Canadian Census Campaign History Written #general

jan meisels allen <janmallen@...>
 

This is for those interested the history of the Canadian Census
campaign waged to get the census released and the "compromise" of
the "opt-in" question. Canadian Senator Lorna Milne, who spearheaded
the long campaign waged to regain the public access to Historic
Census records that genealogist and historians believed regulations
attached to the Privacy Act already stated that the public could have,
has written a book, titled "Deeply Rooted - The story of one Senator's
battle to preserve the Historic Census results. It can be found on
Senator Milne's website at http://www.sen.parl.gc.ca/lmilne/ There is
no cost to download the book.

This was announced by Gordon Watts, Co-chair, Canada Census Committee.
I have no interest in the book, other than it portrays an interesting
"battle" to preserve open census in Canada.

I would like to know if there were many households with the name REICHLINE.
Chasing a name like REICHLINE leaves you chasing many
variant spellings. An ancestor of mine married a Rakhlin in Nezhin
Ukraine in 1886. He was originally registered in Novo-Aleksandrovsk
uezd, which is not far >from Vitebsk, and I have seen the name spelled
Rakhlin, Raikhlin, Roklin, Roikhlin, Rokhlin. Alexander Beider in
his Dictionary of Jewish Surnames >from the Russian Empire points out
that this is a matronymic for people who are children of Rakhel, and
specifies areas where it is particularly found, but none of them is
Vitebsk. Beider does give the spelling Reikhin, but not
Reichline. I do not recall seeing many Russian names ending with
-line; could that be an American spelling, or did you find it in a
Russian document?

Family Search - Long Shot - Hirsch of Chicago #hungary

Jerry Zeisler <jzeisler@...>
 

H-Sig,
I'm taking a long shot on this one because I've hit a brick wall, but am
looking for the family of Rosa HIRSCH ZEISLER (1866 - 1950) who married my
gg-uncle, Ignatz ZEISLER (1854 - 1906) in Chicago in 1887. If you know any
of the people listed below, or any offspring, please contact me off list.

Relatives are as follows:

Parents: Lena SINGER (1838 - 1926) and Morris HIRSCH
Brothers: Armin (1869 - 1936) and Joseph J. (1871 - 1934)

Joseph had 2 children: Frank and Ida

Frank had 4 daughters:
Dorothy BOWNE
Marian HIRSCH
Helen HAYNER
France OLSON

That's all that I have.

Thank you!

Found missing relative #hungary

I am so excited right now, I can hardly write. I sent to the
Consiliul Local Al Municipiului Oradea just to confirm my
grandmother;s sister's married name. I had only recently received
documentation that she had returned >from deportation, having been
told my whole life that the family in Oradea had perished. Turns out
Elvira is still alive, and living in Oradea. Her name is Elvira
Nagy, and she lives on Sovata Street. Does anyone know her? She is
85 years old. I do not speak Hungarian or Romanian ((she apparently
speaks both), so I called my daughter-in-law's mother, who was born
in Oradea in 1946, but left with her family a few years after her
birth. She speaks a "passable" Hungarian. She tried calling the
phone number I was given in the letter, but there was no answer. The
letter I received today said that they actually called Elvira, and
that she was moved by the fact that we were looking for her. I do
NOT understand, how after all these years, and my family telling me
they searched, including going to Oradea, after the War, that this
could have happened. Can anyone help me here? Can anyone call Elvira
and tell her about her family? Is there someone I can call who
speaks English as well, and could interpret for me? I really need
help.

Incorrect Birth Dates on Naturalization Papers and Other Documents #general

paulkozo@...
 

Further to Ira Leviton's email a search on first world war draft cards on a
well known commercial site specifying "Russia" reveals the following numbers
of men with the given birth dates:

24 December 2,077
25 December 4,788
26 December 1,264
27 December 1,002

4 July 1,919

Looking at monthly data March is the most popular month (possibly due to the
start of the Gregorian year in March), May and December are the next most
popular months while November is particularly unpopular.

The 25 December data includes many clearly Jewish names.

Seeking descendants of Chaim and Abram Lieberman from Lunna (Belarus) #general

Ruth M
 

Hello all,
During the last five years I have been researching the Jewish life in the
shtetl of Lunna/Lunno, now in Belarus, formerly in Poland, and have been
trying to trace Lunna descendants over the world. Some of the results are
posted on www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/lunna

I am very grateful to those of you who sent me messages and helped me in
tracing Lunna descendants in the USA and in other places over the world.
I have one more request for help (I suppose it is not the last one):
According to the Ellis Island database, Sheine Lieberman (b. 1881) and her
two sons, Chaim (b. 1901) and Abram (b. 1904), came >from Lunno to Ellis
Island on September 25, 1905. Someone has told me that there was a Lieberman
Company of Moving and Storage in the NYC area and the owners came to the US
from Lunna. The company does not exist any more.
It could be that Chaim and Abram Lieberman were the owners of that company.
Can anyone help me to locate their children/grandchildren?
Thank you.
Best regards,
Ruth Marcus
