Re: Success on Census - Reversing Names #general

This is very true. You should always try switching. I have seen several
census pages where they list the head of household as Surname, Given name
and the rest of the family as Given name, Surname. This is especially
important to use if you are looking through indexes, as the data entry
people should type the entry in exactly as it is written without making
their own interpretations.

I hope the following will help all genners. While searching on the
census through ancestry.com, we found Hyman JACOBS. However, the catch
is that we put him in as Jacob HYMAN, and up he came with all of the
children we know to

be the right ones.

Good luck to all of us!

I know that when my father came here in 1927 he had to answer verbal
questions asked by a person at the American Embassy in Lviv. One of
the
questions was "how many legs does an American chicken have"?
Errol Schneegurt LI NY ESLVIV@...
AFAIK there was no American embassy in Lwow at that time - probably a
consulate, since Lwow was part of Poland and the embassy was in Warsaw.

TETEIEVSKY-TESKEY of Canada #general

Ida & Joseph Schwarcz <idayosef@...>
 

I have reason to believe that some of my mother's TETIEVSKY relatives
settled in Western Canada and changed their name to TESKEY. A request to
Irma Penn, Archivist of the Jewish Heritage Center of Western Canada,
Winnipeg, resulted in a six page report listing many people by that name.
They all seem to have lived in the Saskatoon, Saskatchewan area. However,
most of the people on the list are dead.
Since I cannot travel to the International Conference which will be in
Canada this year, I wonder if someone would be able to track down a living
Teskey for me. Of course this only works if the Teskey was indeed once upon
a time Tetievsky!
Thanks in advance

Passports #general

Errol Schneegurt
 

I would like to know what a person would need to supply to the controlling
authorities in the Eastern European countries and Russia in order to get
an approved passport before 1920. I am assuming that at minimum some
record of birth would have been needed.

Ship Records #general

Errol Schneegurt
 

I have a question that the answer seems obvious.
On the ship manifests there are columns that relates to the persons
ability to read and write. The notations on the ones that I am looking at
are overwhelming yes to both questions. I would have to assume that they
are referring to the persons native language and maybe Yiddish in the case
of a Jewish person.

If anyone can make a suggestion to find out more about them I will be most

The West End does not mean Middlesex Street which is in the East End.
There was a thriving Jewish community in the Soho area of London, postcode
W1.
There is a book about it, by Gerry Black, Living Up West, which may mention
the family.

Ther shul does not appear to exist now.

Help identifying shtetl near Warsaw #general

Genners:

I am researching my friend's family who emigrated >from Warsaw between 1904

It is possible that another branch of this family was >from "Klasztorek"
(Kalish Turek), 126 miles northwest of Warsaw.

Does anyone out there have any good ideas about what shtetl this might have
been? We are also open to the idea that the ancestral town might have been
in another part of Poland.

Thank you!
