Polish civil rights #general

Aubrey Jacobus <marie@...>
 

I think it was in 1919, when all the minorities (Jews, Ukainians, and
others) got their civil rights in Poland

Has any looked at Voting Registers ?.

Dear Deborah,
My dad enter the US illegally in 1930. In 1936, he applied for a social
security card changing his birth date, place of birth and parents first
names. I had always been told that he had easily become a citizen in 1941
since my mother was American born. When I found his alien registration
card on microfilm at the NYPL I found that he did not start the process
until 1943 and did not recieve citizenship until 1948. I sent away not
only for a copy of his citizenship papers, but also for the declaration
of intent (unfortunatly it didn't give me the information I was looking
for). With his A.R. number I was wrote the INS, under the FOIA, requesting
a copy of his alien registration file. That request was sent to the
Justice Department >from whom I recieved a letter that the complete file
would be sent to me within 6 months. I'm still waiting (it's not yet
6 months). I understand >from a Jewishgen friend that those files contain
much useful genelogical information.

Hi

A few of us began to transliterate the 1915 Vilnius City Directory
a little while ago.
The initial transliteration is mostly done.
I am looking for those who may want to help proof read a section
so that it can be sent to the ALD.
If you would like to help please contact me at sman@uscom.com
You do not have to know russian, just be able to pronounce cyrillic.

Thanks

Re: records of closed burial and landsmanschaftn societies #general

Steven Garber <shgarber@...>
 

I called the Liquidations Bureau at the phone number provided and asked
if I could obtain info about the records of "burial societies". The woman
sounded a bit annoyed and said they didn't have any genealogical records
like that. She said all those records are donated to the YIVO Institute.
I took her word for it and I hope this saves others time and money. Or
did I get the wrong person (I don't think so)...

Here is a contact that may help people looking for records of closed
burial and landsmanschafften societies. Bruce Reisch and Carol Skydell
suggested this source 3 years ago--you can tell how far behind I am in
my research! I just called the office today, and they were very helpful
and patient, although they didn't find what I needed.

US Alien Registration Records #general

Leonard Markowitz <priluki@...>
 

I have contacted the INS on a number of occasions in an
effort to establish the maiden name of my maternal
grandmother. She and her children landed at Philadelphia
aboard the SS Merion on 06/23/1909. They then went to
live with the family of her eldest son in South Philadelphia.

For the next 28 years, she continued to live in Philadelphia,
was never naturalized and never even spoke English . The
INS has repeatedly indicated that they have no records of
her existence after she arrived in Philadelphia.

Naomi RODRIG -- MANDELKER researcher #general

David Priever <David_Priever@...>
 

Dear Fellow Jewishgenners,

Help!!!!!!!!!

I have tried everything possible to locate Naomi Rodrig, whose name is
listed in the Family Finder as doing research on the MANDELKER name. I am
looking into this family for Mrs. Esther Bandel of New York City. Her
mother was a MANDELKER and most of the siblings are believed to have
murdered during the Holocaust.

All messages I have sent to Ms. Rodrig have not bounced back, so I have no
inkling what is happening.

Thank you very much.

Sincerely,
David J. Priever

MODERATOR NOTE: Please respond priavtely.
