Dear Michael,
ROSEWO is most likely Kossowo. In the Ellis Island site there are 4
Kaplan reports >from Kosewe and 10 >from Kossow (also ends with either
O or A)
I created a page for the shtetl, Latitude: 52=BA45' Longitude: 25=BA09'
Also known as Kosow, Kossov, Kossow, Kosava and Kossuv; Today in
southwest Belarus (near Ruzhany and just east of Brest ). 1921- 1939
in Poland, pre First World War in the Russian Empire;

GREENBERG - what's the next step #general

L A <lisala7366@...>
 

in about 1903 I know my GGF, GGM and Great uncle came
into the USA via the St Albans crossing to Boston by
train. I checked the manifest years ago and found
nothing, I checked again last year and found the same
three people I was looking for but they were called
Greenberg, not Greenblatt. All three matched the
first names. So I knew it was them. I have a couple
questions;
1. Would there be any record to find between Canada and
Boston? The St Albans record I found was a ship
manifest. So didn't they have to do some form of
crossing into this country? The Nat. papers say they
came >from Kishin of Russia, I'm guessing Kishinev.
2. I know they lived in England with a relative
temporarily after they left Kishinev. However this
relative had no children, and their names were Harry
and Rebecca Cohen (might as well be Smith right?)
What do I do now? Is vital records in London and
Liverpool then Kishinev the next step? I checked the
jgen site and found nothing.
Thank you as always for any guidance.

David & Lotty SEGAL, Iasi Romania #general

Bubylu@...
 

Hello,

I just came across a postcard that was sent to my grandfather Nathan Segal
who was at the time living in the United States. This postcard is dated
9/10/1933 and it was >from my grandfathers nephew David SEGAL.
This card is introducing my grandfather to David SEGAL's betrothed whose
name to the best of my ability is Lotty Grieberd or Greuberol or something
similar. I'm sorry but I can't make out the names spelling as well as I'd
like to so I do apologize for this.
The postcard states, "We send you this as a sign >from our part that we are
betrothed and you have relations in Romania to which you write rarely."
I would so love to hear >from anyone who might know or have known or are the
family of David and Lotty SEGAL. Just of additional note that this postcard
is also a picture of David and Lotty and that should make it easier to
identify.
Also, I know that my grandfather and his brothers and sister came >from Iasi,
Romania.

I would so love to hear >from anyone to whom this sounds familiar.

Sincerely,
Lois Segal Friedman

paying for Polish records #general

Eli Brauner
 

Reading the wise advice >from Mark on paying for Polish records, I just want
to mention one more method of payment, which really makes the ordering of
records expensive. It happens when you ask the records >from the archive but
receive them by the Polish Embassy (as a formal record and not a copy of the
record).

Is there a why to avoid this requirement or is it a new rule that one have
to obey?

Dear Genners,
I have found a lost Uncle in a directory listing on Jewish Gen. His last known
whereabouts are listed as Italy. I have been told that people who went to Italy
after WWII were on their way to Israel.

Are there any databases in Israel that list those people who went >from Germany
to Italy to Israel during the years after the Holocaust?

All responses greatly appreciated.

NYC Look Ups #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I am preparing to do a new round of research in New York City at the
City's Archives and the NY Public Library's genealogy room. While a
lot of data has been loaded to the Internet there is still a lot that
you can only access via a personal visit.

During my visit I will have some time to do research assignments for
other people. The types of things I could do is birth, marriage and
death certificates for the time frames that are public; birth,
marriage, death index look ups; NY State Census (1905, 1915, 1925);
Manhattan 1890 Police Census, city directories.

If you are looking for someone to do these types of lookups, please
contact me privately off the list and we can discuss and see if I can
help you.
