Dear Jack,
If you have access to the census files on Heritage Quest through your
local library, you may want to seek your relative in the census for
1860, 1870 and 1880. Often the first place an immigrant lives is
with relatives. You will also find out about his occupation and
other personal data.
You might also want to check out the online site about Jewish Civil
War participants (on both sides). I assume he was of conscriptable age.

New Steve Morse Website for Castle Garden Database #general

Subject: New Steve Morse website for Castle Garden database

I see that Steve Morse must have been quite busy yesterday. The new
castlegarden.org website went online yesterday morning, and by late that
evening Steve had a one-step website for it.

Here are some of the things that you can do >from Steve's site which you
can't do when going to the castlegarden.org site directly. You can
specify all your parameters at one time. You can search on year of
birth. You can search on the passengers age. You can specify how you
want your results sorted. And you are not confined to a mere 10 hits
per page but can specify how many hits you want.

Steve's One-Step website is at http://stevemorse.org and his Castle
Garden utility is the link called "Castle Garden Passengers" in the
Castle Garden section. He actually has two such links -- one fetches
the data >from a pay site and the other fetches the data >from castlegarden.org
which is free.

If you have any questions or comments, please address them to Steve directly.
His e-mail address is on the top of his website.

Thank you very much - I never thought of that and will try to pursue it

There is another possibility - that the deceased left instructions in his
Will to bury him in a certain place or manner that was not within the Jewish
law or tradition - in which case you would not find him by searching the
usual places.

My unmarried uncle made such a request, so we donated a lectern, in his
memory, and with a full inscription, to the chapel of the cemetery where his
parents and sister had been buried. I was careful to word the inscription
in such a way as to make the link with the rest of his family.

A genealogist of the future might need to use some ingenuity to find him,
but the trail is there!

In other words, check the ancestor's Will, and also where his "nearest &
dearest" were buried.

Good luck!

Re: R' Wunder's Family Trees #rabbinic

Earlier today, Karen Rosenfeld Roekard <roekard@lmi.net> asked:

[...] If, for example, a son became anything other than a rabbi
[...] would he still be listed on these family charts [...]? Are
the daughters all included [...]? Is there no consistency and it
just depends on the information that was available to Wunder in
his research? Is he totally, absolutely all inclusive and the
final word or are there other sources?
I would appreciate replies to the list in general as I have family
who are listed in Wunder's book "Elef Margaliot," on the MARGOLIS
family which include many, many well known rabbinical families.

It seems to me that every one of the points you put forward also
applies to the Family Tree of the Jewish People (FTJP), on the
Jewishgen site.
I agree completely. And let me reiterate: Sometimes having your information on
the web is the only way you will learn about people and documents you were never
aware of.

All Russia 1897 Census, Latvia #courland #latvia

LOUISE HAJDENBERG
 

Hello,

I have found some information on family members >from this list. I do
not understand one abbreviation I found in the birthplace column.

Birthplace: Nurmusen pag., Talsen d. what is "pag."?

I also cannot find any city in Courland, Talsen district called
Nurmusen. Would anyone have a clue to where it was or could be today?

Middle Name: Hazanoah #latvia #courland

LOUISE HAJDENBERG
 

Hello,

On my Great Grandmother's grave her middle name is listed Chazanoah or
Hazanoah. She came to America >from Talsen Courland in 1891. Her family
seems to have roots >from Lithuania, Kovno Province.

Does this mean daughter of a cantor? If so would someone be called that
if they were not a daughter of a cantor? What other information do you
have about this name? What would be its origins?

Thanks,
Louise Hajdenberg
