Re: Origin of the name BIALYI #names #belarus

Bialys and bagels were a part of the Sunday morning ritual along with smoked white fish, carp and various salads.  This was in New Jersey and we knew
them as Bialys.  The best bialys and bagels were from NY/NJ hands down.  There was a time the delis took orders and delivered these right to your home.
That would sure be nice during our current social distancing.

Re: Records of Home of Old Israel, New York City and 1930 US Census search possible by address? #courland #usa

My great great grandfather was living in The Home of Old Israel, 70 Jefferson Street, New York City, in the late 30’s and the 1940’s (until his death).
The records went somewhere, as the place moved / merged with another home in another part of NYC or L.I. (I can’t recall where).
 
Regardless, I found him living there, as expected, as a resident there in the 1940’s Federal Census.
S.D is. 11 or 12, ED (enumeration district) is written as 31 - 23.
 
Hope this helps,

Thanks Mark.  I was born and grew up in Queens New York.  We had an excellent bakery about three long blocks or so from our house.  Sometimes on Sunday mornings we would walk with our father to the bakery
to buy fresh Bialys for breakfast.  The onions in the center were the best part.  Delicious!

In the Bialystok area, there are many people with surname of Bialostocki (and similar spellings). I would assume that the surname Bialy is a shortening of the Bialostocki surname. 

As for Bialy's. They are definitely not bagels. They were a staple of my and your Bialystok ancestors lives. As Glenda says, the full name of these "rolls" was Bialystoker Kuchen. In the US these days Bialys are sold in many places, but the only ones that look and taste like the originals are at Kossar's Bialys in New York's Lower East Side and other bakeries in New York City. For more about this Bialystok delicacy, read Mimi Sheraton's book "The Bialy Eaters."

BTW, there is one restaurant in Bialystok that sells Bialy's, but they are small rolls with some poppy seeds on top -- tasty, but definitely no comparison to real Bialys.

Re: Recommendations for scanning photos #photographs

I have been very successful with the PhotoScan app by Google Photos on my phone. It allows you to correct the positioning of the photo before you save it so that it appears as if you scanned it on a flatbed. I was able to do about 200 photos individually in about 3 hours. The quality is very good. The app is free for Android phones.

Hello דן, Dahn, Dani.... or (on U.S. documents) Dan, or Daniel,

As you noticed, we don't use the Hebrew alphabet in the U.S. 

As for the rest...
  • Your parents decided how to write your name on your U.S. certificate, not U.S. immigration officials or any other U.S. government officials
  • You have decided which name(s) you want to use in English (apparently Dahn and Dani), not U.S. immigration officials or any other U.S. government officials

This issue is not a name change issue, but a pronunciation / transliteration issue. 

In peace,
Carol Chaykin

There is a way to search the 1930 census by address for large cities.
The Stephen Morse One-Step WebPages:    https://stevemorse.org/
has a way to identify the enumeration district for a given street address.
https://stevemorse.org/census/unified.html
This usually gives you one, two, maybe three sets of census pages to sort through until you find the street and house number. 
I have used it several times.

Re: Recommendations for scanning photos #photographs

Hi Loren,

How many photos do you need to scan?  I am using an Epson V750-Pro - which is a high resolution flatbed scanner, There is a newer model - the V-850 Pro - which sells for $1125.00 on Amazon. The difference between the two models is not sufficient to spend $625 to $725 more when you can you can pick up an Epson V750 Pro on eBay for $400 to $500, which is what I did.  Excellent scanner - which can also scan slides & negatives. And when you are through using the scanner, you can put it back up for sale on eBay and recoup most of your money.

I am a photographer and I have a lot of use for a scanner, but you might not. I don't know if you have enough photos to make it worth getting a scanner and spending the time scanning them yourself versus having your photos professionally scanned by a lab that is using a high end drum scanner.  You would have to research how much they charge per scan. If you only have 15 or 20 pictures - it may not be worth the effort of buying a scanner.

Hope that is helpful.

Regards,
Juliet Kaye

It's one more version of Belarus.  Russia, what was occupied by Mongols, called Black Russia, Belarus was not occupied, and called White Russia, or Belarus.

Thanks again.
I photographed the JRI page with both Adolf Tarnowers but I can't find their son Aleksander's birth in 1915 at Orla Str., Warsaw or their daughter's birth in 1921 on the JRI site.
Why?

Re: "His name was changed at Ellis Island" #names

Dahn Cukier
 

My name was changed by the US.

I was born in Israel, 1950. My birth certificate does not have
any information in English, not even my name.

8 months later, my parents took out a US Certificate of Birth,
as US citizens, this confirmed my US status.

The name on the US certificate does not have any Hebrew. My parents
put down the name as translated in the Bible, and my father's family
name as it was while he grew up in NYC.

The name my parents put down was also used when registering me for
school, where I had endless problem in public school. Dan is not
Daniel and דן is not Donald. Had I stayed in the US, I would have
probably changed my name or the spelling. So far I have yet
to find how to spell my name in NYC English so it sounds close to
my given name - my name was given me in Hebrew.

Re: Research individuals in France #france

Did you receive the document I sent you? I am a bit puzzled by Adolf Tarnower's business activities! He was trained as an engineer in France and his wife, Sura/Sara/Alice Rozembee/Rozenberg was probably French (?). So how does someone involved in Construction start dealing in clothes? Was that his wife's business? I am attaching a document from Warsaw that shows him in a business relationship with other people. Where did you find the details of Adolf's daughter?


Does anyone have a premium account in gw.geneanet for a one time only search? #france

I need to search the quite common surname DUFOUR in France and the only way to identify this person is by adding the wife´s name..
 
This requires a premium account I do not have and I do not think I will ever need again.
 
Gerard or Geraud Dufour born ab. 1830  married to Eveline (also named Jeanne in another document) Dufour born ab. 1840. 
 
Paul Dufour was his elder brother, born about 1828. 
 
The three of them were established in Buenos Aires according to the national census of 1869.
 
My main interest is to know from which city, ville or region of France they originated.
 
Thanks in advance..

Hi from Connecticut,

Thank you so much for this information. I was able to connect Kalma's descendants in France to the rest of the Beserglik clan in Poland (and all over the world), as Carol married to Liba from my original search request was the Kalma from the naturalization records and was already on my Beserglik family tree with the same date of birth. You were also able to give closure to Michnel's date of death for all the family trees that contained this person but only had his death date as "between 1939-1945".

It was so generous of you to provide this information and give your time to this search.
With much thanks,
Debbie Shindell
