I encountered the name of the town "Przyrowice" during my research in LDS
records >from Czestochowa. Does anyone know which town that name is likely
to refer to (current name and 19th century name)? It might turn out that I
have a couple of letters wrong.

Dear Genners,

I have posted the reverse of a photograph of an unknown woman.
The date,judging by her dress, might be the second half of the
19th century. If the printing includes the location of the
photographer,it might help to identify her. It is probably in
the Ukraine (Russia). There are apparently two words
in Yiddish in the upper left corner that might include her name.

Delays for Canadian Vital Records Requests #general

David Priever
 

Dear Fellow Jewishgenners,

I have two fellow genealogy friends who live in Canada who have been
outstanding in helping me with Canadian research who have
kept me posted with the problems with cutbacks in staff
in the Registrar General' s Office.
Back in September I requested two (2) death certificates
from Ontario,Canada. I sent in the appropriate fees. I have
made many calls to the Registrar General in Thunder Bay, Ontario.
In one of my calls I asked if they could at least tell me
if they received my request. The representative I spoke to
said they had no way of checking the status of my request. If it
was not in their computer it didn't get past their mail
room or wasn't opened yet. I hope I remember that
part accurately.

I have the receipts for the purchase of the money orders
(they were US International Money Orders as the death
certificate application said the funds could be send in
US Funds, which was the convenient way for me to do
it at the time. Going to the Post Office to have a trace
put on the checks costs more time and money.

If anyone reading this is a Canadian Government member,
especially working for the Registrar General, please tell me
officially if almost 7 months is normal to wait for documents???
What is happening???

Thank you.

Sincerely,

David Priever

Re: Variant Spellings of surname BOIM #general

Sally M. Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

Spelling is variable in the US records, and moreso in an area like
Russia/Poland/Lithuania/Belarus where your ancestors are from. There were
multiple languages spoken and written by the clerks, and in all the civil
records the clerks would have been transliterating names which were spoken
by our ancestors who would have spelled them in Hebrew if asked.

So, Boim and Bojm are just the most common of the spellings you might
find-as the i and j are often interchangeable in that area. Baum is an
Einglish/German spelling and I would not expect it to be common in that
area. The word would not have been pronounced like the German spelling, but
more like Boim most likely.

Like the rest of us, you need to look for every reasonable spelling for the
sound of the name-and some not so reasonable as well.
