Photos of Latvia #latvia

Barry Shay <bbshay@...>
 

I have run across a great web site containg lots of photos of Latvia's
cities and countryside. The URL is http://www.latvia360.lv/ and the photos
can be seen >from a point of view that revolves 360 degrees, if you have the
right software (which most users have). Without the software you can still
see the photos in the usual manner. There is a choice of English, Russian,
or Latvian.

Could it be Balta?
There is a Balta in the Ukraine, I think it is about 100 mi North of Odessa.
I know that at various times it was in the Podolsky and Odessa provinces
(or gubernia or whatever term was at the time); Perhaps in was in Cherson
as well at one time.

Subject Line: Re-INTRODUCTION

Hello Sig Lists,

My name is Julie and I have just re-joined the group again, after a
wonderful trip to England to meet with some of my lost relatives.

I have been doing genealogy research for +- 5 years and I consider myself to
be an intermediate in doing Genealogy research.

Africa.

My native language is English.

I consider myself advanced in using a computer. My experience in using the
Internet is fairly good.

Re: Travel to Romania / Moldova re EDINET / Yedinitz #romania

ESIGmail@...
 

Regarding travel to EDINET (fka Yedinitz or Yedinitsy), the Cemtery Project
(within the JG Research Division) recently had a photographer in EDINET
photographing approximately 500 headstones in the Jewish Cemetery. Perhaps they
could provide details and contact info for the photographer who could suggest
hotels etc.

Supposedly only 480 stones were legible enough of the thousands in the EDINET
Jewish Cemetery. Past travelers to EDINET were lucky enough to find a
resident in EDINET named ACKERMAN. Perhaps another reader to this forum could
provide contact info for this resident I have had no recent luck.

My mgreatgrandfather, Jacob KAFLOWITZ, arrived on November 22, 1909 aboard the
Merion at the Port of Philadelphia. How can I view his manifest on that ship?

I assume it was to have arrived in the Port of New York but was directed to
Philly instead.

The database today contains about 11,000 names, not several hundred. The
several hundred figure (700 to be exact) mentioned by Bernard is merely the
number of names of women and children listed in the handwritten register of
SS Patria survivors who were interned at Atlit Camp.

Find the names of hundreds of detaines in the database.
Full story at: www.jpost.com Scroll to Section/Jewish World/It's All
Relative: Accessing Atlit, or http://tinyurl.com/xw4v

More are sought. If you know of anyone who entered (pre-1948) pre-State of
Israel in a clandestine or illegal manner, please contact the Atlit Camp
Database Manager, Naomi Izhar. Information and email address is in the
article.
About 120,000 "ma'apilim" (clandestine or illegal immigrants, Hebrew) are
known to have arrived pre-1948. To date, only 11,000 have completed
questionnaires.
Naomi also believes there are many more such individuals who never
registered officially (the 120,000 figure represents those officially
registered). The possibility exists that many thousands of these people
and/or their descendants are now living around the world.
For more information, please contact me.

I just re-joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for +- 5
years (or months). I consider myself to be a novice in doing German Jewish
Genealogy research.

I live in Edenvale, Gauteng, a small town just east of Johannesburg, South
Africa.

My native language is English.

I consider myself advanced in using a computer. My experience in using the
Internet is fair.

My primary research goals in this instant are to find out: anything and as
much about all of them as possible about the GOLDSTEIN, SCHANMAN and
TABACKNICK side of my family

GOLDSTEIN - see below for places they lived in at various times

Froem b. +- 1838 married Rose SCHANMAN b.+- 1840 (?) Berdichev,

Chepsel b +_ 1864 Jerusalem, married Bealy (Fanny Bella) TABACHNICK +_

Re: BMD records for Mlawa & Gora Kalwaria #general

Harriet Brown
 

Naidia Woolfe asks whether records for Mlawa and Gora Kalwaria have been
indexed and are on-line.

Some of the Mlawa records have been indexed and are contained within
JRI-Poland's database. The LDS records for Mlawa cover most of the years
between 1829 and 1865. Of those, the Mlawa Shtetl Co-op has indexed the
years 1829-1847, and the records of those indices are on-line, thanks to
JRI-Poland. Of the remaining years, some have been completed but there are
still years to be transcribed, and we welcome volunteers.
