So many of our immigrant ancestors lived in New York City -- they
started on the Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx and Brooklyn;
their children moved to Queens, Westchester, Long Island and New Jersey.

Sure we have the census >from Ancestry and vital records from
ItalianGen but this class will focus on the more esoteric documents
our ancestors generated -- naturalization, probate, landsmanshaften,
voters registration, newspapers, court cases -- and we will note which
documents will only be found on-site at various archives.We include
suggestions on where to research, where to wander and how to get
there. Students will have the opportunity to select a branch to
research and receive suggestions >from the instructor.

This 4 week Intermediate level genealogy course has 7 text lessons you
can download; there are no specific times for the course; students
interact with the instructor though a 24/7 FORUM, in a query and
answer format. To see a short video on how our courses work, go to
www.jewishgen.org/education and view the video at the very bottom of
the page. Note: these are intermediate genealogy topics and if you
wish to pursue another U.S. city, the instructor will be happy to work
with you.

Requirements: Students must feel comfortable browsing the web and
downloading files, have 5-10 hours available each week and should
select a family where census and vital records are already documented.
Tuition is $100 (there are no waivers for this course); registration
is open; go to www.JewishGen.org/education and click on the enrollment
link. For questions, please email JewishGen-Education@lyris.JewishGen.org

Dear Genners,

As Publicity Specialist for Yizkor-Books-in-Print, part of the Yizkor
Books Project of JewishGen, I am pleased to announce that we now have
several new volumes available for you. All are in hard cover and have
a similar format and size (approximately 7" x 10"). All of our books
are available through Amazon and other distributors at discounted prices.

Our latest memorial titles include works about the following towns:
Rozniatow, Ukraine, Ostro Mazowiecka, Poland, Yampol, Ukraine, Polhajce,
Ukraine, Novogrudok, Belarus and a memoir, The Maple Tree Behind the
Barbed Wire - A Story of Survival >from the Czestochowa Ghetto.

These Yizkor books, almost all originally written in Yiddish and Hebrew
by former residents, have been beautifully translated by volunteers. We
are very grateful to all of them for their work, initiated, supervised,
and often prepared by Joel Alpert our amazing Project Coordinator.

Watch for word on the arrival of three other titles: Jaslo, Poland,
Telekhan, Belarus and Ciechanow, Poland all coming shortly.

For further information on all the books published through our project
please go to our web site:

where descriptions and cover photos are available.

I am trying to find information about a man born in Warsaw in 1882 who
later lived in Brussels Belgium. I know his wife's name - he married in 1901
in Warsaw.

Can someone give me some direction that might lead to his family?

Thank you.

Brick wall with Jedrzejow Poland ancestors - looking for suggestions #general

rcbernstein
 

The family origin mystery so far:

Shmaya Moshe Borenshtain (b+/-1845) and Zeicul had Haim (b+/-1867 d1949
London) in Poland.

Haim and Malka (Brandys) had Hindele (b+/-1887), Sarele (b+/-1888) and
Schliama (1890) in Poland and then emigrated to London (1894) with all
their children.

In London they had my grandfather Zalman (1896) and then another 4
children.

Haim, Malka and Borenshtain children were naturalised (1911) to become
Hyman Edward Caroll Etherton and Milly although they spoke no English!
Schliama became Roy Seddon Llewelyn Leroi Brian Etherton!


The evidence for Jedrzejow (in chronological order) so far:

1. Schliama's birth certificate (1890) >from Jedrzejow

2. A letter >from the Jedrzejow rabbi (no year) stating that Shamaya Moshe
passed away (4th day of parshat Mishpatim) in a hospital in Kielce and his
son Haim in London has a responsibility to say kaddish on this day.

3. The UK naturalisation lists Haim as "coming >from Jedrzejow".


There are some 70 Borenshtain/Berenshtain BMD records for 1885 to 1910, and
30 Brandys, but apart >from Schliama I can't place any of them as known
relatives. I haven't ordered every record to check for a connection as I
can't afford it, but I still cannot figure out why I can't at least find
Haim's marriage, Hindele and Sarele's birth, or Shmaya Moshe's death. Am I
missing something?

Am I left with no option but to order every record possible and hope for
the best? Is it likely that Haim and Malka came >from somewhere else, were
married and had 2 children there, moved to Jedrzejow and had Schliama, and
then emigrated to London to have 5 more children? I'm stumped!

Suggestions please.

Thanks,
Ruvane Bernstein.

Re: How to Determine if Someone is Jewish #belarus

I think the best way today to find your Jewish ancestry is to do a DNA
test.
Genes don't lie.

I use FTDNA. www.familytreeDNA.com

suggestions on where to research, where to wander and how to get
there. Students will have the opportunity to select a branch to
