Dear Sand,
If the Pennsylvania privay laws will permit, you could order a copy of
the father's death certificate, which would provide you with the
location of his burial. That might, or might not, be easier than
calling all the cemeteries.

Also, there is an association for Jewish Funeral Directors. The page of
their website to search for Jewish Funeral Directors in a specific state
or city is at <http://www.jfda.org/listing_state_city.html>. There are
two listed for Philadelphia. I've had good luck this way.

Good luck!

I suggest you look at teh Encyclopaedia Judaica (under Soloveichik).
There you will find almost 4 pages of information.

The "Real" Nowogrod #poland

RAWhite123@...
 

I have determined that my great grandparents - Morris and Annie Posner - are buried in Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn with the "Chebra Bnai Hashwatim Anshei Navagrat Benevolent Association of the City of New York" Landsmanshaft. It is listed as a Polish group.

I believe that Navagrat (Nowograd) was in the Lomza Gubernia of Poland. But... since there are four Nowograd's in the current state of Poland, I am
not absolutely sure.

I have also determined that Chevra Shomrei Shaboth of Borough Park and Chebra Bnai Hashwatim Anshei Navagrat Benevolent Association petitioned to consolidate. The
petition was offered on July 3, 1929 and granted on July 5, 1929. The resulting corporation was named Shomrei Shabeth Anshei Novogrod.

Can anyone confirm the Nowogrod location or provide further information about the groups origin or the Landsmanshaft.

Thanx in advance for any assistance.

Dear Jewishgenners, I am having a problem with the EIDB accessing the
Original Manifest for the SS Furnessia arriving in NY on July 24th 1911.
It brings up the Campania each time I try. If anyone has had this problem
and knows how to get around it I'd appreciate the help. Alternatively who
should I contact to get the manifest I want.

I have a similar problem concerning the Willehad out of Hamburg or Bremen in
1895 to Ellis Island: calling up the original manifest results in a nice,
clear view of ship called the Trinidad. I ended up a the NY Public Library

On-Line Passenger Indexes #general

m leonards <m_leonards@...>
 

Perhaps it might be useful to review the on-line availability of passenger
manifests, especially for the period 1850-1950. I'm not thinking of the
individual manifests at sites like the Immigrant Ship Transcribers Guild
(http://istg.rootsweb.com/), or Olive Tree Genealogy
(http://olivetreegenealogy.com/ships/index.shtml). Instead, I'm interested
in the projects to index all the available manifests for a given port of
departure or arrival.

This is the list of sites I've located so far. Is anyone aware of any
others?

==

Ports of Departure:

Hamburg: Manifests indexed for the period 1890-1898. Plans are to complete
indexing, first through 1914; and then >from 1850-1934. Fee-based.

http://www.hamburg.de/fhh/behoerden/staatsarchiv/link_to_your_roots/english/index.htm

Bremen: Manifests indexed for the period 1920-1926 (partial). Plans are to
complete indexing through 1939. Free. (Pre-WWI manifests were destroyed
during the that war.)
http://db.genealogy.net/maus/gate/shiplists.cgi?lang=en

Copenhagen: Manifests indexed for the period 1869-1908. Archives has
records through 1940, but it's unclear whether all will be indexed on-line.
Free.
http://www.emiarch.dk/search.php3?l=en

Finland: (I'm not sure of the port(s).) Manifests indexed for the years
1892-1896, 1899-1914, 1920-1939, 1949-1960. Free.
http://www.migrationinstitute.fi/migration/ml/index_e.html

==

Ports of Arrival:

New York City: Obviously, the much-discussed Ellis Island Data Base. Free,
but registration required.
http://www.ellisislandrecords.org
or
http://home.pacbell.net/spmorse/ellis/ellis.html

Galveston, Texas: Manifests indexed for the period 1846-1948. Free, but
registration required.
http://www.tsm-elissa.org/immigration-login.htm

Canada: Manifests indexed for all ports for the period 1925-1935. Free.
http://www.archives.ca/02/02011802_e.html

New South Wales, Australia: Manifests for "assisted immigrants" indexed for
the period 1839-1896. Free.
http://www.records.nsw.gov.au/publications/immigration/introduction.htm

Victoria, Australia: Manifests for "unassisted" immigrants indexed for the
period 1852-1889. Free.
http://www.vic.gov.au/prov/UNASSISTED1.asp

==

Again, if anyone is aware of any other ports whose immigration records have
been made available on-line, please advise the list.

In addition, perhaps we can compile a list of the status of passenger
manifests. For example, the Public Record Office in Kew apparently has all
trans-oceanic lists (incoming and outgoing) >from all UK ports, but they are
unindexed. The CEMLA project is indexing the Buenos Aires immigrant lists,
but does not intend to make them available on-line. The Holland-America
ticket sales records for 1900-1940 are available on microfiche in several
libraries and >from the Family History Library.

The pre-WWI Antwerp lists were destroyed; do the post-WWI lists exist? Are
there any surviving manifests for Cherbourg and Libau? What about the
Italian and other Mediterranean ports? For what years are South African
passenger manifests available, and in what form?

For the United States, the incoming passenger manifests for Philadelphia,
Baltimore and New Orleans have been indexed, and are available on microfilm
at certain National Archives and libraries, and through the Family History
Library. The Boston manifests are also indexed, except for the period
1892-1902. The New York City manifests remain unindexed for the period
1848-1891. The Canadian crossings (St. Albans Lists) are also indexed for
1895-1954, and available on microfilm. I'm not sure about West Coast ports.
And, so far as I know, there are absolutely no outgoing passenger lists
for any US port.

Just a thought.

Re: Sowalki #poland

Willie46@...
 

Dear Henry:

The AGAD project is one of many Polish State Archives (PSA)
projects that have commenced to index the vital records of the
branch archives of the PSA. The AGAD Archives in Warsaw
houses vital records >from the eastern portion of the former
Austrian province of Galicia. This territory is now in Ukraine
but was part of Poland between the Wars, 1921-1939.

There is a separate project to index the holdings (not previously
microfilmed by the LDS Church) of the Suwalki branch of the
PSA. For more information on this project and the name of the
Archive coordinator please see the Suwalki Archive webpage at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/psa/psasuwalki.htm>.

There are also indices for towns in Suwalki Gubernia (including
the town of Suwalki) that were prepared >from the LDS Microfilms.

For more information on the availability of index entries for towns
in Suwalki Gubernia, you should search the Contents of the
Database page at <http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/jripldat.htm>.
This page is organized alphabetically by town and the Gubernia
of the town is identified in the second column. Look for "SU" in the
second column which denotes that town is in Suwalki Gubernia.

Mark Halpern

Are there any AGAD records for Sowalki area? (Also does Marijyampol -
Lithuania have any records?)
If so where do I find them?
I would be grateful if you could put me in the right direction


Drzewica #poland

Michel Heyman <mheyman@...>
 

It has been sometime since I did any research in Poland. Reocrds for
Drzewica are not apparently available through JRI-PSA and/or through LDS.
However, records for Drewica are available at the PSA. I have approximately
five surnames to research at the PSA branch in Radom. What are the latest
means for requesting these records on the Web if any? Must we still write
directly to the PSA or can this be done through "Sezam". If the research
can be done through "Sezam" how do you request a blanket search by surname?
Thank you for any input.


Re: AGAD search #poland

Willie46@...
 

Can someone please tell me how I get >from the JRI-AGAD index to the film
number? I found ancestors listed in the AGAD index. They are listed in
the
index for the town of Nadworna, Galicia, Ukraine, Fond 300 in AGAD Archive.
Unlike Poland indexes, no film numbers are given. What do I do next?
Dear Aliza:

JRI-Poland has two major sources for its records. The first is
LDS films, where the index entry and the search results
summary at the bottom of your search results page show the
Film Number where you can find those records.

The second source is directly >from the branch office of the
Polish State Archives. These are for records that have not been
filmed by the LDS. All AGAD indices are sourced directly >from
the AGAD branch of the Polish State Archives as the AGAD
records were never filmed by the LDS. Please see
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/psa/psastat.htm> for more
explanation of the Polish State Archives Projects.

All the Nadworna records that show an index entry can be
ordered >from AGAD for $11 each through the JRI-Poland
processing system. After searching, you will get a page with
your search results. Copy all the information contained in the
index entries that are of interest to you. Then scroll to the bottom
of the page, where you will see a box with two columns --
"Datafile" and "(LDS Films / contact information)". In the left
column you will see Nadworna births or deaths. Click the
hyperlink "Click here for more information" on the right. Read
the instruction in the web pages that follow and then click
"ORDER FORM."

Now fill out the order form with the information requested,
including the index information for those records you wish to
order. When complete, click "Create order form." Print out form,
write a check and send it to the address on top of the form.

If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to

Do
you have any knowledge of Yanow vs. Yanow Lubelski?

Yes, I do have a lot of information on this city. First, note that "Yanow"
is actually "Janow." Next, note the LDS films listings for "Janow":

Janow KA B 1863-1882 1,646,267 =A0
Janow KA BMD 1880/1888 1,646,268 =A0
Janow Lubelski LU BMD 1883-1887 1,808,843 =A0

Janow Podlaski LU BMD 1840-1843 807,767 DO

Janow Podlaski LU BMD 1866-1869 937,498 LA
Janow Podlaski LU BMD 1855/1877 1,496,625 =A0

These listings suggest that there are Jewish 3 Janows. (In fact, there are
many other Janows--but not Jewish Janows!)

Next, note the results for "Janow" at JewishGen's FamilyFinder:

http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/jgffweb.htm

You will find these:

Janow Lubelski Poland
Janow Podlaski Poland
Janow Sokolski Poland
Janow Poland

There are, then, 3 or 4 different "Janows." Just plain "Janow," however,
refers to the Janow that is near Czestochowa, Zarki, Mstow, Lelow, and
Przyrow, here:

http://www.kazez.com/~dan/0828.pol-map2.jpg

And it was this Janow which I was referring to in my earlier message.

A listing of surnames in the PSA records for this Janow may be found here:

These listings suggest that there are Jewish 3 Janows. (In fact, there are
many other Janows--but not Jewish Janows!)

Next, note the results for "Janow" at JewishGen's FamilyFinder:

http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/jgffweb.htm

You will find these:

Janow Lubelski Poland
Janow Podlaski Poland
Janow Sokolski Poland
Janow Poland

There are, then, 3 or 4 different "Janows." Just plain "Janow," however,
refers to the Janow that is near Czestochowa, Zarki, Mstow, Lelow, and
Przyrow, here:

And it was this Janow which I was referring to in my earlier message.

A listing of surnames in the PSA records for this Janow may be found here:
