Surname of ZELAT #general

Allen Kurtz
 

My Fellow Researchers,

I recently encountered the name of a family ancestor on the Gombin
(Gabin, Poland) Book of Residents. She is listed, in a transcription
of the record, as Chana ZELAT. In other records she is listed as
Chana, daughter of Nawtali Hodys. I am somewhat puzzled by the name
Zelat. Perhaps is it a variation of names derived >from the Polish
word for gold (Zlot, Zlat). I have pondered other names found on
various databases including Szlat, Szalat, Szlott, Szlajt and others.
I have thought that it may be a corruption of the surname Zoladz
(acorn in Polish). I have also thought that the name might be a
transcription error.

Does anyone have any other thoughts on the surname Zelat?
Could it have any other meaning that would attach the word to
a given name and found after that name?

Thank you in advance for your wealth of knowledge and willingness
to share the same.

A caution regarding use of 1790-1880 US Census sheets #general

Stephen Katz
 

Anyone researching people or families in the United States should be
interested in an article in "Vita Brevis," an online publication of
the New England Historical Genealogical Society (NEHGS).

The article, "A game of Telephone," was written by Lindsay Fulton,
NEHGS Director of Research Services. She points out that the
original census enumerations >from 1790 to 1880 were copied
two or three times, with one copy filed with the county and
another with the federal government. The census sheets filed
with the federal government, which are the ones that are today
viewable on microfilm or on genealogical websites, were in
some cases the originals and in other cases the copies; and
there are sometimes differences between the information on
an original sheet and on its corresponding copy.

The article provides some tips to determine whether a particular
sheet being examined is the original or the copy.

The article may be accessed at

Dear coleagues,
I am searching for the birth certificate and the emigration papers of my
father Owszija CZACKIS, born in September 1909 in Kremenets, who arrived to
Buenos Aires, Argentina in Nov 1928. Unfortunately, the Mormon records stop
at 1905, and I am told that in Kremenets I´ll find no administrative papers
from the Polish times.
I´ll appreciate any comments on the subject

Weekly Feature: Yizkor Book Spotlight #austria-czech

Groll, Avraham
 

Dear Friends,

Beginning this Friday, we will resume posting a brief spotlight
from a Yizkor Book that JewishGen has translated. As many of you
know, the Yizkor books contain vivid accounts of topics ranging
from communal daily life, to the struggles faced during the darkest
days of the Holocaust. If you are not familiar with the JewishGen
Yizkor Book Project, please click here:
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/faq.html

The spotlight will be posted weekly on Friday mornings, at 7:00 am
(EST), on our facebook page. You do not need to be a member of
facebook to view this page. The url is: www.facebook.com/JewishGen.org

I would like to thank Mr. Bruce Drake (Silver Spring, MD), for
volunteering his time to do this each week. Mr. Drake has been involved
with JewishGen since 2006. He is currently coordinating the translation
of the Kovel, Poland Yizkor Book (more details here:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/projectdesc/yb_kovel.html)
while also overseeing the Voynilov, Ukraine KehilaLinks site
(http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/voynilov/voynilov.html).

We hope that these weekly spotlights will provide a greater
understanding about the lives our ancestors led, and grant a more
profound appreciation for the heritage we share as part of the
broader global Jewish community.

If anyone would like to reach Mr. Drake directly, with comments or
suggestions for future spotlights, please email him at:
bdrake100@....

Wishing you all the best of luck with your research.

Avraham Groll
