Ides Morgenstern #poland

Milton Koch
 

Ides Morgenstern and her sister, Bronia, both >from Strusow, Galicia,
arrived in New York City to live with their father, Adolph, as per
NYC 1940 census.

I am looking for any descendants to help answer some additional
questions about other Ides in the family lineage.

Thank you.

Hi Marty,

If you search ItalianGen using a wild card search and keying M*STER
you will find the index record as Mefster Anna 68y Dec 26, 1932 24925 Kings

I am looking for the death record of Anna MEISTER, wife of Abraham
MEISTER and daughter of Isaac Abramowitz and his wife Pessa.

I found her (on familysearch) as having died December 26, 1932 in Kings
County, NY but I cannot find any confirmation or even a trace on
ItalianGen.org, Ancestry or any of the grave databases.

How should I interpret this? If necessary, I can shlep into NYC and look at
microfilm #2070587 but I'm wondering if anyone has any other suggestion/path
to try tracking down her grave.

Dear Cousins,

Mary Meyers is looking for the death record of Anna MEISTER. He has the date
as December 26, 1932 and location of death as Kings County >from Family Search,
but can't find her on italiangen.org or other databases.

She is in the italiangen.org database as 'Anna Mefster." I found her by doing
a wild card search with the last name M*R and using A for the first initial.
The certificate number is 24925, and the date and location match.

Regards,

Ira

Marty Meyers asked about locating a death record for Anna Meister (died 26 Dec
1931 in Brooklyn, NY) and mused about checking FamilySearch microfilm.

Be advised of two things: one may still certainly go to a Family History Center
or affiliate and check microfilm (if they decided to keep their film rolls on
long-term loan), but one may no longer borrow rolls >from the Family History
Library in Salt Lake City (due to issues with availability of microfilm and
maintenance microfilm readers they have stopped lending as of last week).

Never fear, however! It turns out that the BMD certificates for New York City
have been digitized by FamilySearch and are available to be viewed via
computers at Family History Centers or Libraries. They may also be available
at affiliate libraries and centers.

For Anna Meister's death certificate, go to the catalogue on FamilySearch:
https://www.familysearch.org/catalog/search
Enter Brooklyn for the place and then click on the appropriate Brooklyn (United
States, New York, Kings, Brooklyn). Click Search. A list of items in their
catalogue for this location will be displayed. Scroll to the bottom of the page
and select vital records, then "Brooklyn, death certificates, 1919-1949"
<https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/758153?availability=Family%20History%20Library >
[Shortened URL: https://goo.gl/L41RFe ]

The microfilm roll (2,070,587) of interest includes a camera icon (all in this
collection do). That means the certificates have been digitized.

Find a Family History Center near your home and make sure to take a thumb drive
with you so you may download the digitized image.

I have visited a small Family History Center near my home twice in the last
couple of weeks to acquire birth, marriage and death certs. This easy access
has substantially changed my research process!

Dear Bessarabers, all genealogical researchers,

I like very much working with all of you for many years. Imagine, our SIG is 6 years old! We did with you many great projects and continue to do. I want to thank all volunteers who spend their time for the sake of our group.

Here are several our volunteers on the Wall of Honor: https://www.jewishgen.org/Bessarabia/DCA_WallOfHonor.asp, but we have many many more people who help us, and I want to thank them all... they all be at our Wall of Honor.

I also want to thank everyone who support our group with donations and we can run our projects: getting set of records >from Archives, photographing tombstones on many cemeteries in the region, inviting people to the conference to share their knowledge with the group and more.

Shana Tova v'Metuka to all of you!

Have healthy and sweet New 5778 Year!

Thank You: Xanmob Family Research (Ha-ee-mov / Haimov) #ukraine

Harvey Chimoff <hchimoff@...>
 

Hello again.

Many thanks for all the kind replies to my original message!

Personal responses are coming.

And thanks for the comments on the Russian language spelling of the
family surname. I do have the exact Russian language spelling with
Cyrillic letters. However, the Jewish Gen email system does not allow
using any non-English letters, so I used an English approximation (a
poor one). I should have explained that in my original note.

Shana Tovah to all!

Regards,

Harvey Chimoff

To: jewishgen@lyris.jewishgen.org


Hello. I=E2=80=99m looking for any information about my paternal grandfathe=
r=E2=80=99s
family, specifically what happened to them before/during/after World
War II.

The Russian surname was Xanmob, with a phonetic pronunciation of
Ha-ee-mov. (We use Haimov as the English version of the Russian
surname in our family history.)

The family was >from the Ukrainian province of Chernigov, in the old
Russian Empire. My grandfather Morris (Moishe) was born in Starodub
and then moved to Pochep. Today, Starodub and Pochep are in the
Russian Federation.

Morris was born approximately 1887 and arrived in the United States in
1908. His parents were David Haimov and Ida Minnie Wilkov.

Morris=E2=80=99 siblings were Samuel (Russian pronunciation of Sa-mu-ee=E2=
=80=99-l),
Myerch (Myer), Sarah, and Rachul (Rose - Russian pronunciation of
Ra-h-ee'-l -- with last letter 'L' being soft. There may have been two
other brothers.

Morris apparently had a nephew named Bernard Chaimov. Cile Chaimov was
either Bernard=E2=80=99s sister or wife.

Some of the extended family may have been part of the Soviet
evacuation to Tashkent (Uzbekistan) in February 1942, including
Morris=E2=80=99 brother Myerch (Myer) Haimov, and possibly women and
children.

Thanks very much!

Re: Idel Efraim SHERMAN #general

From: Rosalind Joy Romem:
...Brothers were Harris in Scotland. Louis in UK. Ada and Louis Compinsky in
USA (W Virginia, NY State and finally California), Sarah and Dora and Rocheleah
in London.Abraham Isaac in Vilna....
Rosalind is looking for missing/unknown siblings where she knows what happened
to some of the family members. One idea is to look at the probate files if any
exist for the known siblings. They might mention a long lost sibling or even
have left something to a sibling living cross town or across the globe. For he
names you see as candidates you could try and get their individual death
certificates in the USA as they might have details but personally I would start
with the known siblings looking at probate and other records to see if a family
member shows up. Even check things like witness names at a marriage to see.
Also check local newspapers because I have found articles about parties that
list guests, etc. and you find family members there.

Polish records, in Russian 1868 and beyond #general

J G
 

Firstly, I would like to thank 2 amazing people who volunteered with great
effect to translate a trove of records in Polish and thereby uncovering a
family tree going back to the 1700's. They know who they are, and they are,
what if nothing else, all of this effort is among our greater group, dedicated,
amazing, and bringing the memory back in part of a once possibly erased people.
Not in this case. This family is back. I have thanked them and thank them yet
again immensely for their not only kindness but also being interested as we
unfolded the story of this particular family as we watched the births, deaths,
and marriages in succession over 100 years, and even speculated about them
together. The data was very rich even with these tiny records of Birth,
Marriage and Death.

I have the last of the project at hand starting with 1868, when the records
were then recorded in Russian. No longer in Polish. There are about 15-20
records. The digital copies are very clear.

Is there anyone who might be inclined to translate these? The births and deaths
will be relatively short, and a few marriages longer, as you may know, if you
have done this before.

Any help to complete this family line project is already appreciated in advance.

Please reply to the email, and not to the listserv.

Kind regards
