Re: Uranium Steamship Company #general

I'd like to learn more about a possible relative who came to America
via the SS Uranium in 1913, >from Rotterdam to Halifax, ...

You need a maritime historian to help here and you are luck that I am
one. There are some interesting surprises here in this story. The ships
may have sailed >from Rotterdam but the company was British. It also
appears looking at the records that Canadian Northern Railway Company
owned at least part interest in the shipping line. It is a fairly
tangled web >from what I see.

The company was formed in 1909 and went out of business at the
beginning of WWI -- most of its ships including the Uranium were sunk
in the War.

You might try the maritime museums in England, Rotterdam and Halifax to
see if anything more exists about the ship or the line. I suspect the
records long ago became compost. The shipping line did not survive
World War I so you will not find the records stashed anywhere else.

You can also look at historical newspapers but that will not tell you
more about your family on the ship, unless of course they were on a
rather well documented crossing in January 1913. The Uranium stranded
near Halifax in dense fog and the passengers were landed before the
ship could be refloated. I am sure the January 1913 Halifax newspapers
have lots of stories. She was not rescued and able to proceed to New
York until February 1913.

The firm while not well remembered owned a ship called Volturno as well
which was one of the most notorious because of a terrible fire at sea in
October 1913 killing 136 people.

Hope this helps a little. If you have more questions fire away.

Vital Records and the JGFF #general

Sam Schleman <Samara99@...>
 

It occurs to me that many people who are researching towns within
pre-Trianon Hungary may not have entered their research interest into the
JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF).

The JGFF is a database that lists the surnames and towns that various people
are researching. One can query this database either by surname or by town
name. More information on the JGFF can be found on JewishGen's web site
at < http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff >.

Entering your information into the JGFF is extremely important.
Not only does it enable you to potentially connect with others researching
the same towns and/or surnames, but the Hungarian Vital records Project
uses the JGFF to determine which towns are to be transcribed, and it is
the source we use to contact people to assist with performing the
transcriptions.

We urge all those researching towns in pre-Trianon Hungary to make sure
you have entered all towns and surnames into the JGFF. The more people
researching a town, the more likely we are to transcribe that town's vital
records. And the JGFF is the primary means we use to determine who to
contact about transcribing those records.

Thanks,

Sam Schleman

POKRASSA Family Website #general

aiginsburg
 

I have created a website at
http://yousaypokrassa.googlepages.com/home to help serve as a clearing
house for people with this family name. These families originate in
the Ukraine mostly in the Kiev Gubernia, and trace their origins to
various towns along the Dneiper River >from Kiev downstream. Our most
significant success, which was accomplished by search the web with
google, and by searching for skype users was to reunion a large French
American family with their cousins who stayed behind in the Ukraine,
and are still there as well as in Israel and the US. After losing
touch during the 1930s because of Stalin, they were just reunited
after seventy years. The family name can be variously spelled as
Pokrass, Pokrassa, Pokross, Pockriss, Pokrasse, Pockros...

Lookup needed in NY State death index 1954 #general

Ted Gostin
 

I'm hoping that someone who will be reviewing the New York State death index
soon would be willing to check one death date for me. I am trying to get
the exact citation for a Martin Schenke who probably died in White Plains in
1954. If anyone is checking the index for themselves and has time to do
this lookup, I'd be grateful. I want to get the exact date and confirm the
place before ordering the certificate.

Thanks.

Ilya Zeldes Posting Re Extraordinary Commission #general

Joseph Fibel <jfibel@...>
 

Genners

Ilya Zeldes asked about the Extraordinary Commission Reports. They are
available both >from Yad Vashem and the U S Holocaust Memorial Museum in
Washington DC. Mention your town name and either will makes copies.
I have gotten excerpts with only family names >from Yad Vashem, and I
would guess U S H M M would send you the same, or complete town lists.
Of course, the names are in Cyrillic so you'll have to get them translated
unless you already know Russian.

Copying charges are inexpensive.

Dr. Erno Schwarcz, Miskolc #hungary

Giselle Bodziony
 

Dear Genners

I read a couple of days ago that the topic was set to the deportataion of Jews >from Miskolc.
Therefore I would kindly ask if there is somebody who survived the deportation of June 12, 1944 - or knows anything about it or could tell me something about the following persons: Dr. Ernö Schwarcz, Miskolc, lawyer, 59 years of age; his son, Endre Schwarcz, 17 years old at that time. Both were deported that day - and under not know circumstances they managed to take refuge to Budapest. Both were killed in Budapest in December 1944. Dr. Schwarcz' wife, Erzsebet Schwarcz, was also deported in June 12, 1944 and finally transported to Lichtenau. She died there in 1945. Is there anybody who might tell me something about her?
Dr. Ernö Schwarz was my grandfather.

Thank you very much for your help.
