US Amry online database - new? #belarus

Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

Dear group,
Somone in another group I subscribe to found a wonderful new database at
NARA. It's part of the ADD - Access to Archival Databases System. This
particular database is the "Electronic Army Serial Number Merged File, ca.
1938 - 1946". It has records for close to 9 million enlistees in the U.S.
Army for WWII. You can search for individual names or by state and county,
or a combination. Wildcards are permitted, too.

To search by state and county, start at
http://www.archives.gov/aad/index.html. Click on SEARCH, then select ALL
SERIES, the Army file is the sixth entry down.

>from there it's pretty self-explanatory. Be sure to select the state and
county codes >from the code lists - don't type the place names in.

There are other databases in the ADD - check it out!

Isachar Widows and Orphans Benevolent Society #belarus

Jerome Seligsohn <jselig1315@...>
 

I am now preparing the papers of the Isachar Society
for archival presentation at YIVO. These papers were
turned over to YIVO by the New York State Department
of Insurance after the Society underwent legal
dissolution. As most recently defunct benevolent
societies appear to have only documents >from the last
thirty years [if that much] it is difficult to get a
take on their earlier history. This organization,
formed in 1862, apparently does not live up to its
name. I ask former members or their descendants for a
decription of the earlier history of this society. The
dues lists and cemetery maps with plot name
designations as well as a rich number of death
certificates will be of interest to future family
history researchers.

Given name Mishka #belarus

My mother, Millicent, is named for her great grandmother Miszka. To this day my
Dad still calls her "Mish", short for her Yiddish/Hebrew name, Miszka.
Yes, the "sz" is pronounced "sh".

Translation help needed (Cyrillic) #belarus

Stan Golembe <ocstan@...>
 

I have posted on viewmate, #4117
(http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=4117),
the census entry for my ancestor whom I have previously written about. I am trying
to determine if her name is Chana or Khama. Please, if you can read this,
give me your opinion. Especially look at the next to last letter-- is it m or n?
Thanks and many thanks to those who have already emailed me with
suggestions.
