Deear Jewishgenners (once again),

Seems I may soon be able to answer my own question:
while doing some work-related Web surfing on
Immigration Canada's site, I came upon the following
link for the Canadian National Archives:

http://www.archives.ca/exec/naweb.dll?fs&;02&e&top&0

I haven't gotten to explore the page yet fully, but it
looks like a) certain Canadian records are available
online, and b) there is an informational section
devoted to geneaological research for those with
Canadian ties.
In general, I've found the Canadian government to be
very helpful, but if anyone down the line has specific
experience in using the information obtained on this
page, I'd love to hear about it, particularly anything
you may find out that relates to Canadian immigration
or citizenship records.

Some organizations, whether due to their conservative outlook, or good
employer-employee relations, are fortunate in having on their staff a
person or persons who are their "institutional memory". Perhaps The
Times is one of these organizations. I suggest you contact The Times,
and inquire if they have available such a person.

You might also inquire if they have indices of stories published during
the critical time period, which might help you narrow your search, or
even better, lead you to the goal you seek.

You might also engage a solicitor to learn if research into court
records, which in the USA are sometimes indexed by name of counsel
appearing for the parties, are indexed in like manner in the UK.


No need for all of that. The Times newspaper has a very detailed Index
of almost everything it prints. The Index has been in existence since
the 1790s. The Index is printed but certain periods are on microfilm as
are copies of the newspaper itself.

Social Security Application Question #general

Vincent Delgato
 

Hello...

I am sure this question has been asked in the past so forgive me for asking
again. I just received the Social Security Application for a family member
and it is a small, simple application with no great information on it. It
was issued in 1940 and was the first application made out by him. Since he
was born in Russia, I had hoped for more requirements to prove citizenship.
How did the Social Security admin. know he was a citizen? Is there
something else I should had received?

I am very new to Russian/Jewish research, so I appreciate any info you
might be able to supply me with.

Thank you so much.

My mtDNA revealed a Bulgarian/Turk/Karelian origin #dna

My mtDNA revealed a Bulgarian/Turk/Karelian origin. Would this mean that
Levantine Jewish men married women of Anatolia,Bulgaria (Thrace) or Karelia,
a small country in and near Finland in medieval times? Anyone else have this
mtDNA in Ashkenazim origin?

Re: Wilhelm Stieda #courland #latvia

max michelson <maxmich@...>
 

In answer to Akira Hashimoto inquiry, Wilhelm Stieda was not Jewish.
Wilhelm is
not a Jewish name (as used at that time). He most likely was a Baltic
(ethnic) German.

Brennson's book, Die Aerzte Kurlands, (the 1929 edition), was reissued in
Germany in 1972 in Hannover-Dohren: v. Hirschheydt. The book is available
at the New York Public Library and at the Library of Congress in Washington,
DC. Brennson listed all the doctors in Kurland regardless of their
ethnicity or religion. The 1929 edition contains all the doctors listed in
the previous edition plus the newest members of the profession.

Dear Sir

I saw your "Courland Research". Especially, I was interested in "The
Doctorsof Courland 1825- 1900". According to your description, the author
I.Brennsohn listed 125 doctors with Jewish connections. Does that mean all
the doctors listed here are with Jewish connections, or of that only 125
doctors are with Jewish connections?
You probably know that I. Brennsohn published a book "Die Aerzte
Kurlands"(Verlag von Ernst Plates, Riga) in 1929 again (but I don$B!G(Bt have
it). Do you know whether the book of 1929 also deals with the doctors with
Jewish connections in Courland? The reason why I am interested in this
book is that I am looking for a doctor named Wilhelm Stieda(1875-1920) whose
biography is written there (I have a photocopy of this page). I$B!G(Bm not
sure
that he has a Jewish origin. At least for me, he is a mysterious person.
He visited Japan probably in 1906, saw several psychiatiric hospitals, and
reported Japanese psychiatry in German medical journal (Centralblatt fur
Nervenheilkunde und Psychiatrie 29: 514-522, 1906). Although he seemed to
be a "Reservearzt auf den russischen japanischen Kriegsschauplatz", his
purpose to visit Japan is not clear. Do you have more information about
Wilhelm
Stieda ?
