Lithuania Internal Passports - 1919-1940 #general

Howard Margol
 

If there is any possibility that you had ancestors living in Lithuania
during the 1919-1940 period, I suggest you search the Internal Passport Database
on Jewishgen -
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Lithuania/InternalPassports.htm

In reviewing the translated records as I receive them I see many instances
where an individual applied for their internal passport in a different town
than the one they were born in or lived in. Example: a female who was born, and
lived in Jonava, was not included in the Jonava internal passport files. She
applied for her internal passport in the city of Kaunas. Looking for her
passport in the Jonava records will not bear fruit. Even if the internal
passport files for your town or village has not been translated as yet, you may
still find success in searching the database.

In early January, 2006, almost 4,500 translated records will be added to the
internal passport database.

Relatives stopped responding!!! #general

Leslie Weinberg <artsoul@...>
 

I am becoming so frustrated, and am wondering whether others have had the
same experience. I made a contact on my family, albeit a distant
relative, and was so excited that we might be able to put some of the
pieces of my grandfather's family together, and actually locate living
relatives. After two email exchanges, he stopped responding, and
although I made several attempts to reconnect, my emails were ignored.

Several weeks ago, I made another contact, thanks to a few of you who
were kind enough to make phone calls for me in Israel, and although
there seemed to be genuine excitement on the other end on behalf of a
granddaughter of a man who is also a distant relative of my
grandfather's family, that has fizzled also.

Both of these people firmly believed that there were no survivors, and I
told them both that there were *definitely* survivors, and I have been
trying to find them. What should have been excitement and interest have
turned into total disappearing acts. I don't think I have ever been as
confused or road blocked, even when I have hit dead ends in my research!

Have any of you had the same experience, and if so, how do you deal with
it? At what point do you just throw your hands up in the air and accept
the fact that even though there is information you know is out there,
and which would help immensely in reconstructing family trees, that you
just aren't going to receive it, and therefore may never succeed in
tracking down lost relatives???? Leslie Weinberg

Monogenetic (unique) surnames #general

Roger Lustig <julierog@...>
 

Dear friends:

The response to my query about surnames belonging to just one family has
been wonderful.

To those who submitted names: please understand that I'm not going to be
able to respond individually. At the moment I'm only responding when
some clarification is needed. I'll be posting a list soon.

To those interested in submitting names: in order to make things clear
from the start, please use something like one of the following:
"As far as I know, all Jewish families in the world that have the
surname [XYZ] are descended >from <name> [XYZ] of <place name>."

"As far as I know, all Jewish families with the surname [ABC], that
lived in <region> before <date>, are descended >from <name> [ABC] of
<place name>."

"As far as I know, all Jewish families in the world that have the
surname [PQR] are >from the town of <town name> in <region>."

Any further information about the original holder of the surname, such
as dates--exact or approximate--are welcome, of course.

Also, let's restrict ourselves to surnames adopted before 1900.

Finally, please don't post your submissions to the discussion group.
I'll do my best to get everyone's suggestions onto the list, or to get
back to you in some other way.

Thank you!
