What would your opinions be for the name Ida? What are the possibilites
for Hebrew names?
My grandmother was called Ida in the United States, but her Hebrew name
was Yehudis (Yehudit).
Hi,
My grandmother's name in English was Ida. Her Hebrew/Yiddish name was
Chaya (Chaje on the ship manifest).

Hello,

As far as I know there isn't a single site which dedicates to Jewish
genealogy in a serious manner. Of course JewishGen's site is the sole
exception we all know about. One very good site about Yiddischkeit in
general is Maven:

SSDI Updated - Clues to Finding Your Belarus Shtetl #belarus

David M. Fox <fox@...>
 

The on line version of the Social Security Death Index (SSDI) has
recently been updated through March 2000. It appears that this site
is updated each month. The URL to use this index is:

http://ssdi.genealogy.rootsweb.com/

The index allows you to search for a surname using either he exact
spelling, soundex, or metaphone (am not sure what this is). You can
also search by social security number and a number of advanced search
options. The results of a search will provide:

Name (surname and first name)
Birth Date
Death Date (in some cases only month and year)
Last Residence (ZIP Code, city, county, state)
Last Benefit (Zip Code, city, county, state, where last benefit checks
were sent)
SSN (social security number)
Issued (state where SSN was issued)

There is also a button to click on that will automatically produce a
letter to the Social Security Administration in Baltimore, Maryland,
request an SS-5 Form (Application for Social Security card).
The Social Security Administration charges $7.00 for each form provided.

Some of the information included on the application for a social
security card includes:

Signature of the applicant
Applicants address at time of application
Name and address of employer
Place of birth
Names of parents

With the information obtained >from the data on the web search and the
SS-5, you may get clues which will enable you to search obits, marriage
records, birth and death records, etc. Sometime these records include
the place of birth and this may give you the name of your family shtetl
if other research efforts have not been successful.

For more information about the SSDI please see

Good Luck,

New Database - 1890 New York Immigrants from Austria, Poland and Galicia #general

Warren Blatt <wblatt@...>
 

JewishGen is very pleased to announce a major new database, the
"Index of 1890 New York Immigrants >from Austria, Poland and Galicia",
compiled by Dr. Howard M. Relles.

This is an index to all of the passengers who arrived at the port
of New York by ship in the year 1890, for whom the ship's records
indicated that they were citizens of Austria, Poland, or Galicia.
There are a total of 44,052 such records.

The source of this data is the U.S. National Archives' (NARA)
microfilmed copies of the original ships' passenger manifests,
prepared at the time of embarkation >from the particular overseas
ports: National Archives Microfilm Publication M237, the 18 rolls
covering 1890: reels #543-#560.

For each passenger, this database contains the Surname and Given Name
of the passenger; NARA soundex code; Date of Arrival into New York;
Microfilm Reel Number; Ship's Name; Ship's Number; Line Number of the
passenger in the ship's manifest; and an abbreviation indicating the
"Country of Citizenship": Austria, Poland or Galicia.

Additional information about each passenger may be available on the
microfilmed ship manifest, available at various locations, which are
indicated in this database's introduction.

There is also a supplemental table listing each ship and its date
of arrival in New York, with the corresponding microfilm number,
ship number, and number of passengers.

This new database can be found on the JewishGen databases page
at < http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/1890NY.htm >.

Dr. Relles is currently coordinating the effort to expand this
database by adding the 1891 New York arrivals >from Austria, Poland
and Galicia. Anyone interested in volunteering should contact him
at <rellesh@...>.

You don't say where you are located. I know that our University here in
Beer Sheva has it. One can always order paper copies. They will only make
copies if you have found the page you want copied - they can't do the
search for you.

Hello!

Wonder if anyone knows which libraries that have the journal Hamelitz
on microfilm and if it is possible to order papercopies of some pages?
I'm searching certain advertisements which should be there in some
of the issues.
Hope to get an answer
