ATT: Boston area genealogists. Need Driving directions to Mass. Registry of Vital Records #general

Jacqueline Fineblit <jackief@...>
 

I plan to visit the Massachusetts Registry of Vital Records for research. I
have been told that the Bureau has relocated to 150 Mt. Vernon, St.,
Dorchester. I am unfamiliar with that area and need good driving directions
to get there. I understand that the traffic patterns are difficult because
of the Big Dig. Is there anyway of skirting the Boston area to get to the
Registry. I called twice for directions (long distance >from Florida) was
put on hold for over ten minutes, then disconnected. Maps of Boston do no
good right now as the construction has changed so much!

Any other useful suggestions on how to handle research here? I need the
vital records for most of my mother's and father's family who all lived in
Massachusetts, mostly around the Boston area.

Thanks for any help >from the Mass. genealogists!!

Hello all,

A friend sent me the following URL:

http://www.interment.net/

It's a small but searchable database of burial records and tombstone
inscriptions. There are online records >from over 2,000 cemeteries all
over the world. That said, a search for Cohen showed only 17 entries!
However if one of those 17 is your long lost mystery person, it's
definitely worth the effort.

Dear Genners

I read the report fo Kaunas Archivist Vitalija Girchyte with my mouth open
waiting to read that many of these Rabbi's lists have been found, translated and collated and hoping that I would be able to find some of my Lithuanian ancestors on them ......but no mention of this was made.

Have they been translated. collated, and are they available to us? Please
can someone explain further. Thanks.

Rica B Goldberg, Manchester, England.

Still researching

1) KAMINSKY (KAMENSHCHIK) >from Yanova ( Jonava) nr Kovno, Lithuania
2) DIAMOND (possibly DIMONT or DIAMONT) >from Kovno, Lithuania; 3) Newman, Emannuel, Rachel & Esther LEVY and their parents Chana & Yehuda LEV >from KROSNIEWICE in Poland; 4) Isaac & Rebecca COHEN - a tailor and tailoress >from Poland; 5) Chaim and Rebecca ESTRY - a glazier >from Poland; 6) GOLDBERG (possibly SCHELENGER or in Yiddish SCHLUZITSIL) >from Kovno, Lithuania; 7) BERLINSKY >from ???

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Success with the ALD! #lithuania

Marjorie Rosenfeld <marjorierosenfeld@...>
 

Since joining JewishGen a couple of years ago, I've made great strides in
finding out about family. For instance, I can now trace my maternal
grandfather's lineage all the way back to the middle of the 18th century.
Unfortunately, I've made much less progress in the case of my maternal
grandmother, Annie Udelson, and her father, Isaac Udelson.

Though searching JewishGen's All-Lithuania Database for the surname
UDELSON/YUDELSON/JUDELSON has usually been a "ho-hum" exercise, a couple of
days ago (inspired by Judy Baston's message re updates to the ALD), I
decided to give it another try. Bingo! What should I find but
"IUDELZON Itsyk," owner of three pieces of real estate in 1903.

This isn't my great grandfather Isaac Udelson, who immigrated to America
long before 1903. Too, the ALD's "Itsyk Iudelzon" was >from a town called
Akmene, not "Naishtat," where we were told our Udelson relatives came from.
And therein lies a mystery. There were 3 shtetls in Lithuania known as
"Naishtat" ("New Town"). Some checking with the Shtetl Seeker revealed that Akmene lies within 35-65 miles of all of these: Kudirkos Naumiestis,
Zemaiciu Naumiestis, and Naujamiestis Panevyzas.

So do I know which "Naishtat" the family came from? No, not yet. But I've
heard of another Udelson family >from Kudirkos Naumiestis and one also from
the Naujamiestis Panevyzas area. Folks, I'm zeroing in! Sooner or later,
I'll know all--and it will be thanks to the ALD. When those Russian
Revision List records >from every place in Lithuania get translated, the ALD
will have the listing for my great grandfather's household and then I'll
really know it all (or know it "ald")!

As for Itsyk Iudelzon >from Akmene, he's family and I know it in MY blood!
He's bound to have been at least a cousin of Great Grandfather Isaac
Udelson's. Even though Itsyk owned only 3 properties in that big piece of
real estate known as Lithuania, I still wouldn't turn my nose up.

Hey, isn't this a great project? And what about all those wonderful
volunteers?!

Best--

SADEK (SADJEK), HERSCHENHORN, SOLOMON, GLASSMAN #general

spri0037 <spri0037@...>
 

I am a bit new at this.

I have been researching my maternal grandparents SADEK and HERSCHENHORN
(OREN), and have found some information, mostly about my grandmother
(SADEK), who lived with my family growing up and was my third parent.
Her family is >from Ciechanow, Poland.

However, most of the missing information is about my grandfather, who
came to the U.S. with his brother and parents >from Kishnev
(Romania/Moldava), supposedly right after the 1903 pogrom. He died when
my mom was 5 years old (in 1926). Other than his death certificate from
the Albany Vital Records department, I have been unable to get anymore
information on when he and his family got here, ship, etc.

Does anyone have any contacts in Kishinev, Albany New York or Catskill New
York? I live in Minnesota (a long way to search in New York), and don't
have the ability financially to get out there to research records. Could
anyone help me with this?

Lilli Sprintz

P.S.- it has been a joy reading everyones' posts for the past several days
and seeing the love and support Jews all over the world are giving each
other, doing their genealogical work. Thank you.

The FHL Catalogue is set to work with Explorer version 4.0+. The specs are
on the disk. I have Explorer 4.0+ (can't tell which version) and the
catalogue works. You may want to phone 1-800-346-6044 which is the FHL
Support phone number and ask them for help. There may be a simple solution.
