Early 20th Century Census Data #romania

Arik Solomon <Arik@...>
 

Fellow SIGers,

Does anyone know if there is a Hungary/Romania online census data >from
the early 20th century (1900-1930).
If not online, where else is it possible to get such data ?
I know that areas such as Transylvania (which I'm interested in)
switched hands more than once during this period of time, this is why I
want both censuses if available.


Thanks,

Arik Solomon

Tulchin #general

zerakodesh@...
 

Hello

I would like to be in touch with anyone who is searching for
their families >from Tulchin.

The convention in Toronto was wonderful. I even met a person
whose family is >from Tulchin who I had communicated with before.
She looked so much like my niece.

There is a whole group of people >from Tulchin in Duluth, Minnesota.
Many settled in Philadelphia, others in South America.

There is one family I would like to be in touch with, it was the
Wise,Weiss and other spellings of that name, so far, no replies.
I found them on the The Family Tree of Jewish People. Any ideas
or answers would be very much appreciated.

Thank you for any help you can offer. Tulchin was not such a
large place so many of these people may be related with out their
knowledge. There were so many cousin marriages, my mother's sister
married her first cousin.

Hello again,

In relating my thanks for all the help I received in locating
the information about my relative who died on Ellis Island, I
inadvertently left out two important people:

Cathy Horn, for her story about the "Forgotten of Ellis Island,"
and Rafael Guber for his article "When Genealogists Read History."
Both of those resources were of tremendous help. My thanks to both
of you.

I am hoping that the gentleman who asked me about Selig Adler's notes
at the American Jewish Archives Lecture at the Summer Seminar will
contact me privately as I have more info on the Selig Adler File that
is in the AJA. This file does contain a subfile of reminiscences of
members of the Jewish Community of Buffalo, NY that Selig Adler
collected when he was writing >from Ararat to Suburbia. There is quite
a bit of family information in this file.

Can anyone tell me where to go to get some information about this
school? My father Simon Sieger (AKA Simon Stander) graduated high
school at Harlem Prep (in NYC) about 1922. I would like to find
out something about the school, and see if I can access any school
records, but I don't know where to look. I assume the school was
a public school, since my father as a Polish immigrant (Ostrow
Mazowiecka) could not afford a private school. The school went out
of existence I believe around 1970. Many thanks for your advice.

Thanks to everyone who offered to help me with the translation of the
letter >from the Ukrainian archives.

The letter said essentially that there are no records for the surname I
inquired about (BLUMES), and further that the town I was interested in
(Rashkov) is not in Ukraine, but in Moldova.

Now I have it >from 3 good sources (Miriam Weiner, and two elderly relatives
of mine) that there are two towns called Rashkov - one in Ukraine, one in
Moldova!

Well, perhaps I will have luck in the future...

SINGER in Grodno #belarus

Marlene Bishow <mlbishow@...>
 

Fellow Researchers:

I am trying to follow a thread concerning my mggm, Guta (Gussie)SINGER
HANTMAN and I am lost as to where to begin. This is what I know:

Guta was born in about 1856 to Meir SINGER and Sarah BERGER. Family lore
says that Meir SINGER was a baker in Grodno or therabouts. They had at least
one other child, Jennie, born about 1859. Guta married Vulf Hantman
(Gantman) >from Smilovichi in about 1875-80 and they had 7 children: Mae,
Annie & Sam (twins), Sarah, Israel (aka Jessie, b. (1888), Al, (1889), and
Evno (aka Jacob, George and Jack, b. 1894). My mgf was Jack (Evno) and he
told me that they came to the US (NYC) as a family when he was 2 - about
1896. The settled on the Lower East Side. In about 1910, they moved to
Norwich, CT (near Colchester Road), where they operated a farm and boarded
visitors >from NYC. All of the children married and my gf and his brother Al
changed their last names to HARTMAN. Al and Jesse married sisters, Rose and
Rebecca Cohen.

I would like to try to find the information regarding the date and ship that
they came on. I have my grandfather's naturalization papers and his
application is blank in the area regarding this point. I also have his birth
certificate that confirms his date of birth as being in December, 1894. He
was born in Sverzhen' (then Mogilev gubernia).

I would also like to try to find out anything that I can regarding the
SINGER family >from Grodno(?), but I am at a dead end. Any suggestions?

By the way, Jennie SINGER married Aaron SCHITMAN and they lived on Madison
Avenue in Hartford, CT. Jennie's granddaugher, Estelle COHEN and my mother
Estelle KATZ, both told stories of what wonderful bread Guta baked, despite
the fact that in her later years she was blind and my ggf would have to hand
her the ingredients. They said that the family said that she had a gift for
baking that ran in the family. Guta died in May, 1936, while visiting in CT.
Six months later my ggf died - the family says that he died of a broken
heart.

Any ideas for how I can pursue this?
