A new project of the Lithuania State Archives includes digitizing
genealogy records "All will be able to find out their family history:
documents that have been published for many years will become public."

The goal is to provide the public, business and other interested
state archive information user groups with unified access to the
sources of state archives information, creating three new interactive
electronic services: Digital Reading Room, Genealogy and Personal

Dear friends

In the past year, research by two dedicated informal teams revealed
the identity of two women who were Jewish babies saved and brought
up by Polish families. JRI-Poland is proud that our database of online
and offline records played a critical role in both cases.

In one case, the search started in 2003, the more recent one in 2014.
While we knew the towns/areas where these babies were born, the
incorrectly ascertained town in the first case and the multitude
of town records in the second made it impossible to even begin
to conjecture their heritage. In the end, it was only through
a succession of DNA matches in the past year - in conjunction
with building family trees made possible by JRI-Poland data -
that the identities of both babies were finally revealed.

Which brings me to the subject line of this post, "DNA tests
are not only important for you! They are vital for Hidden Children"

When family and friends ask "why get a DNA test?" I suggest you
refer them to this article in the Canadian Jewish News. It
stresses that point that many of us have been preaching for
years. (When you read the article, it will be evident why I
am so pleased that I had my own DNA tested.)

https://www.cjnews.com/news/canada/dna-and-detective-work-reunite-hidden-chi
ld-and-family

As I said in my lecture during Holocaust Education Week in Toronto
last year, the reason is not only to satisfy one's own curiosity
about family roots, but because the information could be crucial
to the many people who are trying to recover their Jewish identity,
or find relatives who were lost in the Holocaust. These are often
Jewish children who were hidden or adopted by non-Jewish families
during the Second World War.

I urge everyone...put yourself out there, make it possible for someone,
somewhere to find you just as you want to find them. Dramatic stories
of discovery like this, of establishing anew long-severed family
connections, illustrate how technology provides new opportunities
for those who want to know for themselves and future generations.

Hidden Children born in the years just before and in the early
days of the war are now in their late 70s or 80s. The clock is
ticking for them. They may have taken DNA tests. Have you and your
extended family and friends?

Re: Question re: Immigration Ports of Entry #romania

Chuck Weinstein <cmw521@...>
 

The main reason many immigrants chose to arrive via Canada had to do with
price and convenience. If they arrived in Hull, they often took a train to
Liverpool or Southampton to embark to the US. If the next ship leaving was
bound for Canada, they were assured they could take a train >from the
Canadian port to the US. In my case, family members disembarked in Halifax,
took a train to Winnipeg, and then took a train to Minneapolis, on their way
to their eventual destination of North Dakota. It is not uncommon, in
looking at the St. Albans lists, to see a person who arrived at Halifax, St.
John's, or Montreal, arriving at the US border bound for NYC or Boston, or
other destinations.

Sometimes the lines offered cheaper tickets to Canada. Even with the
railroad ticket, it might be a cheaper way to get to NY or other places.

Question re: Immigration Ports of Entry #ukraine

David Osachy <osachy@...>
 

Hi Everyone,

Can anyone explain (or offer a theory) why a Jewish immigrant coming
from Europe in 1903, whose final destination was New York City or
Pittsburgh, would disembark at the port of St. John in New Brunswick,
Canada, then travel overland through Quebec and enter the United
States at St. Albans, Vermont?

What could that strange route be about? Why not go straight to Ellis
Island? Was this an issue of money, paperwork, or perhaps something
else? If it helps, the ship was the Lake Megantic, which I am
guessing sailed >from Liverpool though I am not sure.

Thank you in advance,

Searching for Shliome Yankel GOROSH in U.S. #general

Rochelle Gershenow
 

Shlioma Yankel Gorosh was born in 1880 in Latvia. He lived with his parents
and siblings in Rezhitza (now Rezekne), Latvia.

On July 15, 1902, Shlioma and his wife, Genesa, arrived in New York on the
Vaderland, which originated in Antwerp, Belgium. The manifest stated that
they were going to brother in law? Berl Brucker. Berl was crossed through
and Ike Kahn was listed instead. Both Berl (Berke/Bernard) and Ike were
married to sisters of Shlioma's mother.

I have tried, with no success, to find Shlioma and his wife beyond the ship
manifest. Since I don't know what first name he adopted in the U.S. I
searched on his surname, Gorosh, and variations of the name. Any help or
suggestions would be welcome.

Translation Help Lithuanian documents #general

Hi All

There was once a man named Hirsch Glass. Born in 1911, he was >from Subacious
Lithuania. In that same year, his father Jankel Glass went to New York USA
intending to send for the family once he established himself there. Sadly he
died shortly after arriving in NYC. Hirsch Glass, during the Shoah most
likely was interned in the Kowno Ghetto, then sent to Dachau, which he
survived. In 1949 he and his wife Esther and their young son Jankel moved to
Australia. They had a daughter in Australia named Bela and another son Max,
and through Jewishgen, Bela contacted me. We believe we are cousins. We are
looking backward in time to find the common ancestral link, perhaps one
generation more, the father of her grandfather Jankel Glass >from Subacius.

We have received some passport application records >from the archives in
Lithuania. Most of them are quite short. Is there anyone who would favor
this project with some translation help? The records are in Lithuanian.
Grateful thanks in advance to anyone willing to help out. The document copies
are very well photographed easy to read.

Please respond privately.

Regards

Joe Glass
