Re: 1917 Military Census #general

I just became aware that a Military Census was taken in 1917. Has anyone
heard anything about this and where would the records be held? It seems each
state took their own census.
I have not seen a Military Census for Connecticut, but I do have a three-volume
set of books entitled, "Service Records, Connecticut, Men and Women in the
Armed Forces of the United States During World War 1917-1920," published by the
Adjutant General of the State (there is no date of publication shown). I would
guess that other states published similar books.

Along with a brief military record, the roster shows the person's name, race,
serial number, and address at time of enlistment. I would be glad to do
lookups if anyone is interested.

VENITT/VERACHNETSKY name change #general

Seesiegel <seesiegel@...>
 

Both very unusual names, yet I am having difficulty locating them. My
grandfather, Louis VERACHNETSKY (b. 1874? Odessa Russia,) (d. 1930's, Rochester,
NY) came to the US around the turn of the century. Siblings were Morris
(Menasha)VENITT and Schaindel. (They changed their name) I found the obituary
for one of Morris' sons (Max) with children listed, but find no white pages
(internet) listing for Michael, Sandy or Jeffrey VENITT. If they have moved
out of the country, how else could I find them?
My ultimate goal is to find the names and place of origin of the parents of
Louis VERACHNETSKY. He changed his name to ROTENBERG at some point and married
Celia TOBIAS (>from Latvia). I wrote for his marriage certificate, but no
response yet.

I also know that Morris VENITT married Fanny SCHOSID.
Please email to me privately if the above information is recognizable to you.

Roslyn: Medical records >from sperm banks, invitro-fertilization, and
surrogacy would be treated as confidential and not accessable without consent
of the patients. Birth, death, and marriage/divorce certificates are a matter
of public record, accessable to anyone. But, gay marriages would only have the
associated paperwork where they are legal. Adoption records are also treated
as confidential by the courts, though some adoption agencies will release
information with the consent of the adoptive and/or genetic family.

Good luck....

Help find Sam GROSS, Bronx #general

Theo Travis <travis@...>
 

Having unearthed my grandmother's address book, I found a listing for a Sam
Gross, who could be a cousin of my grandfather. Both of my grandparents have
been dead for over 20 years, so I can't ask them. It is possible that Sam
GROSS is also dead, and he would certainly be in his 80s if alive. There was
no area code or address listed, which indicated to me that he probably lived
somewhat locally to my grandparents, who were in the Bronx. I have checked
the internet and there is one S Gross listed in the Bronx, but with a
different phone number.

I have two questions: was a number that began with 923 (5727 was the rest)
likely to be in the Bronx and does anyone have an old phone book (very old)
from the New York area that they can check so I can at least nail down when
he was living at that number and maybe when he stopped living there? I live
in London so I can't go to the NYC public library for myself. Can I order
phone books >from the FHC?

Thanks

Search engines #general

Anita Citron <anitac1@...>
 

Since this may be a question of general interest I am responding to the list.
The easiest way I have found to locate a person is to type his/her name
into the URL and ask the search engine to find him/her. Good luck.
Might I also add, use something like Altavista. Many metasearch engines
just give you the top few hits. Altavista gives you every little bit of
nonsense on the web with the name. Also, try more than one search engine. I
am not quite sure what each sets as criteria on a search or how a site is
listed by them but apparently they vary.

AND, don't just check once. Sites appear and disappear often.
