Lithuanian Box Taxpayers Lists #general

Howard Margol
 

<<From: Debra Price <dsprice@optonline.net>
I found a listing for Shaya Fayvush PRUSEL >from Vabalninkas who may
be related. Is this the entire record, or is there more info
available if I contact the archive?>>

Box Taxpayers Lists contain a limited amount of information. I doubt if more
information is in the original record than what you saw in the database.
However, it could serve as good information that will enable the archive to find
other records.

Need Research Help NY City Directories 1900-1910 #general

Sabra Waldfogel <sawaldfogel@...>
 

Can anyone recommend a researcher to look up two individuals (Falick
Novick, Pesach Novick) in Manhattan city directories >from 1900 to 1910?
It's more than a few minutes' effort, so I'd be willing to compensate
someone reasonably for their time and for duplicating/mailing costs. As
a last resort, there's the NYPL Research service, but they seem awfully
steep for a small project like this one... Thanks.

Sabra Waldfogel

MODERATOR NOTE: This sort of request has been discussed in the
JewishGen Discussion Group a number of times. For some helpful
suggestions, check the JewishGen Discussion Group Archives at
http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~archpop
and search for city directory lookups.

British WW1 military service #general

Florence Mitchell
 

The discussion of British military service reminds me that my grandfather,
Jacob Rappaport of Brooklyn, NY (underage at the time), served with the
British army during WW1, with what I vaguely recall might have been called
the Jewish Brigade. I have found his return transport, as well as that of
his older brother William (orig. Velvel) on the Ellis Island site. Out of
curiosity, does anyone know whether there are online records of British
military service >from that time?

Why is it that the burial database does not have cemeteries in Montreal. or

The JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR) does not yet
include listings of specific burials >from these cemeteries. This may be
because nobody has yet volunteered to gather and compile the data,
or because the projects are underway but have not yet reached the
stage of placing data online. For further information about JOWBR,

Naturalisation papers - translation #general

Laura Bennett <laura@...>
 

Dear Genners
I have posted a page of my GGF British naturalisation papers at
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7153. I am
completely unable to decipher the name given as his birthplace, so I
wonder if anyone else will have more success! Family lore has it that he
originated >from Minsk ... but whatever it says on this
record it certainly *isn't* Minsk.

Thanks in anticipation. Please reply privately.

1924 F.A. Cup Soccer Final #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

Based on a family story, one of our relatives, Israel CHORITZ, attended the
1924 F.A. Cup Final Soccer Match at Wembly in London on his way from
Lithuania to South Africa. As this seemed unlikely as the Poor Jews'
Temporary Shelter Record states that he only stayed one day before
proceeding to South Africa, I wouldl like to confirm when the match occurred
exactly.

Does anyone know how to determine when that match occurred? The record I
have states that he was in London on September 24-25, 1924.

It is possible that once I learn the date of the match that it may turn out
that the record was actually for Israel's brother Samuel who travelled
around the same time.

Thanks for any assistance.
