Gruzin-Feitelberg Connection + email for Howard Baker #latvia

Marj Green <marjgreen@...>
 

I am searching for information on Malke FEITELBERG born 1901 in Goldingen
(Kukliga), Latvia who married Aaron David GRUZIN born 1903 in Kreitzburg
(Krustpils), Latvia. They were married in 1930 in Riga, Latvia, where Aaron
David was a hatter.

Malke's parents were Abram Leib FEITELBERG and BELLA SHLACHTER. Aaron David
was the son of Gershen GRUZIN.

If you have any information on these families, please let me know.

In 2003 I received some material on the FEITELBERG-GRUZIN connection >from
Howard Baker, a Litvak SIG member, but no longer have a correct email
address for him. If anyone knows Howard's email or if Howard sees this SIG
message, please get in touch with me privately at marjgreen@mindspring.com.

Thanks,

Re: Birobidzhan #general

Dr.Josef ASH
 

It should be very interesting discussion!

The Flushing library of the Queens Library will present: Birobidzhan:
Stalin's Forgotten Zion Branch.
Created by Stalin in 1928 as a region of former USSR,
It was created in 1934

it was a center of Yiddish language and culture.
It never was any center of Jewish life and culture. In the best years there
were not more then 10% of Jews in the district population, that is, about 10
thousand Jews. I have met several Jews who made alia >from Birobidzhan - they
don't speak Yiddish. Yes, there was the newspaper "Birobidzhner Stern", they
had some kind of Jewish life, but it was far >from being "the center" of.

Nikolai Borodulin, teacher at Birobidzhan Teachers College, will discuss
Jewish life there.
It would be interesting to hear Mr. Borodulin.

New Free UK-Research Database #general

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

For those of you researching ancestors who lived in the United Kingdom,
Ancestry.com, a fee-based service, is currently offering *free* access to a
new (beta) database of the actual images of the birth, marriage and death
indexes--I repeat *indexes*, not certificates!-- for England and Wales >from
1837 - 1983.

http://www.ancestry.com/search/rectype/vital/freebmd/bmd.aspx

The civil registration system for births, marriages and deaths was
introduced in England and Wales in 1837. Registration was undertaken by
civil registrars who reported to the Registrar General at the General
Register Office (GRO) in London, now part of the Office for National
Statistics (ONS).

Getting access to the information on one of these certificates can be done
two ways:

One can use the partially completed FreeBMD search engine at:

http://www.freebmd.org.uk/

This is ongoing project to transcribe the Civil Registration index of
births, marriages and deaths for England and Wales, and to provide free
Internet access to the transcribed records, especially useful for names
before 1900. If you locate the record you want, there is a link to a credit
card order form (approximately $12 per record) and orders are filled in
about two weeks. (The actual record will, of course, provide more complete
details of the event than the index provides.)

Remember this is not yet a complete index yet--work is ongoing--so if you
don't find a record you believe should be there, searching the national
birth, marriage and death indexes, that have been created by the GRO--should
be your next step. The indexes for the three events are each divided into
quarterly volumes, with the names for each quarter listed alphabetically.
Once an entry in one of the indexes is found, you are then able to use that
information to order of copy. The other information that can be obtained
from the index includes:
Year
Record type (Quarter (March, June, September, and December)
District (each county in England and Wales was divided up into registration
districts)
Volume
Page number
Note: Names were entered into the volume of the quarter in which
notification of the event was received, not necessarily the quarter in which
the event actually occurred.

Keep in mind that when you search on a surname, you will not receive a "hit"
for that particular name--as you would searching the Free BMD database--but
will only get the pages in an alphabetical page image that "may" contain the
name you are searching for. If the search name falls alphabetically between
the first name and the last name on a page, that page is returned as a
possible match. You may then view an image of the page to see if the name
you are searching for is on that page.

You must search by indicating year and quarter, so it can be slow-going, but
if you know the approximate date an event occurred you might be pleasantly
surprised. (Remember to search in the months after an event as it might
have been registered late.)

Previously, these indices, on microfiche, were only available (in the US) in
Family History Centers or libraries, but never before online to my
knowledge, so this is very useful, convenient, and *free* resource--no
subscription required--for genealogists.

re saying where you are #general

ac <anitac47@...>
 

I would seem simple to me to solve this problem of revealing where you are:
Why not just say what resources you have searched? If you don't want to
post your location (something I and others had noted was extremely helpful
in advising which sources you might want to search) then just tell us what
you have searched.

I apologize if I offend anyone by stating the following but it would seem
that posters should have more sense to put "I need to find the SCHWARTZ
family >from Minskapinskgubernia" and that is all s/he posts.

I think the moderators should refer those kinds of posts immediately to the
JewishGen FAQs and infofiles (if they don't do so already) and let them
know to post when they can do so with more specifics and after doing some
research on their own. Certainly there are exceptions to every rule, just
as the person who had suffered through identity theft pointed out, but
there are ways of going about things that allow for everyone to personalize
their approach -- say where you've searched and ask for private responses,
for instance, comes to mind.

Victoria Mansion #general

Chuck Printz <cfphrai@...>
 

Dear Colleagues -


As with a previous message, I am wondering anew (last inquiry on this
posted in 2002) if anyone out there has a recollection of a catering
hall by the name of the Victoria Mansion existing in Brooklyn, NY
(Williamsburg Section) at 654-656 Bedford Avenue 1930 - 1948 period?


If so, I'd like to hear >from you with anything you or family members
recall about the owners who were my grandparents
(Mr/Mrs. Sam YARESHEFSKY, see also derivative spellings below).
In the same vein, I would like to hear >from anyone who lived on Bedford Avenue
in Brooklyn, NY during the period 1930-1948, especially if the
names Sam, Sarah, Watso, Esther, or Yetta ring any bells.

This is not the same part of Bedford Avenue that today is commonly known as
Bed-Stuy, but the area further up with townhouses lining the streets.

Thanks in advance,

Odessa Society #general

Chuck Printz <cfphrai@...>
 

Hi Colleagues - In October 2002, I sent messages looking for information
on the Burial Society members of the Odessa Society (circa 1938-1948)
with plots at Washington Cemetery (Section 5) in Brooklyn, NY. I had asked
at the time if anyone had information on the now defunct Brooklyn, NY
Society and could give me information on the Odessa Society (Washington
Cemetery) membership and history. I am looking for anyone who may have
information on the membership circa 1947-48 or even a list of members.

Searching in particular for references to my maternal grandparents (Sam
and Sarah YARESHEFSKY) who are both buried in the Odessa Society section
at Washington Cemetery.

At the time, I received an informative reply >from Peter Lieberman, but he
was referencing a Society (Odessa Mutual Relief Association) with a
similar name and history, but it was located in Queens, NY., so while
informative it still did not answer my questions about the
Brooklyn-based Odessa Society or its members, many of whom are buried
with my grandparents at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY.

Now that even more new researchers have joined JewishGen, does anyone have
any information at this date on the Odessa Society and members located in
Brooklyn's Washington Cemetery?
