RE: Certificate of Naturalization, etc.

Having found the 1st Papers (Intention), Petition for Citizenship, and final
Certificate -- all executed after 1910 -- in a County Clerk's Office in New
York State, I believe that certain Clerk's Offices are more diligent in
retaining their County Judges' records as well as sending it to the Federal
Agencies for repository. So that as late as 1926 my grandfather and father
each and severally received their certificates at a County venue. Maybe
smaller jurisdictions had at the time Less of a storage problem than the
larger municipal courts? Anyway, with patience and according respect to our
municipal keepers of records, papers get filed correctly, found and even
copies for our inquisitive genealogists.

Aliyah Bet Ships #general

Joseph Fibel <JFibel@...>
 

Dear Genners,

Meir Gover, wrote asking about records of the ships coming into Israel
apparently before and after the declaration of the State of Israel.

In addition to the book(let) by Paul Silverstone, a marine historian, titled
Clandestine Immigration to Palestine 1938-1948,
there are two additional books that discuss this subject. The first of these
is by Mordechai Naor called Haapala-Clandestine Immigration, 1931-1948. This
book was published by the Ministry of Defence Publishing House and IDF
Museum. A third Book called The Jews Secret Fleet discusses the same
subject with specific reference to the American effort and involvement of
this illegal immigration (declared so after WW II by the British.)

Paul Silverstone may have additional copies of his book. I obtained my
copies of the other books in Haifa at the Museumn of Illegal Immigration I
doubt that the second of these is available in the U S. The third one may
be.

I am interested in the subject because cousins came to Israel in 1948, on
the Altalena also arrive there a few days after the State had been declared.

Re: ANY POZNANSKIS? #poland

Bialystoker
 

Karyn has been very active with BIALYGen. At the Ceremony commemorating
the 62nd Anniversary of the Bialystok Ghetto Uprising and the subsequent
liquidation, Karyn represented all American Jews with roots in
Bialystok. Her personal observations can be found on the website at
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/62Memorial.htm.

BIALYGen will have a meeting at the IAJGS Conference in New York. We
hope to see many of you there. Information about the Conference can be

Dear BialyGen readers:

I am a new reader on the site and am lookiing forward to meeting as many
of you as possible this summer in New York.

My name is Karyn Posner, but I learned about 2 years ago that my family
had emigrated >from Bialystok to New York in about 1904-05 and that my name
is actually Poznanski. My paternal grandfather, Jacob Posner (Poznanski)
was one of 12 siblings -- 6 brothers and 6 sisters. I have a sketchy family
tree, and found one of his sisters, Rosa Poznanski, emigrated on the
ship ROTTERDAM on Aug 30, 1904. It would be wonderful to know if any of you
have Posner or Poznanski in your own family trees.

I've had a very interesting time researching all this, as I currently
live in Budapest, Hungary (I am an American diplomat at the Embassy), and
being in Central Europe has made it very easy for me to get to Poznan, Lodz,
Warsaw and, of course, Bialystok -- the latter several times. I have
been in touch with Mark Halpern, who has been wonderful, as well as met with
Lucy several times. She is the Bialystoker who is working hard to rehabiliate
the cemetery there, as well as make sure the City remembers its Jewish
citizens. I participated in the very moving ceremony that Bialystok
held on Aug 16, 2005 to commemorate the 62nd anniversary of the ghetto
uprising. Lucy was very involved in making that happen.

I wish all of you Shanah Tovah!

Sincerely,
Karyn Posner

Re: Russian revision lists for Bialystok, Bielsk and Sokolka #poland

Bialystoker
 

Dear BIALYGenners:

Mark Gordon described his experience with the State Archives of Belarus
in Grodno. Although I have never had any research perfomed by the
Archive, I have heard many stories about people receiving some good
information, but still feeling that more information was available.
I also recall that all these people never received copies of the actual
records.

A few years ago, I wrote to the Grodno Archive asking what information
was available for one of my ancestral towns east of Bialystok. I did
not send in the required $80 research fee and, not surprisingly,
received no reply.

When BIALYGen was started, we came to an agreement with the then leader
of Belarus SIG to coordinate all Grodno research with them. This
cooperation was rewarded with the extraction of remaining fragments of
the 1897 All Russian Census for all Grodno Uyezds. We were very pleased
and continued to discuss our desire to index/extract information from
the Revision Lists housed at the Grodno Archive.

Then earlier this year, the founder and coordinator of Belarus SIG
retired. At this time, there is no leader/coordinator of the Belarus
SIG. BIALYGen is now looking for a private researcher who is willing to
index some of the Revision lists held at the Grodno Archive. If anyone
knows of such a person, please email me privately.

Joan Goldstein inquired yesterday about Russian revision lists for
Bialystok, Bielsk and Sokolka uyezds in the Belarus Archives.

Nine years ago, in response to a written letter to the Archives, I
received
an extract typed in Russian (not a copy) of a family listing in the 1855
Census of Jewish residents for Bielsk Podlaski. This was a very useful
record, since it expanded my Chrabolowski (changed to Gordon) ancestry
back
two more generations to about 1765. The Archives noted that this was
the
only record in their collection for my family -- a statement that seemed
unlikely to be accurate.

The town of Slipia?? #poland

Judith GOLDSTEIN <parant3@...>
 

Need help - my cousin tells me our family was >from Slipia which is
somewhere near Lodz. I have looked at maps - I can find Sliepia( there
are a couple of these with a second name attached) or Slupia which I don't
think is in the right place. She also told me that, in Israel, she found
it listed as Slipia Nuevo.

Has anyone hear of Slipia or can you clarify?

Thanks very much

Lublin Area Update #poland

RobinnM@...
 

Dear fellow researchers:

It's been a busy year for Jewish Records Indexing - Poland, and a long
time since I've provided you with an update on the Lublin Area projects.
Here is a summary of where we are on the project to create an index of all
towns with Jewish vital records kept in the Lublin Branch of the Polish
State Archives.

We have raised over $28,000 which has paid for projects in 35 towns.
The Zamosc PSA project overlaps the Lublin PSA project, which means that
another 25 towns have had projects that are almost completed. Therefore,
60 towns in the Lublin area have now been at least partly indexed through
JRI-Poland PSA projects! Incredible!

1) I've updated the Lublin Area Surname Spreadsheet which shows the number
of occurrences of each surname in each town which have completed PSA
projects. Reviewing this EXCEL spreadsheet may give you an idea of
additional towns to search your family names in. The spreadsheet also
indicates which of this information is on-line on the JRI-Poland database,
and which projects are not yet fully funded. I'm happy to send you the
spreadsheet if you write me and ask for it. Please mention the what town
you are primarily interested in. It may help me to help you a bit further.

2) We have seven projects for which we have recently retrieved additional
late 19th century data >from Poland, and which will be added to the
JRI-Poland database when we raise the funds to pay for their development.
If you are interested in supporting one of the following projects, please
contact me immediately. Each town (except Krasnik) has a qualifying
amount of $100, which means that donations of any size are greatly
appreciated, but if you can make a donation of $100 or more to JRI-Poland
for one of these towns ($50 for Krasnik), you would be eligible to receive
your own copy of the spreadsheet data once you sign a database sharing
agreement. The towns and the amount of money we need to raise are:

Biskupice (Target: $550)
Josefow nad Wisla (Target:$900)
Kock (Target: $950)
Krasnik (Target: $600)
Kurow (Target: $1050, Raised $550 so far)
Pulawy (Target: $1000, Raised $800 so far)
Terespol (Target: $1350)

3) There are many Lublin Shtetl CO-OP projects in process. Some are
still waiting for volunteers to step forward and type or proofread other
typists' work. Some are waiting for volunteers who can read Russian
Cyrillic. Still others need proofreading. If you are able to lead a
new project, please contact me immediately, as there are volunteer
waiting for me to organize them, and I've been too busy to be responsive.
Project coordinators would be greatly appreciated!

4) In addition, there are still 6 or 7 Lublin area towns which do not
have Shtetl CO-OP Projects. If you are interested in one of the
following towns, please contact me:

Glusk
Janow Podlaski
Janowiec
Kamionka
Lubartow
Zaklikow

There are many other Lublin area projects in the works. I didn't want to
make this note any longer, but if you have an interest in a Lublin area
town that I have not mentioned, please contact me if you'd like an update.

Again, please remember that if you'd like a copy of the new Lublin Area
Surname Frequency Spreadsheet, just contact me. Please remember to tell
me what towns and surnames you're interested in. I'm happy to help you
as much as time allows me to.

Very best wishes for the New Year!

There are many other Lublin area projects in the works. I didn't want to
make this note any longer, but if you have an interest in a Lublin area
town that I have not mentioned, please contact me if you'd like an update.

Again, please remember that if you'd like a copy of the new Lublin Area
Surname Frequency Spreadsheet, just contact me. Please remember to tell
me what towns and surnames you're interested in. I'm happy to help you
as much as time allows me to.

Very best wishes for the New Year!

I have a copy of a 1920's photo album >from my family in Kamencha, Ukraine.
Many of the photos have writing on the back in Yiddish and Russian. I've
posted some of the backs of the photos on Viewmate and I would very much
appreciate translation help >from anyone who speaks Yiddish and/or Russian.
The photos can be seen at Viewmate #'s 7007 - 7011.

Thank you.
