SILVERMAN/SILBERMAN/ZILBERMAN #general

JoanSGross@...
 

I am researching the SILVERMAN family who came >from Lithuania.
One branch emmigrated to Eretz Israel in the mid-to-early 1800's.
Others emmigrated to the USA via Liverpoole and New York and then
moved on to Philadelphia, PA. ca 1875 or earlier.

The 1890 Philadelphia (Penna.) Directory lists three Silvermans at 603
Clymer Street:

Woolf Silverman
Isaac Silverman
Morris Silverman

I am not sure if this is a father and two sons or 3 brothers or any other
combination. Does anyone researching a Silverman family have any
information on these men?

After WWII every "Bundesland" in Germany had a Kultusministerium and a
Kultusminister, they are also responsible for the education in the
different states and other cultural affairs. The word "Kultus" is therefore
now not defined to religious matters alone. Might have been in the 1930s?

To Carol Skydell,

As far as I know, the town of Eishyshok was in Lithuania and not in Poland
before WWII .

Re: Ciechanow web page addition #ciechanow #poland

Harriet Brown <hnbrown@...>
 

Hello Stan and everyone else,

Stan's message has prompted me to go back and look through some items that
I bought >from Tomy Wisniewski a while back. Several of them may be of
interest to us.

One is a print of a photo of the interior of the Nowe Miasto synagogue, on
glossy paper, about 5" by 7". Nowe Miasto was very close to Ciechanow, and
many Ciechanowians (?), including some of my family members, spent part of
the war in the Nowe Miasto ghetto. I also have a line drawing reproduction,
from a book, of the outside of the Nowe Miasto synagogue, which was built I
believe in 1779. It was one of the wooden synagogues in this part of Poland.

I also have two maps. One map is >from 1886, >from the Russian era (so
everything is labeled in Russian), which shows Ciechanow and the
surrounding area. This map shows some of the streets and the Jewish
cemetery, I've been told; I can't read it myself. The second map is German,
from about 1914, and is of Ciechanow and the surroundings.
I would be willing to scan any of these items in so that they could be
formatted for our web site.

Finally, I don't quite understand what needs to be done on the 1923
business directory. I am glad to work on it, but I work on a Mac, and have
had trouble in the past with the special characters.

Re: French Telephone look-ups #general

Rosanne D. Leeson <leeson1@...>
 

In addition to the post of Anne Lifshitz-Krams for rhe French telephone
directory, there is an additional web site for locating people in
France. It is the only one that I have found that permits entry of a
surname, without requiring a place of residence. In this way, if you do
not exactly where a person or family is now living you can simply enter
the surname, and it will search all over France.

It is Infobel.com and the URL is: http://www2.eu-info.com/France

However, as was pointed out, about 10% of French residents prefer to
have unlisted numbers (Liste Rouge), even as here in the U.S.

Evidence of death for SS-5 form #general

jeremy berger <jberger@...>
 

Hi,
When requesting a copy of the SS-5 application, I read that you need to
provide evidence of death.
Can I do this by including a printout of an SSDI index website search
showing a person's name, Social Security number and date of death?
Or do I have to have include a copy of a death certificate?

Ternovka #ukraine

Joe Murray <cq015@...>
 

I am searching for any material/information about Ternovka in Podelyia
Gubernia and in particular any items about my paternal roots.
The family name, MORAY, or any phonetically similar names was
westernized by some immigration official to MURRAY. In Hebrew/Jewish
spelling the name is
mem vov raish yood yood.
Any help will be greatly appreciated as I am stuck at my grandfather's
generation and have no idea on how to go further.
I believe that in Kentucky there are kin-folk, also named MURRAY, who
are distant cousins.
