In Re: Your Visa History Question

 

Hi,

 

US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) on their website

has a section that deals solely with genealogy related questions on

visas and related historical information on the US immigration system.

The main USCIS website is found at https://www.uscis.gov/  Go to

the section marked tools at top of page and search those research topics

having to do with family immigration history.

 

I hope this is responsive to your question.

 

Best,

Chuck

Dear All,

I am trying to confirm information regarding a person named DEUTSCH
Antal. He was born on February 1st 1858 in Szegenyhaz Ter, Budapest
(where is that today?), and married LICHTENSTEIN Rozalia.
I would like to find information regarding their children, occupation,
place of living and death dates. I have tried to search for both names
on JewishGen so that's all I know.

If anyone can help me out I would really appreciate it!

Many thanks,
Amit

Re: Visas

Visas were required for entry to the US beginning in 1924, you could obtain them earlier (my grandparents did, in 1922) but the law requiring them began in 1924. Visas from 1924-1944 are held by USCIS and copies can be obtained from them: Visa Files, July 1, 1924 - March 31, 1944

I have been trying to find any records for two of my families from Kremenchug or environs. 
My understanding is that the records were actually destroyed during the Second World
War. There is a story on JewishGen by a father and son's research trip to Kremenchug who report ed the above. 
If there is any information to the contrary I would be very happy to let you know via the JewishGen discussion group or to you directly.

Survey to identify needs of archive users #austria-czech

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Kerstin Muff, head of communications at ICARUS, the International

libraries and other organizations in Europe - has written to us about
a survey they are conducting, on the needs of older archival users,
including researchers on family history. She is asking us to forward
her message to those we know who may be interested to take part in
their survey. Gesher Galicia has been an organizational member of
ICARUS for the past five years. Kerstin Muff's e-mail to us is

Subject: Survey to identify fields of interest of archive users
To: info@... <info@...>

Dear colleagues,

For many people, the prospect of retirement >from work gives an
opportunity to seek fresh directions and new challenges. Archives seem
to be an increasingly popular place to pursue such new ro(o)utes (key
word: genealogy). Our EU-funded project "digital treasures" -
https://www.digitaltreasures.eu - is keen to explore and co-shape
these routes together with the silver researchers.

There are already a lot of retirees that use the archives actively,
for research on local or family history, for example. Also, there are
certain groups of volunteers (i.e. retired historians) that support
archives in crowd-sourcing activities such as the identification of
certain items on pictures, etc.

As the archives increasingly adapt to the digital age, it seems though
that many of the elderly generation are faced with the challenges of
new technologies. The archives clearly need to adapt to their active
and potential users and explore together how to improve their
cooperation with user communities and keep opening their doors for the
silver researchers.

A survey to identify fields of interest of archive users:
- To learn more about the nature of silver researchers in archives,
our project has set up an online survey to identify pan-European
fields of interests and acquire more knowledge about the specific
needs of this specific user community.

If you are part of the silver researcher community (60+ years old),
please be kindly invited to take part in our survey. Your
participation will be an important contribution to further amplify the
services of archives as well as enhance the cooperation between the
public and archives in the digital age.

Please feel free to distribute this survey via any additional suitable
mailing list you may have available.

Thank you,

retrieving past messages to JewishGen SIG lists

Renee Steinig
 

As others have pointed out, SIG emails are unaffected by the recent changes to the main JewishGen Discussion Group. Here's a way to retrieve past messages:

Let's say you wanted to access all the messages that came to the Galicia list in the past three weeks (2019 Oct 05 to 2019 Oct 26). You'd write this in the body of an email message (in Plain Text):

                 get galicia 20191005-20191026

and send the message to lyris@... . No subject line or signature is needed. The relevant messages will come to you quickly, in a single email.

To get messages from another list, substitute its name -- e.g. austriaczech, gersig, h-sig, jri-pl, litvaksig, rom-sig, ukraine -- and the dates you wish to search. The name of the list needs to be exactly what appears in its address -- i.e. galicia@...

You can also retrieve messages that were sent to the JewishGen Group Discussion Group through Oct. 9 -- i.e. messages that were distributed via Lyris, before the changeover.

Re: SIG emails

Jeffrey Herrmann
 

A simple thing to do that would be reassuring in this confusing transition would be to have each SIG leader send a "Test" message to their group


Moderator Note: an excellent idea to assure everyone ...

 

So, has any SIG leader carried out this excellent idea?   I haven’t got any test messages.

I am looking for descendants of my father's first cousin, Beno [Benjamin?] Herer [or Herrer] - Beno lived in Moscow and had two children. He  was probably born in Czernowitz, in approximately 1920, the brother of Marcus Herer and Rosa [Rita] Herer Guttman.  

I would appreciate any advice about how to look for relatives in Russia - thank you.
