"Phyllis Kramer's message for new researchers is excellent. I am
going to copy it as a file to resend. Great advice to pass on to those

So many new researchers...... I thought I might post a JewishGen
introduction.....hello New Researcher..... you've come to the
right place...........genealogy is very interesting, and often
exciting, but it requires a good deal of time.......so if you're
willing, follow the instructions below......that will start you
off in the right direction... it just needs some patience and a
sincere interest.

Burnside Manor--banquet hall in Bronx, NY? #general

Deborah Dworski <ddworski@...>
 

I'd be interested in any information about a New York City banquet hall, I
think located in the Bronx, called Burnside Manor. My ggf worked there for
many years as a waiter, and several of his daughters, including my gm, were
married at Burnside Manor during the 1930s and early 1940s. Does anyone
know where it was located? Would I be able to obtain a picture of the
facility anywhere (for a reasonable fee)? If you are able to shed any
light on this banquet hall where my ggf spent a great deal of his life,
please contact me privately.

Thanks for the correction of TODRES >from JODRES. Presumably, then, the
derivation is >from Theodoro (lit. God gift) to Todro to Todres.

Hello Fellow Genners,

Thanks to all who responded to my email -- I appreciate it.
It is in fact TODRES and not Jodres -- gift >from god.

Pauline SINGER HANDEL #general

Sally Hohensee <hohensees@...>
 

Asking for your suggestions in obtaining my grandmother's death and
marriage certificates, and any possible information on the family. Pauline
SINGER HANDEL was born about 1897 in Austria (Austro-Hungarian Empire).
Parents were Louis and Shirley (American names) SINGER, siblings Anna
(married SCHILL), Claire, Rose (married KRAFT), Joey, one or two other
sisters. Married Louis HANDEL, 2 children, lived in the Bronx, New York.
Died March 31, 1928, age 30, in Brooklyn, New York, buried in Mt. Hebron
Cemetery, Flushing, Queens, New York [>from cemetery records]. Cemetery
records state the "organization" as "Werenczanker Bukowin" (possibly
Verenchanka, Ukraine?). I've written to the New York City Municipal
Archives several times for a death certificate, but my requests came back
"not found." Also sent for a marriage certificate with the same unhelpful
results. Any ideas?

Re: Social Security Application Question #general

Hi, Deb,

May I correct a misapprehension in your question? Social Security is
automatically available to any legal resident of the United States who
is employed in this country. One is not required to be a U.S. citizen
to pay into the system. Therefore, citizenship information would not be
pertinent on the application. I know, because I and my whole family of
refugees have gone that route.

Kremenets, Updated Surname List, 24 Jan 2001 #ukraine

Ronald D. Doctor <rondoctor@...>
 

I'm pleased to announce that the next update of the Kremenets, Ukraine
Surname List
now is available on the Kremenets Shtetl CO-OP section of the Jewish
Resources Indexing - Poland (JRI-Poland) website. Point your browser to:

http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/kremenets_surname_list.htm

The updated list now includes 1,047 surnames >from the vital records and
Yizkor Books. The vital records entries include all birth records for 1870
and death records for 1870 through 1872.

We still NEED MORE VOLUNTEERS who are able to TRANSLATE RUSSIAN, YIDDISH,
and/or HEBREW. The more volunteers we have the sooner we can get these
records on-line. Please contact me if you have any of these language skills
and have not yet been given a translation assignment.

Those who have donated time and/or money to the project received pre-release
copies of the posted Surname List. This is one of the ways we can reward
those who help the project move forward. So, if you can help with
translations, I'd be happy to add you to the distribution list for
pre-release copies of the information we post on-line. And, if you can't do
translation work yourself, you still can join this PREMIERE group by making
a financial (and tax-deductible) contribution to the project. Contributions
will be used for copying expenses and to hire professional translators to
supplement our volunteers.

You can contribute to either the Yizkor Book part of the Project or the
JRI-Poland Vital Records part ... or BOTH. For Yizkor Book Project donations
point your browser to:

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/YizkorTrans.html.

You can make your donation electronically with a credit card, or you can
download a printable form for making your payment by mail. To be sure your
donation goes to our Kremenets project, scroll down the list and check the
box next to Kremenets, Ukraine.

Instructions for contributing to the JRI-Poland part of our project are at
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/kremenet.htm Be sure to specify that your
contribution is for the Kremenets SHTETL CO-OP.

For more information about the Kremenets Shtetl CO-OP take a look at our
Shtetlinks website at http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Kremenets/. The
site also includes historical information about Kremenets, analysis of the
vital records, and photos of Kremenets and Kremenetsers. For those of you
who have visited the website before, please note the change of address.

If you locate ancestors on the list, please let me know about it. I'm
keeping a log of "successes". And, as usual, if you have any questions,
please be sure to contact me. I'm looking forward to hearing >from you.
