Info on Passport Applications and Question #general

Fran Stark <franstark@...>
 

Hello Group,
Back in December I sent a post about passport application in which I
stated that the fee for such was $21.00 and that I had not decided
whether to order it or not. I had many private requests asking me if I
knew what information was contained, etc. I just received the package
and I am posting to the entire group. The info is found below.
My question is, now that I have the application and the passport itself,
how can I determine if he ever made the trip?


Tonight I received the passport application for my grandfather Morris
PUPKO. I received 12 photo copied pages 17 x 17 and I paid $21.00. It
was worth every penny!
The passport was applied for January 12, 1922. It states his place of
birth (Uzovka, Ekaterinoslav, Russia. Born March 27, 1877.) This
information is handwritten on form for Naturalized Citizens, so I
presume that native born citizens would have a different form. It lists
his fathers name, when he arrived, when and where he naturalized,
occupation at time of application and residence.
It also lists countries he wants to visit.
Then there is a two page typewritten form in which he states his reason
to travel. My grandfather wanted to go back to Russia to by furs and to
"straighten out the tangled affairs of his sister"(whatever that means).
A copy of his passport photo was also enclosed. I believe that this is
what most of you will find. In my case there are also memos >from the
state department.
Apparantly, there was a man named PUPKO who was listed on a "Dutch Black
List" (Communist) and they thought that my grandfather might be this
man. The memos refer to a "U-2" list. Since they cleared my
grandfather of ever being in Holland, they decided to issue his
passport.

Maybe the other PUPKO belongs to one of you other PUPKO researchers?

Re: DNA #unitedkingdom

I am a Rosoff. I am trying to establish the relationship with
other Rosoff, Rosof, Rossoff, ect families who all seem to come
from Dokshitz in Belarus. The only way may be by dna. What is
best way to proceed?
You would need to find a Rosoff >from that area who is willing to provide
a sample, and then find a laboratory which is equipped to do testing
on a special area of the Y-chromosome which is inherited unchanged
through many generations of males. Testing would be very expensive,
though. Paul Taylor, who is one of the authors of the articles on the
Thomas Jefferson / Sally Hemings paternity study, posted some messages
in soc.genealogy.methods a year or so ago. You can search that newsgroup
for his e-mail address.

Re: Needed- brief Polish Translation #general

Tilford Bartman <bartman@...>
 

Hello,

I have been fortunate to have gotten ahold of a historic document
written in April of 1945 that I'm told concerns the disposition of
Jewish property in my fathers native Zabludow Poland. It is just a
paragraph or two long. I would be most appreciative is someone can
take a look at it and tell me what it says. I can email an electronic
copy right away to anyone who can do this for me.

Thanks So Much,

Tilford Bartman

MODERATOR NOTE: Please respond privately.

Professional researcher sought #galicia

Edith Spring <adena@...>
 

I am a member of Gesher Galicia.

I am interested in locating the names and addresses of professional

archives for the following towns. Horodenka, Ukraine and Przemysl,
Poland. I am primarily interested in the years prior to 1910.

All help would be greatly appreciated. Please respond privately to:

Chorowiec #galicia

Suzan Wynne <srwynne@...>
 

Rick Hyman asked about where the records of Chorowiec might be today.
As noted in my book, Finding Your Jewish Roots in Galicia: A Resource
Guide, on page 136, Chorowiec was in the sub administrative district of
Podgorze within the main district of Wieliczka. Today, birth, marriage
and death records are in the branch of the state archives in Krakow.
The processes for obtaining information >from this archives are discussed
in Chapter 2 beginning on page 15.

First name of "Hrnah"? #galicia

JoeO222@...
 

Hi...

On a death certificate, one of my female ancetors is listed as having the
first/given name of "Hrnah". Is there such a name? It could have also been
spelled "Hrnak". Or, maybe just a misspelled "Hannah"?

Does anyone have any thoughts? Thanks.

Rapoport #belarus

Sheldon Clare <sheldonc@...>
 

My wife's maiden name was RAPOPORT. Her father was born in Krasna Luki
near Vitebsk. It is a fairly common name that has an interesting history.
It is either of Italian or Portuguese origin. "Rapa" may have come >from the
Hebrew "Rofeh" meaning physician and "Port" could have been the Italian
city of Porto or the Portuguese city of Oporto. Apparently, the original
Rapoports were sephardic.
