Record in Lithuanian State Historical Archives #general

Sharon Korn <s.r.korn@...>
 

After writing to this group twice recently with questions about my
great-grandfather's name, I was lucky enough to find a record I believe is
for him in the All Lithuania Database. I think I saw this record in the
past when searching for the family, but I didn't make the connection. The
person named in the record was buried in Telsiai, but his children were born
in and immigrated >from Gargzdai, so I thought he had to be a different
person with the same name. When my great-grandmother immigrated as a widow
the year after the death, the manifest said she was born and last resided in
Telschie (same city as Telsiai), but I thought the reference was to the
uyezd, even though the manifest called for the city to be listed. I should
not have assumed!

I have contacted the Lithuanian State Historical Archives and intend to send
payment (58 litas or 18 euros) for the record. In 2013, someone posted a
suggestion to this discussion group that money should be sent through
Western Union online. I have checked the website, and they still send money
to Lithuania. I don't know whether I will get any information other than
what is in ALD, but the cost seems reasonable for a foreign record, so I am
willing to give it a try.

Thank you again to all the people who helped me with my questions.

Do you have any records for Mielec, Galicia for the period
1870 to 1910 and if so how can I access them?

Newark, NJ Old Cemetery Records #general

Rusty Wilson
 

Does anyone know if records still exist for any of the old and
inactive Newark cemeteries? I'm interested primarily in the Grove
Street cemetery. Were the original cemetery records transferred to
the public library, or a government agency, or some other
organization? Or just destroyed or lost?

Re: Julian/Julijan #general

Jim Bennett
 

My own great great grandfather was Julius Salomonsohn, born in
Lobsens[then Posen Province, Prussia--now part of Northwest Poland].
His grandson was named Julian in his memory. So my mother Shirley
was Shirley/Sara bat Julian.

A few years ago in the Polish Archives branch in Bydgoszcz, in the
files of the Jewish Community of Lobzenica, I found records of school
enrollments of Jewish children Recorded in the 1830-1840 period. And
there was my gg grandfather Juda son of Michael Salomonsohn.

No now, in synagogue, when we recite memorial prayers I can now say --
after 30 years of searching--"My mother, my teacher Sara bat Yehuda".

Jews whose civil name in Europe was Julian, were almost always born as
Yehuda=Juda.

19th century travel to America #general

Eva Lawrence
 

I have the travel diary of an ancestor who sailed to New Orleans >from Bonn
via Antwerp in 1852, together with his 11-year-old son. While apparently
they travelled without a passport or other papers, he does comment on
customs officials who stopped them at each border and examined the luggage,
and also seems to have been afraid of being arrested on leaving Baden - he
was known to have been associated with dissidents and can't have had
official permission to leave. In Weffer's 1977 book of 19th-century Bonn
emigrants, there is note of a 1868 Coeln official advertisement seeking the
son for evading his Prussian military duties. However, the father's
equally illegal emigration and his subsequent return appears to have
remained unrecorded.

Master Genealogist Genealogy Software to be Discontinued #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

On July 29 it was announced that The Master Genealogist (TMG)
software it will be discontinued at the end of 2014 after being
in the market for 25 years. It will continue to sell the full
product and updates through September. It is expected that
support will be maintained as will the support forum which would
be available for user-to-user support. According to the
announcement, this was done for two reasons: the market for
advanced features has proved to be insufficient to support the
infrastructure that is necessary to support it and continue
development; and health issues of Bob Welke, owner of Wholly
Genes, the producer of TMG.

Dear Genners,
There is one more answer to those who wondered whether it was
customary to eat fish on Friday.night. This is an article that
was written in the Jewish Heritage Online Magazine.
Quite enlightening.
