I was very suprised to see the surname Wulfow listed in some of the
Ciechanow lists. The only Wulfows I know are my fathers brothers and their
wives and children. My grandfather left Russia to avoid serving in the
Czar's army. This was prior to 1910. I know this date because my
grandfather's brother and his twin sons came for a visit and then went back.
This is the last we heard >from them. This greatuncle supposedly went back
because his wife did not wish to leave her belongings behind which she would
have had to done to emigrate.

Does anyone know why I might have found my surname in the lists located at
www.firstport.com/ciechanow/m1836-40.htm and what this means. I am
clueless.
Thanks for any help

Hi YT&V Group Members -
Take a look at the items offered in the new JewishGenMall - It may be just
what you're looking for. The message below was prepared by Susan King for
the benefit of all users of the site.
David Harris - moderator YT&V


Subject: Grand Opening of The JewishGenMall
Just in time for the holidays! WHEW!!!
After dedicating nearly a year to construct our newest offering,
JewishGen's persistent team of Mall managers is very pleased to announce
the grand opening of The JewishGen Mall on Monday Dec 4th, 2000.
We believe we have created a user friendly place for your holiday shopping.
Our mall managers have found books, software and videos of genealogical
interest to tempt you. In the new year we will constantly be adding new
products, so be certain to keep looking in.
We invite all of you to come on in and see the huge collection of the very
books, videos (under construction) and software some of you have been
asking about. The URL is:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgenmall
To avoid any misunderstandings, it will be helpful to know that the concept
behind launching the JewishGenMall is similar to that of any Museum Shop
you have visited. The intent is simply to generate additional revenue to

continue support of JewishGen projects and services that rely on
our operational budget.
The JewishGenMall will not compete with online "discounters" or other
publishers, or be competitive with the pricing of other e-tailers. We are
presenting another avenue for you to acquire products that will not only
benefit your research, but at the same time provide additional financial
resources for JewishGen.
Over the last few months, you have seen messages >from our Vice President of
Business and Corporate Development indicating that our operational budget
sometimes falls short of our projected needs. You'll also recall that the
operational budget supports all the mailing lists, websites and server
needs that carry the many databases. The JewishGenMall will be an enjoyable
way for you to continue to support JewishGen today and well into the future..
Today you will find no less than 500 products -- >from books to software to
videos -- that cover almost every area of research. And this is just the
beginning!
In honor of the launch, we are offering at special introductory prices on
some special items and Gift Certificates for the holidays. Make sure you
click on the 'Specials' button today... and look for similar specials each
time you log on to The JewishGen Mall in the future.
There are many exciting new developments on the drawing board for The
JewishGenMall in the future.
Our challenge to you today is simply this. If everyone of the 90,000
unique visitors to our website, the 45,000 submitters to the JGFF and the
15,000 subscribers to the mailing lists made at least one small purchase
every six months >from The JewishGenMall, you will be making a significant
contribution to helping JewishGen help you in your research!
Help us make it happen! Go now to http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgenmall/
Please join with us today to celebrate the Grand Opening of The
JewishGenMall and say thanks to the extraordinary volunteer effort of Sandy
and Don Hirschhorn, John Berman and Carol Skydell.

PASSPORTS IN THE 1800'S/EARLY 1900'S #lodz #poland

John & Diana Terry <jterry@...>
 

Dear Researchers

My Ancestors travelled >from various parts of Poland during the late 1800's
and early 1900's and after searching many databases during the past Years, I
have not managed to find any sign of my Family. I am wondering whether
they had changed their names for security reasons during their travels and
suspect that this would have been quite easy to arrange, if Polish Jews,
during that era, were not required to travel with Passports.

Does anyone have any information on when Passports became the normal
documentation for travel across Europe.

Please respond privately to this question.

Re: Courland Estates #courland #latvia

Martha:
Guess I will need to do some more research.

My ggrandfather SEEMEL, Christ b. 1864 left Shoenburg, Courland circa. 1892,
leaving behind 2 small children and a pregnant wife, LAPINSKI, Maglena
b.1862. They rejoined and settled in Bagley Michigan. Family lore is that he
left property behind, but his oldest daughter, Lucy dissuaded family members
from any inquiry in the 1930's.
Since he spoke 5 languages, was well versed in politics, arts, music and the
great works, it is presumed he lived privileged life in Courland. (not so in
the US, as the family barely survived on a small dirt farm) They were
Catholic.

Someone asked about a Jewish "vidimosti". I remember
that in Tsarist Russia, newspapers were published in each province
called something like Vedemosti Gubernski; so the word might
mean something like "newspaper", "report", or "gazette", and
might be the name of a Russian Jewish newspaper.

The above merely confuses the issue. The similarity of the words is
only superficial; the respective first syllables of "vidimost'"
(appearance) and "vedomost'", note spelling, (gazette) are >from
different roots; the question was about "vidimost'", and the context
was "Jewish appearance".

"Vedomost' Gubern'skaya" would indeed mean Provincial Gazette.

For the record, there is no such word as "vedemost'".

Database Manager #general

Jacob D. Goldstein <jake@...>
 

Fellow JewishGenners,

I would very much appreciate any advice concerning a Windows-based database
manager for my family tree ( > 10,000 members ). I'd like to have

1. Canonical Hebrew - Civil (Extended Gregorian) calendar translation
2. Customizable fields
3. The ability to incrementally (and possibly interactively) update the
database when a family member hands me a file that includes
modifications/additions made in their copy of the database
4. An extended character set that includes all European alphabets (Spanish,
German, French, Slavic) and the Hebrew alphabet (if at all possible)
5. A display in which there are icons that indicate the presence/absence of
*all* data items for an individual

Any advice or comments ("no such thing available," for example) would be
greatly appreciated.

book of poetry published (USA) in Yiddish in 1958. His name was B.J.
BIALOSTOTZKY the book is called "Poem To Poem". The copy of the book I
have is inscribed, in Yiddish, by the author to my father. It says, "To my
very good friend Joseph". I do not read Yiddish but a friend translated it
for me. I was told that he came >from Nevel/Vitebsk (Belarus/Russia) the

have is inscribed, in Yiddish, by the author to my father. It says, "To my
very good friend Joseph". I do not read Yiddish but a friend translated it
for me. I was told that he came >from Nevel/Vitebsk (Belarus/Russia) the
same town and Gubernia my father is from.

Re: Need help identifying an Army uniform and translation from Yiddish. #general

Tomek Liniecki <liniecki@...>
 

I have just placed an old postcard Viewmate
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ (VM141 /142) The picture (VM141)
shows four Jewish workers sitting by sewing machines and two Army
officers. Apparently one or more of the Jewish workers was my
grandfather's brother. I believe the photo was taken in Poland before
WWII but I can not identify the uniforms the officers are wearing. Is
there someone out there in JewishGen land that know what officers would
have worn these uniforms?
The uniforms are pre-war Polish, field type training uniforms. The fellow
at right is captain, probably of cavalry or horse-driven artillery. Seems,
that picture was taken in early thirties.

Regards,
Tomek

Re: "pieplate" style photographs #general

We have a small oval "pie-plate" (though I never knew that was what it was
called) of my grandmother, apparently taken at the same time as a family
photo, 1901-02 in NYC (probably lower Manhattan).

From: Toby Brief <tbrief@hotmail.com>
Subject: "pieplate" style photographs

Can anyone tell methe name of the style and the span of time during which
"pieplate" photographs were produced?Also, were these type of photos done
in Eastern Europe (Ukraine or Poland)as well as in the US? The photos are
sepia toned and mounted on a convex metal plate.They are round although I
have seen one that is oblong. They are formally posed.
Thanks
