May I put my 2cents in?

>from what I read this would be a big help to everyone doing research.
I am still trying to find things, and it's like trying to walk in hip
deep mud. (Ever tried that? Not easy.)
This type of searching and help would be helpful to many of us. Many of
us are having problems with proving who we are as our families have
hidden things for so many years. Mine did and it was only passed down
to one person every generation. Lucky for me and all of my other family
members My Grandmother- Grossmutter, known as Mutte. Didn't agree with
that and she told all of us. Without the proof however to take to a Rabi
we are stuck in Mud. (Literally.)

So please if there is a way to compile and simplify things PLEASE can we
do that I will even try to help if need be.
I'm a good at research and going through info. Blessings,

Re: Helene Kenvin's web proposal #usa

Rachel Unkefer <runkefer@...>
 

Several years ago at the beginning of EA SIG, I took tentative steps
toward something of this sort, with a state-by-state directory of
family names being researched by EA-SIG members and research
resources by state. Admittedly we didn't get very far with it, but I
think it would be valuable, as geography is one of the most important
issues in our research. If any of you are familiar with USGenWeb
(actually, if you are not, you should be), that might be a model to
consider--pages for each state where we have active research and then
sub-sites within the states, either counties or major cities with
Jewish populations.

At the moment, I am involved with other projects, so I don't have
time to help with web design, but I might be able to sometime in
2007. Like Helene, I have gathered a lot of information on certain
places that I could share. Also, it might be good to try to
coordinate with the cemetery project to get some of the smaller and
older Jewish cemeteries documented around the country. Links to that
database could appear where appropriate in location pages.

Early American "Shetel Links" #usa

Carole and Jim Early <carjim@...>
 

Having an Early Am. "Shetel Links" sounds wonderful. Many of my ancestors
were here in the 19th century (prior to Ellis Island). Records are spotty.
Some came through NY (KAHN), some to Providence, RI (GERBER), some to South
Carolina ,through NY, (ISEMAN & KAHN).

Re: PERITZ family from Breslau #germany

Rich: [ and all ]
First, please register your interests at the JewishGen Family Finder:

http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/

This is the most powerful tool in Jewish genealogy.
(Anyone who disagrees may sign up for a duel of laptops at 20 paces.
Line forms to the left.)

Once you're registered, you can see who else is interested in the same families.
[They may already have a lot of information collected that they will share
with you.]

A quick search indicates at least one researcher working on PERITZ in Breslau--and
one looking for PERITZ in Wielun. (Hmmm...)

Breslau had one of the biggest Jewish communities in Prussia, later one
of the biggest in Germany. There's much written about it, and much was
written there--it was a center of Jewish scholarship, including historiography.

You mention Ellis Island. Indeed, there are no records >from before a
certain date; but Ellis Island itself only opened as an immigration
center fairly late. Before then the entry point was Castle Garden, on
the Battery at the south end of Manhattan. I believe there are Castle Garden
records on-line--perhaps at one of the fee-based genealogy sites. Good luck!

Can anyone tell me how to find what district the

in?
The Budapest post-1895 Civil Registration films at the
FHC are filed by
district, then broken down by years and type of vital
records. Because
=
there
was no longer a separate Jewish record, the films are
much bigger and
in
most cases, only cover one or two years on each. That
will become quite
expensive if I don't know which district the address I
have is in =
because
I'd have to order them all.

Thanks in advance.

Distinetz, Lithuania #lithuania

Shlomo Yaakov Rapaport
 

1. Can anyone help me find where Distinetz, Lithuania is or was?
Maybe it exists with a different name today?? An internet search on
the JewishGen site and a general internet search, as well as a look
over old and new maps of Lithuania have not helped up to now. My
Grandfather Zalman(Solomon)Reuven Berz was born there in 1884 and
married around 1906-08 to Braine Rokeach of Vilkoviskis (Wilkowisk),
Lithuania.

2. Also if anyone has any connection or knowledge of a Berz family
please get in touch with me.

I have recently been working very hard to expand my family tree and
have been quite successful in expanding it but I have hit a snag that
maybe someone here on this forum can help me with. My Grandfather was
born in Distinetz, Lithuania. This is the way the name of the town was
remembered by his siblings and children and this is backed up in official
papers that he wrote the name after he left Lithuania and is published
even in a number of books published where our family roots and tree are
explored.

Thank you ,
