Can anyone help with the followin which appears in Krakow Survivors list:
SCHEIER ANNA 09.06.1904 Kraków SALOMON & ESTER LACK Anna Weksler zawarla
slub dnia 17.12.1946 w Krakowie z Hermanem Katzem; 1.voto WEKSLER.<

I know that Anna was a daughter of Salomon & Esther Scheier (nee Lack)and
I gather that "zawarla slub dnia 17.12.1946" means she got married on that
day in Krakow.

But did she marry WEKSLER? Or KATZEM? and what does 1. Voto signify.

Any suggestions most welcome - it is so wonderful to find a survivor for
once, rather than a victim.

Hello,
I've received a reply >from the Bialystok archive in
Poland regarding a birth certificate request of mine.
Can someone tell me please if the main idea of this
paragraph is simply that "The Bialystok Archive Does
*not* Hold Records for Stanislaw Region"

"
Archiwum Panstwowe w Bialymstoku Oddzial w Lomzy
uprzejmie informuje, ze w swoim zasobie nie
przechowuje akt stanu cywilinego z terenu by-
lych Kresow Wschodnich, w tym: wojewodztwa

(I hope someone can understand it despite the fact
that the special Polish characters had to be omitted)

Manuscript #general

Jonathon Podolsky
 

Greetings,

I have recently found out that a relative possesses a manuscript written by
her late husband about his life and the family business. Her daughter may
have a copy as well. The mother is in her early 90's so I want to act
fast. I am being somewhat general, due to the sensitive nature of the
situation, but needless to say, this manuscript would be of tremendous
value to my genealogical research. Others in the family have asked for a
copy, but were declined apparently because there may be some embarrassing
or scandalous information. I haven't seen the mother since I was a child
and don't know the daughter. My thought is to write a letter of
introduction and explain my interest in genealogy without mentioning the
book until I follow-up with a phone call and have gotten into the
conversation a bit. Can anyone provide strategy suggestions or important
points I should convey?

Also, if anyone knows Jewish genealogical researchers in Western,
Massachusetts please let me know by sending a private email. WMJGS is
hoping to expand our reach to Berkshire county.

Thank you in advance,

Shtetl Chineveh? Austria/Poland?? #general

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

I wonder if anyone can come up with suggestions as to the actual town that
my great-grandmother said she came >from - pronounced - Chineveh in
Austria/Poland. My great-grandfather came >from Zolynia nr. Lancut - (he
said this was Austria, but it is now Poland)

Could it have been Sieniewa?

I look forward to any suggestions. - I have been through shtetl links but
cannot seem to connect.

Thank you.

SITE CITE - early passenger ships to America - Transcribers Guild #usa

Edward Frank <edlfrank@...>
 

This may be old news; if it is I apologize for wasting everyone's time.
There is a web site that lists the passengers on immigrant ships,
including those arriving in the US prior to 1850. There are seven "tabs"
on the home page.

Under "PASSENGERS" there are listed six "Volumes", "German departures",
"NY Arrivals", "Last updates" In the "volumes", you find the same years,
but different ships and lists, in each.

The volumes are arranged by year, so that if you know the year your
ancestor arrived, you can look for that year in each volume.

The names of the ships are listed under each year. Make sure that you
explore the other six "tabs."

The volumes make it eash to find people. You can look by, Port of
Departure, Port of Arrival (New Orleans, Baltimore, NYC, etc.),
Captain's Names, Surnames of Captains AND PASSENGERS. This last one gives
all ships that the surname was found on. For common names, such as FRANK,
there are a lot of ships. WARNING: Remember that the spelling of
surnames cannot be checked by SOUNDEX.

A caveat: The entries are by volunteers who were doing there own
research.

The entries are random by ship; a person may list a bunch of ships for a
given year but only those leaving Liverpool, for instance. The quality of
each list varies as does the information that they contain. BUT, if you
are looking for 2 Germans who arrived in 1839 and 1845, respectively, as I
am, "Germans to America" only starts in 1850. I haven't found anyone yet,
but I think that it is a worthwhile place for our SIG members to look, if
all else has failed.

They state that they have 5000 ships and 1/2 a million passengers listed.

http://immigrantships.net

Is the name of the site for the Immigrant Ships Transcribers Guild.

An example:
The ship BAYARD >from Havre, France to NY in Sep 1828 lists many passengers
from "BADDEN" and "BARDEN". I believe the transcriber either didn't think
that the preparer of the list meant BADEN, or that the original preparer
wrote like me.

I would appreciate hearing >from anyone who's helped by this. Happy hunting!

ABRAM GOODMAN/ISADORE KRIGSMAN #poland

Susan Tait Porcaro <suetaitporcaro@...>
 

Hello,
This is my first posting to this list. I am researching my husband's
side, but do not know where they came from. Their naturalization papers
listed Poland, but that's pretty vague! They were:

Isador Krigsman - born January 1868 in Poland (?) married Yetta Goodman
about 1893, lived in Boston, Mass. Their son Samuel Philip Krigsman is
my husband's grandfather.

Abram Goodman - father of Yetta, born about 1853 in Poland, wife name
Lillian (NLN) lived in Boston - listed in 1900 census

Any info or advice is greatly appreciated. I just don't know where to go
with these people. Thank you

Jewish Agency in Jerusalem for information about the ship, ots fate and
its passenger. The Jewish Agency (I think it's POB 92, Jerusalem) has
pretty accurate records of all clandestine immigrants. Yoiu can google for
the addresses, or look them up in jewishgen archives.
