Can anyone suggest books and/or articles on Jewish history for Great Britain, Europe and Eastern Europe? I'm looking for both general histories and histories specific to a town or topic such as migration patterns. I'm especially interested in Odessa.
 
Thank you so much!

STOUBTSY MEMORIAL BOOK (Stolpce/Stoibtz/Steibtz) #belarus

Janis and Joe Datz
 

I am a coordinator for the Yizkor Book translation of the STOUBTSY MEMORIAL BOOK. We are in the process to accomplish a full translation of this treasured book and would be delighted if we could find interested descendants who may have photographs and stories of your ancestors so that we may include them in our final published book (with your permission) once all translations are completed.    We would very much enjoy hearing from you.

In NYC the cause of death is listed on the death certificate usually in some detail. In the case of my great great grandmother who was hit by a car on the Grand Concourse, the death certificate was clear as to the fatal injury.
In another case of a great great aunt her death from pneumonia was listed as the result of  long term complications from a flu epidemic  in an epidemic after the Spanish flu. A great great grandfather of mine died according to his death certificate died of exhaustion caused by malnutrition. It also indicates that the doctor who signed the certificate saw him twice within a week of his death. 
 
The best thing to do is order a copy of the death certificate.

My paternal grandparents are from Poland/Galicia.  I like both applesauce and sour cream on my latkes.  That just makes me greedy.

Have you been creative in your searches
on all databases in jewishgen.org with different surnames like Markus, Markovsky
Mardonsky, Markunsky, Etc. Etc.

You may get lucky also with the passenger manifests using the search engine at stevemorse.org

Good luck.

Subject: [JewishGen.org] Seeking Immigration Record for Lazarus and Leah MARKS between 1866 and 1868 #usa #records

I am looking for the arrival records for Lesser (Lazarus) MARKS and his wife Leah Kreinzohn Marks. They also brought with them their daughters Rose and Dora. They were living in Manhattan in 1868 in September when my mother's paternal grandfather Harris MARKS was born. The youngest daughter was born in the old country in 1866. I have been looking for 34 years. I have tried FamilySearch, Ancestry.com, MyHeritage, Steve Morse One Step Page. I have never found anything nor do I know where they came from. I have never found a naturalization record either. Lazarus and his son Harris were Furriers in Manhattan.

It could be Jurbarkas (Yurberg in Yiddish)? It is in Lithuania, and rec ords of Jews in that town can be searched on the ALD All Lithuania Database

Latvia Database / Christine Usdin Clarification #latvia #records

Marion Werle
 

The Latvia database's Christine Usdin vital records collection is based entirely on the translations of the late Christine Usdin. There is no need to access Christine's original webpages, which contain the same data.. The ONLY thing that has changed is that the links in our database to the original Russian records on the Latvian Archives website, known as "Raduraksti," no longer work, due to a complete redesign/replacement of the website. There are NO links on Christine's old website.
 
FamilySearch has since filmed these records. We will be working to correct the database links in the near future, pointing to FamilySearch, whose links are more stable. In the meantime, we will be posting the slides presented at the Latvia Research Division meeting last week, which describe a workaround for finding the original vital records. The workaround will also apply to the 1897 census records from the All Russian Census Latvia database, not all of which have yet been filmed by FamilySearch. #Latvia #records

Barry,

I would still recommend that you contact the Jewish Historical Society of England's branch in Liverpool.  They should be able to point you in the right direction.  This is available for free through the JCR-UK database but is slightly earlier than what you're looking for. 
https://www.jewishgen.org/jcr-uk/Community/Liverpool/articles/Liverpool_History_1877.htm
This was written by Melvyn Goodman - https://archive.jpr.org.uk/download?id=2273.  I'm sure he was a past president of the JHSE of Liverpool.

Kind regards

The one in the Ukraine seems just in the right area because my Grandfather's sister wrote she was from Bucovina which is in that area. Thanks so much!!! I searched the databases in Jewishgen but maybe I forgot to switch to the search by Soundex. I really appreciate it!!


Re: Does anyone know this town? #records

Deborah Blankenberg
 

Looks to me like Yurbrek, Russia. I searched for that in the JewishGen Communities Database using "sounds like" matching and came up with only one result: Jurbarkas, Lithuania ( modern name), which was Jurbarkas, Russian Empire when she was born. Other names listed for this town are Jurbarkas [Lith], Yurburg [Yid, Rus], Georgenburg [Ger], Jurbarka [Latv], Jurbork [Pol], Jurgenburg, Jurborg, Jurburg, Yorburg, Yorvorig, Yurbarkas. Note that all those initial J's would be pronounced in English as Y.

Re: How do I access the actual image at the Lithuanian historical archive #lithuania

peggyfreedman@...
 

The Vilnius State Historical Archives participated in the Archives Portal Europe project.  I thought that they had put some documents online, but when I checked before responding, I only found catalogue information, I could not find digitized documents. Carol Hoffman's information is more current than my information.

The Archives Portal Europe project is vast, and requires working in a variety of languages.  If someone else finds
links to actual documents, I hope that they will share the information.  I found a catalog listing for one interesting file, but I do not know if LitvakSIG has already indexed it.
The file is Vilniaus rabinų mokykla (Виленское раввинское училище) (Villnius School of Rabbis).

The link to the Archives Portal Europe listing for the Lithuanian State Historical Archives is:

Re: Klauznikaite- Lithuanian Jew emigrated to Detroit #usa

Barbara Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>
 

Klauznik, Klauznikiene, and Klauznikaite  are all the same name.    Lithuanian has suffixes that denote the sex and marital status of the name bearer.

as (us): suffix used to denote a male.

iene, aite: suffixes used to denote a married woman or widow.

aite (-utė-iūtė or -ytė): suffix used to denote an unmarried woman

Hello there! I am so excited I found this group. Thanks for adding me. I can use any help or advice! 
 
My great great grandparents through my father were Jozelis Klauznik and Golda Klauznikiene [maiden name Volfsonas]. 
 
They had four children that I know of. One of them was a Jewish bride that a Jew in Detroit purchased and married. They had children, and he had a successful construction business here in Detroit. They sent letters and photographs for a long time back and forth before they married. I don’t know her first name, but her maiden name was Klauznikaite. My grandfather’s second wife destroyed all the documents before they could be photocopied so I’m kind of on my own now.
 
•I am guessing she finally moved to Detroit sometime around 1920-1940. 
 
•Does anyone know a Jewish construction company that was popular at the time?
 
•Does anyone know how to track Jewish brides? 
 
•Does anyone know of a way to track my relative? I’m very experienced with genealogy searches and have looked everywhere online, but I don’t know if someone else has a recommendation.

This is my great grandmother, Feige. I am looking for her sister. 


Re: Klauznikaite- Lithuanian Jew emigrated to Detroit #usa

A search for Klauznik at www.fultonhistory.com which is a site of old digitized newspapers, found a 1917 NY Times article which listed names of people in the U.S. being sought by relatives in Russia.  On this list is Miss Etta Klauznik of Detroit.

Re: Records for Werner and Eisenhandler families for Nowe Miasto and Ulanov #poland #ukraine

Mjacobsfr@...
 

Thank you for this information - it is good to know that I can cut down the research a bit! Please can you tell me how I can obtain official records for Ulanow, dating back to the 1860s and up to WW2? If I could have a contact email address, that would be most helpful.
Best regards,
Maggie Jacobs


Re: Records for Werner and Eisenhandler families for Nowe Miasto and Ulanov #poland #ukraine

Mjacobsfr@...
 

Please excuse me for not replying sooner but I haven't had an internet connection over the last few days.
I haven't come across the Metzger family while researching our Eisenhandler and Werner connections.
I am particularly interested in Tobias Eisenhandler, born 1865 - I think in Nowe Miasto, but I have no birth record to
officialize this. I know nothing definite about his parents. He married Lea Werner, who was born in Ulanow in 1867. Once again, I have no birth certificate or marriage certificate. They had five children, all of whom used the surname Werner (common at that time, I am told). The first three children were born in Nowe Miasto between 1890 and 1898. The fourth was born in Ulanow and the fifth in Vienna. Tobias and Lea were divorced on 24/12/1918 in Ulanow. She died in Paris in 1938.
Tobias married twice more, first to Lotti Reinisch on 3/5/1920 in Ulanow and they were divorced on 15/7/1920 in Ulanow. He later married Frieda Zahler, born on 18/2/1895 in Poland. Tobias and Frieda had a daughter Rosa in 1926. All three of them perished in Treblinka in August 1942.
i don't know whether any of the above appear in your family tree.
Good luck with your research,
Maggie Jacobs

If the death certificate recorded the event as an accident, then there's a chance that the medical examiner was involved and some paperwork may exist in the medical examiner's office providing additional information about the accident (in New York City, it would be the Office of Chief Medical Examiner).
