I need advice in my research #belarus

Gary Dickman <garyd@...>
 

During last several years I tried to find my family roots without big
success.

I have Family Tree Maker program and a tree with more than 400
individuals, but with limited data on my grand grandparents and only
names of grand grand grandfathers. Exceptions are Pinchasik and
Rabuhin lines, where I have a tree done by my grandfather, Vladimir
Pinchasik.

Any information I have was collected >from my relatives leaving in
Russia, Israel and USA. Mostly this information is about living
individuals, not back in time.

I tried Family Tree Maker search engines but didn't filter something
interesting.

I built a Web page
(http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/d/i/c/Gary-Dickman/index.html) on
the Family Tree Maker account with my interests of research. No even
single e-mail was received >from other researchers during two years the
page exists.

Twice I sent requests to Minsk archive and Belarus Embassy in Israel
for records on Gregory Dickman and Shmuil Aizenberg and received an
answer that no records for requested years exist because all records are
being destroyed after 75-100 years.

Through a relative of mine in Russia I sent to Gitomir (Ukraine)
archive a request on Zinovy Pinchasik records and he had no answer.

As an owner of Family Tree Maker I had one free assessment >from GRA
(Genealogy Research Associates, Inc.). I used it to request a place of
birth of Gregory Dickman and the assessment said that I had a good
chances. If I'd like GRA to perform the searches suggested in this
assessment, I needed only to reply to the mail. I replied. No answer
arrived. After several e-mails and telephone calls I left it.

All my searching in the internet didn't have any results with one
exception: "Cheder list in Borisov" is possibly a shoot.

I heard that Mormons have records about Jews. I applied to the Mormon
center in Jerusalem and asked if I can receive their records per
request. I was told to go to genealogy link in their web site, but I
found only common information or books on Jewish history.

I searched in All Belarus DB , and didn't filter something interesting
on my family.

Now I don't know how to continue. How did you get the records?

Sincerely yours,
Gary Dickman

There really is no way to determine where to start. The easiest group of
records is the Blitzstein Bank, because the index is 3x5 cards which are
typewritten and in fairly good alphabetical order. I believe I forgot to
mention that you would look for the name of the immigrant/passenger in the
various indices. Always remember the variations of spellings of the names,
so when looking at the Blitzstein index, for example, always look "fore" and
"aft" (so to speak).

Reb Moshe YERUSHALMI-18th cent. Poland? #general

yoni ben-ari <mrtfuzot@...>
 

Does anyone have personal knowledge of a Jewish traveller, of the above
name, most likely >from Poland who went to Palestine during the second half
of the 18th century and on his return to Europe wrote a guide book called
"Sefer Yedei Moshe" (book of the hands of Moses).

He got the family name presumably after returning to Europe and being
called YERUSHALMI due to his having travelled to Jerusalem.

The book was self published in 1769 in Amsterdam and several times since.

I am researching Charlotte Maud BARNATO, born c 1850, died 11th July
1911 in London. She was married to Henry Barnato, (brother of Barney).
I am particularly anxious to learn her maiden name, the date of her
marriage and whether Henry had a previous wife. I would be grateful for
any information on the family.

Thanks.

HIAS & Ethnic Bank Records-Philadelphia,PA #general

The Philadelphia HIAS records which were preserved were filmed by the
Mormons many years ago. Copies of the films were given to PJAC.
The films were sent to Salt Lake City with a restriction that the
films were not to be released to the local FHCs. In other words,
if you wanted to see the films of the HIAS records you had to come
to Philadelphia, PA or Salt Lake City, UT. Is this still true?
Snip.......

HIAS records:
- Arrivals to the port of Philadelphia - 1884-1921
- Indexes to Philadelphia port arrivals - 1884-1921
Passenger Arrival Records-Alphabetical - all "A's" together, etc.
Passenger Arrival Records-Chronological by Ship - By year - all
HIAS Naturalization Cards - c. 1910-1950 names in a particular year.
The Ethnic Bank records are:
Blitzstein Bank Index Cards and Books - June 1888-June 1902 & December
1903- December 1930.
Lipshutz or Peoples' Bank
Rosenbaum Bank - 1894-1927
Rosenbluth Bank - 1907-1926
I searched on my Family History Library Catalog CD, and all of the HIAS
records to which you refer are there. I also found all of the Immigrant
Bank Records or Passage Order Books that you listed, except for the
Rosenbluth Bank. All the HIAS records and Bank or Passage Order records are
on microfilms that can be ordered. (Too many to be listed here)

They can be found on the Place Search:
Pennsylvania,Philadelphia,Philadelphia - Emigration and Immigration; and
Pennsylvania,Philadelphia,Philadelphia - Naturalization and Citizenship.

There was also a film of "Card file of detainee immigrants 1914-1921" from
HIAS. Description:"Cards generally arranged alphabetically. Records are for
those generally arriving at Philadelphia who were detained by authorities
for various reasons. Information includes name, ship and date of arrival,
address of final destination, and reason held." FHL Film 1570326,item 2.

Also "Landing verification cards, 1907-1914" >from HIAS. "Includes arrival
information about immigrants >from various ports including New York,
Baltimore, Boston, Seattle, Philadelphia, and Vancouver. Immigrants were
probably Jewish whose final destination was Philadelphia." FHL Film
1570326, item 1.

I then did a similar "Place Search" at
http://www.familysearch.org/Search/searchcatalog.asp ,
the Family History Library online,and basically found the same information,
although I believe the CD is more up-to-date than the online catalog.

Selma, thank you for posting this information. I'm going to be busy at my
local FHC looking at some of these films. Unfortunately, I won't be at the
SLC seminar where I could look at all of them in a much shorter time.
