It is an old "custom" for jewishgen contributors to end their

Would it be possible to create a database which captures these facts
? It would be such an advantage to be able to contact individuals
based on the names they seek.

I do use the JGFF, but I agree with the idea of cleaning it up.  So many of the researchers have not been on in the last 10 years.  I do know that they do add RD for the deceased researchers, when someone reports that fact.  But many of the older researchers may no longer be able to use email- or are not actively researching.  Perhaps a better project would be to have the emails sent to those who have not been on since before this date in 2010- and ask them if they are still interested in having their names and contact information on the JGFF.  Then each year after the first, there would only be a single year to check on.  Now that said - I have been teaching a beginning Jewish genealogy class - and two Sundays ago - showed my class how to use the JGFF.  One student has already reported that he had been in contact with a woman in England, who had not been on Jewishgen since 2018 - and he "hit the jackpot".  He knew he had family in England.  She did not know that she had family in the US, and they have already figured out their relationship.

It used to be that family names in capitalization were a required part
of our signatures. That requirement should still be in place so other
Jewish genners can discover new relatives. Recently when looking through
the JGFamily Finder data base it seemed very antiquated to me, People
who last were on JGFF were years ago and how many are still active,
alive or interested.

For all the new and current people using Jewishgen.org, your family
names will give you a better connection to all the people currently
active. For myself I make my own file of those who could be possible
relatives and contact them when I think their may be a family connection.

Re: Do old hotel registers exist? #general

Mash, thank you very much for your reply. I agree with you regarding privacy issues and newspapers.com notices. So far, the most informative reply, though not the one I wanted to see, came from Debra Hirsh, via Tracing The Tribe group on facebook: [answering your question,] "as someone who got into the hotel industry WAY after that. I'm going to say, probably not. I was in the industry for 30 years and we kept things 7 years as a rule."

Since my original post, A30 Canadian Immigrations cards for the man and his wife were discovered. I now know the couple’s names, so the more realistic next step seems to look for burials of any ‘Lester’-looking names in Toronto, in the hope that there will be a Hebrew part of a tombstone reading Naftoli b. Ber, or Nechame b. Moshe.

I think it does. If you search by a particular surname, it lists surname, town, researcher.

Not only do you see the last name you are looking for, but you get the member name or number and a link to contact them with.

 

No matter what the subject is, as soon as I am done reading a post to the group, if someone has a signature with the families and locations they are looking for, I read through and see if there is a chance we can be related …to me, the  key is being polite and respectful…  I always apologize to the poster telling them I am sorry I can’t answer their initial post but would be willing to explore any possible family connections based on their signature if they would like to…

Sliwkiewicz or Slivkevich, originally of Warta, Poland #poland
From: John Crust
Date: Wed, 23 Sep 2020 05:16:49 EDT
Hello. I'm seeking information about a SLIWKIEWICZ or SLIVKEVICH family, originally from Warta (or Varta; in Yiddish, Dvort), Poland. The father and sons were Jewish headstone makers and operated a family business in Warta before the war (I don't have a name for the father). I am particularly interested in the son, Meir (spelling?), who died during the Warta Ghetto era, probably in 1940. An older son was Szmuel or Shmuel.

Thank you.

Re: Require help in understanding items on the attached New York marriage certificate #records

Sally Bruckheimer
 

"The bride's given name appears on both pages, the 2nd signed presumably by her. "

The back was not signed by her, as both signatures are by the same hand.  The front was filled out, by him probably, in a very different hand.
He didn't read English well, and put an address where it asks for number of marriage. 

This isn't rocket science, you could figure it out.

Re: What would be a full set of naturalization records in NYC from the 1850's? #records

Barbara Ellman
 

Early naturalization records have very little information on them.  Basically, what is on the index card is pretty much it.
 
Not to say that you shouldn't look for the actual papers.  They can be rather humorous.  I had one that went on for 6 pages on what a great guy he was without any genealogical information.
 
I have never seen a ship's name on any of the documents I've seen.
 
Good luck

Re: Do old hotel registers exist? #general

Mashiach L. Bjorklund
 

Hotel registers (AKA Hotel Guest Register Log Book) are not legal documents, therefore they were not archived like other documents. If you find one it should be considered a random find. Sometimes, in small towns, the local boarding house / guest hotel had it's register published in the local small town newspaper. People were nosey and privacy was not a big concern in days past. But in larger urban areas this was not the case. But it does imply that you might want to search Newspapers.com for that time period and that local. People were still nosey about visitors, and perhaps his reason for being there was noted.

Re: What would be a full set of naturalization records in NYC from the 1850's? #records

Sally Bruckheimer
 

"I have been able to find the Declaration of intent (19 April 1850) and Oath (2 July 1843) as components of the naturalization record of my 2nd great grandfather Charles Schiff.  They correspond to the records referenced in the index to naturalization records - dates, bundle number and record number – all on Ancestry.  Neither the index card nor the records contain the port of arrival or date of arrival. "

My family also came very early. All you get is "I give up allegiance to the King of ___"

I always write in response to people who tell us that all naturalizations come with Certificates of Arrival and name changes and such, that not all do. 

I did however get the naturalization papers for a cousin who naturalized in 1906 (the last in the Niagara County Court), and this Russian Jew said he was born in Marseilles! It was amazing, as was getting the actual paper in my hand to look at.
