All Jewishgenners,

There is a non commercial website called automatedgenealogy.com, that is
hosting a free and ongoing project to index the 1911 Canadian Census. This
website also has an index to the 1901 Canadian Census and a partial index to
the 1906 Census of the Northwest Provinces. The 1901 Census transcription is
99.9% complete, all that is missing >from it are two Books >from British
Columbia, Vancouver Island District, Cowichan Agency. I am doing the
transcription of them slowly as they are >from Indian Reservations.

The website address for AutomatedGenealogy is:

The link to the 1906 Census is:

The link to the 1911 Census is:

Good luck in searching for your Canadian relatives.

warts #general

I come to this thread late, but might just add that some
unpleasant "warts" have helped me in my genealogy research!
I was surprised to find out that my great grandfather
appeared regularly in the court news of his local paper. He
was a pawn broker, and with his brother Michael, was
regularly charged with extortion, receiving, and other
unsavoury practices. Now, this ancestor had an unusual name
(and you'll note I am not going to tell you what it is. We
can keep our dirty laundry in the family. Maybe my cousins
feel more private about this than I do), and interestingly,
a Michael, pawn broker, by the same name, is found in the
Manitoba court pages. I had, disregarded this Michael,
convinced our family had never been near Canada. But, the
similarity of his dismeanor and occupation were clues that I
pursued, and which allowed me to follow his pathway from
Canada, to Colorado and finally to join his brother (my
great grandfather) in Utah. while I haven't been successful
yet, I am hoping that research in Manitoba may open some
doors to the old country which have been closed to present.

French Jewish Scouts (Dinard & Beaulieu/Dordogne) & ALTSHUL family (Paris & Switzerland) #general

Alice Josephs
 

My mother (born 1931) and her elder sister attended the De Hirsch school in
Paris (1938-9) and were evacuated with the Jewish scout movement first to
Dinard and then to Beaulieu in the Dordogne until June 1940.

There was an older girl called Annette and also children called Jeanette,
Helene, Marguerite and Simone (as with my mother, names of refugees of
non-French origin may have been made more French).

My mother met two other survivors >from that time after the war Madame
ALTSHUL who lived in Paris and her daughter Charlotte ALTSHUL who was in
Switzerland in 1948. There was also a son ALTSHUL who survived the war
elsewhere. Madame ALTSHUL may have been interned with my grandmother in the
Velodrome d'Hiver (the bicycle racing stadium) in Paris. The ALTSHUL mother
and daughter both had flaming red hair, if this jogs the memory of anyone.

So, is there anyone else out there who was at the De Hirsch school and/or
was evacuated to Dinard and Beaulieu at the same time as my mother? Have
there been any books or research on this?

im researching KATZ >from the warsaw area,my great
grandfathers obituary states that he was of KUTNOW as
a town this does not exist in that context,it is
obviousley KUTNO,could anyone enlighten me as to
polish pronounciation,wether that means he was from
kutno or kutnow district.
many thanks
malcolm katz
The Polish pronounciation of Kutno is KOOT-no. As far as I know, there is
no such thing as "Kutnow". It may be just a misspelled "Kutno". However,
the adjective of "Kutno" is "kutnowski" (male), "kutnowska" (female) and
"kutnowskie" (neutral).
Kutno is the seat of the Kutno County or "powiat kutnowski" in Polish.
from that obituary, would you think that "Kutnow" was in the Warsaw area?
Kutno is in the Lodz area.

Warts and All #general

MEL OSHINS
 

Hello,
I believe we should tell all the stories.
Of course there should be a big distinction between stories, facts and
gossip.

I found out by accident of checking the Internet that a person with the same
surname as my cousin went into Bankruptcy. Then I found out the cause was
excessive gambling in Poker Tournaments. This cousin, to whom I have little
immediate knowledge, asked me for genealogical information on his family for his
granddaughter for a school project. Since there were two people with the
same name >from the Internet, I sent the info and asked him if he knew who this
person with the Bankruptcy was and also the other person with the same surname.
It turned out that the person with the Bankruptcy and the gambling problem
was his son. He knew nothing about it as they were estranged for a while. The
son was angered to the point of wanting to sue me for divulging this
information to his father, which of course was common knowledge and easily
accessible on the Web.
To make a long story short, my cousin and I no longer are in contact with
one another.
But the warts remain in the file and I find no reason to remove them.

This is a follow-up to my message about using www.stevemorse.org with a
commercial website to search the U.S. census. Apparently, it is against the
rules to mention such a commercial site, and the moderator was required to
delete its name. I have already received a request privately for the name
of the site and expect to receive more, possibly too many to answer
individually. For those who are interested, please see the stevemorse.org
site, which specifies the name of the commercial site in the section on
searching the U.S. census. The person who wrote me lives in Israel, and I
have no idea whether the commercial site is available in libraries outside
the U.S.
