One of the twelve tribes of Israel is named after a son of Jacob, Gad.
However, in Asknezi this is pronounced "God".

My trip to Eastern Europe #general

Sue Keller <casakeller@...>
 

I recently returned >from my Eastern European river cruise. It was fantastic
and I learned a great deal about Eastern European Jews while gone. I was
unable to visit the synagogue in Vienna because of lack of time. I did visit
synagogues in Belgrade, Budapest and Bucharest. The one considered the most
beautiful in the world is the Choral( they spell it Coral) Temple in
Bucharest. I visited it and I agree that is incredible. Few people at the
temple spoke English so I could not obtain any information there. However,
I managed to get to the town in Romania that my father came from. It's name
is Podu Turcului. While there we ( a driver and translaotr were with me)
went through the very overgrown Jewish cemetery. There were only a few
headstones which were legible. Most were in Hebrew; 90 % were so
weather-worn that very little could be read. The translator also helped me
find out a contact name for finding out more about the Jewish archives
there. If you are interested in the contact, please write me personally.
There are no Jewish people left in Podu Turcului ( pop approx 1000 ). We
did meet an elderly man who remembered that when he was young there were two
"respected" Jewish families in the town. He said that one family owned
something like a candy store where he would go to buy candy. I would
recommend that anyone who plans to visit Romania, or other Eastern European
countries trying to find out about their family histories, hire a
translator. It is definitely worth it and make finding things out much
easier. Also, it appears that there is a vibrant, growing Jewish population
in Budapest, while the number of Jews in Romania is almost nil (.01 % of the
population). I hope my adventure has helped someone else! Sue Keller

I am seeking the identification and location of cousins on my mother's side
of the family. The surname would be either BEREN or possibly BIRIN. I have
viewed gravesites of the family outside Dankere (now called Gostini.)

I am a cousin to Beren families in Dankere on my last journey to
Latvia. And I have Beren cousins here in the United States.

Re: Brooklyn Naturalization #general

phylliskramer1@att.net <phylliskramer1@...>
 

Robert Corwin asked about researching Bklyn Naturalization...this is a
difficult topic, and a few thoughts come to mind ...

First, some history...
(a)the immigrant coould naturalize in any court he selected...near work,
near home, near the army post.....
(b)prior to 1906 or so, the naturalization papers will likely have only
the immigrants' name, address and the country/ruler of prior citiizenship.
There are some exceptions....
(c)there are 2 different sets of courts that the immigrant could use for
naturalization:
1. Federal or "district" courts...for example, the NY "Southern" and "Eastern
District" courts .
2.Local, State or County courts...with various names, like "county court" or
supreme courts, or courts of common pleas.
(d)the Naturalization process was standardized by the Federal Govt. in Sept,
1906. The WPA microfilmed and indexed pre-1906 nat’n records for Maine, Mass,
NH, NYC; the originals are at NARA; these did include the LOCAL courts. The
LDS family history centers have this series of microfilms (M1674 series,
1792 - 1906 Nat’n Petitions Filed in Federal, State, and Local courts in NY-
all boros) Again, most of these records have little genealogical information.

Now for the databases: Most are only Indexes. Please remember that indexes
often have much less information than the original records -- the declaration
of intent and the naturalization petition. When researchers go to their local
libraries, many of which provide access to Ancestry; look at those online
indexes in addition to those at www.Italiangen.org. The latter, however,
offers better database descriptions, and a vehicle for ordering the documents.
When we did the indexing for the NY JGS/Italiangen project we keyed the data
from the ledger book indexes, not card indexes.
Confusing? You bet. and if anyone has a more recent, or better information,
please post it to this discussion group. It is especially pertinent given the
August conference.

Good luck with your search....

Tracing a Common Name #unitedkingdom

STEPHEN COHEN <meylercohen@...>
 

Over the past few years, I have read with great
interest and also frustration, the desire of many
people to trace thier family roots. One thing, >from my
perspective, is that they all have one thing in
common, namely the families they are searching for all
have names which shall we say are not that common.

My question is, how does one search for relatives
whose name is COHEN? and landed in the UK and USA at
the turn of the 20th century.

Cheaper Fares from the Baltic: Why Latvia? #ukraine

MARC M COHEN <marc-cohen25@...>
 

Sorry for the lateness of this reply.

One factor to consider is that for much of the 19th and early 20th
centuries, the least expensive fares >from the continent of Europe to
the USA and Canada were >from the Baltic or Black sea ports of Hamburg,
Danzig, Riga, etc., on North German Lloyd Steamship line. It has been
overshadowed by all the publicity for Ellis Island, but in many years,
Boston was the 2nd largest port of entry to the USA and Portland, Maine
was the 4th (after Philadelphia or Baltimore). Both were served by
North German Lloyd, and the least expensive ticket to the US was
typically a Baltic port to Portland. The same goes for Canada -- Halifax.

from the 1860s, Maine developed a substantial German-Jewish population,
followed later by Russian/Eastern European Jews who all landed in Maine
and stayed there. Despite the harshess of the winters, it was paradise
compared to Poland or Russia.

I have Barak relatives >from Khotin, Bessarabia and Storozynetz/Chernovitz
who arrived in Halifax and Kantorji relatives >from the same origins who
arrived in Boston.

Hope this helps,
