LDS Family History Centers #general

Alan D Glick <aglick1@...>
 

I recently went to my local Family History Center to do research on my
Grandfather. As a first step, the personnel asked me to fill out 2 forms:
a "Family Group Record" and a chart, both of which asked me to list my
Grandfather's descendents. Should I be wary of doing so? If I just want to
search city directories and census reports for a specific name, why would
the Center first require me to give them names of other relatives? Is this
their standard operating procedure, or should I again request the microfilms
but request not to have to fill out any forms?

Long Island's miracle maker does it again! #general

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

John Martino, the dynamic Long Island retiree who has conceived and
implemented several massive volunteer indexing projects, is making more
miracles. John reports that his crew is nearing completion of computerized
grooms' indexes to New York City marriages, all boroughs, 1908 to 1936, and
to Manhattan marriages, 1895 to 1897. These indexes are already installed on
computers at the Family History Center in Plainview (160 Washington Ave.,
about .5 mile north of Old Country Road) and at the National
Archives-Northeast Region in Manhattan (201 Varick St., at Houston). John
expects them to be online soon, so plan your research accordingly.

Also in the works:

* NYC death indexes, all boroughs, 1912 to 1919 (completed
but not yet posted) and 1920-1929 (coming soon)
* NYC grooms' index, all boroughs, 1897 to 1907 (in progress)
* Brooklyn grooms' index, 1895-1897 (completed but not yet posted)
* Brooklyn brides' index to 1937 (nearing completion)
* indexes to Eastern District Court (Brooklyn, NY) naturalizations
through 1926 (nearing completion) and 1927 on (just getting started)

Once these projects are completed, John and his associates hope to tackle
New York City births through 1909 and to extend their NYC death index
through 1948.

The indexes already up and running are...

* Nassau County (NY) Naturalizations, 1899-1986
* Suffolk County (NY) Naturalizations, 1853-1990
* Bronx County (NY) Naturalizations, 1914-1952
* Military Naturalizations in the Greater NY Area (WW I & II, Korean War)
* Southern District Court (NY) Naturalizations, 1906-1959
* NYC Death Index, 1891-1911

There is no cost to access these indexes. To use them, go to
www.italiangen.org and click "Databases." For more details on them, search
the JewishGen Discussion Group Archives
http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~archpop
for the name John Martino.

I'm proud to say that the Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island recently
made a substantial donation to help buy a state-of-the-art scanner to speed
things along and to defray other project expenses.

Re: Boston passenger list index, 1848-1891 #general

Any chance the index will be posted on the Net?

The Massachusetts State Archives at Columbia Point in Boston has a new
"Passenger List Index for the Port of Boston, 1848-1891"
The index is in Excel and resides in an on-site computer. There are
103,343 entries. The Excel spreadsheet is more than just an index.
It contains columns for names, age, sex, date, ship, arrive with,
birthplace, citizenship, last residence, occupation, in US before,
destination, health, passenger ship list number, and comments. I believe
a group of volunteers extracted the information >from passenger list
microfilms.

Any 13 year old teachers in your past? #general

ssroth@...
 

In analyzing a letter by my grandfather, he tells that in the old country,
Bar Mitzvah was the time that a person started to make a living. He tells
that at 13 he tutored Jewish girls, teaching them to pray and read and
write. Does anyone else have stories like this? It seems unusual that a 13
year old boy would be hired to teach the girls. Thanks for your thoughts.

Hello,
 
I have subscribed to this website looking for my
roots. I would also like to know if there is any
descendent of my grandmother's family original from
Poltawa (or Poltava) in Ukraine.
 
My maternal grandmother, Gita PERLOWSKA (or Perlovska)
was born in Poltawa (or POltava), Ukraine in 1898. She
had two sisters whose names i don't know but I do know
that one was a medical doctor and the other one was a
lawyer. They also had a brother.
 
My grandmother married my grandfather Elias Mendel KAC
(pronounced KATZ) >from Vilna, who had tried fortune in
Ukraine but decided to go back to Vilna. They had two
daughers: My aunt, Mina (who is 81 years old and lives
in Buenos Aires) and my mother, Hessie (later called
Elsa) who died at 67 in 1991 in Buenos Aires.
 
My grandmother was going to bring her brother to
Buenos Aires where she, her husband and two girls had
immigrated but the Second World War happened and she
lost all track of her family. We always wondered if
someone was left >from that family.
 
My name is Ana Szpaizer and I live in Ottawa, Canada,
now.
 
i can be reached either at this email or at

R'Yitzchak Izak MOSKOVITS - Montreal #rabbinic

Nathan Rosenshein <nrosen@...>
 

I have a good deal of information on the rabbinic families listed
under my signature below, all interconnected. Reb Mordchele
Nadverner is also part of the family (author of Maamar Mordechai).
The region is Carpatte Russ - Carpathian Mountain area, in present
day Ukraine (near Mukacevo/Munkacs).

I am trying to determine how the late Reb Yitzchak Izak MOSKOVITS
of Montreal fits into the family. He is known to be a descendant
of the Bais Yitzchak - Reb Yitzchak Izak WEISS of Svaliava. The
connection is apparently throught the APPELDORFER/APFELDORF/APFELD
family, but I have as yet been unable to trace the particulars.
Any bright ideas?

Thanks,

Nathan Rosenshein,
