Re: Lithuanian Revision Lists #lithuania

mab@...
 

First, lets clear us some terminology.  By 1907, these lists are referred to as family lists, not revision lists. I too have the issue of people remaining on a family list after they had actually left Lithuania.  I was told by Rhoda Miller, an expert on this subject,  that this is not uncommon.  Unlike a US census, people were just carried over from one list to the next.

Re: Friedmann restaurant in Baden Bei Wien 1900-1915? #austria-czech #hungary

Emma,
The 1910 census is unfortunately not edited, which means that there is no possibility to search for names, for example. You would have to know the exact address to find the inhabitants of a house.
I searched some sources for Izsak Friedmann in Baden near Vienna, but I could not find any indication of a restaurant.

Do you know their native tongue or the region from where they originally came from?


Nazi Concentration Camps Prisoners Made Music: 60 Minutes Episode June 7, 2020 #holocaust

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

 

One of the episodes on the June 7th (US) 60 Minutes program (CBS) was about prisoners in Nazi Concentration Camps making music: The Lost Music.  An Italian composer and pianist researched the music they wrote. The Italian composer, Francesco Lotoro, was not born Jewish but converted to Judaism. He has spent 30 years recovering, performing and in some cases finishing pieces of work composed in captivity.

To watch the 24-minute episode go to:

I don’t know if the link will work outside of North America.

Re: polite, correct word for genealogy purposes? #general

Kenneth Ryesky
 

Folks, if you choose to be judgmental of all your relatives, then your family tree listing and your enemies list will eventually become one and the same document.
 
One of the strongest (and underutilized) arguments in favor of family history research is that empirical evidence strongly suggests that all else being equal, children who know their family history are better postured for success in life than those who are unfamiliar with their family background.
 
 
If my own family is typical (not that there is any such thing as a "typical family"), I have Communist Party apparatchiks and nomenklaturaniks, as well as a founder of the Republican Jewish Coalition and other people who are or were solidly on the righthand side of the political spectrum.
 
There WILL be differing political, social, and religious differences.  If you are as highly outspoken and opinionated as I am, then being nonjudgmental will be a challenge.  Much of my research successes have come through collaboration and note-comparing with people who would be (and have been) my adversaries in other contexts. 
 
When doing personal genealogy, I think of my biases as just another brick wall that needs to be broken through in the research process.

Re: Sharing family tree information #general

Hilary Henkin
 

Maybe --.  My great-grandmother was Hilda (Hinde) Berlin, daughter of Leib Berlin.  She was born about April 1869, and had six siblings, born about 1868-1896.  There was Hirsche, Hilda, Matta, Yahuda, Ruven, Solomon and Welka.  I know about her and Welka (William), but nothing about the rest.

Two of her sons ended up in Toronto, and brought her in 1908.  Willie came over in 1913.  They all moved to Detroit in the late teens, then moved back to Toronto after WWI, then to Los Angeles about 1923. 

Were there cousins in Detroit?  I'd love to find out.

I have more details, didn't want to write a missive at the moment.  If you need more, let me know, or if anything sounds familiar.

Hi Jeffrey,

In my research I have found several people on manifests with lines drawn through their name and info.  It means they did not sail on that ship.  In each case that I have seen, the person sailed a few days to weeks later.

I would propose that the polite and correct thing to do is to use whatever term the couple in question prefers. Ask them (assuming this is possible, of course).

Re: Vetting family tree submissions to genealogy sites for data soundness #general

Carolyn Lea
 

JoAnne,

I do not expect these companies to examine trees and look for improbable situations. That is my job, not theirs. I am the researcher and they are the records providers. As far as online trees go, I would not take anything from an online tree before proving or disproving the information. Can you even imagine the number of employees it would take and how many hours to look for what might be improbable  information? The person who owns the tree is obviously not a serious researcher or is poorly educated in doing this type of research. This gives them 3 additional ancestors instead of one!

Re: Passenger Manifest Question #general

A name that is lined out either (1) was not on board the ship at all or (2) is on another page of the manifest.
I have seen where a family does not get to the ship on time, or a family member is too sick to travel. They can usually be found on another ship a week or maybe more later.
