Jeff Miller
 

Dear all,

I have posted a photo of a New York couple believed to be of one or more ancestors
for which I would appreciate any assistance you can provide towards identification
of the individuals shown. It is on ViewMate at the following address:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=20899

The photo was taken by as professional photographer, perhaps in celebration of a
family event.

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Re: general store in Satoraljauhely #hungary

welcome to (hungarian) jewish genealogy!

i can't help you much with satoraljaujhely, although i'm sure others
here can, but i can point out that KLEIN is one of the most common
hungarian jewish names, and, as my mother used to point out, there
was (at least) one KLEIN family in every town and village in hungary,
and generally speaking not related to one another.

just for fun, look up KLEIN and a few other "typical jewish names" in
the 1891 industry and trade directory on bogardi.com:
<http://www.bogardi.com/gen/>, which shows both frequency of
occurrence, and their geographic distribution. it's an interesting
tool.

greatgrandfather was Yehuda Lieb (Louis or Lajos) KLEIN, and my grandmother,
Tovah (Etel) KLEIN worked there as a child before she came to the US in
1921. I was also told by my grandmother that the mountains started at the
end of their street, although I have no address. Thank you in advance for
any suggestions.

LILLIAN LIPSCHITZ- Social Security application arrives, not mine, yours? #general

babycat3@...
 

I received the application copy for Lillian LIPSCHITZ, born in NYC in 1929. The
SSDI >from which I ordered the app read Lillian KAFLOWITZ, that is an error it
seems. It seems the surname on the SSDI is wrong. If Lillian is connected to your
family, kindly contact me and I will be glad to send the app to you.

Her father is listed as Jack LIPSCHITZ, her mother is listed as Esther SOBEL.

Please contact me privately.

I seem to recall that there is a database of Gets in the USA somewhere. Can anyone
point me in the direction of finding one in New York circa 1895?

Re: Galician Military Records #galicia

Cyndi Norwitz
 

I want to thank you for this link. It does seem that I have found family members
here.

But I am wondering if you or anyone else has been able to view documents. Some
docs are not viewable but the rest are supposed to be available if you have their
plug in. I downloaded and installed the Mac version of the plug in (which you have
to do >from their page, not by clicking "get plug in" >from the place where the
picture is supposed to be). I confirmed that the plug in was installed correctly
and enabled in Firefox (they say it doesn't work in Safari but they swear it works
in Firefox). I still get the same big blank black square where the document is
supposed to be, with the "get the plug in" icon.

I thought maybe it was a Mac thing but someone else trying to see the same docs
reported to me that he has a PC and couldn't manage to view the documents either.

Thanks,
Cyndi Norwitz

Identifying Locations #ukraine

cmw521@...
 

In the past few days, there have been a few requests to identify places that
have been found on various records, including passenger manifests and
various other documents. Since the names suggested in these documents do
not correspond with any known places, it would be much more helpful to post
the document on ViewMate and let more eyes have a look at it. What might
seem clear to you (or what might have come >from a transcription, in which
case who knows what it might be), might actually be interpreted by someone
else with knowledge of the location, differently. I am familiar with many
of the towns and localities in Ukraine, and I have never heard of many of
these places. I also consult gazetteers, like "Where Once We Walked", and
they show nothing remotely like these places. Please, unless a document is
typewritten, never assume your interpretation of a name or a place name, is
the only correct possibility. If you are looking at a transcription of a
document in Ancestry or other web sites, understand these documents were
transcribed by volunteers who were instructed to make their best guess as to
what a word was and move on. Few of them were familiar with place names or
Jewish names. Although handwriting was much more florid in the 19th century
and early 20th century, it is not always easy to decipher. That is why we
have ViewMate on JewishGen.

Karoulisnish #ukraine

b848ear@...
 

On a ww2 registration card, a man has clearly written
Karoulisnish, Russia, as his place of birth in the 1880s.

I think this is in the Ukraine but can anyone confirm
where, exactly? I have tried searching for it in JGen town
names, but nothing comes up.

Can anyone confirm if it is anywhere near Woloschysk/Volochisk,
in Volhynia? If so, where, and if not where?

Many thanks
