Once more:Archive for Repatriazia documents in Warszawa #galicia

Eva Floersheim <evaflor@...>
 

I am looking for the special archive in Warszawa with documents
about the repatriants returning >from the USSR and wonder where exactly
this archive is located (My original message January 25th)
Peter Jaseem kindly directed me to the Jewish Historical Institute
(Zydowski Instytut Historyczny) in Warsaw.
This is NOT the archive I am looking for. I am looking for a general
Polish archive for ALL repatriants - Jewish and Christian Poles.
Any good suggestions?

Re: photos of immigrants' ships #general

Hafcjf@...
 

Jeff Malka asks where he can obtain photos of the ships of his ancestors. I
would suggest the excellent site:

http://www.kinshipsprints.com

KinShips, The Vessels of Your Immigrant Ancestors includes hundreds of
prints (available for purchase) of ships which came to this country. They
are easily categorized alphabetically.

Jeff, there were photos of the Merion and the Columbia, but none for the
Thomas W. Gregory. For that one, I'd suggest a search at google.com

Hope this helps,

St. Michaels Hungary #general

Stephanie Weiner <laguna@...>
 

Dear Genners,

Thank you one and all, who have responded to my inquiry about the
location of St. Michael's, Hungary. I have come to realize that (a) my
command of the Hungarian language is, as I suspected, nil and (b) I need
to know more than I know at present to pinpoint the appropriate town.

I believe that Mr. Neuwirth's suggestion is the most likely: "a suburb
of Budapest called Rákos Szentmihály."

U.S. Civil War Soldier Database #general

Debbie Raff <seraff@...>
 

For those who haven't found this site, there is a great Civil War Database
at: http://jewish-history.com/frmdbSearch.asp
You have to fill in all categories to do a search. The clue to doing this
quickly is that you go to the top of each category and press the shift key
and the down arrow key at the same time. Just keep these keys down until
you get to the end of each topic area. This will allow the database to
search for every possibility at one time. For those of you with relatives,
who served in this war you can find out regiment, branch of service, rank
and state.

For fascinating Jewish-related Civil War info. >from both the Confederate
and Union viewpoint (soldiers' diaries, etc.), you can go to the homepage
for this site at: http://jewish-history.com/civilwar.htm

I only wish my relatives crossed the pond in time to be on this database.
As Phyllis Kramer always says, "Happy hunting!"

Apologies to all on this list #general

Adelle Gloger
 

Dear JewishGen Community,

I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to all on this list
for having intruded by sending messages in an attempt to make connections.
When I and others see a surname of someone posting a message or see that
they are searching for a particular name, I and others often make inquiry.
Most of the time the person receiving the message with a subject of:
"Was your family >from __________?" or "_________Family"
will reply even if there is no family connection *after* reading the
message.
I, and I'm sure others, find it very disconcerting to find that the
message has been deleted without ever having been read !

We all have very full lives whether we are young, old, older, working
hard or hardly working or even retired; but not to respond or to just
delete a message is rude and somewhat defeats the purpose of this or any
other mail list.

With deepest apologies to all. To those who are seriously searching for
their roots-------You make it all whorthwhile.

See Kozelets, where is Kozelets Poviat? #ukraine

LindaJim Morzillo <jmorzil1@...>
 

I was studying Miriam Weiner's book, "Jewish Roots in Ukraine and Moldova,"
and noted Kozelets and Kozelets Poviat both in the Chernigov area northeast
of Kiev. It is easy to find Kozelets itself in an atlas but can anyone find
Kozelets Poviat?

Volhynia Research Group ready to go! #ukraine

Dear U SIGgers-

Our newest Coordinator, Joanne Saltman <jsaltman@charter.net>, is prepared
to organize a dynamite team for Volhynia research. Thank you, Joanne, for
stepping forward in the JGen spirit, & welcome to the U SIG team!

Many of you have written to say that you are researching towns in Volhynia.
Please give Joanne all of your cooperation, & volunteer to help her with
the Volhynia Geographical Dictionary. Once we compile critical information
about these towns, it will make it easier to determine the resources
available for locating your families, & to proceed with research projects
that meet your needs. So ... will those interested in Volhynia please write to Joanne & offer their input.

A reminder about information needed for the Dictionary project:
- Town name:
- Modern current name (i.e. in Ukrainian)
- Historical name (i.e. in Russian)
- Alternate historical town name(s)
(e.g. German, Polish, Yiddish)
- Latitude/Longitude
- Political jurisdictions at various time periods,
i.e. Province/district (gubernia/uyezd/powiat...)
- 1897: Gubernia (province)
- 1897: Uyezd (district)
- Jewish population figures
- 1897

Our only orphaned gubernias are now Kherson, Kharkov & Taurida. I've been
informed that there are newspapers >from Kharkov (Kharkov Vedemosti) that
can be copied & transliterated/translated. They contain lists of names &
events of interest, but they will only be made available if there is a
group of volunteers to work on them. (That means a "chief" for Kharkov!)

Once these last positions are filled, I expect we'll see a lot of activity
from all nine provinces within the U SIG focus. Join our Coordinating team
& help lead the Ukraine SIG expansion! I look forward to working with you.
