I own the WPA-produced directory of New York landsmanschaften.  There is (or was) an info file on the book on the JewishGen website.

The book is in Yiddish, which I'm not great at reading, and my attempt at finding your society was unsuccessful. In my search, I stumbled on what appears to be an English translation of the book from 1992. I've attached some information. Maybe a library near you has a copy.

Good Luck!

"I would try familysearch first. "
The problem here is that USCIS has visa files, alien registration files and other documents that aren't on familysearch and never will be, unless there comes a time they transfer the files to the National Archives. And it doesn't look like that is happening. For regular naturalization records you should always try ancestry and familysearch first, then the National Archives, but for many USCIS files there is no alternative to USCIS if you need the information, including documents with photographs.

Hello my name is Stephany and I am very much hoping someone is able to help me. My family has Sadagursky in it and so far we have had trouble linking this family to other sadagurskys. The sadagursky I have is a Samuel Shmuel Volko Sadagursky born around 1860 he married Miriam Moliver and they had five children Harry Zvi Pinchas Sadagursky, Max Srul Israel Sadagursky, Edith Yvonne Sadagursky, Annie Pearle Sadagursky, Solomon Leon Sadagursky and Berell Barney Sadagursky. I have information on all of these five children but so far there has beeen no luck finding parents or siblings for Samuel. They came from the Odessa Moldova area. The five children and Miriam ended in Australia and died there. Samuel is reported to have died in Israel but no records can be found. I would love to make some connections. ANy help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance

Marjoire asks if the genealogy Facebook pages have the information posted regarding the proposed increase in USCIS fees. I don’t know as I am not on Facebook.

 

I first posted it on November 15 then Dick Eastman posted it with permission using my posting on the IAJGS Records Access Alert -same as the one I posted on JewishGen Discussion Group and IAJGS Leadership Forum-- getting the word out. From Dick’s posting other bloggers copied his posting referring and including my posting. Other bloggers used their own narrative.  The same with my second posting announcing the group that is spearheading the coalition of genealogists and historians. This was also reported by Dick Eastman in his newsletter and again picked up by other bloggers. 

 

The word is getting out. Whether it is on any FB page someone else will have to respond.

Legal source for UK Internments

jel
 

I have a family branch that emigrated from Germany to England in the 1936 - 1939 period. Around 1940, resident aliens in England (and I assume in other parts of the UK) were classified by local tribunals as either exempt from internment or interned. All of the family I'm researching, except one, were classified as exempt from internment. The exception was a 19-yr old man living and working in London since 1936. He had been sent by his parents to attend school, and was stil a student. The unfortunate young man was put aboard the infamous Dunera and transported to Australia, where he was interned for two years. In the middle of WWII, the UK decided they needed more manpower in the army, and gave the interned aliens the option to join the British Army in lieue of imprisonment, and a path to British citizenship. This young man took that opportunity, eventually returned to London and qualified as a Charted Accountant (similar to our CPA).

My question pertains to the legal basis for the roundups and internments. Was there an act of Parliament, or an emergency proclaimation by the PM? I've searched the UK Archives and found nothing pertaining to the legal basis. The digitized tribunal cards for exemptions are available at the UK archives, and the Australian Archives have digitized the complete record for this young man's internment, but I've found nothing about the British legal mandate for the internments in either place..
I am hoping that some members across the pond can provide suggestions of where to look.
Thanks,
Judith

Photo Help Needed - Old Montefiore

Hello, Cousins!

In 1920 my grandfather, Max Rothstein, and others incorporated a
burial society in Brooklyn. The name was the Golden Rule Friendship
Society. The plot is at Old Montefiore in Springfield Gardens, Queens.
A concrete arch is erected at what is the 'official' entrance, and the
names of the founding members are engraved on it. If anyone is going
to the cemetery, I'd appreciate photos of all the names. The last time
I was there, I stupidly forgot to take photos. Thanks in advance.

Hi Scott,

Shavli (Shyaulyai — modern) was a city in Kovno Governorate of Russia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kovno_Governorate till WW1.
Courland Governorate Courland Governorate was part of Russia till WW1
as well. These two governorates were geographically very close.
Courland Governorate become part of Latvia, which was founded in 1918.
So I don't think there were any significant barriers to move between
these governorates. My grandmother Fanny Zimson was born in Vindava in
1909 (modern Ventspils), which was a city in Courland Governorate, and
now is a city in Latvia. I was able to find much more Zimson's family
records >from Lithuania, than >from Latvia. So I think there was some
movement of people in that region, especially after a railroad was
built around that time, which connected Ukraine grain export with
Baltic Sea, passing over Shavli to Libava and Vindava (major ports in
Russian Baltic region).

Re: Trip to Lvov (Lviv) Ukraine on April 2020 #galicia

Hi Daniel:

As a fellow Galitzianer, wanted to share my experience. I went on a
genealogical journey to Lviv and nearby villages my family came >from
early in 20th C. My trip was in 2012.

Flying into Lviv right after the world soccer event, we had the new airport
and a quick entry through passport control. Recommended by my guide
I made prior reservations at the Reikartz Medievale, a modern European
boutique hotel near the central Rynok Square, an amazing world heritage
area with the 19th C City Hall tower and Renaissance and Italianate
townhouses arranged in real time before your eyes.

I had a complex agenda: genealogical research, Holocaust era sites
(ghetto, memorial, Janowska camp, Golden Rose Synagogue memorial),
and a general historical tour of the city, general region and targeted
towns, to the west and east of Lviv, including ancient Castle Hill, above
the city.

I was touched by this remaining grand dame of the Hapsburg era. It is
stunningly beautiful, poor (with the elderly poor visible in doorways in
center section near old city wall) selling old cameras, personal items, a
scarf, etc.), as though time stood still....all buildings in center prior to
19th C, with Soviet era monoliths in distance. We went to the outdoor
architectural museum, the oldest brewery in Lviv (400 years old).... and
the memorial area where slain Jews are honored.... the looming
beseeching sculptured figure in the center.... unforgettable and tragic....
in the former confined ghetto area. There has been no renovation, no
improvements.... this is raw history. The open market built on top of the
Jewish Cemetery is haunting and unbelievable. The Rappaport Jewish
Hospital survives as the current maternity hospital with Magen David
designs in the wrought iron of the gates. The old Temple intellectuals
synagogue.... destroyed by Nazis, but a plaque shows the spot. The
other spared former synagogue, used for horses and hay, by the Nazis,
(Sholem Aleichem plaque) remains there in an old former Jewish
neighborhood, but no museum nor renovation. We visited the
contemporary Chabad synagogue and chatted with the staff,
contributing a bit. The members may be immigrants to Lviv such as
former Jewish Soviets.

The elegant coffee houses.... coffee is king in Lviv.... we went during the
amazing Coffee Festival in late September.... are wonderful. The high
end and emigree spots, bakery Svit Kavy, restaurants such as Amadeus,
were amazing.... down to the amuse bouche! Check out the art museum,
historical museum in Rynok and walk the streets.... Boim Chapel,
beautiful old Armenian Church.... ancient sidewalks, Opera House, city
arsenal ancient wall.... Being there and finding the exact villages my
family came from, plus smaller memorials, the cemetery in Busk.... intact
ancient Jewish graves the old 2-sided old synagogue (now a type of poor
housing on one side and evangelical church on the other).... broke my
heart.... my forebears prayed there.... and a mass grave found by Father
Patrick Desbois and the Yahad-In Unum research team.... site in the old
Jewish Cemetery on the hill. The memorial in Horodok ( former Grodek)
was touching because there were Holocaust mass grave stones lined up
with some plaque about Russian soldiers, and neighbors who knew
nothing about where this was. A glimpse into the past.... since Ukraine,
so poor and clearly still recovering >from its 19th- 20th C destruction,
dislocation and horrors.

I had research >from JRI Poland, Gesher Galicia, and a few documents my
guide found.... all of this together was a trip back in time.... sad,
connective, awesome, illuminating for you.... your mother and your
children. I didn't have direct contact with Archives.... but I did find my
past and made sense if my gr grandparents and grandmother's formative
experiences in the old world.... finding a piece of myself.... and profoundly
moved.... remembering each detail of that week to spontaneously share
with you.

Re: Relationship question

jbonline1111@...
 

Betty is NOT the stepmother of Edgar as she is not married to Edgar's father and was not married to him when he was born. Of course, if for some reason she is involved with the family due to sharing Charles with Allen and his family, she might be given the honorific of stepmother, but that is not a legal designation.  Furthermore, if Daisy divorces Allen, she may or may not be the stepmother of Charles any longer.  That depends on whether Daisy and Charles choose to continue that relationship.  

Re: More on USCIS Proposes Fee Increases - has this been posted on FB groups, yet?

Marjorie Geiser
 

I've tried to stay on top of all the posts on this topic, and even spent some time trying to read all the legal-talk on the website yesterday.
So, if this has already been asked, my apologies.

Has this been shared on all the genealogy Facebook groups, yet, in order to get the word out? I was going to post on some of the groups I'm on, but I didn't want to duplicate the notice.

Also, the site that's been put together for genealogists might have been updated further since I was on it, yesterday, but reading the materials indicates that just saying it's a shame the rates are going  up won't carry as much weight as details of what the proposition is, as well as perhaps how it will impact each of us who writes, personally.

MY personal observation is I JUST received the email saying that naturalization papers were found for my g-aunt, Helen LEVINE DENISON, and then if I just pay $65 for each (which is two), I can get copies. Even at THIS amount, I'm hesitating, trying to find the forms on my own.... But I also feel that my days are numbered if there aren't thousands of people who contact them.

Re: National Archives Social Security Numident Files Database Has Extractions from Some SS-5 Forms # United States #Archives #Social Security

Just to share from Jan's message, I have requested SS5 forms twice. The first one was for my grandfather, Jacob Levine, when trying to find who his parents, my g-grandparents, were. It was very helpful and broke open SOME of that brick wall.

The second one was for one of his sisters, Helen Levine Denison, because I haven't been able to find her birth info in Poland. Unfortunately, that SS5 didn't provide me with any info, because although she came to the US in 1906, when she was 6 years old, on the form, she put that she was born in the US...

However, I share this because this form can be VERY helpful!
