Nancy Holden
 

JewishGen Education will offer a new online forum - The Jewish in
Jewish Genealogy
May 1 - May 29

Genealogy is more than statistics and facts. This class will give
you a chance to understand the Jewish immigration experience and
we'll discover tricks and tips to successfully search for Jewish
ancestry.

With each passing generation, the torch passes to children whose
lifestyle is further >from the immigrant experience. Now we have to
dig deep in order to bring up images and voices >from the past, to
understand and recreate their lives.

This class will cover Jewish institutions in the old country and
in the U.S. It will help a researcher discover patterns and
prejudices that affected the way life was lived in the new country.
Jewish life cycles, customs and culture, origin of family names and
naming practices, assimilation and acculturation, migrations
patterns and surname mapping will be part of this study.

For this class a student will work on one immigrant family and the
town (or city) where they first settled -- New York, Chicago, St.
Louis or points west. The course includes general research tasks
and assignments to give insight into the Jewish search.

Class is taught in a *forum* setting, private to this class. The
site is open at all times for students to post. The instructor
answers posts daily. Cost is $120 for 4 weeks. The full class
description is at

Re: Border Crossing Canada to USA #general

Using Ancestry, UK Outward Passenger Lists:
I looked them up on the Megantic, sailing May 14 1910. There were two adults and
three children listed. The names are crossed out and there is a notation "Rejected"
Names crossed out means they did not sail on the ship.

There is another entry for the same family sailing on May 21 on the Dominion,
arriving in Quebec.

Re: Who could leave Austria 1939-1940? #austria-czech

Eva Lawrence
 

While there were strict laws on what possessions Jewish people leaving the
country could take with them, the main problem was obtaining a visa for the
destination of choice. Germany and Austria were only too glad for Jews to
leave - as long as they left their money behind. USA and Britain required
a sponsor who would guarantee that they would not become a financial
liability to their new home, and only a citizen of the destination country
was acceptable - in the case of England, he also had to be British-born.
So there had to be a deposition of money, and also quotas were imposed.
Often it was a question of what persons of influence one knew - such as the
Baroness mentioned.

Newbie question - reconciling death records #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

The information in the ALD is >from the original death record in the
Lithuanian Historical Archive (LVIA) and is correct. The information on the
headstone was furnished by the living family members and their information
will not always be accurate. They are depending on family stories in
most cases.

You will have to ask JewishGen about the burial registry question.

<From: "Stahl, Sheryl" sstahl@huc.edu
I am beginning to research my SUVALSKI family >from Kalvarija

The information I have >from my family about my great-great grandmother is
that her name was Sarah, she married Yaakov Yeckel Suvalsky (d. 1914), and
she died in 1926.

In the Burial Registry I found this headstone.

But when I searched the LitvakSIG All Lithuania Database, I found this
record with a different date of death.

Date of death: 16/6/1925=A0 Age: 74 Cause of death: heart disease

Any clues on which to trust?

Also, is there a way to identify in which cemetery the headstone was
found?>
