1930 One Step Website Update #general

Joel Weintraub <jweintraub@...>
 

Group,
This is probably my last post on the project to transcribe the name of
every street in every census district for large cities for the 1930 US
Census.
It's been an interesting 14 months since I started down this road. During
that time Dave Kehs and Steve Morse joined the effort and made things a lot
easier. This post is to inform you that all our target cities are now on
the website to help you find an enumeration district number if you have a
1930 address. The last city, Chicago, was added today and was transcribed
from NARA film M1931. We have 258 cities up, and can make the claim we
have *every* city over 45,000 on the website, and quite a few of
the "smaller" ones as well. That includes cities that are in soundexed
states and cities on address indexes on NARA's M1931 series. We probably
cover about 36-37% of the people's addresses on the 1930 census. There is
still work to be done on revising files, etc, but we have met our goals.
Enjoy.

Dear community,

The consensus seemed to be that a "commercial clerk"
was either a bookkeeper or a clerk in a commercial
establishment. Thank you for your help!

I am sure Lievland is known by another name in the States. Please tell
me
what it is?
Dan, did you get an answer to this question? Lievland is a province of
Latvia known today as Vidzeme. Historically the areas of present-day
Latvia were: Courland [Kurzeme], Semgallen [Zemgale], Livland [Vidzeme],
Selburg [Selija] and Vitbsk [Latgale].

Re: Mosiek Celmejster #poland #warsaw

Roderick Lebon <rodlebon@...>
 

Dear Mr. Celmaster,

I have just been having another look at the 1870 Warsaw directory which is
an absolute gold mine of information, and I am very grateful to you for
mentioning it on the Warsaw Digest.

However, I followed it up with a look at 1865 births and spotted Mosiek
Celmejster, no 361 on film no. 0689555 (I will have to check that - think I
originally missed out a digit, and my record is downstairs). I am sure you
know about it, but thought in case you didn't, I would send it to you
anyway.

By the way, are you aware of any business directories or directories around
1880 - 1910?

Best wishes,

Karen Lebon
Kent, England

Dear Scott

In the years 1930 there were only two gymnasium ( high school)for jewish
girls in Warsaw . Probably they already existed in 1908.
One was Gymnasium Rozenfeldowa where my mother was a student in 1934-1936.

You might also look at the 1929 business book of Poland ( I did not have
time to look at it for the gymanasium yet)
Best regards
Nicole Berline, Paris

Can anyone give information about the 2nd Women's Gymnasium of Warsaw?
I recently obtained the 1908 copy of a great aunt's final report card
from
this school. She is >from Vilnius. I am not sure why she would go to
school
in Warsaw.
