ms nodrog
 

Dear Genners,
I am searching for my husband's family. The surname was
Gordin/Gordon >from Daugavpils, Latvia (Dvinsk, Belarus) and Minsk.
The family as far as we know were:
Yehuda Lev (possibly Leib)married to Zlate (Lottie in America)
or Esther.
The children were:
Eva,
Feni (Jennie in America) and
Chaim (Harry in America)
Sender (Samuel in America)

Other relative may have come >from Lybyany (Lubuni), Vilnius
and Gomel. These towns are all within a two and a half to
three hour horse and buggy ride to each other.

If you see any connection, or know of anyone, please contact me at
msnodrog@...

Thanks in advance,
Hope Gordon

Re: Zabasearch Website #general

Sal & Ellen Barbieri <elsal@...>
 

Despite the many omissions, duplications & outdated info, I would like to
report enormous success using Zabasearch. It takes hours and alot of cross
checking. I have found data that is nowhere else including an address
without phone # for an unlisted #. I located someone with a very common
surname by printing out a 12 page list of her husband, then comparing to her
name state by state and I spoke to her today after 30 yrs. I did know her
middle initial and approximate DOB. When I find someone, I then enter last
name only & town & determine who is in that household, particularly male
names and DOB. Then if phone # turns out to be incorrect, I have more data
to continue searching elswhere for that family. I located 6 addresses for 3
children of a friend, all of whom are unlisted. I also look for the same
surname in town.
I located 38 people >from my husband's 55 year old Army List. I did a reverse
look-up on all the numbers I found and only about 30% are correct, some I
could find in on-line phone directories as some of errors are typos.
Happy Hunting!

Stephen Morse Does It Again!!!! #general

Joan Parker <joanparker@...>
 

Anyone who read today's What's Nu now knows that Stephen Morse did it again by
extending information available at Ellis Island under Additional Details. The best
part of the Additional Details is the new tool will find traveling family/companions
and provide it all on one place. This makes it easy to copy data to the spreadsheet.
The other items show port, ship, marital status, ethnicity, and full date of arrival
while the White, Blue and Gray forms show the name, age, year and town.

Also he has added some info to the 1930 ED, Queens 1915 AD/EDs and 1930 census codes.

If we Jews had Saints I'd certainly nominate Stephen for Sainthood. But since we
don't all I can say is a big Thank You to Stephen for all the wonderful work he has
done to make our research so much easier. A long and healthy life!!!

Happy Purim to all,

Dear JewishGendom,
I am searching for the family or surviving relatives of Alex
KUSTIN who passed away in 1983 in Florida. Based upon a birth certificate

What is the best way of locating census data >from

Any help is appreciated.

Hello Group,

Yes, we all know that there are no rules regarding the "pairings" of Jewish
and local civil names. Yes, some chose names that shared an initial; some
chose names that shared meaning; some chose names that shared general sound;
some chose names that shared nothing evident. But - let's face it - some
names are paired more often than others. Would anyone have input as to what
could have been such a statistical equivalent to the name Jerome, in New
York, in th e'20s and '30s?
Bearing the statistical qualification in mind, I would be fairly sure that
the answer is "Yirmiya", Jeremiah. "Jeremiah" has a lot more going for it
than a first initial -- the two share all their consonants.

Re: Where is Ariopol? #general

Jules Levin
 

My grandfather's place of residence, as listed in the Hamburg
Passenger List is Ariopol, Russland.

Does anyone know where in Russia is a place named Ariopol?
I have not been able to find, so far, any reference to Ariopol or
Krasch on the internet.
The ending of the placename Ariopol is not Slavic, and suggests an
originally Greek location, of which there were plenty in the Black Sea
area. (Cf. Taraspol) Note also Odessa. Of course if part of the Russian
Empire, it would be considered "Russia". Interestingly, there were ethnic
Greeks up to the present in the USSR whose ancestors had lived there >from
time immemorial.
