For those interested in the history of the Jews of Belarus, I
wish to recommend the book "Pinskiye Yevrei, 1939-1944 gg."
by Ye. Rozenblat and I. Yelenskaya, both of the Brest State
University. The book was published by the Brest State University
in 1997. It contains many documents, references to archival
materials, lists of ghetto inhabitants, list of Pinsk Jews by
professions, other demographic information, photographs,
and photocopies of press articles. It's a fascinating reading.

Can anyone can help with a possible year of the photo on ViewMate #175?
I believe it may have been taken in Voloschisk.

Re: 3 SREBNIK (SILVERMAN) brothers from Vilna, Lithuania #general

Bernie Hirsch <bernie06@...>
 

Hi again,

I forget to mention in my previous post some additional data on Abraham's
wife, Ida SREBNIK. I have also her 2 sisters' names, and those three
sisters are all >from Vilna, Lithuania. Ida was born 7 MAR 1889 in Vilna,
Lithuania. Gertrude, her younger sister was born 5 JUL 1892/7 also in
Vilna, Lithuania. Those two both died in New Orleans. A 3rd sister
Shirley SREBNIK, went to New York, where she married and died.

These three sisters were first cousins to the three brothers mentioned in
my previous post. I have since found the Social Security record for the
sister, Gertrude, so I should soon have her parents' names. Her father,
then, would have been the brother to Jacob SREBNIK, father of Abraham.

http://here.at/berniehirsch/famtree

Is there some way now that I have this "footprint" on SREBNIK family in
VILNA to do research on the other side of the pond? I hesitate to start
looking at VILNA vital records in LDS, since I do not read Cyrillic. Is
there an index somewhere similar to JRI Poland?

Thanks and kind regards,
Bernie Hirsch bernie06@sprynet.com Dallas, Texas USA

He immigrated to New York City in the early 1900s, and then moved south,
first to Shreveport, Louisiana, and then to New Orleans, where he died
on 16 July 1973.

I have version 6 of Reunion on my Mac.
Has anyone had experience with version 7?
I'm reluctant to upgrade again unless it is a significant improvement.
Thank you for any input.

Adoption records in NY #general

Jeff Solotoroff <jeffro1165@...>
 

Greetings,

I'm doing genealogical research on my mother's family,
who lived in New York City. My mother and her sisters
were placed for adoption in the early 1940's. Is
anyone familiar with the procedures for obtaining
adoption records >from this time -- or whether they're
available at all?

Many thanks,
Jeff Solotoroff

Notations on 1920 Census Form #general

Morton Cohen <cohenme@...>
 

In looking at the 1920 Census images for Bayonne NJ, Hudson County
available on line at Ancestry
I see that there are hand written 3 digit numbers that appear in the
right hand margin of some lines. The numbers seem to be some kind of
coding since they are not sequential and some numbers repeat. Examples
are 999, 757, 791, etc.
Can anyone on the list shed any light on these numbers?

Does anybody have any further information about Andre CITROEN's family
history or know how I can contact any of his descendants?
As an additional information to what Anne Lifshitz-Krams answered last
12 december, concerning Jacques Wogelsinger, I want to add that this latter
wrote a book telling Andre Citroen's story, through archives and
testimonies :

Author : Jacques Wolgensinger

Thanks, Renee Steinig for the lovely post in support of they NYBC.

Aaron Lansky was the recipient of the MacArthur 'genius' award for this
wonderful volunteer effort. I am sure that once these books are digitized
(along with the Yizkor books) we will be finding authors who may have been
members of our families that were unbeknownst to us before--and also be
given the opportunity to own their writings as well.

New York City Registered Voters #general

Al Wirtzbaum <nycityal@...>
 

I received a note asking me where in the NYPL are the voter registration
lists? What are the identifying numbers for the microfilm rolls? What
span of years are included? and suggesting that I may want to post the
answer to the group.

The Science & Business Library, Madison Avenue between 34th and 35th
Street has the information in book form for the period 1955-1969. The
Call No. is *SYA+ (New York (City), Record Office, City record
supplement, Registry of voters).

The Humanities-Hist&Genealogy section of the New York Public Library
Main Branch at 5th Avenue and 42nd Street has the information on
microfilm for the years 1884, 1889-1890, 1898-1899, and 1904-1954. The
Call No. is *ZAN-G430.
