Henry - My aunt's Yiddish name was Chaia but her English name was Anna. =
Anna
in Hungarian is also Nina and Netty (diminuitives). You might try those
names.

Recommended Photo Website #ukraine

Michelle Frager <lulu_brooks@...>
 

Dear Group:

I hope this recommendation will be accepted by the moderators, as it offers a
rare (in my experience) opportunity to see photos of Ukrainian shtetls in their
current state. Not a formal all-inclusive survey, what's amazing and depressing
is that one might think the photos date >from the Thirties, not 1989+.

The photographer is a Ukrainian Jew who emigrated in 2001. Her name is Rita
Ostrovskaya, at http://www.rita-art.org/start-e.html .

Canada Census - 1911 / Help with St. Jean Baptiste Ward #general

Shlomo Katz <SKatz@...>
 

Based on the map of the St. Laurent District, it appears that the
neighborhood I seek is in the adjoining district, in St. Jean Baptiste
Ward. However, I cannot figure out which district that is. Any
suggestions? Thanks

Census Puzzle #general

Stein Lewis
 

An error by an enumerator on the 1910 census gave me a clue to my
maternal gf's place of birth. In checking his nephew who lived in
Strawberry Mansion (a section of Philadelphia), the country of origin
on the page was consistently "Russia" until I reached David
Silverberg. There it was "Kiev" which was then crossed out and
replaced by Russia. Interestingly, David's wife and his sister-in-
law were both shown as being >from "Galicia." I still don't know
where they were >from in Kiev, but it narrows down the search.

Hello all:
In trying to locate this lodge, here is some info I
have found. The confusion is...are these two separate
and distinct lodges, or are they one and the same?:

1. Dr. Nathan Adler Lodge No. 137 IOSB Independent
Order Sons of Benjamin p. 54
and
2. Dr. Nathan Adler Lodge No. 132 IOBA Independent
Order Brith Abraham p. 57
My SCHNEIDER family is buried with this lodge at Mt.
Carmel, Queens
Also, is there anyone who will be going to the NY
Public Library Jewish Division sometime who will be
able to do a lookup for me?
Thanks...it seems like one mystery always
leads to another. : )

Census puzzle - PRWR #general

Barbara Zimmer <bravo.zulu@...>
 

The topic of the notation PRWR in the census has been debated for
about a week. So today I sent most of the discussion to an
acquaintance who works for the Census Bureau in Washington D.C. Let's
hope that he can find out a definitive answer for all of us.

FW: Canada Census 1911 - Research Tip and Suggestion #general

Shlomo Katz <SKatz@...>
 

I have a research tip for the Canada Census. If you are like me and are
flailing about blindly reading page after page of the census, you can
save some eye strain by focusing on the columns for "Racial or Tribal
Origin" and "Religion," instead of trying to read all of the family
names. If you know you are looking for a "Hebrew," you can easily
eliminate pages in just seconds which are all "R. Catholique" or
"Methodiste" etc.

Now a suggestion for someone who has the time and access to the relevant
information (I have neither). Perhaps someonce can identify the
districts or subdistricts in Montreal where major synagogues were
located in 1911 and post that information. That way, if I know that
(for example) my great-uncle married at a certain synagogue, I can have
a hope of narrowing the search. Obviously, people sometimes (often?)
married outside of their neighborhoods, but it's a start.

Thanks,

Shlomo Katz

JRI-Poland Needs Volunteers to Extract Info from Pre-1826 Registers, Town of Serock #general

Howard Orenstein
 

Dear Friends,
Motivated by curiosity, I examined LDS microfilm Number 1496724,
which contained Catholic Records for Serock, between 1808 and 1825.
To my delight and amazement,
I found records that contained Hebrew signatures. Unfortunately, I
cannot discern the contents of these Polish records. I made photocopies of
the records and then scanned them into my computer. So, on behalf of JRI-Poland,
I am asking for volunteers to examine these scans and extract the information
from them in order to provide information for researchers
interested in families >from this geographical area. I have about 65
scans, each about .8MB, and I could email you as many as you would like to work
on, provided that each separate mailing contains no more than 3 scans.

You can look at a couple online to give you an idea of what is involved.

House number in birth record #poland

Fran Segall <FranSegall@...>
 

In Galician birth registers (post 1877) 2 of the sub-columns in column 2
are for the place of birth - one is the town, the other is the house
number. How were addresses identified at that time? Is there a street
name or were all the houses in the town identified solely by a house
number?
