Has anyone had a look at the LDS films of the Census of the Taxable
Population of Hungary 1828, LDS films #622941 to #623771? What sort of
information does it have?

Re: Wood Dealers in Ulanow, Poland #general

Alexander Sharon <a.sharon@...>
 

Dorothy,

Just a word of clarification regarding 1891 Galicia Business Directory.
Where in this directory for town Ulanow "occupation" column indicates "Wood
Dealers" this refers to a singular 'wood dealer', not a company.

This Business Directory same as a modern "Yellow Pages" or any other
directory, lists people surnames under the "occupation" headings, e.g..
"medical doctors", "midwives", "haberdashers", "wood dealers", and so on,
in a plural form. It does not indicate that Mr. Josef Karpf of Ulanow run
a company (registered or not) dealing with the wood products, by merely
states his occupation. He had probably a one horse outfit which has been
selling a chopped wood as a fuel to the local dwellers.

If your ggfather was a forester, engaged in a very respectful profession,
he was most probably employed by the landowners in Ulanow vicinity or by
the Austrian Government supervising the crown lands properties. Polish
count Wlodzimierz Czartoryjski was an owner of the majority of the forests
(Las Glinianka) and other lands in this region. If some did employ your ggf
as a forester, it was most probably the Count.

Good luck with your search

I have an 1891 Business Directory with three wood dealers listed. I would
like to know if there is a way of learning the names of men employed by
these companies.My great-grandfather was a forester and was killed on the
job in 1894.

His name was Simon BERGSTEIN and he left a widow and seven children.
Any help I can get would be most appreciated.

Can someone please tell me what profession knygrisys is? There's a hook
over the first s. I have a translation "backbinder", but that doesn't
really help! Does it mean the back of a book, or backs of people, or
something else entirely?

Thanks!

Dear Fellow Researchers,

I find it extremely difficult to believe that there are more than 350
people out there in cyberspace who are benefitting >from the
information posted on this list but who cannot afford a tiny
contribution of $10.

Louis, Marc, and others contribute huge amounts of time and money to
keep our organization going. Compared to any other SIG dues, our
group is a fantastic bargain. How can we expect our partner Jewish
genealogy organizations to take us seriously if we don't even support
our own SIG?

C'mon people, get out your checkbooks! Stop procrastinating! =20
No more excuses--JUST DO IT!

Re: NYC death certificates #general

Hi!

Sally Bruckheimer wrote that NYC death certificates are not available
at the FHL. They are now, up to 1949. I used them this summer in
Salt Lake City. The numbers start with a "2" (therefore, very new)

And better yet, they include a second page not usually found at the
City archives which gives the name and relationship of the person
who dealt with the undertaker!

child traveling alone #general

Lilli Sprintz <spri0037@...>
 

Mimi Katz talked about her relative, a young boy traveling alone on a ship.

Yes, my maternal grandmother, Bubbie Mollie, came to the U.S. at age 17.
She traveled alone on a ship >from Bremen, to the U.S. Looks like it took
several weeks. She was going to catch up with her father, who had come
earlier to check out the territory, I assume, and when he gave the
all-clear sign (and probably sent them money as well), she was the next one
to come. Don't know why she traveled alone, except perhaps for the issue
of money to travel. Her mother and rest of her siblings came later...I
believe after WWI ended. I've always been amazed how my grandmother did
that, the traveling alone...I've heard, through another friend who has done
research, that sometimes children, and sometimes females, were molested on
ships. How did she protect herself?

Allan Jordan said,

"As I understood the various regulations, children traveling alone were
not permitted to enter the United States without a relative, guardian or
alike there to receive them."

I don't know for whom, and when and where it was true. But as I
mentioned earlier, my maternal grandmother came on her own at age 17.
However, it did state on the passenger list that she was planning to
meet up with her father, and gave the address where he was living at
that time. This was Baltimore, Maryland (USA) port, year 1913.
