Hi,

I'm not certain doing the tombstones first is the best decision for a
couple of reasons, but I don't have time to spell it out right now in
this email.

Personally, I'm far more interested in possible records in Grodno
because my immediate family was >from Zabludow and there are no records
from Zabludow either in Zabludow itself or in Bialystok, but I've long
suspected that there may be some old records >from Zabludow in Grodno. It
would be nice to finally find out. I think we will find that people on
the list have different interests.

I'm mostly encouraged that this group is going to accomplish something
significant, and in the larger scheme of things that's what I think is
important. If I have to wait longer to find out about records in Grodno
that no so bad, if something else of value is being accomplished.

To paraphrase other members of our group, I also support Marjorie Holden's concern about recording all the information possible >from the tombstones in Bialystok before they have all deteriorated beyond readability. I am pretty sure some of my MOED, SEINER, WEIN, and other relatives were buried there. Let's find out concretely how we can best go about this.

SZCZEBRZESZYN, JRI-Poland Zamosc PSA project #poland

Kirsten Gradel <kmgradel@...>
 

Fellow Researchers,

Jewish Records IndexDear ing-Poland (JRI-Poland) is pleased to announce that ALL indices to the Jewish vital records of Szczebrzeszyn not filmed by the Mormons are now indexed by the JRI-Poland team in Warsaw as part of the ongoing Zamosc PSA project. The file will be added to the JRI-Poland database once the town is fully funded.

ABOUT THE TOWN
Szczebrzeszyn is located in the Province/Gubernia of Lublin, 67 km SSE
of Lublin at coordinates 50 42'/ 22 58'. It had a Jewish population of 2518 in 1897, 2644 in 1921.

Szczebrzeszyn is located in the middle of a ring of other record-keeping
towns: Zamosc, Krasnobrod, Bilgoraj, Jozefow Bilgoraj, Frampol, Turobin,
Izbica/Tarnogora. If you have family interests in any of these towns or
surrounding areas it is worth your while to look at Szczebrzeszyn also.

ABOUT THE DATABASE

The PSA database covers the years 1871-75 and 1890-01 and contains 3295
BMD entries:

Births: 1623
Grooms: 316
Brides: 306
Deaths: 930

Here are some of the surnames mentioned 20 or more times:

BAJCZER, BECHER, BEGLAUBTER, BERGER, BIBERMAN, BOREK, CITRYN,
CUKER, DRAJER, ERLICH, FARBER, FEDER, FINK, FRANK, KANDEL, KLAJNER,
MAJMAN, MILDYNER, MUTERPERL, RAJBER, SZER, SZPER, SZPRYNGER, SZTARKER, SZYC, WAJNBLAT, WAKS, ZILBER.

A complete list of all the surnames in the records can be found at

http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/szczebrzesyn_surn.htm

and if you want to know how many times your family names appear, you are
welcome to contact me.

To find out more about the PSA project, status of the Zamosc PSA Project
and the town - click on the following URLs

http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/status.htm#Zamosc

http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/town/szczebrzeszyn.htm
(please note the link to the Surname list on the town page does not work
yet, you must use the link I have given above).

You can also read about the town in the Pinkas Hakehillot translation at
JewishGen's Yizkor section.

We cannot publish this database until JRI-Poland has recouped the
expenses incurred by buying the index pages and having them entered into spreadsheets by our Warsaw team. For the future years there are BMD records at the Szczebrzeszyn USC (town Archive) for 1902 - 1938, some of which will be available for indexing in the near future after transfer to Zamosc State Archives.

We have set the funding target for Szczebrzeszyn at $700 - a bit higher
than the actual cost, for several reasons:

1. One generous researcher has already contributed $425 to this project,
so we only need $275 more to reach the target.

2. We think it fair to keep a bit of that donation ready for the next
couple of years.

3. Szczebrzeszyn is one of the bigger towns in the Zamosc area, with
many interested researchers who should also have a chance<g> to help get their town's indices published. Even a small donation will go a long way.

Researchers who contribute 90 USD or more are eligible to obtain the town's
complete PSA database as an Excel file for personal research, and this includes future PSA files as we receive them. Not only will this enable you to see the information well in advance of its general availability in the JRI-Poland Searchable Database; it will let you look at ALL indices >from Szczebrzeszyn, will allow you to search for given names, might jog your memory about a long forgotten family name or a grandmother's elusive
maiden name.

The LDS years for Szczebrzeszyn 1866-70 and 1876-89 are also indexed
(awaiting publication) and I am willing to look for names of interest in
that database for those of you who help us reach our target.

TO CONCLUDE: Szczebrzeszyn is now indexed for the full stretch of years

1826-1901 - not bad at all!
Please show your appreciation for the work done by all the people
involved in the JRI-Poland's effort. Behind these databases are hundreds of volunteers donating many hours of dedicated work to help their fellow
researchers and to document their shtetls.

Here's how to make a contribution:

Re: 1892 New York City Census look up #general

Rich Lowenthal <richlowenthal@...>
 

I believe that there are no surviving 1892 state census records for New
York county (Manhattan). There was an 1890 police census for Manhattan,
although I have found those records to be very spotty.

For a listing of which census records are available in the NY State
library, you can check out http://www.nysl.nysed.gov/genealogy/nyscens.htm
. These records do not circulate, but it will give you some idea whether
records for a specific county exist in the state library.

Dear genners,
I there anybody who could look up 141 Division Street in Manhattan in
the 1892 New York City Census to see who is living there? There was a
Paley Photography Studio at that location, some years later. I the New
York City Street Directory, a Moses Paley was listed as living there.
I am looking for him and any other person who is listed as living at
that address.
Thank you so much,

I'm looking for the members of the WEINTROB family who may provide
information about Eva Seldes Weintrob, whose name is entered on the
American Immigrant Wall of Honor at Ellis Island. Does anyone know
anything about this family? Information in the JGFF is outdated and was of
no help so far. I'm looking for Eva Seldes, born 1886 in Boguslav, Kiev
gubernia, Russia, and arrived at NY in 1906. Does this ring any bells?
Also, if a family and names are listed on the Wall of Honor at Ellis
Island, how to find out who did submit this information?
Please respond privately.
