Sarah & Meyer INGBER of Israel #general

Ann Wine <annw@...>
 

Hi all!

I am looking for a Sarah and Meyer INGBER (nee GEFEN) who had two
sons, born in the 40's approximately. I believe that the Ingber
family had a Honey business!

Sarah's father (Avram GEFEN) was >from Nowy Korzyn, Poland and in
the 50's was living in Holon.

Has anyone heard of them?
Can someone please do a whitepages search for me?

Thanks & Chag Sameach

Yes, there would be a Declaration of Intent and a Petition for
Naturalization-but not necessarily at the same court. And in these
early times, the information you will find is usually very little:
I give up my allegience to the King of _____(fill in the blank).
And a witness.

If the new citizen moved >from ( for example) Denver to Brooklyn, the
Declaration might not even be in New York State.

I humbly request your help again: Where is "Kosh"?

"Does anyone know if there is information about the Washington Cemetery in

recorded
the tombstones, etc?"

You might start with this link on the Jewish Gen site:
http://www.jewishgen.org/cemetery/northamerica/nyc.html There is contact
information there for Washington Cemetery (among many, many others).

The Washington Cemetery records are not mechanized. The staff at the cemetery
is very helpful with the paper records.

The Jewish Genealogical Society (New York) has a database of burial societies
on its web site http://www.jgsny.org.

You can search by town or by part of the society name. It will return the
cemetery and location within the cemetery of the plots owned by the society.

Re: Ukraine Projects - Breaking News! #ukraine

Dear Members,
I've been reminded about a couple of important facts which I neglected to
mention in my announcement yesterday.

First, the lists contain Czarist vital records - BMDD (births, marriages,
divorces and deaths) - of the Jewish families in the respective communities.

Secondly, since these records are recorded in both Russian and Hebrew, we
will be needing translators for both languages. The data will be entered
into an existing Excel template and uploaded on an All-Ukraine website,
This should give you a good idea about what kind of assistance will be
required for the project; ie: Hebrew & Russian translation, data entry,
proof reading ......

I will be away >from March 30th until after the middle of May, so if you
have more questions regarding this subject, please address them to Judy
Tarail, the Project Coordinator, at

JUDYJ4060@aol.com.

Good luck in your research, & a Chag Sameach to everyone!

fego, and, MIME, Problems #general

Daniel Schlyter <schlyteriajgs@...>
 

On 24 March "Naidia Woolf" <rnwoolf@earthlink.net> wrote

In trying to read Polish vital records, I sometimes encounter the
word "nego." ...... I've also seen a word that looks like "fego,"
on a birth or marriage cert., immediately preceding a woman's name.
(Might be "fegi"; hard to tell.)
I am attempting to answer >from a hotmail account, because my email
at the FHLibrary used GroupwiseTM, and that program apparently cannot
send messages without MIME and other junk that makes it incompatible
with the JewishGen Digest.

I have seen that other's have answered the first part of her question
about "starozakon-nego" When a person is unfamiliar with a language
it can be very tough in handwriting to figure out where words start
and end. As regards her second question about "fego" immediately
preceding a woman's name, I am sure the word is "jego" and refers to
"his wife." That is the wife of the man who presented himself "stawil
sie" to announce the birth of the child.

Judith Frazin's book, A Translation Guide to 19th-Century Polish-
Language Civil-Registration Documents, is very helpful in learning
to read Polish vital records. See http://www.jewishgen.org/jgsi/#library

Odd Name: Yemotis #general

Steve Orlen <sorlen@...>
 

In a 1922 Holyoke, Massachusetts obituary for my great-great
grandfather, Isaac Epstein, originally >from Slonim, there is mention
of a daughter, still living in "Russia." Her name is printed as "Mrs.
Robert Yemotis." I've since found out that the family emigrated to
Palestine, and that, at least in the 1960's, there was a son living
there.

First, has anyone ever heard of this as a Polish/Jewish name, or
something like it? It may certainly have been misspelled in the local
paper.

Second, would anyone in Israel be willing to do a phone book check for
me on the name Yemotis, or anything even vaguely similar?

Please respond privately to Steve Orlen sorlen@u.arizona.edu
