someone inform me regarding which name is correct?
You've probably received a ton of answers by now, since I'm a little late
in reading my email. I had a similar proplem with a place spelled either
Gorodishche or Horodishche. I finally concluded that a Cyrillic equivalent to "G" is pronounced as "H".

If you receive any more scientific explanation, please forward a copy to me.

Re: Samgorodok #ukraine

NFatouros@...
 

In his messages of September 28,2000 and of November 5,2000, Len Chernos
asked about "Samgorodok." In the earlier of the two he wrote that his
research had found three Samgorodoks.

My 1962 Columbia-Lippincott Gazetteer has an entry for only one Samgorodok.
It says only of the town that in 1926 it had a population of 4,221, is (or
was?) in the North Vinnitsa oblast,is 25 miles northeast of Vinnitsa, and
is noted for metalworks and kaolin.


Without more hints >from his family history, I don't know how Mr. Chernos
can determine whether the C-L entry is the right Samgorodok.

Ellen in Casselberry, FL mentioned that she found out >from Miriam
Weiner's book that only 2-3 Jewish families were living in Bielcza at the
time of the Shoah. Can someone answer the following:
1) What is Miriam Weiner's book and how can it be found?
2) I would like to obtain similar information for the town of Ostashin,
Belarus. Would Miriam Weiner's book cover Belarus?
Thanks to all for your help.

Re: Starting out #ukraine

Greetings >from England


Having just embarked on researching my ancestory I have been fascinated by
the messages sent via the Ukraine SIG. Being a 'mischling'I can relate
very much to Paula Gowans in Australia and the difficulties posed by having
Jewish and non-Jewish parentage. The matter has also been made more
difficult by a 'mini diaspora' during WW11 when many people were evacuated
to country areas to avoid the bombs falling on London. Anyhow, my
Grandmother nee Sarah SCHWARTZ came >from Sigivka (now Dzgivka) near Yampol
on the Dneister river. My grandfather Philip(aka Pina?)CANTOR the family
legend has it was >from Kiev, that's all I know. Date of arrival in England
unknown.

If anybody has information about Sigivka or can offer advice, it would be
much appreciated.

Good luck in your quests

Dear Genners-
I am seeking help in locating Myaskofka, Russia. I managed to obtain
the Petition for Naturalization belonging to my grandfather, Abraham
David Goldenberg. He arrived in NY 10/13/03, on the Vaderland. He
listed Myaskofka as his place of birth.
Any help would be appreciated.

Social Security Death Index #general

Roberta Berman <danber@...>
 

I sent away for 4 SS-5's in July. Within a month, I received 3 of
them. The last one has not arrived as yet and I think my request must
have gotten lost somewhere. I mailed the 4 requests in 4 separate
envelopes with 4 separate letters and 4 separate checks to: SSA, Office
of Central Records Operations, Attention: FOIA Workgroup, PO Box 17772,
300 N. Greene St., Baltimore, MD 21290.

I am having difficulty locating a telephone number so I can find out
where the missing SS-5 is. I called the 800 information number, but
they were unable to find a phone number for that office.

Does anyone have the phone number?

TIA,

KAIN family (Galati, Romania) #general

Dan & Lee <danlee@...>
 

I am searching for my mothers "biological" birth family (last name Kain or
Kane). She was born in Galati, Romania in 1934 - and was the youngest of
about 9 or 10 siblings. She was adopted soon after birth. She was known as
Mutzi Cohn in Galati. Later, she moved to Israel - where she became
"Lichtenberg" (later Lior). I need help finding her family. Does anyone
know if there would be a record of her birth/adoption somewhere? She has
nothing - no papers and no one to help her (her mother recently died and
she has no other family).

Thanks

I am specifically interested in Lev (Lew?) WEIDEN (WAJDEN?), born in
Tarnov in 1903, and in his father ISAK (any spelling) WEIDEN or WAJDEN,
possibly born in Tarnow around 1870-1880.

Please reply privately.

Re: INS notations on Ships Passenger List #general

Doug Cohen <DMCohen@...>
 

This is undoubtedly a lookup performed on August 7, 1940 (8-7-40) when the
INS was asked to document to a court that the individual had immigrated on
a certain date and ship, and the INS looked up the manifest entry, and
issued Immigration Certificate No. 2-769948.

The individual appears to have applied for citizenship, and you can get a
copy of his/her citizenship papers >from NARA if you write to them as
described in the JewishGen FAQ.

I think I have read about this subject in the discussion group at an
earlier time. I have searched the site and can not seem to find the
information I am looking for.
The notations entered on the ships passenger pages under the occupation
column are related to obtaining naturalization papers. What do the
numbers mean ?
for example 2-769948-8-7-40
and 2-915214
If someone has a good key to search for the past discussion that would be
helpful.
