I have responded privately to the people who posted messages regarding
the Aufbau project. Many volunteers including Hans Nord and Fritz
Neubauer have generously contributed their time to the project for
which I thank all of them.

I will post a message here soon detailing the history of the project
and its progress to date. Before that though I've decided to make a
sample portion of the database >from January to June 1950 available at
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~alcalz/1950/ . This should
give a basic idea of what the project hopes to achieve once completed.

The Scout Report just gave a URL for a Scotland Records site:
http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/
The site contains access to over 43 million records, and was created
through a partnership between the General Register Office for Scotland, the
National Archives of Scotland, The Court of the Lord Lyon and Scotland
Online. Visitors to the site may browse indices of Scottish births >from
1553 to 1904, marriages >from 1553 to 1929, and deaths >from 1855 to 1954.
New users may want to look at the "What's in the Database" section of the
site to get a sense of the entire contents of this rather vast collection.

Vilna Shtetlinks Web page #lithuania

Joel Ratner
 

Several months ago the Shtetlinks folks raised several objections to
the Vilna Shtetlinks web page as it existed, not the least of which was the
static surnames list. They also objected to the fact there was no real
original content. The site had been prepared almost exclusively utilizing
hyperlinks to already existing content on other web sites.

The Vilna Shtetlinks web page has now been turned over to the Shtetlinks
Coordinators who are now seeking someone else to maintain the web page. The
static list of surnames is now gone, as well as most links to library sites
around the world. Those who deleted the library sites may not have carefully
considered that Brandeis, the NYPL Jewish Division, and the other libraries
I had listed contain significant holdings of interest to Vilna researchers.
That is what I had discovered in the 9 years I've been researching Vilna
resources, having visited many of these repositories as well and bringing
home a lot of material.

Gone also are the links to several map sites including the David Rumsey web
page where you can find some very good maps of the Baltics as well as a
wonderful Russian web page containing maps of many of the Russian gubernias.

Anyone who wishes to see the content of the Vilna Shtetlinks web page prior
to the cleansing, just go to www.archive.org . Once there, insert the URL
for the Vilna web page
[ http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/vilna/vilna.htm ]. A listing will be
provided which shows the history of the web page [every time it was
updated]. This technique can be used to view old versions of any web page.

Researchers interested in specific Vilna resources and obtaining same should
contact me at Joelrat1@hotmail.com.

Re: ships's list question #general

Peter Zavon <pzavon@...>
 

The passenger list format was specified by the US government and was looking
for final destination *in the US*. I consider it as unlikely as the sun
rising in the west that a destination of Settle, UK would be indicated by
any passenger on a US arrivals Passenger list.

Many place names in the UK have been applied to places in the US, however,
as best I can tell, Settle was not among them.

On the other hand, it is quite possible that people originating in Europe
would have Seattle as a final destination in the US, and in 1890 Seattle was
certainly an established city. So I think the most likely explanation is
that Yossel and those others were in fact headed to Seattle, Washington and
the record you looked at has a spelling or transcription error in it.

Searching: LEAF nee LIEBERMAN/LIFSCHITZ/LOEW/LEV Original Shtetls and/or Gubernias #ukraine

Rachelle <rlberliner@...>
 

In an effort to determine the exact origin shtetl and/or gubernia of our
LEAF family, listed below are the given names within the descendants of
two brothers, Joseph Osher LEAF nee LIFSCHITZ and Shimshon LEAF nee
LIEBERMAN/LOEW (pronounced LEV).

Just recently 25 year old information has been sent to us that the
family could have been >from Latvia. A member OBM of the Joseph Osher LEAF
family had memory of being told her father was originally >from Odessa, Ukraine.

According to the Ellis Island Data Base, via www.stevemorse.org, the
Shimshon LEAF family came >from Swislowitz, Russia (now Swisloch in
Belarus.
This information is confusing since there are three different possible
locations of where our family began.


Joseph Osher LIFSCHITZ (as we believe) was married to Basha JASELOFF
Descendants given names:

Sampson (Shmuel)
Sarah (Sorah maybe)
Harry Aaron (Hershel Aharon)
Anna (Channah)

Shimshon LIEBERMAN/LOEW was married to Alter Neome AIN
Descendants given names:

Samuel Isaiah (Shmuel Yishaiah)
Max (Mendel)
Morris (Moshe)


If anyone has these names on their family tree, I would greatly
appreciate hearing >from you, privately.

Recorded IAJGS Conerence Sessions Ready for Shipment #latvia

Elsebeth Paikin
 

Dear 'Genners..

We are delighted to tell you about a wonderful opportunity to own a set of
3 CDs containing 31 recorded presentations at the just concluded IAJGS
conference in Las Vegas. All this is thanks to Ron Arons and his small
army of volunteers. Ron stepped up to the plate when it was announced that
the customary practice of recording the sessions could not be
followed. Conference attendees as well as those who were not able to join
us in Las Vegas now have an opportunity to listen to 31 of the sessions.

We are making the complete set available at a very affordable $35 plus
modest shipping and handling costs. Shipping cost will vary depending on
the country to which the set is being delivered and will show up when you
go through the ordering system in the Mall. Nothing is charged to your
credit card until you approve, so don't be timid about using the
system. Ron will start burning CDs and shipping as soon as he begins to
get the orders. Hopefully you will keep him busy for the next few weeks! <g>

To see a complete listing of which of the sessions were recorded visit
the JewishGenMall at www.jewishgenmall.org The quickest way to find
the complete description is to either enter the full title into the search
field,
"IAJGS 2005 Conference Lectures in a 3 CD Set (MP3 audio files)"
or just select
"Recorded Lecture"s
from the Topic drop down box.
The sooner you order, the sooner you can enjoy listening to the conference
lectures at your leisure.
