Dear Group,
I have received translations of both birth records, so no longer need
this favor.

Good luck to all of you in your research!

Re: another question about the Latvia archives #latvia

Marion Werle <werle@...>
 

Again, it was awhile ago, but at the time, there was no charge for the
original request. They would tell you what they found and you had to pay at
that time. The Archives of the Registry does not accept direct payment--I
had to send a certified money order to the Latvian Embassy in Washinton, DC.

Also, I found a discrepancy between what I requested and what they sent, but
they did find some unexpected vital records. For example, I requested a
marriage record, but got a death record for the same person.

The records are certified transcriptions (not actual copies) and they are
sent in Latvian, with no translation. They won't send the records until
they receive payment.

It is possible that this situation has changed--my experience is >from 1998.

Many thanks to Eric for pointing to that URL of refugees in Tashkent!
While I found no one >from my families - alas! - I found hundreds >from
Latvia. If you ignore all entries in the search boxes except for the place
and then put in only the first three letters of Latvia - LAT - you will
come up with an enormously long list. The names are spelling phonetically
according to the Russian prononciation, so you might not find a name just
by entering it in the search box.

I see many family names being searched for by people on this list!

Re: Vienna telephone directory

There is a well-worn copy in the library of the Israelischen Kultusgemeinde
in Vienna. I doubt they have it on-line, but perhaps an email request might
produce results.

Prague registration forms database #austria-czech

Andrew Schwartz <anschwartz@...>
 

A couple of days ago, I posted a table of translations of the Czech words
in the drop-down selections of the site at http://digi.nacr.cz/prihlasky .
I was building upon the contributions of Hans Peter Grab and Eva Browne.

Unfortunately, the format of my table did not get preserved when it was
published through this site. So, I made a JPG of the table. You can get
this at http://tinyurl.com/2toghx .

Print it and then do an old fashioned cut-and-paste it onto your wall for
easy reference. <g>

Obtaining a marriage license #latinamerica

Rochelle Gershenow
 

What is the best way (other than traveling to Argentina) to obtain a
marriage license for a marriage that took place on November 20, 1909 in
Buenos Aires? The groom was Morris (Moshe) Purinson and the bride was Rose
(Reizel or Rochel) Chaikin. I am most interested in their parents' names.

1850 Census from Lyakhovichi to be translated #general

Family Tree Expert <expert@...>
 

If your family comes >from Lyakhovichi (also Lachowicze), Belarus, or nearby,
you'll be interested in this.

We are now indexing and translating the 1850 Revision List (Census) for the
Jewish Community (Kahal) of Lyakhovichi. It contains over 1,000 records
which will help to fill in some vital gaps on your family tree. This comes
on the heels of our recent success in indexing and translating the 1834
"Revision List" (Census) for Lyakhovichi.

You can learn more about our initiative by contacting m Gary Palgon at
Expert@FamilyTreeExpert.com.

As a reminder, over the years we have compiled documents dating back to the
late 1700s, most which have been made accessible through our group's website
at: http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Lyakhovichi/lyakhovichi.html, as
assembled by Deborah Glassman in 2005. Additional projects to be reviewed
in the future are listed at:
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/lyakhovichi/Upcoming%20Research%20Projects.htm.
But we can already tell you that when we complete the 1850
Revision, the next thing for us to look at will probably be the 1874 "List
of Jewish Males" for Lyakhovichi and the vicinity, so as to cover all the
available censuses for the 19th century.

He was deported to Auschwitz in 1943 and was a survivor in

knows more about this address ? It's rather urgent. Please respond
