like to get it translated. However, I am reluctant to post this document on
ViewMate. Would someone be willing to help me with this. I can send a jpeg

Please respond directly to me. Thanks.

attn owners of the 1910 NY census CD-ROM #ukraine

carol skydell <cwskydell@...>
 

Based on the questions we are seeing about how to find the Enumeration
District to access the census page, you don't need it if you are using the
1910 NY state or NYcity census CD-ROM purchased in the JewishGenMall.

The Heritage Quest CD gives you the exact NARA film to look at, including
the page and part. That assumes that you are close to either NARA
in Washington D.C. or one of the Regional Archive branches, but of course
that is not always the case.<g>

Avotaynu has come to the rescue. To determine which film to order >from any
one of the thousands of Family History Centers around the world, go
to http://www.avotaynu.com/1910censusny.htm to see how to convert the NARA
REEL to the FHL film number.

For example: My own SKIDELSKY search reported reel 1039 (in the T624
series of NARA films) Part 1 Page 183 A for Morris Skidelskiy

I have my choice of going to a nearby Regional Archive here in southern
California and looking at reel #1039 and finding the correct page and part,
or ordering the film >from a local FHC.

Using the Avotaynu site noted above all I do is look up reel #1039 and find
that I need to order film # 1375052

Hope this helps everybody make effective use of the CD.

P.S. the page #s are **stamped** on the heading of the census page....not
handwritten in the upper right hand corner, those are NOT page numbers no
matter what the volunteer at the regional archives tried to tell me <grin>

New York City Death Indexes #general

Andee <msscuba@...>
 

Dear Jenners:

My cousin and I are butting our heads against stone walls. We are
trying to find the date of death for two relatives. They probably died
in the 1920's. We have been going round and round, everytime we think
we are on the right path, it falls through... Are there indexes in New
York City which lists alphabetically the deaths by year? and how would
we find these?

Also, the 1925 Census Records for the Manhattan State Hospital lists the
physicians, nurses, attendants, cooks, housekeepers, teachers, etc.....
no patients at all. Where were all the patients? Were they just not
listed. We have found patients listed on other census' as inmates or
patients. We do not know where to turn.

Any and all information, suggestions, etc. on the above questions would
be greatly appreciated!

Thanks to all and Happy New Year!

MODERATOR NOTE: The JewishGen InfoFile "New York City Birth, Marriage and
Death Records" at <http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/nycv-lds.txt> has
answers to the first part of your question. In general, it's worth checking
the InfoFiles to see if one applies to your question. A lot of work has
gone into compiling these resources, and it would be a shame to see all that
work go to waste!

A man named Maier BRODA was born in Zarki, Poland (near Czestochowa) on 1
