<< Subject: EIDB ship date discrepancy

...The original manifest is missing >from this site, and I have found two
different dates for the arrival of the ship. EIDB says that the Batavia arrived
April 24, 1906. The Morton Allan directory says the ship arrived April 21,
1906.>>

I responded to Haviva about this and she suggested I alert the group.

This is a no-brainer. If you have the new issue of Avotaynu, you'll find my
article about using the entire backfile of The New York Times, now available
from ProQuest at many educational institutions and library systems (including
the Library of Congress--on every reading room terminal!). Not only articles
are scanned, but EVERYTHING: want ads, display ads, birth notices, death
notices, marriage announcements, engagement announcements (some for weddings
that never occurred), and, of course, SHIPPING ARRIVALS. I merely typed in
Batavia and set the date delimiter for anything prior to April 30, 1906 (in
case of a delay in posting to the paper). The issue of April 22, 1906, p. XX2,
showed that the ship had arrived on the 21st. Better yet, I was able to email
the graphic of that item to Haviva as a pdf file.

This is just one of the many handy uses of this great new resource.

Kessinow, Russia? #general

Dream Builder <dreambuilder@...>
 

Does anyone know where Kessinow, Russia would have been in 1906? Related
surnames are LISANSKY, RECHMAN, and ZEIDELMAN.

I tried shtetl seeker and got so many hits (with D-M Soundex - no hits with
exact) that I don't know where to begin. The only point of reference I have
is that it may be somewhat near to the Austria-Hungary border of 1907 as
that is supposedly the route the family I am researching took when escaping
from Russia to the United States.

Does anyone have any details of the lineage of Abraham Cahan, the noted

I have consulted many of the available biographical references for

BOOK CITE - In Search of your German Roots by Angus Baxter #germany

Stephen A. Cohen
 

Dear fellow Gersig members,
I've been increasing the tempo of my German research in comparison to
other areas and looking for more ideas on research in the Western Germany.

Although the archive our of own SIG digest and the info files of Jewishgen
are excellent, I was seeking a good book on German genealogy sources.

Two weeks ago I obtained a copy of the 4th edition of In Search of your
German Roots by Angus Baxter published by Genealogy Publishing Co., Inc.

The book has a section specifically for researchers of Jewish genealogy
and handles the basics through advanced activities in Germany proper and
has very fine insights into research into the various areas of the world
where German settled or migrated.

It lists many of the archives in Germany and the sources to contact. The
book is easy reading and very informative. Mr. Baxter makes a large number
of very practical suggestions to the reader.
I would recommend this book highly to our members. Best regards,

Stephen A. Cohen East Meadow NY (Long Island) - USA

MODERATOR NOTE: I searched the GerSig archives and did not find a prior
citation of this reference book. Our archives and our website DO contain
references to many other basic resource books on German Jewish Genealogy.

When posting information about a book, please include the following:
Title
Author
Publisher
Year of Publication (usually the year of copyright or latest edition)
Number of pages
Some description (quantity / quality of illustrations, index, tables, etc.)
AND the ISBN number which will make it easier for members to obtain a
book through libraries. Thanks. MOD1
