Validity of age on Ellis Island manifests #general

Leslie Weinberg <artsoul@...>
 

My mother-in-law says she was just 99 this last October. This would mean
she was born in 1904. However, on the Ellis Island manifest, which shows
her, her mother and her brother, who arrived here in February 1906, she
is listed as one month old. It would seem to me that whoever was
writing down the names would know the difference between a two-year-old
and an infant. What could the answer to this one be? Her birthday was
more or less "randomly" assigned by her mother, who said she was born
around Succoth. Leslie Weinberg

I posted 3 documents to Viewmate hoping to find antecedents >from my
KAFLOWITZ family. It looks like only one has proven that it might be
successful for me and that is #3546, a marriage certificate between
KAWFIEWICZ AND CHMIEL.

Anyone who wishes can view these documents at Viewmate to see if they may
apply to your research since #'s 3545 and 3547 appear to be other names
than those I am researching. I believe the language is Russian.

Good luck, and since they didn't pan out for me, I hope that someone else
out there with Bialystok connections finds them useful.

Looking for Lubomir Braun #poland

Anna Buchowska <piskunek@...>
 

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a Polish teacher >from Bialystok looking for any records about
Lubomir Braun, who "died in a German camp". That's the notice I have
found on the cover of one of our school library books. The book was a
gift >from his mother. I was intrigued by the notice and I would like to
find out more, if possible.

I have been interested in Jewish issues for a few years and I am
presently running an interest group in my school called "Judaica".

I would be grateful for any help.

Yours sincerely

regarding the International Summer Seminar scheduled for July in Jerusalem.

Subject: The amazing 24th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy

Some questions have been asked about our website
<www.jewishgen.org/jerusalem2004> and when we are going to post the
registration form and program. The short answer is by the middle of
February.
The program committee is evaluating an enormous number of very
excellent papers that have been proposed. We promised to get this job
done by the end of January. Since proposals are still coming in, even
though the deadline was the end of December, we extended our own
deadline by a number of weeks. Believe me when I tell you that the
program will be positively outstanding. We have so many excellent
proposals - more than twice the number we can possibly have presented
- that we are going to be able to pick and chose only the absolute
best.
Hotel rates are already posted on our website - [direct link:
www.ortra.com/jgen2004/registration.asp]
I think you will be more than happy with the inexpensive rates we
have arranged. And don't forget that those rates include all service
charges and taxes as well as our famous, gigantic Israeli breakfast!!
[For myself, that is all I can manage to eat in a day!] The rates per
adult person in a double room are - are you ready for this? - between
$40 and $48. For sure it would cost you more just to stay at home! So
come to our magnificent and unique city of Jerusalem, which was one
of the official seven wonders of the world!
Our Conference is not only going to be outstanding as far as Archival
cooperation and input, but it is probably going to be the best
conference in terms of quality and breadth that the IAJGS has ever
had. We have prepared several databases which we have put on CDs and
which will be given free to full paying registrants. These include:
--The Memorials of Vanished Communities (the very first cataloging of
Israeli memorials of the Jewish Communities destroyed during the
Shoah);
--1875 Montifiore Census of the Jewish Population of Eretz Israel;
--Helkat Mehokek (Translation of Hebrew tombstone inscriptions found on
Mount of Olives);
--An Index to the Jacobi Collection of Family Trees;
--Sephardic and Mizrachi Genealogical Research in Israel;
--Index of Family and Private Archives at the Central Archives for the
History of the Jewish People (a collections of private and family
archives);
--A guide to the Archives and Archival Material for Genealogical Use in
Israel;
and more!
If you have any questions, join our online discussion group
"Jerusalem 2004 Discussion Group" for which you can register >from our
home page: <www.jewishgen.org/jerusalem2004>.
We look forward to hearing >from you and to seeing you in Jerusalem

Re: Litvak relatives from late 18th & early - mid 19th C. #lithuania

Gerald Gaffin <shirl_geg@...>
 

I am researching the antecedents of Yaacov Dovid Berman, who migrated >from
Zagare, to the Manchester area of England, around 1890. He was born about
1848, died 1931; his first wife was Kayle Rochel Leib, who was born around
1853 and died in the UK in 1917, but there was also, apparently, a second
wife [ Fanny ] - on whom there is little or no data.

Yaacov Dovid, a Talmudic scholar,was the son of Moshe Berman/ Behrman ;
Hebrew - Bet, Ayin, Raish, Mem, Aleph, Nun - according to his tombstone . To
date, I have been unable to trace Moshe or any other possible antecedents
of Y.D. Berman, who was my GGF, and I would appreciate input
from other LitvakSIG members.
