Searching for RESNICK #general

GRAMAW
 

I am trying to find descendants of Manya and Julius RESNICK . The Resnicks
owned a ladies purse company and last were known to be in Miami Beach in the
1980's. Manya was a cousin of my husband's mother and we are hoping to find
out her maiden name and where in Russian the family was from.

Abraham ISAACS - MInneapolis 1910 census #general

Barbara Zimmer <bravo.zulu@...>
 

Stacy Harris asked about this census.
I cannot respond privately because there is no email address.

The family of Abraham ISAACS lived at 620 7th Avenue in Minneapolis
in 1910. Abraham says that he was married for the second time. Rivka
was married for 13 years, her first marriage. She has had 7 (?)
children, all living.

MODERATOR NOTE: Stacy's e-mail address should have appeared with
her message in the From: line.


Canadian 1911 Census-Where to Start #general

Shmuel Fisher <Shmuel@...>
 

I know only that Montreal is the city that my people lived in 1911. But
where do I start. I know that they lived on Rue Bagg in the 40's. What are
the likely districts and sub-districts that I should scan?

French Yiskor book project... #france

Rosanne Leeson <rdleeson@...>
 

Dear fellow SIGgers,

I am once again writing about the French Yiskor Book project for the
community of Grussenheim (H-R) Alsace, which we will be starting to work
on for the JewishGen Yiskor Book site. We have 3 volunteers, and a
Project Coordinator, at present. This is wonderful, but it is only a
beginning. We would dearly love to be able to add a few more
translators so that the task for all will be lighter, and hopefully,
will progress more quickly.

If you are able to help please do let me know as soon as possible.

Thank you,

Lithuanian database info on BUKANTS #general

Manning Bookstaff <mbookstaff@...>
 

Just visited the Lithuanian databases recently posted
and find a number of names that appear similar to the
Americanized versions of names I have encountered in
US records. Few of the Lithuanian records offer ages
or birth years or anything else that may allow me to
confidently ID these individuals and be able to go
back another several generations and add a bunch of
otherwise unknown cousins to my family. Any
suggestions for other sources? Appreciate any help!

Re: Canada 1911 Census Help - Winnipeg Sub-Districts -Selkirk Ave #general

RGerber <rgerber30@...>
 

I too have been looking in the Winnipeg census for 1911. Here is what I
have gathered so far:

subdistrict 79 covers >from about 600 block to 1000 block of Selkirk, Flora,
and Dufferin
81> 200-500 block of Burrows, Magnus, Manitoba, Selkirk and Pritchard
82> 400-600 block of Selkirk, Pritchard, Manitoba and Magnus
83> 600-800 block of Selkirk
84> 900 block west of Pritchard, Magnus and Selkirk

This is just >from my own notes, and is not intended to be complete. There
were a large number of Jews living in this area at the time, and I am hoping
to find my relatives. Addresses that I have been given are 228 Pritchard,
711 Selkirk, and the intersection of Main and St. Johns. No luck so far.

looking for PLOTKIN family in Denver #general

Todd Brody
 

Ok, this is a longshot. The Ellis Island manifest for
my uncle Feivel (Phillip) Braude says that he was
going to Denver to stay with an aunt whose name
appears to be PLOTKIN. The manifest is dated 1914. I
have spoken with Phillip's daughter who confirms that
her father initially went to Denver before moving to
Cleveland. Anyway, I am trying to find any Plotkins
who would have lived in Denver during this time
period. Phillip came >from Telz in Lithuania so I
would assume that this aunt was also >from the area
around Telz. Any help would be appreciated.

U.S. Census #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

I've noticed that a good resource for the U.S. Census has been left out of
the recent discussions on the topic. What is the resource? It is the local
public library. Most cities and/or counties in America have one or more
library branches which have full sets of the U.S. Census. Local libraries
are easy to get to and are free!!!

In my beginning forays as a researcher many years ago I spent much time in
the Main Public Library in Miami, FL, with great results. This was before
the advent of on-line databases where you have to pay for the information.
Later, when I tried these on-line databases to see how they compared with
looking through the Census manually, there was no comparison. For instance,
I couldn't find my grandfather at all and I had easily been able to do so
manually.

Also, sometimes, for some reason, one microfilmed set of the Census can be
better than another, so if you find a poor copy of a page, you might look at
a copy in another location. It is worth a try.

Re: A better copy of a census page? #general

Judith Lipmanson <lipmanson@...>
 

I've had some less than stellar experiences with microfilm rented
from the FHC near me. After waiting 6-8 weeks, I've rec'd films that
were totally illegible because of blurriness or overexposure. I've asked
if it was because of the particular copy or because the original copy
was so bad, and was told that the "original" was bad. This didn't make
sense to me unless he meant, by original, the first film. I had ordered
a large number of films; about half were of limited or no utility to me
because portions of the record could not be read. These were marriage and
birth certificate indexes, and without this information I cannot order the
film of the certificates themselves.

As for Census pages, I've found the National Archives, either in D.C. or
a local branch, to be a superior source.

On the [xxx], I found a 1910 US Federal Census for New York,
Manhattan Borough. As it happens, the page I need is out of focus and
practically unreadable. I checked at the [xxx], the same blurred
image. Where can I get the better copy of this particular page (I know
the ED and the sheet number)?

There is a Family History Center at 3105 S Broadway, Fort Myers, Florida.
They're open Wed. through Fri., 9am-4pm. It costs $3.25 to rent the
microfilm. If it's impossible for you to visit the FHC, I can view
the film at a location near me. It may not be any help if the original
page was in bad shape, though.

Anyone can find where the FHCs are by going to
http://www.familysearch.org/eng/Library/FHC/frameset_fhc.asp .
They're staffed by volunteers and usually have limited hours. The ones
near me at least are open on most Saturdays. Since they put their
catalog online, I've been able to search for the films I need at home
ahead of time & then I just bring the film information to the center. It
takes two trips: one to order and one to view. Not as convenient as
zipping online, but very valuable indeed because of the variety of
materials. I encourage everyone with an FHC nearby to check the catalog
& see what may be of use in your own research.
