Carolyn Lea asked ... "if anyone can recommend a book that is helpful in
dating an image based on fashion?"

The genealogy magazine "Family Chronicle"

...
and they have published two books (available at their website) based on
those articles: "Dating Old Photographs"and "More Dating Old Photographs".

burial for 1884 death in Marylebone #general

cecilia <myths@...>
 

What is the most likely cemetery for a woman who lived and died in
1884 in Marylebone, London, and where do I go to look at its records?

(Would the same location apply if she had died in the mid 1850s or
1870s?)

answers to query about immigration to Montreal #general

I received several very helpful answers to my query concerning the port(s)
through which new immigrants to Montreal would probably have entered North
America. Thank you to one and all.

NYC Public School Records #general

David Priever
 

Hello Fellow Jewishgenners,

In early April several fellow genealogists responded to a posting I made on
my continuing efforts to assist in making "Archival" Student Records
available >from NYC Public Schools.

I had made this offer in the past with varying degrees of success in
locating the requested record.

This time around I failed in my attempt to help only due to a situation that
was beyond my control and I was unable to fulfill any of the requests made.

I apologise in advance and hope to be able to personally apologise to all
the people who made these requests at the JGS conference.

Sincerely,

David J. Priever

Re: Access to Lezajsk #general

We have been informed of a new procedure for visitors to
Jewish cemeteries in Poland. It is in place for only a few
of them, but it is advised to phone or fax to be sure of access.
In particular, anyone visiting Lezajsk cemetery in Galicia (south of
Lublin about 2 hours), and maybe other places in Poland, should be
aware that a new procedure is being instituted requiring visitors to
procure a key (for a small fee to help cover the cost of
maintenance) >from the responsible Jewish authority prior to going to
visit these sites so as not to be surprised and upset if the gate is
locked! Apologies to those inconvenienced up to now!
Please contact Ms. Monika Krawczyk at the Foundation for the
Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland for details.

Re: Expulsion of Jews from Galician front lines to Russia 1915 #general

Mel Comisarow <melcom@...>
 

There is some information about expulsion of Jews >from Lithuania to
Ukraine circa 1914 in the book Mendel's Children by Cherie Smith, ISBN
1-895176-85-9. These Jews were traders who had German suppliers and
customers, hence the suspicion of the Tsarist regime.

taken the time to help me. i have added many names to my tree and am in
touch with people i never knew existed.I must have has over 30 responses
and special thanks to Heshel again and again .
I have not had much time lately to work on my tree. But i have been seeing
letters about the court in vienna. My mothers family were among other
things in gold and jewery and designers and my grandfather or
greatgrandfather made golden ducks that walked for the tzar. My mothers
family were >from Nadworner and Stansislwow and Hungry and then moved to
Vienna . My mother told me when she was a child she could make a
watch >from scratch As a child she was given a piece of thread with 7
knots in it and if she could take out the knots she could do anything and
she did. Anyway i have been thinking of asking the room for anything they can
think of to find out about the golden ducks or anybody that had
connection with the court and worked in gold and maybe find more family
which is my main interst The families names on my mothers side were Bergler
Brandner Hass Mausner Seidenwerk and Schneider Banner Dolleng which i am
researching and hoping to find more. After the war my uncle had a jewelery
store in Belguim and his daughter worked with gold in Vienna and without
even knowing that the golden gene seems to run in our family my
daughter worked also in a jewlery store.
Anyway thank you again in advance. Preety soon i will have more people

How do you spell that city's name? #general

Philip D. Roos
 

I looked for the last names of Cohen, Levy and Levie in a city with 3
names: (1) The Hague (2) Den Haag (3) 's Gravenhage. There are almost no
"Levy's" in the database. Over 94% of Cohens and Levies were listed in "The
Hague" and almost all the rest were in "Den Haag."

My grandmother's family register (in Dutch of course) uses "Den Haag"
and "'s Gravenhage" interchangeably. I decided to stick to the former.

I also decided to stick with the Dutch spellings of Province names:
'Noord Holland' instead of 'North Holland' for example but to use
'Netherlands' rather than 'Nederland' for the country's name.


pre 1906 naturalization records #general

Robert Corwin <robert@...>
 

According to the Jewishgen FAQ:
"For a few regions of the country, comprehensive indexes to pre-1906
naturalization records were prepared by the WPA in the 1930s: New
England (all 6 states, 1790-1906) [LDS microfilms]. New York City
(all 5 boroughs, 1790-1906) [LDS microfilms]."

"These card indexes are at the National Archives, and are also
available on microfilm through all LDS Family History Centers."

Can anyone tell me which of the National Archives regional offices
the New England and NY indexes are available at?

Also, according to the FAQ: "Naturalization records >from most
Federal courts are now located at the National Archives regional
branches."

Does this mean the 1906 New England records are available at any NARA
regional office, or only the New England office?

Many thanks,

Robert Corwin
