Westan-naus, France current location and OBERSON genealogy #france

Judy L Pfaff <pfaff@...>
 

Hello, I am writing this for a friend. She is working
on her OBERSON family genealogy.

OBERSON, John Sylvester was born in Westan-naus, France, 10 February 1835.

OBERSON, Peter was born in Westan-naus, France, 22 October 1843.

OBERSON, Nancy was born near Paris, France, 14 June 1846.

John Sylvester, Peter and Nancy were siblings who all came to
America about 1851.

We have not been able to locate "Westan-naus, France."
Could anyone help us with a current location name.

Thank you for any assistance you can give.

I speak English, but could find help in reading French.

Need Lithuanian researcher recommendation #lithuania

Ted Gostin
 

I'm looking for recommendations on current researchers available in
Vilnius. I need a private researcher because the research I need done
goes beyond the records available in the archives, and because I
need the research done a little more quickly than the archives can
usually manage.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Please respond privately.

Translation Help Needed #poland

Scott D. Seligman <heyscott@...>
 

I've posted on ViewMate at
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/index.asp
a couple of pages in Russian >from the report of the Soviet State
Commission on Investigation of Nazi Crimes concerning the town of
Porozow (Porozovo). [VM4132 and VM4133]. One is handwritten and one is
printed, and neither is easy to read due to the poor quality of the
microfilm. Can anyone help me decipher even portions of these documents?

Many thanks...

VM4152 - 5: An Uniform and Individuals looking to Identify #general

Timothy Patton <fanoemmitt@...>
 

Hello;

I am hoping that someone can help me identify people,
location and an uniform on some pictures I have posted on
ViewMate.

I believe most of them are related to the SALOMON
or KISTNER families. Two of the pictures are >from some type of
gathering at a park.Two of them in more remote areas. One picture
has a person in a uniform in it. I have tried to compare it to
WWII uniforms but have not found a match.

There are descriptions with the pictures but most of it
is what we believe not what we know for sure.

If anyone can help identify anyone or anything >from any of
these 4 pictures it would be greatly appreciated.

their mother & uncle & aunt.

their grandparents and an unidentified child.

I believe these pictures are >from the summer of 1939.

Sephard Prayer Books in Ukraine #ukraine

Michelle Frager <lulu_brooks@...>
 

Dear List:

Had I thought to check at least one or two web sources before
posting, I would have found that there is an interesting opinion
re:"Sfard" prayer books - at least in the JewishGen Discussion Group
Archives, where I should have gone first.

It seems the Chassidim used a liturgy or order of prayer different
from other Jews and >from the Lubavitch, who some posters wrote, used
the Nusach Ari. There was some thought this was to create continuity
with pre-Inquisition-Diaspora practice.

There was also some immigration into the area, Odessa, for one
example, >from Turkey, Greece and even Italy, some wrote. But they
didn't posit the idea that it was necessarily the source of the
Nusach Sfard.

This is something I intend to look into through other sources. If
anything of interest turns up, I will post as it could be suggestive
for some researchers, like myself.

My appreciation to those of you who answered my original post.

VM 4149 - Female Name Bacfrah, 1871 London #general

Jennifer Broughton <jen_b@...>
 

Dear Genners

Please see the extract for my Joseph/s family in the
1871 census on View Mate - url:

http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=4149

The family arrived in London >from Poland (Zgierwz?) in about 1866-67
and the fourth youngest child seems to be named Bacfrah,
I wondered if anyone else had come across this name and might
know its origins. In previous censuses she became Rebecca
which was the same as her mother's name.

Thanks in advance for any help

Jennifer Broughton

From: "sandrabergman" <sandrabergman@dodo.com.au>

Whilst searching through the Ellis Island site online for Morris or Moses
Michaelovitch leaving England by sea for USA, the name Moses Mokoboitch
came
up. Could this name be for real? Could it be that an official wrote down
whatn he thought he heard or is it simply illegible handwriting? Would
be
appreciative of someone telling me if Mokoboitch is a surname.

Thank you,

Sandra Bergman
I can't tell you anything about the surname, but I've found relatives of
mine by using a questionable name to bring me to the original manifest.
There I check both the next of kin back in the place of origin as well as
the person to they will be staying with on arrival.

clarification of FOIA request address #general

Diane Goldman <dgoldman@...>
 

Thanks for sharing this, Hazel. But could you clarify?
(Or could someone else clarify, if they know the answer
to my question below?)

Does this refer to FOIA requests previously sent to INS?
Or is it for any genealogy-related FOIA request,
regardless of the U.S.government office involved?

I just had a phone call >from a very helpful lady who works out of the
office
in Lee's Summit, MO. While I had her on the phone I decided to clarify
a
few things. She told me that all genealogy requests are now being
handled
at this office. Sending requests there initially could save some time.
They will also accept requests by fax. Verification of death is
required
when the birth date is less than 100 years ago, but they'll accept a
picture
of the stone as proof. I'm providing a snail mail address and the fax
number, but they request that if you fax a request, that you don't
mail it as well.
