KREINES from Zelwa #belarus

LJTRS@...
 

Hello,

I am trying to find anybody who might have information on my family >from
Zelva, or Zelwa. My great grandmother whose name was Rashe (Raczil) KREINES was
born and lived there. I know that she had a lot of family in that town.
She later married my great grandfather, Szloma PERELMUTTER >from Brest Litvosk
and then they both moved to New York with their sons who were all born in
Brest. I looked at Ellis Island records and I have read everything on the web (I
think) about Zelwa but can't seem to find anything that might help me find
my family >from there. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

1925 Brooklyn birth certificate #general

marlene finkelstein
 

I have the certificate # of a May 31,1925 Brooklyn birth record for a
Bernard Miller. I need to view the record to determine if this is the son of
Abraham and Jane Miller, who are known cousins to my deceased father. Since
I can not document the death of Bernard Miller with a death certificate
(though this Bernard Miller died in 1994 in California as per the SSDI) nor
any relationship of Bernard Miller to me, how do I go about obtaining this
birth record >from the NYC Dept. of Health ( which holds NYC birth records
after 1909)?
Please respond to the group as I suspect that this is a common problem that
Genners encounter.
Thanks,
Marlene Finkelstein

Town - Schwalsk or Dudsiki #general

Barbara Zimmer <bravo.zulu@...>
 

On a WWI Draft Registration the town of origin is given as "Schwalsk
Poland Russia. "

On his Ellis Island form he states that he is >from Dudsiki

Any ideas on this one? (I tried ShtetlSeeker) but did not find
anything that fits.

Searching SEGAL #general

Mark Budman <budman@...>
 

Hello,

As a follow up to my original post (below) I might have located Alexander
Segal as the SSDI has a match for this individual. This person matches the
same birth year and month (March 1911). This Alexander Segal passed away in
July 2005 and his last known residence was the Bronx, New York (USA).

Can anyone tell me what would be a good newspaper for this area to check
obituary announcements? Does anyone know of an Alexander Segal >from the
Bronx and his children / descendants? Is there anyone available who might be
able to assist me? (I would gladly pay for services rendered).

Any help would be appreciated.

Best Regards,

Mark

With the release of the 1911 Canadian Census, I have been able to locate
additional names in my SEGAL family research.

I am searching for anyone who has connection to Solomon SEGAL (B 1885), who
lived in Toronto (Elizabeth street at some point) around 1911 (and maybe as
far as 1921) with his family.

Jette Rivka KAISER , Jaroslow, born circa 1850/55 #galicia

a kaiser
 

Greetings to all,

I am seeking information about Jette Rivka KAISER and
her family, born in Jaroslaw in Eatern Galicia,
daughter of Baruch KAISER, a trader in semi prescious
stones. Jette Rivka was married to Eisig RAGER, who
may have been a watchmaker. Jette and Eisig had at
least two children born in Jaroslaw, Chaim RAGER
1874 and Samuel RAGER 1881. Jette and Eisig may also
have lived in Rzeszow ( I know about the data base)
and very likely later moved to Vienna.

Any information or suggestions for further research
especially in Jaroslaw will be most appreciated

Anne Kaiser, New York City
