Variant spellings of town names #poland

Avigdor&Laia <lbendov@...>
 

Henry Schwartz posed a question re: town names in Poland. This is exactly my
complaint that there needs to be a database of Eastern European towns with
variant spellings, coordinates, and Hebrew and/or Yiddish equivalents since
so many of us are trying to pin down towns of interest and get lost in the
poor transliterations which often are not uniform >from yizkorbook to
yizkorbook. The Dutch-Maikoff Soundex is useful, as in the search for
shtetls, but more can be done.

For example, KROCANKA can be Kruszenica or maybe Krosnica?? If we would
also try to at least give a geographic context, say East or West of Warsaw
about so many miles/km. that would help reduce the fuzziness in deciding
which alternative might be "correct".

good websites: Hamburg,Ger. / Brooklyn NY #general

sgootman@...
 

I want to pass on to you a website that is helpful if the people that you
are searching for came over >from a ship in Hamburg. The website is
ltyr.hamburg.de The website is in German but has links to other languages
including English. The search on the database is free but if you order
there is a fee. If you order it will tell you what ports the ship went
to on that trip.

Another website bklyn-genealogy-info.com It has many clickable links which
may help you.

Bessarabia Duma List Project Completed #general

Terry Lasky <tlasky@...>
 

The Bessarabia Duma List Project is now completed. Another 55,000+ names have
been added, bringing the total to 128,000 names. The Bessarabia Duma project is a
listing of all men over the age of 24 who were eligible to vote in the 1906 and
1907 Bessarabian Duma Election. The gubernia of Bessarabia includes all of
Moldova and portions of the Ukraine (Black Sea area and the area along the
northern border of Moldova). This database is a part of the JewishGen Romania
Database, which is found at
< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Romania >.

Many people worked on this project, but I would specifically like to thank Harry
Green, Claire Stuart and Leslie Oberman who were the "superstars" of this effort
and did the majority of the work. I would also like to thank JewishGen for all of
their support and especially Warren Blatt and Michael Tobias.

U.S. in August 1907. If this is your Abraham Rothman email me and I will send you
the Declaration.

I have a "Declaration of Intention" for Samual SPIEGEL born 17 August 1909 in
Poland. If this is your Samuel Spiegel email me and I will send you the

Research in Israel #general

Jeff & Mel Osrin <jeffosri@...>
 

Hi Genners

I will be travelling to Israel for a week(18 - 25 September). I am wanting to do
some research regarding my family. Besides going to Beit Hatfutsoth where else
should I go. I am not looking for any WWII records otherwise I would naturally go
to Yad Vashem.

The period I am looking at is 1880-1905, for Delyatichi, Novogrudock, Bialystock
and Copenhagen. The surnames are OSCHEROWITZ, SUSSEL and UNTERSCHLAG.

I am also researching RISKIN fro Drissa, ZIPIKOFF >from Estonia, GELVAN form Narva
Estonia and Copenhagen and KRENZEL >from Pskov and Copenhagen also around
1880-1905.

If anyone in Israel is looking at the same " surnames " I am more than willing to
meet or speak with them . My research no in Jewish Gen is 10041 .

Yours in research

Need Assistance from Ellis Island Manifest Guru/Detective #general

Howie Axelrod <highwind1@...>
 

If you do and "exact" first and last name search in the EIDB for Geza ZSUPNIK,
you will find 2 records and manifest entries, as well as 2 different passenger
numbers (101857090197 and 101857070205) for the same person. It appears >from the
first manifest indicates that he was transferred >from Steerage class to Second
cabin.

Questions (and it might be helpful to look at the manifests prior to answering)

3) Is this not the same person?

2) Would having 2 different passenger numbers make sense?

3) Why would such a transfer (upgrade?) have been done? Note: He was traveling
alone and appears to have been to the US before in 1890.


Note: to me this appears to be the same passenger. The Steerage class manifest
appears to have a line through some of the entry (do you agree - I am not really
sure myself), with a notation of "transfer to second cabin" on the line.

Note - For reasons I can't explain, Steve Morse's Blue form will not find these
records. You can use his white form, or the regular EI homepage search engine. Any
idea why this is BTW?

Anyone able to clarify all this for me?
