Re: Why would my Grandfather travel under his older brother's name? #names

Steven Usdansky
 

My 24-year old grandmother came to the US at age from what was then Russia in 1914 using the passport of her 19-year old sister. Her ship sailed from Rotterdam on the day Russia entered WWI. It was an age thing, but I never understood why a 24-year old might not be admitted to the US but a 19-year old would, especially since there were other family members in the US already. When my grandmother's sister eventually came to the US with her four children in 1933, it was under her married name and with a Polish passport.

Re: Does anyone know where Nishene Russia is? #poland #russia

Eric Mack
 

Another possibility for Nishene, Russia is Knyszyn, which is 26 km NW of Bialystok, Poland.  The "sz" in Polish is pronounced like "sh" in English.

From DNA to Genetic Genealogy: 

Everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask.

Wednesday, July 15, 2020

3:00 pm Eastern Time (New York)


The study of genetics that started with Gregor Mendel's pea experiments in 1865 has now entered the genealogy field with Megan Smolenyak's coining of the term "genetealogy" in 2000. To understand the genealogical aspects requires an understanding of some of the basic concepts. 


This talk introduces genes, chromosomes, and DNA, and goes on to show how DNA is inherited. That knowledge of inheritance can be used for finding relatives you didn't know you had, learning about your very distant ancestors and the route they traveled, and determining if you are a Jewish high priest (Kohan). 


Examples presented include Genghis Khan’s legacy, the Thomas Jefferson affair, and the Anastasia mystery.


Stephen P. Morse is the creator of the award-winning One-Step Website https://stevemorse.org/; Recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies and the Award of Merit from the National Genealogical Society; Best known as the architect of the Intel 8086, which sparked the PC revolution 35 years ago.

Try the Jewishgen Poland Database   https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Poland/ 
If you search under Any field and type in 1101, you will get results for several Warszawa Home Owner lists.  In 1869 and 1870 it was listed as Grzybowski 16 but in 1864 which is closer to the year you are looking for it is listed as Twarda 8   
In 1864 the property was owned by Hersz GOLDBERG.

The indexing of the Warszawa Homeowners list is a project of Jewishgen's Warszawa Research Group.  More informatin on this project can be found at

Forced Laborers From Central and Eastern Europe For Nazi Germany Online Database #germany #holocaust #russia #announcements

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

Over 320,000 people from central and eastern Europe  were taken as forced laborers (Ostarbeiters) for Germany.  This database has been put online by a Russian international historical and civil rights society.  See: https://ost-west.memo.ru/ It is available in Russian and English. The Memorial has posted a list of Ostarbeiters who were taken from or forced to work in these countries: Russia, current day Republic of Crimea, Poland, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Lithuania, France, Norway, Slovakia, Estonia, Latvia, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland. The list comes from the State Archive of the Russian Federation Fund  (Fond?) -7021 “Extraordinary State Commission for the Establishment and Investigation of the Crimes of the Nazi Invaders”.

 

This is not an “easy” database to use.  Vera Miller of the Find Lost Russian and Ukrainian Family  has information on how to best search this including a link to a video with English subtitles to use the database. The link for the video is available at:

https://ost-west.memo.ru/about  You may need to switch from the Russian to English on the upper right side.  Using a translation guide such as Google translate  https://translate.google.com/  or  DeepL  https://www.deepl.com/translator  will be necessary unless you are fluent in Russian. When looking for your ancestors names, Steve Morse’s website is helpful https://stevemorse.org/russian/eng2rus.html  Write in the name you are researching to get the Russian name.

 

You can search by countries, regions and job type.  It will be helpful for users to know the region, district and town/village where their relatives and ancestors were taken from or had been forced to work.

 

Another website the Memorial created is:  https://fond21.memo.ru/ for documents and personal photos of the Ostarbeiters. This website provides information on 170,000 people.

 

I would recommend reading the article before trying any translations:

Re: Why would my Grandfather travel under his older brother's name? #names

adrien@...
 

Hi,
Found that a brother of my great grandmother did that to travel to US, borrowing his older brother identity.
Reason was, the traveler was too young and switching identities allowed him to live is life freely.
The older brother stayed in France and lived under his younger brother identity until he passed away many years after.
