JewishGen welcomes the Danzig/Gdansk SIG #france

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Dear Friends,
JewishGen is extremely pleased to announce the formation of the JewishGen
Danzig/Gdansk Special Interest Group (SIG), which will focus specifically on
Danzig -- now Gdansk, Poland -- including its precursor communities of
Altschottland, Langfuhr, Mattenbuden, Weinberg, and Danzig in der
Breitgasse, as well as Tiegenhof/Nowy Dwor Gdanski. The unique history of
this community and the exceptional survival of its records presents
a marvelous
opportunity for collaborative genealogical research under the JewishGen
umbrella.

If you have research interests in this area we urge you to join the Danzig
mailing list by visiting < http://lyris.jewishgen.org/listmanager >. We
also invite you to visit the website at <
http://www.jewishgen.org/Danzig >. where you will see that contributions
of family histories, memoirs, photographs, maps, and other material of
interest will be welcomed..

Details about SIG projects aimed at making Danzig genealogical resources
more accessible, will be available on the website in the very near
future. Stay tuned!

Our thanks to Logan Joseph Kleinwaks , Coordinator of the SIG and Elsebeth
Paikin, Moderator of the mailing list for taking a leadership role in
proposing and organizing this entire effort to add to the programs and
projects JewishGen provides. .

We hope you are also excited and will join us as we embark on a new era of
Danzig Jewish genealogical research. We also encourage anyone who has
interests in this area and the historical records which will ultimately
reside on JewishGen to volunteer to help with projects. Some projects
may require funding, and we would appreciate your support in the form of
tax-deductible (in the U.S. and Canada) donations via the dedicated

Re: Another feat from Steve Morse - UK Census from 1851 to 1901 #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Nachum Tuchman has highlighted one of the major
problems of the UK censuses - the often hilarious
mistranscriptions. Those of us who trawl through the
censuses to look for hidden treasures, are well aware
of these failings. The first point to remember is that
the indexing of the 1901 census by the National
Archives: http://www.1901censusonline.com/

is *not the same* as that by the well-known paying
genealogy site which lists all the transcribed England
and Wales censuses, 1851-1901, which are the basis of
Steve Morse's valiant effort to provide us with a
single simplified search engine.

Alas things are not that simple - many names differ
from census to census; either the spelling has been
changed or they are mistranscribed y-o-y.

For example in Steve Orlen's recent query about Israel
WOLIN's wedding certificate; those of us who looked at
it on Viewmate, will have seen the name Betsy ESSERLES
- you can deduce Betsy was nee ISERLISSE or ISSERLES
from the National Archives 1901 census as she had two
daughters living with her [step-daughters of WOLIN]
who are indexed as:

Annie ISERLISSE 21 born in Russia - Teacher
Rose ISERLISSE 13 born in Russia
and Betsy is Betey;

but you would spend a lifetime looking for them in the
index of the "Steve Morse" 1901 census as they are
indexed under JAULISSE! Not only that, but poor Annie
is a veritable Methuselah at 321 yrs old and a wife!

If you think that searching by place of birth is
easier, I have found a cluster of Somali-born farmers
living in rural Somerset in the 1800s!

Bona-fide English names on the Steve Morse site are
often transcribed as rather Jewish-sounding names -
for example there are many MINTZ in rural England but
in reality they are MINTY, likewise there is a cluster
Lancashire MAERZ but I have still to fathom out what
they are. They are not to be found on the Official
1901 site. I suspect these errors reflect the
ethnicity and general knowledge [or lack of it] of
the transcribers. The official 1901 census, I have
heard was transcribed in Asia, where central European
names would have sounded even stranger.

So as in diagnostic tests, there are false positives
and false negatives. It is all great fun and will keep
us mentally agile for years to come!

Colma (CA.) Jewish Cemeteries: Photo offer #general

dayna reader <zoeys_mom@...>
 

Hi all,

I live not far >from the small town of Colma, CA. which
is well known for having more dead residents than
living. There are 3 Jewish cemeteries there: Eternal
Home, Salem Memorial Park and Hills of Eternity.

I do get out there periodically and am willing to take
gravestone photos for anyone who needs one. My only
stipulation is that you MUST give me the exact
plot/grave location, as all 3 are rather large
cemeteries with 1,000s of burials. All 3 cemeteries
have offices with friendly staff who can give you that
information if you call them up.

If you'd like a photo >from any of these 3 cemeteries,
please email me privately (free of charge, of course).
Photos are digital and will be emailed.

Re: Sawalkin... #general

Sally Bruckheimer
 

Yes, whatever name would have been spelled in Cyrillic
letters for Russian, and Hebrew letters for Yiddish.

Just like Peking became Beizing and Bombay became
Mumbai with different transliteration methods, our
ancestors surnames often became somewhat changed.
Generally, the intention was usually to keep the sound
the same, but, for example, Yiddish was pronounced
differently in different areas. And spelling was not
consistent until well into the 20th century in
English. Also, things got mangled and simplified.

However, Sawalkin probably came >from Suwalki, a big
city and gubernia in Russian Poland. The sound is
similar.

We hope you are also excited and will join us as we embark on a new era of
Danzig Jewish genealogical research. We also encourage anyone who has
interests in this area and the historical records which will ultimately
reside on JewishGen to volunteer to help with projects. Some projects
may require funding, and we would appreciate your support in the form of
tax-deductible (in the U.S. and Canada) donations via the dedicated

Yes, whatever name would have been spelled in Cyrillic
letters for Russian, and Hebrew letters for Yiddish.

Just like Peking became Beizing and Bombay became
Mumbai with different transliteration methods, our
ancestors surnames often became somewhat changed.
Generally, the intention was usually to keep the sound
the same, but, for example, Yiddish was pronounced
differently in different areas. And spelling was not
consistent until well into the 20th century in
English. Also, things got mangled and simplified.

However, Sawalkin probably came >from Suwalki, a big
city and gubernia in Russian Poland. The sound is
similar.

Dear Friends,
JewishGen is extremely pleased to announce the formation of the JewishGen
Danzig/Gdansk Special Interest Group (SIG), which will focus specifically on
Danzig -- now Gdansk, Poland -- including its precursor communities of
Altschottland, Langfuhr, Mattenbuden, Weinberg, and Danzig in der
Breitgasse, as well as Tiegenhof/Nowy Dwor Gdanski. The unique history of
this community and the exceptional survival of its records presents
a marvelous opportunity for collaborative genealogical research under the
JewishGen umbrella.

If you have research interests in this area we urge you to join the Danzig
mailing list by visiting < http://lyris.jewishgen.org/listmanager >. We also
invite you to visit the website at < http://www.jewishgen.org/Danzig >. where
you will see that contributions of family histories, memoirs, photographs,
maps, and other material of interest will be welcomed.

Details about SIG projects aimed at making Danzig genealogical resources
more accessible, will be available on the website in the very near
future. Stay tuned!

Our thanks to Logan Joseph Kleinwaks , Coordinator of the SIG and Elsebeth
Paikin, Moderator of the mailing list for taking a leadership role in
proposing and organizing this entire effort to add to the programs and
projects JewishGen provides.

We hope you are also excited and will join us as we embark on a new era of
