How can the margins be adjusted on items posted to this website?

I tried to copy one article posted and it was too wide for both the Portrait and the Landscape orientations.

My friend Charles Olson has found an Extract of a Birth Record for his
father's first wife dated 1898.  He has attempted to translate the
document using Google Translate and also the LDS word list, but he can
not translate the abbreviations.

He would also like to know the purpose of the document.  It was found
with his father's immigration documents.

Found: Grave of Elimelech Schreiber of Stropkov #hungary

Dear H-Siggers,

On September 13, I sought help >from H-Siggers in identifying the parents =
of Elimelech Schreiber of Stropkov (1823?-1891). I made this request =
because at least six trees on ancestry.com (perhaps copying >from each =
other) had identified Elimelech as the son of Salamon and Terez =
Valenstein Schreiber of Papa, Hungary, which struck me as unlikely for a =
number of reasons.=20

I am happy to report that an intrepid researcher, Isaac Kahan of Monsey =
NY, has found and photographed the gravestone of Elimelech Schreiber in =
the cemetery at Tisinic, a town near Stropkov where the Jews of Stropkov =
were buried until about 1895. The stone is chipped in some spots and =
tough to decipher, but the Hebrew date=E2=80=94 27 Cheshvan 5652=E2=80=94 =
corresponds exactly to Elimelech=E2=80=99s death date recorded in the =
Stropkov records (28 November 1891). So this is definitely my man. And =
the stone identifies the deceased as =E2=80=9CElimelech ben Dov=E2=80=9D=E2=
=80=94 or, less likely, =E2=80=9CElimelech ben David.=E2=80=9D=20

Since Elimelech=E2=80=99s first son (born 1842) was named David (1842) =
and his second son (1846) was named Bernat (Dov in Hebrew), either of =
these names might be conceivable for Elimelech=E2=80=99s father.=20

In any case, this seems conclusive proof to me that Elimelech Schreiber =
was not the son of Salamon Schreiber.

My thanks to Isaac Kahan and H-Sig for facilitating this obscure =
discovery!

the spelling is absolutely not hungarian. but it sounds like a phonetic
transcription of "beregszasz", so you might want to start >from there. "techec"
might be the slovak or czech name, but i don't speak those languages, and i couldn't
find anything similar in the gazetteer on bogardi.com.

travel papers #usa #israel

Roberta Lipitz
 

In July 1903, according to copy of Ellis Island ship manifest, my 18 year old Grandmother (Fanny Shore) along with her father and younger sister, left Jaffa, Palestine via ship our of La Havre,  France.  What I am researching is to find any travel papers they might have needed for this journey.  Some information I have is that she was born in either Jaffa or Libau, Latvia.  According to research done with Israel, these documents, if available, might be in Ottoman Turkish.


Any help along these lines would be most appreciated.


Sincerely,

Roberta

Hi
I have two questions.
My Maternal grandparents were married both a First Time with other People before the war. They had both kids. Two sons for my grandfather and two girls for My grandmother. I have the Name of My grandmother’s first husband but Nothing for My grandfather’s first family except a photo of his first wedding (the bride and him on thé photo).
Is it possible to find something about all those first families who died during the Shoah (husband, wife, Kids) knowing that the different acts of wedding are certainly less than 100 years.
If someone could help me to find all those persons, please
Thank you

- my grandfather Ernst Jozef Friedman born in Horodichsche, Poland (Ukraine) sept 15, 1904. Don’t know his first wife’s Name.

Descendants of the region of Bukovina's Jews are trying to make their history known and appreciated. One crowning effort was the opening, a few years ago, of a tiny museum of Jewish culture that is filled with artifacts, photos, and other documentation. (AP Photo/Frances D'Emilio)

Fate/Source of BMD Records for Tysmenitsa #galicia

Yaron Wolfsthal
 

Dear Group,

Tysmenitsa is a small town, just near Stanislawow (less than 15
kilometers apart). I know of no vital record books for this town (where,
I know, there were roots of my family).

In consulting with colleagues, I learned that those records are
considered lost, possibly during the 1939 town capture by the Red
Army. But, thinking about it, I started thinking that the B/M/D events
of Tysmenitsa may have been recorded in Stanislawow. And if that
was the case, perhaps the Stanislawow books would be the place to
look for Tysmenitsa B/M/D events.

Insights appreciated on this theory.
