Hi Genners:

I have been trying desperately to locate and contact the New York City
and, or the Brooklyn, N.Y. Voter Registration office, to try and secure a
copy of my Dad's past Presidential voting visits
from the time he resided in the United States >from , 1912 thru 1954 that
might help, or lead me in securing his long lost 1904 ships manifest

Can any of you good people assist or help me as to how to find where those
records are now kept, and how and where to contact that office.

Sincerely
Martin Spolansky

Re: Antwerp Alien Registration records #general

Evelyne Haendel noted in several of the discussion groups that alien
registration record >from Belgium are soon to be transferred >from the "Office
des Etrangers Archives Department" in Brussels to the national archives in
Belgium. There have been a dozen or so postings to the discussion groups in
the past year regarding these records.

I became interested in the records >from these postings, but my own
investigations suggest that these alien registration records only cover
people who stayed in Belgium for an extended period of time, and do not
include normal emmigrants to other countries who were only in Belgium for a
day or so as they left Europe >from a Belgian port. I therefore think the
statement in Evelyne's posting that "All aliens had and still have to get
registered and provide information concerning their birth place, date,
parents names, personal data, etc." may be in error.

Several postings have noted that indexes to the Antwerp alien registration
files are online, and I found that the Antwerp files and indexes have also
been microfilmed by the FHL >from 1840 to 1930. The indexes can be found
online at
http://stadsarchief.antwerpen.be/Unrestricted/Folder.aspx?r_object_id=0b041acf8004f600.
The "TinyURL" quoted in previous messages didn't seem to be working when I
tried it today. The micfofilms can be found in the FHL catalog under
Antwerpen and under the subject listing "Emigration and Immigration."

I started my searches by looking for two German immigrants >from the same
family who left >from the port of Antwerp, one in 1883 and one in 1890.
Neither of these immigrants to the U.S. was found in the Antwerp alien
registration indexes. This immediately raised questions in my mind as to
who was covered in these files. I then searched the Antwerp alien
registration indexes for 26 of my own family members >from Russia who came to
the U.S. >from the port of Antwerp in 1921 and 1922; not one of these
individuals was listed. This supported my growing suspicion that most
European emigrants who left Europe through the port of Antwerp were not
covered in these files.

I then did a couple of random searches. First, I selected a ship at random
that left Antwerp and came to the U.S. I took 10 names >from that ship,
using people of different classes of passage and different nationalities,
and searched for them in the Antwerp lists. Not one of them was listed. I
then reversed the search, selecting 10 names at random >from the Antwerp
indexes, and searching to see if any of them emigrated to the U.S. Again,
not one of them was listed in U.S. immigration lists.

from these admittedly brief searches, it appears to me that the Antwerp
alien registration files only cover people who were actually immigrants to
Belgium -- that is, aliens who resided in Belgium for some time. This is
consistent with the few people who noted in the discussion groups that they
found relatives in the files; all reported relatives who had lived in
Belgium for some time. Furthermore, I found a book on GoogleBooks (Alien
Policy in Belgium, 1840-1940: The Creation of Guest Workers, Refugees ... By
Frank Caestecker) that seems to support this conclusion, although I didn't
read the whole book. Finally, I noted that the microfilmed indexes to these
files are on only 6 rolls of microfilm. If all European emigrants who left
through the port of Antwerp >from 1840 to 1930 were included, there would
likely be many more rolls of microfilm to cover the indexes alone.

All of these factors suggest that these alien registration files in Belgium
cover only immigrants to Belgium; that is, people who intended to stay in
Belgium for some time. Normal emigratns who were just leaving Europe
through the ports of Belgium do not seem to be included. So it seems that
while the alien registration files >from Antwerp may be of great help to
people who had relatives living there for some time, they won't be of much
help to people who had relatives who emigrated >from the port of Antwerp.
These European emigrants are not likely to be included in the alien
registration files.

We recently found ship listing in 1913 for my wife's grandmother.

My wife was always told that her grandmother was in fact >from Russia.

Can anyone help me to identify this town? I tried searching in

If it is also in the present day Russia,
ShtetlSeeker shows you three that seem phonetically close:

Vinnyy, Kovyl'nyy 51 51' 50 21' Russia 941.3 km ESE of Moskva

Viny, Winy 58 22' 32 13' Russia 435.3 km NW of Moskva

and I don't understand what that means!
It just meanss ShtetlSeeker has phonetically fout those to have some

Without the country, my primary guess would be:
"Wien",

Dear Genners.
Before JewshGen started, how people were looking for each other? and they
were searching also, especially after the WW2.
Maybe there are archives of such a kind, lists, some kind of documents?,
announcements in the newspapers? It can help in our search now?

The Hebrew names Yeshaya/Yeshayahu were relatively rare names throughout
Europe, including Galicia. Mr. Cooper can learn more about the associated
variant names which were linked statistically to these two Hebrew names by
visiting the JewishGen Given Names Data Bases web site at:

< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/GivenNames >

and searching for either of the above two names, using Global Text Search.

He will find that one of the secular (including Yiddish) nicknames which
were widely used by persons having one or both of the two Hebrew names was
SHAYA, spelled in various fashions. I suspect that the name "Scharge" is
a mistake (I have never seen any name similar to this associated with our

Searching for Horst (Henry) SCHLESSINGER, last known in NYC, mother Irma PINKUS #general

Melodysdeals
 

I am looking for Henry SCHLESSINGER, the son of Irma PINKUS and Kurt
Schlessinger. If I can locate him I will find out what happened to my
aunt, information about my father, and the city where my grandfather
came from. Irma and Horst (Henry) arrived October 12, 1938 on the
Pennland >from Antwerp, Belgium. Horst (Henry) estimared birth was 1931
on those records. On those records, there is a page called "Held for
Special Investigation." They are listed as NVI (no visible income),
she lists her husband as K. Schlesinger in Breslau, and that she is
going to her uncle in Neward, NJ. This type written. Then there are a
series of notations written in pencil. The upshot of itis that Kurt
comes to get her and their son and is allowed to take them on Oct 14
after posting a bond that is good for 60 days. That bond is extended a
few times. I believe that Kurt Schlesinger Henry (Horst) father was
born in 22 Feb. 1982 and died in Hendersonville North Carolina at age
of 75. His birthdate is listed as 20 April 1906. I believe this is
the right Kurt because Kurt was an investor in real estate in NYC with
Jesse H. BARKIN. There was an auto accident where one of Jesse's
relatives is killed and Kurt was in the car. It was in the winter in
Henderson, NC; so there is the connection. I have called the Henry
Schlessinger's listed in the phone book. I have emailed all the
Schlesinger's on jewishgen and every other site I can think of. His
father, Kurt, and Jesse Barkin both attended the same synogue. Kurt
and Irma divorced in approximately 1945, when my father and his sister,
Edith were on the way to NYC. This is confirmed with Edith's son,
still living.
My father died 30 years ago and lived illegally under an aka during his
time in the US. Two years before he died, he told our family his real
name. I have found cousins on my grandmother's side, Rosa Pinkus and
my half-sister and brother through JewishGen. I have 2 families - my
father's sister's I am still looking for and Irma is one. The other
sister had no children. Henry may have piece that will help locate the
rest of Louis Pinkus' side. My first cousin has been working on the
family genealogy for 20 years. I now am to the point where I believe
that it is just going to someone who knows him, which will help. His
father owned alot of New York City property, so I can not image him
leaving the area. >from the information I know, I do not think that he

Does it give any crucial genealogical
