Hamburg Indirect Lists #general

Jackye Sullins <jackye@...>
 

I have relatives who left Lithuania and settled in England between
1875-1890. IF they left >from Hamburg and always intended to remain in
England, would they be listed on any of the Hamburg indexes (Indirect)?
In other words, the lists were done in Hamburg for people making a stop
*before* continuing on to the U.S. *but* would this index also include
those getting off in England?

TIA

Jewish cemeteries in Chicago abt. 1905 #general

Jfpol <jfpol@...>
 

I am researching an ancestor who died in 1905 and was said to be buried
in Chicago. I found a website with some addresses of Jewish cemeteries,
but have gotten some of the letters returned. I wonder if someone could
pass along the phone numbers and/or addresses of any Jewish cemeteries I
might try. (Westlawn kindly replied to me and said they were established
in 1938--too late.)

Sincerely, Joan Pollak, Merion, Pa.

Notes from Hsig #hungary

Louis Schonfeld <Lmagyar@...>
 

Dear Hsiggers,

We have had a good response to our survey of Hungarian speaking subscribers
and of those who live in countries other than
the United States and Canada. The survey concludes in about ten days, and I
would like to hear >from all of you
who are at least conversant in Hungarian and of those who live outside North
America. These are two separate surveys combined only for the sake of
convenience. No individual information will be posted, only the tabulated
numbers will appear on this internal H-sig survey.

Another request: there are several outstanding projects and voluntary
assignments that have been undertaken by individuals and groups within Hsig.
Please e-mail me privately with an update as to the status of your project
and a reasonably fair estimate of when you think the work will be complete.

There has only been two responses to my posting about the Hungarian Research
Foundation. Please don't hesitate to comment or make suggestions.

Finally, it has been several months since I informed the group as to the
number of subscribers on H-sig. It took a while for us to overcome the 500
member hurdle, but we did it, and now we currently have 505 subscribers. In
a list such as ours, both the quality and the number of participants are
significant. The reason for the former should be obvious - a core group of
knowledgeable members are important in order to make useful and accurate
suggestions to beginning researchers, and the latter is important since the
greater number of participants increase the statistical probability of
making family "matches".


Best wishes

Emanuel equals Mano #hungary

cpspier <cpspier@...>
 

To all of you who replied (and who were unanimous in your opinion that the
two names were equivalent) Thank You! We are one step closer to linking
three family lines. I tried to answer you all individually, but am afraid
I wiped one or two inadvertently, for which I apologize... :-(

Name "Gitomerck"??? #general

Deborah Sterling
 

I recently received the death certificate of my great-great grandmother.
Given name maybe Ruth, or Rochel,, or Rucha.
Maiden name >from a hand written (not documented) family tree >from a
deceased relative:
ZHETONOVSKY.
Her married name was VOSKOV, in the USA it changed to WOSKOFF.
On the death certificate, on the column for father, name is "Gitomerck".

Does this make any sense to anyone?
Is it just a poor rendition of a name that was forgotten?
Does this look at all like a given name or surname?
(Maiden name up to now had been probably ZHETONOVSKY).

The family's last residence before leaving for the USA was Boslov, Ukraine?

thanks for any help.
