Jrbaston
 

Dear Fellow Lida District Researchers:

I have just uploaded the translation of the 1850 Revision List and 1851
Additional Revision List for the town of Zheludok to the LitvakSIG Lida
District Research Group Shutterfly site
http://lidadistrict.shutterfly.com

The translations on this site are available only to participants in the
LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group. While they will be publicly
searchable in the JewishGen Belarus Database and LitvakSIG All
Lithuania Database after a period of 18 months, those researchers
who make a qualifying contribution of $100 will have immediate access
to all new Lida District translations for five calendar years -- until
December 31, 2019.

There are a total of 427 lines -- 373 >from the 1850 Revision List
and 54 >from the 1851 Revision List.

I'm adding the 1850 Zheludok surnames to the cumulative surname
list for the 1850 Revision List, which is on our site's home page under
Surname Lists. And I'm also copying it at the bottom of this message.

For those of you who are already part of the LitvakSIG Lida District
Research Group -- thanks so much for your ongoing support -- You
make it possible to get this list and many others for our Lida District
families translated.

For those of you who have not yet joined, go to
www.litvaksig.org/contribute

Scroll down a bit to District Research and then to Lida District, and
enter your $100 contribution. Please let me know you have contributed
so I can enable you to have access to the translations as soon as
possible.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this list or about
the LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group. Please write me at

Shanghai resources #germany

Diana da Costa
 

Hello,

I have hit a large brick wall. I am researching Semon DITTMAN (originally
named Simeon DITTMANN and subsequently Simon) who was born in New York City
on June 28th 1858. Through passport applications and shipping records, I
have established that he left the US in 1895 and I have no evidence so far
that he ever returned. He lived in South Africa until 1906 when he turns
up in Shanghai and the last record I have found was a passport application
to take a holiday in Japan in 1918 after which the trail goes cold.

I have found no record that Semon died in the US and so therefore have
drawn the inference that he probably died in Shanghai or possibly
whilst holidaying in Japan.

Question: is there a data-base or place to where I can send my query in
Shanghai (where Semon claimed to be his permanent home) or possibly Japan.
I have researched in all the usual archival resources but just cannot find
an address or website which I can approach to find out about the remainder
of Semon's life and death. All suggestions gratefully received!

I have also circulated this query to the GERSIG and Early American lists as
Semon's parents (Eduard DITTMANN and Charlotte ROSENFELD) were born in
Bavaria but died in the US, in case someone else is also researching this
DITTMANN family.

Looking for Dr Herbert POLLAK, Tel Aviv #general

Alice
 

My cousin and I are looking for anyone who may know of Herbert POLLAK,
PhD, who in 1962 lived in Shamgar St., Zahala, Tel Aviv. He wrote to
a Wisconsin paper looking for the family of Ferdinand POLLAK (1847-1913)
and his wife Natalie GOLDENRING POLLAK (POLLACK). He was writing a
book about the family as his grandfather was Ferdinand's older brother.
If anyone has information about Dr Pollak or his family I would be very
grateful if they would get in touch with me directly especially as
I plan to attend the conference in Jerusalem later in the year.

Sincerely thanks for any assistance,
Alice Riley
Hadleigh, Suffolk UK

MODERATOR: Please send contact information directly to Alice - and

(France) National Library of France Puts Collection of Fichier Laborde Collection on Line #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The National Library of France's website, Gallica, put the Fichier Laborde
collection on line. The collection is a listing of Parisian artists and
crafts people dating >from the 1500s to the 1700s. An early genealogist,
Marquis Leon de Laborde prepared the books. His hobby was to write out the
names and details of all artists and crafts people he found through baptism,
marriage and death records. The collection is important as many records were
destroyed in 1971 when Paris' City Hall burnt down.

To access the records see:
http://gallica.bnf.fr/Search?ArianeWireIndex=index&p=1&lang=EN&q=fichier+laborde&x=0&y=0
[Or http://tinyurl.com/kfx6osp - MODERATOR]

I did do a search using the French word for Jewish "juif" and there were
hits. They might have been about the art pieces, but it is worth a look.

If you go to Gallica's home page http://gallica.bnf.fr/?lang=EN and type
in "juif" in the search box you can see what they have in their Jewish
collection other than the Fischier Laborde. If you use Chrome as your
browser and on the home page where you put in "juif" and right click on the
results a drop box gives an option to translate into English.

Thank you to GenealogyInTime Magazine for informing us about this new
collection on Gallicia.

is rich in activities and possibilities. Visit www.iajgs2015.org to
see our plans and register now. There is much that makes this
conference unique.

BE A BIG WINNER! Starting February 15th, to encourage registration

MyHeritage.com subscriptions, Ancestry.com subscriptions, free hotel
nights and more. The earlier you register, the greater your chances to
win! Prizes will be added on an ongoing basis. Remember to register at
iajgs2015.org under the Registration tab.


ENHANCED CANCELATION/REFUND: Ortra, our conference organizer, is
offering an enhanced cancellation/refund that will cover both hotel

Tab, Registration FAQ)


WHAT IF I'M SELECTED AS A SPEAKER? Unless you only plan to attend if

Europe, the Sephardic world, America and even Australia. The bounds are
limitless and the conference is your unique opportunity to open these
doors. (More information will be made available.

FIND YOUR FAMILY: Six million Jews live in Israel and they are related
to Jews throughout the world. This conference is the opportunity for you
to pre plan to find your relatives and take advantage of having a family
reunion with your relatives living in Israel. Use our volunteer experts
to help you search out, locate and contact your relatives and to arrange
for a family reunion during the conference period. Look for our guide
and tips to planning for your meeting here. Many of us have found
testimony at Yad Vashem on our family members by Israelis whom we do not
know. Now is the time to enlist our help and connect with them and their
descendants. Information will be available under the Program tab, Family
Reunion. You may also write to family-reunions@....

(US-RI) Bill Introduced Proposed to Provide Free Access to Death and Marriage Certificates #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

A bill has been introduced in Rhode Island that if enacted will change the
current Vital Records Law (Section 23-3-23). Provisions of the bill would
do the following:

The public is allowed to examine and copy death and marriage certificates
filed with the Department of Health. Social Security numbers will be
redacted prior to inspection. The proposed law prohibits the department of
health and municipalities >from charging for examination of these records,
but usual per page charges apply for making copies.

Existing provisions that are being recommended to be changed include:
1. A person could not inspect, copy or disclose information in vital
records except if authorized by regulation or in this bill.
2. It contains a 100 year embargo for birth records, however, the
records will be open for research by any member of an incorporated genealogy
society. It limits to the specific family members, and others including
members of genealogical societies the ability to examine the original or
copy of a birth certificate or record. There is an appeals process if a
records custodian refuses to permit inspection or copying of records.
3. The public is allowed to examine and copy and death and marriage
certificates filed with the Department of Health. Social Security numbers
will be redacted prior to inspection. The proposed law prohibits the
department of health and municipalities >from charging for examination of
these records, but usual per page charges apply for making copies .

Shanghai resources #general

Diana da Costa
 

Hello,

I have hit a large brick wall. I am researching Semon DITTMAN (originally
named Simeon DITTMANN and subsequently Simon) who was born in New York City
on June 28th 1858. Through passport applications and shipping records, I
have established that he left the US in 1895 and I have no evidence so far
that he ever returned. He lived in South Africa until 1906 when he turns up
in Shanghai and the last record I have found was a passport application to
take a holiday in Japan in 1918 after which the trail goes cold. I have
found no record that Semon died in the US and so therefore have drawn the
inference that he probably died in Shanghai or possibly whilst holidaying in
Japan.

Question: is there a data-base or place to where I can send my query in
Shanghai (where Semon claimed to be his permanent home) or possibly Japan.
I have researched in all the usual archival resources but just cannot find
an address or website which I can approach to find out about the remainder
of Semon's life and death. All suggestions gratefully received!

I have also circulated this query to the GERSIG and Early American lists as
Semon's parents (Eduard DITTMANN and Charlotte ROSENFELD) were born in
Bavaria but died in the US, in case someone else is also researching this
DITTMANN family.
