Re: Cannot find any records #general

Ken--If you can't go in the front door, you must learn to go in the side
door, back door or crawl space. You may **never** find the exact record on
the **exact** person you are looking for. I would ask you how common a
name FALKSON is. The records you are finding are in the city or shtetl
your FALKSON family came from? Are you keeping a note of everyone you are
finding with the surname?

If you can't find the person you are searching for, begin to go sideways.
Who were they related to? What about the other surnames you mentioned?
Make a lateral family tree. Eventually you will be able to start to connect
families.

You may never be able to do it with 100% certainty, as you will find old
records are much more fluid than what you are used to in the present time.
Keep at it. Don't give up. This is not a hobby for someone who wants
things done "now". It just ain't gonna happen like that......and that is
why the chase if often more exciting than the find.

I think this is as good a time as any to remind you and many others to go
back to the Jewishgen Info Files and re-read Dan Leeson's "A Genealogical Fable."

A Happy and Sweet Pesach to all,

c1860, Chippeh Raiseh SILVERMAN born c1860, their children Avrum Itzhuk
FALKSON born 1884, and Basche FALKSON born 1892).

Am I perhaps missing something in the transliteration of the names from
Yiddish to Russian to English (or some variation of that)?

What other sources of information might I pursue beyond Jewishgen? I have
contacted the archives in Belarus but got no response.

The specific towns I am interested in as potential places of birth are
Minsk, Budslav, Borisov, Yaloch, and Vilnius. Other surnames of spouses
are GORDON and SILVERMAN. >>

Re: Travel - Gomel/Mogilev to London in early 1905 #general

Martha, Genners,

I have 20 or so who made more or less the same journey at round about the
same time, in at least 4 separate groups, and I too have failed to find any
records of their journeys. They don't seem to appear on the Hamburg
passenger records, and the UK didn't keep any arrival records at that time
- or if it did, hasn't kept them, which amounts to the same thing. Some I
believe left >from Libau, but I have not been able to find out whether there
are any accessible passenger lists for that route.

The only one I've been able to trace is my grandfather, who came on his own
in Feb 1905, and appears on the Hamburg Passenger List departing on 8 Feb,
and arriving at the Poor Jews' Temporary Shelter in London 2 days later. He
was apparently fleeing military service - he'd been in the Army 2 years -
and is said to have disguised himself by dressing in women's clothing;
whether the disguise included shaving off his moustache we don't know. How
he or any of the others got to Hamburg - or Libau - we don't know, either.

he came via Hamburg, but I've found nothing I can possibly link to him on

Any suggestions welcome. He would have arrived in London within the
couple of months before Juune 21, 1905 (when he left London for Philadelphia).

Re: 1910 US Census notation #general

Several people asked for a link or search criteria for the census I'm
looking at.

Here's a link on Ancestry.com

[Moderator Note: shortened URL http://goo.gl/tw0iu ]

or search on Jacob S SCHNEIDER, spouse Gussie, in Manhattan, NY in the
1910 US census viewer of your choice.

I'd also be interested in any information coded about his occupation,
the form just shows "own income".

Thank you,

Does anyone know what the "L" meant, and if it simply designated those
from Russia, why were they being identified separate >from Jews >from other
countries in 1910 (ie: pre-Russian revolution)?

Research - Ozorkov, Makefka, Szczuczn #general

Miriam Landsman <mlandsman@...>
 

My paternal grandparents were Joseph KOBER (Cober), of Kavita, Poland and
Miriam (Maria) BORNSTEIN >from Ozorkov, also in Poland. They were married in
Ozorkov in August 1889 by Rabbi Shimon ROSENFELD in the presence of
witnesses named SHEMSKI and GOLDSTEIN. Apparently, an unnamed schoolchild
from Warsaw was also a witness!
Are any of these names familiar to anyone, please?

I am also researching LANDSMAN >from Makefka, Ukraine; UDALEVITCH >from
Szczuczn, Poland

Any information would be appreciated.
