Re: Immigration through Canada #general

Olga G. Parker <OGParker@...>
 

Message text written by Harry Dodsworth on Sept. 26:
from 1921 to 1924, Canada didn't keep large sheet manifests but kept
landing cards (Form 30A). These are a wonderful source of detail for
immigrants to Canada. Unfortunately they were not supposed to be filled
out for transmigrants to the US - so they may not be recorded at all in
Canada in those years.<

Even so, I located relatives who transmigrated to Chicago on the St. Albans
lists who arrived in late 1923 through Montreal, and who crossed by train
into the U.S. at some obscure place, I think in NY State (don't have the
record with me at the moment). On one of the cards for the wife it noted
that she was pregnant--and I later found a death certificate for that
infant. The cards told me where the couple were going, wife's father's name
and address, name of ship. As Mr. Dodsworth mentioned, these cards can be
full of useful information.

There are 2 sides to these cards--set side by side on the film, though one
will appear upside down. Be sure to check both sides of the cards.

Need Hebrew Words for Lilli #general

FC Tilden <fctilden1@...>
 

Lilli Sprintz needs the Hebrew words for "powerful"
and "pure" for her research about women, and, believe
on Genners someone said there is a language converter
for English/Hebrew words on the internet. Would you
please give that email site again? If it wasn't on
Genners, perhaps someone else can recommend an
excellent and user friendly as she (and others) will
need more information in the future.

Sincerely,
Edna McDonald

Re: Motor Vehicle registration #general

Juergen Stockburger <stockbur@...>
 

I missed the beginning of this thread, so I'm not sure how running a
license plate relates to genealogy, but anyway, here's my suggestion:
The California DMV will attempt to forward messages to individuals,
given license plate or other identifying information (e.g., name +
d.o.b.) - see http://www.dmv.ca.gov/forms/inf/inf1211b.htm . The
person contacted may choose to respond or ignore the message (sadly,
that's something we've heard about here too often). I am unaware of
similar services in other states, but you may want to investigate
them.

eugenics records #general

E. J. Richards <richards@...>
 

If these eugenics records were held at the Berlin Document Center until
1994 (when it was turned over to the Germans), then copies must exist in
the National Archives, since this was the precondition for turning over the
BDC files to the Germans then.
(One way to check would be to ask an historian of the Third Reich like
Michael Kater at the University of Toronto if he knows about these files,
since a lot of eugenics experiments were conducted through the office of
the Ancestral Heritage Foundation or Ahnenerbe.)

Avraham LEHRMAN, Uman #general

Ida & Joseph Schwarcz <idayosef@...>
 

I have just found some scribbled notes, thirty years old, >from something my
late father told me. His father, David Kitaigorodsky of Lukashifka, had a
first cousin, Avraham Lehrman, a watchmaker in Uman, who made aliya before
the Frist World War. Avraham had a brother David Lehrman whose children may
have immigrated to the Boston area. As far as I can tell >from my scribbles
their names were Yankl, Isaac, Zalman, Leah and Rachel. Avraham's mother
was Alte Kitaigorodsky, my grandfather's sister.
If any of these names sound familiar to you please respond.

Aaron Shmuel Perlman #general

Michael Kam
 

Shalom Jgenners,
I have recently found two identical photos sent to two brothers of my
great-grandfather >from Aaron Shmuel Perlman. I can email the 94KB JPG
photo to anyone who is interested.

The photo shows Aaron Shmuel Perlman (a religious man with white beard),
his wife and 4 children; a daughter and 3 sons). At the back of the
photos it was written Yidish and I assume they were sent before the war,
probably >from the Belarussian region to Southern Sweden where the two
brothers lived at that time.

The names of my great-grandfather and his two brothers are: Yechiel Moshe
Perlman, David Eliezer Perlman (b 1882) and Abraham Perlman
(b. 1884); their father was Yosef Perlman and his father was Ytzhak Iyzik
Perlman.

The family lived before the war in the Shtetl Mush (or Novaya-Mysh, not
far >from Baranovichi) and later in Novogrudok (both in Belarus). David and
Abraham moved at the beginning of 1900 to Southern Sweden and survived the
war and Yechiel Moshe who stayed at Novogrudok was murdered in 1941 when
the Nazis entered. We know that Yechiel Moshe maintained contacts with
Rabbi Shmuel (d. 1916) >from Slonim and Rabbi Abraham who was the Rabbi of
the Slonimar Yeshiva at Baranovichi before the war.

As far as I know Yosef Perlman had only three children. Thus, Aaron Shmuel
Perlman could be either his brother or a closed cousin. Therefore, the
children in the photo could be cousins of my grandfather and, if they were
able to survive the war, their children could be today at their 80s. My
guess is that the great-grandchildren of Aaron Shmuel Perlman are my third
cousins.

In my Perlman family no one knows Aaron Shmuel Perlman.

My question to you: Who is Aaron Shmuel Perlman and are there any
descendants of him?
If my guess is correct, his father was Ytzhak Iyzik Perlman and his
brother was Yosef Perlman.
I would be delighted to contact any descendants of him.

Records from NJ, USA #general

joan breslow <webjoan@...>
 

Having been through the exercise of obtaining NJ records, the process is
usually:

Begin at the very local level (town, burough, municipal, etc) court
house; then if necessary proceed to the County level,
and then Trenton.

At times they have nothing anywhere. Lots of luck,

Joan Breslow

LONSTEINS in Zambia/Zimbabwe #southafrica

Joe Lonstein <jlonst@...>
 

Thanks to numerous SA-SIG members, I was finally able to track
down LONSTEIN families >from Johannesburg and Cape Town. The
information they provided was quite valuable and expanded my
family tree, but unfortunately, both families were only distantly
related to me. I'm still looking for the African LONSTEIN family
most closely related to mine, that of my great-great-grandfather
Yudel (Julius) LONSTEIN, who left Zarasai Lithuania with his
second wife and their children for Cape Town ~1890. My great-
grandfather Sam Lonstein was the only child by Yudel and his first
wife (who died after childbirth). Sam came to NYC instead of going
to Cape Town with his father, step-mother, and half-siblings. I
haven't been able to find these half-siblings. One Lonstein >from
Cape Town told me that he has a faint memory of another Lonstein
family living in Cape Town with whom they were distantly related to.
He thought that this family left for Zambia or Zimbabwe, as long as
50 years ago. Is anyone familiar with the Jewish communities of
these countries that can give me a lead? Does anyone have
access to a telephone book >from these areas that can look up the
surname?

Thanks for any help,
