this ship sound familiar to anyone? Can someone suggest an

Some possibilities obtained by trying a few prefixes on Steve Morse's

Pompeii or Pompeji
Pampa
Good luck.

Klara KORACH nee KORACHOVA - 18/02/1921-18/3/1996

Ordering vital records #unitedkingdom

suewelsh@...
 

Has anybody noticed that the online GRO site recently changed the information
you need to order records?

In August, I ordered a death certificate. The cost was Pds.7.00, and all I
needed to do was provide the year, quarter, district, volume and page number
which were easily found on a web search of ancestry.com.

Today, in September, it costs Pds.10.00, and I must know the precise date of
death which is what I was searching for in the first place.
I had to make up a date, since the form could not be submitted with the date
of death left blank. Also, there was no comment section, where I could
explain that I didn't have the date of death.

Anybody know a good way to deal with this?

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine NY Death Certificate Question #ukraine

lsaionz@...
 

I just obtained a copy of the 1913 Brooklyn, NY death certificate for
my GGGM, Anna Walerstein, born in the Russian Empire in 1811, possibly
in Kiev Gubernia. (Yes, she was 103 at the time of her
death.) The death certificate lists her parents as David Cohen and
Sarah Levy. The informant was her son, Morris, my grandmother's
uncle. Was there some kind of convention that the names "Cohen" or "Levy"
would be used in the death certificate of a Jewish person in lieu of a
non-existent or unremembered surname, instead of saying unknown? Or is it
possible that these really were the names of her parents?

SHULSKY/SULSKY from Koidanov & COHEN/APPELSON from Slutsk #belarus

Lauren Shulsky Orenstein
 

Hello all,

I just joined the Belarus group (not sure why I didn't a long time
ago!). I am researching 2 lines >from Belarus:

1) SHULSKY/SULSKY >from Koidanov. There may also be an OKUN family >from
the same town, but that has not been confirmed. My ggf, Louis Shulsky
came to New York City in the 1880's & subsequently brought over a
number of family members & landsmen. He, and his sons, were very
active in the shul Anshe Sholom Koidanov. I would love to know if
anyone has a connection to this family as well as anyone who has seen
the name on manifests or naturalization papers as helping someone to
make the journey to the US.

2) COHEN and APPELSON >from Slutsk. My gggf, Morris Cohen came to New
York City around 1895. He was apparently a Torah scribe in Slutsk.
His wife was Ida Appelson. She joined him here in 1900 with their 8
children. I am about to get the names of Ida & Morris' parents. I
would love to find any information about their siblings.

Let me know if you see any connection.

Thanks so much!

Lyakhovichi Website Updated Again! #belarus

Expert@...
 

Dear Siggers,

Over the last several months Deborah Glassman, the Lyakhovichi/Lechovich
webmaster, has been working fast and furious and our website has
exploded once again
(http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Lyakhovichi/lyakhovichi.html ).

Here are just a few stats:

The number of webpages has grown by more than 25% to 230
pages;
The 2,500 images have doubled in number, bringing the total to
over 5,000;
Gravestones pictures >from the New York area have topped 1,200;
These stones have all been indexed by surnames and full Hebrew
names;
Data extractions >from the New York City Death Certificates
(1893-1943) surpass 300;
Names of scores of Lechovichers living in nearby Baranovich,
Kletsk and Gorodische have been posted;
Other names have been retrieved >from Jewish Colonial Trust
documents, World War I Draft records, professional directories, etc;
Besides all that, there are more obituaries, a 1937 list of
midwives in Lechovich and Baranovich, and analyses of mortality rates
from the 1834 and 1850 Revision Lists and of residency changes in other
Revision Lists.

For the full picture, click here for a direct link to the
New section on the site.

In addition, we have not been idle in the ongoing process of translating
original Russian records. 12 more Supplementary Revision files, covering
years between 1858 and 1884 and comprising 2,258 personal entries, have
recently been put on to a searchable database. Click here for surnames
appearing in all these records.

Anyone wishing to have a privileged look at the 1874 List of
Jewish Males in Lyakhovichi and the 12 additional Supplementary
Revision files (1858-1884) should contact me directly.

Likewise, everyone with links to the broad Lyakhovichi region is invited

Re: Conflict in Immigration Date #general

Hi,
Sometimes they didn't exactly remember, sometimes they weren't the
one answering the questions, and sometimes they just made it up.

I had been searching for years for my grandfather's manifest, to
Canada (this was before the data was online). I knew he arrived
around 1906. I found a record of his visiting the US in 1908 (only
two years later!) in which he named the date, port, and exact ship he
and his bfrother arrived on.

Elated, I got the microfilm, and scanned the pages. Three
times. For any similar data, just in case he used a different name. Nothing.

After the data became available online, I found him - on a different
date, and a completely different ship .

Did he get confused or forget? Not likely. For his own reasons, he
flat-out lied.
