find family members under the alternate spelling of WEISTREICH. Has anyone
else have a similar experience and this also expands my request for
researchers.

SPOLANSKY family history #general

JewishGen ID: 169578

Hi:

The past twelve years I have been assembling my dad
Nathan (Nucum) SPOLANSKY’ family history that I had
started with nothing. Today I have assembled 95% of his
records starting >from the time he had been residing in
New York City, untill his death in 1955. in Brooklyn, NY

The problem I am having , Is I can not locate or find any
records of him when he was living in, or when he left
Novamirigrod, Russia, nor can locate his ship’s manifest
that he arrived into the United States on. in 1904

My records start with, copies of Nucum’s Declaration of Intention
dated 1907, stating that he was born in Kherson, Russia 1885
Father Meyor Mother Maiden Name Sussa BARISLOVSKY Sister Riva
and Brother Isruel.

His Petition for Naturalization dated 1912 States, he left Southampton,
England Nov 21, 1904 on the S.S. St. Paul, arrived in the port the of
New York. at age 19 listed as a carpenter..

I have been working with the above information for some time now
with no success

His mother’s and brothers ships manifest state that my dad brought
them over into New York City in 1906 also brought his sister Riva into
Boston in 1906.

I was hoping, that someone might have heard or know of this
SPOLANSKY family or can direct me as how to locate them’

Wish to thank you for all your help
Sincerely Mart
Martin Spolansky.

I am hoping to find someone who is familiar with any variant spelling of
this name.
Dear Diane (and anyone else who wishes to track down a particular
name in any US city):

There's a far more efficient way to do this than by asking members of
this chatroom! You can get all the US phone listings for any surname
you want to track down, at the following site:

http://www.whitepages.com/10583/?source=GO00000001&KW=us_telephone_directory

You can try as many variants of the spelling as you can think of.
In this particular case, both Sack and Sock exist in Rhode Island,
and could be variants of the name Sachs (sometimes spelled Sacks)
(though Sock could also be an abbreviation of Sokolov).

In any case it's a simple matter to try all of those spellings. All
appear in the R.I. phone book and there are five or six entries under
each spelling. All you have to do is type in the surname Sack and
select Rhode Island under "State". and you will have them all. (To
get all US entries for Sack, you select "All States" under "State."

Following this procedure will get you what you want to know far more
quickly than waiting for jgenners to answer your query. Also, many
people (including myself) don't like to give out such information
without asking the person concerned whether they want to hear >from
you; but if you access the phone book as I suggested, you will have
all their names and addresses and can contact them yourself.

Happy hunting!

Re: Moshe Yom Tov PAL and Vilkomir #general

Carl Shuman asks about the Jewish cemetery of Vilkomir. My friends and I
were in Vilkomir (now Ukmerge) for a few hours during a trip to Lithuania
last September. We were given to believe that there is no longer a Jewish
cemetery in existence. The town is not very attractive and was the location
of the only example of present-day anti-semitism which we encountered in 8
days in the country.

International interlibrary loan (was: Re: grave of GREENBERG Al ...) #general

Or, she can contact her own local library to see if there is such a
thing as interlibrary loans of microfilm to a library outside of the US.
There is *definitely* such a thing as international interlibrary loan (ILL).

Interlending of library materials is a service provided by many many
libraries around the world. Most university, larger public, and
research libraries do this as a matter of course for their clients.
Many public library systems will provide ILL services for their
patrons. Often there is a charge for this service, but this is
almost always based on cost-recovery.

Both books and microforms (microfilms and microfiches) may usually be
borrowed >from participating institutions. For materials that may not
be loaned for various reasons (reference works, serial or newspaper
publications, rare materials, materials in physical disrepair, etc.)
libraries will provide reference service out of them; or will provide
photocopies or scans of requested portions, to the extent copyright
laws permit.

Please speak with your local librarian about what interlibrary loan
services are provided by your library. Make sure that the answer you
receive represents the policy of the library system you use, rather
than just (e.g.) the local branch library's policy. Sometimes one
needs to use a main branch to access this service. You do not need
to know where a work is held; your librarian can search national and
international union catalogues, or can call on national ILL support
services in many countries, to locate what you need.

One of libraries' great strengths is a cooperative and collaborative
approach to client service. Interlibrary loan comes out of this
tradition and is a boon to researchers. Take advantage of it!

The 1900 census for Baltimore has Oscar MATZ, wife Feely, children Benjamin,

Maryland. According to the census, Paul, whose date of birth was July 1893,
was the first US born child. Benjamin was also known as Philip. Oscar died in
1919. Feely, who was also known as Freda, may have been Freda KAPLAN before
her marriage. Oral history indicates the family was >from Latvia. Do they
sound familiar to anyone?

Estonian research #general

For anyone searching for records in Estonia, I just wanted to share a
very successful encounter with their national archive.

The archive's website is www.ra.ee. There is an English version,
including a list of regional archives.

I contacted them a few weeks ago for a university record of my g/great
father >from the 1890s. They found the records and all I had to pay for
was the copies ($8 for 25 pages).

If you know the basics (name, record type, and approximate date) try
reaching them by email. Even if you don't have all the information, try
contacting them anyway. They are very service oriented.

Good luck,

A mystery in an Arolsen record found in Yad Vashem #poland

Tamar Amit <tamar.amit@...>
 

I need your assistance with an information card photo >from Arolsen.
I found it while researching in Yad Vashem and all known details such
as maiden name, birth date and place match my great grandmother, Rosa
BECKER born LEVY.

She was born in Tuchel, married and after WW1 moved with the family to
Frei Stadt Danzig, now Gdansk.

One of her daughters had married a German, as a result was expelled
from the family for a few years at least. This daughter, Lotte with
her husband and children lived throughout WW2 and afterwards in
Flensburg near Denmark, very far >from Danzig.

I am wondering why there is a mention of Flensburg when it states that
Rosa died in Danzig. Her daughter's address at the time is my only
current connection. Any suggestions will be welcomed.
