Find A Grave includes this Cemetery and a few photos. I imagine the ones private citizens have taken and uploaded to the site. Worth checking in case you have good luck and yours is among them.

I managed to locate the full-size document on-line.  Based on the wife's name that I believe is Fannie, I think the initial letter of the ship name is 'F'

You need to search online for a correct possible ship and then go to stevemorse.org to search the Canadian

Requesting your assistance with deciphering the handwriting on the attached Petition for Naturalization for Abraham HOROWITZ, who arrived in New York on 3 June 1899.  The description of the vessel reads in part "...to Quebec and via R.R. and boat to N.Y." but the first two words of the vessel are a mystery we could sure use your help to solve.    With thanks,

Re: Jewish Tombstones Found on New York's Long Island #general #usa

See below

Is there a protocol for discarding a Jewish stone that might have been made in error and not completed?
Perhaps there was a tombstone carver in the area who discarded incomplete/incorrect work  which was then used sold or used for other purposes?

Re: Looking for help to find Polish passport #poland

Jessica Eber
 

The person who helped me was Krystyna Duszniak: http://members.optusnet.com.au/~losthistories/  It was a long process, which I had started on my own, but Krystyna was able to help me when things got messy. She lives in Australia but works with someone in Warsaw who can file the papers in person.

I'm not an expert, but I think the confirmation process is slightly different from the ordinary way to get citizenship, because it is for people who are assumed to have a claim to citizenship (through descent) but have no official documentation to prove it. I don't know all the rules about renouncing citizenship, but Krystyna will know. When I first applied for a confirmation of citizenship, I was rejected because of my father's service in the US army (which is in effect a renunciation of his Polish citizenship), but that was before 1951. Later I applied through my mother's family, and that's when Krystyna stepped in and helped me get the job done!

Good luck!


Re: DNA Tests #dna

Bob Silverstein
 

Let me add to Bernie's response.  In the US, you can upload to FTDNA and MyHeritage but not to 23andme and Ancestry.  GEDmatch has been up and running for about a week now.  I recommend uploading everyone there because you can test against people from 23andme and Ancestry and the tools are much better.  With all those relatives, you might combine blood relatives to formulate a speculative genome for common ancestors.

Re: How to find record listed on genteam.com #austria-czech

Odeda Zlotnick
 

It's genteam.at or genteam.eu [they're synonymous], but not genteam.com.
Whenever you find a record in the overall search on genteam, it has an icon of a page that leads to "details" of the database/s in which the name appears.

Elemir Martinek appears in the database called "Taufindex von Wien" - when you click on the page imager under "details" you will see:





And when you go to the "Overview" you'll find more info about that specific database when you click on

Roman Catholic Baptisms

There's a lot of infromation there, including the following comment:
"The parish registers will be available online in the near future; some are free of charge already partially accessible at www.matricula-online.eu. Thus, the researcher has relatively quick access to the original entries, even though here and there might be multiple entries."

The matricula online database has an English interface but you have to search for Wien, and then on the Wien (i.e. Vienna) page for Währing.
Scroll down to the year 1897, click on the camera icon, and that will get you to: https://data.matricula-online.eu/en/oesterreich/wien/18-waehring/01-43/?pg=1 (first register for that year) and you can then scroll for page 165 - the page number is faintly penciled above the right hand corner of the register.  It is not the number on the navigation screen. A simple trick it to open any page that has a number, and then calculate how many page you need to add or subtract to get to the wanted page in the register.
You will find Elmier here: https://data.matricula-online.eu/en/oesterreich/wien/18-waehring/01-43/?pg=206  in record 676.

Re: US Naturalization questions (more or less general) #general #records

MARLISE GROSS
 

If you find an individual on a Detained Persons list, but not on the manifest itself, you can use the list to locate them.  The list has a column after the name that indicates where they are located on the manifest.  There is usually a page number or letter and then the line.  In the case of damaged manifests, sometimes this list is the only indication that the person was actually on that ship.

Another resource for you to look at for records is the CIty of Baltimore Archives.  They have vital records and City Directories for Baltimore.  I would suggest you contact the Archivist there to inquire about the location, if any, for Baltimore naturalization records that are not on line.  In Philadelphia, the City Archives have the Naturalization Documents from the Quarter Session court, and these are not online anywhere.

I found Itsko Yankel SHEPSENVOL among the Belarus Deaths index and am wondering if his father's name Matus could be equated with Moshe Yoneh. Also, what does the private source refer to in this index?

Thank you,

Re: travel from Besarabia to Hamburg in 1905 #bessarabia

Ricardo Alejandro rubinstein
 

Thanks for your reply, I'm thinking that by that time (1905) emigration might have been organized, probably by the JCA or Baron Hirsch, as thousands of families came from Besarabia to Argentina. So travel routes to get to Hamburg might have been well prepared. Perhaps there are old archives with that information, plans, etc.
Ship or train.
Another way is to ask people living in Izmail if there was ship traffic by the Danube and since when

Re: surname Morpurgo #names

One comment regarding the city Marburg from which the name Morpurgo allegedly is derived. It may not be Marburg in Germany  but Marburg in Slovenia, now called Maribor. 
Slovenia is next door to Trieste and previously both belonged to imperial Austria.

In classical Hebrew  hiss specifically relates to husbands of two sisters. This a narrower definition than modern usage of the word, as brother-in-law.

Re: Russian Website Jewish Roots #russia #general

Stephen Weinstein
 

To clarify what Yelena Volk wrote
Russian Empire included Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine, and Latvia and Estonua and some other contries too
The Russian Empire included only part of Poland.  Galicia, for example, was part of the Austrian/Hapsburg Empire (known in the U.S. as Austria-Hungary).  Records from there are in Polish in Napoleonic format.
