I agree that it looks like Bechel Teitler.  The "B" compares to how he writes his upper case "B's" on the manifest.

Perhaps search for someone with that name in records of the town from which he came, and search for Bechel Teitler in incoming U.S. passenger manifests as he may have come to the U.S. afterwards.

Consider that Bechel may have alternate spellings in other records.

Re: tens of thousands members "family trees" in Ancestry #announcements #general #education

I and many others on JewishGen have ranted about this for years. There seems to be many individuals -- I call them "amassers" -- who pluck small family groups as new data appear on Ancestry and construct "trees" that are mindlessly picked up by genealogical naifs who add unrelated members of their families and construct  larger family trees. Seldom do verifying, additional sources appear that justify this mindless activity. I've contacted individuals asking about their relationship to members of my family and they either do not reply or give the lame excuse that they "forgot and have to look up" how they are related. A few have said they just saw the data on Ancestry and constructed a tree. Why? Anyone's guess. Maybe they get some sort of brownie points (in their own minds) for constructing these family group trees.

Does anyone know what is the meaning of the "146" attached to the town name?

It is not the house number as that is 113

Many of the small, old cemeteries are now managed by the Jewish Cemetery Association of Massachusetts, JCAM, which has a searchable database. I have learned that you must search multiple variations for a name if you find no matches the first time. Below is what I have found. In this case, the photo means the grave is unmarked. I live about 20 minutes from this cemetery and will be happy to obtain photos for the other two on a warmish day.

Re: Expedited Death Certificate Order from Albany, NY #usa

Sherri Bobish
 


Arnon,

If you know the city or town in which the certificate is filed than you may get a quicker response by applying directly there, rather than applying through Albany.  This page may be helpful:
https://www.familysearch.org/wiki/en/How_to_Find_New_York_Death_Records

To find where to apply for a vital record from a specific city or town in NY Google:
"name of city or town" ny "vital records"

This applies to vital records outside of the five boro's of NYC, which holds its vital records separately from NY State.

Re: Wolf Garfunkel #usa #poland #galicia

Hi Debbie,

If you search at:  https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Poland/
for surname GARFUNKEL, in the region of Lwow, you will find records for Rzeszow. 

I spotted several records of births to parents Wolf GARFUNKEL and Sime GRÌNBAUM.

If you search you will find those, and you may find other records relevant to your family.

Good luck in your search,

Sherri Bobish

I read it as Bechel Teitler, but it is on line 5.
It is much easier to read at familysearch.org: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JNYN-54D

Latvian Chanukah Present - Day 1 #latvia

Nancy Siegel
 

Throughout Chanukah we will be posting “presents” from Ann Rabinowitz — a series of articles focused on Latvia but of general interest to Jewish genealogy researchers. Ann has written extensively about Jewish genealogy.

A LATVIAN CHANUKAH PRESENT - DAY 1
A Chronology of Events in Latvia, 1920-1923
by Ann Rabinowitz 

In memory of my great uncle Max Hillman, who was born in Bauska, Latvia, and who started me on my genealogical research, which is so long ago now, I am posting a piece about Latvia every day throughout Chanukah. The posts will be about people, events, and daily life.

Today, I will begin with a chronology for the period of 1920 – 1923, which is based on articles that appeared on the Historical JewishPress website in Israel.

To read this article, go to the JewishGen Blog by clicking the link below or by clicking the Blog link under the “About Us” tab on the JewishGen Website
. These Chanukah articles will be posted to the Features section of the Blog.

Happy Chanukah!

Re: Romanian Birth records #romania #records

Hi Rebecca,
My family is also from Maramures. I found a lot of information on birth dates and other info (although not the actual records) on the Arolson Archives, which would help if he was in the Holocaust. I also heard that Jewishgen still has records that are being transcribed. I wonder if the privacy laws apply to these records?

February 23, 1921 my grandparents with their four adult children arrived at Ellis Island.  On the manifest, in the far left column, is "SI", Special Inquiry.  Spread over columns 4-7, next to my grandparents' names, and one of their children, is "Hold Med".
In the "Record of Aliens Held for Special Inquiry" after only my grandfather's name is "LP C" (Aliens likely to become public charges) as well as four other codes I cannot make out.
Under the "Actions of the Boards of Special Inquiry" below the subhead of "Admitted" the date is 3/5" "Page 69".  Under the headings "Breakfast" and Dinner" is the number six (6).
Does this indicate they were held at Ellis Island from February 23 until March 5?  If so does the "6" in the meal column mean that they only had six meals for the ten days they were held?
If anyone can help me understand this I would be most grateful.

Re: tens of thousands members "family trees" in Ancestry #announcements #general #education

jemanuel10@...
 

I have had some success with finding family members, but my frustration is that the view of a family group is isolated and there is
no way to connect the family laterally to other names in the tree.  I have talked to Ancestry about this and they do not have any capability
of doing this.  The owners of the tree have no idea (they never reply.)
Does anyone have a way of figuring this out?

Re: tens of thousands members "family trees" in Ancestry #announcements #general #education

Many people copy other trees that pop up as hints which is why they have so many names in their tree to begin with. In the beginning of my own research  a decade ago I was guilty but didn't take long for me to realize what I was doing wrong. Most of these are inexperienced in researching. I have experienced others copying my tree as well and mixing up parents also such as what two have said here. I keep mine private also. Unfortunately all are entitled to search however they want and no one is restricted on what is found. Ancestry does give a hint of a question mark if records and dates don't exactly match I have noticed but is ignored by quite a few. For those "more experienced" it is highly irritating. For me, though now I see immediately these people either don't realize they have these "floating names" in their tree and/or not where I am in my experience with researching. But those merely racking up the most deceased on FAG are horrible at this which is why I don't bother with that site at all. Trying to get them to change their erroneous information or even take a suggestion is just out of the question. Moderators as well don't seem to bother looking at the time passed for that one racking up names to respond to suggestions. But a lot of people do copy that information as if it is correct. I sympathize with disgruntled here but also agree that some have yielded information just unable to find otherwise such as in Stephen's case above.
