Sherry Kamens asked, >> Additionally, where would one look for
ships prior to 1900? Thanks Sherry Kamens, Wayne, NJ
Sjkmb4@aol.com <<

There is a book called "Adler's Directory", "A compilation of
passenger steamships sailing >from European ports and arriving in
the Eastern ports of the United States >from 1899 to 1929,
inclusive." This book was published and distributed by the
"Steamship Directory Publishers, 116 Fifth Ave., New York City".
I cannot tell you where or if you can locate this book. It is
a valuable companion to Morton Adler, and should be reprinted and
computerized. (Maybe somebody would like to pass the info to
Cimmorelli.)
I can tell you that several years ago I found a copy of Adler's
in the Free Library of Philadelphia, 19th St. & The Parkway,
(Philadelphia, PA, USA) in the Business & Industry Department.
The book was under lock and key because of its very fragile condition.
I can also tell you that although the title page says "...1899
to 1929, inclusive", there are no listings for the years 1906
through 1927.

Re: Where are the vital records? #galicia

The2thdkdr@...
 

In a previous post, I mentioned I was looking for the vital
records for Mikolayuv (coordinates 4946-2420), a shtetl near Lviv.

The moderator noted that they were probably in the Polish
National Archives in Warsaw and in the Lviv Archives.

Does anyone know if LDS would have microfilmed these records?
These records would all be dated before 1900, so personal privacy
factors are not applicable here.

Wayne Roth, Brooklyn, New York The2thdkdr@aol.com

MODERATOR NOTE: There are very few LDS microfilms available for
Jewish records in towns in Galicia. There are some microfilms at LDS
Family History Libraries for Jewish Galician records, mostly in the
provinces of Krakow and Rzeszow in Western Galicia (now Poland). One
exception is the film for Lwow (now Ukraine). As far as we know,
these films are for the following towns:

Biecz
Brzesko
Krakow (already included in JRI-Poland database on
Lezajsk
Lemberg (Lwow)
Pruchnik
Tarnow
Wadowice
Wisnicz

Refer to Suzan Wynne's book, Finding Your Jewish Roots in Galicia: A
Resource Guide, published by Avotaynu, Inc. If you know of any other
LDS films for Jewish records in Galicia, please inform this forum.

Yad Vashem name project #general

Jonina Duker <jonina.duker@...>
 

Although his name escapes me, the project leader of the Yad Vashem effort
spoke about 2 months ago to the JGS of Greater Washington (DC area).
Can't speak for JewishGen, of course, but it did seem that IAJGS and others
in the Jewish genealogy world had been in touch and everyone was very well
aware of the genealogical significance. Some of the lists have duplicate
information in that the same person may well have been on more than one
list for various reasons. The lists varied in how many names were on it
but in general my recollection is that the list sizes were small. Of
course, the "readability" varied as well which is yet another reason why
the project will take to whenever.

Russian Brotherhood - St. Paul, MN #general

SLSchudson <slschudson@...>
 

I am seeking info on the Congregation of the Russian Brotherhood in St. Paul,
Minnesota, USA, for the years 1914-1925. My grandfather, Philip LEIBOVITZ
(LEIBOVICH) and grandmother Jennie SWEDELSKY LEIBOVITZ were married by M.
Kooperman (presumably a rabbi) of the Russian Brotherhood on 1/2/1914 in St.
Paul. Philip died in 1924 and was buried by the Russian Brotherhood.

Does anyone know if this congregation still exists or who would have the
records?

Thanks,

The Toscher Rebbe in Montreal is supposedly also related to the Fisch (from
Nagykallo) family. If anyone has more information, I would be happy to
receive it.

* Santa Ana? (was re: LOEWY ancestral home?) #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Dear John and all

There is a town in Slovakia called Liptovsky Anna which in the A-H empire
times was called Szentanna (Saint Anna). This village is 11 km (~7 mi.)
northwest of Liptovsky Mikulas. This region (Liptov county) may have
belonged to Carpathia, but I am not sure.

It also occurred to me that "Sa'nta" (with an acute accent on the first
'a') means "lame" or "cripple" in Hungarian, so maybe after all there was a
town called "Sa'nta Anna" (lame Anna?). I couldn't find it in any of mine
gazetteers.

regards
Tom

Which raises a question: I know that Friedman is an awfully
common name. It was a popular choice when it came time to choose
surnames, so two Friedmans need not be related at all. Still, the
two towns were quite close. Could those of you who are more
knowledgeable about surnames in this part of western Hungary comment?

By the way, I'm an economist too. Not of Mr. Friedman's ideological
leanings, but it would nonetheless be a kick to find a relation.
