Dear Genners,
Was Ostroleka, Poland part of Russian/Poland?
It is in the area of the former Lomza Gubernia, and therefore in what was
Russian Poland.

I have been trying to search my MEYER, KAFKA, KUPFER
family back to Europe, but up to now have had no more
specific information other than their origin being
Russian/Poland. In 1900 Manhattan census, they list
origin as Russia, 1910: Poland, and 1920:
Russian/Poland. Found information on the Mt. Zion
website...(Thank you for all who posted the
information about this.)Joseph Benjamin buried at Mt.
Zion with the Fortschritt Lodge (same as my family)
listed as being >from Ostroleka, Poland. Could this be
my first real lead???

Raciaz Books of Residents now indexed by JRI-Poland #poland

Herbert Gursky
 

There is exciting news for Raciaz researchers!

Indexing of the Books of Residents for Raciaz has been completed by Jewish
Records Indexing - Poland!

What are Books of Residents?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Where these volumes have survived, Akta Miasta or Ksiegi Mieszkancow or
Ksiegie Ludnosci (Books of Residents) are a unique source of information on
the citizens of towns and villages of Poland. In simple terms, these
registers contain a house-by-house census of the people in the town and
the authorities' way of monitoring the movement of the
population. Different series and types of Books of Residence and Census
registers have been in use since the middle of the 19th century but, unlike
the vital records of Poland, most have not survived the passage of time.

The Raciaz Books of Residents
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
These are held in the Plock branch of the Polish State Archives. They
cover the period >from the late 20th century until 1931. The earliest year
of birth mentioned is 1800 and there are also entries for the 20th century.

The Raciaz Books of Residents Excel file includes page number, house
number, entry number), surname, first name(s), father's given name,
mother's given name and maiden name, date and place of birth, occupation,
place of domicile, previous place of domicile, and remarks (deaths, changes
of residence, and military service, for example).

Why are Books of Residents for Raciaz important?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
These entries contain a full picture of family groups. In addition,
approximately 25% of the entries are for individuals NOT recorded in the
birth registers. Many entries include information about where
people moved to so it can open up the door to previously unknown family
branches that lived in another town. This is particularly important for
young women who moved to their new husband's town.

How do I know if my family is in these books?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
JRI-Poland has created a surname list extracted >from all the
entries. Below is a list of all the surnames appearing 25 or more
times. If you do not see your family surname(s) in this list, please
contact me and I will gladly send you a file listing all the surnames and
their frequency.

Re: Commemoration days in Hungary #hungary

Ted Grossman <tgrossman@...>
 

Thank you for the information. Because I will be in Hungary in early
June, and had planned a trip anyway to Kisvarda, which is in the
area where my grandparents and great-grandparents grew up, I intend
to attend the June 4 commemoration of Holocaust victims at the
synagogue there. I also intend to visit the cemeteries there, and
would be happy to take some pictures of specific things that people
may want. Finally, I would appreciate any advice people may have
about things to see there.

Hungary SIG #Hungary Re: Commemoration days in Hungary #hungary

Ted Grossman <tgrossman@...>
 

Thank you for the information. Because I will be in Hungary in early
June, and had planned a trip anyway to Kisvarda, which is in the
area where my grandparents and great-grandparents grew up, I intend
to attend the June 4 commemoration of Holocaust victims at the
synagogue there. I also intend to visit the cemeteries there, and
would be happy to take some pictures of specific things that people
may want. Finally, I would appreciate any advice people may have
about things to see there.

Alexandre/Alexander #france

I would appreciate any opinions on the following. My husband's grandfather,
Jacques (Jacob) ALEXANDER was >from France according to his census information.
His son said he thought the family came >from "somewhere in Alsace, in or
near Strasbourg." Through the 1900 and 1910 census reports we know that Jacob
arrived in the US around 1880 and lived in Manhattan, NYC, New York. The family
was thought to have been Jewish.

I have found a Jacob ALEXANDER on the Castle Garden website who possibly fits
the age profile (about 8 yrs. old). According to the passenger list, this
child came >from Prussia with his parents and seven siblings. Their port of
departure was Antwerp, Belgium and their arrival date at Castle Garden was 14 May
1880. The father of this child was Joseph Alexander, naturalized in 1888 and
his papers say he was >from Germany.

Recently I became aware of another "Strasburg" (now Brodnica in Poland) which
was part of West Prussia around 1873. >from what little information I've given
above (and below) does anyone think it is possible that this "Strasburg" is
actually where I should be doing research? Or, does the fact that Jacob
referred to himself as being >from France preclude this?

We know the date and place of Jacob's death (in New Jersey) but filing for a
death certificate brought no results. Apparently the death was not reported.
Since he apparently arrived in the US as a child, there would be no
naturalization records. Jacob married Minnie Eisner in Manhattan in either 1996 or
1997. I have sent for a copy of their marriage record in hopes it will provide
further clues. Minnie was >from Vienna, Austria and had been in the US for
about seven years according to the 1900 census. We think that she was Jewish and
that she may have had a brother who was a rabbi. After their marriage they
lived on 48th Street in Manhattan and later moved to Jersey City, New Jersey.

My father-in-law has Jacob's date of birth recorded in his bible as 13
December and Minnie's as 25 November 1872. On the 1900 census report, these dates
are given as Dec. 1873 and June 1872 respectively so I can't vouch for their
accuracy.

Any opinons and suggstions as to how I should proceed will be most welcome
and greatly appreciated.

Jewish newspapers in France #general

Jonathan Newman
 

I am currently trying to trace a member of my family, called Edward NEWMAN,
whom I believe died in France in the early 1970s.

Does anyone know whether there is a French equivalent of the Jewish Chronicle,
which might have carried an obituary of my relative? Alternatively, is there any
possibility that there would have been an obituary in one of the non-Jewish
newspapers?

Many thanks for your help.

U.S. Census Undercounts - Second Enumerations, etc. #general

Randy Stehle
 

United States federal census undercounts have been taken seriously enough
over the years that several second enumerations have been done In 1870,
there were enough complaints about undercounting that the following
localities had a second census taken: Manhattan, Indianapolis, Philadelphia
and Liberty County, Georgia (This list may not be complete It was what I
found on a Google search) In 1880, St Louis had a second enumeration
In 1890, complaints about the fedreal census for parts of New York City were
voiced A special census was undertaken by the police for Manhattan and
parts of the Bronx It was determined that the original census had a 13%
undercount

In an article entitled "Perspectives on Historical US Census Undercounts"
by King & Magnuson, published in the journal "Social Science History" (Vol
19, No 4, Winter 1995, pp 455-466), the authors state that the 1880
census had a 64% undercount I do not have access to this journal If
anyone can locate a copy, I would love to know the authors estimates for
other US censuses
