Clarification of Social Security Death Index Question #general

Joel Ives <jives@...>
 

Often the Funeral Parlor will send the Social Security Administration a
"Certificate of Death." It's not something everyone remembers in a time
of grief. The amount the family receives is about $255. It appears that
the issuing this $255 check enters the person's name in the SSDI. The
money goes to the children or spouse. It's not a long term benefit to
support the survivors but "appears" to be a one time benefit to help pay
for the funeral. It would seem that if this benefit is not applied for
then, the person
may not appear on the SSDI.

Polish translation in exchange for JEWISHGENerosity #general

MsRachelR <msrachelr@...>
 

I received what I believe to be a copy of the record of my g-grandparents
marriage in Warsaw in 1893. As those who have travelled this path before
are aware, this is the long form, and it's all handwritten. I tried to see
if I could use Shea's Translation Guide as a help - but I couldn't even
figure out one word. The handwriting is difficult to decipher.

I am only able to provide a copy via snailmail to anyone who might
volunteer to translate this for me. I would be eternally grateful, and
would like to contribute to * JewishGen-erosity * in exchange for your efforts.

* Please reply privately .

(PS ... I checked the Auction House first to see if I could bid on someone's
offer to do this - but unfortunatly no luck there)

Thanks !!

Bialystok #general

SY PEARLMAN <pearlman@...>
 

I am looking for information about Bialystok >from 1900 to 1915. Where were
the Jewish neigborhoods in the town? Where did Jewish children go to
elementary and secondary schools? What were the names of those schools?
Were they Jewish or secular? Do records of children still exist for the
schools in Bialystok? Is there a list of people buried in Jewish cemeteries
in Bialystok between 1890 and 1915? Are there any good books in English
describing life in Bialystok during that prewar period?

BLOOMGOLD - Other spelling? #galicia

KilgoreJ@...
 

Hello.

My great-grandmother's maiden name was BLOOMGOLD. However, I cannot
find it anywhere. In fact, the only BLOOMGOLD's I've found in the U.S. are
my relatives (and they are all deceased). I'm wondering if there is a
Polish or German spelling of this name or if it's the English translation to
a European surname. Does anyone have any ideas about this? I would be
grateful for any suggestions.

Thanks!

Re: "Russian pass" #ukraine

Alicia Jensen <aliciajens@...>
 

Dear Stewart and Marlene and List,

I am curious about these documents that you both posted as I went to
the URL's and looked at them both. I know Stewart said the "pass" he has
was given to him by relations who had obviously kept it. But, Marlene
and any others?), where and how did you obtain yours? Does anyone know
where one would begin looking for such a document?
It seems that if a person and / or family left "Russia" and made
their way to Liverpool, England in order to set sail for the US, that
they would have to have such papers...
Any ideas on this will be gratfully received.

Re: Fenyes Book #hungary

AttilaRona@...
 

I have found Dvorzsak Janos, Magyarorszag helysegneptara, 1877 a very useful
source. It lists number of inhabitants of every small village by religion.

The Magyar Zsido Lexikon, which I have, is indeed a very good source also,
but I have discovered many mistakes.
