Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

I am working on a large collection of records for Plawno, Poland, starting
in the 1870s. Perhaps I have already made contact with everyone interested
in Plawno?

If you are interested in Plawno or any small town within about 10 miles of
Plawno (and if we have not already been in contact, please contact me at:

P.S. Plawno is located a few miles >from Radomkso, north of Czestochowa:

Re: Hungarian soldiers died or disapeared in Soviet WW2 #general

Charles Vitez <vitez@...>
 

The web-site is merely a gateway for a pay service. I would be very
surprised if they have actually got records for "munkaszolg√°latosok"
(forced labour battalions) - but they seem pretty keen to help.

Their work mostly deals with prisoners of war (surviving to be captured
would have more than a little difficult for a Jew - though there might have
been the odd one) and grave inscriptions.

I suspect that if contact KFKI-ISYS Kft in English there will be someone
there who can act as translator.

Database of Hungarian soldiers who were taken prison and died in
Soviet war camps during WW2.

It is in Hungarian language. I saw an article on this in a Finnish
paper. I couldn't try it because I don't understand Hungarian.

Hope this helps somebody.

Canadian record - in Toronto or elsewhere #general

IsraelP <zach4v6@...>
 

A few days ago, Valerie Miller Fox (with whom I have no previous contact -
and yes, mod, she gave her permission to mention her by name) was doing a
tedious search of unindexed passenger records in the Canadiana Room of the
Toronto Public Library (North York) and happened across the Montreal
arrival in 1904 of a Pikholz woman and three of her children.

This group is not just any group of Pikholz descendants - one of the three
children is my grandfather.

Valerie did not copy the passenger list itself, but passed on the
information - which I really appreciate - together with all the
information needed to find it again quickly.

Is there anyone out there who can help me get a copy of the page itself?
(I have no idea where else it can be found, other than this particular
library.)

And can someone tell me how to check St Albans records, on the assumption
that this was their next stop? (That would have to be by remote control,
since we have no LDS here in Israel.)

Thank you.

Israel Pickholtz

Ships to South Africa #southafrica

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

There are a number of resources which provide ship's names, i.e., those that
went >from Lithuania and/or other countries to England and those that went
from England to South Africa.
For those that are readily available to you, try the following:

1. For ships that went >from Lithuania to England, try the Poor Jews'
Temporary Shelter Database

2. For ships that went >from England to South Africa, try "The Cape Run".

In terms of a book similar to Morton's that has all the names and sailings
of all the ships, that has not been done. There was a database available of
ships' names at the last IAJGS in London, but it has not been published and
is not available generally. The database did not give the sailings of all
the ships, only their names.

Cape Run #southafrica

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

The particulars for the book are:

"The Cape Run, The story of the Union-Castle service to South Africa and of
the ships employed" by W.H. Mitchell and L.A. Sawyer, Publisher: Terence
Dalton Limited, Lavenham, Suffolk, England, 1987.

I ordered the book online >from a nautical book dealer in Australia many
years ago. All I needed was the book's name to identify it. It is possibly
available or can be ordered in South Africa in various bookstores such as
Clarke's or others which are similar.

The book is available in various libraries as well. I am not familiar with
which ones though.

Dear Roman, the Katzins came fom Plungyan (Plunge) in

may have also lived in Latvia.

Re: Naturalization Records #france

Peter Zavon <PZavon@...>
 

It doesn't matter if Ellis Island was in use or not. The records are
formally called the Passenger Lists of Vessels Arriving at the Port of New
York. Unfortunately, they are not indexed >from 1847 to 1897, but the basic
lists are on microfilm.

Similarly, the naturalization records are basically the same before and
after Ellis came into use. The problem is that the Feds had no central
reporting requirement until 1906 so you must check each possible court that
might have been used for the process - and those could be Federal or State
courts that were conveniently located. Much of that is indexed, however.
