can be useful when calculating ages.
As I was taught, there isn't one actual date that the Census was taken on.
However, there is a date which the census takers were supposed to use for
gathering information.
I got the following >from the census page blank forms from
www.familytreemaker.com (sorry I can't be more specific). You might check
there, and at the same time download blank forms to copy your data onto.
1920 Census: Jan. 1, 1920
1910 Census: April 15, 1910
1900 Census: First day of June, 1900

from the 1910 Census:
NAME: "The name of each person whose place of abode on April 15, 1910 was
in this family. (snip) Include every person living on April 15, 1910.
Omit children born since April 15, 1910."

EKSTEIN in Zurich, Switzerland #general

Martha Lev-Zion <martha@...>
 

I just received information that cousins, Dr. Wilhelm EKSTEIN
and his wife Martha nee BERNET moved >from Nuremberg, Germany
to Zurich, Switzerland on February 28, 1934. Their daughter
Lotte went with them. Their son Gunther also escaped to
Switzerland. The Gestapo tried to prevent his wife Ruth from
leaving, but Ruth escaped to Paris. I don't know if she ever
got to Switzerland. It was written in the Nuremberg records
that the Gestapo knew Ruth's address in Paris. Is there some
way that I could follow up on this family in Switzerland? The
Eckstein family had a famous toy factory in Nuremberg called
"Ecco". The business was "aryanized" by the Nazis.

Thank you for any help you might be able to give me!

SCHAIMBERG from Stoczek #general

skatz <skatz@...>
 

Hello,

A friend of mine asked me to look up for his grandfather. According to the
documents we found in Brazilian Archives he was born in a little town called
Stoczek. His name was Aron SCHAIMBERG son of Simon and Sara SCHAIMBERG. He
emigrated to Brazil in the late 20ies.

The problem is that looking up at the Shtetl Seeker we found many different
possibilities for Stoczek. Could anybody indicate how could we discover the
Stoczek he was from?

Also if anybody has pertinent information that might be related to the above
SCHAIMBERG it would be highly appreciated.

Many thanks,

JewishGeners,

I see a lot of information about how to find passenger lists.

I am looking for someone who came to Boston >from Cape Town, South Africa
around 1925.

Is there a way for me to quickly find only the ships which came >from Cape
Town without looking through all of the arrivals?

Thanks,

I can use some assistance >from my New York friends. I am looking for
death certificate information for Fannie HIRSCH who died on Feb. 23, 1939
in Brooklyn, N.Y. I am interested in knowing the names of Fannie's
parents and the death certificate number. I am hoping that her mother's
maiden name is AMELKIN.

The FHC does not carry death information for NY beyond 1930. I would
appreciate any help the group can provide.
