Israel ABRAMOWITZ born Massachusetts about 1909 #general

Dear Genners,
Can anyone help me find descendants/ relatives of Israel Abramowitz born
about 1909 in Worcester Mass.
He may have died in Palm Beach Florida.

Slightly older sisters would be Debra/ something with a D and Toby.

Looking for Toby without knowing her married name I found
Toby BERG b 1904 and died Middlesex Mass 1973.
Toby Bialeck Miami death 1972
Toby Greenberg Broward Florida, possibly married to William
Toby Grossbard US citizen who died in Israel 1993
Toby Schiff Fort Lauderdale.
Does anyone recognise these names?
Thanks in anticipation,

Ros Romem

Lorberbaum.

I will be grateful if anyone can point me in the direction of living
descendants or information about deceased members of the family.

Thank you very much,

Kanczuga records questions #galicia

Judy Keiner <J.C.Keiner@...>
 

I'm wondering if other people who have subscribed to get the spreadsheets of
the Kanczuga 1851-1903 records have now obtained invidual copies of any of
their family records? I am wondering how much extra information the original
records show beyond what is in the spreadsheets. For example:

Do death records list the name of the informant? Place of birth? Cause of
death? Other useful information?

Do birth and marriage records list additional useful information?

Are there particular identified LDS or other readily available records which
cover the people of Kanczuga pre 1851? For example, I've discovered a
1774-born Kanczuga ancestor through his death record of 1857, and would like
to see how much more I could find out about him and the many other ancestors
who appear in the post 1851 records as born before then.

There is a puzzle which is that many couples registered marriages in 1902
which had been in existence for many years. For example, my great
grandfather and mother's marriage appears in 1859 and then they registered
it again in 1902. Any reason known for why that happened?

Does anyone know the actual date of the final massacre of the Jews of
Kanczuga in July 1942?

What experiences have people had getting the post 1904 records?

to provide a list of titles that anyone interested in

So, I appeal to the group to please write back to me,

that you think are essential to the beginner or any

Hungarian magnate landowners #general

Shlomo Katz <SKATZ@...>
 

The question did not specify Jewish versus non-Jewish. My great-great-
grandfather Yisroel KATZ was a landowner in the Marmarosh province of
Hungary. His holdings seem to have passed to only one of his (at least)
three sons, Shmuel Zanvil Katz (died 1890), and >from there to his
son-in-law, Zysha ELEFANT (died 1942). Zysha was a fabulously wealthy
man whose properties included many forests. He employed about 150 people,
and issued his own currency. (My great-grandfather, Shmuel Zanvil's
brother, ended up as a porter. There must be a story there. Oh well!
On the bright side, one of Zysha's descendants underwrote the publication
of the family tree that I wrote.)

Re: INS Manifest number #general

Joel Weintraub <jweintraub@...>
 

There is an error in a Friday post about the interpretation of the
Certificate of Arrival number that is sometimes seen on Ellis Island
Manifests. The first digit of the particular number which started the
thread was "1-." The post on Friday indicated that meant the New York City
area (courts requesting the document). New York is actually "2-" while "1-"
can be Boston or New Haven, Ct.

It's interesting that a table of such numbers was published in AVOTAYNU in
Spring 1996 (page 11) and shows:
1- Boston; 2-New York; 3-Philadelphia; 4-Washington DC; 5-Buffalo;
6-Pittsburgh; 7-Cleveland; 8-Detroit; 9-Cincinnati; 10-Birmingham;
11-Chicago; 12-St Louis MO; 13-New Orleans; 14- St Paul; 15-Omaha; 16-Kansas
City MO; 17-Fort Worth; 18-Denver; 19-Salt Lake City; 20-Seattle;
21-Portland; 22-San Francisco; 23-Los Angeles. This Table shows "US
Naturalization District Numbers as of 1920." Now compare these numbers
with:
http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/Manifests/occ/do33-43.html and you will
see that this table, for 1933 to 1943, expanded the coverage for specific
manifest number districts and added more numbers. In any case, "1-" is not
New York.

Dear Stan, Israel, and JGS members,

As far as I know there is no current online Mexican phone book. I have the
same need and have tried many times over the past year. There were a few
sites that appeared to have one but when you submitted a search you get "Page
Not Found" or equivalents. If anyone has a specific URL that had worked for
them recently please let us all know. Mexico has a relative good sized
Jewish community and I have some relatives. Please try Zawoznik in Mexico
City if you need an example.
I found one that let me get as far as entering a name and surname (there
*must* be at least one "Jose Diaz" in the country), and submitting the search.
The response was that no such listing was found. The other directories I
found act about as you describe, so you appear to be correct. In your place,
my Plan B would be to find the nearest Mexican consulate and ask to use
their directory. Consulates always have home telephone directories; I have
used them in Tel-Aviv, before online directories became available.

I would also like to find a 1920 or so Mexico City census online so if
anyone knows of one of those please let me know. I know LDS is suppossed to
have one but without a known address I assume that would be difficult to
use.
I would be surprised if the Library of Congress doesn't have such a thing.
That's where I have been finding things like town maps of Iasi (you can't
find one in Iasi, and people look at you funny for thinking it would be). If
you can't find the census elsewhere, you might think about a visit to Washington
for a few days, and pop into the LOC, which is filled with helpful people.
You might also write to the Mexican Embassy and ask them if they can help. I
doubt whether inter-library loans extend that far south, but it costs
nothing to ask you local library if they can help.
