FHL Records from Bukowina--Are the Jewish records part of church records? #romania

avatom@...
 

Has anyone searched the Family History Library records >from the Chernivtsi State
Archives that cover the areas of the Bukowina that include Storozynetz and Krasna
Ilski? These metrical books are >from the orthodox church in Krasna Ilski and the
roman catholic church in Storozynetz. I am wondering if Jewish records were part
of the church documentation in these towns or if the rabbi in Storozynetz kept
those records? Krasna Ilski was in the Storozynetz area but did not have a
synagogue. The library does not indicate that there are Jewish records
specifically but does say that the films include records >from surrounding
villages. Any help would be welcome.

Shalom,

I was very excited, like many of you, to learn that former JewishGen Vice
President, Joyce Field, last week won the Lifetime Achievement award >from
the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies Conference in
Philadelphia. For me, this was certainly a matter of "it's about time" since
she was so deserving of this notable award. She dedicated so many years, so
much time, initiative and thought into the JewishGen site and her hallmarks
are there at every corner - in the Yizkor Book project in the JOWBR and much
more.

I send out my own "kol hakavod" and "mazal tov" to Joyce and thank her on
behalf of all those who continue to enjoy the fruits of her labor.

Yours,

Minnie Golde DRUCKER Mount Zion Cemetery, NY #general

Sylvia Kaye <SKaye@...>
 

Dear All,

Is anyone planning to visit Mount Zion Cemetery in Maspeth, NY? If so,
I'd be very grateful if they could take a digital photo of the following
grave stone, which I believe is that of my husband's great grandmother.


DRUCKER, Minnie Golde
Path: 44R
Gate: 12
Grave Number:
Section:
Block:
Lot:
Society: GLINIANY
Date of Death: 6/1/1923

Although I've phoned Mount Zion, and also the present holder of the
Gliniany Society records, no-one has been able to give me the missing
location information, so I hope that this is enough to enable the grave
to be located.

I have been picking away at this particular blank wall for several
years, and am hoping for even one more shred of information >from this
gravestone - either to confirm something, or even lead me a little
further in my search for her descendants or relatives.

If anyone feels they could do this for me, please let me know.

what town is this? #general

Bob Kosovsky
 

An immigrant to the US, my grandmother's father (Nathan GINDEN) refused to say
what town he came from. I can't find naturalization petitions or papers for
him (I'm not sure he was ever naturalized).

Just the other day I thought of looking for information >from my grandmother's
brothers. I found the World War I draft registration form for one of them,
Albert GINDEN, who had been born in the Russia.

I've posted it on Viewmate:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=13316

On line 5 of the left-hand page, he has written the name of the his town in
Russia. Can anyone decipher it? I've included the entire registration
form so that you can draw inferences >from similar-looking letters.

Please put responses on the viewmate form below the image.
Thanks very much!

NARA (USA) Proposes Addendum to Ancestry.com Digitization Agreement #general

Jan Meisels Allen <janmallen@...>
 

The (USA) National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) proposed an
addendum to their existing digitization contract with Ancestry.com. The
original contract required all digitization at NARA's facility. The
proposed change would permit Ancestry.com to digitize at their off-site
facility in Silver Spring, Maryland. A limited pilot to determine whether
the archival materials can be safely and securely transported off site
started in December 2008. It has been successful and would significantly
increase the digitization capacity. There would be no cost to NARA for the
off-site operation.

Any one interested in commenting on the proposed change should write to
Vision@nara.gov or by fax to 301-837-0319. Comments need to be received by
August 31, 2009.

For more information on the proposed change go to:

1869 census - search results #hungary

tomerbr@...
 

Dear friends,
I would like to share an interesting observation regarding the
search results of the 1869 census, on the AHD.

In the past, if one would search for a surname and the search results
included that surname as a woman's maiden name, than the search results included
all the people in her household - the wife (whose maiden name was the search
parameter),and the husband and children, whose surname is different than the
maiden name.

Currently, the same search would result in the details of the wife, only.

Example: In 2007 I saved the search results for the surname "DUSINZKY".
It included a household in the town of Novomeszto, with 5 people whose
surname is ADLER. One of them was the wife, whose maiden name was DUSINZKY.
Now, the same search give only the details of the wife.


Is there a way to bypass this problem?

So be aware of it and when you get such a maiden name result, search also
according to the current surname.

I guess that this work-around is partial, since the search result, whether
surname or maiden name, can be of a distant relative, servant etc., whose
surname is different than that of the other household members, so finding the
family they lived with would not be easy...

Best regards,
Tomer Brunner, Israel
