Skola - a thank you- ! #general

Stuart Ungar <teamungar@...>
 

Thank you so much for all of the emails and responses to my questions for "Skola."
Indeed it has helped!

It seems I do need to search in the Ukraine and it is in fact "Skole" and some
additional research showed that it was Skola in Yiddish (which would explain whey
my grandmother wrote it that way)! After searching the appropriate database, I did
find my grandmother Lea Grunberg (Greenberg) and and many of her siblings listed.
Her birth date was earlier than we thought... not too much of a surprise since it
was believed that she really didn't know her birth date.

And, indeed I will join that SIG in hopes to find out even more. Again, i am
extremely grateful for all the help.

GENI family tree accuracy #general

Evelyn Filippi
 

I started a tree on Geni. A cousin not knowing asked me to merge with her and I
lost complete control of my info. Other people that she asked to add info were
able to add and not lose control. She offered to take me off and then put me back
on so I would have more control but I figure to many cooks spoil the broth, so I
just left it the way it is.

I started another tree and I will use it just as a back up only. Any mistakes I
have are mine and I can deal with it 3 of my PCs crashed within a month. If I
didn't have backups on dvds I would of lost everything so I am glad I have
another place for my tree

Since it's matter of Bialystok, further on, couldn't your Groduv be Grodno
(especially if your information is a handwritten one) ?

Ginsberg and Belinkie #ukraine

Barbara Jepson
 

Thank you to all who replied to my request for information re: my
grandparents, Sam (Solman) Belinkie and Fannie Ginsberg. I should have
been more specific. I still don't know in which Molgilev Sam was born.
My grandmother was born in Konotop. They both told me it was near Kiev.
I knew both of them well and stayed with them often. My father, their
youngest son, was KIA during WW ll, he was 26, I was 3. I was told not
to ask questions because they would have been too sad. I didn't, and,
now I realize that it was a mistake. I'm trying to find out "Which
Molgilev".

Again, many thanks. I will stay in touch.

Russian Translation Needed - 1868 Suwalki Marriage Supplement Record #general

ewolfson
 

Genners:

I have posted on my website a marriage document >from Suwalki in the Russian
language >from 1868. My knowledge of Russian is basically non-existant, but I went
through all the unindexed marriage supplement records >from this era which exist,
looking for a marriage record of a SMORGONSKI relative hoping that something would
pop out at me (and hoping there would be a corresponding vital record in Polish,
but no such luck).

Can someone tell me if I was lucky enough to find the document for which I was
searching? I believe there is a surname that would start SMO__ (with the Russian
cyrillic CMO) I have a link to the document at my website:
http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/w/o/l/Evan-Wolfson/PHOTO/0031photo.html

Apologies in advance for the large image. I am only interested in a translation if
there is a surname SMORGONSKY.

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

Tdashkin name #general

Victoria Reed <researchtoldot@...>
 

Has anyone come across the name "TDASHKIN"? This name was remembered as "VDASHKIN"
but in the 1930 that is how it is spelled.

I've tried searching the EIDB for variants of Dashkin - to no avail. Joseph and
Julie "Tdashkin" state in that census that they arrived in 1930. Joseph was the
brother of a Helen Rubinstein, who was married to a Louis Rubinstein; they both
emigrated much earlier.

At this point I have no clues as to where this family came >from in Russia.

Thanks!

Payment to South Africa: Int'l Bank Draft #southafrica

Elaine Bush <erbush@...>
 

Hi all,

I live in the US. I have requested naturalization records for my
relative in SA >from the archives and the following was sent to me:

"Copies of the relevant documents will be supplied on receipt of an
International Bank Draft to the value of R25-00 (R0-80 per page),
including postage, drawn on a local South African commercial bank in
favour of the PAWC: Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport.
Payment should be sent to the Head, Western Cape Archives and Records
Service......"

I would greatly appreciate it if someone would let me know how I can
do this. I tried googling, but did not come with with relevant
material. Thanks so much.
