Hello subscribers,

I'm glad that Flo took the time to remind us that we have received so much
from Jewishgen and hopefully everyone will support the processing of the
many new sources of data acquired by this organization to help us in the
research that we all are pursuing. It is difficult to find the funds to
support several areas - those lucky researchers whose ancestors seem to come
from a smaller defined geographical area are fortunate enough to not have
this problem.

Some supporters, including myself, have elected to contribute $18.00 USA per
month which is automatically charged to my credit card to support Jewishgen
specifically. Susan King sends an e-mail verifying when this is done. I
wanted to point out that this can be done if anyone was interested.

"1) Is there a way to look at all the names of persons who sailed on a
certain ship on a certain date?
2) Is there a listing of all the ships that sailed to Ellis Island or any
other method to confirm that information regarding a ship arrival on
naturalization papers is indeed accurate?"

Sure, look at the manifest, and you will see all the passengers on that ship
on that date; you can usually do that at the EIDB. You can get a listing on
microfilm of all the ships that sailed into New York >from the FHL or
NARA-but what that will tell you I don't know.

Re: Donations to SIGs and Jewishgen #belarus

jeanne4_98nospam@yahoo.com <jeanne4_98@...>
 

I have read with interest the comments about the need to donate money.
Obviously all the SIGs and Jewishgen itself need money to operate. The
SIGs and JewishGen run on both money and volunteerism. BOTH are needed
to continue accumulating and disseminating this wonderful body of
knowledge.

I have been offended more than once by well-meaning but boorish people
who have written me personally to suggest that I donate money when I've
recounted some small success due at least in part to what I've learned
here. I am also offended that some SIGs don't want donations of less
than $100. Some of us can't afford to give that much at once. Why
aren't smaller donations welcome?

In my own case, I "retired" some twenty years early due to a chronic
illness. I didn't have the time I expected to build a retirement nest
egg. My means are small, but my heart is big and I have the time to
donate when I am well enough. No doubt I am not the only one.

It seems to me that if we all donate what we can--both monetarily and
otherwise--that this project will continue to flourish. And may I
suggest that it is most improper for anyone to write another personally
to tell that that person to donate money at a particular time.

Thanks for letting me have my say.

Files for Novogrudok District Records - Closed after Sept. 15 #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

I have just been notified that access to records for Novogrudok District
will be closed for a long time after September 15, 2002. The archive
frequently closes portions of their holdings to do preservation and
restoration. After they are finished, the records are again made available.

The following shtetls are impacted:

Novogrudok
Vsyelub
Gorodishchye
Dyelyatichi
Yeremichi
Koryelichi
Kroshin
Lyubcha
Mir
Nyegnyevichi
Novaya Mysh
Polonka
Snov
Stvolovichi
Turets
Tsyrin
Baranovichi/Razvodovo

As most of you know, I do not recommend researchers. When a researcher fails
to find your family records in the archives because they just aren't there
and you get negative report >from a researcher, I don't want to hear the
complaints. That being said, one of the researchers who I have personally
used is offering to do research prior to Sept. 15 for the shtetls listed
above. Time is of the essence as there is less then a month left before the
records will be closed.

If you want to get something about your families >from these places you must
contact the researcher ASAP.

Here are his terms:
Maximum of USD 175 if he reconstructs the family tree down to the mid XVIII.
There is a basic charge of USD 75, which is part of the above amount, which
must be paid if the researcher finds nothing and sends a negative report. If
you want two surnames researched the maximum charge is USD 220, 3 surnames
will be USD 260.

I have no other information other then what I have noted above. All
arrangements, payments, questions, etc., are between you and the researcher
in Minsk <minskhist@...>.

This message is posted as a service to members. I have no financial
interest and this should be considered a one time announcement of a
genealogical service as allowed by JewishGen guidelines.

Searching for Jerry Kliot who was translating the
Sharkovshinna/Sharkovschizna Yiskor Book (Note this is in the Disna region of
Belarus now, was considered White Russia and Litvak. Glebokoye/Glebokie is
the largest nearby town and Vilnius/Vilna the closest city to the West of
border with Lithuania and Vitebsk to the North is further.) I last posted a
message to Jewishgen about this in 1996, according to an archive that my
newly found cousin Josie Barnett has dug up and inquired about.....
Could someone tell us where to find the translated yiskor book now and is it
online and where? What became of and where is Jerry Kliot reachable?

Toronto feedback and future conferences #belarus

I fully support the comments of Allen Katz and others regarding the
availability in some form of meetings and talks to those unable to
attend.

There are lots of genealogists in the southern hemisphere too - we'd
love to be able to attend and not be excluded by the tyranny of distance
(and cost) every year.

To all those who help the Belarus SIG 'tick over' - special thanks. It
is greatly appreciated.

Searching for Hoffman-Swinburn Records #general

Yendor62@...
 

Hello Genners,
After more than a year of searching in vain for Ellis Island records of
my grandmother and her first child, the manifest that had been
unavailable has now been opened. My grandmother, Feige Leah Abelovitz
(listed on the records as Fedge Abelovitz) and her young daughter Rochel
(aged 36 months or 3 years, six months - mistakenly listed as 36 years),
arrived at Ellis Island on the Kroonland on April 12, 1906. The mother
was admitted, but the child was listed as *Died in Hospital*. The
manifest does not indicate which hospital. I would like to find the
records for Hoffman Island and Swinburn Island, so that I can discover
more about my little aunt. I have read the Rafael Guber article, *When
Genealogists Read History, Part 2* (Ancestry Magazine, May/June 1997).
If he or anyone else who has additional info about these two islands would
contact me, perhaps I could find out where Rochel is buried, or if she was
cremated. Searches are also being made of the three cemeteries where
most of those who died in hospital were apparently buried.
Thanks in advance to all.
