Dear Genners,
On my grandmother's and mother's manifest it states that they came >from
"Bazar." Is this the same place as "Bessarabia?" Is Bazar in the Ukraine?
Please respond to msnodrog@...
Thanks in advance,

CAHN/WOLF/HEIMBACH families in Laer/Munster #general

Ben Forman <ben.forman@...>
 

Hi Genners

I'm trying a change of tack in the search for my CAHN/WOLF ancestors >from North
Rhine Westphalia region. I am now wondering if any of them lived in the Laer or
Munster region at anytime. So if any one is searching for the names CAHN, WOLF
or HEIMBACH in Laer or Munster or the surrounding region then let me know. I
have emailed the researcher registered searching for HEIMBACH in Laer on the
JGFF but haven't had a reply yet.

Any clues much appreciated, all the best

Crossing points US to Quebec circa 1910 #general

joyweave
 

I found at the Canadian National Archives site reference to records of persons
crossing into to Canada >from the US beginning in 1908.

My grandparents made several trips to and >from New York and Montreal between
1909 and 1916, either together or separately (evidence in the St. Albans records
of trips in the US direction).

I made the assumption that they traveled by train and ordered records of entry
points at Rouses Point, NY and St. Albans, VT as my best guess. Nothing found
for either of their names.

If they did, indeed, travel by train >from NY to Montreal, where would their
border crossing into Canada be likely, if not those two places?

Re: 1831 Polish/Lithuanian revol #general

Chaim Freedman noted that three of his relatives >from Plunge, Lithuania died
in 1831, and wondered whether their deaths were connected to the 1831 revolt
against Russia. Chaim and others with 1831 deaths might also consider that
there was then a cholera pandemic affecting Poland and much of Europe, which
had spread >from Moscow and other Russian cities via Russian troops.

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.

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.
