Pittsburgh Genealogy #general

Robert Mandelbaum
 

In Arthur Kurzweil and Miriam Weiner's "Encyclopedia of Jewish Genealogy,"
they list a source in their bibliography for Pittsburgh (where many of my
ancestors originally settled) entitled, "Pittsburgh Tri-State Pinkas,
Jewish National Fund of America, Pittsburgh Council, and Tri-State Region.
1948." I believe that "Pinkas" means burial book. If I'm right, then I'm
wondering whether anyone knows just what the "Pittsburgh Tri-State Pinkas"
is, and, if it turns out to be some sort of pre-1948 listing of Jewish
burials in Pittsburgh, where I can obtain a copy. Thank you very much.

Hiring Together Prof. Researcher for Podolia/Volhynia #ukraine

Hershkovitz Arnon <arnonh@...>
 

Hello!

I'm about hiring a prefessional researcher to look for archival records
from:
1. Kamenetz-Podolsk (esp. Orinin), Podolia
2. Volochisk (I don't know where the records are), Volhynia

In order to reduce to cost of such a research (I don't know exactly how
much should it cost), I'd like to coorperate with any other researchers
interested in one of this areas.

This way, we could hire a researcher together and make the whole thing
easier for us.

Plz let me know if you're interested in this idea, I think it is for the
good of all of us.

Sincerely Yours,
Arnon Hershkovitz

family searches on digest #general

Haviva Langenauer <havival@...>
 

I am wondering about the lengthy posts that we see on the digest regarding
a hopeful search for a family. Names, places and dates are listed, but
this message lasts only one day. Have any genners been successful in
finding connections through this method? I don't remember seeing any
thank you's or success stories.
The Jewish Gen Family Finder would seem to be a more efficient way of
accomplishing this search. The family names, places and researchers are
listed for years, and would seem to be a much better way of looking for a
family. I hope that the individuals who put their stories on the digest
for a one-time appeal, also remember to use JGFF for a more permanent
listing. Of course someone who is searching could also make use of the
Digest Archives to search for a name that might have appeared in a one-
time post.
I am wondering about the success level of the persons who try to find their
families through the digest with the notice that appears only once. My own
experience has been the incredible good fortune of finding three
connections to various branches of my family through JGFF.

Ship Manifest Questions #general

Jeff T. Severson <JEFFTS@...>
 

Hi all,
I have a few questions regarding a ship manifest that I found which may
contain my great-grandfather's name. The ship manifest is entitled "Record
of Aliens Held For Special Inquiry". Is this a normal manifest for
immigrants? On name of the ship is the S.S. Oceania and next to that it
has the following "(Aus.Amer.)". What does this abberviation stand for?
Also, what do the Group and No. fields stand for? The listing I'm
interested in has the person as Group 1, No. 7. My next question has to
do with the "Cause of Detention" field. The listing reads "L.P.C.
3.11 Mann". I know that the listing for "Mann" is a person's name but
what does the rest mean? Finally, what do the fields for "Def.-Excl."
stand for?

Thank you for any information that you can provide.

seeking Schmiel Mutria (DODEL) SIEGELl #general

Barbara S Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>
 

I am working on the genealogy of the DODEL /DODELL family originally of
Toporow, PO in what is now Ukraine.

Heschel Dodel and his wife, Marjem Sura Phfeffer, of Toporow had at least
13 children.

One of those, Schmiel Mutria (that's what it sounded like) DODEL, went to
England where he took the name SIEGEL. There he married, and had at least
3 children: Annie, Harry and another girl.

After WW II, Schmiel Mutria visited his mother and 8 siblings who had
emigrated to the US.
The siblings were Bennie, Bessie/Basia, Jenny, Becky, Rosie, Hymie,
Cine/Sylvia and Samuel/Sol.

Does this sound familiar to anyone out there?
