Re: Lachowicze Records Translated #belarus

That would be nice. I know very little about my Lachowitsky (that's how my
grandma spelled it) family. My great grandfather was Abraham Lachowitsky. My
grandmother was Malka Lachowitsky Granat. She was born in Slutsk, Belarus.
When they came to New York Abraham deserted the family. I have been unable to
track him down. If your neighbor has family >from Slutsk or environs, we could
be related.

Re: No United States Merchant Marine? Nonsense! #general

Thank you for that info! I was beginning to think that my father was
hallucinating!

I have the bars and medals he received during his service as a Merchant Marine
and some of the info coming across saying there was no such service had me
wondering!

Bless you for the info. I didn't know where to look!

Cost of Translations #general

What is the going rate, per hour or per project, for translation
services? I have a translator who has been doing work voluntarily but is
now asking, rightly so, for payment. I'm really at a loss. Thanks for
your help.

Passenger lists/NY to Canada? #general

Olga G. Parker <OGParker@...>
 

Does anyone know if there are passenger lists, or information about ships
which sailed between NYC and Quebec, or other Canadian ports? Anything
comparable to the Morton Allan Directory? (Does it cover ships sailing
between US and Canada?)

Thanks much,

Olga Parker/So. Dakota

Re: New Search Engine #general

:There is another, also interesting Jewish site called Jewhoo:
:
:http://jewhoo.com/
:
I went to this site, which uses a logo itendical to that of "Yahoo!" but
I
don't know if it is officially associated with that search engine or not.

It is an index of famous personalities of more or less Jewish ancestry.
They have categories for "Arts and Humanities", "Business and Ecomony",
"Entertainment", "Government", "News and Media", "Music and Musicians",
"Science", "Sports" but amazingly, no categories for "Rabbis and Religion".
