Map of Melnitsa area #general

DStern13@...
 

My Grandfather is now writing his story of survival. In order to see the
route he took and to give him guidance I require urgently a detailed map
(i.e. military map)of this area which is Melnitsa(Mel'nitsa-Podol'skaya)
in the Ukraine.
Would anyone know where I could get such a map?
Your help is much appreciated!!

This looks even funnier:

I managed to login using my old Jewish Chronicle Username and password,
submitted a couple of months ago.

I went to Family Ties, then Genealogy Search, and enter a surname for its
lookup. As a result of my search, I received the following:

"Thanks for your message. Read The JC for the results! "

Brilliant!

Just to follow on to Harvey's posting. I was a JC reader in the UK, and
have checked out the web site most weeks to keep in touch. It now appears
that they have re-vamped the site, and admittedly there are some new
features, but the only way you can access ( among other goodies that were
previously unrestricted, like Evelyn Roses recipes) the genealogy section
is by joining their "gold club". And how does one join this illustrious
body??? By subscribing to the actual newspaper. I'm sure we can
understand why they are doing this, but some things should be accessible
as a public service, and the family finder should be. What a shame! I
shall be contacting the JC to voice my opinion.

Nathan, Sidney, Ethel Gelfand Wexler were the children of a mother whose
maiden name was Alenik. They were >from Sharon Pennsylvania and Youngstown
Ohio. Nathan died in 2/1981 in Ca.? and Ethel married Leo Wexler and

Thank You #general

I try to remember to thank everyone personally when I reply to them, but
sometimes I have only a small amount of time and a lot of e-mail to read.

I thought, however, that I would take a moment to thank anyone that I have
not already thanked. I still don't have any real answers, but I do have
more ideas to try.

I plan to try to put a couple of other pictures on my website:
http://communities.msn.com/DixieVixensGenealogicalResearch
and possibly make some connections.

This is a new millennium and I have vowed to not let the secrets of the
past bind the children of the future as my ancestors have done.

New shtetlinks site for Stanislawow/Ivano-Frankvosk! #general

Denise Azbill <famaz@...>
 

Ivano Frankivsk (Stanislawow) ShtetLinks Site

Due to great effort on the part of Susannah Juni, a new ShtetLinks site
has been launched for the city now known as Ivano Frankivsk, formerly
Stanislawow, Stanislau, or Stanisle. You can go there directly by
clicking on:
http://www.jewishgen.org/shtetlinks/juni/stanislawow

or by going to the ShtetLinks Home Page at www.jewishgen.org/shtetlinks/
and clicking on Ukraine, and then Ivano Frankivsk. Stanislawow was a
large city of more than 100,000 residents, including a thriving Jewish
community of 25-30,000 people.

At this time, the site is still a work in progress, but there are great
maps of the area, and many wonderful photographs. We have over 100
researchers who have asked to have their surnames of interest posted on
the researcher's page. Have a look! You never know-you may have
ancestors who lived in Stanislawow or nearby environs, such as Mariampol,
Jezupol, Knihinin and the Knihinin colonie, Mykietynce, Zagwozdz,
Paniczna, Tumierz, Halicz, Pobierce, and many other shtetls.

If you have a question regarding whether or not a shtetl is in the
administrative district of Stanislawow, please contact Denise Azbill, at
Famaz@prodigy.net

Exciting news for the near future! Susannah has traveled throughout the
region, and we have a database of literally thousands of records of data,
including photographs both old new, documenting Jewish life in Stanislawow
(Ivano Frankivsk). We are currently working with a database specialist to
enable you to view all of this data, including many more Photo Highlights,
from the website. (The current release of the website contains only a small
sampling of photographs, as well as research sources, links, maps, etc.)
Please check back later in the year! (Targeted for around July, 2001...)
Some of the data was provided by other researchers, and if you have data
you'd like to contribute, please contact me later this year, as there will
eventually be a mechanism for people to donate more data to the project.

Volunteers are needed to help submit and computerize data for the SIF
website on ShtetLinks. If you can help, please send an email to Denise
Azbill famaz@prodigy.net No special skills required.

Many, many thanks are due Susannah. She has created a wonderful site, and
we invite you all to visit.

Sincerely,
Denise Azbill

Re: Changing names - how was it done? #general

Ron Goldman
 

On January 6,2001 Allan Jordan asked:

Has anyone looked into how someone changed their name at the turn of the
century in the United States? Did our ancestors wake up one morning and
say I want an American name and just start calling themselves by their new
name?
In my family, my mgf actually went to Court (Supreme Court, State of NY)
in 1918, some 20 years after having arrived in the US, and 12 years after
his Naturalization to petition legally for a surname change, which
included his wife and minor children, one of whom was my mother.

I have the papers on this, and it appears that he had a hearing on
4/15/1918 (having previously entered his petition) and that the name
change officially went into effect on 5/29/1918.
