Hi

from the UK how can I look up the inhabitants of 438 and 474 Saratoya
Ave Kings NY? Tried on a paid website to no avail.

Does anyone have any ideas or have access to the 1920 Census.

Many thanks

Everything but the family: stories of Australian Jewish South Africans #southafrica

H.E. <heastern@...>
 

Here is a media release of an interesting exhibition, opening in Melbourne
[Australia] next month, that would be of interest to fellow SASIGGERS.


Exhibition
Everything but the family: stories of Australian Jewish South Africans
Jewish Museum of Australia
11 March - 1 July 2007


Everything but the Family traces a minority group
who, after fleeing the poverty and pogroms of
Eastern Europe, found themselves in a privileged
social position in South Africa simply by virtue
of their skin colour. As they engaged with the
restrictions and inequities of the society in
which they lived, and for the most part
prospered, by the middle of the 20th century the
Jews of South Africa had established an
identifiable, educated and culturally rich
presence. Apartheid, its concomitant violence,
their troubled consciences and their desire for
safety have brought them to Australia over a fifty-year period.

The complex story of the Jewish community in
South Africa and the migration of many of its
members to Australia is the subject of this exhibition.

South African Jews in Australia are an unusual
migrant group - entrepreneurial, often highly
educated, usually professional, financially
secure, culturally and linguistically at home and
active in the Jewish and wider
community. However migration is never easy even with all these advantages.

Over one hundred expat South African Jews have
been interviewed for this exhibition, giving us a
glimpse of their lives in both countries.

Leaving South Africa, a country of unforgettable
natural beauty, in almost every case was a
difficult decision - life in South Africa was
full, rich and exciting. The Jews were an
established, comfortable, homogenous community
that enjoyed a degree of luxury impossible elsewhere in the world.

Adapting to Australia has been a success story
for young South Africans like Don, who slotted
into schools, professions and businesses, taking
full advantage of cultural similarities. "It was
an easy migration," say Bob and Renate
Kamener. There was no problem for Bob
practising medicine or Renate teaching. The
language, the weather, the sport, the culture
were all the same. Also it was a time (1965)
when because of the Australian cultural cringe,
foreign was seen as superior and people saw us as exotic.

Like most migrants many South Africans experience
ambivalence. "I go back once a year" says
journalist, Jill Margo. "South Africa is still my
internal landscape. I have now spent more of my
life in Australia than South Africa but I don't
really feel like I belong to either place. I'm in
immigrant limbo. Having said that, I do love
coming home to Sydney. >from the airport I always
ask the taxi driver to take me along the harbour I love so much."


Everything but the Family will be launched
by Brian AM and Dr Gene Sherman
at the Jewish Museum of Australia on Sunday 8 March at 6pm


Anyone with particular questions relating to the
above, is welcome to contact me privately.

Re: Minnesota and Wisconsin help needed #general

Records of naturalization proceedings held in the Minnesota district
courts are held by the clerk of district court in each county. The
addresses should be listed on the state's webiste,
<www.state.mn.us>. The Minnesota State Historical Society also has
copies on microfilm. For further information, go to its website at

http://www.mnhs.org/genealogy/family/genieguide/immigration.htm

Minnesota courts retained concurrent jurisdiction with the federal
courts into the early 1950's. A number of naturalizations also took
place in the Minnesota Supreme Court. Those records will be found at
the Minnesota State Historical Society.

Records of federal court naturalization proceedings are held at the
National Archives branches in Chicago and Kansas City, depending on
the court in which the proceeding took place and when. Minneapolis
naturalizations generally are held in Kansas City. St. Paul and
Duluth naturalizations generally are held in Chicago. The federal
district court clerk's offices in Minneapolis and St. Paul maintain
card indexes to their naturalizations and will do look-ups on a
limited basis. I have found it easier in recent years, however, to
e-mail the appropriate NARA branch. They are very responsive to inquiries.

Seeking Joseph JACKSON; SHERR; ISAACSON #general

Chaim freedman
 

My late paternal grandmother Annie Freedman (nee Quint) was born in 1885 in
Pikeliai, Lithuania.She immigrated to London in 1896. She died in 1967 in
Melbourne, Australia. There was a family in Melbourne, Tait, with whom my
grandmother claimed a relationship.

I recently discovered that Rebecca Tait (previously Taitelbaum) was married
in Glascow in 1904. According to the record I found on-line, Rebecca's
parents were Joseph and Chai Jackman (Chai nee Isaacman). This fact
correlated with another relationship whereby my grandmother's paternal aunt
Lieba (Leah) nee Kvint(Quint) was married to Joseph Isaacs (formerly
Isaacman) a relative of Rebecca Tait.

I found in the 1901 Scotland census that Rebecca's parents were Jackson and
not Jackman, and in the death record of Joseph in 1920, his mother was
Goldie nee Sherr. This gave me the relationship with my grandmother whose
maternal grandmother Rokha Yekhovi was the daughter of Isaac Katz and Dinah
nee Sherr. I presume that Dinah and Goldie were sisters.

I discovered another relationship my grandmother talked about with Scottish
connections. In Glascow lived her grandmother's sister Beila (Bessie)
Brandson (died 1920). Her daughter Sophie was married to Jacob Bernstein of
Dunfermline and the family settled in Melbourne in 1920. Beila's death
record gives her mother's name as Dinah Sherr.

The Tait family settled in Melbourne in 1913 and my grandparents and father
in 1921.

If am seeking relatives of Joseph Jackson, and the Sherr and Isaacson
families. (I have already contacted those listed in the Family Finder).

Hi Genners,
I had to share a success story!
I have been searching for the children of Abraham and Fanny Schechter,
who lived in Philadelphia in 1920. This search has lasted about 10 years!
With the help of all of your answers to my message that I recently posted
and especially the one by Eleanor Gordon, I found him this morning! He is
87 years old! We spoke on the phone and I was able to tell him stories
about his own family in Russia, that he never heard. I was also able to
tell him that he has a first cousin that may still be alive in Beer Sheva,
Israel (based on the Yad Vashem Pages Of Testimony).

Thank you all!
