Social Security form SS-5 #general

Pearsaul@...
 

Does anyone know if this application form can be found online (to download
or copy?). I checked the Social Security Administration website but there
is no form. Do I need to write to the administration for the application
form?

Female names:
1. Brahna
I have several relatives >from Ukraine with the name
Braina/Bryna/Brina. I don't think it is an unusual name, and in the U.S.,
they became Bessie.

Re: EIDB Search Results Question #general

I've had instances, quite a few recently, using Morse's EIDB search
(http://home.pacbell.net/spmorse/ellis/ellisjw.html), where names do not
appear in his results but are in fact in the EIDB.
Does anyone know why?
Jeanne,
I can tell you about one case in my family where this happened. A
relative travelled and returned to the U.S. after having become
naturalized, and he was not listed in the Morse-Tobias shortcut Jewish
page. However, I found him via the other Morse access page (not for
Jewish immigrants).

When I looked at the scanned manifest, since he had been listed as a
U.S. citizen, he had no column listing him as a "Hebrew." I assume that
is the key that the M-T page uses to find the Jewish immigrants.

Perhaps the actual manifest does not have your relative listed as
"Hebrew"??

Just a thought.

Good luck.

Federal Budget Includes 4.5 mil for National E-Archives #general

N. Ring-Kendrick <adamsny@...>
 

Hello!

According to several news sources as well as genealogy newsletters the
Federal budget includes funds to assist preserving national records.

President Bush has requested an increase of 4.5 million in the current
budget to be dedicated to the National Archives and Records Administration
E-Archives. The purpose of the funds is to make additional records
available in a digital form. The e-archives will allow for the
preservation of all electronic records. The e-archives will also free
records >from the original format and extend their life-time. Doing this
will allow research of the digital formats now and years >from now.

In addition $655,000 has been alloted within the budget to bring the NARA
up to current electronic standards.

Hi all,
Thank you for responding to my poorly worded question about
ordering form NARA. Warren suggested I write "microfilm reader"
instead of "big light box". Sorry for sounding like the weakest link...
I'm really not.
Next time I'll keep my thesaurus nearby and promise to use
grammar check. Maybe.

Cuban Jews-Ship Travel #general

Isaac Michalowski
 

Hi All,

A large Jewish population was located in Cuba. My sister and I were born
in Havana.

Alot of the Steamship entries were through Elis Island >from Europe.

Is there a Steamship Directory that list travel >from Europe
to Cuba ?

Our family arrived in Cuba >from Poland circa mid 20's not yet sure of the
exaxt year.

Entry into the US was in 1954 through Florida.

Any lists available for Cuba to Florida ?

Thanks

Isaac

Re: Mac and the use of Jewish dates #general

George Farkas <gfarkas@...>
 

This is a clarification. I am not looking for a calendar convertor to
convert one date at a time. I am looking for a program that will convert a
whole database of dates and let me know what the Jewish date would be if
it was before or after sunset and what time sunset occurred on that day.
Conversely, converting a Jewish date would let me know the time of sunset
when the day started and when the day ended. I am told that the Mac can do
this. I cannot understand how this is possible as sunset comes at
different times in different locations. But if it is feasible, it would be
of great interest.

To all who have given me suggestions about a general calendar conversion
program, thank you, but that is not what I need.

George Farkas

Hi,

I have been told that the Mac can use the Hebrew calendar and even
considers the time of sunset. Does that mean that Mac users can
automatically and accurately convert Jewish dates to Gregorian dates and
vice-versa. If any Mac users have information on this, which can aid the
genealogy work tremendously. Does anyone know of a good calendar
conversion tool which considers the time of sunset?

Father and son sharing a name #general

Leah Aharoni
 

Once again thank you for all the wonderful letters regarding my ggfather's
photo and clothing.

One his tombstone he is called Abram Shmuel GRUZD. One of his sons was
also called Shmuel. That doesn't make much sense to me. As far as I know
European Jews were very careful no to name their children after the living
(certainly not father and son). BTW there seems to be another such case on
my Polish side (father and son named Sholom).

Any ideas?

Thank you in advance,

Leah
