Robert Winter thinks that there were buildings with two entrances and
this probably indicated which entrance it was. In some addresses it
is written "a.o." after the number. He thinks a.o. stands for' ab ovo'

In my opinion we can exclude the latin "ab ovo". And "außerordentlich"
doesn't make sense in my opinion.

I would suggest to contact the Stadtarchiv (local archives) of Würzburg
and ask them. They should know!

Ukraine vital records on Jewishgen complete? #ukraine

galmar55@...
 

Hi. I've been on Jewishgen for a while searching for the Moldova side of
my family, now I'm searching for the Ukraine side.

My grandfather is >from Kiev and grandmother is >from Kazatin. But when I
looked for their birth and marriage records on Jewishgen, I couldn't
find them. I didn't see any records >from Kazatin for anybody, and very
few records for Kiev.

They were both born in Ukraine in the 1880s and 1890s, were married in
Ukraine, then immigrated to the US around 1910.

If I can't find their birth and marriage records on Jewishgen, does that
mean they don't exist? Would I be able to find them if I travelled to
Ukraine? Does Ukraine have archives of old vital records or are they
lost forever?

Thanks very much for any answers.

Can anyone identify the town that this would be associated with? It

JewishGen Worldwide Burial Registry.
Check out the JGSNY database "Burial Societies in the New York
Metropolitan Area."
http://www.jgsny.org/ny-burial-society-database

It allows one to query by the first four letters of the society name.
My first two tries on the full name and then "Hasch" did not work.
Then I tried "Hash." Worked like a charm! They list the town as
Khoshchevatoye.

If this strategy had not worked, I would have suggested calling the
cemetery and asking them for their contact for the society. Then I
would have called that person and asked them.

The JGS (New York)'s database of "Burial Societies in the New York Metro Area"
(http://www.jgsnydb.org/searchcity.htm) indicates that the society is
associated with Khoshchevatoye, Ukraine, and that it has two sections
(Blocks 16 and 18) at Montefiore Cemetery in Queens and another at
Beth Moses Cemetery on Long Island. JOWBR shows a third section at
Montefiore -- on Block 28.

See the JewishGen Communities Database for more about the town...
http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~community~-1041550
Its Ukrainian name appears to be Khashchuvatye.

Updated Schmieheim Germany Kehilalinks Page #germany

Peter Dreifuss
 

To my fellow Gersiggers:

I have updated the Schmieheim, Germany KehilaLinks page. It is at:
http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Schmieheim/Index.html
The update includes:

- a new contributed story by Sandy Barnes about the life of
her great grandfather Morris (Maier) Baumann >from Schmieheim.

- a comprehensive description of research tools (with links
when appropriate) for family researchers wishing to explore their
Schmieheim roots. This includes specific links to all Schmieheim
Jewish vital records I found which cover births, deaths and marriages
for the Landesarchiv Baden-Wuerttemberg between 1819 and 1870.
- An updated and reorganized layout of pages for better navigation.
- Updated all hyperlinks

I enjoy your comments, questions, suggestions and contributions.

DNA to prove parentage #dna

DAVID LEWIN <davidlewin@...>
 

I would love your guidance please.

I am in correspondence with a woman born 1953, who suspects that her
mother did not give birth to her, and is asking for help to find her
birth parents.

She is seriously thinking of taking legal action against members of
her hitherto family for wrongful deeds in the past, and I feel she
must have DNA testing to both prove that she is not her mother's
daughter and perhaps point the direction to her birth parentage.

Whom else can I ask if not you???

Can you please guide me - and bear in mind that I really do not know
anything about X and Y chromosomes etc....

Many thanks

Re: Segal family Romania #general

I'm quite certain they are referring to the King of Romania not a place.
On those forms there is usually reference to the reigning monarch. Clearly
they did not go to civics class at home and did not know his name!
