Benjamin Kesselmann Help re: Cherbourg #france

jsullins@...
 

My great-great uncle sailed >from Cherbourg and was rejected at Ellis Island
in June, 1914. He was returned to Cherbourg and disappeared. I know that
he was born about 1877 in Narodichi, Ukraine, was physically handicapped,
listed as married but was travelling alone, inquiry states he left wife &
two children in Russia, was a tailor, said last permanent residence before
Paris was Kiev, and gave his last known address with his brother in Paris.
The brother and family emigrated to the U.S. the following year.

I have found nothing in the U.S. after 1914. He was going to his cousin in
Chicago but there is nothing there. This was the beginning of WWI so I
don't know how mobile people were in July, 1914.

I would like some suggestions as to where someone might go after being
deported at that time and how to search French records. Would he stay in
Cherbourg, go back to Paris or a neighboring country, would he be able to go
back to Kiev where his wife and children were, etc.? Would this be like
looking for a needle in a haystack?

Thanks to Nolan Altman on The Wall of Honor #germany

JewishGen German Research Division Coordinator
 

On behalf of GerSIG, but also reflecting the thoughts of scores of my
colleagues in other segments of the Jewish Genealogy community,
I've added a message of thanks to Nolan Altman to
The JewishGen Wall of Honor.

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/Honors0.html

Just last week, we learned that information >from thousands of grave
inscriptions in Berlin had been added to the searchable data at
JewishGen via JOBWR.

Under Nolan's leadership, it became significantly easier and much more
enjoyable for volunteers to digest collected records and submit them
for addition to JOWBR and other JewishGen databases.

His contributions to our field have been enormous. We all owe thanks
to Nolan Altman.

Boston Birds of a Feather (BoF) meeting opportunity #yiddish

dorsharris@...
 

Dear Members -
Registration is now open for the 33rd IAJGS International Conference
on Jewish Genealogy scheduled for August 4-9, 2013 at the Boston Park
Plaza Hotel.

We have an opportunity to schedule a Birds of a Feather (BoF)
get-together if there is enough interest by the YT&V membership. It
allows an opportunity to meet others interested in all aspects of
Yiddish entertainment and provides some limited time to exchange
stories and ask questions.

However, there have been very few postings to the YT&V in the past year
and if there is only a limited interest in a BoF meeting it could be delayed
for a future conference. Your opinions are requested.

Unless there is some reason to post to the entire YT&V membership,
please address any comments or suggestions directly to the moderator
at <davenasa@Gmail.com>

Thank you.
David Harris

researching ZEIDEN / SEIDEN from Krakow #galicia

Peter Kiernan <petervkiernan@...>
 

I am seeking information related to Moshe (Moses) Zeiden/Seiden who was
born in 1846 and I believe lived in Krakow until he left with his wife (first
name Shudmak, b.1848) in 1882 to go to the UK, and then to Australia in
1885. I am trying to find out if they left any relatives behind in Krakow or
thereabouts at the time. If anyone would have any tips on how to research
this, such as finding out who their parents were and if they had any
brothers or sisters, I would like to be in touch. Also, if anyone on the list
knows something about the name Zeiden/Seiden >from the Galician area I
would also like to find out more if possible.

BOF meetings and participating in SIG/BOF Fair #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear Bessarabers,

33rd International Conference in Boston (www.iajgs2013.org) provides great
opportunities for groups of individuals who researching the same areas. It
might be a group researching a particular town or uezd (district). I know
that in our Bessarabia SIG there are many members researching and interested
in towns like Belts, Soroka, Akkerman, Khotin, Brichany, etc. If you want
to have a meeting discussing research for that town or district, to share
information, recruit new members, you just need to submit an application
for the BOF meeting. Your group will have a meeting for 1 hour 15 minutes,
it will be included in the conference program, and you can also participate
in SIG-BOF Fair. All this information is available at the conference
website: www.iajgs2013.org .

I know that there is a strong research community for town of Soroki as well
as surrounding areas (www.soroki.com ). If you are planning to participate
in the conference this your chance. Another group Sokiryany-Jewish-Roots
group is considering to participate. Where are many people with
connections to Ataki, Akkerman, and many more.

Such groups will need to have a leader(s) to prepare such meeting. If you
have questions, please let me know.
If you are interested in such "town"/"district" groups gathering, please
reply to this message to the whole group.

All the best,
