DENMARK - SCANDINAVIA #lithuania

Elsebeth Paikin
 

To LITVAK SIG

Denmark SIG might be of interest to you if you have or have had
ancestors or relatives in Denmark.

It might also prove helpful because of the online passenger lists
for emigrants that passed through Denmark. At times the Danish
shipping lines were cheaper than others, and emigrants therefore
chose to go to or via Denmark. All who bought a ticket through
one of the Danish shipping lines agents are in the online searchable
databases of the Danish Emigration Archives:
http://www.emiarch.dk

The Immigration Museum has online searchable database for
1. naturalizations
2. issued work permits
3. persons expelled >from Denmark
the website can be found at:

http://www.immigrantmuseet.dk

Although the name is "Denmark SIG" it is endeavored to cover as far
as I can the other parts of Scandinavia, because the mobility was
very significant. So you might find someone born in Latvia, married
in Sweden, having children born in Norway and later on in Sweden or/
Denmark, living in Denmark and the father working in Sweden, etc.

There is also some information on the Northern part of Germany
(Schleswig-Holstein) because that it belonged to Denmark for a long time.
The first Danish Jews were invited to settled there in 1622!

Many of the members of Denmark SIG are experienced and knowledgeable
genealogists and historians, so if you are in need of help or want
some information, please subscribe to the Denmark SIG discussion
group and post your requests for help or information there.

You can join the Discussion Group of Denmark SIG - as all the other SIGs - by going to JewishGen's webpage:

http://www.jewishgen.org/listserv/sigs.htm

and follow the instructions (be sure to check the box in front of the
SIG you want to subscribe to!!)

But do not write to me personally, regrettably I do not have the
time to help individual researchers, and I don't have time to send
a polite reply either. (I get about 5-10 a day sometimes!).
I haven't even had time for my own research for the past year!

Best wishes for a happy 2001
and for your research

Re: Alytus celebrations... #lithuania

Zalman Latzkovich <zalman@...>
 

Before we even consider the invitation by Mayor of Alytus to join the 420th
birthday of the city, I think it would be appropriate for the Mayor to make
a public appology of the horrible crime that many of the city's Lithuanian
residents commited during WWII - killing of all Jews of the city. Those who
did this weren't the nazis, but Lithuanians -the neighbors, "friends", classmates"...

We'll never forget what has happened, and Lithuania should not forget
either.

Usually one or two postings on the Litvak SIG don't "wrap" around at the
end of the screen. They continue in one loooooooooooooong line, ad
infinitum, to the right, right, right.

What can be done?

Elat on the Red Sea

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Occasionally a message comes in to the Digest with lines that are much too long, which results in another "word wrap" problem -- only one word on some lines. I try to remedy that in moderation, which may lead to Yosef Sa'ar's problem. This is the first time we've heard of the problem he reports. If any other subscribers are sharing his problem, please let the Digest know. If there aren't many of you, an adjustment in your e-mail program(s) may solve the problem.

Re: Sophie (fwd) #poland

My step-grandmother's name was Sophie and her Yiddish name was Sprintzel. I
do know that when people Americanized their names, they usually took names
that began with the same letters as their Yiddish names.

Subject: JRI-Poland Krakow Marriage/Banns Indexing Update #poland

Judy Wolkovitch <judywolk@...>
 

Jewish Records Indexing – Poland is pleased to announce that the huge task
of indexing the Krakow Banns and Marriage registers is almost complete. We
regret the delay in posting the indices to the web site but the books are
massive and the handwriting is very difficult to read.

The data is now in quality control but the end is in sight. To minimize the potential for errors in the final database, all the records have been
combined in one large file. Various techniques are being employed to enable us to spot names that ‘don’t fit’ the normal pattern, typos that are
inevitable in such as massive project and spelling differences that resulted >from the difficulty in reading the handwritten entries. The more we study these files, the more we marvel at the eagle-eye, persistence and dedication of Adriana, our multi-lingual transliterator who is handling this complex indexing.

There is additional great news: another large register has been found
at the Jewish Historical Institute with a substantial number of banns
for the Progressive Synagogue for the years 1897 to 1936.

Once more we express our thanks to all those who contributed to this
remarkable project. We also owe a debt of gratitude to the Jewish
Genealogical Society, Inc. (New York) whose generous donation enabled Jewish Records Indexing – Poland to launch this project. And, of course,
we thank both the Jewish Historical Institute, Warsaw, which houses these registers and the Ronald S. Lauder Foundation Genealogy Project for their help in coordinating the work of JRI-Poland for this project.

Researching oral family history #yiddish

CynthiaWeaver@...
 

My mother's grandmother (Nanny) on her father's side told my mother that
Nanny's sister, named Jenny SCHEIN (spelling?), and her husband Sam were
dancers on the London stage and danced with Charlie Chaplin. >from what I
have read about Chaplin's life, this would most likely have been when
Chaplin was young (1880's-1890's). My mom's Nanny was born in 1868 and I
don't know if Jenny was older or younger.
Thanks for any thoughts as to how I might verify or dismiss this
evidence.
Sincerely, Cindy Weaver


God, give me the strength to blunder through my life, the wisdom to see
my blunders and the fortitude to try to rectify them.

Re: [query: Anyone else have mtDNA haplotype H with 3 C mutations on 189, 356, 362] #dna

judy snyder <jart59@...>
 

I think you know more about this than I do.

My certificate has ten columns numbered ten thru one-hundred and each
column has four seperate series of letters. I have a red "c" at the
front of the last series on number 20. Does anyone else out there
have one of these?

What is the Cambridge Reference Sequence and where can I go to read
up on it?

I hope someone sees this letter.
