HIAS Records #general

Jackye Sullins <jackye@...>
 

I am confused as to where one can find old HIAS records >from the turn of
the century forward for cities across the U.S. I read a recent article
by SallyAnn Sack where she described contacting the local HIAS office in
each city and obtaining records. I couldn't find any listings for such
offices in the cities of interest to me so I contacted HIAS in NY by
e-mail and snail mail. I received an e-mail response that my request
was being forwarded to the proper person, then a response that the
records don't start until 1904 or so and then nothing. I've had no
response to my snail mail. Someone then told me that YIVO has all the
old HIAS records and I sent off a snail mail to them. No response. Am
I correct in assuming that the filmed records in Philadelphia are just
for those who arrived at that port? I need the records for other
cities.

Thus the question, where in the world are the HIAS records?

Manhattan Shirt Company, NJ #general

bdavis@...
 

Can anyone kindly help me with information about either Simon ROSENBERG or
his Manhattan Shirt Company in Lakewood New Jersey in the 1930s. I
understand that he married and had two sons and a daughter (who would
probably by now be grandparents!). Any suggestions about how I can trace
their current whereabouts? As I have mentioned previously on this list, I
will be in New York in mid-May, so any help will be greatly appreciated.

Beverley Davis; Melbourne, Australia (leaving in four days)

Knyszyn - shtetl - Poland #general

jsher@...
 

My brother told me of a shtel near Bialystock called Knyszyn ( I think thats
the spelling) Supposedly our great grandparents died in a huge fire there
and I'm just trying to find more information about that and maybe finding
out the names of people perished? I'm not sure of their last names - it is
near the name BERIJINSKY- or BREZENSKY (grandfather's side) ( don't know if
I have the right spelling) because it was changed to Chesler during the war
I think, also LUBELSKY. (grandmother's side >from Bialystock I believe). I'm
not sure where to look for this information. I checked the JewishGen
shtetl website and found a map if Knyszyn but would like more info. Thanks.
