JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Finding address in the census? #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I am stuck trying to do in effect a reverse search trying to see who lives
at specific addresses in the US Federal Census. I tried the One Step tool
and it gets me in the neighborhood but not in the right blocks.

I am stuck not able to find these addresses. Anyone have any other ideas
how to locate addresses in the census?

I did the mapping and I have locations mapped, etc. Some of the addresses
seem sort of problematic because of changes in the map of Brooklyn, New
York but I know the address and the corner I need to see. I can get to the
street but not the right numbers.

The addresses I am looking for in 1920 and 1930 are:

1091 Hopkinson Avenue, Brooklyn
280 Sutter Street, Brooklyn (this might just be the business)
171 Thatford, Brooklyn
200 or 220 Thatford, Brooklyn

Any ideas how to find those addresses in the Census?

Thanks

Allan Jordan

Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Lvov house numbers (again) #galicia

To Henryk question.

In addition to the clear evidence of the 1871 Lvov Address
Directory... I have under hand many dozens of various house
numbers of my family. Obviously if the numbers would refer to
public buildings there would be no diverse mixture of numbers.

Dear Bessarabers,

I would like to update you on a very interesting project we have started
only couple of months ago and moving along very well:

Bessarabia Business Directory - translation/transcription of the records.

A group of our members have already completed many records for some
of the major towns in Bessarabia:
- all of Khotin uezd, including Khotin, Sokuryany, Lipkany, Edinetz,
Briceni, Novoselitsa and many small towns and villages;
- the large town of Bendery;
- Kalarash, Olishkany, Dombroveny, Kaushany.

Many other towns and villages are now in progress;

I would like to very much thank our volunteers Paola Khalili,
Ala Gamulka, and Harvey Kabaker for their great work.

I also want to introduce you to Harvey Kabaker -- a new Project
Manager/Coordinator for the Bessarabia Business Directory project.
Harvey has been working on the project for some time and completed one
of the large districts in Bessarabia -- Khotin.

Very soon the records will start to appear as a JewishGen database
and the JewishGen Bessarabia SIG website.

We still have many pages to transliterate for towns like Kishinev,
Beltsy, Akkerman, and others. Please contact Harvey Kabaker if
you want to participate at < harvey.kabaker@... >.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen RE: JGS meetings and sharing presentations #general

Merle Kastner <merlek@...>
 

Dear all,

Gladys Paulin has made a valid point and several suggestions that
should be helpful to genealogists in smaller communities - please
see below:

Merle Kastner
merlek@...

<snip>
Having said that, the best lectures are usually those that get revised and
updated regularly until they are accepted for presentation at State,
National, and International conferences, many of which are there taped and
available for purchase. Many of these conferences have their full program
posted online for several months in advance, and often for years afterward.
Go to http://www.iajgs.org/ to see the lectures for the past two years
(links are on the current conference page for Paris). That is for the major
Jewish conferences. Also check out available tapes for the National
Genealogical Society (or equivalent in your country) and the Federation of
Genealogical Societies. Certainly they have lectures on vital records and
research for many countries and ethnic groups--even for Jewish research
sometimes.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive #108 #general

Georges Graner <georges.graner@...>
 

Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive # 108 has been distributed.

Here is the summary:
Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive, issue 108, Winter 2011
Guy Worms explains how the hyphenated surname STRAUSS-KAHN was formed.
The story takes place in Alsace. In 1808 Feistel Joseph becomes Joseph
STRAUSS at Haguenau (Bas-Rhin). His ancestry is given up to the 17th
century. His great-grandson Gaston Strauss is born in 1875. Another
Alsatian family is the KAHN family (a local spelling of Cohen) which is
also tracked up to the 17th century. Max Marius Kahn is born in 1904.
Gaston Strauss and Marius Kahn are remote cousins. Gaston Strauss' wife
is a catholic girl named Yvonne Stengel and they have a son Gilbert
Strauss in 1918. Gaston Strauss has been seriously wounded during WW1
so that he calls his cousin Marius to help him in his business. After
Gaston's death in 1934, his widow marries Marius in 1937. The latter
decides to adopt his step-son Gilbert in 1939. After this adoption,
Gilbert is officially called Gilbert Strauss-Kahn. Therefore this
surname comes >from the two husbands of Yvonne Stengel.

In the last issue of this journal Pascal Faustini looked for the
origins of the Wolf and Berr ORCHEL families >from Nancy. In the present
one, Pierre-André Meyer details some documents which allow to establish
the links between these families. He shows marriage contracts, after
death inventories, donations and family boards.

Avraham Malthête has studied the register of circoncisions of the mohel
Jacob HALPHEN (1828-1865) >from Bourbonne-les-Bains (Haute-Marne). This
register was given in 2009 to the Alliance Israélite Universelle library
by Mr Denis Marciano. This mohelbuch contains 605 acts >from many
different places all over in France. Members of the CGJ are concerned by
several of these acts.

Bernard Lyon-Caen was interested in the Alsatian surname Oury and
found that it was changed into Ury or Uhri among the offsprings of a
same ancestor in the 19th century.

Our Chairman, Bruno Bloch, provide us his children's ancestry. Only 7
generations are included in the present issue. The complete work,
totalizing 41 generations (up to an ancestor born ca. 635), can be
consulted on our website www.genealoj.org in the Members' corner.

This issue also reminds you to register for the 32nd IAJGS International
Conference on Jewish Genealogy, Paris July 15-18, 2012. Look at
