A connection! #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

Great news for me! I was recently contacted by a 11th cousin who saw my
information in the FTJP! He sent me a GEDCOM file which gave me additional
information on the common family-including the parents of the 10th great
grandparents. On looking at the information, I determined we were also 5th
cousins on another line-I gave him some information he did not have also!

Wonderful.

MODERATOR NOTE: An example of why we should submit information to FTJP!


Albany, N.Y. resources on upstate N.Y. #general

David Shapiro <dshapiro@...>
 

A cousin has just joined me in researching our family. Since he lives in
Albany, he has offered to help look for vital records of our ancestors who
lived in upstate New York - Syracuse, Rochester, Watkins Glen, Clinton, etc.

Is there anyone who has experience with archives and libraries in Albany
who can give us some advice on what is available and where, and maybe some
tips how to get good service?

searching: Bert(ram) LEVY -L.I., NY #general

Fred Miller <xacto@...>
 

I am looking for ANY information on Bert(ram) LEVY. American born,
probably around 1900. He lived in the area of Great Neck, LI in the
1950's, had two collie dogs, and worked as a time salesman for CBS-TV
advertising. He was a dear friend of my mothers, and I'm very eager to
find out what became of him. ANY information would be appreciated. Thank
you.

Trying to locate relatives in UK #general

Gailcopela@...
 

I have the names of two cousins in England and know in what fields they
worked. One was an aircraft engineer, the other a cinema manager. Both of
these gentlemen would be in their 60s/70s and presumably retired. What
unions/guilds/associations might they have belonged to (or still belong to)?

I'm thinking perhaps if I can get this information and if either of them is
receiving a company pension or something similar, I might be able to trace
their current whereabouts. If anyone has any other suggestions, please let
me know.

Please reply privately. TIA.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Please provide me with what information you have on the 2) Chertok, etc.
names and the Revision Lists of 1806 forward. We are a large family in
Chicago, Il. with the name Chertow..My grandfather was Chaim Chertow..and
arrived in the USA with his wife in 1906. There is additional Chertow
family in London, England as well as in California. They are all
related. Chaim Chertow had eight siblings..and his parents were Avraham
and Sarah.. all >from Minsk or its surroundings. I hope you can fill in
some of the missing blanks.
This is exciting news. Thanks for sharing.
