In response to:

I am at a loss to understand why some ask for responses to genealogy
inquiries and then, when attempts are made by the rest of us to help our,
block replies into their eMail by asking us to sign up for their
spam-blocking programs.>>>

My reason for having my settings on high is because for every message that
I want, a suitcase full of messages come I don't want. Some bringing
spyware, viruses and worms. The benefit, besides the obvious, is that all
these messages are not stored in my computer until I request them. I
apologize for any inconvenience that may cause you the sender. Is this not
similar to people who give us their email address and ask us to delete
certain parts of it for obvious reasons?

Ancestors from Latvia - where did they go? #general

Joyce Gilbert <joycegilber@...>
 

How do I find more of what happened to ancestors? I heard there were none
left but I found some young ones here in the US last year. They also said
that all were killed in Latvia but I've heard of others that escaped - one
is supposed to be in St Petersburg. Have seen people with suspiciously
similar names and wonder if they are related - the name is not common -
there were only 6 people in US with it.

MODERATOR NOTE: As you just began your research, you'll be surprised to know
that 77 researchers are listed as researching the surname GILBERT. Go to the
JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF) located at: http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/ and
perform a simple search.
If your ancestors come >from Latvia, go to the Latvia SIG (Special Interest Group)
Homepage, located at: http://www.jewishgen.org/Latvia/ and check the resources
that are being offered there. Don't miss The All Latvia Database.

Dear Friends:
I am at a loss to understand why some ask for responses to genealogy
inquiries and then, when attempts are made by the rest of us to help our,
block replies into their eMail by asking us to sign up for their
spam-blocking programs. Such as:

"I apologize for this automatic reply to your email. To control spam, I now
allow incoming messages only >from senders I have approved beforehand. . . .
If you would like to be added to my list of approved senders, please fill
out the short request form (see link below). Once I approve you, I will
receive your original message in my inbox. You do not need to resend your

I just won't bother any more. Why not just get a Yahoo! or HotMail

Breslau Directory website problem #germany

Dear GERsig members,
At the site below when I view it in the English language, there appears
to be Name 1809 and Directory 1832 links, down the right hand side of
the page. When I clic these links and enter a surname and then clic on
"Los" [go], a "Bad Request" window opens. As I do not know any street address
details could this be the problem?

Can anyone help me access the 1809 and 1832 links on this site? regards

Good News for Pinsk Uyzed Reseachers #belarus

Adam Davis <adamrdavis@...>
 

Fellow Sigger's:

As I write this email, JewishGen has completed translation of two sets of
records >from the Pinsk Uyzed records that will fill in many of the question
marks and holes in your family tree. These projects are:

1. Jewish Vital Records (Births, Deaths and Marriages):
Jewish records; birth: 1882, 1922-4
Jewish records; death: 1924-28, 1930-39

2. 1816 Revision List and additional metrical records

The second project, the 1816 Reviskie Skaski for Pinsk are already finished.
As you all know, Revision lists are the richest source for research, and
this one of the earliest lists available after the absorption of the Pinsk
area into Russia. This time frame directly follows the adoption of surnames
among the majority of Belarussian Jews. I have been able to peak at these
records and believe I have found the the first users of our family surname.

The information in this list is a potential gold mine, but before these
records are published, we need to raise funds JewishGen spent to translate
them in the first place. The outstanding amount we need to raise is
approminately $1000, a reasonable amount in the scheme of things,
considering the size of the Jewish population of the the area at the time.
There are so many researchers with connections to Pinsk, it should be fairly
easy for us to raise the necessary funds and provide a very wonderful new
resources for researching our families. I URGE you to donate!

Consider for a moment the countless hours and dollars you've invested in
researching your family history. Now consider how the record translation
projects and infrastructure JewishGen provides have simplified your research
over the years. If you've gleaned but one piece of information via the
Belarus SIG, you know firsthand there are few more effective or effiencient
contributions you could make to benefit your own research than supporting
JewishGen's ongoing translation projects.

With that in mind, please consider a gift of Ten Chai, or $180 to publish
the completed 1816 Revision List translation. Click on the following link
and enter your donation under Pinsk Revision Lists and Metrical Records
(record acquisition and translation). Please join us!
