Not aware of any link with Manny Shinwell.

For those of you interested in learning more about SHINWELL, you can go to
the following site for a start:

Also, Janner and Shinwell got their peerages in the same year.

Trying to sort out ancestors and names/REIZER #general

Merv & Naomi Barnett
 

I need some expert advice here!

Many moons ago when I started compiling our REIZER family tree, I was given the
information that my ggrandfather was Eliezer REIZER, born around 1846 in Grodno.

In very recent times a new-found branch of the REIZER family has come across a
bundle of old letters >from the 1930s-1940s. These letters were >from family in
Grodno to family in Argentina and California. As was customary in those times,
the names mentioned in the correspondence was always first names. The person was
identified by their husband/wife's name, or their father/mother's name. In
these letters there is talk of Leizer Velvul as being the patriarch. His level
on the family tree would have been equivalent to that of Eliezer REIZER
mentioned above.

I have made an assumption that the names Eliezer and Leizer Velvul are the same
one Hebrew, one Yiddish), but in my case they are definitely different people.
How can we have two ? brothers with the same name? I wondered about them being
cousins but this is just a guess. They both had numerous children - too many to
be the same person. I have also thought that one could have been the youngest
child and the other the oldest child of a large family with the oldest dying so
the name could be used again but I feel they both had too many children for this
to have occurred.

Any suggestions??

late 19th century postcards with Synagogues #hungary

Andras Koltai <kolamcg@...>
 

Dear Siggers,

There is a private collection of some 1-2 thousand
postcards dated late 19th century all depicting
Synagogues of Hungary. This is a very unique
collection showing Synagogues not existing any more.

I have been approached by a university professor who
intends to get this collection published. <snip> I would ask you to contact me
off-list. I have neither direct, nor indirect interest
in the project - I just believe such a collection
should be made public.

Kind regards,

Andras Koltai

Three Steve Morse Announcements #general

Joy Rich <joyrichny@...>
 

Steve Morse has updated his One-Step form that searches ancestry.com's Boston
Passenger Arrivals database. The database now covers 1820-1943, whereas it
previously included only 1891-1943. Steve generated a list of all of the M277
roll numbers and dates to allow access to the manifest directly by roll/frame or
by date using the One-Step "Searching the Boston Passenger Lists in One Step."

He also generated a list of all of the Boston ship arrivals in the 1820-1891
period for the One-Step form that searches for ship arrivals, "Searching for
Ships in the Boston Microfilms in One Step." Both are listed under "Other Ports
of Immigration" at http://www.stevemorse.org.

Steve also just created a One-Step form for searching zabasearch.com. He now has
four One-Step forms capable of obtaining birthday information. The other three
are for ancestry.com, birthdatabase.com, and privateeye.com/peoplefinders.com.
They are the first four items listed in the "Births, Deaths, and other Vital
Records" section at (http://www.stevemorse.org).

Steve also just implemented two new features on his One-Step search form
"Converting Address to Latitude/Longitude." Retitled "Converting Address to/>from
Latitude/Longitude in One Step, " you can now also convert in the opposite
direction - >from latitude/longitude to an address. You can now also convert
more than one address or more than one latitude/longitude at a time by using
Batch Mode. The One-Step is listed under "Calendar, Sunrise/Sunset, Maps" at
http://www.stevemorse.org. At first blush, this may not seem to have much
to do with genealogy, but Steve has found that the latitude/longitude search
tool gets a very large number of hits.
