Family of Jenny Rosenstein, Neustadt am Rübenberge #germany

Christiane
 

Hello,
 
I am looking for relatives of Jenny Pins, nee Rosenstein. Jenny was born in Neustadt am Rübenberge in 1878. There she married her husband Louis Pins and moved to Dülmen. In 1940 she emigrated to Montevideo. She died in 1946.
I am specifically looking for the Rosenstein family from Neustadt.

Thanks
Christiane Daldrup

Paul,
Did you search this database :

There are many entries. You may find your father. I hope you will.

Re: Need help interpreting marriage record from Gesher Galicia #galicia #records

Carole Bass
 

Sally, thank you for the explanation. Now a follow-up question: how do you record these names in your family tree? Do you use the "correct" name (which, as I understand it, is "correct" only because the civil authorities didn't recognize Jewish religious marriages)? Or the father's surname, which is presumably what the person used in life?

Thanks again.

Minsk gubernia town - Chuty, Huta or Choota #belarus

Risa Heywood
 

Is anyone familiar with a village or town in Minsk gubernia that was known as Chuty or Chuta? I am trying to figure out the town or area my great-grandmother's family was from so I can start searching for Russian records. I haven't found any Russian records for the family on JewishGen and the town names I have are not pointing to one area or district.

The surname in the US was Zipkin or Chipkin, family story says it was Tzipkin in Russia. The passenger list records that I have are for Zipkin, Zipin, Cipin (2) and Tzipin. These are for 6 siblings.

Any US document without a specific town name says that the family was from Minsk. Documents that give town names for where the siblings were from or born give the following towns:
Szmilowitz and Schmilowitz
Chuty, Huta and Choota
Yurewitz and Jurewitz
The spouse of one brother who married in Russia was from Nistonowitz

I've used the JewishGen Town Finder and also the Gazeteer but the most likely town matches seem to be:
Szmilovich could be Smilovichi, Igumen district or Smolevichi, Borisov district
Yurewitz - could it be Yaremichy, Rechitsa district
Nistonowitz could be Nestanovichi, Borisov district, Minsk
Nothing likely comes up for Chuty, Huta or Choota. It could be many tiny villages.

Any help is appreciated!

Offering Mt Zion Cemetery, Maspeth, Queens NY #usa

A. E. Jordan
 

I am going to continue to do cemetery visits as long as the weather holds out in New York.

I am offering photos from Mt Zion, in Maspeth, Queens.

Please send me the specific names, dates and location of the grave. You can research people on the cemetery website.

Mt Zion is one of the largest cemeteries in the area and while most of it is very well laid out some plots are difficult. I am not sure if the office is open to the public as well and some cases the only way to find people is with a map from the office.

Please no generic requests saying that I think someone s buried there or sending me around the cemetery to find everyone with a specific name in hopes it is your family member.  FamilySearch transcribed a lot of the death certificates and they show what cemetery someone is buried in.

My process is I group and sort the requests based on location, time, weather and how far I can get in a day.

I appreciate but do not require a few dollars in return to help offset the cost of doing this for everyone. Unfortunately the expense of doing this week after week, plus having to invest in a new camera, adds up. 

As always feel free to ask questions as well on email. Please reply directly to me and not the entire list.

Please send me the specific names, dates and location of the grave. You can research people on the cemetery website which is one of the best databases available. Better to use the cemetery page versus the commercial sites like Find a Grave.

Re: Records for Ellis Island deportations #records

Wendy Griswold
 

Years ago I wrote to Homeland Security (was it INS then?) asking if they had anything on my mother's uncle, who was rejected at Ellis Island in 1906. They referred me to the US archives, and told me exactly what file to ask for, and its location. What I got was a miracle: the record of the hearing on his appeal of deportation. A treasure trove of information. I am told that very few of them survived.

Kind regards,

Re: Travel from Galicia or Imperial Russia to Bessarabia #bessarabia #russia #galicia

Renee Steinig
 

It's not possible for a town to have been partly in Galicia and partly in Bessarabia, because the two regions didn't share a border.

A possibility to consider is Novoselitsa, Bessarabia -- now Novoselytsya, Ukraine.
https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/community.php?usbgn=-1048544
It's on the Prut River, which separated Bessarabia and the Austrian crown land of Bukovina, and about 27 miles from Lipkany -- now Lipcani, Moldova.

Half of the town of Nova Sulitzy was in Galicia and half was in Russia. I was wondering if anyone has any information about their families' journey from Galicia to Bessarabia or from a part of Tsarist Russia to the specific area of Bessarabia. The family name I am researching is Wallach.>>

I haven't heard the term before, but the Seward Park Strollers were most likely homeless. Seward Park is on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, at Essex Street/East Broadway.

Re: Improving the Odds of a Reply When Contacting Someone by E-Mail #general

Diane Jacobs
 

I agree totally but one trick I learned if I am able to make contact with a possible relative who does not know me is to give them some information they might not know and then they usually respond and provide me with information.

I have made contact with family over the years and with some friendships.  I have
visited family in Sydney. London, Halifax NS, Los Angeles, Miami Beach, and Tel Aviv.

Hi Ralph,
Twenty or thirty or more years ago, I wrote to a cousin who DID know me and did not respond. About 5 years ago she died, her son found the letter and contacted me. 
I would say 1 out of 10 is great odds. Mine were not that good. 
Not everyone in the family is interested in the family tree.
A bigger annoyance: cousins who are working on the same family and will not answer emails or work with you! I have better luck with complete strangers.

Re: Dobromil research guidance #ukraine

Tony Kahane
 

Hi David,

A good way to find possible Jewish vital record sets from Galicia is to search Gesher Galicia's "Global Search" facility. You can find this at:
https://inventories.geshergalicia.org/#/
If you enter "dobromil births" in the search box at the top, you will see the second result in the list, which is:
"Dobromil [Jewish] Births 1896-1915". This is held, as it indicates, at AGAD, in their Fond 300, File 3211. There is also a green rectangle displayed on the right of this record, labeled "SCANS AVAILABLE". If you click on the green rectangle, the link will take you straight to the set of page images of this book, stored on the AGAD website. There you can inspect the records, including those from 1906.

The Global Search facility aims to cover all the Polish state archive and Ukrainian state archive branches with records from Galicia. The exception is the National Archives in Kraków. We plan to add record sets held in Kraków once the restructuring of that archive is complete - hopefully next year.

Best wishes,

Tony Kahane

If Viewmate doesn't work out, I have used someone by the name of Joshua Grayson. His rates are reasonable. He gave a seminar at the IAJGS Conference, and has a website: Lost Roots Family History. One of the things he did for me was to translate Kurrentschrift.

Hi from Paris,
Dear Paul,
I have checked with Google to be sure (even if you surely did it), and there is no link to "Legion Etrangère Civile".
My GF was enrolled in Legion Etrangere, as a lot of Bundist from Paris : I have some of their military papers.
If you wish, send me by private mail or by Viewmate your document for a more accurate answer.
