Auschwitz Mug Shots #germany

Lande
 

In 1941 and 1942 prisoners admitted into Auschwitz were not only given
prisoner numbers but also photographed, the last view of persons almost all
of whom perished. While some of these mug shots were lost, many were saved.
608 of these mug shots with the identities of the persons who were
photographed have been published in Giuseppe Zambon's book Abel's Gesichter
Auschwitz and I recommend that researchers who had relatives who were
murdered in Auschwitz take a look at this book on the admittedly long shot
that a name/face may be of interest.

Unified 1940 [US] Census ED Finder on Steve Morse One-Step site #general

Dick Plotz <Dick@...>
 

Steve Morse has asked me to post this announcement for him. If you have any
questions about the new One-Step page, please use the link on Steve's site
to ask him. I have no further information and will not be able to answer
your questions.

Last week a new 1940 Census tool was added to the Census section of the
One-Step website (http://stevemorse.org). It's called the Unified 1940
Census ED Finder (http://stevemorse.org/census/unified.html). Here's some
background so that you can appreciate why this tool is necessary and what it does.

As you know, the 1940 census when released on April 2 will not have a name
index, and probably won't have a complete one for at least six months. In
the interim, the only way to access the census is by ED. That means that
researchers will have to determine the EDs for their locations. And the
largest collection of tools for doing such is on the One-Step website.

The One-Step 1940 ED tools consists of the Large City ED Finder, the ED
Street Finder, the ED Definitions tool, the 1930/1940 ED converter, the ED
Map tool, and the Census Tracts tool. That's a daunting number of tools so,
to make life simpler, a Tutorial Quiz was recently introduced (yes, another
tool) that guides the user through a series of questions and recommends the
appropriate tool based on his answers.

But the Tutorial Quiz takes time and understanding, and most researchers
would like to just jump in and find their ED. That's what the Unified ED
Finder allows them to do. They simply enter on the form as much of their
location as they know. The tool then makes the decision as to which of the
other One-Step tools is most appropriate, and takes the user directly to
that tool with the desired ED (or perhaps a small number of possible EDs)
displayed. And each ED so displayed contains a link to the census images
for that ED, although the links will not be operational until April 2.

Connecticut genealogy research help needed. #general

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Hi - I've read that Connecticut birth records that are not more than 100
year old, are not available to the public, except if you are an
immediate relative. However, I've also read that " y becoming a member
of a local Connecticut genealogy society, you are then permitted to
access any records at all." Can one join one of these societies, and
have access to city hall records than are later than 100 years ago?
Does one have to be a Connecticut resident?

Also, I am looking for someone to hire who has experience looking for a
divorce record, that might have occurred in either Hartford or Rocky Hill,
in the 1920s. I don't even know though, if such a record is possible to
find or not, especially without knowing the exact year, or specific court,
and whether those would be available for public viewing or not.

Thanks for any information that anyone can provide.

Re: Help with patronymics and cemetery record #general

tom
 

Granted that your probably dealing with the same family, you still
only have names, but no dates or places.

Clearly, Mordechai ben Chaim is not the same person as Mordechai ben Yosef
Aryeh, but since names "run in families", he could be a cousin or nephew.

I think that some, even approximated, dates might help to sort this out.

However, the Gokilo record says that Mordechai's father's name was Yosef
Aryeh. The Mordko Gukajlo records say, if I understand patronymics
correctly, that his father was Khaim. One of the people here is Arij which
would seem to be close to the name Yosef Aryeh, but then this couldn't be
Mordechai's father.

My maternal grandfather's records seem to indicate that his father's name
was Chaim Aron, which I suppose could have made him Mordko's brother, but
then there's that inconsistency with Yosef Aryeh. In any case, all of these
people seem to have been located within a reasonably short distance of Uman
and Buki. Can anyone help me resolve these records?

Yanova who lived in Chicago, Illinois. Last names in the letter may
include Adler, Kravets/Kravitz, Sasky, and Pinche. The links are:
