ZALUSKI from Stopnice & Chmielnik Poland #general

Ann Linder
 

Is anyone researching Moszek Jankiel ZALUSKI >from Chmielnik and
Stopnica? His parents were Abram Abel ZALUSKI and Etla Goldberg.
I have his wife's name should the name ZALUSKI be significant to you.
I do not know anything more about the ZALUSKI family but I am interested
to learn more so that I can connect the branches on my KAMIENIARZ
tree. (I have consulted JGFF.)

Information on Cousins in Bronx Orphanages: 1940 #general

Meron Lavie
 

With the availability of the index for the 1940 census, I finally managed to
locate 2 long lost 2nd cousins whose existence had only been "rumored". So
now I know where they were in 1940.

One was born in 1935, and was at the Shield of David Home for Orphan Girls
(Bronx).
Her sister was born in 1938, and was at the Home for Hebrew Infants (Bronx).

This is the first time I've had to deal with searching for relatives who
were in an orphanage or put up for adoption.

My questions:
1. What kinds of records are available?
2. Do I have any chance of getting their records either at the orphanages,
or their official adoption records?
3. The 5 year old, if not already adopted, would have entered first grade
the following year. Is there any way of knowing where she studied and get
any records >from that school?
4. Is there any registry of adopted children looking for their birth
families?
5. Are there any other tips that my fellow JewishGenners have to offer?
As stated, this is the first time I've ever searched for biological
records who were (presumably) adopted.

TIA fo any help

Bessarabia Jewish Business Directory #general

Harvey Kabaker
 

The 1924 Bessarabia Jewish Business directory project is complete.

Bessarabia SIG has completed work on extracting names and other data for
Jewish businesspeople active in the early 1920s in the eastern counties
of Romania that formerly comprised the Bessarabia territory of pre-World
War I Imperial Russia.

Files in HTML and .xls format are available on the Bessarabian Databases
page at http://www.jewishgen.org/Bessarabia/Databases.html.

They report on grocers, shopkeepers, teachers, local officials, stone
carvers, butchers, bakers, innkeepers, lawyers, peddlers, rabbis, and
many others who worked in Romania's nine eastern counties and Chisinau
(the former Kishinev), and who apparently were Jewish. The 13,056
records represent 705 cities, towns, villages and hamlets.

The information was extracted >from the "Socec Annuary of the
Great-Roumania," dated 1924-1925, issued by the prominent Romanian
publishing house Socec & Co. The Library of Congress calls the
two-volume set a historic address book that "stands as the most complete
survey of Greater Romania during the interwar period."

A detailed description of the project and notes on the source are
available by clicking the title, "Bessarabia Business Directory,
1924-25" at the top of the page referenced above.

Volunteers who extracted the data were
