Vishniak? #general

Hilary Henkin <hilcat@...>
 

Dear group
Some time ago, there was a discussion of genealogical variations related
to vishniak, the cherries and vodkahome-made liquer. The query was
posted, but the responses must have been sent privately, because there is
no other mention in the archives.
I've done an internet and newsgroups search, and found only one
incomplete set of directions.

I woudl appreciate a recipe for vishniak. Please send along! Of course,
please reply privately.

Regards,
Hilary Henkin

obtaining original petititon of naturalization #general

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

Fraida Cohen <yeruchem@bestweb.net> asked for "the quickest and least
expensive way" to obtain original petitions for naturalization (1924 and
1931).

In my experience, the cheapest (free!) and easiest way to obtain
naturalization records is to fill out Form G-639, "Freedom of
Information Act/Privacy Act Request"

http://uscis.gov/graphics/formsfee/forms/g-639.htm

and mail it to

FOIA/PA Officer
Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services
ULLICO Building
425 I St NW 2nd Flr
Washington DC 20536

Depending on how detailed your information is, the BCIS will put your
search on a simple (fast) or complex track. It usually takes two or
three months to get a reply -- longer on the complex track.

Be sure to request a copy of the Declaration of Intention as well as the
Petititon for naturalization.

Note that the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services is the new
name of the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

December Meeting of Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Philadelphia #general

JGLois@...
 

December Meeting of Jewish Genealogical Society of
Greater Philadelphia

Date: December 8, 2003
Time: 7:45 PM
Place: The Newman Building at Gratz College
Old York Road (Route 611) and Melrose Avenue=20
Melrose Park, PA
********
Topic: Research in Central & Eastern Europe
The Changing Geography and Other Challenges

Speaker:Gary Mokotoff
********
The political upheavals of the past few years
in Central and Eastern Europe are not new to this
geographic area. There have been constant boundary
changes for the past 200 years. With these changes
come changes in town names and country
names as the incoming political groups seek
to divorce themselves >from the political groups
of the past. This creates a challenge to
genealogists who are confronted with documents
from prior eras with town names that no longer
exist and even country names of the past.
This lecture will discuss strategies for
overcoming this hurdle.

Gary Mokotoff is an author, lecturer and leader
of Jewish-American genealogy. He is the first
person to receive the Lifetime Achievement
Award of the International Association of Jewish
Genealogical Societies (IAJGS). He is the
author of a number of books including the
award-winning Where Once We Walked, a gazetteer
which provides information about 23,500 towns
in central and eastern Europe where Jews lived
before the Holocaust, How to Document Victims and Locate
Survivors of the Holocaust, and Getting Started
in Jewish Genealogy.

Mr. Mokotoff is also known for his application
of computers to genealogy. Among his accomplishments
is co-authorship of the Daitch-Mokotoff soundex
system; the JewishGen Family Finder, a database
of ancestral towns and surnames being researched by some
60,000 Jewish genealogists throughout the world;
and the Consolidated Jewish Surname Index.

For New Members

Conversion from Hebrew Calendar dates... #france

Rosanne D. Leeson <leeson1@...>
 

Pierre and others,

The JOS Conversion Calendar on JewishGen (LEARN "JewishGen
tools")provides conversion >from the Gregorian calendar to the Hebrew
calendar, and vice versa.

According to it, the Gregorian date of Rosh Hodesh (first day of the
new month) of Tevet 5507 corresponds to Wednesday, December 14, 1746.

Don't overlook this excellent tool that JewishGen makes available!

Missouri family search #general

Arnold Davidson <arnoldbd@...>
 

I am searching for information about the family of Zalmen ZELINCOSSER.
His brother emigrated under the name of Jacob Zelingosher, changed his
name to Jack Seliger and settled in New York. I haven't found Zalman's
emigration data but his wife and child are listed on the EIDB as Basse
Zelincosser and Esther. They arrived in 1913 >from Shadova (Kovno
Gubernia) and their destination was Zalman Selincosser at 511 E. ????,
Kansas City, MO.

I can find no record of them by that name in the 1920 census. I presume
that they changed their name as did Zalman's brother, Jacob, however, I
can find no record of them under the name of Seliger so they probably
changed the name to something else.

The EIDB also shows the arrival in 1908 of "Ianhel Zelenkosse", son of
Zalman Shlomo in Shadova. "Ianhel" was probably Yankel, which is a
Yiddish variant of Jacob; destination was Kansas City. Yankel appears
to be different than Zalman's brother Jacob. The ship manifests show
Yankel arriving in 1908 at age 18 and Jacob arroving in 1905 at age 22.

Some possibilities for the name that Zelinkosser was changed to in Kansas
City are Seliger or Schlesinger.

Does any of this sound familiar to anyone? Does anyone have any ideas on
how I might pursue this further?

As far as I could understand, Roch Hodech is the first day of the month.
Teveth 5507 seems to be December 1746. In this case, the marriage was
supposed to occur before 1st December 1746. If I'm not wrong... and
if my Jewish Calendar is right.

Has anyone ever noticed the Surname BINEMBAUM in any of their searches

Someone sent me an e-mail indicating that they might have heard of a
BINEMBAUM Surname >from the Rzeszow area.

This could be plausible because Brisk or Brest-Litvosk, Russian Poland
(now called Brest, Belarus) where I believe my grandfather was born in
1881 is only about 327 km Northeast >from Rzeskow. Even in the mid to
late 1800's this migration would be possible.

S/S Haverford and arrived in Philadelphia, PA USA on May 28, 1906.
Shortly thereafter he traveled to New York City and in 1910 we find him
