Knyszyn - shtetl - Poland #general

jsher@...
 

My brother told me of a shtel near Bialystock called Knyszyn ( I think thats
the spelling) Supposedly our great grandparents died in a huge fire there
and I'm just trying to find more information about that and maybe finding
out the names of people perished? I'm not sure of their last names - it is
near the name BERIJINSKY- or BREZENSKY (grandfather's side) ( don't know if
I have the right spelling) because it was changed to Chesler during the war
I think, also LUBELSKY. (grandmother's side >from Bialystock I believe). I'm
not sure where to look for this information. I checked the JewishGen
shtetl website and found a map if Knyszyn but would like more info. Thanks.

I have Canadian Form 30A films T15101 & T15105 on loan for lookup #general

NormK12065
 

JGenners,

I have two Canadian immigration Form 30A films on load for a couple of weeks.
I will be willing to do lookups for the range of names as follows:

Film T15101 - LINKA, Miklos to LLOYD, Ruth
Film T15105 - LUNNEY, William to MACBRIDE

I just found my mother on these films with her original given name which I
never knew. It also confirmed that she came to Canada with the surname
LITVAK and immigrated to the U.S. a month later as LEVINE.

Workman's Circle-Cemetaries #general

Ron Goldman <preshtek@...>
 

Has anyone in the Baltimore and Philadelphia areas heard of cemetaries
in those cities named Workman's Circle?

It seems to me that this would be the name of a particular organization
whose members would have bought plots within that "section" of a
cemetary rather than the name of the cemetary itself.

If this *is* the case, I need the help of any genners in those cities who
would know the actual name of the cemetary in which a Workman's
Circle organizational section can be found.

Thanx.

Ron Goldman, FL.

Historical Jewish Demography #general

Arnold Davidson <arnoldbd@...>
 

A few years ago a message was posted that requested information on
worldwide Jewish populations through the centuries. My search of the
archives showed no response and I also received no response when I tried to
contact the original poster. Does anyone know where one can find this
information?

19th Annual Conference on Jewish Genealogy, Aug 8-13, 1999-Sephardic--Resources #general

Jgsny@...
 

Attendees at the 19th Annual Conference on Jewish Genealogy, August 8-13,
1999 will hear a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Malka, the creator of the Separdic
genealogy website.

In this lection on Resources for Sephardic Genealogy, Dr. Jeffrey Malka will
give an overview of the inherent differences between Sephardic and Ashkenazi
genealogy sources; the origin of Jewish names, Sephardic onomastics and
sources available to researchers; Sephardic naming patterns; traditional
sources such as interviews, naturalization and cemetery records; specifically
Sephardic sources such as: Sephardic ketoubot, Spanish notarial and
inquisition records, passenger lists in Seville's Archivo general de Indias,
and Alliance Israelite Universelle archives. In addition, he will provide
information on internet resources of value to the Sephardic genealogy and
will discuss the resources in some countries with large Sephardic
populations.

Dr. Jeffrey Malka is an orthopaedic surgeon in the Washington DC area who
became interested in genealogy in the mid 90's. Enthused by the enormous
resources and help available to him in researching his Ashkenazi ancestry, he
was struck by the relative paucity of such information in researching his
Sephardic ancestry. As he gradually learned here and there of sources useful
in Sephardic genealogy, he shared them with others and developed a "Sephardic
Genealogy Resources" website to help fellow Sephardic genealogy researchers.

A copy of the Conference registration application can be printed directly from
the web site (http://members.aol.com/nyc99conf). Check out the lecture
schedule now available. The Conference will be held at the Marriott Marquis
Hotel, located in the heart of revitalized Times Square. Note: Early
registration must be postmarked by May 15, 1999.

See you at the Conference!
