Hello.

I am wondering if there is a singular website for the FINE surname.
Also, how can I get info on someone comming to Ellis Island/NYC in the

Thanks.

The moderator rightly urged that people trying to find their ancestral

resource is useful for those who lack paper maps and atlases and who cannot
readily visit a library or bookstoroe to look at maps and atlases. Names of th

map coordinates for the city of Smolensk, then clicking on the map for Smolensk
and using the map's "zoom out" function.

In response to Ms. Alznauer Larry Guam was also helpful in his respone to
Ms. Alznauer although I think he may have erred in suggesting that in 1891
residents of Smolensk" may have been among those forced to live in the Pale. (As
was widely reported and reacted to with internation outcry, in 1891 many lower
class and some middle class Jews were expelled >from Moscow which but I am not
sure whether Smolensk Jews were also expelled >from Smolensk in 1891.)

Ms. Alznauer may want to read Professor Michael Hickey's online article on
the "Legal Status of the Jews of Smolensk," for which he did research in the
State Archives of Smolensk during June, 2004. She can find this article at:

http://www.irex.org/programs/stg/research/04/hickey.pdf.


Hickey has written several other articles on Smolensk Jews which are publis
hed in various scholarly reviews. At Hickey's website, she can find his email
address and ask him whether Jews were expelled >from Smolensk in 1891.

Ms Alznauer should also read the Encyclopedia Judaica article on the history
of the Jews of Smolensk at:

Also, at:

www.jewish encyclopedia.com

there is an article about Note (Nathan) Notkin, an army contractor and
financier and one of the relatively few Jews permitted to live permanently in St.
Petersburg. In the early part of the 19th century he dared to contest the
Tsar's plans to expel the Jews >from Kovno and Smolensk and through his tireless
intervention, succeeded in preventing these expulsions by getting the imperial
decree remedied in favor of the Jews.

(Throughout the nineteenth century it sometimes happened that provincial
governors petitioned for the return of Jews to their respective jurisdictions,
After some time had elapsed, the governors or mayors and their gentile
residents soon regretfully realized how important Jews had been to their economy.)

At:

http://motlc.wiesenthal.com/text/x30/xm3048.html


there is an Encyclopedia Judaica article about Smolensk. It does not mention
an 1891 expulsion.

Also of interest to Ms. Alznauer is Edward Victor's redaction of an
Encyclopedia Judaica article on Smolensk. On his website at:

http://www.edwardvictor.com/smolensk_main.htm

she can view a picture of the great synagogue of Smolensk city.

At:

http://www.wordiq.com/definition/Smolensk_Oblast

there is a list of the administrative districts of the Smolensk oblast. If
Ms. Alznauer's ancestors did not live in the city of Smolensk, then her
ancestral town may have been located in one of the listed districts.

It is true, however, that many people claimed they came >from this or that
city, when actually they came >from some place near that city. I still do know
know whether my paternal grandfather was born in the city of Pinsk, as he
stated on his naturalization papers, or whether he was born in some shtetl near
that city.


It is difficult to find a good researcher abroad and expensive to hire
one. But I have read that the Mormons (Latter Day Saints) recently have been
busy photographing and microfilming hitherto unknown records in the Ukraine and
Russia so maybe someday we will be able to find our ancestors' old records on
LDS microfilms.

Seeking UFFENHEIMER cousins #germany

Adam Yamey <adamandlopa@...>
 

One of my mother's ancestors was Hale (Helene) SPRINGER. She had a sister
Nanette SPRINGER (20 May 1824 - 12 May 1909) who married Daniel Gedalya EHRMANN.

One of their daughters Babette (1848-1919) married
Heimann Hermann UFFENHEIMER (1843-1911).
They had 5 children including amongst them: Gustav (born 21 Nov 1871),
Albert (born 24 may 1876 and Karoline (born june 1879, died 1936).

Gustav UFFENHEIMER seems to have gone at some stage to London, UK.
Albert UFFENHEIMER was almost certainly Prof. Dr. Albert UFFENHEIMER, born in
Fuerth, who worked in a hospital in Magdeburg before fleeing to the USA via London.
Karoline UFFENHEIMER married Max ELLERN-EICHMANN, and they had a son,
Max Hans EICHMANN (b about 1905).

It would help me greatly if anyone is able to supply me with more information
about the descendants of Babette and Heiman Hermann UFFENHEIMER.

Intro - H. & C. TIETZ in Chemnitz, Erich JACOBY #scandinavia

Dr. Juergen Nitsche <JuNitsche@...>
 

I seek information about the department store H.& C. TIETZ in
Chemnitz (celebrating 100 years). The original firm was founded
by Markus TIETZ in Bamberg , one of the brothers. In the building
project were included the brother Sali and Leopold KAUFMANN. The
later owner was Gustav GERST. The only known manager was Hermann
FUERSTENHEIM, killed November 10, 1938.

I am trying to reconstruct parts of the family tree of the well-known
family TIETZ. I have been doing so for about a year, but there are
still some gaps I would like to fill. The book will be published in
some weeks. I have contacted a lot of institutions, companies and
researchers, but the results were mostly the same. Could you recommend
somebody who might be able and willing to help me?

I am also looking for names of earlier employees. I know, Erich Richard
JACOBY was one of the buyers, he was murdered in Auschwitz. His son
Gerhard, born 1925 in Berlin, has left Chemnitz in 1939 and lived in
Sweden. His last know address was in 1960:

G. JACOBY c/o Lavenius Vanadisvägen 42, II Stockholm Va -
Who knew him? Who knows his recent address?
Thank you very much in advance!

These are two resources that I used a several years ago for 1900 ED's.

LDS Microfilm 1414873 has NYC ED maps for 1900, 1910, 1920, 1930, 1940 -
some of this film is not very readable (i.e. Brooklyn 1900), but
that may have been a function of the copy I looked at.

LDS Microfilm 1033889 (Item 5) has the 1900 ED map for Manhattan
and the Bronx, it was very easy to read.

Step 2: Use the Facilities of Jewishgen #general

Phyllis Kramer <phylliskramer1@...>
 

Alex asked :does anyone know how i should proceed >from here?? Are there any
websites or contacts that i can find to discover more information (about
Korostan)?

Two points: Alex, first, tell us just a little more about your family
(approx years of birth, emigration etc), what you have done (ie: census,
ellis island, jewishgen archives, foreign archives you've written to, etc)
and then tell us what you want to know......then we know how to best respond
to you.........

Next point: Why not use Jewishgen's resources?? Its the greatest collection
of genealogy databases and its designed for us! Many of us have been there
before and we've documented what we've found........

If you have not already done so, your search will be helped with the
following steps.
Go to JewishGen on the Web at http://www.jewishgen.org

1. Register surnames and towns at JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF)
<http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/> and search the existing listings (always
use the SOUNDEX). Email those researchers who might be >from the same family.
Once you register here, you can go onto the Family Tree of the Jewish People
(FTJP) and look thru thousands of individual entries.

2. Read the JewishGen FAQ written and updated frequently by Warren Blatt
<http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/faq.html>. If you are researching
Eastern Europe, read the eastern european faq too.

3. Look at the JewishGen Infofiles and Databases for articles of interest.
These are wonderful genealogical files are catalogued by subject and country
at <http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/> and
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases

4. use the general search facilities at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/Search.htm and prior messages
on this bulletin board at
http://www.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.isa?jg~jgsys~archpop and
http://www.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.isa?jg~jgsys~sigspop
(special interest group archives)

5. is there a shtetlinks web page for your town? It would give you history
and connect you with other researchers.

Another suggestion......when I research a town, I realize that
neighboring towns contained relatives.....so I get the latitude/longitude
of my town and another researcher claims his people are >from
some other town I dont recognize,...........I go into the
shtetl seeker on jewishgen........put in the coordinates of
my town.......then the other researchers town name......
and shtetl seeker will automatically compute the distance between
the two towns. This helps to know if I should pursue the
other researcher.
