In addition to the bank records in Philadelphia which you can search at the Temple University Library -  Jewish Archives,  you should also check

the Archives of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee at:

https://names.jdc.org
     or    
https://archives.jdc.org/ 

The JDC has a data base of over 500,000 names which includes lists of individuals who are requesting aid.   You can just put in a name and it will search the full data base.
The lists for people requesting aid contain names and addresses, etc. so this web site can be a terrific source if you locate someone.

The JDC database is probably not used as much as it should be.  There are also archives of photographs and other information.

Linda, 
Can you please provide a search strategy for accessing these Remittance Lists online?  Are they found in any particular collection?
Many thanks,

Information about Suri Milgrom #ukraine

Marilyn Feingold
 

I am looking for a distant relative, Suri Milgrom. She was born about 1838 and had a tobacco shop. I have found two of her children, Heike (Ida) and Joseph. However she had two more daughters, Fride and Frimi. One became an attorney and one married a Steinberg. I believe Suri was born in Kishinev. Her husband's name was Sam Elkas.  They divorced and Suri and her children kept her maiden name, Milgrom.  Her ex-husband married again and moved to Odessa. I would like to find her  Fride and Frimi's descendents if possible. I would also love to know who Suri's parents and grandparents and siblings were.  Any suggestions or information will be greatly appreciated.

Re: Female Maiden Name on Headstone #belarus #general #russia #names #translation

I found a family stone in Ukraine from 1911 that is on the website of this organization:  Chesed Shel Emet. 
Mitzmatemet.org.  

I can only translate part of the stone at this point, so I wasn't sure what to do.

Does anyone know anything about this organization?
Has anyone had any dealings with this organization?  They offer to clean the stone, paint the fence, etc  for a charge. 

Thank you,

Re: Chicago repeat marriage in mid 20th C. #general #usa

Lin Mor
 

Hi Hannah, I am sure that no two or more, situations are the same, but sometimes a misunderstanding happens. My maternal grandparents are on record to have received a marriage license in Erie PA in April, 1908. I am quite sure that they had a religious ceremony, possibly a few months before, because Grandma was about 3 months pregnant in April.  Perhaps they though it wise to also have a civil marriage record, but the signed civil/legal paperwork was never returned to City Hall. According to civil law, then, the marriage did not take place.  I attribute it to ignorance as well as perhaps a language barrier as to how it all needed to be done. My suggestion is that you can check to see if a marriage license was issued in 1938, the people in Erie PA found the license issuance easy to find in their records.


Re: Florence MARMOR burial records of the New York Mokkom Sholom, Bayside and Acacia cemeteries #usa

Steve Pickoltz
 

I too have a relative buried at Bayside, but he is not listed in your list.  His death cert number is #20801 with a death date of June 4, 1893. The name is Israel Pikholz, and he was 14 days old. 

 

Any additional info on him or his family would be greatly appreciated.  His death cert is very hard to read.

I actually found the same thing for my g-grandparents. I have their marriage record in Poland, in 1895, immigrated in 1906, he naturalized in 1922, and they got married again in 1927. I'm not clear WHY.

Re: Does anyone know any survivors from Krinki/krinik #poland

gncampbell@...
 

Murray, your Stollman/Sturmach family and mine are related through your grandmother Nechama/Naomi Epstein.  She was my third great Aunt.  The information you posted matches what I've found over the years and I'd love to exchange further information when your fingers allow.  I have your father's generation being 4 females and 5 males so I'm interested in figuring out who I'm missing and about their lives.  Also of course, any photos you might have from Krynki or of our mutual ancestors.  

Someone mentioned upthread a Krynki "group" I'd like to be included in that as well.   

Thank you!

I am not sure that my cousin's situation is the same but: My first
cousin married a non-jewish woman (I think in Nevada). After a while
they were married religiously by a reform Rabbi and eventually (a
third time) by an Orthodox Rabbi. So she joked to me how she was
married to my cousin 3 times.

You don't say which groups you have tried or what exactly you are looking for. There are many different websites out there-Ancestry and My Heritage which are paid websites, JewishGen and Family Search which are free. 
If you will share a little bit more information we probably can help you.

Records? Ancestor moved from Boston to Tel Aviv in 1920s. #israel

Ryan Cramer
 

Oral history in my family indicated that my 2nd great-grandfather (Abraham Kaslick) emigrated from Boston, Massachusetts to Tel Aviv, Israel in the 1920s.  However I cannot find any records to validate this; I would love to find a ship manifest, census records, or even cemetery records from Israel to continue my search.  Abraham was born May 1858 in Odessa, Russia.  I've found USA census records of he and his family for 1900 through 1920 but I'm at a loss from there (Example:  https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M2KN-4TY).  If anyone has any recommendations as to next steps of finding more proof of emigration to Israel, death, etc., it would be much appreciated!

Many thanks for your very helpful remarks.  I have been in touch with them some five years ago, and had a similar experience. Since I could not travel to Arolsen, I was in touch with different assistants, 
did not understand why, was not sure if multiple requests were not seen in a negative light. Is it possible that a visit to Arolsen will enable one to see material in addition to what one may get after filling out 
an inquiry form and getting an answer? Must an appointment be fixed before visiting the facility? 

Kind regards,

Re: Death in New York City and burial in New Jersey #usa #germany

Why my Brooklyn family was buried in New Jersey.   My grandfather belonged to the New York Social Club which had a section in the large Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn probably since the early 1900s.   But by the 1950s the plot was full, so the society bought land in a nearby cemetery in New Jersey, so that is where my grandparent's children , some grandchildren,  and some cousins are buried.

Re: parents as "cousins" on Ancestry.com #dna

Lee Hover
 

I have a first cousin, Arlene,  who married our mutual first cousin. Her parents, Bernard and Esther, were also first cousins. Bernard's parents were also first cousins. And I suspect that one of his parents was also the result of a cousin marriage.  This makes for a very tangled tree, and I often say that the old song "I'm My own Grandpa" was written about my family. Try explaining that your Uncle was also your cousin and so on.  In the case of Arlene, her aunt was also her mother-in-law.   And, no, the family was not orthodox.

In 2010 I was one of several contributors indexing records for JDC. Included were Remittance Lists names.  Today I checked a few names that I know should be there, and they were.

There is a search box on the JDC website.
