Judy - you did the dna? I have been thinking about it because I am sure
that I have an asian cross somewhere in there.
What exactly did you find out for your 200+ dollars?

Passport #belarus

renee1056@...
 

I would like to thank Monika for her answer to my passport delima.
She was nice enough to look at my grandmothers passport for me and
let me know that it is writen in Russian, German, and French.
One mystery solved.

Now on to the next.
Is there anyone that will be reading this posting that can read these
languages and translate it for me. I am at a dead end.
I want to find out what country, and port and ship that they came to
the USA on. They came to USA in 1906.
Thank you in advance for reading and posting this.

FW: Re: Mutilation to avoid Conscription #belarus

JSimpson@...
 

Hello List,

I just wanted to add to this that I am also sorry for injecting
any divisive spirit into the forum. It was just totally inappropriate,
and I know better. I consider it an honor to be on this list, to get
the kind of information I am getting, to be able to post queries, and
no one should feel afraid to post anything or any view for fear of
getting "clobbered" as Betsy Brazy put it so eloquently. There is
certainly room for differences, as I am sure that Naomi and myself
have a few, but there should be no room for clobbering.

To quote whoever was the guy who said it "Even if you are right, but
you communicate it in a wrong spirit, you are wrong." And that is not
to say that I think I am totally right. I am probably more of a romantic
when it comes to history than Naomi. Naomi's skeptical side is a side
that I need to embrace to a certain degree, though I don't really want
to. I am in the preliminary stages of writing a book about the life
of my great great grandfather, and I want to give full expression to
the emotional impact of his stories, so that they will grab the reader.
The danger is that I may misrepresent history for the sake of making
an interesting read.

So, thank you Naomi, for your reply, and I really mean that.
I am just a young guy, fresh into all this stuff, and, if I am ever to
succeed in any of my goals, I need to be open to every one's input, no
matter how much it goes against my grain.

And thank you Betsy for reminding us that we are all related. As the
good book says (to sound like Tevye) at the very beginning of all our
geneologies we all find the same set of parents.

Sincerely and sorrowfully,

Joseph Simpson

MIGRATION IN THE 1880S #belarus

Sharpgenie@...
 

Hello to all,

I cannot find any information on my great-grandfather, Elias Silverstein
(Hebrew name Elihu) who states on the 1920 Boston, MA census that he is >from
Grodno and is alien. He arrived in the United States about 1883. I just
recently found my Jewish connection and was wondering if there was any
specific migration route that was used >from Grodno at that time. Any help
would be appreciated.

BRISK Yizkor Translation Project #belarus

JSimpson@...
 

Hello all,


I just wanted to make a quick and important announcement. I've
decided to coordinate the Brest Yiskor Book translation project. I hope I am
not getting in over my head, but if this Yizkor book is as great as others
I've seen, I just have to be able to read it (in english), plus I need the
info in there for my book I am writing. If you or someone you know (sounds
like a commercial for insurance) is interested in the Jewish community of
Brest Litovsk (Brest, Brisk, Brzesc nad Bugeum, and however other ways it's
called) please consider donating any amount great or small to the effort.
Per Joyce Field, "The Brest translation fundraising project is now
online at the YB JewishGen-erosity page at
http://www.JewishGen.org/JewishGen-erosity/YizkorTrans.html. You may now
make online contributions to the project or print out the form and submit
contributions by mail, designating the project on the form." Also please
consider an additional amount to JewishGen, which provides administrative
and infrastructure services to the yizkor book project at no cost.
