Surname PRINCE from Jaroslaw #general

S&E Shamroth <shamroth@...>
 

In researching my maternal line I have been examining the LDS records from
Jaroslaw for the surname Prince. Although the records are in Cyrillic, it
is clear that nothing resembling "Prince" can be found. Would Prince be an
Anglicized version of a Polish Name? Any help would be appreciated.

Does anyone know where in the New York to Boston area I can find Greater
Pittsburgh phone directories and/or city directories >from the 1940s?

Re: Telephone and letters in France #general

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

As I'm a retired person and as I'm neither a chairwoman or a working member
in my genealogical association, I have a bit of time and I use to make
searches when people have problems with French language. I have already
found many people who were looking for by American Jewishgeners, and I
sometimes write letters for them too. Of course, I couldn't do that on a
large scale, but I'm ready to do my utmost to help anyone who asks me, for
free, just to help. Free mutual assistance seems to me the main goal of a
genealogical association (jewish or non jewish), as well for its members as
for non members. Except when searchers become too numerous.

As for telephone calls, it's a special problem. First of all, telephone
costs are rather heavy in France, and we can't begin with receiving money,
exchange etc. Secundly, when you call, you never know if you are disturbing
or not, and if it's not the right time, you may waste any opportunity of
having success. It's better with a letter : the addressee can put it aside
on his desk and answer when the period is more favourable.

As for letters, after my own and frequent experience, not everyone in
France knows another language than one's mother tongue, by far !! And
sometimes, when people don't know how to translate letters, they just throw
them in the waste paper basket. The best thing, on my personal opinion, is
always to write in your correspondent's mother tongue, and add an
International Reply Coupon (if you are writing >from abroad) or a Stamped
Return Envelope (if you are writing >from France to France). As I wrote
above, I'm ready to help with translation >from English into French, if
necessary.

Kurt BACH - late, of Florida #general

Stephen T. Falk <sfalk81162@...>
 

I am interested in finding any children, or other relatives, of the late
Kurt BACH. I believe that he lived the last years of his life in the
Miami, Florida area. He may have died there in 1994.

I am hoping to learn about his BACH family, and also his relation to a
LANDAU family with whom I am in contact, and which may be related to him
(and to me).

Thank you,

Town of Dubossar(i), Ukraine #general

Lancy
 

Part of our family are listed as having been born in the town of
Dubossar or Dubossari, in the region of Cherson in Ukraine. I have found
a town Cherson not far >from Odessa at 4638 3236, but I do not seem to be
able to locate Dubossar(I). Is it possible that this town no longer
exists? Or perhaps the name has been changed?

Thanks for your help!

Vedemosti #general

Bert Lazerow <lazer@...>
 

Someone asked about a Jewish "vidimosti". I remember
that in Tsarist Russia, newspapers were published in each province
called something like Vedemosti Gubernski; so the word might
mean something like "newspaper", "report", or "gazette", and
might be the name of a Russian Jewish newspaper.

Re: Evidence of death fro SS-5 form #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

Jeremy Berger asked:

When requesting a copy of the SS-5 application, I read that you need to
provide evidence of death.
Can I do this by including a printout of an SSDI index website search
showing a person's name, Social Security number and date of death?
Or do I have to have include a copy of a death certificate?


Yes, the SSDI is sufficient proof-better for them than a death
certificate because it has the SS# of the deceased, so they know which
Sam Cohen you are talking about.
