Re: Thank you To Nu? What's Nu? A search tip and A Uruguay research request re GOLDSHMIDT

Hi, 

We took a wonderful Jewish tour of Montevideo with Fanny Margolis earlier this year. Fanny is very well connected with the Jewish community and enabled us to enjoy an oneg at a Synagogue. I'm sure that she will be able to provide information to you. Her email address is info@...  and her website is  http://www.jewishtours.com.uy/site/. 

I hope that this helps.  My paternal grandmother was also a Goldschmitt with relatives in Bakshty and Ivye. I've done the following DNA tests:  23andme, FTDNA, MyHeritage and Gedmatch. My sister Nadine did the Ancestry DNA test.

Finding a Genealogist

Dan Oren
 

I "do" my own genealogy and have many friends in our genealogy world, but have a friend who does NOT want to do the work herself and is looking to hire a genealogist specializing in American and Eastern European Jewish roots. Can any of you personally recommend someone available for hire and let me know how they charge for their services. Please reply privately.
Thank you,

My mother told me and brothers about our great grandfather and his seblings were Jews who escaped from Spain during 1800s because of great persecution. During her funeral service my uncle reminded me about my great grandfather. Three years later my uncle died too, it's because were been told by our ancestors about our lineage, are we also Jews?


Passage Libau, Latvia to Jaffa, Palestine

Roberta Lipitz
 

My grandmother Fanny (maiden name Shore) born Libau 1888-1890.  Looking for birth certificate and possibly travel papers to Jaffa.  Am not sure of dates of travel and arrival and all I have is ship's manifest when she, her father and younger sister, arrived to Ellis Island in 1903.  I know that this is asking for a lot but have hit the "brick wall."  I do know through IGRA that these were the Ottoman Empire period and travel documents were difficult to find.

Thanks in advance for any help and/or advice.

Sincerely,
Roberta Lipitz

It is true that you do not need to use a Polish agency to get your Polish citizenship. However my experience has been that you can only receive some documents by having them mailed to person with an address in Poland.

This list and many others to do with Tel Aviv are searchable on the IGRA website.  Registration to so a search is free.

GREAT IDEA, PETER!

But the URL is incorrect.  It should be  https://www.ushmm.org/online/hsv/person_advance_search.php

Re: Seeking people connected to the Brodsky family “Sugar Kings of Ukraine” #ukraine

sharon@...
 

I also have stories about the Brodsky family.
 
My paternal Grandfather, Jacob Zamansky, and his family were master carpenters who worked for the Brodsky
sugar beet farms. My maternal Grandmother Schifra Dolinsky’s father was a bookkeeper for the family.
At one point in time it was told to me that her father Moishe Dolinsky also kept the books for the Brodsky synogogue in
either Smila or Kiyev.
I don’t know what happened to Moishe but his wife Dina and all but one daughter were able
to come to this country. Genia Dolinsky Krupnik supposedly died in the Shoach.
 
There were also many Brodsky family members who emigrated and settled in the Hudson Valley
of New York.

Re: Lithuanian Revision Lists online - Fond 515/15 - Vilna #lithuania

Joel Ratner
 

I neglected to mention the method used to find these records on the Familysearch website. Go to the catalog and perform a dual search as follows:

1. Enter Vilnius as the place name
2. select Keyword and enter census

It is interesting to note these records are filed under census rather than separating the records by religion and categorizing the ones for the Jewish community under "Jewish records". Let this be  word to the wise sleuth  - when searching through Familysearch for records, absolutely do not limit your search to the "Jewish records" section.

Re: Polish citizenship #poland

Denise commented that she handled the entire application on her own without
the assistance of an agency or lawyer.  Based on the many people who have 
contacted JRI-Poland over the years in search of help in locating the documents
they need to complete the application, I would comment that Denise is the one of
the exceptions rather than the rule. 

We have have been witness to or learned of many cases that stretched on for an
interminable length of time - for a variety of reasons - often caused by the intricacies
of applicable laws, additional documents required, such as proof of residence in
Poland within the prescribed period, and on and on. 

We have built a list of reputable companies providing guidance and carrying out
such applications (not lawyers who have fee schedules that can be excessive. 
A few companies with which we are familiar will examine the documents you
already have and what you know about your ancestor(s) circumstances and then
comment on your eligibility without charge .  

Questions welcomed.  Write to PolishPassports@...

Re: Converso children

friedman@...
 

regarding question #2, if the woman converts prior to having children, the children willl automatically be Jewish.  If the woman converts after the children are born, the children also have to undergo a conversion... the type of process will depend on their ages.

in either event, a reliable rabbinic authority should be consulted

Looking or Yakov/Jacob RASHAL b. about 1896 in Zalatopol, Ukraine, and wife Hinde, b. about 1897, on the SS RUSLAN, from Odessa to Jaffa, Palestine. This was a famous passage that arrived in Jaffa on 19 December 1919, and helped begin the Third Aliyah. Does anyone have a passenger list?
Yakov was the son of Benzion RASHAL. Benzion was probably born before 1875, and may have also come to live in Tel Aviv. Yakov and Hinde lived in Petach Tikvah, Palestine. Their daughter, Rivka, was born there about 1928.
Jacob, Hinde [later called Ida], and Rivka, came to the USA in March 1929.

Thank you To Nu? What's Nu? A search tip and A Uruguay research request re GOLDSHMIDT

Susan Goldsmith
 

Dear Jewish Gen members and Gary,

Thank you to Nu? What's Nu?, edited by Gary Mokotoff for helping to weaken a brick wall. Gary mentioned that Family Search now has Uruguay Passenger Records online. I knew that Goldsmith family from Lithuania emigrated to Montevideo, Uruguay but not when. I found their records, thanks to Gary.

I want to share a research tip: Initially I searched Goldshmidt and did not find them. I then did a Gold* search which required perusing over 700 records, but I found them with the name spelled as Goldemidas.

Has anyone used a Uruguay researcher successfully? Has anyone had successful dealings with the Montevideo Jewish Community?

Thank you,
Susan Goldsmith
