more FINBERG from Massachusetts/Texas (Elias) #lithuania

MandJMeyers <mandjmeyers@...>
 

My GGGF was Eliyahu/Elyash ben Leib FINBERG who lived in Gelvan near
Vilna in the 1850s.
I'm told that there are/were FINBERG relatives in Massachusetts where my
grandmother and her siblings moved but no one remembers who they were.

I've found one and only one Elias FINBERG in the US census records.
Between the census and googling around, I've found the following:

Simon (born c.1860) and Rosa Miriam (nee Birnbaum) FINBERG emigrated
around 1873. In 1900, they were living in Boston and had 6 children,
Bessie, Elias, Rachel/Ruth, Martha, Chester and Annie. Elias (b.1883
in Boston) went to Boston Latin School and Harvard, became a cotton broker
in Dallas where he married Ophelia Hess TILLMAN and had 2 children,
Francisca Robin and Elias Junior. Per SSDI records, Elias died in 1981
in Ormond Beach, Florida and Elias Junior died in Dallas in 2004. Also,
Chester lived in Chelsea in 1917 when he registered for WWI (worked at
Filene's) and lived in Waban with his wife Anne when he registered for
the WWII draft, (worked for Gilchrist) and died in NY in 1981. Chester
is listed among the 1913 Harvard Alumni.

Simon, Rosa and Chester are found in the 1920 census living in
Brookline, where the name is spelled FEINBERG.

It is possible that Simon was a brother of my GGM Feiga (nee FINBERG)
LANDSMAN and if I can find the burial place for Simon, I will be able
to test that theory (he's not in JOBWR and post-1930 death indices don't
exist online).

If this sounds familiar, please contact me privately at

researching ROSSIN, formerly RESSIN #general

Bea <blspabas@...>
 

Hello JGenners,

Many thanks for all your emails regarding Pesia/Polina, the daughter of one
of two brothers Abel (or Abe) and Gessel (or Hessel) RESSIN sons of Girsh,
who immigrated to the USA >from Chashniki, Vitebsk, Belarus, in
about 1914.

I now know that after arriving in America, this family lived in or near New
York where Abe RESSIN changed his surname to ROSSIN.

On behalf of two very special living residents of Chashniki who are direct
RESSIN relatives, I am looking for any known information about their
long-lost ROSSIN family members in America, in particular direct descendants
and any living relatives.

If any of this sounds familiar please email me.

Many thanks

Finding Translators for Hire #general

Howard Margol
 

I had a recent experience that I would like to pass on to other SIGs, and
research groups.
As the Coordinator for Records Acquisition, for LitvakSIG, it is my main
responsibility to get records in the Lithuanian archives translated into English.
We had four translators working on records at the Kaunas Regional Archive with
lots of records to be translated. For various reasons, the progress was very slow
and it appeared that it would take several years before many of the records would
be translated.

I contacted several individuals in Kaunas I know and requested their help
in finding one or two translators. Unfortunately, they were not able to
help me. I then decided I would have to think "outside the box" if the problem
was going to be solved.

Using the Internet, I found the contact information for Vytautas Magnus
University in Kaunas. In today's world, most University students speak
English, have laptop computers, and are knowledgeable about Excel spreadsheets.
In Lithuania, they can also translate Russian. University students also have
spare time, not in a position to have a full time job, but would welcome a
part time job that could fit into their own schedule.

I sent an email message to the University and asked if they could find me
one or two students who, in their available time, could translate records at
the Kaunas archive. I mentioned they would be paid for their work.

Over a period of several days, I received 20 job applications >from
students complete with their experience and qualifications. One had a PhD,
one had a Masters Degree, one lived in Chicago for eight years, and one lived
in New Jersey for three years. All of them were well qualified. I chose three
of them and, after a brief training period, they are all busy translating
records. The log jam at the Kaunas archive has been broken and progress is
being made.

I pass this on in case other organizations need translators in cities
where there is an archive and also a University. These translators do not do
research but only translate records we instruct them to do. Please do not ask
me to have them do your personal research as they are not equipped to do
that.
