Trouble Finding Grandfather's Ship Record #general

Seth J. Bookey <sethbook@...>
 

My grandfather came to the U.S. with his mother and a younger sister and
brother in either 1902 or 1904. His older brother, Chatzkel BUKI, is shown
coming to the U.S. in 1899 and the ship record is v v accurate in terms of
his age and town of origin. Chatzkel's ship record shows him going to his
father's Delancey St. address,the same address his father had in 1896 when
he became a citizen.

Meanwhile, I have not founda ship record for my great-grandfather, who
came in 1894, and nothing for his wife and three other children. Census
records clearly show thee different dates of entry in the country--1894,
1899, and 1902 or 1904 for the other three.

Now, there is no citizenship paperwork for my grandfather, his mother ,or
siblings, I assume, because back then, my great=grandfather's citizenship
was conferred tothem upon arrival, right?

I have never heard about their ship passage; I am assumng they came to
NYC. That's the only place my great-grandfather lived. The family name in
Poland was Buki, and was established as Bookey in 1896 on the citizenship
record.

Any ideas on how to find the other entry records, for my greatgrandfather
Chaim and the other three (Yente Rachel, Samuel, Flora, and Joseph)?

Where is Brastele Austria? #general

Linda Shefler <linsilv@...>
 

Chag Sameach to all!
I am in need of some help; my relative Samuel REICHER immigrated to
Cleveland, OH in 1904. On the ship's manifest he gave his last place of
residence as Krakow. On his Petition for Naturalization in 1915 he lists
his place of birth as Brastele Austria.
For the life of me I can't determine what or where Brastele is. Does anyway
have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

Kobelyaki records? #ukraine

Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

Dear group,
My family comes >from Ekaterinoslav. I've just found a record which
leads me to believe my great-grandmother may have been born in
"Kobelyaki / Kobeljaki". According to ShtetlSeeker, there is a
Kobelyaki 186 miles ESE of Kiev. (There's also a Kobelyaki 126 miles
ENE of Minsk, but the Kiev city seems the likelier choice).

Of course, I'm interested in the availability of records >from the
Ukrainian Kobelyaki, but it's not in the Roots-to-Roots database,
which would tell me which archives carry the records, and which records exist.

Does anyone know anything about records for Kobelyaki - location,
which records exist, and are they obtainable? The city is in the
Poltava oblast which has its own State Archives; is that archives
open to searches?

Thanks!

Passports issued in Galicia #galicia

Åke Bardach <akebardach@...>
 

Questions about passports issued in Galicia

My ancestor Hirsch SCHAPIRA had a passport issued on 6th July 1859 by the
Governor of Galicia. At one registration of the passport his name was
written as Hirsch SCHAPIRA but in October 1862 the name was written as
Harsch SCHASURA.

Registrations of both alternatives were made by Finnish authorities. Finland
was at that time ruled by Russia and the registers were kept in the Swedish
language.

My questions: 1) I assume that the passport was written with the Latin
alphabet but in which language would it have been written?
2) I assume that the passport was issued in Lviv
or could it have been issued elsewhere?
3) was a passport required at that time for
travelling between Galicia and Vienna?

Zionist Congress Voter Lists - Kolomyja #galicia

Alan Weiser <alanboy@...>
 

While conducting a search for Kolomea/Kolomyja/Kolomyya related
documents in the Central Sate Historical Archive of Ukraine, two
Kolomyja voter lists were discovered for the 18th and 19th Zionist
Congresses, 1933-1935. If you would like to have your surnames of
interest searched in the list contact me directly. Provide SURNAME(s)
and FIRST NAME(s) and your name and email address. The 18th Congress
list only has surnames and first names. The 19th Congress list has
surnames, first names, and addresses.

Surprising, at least to me, is where these lists were found. They
were included in documents of the Regional Shekel Commission for
Eastern Molopolscha (Small Poland). This Commission was established
in Lviv on May 22, 1930. The aim of the Commission was to distribute
to the Jewish population a shekel ( special Zionist collection which
was equal to about 1.5 Polish zlotys at the time). According to a
decision of the first Zionist Congress in Basel/Basle, Switzerland a
person could be called a Zionist if the person recognized the Basel
Program and paid a shekel.

According to a web site
(www.jewishvituallibrary.org/jsource/zionism/firstcong.html) the
established Zionist platform (Basel Program) in 1877 stated, "Zionism
seeks for the Jewish people a publicly recogized legally served
homeland in Palestine." This web site has reports on 1st (1877) to
12th (1921) Zionist Congresses.

If anyone can add information about the Regional Shekel Commission,
please provide whatever facts or stories you have. References to web
sites, books or other sources are welcome.

KALUSHEVITZ / TZIGUTCH from Lowicz #poland

Nachum Tuchman
 

Dear List,

I have recently obtained a marriage record for my maternal
grandfather's parents, and my GGGF's death record, both >from Lowicz,
Poland.

I have found that my GGF Uszer LIBERMAN (born-1861 - died-before WW2),
was the son of Abram LIBERMAN (1811-1876) and Chana Mindel, nee
KALUSHEVITZ. Chana Mindel was the daughter of Binyamin.

My GGM Yetta (Sarah Ita) (1864-c1942, died or killed during the shoa),
was the daughter of Liebush TZIGUTCH and Yachata.

I will add the names KALUSHEVITZ and TZIGUTCH (which I'm sure neither
are spelled 'correctly') to the JGFF. In the meantime, is there
anyone researching the names KALUSHEVITZ or TZIGUTCH? I didn't seem
to find anything on the JRI-PL.

This is the first that I have seen these names, and I have no other
information on them.

SSA Request for Original Soc. Security Application (SS-5) - need advice #general

Howie Axelrod <highwind1@...>
 

I am planning to request my Grandmother's SS-5. Is it better to get a
scan of the original, or get an extract, or both? Does the original
provide more, less, or different information than the extract?
DOB is 1886 and DOD is 1972.

Perhaps the question is rudimentary, but various reference sites
(including SSA), provide contradictory information.

Also, I am told that it can take up to a year to get the request
processed! I can't wait that long.

As such, is this available (indexed )) at FHL or NARA? I live near
both.

MODERATOR NOTE: There is a Social Security Death Index (SSDI) which
provides *some* but not all information. There are links to online
versions of the SSDI at http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/faq.html#Vitals .
