Former President of Brazil's Family #latinamerica

Marcia Kuusisto <DynamoPortuguese@...>
 

Good Day!

Could you please help me with my search on sugar cane Land Lords in
Pernambuco, Brazil?

Last name (usually together): Affonso de Mello

The former President of Brazil, Fernando Affonso Collor de Mello, is
descendent >from those Land Lords.

Did Manuel Affonso de Mello, Collor de Mello's grandfather, a Land Lord in
the 1800s or late 1700s go to Brazil >from Holland or Portugal?

I've heard Manuel's wife was Dutch.

Any luck for me?

Thank you so much.

Sincerely,

Marcia Affonso de Mello Kuusisto, MSCE

Arlington, TX

MODERATOR NOTE: Welcome to the LatamSIG list Marcia. In future postings it would
help if you would tell what research you have already done in an attempt to get
answers to the questions you raise above.

Re: Landsmanshaften & Burial Societies #poland

Bialystoker
 

As the Moderator pointed out the JGS of New York has some
lists of Landsmanschaften. They also have a searchable
database of Burial Societies in the New York area at
http://www.jgsny.org/searchcity.htm.

Although New York City was not the only city with these
Jewish beneficial societies, these collections are the only
source I know for tracking down such information.

Also, you may want to contact the Museum of Family History
(see http://www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/main.htm). Steve
Lasky has created a very useful website with a Cemetery
project that has information about landsmanschaften plots in
the New York area as well as some other locations.

Re: Tykocin Synagogue Records #poland

Bialystoker
 

Dear George:

JRI-Poland has indexed all the available Tykocin records
from 1868 through 1900. These are searchable at the
JRI-Poland website at www.jri-poland.org and click on Search
database. All available records >from 1826 through 1867 will
soon be indexed and will be placed online in the future.

I have personally visited the Tykocin Museum and asked the
Museum director for historical information about the Jews of
Tykocin. In return, they provided a 1905 Property Tax list
for Jews, which is being translated, and a few other minor
lists.

Other than the records listed on Miriam Weiner's Routes to
Roots Foundation Archive Database at www.rtrfoundation.org,
there just may not be any other Jewish records of Tykocin.

Descendants of Tykocin Jews are fortunate to have a wealth
of civil records available -- all of which are being indexed
by JRI-Poland.

Yad Vashem #warsaw #poland

Nicole BERLINE <nberline@...>
 

Zvi Bernhardt of Yad Vashem has asked me to post this message
regarding difficulties experienced by researchers using the Yad
Vashem Database.

Joyce Field
JewishGen VP, Data Acquisitions

On Yom Hashoah, we [Yad Vashem] put up a whole new site. We did this
in order to integrate a Russian interface for the site, a very
important move as we have also started a project to collect Pages of
Testimony among Russian speaking Jews. The project is currently
being carried out in the Ukraine and in Israel.

Like most new sites, the new site has bugs. We have sorted out most
of the bugs, but the site is still not as stable as the site we had
before Yom Hashoah. At this point, most of the time it works fine,
but the problems described below happens every few days. Our
computer people are working hard to solve the problem as quickly as
possible.

PLEASE write us at central.database@yadvashem.org.il if you encounter
technical problems with our site. We usually aren't able to answer
you quickly enough to help you, but you help us (and yourself in the
long run) by making sure we know all the problems that exist.

Searching for descendants of POMERANTZ / HOLRIE / BRAHAM #unitedkingdom

Yeruchem & Fraida Cohen
 

My great grandmother's name was Sarah (Sima) POMERANTZ. Her father's name
is listed as Harris HOLRIE on her death certificate and her first child,
Anna, was born in England.

I did a search for the name Harris Holrie on ancestry.com and his name came
up in the UK London censuses of 1881, 1891 and 1901 living in Hamlet Mile
Land (? not readable) Old Town and West Ham, Tidal Basin. I also found a
death certificate index for him >from December 1903 >from the district of West
Ham, County: Essex, Greater London, Volume 4a, Pg 68.

He had a daughter Annie with whom he lived in the 1901 census, whose
husband is listed as Lewis BRAHAM. They had the following children at the
time: Sarah, Sidney, Lilly, and Caroline. I found a record of their marriage
date as June,1889.

If you have knowledge of anyone >from and of the abovementioned families, I
would like to hear >from you.

If you would like to answer privately, remove any numbers that might appear
in my email address for your reply. Otherwise, please reply to the
