thesis for a Doctorate degree concerning the Jews of Kiev and Kiev Province

The book is a historical guide "one hundred shtetls of Ukraine" issue 1

outstanding people within the shtetls, both lay and spiritual.

The project is being undertaken by Israel. The issue I have is written in
Russian. I don't know whether it also was published in English. You may
wish to pass this information on. The Israel site is the Jerusalem Center

As much as I would like to help all of you in looking up ancestors in the NYC
1918 phone book, it is becoming impossible. I have been bombarded with about
300 requests. Perhaps another time if you have only one name.
For the 300+ of you who needed that information, may I suggest two routes:
First, try your local large library. I was visiting Los Angeles, and
discovered they have an entire set of NY City Directories on microfilm at the
Central Downtown library in the Genealogy room.
Second, try your local Mormon Family History Center. They can order the
microfilm >from Salt Lake, and have it for you in a couple of weeks. You can
order as many rolls as you want; the cost is between $3.00 and $4.00 per roll.
They'll hold the roll for a few weeks, and you can renew it for another few
weeks. They may even have some rolls on permanent loan - mine did.

Besides. this way you can look up as many names as you want, and make prints of
each page for your records!

Here are some film numbers which may help (I did this very project a few months
ago)

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

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.
