Does this ring a bell for anyone? Max and Dina KORMAN lived on or near Wales
Avenue in the Bronx, then moved to Corona or Maspeth, Queens. Dina's mother
was sister to my great-grandmother, Chaya KATZAN/KUTZI GERTZMAN. Please
contact if this sounds familiar.

TOBIAS --Another name for Tulsin, Latvia? #general

Seesiegel <seesiegel@...>
 

I was told that my grandmother (deceased), Celia TOBIAS , came >from Tulsin,
Latvia around 1905. Are there other names for Tulsin? Is it Tolchien? Any
other ideas. I have hit dead ends beyond her (her parents names, etc.) and
am hoping the townname cross reference may help.

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Shvinzian/Svencionys Landsmanshaft #lithuania

steven weiss <szome@...>
 

The Shvinzian Landsmanshaft of Israel published a yizkor in 1965. I
have not been able to find any information on the persons responsible
for putting the book together. I am most interested in finding
information on Heschel HURWITZ who wrote most of the articles. The
Shvinzian yizkor book is 2000 pages (670 for Shvinzian, the rest for 23
surrounding communities). I find it hard to believe that no information
can be had on the history of the people that produced it. Can anyone in
Israel find anything for me?

Thank You,

Steven Weiss

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Weekly update of the All Lithuanian Database (#2) #lithuania

Anne Rothman <aroth@...>
 

Dear Fellow LitvakSIGers;

Well, this is my second update to you. First of all I would like to
publicly thank all those people who have contacted me and are already busy
inputting the Sauliai data. Yes, th previous statement means that the
Sauliai records are now being input. We are making progress. As Davida
Handler stated we will be taking the All Lithuanian Database (ALD) down to
clean up the data that already exists in the database.

When we first started putting record in the ALD we were very new at this
and we put the records all into a few large databases regardless of the
type of record. What we discovered is that this makes searching a bit more
complicated. So we are reorganizing the records to be grouped by type.
i.e. all the birth records will be in one table all marriages in another,
etc. This is not an easy task and it will take time. Please be patient
with us, we all have other jobs and are giving the LitvakSIG as much time
as we possibly can.

If you want to volunteer to help, PLEASE DO!!!! Let me or Davida Handler
know what you can or want to do. We are still looking for inputters and
proofers, especiialy those of us who are not lanuage challenged and can
proof translations.

Thank you for all your support.

Anne Rothman, LitvakSIG Database Manager.

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania 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.

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Port of Departure #lithuania

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)
Edelberg b. 22 Sep 1872, on a passenger list >from Hamburg to Montreal,
saying that he was >from Minsk. I don't know if this was the province of
Minsk or city of Minsk. In any case, I've joined the Belarus SIG to find
out more about Jewish genealogy research in this area.

Looking forward to meeting you all!
