Re: Prussian town - Schoking/Schothing #general

Sally Hohensee <hohensees@...>
 

Gary,
Schokingen, near Stuttgart, is definitely not in the region of Prussia.
Prussia is in the north-eastern part of Germany. I believe it would
include part of what's now Poland.
Sorry I could not find anything else. Good luck!

More Numbers #general

Len Pincus <lennyp@...>
 

Hi ,
To clarify the numbers some people are worried about I submit the following:

The numbers shown in the Social Security Death Index are ZIP numbers not
addresses.

The numbers cited in reference to finding California cities are a code used
to indicate a particular county. Every county in California has a different
number and I think you can find a listing of these numbers at a local
Family History Center.

Hope this helps.

Bruce Reisch <bir1@...>
 

My dear friend Isak Shteyn, a Bukowina native, was kind enough to
translate three chapters >from Hugo Gold's Geschichte der Juden in der
Bukowina / History of the Jews in the Bukowina. In addition, he
translated the table of contents for both volumes and the results are
now posted at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Bukowinabook/bukowina.html

>from the Table of Contents, you can link to all of the posted
chapters, now numbering a total of 10. Look for Isak's new additions
to the collection for the towns of Solka, Storozynetz (Isak's home
town), and Wiznitz. The chapter on Sereth will be posted in the near
future. Many thanks go to the Yizkor Book Team for their superb help
in posting these translations on the web.

Irving Berlin was born Izak Beilin. Some of the family kept the original
surname, others use BALINE/ BERLIN. There is an unproven connection to my
maternal family. Please contact me privately for further information and

My thanks to Alan Wachtel for deciphering all the column headings on the
1906 passenger manifest. Can anyone share a Website or other source that
identifies the headings on other versions of the passenger manifest?

Re: unreadable passenger list #general

Definitely, someone just asked me to look up an l882 passenger
listing that they had received >from NARA which was unreadable.
I found it at the NYPL in New York on Fifth Avenue and the copy
I made was very readable.

Myra Davis asks if it is possible to obtain a better quality copy of a
passenger list that she was able to get >from NARA. I have no personal
experience with this, but I have been assured that LDS FHL personnel in
Salt Lake City can work wonders when making copies >from unreadable films.
Often, it is said, a document that is completely unreadable on microfilm
prejection will produce copies of usable quality. Unlike NARA personnel,
the FHL workers' primary job is to help genealogists, and this may have
something to do with the difference. In any case, assuming the FHL owns
the passenger list film in question, it's worth trying to order a copy
from them.

Re: BERGSTEIN and "addresses" in jewishgen digest: January 31, 2001 #general

Dorothy Auerbach Rivers <dotvic@gilanet.com> recently posted a query
on BERGSTEIN. She mentioned that she had gotten the following data >from a
Social Security list:
<< David BERGSTEIN, b. 30 April, 1893; d. July 1986; last address
was 11203 Brooklyn, Kings, NY: Jacob BERGSTEIN, b. 18 Feb. 1889; d. Dec.
1970; last address was 11214 Brooklyn, Kings, NY: Max BERGSTEIN, b. 2
Feb. 1885; d. June 1975; last address was 10467 Bronx, Bronx, NY: Morris
BERGSTEIN, b. 28 Feb. 1881; d. Nov. 1969; last address was 10456 Bronx,
Bronx, NY.>>
However, she didn't understand why there is a street number but
no street name.
I have an answer for her -- the number listed is *not* a street
number, but rather the zip code for the area of Brooklyn or the Bronx where
the person last resided or where the Social Security Check was sent. To
find each specific person's actual address try (a) searching a contemporary
telephone book (i.e., a circa 1968 Bronx telephone book for Morris
Bergstein who died in 1969, or (b) requesting a death certificate, if
possible (In NYC after the 1940's, this is not always possible unless one
is a close relative, though in other areas of the country it is possible).
