Sanok ShtetLink Birth Announcement:-) #general

Debbie Raff
 

For those with an interest in the town of Sanok, you might want to check
out my new ShtetLink site at: http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Sanok/

I have no known association with Sanok myself, but do for the nearby town of
Bukowsko. Sanok is a much larger town and I felt it deserved its own
ShtetLink site.

For those of you out there with a link to Sanok, please feel free to contact
me. I would be pleased to include your family information, photos, etc.

Also, I established a "Sanok Yahoo! Group" for those who are researching
Sanok and its environs. This way information can be shared with others and
not end up in the 'black hole of my file system'. This has proved to be
quite helpful for another ShtetLink site that I began almost 2 years ago. I
have uploaded several old town postcards to the "Photo" area, which is on
the left side of the group homepage.

At the moment the "Sanok Yahoo! Group" consists of one member, "me" (grin),
but with this announcement it should become active. You must join to view
the site, but it is free. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Sanok/

I hope you all enjoy this new ShtetLink site and its accompanying online
group. :-)

Swenening Russia #ukraine

Shelly Weiner <shellyjag619@...>
 

Dear all,
I have finally found the Ellis Island arrival records for my
gg-uncle & his family. The last residence is clearly listed as
"Swenening, Russia". I have not been able to find anything on this
town using ShtetlSeeker, Discussion List archives, Google etc.

All the records I have simply say RUSSIA (no city name) when asked
for origin (B/M/D, naturalization records etc). The same for my
gg-gf (his brother). I assume there were more siblings, but I have
yet to find them.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what the name or current
location might be?

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

Naturalization #ukraine

Carolyn Ybarra <ybarra333@...>
 

If the naturalization was before 1923, the wife and children were
naturalized along with the husband. After 1923, women were
naturalized separately.

At one time, women who were already citizens could also LOSE
citizenship by marrying non-citizens...

the question posed to me was did his wife and the children born in

Available Pinkes? #general

Hello Genners,

If any of you have knowledge of towns and villages in Eastern
Europe(primarily Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Serbia and Western Ukraine)
where the Pinkes (i.e. burial registry with all the names and/or plot
locations of the interred) is still available, we at the HFPJC would greatly
appreciate if you could forward that town's name to us. Having the pinkes
considerably eases the process of restoring and identifying the gravestones,
especially for those severely neglected cemeteries, and knowledge beforehand
of the availability of a Pinkes can save us valuable time and effort.

Thanks! Of course, I will continue to keep you updated as to the
progress of the cemetery projects we are involved in.

All the best to you and yours,

Re: naturlization, #ukraine

Children were automatically naturalized (still are, I believe);
spouse wasautomatically naturalized until some date in 1922 or 23,
after which theyhad to go get their own naturalizations. Had to do
with voting -- once the 19th amendment gave women the right to vote
in 1920, wives' naturalizations were suddenly important, so they
stopped the automatic process.
