"Could you please inform me how does one submit a new town name to the town finder list?"

You simply add the surname you are seeking, along with the town name. If it is new, Alexander Sharon will check it.

" r stands for recte, meaning false". False is f.

Actually r means 'correctly'. Usually records have Schwartz r Blau, meaning the surname is Schwartz but should be Blau. The civil records clerk found the birth record or whatever of the person, and his / her parents weren't married civilly, so they 'should' be recorded with their mother's maiden name, Blau, but they use their father's surname, Schwartz. The rest of this answer was correct (r), but the meaning of the r was wrong.

If you've already published some family tree information (my heritage, ancestry, etc.) you should add a link to your family page. This will prove your authenticity and entice the other person to cooperate and join your effort.

Looking for the family of Gerszon NACHIMOWICZ/Warsaw #poland #latinamerica

deborah.shindell@...
 


-- Hi, I'm looking for the family of Gerszon Nachimowicz, a tailor in Warsaw who survived the Holocaust and joined his brother Mortka in Argentina. He may have been married to Sarenka (Sofia) Rozenpik. Mortka emigrated to Argentina in 1926. Please email me if you have information about the relatives of these two men. Thanks.

Re: Can This Be Translated #translation

I would suggest posting this on the Jewishgen Viewmate page https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/
and requesting a Yiddish translation. The picture is currently upside down and there is a way to rotate the picture when you upload it. I think the handwriting is relatively clear so you'll probably get responses from people whose Yiddish is much better than mine. I can tell you that it is addressed to "my dear Uncle and Aunt"

My cousin asked me to help her find her father and uncles.

"...They were born in Sompolno, Polin. Can they write another address "Jacob Wilczynski" born 1908? married to Rela Roboski " After the Shoa and with a baby" Alex "" Josef Wilczynski "was born 1923/1926 (Jacob's brother) they were together in Europe, he spoke of Paris, and he traveled by train through Europe until he received permission to travel to Uruguay, There was a brother Abraham who arrived in 1939....They arrived by boat in Montevideo Uruguay. I do not know how to search,..."

This a translation from Spanish, so it may  not be exactly what she wrote.

Thanks for guidance.

We all have that problem and the problem behind the problem is that we do not know what the other person likes to see in an email or letter or her or his interest in the family tree.  I suspect most people already know how interested they are in helping as soon as they read your note.  It simply will not persuade them.  For those who cooperate, you do not know how much information they want to see or can even understand.  That is why my messages have a two pronged approach.  Three or four sentences about why I am writing, the potential relationship, and asking for their help.  And then I include the data which have the matching names.  This is two create a record of why I am contacting the person and to establish my creditability and legitimacy.   

Even with all this, I get about one out of ten to respond and very, very few relatives who traditional genealogy can confirm.

Good luck and keep writing those letters.

Re: Malvine Weiss transferred to MAUTHAUSEN 14 April 1945, then where? #hungary #holocaust

emmabcole@...
 

So I have now located the Sharit haPlatah list of survivors on this site, which includes a Malvin-Mor Weiss last known location as Homberg. I am wondering if this is the Malvin I am looking for, as the birth location given, Mezökereszes, is near Onod where I believed she was born. Does anyone know how I can view the actual list or anything about what might have been at Homberg? (this Malvin is on the list ID 2169, pg 363, line 22). Thank you in advance for any help you can give. Emma Cole

Hi Sherri,

Unfortunately I do not have any of that. I've checked all the usual places for that kind of information but have come up with nothing. This is my grandfather's stepmother's parents. Their daughter Rachel "Rose" Levy became his stepmother when he was a child (in 1921, after his mother died at the age of 26). I am getting Rose's birth and death certificates, in case that has any additional information about Simon and Lena. 

Thank you for the suggestions!

Re: Minsk Jewish names, #names #belarus

mvayser@...
 

Marcia,
"ov" suffix is an indicator of a male patronymic.  This person's father's name was Itsko.  This name should be preceded by a given name of the person, e.g., Aron Itskov Dunner means Aron son of Itsko Dunner.  Sometimes you will see the male version of the patronymic with the "ovich" suffix, instead of "ov", but it means exactly the same thing.  For females the suffix is "ova" or "ovna" - Sura Itskova (or Itskovna) Dunner (Sura daughter of Itsko Dunner).
In some cases these patronymics became last names, e.g., Aronov, Abramov.

We invite you to attend another free presentation in our series of JewishGen Talks webinars, with our speaker, Dr. Stephen Morse.

 

The History of the Geography of New York City

Wednesday, November 18, 2020

2:00 PM Eastern Time (New York)

 

New York City has undergone numerous changes in its geographical boundaries over the years. An understanding of these boundaries is important in order to know what archive to search in when looking for vital records. This talk shows the changes to New York City's geography, and describes the difference between New York City and the City of New York. The origin of the counties and their changing boundaries, along with the early geographies of Brooklyn and Queens, are presented. And finally, the consolidation of 1898 that created the City of New York and defined the five boroughs is discussed.

 

Dr. Stephen Morse is the creator of the One-Step Website for which he has received numerous awards, including both the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Outstanding Contribution Award from the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies. In his other life, Morse is a computer professional with a doctorate degree in electrical engineering. He is best known as the architect of the Intel 8086 (the granddaddy of today's Pentium processor), which sparked the PC revolution nearly 40 years ago.
