Hi all,
Though I had a great-uncle named Paltiel (Paul in the US) who was a Kohen,
Paltiel is just a man's name. No indications of ancestry (other than that he
may have been named for an earlier Paltiel).

There was more than one Paltiel in the Bible, not including a Palti, short
for Paltiel.

"We made some inquiries attempting to locate the files on this case, at the
National Archives, but never got anywhere. We assume that the U.S. consulate
in Warsaw was the place where application was made. We never got anywhere
with our research."

This past March, I made a visit to the National Archives in Maryland to
search for visa and immigration records in the US Consulate of Warsaw files.
Unfortunately, documents related to immigration and visas >from that consulate
only exist up to 1933 and was told that records after 1933 were most likely
destroyed. However, I still looked through some of the large books containing
correspondence of the US consulate in Warsaw and did find lists of people
whose visas were approved in addition to interesting newspaper clippings and
documentation of those who tried to smuggle people to the US.

Another location at the archives for research are the Visa Case Files 1914-
1940. Although I did not find any records for my grandfather who immigrated
in 1938, I did find supporting documents for the visa application for my
great grandfather who immigrated in 1930. At the same time, I also am using
the USCIS genealogy program to see what records they are able to find. Still
waiting on those.

Anyone interested in reading more in detail about my visit researching Visa
and Immigration records at the National Archives can check out my blog.

KALFUSS Family #general

Dear friends,
I'm looking for my great-great-great-grandparents Lewick/Lewek and
Anna KALFUSS. I have only some records >from Vienna showing their son
was born in Brzesko (Galicia) in 1850, so I suppose Lewick and Anna
had to live in that area of the town of Brzesko or the county
town of Tarnow (today Poland).

I also suppose these my great-great-great-grandparents must have been
born around 1825. But I cannot find any records form Brzesko >from those
times.

So is there anybody whose ancestors belonged to the KALFUSS family
branch of that area of Brzesko/Tarnow and would know any Lewick/Anna
KALFUSS? They both were Jewish.

Thank You,

(France and European Union) CNIL Orders Google to Comply With Right to be Forgotten Worldwide Within 15 Days #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Last year Google lost a European Union Court of Justice ruling and is now
required to "delist" links when requested to do so by the subject of the
link - even when the linked story is true. Google (and other search engines
such as Yahoo and Bing) have been delinking but only on their European
Union-based sites. A French Court found in February that the "right to be
forgotten" should be global, that is, links should be removed on all of the
search engines' sites, including those outside of the European Union. Google
maintains that the ruling should only apply the ruling across its European
domains, such as Google.fr in France and Google.de in Germany.

The French Data Protection Agency, CNIL, has decreed that the earlier French
Court decision on delisting to be global needs to be followed and has given
Google 15 days to comply or sanctions will be imposed. France is the first
country to open a potential sanctions process against Google if its
practices are not changed.

Aron and Leie TEICHER: who knows their descendants and fate? #general

Leah and Eli Teicher
 

Dear Genners,
For several years I am "stuck" in one of my family's research. Repeating the
research was unfruitful.
Even though- I am trying to find descendants, if there are, or the fate of
my father's in law uncle who immigrated to the U.S.A for 4 times being a
resident in U.S.A.
No evidence was found as to what happened to him or to his wife after
lending in New York...

His name was Aron TEICHER (Born 1871 - 1873?), his wife Leie/Lina/Lena (born
1878/9?)
Aron Teicher was the son of Chunne/Chunna/Khunna TEICHER. (right name -
Chunna Teicher was my father in law grandfather)
from the village Rudniki near Zablotov/Zablotiv, then Poland now Ukraine.
He declared so every time he arrived in N.Y, also that he left there his
father.

What is known is (Ellis Island and Ancestry.com data bases):
1. Aron TEICHER's arrival: November 27th 1899 to N.Y to his brother in law
Lewis Fischman who lived in 114 1/2 Essex St., N.Y
Passenger ID:604028050096
Could not find Fischman's descendants

2. Leie's arrival on February 13th 1900 - to her husband who lived in the
address above.
ID:603798020256. Could not trace her.
As to Ancestr.com - There is a woman named Lena Teicher. I have her
death certificate and tried to
Find their descendants no luck.
Her husband there is Hyman Teicher.

3. Aron TEICHER (written as a mistake Feicher) arrival 26th November 1909
(RESIDENT!)
To his aunt Ciwye TEICHER, who lived in 292 Cherry St. N.Y
On that arrival he declared he was single, he was detained for couple of
days and released as he was a resident.
There in his record line it is written he arrived also on 1905 to the
U.S.A
ID: 101728020408
And when he was released his ID no. was 101728020574

Tried many names' and surnames' variations to find Aron TEICHER and Leie
TEICHER as an "American" ones - no luck so far. I have no idea if they even
left the U.S.A

I am curious and anxious to know these people and at least their fate.
My husband has no extended family and we might go this summer to the U.S.A.

Most thankful to any idea how to find them.

To answer Rachelle Litt's posting:

"What shipping Lines should I be focusing on for emigration
from Soroca Moldova, Chernvitzi Ukraine to Argentina in the early
1900's - about 1930? Most of the family who came to American went by
way of Bremen through Warsaw. Would this be the same for Argentina?
The ship might have might have passed through Brazil first. I am
looking for Meyer Znayde and his wife Tsilya and their children Samuel
and Sarah (there was a third child also but I do not have the name)
.After living in Argentina they left for Brazil and arrived in Brazil
landing at the pier of Santos in 1936. I am looking for this manifest
as well. Sarah was born January 26, 1923, that is the only birthdate I
have. "

Family Search (http://www.familyseach.org) has a great collection of
South American records, including visa information for Brazil and
Argentina, a rich resource for genealogists.

In checking records for Brazil we find what looks like your family:

Meyer ZNAYDE and Silvia ZNAYDE with daughter, Sarah ZNAYDE IANCHEL, in
an identity card issues in 1944 having lived on "rua Prattes 446" from
"Solteira, Russia." Meyer is an accountant. (Perhaps Sarah is
married by then?)

Also...

Meyre SNAYDE coming to Rio de Janeiro in 1942 en route to Uruguay.
His birthdate is listed as 5 March 1945, but this must be in error,
given the date of emigration, but the town indexed as "Thernovic,
Russia," is definitely "Czernovitz. His parents: Seilik SNAYDE and
Rosa SNAYDE. On this card it looks like he came >from Cherbourg in
France.

The direct link to the search engine is here:

(But always use the global search engine as well..just in case.)

Search on both spellings as Soundex didn't bring up both at the same
time. These cards have other useful identifying information that may
lead you to other records or places. There are photos with both sets.

Note that many records have not yet been indexed, but the images are
available which you can search through as if you were at the archive
and presented with a record book. Time consuming, but often
rewarding. More indexes are always being uploaded, so check back.
This is an excellent, free resource.
