Where are Moliv and Ekrasli/Ekraslinow #poland

A U.S. census document >from 1920 says that a couple was >from what was
Russia between 1900 and 1910 (it might now be Lithuania, Belarus,
Latvia, Poland, etc.), that the husband was >from Moliv, and that the
wife was >from Ekrasli or Ekraslinow.

Where in the Czar's former empire were Moliv and Ekrasli or Ekraslinow?

(Moliv might be a misspeling of Mogilev. I have no idea for Ekrasli
or Ekraslinow.)

Rosja ? #poland

Brian Lehman <blrrcn@...>
 

Hello,
I am searching JRI-Poland and need some help interpreting the search
results.

I notice that in much of my family, the fathers/mothers town is listed
as (Rosja), sometimes with another town.

I have looked for Rosja,as thus far can't seen to find it and am
wondering if Rosja is a district of sorts?

Thank you for your help,
Brian Lehman

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Actually "Rosja" is a country of sorts: the letter
"j" in Polish is sounded as an "i" -- therefore Rosia or Russia. This
could mean anywhere over the Russian border.

Translation from Yiddish request #poland

Igor Schein <igorschein@...>
 

I have recently connected with my SCHEIN cousins in the US after 75
years of lost communication between our families. The family
originally lived in Warsaw, but the children spread over 4 continents.
I am planning to post a success story separately. For now I'd like
the translation of two postcards

1) This one was written by my great-grandfather and great-grandmother
when they lived in Poltava in 1924, and addressed to my
great-grandfather's sister in Brooklyn. I am all set with Russian
text
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=19826

2) This one was written in 1927 by my great-grandfather's brother who
lived in Paris and later was deported to Auschwitz.

JRI-Poland NameFinder update #poland

Howard Fink <HowGen@...>
 

I wanted to let people know that there is an update (version 3.2)
available for the JRI-Poland NameFinder tool at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/tools/namefinder.htm

This tool is an Add-In that helps you more effectively search Microsoft
Excel files for text strings of interest, principally surnames. I works
on both Windows and the Mac (although the Soundex feature is not
available on the Mac), and there are both English and Polish versions of
the tool available.

The most noticeable changes >from the previous version are:

* In the case of Marriages, Banns or Divorces a border will be added
around the matching Akt numbers,

* Added color shading of Types to visually distinguish Births, Deaths
and Marriages,

* Added support for multiple bracket locking throughout soundex
expressions.

Searching for Great-Grandmother's Burial Info - NYC area #general

Carol Hochstadt
 

Dear Fellow Genners,
I have hit a 'wall' in trying to locate my great grandmother's death certificate,
which would tell me where she is buried. What I know: She was listed in the 1910
census as "Mertza GREENBERG" - living in Manhattan with known family members - and
did not appear in the 1920 census. Her maiden name was KIRSHNER. I believe that I
may have found her ship arrival record (1899, as Mirze GRUNBERG); she came >from
Romania.

What I've done so far: After much online research, I ordered 2 death certificates
from NYC, for "Mirel GREENBERG" (died 1913) and Mintzl Chiah GREENBERG (died 1916)
I was very disappointed to discover that, based on the maiden names, neither was
related to me. I searched JOWBR and in those individual NY cemeteries that make
online search available.

I have run out of ideas - she obviously died, and must be buried in the NY area,
but I cannot find her. If anyone has suggestions for how I might locate her, I'd be
most appreciative. I do not have a death date. Also, if anyone thinks Mirel or
Mintzl are their relatives, I would be happy to share the death certificate
information. Please contact me privately.

Many thanks,

Castle Garden info/re: pojps family #general

I have an1891 manifest showing my grandmother Rachel POJPS leaving Bremen on the SS
EMS with her sister Taube. She is not telling the truth about their relationship as
she calls herself wife, age 24 and child age 6 all of which is not true but I
imagine at the time there must have been a reason for it. When I try Casrle Garden
entries (I know >from her thats where they came into NY) I come up with a blank. No
one by that name. The name was actually POPS but on the 1891 manifest it is spelled
with a POJPS so I entered it both ways and come up with nothing. Any suggestions
how I can find what happened to them? I know they came to NY as I was 11 when
Rachel died and she lived with us so I am not dreaming. Please answer privately to
feigele1@.... Thank you in advance.

Subject: Robinson Family
From: jkt25@...
Date: August 15, 2011

Dear Genners:
I am looking for a Family whose last name was Robinson. They lived on Riverside
Drive in New York in the early 1920's. I know that they had three? teenaged girls
at the time.

My Great Grandmother, Devorah or Dora Robinson Silverman was the Sister to this
Robinson. My Mother, Frances Silver Throne was about five years old when she
visited them.

I wonder if anyone can identify this Family or know of them?

Thank you in advance.

Although there are 18 Jessie Wilsons born in Scotland in 1914 listed
on 'scotlandspeople.gov.uk' (a service of the National Records of
Scotland), I think you could ignore 15 of them who have middle names,
in the Scottish style, which are likely to be the mother's maiden
surname eg Jessie Hunter Brown or Jessie McNeill Brown - none of them
are likely to be your relative.

Is it possible that Jessie wasn't actually born 'Jessie' or Brown
wasn't the original surname?
