Online Searchable Death Indexes #general

joe <joe@...>
 

Hello Jewish Rooters,
I have compiled a list of USA death indexes that are searchable for free
on the Internet...

http://home.att.net/~wee-monster/deathrecords.html

Included are links to some birth, marriage and other online records.

Good luck with your searches.

Regards,
Joe Beine

Levi and Cohen #general

Roberta Sheps <roberta_l_sheps@...>
 

I'd like to thank everybody who responded to my question about whether
someone whose last name was Cohen would be likely to be called Levi. The
unanimous answer was that there is no Halakhic reason he couldn't be,
and further that it isn't especially uncommon. I'd like particularly to
thank David Ziants and Udi Cain for trawling the Jerusalem phone book
and Israel yellow pages in pursuit of a substantiated answer for me.

For the record, it now appears that my great-grandfather was indeed a
man named Levi Cohen who is named in the Winnipeg census for 1901
together with my grandfather and various great aunts and uncles. (There
were only 29 people named Cohen in Winnipeg in that year, so the chances
of getting the wrong man were pretty slim.) There's more about him that
I'd like to share with the group once I have confirmed a few more facts.

A general note for anyone with Canadian ties: it appears that
ancestry.com are gradually making the Canadian 1901 Census available
free on a city by city basis. They've put three different cities'
censuses on their site since the beginning of November.

Dear Rhoda,

Are you sure you've got your dates right? As they stand, your
grandfather was 75 when he married your grandmother. Some guy.

My 80 year old father has asked me to try and trace our family history
and hopefully any living relatives. I have very little info - only that

my Grandfather was born in Odessa approx 1845, was in Russian army,
posted to Belgium in 1915 and then came to UK in same year where he met
and married my grandmother in London approx 1919/20/21. Only thing I
could think of was to send off for his marriage certificate but where do

I go next? Would be grateful for any help.

Thanks for the help :)

I am entered in JGFF.
I am seeking both contemporaries and info on ancestors.
Contemporaries if they exsist would be nice.
I have checked the JewishGen archives.
I have checked FTJP.
I have checked the Hamburg Passenger indexes.
I have checked the Social Security Death Index.
I have read the JewishGen FAQ.

However, where might I find the US census records?
Are they available online?

Thanks again for all of the help and suggestions.
It really is appreciated.

Re: Yeshiva Students List? #lithuania

JFIBEL@...
 

Dear Ronald,

I don't have a definitive answer for your question about the availability of lists of Yeshiva students, but I can think of two possibilities.

The first is a Yizkor Book. I do not see a separate Yizkor Book for Slobodka but I can see that this community is included in the Y.B. for Braslaw. There are copies of this book in YIVO and in the NY Public Library. There may be copies elsewhere.

Also, the information about the Yeshiva is the kind of information that YIVO might have. You can direct an inquiry to them. You know that YIVO moved recently to its new address: 15 West 16th St., N.Y., NY 10011

Donn/Buchman/Kushner #lithuania

David Donn <ddonn@...>
 

I am writing >from Seaside, OR in the United States.

I will repost along with this the elements that I have uncovered to date.

I have very little information at this time. I am a second generation
Jewish-American. My father is attempting to provide what fragments he can.
However, He is suffering some memory loss >from a stroke a few years ago and
is about to turn 70 years.

So this is what I do know about my Donn/Buchman family to date.

My father is Albert Irwin Donn born 12/15/1930. His father was Meyer Israel Donn born March 10, 1898 in Kovno died July 13, 1973 in E. Hartford
Connecticut. He emigrated to the US via New York abt. 1905. Meyer married
Celia Buchman born April 10. 1905 in Gomel, Belarus. She emigrated to the
US via New York abt 1905 in the company of her father Aaron Buchman born
November 2, 1883 in Siberia (city unknown) Died September 1971 in W.
Hartford Connecticut. His wife was Anna (maiden name unkown) she died abt.
1925 in the United States.

I know very little about my Kushner roots at this time. I have been told
that my gf was born in/around Austria. His name was Morice David Kushner
and he died and was interned in Rhode Island. I don't know that names of
his parents or siblings. I do know that there were a number of prominent
"Kushner's" in the family (ie. Doctors, Lawyers etc.)

He served a executive officer for an east coast company (possibly regional
president for the Mills Novelty Co. abt. 1930's till his death abt. 1945).
I have no other information re. city of birth or place/date of emigration.
He was married to Gladys (maiden name unknown).

Any assistance is most appreciated. I am hoping to reconstruct family
history for the benefit of children and grandchildren and well as for my
father and myself.

I am on JGFF. I have searched the Hamburg site to no avail. and searches of surnmaes online have produced no result to date. I have been struggling
with much of this for a couple of years now.

I have searched the Social Security Death Index and gleaned some minimal
help. And yes I am preparing to contact the Social Security Office in an
effort to obtain a copy of my mothers original application to assertain my
maternal gm's maiden name.

I know that the Kushner's I am seeking are buried in Cranston (Jewish
Cemetery) but I don't know which one ... Haven't been there since I was much younger.

And the Donn branch of the family is buried in Hartford, CT at the Waliska
(sp) Society Cemetary. I am requesting help with that research as well.

Thanks for all the help...

Copyright permissions #lithuania

Ada Greenblatt <ada.Greenblatt@...>
 

I am in final throes of completing a very extensive JewishGen ShtetLinks
page for my ancestral shtetl of Seta/Shat, Lithuania.

This page can currently be viewed on my home page at:

<http://home.att.net/~ada.greenblatt/>

It is not yet ready to be uploaded to the JewishGen server because I am
still in the process of getting the necessary copyright permissions for the
English translations of articles on Seta/Shat that were originally
published in Yiddish or Hebrew texts (these articles will not be put on my
website unless and until I get that permission). In that regard, can
someone please tell me who to contact for the following:

A. Berl Kagan's "Jewish Cities, Towns, and Villages in Lithuania until
1918: Historical-Biographical Sketches" which was self-published by the
author in 1991 in Brooklyn, NY. Berl Kagan is deceased. Who can grant me
the permission? Hope I don't have to do an heir search. <vbg>

B. "Lite, Volume 1", which was edited by Mendel Sudarsky, U.
Katzenelenbogen, and J. Kissin. Published in NY in 1951 by the
Jewish-Lithuanian Cultural Society. The copyright ran out in 1998 (47
years after publication), unless it was renewed. The Jewish-Lithuanian
Cultural Society existed only until 1965, so I have a feeling that the
copyright for "Lite, Volume 1" was NOT renewed. Does anyone know for sure?
Would someone in Washington, DC be willing to check this out for me at the
Library of Congress in exchange for a comparable amount of genealogical
research that I can do in a New York City archive, library or cemetery?

C. "Encyclopedia Lituanica", which is in English, was published in 1970 in
Boston, MA by Juozas Kapocius, presumably another case of self-publishing.
Can someone in Boston please give me the address of whom to contact? If it
is not listed, any other suggestions?
