Unfortunately the name OKEN is very familiar in Baltimore. It will not be
easy to contact relatives. Steve OKEN would be approximately 43 now. He was
executed last summer for the deaths of three women. Steve and his family
were neighbors. His parents are David and Davida. They are keeping a low
profile. The Baltimore Jewish Times has some stories in their archives.

My husband is looking for anyone who might know Frieda Fishman SILVER or her
family. We were recently told by another cousin that Frieda would have
lived in the Philadelphia area and would have been related to our family
names Okyen.The spelling could have been (Oken, Okyn, Okun). Our
grandfather Morris Okyen and his brother Harry Oken lived in Baltimore and
came to America in the early 1900's. Their father was Yudel Oken and is
possibly buried in Philadelphia at the Har Nebo cemetery.
Please contact us if you know Frieda Fishman Silver or the name Oken.

Thank you

Hello,

An ancestor apply by his wedding in Amsterdam the name Millevelt as his
place of birth.
I presume that my ancester came >from Germany or Poland
I can't find this place in Europe

Have anyone heared of this place?

I believe by myself that the registrar in Amsterdam himself has written
the name of the place and that he heared Millevelt, but that the place
in fact Muhlfeld was.
My ancestor probable has spoken Dutch with an accent.

Anyone more ideas???

Catskills Institute Conference 26-28 August #general

Schelly Talalay Dardashti
 

Dear Genners,
Did you have family in the Catskills? Did you spend
summers there with your family? Any connection to area
hotels and bungalow colonies?

If so, this is for you. The 11th Catskills Institute
Conference will be held at Kutsher's, Fri-Sun August
26-28.

The non-profit Catskills Institute preserves the
legacy of area Jewish life, headed by Brown University
sociology professor Dr. Phil Brown, whom I've known
for years. He's amassed a great archive of Catskills
information on people and places. The conferences,
speakers, attendees are fascinating.

As a product of long summers at Kauneonga Lake (the
other side of White Lake, 10 miles past Monticello), I
am impressed by his great success in creating and
growing this archive. Phil's parents ran a hotel
called Brown's in White Lake.

This year's theme, co-sponsored by the Jewish Women's
Archive, is "Jewish Women, Comedy, and the Catskills."
The weekend includes slide shows, lectures, live
klezmer music. Talks include "Staging the Ideal Jewish
Community: Women Hotel Owners in the Catskills
1950-1970," ">from Alan King to Billy Crystal: The
Changing Face of Catskills Comedy," "'For the
Amusement of the Guests:' "How Gertrude Berg Brought
the Catskills to Radio and Television,""Catskills and
Context: Putting Together a Museum Exhibition on
Jewish-American Vacation Culture," "My Yiddishe/Red
Hot Mama: A Short History of Jewish Women in Comedy,"
"Catskills Revisited: Creating a Book for Young
Readers," "The Unkosher Comediennes: >from Sophie
Tucker to Joan Rivers."

For more information go to catskills.brown.edu.

Write Your Family History Now!

Mike Karsen

Bring Your Own Written Family History
To Display Before and After the Talk

Sunday, September 11, 2005
1:30-4:30 PM
Temple Emanuel, Newton Center (Reisman Hall)

Genealogists are very good at doing research and collecting
many facts about their family, but they frequently fail to
publish the results of their research. Mike Karsen will show
how you can publish your findings in book formats ranging
from a 30-page pamphlet to one that contains detailed
biographies and places your family in historical context.
Karsen emphasizes the importance of organizing your findings
and sharing them as soon as possible.

Mike Karsen is a professional genealogy speaker and
instructor. He is a member of the National Genealogical
Society and the Genealogical Speakers Guild. Mike has spoken
at state, national, and international conferences on
genealogical topics and has taught classes on genealogy. He
has published five of his own family histories and has
inspired many others to write their own family history.

Re: HER(T)ZBACH in London / UK - solved! #unitedkingdom

shertzbach@...
 

Almost 2 months ago (20 June jcr-uk digest) I posted a request for advice. I had
obtained 9 HER(T)ZBACH birth certificates, 2 death certificates (infants), and 3
marriage certificates, but never found any of these folks in a census. Also, I
never found birth records for my gf or his 4 siblings, and again no census
records for that family, although I'd searched the quarterly registers directly
in the FRC, and the free BMD online. The solution of this dilema, which I would
like to describe, contains several lessons.

Eight of you responded, providing a variety of useful insights. Four suggested
they had used a different surname, and three of you, Estelle, Peter, and Peter,
actually found for me the record of the 1920 naturalization (sorry, naturalisation) of "HERTZBACH, Hirsh (known as Harry HARRIS)". Why had I not found this when I last searched the PRO records? Because that was in 2001, and this record became public only in July 2002!
==> Maybe you have already searched, but it may pay to search again. <==

This was all the week before my departure to London, and I did not have much
time to pursue these leads, but when I showed up on the 26th at the FRC for my
Family History Surgery appointment, the staffer was very excited to have found
my gf and his family in the 1901 census. ... I had the 1900 marriage record for
Jacob and Mary (STERN) HERTZBACH, and 3 birth certificates (1901, 1903, 1905) at
115 Brady Street Buildings. Puzzled by my query, and having the "Harris Hint",
the FRC staff looked to see who was at that address in the 1901 census, and
found Jacob and Mary HARRIS. Then a search for my ggparents as Isaac and Leah
HARRIS found them, and the expected children, at No. 37 Cambridge Buildings.
(Isaac and Jacob were brothers.)

Would I have found them without the "Harris Hint" and the FRC? Maybe I would
have eventually looked to see who was listed at 115 Brady Street Bldgs, found my
own "Harris Hint", and gone on the find Isaac, Leah, et.al.
==> Look at all your info >from every possible angle, and pursue all leads. <==

A visit to the London Metropolitan Archives found that Cambridge Bldgs. were on
Darling Row, not far >from the Brady Street Bldgs. Then, rummaging through
microfims of school records turned up the 2 daughters, Sarah and Sophie, at the
Old Montague St. School, with the address of 37 Darling Row. I did not find the
boys there. I also obtained the birth record for my ggf, obtaining perhaps the
best estimate of my ggm's maiden name. I am still working on the other birth
records. I've now been able to find the immigration records for my gf Morris,
and for my ggf Isaac. Isaac and Mary were on the same ship, he as Isaac HARRIS,
and she as Mary HERZBACH. There is still unfinished business for my next London
visit, and I will ask a few questions in a separate post.

Sorry for being so long, but I thought this might be of interest. I've already
thanked the respondants individually, but want to thank them again here.
Estelle gets the prize for being first with the solution, and for the most
engaging email. I might have gotten to this point on my own, but maybe not.
I will be sending a token of appreciation to JewishGen.

Hello Everyone at Litvaksig

I am looking for my grandmother.
Rose SELEKOWITZ
Born: 1878, Shavil, Lithuania
Died: 1958, London, England

Lithuania and jewishgen family tree

I am getting stuck. And impatient as usual. Sorry!!

Are there any sensible birth records - anywhere - for Shavil for 1878
(my maternal grandmother) that you know of please??

Also, on the jewishgen site - family tree stuff - someone had entered
most of the pre-penultimate generation (inc Rose S) correctly.
However, my mum's generation and my generation contain SERIOUS
errors... even someone who doesn't exist has been added in!!!
"ID # 1638" ???

Any ideas re how to correct the family tree which someone else has done?
Shall I file another corrected one instead?
Have tried going through all the faqs, OK!

I have sent a message to "ID # 1638" (whom I suspect filed the
incorrect data) but I have a feeling he /she has vanished into the
ether. What do you suggest I do?

I really need to find birth documents for my grandma - Shavil 1878 -
can I somehow ask everyone in the SIG Lithuania if they have bumped
into names selekowitz or zelikovich or selikowitz ???? at Shavil,
Lith.??? Is it allowed to mail everybody??

Dear members,

I'm in Riga for the next three days and I have the address where the
brother of my grandfather lived. It's on Red Army street #49 which now
became Brivibas. Does anyone know if the numbers of the buildings on
that street were changed after the streetname was changed? I'm looking
for the Gordin family. Also, another address that existed in the 1930s
in Park 1, where my great grandparents >from the Chait side owned a
hotel. Does anyone know what this address is now?

Thank you very much for any help,

Dear Andreas,
You are right with Your saying about political

beginning of WWI, but You failed about the nowadays
structure of the archives. There do still exist those
regional archives like in Bavaria (see context above),
Saxonia, Wurtemberg and so on .., but apart >from that
there is the big National Archive existing with
diverse collections of registers, of historical
interest in different places,founded after WWII,
divided in order of specification, and beginning with

may be the WASt-deposit in Berlin as well as the
