Where is the town Kram. Ludowski? #lithuania

Shosh Kalson <shoshkalson@...>
 

We have found the marriage record for one of my husband's ancestors.
Recorded in Wladyslawow in 1811 (thank you Landsmen). According to the
extracted index, he was born in Kram. Ludowski.

We've googled as well as checked the JewishGen town finder. We've also
checked "Where Once Walked."

Does anybody have any ideas?

Thanks,

Shoshana Kalson

Personal research in the LVIA #lithuania

Shosh Kalson <shoshkalson@...>
 

Hi,

I am working on a number of surnames connected to my husband's family in
Lithuania and have compiled a list of many (hundreds) birth, death and
marriage records in which I am interested. Some are available online
(free) but many have not been filmed and are available only via the
archives.

In the past, I have ordered records >from the archives, but that can get
pretty expensive. I'm starting to think that it might make more sense to
go to Vinius and retrieve them myself.

Has anybody else gone and done direct research in the archives? What was
your experience?

Thanks,
Shoshana Kalson

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Most Lithuanian Jewish vital records have been
translated by LitvakSIG, with full translations available either
on the All Lithuania Database or on the sites of LitvakSIG's
District Research Groups.

Ukraine town Latnowetz? #general

David Goldman
 

Greetings. I was looking over my great-grandparents record of naturalization
in Canada in 1921 and their application stated that they were >from "Latnowetz,
Kaminetz Podolsk" in "Russia." However I now know they originated in Zinkovetz and
Butsnevtsy. However, I have no idea what Latnowetz refers to, why they would have
written that name, or whether Canadian immigration would have made a mistake.
