Latvia SIG #Latvia Christien Usdin to Speak at the IAJGS Conference in Los Angeles #latvia

Subscribers to the Latvia SIG listserve know that Christine Usdin has helped
most of us research our Latvian Jewish heritage. Because of the great work
she has done, and continues to do, the SIG has invited Christine to speak at
its annual meeting at the IAJGS conference in Los Angeles, and we are
extremely happy that Christine has accepted our invitation. Christine also
submitted an abstract for a presentation at the general session and I am
pleased to report that it was accepted. The tentative title is
"Transliterating Newly Available Birth, Marriage, and Death Records for the
Shtetls of Latvia."

As we have done with past invited speakers >from overseas, the SIG would like
to subsidize the costs associated with Christine attending the conference.
Consequently, we have set up a Speakers Account on the JewishGen website and
we encourage you to donate to this account. To access it, please go to the
JewishGen home page at http://www.jewishgen.org/ and click on "DONATE." This
will bring you to the JewishGen-ersosity page. Under the Special JewishGen
Projects list, click on Latvia SIG. This will bring you to the
JewishGen-ersosity-Latvia SIG Projects page, where you can donate to the

How To Solve the Mysteries of my Great-grandmother's life-Need all help and advice #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello All

I have been doing my family tree now for 8 years, but there are still
many things I have yet to uncover. There has been two family stories
that have been circulating for years about my great-grandmother and I
have not been able to confirm as truth. One is that she had at least
two kids that died prior to having my grandmother in 1922. The only
way that could be a possibility is if she was previously married
before, of which I still have not uncovered. My great-grandmother was
born in Mogilev in 1888 and immigrated and settled in Brooklyn-NY in
1911, and was married in 1921 to my great-grandfather. How can I solve
this mystery of these unknown children that she may have had. I
already have her marriage record which does not reveal if she was
widowed previously.

Would medical records or probate documents reveal anything, and how
would I obtain them. As far as I know she always lived in Brooklyn
since 1911, so where would I send away for any court records or
medical records. The other circulating story is that my great-
grandmother was a survivor of the infamous Triangle-Shirtwaist factory
fire, of which to date is still unconfirmed. My great-grandmother at
the time would have only been in New York for about a week when this
event occurred. My theory is that she may have survived a different
factory fire, for I do have a family photo of her in a sewing factory
with other workers of which I am unsure of how to date, but believe it
to be between 1915-1920's. I would love all help and advice with this.

Free New York Times & Census Search #general

Zev Griner <zgriner@...>
 

The Palm Beach County, Florida library offers free access to the
Historical New York Times and the Heritage Quest Census at
http://www.pbclibrary.org/genealogy.htm

Many people post requests for information about people who were
associated with New York City or its boroughs. I always search for
obituaries/death notices in the NYT, as well as graduation
information. Citations are not highlighted on the page, so you have to
search for it.

Heritage Quest is an alternate source for census information. It
apparently stopped digitizing the entire 1930 Census, though. You can
also access the page directly if you know the microfilm series, roll
and page number.

Is there anyone who could please help me by looking up two addresses
in the New York City street directories, 1906 and 1912?

MODERATOR NOTE: The List Israel refers to is a city-directories

Trying to Identify a Polish Town #general

EEllman@...
 

My great-grandfather, Louis Rosenberg, came to New York on the
S.S.Barbarossa arriving on April 27, 1904. His declaration of
intention, filed in 1908, notes he was >from Lomza. However, the
passenger manifest lists a town that is largely unintelligible but seems
to be something like Vasograd.

The JewishGen database would suggest that this town could be
Wyszogrod. As the crow flies, these towns are about 90 miles apart.
I could find little or no information online (JRI-Poland, etc.) to
suggest that he could be >from either place. I welcome any suggestions
someone has, including looking up the manifest to see if I am reading the
town - Wyszogrod - correctly.
