Searching for SCHWED connections #general

prayerboy@juno.com <prayerboy@...>
 

I am following some clues to connect to possible relatives of my SCHWED heritage.
If any of these names are familiar to you, would you please contact me directly.
All are connected to New York City.

Mayer Schwed, born around 1838, married to Mary They had a son Phillip, b. 1864,
d. 11/16/23, married to Martha or Bertha They had a son Lawrence, b. 22 Mar 1891,
d. 7/66, married to Milly They had two sons, Langdon and Warren, both possibly
served in WWII...and that is where my search grows cold.

If I have my facts straight, my ggf Joseph Schwed was somehow connected to Mayer,
according to his naturalization petition card.

Thank you,

Todd Frederick

Re: New York Public Library - research advice #general

Erika Herzog
 

As someone who lives in New York I have found this thread truly amazing and very
helpful. I wonder if this great advice is compiled anywhere as a FAQ?

And as a fledgling librarian, I want to emphasize that it is really prudent and
important to contact the librarians ahead of time so that you can maximize your
research time at the library. Especially coming >from out of time specifically to do
research on these areas, I think that pre-visit contact will reduce a lot of
frustrations.

Great thread!

Family Missing from 1911 Census #general

Moragaf@...
 

Hello

Wonder if anyone can give me any hints or tips where I go now.

My great grandfather was a Joseph Goldman. My Grandmother was born in
Northumberland, Newcastle upon Tyne in January 1909. Registered as Fanny Cameron
Goldman (although she was known as Frances and that name is on her marriage
certificate). He was a commercial traveller. I have searched the entire UK census
for 1911 and the whole family seems to have vanished. I know nothing else about
him other than his wife was Dolina and he was deceased by the time my grandmother
married in 1930.

Many thanks

Pogrebishche Jewish Cemetery #ukraine

Joshua Skarf <jskarf@...>
 

I have finished uploading 600+ images of about 380 tombstones in the old Pogrebishche Jewish cemetery online.

I created a google account called "A. Pogrebishche" for the purpose of sharing these images.

Anyone who is interested in seeing them should send an email to pogrebishchejewishcemetery@...
and ask to have the album shared with them. I will then add your email address to the list of people who have
access to the album. This will also help create a list of people researching Pogrebishche.

Each photo has a caption, which you can see on the right side of the screen if viewing it in slideshow mode.
The caption is in the format A-001, A-002, etc. (we took pictures in four areas, which I called A, B, C, and D).

If there are more than one photo of a given headstone, they will be labeled as A-001a, A-001b, etc. It is possible that

I failed to notice that two photos were of the same tombstone, in which case please let me know and I'll adjust the captions.

In addition to the photos themselves, I have used the cemetery project's standard spreadsheet as the basis for a spreadsheet for
these tombstones. I started filling it out but realized that I needed help. Therefore, anyone who emails me will also get access
to the spreadsheet online, using google drive, and if you decipher some tombstones, I ask that you update the spreadsheet
so that others can see the information as well. Once the spreadsheet is filled out, we can submit it to be part of the searchable
database online.

Many of the tombstones are either illegible or broken. Some have writing in Hebrew and some in Russian. I tried to note this on
the spreadsheet. Sometimes manipulating the contrast and brightness of an image in photoshop helps make the writing more legible. 

Please be patient, I will try to check the email account once a day and share with people accordingly.

Sincerely,

Josh Skarf
Pogrebishche Town Leader

On a Lodz ghetto work identification card, what would "A.A.
Einsatzgruppe vom 05-Apr-1944" mean (in the far right column, titled
work history)?

Thanks,

Hello--it has come to my attention (thank you, Freda!) that the first
of the two links I gave below actually goes to an 1877 record >from
Kalisz that is in *Russian*, not actually in Polish! I have updated the
online request to reflect the actual language. Thank you to whoever can
translate that for me!

Hi! This is my first time posting documents for translation.
I've got two to start out with. The first is the birth record for my
great-grandfather (my namesake) in Kalisz, Dawid Wolf Perle.
The second is his parents' marriage record. I would love full
translations if possible;I'm quite curious what information these full
paragraphs contain! Also, you never know what clues they may contain in
helping to unlock other doors in searching for family information.
Thanks so much!

Oh, and if anyone can help with Russian and might e-mail me, I have
another record in Russian for Lithuania, but I'll skip posting the link
here, to keep things more on-topic.
