Re: Online List of Litvak soldiers #lithuania

I have compared the on-line list to the one I found at the library and
find that while there are similar names, the lists are not the same.
For example, my list has 17 names >from the city of Vilna while the on
line list has only 7 - 11, depending on how you count it. The list I
found contains towns and names not on the on-line list and vice versa.


For those that sent me requests, I will look at my list and let you know
if I find anything for you.

"Gminy" was an administrative unit in Congress Poland. The word means
community. It could be one town or a group of small towns. This is the
community of Potok Zloty (zloty means gold). I've seen reference to this
town, but I can't remember where.

I am not sure what to make of the document below. It is a birth

the usual document >from this time period, there is only one date give
for the birth and for the day of registration. What should I make of
this? I would like to record a birth day--but should I interpret the

Thanks for sharing and posting the above leads, all of which I didn't know
about. However, not to top what you provided above, may I mention the two
perhaps consistently regarded as best genealogical search engines that Gary
Motokoff was good enough to share in a recent newsletter of his, and that
Drew Smith wrote about in a recent issue of Genealogical Computing by doing
research on hit rates--- alltheweb.com and google.com

However, a friend just told me of an enormous search engine that in the
website's words, represents--- "Over 500 of the Internet's best search
engines, databases, indexes, and directories in a single site. The
ALL-IN-ONE starting point for Internet searching!"

It is--- allonesearch.com [Notice that the separate words are "all one
search"]

I used it the other day, and found some leads I didn't know of, especially at
their People sublink (There's a list of alternative types of sites on their
home page, and you select one set at a time.)

Best of luck!

Additional Hamburg passengers on list online #poland

BARBARU@...
 

I thought that those of you who had ancestors who left Europe via Hamburg
might want to know that the list of Hamburg passengers has been expanded. In
addition to the list for 1890, the list of those who left via Hamburg in 1891
has now been completed and there are partial lists for 1892, 1893 and 1894.
Good luck in your searches.

<< Gminy Potok Zloty >>

"Gminy" was an administrative unit in Congress Poland. The word means
community. It could be one town or a group of small towns. This is the
community of Potok Zloty (zloty means gold). I've seen reference to this
town, but I can't remember where.

JRI Poland #Poland 1896 Birth Certificate--only one date?! #poland

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

I am not sure what to make of the document below. It is a birth
certificate >from Piotrkow (north of Czestochowa), >from 1896. Unlike
the usual document >from this time period, there is only one date give
for the birth and for the day of registration. What should I make of
this? I would like to record a birth day--but should I interpret the
date as being in the old calendar or the new calendar??
