Re: Request for interpretation of comments on manifest of alien passengers arrivng at the port of New York #usa

Susan&David
 

Are you aware of the SI notation in the first column of the first page?  Hyman was the subject of a Board of Special  Inquiry  hearing. See the manifest on Ancestry.com. image 88 0f 89.  He failed the initial immigration inspection for LPC  (Likely Public Charge) and needed a Dr. Certificate. He was deported on July 31  aboard the Baltic. 
As for the added handwriting:  It starts "Dr. Cert. Old arm ..... right arm ....   " Very hard to make out more.    It might mean that he had an issue with his right arm that the medical staff said would limit his ability to earn a living and that he would become a likely public charge.

Re: Bessarabia Revision Lists #bessarabia

Dr. Teodoro S. Kaufman
 

Dear Yefim,
I am puzzled about the 1910 revision lists. There is a whole KOFMAN family detailed in a 1910 list found in JG. They are the descendants of Lipe Kofman (the list spans over a whole century). However, as far as I know, the following members of this list were already in Argentina at that time: Nehama (wife of Shmuel), Elya (Elias), Shlema (Salomon), Lipa (Luis) and Chaya Malka. I wonder how was this possible. Thanks in advance for your consideration
Sincerely
Teodoro Kaufman

Chudnov Researcher for Goltzman Family #ukraine

MARLISE GROSS
 

I am looking for a researcher in Chudnov (https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/community.php?usbgn=-1037412) who can help me find records from 1900 to 1943.  My newly discovered second cousin, once removed, is a child of the Holocaust and I am helping her family identify who her parents were.  She remembers her mother's name was Tzilia.  From DNA, I know she is related to my Goltzman family.  The other names that are matching in DNA and Chudnov are Reimer, Izes, and Solomon.  I have made connections with US based descendants of these families, but what I really need are records from the time period when she was born and her parents were married.

I have potentially identified the mother on Yad Vashem as Tzilya Goltzman.  Conversing with the descendant of the testimony writer uncovered that the death information was based on second hand knowledge, and whether or not Goltzman was her married or maiden name is unknown.  https://yvng.yadvashem.org/index.html?language=en&s_id=&s_lastName=goltzman&s_firstName=&s_place=chudniv&s_dateOfBirth=&cluster=true

I would appreciate information on where the records that I need are located, if at all, and if there is a knowledgeable researcher in that area who can do a search for me for these documents.

Thank you,

Re: How Do I Access JRI Poland #poland #records

Stanley Diamond
 

-
In response to Sana Loue's question about obtaining records from three 
towns, I will start by emphasizing that:

      All online JRI-Poland data is free.   No "subscriptions" are necessary.

For information about specific online or offline records for a town, contact 
the volunteer town leader noted on the JRI-Poland website. Town leaders 
are available to help you whatever your town of interest and get great 
satisfaction from doing so.  Reach out by:
  
     * Using the web form on the Town Explorer pages of our website:
           https://jri-poland.org/town/index.htm 

     * Writing to:  [townname]@jri-poland.org
 
I would like to take this opportunity to share part of the message that appeared 
in the April edition of the JRI-Poland "For the Record" Newsletter.  It said...

"Keep in mind we are often inundated with requests! Some of us receive as many 
as 25 or more genealogy-related inquiries each week. And we all try to be helpful 
with advice about research steps. Circumstances permitting, our volunteers will go 
into detail with instructions about search results, and under some conditions, even 
send an image of an actual document as a favor.

Each email we receive can take 15 minutes to an hour (or even two hours!) to fully 
answer and most require a follow-up email asking the requestor for clarification before 
the original question(s) can be answered. Time lag between emails, other requests 
waiting for responses, and daily life adds more time to “refresh one’s memory” about 
a case to construct a complete or correct answer.

All this underlines the importance of sending your email request to the right person to 
obtain the best answer in the shortest amount of time. Please download this handy 

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland is an independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization 
with its own administration, volunteers and fundraising.  As a way to extend our reach,

From: Sana Loue

I am confused by how the new JRI-Poland record access works.
 
I wonder if someone can explain because I have three different records I am interested

order to get the information?  
 
Please post to the group and send a copy to my individual email.

Re: Identify Ancestral town in Latvia abandoned 1893 #latvia

Michele Lock
 

The Russian Imperial Navy had a base at Liepaja (Libava) - perhaps this is the base your family history is referring to?

There is a town east of there called Durbe, though there are also other smaller towns nearby that begin with the letter D. 

My experience with Lithuanian town names is that the Yiddish equivalents are often one or two syllables shorter than the modern names (for instance Yiddish Gruzd for modern Gruzdziai). So your one syllable town name that begins with a D could have a Latvian name of two or three syllables.
