Re: Records from Lodz #poland

Hi Ariel / Roni,

I too have been trying to get BMD records >from Lodz >from the 1920s-30s, and
the USC did send me records of my direct ancestors, although it refused to
send records of those who were not direct ancestors (my grandparents' /
great-grandparents' siblings), even though I explained that those people
had been killed in the Holocaust and did not have any living descendants.
So at least you should be able to get records of your direct ancestors.
I've never tried using the services of a researcher in Poland, but would
be interested to know >from anyone if they get better results.

I also recently got copies of my family's entries in the book/s of residents
from the Polish State Archives in Lodz, which contained even more
information than the BMD records would have, so you should certainly try
that. I would suggest specifically asking the PSA about the book/s of
residents and giving them the fond number, as once previously when I wrote
to the PSA asking in a general way for information, they said they didn't
have anything, but now, when I wrote to them and gave them the specific fond
number, they did a thorough search in the books and came up with documents.
(See the PSA's ELA database to get the fond numbers of census/population
books.)

I don't speak Polish but managed to write to both the PSA and the USC in
Polish translated >from English by Babylon. I'm sure the grammar was not
great and the archivists probably rolled their eyes at my mangled Polish,
but it was clear enough for them to understand what I wanted.

Hope this helps, and good luck,

Miriam Bulwar David-Hay,
Raanana, Israel.

We are searching for a birth registration >from the city of Lodz dates back

now after some search we found out that the Lodz archive contain ALSO

Dear Ariel,

Although I don't know which is which, I believe these are the Unikat and
Duplikat Registers, one in the USC and the other in the Lodz Archives.
In that case, they are likely to be almost the same although we do find
differences >from time to time.

The problem is that the Lodz Archives does not typically allow a search of
the post 1911 data and refers people to the USC. At least that is what a
Lodz researcher in Poland told me, as well as others who are researching
records less than 100 years old. This is consistent with the Polish state
privacy law that only records more than 100 years old can be made available
to the public.

However the Lodz Archives have Books of Residents that can be searched and
they may indicate the information on the birth as well as the actual place
of birth of the mother and thus the likely place for the marriage.
JRI-Poland had just started indexing that when all indexing was stopped a
few years ago.

You may want to consider hiring a researcher in Lodz to search the Book of
Residents for your family information. If you need names of researchers
there, let me know.

What names are you researching? Perhaps someone else reading this will have
more information for you.

Good luck with your research.

Emigrants via Canadian Steamship Lines 1920-1938 #lithuania

Emigrants via Canadian Steamship Lines 1920-1938

The Panevezys District Research Group of LitvakSIG is posting on its
Shutterfly website a list of 674 persons who emigrated by way of Lithuania
on Canadian ships presumably of the Canadian Pacific Steamship Line in the
period >from 1920 to 1938. This company was the principal carrier of
passengers >from Liverpool to Montreal (and also >from Glasgow and Antwerp)
during the inter-war period which coincided with the existence of the first
independent Lithuanian state.

This period also coincided with the enactment and enforcement of the first
restrictive immigration laws of the United States. The Emergency Quota Act
(also known as the Emergency Immigration Act of 1921) restricted the number
of immigrants admitted to the US >from any country to 3% of the number living
in the US according to the 1910 Census. The Immigration Act of 1924 further
restricted the number of immigrants to the US >from any country to 2% of
persons living in the US >from that country according to the 1890 Census.
This effectively severely limited further Jewish immigrants >from Eastern
Europe. These data exemplify the trend of Jewish immigration to Canada up
to the outset of WWII which Canada entered in 1939.

The Canadian Pacific Steamship Line, a subsidiary of the Canadian Pacific
Railroad (CPR) was uniquely positioned to exploit this traffic because it
could transport immigrants >from Europe to locations in Canada anywhere
along its transcontinental rail line. CPR also had connections to mid-west
US cities such as Detroit, Chicago and Minneapolis/St Paul which could
facilitate immigration to the US bypassing New York's Ellis Island.

The data indicate that the migration of this group peaked in the early 1920s
and declined considerably in the late 1930s until just before the outbreak
of WWII. The age of most individuals is given as of the year of migration.
The Comments column gives the street addresses of most of those who lived in
Lithuania, but it can be noted that many neither lived nor were registered
in Lithuania but were >from locations within the USSR. This information on
these individual is located in the files of the Lithuanian Central Archives
in Vilnius.

Access to the Panevezys District Research Group's (PDRG) Shutterfly
website is available to contributors. Contributions totaling $100 or more
qualifies an individual and, for the next five years, provides access to
the website, as well as exclusive access to all newly translated records
for at least 18 months before they are made publicly available on the

female opera singer in Kyiv, Soviet military officer #ukraine

philafrum
 

Hi Genners,

Can anyone suggest where I can research the following:

1) Family lore indicates that a female ancestor whose given name I don't know, maiden surname BURSTEIN, married surname, MENACHIEL (or variation thereof) was an opera singer in Kyiv in the late 19th century. She died giving birth about 1901. Are there any books or related source material that provide lists of opera singers >from that period?

2) Another ancestor, BORIS/BERYL UDIN, was a high ranking officer in the Soviet military, probably during the 1930's and 1940's. How can I learn more about him? He was born around 1898, grew up in Kyiv, and died around 1982.

Please respond privately. Thanks.

Immigration to Canada...quotas #bessarabia

The Johnson-Reed Act of 1924 stayed in effect until 1965. When my
mother wanted to leave Canada in 1960 for the United States, she had
to wait years for approval >from the USA because permission was still
based on the small Polish quota in the Act and she was a Canadian
citizen born in what was then Poland (Belarus today). Yet at that
time, I was able to enter the US within months of applying because of
an open quota between Canada and the US because I was born in Canada.

consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

additional 10,000 to add. We're still actively looking for additional files
