Re: 1925 New York State Census #general

I'd like to add to Joy Rich's posting regarding the wonderful new index
that Steven Morse has on his website for the NY State census.

First, the marvel of the 1925 census is that it contains the year and court
of Naturalization!! What a find!

The index is relatively easy to use...but some preparation is required. You
must know the exact address and then go to mapquest to find the cross streets,
otherwise you will have to search muliple microfilms.

Yesterday I tried the microfilms at the New York Public Library and found
information i've been seeking for years. --
Happy Hunting!

Henry - My aunt's Yiddish name was Chaia but her English name was Anna. =
Anna
in Hungarian is also Nina and Netty (diminuitives). You might try those
names.

Recommended Photo Website #ukraine

Michelle Frager <lulu_brooks@...>
 

Dear Group:

I hope this recommendation will be accepted by the moderators, as it offers a
rare (in my experience) opportunity to see photos of Ukrainian shtetls in their
current state. Not a formal all-inclusive survey, what's amazing and depressing
is that one might think the photos date >from the Thirties, not 1989+.

The photographer is a Ukrainian Jew who emigrated in 2001. Her name is Rita
Ostrovskaya, at http://www.rita-art.org/start-e.html .

Canada Census - 1911 / Help with St. Jean Baptiste Ward #general

Shlomo Katz <SKatz@...>
 

Based on the map of the St. Laurent District, it appears that the
neighborhood I seek is in the adjoining district, in St. Jean Baptiste
Ward. However, I cannot figure out which district that is. Any
suggestions? Thanks

Census Puzzle #general

Stein Lewis
 

An error by an enumerator on the 1910 census gave me a clue to my
maternal gf's place of birth. In checking his nephew who lived in
Strawberry Mansion (a section of Philadelphia), the country of origin
on the page was consistently "Russia" until I reached David
Silverberg. There it was "Kiev" which was then crossed out and
replaced by Russia. Interestingly, David's wife and his sister-in-
law were both shown as being >from "Galicia." I still don't know
where they were >from in Kiev, but it narrows down the search.

Dr. Nathan Adler Lodge #general

Shari Kantrow
 

Hello all:
In trying to locate this lodge, here is some info I
have found. The confusion is...are these two separate
and distinct lodges, or are they one and the same?:

1. Dr. Nathan Adler Lodge No. 137 IOSB Independent
Order Sons of Benjamin p. 54
and
2. Dr. Nathan Adler Lodge No. 132 IOBA Independent
Order Brith Abraham p. 57
My SCHNEIDER family is buried with this lodge at Mt.
Carmel, Queens
Also, is there anyone who will be going to the NY
Public Library Jewish Division sometime who will be
able to do a lookup for me?
Thanks...it seems like one mystery always
leads to another. : )

Census puzzle - PRWR #general

Barbara Zimmer <bravo.zulu@...>
 

The topic of the notation PRWR in the census has been debated for
about a week. So today I sent most of the discussion to an
acquaintance who works for the Census Bureau in Washington D.C. Let's
hope that he can find out a definitive answer for all of us.

FW: Canada Census 1911 - Research Tip and Suggestion #general

Shlomo Katz <SKatz@...>
 

I have a research tip for the Canada Census. If you are like me and are
flailing about blindly reading page after page of the census, you can
save some eye strain by focusing on the columns for "Racial or Tribal
Origin" and "Religion," instead of trying to read all of the family
names. If you know you are looking for a "Hebrew," you can easily
eliminate pages in just seconds which are all "R. Catholique" or
"Methodiste" etc.

Now a suggestion for someone who has the time and access to the relevant
information (I have neither). Perhaps someonce can identify the
districts or subdistricts in Montreal where major synagogues were
located in 1911 and post that information. That way, if I know that
(for example) my great-uncle married at a certain synagogue, I can have
a hope of narrowing the search. Obviously, people sometimes (often?)
married outside of their neighborhoods, but it's a start.

Thanks,

Shlomo Katz
