Does Golub feature in there??
It is on the opposite bank of the river.  My grandfather contributed to the building of the bridge ....  

The town today is Golub-Dobrzyn.  Golub changed from German to Polish in 1918.

Hi

The town is Királyhelmec in the old Hungarian county of Zemplén now Kráľovský Chlmec in Slovakia. Kiraly/Kralovsky means "Royal Chlmec"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zempl%C3%A9n_County
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kr%C3%A1%C4%BEovsk%C3%BD_Chlmec
There is more information on the Hungarian wikipedia page:

Attached is the entry for the town from a 1911 Gazette of estates in the Kingdom of Hungary that I had photographed for a project a few years bak.

BBC Reveals Archive on Early Edition of Radio Times #announcements #unitedkingdom

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

The BBC’s new program index includes transmissions from 1923 to the present day.

 

Formerly known as BBC Genome, the BBC’s Program Index now makes the broadcaster’s archive more accessible than ever, with viewers able to browse over 10 million listings, 200,000 playable programs and even early editions of Radio Times magazine.

 

As for copies of Radio Times magazine, the archive boasts some of the earliest issues published in 1923 up to editions released in 2009, including the program listings of that week.  The programming data added to the Genome archive was extracted from copies of Radio Times from each week between 1923 to 2009 before being filtered through optical character recognition technology to recreate schedules for most of the BBC’s broadcast history.

 

To see the program index go to: https://genome.ch.bbc.co.uk/

Searching for Romanian "Brockman" and Russia "Booker" #usa #romania #russia

Karissa Tobin Rose-Gold
 

Hi I am looking for any info on Sadie Booker and Isaac Brockman. Sadie was from Russia, and Isaac from Romania. They married shortly before moving to the USA. As far as I know, they raised my great-grandfather, David Abraham Brockman, Jewish. I have found sparing things on ancestry (manifest and naturalization records), but am hoping to find info on their parents, grandparents and any siblings or distant cousins. I know I have a genetic match with someone who currently lives in Israel from either the Brockman or Booker side of the family, and I'd love to connect (I can do that on ancestry, but if that person just happens upon this message, please feel free to comment).

Thank you for reading,
Karissa Rose-Gold  


Re: Rubbing and take pictures at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY #photographs

Rubbings should not be done under any circumstance, as it will worsen the condition of an already worn stone. Photographs, with proper auxiliary lighting, or wetting of the stone to improve contrast, are best bet.

Re: Tried Everything and Hit a Wall Looking for Grandfather's Naturalization Petition and Ship Manifest Records #records #ukraine #usa

Since you don't know what first name he traveled under, you could search with that field blank. As for the surnames, you could try G?l*nski and G?l*nsky, which should pick up most spelling variations. You'll get a lot of hits, but it's easy to scroll through pretty quickly. For variations on Kramer, you could try Kram*

I've stopped searching by exact date from naturalization documents for ship manifests - too many times the date is off, or the year is off, or even the ship name is off. I only search on the year of arrival, plus/minus two or three years. 

I spent months looking for my grandmother Zivia Kalon's ship manifest. She was mix-indexed as the male Zvi Kalon on Ancestry, and mis-indexed as Iwie Kalon on Familysearch. On her naturalization papers, she had the correct ship (as it turns out, the Kroonland), but the wrong month. If I had just searched for Kalon, no first name, and just 1913 +/- 2 years, I would have found her quickly. She is also the reason why I don't specify gender anymore.

Barbara, thank you for your reply. It is certainly possible that he stated the wrong ship or sailing date, however all of the facts hang together (that ship did leave from the stated port and arrived on the stated date), which leads me to think there is a good chance it is correct, unless he completely forgot all the particulars and just copied them from another person (which certainly could be the case). I have extensively searched for him without the ship name. There are many Harry Kramers, but none of them appear to be the right person. I have also searched under Yitzchak and derivatives. Thank you for taking the time to help. I appreciate it. Mark

Re: Looking for info on great-grandmother's brothers - Resnick #usa

Michele Lock
 

From the above marriage record, Lazer fits with the father's name Eliezer on the gravestone of Jennie.

As for locating the sister Eve - I've usually tried two approaches when I don't know the married name for a sister, or where she ended up living. The first is finding an obituary for Jennie or for her sister Esther Simon. Those obituaries would include the married sister's name, if she was still living. Even if the sister is mentioned under her husband's name and city (for example, Mrs I. Katz of Philadelphia), that still considerably narrows things down. 

The second is to check out Ancestry.com family trees, to see who includes either Jennie or Esther. The good thing about Ancestry trees is that women are entered with their original surname, not by married surname. Someone out there may know that their great grandmother Eve Resnik had sisters named Jennie and Esther, and so you can find Eve that way.

On her way here to the US, Eve may also have traveled here under the first name Chava.

Johanna, thank you your response. I had not thought of contacting the court where the Declaration was filed to see if they have any reference to the petition. I will try that. I unfortunately cannot find him in the 1925 census, despite extensive searching including page by page reviews of the general area in Brooklyn where he was living to see in case his name was poorly indexed. He does appear in the 1930 census, but his immigration date is incorrectly stated as being the same as his parents and siblings, who arrived about 10 years later (they just listed the whole family with the same date). I will follow-up with the court. Thank you again. Mark

Re: Help reading a gravestone #translation

Madeleine Isenberg
 

Hi David,

The pairing of names as in Yechiel Michel happens a lot.  It is almost like Dov Ber, or Aryeh Leib.

Unfortunately, some people misinterpret the Michel part, that is sort of a nickname for the Yechiel, and think that the person's name was Michael.  They are NOT equivalent.

Please contact Miki Liptak (vivit@...) in Kezmarok, Slovakia.

I cannot seem to find my photos, but I seem to recall that in their museum, where they have a section for the Jews who once lived there, there were some pieces related to the Makkabi Games.   Tell him I told you to contact him!

There must be dozens if not hundreds of reasons you can't find a passenger record.  I've learned the hard way how tricky passenger records can be. 
My maternal great-grandmother Dora Zarov sailed with 2 children at the end of 1904. The handwritten entry for the family surname reads Barow. It was corrected in another hand with a Z overwriting the B. But modern transcribers recorded her name as Iora Barow, ensuring that no amount of clever searching, sound-like, etc., for either name would locate her record. I lucked out only because there was another Zarov family on the same ship and their entry is written and transcribed correctly, appearing just below Dora's. 
In a different twist, paternal great-grandfather Mendel Sztejnsapir traveled under a different name. His naturalization petition included the wrong date and name of the ship. A friend found the record by sifting through thousands of lines of manifest records looking for single  males in Mendel's age range. M. Sapier?  Bingo. 
I chalk up my many remaining brick walls, records I'm sure must be there but I haven't located, to similar glitches. Sometimes you get lucky. Sometimes it's a matter of dogged persistence.  Sometimes luck or persistence is not enough to overcome some brick walls.

Gary,

The name looks like WODISKI to me.  I searched Ancestry's NYC directory database for 1922 by using a soundex search.  I found this:

Name:  Morris Wodiska
Residence Year:  1922
Street Address:  2073 Th Av
Residence Place:  New York, New York, USA
Occupation:  Undertkrs
Publication Title:  New York, New York, City Directory, 1922

The address is different, but he could have moved, or merged his business with another.

Hope this helps,

Bonjour Monsieur, j'ai de la famille RESNICK originaire de Biélorussie. Aria RESNICK est né en 1885, sa petite enfance se passe entre LUMINETZ et STOBUKVA en "petite russie". Il a émigré en France et à fait la guerre de 1914/1918 où il a perdu une jambe. Il s'est marié avec Anna Bella née KLEIDMAN qui a été déportée pendant la guerre 1939/1945. Pensez-vous qu'il s'agisse de votre famille ?
