Primary Records of Other Nations Created about those from Lyakhovichi


This is a page in our Documents section. Click the button labeled "Documents" in the left-hand column to reach all of the other resources of the Document area.

We have greatly expanded the coverage of primary records in in the nations to which Lechovichers emigrated, their "nations of landing." There is now a link box on the first page of this new series of pages. Please go to Nations of Landing Records - US Federal Records - The Military to find the table of links to all of the pages.


United States Federal Records - The Military
by Deborah G. Glassman, copyright 2007

The United States has few records in the national jurisdiction and even less of them cite a specific town of birth. Social Security applications were a fairly late innovation for the last generations born in Lyakhovichi and privacy considerations prevent their release (except to next of kin) before a certain number of years. The major US record types that provide this information are immigration records, which we discuss on other pages of our site, and military registration and service records, which we look at here.

Jews have served in every war in US history, but the documents relating to Lechovicher Jews seem to indicate that their first service was in Spanish-American War where they are reported in the Phillipines, Cuba, and in other theaters of the war. But the massive mobilization of manpower that was witnessed as modern nations geared-up for a Twentieth Century war, coincided with the arrival in the United States of the largest numbers of Lyakhovichi natives. Even our first clues to earlier service periods in the US military come from World War I Draft Registration cards which reported prior military service. The great preponderance of such military knowledge for Lechovichers was gained in the Russian Army, but a few refer there to the Spanish American war.

World War I impacted both those Jews still living in Lyakhovichi and those who had settled elsewhere. World War One moved and registered men on a massive scale. Lyakhovichi Jews still in their town were mobilized ieven if they had fulfilled their "reserve" phase of compulsary service. Lyakhovichi emigrants in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and British territories (including Canada, Palestine, Australia, and more) were required to register for service even if they would claim an exemption. In the United States, if you were born between 1874 and 1900, you were legally required to go to your draft board for an examination, the filing of an officially witnessed draft registration card, and an opportunity to state your reasons that you thought yourself exempt from service. Those who had not begun the process of American citizenship and wished to be considered as Russian subjects, were required to go to the Russian consulate and file that country's necessary documentation. There was no relief though from service, through that route, the Russian government told you to pay your own way back to Russia and report for duty.

There are two major record groups extracted on this page - records related to Lyakhovichi emigrants who registerd for service in World War I, and records related to Lyakhovichi emigrants who registered for service in the Old Man's Draft of WW II. It does not include the service records for those born in the United States whose parents emigrated from Lyakhovichi - a preponderance of Lechovicher families in the US were represented by their US-born sons in World War II.

Lechovichers in WWI Military Records of the United States

Before we look at the specific records created for Draft Registration in 1917 and 1918, it is handy to juggle some numbers. Try this breakdown, which is just rough guessing and I would like to have someone knowledgeable handle the numerical evidence and come to some real conclusions.

Of approximately 2,000 immigrants specifically from our town, (so not counting people from the immediate surrounds and excluding those from Baranovichi specifically,)

1. Remove all of the women and daughters who emigrated (say 60% of total emigrants which is stated as the usual percentage in various reports of movement through NYC and Philadelphia. There was a smaller percentage through the specialized recruitment for Galveston.)
2. Remove all of the men who were born before 1874 (I've no idea - twenty percent?)
3. Remove all of those of the right age group who died between their date of arrival and 1917 (this number should be low - adult men without close proximity to violence shouldn't die in great numbers between 18 and forty - so 3 percent?)
Conclusion - This would seem to me to suggest that there are around 300 draft-eligible men we should expect to find in US records between those who actually served and those who registered for the draft as required. Help us find them, count them, and learn about them. Or help me learn why this reasoning is flawed and the real number for which to search.

The materials collected below are part of a general search for the town of Lyakhovichi in the hundreds of thousands of US draft cards of men from Russia. Because that remains too daunting a task for a website whose field of interest is one specific town, not Russian Jewry as a whole, I ask for your help in looking for people of your family names and connected families in these records. Please send me copies of anyone whose record states they were born in our town. A very small percentage of these cards also designates a specific birthplace for the father of the young men: if you have such a find, please share it. It would be valuable to know if a father was born in Lyakhovichi and the son elsewhere, or vice versa.

The World War I Draft Records have been significantly augmented in the August 2009 and November 2009 editions. Using Death Records, Burial Records, and input from researchers investigating their Lechovicher connections, we have been able to add the WWI Draft cards of a number of men between 18 and 40 originating in our town. Some specify a birthplace in Lyakhovichi. Others do not, but they are men whose 1918 address clearly connects them to people identified as of our town. Max Zablotsky and Max Zabelle are two cards for the same man, but the key factor for us is that his home address is the same given for Morris Zabelle who is buried in the Lechovicher plot at Washington Cemetery. Jacob Angelovitz died in 1929 in NYC and is buried in those same Lechovicher graves at Washington Cemetery - a search of the draft address of this Manhattanite of 1929 finds him already at that address in the 1918 Draft records.

I have rearranged this table of Draft Registration data. First you can find alphabetically those who clearly state that their home was Lechovitz or that their father was born there, with a sprinkling who state Baranovichi. Second you can find alphabetically those who can be otherwise identified with Lyakhovichi. All of the images have been edited for speedier loading on your page.

Building a database of all Lechovichers registered for a US Draft requires your help. Send your finds in the draft records for people you know to have been born in Lyakhovichi. We will not wait until a scheduled update to add them to the site. Following the images of World War I Draft Registration cards below, there is another list, which I initially created by extracting a list of seventy men who had registered for another war mobilization - the 1942 "Old Man's Draft." It registered men born between 1874 and 1900. The age breakdown was unusual and in my family, it meant that older siblings of my grandparents were listed and younger ones were not. As a data source, it also provides interesting information. People who had entered the United States claiming a younger age, were less concerned about keeping up that pretense as they became aware that they were not going to be "sent back to Russia" for fibbing about their age on entry forms. Often, the later document shows a shared "birthday" but an earlier year, than the document created for World War I's registration, twenty-four years earlier. I am sure there are many more of these to find as well, please share the finds you make in your research!

This update significantly increases both the raw and the extracted material available on these men, their families, and their livelihoods. I have doubled the number of men originally recorded in our tallies of those registered for World War I and more than doubled the numbers of those we gathered from the Old Man's Draft. I have extracted their names, and those of their nearest relatives and have begun reporting on employers named in their records. There is much more to do but you will find that the original 100 names indexed from this single page is now more than 700 names!

Lechovichers in the US Military


Private John Levy
The English states that he died in the World War Aug 26, 1918; The Yiddish specifies that he died in the War in the Land of France (Frankreich). The broken trunk design of the matseva tells of a young man cut off in the midst of live, the waiving US flags at the bottom are a very American motif. He is buried in the Lechovicher plot in Washington Cemetery. Thanks to Tina Levine for taking the photos!

 
Meyer Kaplan who died Oct 1, 1918 in the World War. He is also buried in the Lechovicher plot in Washington Cemetery. There may have been a military reason that there was a delayed burial. The order of burial in that row suggests that the burial did not occur until after summer 1921 and before Feb 1924.

 
Private First Class Irwin Feirstein who died Dec 6, 1946 died in the service of his nation on the island of Guam. Look at the airplane in the broken trees! And the broken trunk uses an ancient motif to express this family's loss for their "darling son." He is buried in the Lechovicher plots at Mount Judah.

 
Private Jack A. Perelberg died in the line of duty Jan 27, 1945. Here the insignia of his Airborne division is proudly displayed in his broken tree. The photo of Jack that had been at the top of the heart stone face, was missing when this photo was taken by Tina Levine in 2008.


Nathan Mandel has the rarest of the WWi draft registration forms, showing both his birthplace and his father's. He was born in Nesvizh and his father in Lyakhovichi!
