Finding 1910 US Census Images on Ancestry.com #belarus

Subject: Finding Ancestry.com 1910 Census Images


Ancestry.com has recently put up a name index for the 1910 census.
This
lets you search the census by name. But when you find a person, there
is no link to get to the census image for that person. Same problem
exists if you search for a person using the Heritage Quest CDs for
1910.

So along comes Steve Morse, Joel Weintraub, and Dave Kehs with a new
webpage to help us out. It's a form on which you enter the information
found >from the Ancestry or Heritage name search, and the census image
will be displayed. You can get to Steve's form by going to his homepage
at http://stevemorse.org and clicking on the link for "1910 Census
Images" in the census section.

If you have any questions or comments, please direct them to Steve.
His e-mail address is at the top of the website.

May update for Yizkor Book Project #general

Joyce Field
 

In May 2004 we added 3 new books and 12 updates to the Yizkor Book
Translations page. All translations can be accessed >from
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html.

It is appropriate at this time to thank all the groups that make this
project possible. First, let's recognize the internationally-based
volunteers who work on your behalf to get the translations online
within days of your submission: Lance Ackerfeld (Israel), Max Heffler
(US), and Osnat Ramaty (Germany). Without their dedication this
project could not be successful. Second, without all the donors who
have translated yizkor books or had them translated and then donated
the material to JewishGen, we would not have been successful either.
There is also a third party that should be recognized: JewishGen.
Without its support, financial and organizational, the Yizkor Book
Project could not have been established and have grown. Finally,
without the permission of the landsmanschaftn and other parties, we
could not put the translations online. This remarkable cooperative
arrangement has worked well since 1997.

Please remember that if you want to find if a yizkor book was
written about your ancestral town, you can check that online at the
Yizkor Book Database, http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html.

New books:

-Hlybokaye (Glebokie), Belarus
-Il'ya, Belarus
-Rabka Police School, Poland. This is another original Holocaust
article by Robin O'Neil, which you will find at
< http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Galicia2/Galicia2.html >
It is indexed under Regions, Galicia. You may also be interested in

Re: Anyone Visiting Cemetary on North Shore, MA? #general

LillianBernstein <lillianbernstein@...>
 

If I could piggyback on Susan Rooker's request concerning the cemetery on
the North Shore of Massachusetts called "Sons of Jacob" in Danvers.
If you visit that cemetery, you could solve a mystery in my
husband's family:
According to the death certificate of Jan. 1921 of his
great-grandmother, Bessie MAMBER, nee ADLER, Bessie was buried at "St.
Jacobs, Maple Hill, Peabody (Massachusetts)." By the time her husband,
Bernard (Berishe), died in 1937, her children had founded a "family"
cemetery, also in Maple Hill, Peabody and her husband is buried at that
cemetery.
But, I have been completely dumbfounded by the death certificate's "St.
Jacob." I think Susan Rooker has solved the mystery by asking for
information for "Sons of Jacob" cemetery, Danvers. (Danvers and Peabody are
next door to each other so the assumption does not strain credibility).
Could the very kind person photographing the gravestone for Susan
Rooker, please check the register of gravesites to see if Bessie MAMBER is
buried there? I would think I had died and gone to heaven to get a picture,
too, of Bessie's gravestone to clear up other mysteries (such as her age at
death, place of birth, etc.)
It is very difficult to do family research in Boston >from a little east
of San Francisco. I would be extremely grateful for any information.
Thank you.

help needed with 1930 census #general

Trudy Barch
 

Hello Genners,

I am at a complete loss and frustrated. I am hoping someone might be able
to guide me on my family trail.

In the 1920 census, Julius KRASNOWSKY was single living at home with his
family - age 11.

In the 1930 census, Julius is LOST. His parents and younger siblings
appear but not Julius.
At some point, Julius and his siblings changed their last name to Kay but I
could not find Julius under KAY either.

The brothers had a business in Chicago for many years and then retired to
Florida, where they subsequently died. I'm not certain if the death dates
I have are correct.

I am looking for helpful suggestions on how to find Julius in the 1930
census.

Thanks so much,

Trudy Barch
