Re: Cypress Hills Cemetery, Brooklyn or Long Island???? #general

Cypress Hills Cemetary is on the Brooklyn/Queens border, both part of NYC.
However, tis area had been referred to as Long Island since,
geographically, Brooklyn and Queens are on Long Island.
Today, Nassau and Suffolk counties are what people are referring to when
they say "Long Island".
Good luck - let me know if you need more information

What or where is Thed. #general

bevphil <bevphil@...>
 

On a Hungarian birth certificate, under the father's name,
Nyiregyhaza is written.
Under the mother's name, the word Thed is written.
Under the name of the witness, (surname same as mother's maiden
name) I also find the word Thed.

Is Thed a location or does it have another significance. I have
tried to look up Thed, but have had no success at all.

I have posted to viewmate what have been described to me as the discharge
papers of my greatgrandfather, Lazer (Max) Fruman. I know that the xerox
has portions of tape obscuring portions of the document, but any
information or details you could provide would be appreciated. In keeping
with an excellent "tradition" I plan on donating to Jewishgen for this
excellent addition of Viewmate. Thanks.

Re: Grodno 1912 Voters' List #general

Eileen,

The ID number only allows for locating the original entry in the voters
list. However, the original entry does not have much additional
information. Quoting >from the INFO file for the Grodno 1912 Voters' List...

"This database contains six fields:

Surname - The voter's surname
Voter - The voter's given name(s)
Father - The voter's patronymic, i.e. his father's given name(s)
District - The district where the voter lived. One of the nine uezds of
Grodno Gubernia: Bialystok, Bielsk, Brest, Grodno, Kobrin, Pruzhany, Slonim,
Sokolka or Volkovysk
Town - The town where the voter lived. Only listed in a few of the lists
Reference number - Used to locate the original entry

The voter lists are not an index to a larger set of data. What you see here
is all that there is in the original lists. The only additional data for
each voter is the indication of how he qualified to vote. That information
was not transferred to the transliterated database because of its lack of
usefulness. "

Dear Genners,

I read the recent post by someone who received a Numident instead of a copy
of the original social security application, and that the SSA is going to
be implementing this permanently. Does anyone have information about when
this will take place? This is upsetting news!

Re: OUDTSHOORN - MORE INFORMATION #southafrica

Robyn Lichter <robyn_lichter@...>
 

Dear Eli,
I have been following your messages with interest but couln't really add
much about your queries. My mother's family, the Morris family, were in
Oudtshoorn. Mark Morris was my great grandfather. He was involved in the
Queen Street Shule and also the establishment of the Jewish Day School which
was the first Jewish Day School in SA, I think, and moreover a government
school! He owned a few hotels in the area, including the Criterion, and was
considered one of the Ostrich Barons. This hotel still exists and is now
called "The Baron"!
Apparently there are copies of the Oudtshoorn Koerant in the Cape Town
Library which describe life etc. I, unfortunately don't have access to this
but would dearly love to read them.
If you're interested in more info I'll happily forward it.
Look forward to seeing what else comes up

Regards

Robyn

The address is:

I can't vouch for whether the street name might have

read "Konstantinovskaya," not "Konstantinouskaya."
You are, however, missing the actual address number
(building, and maybe also which apartment block
within the building complex and/or apartment number,
since single-family homes are pretty rare!) on
Konstantinovskaya Street.

You might try your luck with one of the Internet
directory assistance services, although you're less
likely to strike paydirt outside the major cities.
Also keep in mind that it used to take soooo long to
get new phone service (frequently years) in Soviet

Good luck!

Where is Moliff, Russia? Attempts to use JewishGen's ShtetlSeeker have
