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.

VM7425- Search for Sophie SCHWARZ from DRESDEN #general

David Lewin <davidlewin@...>
 

I have placed a picturte of Sophie SCHWARZ, taken in about 1930, and
hope that someone will recognize her.

It can be seen on the ViewMate site (http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate)
in the "To View" section - as file - VM7425

This picture was found in the archives of Dresden, is the only
indication available at this stage that Sophie existed

Sophie is thought to have emigrated to the USA in 1939

Do you know of anyone researching the SCHWARZ family name?

Do you recognise Sophie, or maybe you know anyone else who might have
some knowledge about her and her family?

Please e-mail me at davidlewin@btinternet.com if you can help in any way

Thank you

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?


Thanks in advance,

Re: Lithuanian Vital Records Database is now LIVE #general

Ida & Joseph Schwarcz
 

Esther Malka(Queen Esther) are two names often given together. It wa my
mother's name because she was born on Purim, but many girls were given that
name because it sounds good and is biblical.

Yes, in 1878 it is quite possible that a woman would have borne a child at
17.
Falk is sometimes a diminuitive of Refael but it is also a surname.
Ida Selavan Schwarcz
Arad, Israel

I pretty sure I've just found the birth record of my GGGM, Shaina
VEINER she was born in Panevezys / Kupiskis in 1878. But I would like to
check a couple of things:
1. It gives an exact date in 1878 for her date of birth which would mean
that her daughter, my great granmother was born when she was 17. My GGM
had an older sister Nechama and it would seem unlikely that they would
both be born by the time their mother was 17.

Do you think this is possible

2.It lists the name of the father/grandfather as Vulf Mordkhel, Falk, I
have not come across the name Falk before, is it a diminutive of
something. It lists the mother/grandfather as Esther Malka is this Ester
whose mother was Malka, and no name for the father or maiden name .>>>

Celia -

the question I answered -
> If someone can find this person in Visalia at a free site, please post?

Maybe I was mistaken, but I took that as a request to explain how one can
use public data bases to locate information instead of having to subscribe
to databases which provide this same information at a fee.

I think there are many people who do not know this information is out there,
do not know how to find it, and could further their research if they did.
Knowledge gives people the power to help themselves, and I think that is a
good thing.

Most of the ancestors we are looking for have died a long time ago, but our
ability to find information about them often depends on locating their living
descendants. If we don't know how to begin to do that, we are done before
we start. Whether we like it or not, the information is out there, so we might
as well learn how to use it to our advantage.

As far as the person who was being looked for is concerned - If a person does
not want to be located, I suggest he have an unlisted telephone number, does
not register to vote, or does not get a license to drive a car.

He should not purchase property, join an organization, graduate >from school,
and never allow his name to appear in the newspaper. Also, never use a real
name or geographic location on any genealogy mail board. In other words, cover
up all your tracks so that no one will ever be able to contact you or find you.

I don't think there is double standard going on here at all. This forum is
made up of all kinds of people and over the past few days various individuals
were expressing their own points of view, which are bound to differ.

I really wonder if I am the only one who finds a big paradox/double standards
at play here. On the one hand, there is a discussion on whether someone
should not, reveal the country and/or their town of residence or whether we
should respect their right to privacy. We are not even allowed to give a house
number on this forum.
