I narrowed it down to two ED's (one of the cross streets apparently didn't exist

living in NY back then.
More than likely, the name of the cross street changed. See this part
of Steve Morse's site for info on street name changes to assist you in
finding the current street: https://stevemorse.org/census/changes.html

Rather than trying to search the census by name, locate the proper ED,
then, as I had indicated to you, click on the ED, which should bring up
an option to view the images on FamilySearch (as well as other sites).
You will then need to advance through the film to locate the proper
street and address. However, if you consult a map & try to imagine how
the census enumerator walked the ED, you should be able to locate the
proper image quickly. As a test, I randomly took a few Manhattan
addresses >from my own database & was able to locate each of them in 1900
& 1910 censuses in just a few minutes (and, coincidentally, saw a couple
of Rosenthals along the way

The 1905 NY census is only visible on Ancestry and I'm not a paid member of
Ancestry, so I can't access it.
Ancestry may be accessed for free at the Richmond Public Library (in person,
not online >from home) as well as the Richmond Family History Center
(5600 Monument Ave).

Searching for "Affidavit for Support" by Herman S. FISCHLER #general

Selma Sheridan
 

Dear fellow researchers,
My cousin told me that her parents, Berl and Lina BEUTEL (or BEITEL) LEMLER of
Vienna, received an "Affidavit for Support" >from a cousin of Lina's mother, around
1938. This cousin, Herman S. FISCHLER (not "FISCHER"), was married and a furrier
in Manhattan - that is all she knew about him. The LEMLERs could not get out in
time, and died in camps. Online, I found Herman S. FISCHLER, a Manhattan furrier.
The only way I know to link him with my family is via this "Affidavit for Support".
(I have not found FISCHLER genealogy records online, or a link to historical
Affidavits.) Any help would be sincerely appreciated. Many thanks!

Website for Lechowitz (AKA Bilohirya) Ukraine #general

Miriam Kirshner
 

For those of you with interest in the shtetl of Lechowitz Ukraine, or nearby towns
like Kremenets and Yampol, take a look at this website:
https://sites.google.com/view/lechowitz. Lechowitz Ukraine now goes by the name of
Belogorye (Russian) or Bilohirya (Ukrainian). This is a completely different town
than the Lechowitz in Belarus, but frequently gets confused with that town. In
fact, vital records >from Lechowitz Ukraine are often lumped into those for
Lechowitz Belarus. Immigrants >from Lechowitz Ukraine often migrated to cities in
the American mid-west, especially Omaha Nebraska, Council Bluffs Iowa, and
St Louis Missouri. Others went to larger cities like Chicago and New
York, or to Palestine.
