FW: passenger arrival records UK #general

Ken Cohen <Ken@...>
 

With regard to naturalisation papers, these are indeed at the Public Records
Office at Kew and I believe they are available there up to 1923. But,
although I haven't done this myself yet, I'm told it's not only the
naturalistion papers, but also the application and other background papers
(eg police report) that are available.

There are no passenger arrival records for the main period of immigration
1880s onwards.

Naturalisation records are available at the Public Records Office, Kew in
London, up to the 1920s (I think). They are a wonderful source of
information. They are already indexed.

The host society is the Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain!!!

Are there passenger arrival records for UK in the time period 1900
-1920?
What years are the Naturalization index available to be searched?
Will the English society be preparing a search index before the UK conv.
in 2001?
I would like to get the best of preparing before next summer....thinking
ahead!!!

Russian word/name Yashpoyckiy? #general

Ronald D. Doctor <rondoctor@...>
 

I have found a number of my ancestors on the LDS microfilms of Kremenets
vital records. The left side of each page is in Russian, the right side in
Yiddish. One of the entries has me confounded. This is a birth record for my
grandmother, Reizil VORIR. There is a column that gives the father's and
mother's name and the father's social class. This is a transcription of the
words that follow the indicator for the father's name:

Yashpoi'skiy Duvid' Vorir' (in Russian)
Dalet-vav-dalet Vav-aleph-resh-yud-resh ?-?-aleph-mem-pe-aleph-vav.

In the Yiddish, I can't make out the first two letters of the last
word. It looks like a mem followed by another mem, but with the
second vertical of the first mem in common with the first vertical
of the second mem,

The question is, what does the word Yashpoi'skiy (and its equivalent in
Yiddish) mean or represent?

As far as I can figure out, it may be (1) a given name, (2) a patronymic,
(3) an occupation, or (4) a social class. I can't find a translation that
would fit either (3) or (4). Apparently it is not (1), a given name, because
a later marriage record for Reizil indicates her father's given name is
Duvid, not Yashpoi'skiy. So, that leaves a patronymic as the remaining
possibility. But I've never seen a patronymic preceding the given name, and
this word seems to have *two* patronymic suffixes, oi' and skiy. Also,
Beider's "Dictionary of Jewish Surnames >from the Russian Empire" indicates
that a *surname* (not a given name) Yashpa is known in Kremenets. So, perhaps
it *is* a patronymic, but an unusual one?

I'd appreciate any help that all you gurus out on JewishGen might provide.

Re: Schapsel name equivalents #general

I believe that it is most commonly used as a "nickname" for the hebrew name
Shabsai (or Shabtai).

Does anyone know what the Hebrew equivalent of the Yiddish Schapsel would
be? I
assume that Schapsel means "lamb" or "little sheep" in Yiddish, but I'm
just
guessing.

Also, does anyone know if there was a strong connection (trade) between
Mir and
Konigsberg, down the River Nieman?

Need help locating vanished street in Hampstead, London #general

Derek & Rosemary Wenzerul <Dandr@...>
 

Re Naidia Woolf's query - Digest 27th July

Ferncroft Avenue in Hampstead still exists, it is now in London postal area
NW3.

It runs between Platts Lane and Heath Drive, although Croftway which crosses
it on the 1988 map appears to have gone on a 1995 map.

It is possible that earlier maps would have listed it under County of
Middlesex, not London.

It is just east of the junction where the main road A41 turns off Finchley
Road into Hendon Way, and west of Hampstead underground (Northern Line)
station.

Montagu Road, with its Edmonton Federation Cemetery & the smaller adjoining
Western Synagogue Cemetery is just off the A406 North Circular Road in Upper
Edmonton, approx 1 3/8 miles east of the junction with the A10 Great
Cambridge Road.

Naidia - your maps must be of central London only, Edmonton is 8 - 10 miles
North-North-East of centre.

A lot of rebuilding has been done in Fieldgate Street. The area in the
angle between the junction of Whitechapel Road and Fieldgate Street is now
an enormous Mosque complex, with Fieldgate Street Synagogue tucked in behind
it.

Regards,
Derek ( St. Albans, UK )

You may want to check the City Directory for Manhattan for the relevant
years. A City Directory is like a telephone book, but without the telephone numbers. They were compiled in the 19th Century and early 20th. They are available on microfilm in the Municipal Archives on Chambers St. in Manhattan. Also, I assume at the Public Library on 42nd St. Unfortunately, not every one is listed. Good luck, Scott Singer

Also, although this individual was 14 yrs. old, I couldn't seem to
find any one of the ship with him that I recognized. I thought this was odd
-- he was a little young to be traveling by himself. I'm going to go back and check the microfiche again soon -- I don't have to tell you how long it takes to look though all the names on a ship. However, on the ship record it lists that his passage was paid by his father, and that his father lived at 324 Cherry St. I know that they all lived in Manhattan when they got here, probably downtown. Is there a way to search for who lived at a particular address (in this case, of course, a building) in 1900 or 1901? I thought of the census, but I think the first people in his family (they came over a couple at a time), first came over in 1900 so they might not have made the census. I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

SUBJECT: Stary Cmentarz Zydowski w Lodzi.
Jews -- Poland -- Lodz.
Jewish Records Indexing - Poland will be indexing the Chevra Kaddisha
records of 19th Century Lodz. These include the more than 5,000 deaths and
burials listed in Stary Cmentarz Zydowski w Lodzi (The Old Cemetery
of Lodz), published by the Jewish Community of Lodz in 1938. For a
complete description of the contents of this book, see The Old Cemetery in
Lodz, by Chaim Freedman on the Lodz ShtetLinks web site.

JRI-Poland has taken on this indexing project with the enthusiastic
support of Mr. Symcha Keller, head of the Jewish Community of Lodz. The
old cemetery of Lodz was destroyed during World War II. The much larger
new Lodz cemetery survived nearly intact and planning for the indexing of
the burial records of the new Lodz cemetery is underway. The indices to
these burials will also be added to the JRI-Poland web site.

A web site (currently hidden) has been created for the Stary Cmentarz
Zydowski w Lodzi indexing project but the formal announcement is waiting
completion of the detailed indexing instructions and data entry templates.
Volunteers will be needed for the project and a call for same will be made
on the JewishGen and JRI-Poland mailing lists.
