Language of Lithuanian records #lithuania

Abramson, Arthur
 

Aside >from Howard Margol's fleeting mention of it, I have not seen any
serious mention of Polish in Jewish records in Lithuania. All the
records held in Vilnius for my ABRAMSON family in Sakiai (Shaki, Szaki),
Suwalki Guberniya in the early and middle portions of the 19th century
are in Polish. Since this part of Lithuania was Russian Polish territory
then, this is not a surprise.

Irving ROSS - U.S.A. #general

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I am looking for an Irving ROSS, born 1927 in Los Angeles. He is not listed
in the SSDI so I am hoping he is still alive.

His mother's name was Kate Ross (nee STITZEL) - father's name unknown.

According to the 1930 census Kate and her son were living with Kate's father
Max Stitzel in Pasadena, Los Angeles.

Any information on Kate, her husband and son would be gratefully
appreciated.

Thank you.

everyone.

With the power of the Internet and emails we are in a whole new world of
access to information and exchange of information.

I have recorded elsewhere how I have recently been put in touch with a
cousin of my mother through JGFF.

In most Western countries there are laws concerning working with children,
the elderly and also vulnerable people. If I want to work in a hospital in
the UK, I have to fill out a long form and a check is done against me.

If a father wants to go away for a weekend with a Scout troop then they have
to go through a similar procedure. Likewise if I want to go and do voluntary
work in a Jewish old people's home.

These are rules that affect the Jewish community as much as everyone else.
What I am saying is that whilst the information is of historical interest
then I have no problems.

I recognise the problem that Yisroel speaks about, but it is regrettable the
modern society that we live in, and that protection like this is needed.

But we Jews and genealogists are part of the society we live in, and these
protections have been set up for a reason.

And I repeat that my close family would be very concerned that the personal
details of their young ones has been obtained by someone whose relationship
to them is very distant.

Protection of young people and the vulnerable is far more important than the
purpose of any genealogical exercise.

Family GOLBIN - U.S.A. #general

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

There are only 34 GOLBIN families listed in the U.S.A. phone directory -
perhaps someone can assist me in finding the descendants of a Rose GOLBIN
born 1895 died 1954 in LA.

Her parents were Max STITZEL and Jennie BUTTERMAN.

According to the 1930 census Rose was a widow, she never re-married- with a
10 year old daughter Jeanette, they were living with her father in Pasadena,
Los Angeles. I have no idea of Roses' husband's name.

Any information on this family would be gratefully appreciated.

Thank you.

Re: NY Records #general

Burt Hecht <burt1933@...>
 

I am not aware of the existence of a general census taken in New York State
for the year 1935. It's release may take some time, indeed.

New York State took a mid-decade census every ten years >from 1825-1875, then
again in 1892, 1905, 1915, and 1925. 1892 is particularly useful because
very little of the 1890 federal schedules exist. Not all the schedules
survive for each county and each census year. A good guide to what does
exist is New York State Census Records, 1790-1925, compiled by Marilyn
Douglas and Melinda Yates, Bibliography Bulletin 88 (Albany: State Education
Dept., 1981).

As to the Rome NY institution, it might be fruitful to contact for the
County Historian for the appropriate county in New York to gain some idea.
There is also a network of County Genealogical Societies for NYS.

Good luck.
