Gen 101: What to do with SSNs? #general

Micah Salb
 

I have a few relatives for whom I've found Social Security Numbers >from SS Death
Records. But I haven't found any use for these SSNs. How can I use SSNs to
advance to other information, such as place of birth and parent names and
immigration data and so on?

Hello everyone,

I don't know if my problem is unique but I definitely need more ideas of what to
do. I am working on the 1930 census looking for one particular family in Chicago,
Illinois.

Head of household: Morris or Maurice or Jack or Jake or Jacob

Wife: Mildred

Son: Theodore or Ted or Teddy born 1926 in Chicago

Daughter: Trina born 1928 in Chicago

Last name: PERLMAN

I have tried every combination that I know of without any luck. I thought using
the children's name would find the family but has not. I even contacted Ted who
confirmed they were living in Chicago in 1930.

Does anyone have another idea that I could try?

I found Uncle Jack's father, mother, and younger siblings (single) in the 1930
census. But not Jack and Mildred.

Thank for any suggestions.

A few days ago I sent out the website link below which is "Challenge and Change:
Jews in American History". The reason I ended up at this site was that I was
looking for information on Jews who went to farm in Connecticut in the 1890s
supported by the Baron de Hirsch Fund (I believe this is what my pgps did). Well,
ahf tsu loches (pardon the transliteration) that particular link on that page was
no longer functioning. I did manage to track down the author and he is
snailmailing me a copy of what was on that page. Should anyone be interested let
me know (thru a personal e-mail) and I will send you a copy.

Berkowitz from Kiev #ukraine

Ze'ev Sharon <zeevsharon@...>
 

Shalom,

The BERKOWITZ (any spelling) family lived in Lyakhowitch.
Father Yekhiel Zvi and mother Rachell had, so goes the story in the family,
14 children.
5 of them immigrtated to Israel in the first years of the 20th century.
One- Simchalle, died as a child (in Russia).
At some stage, Abraham, the elder son got a special permission to live and
work in Kiev
and moved there with his own family and with his mother and father.
It is possible (or: it makes sense) that he moved with his younger brothers
as well.
Abraham was a timber merchant and perhaps his father worked with him.
Abraham immigrated to Israel in 1925 with his wife Dvonia Dvorah and their 2
children: Arie Loba and Raya Raisa.
Yekhiel Zvi died probably in Kiev.
After his death, Rachell, his wife, immigrated to Israel circa 1920.

We lost traces of the rest of the family who stayed behind in Russia.
They most likely died in the Holocaust.
Since we couldn't find any traces in Lyakhowitz, we assume that perhaps they
perished in Kiev.

Can some of the genners help?

short pieces in various books and one summary on a Bialystok website,
but would very much like to obtain more details. I'm interested in
facts, descriptions and firsthand accounts by witnesses. There seems
to be an extraordinary amount of writing on the Kishinev pogrom three
years earlier, but very little on Bialystok. Can anyone steer me to

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

I have a webpage dedicated to the victims of the 1906 pogrom. Here is a
link, http://www.zabludow.com/bialystokpogromdavidsohn.html

I'm pretty sure there were reports of the pogrom in the press. I don't
know of any first hand accounts.

Family recollections from Bialystok #poland

suprlmn@...
 

Before WW2, our family, SZEJNMAN, lived on Ulica Suiento-Janske, in
Der Nowe, apparently a 'new' suburb of Bialystok, not far >from the
Central Park, according to the map. It was a two story house.
I recall this distinctly because of my mother's telling about the
big Pogrom in 1922, where the Cossaks entered the house and threw her
brother out of a second-story window. He died soon after of multiple
fractures and internal hemorrhage.

I also recall that every Friday afternoon, I would walk with my
grandmother to the baker's. He had already shut down his ovens for
Shabbes but since the heat remained overnight, all the ladies in the
neighborhood would bring him their big, heavy pots of cholent, which
cooked overnight to perfection. Then on Saturday morning, my mother
and I walked to the Shul to pick up my grandmother. On the way home,
we stopped at the baker's to collect our cholent, which was always
our Shabbes noon meal. And was it ever delicious!

At the corner of our street was the Aptek or pharmacist, who always
had candies for me.

Another of my mother's recollections was of her grandmother, Bluma
JASKOLKA, who was very tiny and wiry and was always knitting something
as she walked. On just such a walk, paying no attention to her
whereabouts, she was knocked over and killed by a horse and wagon.

Mama remembered going to high school fairly close by, where she had
to cross a railroad trestle on the way. One day, she and a friend
played hookey >from school in order to watch the new train (a real
novelty then) pass underneath. When it did, it emitted so much
smoke and soot that their faces turned black -- so much for an alibi.

Among other subjects, she studied Latin, French and German, and quickly
picked up all the neighboring Slavik tongues. She used to sing me
lullabies in Latin and French, as well as Yiddish, Polish and
Russian.

I have a number of issues of 'Bialystoker Vegn,' published in Buenos
Airies, and also 'Der Bialystoker Stimme,' published by the Bialystoker
Home in New York. I plan to upload some of the articles to the web site
soon. The ones >from Argentina are in Yiddish and Spanish, while the NY
ones are in Yiddish and English. Expect some photos as well in the near
future.
