Another angle on this was the attitude of the authorities towards those who
had left and returned. My great uncle was given a very hard time when he
returned to Mother Russia >from the UK around 1910.

SAMUELS or SAMUEL Family in Latvia #latvia

Dorene Markel <markel@...>
 

Dear friends,

I am trying to trace the origins of my grandfather and grandmother
that were known to have immigrated >from Latvia to Canada in 1896.
They may have come >from either Riga or Libau. We are uncertain if
the family name was SAMUELS at that time. At the time of
naturalization in Canada my grandfather's name was listed as Julius
SAMUELS (but in other papers it is listed as Julian). I had heard
from my father that the family name may have been something like
KATINGEN or CRATINGEN, or any other similar spelling since we only
heard the name and never saw it in writing. My grandmother's maiden
name is reported to have been Bessie SAMUEL (her maiden name lacking
the final s). Again we uncertain if these could have been the last
original names or not. We believe they were married in Latvia before
immigrating to Canada. If any one has any information or leads that I
could follow with the information I have, please respond to this
message. There are a number of descendants of Julius and Bessie now
living in both the U.S. and Canada that are trying to research the
family, so if you have information or connect to this family in any
way, please contact me. Thank you.

Hi everyone, I am researching old family photos to help my brother with
geneology research for our family. We would like to date the photos using
the fashion our family members wore. I am looking for a good historical
book on costume for 19th - early 20th century costume for Eastern
Europeans and immigrants to the US.
I am a history major in college, but not have much so far locating a book
for the area I am researching. Anyone have any luck finding a good
source?

need advice about Washington DC area burial #general

Irene Newhouse <einew@...>
 

A cousin who's working on mutual relatives with me has found that Felix
NEUMANN, born Sep 10, 1859 in "Prussia", died in Washington DC on Feb 2,
1934. His death certificate says he was buried at Fort Lincoln Cemetery in
Brentwood MD, but the cemetery told my cousin he wasn't. Has anyone run
into something like this before? Are we stuck?

Thanks!

The GINSBURGs of Los Angeles #general

Jean Perkin <jnp123@...>
 

Up to and maybe after 1938/9 the Family GINSBURG lived in Los Angeles.
There were three teenage daughters, Esther, Leah and Jeanette. They
corresponded with a cousin in London., who would like to be in touch again.

They originated in Riga, and family lore had it that they descended >from the
Baron Ginsburg.

Is there anyone out there who knew of them?

Thank you

Where did KARPLUS family live in Poland? #poland

herkarplus@...
 

I just read JRI-PL FAQ.

I am living in Vienna, but after a heart surgery I am currently staying in
Jerusaalem.

I am doing research on the surnames KARPLUS and KARPELES, but do compile
all their variations, too.

We do have a KARPLUS Family Tree >from 1903, recently updated by myself,
dating back to 1600 in Hotzenplotz/Osoblaha (CZ). A "lost branch" which
had to change its name, lived in Galicia and then Russia as of 1815.

As I learned >from a letter >from 1937, there was an older FT of the KARPLUS
family in Poland. Allegedly the family came >from Spain via Amsterdam.
I am sure that this older FT was lost due to the German invasion in 1939.

My problem is, that I have no idea, where the KARPLUS lived in Poland. What
I would like to learn is how to proceed - it does not make sense to me to
search some 3.000 shtetls in Poland.

Please respond privately.

regards
Hermann David Karplus.

MODERATOR'S NOTE: If you search the Jewish Records Indexing-Poland
database (go to www.jri-poland.org and click on "Search Database")
for KARPLUS, using the "sounds like" option, the first page of search
results will show the areas in which listings for the name have been
indexed in the database. This, and checking the search results themselves,
may give you a sense of where the surname was concentrated in 19th century
Poland.

publishing genealogies-- privacy considerations #general

Herbert Lazerow
 

It was suggested that in publishing genealogies
<As for the recently dead, a good rule of thumb is to consider the
privacy rules that different countries have for personal information.>
This does not help, as there is almost no consensus about
what is proper. In MA or CA, I can go to the index within a short
time after the death and find reference to the document, whereas
in PA, I can find no reference to a death after 1915 in an official
document available to the public. Some jurisdictions close all
records for 100 years, others for 72, still others close them for
90 years for a birth, 50 years for a marriage, and 20 years for a
death. There is simply no agreed standard.

Canadian Census 1911 - In appreciation #general

Flo Elman
 

A very grateful thank you to all of you who took the time to advise me of
other possible ward names for Census 1911, Montreal, Quebec. I found my
maternal side of the family, & the records gave me answers to some key
questions. I even discovered all of my husband's grandparents! Of the
original (paternal) relatives I was searching, nary a sign, & I'm already on
the final Sub-district. (?) However, I think it was great of you to write in
with all your suggestions - & there were a lot of you. What a super group.
Genealogists are truly very sharing people!

With gratitude,
Florence NERENBERG Elman
