Hello,

My name is Hava Porat and I established my family tree

My father Yechiel Maximilian Korn who after
immigrating to Israel change his name to Meir Dgani
came form Tarnobrzeg.
my father's granfather was Shlomo David Korn whom (I
understand) was very known in the town. He was born in
1856. He was married to Bilma Nussbaum born in 1864
and killed on Belzec camp during the Holocaust.
My granfather Naftali Korn born in 1885 was married to
Eva (Hava) Kranz born in 1881 both killed on Bezec.
I am looking for information on Korn, Nussvaum and
Kranz families.
Can anybody help me?

Request for Viewmate Translations from Polish to English #general

HJB <hjb@...>
 

I would be very grateful if a kind JGenner is able to translate these
documents which were obtained through use of the LDS films made available at
the IAJGS Conference this summer. My thanks to those who arranged the
availability of these films.

I am interested in all details of information in these documents but will
certainly appreciate any efforts which are made.

VM 8702 Description: Marriage(1863)of Aron KANEL to Szejna SUD in Grodno

I think that the headings are Russian but the data should be Polish judging
by the year...I'm really not certain. Hopefully I have the correct record.

Re: Immigration to USA via Canada #general

Alan Greenberg
 

The passenger lists have recently been put online at
http://www.collectionscanada.ca/archivianet/passenger/index-e.html.
They are not indexed by name, but if you know the date (or at least
the year), it should be easy to find your GGPs - the port of Montreal
was closed in the winter, so each ship only docked there 4-6 times a year.

Moreover, if you know (or once you know) the ship arrival date, there
were separate manifests filled out for all passengers who said they
were US-bound. These manifests tend to be more complete than the
Canadian manifests (which list all passengers regardless of
destination). The manifests are included in the St. Alban's lists.
Note that I am not referring to the St. Alban's card index, but the
full manifests that they point to. Although in theory, the index
SHOULD include all passengers who are in the manifests, there are
examples where they are missing. But with the name of the ship and
date, you can go directly to the manifest.

VM8692-3: translation of Galician tombstone #general

hekenvin@...
 

I have had a photograph of my great-grandfather's grave in Skala
(now Ukraine) for several years. We recently discovered that the
tombstones in the Jewish cemetery in Skala have inscriptions on both sides.
A tourist who visited the cemetery last month brought me photographs of
the reverse side of the tombstone of my great-grandfather,
Hersh Eliyah Wiesenthal (Tsvi Eliyahu ben Yosef Aryeh), after whom
I am named.

On Viewmate, there are two photographs of the reverse side: an overview
and a close-up. I can read my great-grandfather's name in Hebrew, but
not the rest. I would be grateful if someone would tell me what the
inscription says. The viewmate addresses are:

Hello, friends:

I could use your help in translating the Hebrew on the tombstones of my
three great grandparents. They're each only one line, so I don't suspect
this will be any great effort.

Photos are on the viewmate at:

Re: Passenger Lists for Rhode Island Ports #general

Peter Zavon <pzavon@...>
 

It would have been helpful had you said *when* your uncle arrived, even if
only to the nearest decade.

There was no "Port of Rhode Island" although there may have been a port in
Rhode Island. All surviving official passenger lists are on microfilm at
the US National Archives in Washington, DC., and, I believe, also that the
Branch Archives in Pittsfield, MA. The films for ports in New England,
which includes Rhode Island, will also be at the ranch Archives in Waltham.
The Mormon Family History Centers can borrow many different microfilms,
including copies of these, >from their Family History Library. They are then
made available for your use in the Family History Center.

For Providence, RI, Passenger lists are on film for the period >from 17 June
1911- Jan 1943. There is an alphabetical index to passengers arriving at
Providence covering 18 June 1911 to 5 Oct 1954. There are also book indexes
to the Providence Passenger Lists covering 13 Dec 1911 - 26 June 1934.

There are also Customs Passenger lists for Bristol and Warren, RI for
1820-1871 and for Providence for 1820-1867. Their names are part of a
larger index covering 19th century arrivals at Great Lakes, Atlantic and
Gulf Coast lists (Expect NYC)

The above is based on a 23-year old compilation >from the National archives,
so some additional materials may have been added.
