SAMI Family of Larissa, Greece #general

Michael Waas
 

Hi,

I'm looking for people who may be familiar with this family. Alternate
spellings include SIAMI(S) and SH(I)AMI. I know that my late relative
Nissim BEGAS married Betty SAMI who is the daughter of a close friend
of my great-grandparents. However, the name I vaguely recall as
Betty's father, Sam, is the same name as a man who is listed as a
cousin by my great-grandmother's half-brother. Families associated
with the SAMI's of this branch include AZARIA, ANGEL, and ALHANATI.

Best,

Michael Waas
Miami, FL

Researching: HELLING #general

Faye Symington <faye@...>
 

Hi,

I am trying to trace my Grandfathers family who came >from Essen,
Germany. He was born there on 7.3.1877 in Essen. I have virtually no
other information except that he left there (date unknown) for Britain
where he took British citizenship before immigration to Cape Town
11.4.1903. His father was Uno Fishnu HELLING and his Mother was Maria
(maiden name unknown) Is anyone else tracing this family and is there
any information about them?

Hopefully,
Faye Symington

MODERATOR NOTE; Faye, your first move could be to register the names
and places being searched on the JewishGen Family Finder. Others
can find you there. Good luck!

Finding the missing in 1940 PGS 61A and 81A #general

Carolyn Lea
 

In my previous post I failed to mention that if you do not find your
family where you expect to as you go through an enumeration district be
sure to go to the end and start searching any pages numbered 61A or
later. Enumerators were instructed to list those who were missed on the
first visit on pages numbered 61A, 61B and so on. If there are pages
numbered 81A, 81B and so on you should check there as well. Enumerators
were instructed to list transients on these pages and there was a
special effort made to capture this population. You might also check the
EDs that were designated as separate for the CCC (Civilian Conservation
Corps) if you are looking for a lost, young single man.

See Steve Morse and government sites for additional info:

Dear Fellow Genners,
I want to express my thanks to those who responded to my recent
request! With your help, I have now found a number of my father's
cousin's descendants and have spoken to a couple of them already.
They were very warm, and they welcomed the contact.
I am always amazed at the fantastic research skills of jewishgenners
and the generosity of your willingness to help. I've learned some new
skills >from those of you who responded, and will hopefully be able to
help others as you have helped me.
Sincerely, Carol Hochstadt

Re: Missing people in 1940 Index #general

Carolyn Lea
 

It is far more likely that missing people in 1940 were mistranscribed
than that they were not counted. As Joel Weintraub has posted use the
tools on Steve Morse to locate your family rather than the name index if
you are having difficulty. (Joel was one of the developers).

As far as inaccuracies go - check both Ancestry and FamilySearch. Be
aware that the commercial site is transcribed by outsourced labor - not
familiar with European, etc names - in the belief that non-native
speakers are less likely to make assumptions (and they are not linguists
as someone posted a few weeks back). The non-commercial site used
volunteers - many of whom do research on their own families - who are
more likely to be familiar with naming - especially if they chose to
work on their own state and were familiar with the ethnic names in their
region. They also used two indexers and an arbitrator to help improve
accuracy. Not that this is a guarantee - as an indexer volunteer I
certainly had my share of irritation with incorrect choices made by the
arbitrator - on names I had researched to help determine if the letter
was an "a" or "e" for example. As a result of their 1940 effort they are
reviewing their arbitration process.

Also remember that indexers are not to "correct" names - they are to
transcribe what the enumerator wrote - which is hard to do when you have
found the correct name and fight against your desire to correct the
enumerator's spelling. You can offer alternatives on the commercial site
and the free site has said they hope to have that capability in the future.

Connecticut Cemetery Photo needed #general

Patty Bordman
 

Dear Jenners,
This is a long shot, but one I cannot overlook. I have been unsuccessfully
searching for the descendants of a man who may be my great uncle. On the ship
manifest his name was listed as Wendel SOKOLOWSKY, date of birth about 1882.
I believe, however, that his given name is misspelled. I recently searched
the JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry, and came across a Zundel
SOKOLOWSKY. I may be able to tie Zundel to my family through information
on his headstone. So, if anyone in the New Berlin, Conn., area is able
email a photograph of his headstone to me, I would be most appreciative:
Beth Alom Cemetery, plot N91.
Thanks in advance,
