Re: How to research a name change? #general

Merle Kastner asked about name changes and how to research them. In reply,
a genner said:

"When one applied for citizenship a certificate of arrival was issued to
verify that the person did indeed enter the US, on what date and which
port."

This is fine-if your family came late. But you need to remember the
naturalization process changed over time. When my family came, and for
most people who had naturalizations before 1906, they were asked little
and the various citizenship papers say little. You get only "I give up
allegiance to the King of ____". One cousin was asked, in 1906, where he
was born (Marseilles of all things, he came >from Polish Russia) and that
he gives upallegiance to the King (crossed out for Czar) of Russia. And
the names of 2 witnesses.

No port, no date, no names.

You are lucky if you have people who came later-at least for genealogical
information.

Jewish saloon owners and notaries in Lithuania? #lithuania

My great-great grandfather, Jacob(?) Berbachek >from Vilna owned a saloon and was a notary public in Lithuania. How was this possible? I thought that one of the Czars (Alexi?) had opened up the liquor trade to the Jews, but I am not sure.

JewishGen Annual New Year Donor Appeal #southafrica

Bramie Lenhoff <lenhoff@...>
 

Dear Friends:

As we prepare to celebrate the New Year please take a moment to consider
that JewishGen provides us with the vital source for our ongoing
genealogical research. JewishGen is still one of the only genealogical
sites free to us, but not free to JewishGen, which must bear the monthly expense
of providing all the resources we use daily without a second thought. These
are costs that must be met to overcome the current shortfall.

To continue as a public service institution, JewishGen has launched the
first Annual New Year Donor Appeal. The goal is to raise $300,000 to carry
us through to the end of 2002 and to acquire the necessary hardware and
software applications for improved databases scheduled to begin going online
by October. There are two million records >from Yad Vashem and other
sources waiting to be made available to us!

The SA SIG is currently working on various projects and the costs of
preparing and keeping them available on line must be met before they are
added to the JewishGen servers.

The financial support of each and every one of us is needed if JewishGen is
to continue as the only free site for Jewish genealogical research. Give
what you can afford, be it $25, the suggested annual minimum, or $100 (or
more) which will enroll you in the JGFFAlert. This is a system that informs
you via immediate e-mail if another researcher enters data into the JGFF
that has the potential of linking to your family names.

Please go now to
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/contribute.ihtml . With your
permission, your name will be listed on a special 2002 Annual New Year Donor
Appeal recognition site. We are asking that all our users make a donation
to the very
best of their financial ability. Consider scheduling a monthly deduction
from your credit card if this works best for you.
On behalf of JewishGen and the SA SIG, our very best wishes
for a healthy, happy and peaceful New Year.

Re: BALBERISHKI #general

I would like to know if anyone is familiar with the following family from
Wilkowiski (Vilkaviskis), Lithuania:

Sheine BALBERISHKI, born 1938, parents Zavil and Beile BALBERISHKI, resident of the Kovner Yiddisher Kinderheim, Kestucio 34, Kaunas, Lithuania. This was a children's orphanage.

I am not researching this family, per se, but only this child and her
parents and whether she survived. Therefore, I do not have any other
information on this family name.

Thank you,
