Re: Polish Word: "wnuczka." #general

tom klein <jewishgen@...>
 

Using the Polish-English online translator at http://www.poltran.com ,
"granddaughter" (I guessed, based on the similarity to other words)
translates as the feminine noun "wnucka".

Another useful resource for such words is the "genealogical word list"
(in this case Polish) at familysearch.org (the Mormons). Look under
the "search" tab at "research guidance".

PS. I don't speak Polish.

MODERATOR NOTE: To find the Polish word list at familysearch.org,
click on the "Search Tab," then on "Research Helps," then the letter P
for "Polish."

European emigration site - problematic results #general

Israel P
 

I am having a two-fold problem with a certain municipal European emigration
site, which offers service for pay and therefore cannot be mentioned here by
name.

In one case, they sent me information on one Max Pickholz who sailed to NY on
a ship called Spaarndam, giving me a passenger number etc, but they say they
have no information on when this sailing took place. Not even a year. Is
there a way around this problem? I do not see this man in Ellis Island. Even
a year - if it is >from 1892 - would make a line-by-line search doable. (Steve
Morse doesn't have a search by passenger number.) What makes this even more
curious is that according to Steve Morse's site, the Spaarndam sailed only
from Rotterdam, which is not the port reported by the folks who sold me the
information.

In the second case, they told me that Moses Pikholz sailed to NY on a ship
called Oldham on 31 March 1891, but according to all my inquiries, the Oldham
did not exist until 1897. Does anyone have any way to solve this apparently
erroneous report?

In both cases, I asked the folks at the site to recheck their information, but
all that got me was an invitation to do an expensive personal search.

Bank of the United States #general

Shmuel Fisher <Shmuel@...>
 

The Bank of the United States had many branches. All I believe in New York
City. It was Jewish owned and catered to the immigrants. In 1930 the bank
went under.

I would like to know if there is a list of the depositors all of whom lost
most of their money during the Depression?

Any help would be appreciated.

Corrections to Education Programming at the IAJGS Conference #general

Gloria Berkenstat Freund
 

In my haste to get the news out about the wonderful Education Programming at
the IAJGS Conference, a few errors slipped through.

Here is the corrected information.


The 26th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy holds exciting
opportunities for professional educators, librarians, and would-be genealogy
educators. This is the wonderful line up of
presentations:

* Lifelong Learning: Teach Genealogy to Adults Join panelists Schelly
Talalay Dardashti, Nolan Altman, and Rhoda Miller (and moderator Susan
Stone), who represent considerable experience teaching genealogy to adults
in various educational settings: adult education, community group
presentations, online courses, column writing, in-service for teachers, and
college credit.

* Engage Children in Learning by Teaching Family History Join panelists
Daniel Horowitz, Linda Volin, Ira Wolfman, and William Foster Hayes III,
Ph.D.(and moderator Rhoda Miller), whose broad experience includes teaching
genealogy to children in religious and public schools, authoring books, and
conducting doctoral research. Wondering about William Foster Hayes III,
Ph.D.? Many will know him as Bill Hayes, a star for over 30 years of _Days
of Our Lives_, a regular on Sid Caesar's _Your Show of Shows_, and crooner
of _The Ballad of Davy Crockett_. What does he have to do with teaching
genealogy to children? Come to hear this panel and find out! You will also
have the opportunity to meet his longtime on-and-off screen wife, Susan
Seaforth Hayes, at the signing of their dual autobiography, _Like Sands
Through the Hourglass_.

* Serving Genealogy Patrons: A Librarian's Guide Join Toni Raptis, genealogy
librarian of the Patchogue-Medford Library, the genealogical center of the
Suffolk County Library System. Hear about her innovative ideas for serving
the genealogy public. Not a librarian? Come to learn the best ways to get
librarians to help *you*!

* Are you thinking about teaching genealogy but still a bit unsure?
Hone your skills by attending sessions focusing on methodology.
Simply go to the conference website (www.jgsny2006.org) and search for
programs on the topic of Methodology. You will find a huge array of
resources!
