Re: Grandfather's naturalization #ukraine

Roberta Berman <danber@...>
 

Alice Keppler's query:
My mother does not think that her father was ever Naturalized. Is it
possible that he could live in the US over 60 years, own a business and
not be a citizen? Wouldn't he need some kind of Visa? I believe that he
came to the US around 1906 and dies in 1978, were the laws that lax? And
of course, now I wonder if any of my grandparents became Naturalized. My
mother is only sure that her mother was, because she remembers the
swearing in (sometime in the '30's).
So the next part of my question is: IF someone was never Naturalized,
then where could I go to try to find answers to where they were from,
actual surnames, etc?
Anyone who was in the United States in 1940 and who was not a citizen
was required to register under the Alien Registration Act. If the
person is deceased, you can request a copy of the file >from the INS
under the Freedom of Information Act. Ask for a copy of the complete
file (you never know what else might be in there). See their website at
www.ins.usdoj.gov for the address.

I am researching Polonnoye and Labun, which were next to Izyaslav. I know
both had cemeteries at one time, but now only Polonnoy, the large town, still
has the remnants of a cemetery.

What names are you researching?

how to create a mini-GEDCOM from a family tree maker file #general

George Farkas <george@...>
 

Hi,

Since I posed my question, many others have asked me to let them know the
answer. Since I am sure that there are others who would also like to know
(even though they didn't write to me), I am asking the moderator to let
the answer be posted.

The best answer on how to create a GEDCOM >from a family tree maker file,
not a GEDCOM of the entire family but just the descendants of a certain
person (courtesy Stanley Diamond and others):

1. Get the earliest ancestor that you want in your gedcom on the screen
2. >from the view menu, click on "Outline descendent tree".
You get a list starting >from that ancestor on your screen.
3. >from the File menu, click on "Copy/Export individuals in Outline
descendent tree".
4. On the dialogue box that comes up, Select gedcom as the "Save as" type.
5. Enter a filename for your new gedcom
6. Click on save.

Have good kosher and happy Pesach,

How to Access Mass. Deaths? #general

Carol Raspler
 

I need a Death Certificate for someone (evidently without Social Security
number) whom I believe died in Massachusetts between 1972 and 1990. Does an
accessible index exist for those dates? Or can I just write to the State
with the same general info I've given here
and expect them to do the research - for a fee? Thanks. Carol Raspler, Delray

Re: Lask info #general

Seflaum@...
 

Dear Fellow Genners,

Miriam Margoyles asks if there is any JRI-Poland activity for the town of
Lask. There most definitely is: the Lask PSA project! This is the effort to
obtain indices to *all* Jewish vital records *not* microfilmed by the LDS /
Mormons -- usually >from the late 19th century. The JRI-Poland team in
Warsaw is currently indexing the Jewish vital records of Lask and we expect
completion in approximately two weeks. If your parents, grandparents or
extended family lived in Lask in the late 19th century, you will soon have
access to records you never before imagined possible.

When checking the JRI-Poland web site for projects involving your town,
always check not only the "Shtetl CO-OP" page, but also the "Polish State
Archives" (PSA) page. Go to
<http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/psastat.htm>, click on "Status
Reports: PSA Projects underway!," the last line in the heading of the page,
which will take you to the PSA Projects page. The town of Lask is listed in
the "Lodz Archives" table.

The town leader for the Lask PSA project is Bruce Morgenstern,
<bjmorgenstern@erols.com>. If you have any questions, please do not
hesitate to contact Bruce or myself.

Regards,
Shirley Rotbein Flaum

Thanks to Warren Blatt & Pamela ? who kindly replied to my query
about Lask. In case the info is useful to others, I reproduce it with
permission:

I can find no reference to any JRI-Poland activity for Lask, either any
current data, nor any formed Shtetl CO-OP... so you'll have to go to
the original archival data.

There are no records >from the Prussian period (1793-1807), but there
are records >from the Russian period (1808-1918) and the Polish period
(1918+).

The LDS have microfilmed the 1808-1825 Roman Catholic civil register
of Lask, which would contain the Jewish births, marriages and deaths.
LDS microfilms #808,461 and #808,462.

They've also microfilmed the Jewish registers, 1827-1869 (6 rolls:
#808,471-475, #767,128). The later 19th-century Lask Jewish
registers are at the Polish State Archives branch in Lodz, and
the 20th-century Jewish registers through 1939 are at the Urzad
Stanu Cywilnego (USC = Civil Registration Office) in Lask, all
unmicrofilmed.

more precise information about Jewish records of Lask.

(Va'ad Yotz'ei Tuchin v'Kripe in Hebrew) published a book in 1990 entitled

is reason to believe that is still active today, or that some of its
members may be contacted. I agree with Jacqueline and especially appeal to
Israeli genners with any knowledge of this organization to post that

address and phone number for "Moreshet" in Tel Aviv, on Leonardo da Vinci

HNOH Welcome-Jewish Orphanages in the United States at
http://www.scruz.net/~elias/hnoh is pleased to announce a special web page
was added to the site for the Brooklyn Jewish Orphanage, Pride of Judea
Childrens' Home. There you will find the history, alumni information, book
reviews for "An Orphan Has Many Parents", by Stan Friedland and Phill
Craft. A wonderful book about growing up in the Pride. There is also
photographs of the home.

Also the Jewish Orphanages Page was updated with additions and corrections
and a photograph was added >from the New Orleans Jewish Childrens' Home .

Sam George Arcus, an alumni of the Hebrew National Orphan Home, has just
published an historical and compelling book entitiled "Deja Views Of An
Aging Orphan". This book not only includes memories, but lists many names
of the children who lived at the HNOH. I have created an HNOH Book Reviews
page that contains many wonderful reviews of Sam's story.

There is now over 2,000 URL's listed for genealogical research on the
Jewish Genealogy Page and the Other Genealogical Resources Page.

If you believe you have had a relative in an orphanage in the NY area,
check out the Federal and State Census lists that are also on the site as
well as the Orphan and Foundlings Burial Page, where many names are listed.

There is much information to be found on my Orphan Archives: Records and
Holdings Page. The Orphanage Alumni Reunions Page has a section where
people are searching for lost friends, as well as a section of alumni
names.
