I always start with AT&T (was SBC) white pages first. They seem to be the most

Then Superpages. www.superpages.com

And if all else fails, pull out the telephone and use some of the free 411
services. 1-800-FREE-411 or 1-800-411-METRO

For those who might write back, that the Metro number has too many digits, you
are right, but it works or you can leave off the "0". However, I have much better
luck with Free-411. Most of the times I have called the Metro number I get a
message stating that "all circuits are busy, call later".

Re: Need help tracing real property...Brooklyn, NY #general

The correct place to search in the City Register. They have an office in
each county. There may not have been any Court intervention in the sale or
transfer of the property. Do you know the block and lot number or the address?

Hello, Dear Colleague Genners!

As we all know - many issues trouble us during the genealogy research of
our families, and many thoughts often arise. Usually, no one else (excluding the
members of this and similar mailing-lists, of course ;-) can truly understand
our deep feelings regarding our research.

After years of telling ourselves what bothers us and what makes us happy
(genealogy-wise), we've gathered in order to tell it to the world.
Actually, it's only a way of telling it to ourselves, but it's public...
:-)

We're now blogging (in Hebrew) our thoughts and feeling regarding our
genealogy reserach and genealogy in general. The blog is not meant to be
informative, but rather, a place for all of us to know that we are not
alone with our feelings.

It is, of course, free to read and comment. Feel free to surf to the new

Re: Question about LEVIN #general

Eric Svirskis
 

After all these year I remembered: in my Habonim Days (a long time ago) I
went to a camp near Levin in New Zealand. I asked my madrichim but was told
that it was not "Jewish". The Jewish population at the time was about 5000.

For those researching LEVIN, answers.com says that the town was named after
William Hort Levin, a director of the Wellington and Manawatu Railway before
it was integrated into the government railway system in 1908.

A piece of the jigsaw that I hope is of help to someone.

Tombstones Cyrillic / Arabic #general

Edward Potereiko <edwardp@...>
 

I am trying to get more tombstones translated, trying to find any clues
whatsoever. Some stones are illegible to me, but perhaps someone with Arabic
abilities, and or cyrillic, may be able to see words and letters and make sense
out of them where I can't. These are stones of Polish/Tartar/Moslem/Turkish
immigrants >from Eastern Europe around the turn of the 1900's who settled in New
York and are buried in Maple Grove Cemetery, Queens, New York.

Any assistance in deciphering (legibility issues) or translating would be
greatly appreciated.

VM 9138 (Image 1222) Appears to be completely illegible to me. Stone may be on
it's side, broken. There appears to be a "v" laying on it's side at the bottom
of the image along with a "J.M" at the lower right. Can anyone make heads or
tails out of this ?
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=9138

VM 9139 (Image 1223) Combination of Cyrillic & Arabic or Turkish or Tartar?
tombstone. Star and crescent at top - Turkish or Moslem?. It appears the
surname is Shabanovitz (in English).
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=9139

VM 9140 (Image 1224-1) Is anything legible to anyone on this stone ? To me it
just looks like a pattern; however there is some lighter areas that may be
Arabic script, legible?
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=9140

VM 9141 (Image 1225) Cyrillic lettering, fairly legible, perhaps not completely,
on this tombstone.
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=9141

VM 9142 (Image 1226) Appears to be a year of 1917 with a surname of
"Shabanoviche" Star and crescent on top, with some Arabic or Turkish script
that may or may not be legible. Perhaps some cyrillic, same thing, legible?
Anyone make out full name and date of birth and date of death? Do I have
spelling right?
