HERZ and STERN Kochendorf and Heppenheim #general

Alice Jose <alicejose@...>
 

I am searching for anyone related to the HERZ family >from Kochendorf (now
Bad Friedrichshall) Bad Wurttemburg and the Stern family >from Heppenheim
an der Bergstrasse in Hessen.

I am descended >from Jacob Herz in Kochendorf and Feist STERN in Heppenheim
(yes, there were mothers too of course!).

Hope someone out there has the same interest. This is my second day on the
internet, so of course I'm hoping for instant results!

Re: uncle-niece marriages in Rhode Island #general

Joy Weaver <joyweave@...>
 

My family also has an uncle-neice marriage which I believe occurred in
NY. In fact, the whole thing gets very complicated:

My father's parents were first cousins. And then my father's first
cousin (daughter of my grandfather's sister) married my grandmother's
brother.

Both the first cousin marriage and the uncle-neice marriage were, as far
as I know, in NY.

Searching LECKART and ULLIAN #general

Ruth Hilliard
 

I am searching for any information about the LECKART family from
Onushkis (Anashishik) Lithuania or about Anushkis. She came to
Chelsea, MA around 1912-13 as a teenager.
I am also researching the ULLIAN family who probably came from
somewhere outside of Kiev.

Re: March-April 1946 "Bialystoker Shtimmer" #general

Willie46 <willie46@...>
 

The list of "Jews in Bialystok After The War" first published in the
March-April 1946 issue of the _Bialystoker Stimme_ appears in "The
Bialystoker Memorial Book" published in 1982 by the Bialystoker Society
in New York.

A note to the list says that it was compiled by people who visited
Bialystok in 1945.

If you need more details, please contact me privately

I'm seeking information regarding my grandfather, Siegfried Dublon who
disappeared >from Paris, France (formerly of Wittlich,Germany). We
assume he was killed in a Concentration Camp but I have never been able
to determine where, when... Someone had once told me there is a Kibbutz
in Israel that has lists of people or has done research into such
matters. If anyone has any information regarding this matter I would be
most appreciative.

Question on London City Directories #general

Roger Stein
 

I believe my grandfather was living in London England in 1901 and 1902.
I will be visiting London in the next few weeks and would like to look
him up in a City Directory. Hopefully this would be similar to a
Telephone Directory where names are listed alphabetically.

I have searched the discussion group archives and found that there are
Post Office Directories that are organized by street and occupation. On
documents I have found his occupation was listed as peddler or merchant,
which may be too general.

In searching the web I have also found references to Kelly's
directories, but I am not sure what they are.

What types of directories are available, and where would I be able to
find them?

The ALD contains varying amounts of information for each type of record, and
because of this factor, there have been some technical difficulties working on
the specific search fields. For instance, Revision Lists have 22 fields, each
with valuable information regarding names, ages, relationship to others in
family, and miscellaneous information relating to occupations, absences from
town, etc. In our test model, we have been able to display an entire line
showing all of these facts about the individual found, and are presently
working on keeping all the records in a household together, so that one can
view the entire family at once.

Other lists, such as Voters, Taxes, Vital Records, etc., can hold anywhere
from 10 to 25 fields.
One way to speed up this process is to volunteer to input data. We have a
huge backlog of data >from a variety of shtetlach and uyezds, and need to get
it into the necessary format. We have had terrific volunteers so far, and
many of them have input several shtetlach each. Most have even found family
in the process! While we realize that you would prefer to input for your own
shtetl, please be aware that you may find matches in a shtetl you never even
heard of.

To input, write to Davida Noyek Handler or Anne Rothman at:

<Litvaks@aol.com>

and we will put you right to work!

We are almost there, and appreciate everyone's patience. Once up, this
database will be an incredible research tool.
