If you send me the names and locations (if you have them) for the people
in Mt. Lebanon and Mt. Carmel,
I will photograph them for you.
I have a digital camera and will email them to you.

The given name "Babel" #general

Jessica Tropp <jtropp@...>
 

I recently received naturalization papers for my great aunt Beckie, and
found that her given name was listed as "Babel". I find this a surprising
name, and wonder if any Genners have insight into why a child would have
been named this, and other forms and meanings of the name. Thanks!

SILVERMAN's creamery #general

Jessica Tropp <jtropp@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I am looking for information on the Silverman branch of my family. They had
a creamery/dairy in New York City (not sure what borough) in the early
1900's that other relatives worked for when they first moved >from Boston to
New York. Does Silverman's creamery ring any bells with anyone from
childhood?

thanks!

Re: "Oozda" #general

NFatouros@...
 

In her 11-3-00 message Judy Burger asked whether anyone had heard of a
shtetl named "Oozda."

Chester G. Cohen's Shtetl Finder Gazetteer" has a entry for "Uzda," and
says it is north of Slutzk and aouthwest of Minsk. It was the birthplace
of Deborah Baron, a short story writer who moved to Palestine in 1911 and
of Yechiel Michael Finshtein who moved to the US at the beginning of WW I
and became a rabbi.

Of Uzda, my 1962 Columbia-Lippincott Gazetteer doesn't add much to the
above; it says that in 1926 it had a population of 2,498, is 333 miles
south southwest of Minsk and was noted for agricultural products.

Re: pre 1825 genealogy records for Ciechanow #ciechanow #poland

A Jendrzejewski <ajend@...>
 

A quick look at the Shea/Hoffman book in the index
for Mlawa revealed that the Ciechanow records ARE in
Mlawa, as you say, the address being:

Archiwum Panstwowe
ul. Narutowicza 3
06-500 Mlawa
Polska (Poland)

Thank you, Mr. Mallenbaum, for catching that fact!
My source does not give details of the dates of
their collection, however. Some of the email
addresses I provided last night might lead to
details about the collections there.

Yes, this area seems to be very thoroughly recorded
by the LDS, so I would anticipate almost everything
could be found there. It might take some digging
though.
AFTER, exhausting the possibilities at the LDS, it
seems many people are able to find additional useful
records at the various Archives, so I wouldn't
discount them.

Andy,
When I visited the area a few years
ago, the mid-1800 Jewish
Ciechanow records were located not in Plock but in
Mlawa. I got copies of
some there, despite the antagonism of the head
archivist. Have they been
relocated recently?
I understand that all of those records
have been photographed by
the Mormons. If they haven't, I'll add Mlawa
and/or Plock to the
genealogical research tour that I'm organizing to
Poland this summer.

I would appreciate help with identifying two towns of origin, one in

Also, there is a back of a photograph taken in Tarnopol believed to me my
great grandfather that I would assistance in translating. All three of these
can be found at:

The letter can be found at

They are in the 'To View' section as files VM014, VM015, and VM016.

I would also like some assistance in translating some Yiddish on a card,
which I expect to be made available at the same site shortly.

Thank you in advance for your help.

This is apparently an archive of a newsgroup that discusses ships. If you

There is also a website that gives descriptions of many immigrant ships but
does not list your ship. It is located at:

http://www.fortunecity.com/littleitaly/amalfi/13/ships.htm >>

Mr. Silverstein is absolutely right--- that web site of ships' description is
a goldmine of facts about individual ships. I've also recommended it to a
number of genealogists.

Kinships.com also is a web site at which you can purchase pictures of
individual ships. They don't have everyone but they could have the one
you're looking for. One caution at both the fortunecity.com and kinships.com
web sites: Some ships carry the same name as an earlier version that was
destroyed or put out of service. Thus you need to carefully check if the
version you're reading about is the one you that carried your ancestor.
Checking the year when the ship was built or when the prior version was
detroyed or crashed, etc. should do it. This concern also applies to the
Amuta book (usually cited in the fortunecity.com paragraph-size descriptions
of ships): which version of a ship is being pictured?
