Introduction

This is an indexed concordance to Jewish personal names and town names recorded in the vital records, revision lists, yizkor books, and other documents from and dealing with Kremenets, Ukraine, and surrounding shtetlach of the Kremenets District. All sources are described in detail later in this document. Personal names include given names and patronymics as well as other indicators of relationships. For women, wherever possible, we have included both her birth surname (her father’s surname) and her married surname (her husband’s surname).

In addition, we have compiled a list of town names and the number of times each appears in our documents. We have standardized on the modern spelling used by JewishGen’s Ukraine Special Interest Group (the pre-World-War-I spelling) as specified in JewishGen’s Town Finder (the JewishGen Gazetteer and JewishGen Communities Database). However, we also include the spelling that appears in the records. When the alternate spelling is significantly different from the standardized name, we use “see” references to point you to the standard name. Here are some statistics on the towns mentioned in the current list:

The lists are not complete because document acquisition and translation activities still are underway. Complete data for the vital records and revision list translations are posted on JRI-Poland after the transliterated data are proofread and edited. Yizkor book translations are posted on JewishGen’s Yizkor Book Translation Project after they are edited. Links to these sites and other Kremenets information are available at the Kremenets KehilaLinks site.

This is a work in progress. The Concordance currently contains 457,493 entries from the following sources:

We have completed translation of all the Kremenets vital records that we received from the LDS and have also translated vital records from the Central Archives for Belozirka, Berezhtsy, Katerburg, Kremenets, Lanovtsy, Oleksinets, Pochayev, Rokhmanov, Shumsk, Vishnevets, and Vyshgorodok, a total of 35,266 records. These include 24,353 births, 3,175 marriages, 141 divorces, and 7,913 deaths. All are included in the Concordance, although not all have been edited and proofread. Edited entries are shown in a boldface font.

An Excel spreadsheet, Kremenets Translation Projects: Document Acquisitions and Status, is linked from the KehilaLinks Research Page. It lists all the items we have acquired and identifies the status of each item.

Transliteration

 

Names from the vital records have been transliterated from the Hebrew/Yiddish ledger pages for this Concordance. However, some of the unedited entries are from the Russian side of the ledger. Names in the Hebrew/Yiddish column that are from the Russian side of the ledger are in italics. In addition, in some vital records the surname of women is the surname of her father, but in others no surname is given. For those married female records lacking a surname, we have input her married surname. This is indicated by an asterisk following the surname. We will update all records during the editing and proofreading process. In the meantime, when you search, be sure to search for variations in the spelling of your surname.

 

We have tried to standardize the transliteration of these surnames to English, but be aware that in some cases our translators applied common usage to the spelling of names. With a few exceptions, our Guidelines are based on the ANSI Z39.25-1975 General Purpose Standard for Hebrew, YIVO’s transliteration schema for Yiddish and on e-mail correspondence with Alexander Beider. To resolve any remaining ambiguity in the Hebrew transliteration, we have used the Russian pronunciation as a guide to the English spelling. Please see the Kremenets Shtetl CO-OP document “Kremenets Hebrew/Yiddish Transliteration Guidelines.” It describes the techniques we used. The Guidelines document is available on the JewishGen’s Ukraine Special Interest Group (Ukraine SIG) website (http://www.jewishgen.org/Ukraine), or on our Kremenets Kehilainks website (http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Kremenets/).

 

Transliterations often cannot be exact. In particular, commonly interchangeable letters include /h/ & /g/, /p/ & /f/, /o/ & /a/, /o/ & /u/, /y/ & /i/, and /i/, /ay/ & /ey/. The Hebrew letter /chet/ does not appear in Yiddish. We have transliterated it as /ch/ to differentiate it from /khaf/, which we have transliterated as /kh/. The reader should be aware that such differences in spelling might occur for any specific name. Consequently, you should be sure to search for spelling variations of surnames.

 

One further note is in order. Surnames often are absent in older documents and in most cemetery inscriptions. Instead, we find only given names, sometimes with a patronymic (given name followed by the father’s given name). So, when looking for names, be sure to search the Index for given names as well as surnames. To help you make sense of the entries that contain only given names, we have added the year that appears in the document.

How to Read Source and Location Information

 

As noted above, data in the Concordance were extracted from several sources: Revision Lists, Vital Records, Yizkor Books and other documents. Surnames in the Concordance are in alphabetic order using the Hebrew transliteration. This section describes each source document and shows the abbreviations we use in the Source column to identify the source documents.

AGAD (Warsaw), 1747 Black Book
A 1747 Court Record of a trial of 14 Kremenets-area Jews accused of ritual murder

Abbreviation in Source Column: AGAD, 1747 Black Book                              Location: KehilaLinks Site

Ksiega czarna/zloczyncow/sadu wojtowsko - lawniczego m. Krzemienca. Opis zewnetrzny: Ks. opr. w ciemna skore (pol.). UWAGI: Zob Nabytki odo... 58. Daty, 1747-1764.

Nabutki Niedokumentowe, oddzia½ I AGAD, zespo½ 420, Sygnatura 058. TreÊç: Ksiega miasta Krzemieniec na Wolyniu. (Locality book for Kremenets in Volyn), Years 1747-1764. Previous AGAD catalog number: 0105/1. Language: Polish. Previous Vacat added to no. 420; About 250 pages.

 

This document is the official record of a court trial held in Zaslaw (now Izyaslav), in the Kremenets District, in April and May 1747. In it, 14 Jews are accused of murdering a Christian traveler, draining his blood and using the blood in matzoh. The Jews were convicted after testimony elicited under torture. Their penalties are gruesome. This type of accusation is known as “ritual murder” or “blood libel”. It has been a primary instrument of anti-semitism since at least the 11th century. It has been proven false over and over again, but still persists, even to this day. Jacek Proszyk translated the document from archaic Polish to modern Polish. One of our Kremenets members (who wishes to remain anonymous) translated the document from modern Polish to English.

 

Names in italics are in Polish from the original document. They follow the transliterated surnames. The “Location in Source” column gives the page number in the original document where each name is occurs.

 

Cemeteries / Burial Data

Center for Jewish Art (CJA), Hebrew University, Jerusalem

Abbreviation in Source Column: Cem-CJA-xxx-yyyy                    Location: not currently available

 

In the 1990s, the Center for Jewish Art (Hebrew University, Jerusalem) went on several expeditions to Jewish cemeteries in the towns of Volhynia Guberniya. These Concordance entries derive from the matzeva photos they took and gravestone data they recorded. Each item is identified in the Source column of the Concordance by the abbreviation CJA-xxx-yyyy. The xxx is the name of the town where the Cemetery is located. The yyyy is the year recorded on the matzeva. If the year cannot be read, it is replaced by unknown. The Location in Source column gives the CJA identification number for each stone, followed by the recorded year, if available.

 

The CJA data sheets contain detailed descriptions of the matzevot, the inscription in Hebrew, English translation the inscription, and remarks that explain the source and context of phrases in each inscription. Note that most of these matzevot do not contain surnames, but most include patronymics (given name of the deceased’s father). We have included the patronymic in the Given Name column of the Concordance. Also, if the deceased of the deceased’s father was a Rabbi, that information is included in the Given Name column.

Vital Records (VR)

 

Abbreviation in Source Column: VR Kremenets 60B1870, or,

 VR Vyshgorodok CA-B1888            

 

Location: Contributor Site (all records);

JRI-Poland (proofed records)

 

These are examples of source abbreviations for names from vital records. The Kremenets entries give you the town name and abbreviated LDS Microfilm Number, tells you what type of record this is (B=Birth, M=Marriage, v=Divorce, D=Death), and in what year the event occurred. For example: 60B1870 means that the microfilm number is 2086060, the record is a birth record, and the birth occurred in 1870. Entries for other towns give the town name; CA means the records were obtained from the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People (CAHJP), B1888 means this is an 1888 Birth record.

 

For Kremenets, the “Location in Source” column identifies the file number from the corresponding cd‑rom data disk. For Vyshgorodok, the “Location in Source” column entry is the page number that is on the original ledger page. The “Location in Source” column also tells you whether the event involves a male, female or both (F=female, M=Male, x=both, as in a marriage), as well as the sequential event number. For example: for vital records obtained from the LDS Family History Library, 351 F43 in combination with 60B1870 means that this record is the 43rd female birth in 1870. The record is in file 351 on LDS disk (microfilm number) 2086060. Each record on the microfilms is uniquely identified in this way.

 

Similarly, for vital records obtained from CAHJP, the Location in Source entry 5322-5323 F41, means the record is in files 5322 and 5323 and is the 41st female birth in that dataset.
