Bielsk Podlaski #general

Jose Klingbeil
 

Dear friends,

Does anyone know what genealogical sources are available for the city of Bielsk
Podlaski (near Bialystok)? It seems that there is no record at all in JRI although
the only LDS microfilm (only for BMD of year 1835) is shown as "complete". There
could be a Book of Permanent Residents but I found no trace at all. A census seem
to exist in Belarus (found in Routes to Roots Foundation) but no index available on
Internet. Can someone help me find these sources? I'm looking for KLESCZELSKI
families.

Best,

Information re Rabbi Uri Miller of New Orleans and Baltimore Synagogues #general

bud484bg@...
 

Dear researchers:

I have about exhausted my resources in my search for information about Rabbi Uri
MILLER who was the rabbi of Ansche Sfad Synagogue/Beth Israel Synagogue in New
Orleans, Louisiana, in 1944 and Beth Israel Synagogue in Baltimore, until he passed
away at the age of 66 in June of 1972. I have not been able to find an obit
mentioning surviving family members- or cemetery information in newspapers ( the
Baltimore Jewish Times). During his lifetime, he was President of the Synagogue
Council of America and was part of the Civil Rights movement and was on the program
in Washington, DC with Martin Luther King, Jr.

Does anyone have any information or can supply a link?

(FYI - Rabbi Miller performed the marriage service for my then soldier groom and I,
in the Rabbi's study, in New Orleans, in March 1944).

I wouldn't assume that she wasn't a "true" older sister just because it might have
been easier to emigrate if the immigrant claimed to have a close relative. Don't
rush to write someone off on that basis - you won't know if she is a sibling until
you trace through the birth records.

My great-grandfather Nathan Paderefsky is listed in the 1900 New York census with
his wife and children and, along with them is Jacob, a brother. Nathan in 1900 was
38 years old, Jacob is listed as 20 years old - a difference of 18 years!

Is Jacob a full brother, a half-brother or perhaps no "true" brother at all? I
don't know yet. But, if he is a full brother or even a half-brother, suddenly my
tree just got a lot larger.

If someone wanted to emigrate to the US it was considered much easier for
processing if the immigrant claimed to have a close relative. It was insurance
against the possibility of being denied entry. The same thing shows on the
manifest for my grandfather and his sister and their father who all arrived
together. They respectively cited an unnamed sister and daughter. This really
confused me because I could find no evidence that there was a close relative
already in the US.

Re: family trees from existing databases #general

Erika Herzog
 

I wanted to clarify something about the family project I am working on where many
of the records are concentrated in the same town (in this family project it is
Golub-Dobrzy, but for another it's Radzanow, and so on and so on...).

While I may be lucky enough have quite a few records or translations I will be
handling that information very carefully. The information is going into a personal
family tree as part of my personal family project. Once that is done I will export
the gedcom file into a website template that lives in a password-protected section
of my website, so only people I know and have vetted will be allowed access.
These records are so important -- I am aware of how meaningful they are, especially
to my extended family. I would not like to jeopardize any sort of access to the
records for anyone else or for the future just because I have made a collection of
them for my family project.

That said, if someone else is trying to find records >from Golub-Dobrzy, Radzanow,
etc., I hope that I have made enough references to the towns and have been clear
enough in the JewishGen FTJP/JGFF databases that as a natural course people would
contact me or my fellow mishpucha (family). Please do!!! Because if the work is
already done, why not save a fellow family member the stress and effort/reinventing
the wheel?

Not to stand on a soapbox or be too repetitive, but I feel very strongly -- and I
think many other people in the Jewish genealogy community I've talked with feel
this too -- that it is important to get the younger generations as involved in
genealogy as possible. I think that as a relatively youngish genealogist myself,
it's important to have these types of discussions about records and what to do with
them, about the responsibility of having the records and managing them, to allow
this discussion to be in a public forum. So that newish genealogist can understand
what might not be clear about the privacy and care of these records.

I wanted to add that I find the discussions very helpful, both on and off list, at
the conferences and just in the one-to-one conversations I have had with people.
I thank everyone for their patience and good humor in discussing some of this
information. While quite a bit seems very clear, other aspects of this research is
not. I am glad to continually learn more every day.
