Thanks to All for "Mose Cohn" help! #general

S. Harris <jewishgen@...>
 

I usually express my thanks for those who assist me with lookups
individually, as I would prefer others do- so as not to clutter up the
list-- but in this instance I have not only done that but wish to let
everyone know that there's no need for anyone else to help me out re:
"Mose Cohn."

As I mentioned, this was not the correct name for the proprietor
of E.M. Cohen & Sons in Des Moines. Not only that, it was amusing to
read that the census-taker got two of the children's names wrong: Mary
came out Marie and Eli was written as Hely.

Another census had Mary and Eli's brother, Sam(uel) listed as
Samy. (With an second "m" I would understand...)

Two Portraits - Viewmate ID #general

Flo Elman
 

Dear Fellow Researchers,
I have posted two portraits on the Viewmate site
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html - Numbers VM4678 & VM4679

Although I can make out terrific resemblances to my maternal grandfather's
family, I cannot place these women. I would guess that the dark-complexioned
woman seems to have been a daughter or sister (given name - Gitl??
Tsivya?? ) of Pesach GOTLIBOVICH >from Cherkassy, Ukraine. Do you recognize
the ribbon she has on her dress? The slender fair-haired woman may have been
a relative to KOROSTYSHEVSKY or GOTLIBOVICH. She is 16 years old in the
photo which was taken in 1919. Does she look like anyone you recognize?
Can you identify either of them? If you can help, please contact me
privately at haflo@shaw.ca

Many thanks,
Florence Elman

Re: WWI Alien Registration Cards #general

Hello Bert and Others,
Some WWI Alien Affidavits have survived for Arizona, Kansas and St.
Paul, MN. The Arizona records have digital copies online at NARA. These
were for German (and some Austrian) aliens ("citizens >from countries at
war with the United States during the First World War"). You can find
links to these at...

Online World War I Indexes & Records
http://www.militaryindexes.com/worldwarone/

Look about the 5th listing down. There may be others as well.

Good luck with your searches.

just note that other "destroyed" records have occasionally been
found in odd corners of archives here and there.

The State of Minnesota conducted an alien registration during World War I
from 1917 to 1919. Microfilmed copies of the completed multi-page forms,
which generally contain a lot of genealogically useful information, are
available at the Minnesota Historical Society and >from the society through

GARTSTEIN from Novofastov, Ukraine #general

Elena Green <elena.v.green@...>
 

Shalom,

I am fairly new to JewishGen, but I thought I shall seek the advice from
JewishGenners pertaining to my genealogical research since I seem to have
been getting nowhere.

I am searching for the names of 8 or 9 siblings of my great-great uncle
Meyer-Haim Iosifovich GARTSTEIN, b. 1889 in Novofastov, Pogrebishchensky
rayon/district, Vinnitzkaya gubernya/oblast/region, Ukraine/Russian Empire,
to Iosif GARTSTEIN (b. 1874, Novofastov) and to >>> Chaya, with both parents
perished in 1919 pogroms. Meyer-Haim had 8 or 9 other brothers and sisters,
who are known to have immigrated to the USA fleeing the pogroms.

According to my grandmother, Riva Haimovna GARTSTEIN (b.1917, Novofastov),
eldest daughter of Meyer-Haim GARTSTEIN and Yenta Ruvinovna LURIE (b. 1891,
Novofastov), all the siblings immigrated to Philadelphia and Chicago. My
grandmother could only recall the names of her aunt Chanaleya and uncle
Shaya of the 8-9 siblings.

I have written to the Jewish Community of Vinnitsa, and to the State
Archives of Ukraine in Vinnitsa and Kiev, but haven't heard back >from them
as yet. I also tried searching for the names of g.uncles/aunts in Ellis
Island database and on Ancestry.com, but came up only with one person listed
as Welwel GARTSTEIN of "Novavastow" (b.1888?), who was heading to Chicago to
join his uncle, J. GOLDBERG. The search gave a few other GARTSTEIN
immigrated >from the towns other than Novofastov, e.g. Bar, Berdichev. I am
not sure whether they are related to my family or not since they're from
different shtetls.

In addition to the names of my great-great uncles and aunts, I've been
seeking any information on the shtetl of Novofastov, with almost no results.
I know that my great-great uncle Meyer-Haim like most people in his shtetl
worked on the Novofastov mill owned by a Polish landlady.

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions >from the Genners on how to go
about the search. Maybe there are things that are obvious for you,
experienced genealogists, which I cannot see. Any advice at all is welcomed.
Please reply privately to gartstein@shaw.ca. Thank you.
