The VDRG has just received the first 7,240 translations >from the 1875 Vilna
City Family List. These translations will be made available to qualified
donors to this project via the group's NEXO site. Work has begun on the
translation of similar records >from the second volume of the 1875 Family
List, which is only partially funded. We are seeking additional funding to
enable more work to be accomplished. So far there are sufficient monies to
translate another 2000 records. This leaves a shortfall of several thousand
dollars. I am looking for all those who expressed interest in the continued
translation work of Vilna non-vital records to join this project and allow
the completion of this important work. A qualifying contribution to join
this project is $200 although all donations are appreciated. Please contact
me for further details and with any questions you might have.

Just to add to Alexander Sharon's answer:
JewishGen has two town databases which you can research, at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/

The first is for towns which had large Jewish populations; it
is named the Jewish Communities database, at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/Search.asp
(These communities are denoted on JGFF by the purple icon,
which you can click on...and our communities pages have many
links to information about these towns.)

The second is for all the towns, the ShtetlSeeker (click
search for places by name) at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/LocTown.asp

I went to the ShtetlSeeker and put in Porabka...and then
selected the nearby city (Tarnow), and got a list of towns
and their distance >from Tarnow...then its easy to select
Porabka Uszewska populated place....12.7 miles WSW of Tarnow.

Happy Hunting!

Polish Translation Help - 1865 Ciechanowiec Birth Record #general

ewolfson
 

Would some Genner be kind enough to provide me with a basic
translation of this birth record, which may be a late birth registration?
I am looking primarily for information on that, including
parents ages (and whether that is their age at the time of birth
versus registration) and also your take on the name "Merszko"
as it appears in patronymics. Shall I presume this is a variation
on Mowszko?

The image is here (I could not get it small enough to post on Viewmate):

Censuses, Van Es, Woods and now Woolf #general

Marcy Zaslow
 

Hi again:

It has come to my attention that the Wolf family residing at 259 Heath St.
in the 1900 census was that of Alexander Wolf, brother of Catherine Louis
Woolf. Catherine was married to Wolf Decker, stepbrother of Anna/Hannah
Louis Woolf (wife of Charles Woods.) May I editorialize by saying that
this is howling tricky? Anna and Catherine were not sisters.

Kind regards
Marcy Van Es Zaslow

1900 & 1910 US Census #general

Marcy Zaslow
 

Hi:

A big thank you to everyone who sent suggestions regarding the
censuses and locating my grandparents. I will try to view the
differing census versions. That is a great suggestion, especially
with names like Van Es and Woodinsky.

Grandfather Elias Van Es arrived in Boston on Nov 7, 1907. The manifest
said he was going to the home of his cousins Fanny and Joseph Hartog,
where you will find his sister Amelia in the 1910 census.
He was still single as of the 1910 census, sand his future bride was
still living at home with her parents and siblings. Grandpa was a
cigar-maker and it was common for these men to move to take advantage
of a job opportunity. Grandpa did settle in Connecticut and he can be
found on the 1920 and 1930 census, along with city directories, WWI
draft card, death notices, etc. >from at least 1913 on, he lived in the
same town/borough until he passed away in 1957.

Regarding the Woods family, I have bits and pieces. There is a Charles
Woods >from Russia who petitioned to naturalize in Massachusetts in 1902.
If I look at the address, 259 Heath St. on the 1900 census, there is a
Wolf family living there. Great Grandpa Charles was married to a woman
whose BOTH parents had the surname Woolf.(British spelling)
The other bit is that in 1900 there is an English girl by the name of
Flora Woods who is hospitalized; born about 1893 and came to the US in 1890.
One of the children of Charles and Hannah was Bloomer borm the same
year in London.

If anyone still would like to tackle the Woods family, please email me
privately. I will be happy to porvide further details. There are enough
variations on the names both first and last to make one's head spin,
though I hope my patience will pay off in the long run.

Kind Regards

Just to add to Alexander Sharon's answer:

JewishGen has two town databases which you can research, at

The first is for towns which had large Jewish populations;
it is named the "Jewish Communities Database", at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/Search.asp
(these communities are denoted on JGFF by the purple icon,
which you can click on...and our communities pages have

the second is for all the towns, the ShtetlSeeker (click search
for places by name) at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/LocTown.asp

I went to the ShtetlSeeker and put in Porabka...and then selected
the nearby city (Tarnow), and got a list of towns and their
distance >from Tarnow...then its easy to select
Poraka Uszewska ... 12.7 miles WSW of Tarnow

GINANDES documents on Viewmate #general

Mark
 

I am reposting this message with corrections. I was informed that my
e-mail address was incorrectly stated (I blame CRS) and I was hard to
reach. Hopefully this will remove all confusion.

I have posted 4 documents in the possession of a Wolf GINANDES descendent
on Viewmate (http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate)
VM14826
VM14827
VM14828
VM14829
I do not have the originals and these are the best copies I have. The
first is a handwritten Yiddish katuba (marriage document). (I was
informed that this document is actually in Hebrew so I reposted it as VM14840).
The next 3 are some kind of travel documents in Russian. I need the
English translations. I need names, dates, places and other pertinent
information of course, but a complete translation would also be greatly
appreciated, if possible, to help in unraveling the nuances of the
investigation.
