Re: Sending money to the US #general

Stan Goodman <SPAM_FOILER@...>
 

Can anyone tell me if there is a method, at a reasonable cost and efficient,
for sending money to a researcher in the States, please? Betty Gardiner
If the intended recipient is a professional researcher, holding
himself out as a regular thing for such work, he probably has a bank
account that allows him to receive money through credit cards; if so,
getting money to him is simple.

If he doesn't, try Western Union, or an International Postal Money
Order, or even a personal check. US banks do not take the kind of
usurious or punitive exchange commissions
that are customary in Europe.

Smorgon/SUTSKOVER #belarus

Peter John Hinton <peter@...>
 

I am researching two families who came >from Lithuania/Belarus, one of them
from Smorgon and the other >from Vilnius, but I have come to a standstill !
In 1899 David MORRIS and Katie FREEDMAN married in London. We have
established that David, who was born in Smorgon/Smarhon in 1875, came to
England on his own aged 15 in 1890, went to South Africa 3 or 4 years later
and returned to London in 1899 to marry Katie. She was the daughter of Aaron
Alter FREEDMAN and came >from Vilnius. David said on his naturalisation
application that he had never used any other name than Morris but we suspect
this may not be so. He said his father was called Moses Mordecai MORRIS and
his mother Sarah KALISKY. We do not believe that Morris was David's original
surname and there are several possibilities remembered vaguely by the family
including
MORDKOVICH, SUSKOVICH and SUTKOVA or SUDKOVA. One descendant
was given the name Sutcover as a forename.

I have come to a dead-end in my search for where I can consult, either
on-line or at the LDS Family History Centre in London, they don't appear to
hold any
birth/marriage/death records for Smorgon/Smarhon. This town does not appear
to have been in Poland in the 19th century as it is not listed as a place on
the JRI-Poland web-site. I have not discovered a similar source for Russian
data. As far as the LDS is concerned the only thing they appear to have is a
record of landlords which is held in the Belarus archives in Minsk.
Smorgon/Smarhon it seems was at one time described as being in the Oszmiany
district (uyezd) of Vilna (Vilnius) Gubernia which I imagine was when the
whole area was under Russian control in the 19th century, and is now a
district (raion) in the province (voblasts) of Hrodna (Grodno) in Belarus.
I have tried to locate the bmd records in national archives in Vilnius or
Minsk, but have drawn a blank there.

There is no evidence that Katie's father ever applied for naturalisation in
Britain (there was an Aaron Freedman who did so in 1894 but they were not
the same).

Any help would be gratefully received.

More memorials and surname lists #ukraine

steve725@...
 

Greetings all,
I would first like to thank the few >from this list who sent me their English translations of the Hebrew/Yiddish names inscribed on the New Jersey Pinsker Holocaust memorial. It was so very nice of you to do this. I have now added this list to the Pinsker memorial page.

I have also added a page for a Sernick/Wichevke, Ukraine memorial that stands at Montefiore Cemetery in Springfield Gardens, New York. Would someone please tell me what the current names are for these two towns? I assume that they both still in the Ukraine. Also, this memorial has three sides that list in a horizontal fashion many, many names of those who are memorialized. This is too much for me to translate to English, so perhaps someone again might like to undertake this task. I do have photos of the inscriptions that are perhaps a bit larger, if the names on the photos currently online are too small to decipher. The link to the main Holocaust memorial page is www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/hm-main.htm .

I have also started unique surname lists for some Kiev and Odessa burial plots in New York and New Jersey. I know that there are a good number of you who are researchers of these cities. The Kiev list is a small one, and has been formed >from only one small society plot. The Odessa list is >from three society plots (out of nearly three dozen that exist in the New York-New Jersey metro area!).

Jewish genealogy awards - "Four Questions" and some reminders #lithuania

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

It's the time of year when thoughts turn to Passover -- and to the
awards our community bestows for achievements in Jewish genealogy.
So I pose these "Four Questions" to all of you:

1) What coveted award have Warren Blatt, Stanley Diamond, Susan
King, and Miriam Weiner all received?

2) For what achievement have Yad Vashem, Alexander Beider,
Stephen Morse, and the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project been
recognized?

3) Why and when have kudoes gone to David Fox and to the JGSs of
Los Angeles, Montreal, and Ottawa.

4) The JGSs of Greater Philadelphia, New York, Palm Beach County,
and Los Angeles have been honored for excellence in what area?

For answers, see the lists of distinquished winners of IAJGS's

those who haven't completed their nominations yet, here are some

own publications, projects, and projects. Don't be shy!

Of course, there is much more to my site, a virtual (Internet only)
museum of Jewish family history. I hope you all get a chance to pay
a thorough visit to my site and see what it has to offer. You can get
the best overview of my virtual museum by searching through the Site
Map page.

Vilkaviskis Arenbergs/Aronbergs #lithuania

TheGoodLifeToo@...
 

I have hit 'that brick wall' regarding the Arenberg/Aronberg families >from
Vilkaviskis and the surrounding area in Lithuania. The archives appear to
have little. I am now wondering whether anyone knows of records in Israel
or any other country regarding these families. I have family trees that
go back to the early 1800s but I can't connect my grandfather to the trees,
even though I know that he was related to people on the trees. I would
be most appreciative if anyone has any suggestions regarding these
families.

Jewish genealogy awards - "Four Questions" and some reminders #poland

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

It's the time of year when thoughts turn to Passover -- and to
IAJGS Achievement Awards. So I pose these "Four Questions" to all
of you:

1) What coveted award do Warren Blatt, Stanley Diamond, Susan
King, and Miriam Weiner have in common?

2) For what achievement have Yad Vashem, Alexander Beider,
Stephen Morse, and the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project been
recognized?

3) Why and when have kudoes gone to David Fox and to the JGSs of
Los Angeles, Montreal, and Ottawa.

4) The JGSs of Greater Philadelphia, New York, Palm Beach County,
and Los Angeles have been honored for excellence in what area?

For answers, see the distinquished lists of past winners of
IAJGS's annual Achievement Awards at
www.iajgs.org/awards_files/awards.html

Since 1998, the Jewish genealogy community has acknowledged
important contributions by individuals and groups with IAJGS
Achievement Awards, presented annually by the International
Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies. Thank you to all
who have already submitted nominations for the 2006 awards. For
those who haven't completed their nominations yet, here are some
reminders:

o Awards are given in four categories:

Lifetime Achievement Award

Outstanding Contribution to Jewish Genealogy via the
Internet, Print or Electronic Product

Objectives of Jewish Genealogy

Outstanding Publication by a Member Organization of IAJGS

o The Call for Nominations appears at

Please be sure to click on each award category for criteria
for that award.

o Although nominations must come to the Awards Committee >from
an IAJGS member organization (www.iajgs.org/Member-Index.htm),
we encourage Jewish genealogists to be part of the process. Please
look at the lists of past recipients and ask yourself a fifth
question: "Who else belongs here?" If you have benefited >from
a wonderful project, internet resource, publication, or
programming that isn't listed, let your JGS know and propose a
nomination -- this year if you and they can hurry, or for 2007.

o Societies are welcomed -- in fact, urged -- to nominate their
own publications, projects, and projects. Don't be shy!

o Nominations for the 2006 IAJGS Achievement Awards should be
submitted by April 1, 2006. We encourage you to get your 2006
