Help with an unusual situation #general

richmauro@...
 

Hello,

I'm exploring a number of avenues to try and resolve a quest to find a Jewish
family who left a family photo album in our house back in the sixties. It was
tucked away in the attic and I found it recently during a clean out.

The album was compiled >from 1947-1950 by a Sandra C Nagler. Her parents,
Julius and Tillie Nagler owned the house in Carteret NJ >from 1959-1969. They
may originally have come >from Brooklyn, but I'm not quite sure of that. The
parents are deceased and Sandra must be quite old if she is still alive.

I'd love anyone who knows anything about the family to contact me so that I
can get this album to someone in the Nagler family.

Thank you,

Rich Mauro

Jewish Migration to Russia #general

David Goldman
 

Is anything clearly known about the pattern of Jewish migration >from White
Russia into southern Ukraine? I keep thinking that since I had a
great-great-grandfather in the Nova Ushitza area with the name of Shneur
Zalman born in 1830, it must be the case that he or his parents migrated
since they carried the same last name of KRASINSKY as did Jews living in the
White Russia area (as pointed out to me my several helpful Jewishgenners). I
wonder whether there was specific migration or simply that individual
families made the move for various reasons.

Similarly, is anything known about the pattern of migration of Jews
specifically to White Russia >from the west? Did Jews who lived in White
Russia/Belarus originate in specific places in the Rhineland of Germany as
compared to Jews who ended up in Poland further south?

Thanks,
David Goldman

Yizkor Book Project, May 2018 #ukraine

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

It is always very gratifying to look back and see what accomplishments
we've managed to achieve in the Yizkor Book Project over the previous
month. I would now like to outline some of these accomplishments:

To begin with, in what has become a regular section of our monthly
report, once again, I am pleased to announce the completion of a
further 3 Yizkor Book projects and they are:

- Children Train - An additional book written by the indefatigable,
William Leibner, which was carefully edited by Erica S. Goldman-Brodie
and Toby Bird z”l. We are extremely indebted to receive this further
addition to our project.
- Czestochowa, Poland (The Jews of Czestochowa) - This book has been
the "baby" of Gloria Berkenstat Freund over quite a few years.
Together with the many other translation projects she works on, she
has managed to completely translate this extensive volume. Our deep
appreciation goes out to Gloria for the completion of this project
which joins a number of other books previously translated by her on
the Czestochowa community that we have online.
- Roman, Romania (The Jewish Community of Roman) A book that was
kindly translated by a number of volunteer translators and has been
meticulously edited and translations supplemented by Yocheved
Klausner, allowing us to present the completed volume online.

We now have 150 completely online and if you are "concerned" that we
soon won't have nothing to do, we do have a further 750 Yizkor book
projects that are work in progress, so there are huge challenges still
ahead of us. We are always looking out for volunteer assistance and
financial support in our endeavor to advance these projects and if you
are able to assist in any manner, I would be pleased to hear >from you.
In particular, I would like to hear >from you if you are knowledgeable
in Hebrew or Yiddish and have a background in editing and, most
importantly, are able to volunteer some time to the project, this
would be assistance that would definitely help us go forward.

And on regular sections, again, we have the honor of announcing the
publishing of two new books through the auspices of the Yizkor Books
in Print Project, bringing the total number of books published by this
group to 70 - a humble hats off to them!

- Memorial Book of 13 Shtetls of Galicia - Another book written by
William Leibner (yes, the name is now very familiar) that was
attentively edited by Ingrid Rockberger and covers 13 communities, not
all of which, previously had their own Yizkor book.
- There Was A Shtetl In Lithuania: Dusiat Reflected In Reminiscences -
A quite considerable volume (960 pages) dedicated to the community of
Dusiat (Dusetos) which was laboriously compiled by Sara Weiss-Slep and
further painstakingly edited and produced by Hedva Scop and Olga
Zabludoff.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in May.

We have added in one new book:

- Monor, Hungary (Bound by Fate: In Memory of the Jewish Community of
Monor) https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Monor/Monor.html

MyHeritage to Sunset Three Acquired Services #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Nothing is forever. My Heritage announced they are retiring three services
they acquired in 2011: MyBackup Tree, Family Link and World Vital Records.
The three services will be deleted September 1, 2018.

My Backup Tree was a free service for backing up family trees consisting of
a software client and server backup at www.backupmytree.com

World Vital Records/FamilyLink provided a searchable collection of
historical records and were the basis for MyHeritage's expansion into
historical records in 2011. These records were transferred to MyHeritage's
SuperSearchT in 2012. According to the MyHeritage Blog post, advised
subscribers of World Vital Records or Family Link that still have an active
subscription that extends beyond September 1, 2018, and do not yet have an
equivalent subscription for free on MyHeritage, will be provided a free
equivalent subscription on MyHeritage for the duration of their current
subscription.

For more information see: https://tinyurl.com/ybemoslr
Original url:
https://blog.myheritage.com/2018/06/sunset-notice-for-backupmytree-and-world-vital-records-family-link/

Because I am noticing the retirement of these three services I am also
noting that MyHeritage added 11 new collections with 9.8 million new
historical records, which include newspaper collections >from the US, New
Jersey birth, marriage and death indexes, Danish 1840 census and Queensland
Passenger and Crew Lists. I don't usually notify about any genealogical
company's new collections as they each add many monthly. To read about the
11 new collections see:

DAN Family #general

Sheldon Dan <sheldan1955@...>
 

I am currently looking through the archives of our family genealogist and am
reading a family history composed by my great-uncle Lewis DAN. I am trying
to verify a few facts >from this family history.

My great-great-grandfather was David Elimelech (David King) DAN. He lived in
Upynas, Lithuania. He had two sons who lived to maturity, Shraga Phievel
(Philip) DAN and Solomon DEN. (There are a number of name changes in our
family, but to our knowledge the last name has not been shortened.) There
was a record of a son who drowned at age 5, although Lewis's records
indicate that there may have been a daughter who died at the same time as
David King's first wife, Kala Bossel, possibly around 1870. Then David
King may have married a widow with three daughters, whose married name may
have been MENDELSON. The daughters were Anna, who became Solomon Den's
first wife; Mary Faye, whose daughter Ida May became Solomon's second wife,
and Elizabeth (Lizzie), whose surname was recorded as News and married Moses
HARRIS, whose children were indirectly related to us.

Philip married Perel Libba (Lizzie) SOLOMOVICH, daughter of Dena DUNN of
Taurage, Lithuania. Dena had been married to Zalman Eleazer SOLOMOVICH and
later married a widower, Gutel HERSHOVITZ. Both had families before and had
four children together. Philip was previously married and had one daughter,
Ada. Philip and Lizzie had two children in Lithuania, Solomon (Sol, my
grandfather), and Leah. They immigrated to Liverpool, England, and had
Rebecca, Rose, and Sarah. Lewis's family history indicates that they
immigrated to Baltimore, where Sarah may have died either there or on the
way to the United States. Then it says that Philip and Lizzie moved to
Atlanta before moving to Memphis and having the remainder of their children,
David King, Rachel, Mary, Lewis, Jules, Bessie, and Mollie Bernice.

I am trying to verify the various accounts. I am not sure of the veracity
of the account of a daughter, but it might have been possible for David King
to marry a widow whose children were later related to the family. I am also
trying to verify whether the family lived in Baltimore or merely went through
the port during immigration. Sarah died in infancy in 1886; the family had
immigrated to England around 1883 and left around 1886. By 1888 they were
in Memphis.

If you can provide me with any help regarding this particular branch of the
family, I would appreciate it.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen DAN Family #general

Sheldon Dan <sheldan1955@...>
 

I am currently looking through the archives of our family genealogist and am
reading a family history composed by my great-uncle Lewis DAN. I am trying
to verify a few facts >from this family history.

My great-great-grandfather was David Elimelech (David King) DAN. He lived in
Upynas, Lithuania. He had two sons who lived to maturity, Shraga Phievel
(Philip) DAN and Solomon DEN. (There are a number of name changes in our
family, but to our knowledge the last name has not been shortened.) There
was a record of a son who drowned at age 5, although Lewis's records
indicate that there may have been a daughter who died at the same time as
David King's first wife, Kala Bossel, possibly around 1870. Then David
King may have married a widow with three daughters, whose married name may
have been MENDELSON. The daughters were Anna, who became Solomon Den's
first wife; Mary Faye, whose daughter Ida May became Solomon's second wife,
and Elizabeth (Lizzie), whose surname was recorded as News and married Moses
HARRIS, whose children were indirectly related to us.

Philip married Perel Libba (Lizzie) SOLOMOVICH, daughter of Dena DUNN of
Taurage, Lithuania. Dena had been married to Zalman Eleazer SOLOMOVICH and
later married a widower, Gutel HERSHOVITZ. Both had families before and had
four children together. Philip was previously married and had one daughter,
Ada. Philip and Lizzie had two children in Lithuania, Solomon (Sol, my
grandfather), and Leah. They immigrated to Liverpool, England, and had
Rebecca, Rose, and Sarah. Lewis's family history indicates that they
immigrated to Baltimore, where Sarah may have died either there or on the
way to the United States. Then it says that Philip and Lizzie moved to
Atlanta before moving to Memphis and having the remainder of their children,
David King, Rachel, Mary, Lewis, Jules, Bessie, and Mollie Bernice.

I am trying to verify the various accounts. I am not sure of the veracity
of the account of a daughter, but it might have been possible for David King
to marry a widow whose children were later related to the family. I am also
trying to verify whether the family lived in Baltimore or merely went through
the port during immigration. Sarah died in infancy in 1886; the family had
immigrated to England around 1883 and left around 1886. By 1888 they were
in Memphis.

If you can provide me with any help regarding this particular branch of the
family, I would appreciate it.

Yizkor Book Project, May 2018 #unitedkingdom

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

It is always very gratifying to look back and see what accomplishments
we've managed to achieve in the Yizkor Book Project over the previous
month. I would now like to outline some of these accomplishments:

To begin with, in what has become a regular section of our monthly
report, once again, I am pleased to announce the completion of a
further 3 Yizkor Book projects and they are:

- Children Train - An additional book written by the indefatigable,
William Leibner, which was carefully edited by Erica S. Goldman-Brodie
and Toby Bird z”l. We are extremely indebted to receive this further
addition to our project.
- Czestochowa, Poland (The Jews of Czestochowa) - This book has been
the "baby" of Gloria Berkenstat Freund over quite a few years.
Together with the many other translation projects she works on, she
has managed to completely translate this extensive volume. Our deep
appreciation goes out to Gloria for the completion of this project
which joins a number of other books previously translated by her on
the Czestochowa community that we have online.
- Roman, Romania (The Jewish Community of Roman) A book that was
kindly translated by a number of volunteer translators and has been
meticulously edited and translations supplemented by Yocheved
Klausner, allowing us to present the completed volume online.

We now have 150 completely online and if you are "concerned" that we
soon won't have nothing to do, we do have a further 750 Yizkor book
projects that are work in progress, so there are huge challenges still
ahead of us. We are always looking out for volunteer assistance and
financial support in our endeavor to advance these projects and if you
are able to assist in any manner, I would be pleased to hear >from you.
In particular, I would like to hear >from you if you are knowledgeable
in Hebrew or Yiddish and have a background in editing and, most
importantly, are able to volunteer some time to the project, this
would be assistance that would definitely help us go forward.

And on regular sections, again, we have the honor of announcing the
publishing of two new books through the auspices of the Yizkor Books
in Print Project, bringing the total number of books published by this
group to 70 - a humble hats off to them!

- Memorial Book of 13 Shtetls of Galicia - Another book written by
William Leibner (yes, the name is now very familiar) that was
attentively edited by Ingrid Rockberger and covers 13 communities, not
all of which, previously had their own Yizkor book.
- There Was A Shtetl In Lithuania: Dusiat Reflected In Reminiscences -
A quite considerable volume (960 pages) dedicated to the community of
Dusiat (Dusetos) which was laboriously compiled by Sara Weiss-Slep and
further painstakingly edited and produced by Hedva Scop and Olga
Zabludoff.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in May.

We have added in one new book:

Monor) https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Monor/Monor.html

meticulously edited and translations supplemented by Yocheved
Klausner, allowing us to present the completed volume online.

We now have 150 completely online and if you are "concerned" that we
soon won't have nothing to do, we do have a further 750 Yizkor book
projects that are work in progress, so there are huge challenges still
ahead of us. We are always looking out for volunteer assistance and
financial support in our endeavor to advance these projects and if you
are able to assist in any manner, I would be pleased to hear >from you.
In particular, I would like to hear >from you if you are knowledgeable
in Hebrew or Yiddish and have a background in editing and, most
importantly, are able to volunteer some time to the project, this
would be assistance that would definitely help us go forward.

And on regular sections, again, we have the honor of announcing the
publishing of two new books through the auspices of the Yizkor Books
in Print Project, bringing the total number of books published by this
group to 70 - a humble hats off to them!

- Memorial Book of 13 Shtetls of Galicia - Another book written by
William Leibner (yes, the name is now very familiar) that was
attentively edited by Ingrid Rockberger and covers 13 communities, not
all of which, previously had their own Yizkor book.
- There Was A Shtetl In Lithuania: Dusiat Reflected In Reminiscences -
A quite considerable volume (960 pages) dedicated to the community of
Dusiat (Dusetos) which was laboriously compiled by Sara Weiss-Slep and
further painstakingly edited and produced by Hedva Scop and Olga
Zabludoff.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in May.

We have added in one new book:

Monor) https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Monor/Monor.html

Shalom,

It is always very gratifying to look back and see what accomplishments
we've managed to achieve in the Yizkor Book Project over the previous
month. I would now like to outline some of these accomplishments:

To begin with, in what has become a regular section of our monthly
report, once again, I am pleased to announce the completion of a
further 3 Yizkor Book projects and they are:

- Children Train - An additional book written by the indefatigable,
William Leibner, which was carefully edited by Erica S. Goldman-Brodie
and Toby Bird z”l. We are extremely indebted to receive this further
addition to our project.
- Czestochowa, Poland (The Jews of Czestochowa) - This book has been
the "baby" of Gloria Berkenstat Freund over quite a few years.
Together with the many other translation projects she works on, she
has managed to completely translate this extensive volume. Our deep
appreciation goes out to Gloria for the completion of this project
which joins a number of other books previously translated by her on
the Czestochowa community that we have online.
- Roman, Romania (The Jewish Community of Roman) A book that was
kindly translated by a number of volunteer translators and has been
meticulously edited and translations supplemented by Yocheved
Klausner, allowing us to present the completed volume online.

We now have 150 completely online and if you are "concerned" that we
