KATZ in Zvil [Novogrod-Volynsk] #general

Robert W. Kraft <bobbyalice@...>
 

I am trying to find information concerning the maiden name of the mother of
two sisters >from Zvil, [Novograd-Volynsk]. Her married name was KATZ

Ths sisters names are:
Fanny Katz,b. (c) 1879, [married Wolfe Landa in Dnepropvesk Ukraine]
Dora Katz, b.1881, [married Nathan Posner in Winnipeg Canada]

Both sisters immigrated to Winnipeg Canada c. 1900

(I realize this is a stab in the dark but I have run out of ideas on how to
find this information which would connect families I am researching.)

Re: Source citation examples for PSA/LDS Polish Records? #general

I wonder what would be an appropriate way to cite sources >from PSA or LDS
vital documents (Birth, Marriage, Death) in your genealogical reports.

Can somebody suggest citation examples? We should likely consider different
instances like (1) Database Entry but no actual document produced (2)
Document received >from the PSA or copy >from the LDS microfilm.

and Nancy goes on to point out some of the valuable offline resources
available to those researching their family history.

I would like to mention one additional research possibility that is
often overlooked by researchers working online.

Many libraries, archives, historical societies, genealogy societies and
other repositories world-wide have placed databases and catalogues
online. You are all familiar, for instance, with the wonderful New
York databases for naturalization and other information jointly created
by the New York Jewish and Italian genealogical societies. You also
recognize that a Google search will not reach into those databases; you
have to go to the website specifically and do a search directly within
the databases.

Well, the same thing is usually true for library catalogues, databases
of archival finding aids, smaller databases placed online by historical
societies, etc. You must go to the agency's website, find what
databases they offer, and search directly within those repositories.
Google will not find these hidden gems for you.

Here is but one example (I have e-mailed the researcher privately, in
detail, as well): There was a recent request for information about
the Hirsch Colonies in Canada. One can find quite a bit of information
for starters within the database of the Canadian Archival Information
Network (CAIN), located at
http://www.archivescanada.ca/english/index.html

A general search engine will not reach into this CAIN database. You
must go to it and perform your search.

So, if you are looking for information specific to a locality, remember
to broaden your online search to include the websites of libraries and
archives and societies in that area, and also search the databases of
the national libraries and archives serving that locality. You will
often be pleasantly surprised at what you can find online that is
beyond the reach of general search engines.

Also, don't forget that both published items and records reproduced on
microfilm are often available to you via your local public or academic
library on (yes, even international!) interlibrary loan.

Cheers, and happy searching!

Please help me prove my ancestors did not swim to the US #general

Robin Brown <rkb155@...>
 

First a few confessions:
- I'm relatively new to genealogy (less than a year)
- I'm a lurker...I've been reading these posts for a
while and I'm always impressed with the amount of knowledge and the generosity
of time evident in the posts, but I haven't contributed (mostly due to lack
of knowledge).
- I must come >from a long line of really good swimmers, which is what brings me
to the point of this email. I am hoping that some kind soul can point me in the
right direction. I have been scouring the immigration records and I'm having
trouble finding most of my family. If you folks can't help me, I will
just assume that my family swam here...

The Family:
1. The KOLSKY (KALSKY, KALSKI, KOLSKI) branch came >from Lodz, Poland. My
great-great grandfather, Meyer (1862-1929) (aka Yitzchak Meyer) came to New York
around 1880-1881 with his wife, Rose PARIS (1862-1919). His daughter Bessie
(1879-1968) arrived sometime between 1884 and 1892. Bessie's husband, Pincus
(1875-1943) who is also Meyer's brother (makes for an interesting looking family
tree) supposedly arrived on July 4, 1892. I can't even find a ship that arrived
on that date. Must be the day he climbed out of the water.

The KOLSKY clan changed their names to ROSENBLATT (Apparently the rich people in
the shtetl were named Rosenblatt, so they adopted that name thinking the
Americans would be impressed!), so I have been checking for both KOLSKYs and
ROSENBLATTs to no avail.

2. The KATZENBERG branch came >from Ulanov (Ulanow). My great grandfather, Jacob
(1868-1926) and his brother Sam (Samuel) (1864-1960) arrived in New York between
1885 and 1889. Jacob's wife, Esther BLATT (1870-1931) arrived >from Kolbuscov
(Kolboszower or Kulboszowa) between 1885 and 1890.

3. Max POMERANCE (POMERANTZ) (1866-1916) arrived on July 4, 1882. Ten years
earlier to the date that Pincus arrived, and I still can't find a ship that
arrived on that date. Must be the date he climbed out of the water. I don't
know where he came from/ where he was born, but I do recall my grandmother
saying he was a Litvak. He may have changed his name, but I'm not sure >from
what.. His wife, Bertha GROSSMAN (RUESMAN) (1869-1951)may have come >from Minsk.
She arrived here between 1872 and 1885.

4. Adolph SCHILDER (1862-?) arrived >from Romania somewhere between 1891 and
1900. His wife Lena (1873-?) last name unknown followed 1892-1901.

5. I won't even bother you about the MILLER's. I have so little information
about this branch, that it is more like a twig than a branch. And with a name
like MILLER, without a lot of information, it's like finding a needle in a
haystack. And the BROWNs (my other needle in a haystack) I found.

I have searched the JGFF for these families and added mine to the list.

Truly grateful for any help or guidance, especially since I made a crucial error
-- I waited until everyone who had any information about where the families came
from had past away before beginning to trace my roots. And I never asked the
right questions when they were alive.

overland Jewish migration in the 18th-early 20th centuries #general

GAIL SPIEGEL BILLOW <gspiegel2@...>
 

Dear All,

The Israel Genealogical Society announced that it was holding a One Day
Seminar next November on "The Wandering Jew: Jewish Migration Between
the 18th and 20th Centuries."
After posing questions in an e-mail to the moderator, she suggested I
ask you. Please share whatever you know re:

How did our ancestors travel >from their towns in eastern and central
Europe to seaports (horse and wagon, walk, train, boats on river)?
How long did the trips take? (I know it's greatly varied. I checked
online re the speed of travel of a horse and buggy
http://groups.google.com/group/misc.rural/
The information was 5-7 miles/hour, but I assume it was slower for our
ancestors who traveled with all their worldly possessions and some went
with children and babies. There were also stopover places set up by
steamship lines as well as encounters with the authorities and/or
rogues)
What experiences did they encounter? (purchasing tickets from
steamship lines, cost of tickets - dual train/steamship, passports -
legal and false, need to hide >from authorities if illegal or no papers,
smuggling across border, conditions on train especially if traveling
steerage/4th class on train, affects of weather, where/how slept along
way, victimization by dishonest innkeepers, border guards, swindlers
selling counterfeit tickets, waiting period once reach port, conditions
in dormitories set up by steamship lines)

Montreal records - was: Searching the HIRSCH, WEISLER, TRISKER #general

Alan Greenberg
 

I have responded privately to Frankie, but the JGS-Montreal holds a
large number of vital records for the Montreal record (including some
for Frankie's family). Also, we have a large number of cemetery
records that have been deposited with JOWBR -
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/. We also have records
indicating which burials have floral arrangements, typically meaning
there is living next-of-kin paying for the flowers. These latter
records are not yet on JOWBR - they will be when and if the data is refreshed.

JewishGen is pleased to announce a major update to JOWBR, JewishGen's
Online Worldwide Burial Registry, a searchable database accessible at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/, There are now 689,125
burial records in 1,525 cemeteries and cemetery sections online. The
cemetery section list can be viewed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm.

JOWBR is totally dependent on donations of material >from individual
donors and other organizations who share data with us. Every one of
these donations is important to us, but I do want to point out a few
noteworthy efforts for this update:

-Bruno Segel, Rosanne Leeson, and others entered ~13,200 records >from
Botosani, Moldavia
-Terry Lasky has submitted over 16,000 records for Colorado cemeteries
-JGS of Toronto, Canada has added to this update 13 more cemeteries
and over 8,000 records, for a total of over 29,000 records, almost
all of which have been submitted by Carolynne Veffer on behalf of the
society
-Mathilde Tagger submitted data on six cemeteries in Egypt
-Jewish Cemetery Berg Altena in Curacao, Netherlands Antilles,
probably one of the oldest Jewish cemeteries in the "New World," has
been added, containing 1,217 burial records

Many more individuals and organizations have made important
contributions of data to JOWBR, too many for us to acknowledge here,
and we look forward to adding many tens of thousands records in every
quarterly update with your help. For information on how you can
submit records, see
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Submit.htm and
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/JOWBRinstructions.htm.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact Nolan Altman,
JOWBR technical coordinator, at nta@pipeline.com, or me.

We are in need of Hebrew translators who can transcribe tombstone
transcriptions >from Hebrew to English. Id you can help, please
contact Nolan Altman.

The JOWBR database would not be possible without the efforts of Nolan
Altman, Warren Blatt, Michael Tobias, and JewishGen.
