My Grandfather was supposed to have attended the
University of Paris at the Sorbonne c.1882-1887.
Does anyone know if student enrollment records are
available for that period? I have written the school
and received no reply, and there seems to be no
information on the internet.
Thanks.

Your New Haven Roots #general

Joseph Fibel <jfibel@...>
 

Dear Martha,

It occurs to me that if you can't find any Census traces of the family that
you knew was there, that they might have been using some other surname. Is
this possible?

Alternately, I would be looking for N.H> City Directories for those years
although I don't know how you would get them in Israel. Here, they are
available in big city and University Libraries and of course the Library of
VCongress and they are also available thru the Mormon Family History
Libraries.

There is also a book called The Jews in New Haven, a publication of the
Jewish Historical Society of New Haven 1978, which Society you might also
contact. This info >from Hal Bookbinder and Joan Rimmon's listing of North
American Community Books >from the Syllabus of the J G Seminar for the 2000
Seminar which has now been transferred to the iajgs.org site and additional
books have been added.

If you know their Synagogue you could contact them also. Maybe somebody
made a history of the Synagogue.

Just some thoughts.

Gorlice Poland surnames #general

Matzoball48@...
 

I am also looking for two more surnames. My husband's fathers last name was
HOLLANDER. He came >from Gorlice in Poland. He and his brother Meir(Mayer)
survived the concentration camps. His fathers name was Herman(Hershel,Yakov
Tzvi). My husbands aunts names were Sara Esther and Chava. His grandparents were
Avaraham Baruch and Hendel. We know they all perished in the holocaust one
of the Aunts was engaged. We are looking for any surviving relatives. My
husband's mothers maiden name was RESNICK. We think her family came >from Poland.
Her mother's name was Chana Shana(Anna Jane). Her father's name we think was
Harry. Harry was married before he married Anna and we believe after he
married Anna. We know he tried to communicate with my husband's motehr
Shirley(Sara) but the divorce was very bitter and Anna wouldn't give her her
fathers letters. We are looking for any half siblings of Shirley and any other
relatives.
Thankyou Tamar Hollander

Re: 2 varients of the same name #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 

In my research I came across a woman listed in family records as Yoora.
When searching Lithuanian revision lists, I found a family with similar
names but there the mother is listed as Yokheved. I have never heard of
a name such as Yoora. What are the chances that this is one and the same
person?


Leah Aharoni
leah25@...
Dear Leah,

I think the chances are high that Yokheved and Yoora are the same person.
Yokheved is a Hebrew biblical name, she was the mother of Moses.
I've never heard of Yoora either, but it could be simply a nickname
for your relative.

I have found my grandparents listed on a ship manifest on the Ellis Island
site, and I am hoping that someone can assist me with some location
information I found there.

1) The manifest says that my grandfather's last permanent residence was
"Wischewetz". I believe that he was born in Rovno, although he gave his
place of birth as Volynhia on his SS-5, and I believe my grandmother to have
been >from Berdischev.

The closest phonetic match to Wischewetz that I have found in the
ShtetlSeeker database was Vichevitsy but that is not in Ukraine. Can anyone
suggest what this town may have been?

2) In the space asking for the name and complete address of the nearest
relative in the country >from which the alien came is what appears to be:

Wolf Weinstein
Berdisijeff Figcluajn afl. Kievskaja ged

Wolf Weinstein was my grandfather's father, and I am assuming that the next
line indicates he was in Berdichev, Kievskaya Gubernia, but if anyone can
help me understand what I am seeing, I would very appreciative - especially
since I am expecting to see Wolf in Rovno, not in Berdichev.

Thanks

Re: How often were people not counted in the census? #general

Debbie:
Try looking at free indexes for the census at USGENWEB. Also, you can try
accessing NCLive through one of the local libraries and look through the
available census images there.

Think about handwriting and how the letters maybe read incorrectly. Gerber
could be Genben, Genber, Gerben, Gerler, Gerlaer, Gerlaen, Genler, Genlen,
Gerlen, Genlaen, Cerber, Cerben, Cenber, Cerler, Cerlaer, Cerlen, Cerlaen,
Cenlaen, Cenlaer. Then look at your keyboard and see which letters are close
to the letters GERBER and fill those in, this way you cover typos as well.
For example "G" could have been typed as R, T, Y, F, H, V, B, or N.

I will note that all online U.S. Census Web sites are not the same. I could
not find the record for my paternal grandparents in 1910 in the "big" Web site,
but could find it in one of those other sites available through my library.
So I'm leaning towards thinking that the record is there, just not properly
indexed.

Re: How often were people not counted in the census? #general

Since the original message concerned Chicago, it might
be helpful to mention that Chicago renumbered their
streets in 1909.

In Rich's case, if he was using a known address >from prior
to 1909, then tried to find that address in the 1910 census,
that might account for the missing address.

Unfortunately, Like Rich, I also think there were a few census
takers who were less than diligent.....

I too have relatives I have never found in the census. In some cases it
turned out their names were so imaginatively misspelled that it was only
luck and wildcards that allowed me to find them at all. If you are using a
service that allows searches on other criteria try using their ages,
birthplaces, or first names.

Knowing the address helps, although not always--in the 1910 census, my
grandmother's entire apartment building is missing. I guess the census
taker quit early that day.

At the risk of using computerese, you must make sure that your computer
is using the latest Java Runtime Environment (JRE) because the viewer
is a Java program that gets downloaded. Make sure you are running
version 1.5

You can see this by opening Internet Explorer and going to the top of

Errors were not only in the early censuses......
A genealogy friend recently told me that for the 2000 census she never
received a form. She called and was told they were all mailed out. She
never received one and consequently her family will not be on the 2000
census. Someone will have real headaches looking for her and her family -
they simply will not be there under any spelling.

volunteers needed for Published by JewishGen Project #warsaw #poland

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Dear JewishGenner's
We have need for volunteers with very specific skills and experience.
Please review this list of
"help wanted" and let us know if you would like to offer your time to the
Published by JewishGen project.

1. Editor and proofreader : This requires previous experience as an
editor because the role can be challenging. It involves editing material
originally written in another language and then translated into English.
The end goal is to come up with a document that maintains the integrity
and style of the writer, but observes basic English grammar. Is this
something you can do while working in a word processing program that
will ultimately be converted to a pdf file for delivery to the printer?

2. Layout editor who can take the above described material and convert it
to a pdf file following the requirements for printing.

3. Graphics editor who will take on the responsibility of designing the
cover of a book, selection of font and style and "look" of the finished product

4. Experienced advertising writer who can provide messages promoting the
finished product, not only to our own constituency but to libraries
that maintain collections relating to the topics of our publications.

If you have an interest and previous experience, please let us hear >from
you.
