I thought i'd heard something about this before, so I
went into the archives at:

http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~archpop

and found some interesting prior postings...you might try this too...
especially the message by Naomi Fatouros, who summarized her findings.
I searched by czar and band, but i would also try tsar and band.

happy hunting!

Re: "European Life Died in Auschwitz -- Thanks, and caution #general

Thank you all Jewishgenners. You're a wonderful crowd, helpful, generous,
resourceful, and knowledgeable. I've had scores of responses >from you
all, so many, I can't reply to all. But thank you! thank you!

As I suspected, the author's name is faked. The item was first published
by a non-existent Sebastian Vivar Rodrigez on the website blog "Gentiuno"
on November 11, 2004 in
_http://www.gentiuno.com/articulo.asp?articulo=1865_
(http://www.gentiuno.com/articulo.asp?articulo=1865)

Gentiuno is said to be published in the USA in Spanish by a group
opposed to Hugo Chavez of Venezuela. It is said to be rightwing
and pro-Israel.

The article itself is quite brief. It is more anti-Islamist
than pro-Jewish and seems to use Jews and the Holocaust only to
emphasize its racist viewpoints. It is not something I would wish to
see decorating a memorial to my ancestors and family.

If you do want to pass it on (I'd rather you didn't) please do not
mention jewishgen as your source.

Suwalki, Sejny and Tertack (Tarkak?) #general

Aryeh Wanderman
 

My maternal grandmother emigrated to America around 1900 with her 10
children, including my mother. I was alway told by my mother that
they came >from Suwalki and the town of Sejny. Recently I saw copies
of the US Naturalization papers of two of my mother's sisters, and
their place of birth and last place of residence is listed as Tertack
(Tartak?). I don't find Tertack or Tartack in a JewishGen Shtetle
search. Can anyone tell me where it is. Is it just a suburb or part
of Sejny?
The family name was GUDELSKI, which they changed to FEINGOLD when they
arrived in America.

Need Help (Ideas!!) with finding my GM's ships manifest #general

Marc Hodies <marc@...>
 

Hello Genners,

Thanks to all that helped identify Anyksi as Annixt - Anyksciai.
Unfortunately, that town does not fit geographically.

I have had good success with identifying lost relatives to date
but getting my gm's ships manifest has been tough. My Dad is 79 (Im 45)
and I would really like to find it for him (and myself). So after
working on this on and off for over 10 years, I cry out for some help.
A bit long-winded but I hope its fun to read.

My grandmother's maiden name: Freda Horowitz (Gurewitz likely).

According to my Dad:

Born in Smorgon about 1895 or so. Came over after the war (WWI)
as a single female. Her family was supposedly devastated >from the
Cossacks and she managed to hang on during the war as a baker,
perhaps in nearby small town or even perhaps in the city Vilna itself.
She did not look jewish and knew Russian and Polish well and supposedly
blended in or at least kept out of harms way.

I do not know when she came over except, according to my Dad,
after the war. It make sense to me though that she came over and
then got married soon after, right? Well my Dad was born in 1929
so does 1927 or 1926 make sense? How many single jewish and pretty
(she was attractive) would stay single in NYC or Newburgh before
getting arranged?

After she came over, she married a Meir CHODOSH (Hodies) who also
hailed >from Smorgon. Meir's first wife died in 1925 in NYC so he
could not have not have remarried before then. That puts the marriage
after 1925.

Ship name is Resolute on the Hamburg-America line.

Why is this so hard? Well her last name is Horowitz or Gurevitz
over there. Her brother came over and his name was Jurwitz on the
manifest. There are a lot of ways to misspell Gurewitz and Smorgon.
I would love to have access to the raw database so I can do a search
without limitations of minimum characters.

Find her and husband on the 1930 census you say? Been there and done
that and I cannot find them. Look them up on city directories?
been there and done that. Find the address on my Dads birth certificate
and find them on the census manually? been there and done that, nada.
Naturalization? Nope, my gm was remained an alien. Brides and groom
records? No luck.

Go to Morton Allan and find how many Resolutes made passages to Ellis
Island after 1924 then go through microfilms at the DC National
Archives trying my best to read the old faded script for each ship
arrival that qualifes? Only as a last resort. I really dont want to
do this option.

Consider Philly and Boston and Baltimore as a US port arrival? My Dad
strongly says it did not happen. That Ellis Island was the place.

Wait til 1940 census? Dont want to:-) Not even sure the year of
immigration is supplied.

So what does everyone think? Here are some nagging questions?

1. What are the odds that she came over after 1924? 1925? 1926? 1927?

2. How long would a single atractive jewish female remain unmarried in NYC?

2. If the census, naturalization records, groom and bride records,
cannot give me an idea, what others things can I do short of manually
resorting to looking at microfiche.

Thanks for all your ideas

Marc

JewishGen has a structure in place for researchers who don't
respond to other researchers queries; most often they have changed
their email address but neglected to change it on JGFF.

Please send your request to lostnfound@...
but please be patient...as it takes a while to follow thru.
If the researcher is no longer available, we note that on JGFF.

Synagogue>church, Brooklyn, Ocean & Newkirk Aves #general

Nancy Goldberg
 

A cousin was married in 1951 at a synagogue, which is now a church,
on the corner of Ocean & Newkirk Aves in Brooklyn. She doesn't remember
the name of the synagogue. Per Google Maps, the street address is
apparently 1010 Ocean Ave. The sign in front is blurry but appears
to say "Redemption Gospel Outreach." I entered the address on the
ACRIS database, but nothing matched it. It appeared on the NYC
Property database, building class M1 (church, synagogue), and the
owner's name is that of a private citizen. The account history
goes back to 1995, so it may have become a church at that time.

Does anyone know the name of the synagogue it used to be, any history
of the building, or how to find out more information?
