• Krewa
Modern Music in Belarus :: Alexander Litvinovsky
symphonic fresco (1987)

Duration:7'48''

Performed by Symphony Orchestra of Belarusian National Broadcasting
Company. Conductor: Anantol Lapunov

Krewa is an ancient Belarusian town which was the capital of a
principality in the 14 century. Presently, Castle Krewa looks like
picturesque ruins. This symphonic fresco was inspired by historical
events and legends, and reflects the spirit of a romantic olden time.

Avraham Gershonovitz was born in Krewo to Gutel nee Liond and Yekutiel
Gershonovitz. He was a tailor and married to Mera nee Rozenblum. Prior
to WWII he lived in Smorgon, Poland. During the war he was in Smorgon,
Poland. Avraham perished in 1943 in the Shoah at the age of 40 with
wife and children; Yekutiel age 9, Mera age 11, Guta age 13. This
information is based on a Page of Testimony submitted on 02-Nov-1998
by his cousin

Long ago, I accessed the 1858 Revision Lists at
JewishGen and found a LEMELMAN family in Krevo,
Oshmiany Uyzed, Vilnius Gubernia.

My LEMELMAN family came from the very same area, but
without further (i.e. later) records, I'm unable to
match the family that I found in the 1858 RL with my
own family, although I *know* they are related
(mostly because LEMELMAN is a rather uncommon surname,
but also because 2 members of the family in the 1858 RL
have the same first names as my LEMELMAN family).

I've recently re-opened this line of research and am
again frustrated at the missing pieces.

I am aware that this town is now within the boundaries
of Belarus, but I'm hoping that someone in the Litvak
SIG can advise me of whether the Jewish genealogical
community has access to later Revision Lists from this
area, or if there are plans to acquire such a thing in
the near future.

LitvakSIG translated the 1858 Oshmiany District
Revision List which included the town of Krevo. We are getting
ready to translate another major Oshmiany District list and have two
choices: the 1834 Revision List or the 1859-1908 Additional
Revision Lists, a string of lists of inhabitants who were not
included in the 1858 Revision List. These additional lists were made
during various years, but not consecutive years during the period
covered.

For the town of Krevo itself, it is included in revision lists of 1784,
1811, 1816, 1834, and 1858--nothing later in the Lithuanian archives. A
search on the Routes to Roots Foundation website will display the
details:
www.rtrfoundation.orgThe rtr site also refers to an 1875 list for the town of Oshmiany.
We shall look into this further to determine what sort of list it is.You may wish to join the LitvakSIG Oshmiany District Research Group in
order to receive all translations to date as well as the list in the
translation queue and any others we may translate as long as funds are
available. A minimum donation of $100 is required. For contribution
