Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Ukrainian (Zvenigorodka) BMD records #ukraine

Dear Ukraine SIG Membership,

After the recent 2004 Jerusalem, rumours abounded about the sudden cessation
of our most current translation projects. The status has indeed changed, were indeed correct, but the circumstances are not as reported.

I've received many inquiries about the status of the Zvenigorodka BMD
records which were to be translated & uploaded (ie: names & years only).
Rather than have the issue misunderstood, I would like to update you on
circumstances.

The Ukraine Archives has refused permission for us to put any of the
microfilmed data online as they say it is their property. The only way for
you to get records >from them at the moment is to make an inquiry at the
appropriate archives. I understand that they have arranged with unaffiliated individuals who will check through the archives for your documents at a cost. (I can't vouch for any expenses which you will
have to incur.) All our projects have been temporarily halted, but this
needn't be the case.

We have over 1465 members in our SIG!! Surely many of you have access to
other sources of Ukrainian data that will be of help to our members. I've
mentioned before that the historic Vedemostie Russian newspapers carry a
great deal of information. If you are near a major library or source of
Eastern European information, I need your assistance to find any & all
useful data, & initiate projects on your own. Our Russian speakers are vital
to us in this effort. I've said it before ... we're only as successful as
our member participation is whole-hearted.

I need your help; you want to see facts on our site that will advance your
genealogy. It would be most productive if our members started special interest group by contacting members who are
researching the same town. Organize a research group to work on projects.
Get going & TAKE PART!!

Thanks, & let's look forward to moving on -

FINKELSTEIN in Washington DC #general

Paul Silverstone <paulh@...>
 

If anyone has any knowledge of Isaac (Itzie) FINKELSTEIN, who lived in
Washington, DC., I would be interested to learn of it. He was probably
born in the 1870s-1880s, in or near Shumsk, Volin Gubernia (Volhynia),
now in Ukraine. He had a brother Peter in Minneapolis.

Puerto Rico in US Census #general

Chuck Weinstein <cmw521@...>
 

It is even more unlikely that Puerto Rico would have been included in the
1890 census than was suggested; Puerto Rico was a colony of Spain until
1898, when the US took it as a prize following the Spanish American War.

Part of the study of genealogy must necessarily involve an understanding of
history, and more specifically, the history of the area you are researching.
There have been many posts on this and other forums within JewishGen that
indicate a lack of understanding of the fact that Poland ceased to exist as
a separate country in 1795 and did not exist again until 1919; that Russia
included large areas that today are other sovereign nations, or that the map
of Europe was completely redrawn in 1919 and again in 1945, moving borders
and creating new countries where none had existed before. The same process
was then repeated on a more limited scale in the 1990's.

If you are going to be a student of genealogy, you need to also be a student
of history. The lives of our ancestors were not lived in a vacuum; they
were profoundly affected by the political winds that swirled around them.

Steve, and others:

Puerto Rico was not included in the 1900 Census. The 1890 Census population
schedules were badly damaged by fire in the Dept. of Commerce Bldg. in DC in
January 1921. It is unlikely that Puerto Rico would have been included in the
enumeration, when one considers that PR was not included in the 1900 Census.

It would be remarkable indeed if Puerto Rico had been included in the 1890
US Census, since Puerto Rico belonged to Spain until 1898.

Puerto Rico has been included in the US Census since 1910.

As Puerto Rico was ceded to the United States only in 1898, and in 1890
still belonged to the Spanish Crown, it was not included in the US census of
that year.

Methods of making changes in your subscriptions will change #germany

GerSig@...
 

I have just been informed that our hosts at JewishGen will soon be changing the
system that manages all list subscriptions including GerSig.

One important change will take effect with the new system:

List MODERATORS will **** not **** be able to make changes in your
subscriptions for you after the new system goes into effect.

*** all *** changes in subscriptions - email address changes, changes from
"mail" to "digest" or to "no mail" (vacation) mode will have to be made by the
subscribers themselves using a new JewishGen webform.

If you are considering making any changes at this time and would like help
from your Moderator please let me know soon. Once the new system is in force
I will not be able to help you.
