Russian Consular Records #general

Selma Neubauer <sweethawk2@...>
 

Does anyone out there remember the Russian Consular Records? If you're a
newbie, you probably never heard of RCR. Hope you're coming to the
Conference in Philadelphia beginning on August 2 - there's an easier
way to use the records.

In May 2009 I undertook a project at the National Archives,
Mid-Atlantic Branch (NARA), Philadelphia, PA in honor of JGSGP
hosting the 2009 Conference. With NARA's permission and the help of
their interns, I copied the Idex to the Russian Consular Records (RCR)
from the microfilm. The 800 page index represents all of the records
at all of the repositories, Philadelphia being one.

With the help of seven JGSGP volunteers, only the Philadelphia records
were highlighted and color-coded. The 800 pages are now in eight
3-ring binders with instructions on how to use the index and the
records.

One of the difficulties in using the RCR is working out the
Daitch-Mokotoff soundex code. About halfway through the highlighting,
one of the volunteers reminded me that Steve Morse has soundex codes on
his "One-Step" page. Researching the RCR in Philadelphia is now much
easier. If all goes well, the binders will be at the upcoming Conference,
at the NARA table/booth on Sunday August 2 at the Repository Fair, and
NARA will permit the binders to remain in the Research Room during
the Conference.

Hope to see you all at the Conference!

In my family, there was a 'Harris" whose Hebrew name was

Info about Kabaki village #belarus

Harvey Kabaker
 

I am looking for information about Kabaki village, Kosov district,
Stanislav province, Poland [today in Belarus]. My surname literally
stands for a person who came >from Kabaki.

I found a 2002 interview with Amalia Laufer, then living in Ukraine and
a native of Kabaki, here:
http://www.centropa.org/index.php?nID=54&bioID=197
She was born around 1915. She says Kabaki was a Ukrainian village. She
also mentions a nearby village, Kuty, which was predominantly Jewish.

I am interested in the period of the 19th century because, if my
ancestors really originated in Kabaki, they had migrated to Seirijai in
the Suwalki area of today's Lithuania by the 1850s or earlier.

Thank for any info.

BTW, I'll be attending Philly2009 next month.

Thank you JewishGen!

A fellow Genner found the book my GGGF published on hebrewbook.com
and emailed me a link to it! On the one hand, it unfortunately did
not have any genealogical information in it but at least I finally
saw the book!

Meaning of AGAD Birth Record Entry #general

Alan Weiser <alanboy@...>
 

What does entry Goldstein/Weiss mean?

In the JRI-PL AGAD birth indexes I find listings such as
Goldstein/Weiss. I know there are special meanings when names are
separated by an f, r or v; such as, Fine r Gold. What does it mean
when there are no intervening letters? I find this mostly under
Maiden Name of the birth mother in the birth indexes.

Searching KINSTLER #general

mmkinstler@...
 

My ancestor appears in the 1870 U.S. census (New York City) as
"Bacharino Kinstler" >from Poland, married to Lena Kinstler >from
Bavaria. Then in 1880 U.S. census, he appears as "William Kinstler"
>from Poland, married to the same Lena with the same children as in
1870. I would like to trace the family back to Poland, but can not
find either a Bacharino or a William Kinstler, born 1831 anywhere in
the Polish records. Any ideas?

Franz Deak Society at Mount Hebron Cemetery (NY) #general

Lois Levick
 

Dear Genners -

Are there some genners who have relatives buried in the Franz Deak Society
section of Mount Hebron Cemetery in Flushing, New York? I am interested in
finding out if there is some geographical relationship among those residing
there. I know it is a Hungarian society but do not know if it is related to
a particular town. I've already sent for its incorporation papers, which do
not reveal anything. By the way, the Franz Deak Society eventually changed
its name to the Fraternal Society of 1879, Inc., so if you go onto the Mount
Hebron website that is the name it would be listed under. If you actually
go to the cemetery, the gate still has the original name.

I am asking this question because I cannot find any information about my
grandfather and am hoping that if there are several people whose ancestors
came >from a certain area of Hungary that may narrow my search.

Looking for descendants of Harris LEVY and Marion LEVY of NY #general

Rica Goldberg
 

Dear Genners

I am looking for present-day descendants of Marion LEVY born approx 1871
and her brother Harris LEVY born approx 1875, both born in New York.

They are two of the 9 children of Newman and Elizabeth (Betsy) LEVY.
Newman and Betsy had four children born in London and then emigrated to NY in
1867 where 5 more children were born and I have been able to research and
find the family trees of 7 of their 9 children with the exception of Marion
and Harris.

One of their sons was Abraham who became a famous NY lawyer. His first
big criminal case was in 1890 when he defended "Frenchy the Algerian" who had
killed a woman of the underworld called "Mother Shakespeare".

Any help in finding the two families of Marion and Harris would be greatly
appreciated.
