to attend a wedding. Can you surmise time & place >from the clothing styles?

My file is up on the ViewMate site

I'd appreciate your input!

Finkelstein's House in Szumsk -- Viewmate #general

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.

Man from Makow Mazowiecki -- Viewmate #general

Paul Silverstone
 

Now on ViewMate, No. VM030, is a picture of a man with forked
beard Makow, Lomza Gubernia, now known as Makow Mazowiecki.
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
(surname unkown) possibly Yitkovich. If anyone recognizes him
I would like very much to hear >from you!

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,
Kim Sheintal


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.

INS notations on Ships Passenger List #general

barrychernick@...
 

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.

Jewish Communal Register #general

marshall shapiro <mkshapiro@...>
 

Greetings-
I was able to locate, and inter-library loan through my
local public library, a copy of the Jewish Communal register
1917-1918. I found it to be a great and wonderful source of info.
I do have a few questions for the group-
1) Was there another register published later? 1920? 1921?

2) I didn't see listing for barber's unions. My grandfather,
Jacob Shapiro, was a secretary in the union.
Is there another source for that information?

3) My grandfather, Julius Shapiro, was a member of the butcher's
union and wanted to know if there was another source for that
too.

Maybe I was to overwhelmed by the info to see any of those
listings. I looked in the index and didn't find their names.

Thanks for the help.
