Important Information about this Database shared on each of the above linked pages

This Database is designed to be a collaborative effort, a place where research is shared in a timely fashion, where others are able to see what we know right now about people who were born in Lyakhovichi. The goal is to find the names of as many married couples as possible where at least one of the parties was born in or resided in Lyakhovichi. Privacy concerns will keep most of our efforts focused on people who were born in the nineteenth century and the early twentieth. This list starts off drawing on three kinds of records. Immigration Records; Holocaust Testimony; and the pages that some of you have begun sending me on your personal research to be shared. The Immigrant Lists, because the dispersal of families in the early twentieth century separated many of Lyakhovichi heritage from cousins who stayed, went to other cities, and went to other countries. The Holocaust lists, because it is a good reminder that despite the Nazis best efforts, these people remain a part of our families and we reaffirm our committment to learn about each of them and keep them in our memories. The shared research, because we are the repositories of our family's oral history, photographic heritage, and the many documents that have always been in the private sector. Go to Married Couple's Database Project to see how to contribute, how to volunteer to edit a page for this Database, and more.

As you look at the table on the folowing pages, please note that even for these people on whom we have starting information, there is much more we can learn if those who spot their relatives will share information. Specifics include:

If a person is reported in the Holocaust Testimony, that does not mean that they died in the Holocaust, but means that a member of their family did and they may have been cited as relatives father, mother, spouse, child, et al. Many people who we can add to the Married Couples database, lost their adult children in the Holocaust, long after their own deaths. We can see this in families where many of the young people who perished, are carrying the names of their grandparents who died before World War I. If you use this resource to identify family members who filed these reports, or you are the knowledgeable party, please let us know more relevant details about anyone named.

There are other records suggested by these records. If a person is named in an immigration record there may be a US death certificate that provides the names of both parents including mother's maiden name. The draft records of World War I, citizenship papers, visa applications for late immigrants, etc. may be found by you as you recognize new names to add to your search. Please share your findings. If a person is named in a Holocaust Testimony but died before the Shoah, they may appear in the records of other countries in which they lived and died. And the record of a sibling may provide clues every bit as valuable as those of youor direct ancestors.

You may see a reference to additional information available about a particular family in the 1874 List of Jewish Males of Lyahovichi or the 1858-1884 Supplementary Revision Lists of Lyakhovichi. Both of these sources are still being brought to publication by supporters of the Lyakhovichi Resource Group. Contact Gary Palgon to learn how you can contribute and view this information now. Lack of such notice doesn't mean that they are not there, just that the webmaster ran out of time in this update!

The entire Married Couples Database has been indexed for the November 2009 and the ordering has been rearranged. Surnames beginning with the letter Y in the US probably started with a J in Latin letter alphabets before emigration. Sometimes the letter E in English replaces the Russian Ye sound. So Jelin, Elin, and Yelin are all the same name in Lyakhovichi.
