East End London - Yalford St. #general

Gailcopela@...
 

When my gf was born his family lived at 11 Yalford St. So far as I can tell,
this street is no longer in existence. I believe it was not far >from the start
of Whitechapel Rd.

Does anyone else have family that lived on this street, or know anything about
its history? Please respond privately. TIA

B'nai Abraham also has a cemetery that goes back a long way. It
might be a good place to look for some genealogy material.

It's probably one of the two or three most common names to come out of the
Pale of Settlement. The other is Lev or Levy, which is the other name from
which I am descended.

Passenger Ships to US #general

Sherry Kamens asked, >> Additionally, where would one look for
ships prior to 1900? Thanks Sherry Kamens, Wayne, NJ
Sjkmb4@aol.com <<

There is a book called "Adler's Directory", "A compilation of
passenger steamships sailing >from European ports and arriving in
the Eastern ports of the United States >from 1899 to 1929,
inclusive." This book was published and distributed by the
"Steamship Directory Publishers, 116 Fifth Ave., New York City".
I cannot tell you where or if you can locate this book. It is
a valuable companion to Morton Adler, and should be reprinted and
computerized. (Maybe somebody would like to pass the info to
Cimmorelli.)
I can tell you that several years ago I found a copy of Adler's
in the Free Library of Philadelphia, 19th St. & The Parkway,
(Philadelphia, PA, USA) in the Business & Industry Department.
The book was under lock and key because of its very fragile condition.
I can also tell you that although the title page says "...1899
to 1929, inclusive", there are no listings for the years 1906
through 1927.

Re: Where are the vital records? #galicia

The2thdkdr@...
 

In a previous post, I mentioned I was looking for the vital
records for Mikolayuv (coordinates 4946-2420), a shtetl near Lviv.

The moderator noted that they were probably in the Polish
National Archives in Warsaw and in the Lviv Archives.

Does anyone know if LDS would have microfilmed these records?
These records would all be dated before 1900, so personal privacy
factors are not applicable here.

Wayne Roth, Brooklyn, New York The2thdkdr@aol.com

MODERATOR NOTE: There are very few LDS microfilms available for
Jewish records in towns in Galicia. There are some microfilms at LDS
Family History Libraries for Jewish Galician records, mostly in the
provinces of Krakow and Rzeszow in Western Galicia (now Poland). One
exception is the film for Lwow (now Ukraine). As far as we know,
these films are for the following towns:

Biecz
Brzesko
Krakow (already included in JRI-Poland database on
Lezajsk
Lemberg (Lwow)
Pruchnik
Tarnow
Wadowice
Wisnicz

Refer to Suzan Wynne's book, Finding Your Jewish Roots in Galicia: A
Resource Guide, published by Avotaynu, Inc. If you know of any other
LDS films for Jewish records in Galicia, please inform this forum.
