Steve Morse's one-step to EIDB form improved upon again #general

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

Steve Morse's one-step EIDB form has been improved (again)

A couple of days ago I announced that Steve's blue (Jewish Passenger)
one-step form can re-sort the text version of the manifest so that
adjacent lines are together (the Ellis Island site presents the lines
all scrambled). Well I just noticed that Steve now provides that same
feature with his white (all passenger) search form. Furthermore, the
display of the results >from his white form has been changed so that it
now looks just like the results >from his blue form, making it much
easier to work with. That means you can get >from those results to the
manifest in just "one step" -- no need to first fetch the passenger
record on the way to seeing the manifest.

Steve tells me that he can't take any of the credit for this. All the
credit goes to Yves Goulnik in Switzerland who has performed two major
miracles in the seven days that he has been working with Steve.

To see the new format, go to Steve's white search form at

http://home.pacbell.net/spmorse/ellis/ellis.html


and start your search by clicking on the button that reads "search (new
format)". If you liked the old format better, Steve still has a button
to generate that as well.

Again, please if you have any questions or comments, please direct them
to Steve Morse. You can find his e-mail address on his websites.

Good hunting!

French research (Forbach) #general

Leah Aharoni
 

Hi,

I have a few questions regarding research in France.

My objective is to determine the birth town of a relative that was born in
Poland and moved to France sometime after WWII. All I have are the name,
birth and death dates and the name of the town where he lived (Forbach).

If by some lucky chance I can find information about his parent that would
be a bonus.

1. What kind of documentation issued in France would record a person's place
of birth and/or parents' names?

2. Is any of this documentation available via the Internet?

3. Is there an institution of obituaries in France? How would one go around
looking for a (Jewish) newspaper >from Forbach, France?

Finally just in case, I am including the information I have. The relative I
am researching is Leon NIDERMAN born 10/09/1904, died 23/12/1994, married to
Esther NAJIEBORN, lived in Forbach.

Thanks,

Leah Aharoni

Benjamin MORRIS and Evelyn HOROWITZ #general

David Harris <dharris1@...>
 

My cousin, Evelyn HOROWITZ married Benjamin MORRIS about 1950. Ben was an
optometrist in Chattanooga, TN and the family had one son and one daughter
(names unknown). In about 1960, they emigrated to Israel, but returned to
the U.S. sometime later. Evelyn HOROWITZ MORRIS died in suburban Atlanta,
GA in December 1997, sometime after the death of her husband.

I'm seeking information about their son and daughter, specifically given
names and/or addresses.
Please reply privately.
Thank you,

Benjamin RUBIN and Vera KUNIN #general

David Harris <dharris1@...>
 

I have a family connection to Benjamin RUBIN born ~1890 in Husi, Romania.
He arrived New York in 1908 and moved to Chicago around 1915 with his
father Alter and other members of the RUBIN family. In the1920 census,
Chicago has a listing for a Benjamin living with his wife Vera and daughter
Evelyn, born in 1919.

Using other records, it's possible that his wife's maiden name was Vera
KUNIN and she died in California in 1985. I've tried the FTJP and there is
no RUBIN-KUNIN listing. Does anyone have information regarding this
Benjamin RUBIN and or Vera KUNIN?
Please reply privately.
Thanks.

When using the soundex-Daitch-Mokotoff to look for the name TREPMAN on the

Re Assistance with Ellis Island Database pls #general

Shelly Klink <winding924@...>
 

Marcia,
When looking for names of relatives I have found using
nicknames, and yiddish/ Hebrew names seem to help. I
found my grandmother whose names was Beckie in
English, Baila in Hebrew/Yiddish but on the manifest
was Babe which was a nickname. This might help as it
did in my case. Good luck in your quest.

Re: Mid-19th Century Naturalizations, Buffalo, NY #general

Sally Bruckheimer
 

All Erie County, NY naturalizations before 1906 have
been collected at Erie County Hall. There was an
index which was made in the 30's by WPA, I think. The
index was filmed by the Mormons, so most can search
locally at a FHL. The books of actual petitions are
at Old Erie County Hall, 25 Delaware Ave., Buffalo,
NY. However, since they are open to the public, I
think some of the volumes may have gone missing.

Please be aware that early petitions and certificates
do not contain much information. You may get a
petition which states that your ancestor 'gives up his
allegiance to the King of ____' and nothing more.
However you get his signature and a couple witnesses,
and you may get something more-an arrival date (which
might or might not be correct).
