Although I prefer to share good news with you, sometimes I have to let you
know of sadness.

Vitalija Gircyte's sister passed away on Friday, January 20 after a lengthy
illness.

Through her work at the Kaunas Regional Archive (KRA), Vitalija Gircyte
has been a member of the LitvakSIG family for a long timeand is personally
familiar to many of us.

Howard Margol writes: "for over ten years, Vitalija was a great friend of
Litvak SIG and a very important factor in getting records in the KRA
translated. For years, she managed the translation process at the KRA for
Litvak SIG up until January, 2011.

Vitalija and her sister were very close. Vitalija is alone now and in deep
sorrow; she has no family."

I'm sure messages of condolence will be appreciated; please use your
discretion in contacting her while she mourns the death of her only
relative. You may contact Vitalija by email to v.gircyte@... or
postal mail to her at the Kaunas Regional Archive, Maironio 28, Kaunas,
LT44249 Lithuania.

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Re: Pre war Lithuanian Telephone Books #lithuania

Ralph Salinger asked, "Where can I see old Lithuanian telephone
books?" Through my website http://genealogyindexer.org, you can
search 1930, 1935, and 1938 Lithuanian telephone directories (Lietuvos
telefono abonentu sarasas), and 1933, 1937, and 1939 Vilna business
directories (1937 and 1939 include nearby localities >from the Polish
Wojewodztwo Wilenskie). If you are not interested in doing a
full-text search across these directories, but only in manually
examining the entries for a few small towns, you might want to jump to
the towns' sections through the lists at:

http://genealogyindexer.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=14 (1930)
http://genealogyindexer.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=13 (1935)
http://genealogyindexer.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12 (1938)

These directories are available online thanks to the efforts of
Michael Gordon, Saul Issroff, Joe Woolf, Andrew Kapochunas, Helen
Katz, and Ann Rabinowitz.

Please note that some Polish directories searchable through this site
include localities now in Lithuania that were once part of the Polish
regions of Wojewodztwo Wilenskie or Wojewodztwo Nowogrodzkie. The
most comprehensive such business directories are probably the
1926/1927, 1928, 1929, and 1930 Poland and Danzig Business Directories
(identified as d21, d22, d23, and d24 on the site). To discover which
Polish directories contain a specific Lithuanian town, search across
all directories for the town's Polish name. (I have not catalogued
which Polish directories include Lithuanian territory.)

Also note that the Vilna and Kovne Gubernias of the Russian Empire are
included in directory d311, called the 1889 Russia, Poland, and Warsaw
Industry Directory.

Citizenship in less than 5 years? #general

bikerick
 

I am trying to find a passenger manifest for a likely relative -- Aran
FELDMAN -- who was naturalized October 4, 1886 in the Superior Court of the
City of New York. I found a manifest (ship -- Kaiser) leaving Hamburg for
Liverpool and then the US on December 2, 1881 that Aran FELDMAN is on. Could
this be the same person -- i.e., could Aran have received his citizenship in
a little short of five years? In other words did the Court check passenger
arrival papers back then to determine if the applicant was being truthful as
to how long he'd been in the country or did they loosely interpret the five
years?

Finding address in the census? #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I am stuck trying to do in effect a reverse search trying to see who lives
at specific addresses in the US Federal Census. I tried the One Step tool
and it gets me in the neighborhood but not in the right blocks.

I am stuck not able to find these addresses. Anyone have any other ideas
how to locate addresses in the census?

I did the mapping and I have locations mapped, etc. Some of the addresses
seem sort of problematic because of changes in the map of Brooklyn, New
York but I know the address and the corner I need to see. I can get to the
street but not the right numbers.

The addresses I am looking for in 1920 and 1930 are:

1091 Hopkinson Avenue, Brooklyn
280 Sutter Street, Brooklyn (this might just be the business)
171 Thatford, Brooklyn
200 or 220 Thatford, Brooklyn

Any ideas how to find those addresses in the Census?

Thanks

Allan Jordan

Lvov house numbers (again) #galicia

Eli Brauner
 

To Henryk question.

In addition to the clear evidence of the 1871 Lvov Address
Directory... I have under hand many dozens of various house
numbers of my family. Obviously if the numbers would refer to
public buildings there would be no diverse mixture of numbers.

Dear Bessarabers,

I would like to update you on a very interesting project we have started
only couple of months ago and moving along very well:

Bessarabia Business Directory - translation/transcription of the records.

A group of our members have already completed many records for some
of the major towns in Bessarabia:
- all of Khotin uezd, including Khotin, Sokuryany, Lipkany, Edinetz,
Briceni, Novoselitsa and many small towns and villages;
- the large town of Bendery;
- Kalarash, Olishkany, Dombroveny, Kaushany.

Many other towns and villages are now in progress;

I would like to very much thank our volunteers Paola Khalili,
Ala Gamulka, and Harvey Kabaker for their great work.

I also want to introduce you to Harvey Kabaker -- a new Project
Manager/Coordinator for the Bessarabia Business Directory project.
Harvey has been working on the project for some time and completed one
of the large districts in Bessarabia -- Khotin.

Very soon the records will start to appear as a JewishGen database
and the JewishGen Bessarabia SIG website.

We still have many pages to transliterate for towns like Kishinev,
Beltsy, Akkerman, and others. Please contact Harvey Kabaker if
you want to participate at < harvey.kabaker@... >.
