1901 British Census question and information #general

Daniel S. Katz <dsk@...>
 

Hi,

I'm having quite a problem locating a family in the 1901 census, and
was looking for ideas. The two members of the family I am certain
were in England were:
Sarah Himmelspring, age 56 and her son Israel, age 24, both born in
Rovno. The father, Jacob/Yankel, is listed in one of the 1895 death
indices (though with the last name Himelspring with a bar over the m).

They are not under Himmelspring, Himelspring, Himmel(anything),
Himel(anything), H(any vowel)(anything)spring, or
Hi(anything)m(anything)l(anything). I also looked for any male Israel
of age 24 +/- 5 born in Russia or Poland, and any female Sarah of age
56 +/- 10 born in Russia or Poland without success.

Any ideas?

Also, I purchased three census pages which were not of use to me, and
which I would be happy to send anyone who might want them. The
families on these pages are:

Using a map out of the yizkor Book #general

caren b rubio <carenru@...>
 

Dear Genners:
I need your help: I'd like to use the map that is included in our
Yizkor book.
I want to include it in a book I've written about my family. Do I
need permission to use it? If so, >from whom? The Meicheter Society has
long since been dissolved since most of the original members, including my
parents, have either passed away or are too old and infirm to attend
meetings.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thank you.

Re: Landsmanshaft organization Query #general

LindaJim Morzillo <jmorzil1@...>
 

Jerome Seligsohn asked:
<< I have often pondered the question of whether or not all members of a
landsmanshaft come >from the shtetl,or vicinity, upon which the
organization is based. How do we then account for so many of the married
couples being members? I suspect that, often, membership is a practical
and social convenience.
Nevertheless, the intense emotional attachment to a former world must be
present. I can only put it to our membership, to recall the conversations
from their childhood when keeping an ear open to the conversation of their
elders to bring enlightenment to this subject. My research in this area
provides only conjecture, not hard data. >>

Here is what I heard >from my aunt regarding this very thing. My paternal
grandparents, SoreSarah and Yankel Cohen, had a baby who died young, after
1912 sometime. They did not belong to any benevolent society and the story
(unproven so far) is that the baby was buried in a pauper's field. This
was an embarrassment aside >from the deep loss of a child.

My grandmother's first cousin Elsie/Elke who emigrated >from Lunna, today in
Belarus, married a man, Isadore Radin, >from nearby Skidel, also in Belarus
today. My grandmother was >from nearby Szczuczyn. By some later time they
deemed it important to belong to one of these societies. Elsie/Elke and
Isadore joined the Skidel Benevolent Society, which Jerome has generously
taken the time to post membership names at the time of the 50th Anniversary
in 1950 on the Belarus link.

My grandparents also joined because they were related and Jerome has
verified their names at the address in the Bronx on E. 180th St where I
remember visiting them as a young child. The Radins are listed along with
their daughter and husband, Joe and Frances Radin Handsman, address for
both of these couples given at a famous-in-our-family Vermont St address in
Brooklyn owned by Elsie/Elke and her sister.

Why were they all members of this one? It was available, a social group (I
have photos of my grandparents dressed up to attend the dinners), and they
all wanted to be buried together. The Handsmans are still alive, but the
Radins and the Cohens are all together in a row at Beth David Skidler area
in Elmont, marked by pink pillars.

Landsmanshaft organization Query #general

Ron Goldman
 

My grandmother was, for many years the President of the Proskurov Ladies
Society, division of the Proskurov Zion Society. Upon her death the PZS
placed a special bronze plaque on her gravestone in honor of her many
years of totally dedicated service to the organization and for her
untiring work in raising funds for Proskurovites who suffered the Pogroms
and the Nazi occupation.

Most of the collateral family members were also members, and officers of
PZS and also of the offshoot "New Nook" society. Why this offshoot was
ever formed is a question I've never been able to answer. It certainly has
nothing to do with any 'shtetl' by that name. A rift between the PZS
members, perhaps?

Re: instructions and status of orders from PSA #general

Mark Halpern <willie46@...>
 

As Marty points out, the regional branches of the Polish State
Archives have had problems accepting bank drafts >from JRI-Poland
researchers. These branches have absorbed very high fees from
their local banks to process these US$ bank drafts. In some cases
the fees have been greater than the face amount of the draft.

As was announced last month at the Jewish Genealogy Conference
in Toronto, JRI-Poland and The Polish State Archives are working
on a temporary system that will allow researchers to know the
cost of their records before they commit to an order. This system
is in the testing phase now and we expect the system to go live
within the next few days. An announcement will then be made
immediately.

The temporary system will apply to all Polish State Archive
branches **except AGAD Archives in Warsaw**
The process for ordering and paying for records >from the AGAD
Archives will not be changed at this time.

In addition to this interim solution, JRI-Poland is working with
The Polish State Archives to establish a system that will
eliminate the branch archives bank problems while making payment
easier for researchers.

A very happy and healthy New Year to all,

Can anyone update us on the issue regarding orders of vital

Is there a new procedure to order vital records? Should we use

1901 Census - New software to help users #unitedkingdom

Jgsgbccc@...
 

There is a fabulous new utility for 1901 Census users called:
Get 1901 Census Data.

It allows you to download the results of one or multiple person searches (or
Advanced Person Searches) and:

(a) determine the piece number and folio for each individual - if you want
to use it as a name index prior to viewing a microfilm (and save image
download charges). It uses an algorithm that works most of the time. [Note:a
name index for the 1901 census is NOT available at the PRO so this can be a
useful pre visit research tool].

(b) Allows you to save the results data to a text file.

(c) Sorts all the results on any of the fields.

(d) easily store the results electronically

and most useful....
(d) Separates the data into families (or, more specifically, groups of
individuals with consecutive or near consecutive person IDs).

For example, for my CHAPKOFSKY [and similiar spellings of surname] families,
I did a person search using surname CH*PKOFSK* and loaded the results into
Get 1901 Census Data.

It then sorted all the individuals into families so I could easily see which
individuals belonged to which families (without paying a penny!!!)

It does involve downloading a small software routine.
Details, and links to the download page, can be found at

loss of Morse site #general

Haviva Langenauer <havival@...>
 

Dear Genners,

Are you among those whose genealogy searches have been set back or crippled
by the loss of the One Step Search Forms for Ellis Island designed by Dr.
Stephen Morse? This is a loss deeply felt by those of us who are serious
genealogists, and who have benefitted enormously through the use of those
great search forms.

I join a long line of many many genners who are deeply indebted to Dr.
Morse for the help he has provided to us. I can only hope that shutting
down the site will be a temporary measure, and that the use of this
invaluable research tool will be restored to the historians and
genealogists who have been making use of it for successful access to
these data.

Most of us who have relatives who have come through Ellis Island, know
that the history of their immigration has to do with a search for freedom
in coming to the shores of America. One can only hope that the message of
freedom and the ideals of America will continue to permeate our thoughts
and deeds. We would hope that we can continue to use every available
resource to allow us to learn more about the great chapters in the history
of immigration to our beloved country.

Dear Genners,

Are you among those whose genealogy searches have been set back or crippled
by the loss of the One Step Search Forms for Ellis Island designed by Dr.
Stephen Morse? This is a loss deeply felt by those of us who are serious
genealogists, and who have benefitted enormously through the use of those
great search forms.

I join a long line of many many genners who are deeply indebted to Dr.
Morse for the help he has provided to us. I can only hope that shutting
down the site will be a temporary measure, and that the use of this
invaluable research tool will be restored to the historians and
genealogists who have been making use of it for successful access to
these data.

Our sincere condolences to Les' family and to his friend Florence Marmor

Re: How to research a name change? #general

Samuel A. Arutt <sarutt1@...>
 

If the name change was done utilizing legal process there will be court
record somewhere. More information would be required if the name change
occured without legal process; i.e. search of school records, business
records, title to real property, location ,
union records, social security records etc. Samuel Arutt, saarutt1@cox.net

Can anyone tell me how to research a name
change, which occurred after the immigration
process was complete and when the person was
already in the US?

It is not known whether the naturalization
took place before or after the change of name.
