....you will need to complain to the USBS - and not me please. Evidently,
they didn't send any of their own staff to open up. I was helping out at
Plashet !

According to their schedule that they sent me - (I put out a message a
couple of weeks ago telling of this) - for this time of year including today,
both the two major (closed) east of London cemeteries - WH and PL - should
have been open between 10 and 2pm.

Hopefully, both will be on the 9th and on the 16th - but check with the
USBS first before you attempt to go.

Re: jcr-uk digest: August 30, 2012 Goldman Family #unitedkingdom

Jensen, Ann <alazarsfeld-jensen@...>
 

The name Goldman appeared on my family tree. The theatrical entrepreneur Emanuel
Warner (aka Lazarsfeld) married a Margrete Goldman and they lived in a house
called Beryldene at 263 Golbourne Terrace, Hampstead. Emanuel was involved with
his father-in-law's business and was arrested and held as a enemy alien for the
duration of the first world war, and died in Switzerland supposedly on his way
home. This story is rather tragic as he was the only member of his family born in
England rather than Austria. He had three young children and I have not succeeded
in tracing what happened to the family after the war.

Aaron GOLDMAN, London #unitedkingdom

Albert Braunstein
 

It has come to my attention that I made an error in the earlier post
about the GOLDMAN family regarding my source for the date of death of
Aaron GOLDMAN.

In fact, Aaron GOLDMAN's death is not listed on the Jewish Worldwide
Burial Registry (JOWBR). However, I did a search on the UK database on
JewishGen and found his Edmonton cemetery record among the JGSGB
records. The plot number is T55
http://search.jgsgb.org.uk/alluk/buriald.asp?br=367385

It is strange that his death is listed here but not on the JOWBR

Someone has found a tailor named Aaron GOLDMAN living at 48 British
St, Bow, London E3 in the 1938 English phone book.
However, in the 1940 directory only his wife Esther is listed as
living at that address. Where could Aaron have disappeared to?
He lived for another 17 years.

Re: Moshe REITBERGER who lived in Israel #general

I have personally thanked those researchers who responded to my recent
request for information.

Moshe REITBERGER lived on Kibbutz Lohamei Hagetaot and the kibbutz has
a memorial page for him. It is in Hebrew of course, and my own Hebrew is
insufficient to translate. Google Translate gave me a rather crude translation.

Would anyone be willing to provide a better translation of the memorial
page? I can send you the Google translation to make it
easier and faster.

Thank you so much.

Take a look at HistoryGeo.com a (commercial) family history site that

US land maps: http://www.historyGeo.com .

You are able to search by surname for free and see results for any
land maps on which these names are present along with a thumbnail of
the map. Clicking on the maps provides more details plus a list of
other surnames appearing on the map. Their interface (if you
subscribe) shows a list of indexed names and when you click on the
name the exact location of the land plot is shown by a dot on the
screen. This resource provides the level of annotation referred to
earlier and is something we'd eventually like to duplicate in the
Galician maps, but it is the result of specific software developed by
HistoryGeo.

I have no connection with this service, but find it an interesting
addition to the US genealogical research scene.

If you think your relatives bought or owned US land, you can also
search the records of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for free
here:

http://www.glorecords.blm.gov/search/default.aspx

They provide live access to Federal land conveyance records for the
Public Land States, including image access to more than five million
Federal land title records issued between 1820 and the present. We
also have images related to survey plats and field notes, dating back
to 1810. The HistoryGeo site is a complementary resource in that they
provide a greater level of detail in their maps, but searching first
on the BLM site is a good start. Many Jewish immigrants had land
grants throughout the United States and you might be surprised at some
of the results that come up >from your searching.

New Project - Russian Jewish Fallen Soldiers of WW1 #belarus

Joel Ratner
 

Lists of Russian casualties >from WWI have become available for the years 1914
1916. This project endeavors to create databases containing the names
of Jewish soldiers and all pertinent information and make them available
to the Jewish genealogical community. It is not yet known if additional lists
covering the rest of 1916 through 1918 will be scanned and made available

Although there are over 50,000 pages of records many of them contain no
names identified in the records as being Jewish. Many of the gubernias also
did not have the sizeable Jewish populations prevalent in others. For gubernias
with sizable numbers of Jews the ratio of non-Jewish to Jewish soldiers
listed is still rather large. The bottom line here is this project
is not that large for any one SIG as the Jewish soldiers listed (estimated
amount to a few to possibly a few thousand for the largest Jewish areas
Gubernii which represent Polish areas are included in these listings.

The lists obtained so far are contained in over 60 books most of which are
over 300 pages each. The lists were compiled by gubernia with each list
containing an issue number.

The following fields are contained in the records:
Family Name
Given Name
Patronymic
Rank
Religion
Marital Status
Gubernia (where the list was compiled)
Uyezd (district where soldier originated)
Town (town where soldier originated)
Status
Date

The project has been organized in an open format. The idea is to make the
template available to anyone interested in working on records. The lists will
also be made available to those signing up and the desire is that SIGs will
establish groups to work on records for their gubernias of interest
ultimately uploading them to JewishGen for dissemination. It will be up to
the SIGs or other groups to enlist individuals capable of properly working
with these records. The good news regarding these lists is they were printed
and are not handwritten making the work much easier.

A template established for this project has fields for all data contained
in the original records plus a comments column to allow for notes.
The first records have been translated for Bessarabia courtesy of Yefim
Kogan. A sample of these translations is contained in the template.
Obtaining access to the records

It is the hope that each SIG will assign a coordinator(s) and they should j
join the Yahoo Group =93Russian Jewish Fallen Soldiers of WWI=94. This group
has been formed to bring together individuals and groups interested in
participating. The template as well as links to the records will be available
on the site. It is anticipated a spreadsheet may be developed to track who
has signed up to work on records and prevent duplication of effort. If a SIG
signs up to coordinate activity for all records for an entire gubernia or
gubernii the project will be greatly simplified. Beyond providing the
template and access to the records the SIGs or other interested groups
will manage finding their volunteers gathering and proofing the translation
ns once completed and submitting to JewishGen for upload.

Although there are over 50,000 pages of records many of them contain no
names identified in the records as being Jewish. Many of the gubernias also
did not have the sizeable Jewish populations prevalent in others. For gubernias
with sizable numbers of Jews the ratio of non-Jewish to Jewish soldiers
listed is still rather large. The bottom line here is this project
is not that large for any one SIG as the Jewish soldiers listed (estimated
amount to a few to possibly a few thousand for the largest Jewish areas
Gubernii which represent Polish areas are included in these listings.

The lists obtained so far are contained in over 60 books most of which are
over 300 pages each. The lists were compiled by gubernia with each list
containing an issue number.

The following fields are contained in the records:
Family Name
Given Name
Patronymic
Rank
Religion
Marital Status
Gubernia (where the list was compiled)
Uyezd (district where soldier originated)
Town (town where soldier originated)
Status
Date

The project has been organized in an open format. The idea is to make the
template available to anyone interested in working on records. The lists will
also be made available to those signing up and the desire is that SIGs will
establish groups to work on records for their gubernias of interest
ultimately uploading them to JewishGen for dissemination. It will be up to
the SIGs or other groups to enlist individuals capable of properly working
with these records. The good news regarding these lists is they were printed
and are not handwritten making the work much easier.

A template established for this project has fields for all data contained
in the original records plus a comments column to allow for notes.
The first records have been translated for Bessarabia courtesy of Yefim
Kogan. A sample of these translations is contained in the template.
Obtaining access to the records

It is the hope that each SIG will assign a coordinator(s) and they should j
join the Yahoo Group =93Russian Jewish Fallen Soldiers of WWI=94. This group
has been formed to bring together individuals and groups interested in
participating. The template as well as links to the records will be available
on the site. It is anticipated a spreadsheet may be developed to track who
has signed up to work on records and prevent duplication of effort. If a SIG
signs up to coordinate activity for all records for an entire gubernia or
gubernii the project will be greatly simplified. Beyond providing the
template and access to the records the SIGs or other interested groups
will manage finding their volunteers gathering and proofing the translation
ns once completed and submitting to JewishGen for upload.
