from 1818-46 and the death records >from 1835-47 have survived, and films
of those records are available through the Family History Library.

LEMBERG is an interesting name, because it seems to point to a city well
to the east, now known as Lviv in Ukraine. It had a large Jewish
community--44,000 in 1900--and that's not counting the many who came
from near there. 44,000--more than half the Jewish population of the
entire province of Posen at its peak.

Zduny is now known as--would you believe it?--Zduny. It's near the
larger city (and, back in the day, much larger Jewish community) of
Krotoszyn (Krotoschin in German). It was right on the border between
Posen Province and Silesia.

In 1833 the Prussian government made citizenship available to the Jews
of Posen. Those applying had to show that they were sufficiently
wealthy or industrious or patriotic (i.e., had fought in the War of
Liberation against Napoleon). About 20-25% of Posen's Jewish heads of
household became citizens in the next year or two--i.e., until a list of
them was published. The published list mentions Moritz LEMBERG of
Rawicz and Kaskel LEMBERGER of Zduny. The former was a merchant, the
latter, a horsetrader.

Heppner and Herzbergs' book on the history of the Jewish communities of
Posen reports that Karl LEMBERG of Zduny served in the Austro-Prussian
(1866) and Franco-Prussian (1870-1) wars.

Good luck in your searches, and let us know what you find!

Just a guess, but it might be referring to the Gubernya or Province of Minsk.

BARNETT to COHEN or COHEN & BARNETT from Poland #poland

yvonne baines
 

I am looking for information on my ggrandfather Joseph Israel COHEN born
abt. 1846 in Lomza. D.13th Feb 1912 in Liverpool. Also my ggrandmother
Miriam/Mary BARNETT, b. abt 1843 in possibly Warsaw. D. 23 May 1915 in
Liverpool. The name on her death certificate is Miriam COHEN. The mystery
becomes more interesting when on the 1871 census for England there is
Miriam BARNETT living in Liverpool with Eliza BARNETT born in London abt.
1867 and Morris BARNETT born in Liverpool abt. 1869. There is no Joseph
or husband shown.

The 1881 census has Miriam as Mary and she is COHEN, with Joseph as her
husband. The children are Eliza, Morris, David, Esther, Marks & Rachel
(not Richard). The 1891 Census has 2 children added they are Rebecca my
(grandmother) and Leah. The 1911 census has Joseph and Mary to have been
married 45 years.

Eliza married Moses Abraham FRIEDMAN a Tailor >from Bradford, Yorkshire
Morris married Betsy GREENLEAF
David ?
Esther married Macwill ROSENBERG a Tailor >from Birmingham
Marks married Maud De FRECE
Rachel married Wolf LEFF they settled in California
Rebecca married Reuben MYERS and stayed in Liverpool
Leah married Gilbert Henry McCLELLAND, moved to London and then divorced.

If this information rings a bell with anyone or if you can shed any light
onto my BARNETT TO COHEN dilemma I look forward to hearing >from you

Thank you in anticipation
