FindMyPast Free Access to British and Irish Roots Collection #unitedkingdom

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Findmypast has created a "special" collection >from its existing records
called the British and Irish Collection. The intent is to make it easier to
search specifically for the immigrant ancestor rather than searching the
entire Findmypast database. The collection spans more than 400 years of
migration between the British Isles and North America, all in one place, and
holds 98 million records. Currently, access to the database is free. No end
date was given, but can change at any time.

When searching the data base, the results return with an icon of a "page".
This indicates it is a transcription of the actual record. When you open the
icon, there is an opportunity to view the original source document, however,
for most of the source documents, a paid subscription is necessary. An
example of a free source document would be the US Census.

I did a search of the surname "Cohen", no first name or other information
and received a return of 38,377 results. The results were from: Ireland,
England and Scotland and ranged >from the US Census to Passenger Lists
Leaving the UK (1890-1960), US Passenger Lists, US Marriages, Canadian
Border crossings and more. The country of origin was predominately listed
as England, and Ireland, but there were some >from Canada, Scotland and
Wales. In this example I did not find birth, and death records,
naturalization applications and draft registrations, but they are also
included in the collection's records. In full disclosure I did not view all
38,000 return results. If a record, such as a US military record, says the
soldier was born in Wales or Ireland or the UK, or in a US census record
someone in the family was born in England, Ireland, Scotland or Wales then
that record should be in the collection. Anyone leaving the UK or Ireland
emigrating to Canada, the US or the Caribbean, or any British or Irish
immigrant who stopped temporarily in Canada en route to the US or Caribbean
and anyone listed on any US or Canadian record with British or Irish
origins, birthplace or parents should be in the collection.

Immigrants from Poland to France post WW1 #general

Rashi Rosenzweig
 

Hi Genners:

Looking for information regarding nationalization for Jews >from Poland to France in
around 1918 The family name is Kroutchtein (was changed >from Kraugtszlengel) and
they moved to Paris >from Lublin soon after World War I. My great uncle Charles
Kroutchtein (maternal grandmother's brother) settled there and lived in the 12th
district of Paris as well as in Sceaux. Charles was married to Teresa and had 3
children: Jean, Bernard and Paulette. I know that both Jean and Bernard wrote for
Le Equipe magazine for many years.

If anyone can advise me about naturalization papers, etc, I'd greatly appreciate
it. Thanks in advance and wishing you all a Chag Chanukah Sameach!!

Warm regards,

posted some records for which I need a translation.

There is 1 in German I think, the other 3 are in Polish. A full translation of all
info/columns would be very helpful. They are on ViewMate at the following
addresses:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM62727

marriage of Debora Gertler & N Halpern -- in German?
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM63029

birth of Ruchel Halpern
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM63033

birth of Chaim Josef Halpern -- can't find in Vad Yashem, wonder what
happened to him?
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM63028

Apologies if I am double posting or doing this wrong.

Thanks very much!

Re: Looking for Grave of Yehuda Goor (Grazovsky) in Israel #general

Asher <aarbit1@...>
 

I hope that this reply will be useful to other researchers with similar questions.

There are two easy ways to get this information.
1) The records of the Trumpeldor cemetery are available on-line at www.kadisha.biz.
You need to use Internet Explorer, not Chrome. Yehuda Gur Gresovsky son of Isaiah
Reuben is buried in section 1, area D, row 18, grave 12. He is buried next to his
wife, Rachel.

2) The entire cemetery has been photographed and is available on-line for free at
www.billiongraves.com. You need to type the name in Hebrew (yod-heh-vav-deled-heh
gimel-vav-resh). There are nice clear photographs and transcriptions of both
Yehuda's gravestone and Rachel's gravestone.

JewishGen 2018 Genealogy Courseware #belarus

Phyllis Kramer
 

2018 brings a variety of JewishGen classes to meet the research
challenges both for newcomers and those who wish to enhance their
skills. We specialize in interactive, three to four week genealogy
courses, featuring a personal mentoring program tailored to your
research projects. Classes are offered in a private online FORUM open
24/7 to accommodate international students. Students post an ancestral
branch, set goals for their research, and work one on one with the
instructor.

Organize Your Data and Research Online focuses on your immigrant
ancestors in the United States. Six online text lessons begin with
organization and search techniques, and continue with census, vital
records and Ellis Island manifests. (Jan 5th)

The Intermediate Course, Complex Genealogical Research is for students
who, despite basic online research, have not yet found the Hebrew
names, approximate birth year or former European town for the
immigrant; it covers more complex U.S. topics such as naturalization,
death records, military and governmental records, and local archival
research (next class begins April 6th). This class is also taught in
the summer with an emphasis and field trip in New York City

Independent Study. This class offers students a chance to work on any
genealogical project within the expertise of the instructor. The
course may include United States research or the country of immigrant
origin for one branch, one surname studies, or holocaust information
searches. Your topic, your schedule, your questions. Details are on
the Education Page. (Feb 9th)

Courses will open for enrollment 3 weeks before the starting date.
Tuition varies. *Please* read the course descriptions and requirements
on www.jewishgen.org/education and/or contact the instructor.

Finally, our text and exercise based 2 week classes are offered at no
charge to Value Added members of JewishGen. Our first offering in 2018
will be Basic 2 - Search Strategies Using Google, beginning January
29th.
