Re: Request for assistance with ship manifest information #general

I have been asked to provide a link to the manifest at the Ellis Island
site, and that link is below. It may need to be pasted into the browser as
it wraps. The page is 0806, line 9.

I have found my grandparents listed on a ship manifest on the Ellis Island
site, and I am hoping that someone can assist me with some location
information I found there.

1) The manifest says that my grandfather's last permanent residence was
"Wischewetz". I believe that he was born in Rovno, although he gave his
place of birth as Volynhia on his SS-5, and I believe my grandmother to have
been >from Berdischev.

The closest phonetic match to Wischewetz that I have found in the
ShtetlSeeker database was Vichevitsy but that is not in Ukraine. Can anyone
suggest what this town may have been?

2) In the space asking for the name and complete address of the nearest
relative in the country >from which the alien came is what appears to be:

Wolf Weinstein
Berdisijeff Figcluajn afl. Kievskaja ged

Wolf Weinstein was my grandfather's father, and I am assuming that the next
line indicates he was in Berdichev, Kievskaya Gubernia, but if anyone can
help me understand what I am seeing, I would very appreciative - especially
since I am expecting to see Wolf in Rovno, not in Berdichev.

Thanks

Try looking at free indexes for the census at USGENWEB. Also, you can try
accessing NCLive through one of the local libraries and look through the
available census images there.

Think about handwriting and how the letters maybe read incorrectly. Gerber
could be Genben, Genber, Gerben, Gerler, Gerlaer, Gerlaen, Genler, Genlen,
Gerlen, Genlaen, Cerber, Cerben, Cenber, Cerler, Cerlaer, Cerlen, Cerlaen,
Cenlaen, Cenlaer. Then look at your keyboard and see which letters are close
to the letters GERBER and fill those in, this way you cover typos as well.
For example "G" could have been typed as R, T, Y, F, H, V, B, or N.

I will note that all online U.S. Census Web sites are not the same. I could
not find the record for my paternal grandparents in 1910 in the "big" Web site,
but could find it in one of those other sites available through my library.
So I'm leaning towards thinking that the record is there, just not properly
indexed.

Since the original message concerned Chicago, it might
be helpful to mention that Chicago renumbered their
streets in 1909.

In Rich's case, if he was using a known address >from prior
to 1909, then tried to find that address in the 1910 census,
that might account for the missing address.

Unfortunately, Like Rich, I also think there were a few census
takers who were less than diligent.....

I too have relatives I have never found in the census. In some cases it
turned out their names were so imaginatively misspelled that it was only
luck and wildcards that allowed me to find them at all. If you are using a
service that allows searches on other criteria try using their ages,
birthplaces, or first names.

Knowing the address helps, although not always--in the 1910 census, my
grandmother's entire apartment building is missing. I guess the census
taker quit early that day.

At the risk of using computerese, you must make sure that your computer
is using the latest Java Runtime Environment (JRE) because the viewer
is a Java program that gets downloaded. Make sure you are running
version 1.5

You can see this by opening Internet Explorer and going to the top of

Errors were not only in the early censuses......
A genealogy friend recently told me that for the 2000 census she never
received a form. She called and was told they were all mailed out. She
never received one and consequently her family will not be on the 2000
census. Someone will have real headaches looking for her and her family -
they simply will not be there under any spelling.

volunteers needed for Published by JewishGen Project #warsaw #poland

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Dear JewishGenner's
We have need for volunteers with very specific skills and experience.
Please review this list of
"help wanted" and let us know if you would like to offer your time to the
Published by JewishGen project.

1. Editor and proofreader : This requires previous experience as an
editor because the role can be challenging. It involves editing material
originally written in another language and then translated into English.
The end goal is to come up with a document that maintains the integrity
and style of the writer, but observes basic English grammar. Is this
something you can do while working in a word processing program that
will ultimately be converted to a pdf file for delivery to the printer?

2. Layout editor who can take the above described material and convert it
to a pdf file following the requirements for printing.

3. Graphics editor who will take on the responsibility of designing the
cover of a book, selection of font and style and "look" of the finished product

4. Experienced advertising writer who can provide messages promoting the
finished product, not only to our own constituency but to libraries
that maintain collections relating to the topics of our publications.

If you have an interest and previous experience, please let us hear >from

Troskunai Internal Passport Records #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

I have just received an English translation of one-half of the Troskunai
internal passport records, 1919-1940 - a total of 312 records. Like most of the
internal passport files, a wealth of important genealogical information is
included. Following is just one example taken >from one file.

Abraham Vulf LIKHTENSHTEIN, son of Leizer. Born 1894 in Troskunai. Mother's
name was Beila ITSIKOVICH LIKHTENSHTEIN. >from 1908 to 1912 and >from 1915 to
1921 he was in Baku (Caucasus) with his father, who died there in 1918.
Abraham applied for his internal passport in 1937.

Many of the files include the original German passport issued on the 5th or
6th of December 1917. The passport includes a photograph of the bearer and a
copy of the German passport can be obtained >from the Central Archive in
Vilnius. This is a good indication that the German army occupied Troskunai at that
time during World War I.

To learn about the JewishGen Lithuania Internal Passport Project, and to
view some of the documents contained in many of the files, go to -

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Lithuania/InternalPassports.htm

For information about these Troskunai internal passport records, and how to
obtain an Excel spreadsheet containing all of the records, please contact me
personally and not in a message to the Digest.
