Dolginovo 1850 Revision List how to order? #belarus

Barry E Chernick
 

Hi,
I need some advice. I have found a Shulman family of interest in the 1850
Dolginovo Revision List. The referenced page is LVIA/515/15/934, Page
261, Reg No. 217. Do I really want to order the page? Is there going to
be any additional information that is not in the Belarus database? If I
decide to order the page how do I go about doing that? I have not been
able to find any ordering information after a number of "searches".

Epstein DNA Project #belarus

Marsha Epstein <mepstein@...>
 

We have established a DNA Project for male Epsteins to see if they are
related. We have at least 3 different branches of Epsteins so far, so if
you join, you can see if you are related to anyone who has already tested,
and will be notified if anyone matches in the future.
Please take a look at

http://www.familytreedna.com/surname_join.asp?code=R56553&special=True

for more information on sending a DNA sample, which just involves scraping
the inside of your cheek (and of course paying the $). Unfortunately this
test only works for male Epsteins. Fortunately we still have some living
male Epsteins, and my uncle was tested. So far he hasn't matched with
anyone, so I'm looking for a match. My Epsteins were >from "Bobruisk", but
probably a shtetl near Bobruisk. We don't know which one. I'm hoping to
identify a shtetl when we find a match.

Hallo GerSig, Mr. Tuchman >from Israel asked about a town in Germany. It

Dear all Gersigers,
May I suggest that the answer to Mr. Tuchman`s query about Fensburg or Lensburg is
FlLENSBURG which is very near the German-Danish border. Shalom >from Israel

The importance of knowing our ancestors occupations #general

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Dear Genners,

As usually you are a wonderful group of people. Many thanks for the
large amount of answers received to my message "why is it important
to know an ancestor's occupation?
Does it adds some important lead/clue to the related genealogical
search?". Let me summarize what you all wrote.

Unanimously the answer to my question was "yes, it is important or
*very important* to discover and learn our ancestors occupations".

The principal reasonings and justifications for that answer were:

1. Genealogical research isn't simply an exercise of collecting
names, places and dates. It goes far beyond the statistics, mainly it
comprehends learning more about how our ancestors dwelled and lived
in the old country. Knowing details about ancestors, like their
physical size or coloring or occupation, just adds more life to those
persons that we never knew. It makes them more human.

2. Knowing someone's occupation could permit to find additional
information about that person or family branch either in newspapers
or other (professional) directories.

3. Often Jewish family names are taken >from the work roles. Thus one
can deduce that somebody belonging to say the "Holtz" family ('wood'
in German) could be related to the wood business, or vice-versa, a
repeated occupation pattern could lead to discovering a new family
branch.

4. Official records related to a certain occupation might contain useful
information. If members of that occupation had an organization -- in
modern times, most likely a union -- that organization's records might
have information of genealogical interest.

5. If a relative had a common name, and/or a name that is commonly
misspelled, knowing the occupation could be a big help in assuring
that one is tracking the correct person when examining various
different genealogical sources.

Hope you find this recap useful
Friendly regards
Tom


Kansas City Sheffield Cemetery #general

Julian H. Preisler
 

Hello All:

I'm looking for someone who lives in the Kansas City
area who may be going to the Sheffield Cemetery of
Congregation Beth Israel Abraham & Voliner (BIAV).

There are two people buried there that I am trying to
learn the names of the father for each of them. So far
my correspondence to the Cemetery and Congregation
have gone unanswered. If anyone out there can take a
photograph of the two gravestones or convey to me the
names of the fathers (if they are on the gravestone),
I would be most appreciative.

Sophie LITMAN (wife)

Morris LITMAN (husband)

Thanks so much,
