Seeking Sebastian BURD - Argentina/New York/Argentina - Nephew To Milton FAIKES #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello To All

I want to thank everyone who has helped in doing directory searches for
me. I have done some searching myself. Apparently sebastian was
residing in New York >from 1998-2002. I have been unable to trace him
after that, so I think he went back to argentina. I think he was only
living in the state to go to college. The interesting thing is most of
the references for him were new york marathons he competed in. So,
anyways I am asking for help again in trying to track him down. So if
any one living in argentina knows him or his family please let me know
how to contact him. He is the nephew of my grandfather milton FAIKES.

According to my mother sebastian's mothers name should Serula(Faikes)
BURD, not sure if thats the correct spelling of the first name. All
help is appreciated.

Re: NY marriage records #general

phylliskramer1@...
 

Debbie Skolnik asked about getting the NY marriage certificate for her gf
Barney/Barnet Cohen. She wasnt sure of the year of marriage.

My first suggestion is to try the census of 1910, 1920 and 1930; these census
entries will tell you how long they are married...then you can compute the actual
year. This is especially important, as Barnet Cohen was so common that even
on the on-line marriage index for NYC (at www.italiangen.org) for the years
1908 thru 1936...there are at least 5 marriages to be investigated, probably more.

For NYC, the choices are:
(1) go to the municipal archives in NYC (31 Chambers St) and look thru the bride
and groom indexes
(2) go to the local mormon library and order the microfilms (the catalog is online
at www.familysearch.com)
(3) take a chance and order any certificates that you see on www.italiangen.org in
hopes one of them is the one you want.

For NY State, try the mormon microfilms, and there is a set of microfiche which
index NYS marriages (1881-1949) at the National Archives branch in NYC (201
Varick St)

good luck with your search

Szoul & Szmuel LITWIN #general

Donald and Sandra Hirschhorn <sdh2381@...>
 

Thank you to the Bialystok group for placing the Bialystoker Memorial Book
on line and also placing the surnames listed therein online as well.

As a result I have noted the above two names, both of whom are indicated as
having survived World War II. Does anyone know anything about either of
these two gentlemen?

My grandfather, Moszek or Mojzesz (Mosche) LITWIN died in either Bialystok
or Lodz at a very young age and I have been unable to learn anything about
his family. Mosche was married to Cywia (Tzivia) BRUMER in Bialystok in
1895. He died in about 1907.

Any information anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated.

It should be noted that while it has been good to remind people about thank yous
part of the reason may be because this is in discussion format almost like we are in
a room talking to each other. Many times we may communicate with the same person

Thank you all who say "Thank You," but, please be specific #general

MBernet@...
 

It's great how genners are being more and more specific with their subject
lines, and how many take the bother to say "Thank you" to those who have helped
them with their inquiries.

I hope you won't think of me as churlish when I mention one more request.

When I see a subject line "thank you" I hesitate before deleting it,
scrutinize the sender's email name very carefully, wonder whether this may be
someone saying a personal thank you to me, and open the message.

Usually, it's just a waste of time. The message is usually a response to a
very specific expert with very specific knowledge that's far beyond my ken.

My request: add a couple of words to the Thank You subject line (also to
subject lines like "query," "help," "question," "puzzle," etc.), the name of a
city, a person, an event etc that will give an indication what it refers to.
That way each of us will know whether the Thank You could possibly have been
meant for us.

When you get up to 100 messages a day, the amount of time spent on opening
irrelevant messages and then deleting them >from the various parts of the system
in which they're automatically stored, really mounts up. I'd rather invest
that time in helping someone with a query.
