Join My Virtual Trip to Ukraine #ukraine

Ellen Shindelman Kowitt
 

My first trip to Ukraine, the birthplace of my paternal grandfather, was
over 20 years ago. I have written about and lectured to genealogists many
times about my travel there in 1997 with my family, and then again in 1999
as a JewishGen Shtetlshlepper Group Leader.

As owner of the KehilaLinks website about Lyubar, I have shared my
experiences as well as information about retrieving documents and about the
history of the Jews of Lyubar, Ukraine where my KARGER and SHINDELMAN family
lived for at least 150 years.

In an extraordinary turn of events, material and photos >from the Lyubar
website < https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Lyubar/ > is being used by a
German-government funded group called "The Protecting Memory Project" to
erect a memorial on two mass gravesites in Lyubar where relatives were
murdered in 1941. I have been invited to speak at the Opening Ceremony in
Lyubar, Ukraine on June 20, 2019.

If interested, you are invited to follow my travel journal on Tripcast which
will contain photos, videos, and notes about my trip back to 'Ukraine in
2019' by signing up at < https://tripcast.co/i/KG3Q3FJE >

(US) New York State Substitutes for the Lost 1890 Census #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society has an article in their
blog about substitutes for the Lost 1890 US census. Their article talks of
three substitutes for the census that was all but destroyed:

1890 Veterans Schedule this schedule survived for New York as well as other
states. It will include the name of the military person, rank, company,
regiment name, date of enlistment and discharge, length of service, post
office address, whether a disability occurred and additional remarks. It is
available on Ancestry.com a subscription service which is also available at
many public libraries and FamilySearch.org.
(https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/1877095)

1890 New York City "Police" Census
In 1890 New York City consisted of Manhattan and western half of Bronx. The
Police Census is called such as the police were the enumerators.
FamilySearch.org released an index that covers the majority of the 1,008
books of which 894 survive today. The surviving books are available on
Family History Library microfilm and can be searched at:
https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/2381996

1892 New York State Census
New York State took its own census every ten years between 1825 and 1925.
They skipped 1895 due to political and bureaucratic problems jumping to the
1892 census. Forty of the state's counties survived. Information including
name, age, gender, race, birthplace ( country), citizenship status and
occupation are all documented >from the census. To search the 1892 Census
see: https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/1529100

Above are the three alternate choices for substituting the census. To read

I have posted what I believe to be a record of the birth of a son to my great
grandparents who lived in Poland. I understand it to be written in Russian and
would be most grateful for an English translation. It can be found on
ViewMate through the following link:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM73554

I would greatly appreciate any help you may be able to give me concerning the place
and date of birth, names of child and parents (there seem to have been a number of
variations of the latter), and ask if you could please respond via the form

(US-NYC- Brooklyn) Brooklyn Public Library Increases Its Borough-Specific Newspapers Available Online #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Brooklyn Public Library, https://www.bklynlibrary.org/, was founded in
1896, and is the nation's sixth largest public library serving over one
million patrons in 59 locations. The library recently announced that 41
different "borough" publications with thousands of old newspaper articles
from 1835-1999 will be available online through the Library's digital
archives. Twenty-one titles are already digitized and the remaining 20
titles will be uploaded soon-six-eight weeks.

Once the digitization is complete the public will be able to access the
clips for free on the host site, Newspapers.com*, but for the first three
years, access will only be at one of the Brooklyn Public Library or one of
its branches. After three years they will be accessible for free anywhere in
the world. For now those wanting to use the collection will have to use
either a designated Brooklyn Public Library computer, or connect their
laptop to the library's WiFi for unrestricted access.

Currently, old issues of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle are online and access is
unrestricted by going to: https://bklyn.newspapers.com/#

To read more and see the list of 41 newspapers that will be available worldwide in
