Census Primer #general

IsraelP <p2o5rock@...>
 

I wish to thank all those who took the time and patience to give me
a basic introduction to US Census information. I've not gone thru
it all yet, and some of it is contradictory (as is most information
based on personal experience) - but it is giving me an idea how to
approach this.

Poor Jews Temporary Shelter #general

cohentalk@...
 

On Jewishgen, after I read about the Poor Jews Temporary Shelter database at
:http://www.its.uct.ac.za/cgi/cgi_shelter.exe, I searched the site. To
my astonishment(!!!), I found the name of a person that could be my
grandmother Sarah EPSTEIN's brother Hyman EPSTEIN >from 1908 immigration. He
(EPSTEIN) at age 17, was a stowaway on a ship bound >from New York
to Russia. He was detained in South Africa for 14 days.

Could someone please advise me what my next step should be. How can
I use the information >from the database? Does South Africa have ships'
passenger lists? I have searched 100s of ships' lists. I have not found
any of my grandmother's family as passengers on ships to the USA. This
would be the first information/material about an Epstein relative. I haven't
located any of their paper trails to date; consequently,I very much want
to verify if this is my Epstein.

Thanks to all for your time and help,

Charlie Baum d. in 1960's in Philadelphia

anyone know where Roosha is, or if it is the expression for the time that

Any idea how to find records for Zgierz or Liepzig? Would marriage license

Searching: Pearl COHN, Union, NJ #general

Shirley Wilets
 

Searching for a second cousin, Pearl COHN, of Union, New Jersey.
I called information for her telephone number and was told that the phone was
unlisted.
Her parents were Morris and Dora Shapiro Pollack of Elizabeth, N.J. both
deceased.
They are survived by 8 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and a great
granddaughter.
I am hopeful that given the numbers of descendants I can make a connection
with someone.

Thanks for any suggestions.

My mggm and ggf, Jacob (Yankel) and Fannie (Faiga)(Weitzman) ROSENFIELD were
from Yelets, Russia. They arrived in US 1886, living in Providence, RI (10
Shawmut St.) until about 1920 where he was a kosher butcher. Had 5 children
that lived, Max, Charles, Louis, Corne (Ralph) and my gm Annie (her twin died
at birth). Jacob had brothers Tevya, Menesha and Alda in RI. I have
telegrams to my gm at her wedding in NJ (1917) >from Aunt Rebecca GORDON and
Aunt Kate ABEDAN >from Providence. Cannot find out anything about these
people. Have searched Jewish Gen, SSI index. Have no idea of when they
died. Is there anyone in RI who can research these two women? Also, is
anyone else out there researching Yelets ( 217 mi. s of Moscow)? I have been
the only person on the database and Jewish Gen for this place.
