Some good sources for St. Louis research are

Missouri Death Certificates 1910-1959 (free)
http://www.sos.mo.gov/archives/resources/deathcertificates/#search

and on Ancestry.com

Missouri Birth Records, 1851-1910
Missouri Marriage Records, 1805-2002
Missouri Marriage Records, 1766-1983
Missouri Death Records, 1834-1910

Going back and forth between those records and US censuses, draft
records, the Social Security Death Index, and PeopleFinders.com, along
with some calls to cemetery offices, should help you fill in the names
of many of your great-uncles' descendants.

The death certificate database is especially valuable because it shows
images of the original records -- complete with cemeteries,
informants' names, addresses, etc. There, for example, you can find...
- the 1932 death certificate of Samuel's daughter
- the 1949 death certificate of Rose Pollack Waxman, Samuel's widow
- the 1951 death record of Samuel's son Herman (aka Hyman) Cherry

Report of the 2010 LitvakSIG Election Committee #lithuania

CHARLES NAM <charlesnam2@...>
 

Report of the 2010 LitvakSIG Election Committee

Charles Nam and Bill Yoffee constituted the Litvak SIG Election Committee
for this year. Gene Alpert served as an Inspector of the election process.
The election was to fill three seats on the Board of Directors. Three
candidates were proposed - Judy Baston, David Hoffman, and Eden Joachim.

Ballots were emailed to 517 eligible voters who could return the ballots by
email, and 12 persons became members after the email ballot deadline -
for a grand total of 529 members.

There was also an opportunity for members who had not returned a ballot by
email to vote in person just prior to the SIG meeting in Los Angeles.
The LitvakSIG Bylaws require that a quorum of at least 10% of the members
must vote to have a valid election. That means a minimum of 53 members
should have voted.

In fact, there were 122 members who voted by email and 15 who voted at the
conference, for a total of 137 members who voted. According to the Bylaws,
candidates are elected who receive a plurality of the votes cast.

The election results show that the following votes were received by
candidates:
Judy Baston - 128
David Hoffman - 131
Eden Joachim - 123

I hereby declare that the three candidates are elected as Directors.

Charles B. Nam, Chair, Litvak SIG Election Committee

family. I believe my great great grandmother was Estera Gitla Krzewin with
her maiden name as Teperowicz with father Chemia and mother Mirka. My great
great grandfather should be Lejba Krzewin but I don't know his parents'
names. I got the records >from the LDS library after finding the films on
JRI Poland.

MORRIS Family + ABELSON - a success story #unitedkingdom

Ann Linder
 

Because of everyone's kindness and generosity I have had success in
locating 2 descendants of the Morris family alive & well in England,
grandsons of Katie and David Morris.
I know that I thanked most if not all of you who emailed me directly
with helpful information. I also want to thank those of you who
posted responses to my queries.

I have been searching for Katie MORRIS for about a year and hit brick
walls every step of the way. She was >from Poland & was my great
grandmother's sister. And because only one family picture survived
the Holocaust I was determined to find her descendants to see if
perhaps I could find more pre-war photos. It was due to a sister of
Katie, also in the UK, that we have the singular picture. So while I
still do not know yet if more such photo(s) exist, I am hopeful once
again. And I've found more cousins!

Thank you once again for taking the time on my behalf to help.

Re: Rabbi Avraham YOFFE/JOFFE's move to England #unitedkingdom

You can look in the Census of England & Wales.
I have found an entry in the 1881 Census for Abraham Jaffe aged 39 a
HebrewTeacher, born in Russia. He had a wife Hannah also aged 39. Perhaps he was
the one you are seeking.
They lived in Whitechapel. There were ten in the household including six children
of whom 2 were born in Russia and the first of the other 4, all born in England,
was aged 9. So they arrived in England no later than 1872.
The two others in the household were a domestic servant, born Russia, presumably
Jewish, and Harris Jaffe aged 55, a Visitor, born Germany, whose occupation was
given as 'Dairyman'.

INTRO -immigrants in Mississippi Louisiana and Texas prior to 1860 #usa

Kay Goldman <kgoldman@...>
 

Howdy,
I just joined GerSig. I have been doing genealogy since the early 1970s.
I live in College, Station, Texas USA and my native language is English.
If the JGFF researcher number is 39599.

Great grandparents were born in the south and my great great grandparents
arrived in the US prior to 1860.

According to the grave stone Minna WOLF OPPENHEIMER was born in Polk-Hanover
on December 25, 1816 and died in Clinton La. on October 23 1889.
Hirsch OPPENHEIMER born Eppingen Jan 1816 died in 1856 in Clinton La. I
have this family lineage but not the wife.
Daughter Hanna OPPENHEIMER born Missouri in 1844 all other children born
and lived in Louisiana.

I am searching for immigration information about the couple and information
about Minna WOLF.

Minna ? HART, Husband named Louis or Lewis HART came to US lived in Osyke
Mississippi.
Louis died in New Orleans during a yellow fever epidemic never listed in
census. Minna born in September of 1826 in Prussia but we do not know where.
She died in Palestine, Texas in 1901.

There was a family legend that a sponsor brought Louis to the US and that
he changed his name but we have also found other HARTs living in Osyke and
were told they were all cousins.

I do not know if this would be Germany or not. I am searching for information
about this family. Thank you

easy to find them.

Note that some of these some of our 40 or so Translation Fund Projects which
are geared to allow those interested in seeing that translations be made
available, to allow tax deductible contributions to cover the costs of
professional translators for these books. Please take a minute to look at
the list of books appearing at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
Needless to say, any donation would be very much appreciated.

Finally, I'm pleased to let you know for those of you who are going to the
IAJGS Conference (unfortunately, I am not) that Jan Meisels Allen has kindly
agreed to facilitate the Birds of A Feather (BOF) meeting on Yizkor Books
Wednesday July 14 8:15AM-9:30 AM. The meeting will be of interest to anyone
concerned with Yizkor (memorial) books-translators, translation coordinators,
those wanting information about arranging a translation project and those
who want to know more about the books in general.

Wishing you all the best,

Please remember that all this month's additions and updates have been
flagged at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html to make it
easy to find them.

Note that some of these some of our 40 or so Translation Fund Projects which
are geared to allow those interested in seeing that translations be made
available, to allow tax deductible contributions to cover the costs of
professional translators for these books. Please take a minute to look at
the list of books appearing at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
Needless to say, any donation would be very much appreciated.

Finally, I'm pleased to let you know for those of you who are going to the
IAJGS Conference (unfortunately, I am not) that Jan Meisels Allen has kindly
agreed to facilitate the Birds of A Feather (BOF) meeting on Yizkor Books
Wednesday July 14 8:15AM-9:30 AM. The meeting will be of interest to anyone
concerned with Yizkor (memorial) books-translators, translation coordinators,
those wanting information about arranging a translation project and those
who want to know more about the books in general.

Wishing you all the best,
Lance Ackerfeld
