ITS research #general

Hannah Berliner Fischthal
 

Yad Vashem and ITS will only search specific names, not (for instance)
all appearances in specified locations. And the index can be searched
only alphabetically, not by location. There are professional
researchers who will search through the ITS Index in Yad Vashem.
I have been talking to someone who does this and will be happy to tell
you more offlist.

One other possible source is the ITS records. Go to the US Holocaust Museum web
site and find this source. There are millions of records on holocaust victims
there.

I am aware of the great number of camps that existed, and that families were
frequently separated. Where does one find documentation >from camps that can be
researched?

NYC naturalization archives #general

Jim Gutterman
 

italiangen.com has a form to mail in to National Archives in New York
and they mail back copy. Assume you have petition # at least. Look at
itialiangen index to get appropriate data and court. It's only like
7.50 for a copy (more if you want it certified) and they respond
pretty quickly

where my gf Yitzchak EBER was born. Any ideas of what the correct
place name and where this town could be? I've tried JewishGen shtetl
finder with variants but had no success. Thanks for any suggestions.

JGSLA August 2 Program: "One Foot in America" #general

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

Straight >from his appearance at the IAJGS International Conference on
Jewish Genealogy, Erwin Joos, curator of the Eugeen Van Mieghem Museum
and President of the Eugeen Van Mieghem Foundation in Belgium, will
reprise his fascinating conference lecture at the next meeting of the
Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles:

One Foot in America: The Jewish Immigrants of the Red Star Line As Seen
Through the Eyes of Eugene Van Mieghem (1875-1930)

Monday, August 2, 2010 at 7:30PM

Martin Luther King, Jr. Auditorium
Santa Monica Public Library
601 Santa Monica Blvd. Santa Monica 90401

Come learn the story of the mass emigration of Eastern-European Jews
from Antwerp to American ports between 1873 and 1934. Of the 2.7 million
people that were transported by the Red Star Line 50 percent were Jewish.
Some of the notable immigrants were Irving Berlin, Golda Meir and Albert
Einstein. Special attention will also be paid to the Jewish writers who
described their emigration experience >from Antwerp: Sholem Aleichem and
Yuri Suhl. The Antwerp artist, Eugeen Van Mieghem, is probably the only
artist in Europe who made a cycle of works of art about these Jewish
emigrants. He lived in his parents' tavern in the Montevideo Street just
in front of the warehouse of the Red Star Line.

The JGSLA traveling library will be available starting at 7PM. This
meeting is open to the public and free of charge to all.

Palenesky #romania

tolpolar@...
 

When researching for passengers of the ship Konig Friedrich August that left
Hamburg in 1912 to the final destination of Buenos Aires, I found a possible
relative who was born in the town of "Palenesky", supposedly in Russia/former
Soviet Union. I did an initial google search and nothing came out. I tried
different spellings, but nothing too relevant came out either. Has anybody heard
of this place, or a place with a similar name? Any suggestions?

Thank you,

Lithuanian Translation Help-Viewmate #lithuania

Dear Litvaks,

I am hoping that there is someone who can read and translate some small
Lithuanian items. These are small snipets >from my Aunt's 1949 Internal
Passports. I have been able to translate a lot of the print and script
using a Lithuanian -> English on-line translator but the script is a
little more difficult to do.

I have posted the following items to Viewmate:

Chaje FINK, d. NYC, 1894 #general

Lisa Grayson <lisa@...>
 

I have a copy of a New York death certificate for Chaje FINK, b. Russia
about 1827-28, died Feb. 3, 1894, in New York City. Her last address was
337 Cherry Street. I would be glad to e-mail a scan the certificate to
any Genner who is searching for records for this person; this will save
you the $18.50 fee for ordering it >from the NY archives. (I ordered the
certificate for the wrong Fink.) Please reply privately.

Town Name like Sacsisne? #general

Stephen Denker
 

On July 20, 1913, my grandfather's brother Zadok EBER came to my gf in
Connecticut. The ship "Kursk" manifest states in one box that his residence
was "Sacsisne (Minsk Gub)." But in another box it is spelled "Zacsisnoje"
I've tried but failed to come up with anything like this town name. I
assume it is somewhere near Borisov (Barysau) where my gf Yitzchak EBER was
born. Any ideas of what the correct place name and where this town could be?
I've tried JewishGen shtetl finder with variants but had no success. Thanks
for any suggestions.
