Re: Oustra-Polia #general

MarkGrekin <markgrekin@...>
 

My grandfather, Morris KELLNER, listed his place of birth as Oustra-Polia. I
think this must be Austria-Poland. May I have opinions on this please?

Meryl, hello again,

Oustra-Polia is not Austria-Poland.
There was a shtetl in old Russia by the name "Ostropol'e".

Origins of the name Etil #general

Percy Mett <p.mett@...>
 

Ellie Weld asks:
I have just discovered, >from a marriage authorisation, that my grandmother's
Hebrew name was Etil. Her English name was Matilda.
.....SNIP.....

Etil was (and still is) a common yiddish name. (Spelt ayin-tes-lamed).
Often shortened to Etti. In previous generations women frequently used
their yiddish name as their Hebrew name . Sorry but I have no idea whether
it means anything.

Bar (Ukraine) #general

LGoldst415@...
 

I was just wondering what information is there on the shtetl of Bar, Ukraine
of the period 1890-1925. It was located in the province of Podolia and the
nearest city is Vinitsa.

OK, I may displaying my ignorance, but isn't Orsha in Mogilev Guberniya?

I noticed a couple of conflicting postings about Social Security
Administration Death Index info in the most recent digest. I sent a
letter a few weeks ago with a personal check for $14 (application info
on both my parents) to the Baltimore address. What is a reasonable time
to expect a response? Was I wrong to include a check? I followed
instructions on Familytreemaker, but now feel like I sent a letter and
check into a vast void. Thanx in advance.

In response to the request for experience in requesting SS-5

share this with you. I believe the Greene Street address is the
correct one. I sent 2 requests early in July, separately, check
included. The first one just came back after about 8 weeks. The
second has not returned as of today!. Now, here is the funny
part. In early August, 4 weeks after the first requests I sent a
third request. This one was filled and back to me in 12 days!
Explain that one! Anyhow, >from now on I am going to use the form
suggested by Allan Rosen yesterday, giving them 10 days. Maybe
that will work.
