I did not include my question about town names in my last post. The EIDB
listed the town name as Podhajce. The passenger I am researching is from
the Tarnopol Brezhany area. On the JRI - Poland AGAD/PSA Archives Page
map, I found a town in that area called Podgaytsy. Coud that be the
correct spelling of Podhajce? If not, does anyone know where that town
was?
Sunny,

Town has been known as Podhajce (in Polish) till 1945. It has been changed
to the Russian sounding name Podgaytsy following the end of WWII.

immigration requirements at turn of century #general

marty <marty@...>
 

Hi,

Can anyone summarize the immigration requirements at the turn of the
century?

Specifically, I am looking to understand if having relatives or a
sponsoring family already in the US was an advantage (and a reason to
change one's name)?

Thanks,
Marty

Town Names - more #general

Nadyne Nelson <nadyne@...>
 

I found my pgm on EIDB and now I'm trying to pinpoint her birthplace.
It's on the manifest as Horodno, Lub, Russia and I found a reference at
http://feefhs.org/maps/indexmap.html for Horodno-Lubomi wolynskie GC (the
GC refers to the compiler of the information Greek Catholic church).

What is the significance of 'wolynskie' and how can I find out what the
name of this town is today?

I've been lurking on the newsgroup for a couple of weeks and I'm finding
all of this fascinating and addictive. It's nice to know I'm not alone!

Re: PSA Order Form #general

Avrum Lapin <avrum113@...>
 

I would like to submit a PSA request to Poland. I see that I need
to enclose a "bank or cashier's check." I am trying to figure out
what this means. Can it be a money order >from Wal-Mart (costs 46
cents)? A post office money order (costs 75 cents)? A post office
international money order (costs 3 dollars)? Or do I have to
actually go to a bank and get a bank check (costs 6 dollars!)?

Has anyone had a personal success or failure sending in a cheap
money order?
A Wal-Mart money order won't work - as a matter of fact a Wal-Mart money
order is not necessarily accepted all over the US.

Post Offive International Money orders are only acceptable in certain
countries (the Post Office has a list).

I remember an incident about 30 years ago when the Bank of America wanted
10 days before allowing me access to funds deposited with a Cashiers check
drawn on Chase Manahattan.

I am not sure of the volume of business that the PSA does but they could
increase it by maintaining an agent in the US. Look at the money the DMV
makes by making it easy to buy names.

Naturalizations records in Kings County NY #general

Mindy Fuchs <mindyfuchs@...>
 

A few days ago I requested help on acquiring naturalization records from
Kings County NY. Thanks to those who responded. I found the Kings
County website on this and have discovered that the cost is an
astounding $40.00. Could this really be? Would it be more economical
to get them >from NARA?

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Looking for researchers #ukraine

Francois Chetreanu <chetreanu.thesis@...>
 

Hi All

I've seen in the Discussion Group Archives that Arlene Lambeck Stein,
Patricia Adams, Phyllis Wik and Debbi Korman had ancestors who sailed from
Cherbourg.

As I'm doing a thesis about the Jews which embarked in Cherbourg I'd like
to contact these people but unfortunately their e-mails are not good.

Is there anybody who's in touch with them ?

Thanks
