The use of Google in Jewish genealogy #general

Allow me to take exception to the Moderator Note attached to Allan Dolgow's
message to this Group on April 22, 2006, namely:

"Google does not produce many results of use to Jewish genealogists."

On the contrary, there isn't a day that I don't research that web site.
Results have been fantastic.

MODERATOR NOTE: I was referring to this particular posting. All listings are
cross-checked when an Internet reference is mentioned, for accuracy. Similarly,
a moderator sometimes adds a note referring a writer to archives, previous
digests or, as in this case, I did a Google search. Many such requests lead to
multiple responses directing the questioner to a particular website. I have also
used Google, daily, for many years and did not mean to generalize.

1926-1930 Polish business directory search improvement #poland #warsaw

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

When searching the 1926/1927, 1928, 1929, or 1930 Poland and Danzig Business
Directories at www.kalter.org/search, search results are now organized
according to geographic region (e.g., Wojewodztwa Tarnopolskie, Wilenskie,
Wolynskie, etc.). This should make it easier to identify relevant results
when many matches to the search term are returned.

Best regards,

A marriage document for two people with childen born twenty years before #warsaw #poland

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

Has this happend to anyone else? Two days ago, I received a marriage
registration >from 1874 in Warsaw. It states that the groom is 60, as is the
bride and that they have children born in 1853 and 1857. I am assuming that
is the formal state registration of their marriage (which actually took
place somewhere before 1837, because I have another document for the birth
of a daughter in 1838).

Do try variations Treper-Trepman-Treperman #warsaw #poland

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

Luckily my mother-in-law had marked on a document or two, Treper-Trepman.
This enabled us to collect documents indexed on JRI-Poland for the two names
and see that the names were used inter-changeably (is there such a word) in
the 19th century. Last month I took a chance and ordered a document for a
Treperman. I thought, if they used both Treper and Trepman, maybe one used
Treperman. The document arrived and after a sketchy translation, I found
that Gersa Treperman was born about 1814 in Warsaw and his mother's name was
Sprincza daughter of Layzer. This matched the year of birth (it can't be a
coincidence) of Hersz Trepman (Also between Russian and Polish Gersa can be
Hersz) born in Warsaw in 1814, whose father is Kielman, and I know from
another document Kielman's wife is Szprinca. I now have 3 definite children
for my husband's ggggrandfather, which means 3 different branches.

JGS - Hamilton (Ontario, Canada) & Area - Wed, April 26 Meeting #warsaw #poland

Ina Levitt-Yanover
 

Offered by
Jewish Genealogical Society- Hamilton & Area
Wednesday, April 26, 2006
7:30 PM to 10:00 PM
Location: Temple Anshe Sholom
215 Cline Avenue North, Hamilton, ON

Every week, people around the world suddenly discover their Jewish
roots.
Peter Jassem's lecture will reveal the reasons for the involuntary loss
of
Jewish identity after the war and provide examples of reconnecting to
Jewish
roots, and the psychological and practical consequences thereof.
Examples,
including Peter's own experiences, will illustrate the methods used to
trace
one's Jewish roots and how their discovery evolved. Peter's presentation
will also encompass ways of searching for lost relatives, whether
Holocaust
survivors or their descendants living under an assumed or imposed false
identity.

Raised as a Christian, Peter Jassem suspected that his roots were
Jewish for
some time and was able to confirm this in 1995. During the following 18
months he located 1500 names of Jewish ancestors or relatives. He
became an
active board member of the JGS of Canada (Toronto) and is now on the
board
of JRI-Poland, Gesher Galicia and the Canadian Foundation for Polish
Studies. Since 2002 he has served as president of the Polish-Jewish
Heritage
Foundation of Canada. He has written articles for genealogical
newsletters,
lectured on genealogy and participated in various projects. He was the
program chair of the 22nd IAJGS International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy, Toronto, 2002.

Please join us for this presentation Discovering Jewish Roots of People
raised as Non-Jews. Admission for non - members is $5 which will be
applied
when joining in the same membership year.
