My mother's name was Zeldin (became to Seldin in US).  Her Father's Father was Hirschl Seldin. His father was Daniel Zeldin.  Daniel's other children are Nakhum, Hinda, and Schmeryl.  Daniel's brother was Reuben ( who was married to Esther) and had a son Mendl (married to Basia Zeldin).  Mendl and Basia's children are Harry, Nakhum, Esther, Reuben and Daniel (as you indicated).  I was over Harry's house, visited with Reuben many times, saw esther at famly affairs, and know Esther's children (in their 70's now).There are about 600 members of this family now.
 
I  should also tell you that I attended the Glubokie Society meetings in lower Manhattan in the 1950's with my grandfather--about 50 people.  As you probably know, these were all people in the NY City area who came from Glubokie.  I wish i had their names now.  Gone forever....

The various day-by-day accounts of Napoleon's march into and retreat
from Russia in 1812 are filled with references to the towns and villages
where Jews lived in Poland and the Pale of Settlement. On the way to
Moscow the emperor stayed in KOVNO, VILNA, GLUBOKOYE and VITEBSK. His path back to France went through LIADY, TOLOTCHINE, BOBER,
STARO-BORISOV, STUDIANKA north of BORISOV, KAMEN, PLECHNITSIE, a bleak
village named MISEROWO by the French nobles, MOLODETCHNO, SMORGONI,
OSCHMIANA, VILNA, KOVNO, PULTUSK, WARSAW and KUTNO. So seek out books of Napoleon's Campaign to find descriptions of the
towns and villages listed above..---------------.

In the Encyclopaedia judaica I find this about Samuel MOHILEWER. Perhaps you can do somthink with this. I dont know if it is the same man but how know?. I dont take over all the articel it is to much for the Jdg.Ury Link
Amsterdam
HollandMOHILEWER, Samuel (1824-1898), rabbi, early member of Hovevei Zion in
Russia, and a founder of religious Zionism. Born in Glebokie (now
Glubokoye), Vilna district, the son of a rabbinical family. He was
ordained a rabbi (1842), became rabbi in Glebokie in 1848, in Szaki from 1854, in Suwalki 1860 and in Radom from 1868. Active in community
affairs in each place especially during the Polish rebellion (1863).
In 1873 he participated in the St. Petersburg gathering of rabbis. He was attracted to the idea of settling Erez Israel even before the 1881 pogroms, but after they took place he went to Brody and Lvov to encourage refugees who fled Russia and to influence ... the stream of migration to Erez Israel

Hello!
I recently undertook a 'mass mailing' to 38 people in the U.S. whose names
I found in Internet phone directories with the name KUNKIS/KUNKES or
alternative spellings. This is my maiden name, and quite unusual. From
responses I received from 8 people, it appears so far that there are 3 family
groups (unknown yet if we are related), all Jewish, and from the area within
100-150 miles surrounding Minsk. International telephone directory research
shows about 25 listings in Germany, also. I contacted one of them by e-mail,
and from what he told me I don't believe he is Jewish (he did not say he was
when I mentioned that I am), but his father was from Riga, Latvia (same general
area, within a few hundred miles).
My grandfather came from Globukoye, Belarus, arriving in the U.S. in
1912. My question is this:
Does anyone have any idea of the origin of this name? Its derivation?
What it means? The best I can do so far is trace people back to the area
around Minsk guberniya and/or Latvia.
Thanks for any help you can offer!Carol Kunkis Cohn

I want to compliment you on your attractive and very informative website. I am particularly interested in postcard 11, "the four Ceitel sisters and a cousin". They are my grandmother Rebecca's four younger sisters, Zelda (Zhenia), Miriam (Mania), Braine (Berta) and little Chana (Ania). When this picture was taken in 1913, my grandmother had already immigrated to the United States with her husband and youngest son, my father. She never again had contact with her sisters who remained in Poland (Russia), but after the fall of Soviet Russia, her descendents renewed contact with her sisters' descendents. I sent copies of the pictures to Vava, Miriam's son, who now lives in New Jersey, to Leah, Chana's daughter, who now lives in Israel and to Max Gutkin, the cousin's nephew,who has lived in Israel since the establishment of the State. Since none of my relatives know the source of this picture, I wonder if you could provide some information as to how this picture got on your website. Looking forward to hearing from you - Janice Kaufman (I was born in New York but made aliya in 1970 with my husband and four sons)

I have been reading the story about Kaziany. My Father (born in 1928,
the son of Shlomo Hochman and his wife from the Pukin family of
Glubokie) and his family was from that shetel Kaziany and were with
the partisans in the forests (the father survived with parents, 2
brothers and one sister. In 1946 the family came to America ( the
mother had sisters in the U.S and they helped in order to include them
on the first ship which took survivors to America)
Do you have any knowledge of Lansdsliet Association ?

It's great that the stories are on online.

I am planning on visiting Belarus for a one day visit to Dunilowitz and
Glebokie in August and am interested in anyone else's experience in visiting
these towns. Has anyone worked through the Jewish Heritage Research Group
in Belarus? (Please respond privately to me on this question)

My great-grandparents, Schloime and Malka Raichel (later changed to
Rothchild) and all of their grandchildren came from Dunilowitz. My
great-grandfather's parents were Pinchus Mordechai Raichel and Malka
Liebowitz. My great-grandmother was born in Glebokie to Pinches Scher and
Chaja Gitl Gold. I would be interested in any potential linkages as an
additional line of inquiry. I will be in Vilnius for a month prior at the
Vilnius Yiddish Institute and hope to do some research in their archives as
well.

I will be in Vilnius, Lithuania for a month for the Vilnius Yiddish
Institute and hope to get a chance to go to the archives and do some
research. The two towns that I am researching, Dunilovichi and Glebokie,
both have census data that is held at the Vilnius Archives. I am interested
in whether anyone has done research at the Archives. I've contacted a few
researchers, but am thinking about doing some of my own research if the
archives are accessible. I can work my way through Cyrillic Russian, albeit
slowly. If anyone has been there, I'm interested in whether you had earlier
communications with the archives prior to your visit, if you have an e-mail
address that works for the archives(I have one that apparently doesn't)and
if they let you photocopy records or at least take a photograph. Also any
costs that are assessed if you are there in person doing your own research.
Alternatively is there a researcher that you recommend who will work with
you while you are there?

Subject: remaining 256 records of the Glubokoye Society of New York

Is there any way to post the remaining 256 records from the "Glubokoye
Society of New York" link? The current list is truncated after 200

records.
We are most interested in the "K"'s - i.e.KLIOT.

Thanks so much. Your site has been most helpful in our family searches.

This year the Disna District Research Group has funded the translation of
the Disna District Additional Revision List 1851-1856 and the 1857 District
Farmers List. As well work has begun on the 1834 Revision list and data
for the three towns of Glubokoye, Golubichi and Germanovichi has been
received. Together this represents 3,300 lines of new data which is not
yet on the All Lithuania Database (ALD).

Translation work is now underway for the following towns.

Leonpol (Disna)1834 RL
Luzhki (Disna) 1834 RL

With the translation of the above two lists, the district will be out of
funds and work will come to a complete halt.

The following towns in the Disna District 1834 RL are waiting to be
translated. The only holdup is a lack of funds.

Disna around 1800 lines,
Druya around 1900 lines,
Plissa around 550 lines,
Postavy around 550 lines
Sharkovshchizna around 500 lines.

The translation cost is $0.55 per line. If you can raise the necessary
funds to have any of the above towns translated, those towns will be next
in line to be translated. Please let us know if you are willing to
contribute to a particular town or are willing to try and raise the
necessary funds.

If you are already a contributor to the work of Disna District, please
consider making another contribution. Would you like to become a
contributor and receive copies of all records as they are translated
in spreadsheet format ? - please make a contribution of $100 at
www.litvaksig.org
http://www.litvaksig.org/contribute.

No donation is too small but $100 is requried to become a qualified
contributor.

Hi There ,

I am a musician, historian and artistic curator. I have been compiling information about Jewish mandolin orchestras that were active in prewar Europe. I am also part of a very interesting musical project called the Ger Mandolin Orchestra that memorializes this phenomenon. You can read about the project here: http://www.tocentre.com/georgeweston/GerMandolinOrchestra 

I came across your page about the town of Glubokie and saw the photo of the mandolin orchestra, presumably from the yizkor book...? Is it possible to get a higher resolution scan of this picture, and can you tell me any information that may have been written along with the source for this picture, about the mandolin orchestra itself? 

Thanks!
Eric

I read a paragraph on the Glubokoye Archives web page (eilatgordinlevitan.com) about the Zeldin (Seldin in USA) family and want very much to communicate with you.  I am Joan Seldin Rosenthal whose grandfather was Mendl (Max) Seldin, married to Basia (Bertha).  My father was Nakhum (Nathaniel).  I still am in contact with Esther's children (who are now in their 80's) and other Seldin relatives.

I don't know what year this notice was written but I hope to connect with you. Since you mentioned Esther's children are in their 70's I assume this was written about 10 years ago.

By way of introduction I am an amateur historian who enjoys collecting, keeping, and sharing the memories and stories of World War Two.  The purpose of my email is to first thank you so very much for creating a web page to remember the victims of a horrible war and also the heroes of the town (partisans).  Secondly, I have an inquiry you may or may not be interested to talk about.  I recently acquired two items from an SS Polizei Officer who was station and buried in Glubokoje.  One item is very, very rare and I would like to learn more about it to eventually donate to a history museum for viewing.  It is a Camp Sign, that was once hung somewhere in Glubokoje.  "Actung" with the red electric bolt and a warning skull and crossbones behind the electric bolt.  It could have been used in one of the warehouse rooms that your photos show.  Or it could have been in the Ghetto before it was "emptied"  The other item is a letter, from the officer to his family sent about two weeks before he was killed by the partisans.  In the letter he mentions partisan attacks, etc.  He died about April 26th, 1944, I am assuming during operation fruhlingsfesf which took place from 04-17 to 05-12-1944.  Do you have any additional pictures showing any painted warning signs in Globokoye?  Or pictures with German SS Polizei in them?  As i mentioned I am a young collector with many years to still collect and research.  My goal is to open my own WW2 history museum one day to share the stories so younger generations will remember those who gave their lives in the worst war in history.  Too many are not aware of these stories, and it should be something that stays with us for generations to come if we want to prevent anything like WW2 from happening again.  I truly appreciate your time and assistance.  Please feel free to ask any questions as I am more than happy to answer!  

PS - When I open my museum in the decade or two to come - there will be a section with the entire history of Glubokoye displayed including the family's history, and their stories.  Similar to your website :)
