Re: (France )FamilySearch and Paris Archives Digitize Reconstitute4d Parish and Civil Registrations Pre 1860 #france

Dear fellow researchers,

Good news about the ability to view the actual vital records, which I
have been scouring since announcement.

As fate would have it, one of my ancestors is on a partially missing
roll. Her date of birth, 24 May 1849, is not on Roll 1181066. Although
Family Search identifies this roll as "Naissances 10-26 Mai 1849," the
roll contains births >from 10 to 23 May 1849.

The subsequent Roll 1181067 is identified as "Naissances 27 Mai-7 Juin
1849," but actually contains births >from 25 May to 7 June.

Has anyone found births for 24 May 1849?

I shall write to Family Search about this matter. I imagine similar
issues will arise as we start scouring the images.

Best regards,

Amos ZEZMER

Re: Strategy for locating ancestor's siblings? #general

Phyllis Kramer
 

Debbie Terman asked an excellent question about finding siblings.

And yes, there are a few items you can check, starting with siblings
of immigrants (assuming you have found the town of origin...almost
impossible if you can only narrow to a country).
first, the census...they tended to live nearby...look thru the
neighboring pages next, try to find similar surnames coming >from the
same town.
...you can do this fairly easily on ellis island via stevemorse.org
...and the WWII draft via ancestry..also allows you to query the town.
...you can also search the common cemeteries for landsmanshaften
FamilySearch has transcribed the parents on many publically available
birth and marriage records; this might help speed up the research
Ancestry, familysearch, myheritage and JewishGen's FTJP allow you to
search family trees limited to town of origin.

On any country database, if you have a surname that has various
spellings, use the soundex along with the town of origin. For
JRI-Poland, get the latitude/longitude of the town >from the JewishGen
community page and look for same surnames with 10-15 miles of your
town of origin. Gesher Galicia allows you to search using the town
name and a distance >from it.That narrows common surname queries.

When you check JGFF, copy down the district/uzed >from the JewishGen
community page and have the list of neighboring towns handy, so you
don't limit yourself to the one town they came from. You can also
hover over the JewishGen icon and see the district each town was part
of.

Make up a simple descendant tree with the immigrant ... you'll know
the fathers name >from the tombstone...to send along to others
researching the same town saves a lot of explanation in your note to
fellow 'genners.

Hope this helps

Re: Hebrew name #hungary

stephen@...
 

Tom Klein's previous comment is mostly correct, except that in selecting
a Hebrew name it was generally the custom to name the child after a
deceased grandparent. If grandparents were still living then other names
were selected. The same applied where there were large number of
children in the family. Sometimes there was a logic to the name
selection, such as other deceased relatives, favorite relatives, rich
relatives, etc. It's good to be aware of this custom, as it can help
establish a family relationship or to work out a grandparent's name.

Mary Ellen,
If you haven't already done so, please use the Town Finder or Jewish Gazetteer
tools. I had a similar situation regarding my grandmother's birthplace and found
some candidates for the town. After some trial and error, I found the right
location, so this may confirm the Google result or be more accurate than a
general search engine.

Re: Getting US Phone Numbers #general

Stacye <FernsAndNettles@...>
 

My only suggestion is this ...

You could handwrite letters to the areas local synagogues or Jewish
Community Center and inquire as to whether they could pass on your
letter if they know the person / family you are seeking ... They
would do so in my very large Jewish Community here in Norfolk area ..
can't speak for others ....

Stacye Mehard
Norfolk, Virginia

From: Meron Lavie <lavie@netvision.net.il>

I have finally managed to track down some long lost distant relatives.
However, getting their phone numbers seems next to impossible. Web searches
turn up the usual suspects (spokeo, whitepages, peoplefinder, etc.), but the
numbers are always disconnected or so old that the present owner of the
number has never heard of the people I'm asking for.

Any suggestions?
