Thank you for help translating title of radical journal plus info on how to see these journals and Romanov photo albums #bessarabia

Patricia Klindienst <epk13@...>
 

Many of you have responded in detail to my request for a translation of the cover of a radical Russian
journal >from the 1905-06 period. Thank you!

And many have asked where I found it and how to see it.

The Beinecke Library at Yale has a rich trove of these journals. I visited in person, but you can study
them in depth online here:
https://beinecke.library.yale.edu/collections/highlights/russian-graphic-art-and-revolution-1905

The Beinecke also has a searchable data base for their remarkable Romanov archive, including family
photo albums of the Czar and Czarina:
https://beinecke.library.yale.edu/collections/highlights/romanov-family-albums

The image on the graphic art of the revolution home page (ovod) is part of my traveling exhibition about
the lives and migration stories of an entire family of Russian Jews who fled Czarist Russia at the turn of
the 20th century, spread across four continents. You can take a look at the exhibition story, with
memorabilia, on my web page should you have any interest,
www.pklindienst.com/NoOneRemembersAlone

Many members of JewishGen have contributed translations as I developed the exhibition over the years,
and I am deeply grateful to you all. The archive continues to grow.

Focsani record search #romania

SamPam Hausfather <hausfather@...>
 

Greetings,
I am planning a trip to Romania in May and trying hard to pin down my
grandfather's birth record, Sam HAUSVATER. In his naturalization
papers, he states he was born in Bacau on 29 July 1885 and left from
Bacau in 1901 to come to New York. He also says he was on the ship
Zeeland in March 1901, although records show no Zeeland departures
before May 1901 and no HAUSVATER on rosters I can locate. Marcel
Glaskie cannot find him in the Bacau records.

What I did find was Nussen (age 51) and Schaja (age 10) HAUSVATER on
the ship Freisland manifest in NY in April 1901, both coming from
Focsani, Romania. Although Schaja shows as too young, there might have
been a reason to show him younger than he really was. Does anyone know
why immigrants might have tried to show as younger than 10? My
grandfather's death record (1947) shows his parents named Nathan
HAUSVATER and Molly GOLD >from Romania. Sam's brother Frederick
HAUSVATER's ship manifest shows him coming to the US >from Focsani in
1904.

Does anyone know if there are any Focsani records available anywhere
and how they can be accessed? I was planning to go to Bacau on my trip
but am thinking I might need to go to Focsani. Has anyone been to
Focsani? Thank you for any insights.

ViewMate Translation Request re marriage certificate of the late Rosa LICHTENSTEIN & Friedrich Wilhelm Karl BURCHARD - German #germany

Dave Lichtenstein
 

Hello Everybody

I've posted vital records in German for which I need translations. It is
available on ViewMate at the following addresses...

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM71071

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM71072

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM71073

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM71074

I believe that this is a marriage record between my paternal Great Aunt Rosa
LICHTENSTEIN and Friedrich Wilhelm Karl BURCHARD. The record spans two
pages (hence VM71071 and VM71072 and VM71073 and VM71074). As far as I can
ascertain the "original" underlying record (designated #436) remains
unchanged for the two different versions of this record, yet that additional
writing in the margins of these records seems to be different for the two
versions (and hence my designation of these records as versions).

Of course I am interested in all the vital record information which appears
in these two versions and also what the additional marginal notation refers
to and why the two different versions. Thank you very much.

Searching for Miriam Leiter Haber BEUTEL in Israel and / or descendants #poland

Selma Sheridan
 

Dear fellow researchers,

I have Yad Vashem Pages of Testimony >from 28/04/99 submitted by Miriam
BEUTEL, living in Kiriat Ata near Haifa, regarding BEUTEL relatives Ana and
Rakhel (born in Vienna), Sara and young boy (born in Podhajce). All were
murdered in Podhajce, Tarnopol, Poland, in 1943. We have been unable to
find Miriam BEUTEL or her family in Israel. She would likely be related by
marriage to my great-great-grandfather Mordechai BEUTEL (and his son Hersch
BEUTEL) >from Skalat near Podhajce, who moved to Vienna. We would like to
contact Miriam BEUTEL and / or her descendants, to learn more about this
branch of the family. Many thanks,

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Please respond privately with family information.
Suggestions of research methods or resources may be shared with
the list.
