What does the word Von in front of a name mean? For instance Von
Shlieden.

I believe it means "From" and is (or at least was) a sign of German
aristocracy when it appeared in a name.

<<From: Adiva Bloch <asb4205@...>
I received the following letter >from the Lithuanian State Historical
Archives and I don't know where to go next:
"Thank you for the message of June 21, 2005 in which you make inquiry
for the birth records of people >from Lithuania. We are not able to help
you with the birth record of Jankelis Blacheris born in 1902 in Seta. We
have checked the birth records of Plunge Jewish Community for the period
1910-1913, but could not find the birth record of Raze (Roza, Rauze)
Rostovskaite (Rostovski). We have checked the birth records 1854-1857
of Seredzius Jewish Community, but could not find the birth record of
Hyman (Khaim or Chaim) Press. We regret that we were not able to help
you in your matter."

Does this mean I have hit a brick wall? Can I not find out (especially
about Raze and Jankelis) who their parents were? I am not sure where to
go or what to do now to find this information.>>

Since the Historical Archive is eleven months behind on research of Jewish
records, you are fortunate to receive a response in two months. You only
asked the archive to search for vital records. I suggest you request a
search of all types of records, particularly revision lists, family lists,
etc.

Responses to Queries #general

RENEEP8546@...
 

I have been following the discussion about courtesy with interest; I
have always tried to answer every response at least personally.
Recently, however, I have sent e-mails through the FTJP querying the
person who put their info online. I received a helpful response >from one
person, and am most appreciative. Another, although the date of the
information was recent, never responded. I even re-sent it thinking they
might not have received it. Again, no response. At the risk of invoking
an old joke, I assumed that someone who went to the trouble of putting
information online would be interested in communicating with others who were
interested.

Thank you for listening (or reading).
Cordially,
Renee Payne

Best approach to determining port of entry to US #general

Howie Axelrod <highwind1@...>
 

What would be the best approach to determining where a specific person
entered the US? What documents (death certificate, etc.) would be of
the most asistance. It seemed that my Great Grandfather spelled his
name, both first and last, no less than 7 different ways. I have had
no success using Ellis Island records using various spellings, and
what I believe is his departure town to no avail, and will use
[a commercial site - name removed by the moderator] at the local lib. on
Friday to search Baltimore, Boston, Philadelphia, etc.

This failing, what documents would be most helpful, if any?

*Wow*, was that fast! I got back a bunch of info on Ellix GERTCHIKOFF. More
than I even asked for. I've already thanked my wonderful "cousin" for this.

Now, I need a website for maps. I want to look up Ellix's hometown of
Dobrianka Mogilov Russia. Any help I can get would be fantastic.
