Request for Queens County, NY researcher #general

Gail Patterson
 

Queens County NY Property Records:
SCHOTOFF/FEINGOLD/FELDSTEIN/SUTTON families apparently occupied
two/three separate residences 11691-11693 Far Rockaway, Queens County,
NY, circa 1974-1999. I believe "SCHOTOFF"surname was originally
"FEINGOLD" >from Minsk.

Can property records, available only through personal research at Queens
County Courthouse, be the key to resolving this issue?

Will pay reasonable rate for research and transportation costs. Please
contact me privately for further details.

Re: Manifest for Schewel HANELUN #general

Alan Shuchat
 

The brother's name might be some version of Peleg. I tried searching for names
like Hanelun on stevemorse.org but didn't come up with anything that begin
with P. If you know the town (hard to read >from the manifest), you could
search for arrivals >from that town.

From: Liz Hanellin <liz_hanellin@...>
...
I am looking at my g-grandfather's manifest on the Ellis Island website. His
name is listed as Schewel HANELUN (line 27) and he arrived with one of his
sons, listed as Moses (line 28), on the Vaderland (which sailed >from Antwerp)
on November 10, 1903. The manifest says that Schewel (aka Sol) is coming to
his brother -- but the brother's name is completely unintelligible to me. If
anyone is able and willing to take a look and let me know what you think it
says, I'd be very grateful.

Re: Ukraine SIG Town Pages and the MNI #ukraine

Ariel Parkansky
 

Hi Steve,


The MNI is an index generated by the Ukraine SIG for records sent to JewishGen for their inclusion on the JG Ukraine database (JGUD).
The objective is to have a quick view of names related to a specific town without creating a huge database containing the full records.

As the process of inclusion of the records on the JGUD take some time, it could be possible that some records on the MNI are not yet available on the JGUD. In fact, there's even a note in the MNI page informing that.


In some other cases, the type of records indexed are not accepted by JewishGen (like indexation of kehilalinks websites) and therefore are not available in the JGUD.

Anyway, when you enter a MNI record by clicking the magnifying glass icon, you can see a lot of information (as a minimum the source of the information and, when it is available online, a direct link to the source).
In the case of the 4 Kupel records, you can see the type of record (two different death records with the corresponding related persons), the origin of the record (SAVO Fond 905 Opis 99-138 delo 13), as well as the names of the persons, the related persons and the related places.


Both for the death of Basya and Reisya, you see in the Record comments "Cause of Death: Maladies / Comments: Kupel society", so it is clear why the record appears on the Kupel Town page.
Regards,
Ariel Parkansky

Some time ago, I assumed the role of Town Leader for Kupel, in
Starokonstantinov district. There has not been much activity there, since
there are not any records currently available. So I was puzzled by the link
on the Town page for the "Master Name Index" (MNI) which brings up 4 "hits"
that are actually cross-references to records >from another town that happens
to mention Kupel.

Another researcher for Kupel asked me about it and I couldn't provide a
satisfactory answer. I can't seem to find a good explanation for what this
database is and how it is updated. The 4 records that I get don't seem to be
on the JewishGen Ukraine database, and the links point me back to the Town
page.

Can someone explain what the purpose of this database is and how it is
populated? And how I get to the records? Thanks.

Re: Jewish Photographers in Belarus, late-19th to early-20th centuries #belarus

JHRG of Belarus <belshtetl@...>
 

Dear All,

During the second half of the 19th-century, photography became very popular
in the Russian Empire. New photography studios were opening in the large
cities. As in other businesses, Jews became active in this new field.

About half of all photo studios in the Pale of Settlement, belonged to Jews
in the early 20th-century.

Here is the list of the 40 largest Jewish-owned photo studios, 1897-1904 in
the towns and shtetls of Belarus:

Reminder of Importance of Photographing Memorial Plaques in Synagogues #general

Merle Kastner <merlebk18@...>
 

Referring to Nolan Altman's message - (please see below) as to why it is
necessary to photograph the Memorial Plaques as soon as possible:

The Young Israel of Chomedey (a formerly very active synagogue in one of
Montreal's suburbs), sold the building and moved into a temporary location
for the exact reason that Nolan Altman cited on the JG discussion list
recently - dwindling membership in synagogues. The Jewish community in that
suburb has shifted considerably and synagogue attendance and membership have
declined even more. Now the plaques are packed away somewhere.
