Belarus SIG #Belarus Mogilev #belarus

dardasht@...
 

Welcome to all our Belarus "cousins."

As some of you might know, I have been researching Mogilev city, Gorki
(near to Mogilev), Zavarezh'ye and Vorotinschtina (a village and its
closest agricultural colony established 1830 about 18 km south southwest
from Mogilev proper). Lupalov (the southern end of Mogilev city), also
figures in our searches, as well as Chaussy and Bobruisk. On the road
from Bobruisk to Mogilev is also a small bump called Yasin, which also
figures.

Sorry I missed the formation of the SIG in Los Angeles. I was planning to
come but a family emergency kept me away. Thanks to David and others for
taking the initiative.

The names and places I am researching include the following (there are
even more appearing daily!):

TALALAY, TALALAI: Mogilev, Zaverezh'ye, Vorotinshtina, Bobruisk, Minsk,
Baranovichi, Gomel, Moscow, St. Petersburg. In Mogilev >from about 1790 to
present. Also, Novosibirsk, Siberia, as well as Israel and America (new
immigrants). David-goroduk also features in search.

In America: TOLLIN, TALLIN, TOLL, TALL, TAYLOR (New Jersey, Missouri,
Pennsylvania, Boston and Springfield in Massachusetts, Detroit).

MIRLS, MERLIN, MITTLEMAN, BERLIN, JASSEN, YASIN, KONVISER, KONWISER,
BERLIN, KORE, STAROSELSKY, SHULMAN, MURAVCHIK. Mogilev and surrounds.

YASIN/JASSEN >from Chaussy near Mogilev.

BRUSTERMAN: Gomel

VISOTSKY/WISOTZKY: Bobruisk, descendents of Yehuda HaCohen VISOTSKY.

TALALAI - rabbinical, descendents of Rabbi Leib ben Michael TALALAI--my
ggggf. Talmudic scholar and rabbi of Bet Din in Mogilev, as were several
of his sons.

KONVISER: Mogilev mohelim.

BERLIN: Rabbinical family in Mogilev and other Belarus areas.

Good luck to all. Thank you, David Fox.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen BARON HIRSCH Cemetery, Ohab Shalom - names on entrance gate posts #general

Curiousyl@...
 

Joel Rattner was kind enough to visit my great-grandfather's
grave-site, in the Baron Hirsch Cemetery, Staten Island , N.Y.
Joel photographed the site and the entrance gate to the Ohab
Shalom Congregation of Greenville, New Jersey - Orthodox area.
This gracious man also said Kaddish at the grave-site.

I am posting the names inscribed on the two posts bearing the marble arch
flanking the iron gates, hoping someone will see a familiar name
- as I did!

I tried to contact Issie Fine at the email address noted on the posting,
but only got a Mailer Demon in return...In any event this is what I sent
him:
Dear Issie Fine....
Your lucky day....or should I say this is one FINE day for you...
_Gorodeya is very close to _Nesvizh_... _Nesvizh_ was the center of Jewish
life for people in that area. My Family, on both sides, maternally, was
from that area. My GrandMother's family was >from Gorodeya. They all
gravitated to Nesvizh for school, shul and other "stuff". I suggest
that you search the NESVIZH SHTETL Website..........
<http://www1.jewishgen.org/shtetlinks/nesvizh/nesvizh.html>. Especially
the New York Cemetery listings that you'll find on the site. You will
find some FINE's in most of the cemetery listings. You might even
consider joining our little SIG. No cost, no obligation...just
information sharing and some friendly chatter >from time to time.

Ellen,

My mother was very friendly with a Sattler family in Brooklyn, NY. William
Sattler died about 30 years ago. I believe he had a sister who died before
him. I don't know anything about their background. They were definitly
Jewish.

William's window and daughter live in the New York area. If you think they
may be related, I will try to contact them for you.

JRI Poland #Poland Fwd: Problem with Polish Genealogist #poland

Thekla1
 

I found the name of a person who advertises himself as a Polish Genealogist.
Because I knew of no one else to ask, I requested that he research my last
name. Several weeks later he e-mailed me that he had done the research,had
spent over 20 hours, and had information which he would send to me after he received my check for $650.00. Although I thought it was a lot, the
information was so valuable to us that I sent him the check. What I received in return was about what I could find on the Internet. I was very sad about this and felt that in my search to find family who had survived, we had been taken advantage of. Since then I have learned that others have had the same experience with this person -- Pawel B. Dorman.I hope that this message can protect someone else >from making the same expensive mistake.

Sincerely, Thekla Stein Nordwind
