Re: Wrong people on family trees on genealogy sites #general

Geni  has the big advantage over Ancestry or MyHeritage  for Jewish families, in being accessible  to anyone, and potentially being corrected and added to by any other user, and certainly by a Curator (which I am). 

It also retains history of changes, which is invaluable for sorting out errors, and ensuring a high level of accuracy.  A great benefit is that corrections can be made without being the owner/creator of a particular profile, so that even if the original creator is no longer living, or a member of Geni, profiles can be corrected or added to. 

Marcel, if you can give me the link to the profile of "a woman died at the age of 20 and had a son 30 years later.", I can see if I can correct it.

Hi Jessica,
Please could you identify your country as it impacts on responses - well, mine at least! 
Thanks.

Jessica - One very easy thing to do is use the “comments” feature on ancestry.com. When in the tree with the incorrect person, go to the incorrect individual's profile click on “tools” top right then click on “view comments” and write your comment in the box. You can make it as long as you like or simply say "not the correct person" but it is helpful if you put the correct information in the comments.

I can tell you even a better story.  During a search on geni I found a woman died at the age of 20 and had a son 30 years later.  I didn’t know that IVF treatment existed already in the 18th century.  You try to reach the owner or an administrator, but it will be easier to get somebody on a phone when you want to have to get hold of somebody of any official administration, bank or complaint office.

Bednovitch family from Zambrow who became Bedno in Chicago #usa

Sandy Levin
 

Looking to connect with relatives of my grandmother, ANNA BEDO(WICZ) who was
from ZAMBROW and arrived in Chicago. Her father’s name was Israel Zvi. She
married Sam Levin, was born Sam Yellin in Wysockie Maz, probably around 1890.
They married in 1913 in Chicago. Anna passed away in 1967, Sam in 1968. They
had three children, Ida, Sol and Jack. Anna had at least three brothers, Joe, Jake
(Jacob) and Morris and a sister Sarah. The three boys all arrived in 1904 on
different sailings from Bremen.. JACOB was born around 1884 and died in
Chicago in 1964. Jake married Ann Ritholz. Jake was president of King Optical. Ann
died in 1978. Irving, Jules, Edward, Howard were their children. JOE also lived in
Chicago and is buried in Waldheim. He was married to Fannie and they had one
child (Hyman/Howard) born in 1918. Joe either died young or was divorced from
Fannie. Howard was in the music business and passed away in 2006. He had two
daughters. MORRIS was born around 1880. He never married. Morris's 1915 draft
card lists as next of kin Joseph Bedno with an address on Francisco Avenue in
Chicago. Morris is also buried in Waldheim. SARAH married Max Zolkewitz. Sarah
died in 1963. She and Max had four children, Carl, Jock/Jacob, Hy, and Ann.
Ann married Lou Slutsky. They had no children.
Any information you can share would be appreciated.

Re: NYC Police Reports #records

My experience with police departments is that none of them keep records
beyond a few decades. It seems really strange that law enforcement does
not keep these records in an archive, but I've never encountered any that
do.

Found BIBUSKIE certificate of citizenship #names

Felissa Lashley
 

While going thru some boxes of family papers and photos I found an original Certificate of Citizenship for a BIBUSKIE. To the best of my knowledge there is no relationship to my family, but my father was an officer in the Cherkasser Benevolent Association and had old ledgers in which this was found.
 
I would be happy to mail it to a relative if you identify the first name and residence.
 
Sincerely,

Help deciphering "Birth Registration" from Lapichi in 1880s--ViewMate postings #belarus #records #translation

David Gordon
 

I received two images (front and back) of a document that I am told is the “Birth Registration” of my grandfather, Gershon Gurevich, who was born in Lapichi in Belarus in 1887 (or 1889).  His father’s name was (Rabbi) Moshe Aharon Gurevich and his mother was Chaya Ruchl (Drazin).  The quality of the images is extremely poor, making it very difficult to read.  I would be most grateful for any information or translation that anyone is able to provide.

 

The front of the document is https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM93350

The back of the document is https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM93349

Wrong people on family trees on genealogy sites #general

mpipik
 

I don't know if this discussion is allowed here, but I'll try anyway.

I have been checking for updates and new searches on Ancestry & MyHeritage.  I have found some trees that have members of my family on them.  But given the other information on the trees, they don't seem to actually be connected to my family or the information on the tree is most incorrect.  In one instance, I think my whole family was pulled into that tree although the "connecting" person was the wrong person (similar name).  

I have tried to contact the owners of the trees to get more information, but have not gotten responses to every query.  In one case I did get a response and the "owner" did not acknowledge that her information was incorrect nor provide any proof that it was correct.  Other people have asked for corrections and more information.

Do I understand that this information is impossible to have removed unless the owner of the tree does it?  I find it very upsetting that

a) incorrect information is out there and b) that people who have been dead for under 30 years are still listed and that information could be used for identify theft of the descendants.

Re: Published Jewish Family Histories #general

jbonline1111@...
 

While I am not certain, I suspect that most Jewish Historical Societies have this sort of material. Two I know of are the Charleston (SC) Jewish Historical Society and the New Haven (CT) Jewish Historical Society. I suspect that libraries in older cities that were home to many Jews may also have nonpublished works and privately published works as well.
