I'm surprised the moderators didn't add as an informative moderator's note as
they sometimes do to postings, in this case, information about Steve Morse's
site under Ellis Island on JewishGen:

Missing Manifests
Direct Access to Ellis Island Manifest in One Step

There you will find:
"The links in the Ellis Island database to many of the scanned images of the
original manifests are either broken or missing (see the 400-series questions
on faq page). "
and it will give you information on how to find the missing manifest.

Shalom,

This is a paid service but seems reasonable to me for what you get. You may
have to guess on names and/or go systematically go through the alphabet or
birth year, etc. You can do much of the searching to identify possibilities
without paying.

Dear Mr. Cramer:

I would be interested in learning the same information, since I believe
that my great uncle, Salomon Marcus Salomon, lived in Malmo in the early
1890s and died there in 1893. I would be most grateful if you would pass
on to me any information you may learn about sources of information in
Malmo.

Sincerely,

There are parish records for the Jewish community in Malmö between 1879
and 1910 (before and after that period, Jews and other "dissenters"
were registered in the territorial parishes they lived in). Note that
many Jews were registered in the territorial parishes anyway (I'm not
sure, but I seem to remember non-citizens could not be members of the
Jewish community during some period. At least that was the case in
Stockholm). For the Jewish records, you have to obtain permission >from
the Jewish community in Malmö before you can access them at the Malmö
city archive. As far as I know, they haven't been digitized yet. The
territorial parishes to consider are Malmö S:t Petri and Caroli.

Other sources would be the censuses of 1870 and 1880. Unfortunately
those years are not online for Malmöhus county. Also, every year the
parishes sent statistics to SCB, the statistics bureau. These include
the names of immigrees and emigrees. (That would be the territorial
parishes). Also not digitized, I believe.

The indexes of the Swedish archives are available at www.svar.ra.se. It
helps if you know Swedish, but to get you started: "research" is
"forska". :)

Translation of one word of Hebrew (on Viewmate VM6917) #general

Laurence Harris <laurence@...>
 

I have a UK Chief Rabbi's Marriage Authorization document of 1895. There is
ONE word of Hebrew that I do not recognize, and I would appreciate any help
with the translation of this word into English.

The document can be seen on Viewmate(VM6917)using:
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6917

The word required is the second word (or name) commencing Yud-Ayin -... on
the line "Will attend Wedding".

I would like to know the Hebrew word and (if appropriate its translation).
It is probably the Hebrew name of an unmarried brother of the groom.

Please note - I am able to translate all of the other Hebrew words on the
document (so I do not need a full translation of the document - just one
word).

Please reply privately (as is usual for Viewmate replies).

Many Thanks.

Beth David Cemetery #general

Sam Schleman <Samara99@...>
 

Hello all;

I have been helping one of our brethren >from Israel in locating the death
certificate and the cemetery where his grandfather's brother is buried. I
have traced the paperwork, but he also needs a photo of the gravestone.

The grandfather's brother is buried at Beth David in Elmont. I live in
Philadelphia and am unlikely to be going that way for some time.

If someone is going to Beth David in the near future and would be willing to
take a photograph, please contact me off-list.

Thanks.

Re: Old photos of non-relations #general

David Edelman <pappapeach@...>
 

I would suggest saving the pictures. Even if your particular relitaves
are not in every picture, these are people who your family did
obviously have contact with, and there may be other pictures of them
with your relatives. This helps put into a bigger, better picture of
"Who is my family, where did we come from."
Also, these days, it is much easier to scan the pictures, and share
them with who you may find are family of these other people. These
people then may also have forgotten pictures of your family, that
they, then will be more willing to share with you.
So, deffinetly save them, preserve them, and share them with whoever
can be identified with who are family of the people in the pictures.

Cemetery listings #general

clea <clea@...>
 

With regard to cemetery lists being online in addition to the work being
done that Judy Salomon mentions the US Genweb project has also been involved
in transcribing cemetery information. Check state web sites and go to the
county archives to search. This work is all volunteer.

The WPA also worked on transcribing records in the late 1930s all across the
US. Some of these records are now online while other records of this work is
available through the LDS or local or state archives, libraries, or
historical societies.

I haven't found a WPA film for cemeteries in NYC - does anyone know if they
did work there and if so where those records are? I am interested in
Washington Cemetery and Salem Field.
