FISCHER family in Czechoslovakia #general

amnon fisher <amnonf@...>
 

I'm looking for information on Fischer family, who lived in
Czechoslovakia >from 1800 until 1946 (I know it's a big range, but I
don't have the exact years).

I have some names of peoples:
parents: Herman & Elizabeth (Before getting married, her second name was
Varady, lived in Pochov)
children: Ernest, Emre (or Emrich), Yosef, Lenka (married to Fritz
BRAMER >from Praha), Erena (married to Ernoy) they lived in Velery Meder and Bratislava.

I also know that in 1936 Herman moved to Hungery, and lived in Budapest
and later in Bonihad.
Any information would be helpful.
Please reply to amnonf@canaan.co.il
Thanks in advance.

translating Russian records #general

Judith Frazin's book is terrific for translating Polish documents that
are in Polish. Is there a reference for translating Polish records that
are in Russian (post 1868)?

SS Arrival Dates #general

Don Gallard <dg2286@...>
 

Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond to my recent inquiry
concerning the information on the New York Passenger List index cards.
Taking the advice I received, I purchased the National Archives
publication, "Immigrant & Passenger Arrivals". When I discovered that
the information on the rolls were accessed according to the date of the
ship's arrival, I decided to cross reference the dates I found on some of
the index cards against those listed for the same ships on Cimorelli. Lo
and behold, I found many discrepancies. Some by just a day or two, but
many by much more.

Since I am planning a trip to the National Archives in DC and want to
maximize my time there, I am trying to determine which rolls I want to
view in advance of my going there. So the question is, does anyone know
which would be more accurate, the INS index cards or Cimorelli?

Yiskor Books #galicia

Carole Feinberg <feincgs@...>
 

Shalom, Fellow Galicianers,

I purchased "The Holocaust of Volhynian Jews 1941-1944" directly >from Yad
Vashem. They charged $25 plus $10 postage, which was less than the $55
quoted price I read in one of the Gesher Galicia postings dated Feb. 22/23,
1999.

I have no axe to grind either way, having had no financial or previous
dealings with the book source in question. I think they should list the
Volhynia book in the section of Yad VaShem publications, since I believe
Yad VaShem was the publisher. That would be a moot point for Galicianers,
anyway, since Volhynia borders easternmost Galicia. Perhaps there may have
been some overlap, but, basically, I found Volhynia and Galicia to have
been distinct >from each other.

As a service to genealogists, I believe that the book dealer should include
a note that not all so-called yiskor books contain a necrology, a list of
decedents, which is one of the main interests of genealogists.

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.
