research for KANNER family #ukraine

JUROVSKY,Catherine <catherine.jurovsky@...>
 

Dear Genners
I am researching the sister of my grand mother FEYGA/FENIA BEZPALOV who married a KANNER. She was born in 1883 in NIKOPOL (oblast Dniepropetrovsk) She probably moved with her parents to ODESSA. At some point (I do not know when) she moved to Israel. She had 3 daughters. If one can give me information or how to proceed to start a research in Israel I would be very grateful.
Best regards
Catherine JUROVSKY

Jewish Families From Aden in Port Said #general

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners,

I am writing an article about the Jewish community in Port Said which short lived
there between 1859-1956. 75% of its members were Jews >from Aden. All of them held
British nationality and most of them moved through the years to the UK and further
(USA, Australia). If you know of such families I would like to have their surnames.


Please respond privately.

Inclusion of Stillbirths & Adopted Infants in NYC Birth Index? #general

Deborah Dworski
 

Online access to the 1957 NYC birth index has yielded the discovery of a surprise
baby who clearly belongs on my family tree due to the unusual surname. She is only
listed as "baby girl." Pondering possible explanations of this finding has led to
more general questions about the database. First, did the NYC birth index include
stillbirths or were stillbirths assigned to the City death index? Were adopted
infants expunged >from the birth index? If adopted infants were included, were they
listed according to the biological mother's surname, the biological father's
surname (if known) or the surname of the adopting family?

Please respond privately. Thank you.

JewishGen 2018 Genealogy Courseware #warsaw #poland

Phyllis Kramer
 

2018 brings a variety of JewishGen classes to meet the research
challenges both for newcomers and those who wish to enhance their
skills. We specialize in interactive, three to four week genealogy
courses, featuring a personal mentoring program tailored to your
research projects. Classes are offered in a private online FORUM open
24/7 to accommodate international students. Students post an ancestral
branch, set goals for their research, and work one on one with the
instructor.

Organize Your Data and Research Online focuses on your immigrant
ancestors in the United States. Six online text lessons begin with
organization and search techniques, and continue with census, vital
records and Ellis Island manifests. (Jan 5th)

The Intermediate Course, Complex Genealogical Research is for students
who, despite basic online research, have not yet found the Hebrew
names, approximate birth year or former European town for the
immigrant; it covers more complex U.S. topics such as naturalization,
death records, military and governmental records, and local archival
research (next class begins April 6th). This class is also taught in
the summer with an emphasis and field trip in New York City

Independent Study. This class offers students a chance to work on any
genealogical project within the expertise of the instructor. The
course may include United States research or the country of immigrant
origin for one branch, one surname studies, or holocaust information
searches. Your topic, your schedule, your questions. Details are on
the Education Page. (Feb 9th)

Courses will open for enrollment 3 weeks before the starting date.
Tuition varies. *Please* read the course descriptions and requirements
on www.jewishgen.org/education and/or contact the instructor.

Finally, our text and exercise based 2 week classes are offered at no
charge to Value Added members of JewishGen. Our first offering in 2018
will be Basic 2 - Search Strategies Using Google, beginning January
29th.
