Slutsk Yizkor Book has new translations #belarus

Margot Tutun <gramto@...>
 

Dear Slutskers and all the "and vicinity" researchers of the Slutsk area:

I'm very proud and happy to announce that several new portions have been
added to our Yizkor book page. These include much on life in Slutsk during
the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and we have translated almost all of
the Romanova material.

The material there is crowded with surnames, names of places and
organizations, and will give much historical insight as well as specific
information.

Please check the website:

http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/slutsk/slutsk.html

While looking over the index, if you would like a particular section
translated, that can be arranged by contacting me at:

gramto@aol.com

Contributions to the Yizkor book fund can be made by going to:

http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/yizkortrans.ihtml

We are very fortunate to have two extremely competent translators now and
the project is gaining momentum.

INTRO - researching BELLERSTEIN #germany

Eve Richardson <erchrdsn@...>
 

I having been doing genealogy for a number of years now, but know nothing
about German - Jewish genealogy.

I have gr gr gr grandparents by the name of BELLERSTEIN (or Ballerstein)
who left Germany in the early part of the 1800's and settled in Hartford
Connecticut, USA. Moses' nephew, Raphael, joined them.

I do have more detailed information, if someone is interested. Some of it
is in German, which I have to get translated.

Re: Addresses of German Archives etc (Wiesbaden) #germany

Ernest and Doris Stiefel <erstiefel@...>
 

I recommed the following book, in German, which lists all archives in
Germany,Austria and Switzerland and the individuals who work there.

ARCHIVE in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland, Oesterreich und
der Schweiz
Herausgegeben vom Verein Deutscher Archive Ardrey-Verlag, Muenster

I have the 15th edition, 1995, which does not lists e-mail or fax
addresses. I have ordered the 17th edition which will supposedly includes
e-mail addresses. It will be available in November 2002.

Since the book lists addresses and names I believe a knowledge of German
is not necessary.

MODERATOR NOTE: We receive requests for contact information for various
archives in Germany very often. I will continue to post these requests
but it would be best for GerSig members to use our website to obtain
such information. In this case the route would be as follows:

The GerSig Website "Resources" Page:

<http://www.jewishgen.org/GerSIG/resources.htm>;
Contains is a link to "Archives in Germany"

<http://www.uni-marburg.de/archivschule/fv61.html>;

At this page click on "Staatsarchive"

At the page you will now see, scroll down to "Hessen" the German Land
(state) in which Wiesbaden, Frankfurt and Mainz are located.
Under Hessen you will see a list of "Staatsarchive in Hessen"
including "Hauptstaatsarchiv Wiesbaden". A click on this will take
you to that archive's home page:

<http://www.hauptstaatsarchiv.hessen.de/>;
which contains the following information:

Hessisches Hauptstaatsarchiv, Mosbacher Str. 55, 65187 Wiesbaden [Germany]

Tombstone Photos at Mt. Moriah Cemetery, Fairview, NJ? #general

Ricki L. Zunk <rickiz@...>
 

I've tried to get information on family burials at Mt. Moriah over the past
several months. They are not responsive. Unfortunately, I live in South
Florida and cannot get there to take photos myself.

If anyone is planning on going to Mt. Moriah Cemeter in Fairview, NJ, for
their own reasons, and if you're willing and able to take a few photos of
tombstones, PLEASE contact me privately at rickiz@mindspring.com

Hope to hear >from someone soon.

NYC Birth Certs #general

Herbert Lazerow
 

In response to the comments on the early 20th century NYC
Birth Certs that ask Number of Previous Children and How Many
Now Living (in all), do not place too much weight on the accuracy
of the answers provided. The juxtaposition of the two questions
seems to confuse people, and I have seen children appear and
disappear in the same family's birth certs when there has been
no deaths. Treat it as an arrow toward further inquiry, not as a
death cert.

This sounds like Kishinev, in the area known as Bessarabia. It is
currently the capital of Moldova and spelled Chisinau.
