Family tree questions #general

Shira Honig <shonig@...>
 

Hi Genners,

I'm making an accompanying log for my family tree that lists all my
family's names in aphabetical order, and I'm wondering how you would
list a woman's name when she's been married more than once. I'm
guessing I would list her under her current surname and then key in both
her previous surnames, so it would look like this:

Brown, Sally (nee Smith, nee Jones) (1950 - ).

Is this a good guess?

TIA,

Shira Honig

Re: Polish equivalent of Smith #general

Alexander Sharon <a.sharon@...>
 

Abe,

Actually, equivalent of "blacksmith" in Polish is Kowalski, an extremly
popular Polish surname.

Other blacksmith alternatives: Kowal, Kowalik,Kowalczuk, Kowalczyk, and east
Polish/Russian border variations: Kuzniets, Kuzniecow, and so on.
Tinsmith: Blacharz, Blacharczyk
Silversmith: Srebnik, Srebrenik (Silberstein, Silwer, Silver)

They could also have adopted name of village of their origin: Kowalowice,
Kowalo'w, Kowalik, Kowalin.

One can go on wth the smith variations and speculations as >from what and/or
from where original name could be tranaslated or adopted. Possibilities and
alternatives are virtually limitless.

Hope that this will not bring more confusion.

A branch of our my mother's family,originally >from Poland,was given the
name
Smith
or perhaps opted for it at Ellis Island.
They know it was very difficult to pronounce
but have no idea how it sounded..
One theory is that it may have meant " tinsmith" or "metal worker" in
Polish .
Could that have been " ZIELAZO " or something close to that ?
Another chance is that it actually sounded like SMITH,in which case,what
are
some of the Polish words or names to fit that possibility ?

They know that siblings of the senior David Smith who went to Canada did
not
use
the Smith name,but they lost contact over 75 years ago.

Not much to go on,but always worth an honest try. Abe Nutkis

New York City Immigrants & Research Fees #general

The Kendrick's <kendrickkreation@...>
 

Hi!

My message will cover two items . . .

First, for those of you interested (I have no financial interest in the company)
keep an eye on the Ancestry website in the near future. It appears that upcoming
databases will include;
New York City Immigrants (Austria, Galacia, Poland), 1890.
http://www.ancestry.com

The last item I have is a question that I would respectively request that you
respond to privately. For any of you who have hired someone within the U.S. to do
genealogy research could you please tell me how much you might have paid an hour?
I am trying to come up with a "fair market" average and your responses would be
most appreciated. Again, please reply in private.

Thank you all for your time.

How about getting reciprocal "look ups" if you know someone in the

Russian prison records? #general

David Joseph Colman <dybk@...>
 

There is a story in my family that my great grandfather, Shmuel
Yeshiyahu CHERNIAK, was imprisoned by the communists shortly after the
overthrow of the czar. Supposedly he had been a pharmacist "in the
czar's court" and somehow the communists took offence to his ties to the
ruling class. (Yes, I know these stories are often heavily imbellished
if even remotely true)

Is there any method to search for Russian records regarding prison terms
or crimes in the early 1900's?

Adoption #general

Anita R Shaw <ps44@...>
 

A son was born to my unmarried mother Ruchel/Rojza SOBOWINSKI or
SOBAWINSKI in Lodz in 1921 or 1922, and given to an aunt Pessa
Sobawinski/Sobowinski (maiden name STRAWSZYNSKI) who adopted out the
child to a wealthy soap manufacturer in Lodz or vicinity. The child may
have been registered to any of the above names or to my mother's mother
Faiga Brucha Sobowinski. Would anyone have any information about this
baby son of my mother. My mother died in 1981 in the United States, and
I am seeking my half brother.
