Wilno Street Address #lithuania

adam1gs@...
 

While reviewing a Yad Vashem Page of Testimony on my uncle, that his
wife had submitted, I was surprised to find a pre WWII address of
Makowa Ul #5. According to a 1935 map of Wilno that street is located
in the Nowe Miasto section of Wilno and is in between Nowogrodzka and
Kijowska Szopen which look like main streets.

I was just wondering if anyone had any knowledge of what that area was
like and the type of people that might have lived there.

Thanks very much.

In the Lithuanian Vital Records Indexing project, Sirvintos (Shirvint) has
NOT been listed in Joel Ratner's updates. This is because we are still short
the funds needed to send the records to a translator. Please send in a
donation. Every amount helps. Contributors of $100 or more will receive
translations as soon as they are proofed and verified.

You can use the donor form link at the bottom of the Digest or email me

marriage record - translation help #poland

TE <tome1111@...>
 

Here's a marriage record >from the Bilgoraj/Josefow area (not sure of the
exact town, Bemora??). The document gives maiden names and is very clear to
read. I could use help translating. Specifically, I'd like more
information on the groom, but enjoy receiving any assistance.

Fbussgang@...
 

Recently, because of my posting about Lodz Books of Residents, I have gotten
several inquiries. Some people write nice notes requesting info that doesn't
take too much time to research or answer and then write very appreciative thank
you's.

However, I got one note not asking but demanding information, and the person
did not have the courtesy to even sign his name. I spent valuable time looking
up the information and sent it to him and never heard a word.

I'd like to suggest that if you write someone for information that you at
least sign your full name and what town you are from, just as if you were posting
a note on the list serve. And also remember that the person who did the
posting doesn't owe you anything, and if he or she takes the time to respond,
especially if the answer requires a little research, a note, not just a perfunctory
"thanks," but how it helped your research, would be appropriate.

Re: FURMAGER/FERMAGER - Thank you! #germany

Carla Montie <swim_mimi@...>
 

A very big thank you to all those >from both the French and German SIGs who
answered my first posting. I think I managed to answer all of you and there
were many.

My knowledge of the of the twists and turns of searching for ancestors has
been greatly enhanced and I have also 'met' fascinating, generous, and very
helpful individuals as a result.

With the various suggestions which I have received and offers of assistance,
I hope to continue scaling the wall and ultimately find the origin of my
family's chosen/decreed name. I know with certainty I would not be able to
do this without all who responded so quickly.

I will close with a short story which a member sent to me with permission to
quote in the GerSIG Forum:

"".. I have a 3rd cousin once removed who's 1/4 Jewish. Because her mother was
1/2 Jewish, she wasn't deported, etc., but she was barred >from having a
job & all her family assets were confiscated, **except** her inheritance from
the Bauer side of the family -- because not even the Nazis could wrap
their heads around the notion that Jews might have been surnamed Bauer, so
they figured it had come >from her gentile ancestors. Needless to say, my
cousin's family did nothing to try to alter that state of affairs...
Sincere and heartfelt thanks,

Hi Harold,

I came across this in a record citing the son of one of the Zvi-Hirsh
BRAUDEs of Kelme (son listed as Jakob-Jonah in family list, but other
records seem to indicate that these were two persons.) Clarification of
