Russians to America database #ukraine

NOSHOWCLC@...
 

I posted the information about this database on July 12. I'm sorry so many
had problems. I cut and pasted the description that they offered, but if you
read my first line you would have noticed that I mentioned that it was a free
"lookup" service.

It's true on volunteer lookups, you get some good people who really pay
attention to what you are looking for, and some bad who hastily reply. Some
will send you everything they have with the thought that perhaps later down
the road you will find that one of these people are connected to your
ancestor, so I wouldn't scoff at the fact that these names and ages were not
yours.

I've used this service on and off for the past six months to a year, and
while I'm not too thrilled to be added to their mailing list, it literally
takes me five seconds to unsubscribe. For those complaining about wasting
their time, I'd like to know how much time was really wasted. When I sent in
my requests I'd say it took me all of 2-3 minutes, and less than that to read
the replies. I've had hits and misses with this service, but have never
found it a waste of time, only another avenue for research.

Harry SILVERMAN social security application #general

Bernie Hirsch <bernie06@...>
 

Hello,

I recently received a social security application (I refrain from
acronyms based on previous threads on this subject) for Harry
Silverman, that is not "my" Harry Silverman. It is dated Nov 27, 1936
and he is living at 1359 Broadway in Brooklyn. He was born 6 Sep 1904
in Russia. His parents are Marcus Silverman and Sylvia Svenzel. His
SSN was 058-09-6983 and he worked at Lombardy Frocks on 4812 14th Ave.

I hope this helps someone.

Kind regards,
Bernie Hirsch

I have recently heard about the East European Genealogy Society that might
be of interest to Galicia researchers. On their web site:

http://www.GateWest.net/~eegsi/back.html

there is a Table of Contents of back issues of their publication. >from the
titles of the articles, there appears to be some valuable data that many
people may not have read.

Does anyone subscribe to this publication and/or have back issues? If so,
could you report to our discussion group on the contents of the articles

Thank you.

My GMs family came to the US in 1902. Born in Poland, last residence of
Romania (fresco painter), arriving on a ship >from South Hampton England

Per my GM, her father had been hired in Europe to go to St. Louis to paint

JOWBR template #galicia

Joyce Field
 

I posted this message a month ago but as we are getting closer to our
launch we are still encountering numerous problems with the
submission of data. Therefore, it seems worthwhile to repeat the
message!

Greetings to everyone who is so graciously helping collect data for
the JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR). We appreciate
your hard work! However, as we prepare the data for our launch, we
are running into several data entry problems. So we're taking the
liberty of putting them forth in this forum, in the hope that some of
you who are collecting data will see this message and make sure your
information conforms to our required template. This will save us
hundreds and hundreds of hours in manually correcting data--and in
some cases will save the data itself. Ernie Fine, Technical
Coordinator, thanks you in advance, and urges that you get in touch
with him at <efine@jewishgen.org> if you have any questions or
concerns about technical issues.

Specifically, here are some cautionary notes:

1) Column headings: please use the EXACT wording as shown on the
template. In fact, use the template!
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/working/jowbrtemplate.xls
(template guidelines are at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/JOWBRinstructions.htm)
2) Dates. Please, please, please put all dates in dd-mmm-yyyy format.
This is critical! Dates should look like this: 03-Sep-1876. Note the
leading zero on the day, the three-character month, and the 4-digit
year, and the separation by hyphens. If only a month and year are
known, use "Sep-1876" as the date. If only the year is known, just
use the year. Please do NOT put extraneous information in the date
fields, such as "about." If comments are needed, put them in the
comments field.

3) It is extremely important that date fields be defined as TEXT, not
dates. We have been running into date conversion issues, especially
for those using MAC computers rather than PCs.

4) Locations: please use the MODERN name of a town, and for the USA,
the standard state abbreviation.

5) Extraneous information: we have received many spreadsheets with
comments added on additional lines, with extra columns of
information, with fancy formatting, macros, colors, etc., all of
which have to be edited out, manually. While we appreciate and
understand the work that has gone into creating these, we would
prefer to receive just the data described in the template and
template instructions.

Feel free to contact Harriet Brown, Administrative
Coordinator<hnbrown@gdinet.com> if you have questions about general
procedures and forms.

We are all working hard to get the data ready for the launch and we
want you to know how much we appreciate all your efforts. Without
you this project cannot become a reality.

Krakow Births list #poland

Moshe Wolf <womoshe@...>
 

Hello

In the Krakow Births 1798-1855,71-89 list I found the birth of my
ggggfather. There is a mistake in the list, in the years 1818-1820 the
fathermother name appears in the Meidensurn column. To whom should I tell
it?
In the same list there are almost no details after 1821, is it because the
documents changed or they just didn't put the details in the computer.
