Three Steve Morse Announcements #general

Joy Rich <joyrichny@...>
 

Steve Morse has updated his One-Step form that searches ancestry.com's Boston
Passenger Arrivals database. The database now covers 1820-1943, whereas it
previously included only 1891-1943. Steve generated a list of all of the M277
roll numbers and dates to allow access to the manifest directly by roll/frame or
by date using the One-Step "Searching the Boston Passenger Lists in One Step."

He also generated a list of all of the Boston ship arrivals in the 1820-1891
period for the One-Step form that searches for ship arrivals, "Searching for
Ships in the Boston Microfilms in One Step." Both are listed under "Other Ports
of Immigration" at http://www.stevemorse.org.

Steve also just created a One-Step form for searching zabasearch.com. He now has
four One-Step forms capable of obtaining birthday information. The other three
are for ancestry.com, birthdatabase.com, and privateeye.com/peoplefinders.com.
They are the first four items listed in the "Births, Deaths, and other Vital
Records" section at (http://www.stevemorse.org).

Steve also just implemented two new features on his One-Step search form
"Converting Address to Latitude/Longitude." Retitled "Converting Address to/>from
Latitude/Longitude in One Step, " you can now also convert in the opposite
direction - >from latitude/longitude to an address. You can now also convert
more than one address or more than one latitude/longitude at a time by using
Batch Mode. The One-Step is listed under "Calendar, Sunrise/Sunset, Maps" at
http://www.stevemorse.org. At first blush, this may not seem to have much
to do with genealogy, but Steve has found that the latitude/longitude search
tool gets a very large number of hits.

Re: Joseph as a Name for German Jews #germany

buckidstein@...
 

The name Joseph was used by Jews in Germany. In everyday use, there were with
manifold changes, e.g. Jessel or Jospel. Again and again, I encounter this
name since the 17th century.

In Gentile families, the names Maria and Joseph were traditionally given
only by Catholic parents. A person called Joseph was rarely Protestant. As
Joseph was the most common given name in Catholic regions, there was no reason
for a Jew to change this name in order to hide his Jewish origin.

"Middle names" do not exist in German name giving. We have one or more given
names (Vorname) and a family name (Familienname, Zuname).

Hesse region of Germany as well as 2 articles on German Jewish Genealogy research

Given name Schewie/Schowe #general

Elise
 

I have some records with the given name Schewie/Schowe. The first spelling
is >from a Hamburg emigration record, the second is >from a New York
immigration record -- same person. She was >from Kobrin in western Belarus,
born around 1848.

I checked the Belarus Given Names Database and the closest match I can find
is Sheva. Could someone more familiar with Hebrew and Yiddish names please
let me know if you concur or have other suggestions?

Thanks,

Need help on neighborhood locations in Oradea, Romania #general

Leslie Weinberg <artsoul@...>
 

I hired a researcher to obtain records of births for my grandmother and
her siblings in Oradea, Romania, and found out that although there were
only six children I knew of, there were actually eleven births. Five
children did not survive very long. What amazed me was that with
practically every birth, the home address was different. Can anyone
tell me where these streets might be, what type of neighborhoods?: Nagy
magyr Str, Pecze Str., Varalja suburb, Kolozsvari Str, Szent Janos Str.,
Nagy Hid Str, Gyar Str. Was it usual for families to move this often?
Only two children of the nine I have records for were born at the same
address. I am waiting for information on two children born after 1895
whose records are not available because of privacy laws. Thank you,
Leslie Weinberg
