Re: Finding submitters of testimony/Yad Veshem #general

If you find an entry in Yad Vashem, please look at the original
document. It will usually give the address of the submitter at the time
they made the submission.

Yad Vashem will not help you find a submitter. If the submitter lived
in Israel, try this link,
http://www.isragen.org.il/NROS/Research/YVS.html for help.

I am posting this reply publicly because there have been half-a-dozen of this
type of inquiry lately.

I just went into the Yad VaShem database and searched for a submitter named
Gerald Friedman who submitted a page for Betty Klein and in a few seconds the
image of the page came up, including the address of Gerald Friedman in Latin
letters. I do not understand how so many people find their Pages but don't
bother to look at them and copy the addresses.

Re: "Correct" way to enter main name in a tree #general

Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

Dear group,
OK - I'm inconsistent. Mostly I use the birth name as a primary
name, but occasionally I use the name by which the person was
commonly known, especially if the common name was very dissimilar to
the birth name. I'll usually add the common or Americanized name to
the < Name > field. The software I use tries to get me to do that as a
"nickname", but I would rather see the common name right along with
the birth name.
My software also allows me to add "facts" so I created two called
< Hebrew Name > and < Yiddish name >, and I enter those details when
known. (If the difference interests you, check the Discussion Group
archives a few years ago - it's already been discussed.)

Zev mentioned what to do with all the people whose surnames are not
known. I was taught a trick for my software (the most commonly
sold). Example for a woman whose maiden name I don't know: < Sarah
\Katz (nee?)\ >. By typing the surname-with-(nee?) between
backslashes, the person is indexed with the others of that surname,
and the "nee?" doesn't act like a middle name. Cool trick. Note:
there is no space after the first backslash.

Finding someone only knowing their maiden name. #general

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

Is there any way in which one can find a person by only knowing their maiden
name?

On an Ellis Island record I have the woman's name and to whom she was going
in Philadelphia in 1921. It is thought she married a Mr X and had a daughter
called X - yet I cannot fathom a way to find details about her as it is
believed she and her husband moved to Chicago.

I have tried soundex of the supposedly married name but no success, either
in the SSDI and census'.

All ideas most welcome.

Thank you.

Yakov "Cohen" & Nechama-Rachel(nee Eisenthal) Cernivici/Dorohoi #general

Maly & Ofer Cohen
 

Shalom!

We are looking for information about Yakov "COHEN" >from Cernivici
(Tschernowitz, Chernivitsi), Bukovina (now Ukraine); and for Nechama -
Rachel, nee EISENTHAL (AISENTHAL) >from Dorohoi, Romania.

Yakov was born in 1864 and had been living in Cernivici. He was a Cohen
(we don't know if this is his "real" family name). Yakov's father was
Yehudah. Yakov's brother was Shraga-Feiwel. Yakov was practiced as a
Tora scribe (*Sofer Stam*). His nickname was "Yankele Soifer". Yakov had
married and after ten years with no children he divorced and got
marriage again with Nechama-Rachel >from Dorohoi. *This is the only information
we have !*

Nechama-Rachel (nee Eisenthal) was born in Dorohoi, Romania in about
1875. Nechama's father was Asher-Anshel, and her mother was a midwife.
Nechama's brother was Michael-Mechel. She got marriage with Yakov, and
when became pregnant they immigrated to Eretz-Israel. Nechama's mother,
the midwife, followed her daughter and son-in-low to Eretz-Israel. The
three had arrived to the Hauran (the new Jewish settlements) in 1896 and
later settled in the Upper Galilee (Rosh-Pinna). Since then the family
is has been living in Israel.

We don't have any additional information for the family ancestors in
Romania or in Bukovina. We found connections with some Eisenthal
families >from Dorohoi, had immigrated to Israel after WW2, but couldn't
find any real evidences for Yakov and Nechama. For Yakov's origin, it is
very difficult to solve the mystery, as we don't know even his real
family name!

If any of the above names or "story" rings a bell for you, please let us
know!
We will appreciate any additional advice or information, which will lead
to the above persons in Cernovici or Dorohoi.

Many thanks in advance,

Meir Cohen. Petach-Tikva, Israel.

Connecting to distant cousins #general

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

I've written on this before but I'll elaborate:

Several months ago I requested members of this group to put me in touch with
Allen,a distant cousin of mine in Chicago. Within 2-3 days that cousin
contacted me and he updated me on the details of his family for the family
tree I coordinate.

Within another few days I was contacted by George,a cousin of this cousin
(>from "the other side") who was also preparing a family tree of "his side"
and he wanted to include my whole family into his project.

After ongoing correspondence with George (by the way these are all true
first names) he put me on to Dan, an American couple who immigrated to
Israel in the 80's and that their son had married one of my distant cousin
(whose grandparents were in my tree), and he joined the loop of the family
information which was being shared by so many members of the family who
never knew each other before I asked members of this group to help me out
with one cousin (Allen).

As we say in hebrew "kol Hakavod to all of you". (If someone knows a real
english translation of that please post).

Let me clear something up:

I just saw the announcement of this talk at a Queens Library branch in NYC.
I simply posted it as a public service. I have no interest in the area or
knowledge of it beyond rudimentry.

But for those of you who live in or near Queens you can check for the
activities on their website http://www.queenslibrary.org. Queens has a very
large Uzbeki Jewish community as well as Russian Jewish (not to mention
large communities >from all over and every background) so they are always
having something that might be of interest (culturally) to some of us.

In yesterday's issue of the Jewishgen Digest, the following message appeared.

We are proud to announce that the database of Lithuanian vital records is
now live on JewishGen... over 9,000 birth, marriage, divorce and death
records.

These can be searched via the JewishGen Lithuania Database at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Lithuania

The introductory material for this database is at

In my original message sent to the Digest, the name of my co-worker on the
database, Aaron Roetenberg, was included along with my name.
Unfortunately, although Aaron's name was on my post, Aaron's name was left
off.

This has caused me some embarrassment and I apologize to Aaron for the
deletion of his name.
