"My grandparents (Weinstein-Malsman) came >from a small town in Russia (what is now
Ukraine). The Russian name of the town is Krevye Ozero. The name I grew up
knowing was Krevozer. Is there anyone out there who has some relatives that came
from that town? If there is a list someplace, I would appreciate knowing about
it so I can possibly trace some relatives. Is there a burial society list
available? Any information will be much appreciated."

Joyce: Indeed there is a list, and a JewishGen community page for Krevye Ozero,
then in Podalia, now in the Ukraine, Go here:
and follow all the links on the page; see the map, the history and governments of
the town, the towns around it that had a significant Jewish presence, the databases
that have information about this ancestral town; especially do click on the Family
Finder link on the upper right corner and see the 76 surnames posted by your fellow
JewishGenners. Email those seeking similar surnames/towns and then add your own
surname and town to our JGFF.

Really, JewishGen has the information you are seeking!

As a follow up to Joyce Weiss's email of 25 July about her grandparents town of
Krevye Ozero - Krevozer - now in the Ukraine -and her questions about whether there
are lists, so that she can trace relatives, I can add that YIVO Institute for
Jewish Research at the Center for Jewish History in New York has landsmanschaft
records: Krivozer Fraternal Society of Greater New York, 1927-1961, which include
minutes, 1933-1947, an anniversary journal and other records.(There were affiliated
societies in other cities, including Philadelphia.) While I have not reviewed these
records, Additionally, Krivozer Fraternal Society has a plot in (Old) Montefiore
Cemetery in Spring Gardens, Queens and the cemetery has an online database. I have
visited this plot for a client who has family buried there. We were able to
determine that his paternal grandfather and his extended family came >from Kryve
Ozero through ship manifests, which gave it as their place of birth and/or last
permanent residence.
