Buenos Aires Burials ON LINE #latinamerica

Rob Weisskirch <rob_weisskirch@...>
 

In case you have not seen the message. The majority of burials in Buenos Aires Jewish Cemetaries are now available on line.

Many of the women include maiden names.

With this information (particularly the date) you can request a Certificada de Difuncion (death certificate) which may include the parents and grandparents' names also.

http://www.amia.org.ar/difuntos.asp You should read Diana Nimcowicz's InfoFile for helpful information. http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/argentina.html


Best of luck,

Steve Morse's Ship-Lists Project Completed #latinamerica

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

Subject: Steve Morse's Ship-Lists Project

Several months ago I posted a message stating that Steve had a list of
every ship arrival into Ellis Island, and for most of them he even had
links back to the manifest pages. It was part of an ongoing project.

Now I learned that Steve has just completed this project after working
on it for two years. His team of over 50 volunteers went through every
one of the 3700 rolls of Ellis Island microfilms >from 1892 to 1924. For
each arrival they found, they recorded the roll, volume, frame, date,
ship-name, and ports.

Now that it is complete, there exists for the first time a searchable
list of every ship arrival along with links to the associated manifest
pages. The list consists of a total of 84,000 ship arrivals.

The searchable list can be accessed by clicking on the "Ship-Lists" link
in the Ellis Island section of Steve's website at
http://stevemorse.org. If you have any questions, please direct them to
Steve and not to me -- his e-mail address is at the top of his website.

Re: site for ship records #general

ilona lerman <phililona2001@...>
 

I seem to remember someone recently posting the
address of a site that can be searched according to
ship's name in order to find the manifest of a ship.
I have the name of the ship my mother-in-law arrived
on in 1921 to Phila. and hope this way I can find the
manifest. I looked in the archives,but didn't find it,
so maybe I didn't see it on Jewish Gen, but perhaps
someone can help.
Thanks.

Galicia: Dabrowa and Nowy Sacz civil records #galicia

Bill Celmaster <bill.celmaster@...>
 

Does anyone know where one might find Jewish civil records >from the mid
1800's or earlier for either Dabrowna (near Tarnow) or Nowy Sacz (aka
Zantz)?

As far as I can tell, neither of these places is explicitly mentioned in
lists of LDS films of Jewish records.

Thanks.

Dear members,

I have posted a photo to ViewMate. It is #4245. This
is a photo of an INGBERG engagement party which took
place in Bialystock in 1936. I am posting this
message here as I know there were also INGBERG
relatives in Krakow who might very well be in this
photo. Please look at the photo and if you recognize
anyone, please contact me privately at:

Re: R' Matitiahu KALTER of Nowy Sacz #galicia

Hi Logan,

Have you looked at the 1923 and 1929 Polish Business Directories?

I wrote a piece on navigating the 1923 Polish Directory
http://www.jewishgen.org/Galicia/html/polish_bus_dir.html

The 1929 is at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/bizdir/start.htm

It shouldn't be too hard to find the page since you know the town and a
business category.

I imagine that Debbie Raff has contacted you re Nowy Sacz.

Regards,

Shelley

I would be grateful if anyone with information about my relative Rabbi
Matitiahu/Mates KALTER, who lived in Nowy Sacz before WWII and until his
death in 1942, would contact me. He was born in 1893 in Przemysl, was
married to Zisale WEINTRAUB, had two children, and may have owned a
hardware/tool store there.
