Need search of Sioux Falls, SD Directory #general

Crumper10 <crumper10@...>
 

Anyone who may have access to a Sioux Falls, South Dakota telephone
directory >from 1928-1929, I am trying to find out if there is a listing
for a Max Schwartz or Max Krichevsky and what his address was at that
time. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Burials in Cuyahoga County #general

bdavis@...
 

from Social Security application records I have found that two of my
husband's distant cousins (who died in May 1972 and December 1991),
both had their last place of residence listed as Cuyahoga, Cleveland,
Ohio. Does this mean that they would be buried in one of the 5 Jewish
cemeteries in Cuyahoga County which I found listed in the JewishGen
burials CD-ROM?

I would be very grateful if anyone could offer any advice on the
most efficient way to discover (a) whether this couple are indeed
buried in one of these cemeteries and (b) any gravestone inscriptions
which may exist.

My gm's Canadian Naturalization Record and her Canadian Passport, both

Stefanesti, Romania located parallel with Dorohoi and on the
Romania/Moldava border, but the JGFF says that there was no
appreciable Jewish population in that town and won't accept my entry
of the name. My father was born in Dorohoi.

Can anyone suggest an alternative?


I think you are right and JGFF is wrong. In fact, there is a
fascinating monograph about Jewish life in Stefanesti called
"Stefanesti: Portrait of a Romanian Shtetl" by Ghitta STERNBERG,
published by Pergamon Press in 1984.

My grandfather's naturalization papers also say he entered the US on the
Grand Truck Railroad. His route was Montreal to Buffalo. I then looked
at the Soundex Index to Canadian Border Entries through St. Albans,
Vermont District, 1895-1924 (M1461). Even though it says St. Albans,
Vermont, the index covered many border crossing points.

I found his index card, which led me to the passenger list. He sailed
from Liverpool to Quebec in August, 1903. The index card had almost as
much information as the passenger list.

These records are available at the (US) National Archives and the
Family History Centers.

Re: Orsanno, Austria.

One thing to keep in mind is that on the passenger manifest the town
could have been spelled the way it sounded. I have seen shtetl names
on these manifests spelled in all kinds of odd ways, although
surprisingly, sometimes I've seen some complex shtetl names spelled
accurately.

Try doing a ShtetlSeeker search using DM soundex. Also, keep in mind that
what was Austria back then could be Poland today, or even Ukraine.

Orsanno could also be the Yiddish variant name of the town. Many (but not
all) Yiddish names for these shtetls are indexed in Where Once We Walked.

good luck in your search,

Dear genners,
I've posted a photo taken in Russia around 1905 or so. The woman seated
at the bottom left is my grandmother Rachel BASSEIN. Do you recognize any
of the others?
If so, please respond privately.

Culver City CA lookups #general

IsraelP <zach4v6@...>
 

I would like to thank the several dozen people who offered to help me
find the Pikholz descendant in Culver City California. His phone
number was listed online, but I couldn't get a mailing address.

Paul Wolf was successful in getting a possible email address and
Friday morning I actually got a response. Special thank you for that
and to Barry Silver who also got some information that I didn't have.

Re: Bialystok-Shtetl or Not????????/ #general

Joseph Wein <rosjoe1@...>
 

I understand that Bialystok was/is quite a large area back in the
days of my ancestors. Would the shtetl have been Bialystok itself
(I presume probably not), or can anyone tell me the names of some
of the shtetls that were within the Bialystok limits or just on the
outskirts of it
Try to find a copy of Jewish Bialystok by Tomasz Wisniewski. Good luck.
