Dr. Steve Morse has made a major contribution in the field of
genealogy research by easing "brick walls" in his development of a
website tool/program -- The One Step Website, http://www.stevemorse.org
Dr. Morse will address the use of his website and other sources of
genealogical information through the vehicle of case studies.

When Dr. Morse first tried to use the Ellis Island website, he was
frustrated by the inability to accomplish a powerful search in a single
step. Basic tasks took multiple, lengthy searches. Out of necessity,
he created a "One Step" search form that issued searches of the Ellis
Island website and many other websites, ....combining and filtering
results, allowing researchers to explore the Ellis Island website >from
his website in ways not possible on the Ellis Island website itself.

Need Help With Polish Map Abbreviation "Kol." #general

Bob Fitterman
 

I am trying to identify the historical name of a town now called Alba,
Belarus, in the eastern half Grodno Guberniya during 1930s. I located
a Polish military map >from 1921 which shows its name as "Kol. Alba"
and I was curious what the abbreviation "Kol." indicated. If anyone
can answer this question, please let me know.

If you are interested in its location, it is on the road between
Ruzhany and Kosow Poleski and was the site of the German border point
before the Germans advanced further in 1941. It can be seen on this
map: https://goo.gl/maps/KL6aES56tep

Thanks!

Re: Evading Russian draft? #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

I saw two places with draft records:
- one was similar to Revision Lists, but the title stated that these were
conscription records, and only young male were listed, and also even
brothers were listed separately (no family ties).
Such lists were for Bessarabia Gubernia, but possible exist for other
Russian Gubernias;
- newspapers. I believe that was a 'Bessarabia Gubernia Vedomosti',
published in Russian in Kishinev, the capital of Gubernia >from 1860s to
1914. It has lists of people drafted by towns... with surnames and names.

Subject: Evading Russian draft?
From: sstahl@...

X-Message-Number: 1

After tracking down my g-grandfather's (Israel Stessel) probable birthplace
(Pervomaysk, Ukraine - thanks to everyone who helped) I remembered a family
story that said he fled to avoid the Russian draft. Is there any way to
search Russian draft lists? He was born in 1884 so the draft would have been
in the late 1890s

Thanks

Name on 1895 business directory #poland

Beth Sensue
 

My grandmother's family name was Fox in America but was likely
Fuks in Poland. She and her siblings were likely born in Bocki, since
that town is mentioned on various information sources in the US. In the
1895 business directory in the Bialystock SIG, there is a name Fuks
mentioned with the town of Bocki. How would I find out if the person
mentioned in the directory is in any way related to my grandmother's
family? Any suggestions would be helpful.

HTML / Webpage design volunteers needed for the KehilaLinks Project #poland

Susana Leistner Bloch
 

Dear Friends,

Although we have a wonderful team of dedicated and overworked
volunteers, there are not enough of them and prospective webpage
owners have to wait for months to get technical help.

Our webpages are "Virtual Yizkor Books". Just as former residents
took it upon themselves to record all they could remember and publish
a Yizkor Book in memory of their Jewish community , so we, the next
generation, should make sure that whatever we have, every little bit
of information that sheds light on the lives of our Jewish
communities is recorded and preserved. The people who published
Yizkor Books usually were in contact with others living in the same
town or country. Contact with their landsmen in other countries was
difficult. To us, in the 21st century, there are no limitations.
Cyberspace has opened up the world to us.

If you have the necessary skills we urge you to volunteer and help
someone create a webpage dedicated to a Kehila / Shtetl / Gemeinde /
Town / Immigrant Neighbourhood, and in this way honour and memorialize
the Jewish community that once lived there and also provide a valuable
resource for their descendants.

Please contact us : <bloch@...>
