Re: Fw: Silversmiths in New Haven, Ct. 19th cent. #general

backon@...
 

My greatgreatgrandmother emmigrated >from Russia (Novogrudok), via Liverpool,
to New Haven, Ct. (USA) sometime between1880 and 1890. She and her (second)
husband were silversmiths.
I don't know her second husband's family name , but her first family name
(as were her 4 children who came with her) was Rivka ABRAMOWITZ.

Is there any way of finding records about her in New Haven on the basis of
the above information? Maybe a list of jewish silversmiths in New Haven
during that period of time?

Go to http://news.google.com/archivesearch/advanced_search and in
the section "With all the words", type in "Abramowitz New Haven". Then
check "prior to 1950". You'll get back newspaper reports >from New
Haven (>from the 1920's and 1930's) on anyone named Abramowitz.

Early records in Kishinev? #romania

George Mason <gmason3815@...>
 

I am seeking information about ancestors that may have lived in Kishinev
(Chisinau, Moldava) in the late 1700s and early to mid-1800s. Can anyone
tell me how far back the records of birth, death, census, etc go for this
area and where to find them? I have been told that one ancestor was named
Leibele ("Little Lion") KISHINISKI. He had a son who eventually assumed the
surname RITEVSKY. Leibele had a brother named Meishele who had sons who
assumed surnames of BERNSTEIN, SHAPIRO, FRIEDBERG, and MOZESSON. That is all
I know. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you for the fascinating information on substitutions for the Jewish

Access to Czech Vital Records #austria-czech

E. Randol Schoenberg
 

The Austrian records have at least been filmed by the FHL, but so far none
of our Czech records. Is anyone aware of any efforts to rectify this and
permit the FHL to copy Czech vital records?

Re: IKG Records #austria-czech

I do not know why we are suddenly talking about the IKW, which is an industrial
trade association dealing with soaps, detergents and cosmetics etc:

IKW Industrieverband Korperpflege- und Waschmittel e.V.
German Cosmetic, Toiletry, Perfumery and Detergent Association (IKW)

The correct term is IKG = Israelitische Kultusgemeinde:

http://www.ikg-wien.at/

BTW, as far as I know only the Vienna vital records ie BMD, were in
control/duplicate form, so the multitude of others [many topics] must be
originals filmed recently. There are apparently now 551 records available.

As for Peter Lowe's suggestion that it would be cheaper to go to Salt Lake City
- assuming you look at only 450 films and take an hour over each one, that
would require three months or more in a hotel and an eight-hour day. And there
is the air fare and the food as well. There must be a better way, ie free
access to the films at a Centre in Vienna, would be my dream come true. And
should this really be a dream? After all, they are our records and do not
belong to the FHL.

The URL still didn't come thru correctly. May I suggest using tinylink?
http://www.digipills.com/tinylink/ajout.php Free program, downloadable
easily (otherwise I could not have done it) and it converts long, confusing
URLs into short manageable ones. A real help!

For example:
http://tinylink.com/?xQ3xj93bEv
is what Tinylink made of that loooong URL:

play=titledetails&titleno=196164&disp=Matrikel%20%20&columns=*,0,0

The films of the "primary" records held at the IKG are in the same
record of the Family History Library catalog (referenced in several
recent messages). The first 111 entries are the films of the copies in
the City Archives. Then there is a comment "Andere Verfilmung, 2004".
Following these are the films of the original IKG registers, beginning
with film number 2203448.

Need synopsis of a document from Belarus written in Spanish #belarus

Joyce Oshrin <joshrin@...>
 

Need synopsis of a document >from Belarus written in Spanish
This Spring a relative (who was born in Domachevo and left when he was 9)
revisited Domachevo. He came back with many pages in Russian pertaining to
the town. When WW2 ended, Stalin ordered every town in Russia to write a
report of what happened to the town while the Nazis were there and who was
killed etc. He came back with those reports but they are in Russian. It's
not Old Russian but I can't translate it. I do have all the pages on a CD.
Could someone read it and tell me what it says?
The other pages that he brought back and sent to me was about 40+ pages of
a book written by a Domachevo survivor. It tells the entire history of Domachevo, plus the
war years, etc.It has many names in it. It was in Russian. I told him I
couldn't read Russian so he said he'd get it translated for me. I received
the translation a few weeks ago but it's in Spanish.I can't read Spanish
either. I'm going to put the pages on a CD in tiff. form. Could someone
read it (and not
translate it) and just give me the gist of the contents if I sent them the
CD? Tell me what it says about the names mentioned?

Thank you,,
