Searching for pre-war photos #lithuania

steven weiss <szome@...>
 

I am researching the shtetl of Panemunelis (Panimunok- 5555 2529). The
following four captions belong to the only pre-war photos >from Panemunelis
which I have seen. They can be found as part of the Rokiskis Yizkor Book.
Will anyone be at the conference in Israel that has access to any other
photographs for this shtetl? Or can anyone advise me as to where in Israel
(or anywhere else) I might be able to find any other photos? Thank you.

"H" Code on 1930 Census #general

philafrum
 

Genners,

I noticed on a page >from the 1930 census >from Philadelphia that several wives were
listed in Column 6 (relation) in the following way:

Name "Wife-H"

The husbands in both cases on this page were listed as "Head" of their respective
families.

Is there a different or special meaning to the "H" as it applies to the wives in
these cases?

Thanks for your help.

Spouses' Parents #general

David Edelman <pappapeach@...>
 

Dear Fellow Genners;
On the discussion of listing the parents of a spouse, I personally like to do
this. If you have a bunch of common names in your family like I do (EDELMAN,
FEINSTEIN, STEIN), and you want to have something that your descendants can
continue, if you do not leave enough information, the future generations might
accidentally look in the wrong direction. By listing the parents of the spouse,
your descendants and the descendants on the in-laws side (who would then be
related), will have an easier time of connecting, since they now have the correct
names to look for. But again, this is purely a personal thing, since in genealogy,
you can list what ever you what, as long as it is true and can be proven. If
someone wants to simply list their own self and go straight up >from there, not
listing even their own siblings, that too is up to them.
David Edelman,
San Francisco

RUDA R Us (in Przasnysz) #general

Marty Meyers <meyers01@...>
 

I had previously found a couple of RUDA connections to my ZYLBERMAN and
ALLENSZTEJN family in Przasnysz but now it forms a major branch on my family tree.

1. Zelek RUDA, son of Gdal and Chaia Sura, married Ryfka ALLENSZTEJN, daughter of
Leyzor Zelkowicz ALLENSTEJN who was the brother of my gggg-grandmother Laja [nee
ALLENSZTEJN] BRZYSKIER.

2. When Ryfkak died, Zelek RUDA married Liba ZYLBERMAN, 1st cousin of my
ggg-grandfather Wigdor Zylberman (who married Malka, daughter of Laja [nee
ALLENSZTEJN] BRZYSKIER)

I just received the 1866 death record for Gdal RUDA and found that his wife Chaia
Sura was born Chaia Sura ALLENSZTEJN, daughter of Zelek, and was in fact the
sister of my gggg-gm Laja. Therefore, Zelek RUDA was clearly named after his
mother's father Zelek ALLENSZTEJN.
Amazing how obvious things are in retrospect!!

So instead of a few connections, all of the descendants of Gdal RUDA are now on my
ALLENSZTEJN family tree, descending >from Zelek's father Abraham ALLENSZTEJN who
was born in the later 17th or early 18th century.

Descendants of Gdal and Chaia Sura [nee ALLENSZTEJN] RUDA:
Gnendla, Ruchl, Laia, Zelek, Cypra

GnendlaR married Jankief ZYLBERMAN. Their daughter Cywa married Smul Pejsak
Moskowicz and their daughter Dwora married Aron PURZYCKI. CypraR married Abram
Stejn >from Chorzele.

There are some other RUDA branches in Przasnysz that have not yet been connected
to Gdal but are almost certainly related.
If this (or any other RUDAs) sound familiar, please contact me privately at
<meyers01@comcast.net>

Hello Stacy,
If you do a place search for Polk part of Iowa in the Family History Library
Catalog...

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library/FHLC/frameset_fhlc.asp

And then click on the "naturalization & citizenship" topic, you can see what they
have on microfilm/fiche for Polk County. You can order the microfilm/fiche >from
local LDS Family History Centers for a reasonable fee.

Good luck with your search.

himself, first), Nelson Glueck (US Reform rabbi; premier Palestine archaeologist).
I'm still searching for a connection between my ggm Lea Feuchtwanger (of

It helps make the "begats" list more fun and draws in family members who might
otherwise shun genealogy.

Yichus can be positively infectious. Did I mention that I'm myself a (not yet
