    2. Jim Jackson
    3. We just wanted to encourage you all to make use of this list in your family searches. A large number of Rootsweb lists have been made inactive due to no messages over a period of time. We want to keep as many lists active as we possibly can and your participation will help toward that goal. If you have a "brick wall" in your family search, send in a message with as much information as you have and let's see if someone may be able to help fill in those blanks. Best wishes, Jim and Di

    1. Re: [RUS-SAINT-PETERSBURG] Russian Terms
    2. Steve Levine
    3. Jon, I could provide some help, if no one more fluent volunteers. I had a couple years of Russian in college, and still have the bilingual dictionaries and grammar guides. I'll probably be ordering some Russian LDS films myself shortly. You can also Google the words <Russian translation> and get several free automated translators. The first one listed is http://translation2.paralink.com/. It gives you a too tiny Russian keyboard, with letters ordered presumably as they would appear on a Russian typewriter. I would prefer either straight alphabetical or something close to QWERTY, but if you plan on applying for a job at a Russian secretarial service (?????????? ???????????? ????????????) it is useful. (I'll be interested to see if those characters survive this email message,) Note you do not have to click on the tiny keys, as while the tiny keyboard is active, it allows you to type Russian letters on your computers keyboard. Also, it seems to be mostly a word-for-word translation, and does not deal with common usage, as I notice that English-to-Russian for both Good Day! and Good night! did not conform to standard Russian usage, at least not as I was taught. I might play with a few of the other free services. Of course, if you're dealing with script Cyrillic, you may have to send me or someone else jpegs if you don't recognize the characters. If worst comes to worst, I have an email acquaintance in Russia who owes me a favor or two.

Marta LARDONG nee RIEDEL (b - 1885 Saratov, Russia) (b - 1937 Lithuania) Friedrich & Marta married in St. Petersburg in Russia between (1906 to 1916).

    1. [RUS-SAINT-PETERSBURG] SCHWEINBERGER & DE LARDON
    2. Jon
    3. Seeking help. Originally hailing from Austria, the family were displaced during the 30 year Religious war (1618-1648) and settled down in Lithuania. >From that time they spent the next 300 years living in Lithuania. They spent most of their time in Kybartai. They worked in Russia for the Tsar. Between WWI and WWII they moved to Germany and later immigrated to Australia after WWII. The information that I have; Friedrich SCHWEINBERGER m) (~1912) to Martah REIDEL. (Her maiden name was DE LARDON, but REIDEL by first marriage) Friedrich drove the train for the Tsar from Germany to Russia. Whilst Martah was worked for the Tsarina Alexandria. Martah's parents (DE LARDON) apparently owned a large wool mill outside St. Petersburg, where she grew up. What I am looking for is employment records or confirmation that SCHWINBERGER & DE LARDON worked for the Tsar. They are two names that are very distinctive, but hard to research. DE LARDON may ring a few bells considering her family were from St. Petersburg area. Maybe there are records that will reveal the family's wool mill or train records on who was driving the Tsar's train. I really hope someone can help. Fond regards, Jon Oldfield Sydney, Australia.

    3. Max Thank you for the warning. Edward on the list had already mentioned that some of the Archives were in transit and not likely to be available when I visit. But as it is, I am not really in a position yet to go through any records, having only recently started looking in this part of the world. I will just have to see the sights instead! Thank you again.

    3. Jennifer, Just be aware that the Russian State Historical Archive in St Petersburg is moving out of its existing building. I'm not sure about the timing but this could've started already which means the archive is closed for public for a couple years.

    1. German Ancestor in St. Petersburgh pre-WWII
    2. Graeme Boocock
    3. I am looking for information regarding a missing family member who moved to St. Petersburgh from Germany before WWII. His name was James Lewin (the precise spelling of the surname is in question) and he was a physician who was forced to emigrate before the war. We suspect he was probably expelled at the onset of war with Russia, and may have been sent to work with the German army on the Russian front. His son attempted to trace him through the Red Cross after the war but was not successful. Would there likely be any extant records relating immigrants, doctors in St. Petersburgh, or deaths on the Russian front that I would be able to search? Thanks very much, Graeme. --- Cambridge

    3. -----Original Message----- From: paul graham [mailto:topaulgraham@bigpond.com] Sent: Monday, 15 May 2006 5:04 PM To: Russia Subject: Terrisk Hi, another first timer. I'm trying to find the location and date of the death of my grandmother Juulie or Julia Terresk. She was born 10 05 1895 in Polna near Gdov the daughter of Lotti Terresk born 20 02 1870 in Rapina Estonia and an unnamed father. I have an unconfirmed report that Juulie died near Leningrad just after the second world war. I'm also trying to trace the early life of my father known here in Australia as Eduard Prei, born 22 06 1922. He is the son of Juulie Terresk and August Prei. I don't think they ever married so Eduard's name could quite easily be Terresk as well. The Terresk family all lived around Partisanskaya near Gdov. Any help would greatly appreciated. Thankyou Paul

    1. University of St Petersburg - Archives
    2. JenniferCoull
    3. Thank you to the two list members who replied very quickly to my request for help: 1. Edward My 2 attempts at replies to your own E-mail have been bounced, with the message "content rejected" so I am posting this message to the list. Thank you very much for the information about the Central State Historical Archive. I will try e-mailing them via their link on the page you gave. From what I could make out on their web site, (not reading Russian), some parts of the archives are open from 10.00 - 16.00 but other parts close over lunch 12.00-14.00. Do you know, once you are at the Archives, if they have any guidance/information etc in English? Your question about whether I was sure that my named interest had studied medicine at St Petersburg university - in fact I presumed that she had studied there. I made a rather hasty jump to maybe the wrong conclusion, when I was told Jelena had graduated in medicine from St Petersburg in 1917. Is it likely to have been some other institution rather than the University? The only other information I have about her around this time in her life is that she was an outstanding student and was awarded a trip to Montenegro as some sort of prize after graduating (this could of course be a family fairy story!). I do know that she was practising medicine in Odessa in 1919 - I have some sort of certificate in Russian confirming that. Also, would Jelena have been known by her father's surname Skibinski or Skibinskaya? I am not acquainted with the endings of names yet. I really appreciate your help. Many thanks. 2. David Thank you too for your reply to my request for help. I have just finished reading through the pages of your website, covering your visit to St Petersburg in 2004. It is very interesting and gives some ideas for sightseeing if I have time there. Again I appreciate any help you may be able to give, being completely at the mercy of others, not being able to read/speak/understand any Russian. Thank you again Jenny Coull

    2. JenniferCoull
    3. This is my first attempt at finding information about this part of the world, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that there will be some list members able to give advice. I am hoping to find University records for two people who studied at St Petersburg University, which may be able to add to the limited information I currently have: 1. Eugeniusz Skibinski, Polish architect, born 1858, who studied at St Petersburg (possibly Institute of Civil Engineering) in the 1880's, and then went on to design many buildings in Baku, Azerbaijan. 2. Jelena Skibinski/aya, born Baku 1895, who graduated in medicine from St Petersburg University in 1917. I am visiting St Petersburg in June and hope that I will be able to pursue things there - though I have no idea as to the availability of information to the general public as this is all completely new to me. Thank you in advance to anyone able to help. Jenny Coull

    1. PAUL-NEWMAN
    2. Barbara Prowse
    3. Frances NEWMAN is said to have gone to Russia as a governess in the early 1800s. But she married Dr Frederick PAUL on 7th. Feb 1825 at British Chaplaincy, St Petersburg, Russia. The witnesses are titled Russians. After Frederick died Frances returned to England where she died in about 1854. My grandchildren are descended from Frances' sister Martha Mary NEWMAN, who married Samuel WEBBER in London and emigrated to South Africa in 1826. We know very little about the family at this point, though it is possible they came from the Isle of Wight. I wonder whether there is any information about Frederick or Frances in any records, including his death and a possible Will. Frances left money to her South Africa family but I can't trace a Will in England. Any pointers would be most welcome, as we are trying to trace the Newman roots. Thank you Barbara Prowse.

    1. Swindlehurst family
    2. Carol Gearing
    3. I am searching for any information on how to find out about my great grandparents and children. In the england census for 1901 it shows two additional children to the family MABEL aged 2 and OLGA aged 1 and states them being born in Russia but british subjects. However, the parents are not named all the children live with the heads mother in law a Lydia Peters residing at 12 Eyet Street, Parish of Leigh, Lanchashire. Family history has the story that my great grandfather went to St Petersburg with his brother, there is a photograph of two men in long fur coats but nobody is sure who exactly they are. Dentists profession was mentioned although my grandfather was a "Spinning Master" in a cotton Mill. England census 1891 shows my grandparents residing at 56 Carmen Street in the parish of Alverstoke, Manchester. Arthur H Swindlehurst, Ada Martha peters and their first son Oswald aged 11 months born Leigh, Lancashire. They went on to have daughter Florrie, son Edgar (my grandfather) and Mabel and Olga born Russia. Does anyone know how I would go about finding out emmigration details? Birth records of children and death details perhaps of my great grandparents? Regards CAROL -- Carol Gearing carol@mountephraim.fsworld.co.uk
