Viewmate VM1665 Recognize name of town in Ukraine from manifest #general

Joe Newman <pcmanager@...>
 

I was surprised to find that family members who had always said they were
from Ekaterinaslov (Dnepropetrovsk) were shown as emigrating >from there but
with a different birthplace in Russia.

Does anyone recognize this town name?

Searching: LENCZER > Ranaana, Israel, Post WWII #general

desrx <desrx@...>
 

I am looking for the family of a David Lenczner. After surviving the camps,
he relocated to Rananna, Israel. He has since passed on. I have been told
he had at least two children, a son and daughter, but I am not sure if it
would be proper to give their names here. It is a very vague time frame so
I presume the children were born in the 1940's or 1950's. I believe David
might have been >from the Szczekociny, Sosnowiec area.

I would like to contact the family. Not sure if they are related to my
Lenczner family but they are connected to my Kalkopf clan.

Re: Vital Records in Lithuania #general

sallybru <sallybru@...>
 

Check LitvakSig for vital records of Lithuania-there are a lot. The
Lithuanian archivists have been very helpful in finding and helping to
index and publish the information.

Unfortunately, if some particular clerk told your friend that records do
not exist for Lasdai, it is possible that that is true; it is also
possible that the family actually has records in another town in the area,
for which records exist.

It is also possible that your friend was in the wrong archive and the
records exist elsewhere.

It is also possible that the clerk was lazy and didn't want to be bothered-
I have run into that in New York City Archives. Now I know who to talk to
there.

Help with missing EIDB manifest #general

Jenny Schwartzberg
 

Dear Genners,
I have found on Ellis Island a passenger manifest that I want to look
at, but there is no original manifest showing, only the text manifest is
available. When I went to Steve Morse's missing manifests website and
tried to view the microfilm, I went back and forth through it and did not
find the ship. I think only part of the microfilm is on view. Could
someone possibly look at the actual microfilm for me and copy it? This is
for a family reunion on August 17th, so there's some urgency.
The SS President Grant, April 21, 1910, >from Hamburg, p. 215, lines 17-19
Chane Katschkes age 25 >from Iwankow (Ivankov, Kiev gubernia), Russia
Feigo Katschkes age 4 >from Iwankow
Gittel Katschkes age 3 >from Iwankow
The missing manifest page says they are on microfilm T715 1457 frames
1-1259. I and the KATSCHKES (now KUCHECK) descendants would be most grateful!
Yours,
