Re: Registering for US Social Security #general

MarlaJAP@...
 

I seem to recall that 1936 was one of the first years of the entire Soc
Sec system, and that registration requirements were for all working adults
at that time. Certainly, I have the Soc Sec 5 (application) form for both
of my grandfathers dated in the fall/winter of 1936. In fact, they
registered at completely different ends of the city of Boston, but within
two or three days of eachother. My paternal grandfather arrived in the US
in 1905 at the age of 18 or so, a working adult, and was naturalized in
1925. My maternal grandfather, on the other hand, arrived in 1902 as a
4 year old boy. I do not yet know the year of this grandfather's
naturalization, but I believe that it happened when he was either a young
teen or young adult.

Re: Is there a Lugin? #ukraine

NFatouros@...
 

In his message of 11-29-00, Howard Kaplan asked whether asked about a town
named "Lugin," saying that his father had come ">from near Kiev."

Especially because the "h" and the "g" are interchangeable in
transliteration of Russian words and names, I believe that Mr. Kaplan's
ancestral town is "Luhin" or "Luginy" which, according to Chester G. Cohen's
Shtetl Finder Gazetteer is northwest of Kiev and close to what he calls the
town of "Koresten." At one time during the 20th century Luhin had a
population of about 1,000.

I also found this town under the entry for "Luginy," in my 1962
Columbia-Lippincott Gazetteer which said that it is 12 miles >from Koresten,
in the Zhitomir oblast, and that it is known for papermilling.

Re: GREAT BOOK on Eastern European Jewish Life #galicia

NFatouros@...
 

I haven't read Abraham's Duker's criticism of "Life is with People," but when
I read the book itself, I thought it was absurdly unrealistic, sentimental
and romantic. I have the same opinion of certain other "wishful thinking"
depictions of Eastern European shtetl life, including a book by [an] Abraham Heschel which I think is called "The Earth is the Lord's."

I think Moldetzne is now in Belarus and is called Molodechno,unless
there is a similar place in Lithuania.

Rezitza, Rjeshiza, Rjetschiza, Rositten, Rzezyca), now in Latvia. 5630/2719

Re: Children Use Mother's Maiden Name #general

Is it possible that this might explain why my grandfather used his wife's
maiden name when he came to America? I have not found the arrival records
of either him in about 1889 or his wife & children who came later in 1892
so do not know what name they traveled under.
