Thank you for pointing this out. I will link the page to my Jekabpils page.
I have visited Edward Anders excellent page before but thought it was all
Liepaja and the Holocaust.

There may be some coordination between the LatviaSiG and the locater of this
record that is not obvious to me. I would hope that the data finds its way,
eventually, to the All Latvia Database, to join data already appearing
online.

I was lucky enough to have found who I believe to be my ggggf, Wulff Jossel
WALDSTEIN, with my gggf, Hirsch WALDSTEIN. Previous to this, I found my
Girsh ben Wolf WALDSTEIN on the All Lithuania Database, registered in
Siauliai (1846), with later generations registered in Saukenai (1858) and
Uzpaliai (1874). My ggf and gf generation actually lived in Kupiskis,
although the only record I have of that are marriage and death records
privately obtained via Galina Baranova >from the Vilna archives.

The lessons to be learned, of course, are never to assume you know where your
family came from, and never think you've completed the job of finding them.
This process has taken my WALDSTEIN roots back to eighteenth century Latvia.
I'm looking forward (and backward) to where it will take me next.

Paul Silverstone
 

Now on ViewMate, No. VM029, is a picture labeled "Finkelstein's
House" in Szumsk, Ukraine, formerly Volhynia Gubernia. It was
found in a 1946 dinner program by a Shumsker Society probably in
Brooklyn. Its source is unknown. Who was the Finkelstein? Any
information would be greatly welcomed.

My great-grandfather, Tevel Finkelstein, of Winnipeg, came from
Szumsk.

Now on ViewMate, No. VM030, is a picture of a man with forked

I think he is my great-grandfather but I have lost the indentification.
He may be Moshe Yankel Silverstein, or he may be Yakov Boruch

Re: Naming after the father's death #general

Robin Sherman <rsherman1@...>
 

Yes, this happened in my husband's family. Father Itzik died during the
pregnancy and the child was a boy named Itzik after him.

Robin

One situation that I can envison is that the father died during the
mother's pregnancy, and when the child was born, he was named for his
deceased father. Has anyone heard of this situation before?


How to lcate birth mother #general

Kim Sheintal
 

I am helping a friend who is looking for the birth mother of a baby. The
"baby" is now 31 years old and was adopted at birth by a Jewish family.
My friend knows the mother's first and last name (which are both very
common names) at the time the mother delivered, approximate age at the
time the mother delivered and the approximate area of New York state at
the time the mother delivered. She knows that the mother was Jewish at
the time of delivery and that the baby's grandfather came >from Poland to
the New York state area. Where can you suggest that she begin her
search? I will forward any assistance/direction or questions that you
send to me to my friend. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Re: Julius LEWIS of Belmar, New Jersey #general

Robin Sherman <rsherman1@...>
 

The county seat is Freehold, NJ. Have you tried calling the Belmar
Municipality to see if they have any records. I called 732.681.1176 press
#9 and then extension 231 and ask for Pat. She said she does have death
records for that time period. I don't Freehold has any death certificates
there, but they do have a Hall of Records.

Looking for information of Julius LEWIS of Belmar, New Jersey- probably

1910.
