Yes - I wish I had thought of taking them outside when I was allowed
to photograph -- but only through the glass -- two color portraits
of my great-grandparents in the home of a second cousin I had never
met before! I took a lot of pictures >from a great many angles, but

Fw: IAJGS Conference in NY #ukraine

I know that a lot of people of Russia enter your page of Jewishgen. And my
site if one site in Russia about Volhinia. Also a lot of materials in it are
exclusive in Russian, becouse I know some people, who working in archives in
Volhinia and they sent me their materials. By the way I think that our
banners to help some people to view materials in Russia, it will be very
fine, who can speake and read English very well. As for american jews who
wantes to search more information about Polonia and some parts of Volhinia
(baranovka and kamenny Brod), they can also to enter my site and try to read
in Russia. ..

This is my banner, example

"Jewish genealogia of shteteles of Volhinia in Russian.
Surnames:Perelmuter, Langer, Feldman, Schydlower.

Dr. Schmuel (Samuel) BRUMER, Vienna #austria-czech

Sandra and Donald Hirschhorn <sdh2381@...>
 

I have learned >from two sources (oral history) that my great-grandfather
Schmuel Brumer was born in Vienna and attended medical school there. Also,
Dr. Brumer was "eye doctor to the Tsar" and my family was permitted to live
in Moscow as a result of this. My Mom did live in Moscow with her family in
the 1900's. This information was also confirmed by two groups of my family.

Is there a list of medical students in Vienna during the 1800's available
anywhere? I would like to confirm this information.

Also as a new member of this group, it would help if I could determine where
to write for a birth certificate if such was available in the 1850's-1860's.

Thank you.

Re: suggested changes to Early American #usa

May I put my 2cents in?

>from what I read this would be a big help to everyone doing research.
I am still trying to find things, and it's like trying to walk in hip
deep mud. (Ever tried that? Not easy.)
This type of searching and help would be helpful to many of us. Many of
us are having problems with proving who we are as our families have
hidden things for so many years. Mine did and it was only passed down
to one person every generation. Lucky for me and all of my other family
members My Grandmother- Grossmutter, known as Mutte. Didn't agree with
that and she told all of us. Without the proof however to take to a Rabi
we are stuck in Mud. (Literally.)

So please if there is a way to compile and simplify things PLEASE can we
do that I will even try to help if need be.
I'm a good at research and going through info. Blessings,

Re: Helene Kenvin's web proposal #usa

Rachel Unkefer <runkefer@...>
 

Several years ago at the beginning of EA SIG, I took tentative steps
toward something of this sort, with a state-by-state directory of
family names being researched by EA-SIG members and research
resources by state. Admittedly we didn't get very far with it, but I
think it would be valuable, as geography is one of the most important
issues in our research. If any of you are familiar with USGenWeb
(actually, if you are not, you should be), that might be a model to
consider--pages for each state where we have active research and then
sub-sites within the states, either counties or major cities with
Jewish populations.

At the moment, I am involved with other projects, so I don't have
time to help with web design, but I might be able to sometime in
2007. Like Helene, I have gathered a lot of information on certain
places that I could share. Also, it might be good to try to
coordinate with the cemetery project to get some of the smaller and
older Jewish cemeteries documented around the country. Links to that
database could appear where appropriate in location pages.

Having an Early Am. "Shetel Links" sounds wonderful. Many of my ancestors
were here in the 19th century (prior to Ellis Island). Records are spotty.
Some came through NY (KAHN), some to Providence, RI (GERBER), some to South
Carolina ,through NY, (ISEMAN & KAHN).

Re: PERITZ family from Breslau #germany

First, please register your interests at the JewishGen Family Finder:

http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/

This is the most powerful tool in Jewish genealogy.
(Anyone who disagrees may sign up for a duel of laptops at 20 paces.
Line forms to the left.)

Once you're registered, you can see who else is interested in the same families.
[They may already have a lot of information collected that they will share
with you.]

A quick search indicates at least one researcher working on PERITZ in Breslau--and
one looking for PERITZ in Wielun. (Hmmm...)

Breslau had one of the biggest Jewish communities in Prussia, later one
of the biggest in Germany. There's much written about it, and much was
written there--it was a center of Jewish scholarship, including historiography.

You mention Ellis Island. Indeed, there are no records >from before a
certain date; but Ellis Island itself only opened as an immigration
center fairly late. Before then the entry point was Castle Garden, on
the Battery at the south end of Manhattan. I believe there are Castle Garden
records on-line--perhaps at one of the fee-based genealogy sites. Good luck!
