Hallo all,
Found this query on my Yorkshire list.
Can you help.

Has anyone come across either this person or his family name (I have
only heard the name phonetically >from my grandparents, so it may not be
spelled correctly). Family legend says he was Jewish, came >from Eastern
Europe, probably in the early 1800s and subsequently became a Lord,
possibly dying in the USA. His daughter, Elizabeth married Thomas
RAWSON, a joiner, and had a child, Annie Elizabeth RAWSON in Hull in
1849.

TIA
Regards >from Jane Lachs in Munich Jane@...

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Rabbi Menachem Mendel GLUSKIN #general

Dianne W. Feldman <103531.1002@...>
 

Three weeks ago I searched the web on behalf of a friend for information on
Rabbi Menachem Mendel GLUSKIN of Minsk and Slutsk. Within a few minutes up
popped several pages of text about Rabbi GLUSKIN. My notes indicate that I
found the information on the Simon Wiesenthal Center web page, but this
seems to be wrong. I would like to show the text again to my friend but
can't find it no matter how hard I try. Is it possible it was available 3
weeks ago and not available now? I'd be grateful for some guidance.

My daughter is adopted. Notice, MY DAUGHTER! She is in my family.
She is in my family tree. Information about her biological heritage,
to the extent that we have it, is included, in medical records, notes
scrapbook, etc.etc. How could I NOT include her!

The number of the cousin is one less than the generation difference
1st cousins share the same grandparents - 2 generations
2nd cousins share the same great grandparents - 3 generations
3rd cousins share the same great great grandparents - 4 generations.

I also figure it's 1 more than the 'greats', so if someone and I share the
same great great
great great great grandparents, that's 5 greats, which makes them my 6th
cousin.

There is obviously a little error. To make your rule and your examples
fitting the number should be two more than the "greats" - or one more than
the "greats and grands".

People keep writing to me to request the Minsk Archives' address and I have
temporarily misplaced it and don't recall where I got it. I want very much to
help, so I asked Howard Margol if he sent it to me or had it and he did not,
but he offered this helpful information for everyone with family history in
Belarus.

By the way, I am amazed by the generosity and kindness of my fellow Belarus
SIG and Jewishgen and Litvak SIG members who have responded to my request for
translation help and in quest of the elusive Litvak cousin Velvel (m. Olga)
GUREVICH of Herzoleah, whom I haven't found. THANK YOU ALL!

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Here is the Minsk Archives' address #general

KKirshner@...
 

I searched my files and found the address in my BERMAN folder instead of in
my Places to Research folder. So here it is, finally:

Director of Archival Resarch
Historical Archives of Belarus
Kozlova Street 26
Minsk, Belarus

Note, I sent an air mail letter on Devember 18, so it took one month to
receive a response, which may just ask for money before a search starts.
It's in Russian, as mentioned and is being translated as a mitvah as I
write.

Rearching: >from Disna District, Vilna Giberna in Belarus: CHIDEKEL (aka
HIDEKEL/KHIDEKEL and GIDEGAL), LEVIN-LEVINE (originally LURIA), SINGER,
GUREVICH related to one of those lines, MIRKIN related by marriage to a
CHIDEKEL; BERMAN, MUNIC (aka MOONIK). Towns: Sharkovshschina and
Shkuntsiki, both near Glebokie, (55 degrees22'/27 degrees28' and 55 degrees
22'/27 degrees 41' respectively).
