1905 NYC Polices - Hyman and Pauline PERSKY #general

Allan Karan
 

Greetings,

Does anyone have a theory why I would not find the following, other than not being
home for the census?

Hyman and Pauline PERSKY 1904 marriage cert shows 168 Essex Street as their address
and their first child's 1906 birth cert., also shows 168 Essex Street as their
address. But they were not listed in the 1905 NYC Polices census. I checked the
building addresses before and after without any luck.

I did notice a Sam and Ettei EPSTEIN, husband and wife in their 60's, living there.
Pauline's maiden name was Ethel EPSTEIN, but I think her parents would have been
around 45 at this time so while I wonder if they were living with them and did not
get report it, I doubt it, If this EPSTEIN was related to Pauline. What is
interesting about the EPSTEIN entry is that Sam EPSTEIN shows he is living in the
US for 20 yrs while Ettei only 8 years. Pauline EPSTEIN 1910 Census shows she
arrived in 1900 which puts her around 16 years of age in 1900.

Researching:
KARAN, CHORON, KHARAKH and KNIGER (Kopyl; Grozovo; Chepeli; Slutsk,Belarus),
PERSKY (Poltava, Ukraine); EPSTEIN (Kobrin, Belarus)

Re: Bielsk Podlaski #general

Mark Halpern <willie46@...>
 

Dear Jose:

The 1835 BMD (birth, marriage, death) records are the only Jewish vital records at
the Polish State Archives in Bialystok. These were microfilmed by the LDS Church
and have been fully indexed by JRI-Poland. All these indices are online, but may
not contain any entries for KLESCZELSKI.

As for other genealogical sources, you will want to search the BIALYGen website and
join its discussion forum. BIALYGen is a JewishGen SIG established to share
resources for towns in the Bialystok region where few records exist. See
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/BialyGen/.

Books of Permanent Residents are records created and maintained only for towns in
Congress (Russian) Poland. Bielsk Podlaski was in Grodno Gubernia during this
period. Grodno Gubernia was in the Russian Pale of Settlement, not Congress Poland.
The Russian Pale did have Revision lists, which is probably the group of records
that is referenced in the Routes to Roots Foundation Archive database. As far as I
know, the only records that researchers have found at the Belarus State Historical
Archives in Grodno are lists of male residents of that town, not full revision list
of residents.

Also, take a look at the Bielsk Podlaski ShtetLinks site at
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Bielsk_Podlaski/.

COHN family of Strzalkowo, Posen Province #general

Jim Bennett <bennett@...>
 

I'm searching for the siblings: Isaac COHN, b. 1871; Leib [possibly Leo, Louis,
etc] COHN, b. 1875; Jacob COHN, b. 1877; Sarah COHN, b. 1883.

All were born in the small town of Strzalkowo, in eastern Posen Province,near the
then border with Russian Poland. They are the children of Marcus Moses COHN and his
wife Rosalie geb.KLECZEWSKI.

None of the four seem to have perished in the Holocaust. My hunch is that they
migrated to Berlin or to America, UK, etc, around the turn of the 20th century.

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland / Polish State Archives #galicia

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland
 

Dear fellow researchers:

At the IAJGS conference in Philadelphia earlier this month,
we made an announcement concerning the renewal of
cooperation between Jewish Records Indexing - Poland and
the Polish State Archives.

We told those in attendance that a new indexing project and
the re-institution of an order processing system are both
under discussion.

While it may be possible to have a new agreement in place
by early next year, there are many points to be clarified
and negotiated. As a result, there could be a considerable
delay in resuming both the indexing of records and the
order-processing system.

Therefore, should you be interested in ordering records
from the Polish State Archives, please note the following
two options:

1) You can immediately order records >from the appropriate
branch of the Polish State Archives. See the suggested
procedure at http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/neworder.htm, or

2) You can wait until the new JRI-Poland order processing
system goes online and then order the records using
a system that we expect will be far more streamlined
and will not require payment by costly bank transfers.

When there are more definite developments, we will let you
all know.

Tracking potential living relatives #general

David Schreiber
 

I've just recently discovered a potentially parallel family in Boston coming >from my
maternal grandfather's sister. Her son died very recently, 1987, and is buried in
Adath Jeshurun in West Roxbury, but the Massachusetts Cemetery Association could
not give me any info beyond the location of graves. I was wondering if anyone has
any techniques for finding living relatives such as may have issued >from this son
so that I might connect with them and verify the link. Thanks in advance.
