How to use Google Translate to translate Page of Testimony? #general

Susan Goldsmith
 

Dear Genners,

Is there a way to paste the text of a Page of Testimony into Google Translate
to ascertain a submitter's address written in Hebrew or Russian?

Thank you,
Susan Goldsmith

MODERATOR NOTE: As an alternative, since you are just asking for a relative small
bit of handwritten text to be translated, why not post the Page of Testimony on
ViewMate and ask someone to decipher the address?

New Records on the All Galicia Database #poland

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce the addition of new records on
the All Galicia Database--a database that is free and available to
all. See: https://search.geshergalicia.org/.

This update refers to the Josephine and Franciscan Surveys Project, an
ongoing research initiative of Gesher Galicia, focused on early
population censuses. In the past four years, 52,900 records extracted
from the Josephine and Franciscan surveys were added to the database,
including 5,900 records uploaded this month. To learn more about the
project and to view the full list of 56 towns researched to date, please fo=
llow
the link: https://www.geshergalicia.org/projects/josephine-and-
franciscan-surveys-project/.

In addition, Gesher Galicia members can access complete indexes and
scans for each town after login via
https://www.geshergalicia.org/login/ to Members' Records.

The 2019 Josephine and Franciscan Surveys Project included archival
reviews of 11 towns (records held at TsDIAL, the Central
State Historical Archives of Ukraine, Lviv). The following indexes for
the corresponding years were completed:

** Bobrka 1787 and 1820
** Bolechow 1820

Same person listed on two passenger manifests within ten days #general

Yaakov Saxon
 

In researching my ggrandmother's family, the Taitelbaum's and
Berzhansky's, I came across something quite strange: two passenger
manifests, both listing a Mendel Bersansky, both 34 years old,
married, shoemakers, >from Utien (one says Zian but presumably a
spelling mistake). Both records are >from November 1904:

One sailed >from Hamburg, Nov 5th - 16th.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JNSW-SPK - line 9 in manifest

The other sailed >from Rotterdam, Nov 11th - 25th.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JNSC-WWL - line 2 in manifest

The dates (seemingly) make it impossible for it to be the same person
on both boats.

On the other hand, it seems incredibly improbable that there were two
people with such exact same stats, and in fact I can only find records
of one such person, a Mendel Berzhansky, shoemaker, son of Ezra, born
1871, >from Utien/Utena.

I wonder if anyone has run into something like this before and/or has any ideas.

I have a somewhat fanciful idea, that perhaps Mendel bought two
different tickets, and then someone else, perhaps his cousin's
husband, my gggrandfather Max Teitelbaum, travelled under his name.
Perhaps evading the draft or something similar.

I've also considered the possibility that it was the same person, and
he was rejected the first time, and "snuck back into another line",
but that also seems improbably, as the ship ought to have records of
who was supposed to be on. Also, on the earlier manifest, next to his
name is stamped "admitted", so I assume that means he wasn't rejected.

Can anybody think of a better idea? Is my idea of someone else
traveling under Mendel's name plausible?

Yaakov Saxon

Ps. Thanks for the responses to my earlier post. No resolution of the
mystery yet, but I did get a couple of nice responses, including some
very good info on the Taitelbaum's in Odessa.

Hello researchers who are coming to the conference in less than a week.

My offer for a personal consultation for matters related to
Bessarabia/Moldova is still in place. I already have a number of
people we already scheduled for the consultation, but if you did not,
you still can. Please send me an email.

Bessarabia SIG will participate at Share Fair, and if someone wants to
help at our Bessarabia SIG booth, to greet new comers, to let people
know about our presence at the conference, and more, please email me.
If you can spend 1-1.5 hour at our booth, that would be a very good
help.

DRABKIN in Kremenchuk, Ukraine #ukraine

Hello!

I am looking for any information on the DRABKIN line >from Kremenchuk,
Ukraine. My great great grandfather was born Yudel DRABKIN (1872 -
1938) to Gamshe DRABKIN (a soldier) and Henye (unknown surname). We
believe that Gamshe's father's name was David. Yudel had a brother,
Vladimir DRABKIN (1867 - 1919) and a sister, Sarah DRABKIN (unknown).

Gamshe DRABKIN had a brother, Samuel Leib DRABKIN who married Pera
DRABKIN (1849 or 1860, Mogilev or Kremenchuk. Her maiden name was
DRABKIN).

Any information on the Ukranian DRABKIN family would be much
appreciated. I learned recently that everyone with the suranme DRABKIN
/ DRAPKIN comes >from a single person >from Mogilev in the 1700s. Rumor
is that he had 17-19 children, which was heard >from many DRABKIN /
DRAPKIN lines.

Searching SKLENARIK, nee FRIEDMAN #romania

Véronique Chaudanson
 

I had sent a message last year regarding Bernat FRIEDMANN born in 1906 in
Cliciova or Cluj, as I am trying to find some information about his family
for his descendants

It turns out that, according to some official forms filled by Bernat in
1930, he had a sister still living in Romania at the time, born in 1902 and
called Bertha, married then to a SKLENARIK. At the question, in the same
questionnaire, about the whereabouts of his siblings (in his case only his
sister) between 1914 and 1919, Bernat mentioned that "she was in Serbia".
We do not have any further information about her, and Bernat's living son,
born about a decade after the form was filled in, had never heard about her
existence until very recently

What else do we know? According to the same file, Bertha and Bernat's father
(Josif FRIEDMANN) had died in 1914, their mother (Eugenia WIENERBERGER or
approaching last name) in 1920. Bernat had lived in Lugoj >from 1914 to
1917 where he attended school and was probably staying with a family (name
and address known), then in Timisoara where he went into apprenticeship (two
names and addresses available), then to Craiova >from 1921 to 1922, and
finally Constanta, >from 1922 til he left Romania for ever in 1923, with a
few months spent at Steaua Romana in between (was it a location and not only
a company name at the time?)

I haven't found any information online about a possibly matching Bertha
SKLENARIK nee FRIEDMANN: Any hint or idea about where to look would be
welcome!

Thank you

born about a decade after the form was filled in, had never heard about her
existence until very recently

What else do we know? According to the same file, Bertha and Bernat's father
(Josif FRIEDMANN) had died in 1914, their mother (Eugenia WIENERBERGER or
approaching last name) in 1920. Bernat had lived in Lugoj >from 1914 to
1917 where he attended school and was probably staying with a family (name
and address known), then in Timisoara where he went into apprenticeship (two
names and addresses available), then to Craiova >from 1921 to 1922, and
finally Constanta, >from 1922 til he left Romania for ever in 1923, with a
few months spent at Steaua Romana in between (was it a location and not only
a company name at the time?)

I haven't found any information online about a possibly matching Bertha
SKLENARIK nee FRIEDMANN: Any hint or idea about where to look would be
welcome!

Thank you
