Re: Register of Slovak Survivors #hungary

I was sent this notice and have contacted the book dealer for additional
details.
Any takers on Naomi's suggestion (see below). I'll put up $150. Anyone else?
If we get it
I will make copies for volunteers to input the information on a database to
put on our
website or on the Jewishgen site.



Thanks for the lead I have already contacted the dealer for further
information.

clipped, light wear, Good+ Condition. Scarce Massive 3-volume set, dated
October 15, 1945, documenting the surviving remnant in Solvakia.

Re: Jewish Landownership in the late 19th Century #belarus

Although it was true in some parts, it's a popular myth that Jews
were not allowed to own land. Similar to the myth that Jews were
not allowed to engage in any professions other than moneylending.

A cancelled Cert. of Naturalization # #general

Mitch Mermel
 

My grandmother's petition for naturalization lists a Cert of Nat. # with
the word "cancelled" hand written above it, and a new and much higher
Certificate number (issued in 1929) written on the line below the first
number.

Any ideas what this might indicate?

Re: Help: translate one birth record in Russian script #general

Joe Armata <armata+@...>
 

I think "Zadvud." is actually "Zablud" - compare the b in Abramovich
and the l in Rosental. Today that root refers to being lost or
having gone astray, which wouldn't make sense here, but maybe it
had an older meaning of itinerant, or passing through a town?
That would make him a temporary resident of the town?

Also "Nina" looks to me like Nicha ("ch" = the Cyrillic X).
