I would like to warmly thank the people who have replied to my request.
Thanks to you, my search for the FABIAN family has moved a step further.

Kind Regards

MODERATOR NOTE: One excellent and meaningful way for any of us to
thank JewishGen members for their help, and assure JewishGen's
continued ability to help others in the future is to make a donation
to JewishGenerosity.

Donations can be made in honor of a special person, in memory of
someone, to commemorate an event, or just because! Visit
http://www.jewishgen.org/ and choose "donate" in the upper right.
No amount is too small to make a difference!

Szumsk, Ukraine or Poland? #general

Saskia Greenhaus <grobanite3388@...>
 

Hello genners,

I found a passenger list of Joseph WHITE, and it lists "Szumks" as his
location of origin. I assume this is a misspelling of "Szumsk", but
even then I am wondering if this means Shumsk, Ukraine, or Szumsk,
Poland. The year of travel is 1905, the departure city was Hamburg and
arrival city was New York.

Thank you,

Shaina Greenhaus, New Jersey

Paul Lieberman suggested visiting "the archives on Varick Street in
Manhattan." The National Archives facility in Manhattan moved to One
Bowling Green, 3rd Floor. They are no longer on Varick Street.

New Content and Graphics for JRI-Poland 20th Anniversary! #general

Bryan Langer
 

As Design Coordinator for JRI-Poland I am happy to share with you
the exciting updates that our web team has made to jri-poland.org.

We have unveiled a new logo commemorating our 20th Anniversary
with a redesigned homepage that features our new "Steps for Success"
links to highlight important reading and "Did You Know" to share
important news.

We have completely revamped our "Introduction" and have added more
in depth detail to "How to Search our Database". Our "Search Database"
page has received a facelift with new help links to make your search
as easy as possible.

We will continue to improve the usability and overall experience of
jri-poland.org in the coming months. Look for new research guides,
an updated look at how the database is built and clearer functionality
from our "Support" page.
I hope that you will take the time to view the changes at
jri-poland.org for yourself and see the new ways we are focusing on
making your family research in 2015 a success!

Finally, I would like to give a shout out to my colleagues on the
JRI-Poland web team, Web Developer Meira Puterman and Technical
Coordinator Howard Fink for their invaluable contribution and many
hours of work to make this possible.

All the Best!

Surazh Vitebsk Memoirs #belarus

David L Davies <rhode.bud@...>
 

I have lately acquired the 110 page memoirs of the late Joseph Matusow of
Surazh (Vitebsk Guberniya NOT Urkraine
http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/shtetls/shtetl_detail.php?filename=ssurazhv
v )
and Philadelphia. Roughly half the document details Jewish life in Surazh at
the turn of the last century, while the second half is about the Matusow
family in Philadelphia after emigration. Joseph's descendant has given me
permission to share with Jewishgen, but without a Surazh KehilaLinks page,
I'm not sure of the best way to do that. (I'm working up to embarking on the
three month project to create a homepage for another Belarus town and
wouldn't do justice to Surazh by attempting another.) Obviously, I can send
it to any Surazh or Matusow researchers who see this posting. Other
suggestions?
