New Kherson town and gubernia KheilaLinks website is requesting information. #ukraine

Charles WALOWITZ
 

We are in the process of creating a JewishGen KehilaLinks website for the town and gubernia of Kherson, Ukraine.

We would like people who have roots there to submit material for the website. You can submit photos of the town, photos of people born in the town, postcards,and family histories. Also very helpful would be a descriptive narrative mentioning all the generations, who married whom, what they did for a living, where they lived, their migration, documents you may have received >from Kherson, etc. We would be grateful if you will help us "populate" our new website with materials about our ancestral town.

If you can help with this, or if you have any other ideas, please write to us directly at ruthw95@....

Re: Early London Insurance Policies #unitedkingdom

louisemessik@...
 

The insurance companies were London-based, but the assets insured could be
anywhere in the UK.

We have learned that Sun Insurance policies on provincial properties have
the prefix CD ('country districts'), we can filter the policy numbers column
to get a fix on them. 2673 out of 25670 entries, ie well over 10 per cent,
relate to provincial policies. (And that's not even looking to see if any of
the other insurers covered 'country districts' - they probably did.)

Ref arsonists: many of the policies contained a Jews Clause. Please see
George Rigal's explanation below.

from 1813 some policies taken out by Jews had a special Jews clause, which
appeared more frequently as time went on. It appears as the words 'Jews
Clause' at the end of the policy or it is given in full, being some
variation of 'No goods paid for which are stolen or lost by removal at or in
consequence of a fire or alarm of fire'.

I do hope that this information is helpful.

With thanks to Petra Laidlaw for providing the answers to Jill's posting.

Subject: Early London Insurance Policies
From: jill.whitehead@...

Could the compilers of the George Rigal data indicate if this information
literally only relates to families living in London? As London was the
capital city, is it possible that families who lived in other UK cities
could have taken out an insurance policy via a company based in London?

If this is only London based, are there other sources of information for
provincial insurance policies? In my case, I am interested in Edinburgh,
Liverpool, Manchester, Southport, Hull, Grimsby, Sheffield, Middlesbrough,
and Harrogate.

I have a contact in Chicago who has discovered that his turn- of- the- 20th
century ancestor was a Jewish arsonist in Boston who tried to make money
from insurance policies. He had an article published in Avoytanu in 2013 on
this topic. This sounds more of an American than UK thing but I am informed
that his family's research showed that some Jewish arsonists did operate in
London at the time.

Middle name Baraf? #general

Snillop47@...
 

I am interested in the possible meaning of a Jewish middle name. The story
starts with a man born in a town in the Ottoman Empire in the 1860s whose
middle name was Baraf. He came to England and his first son was born in
1892 and his middle name was also Baraf but none of his other children were
given that name.
Newspaper reports of the family sometimes print it as B'Araf and Be'Haraf.

I can't find anything like it in my Hebrew-English Dictionary, nor in my
Yiddish-English Dictionary.

Any help?

Trying to locate Robert W. Marlin #general

Natalie & Ernie Hartz
 

I have been unable to locate the author of "My Sixteen-a self help guide to
finding your 16 great grandparents", Robert W. Marlin.

He is related to me through our grandmothers and we had been in contact in
the 1990's. He was a professional genealogist who was kind enough to send me
his book, in which he shows documents related to my paternal grandparents.
He also sent me a copy of a photograph of his grandmother and her niece,
Rose Resnick (my grandmother).

I have recently come across 9in my now deceased uncle's possessions), a
dozen studio portraits of many unnamed individuals (which are >from my
paternal side of the family) and one of them matches the copy of the
photo Robert sent me. They appear to be >from the approximate time frame
of the 1900's. I had hoped that Robert might have similar photos that
would help identify the people.

have searched Switchboard and White Pages for him and have found someone
whose previous addresses match to the ones I knew, but when I call the
number, the phone has been disconnected, so I fear he may be deceased.
His bio on the book states that he had served at one time on the Board of
Directors of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando.

If anyone has any knowledge of Robert (or any of his immediate family
members) please contact me off list. If you can offer general information on
locating people that would benefit the group, and/or how to identify people
from these old studio portraits, please feel free to post to the group as
well.

[US] Department of Defense to Preserve Historic Images #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Department of Defense's central repository for imagery, the Defense
Imagery Management Operations Center [DIMOC] recently signed a $5 million
agreement to digitize, store and provide access to hundreds of thousands of
historical images. In addition to its digital archive, the agency has a
massive backlog of images on physical, analog media that ranges from
photographic negatives and slides to films and VHS tapes which are
deteriorating faster than they can offer it to the National Archives. They
also have the problem that their climate-controlled facility in Riverside
California is running out of space. Regardless of condition, images sent to
Riverside are never simply destroyed, because they're federal records.
Everything is assessed, barcoded and stored for later digitization.

Originally, it was determined that it would take 25 years and $50 million to
digitize the current analog holdings with available government resources.
Instead they are taking a different approach that will take only 5 years. In
exchange for digitizing the images, the contractor, T3Media, will be granted
a limited period of exclusivity during which they will be able to charge
non-DOD users a fair-market fee to use the images. This is similar to
agreements that the National Archives has made with genealogical
organizations to digitize some of their holdings.
