Dear Genners,
For a friend whose family came >from the Minsk area, can anyone tell me
where the town of Barisowska was? I don't find it in "Where Once We Walked",
although it did list "Borisovka".

Thank you!

85 Ridge St, is in New York ED 283
I found the street and the building on Ancestry using Steve Morse One
Step ED finder, and on Family Search
If you search 1900 NY census on Family Search for Herman Pfeffer, spouse
Lena, you should come up on the right page.

I searched the 1905 NY Census for 85 Ridge Street and located it (AD 12 ED 6
Images 14-20), but did not find anything close to this name.

I don't get any matches when searching this name. What variations might I try?

I searched on *dorf in Manhattan to see what sound-alike names might
turn up..... The closest were things like Chillendorf Killendorff
Kimmedorf Lamesdorf Landendorf Lamensdorf Seckendorf Schoendorf
Sickendorf Stahlendorf Sussendorf Uhlandorf Vettendorf Weinsdorf
...... "Lamensdorf" seemed like a good bet.

Is there a way to find "85 Ridge Street, Manhattan NY" in the 1900 Census????

I appreciate any tips you can offer.

Hello,

I've uploaded two pictures taken in Krakow after WWII.

information about her will be appreciated.

And this picture at

Krakow sometime 1945-1950. Does anyone know her name and what happened to

Postcards from the Past #general

Bob Fitterman
 

I have a large collection of family photos, most of which are well
documented. Some of them, however, have been a mystery for over 50
years, since I first encountered them. In October 2015 I had a major
breakthrough, discovering some things about a couple photos which then
led me to other genealogical discoveries. The process was so
eye-opening that I decided to document my experience and discoveries.
The video, which I have titled "Postcards >from the Past" is available
on Youtube: https://youtu.be/JLQdIoIKpuw

I want to thank the resources that JewishGen provided. It definitely
helped me establish some of the facts of my search and led me to
people who could supply additional guidance.

The video is about Kosow Poleski, Poland aka Kosova, Russia (before
WWI) aka Kosava, Belarus (today)
The video deals with these family names: Rubinovitz (also spelled
Rubinowicz, Rabinowitz and Robinovits) and Wegodsky.

There was (and still is) Chodaczow near Lancut and a small village

new Ukrainian name.
