Yiskor Books #belarus

Jack Blagman <jackbee21@...>
 

How does one find a list of yiskor books for shtetls in Belarus?
Additionally, how can I determine if such a book exists for a small town
(Narovlyer, Narovler, Narovlya) in the Rechitsa Uzed, Gubierna of
Minsk. And whether it was translated or not? Is there any one site for
checking this?

The necrology >from the Kobrin yizkor book is online at the JG yizkor
book web site at

Scroll down the alphabetical list to Kobryn and click. Haim Sidor
prepared the transliteration and George Bill, for the landsmanschaft
in Israel, has given us permission to publish additional sections of
the yizkor book on our web site.

Beider? #general

Kirsten Gradel <kmgradel@...>
 

In Avotaynu 1996 I found a notice >from Alexander Beider to the
effect that he was willing (for payment of course) to look for
surnames and towns in the 1906-12 voter lists he used for his
book. I am interested in asking that service >from him, but the
address - and I am sure his price - might have changed since
1996.

Does he have an e-mail address?

Thanks

Laptops in archival research #general

MBernet@...
 

Has anyone much experience in using a laptop for genealogy research?

My fantasy is to buy a simple laptop and a hand held scanner and
use it to copy to hard- disks information both >from documents and
from records. As an alternative to hand-held scanner, perhaps a
digital camera would be useful?

Questions:
1. Do archives generally permit use of scanners (might damage the
original?) or cameras (flash might annoy patrons?)
2. Do libraries and records offices generally permit this
3. What are the specific techniques I must use, both with hand-held
scanners and with digital cameras?
4. What other ways, aside >from scanning or photographing, can a
laptop be profitably used on site?
5. Would I have to buy a state-of-the-art laptop, or can I get by
with something two or three years old? If so, where would be a
good place to buy it, new or used?
6. What about the imaging system, scanner or digital camera; what
should I look for?

Any other advice or caveats?

Many thanks. Please make your response to the List rather than to
me individually, as I think this might prove to be useful to many
others.

searching for Blacher, Blecheris, Bloch in USA #general

Allan Blacher <blacher@...>
 

We have recently 'found' an important missing branch of our
tree and are now praying that the few clues we have will
help us to find the remaining members of this same branch.

What we know is as follows
1) Parents - Chaim-Ber BLACHER or BLECHERIS and Perl PERTCHIK.
2) Lived in Ziesmariai/Zezmer in Lithuania before the War.
3) 11 Children - names include Mordechai, Tuvia, Sheine (traced -
went to Uruguay), Zuske (traced - went to Uruguay). Other names
might include Avraham and Esther. One son had children in Lithuania
called Chaikle and Taibke.
4) At least one of the children (do not know if it was male or
female) went to the USA between 1900 and 1930 and might have used
the surname BLOCH.
5) A sister is believed to have lived in New York and had a son
named Bernard. She is said to have drowned.

Do any of these clues mean anything to you?
Our fingers are tightly crossed!

Ellis Island/Bridgeport, Conn. #general

Foodphile@...
 

After searching arrivals at Ellis Island (1906) for months, I have just
learned that my grandfather, Harry HIRSCH and grandmother, Lena LEDER did
not arrive to Ellis Island afterr all. I was told they arrrived at
Bridgeport, Conn. I am not aware of immigrants coming into Bridgeport.
Is anyone familiar with this? I know New Bedford, Mass. is close by and
that's a possibility. If anyone has any knowledge of Bridgeport being an
arrival point please let me know. Thanks so much.

For researchers in Israel: Bank Leumi dormant accounts #general

Leon.Koll@...
 

Bank Leumi of Israel published on its website the information
of accounts that were non-active last 45 years. It may be useful
for genealogists doing research in Israel. The URL is:
http://www.bankleumi.co.il/kvootzat_bll/cheshbonot_totzaot.asp?

Left form is for exact search, the right is for fuzzy one.
Part of names are in Latin, other are in Hebrew.
The Hebrew-enabled browser will help, especially for Hebrew names.
The search algorithm behaviour isn't straightforward, you have to
be creative to understand how it works.
Please don't send me the questions about this website.

Good luck !

Sachs - Cartoon/Kartun Family Link #southafrica

Michael N. Cartoon <mcartoon@...>
 

I was looking at some results >from the All Lithuania Database (ALD) -
http://www.jewishgen.org/litvak/all.htm and, although I did not discover
any new Cartoo/Kartun relatives, I did find a link to the Sachs family.
Cyril (Shlomo) Cartoon son of Yitzchok Binyamin Cartoon was mourned by
the Sachs family. Now I have known about Cyril and his father and many
other Cartoon relatives >from South Africa (Krugersdorp, Cape Town,
Johannesburg, etc.). But I do not have any Sachs family links in my
tree. This is likely due to the limited information I have on Yitzchok
Binyamin Cartoon's family. Does anyone have infromation on this link or
any other Cartoon/Kartun families >from South Africa?

The Kartun/Cartoon family originated >from Lithuania (Siauliai,
Josvainiai, Gruzdziai) and emmigrated to South Africa between 1890 and
the early 1900s. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Please
respond to:
