Re: Port Klaipeda and Riga passsports #lithuania

Judith Diamond <j.diamond@...>
 

I have heard that revision lists recorded people by the place that they were
registered - sometimes even if they had moved elsewhere.
My hypothesis would suggest that perhaps they therefore needed to return to
that original place where they (or the family) were registered to get a
passport.
I dont know if there is any evidence for this suggestion.

Port of Departure #lithuania

Sigma Alpha Mu Fraternity <sammy@...>
 

In reply to Norman Feldman's query of Fri, 9 Oct 1998:

My grandmother's family lived in Silale, which is located southeast of
Klaipeda (Memel) between Telsiai and Taurage. Members of her family
emigrated >from Silale to the United States on five separate occasions
between 1913 and 1924. While it would seem more logical to have used
Memel, in each case, they went overland to Koenigsberg. >from Koenigberg,
they traveled by railroad or coastal steamship (the method varied) to
Hamburg, Bremen, or Copenhagen, where they embarked for direct passage to
North America.

This does not prove whether or not Memel was used as a port of departure
for emigration, since the information is anecdotal. It suggests, however,
that there may have been reasons to use ports other than Memel, since, in
the case of my relatives, they were utilizing another Prussian port but one
located farther than Memel >from their hometown.

The question whether Memel was used as a point of departure has been asked
many times on JewishGen during the last five years. In my research and
reading during that time, I have not come across anything to suggest that
Memel was, if fact, used as a port of departure. Indeed, everything that I
have seen suggests that Libau and Koenigsberg were more likely points of
departure, although I have not seen an adequate explanation therefor.

Hi,

My name is Michele Chavez. I just found my great-grandfather, Max (Mottel)

Minsk or city of Minsk. In any case, I've joined the Belarus SIG to find

Research Advice for new year #general

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

It is the new year, 5759, and I would like to offer some unsolicited advice
to Jewishgenners embarking on research using research services in the
former USSR. Make sure to get written, unambiguous confirmation of what
research you are paying for. If you are doing limited research for a
limited amount of money, make sure they acknowledge that in writing. Also
make sure that they confirm that they will contact you before taking any
unauthorized research steps that may involve additional money. You will be
saved >from undue aggravation!

International move (off topic) #hungary

Margarita <uzidog@...>
 

Dear H-siggers:

Some of you already know that I'm leaving Argentina to move back to USA.
Because the date is nearing, I thought I should tell all of you that I will be
off-line for some weeks.
The computer will be packed at the beginning of November and I have no idea
when I will be able to connect it again once we arrive in Denver, Colorado.
My e-mail address will follow me, so no need to change it. :-)
I wish all of you a happy hunting.

Searching: WEINER/VINER #general

Serge Elfassi <selfassi@...>
 

Hello,

My mom is a holocaust survivor who lost her entire family in the war.
She had a massive stroke in May 1997.

The only pictures of my mom and her family were sent to her aunt Rivel
AMLUSKI SUTAN (sp?) in New York >from Vilna.

Rivel and her husband had a daughter named Chipa. Chipa married Avram
WEINER (sp?) a bookeeper in New York circa 1920. Chipa and Avram had a son
named Hessel born circa 1925.

My mom has spoken about those photos of her family often. I would love
to locate this family and hopefully the photos for my mom. It would mean so
much to her (not to mention me, as I've never seen pictures of my
grandparents, aunt or mom).

There are a gazillion people named WEINER in the world, most seem to
be in New York.

If anyone has any suggestions as to how to locate this family and the
photos,
please let me know. I would be very grateful for any info or leads.


Thanks,
