Re: Morse Census Database: Possible Errors #general

Albert Gershman <gershie@...>
 

Just one word about all this. I posted the original inquiry. When all
fails and when in doubt, Jewish Genners have always come through. This
was no exception. I cant tell you how many times my research was rescued
or a missing connection made by a wonderful and unselfish genner. Thank
you all so much for the help. Now the upshot of the results of the 1910
census for that address failed to produce any names for which I was
searching. My elusive grandfather Moshe Begun aka in America as Morris
Bloom failed to be listed nor were any of the others that came to that
address between 1907 and 1910 (Simche, Mottel and Leiser). Probably
moved before the census taker arrived. A final note. I too had the
fortune to compare notes with Mila Begun in our common quest for Begun
from Pinsk. I was saddeded by her passing and will miss her.

Group,

A query was posted yesterday about a 1910 address in Brooklyn and the
inability of the poster to find the proper ED on the Morse One Step
geographical search utility. The genner asked what advice we have for him.

My advice is....***write*** Steve or I directly about the problem.
Given the large number of transcriptions that we did to generate the
databases, errors are inevitable, and we will strive to fix them. If we
don't know about them, we can't do much.

I've answered the poster privately about the ED (>from the original NARA
M1283 table) and am now trying to work through why we don't arrive at
the same number on the One Step Utility.

For those going to the Las Vegas meetings.... if you have such problems
please inform me about them at the meetings. Document the problem so I
can see if mistakes were made and correct them.

Two brothers Listed as One Person #general

hrhode
 

In records >from Lithuania for both my paternal (northern Lithuania) and
maternal (southeastern Lithuania) two brothers are listed as one person. I
don't know why although I assume that it may have something to do with
trying to avoid the Russian draft. I am curious to know how common this
practice was. Has anyone else come across such records?

Could a child be named for deceased father? The answer is "yes." I have such
a case on my family tree. A man was born a few months after his father died
and he was named for him.
