Book in Hebrew: Bat-Ami Yogev Cherzlia #general

Cheryl Hoover <crhoover@...>
 

I just received a picture of my great great grandmother >from the book
above. This book was published in Israel and written in Hebrew. The
person that sent me this picture said the title translates to They Were
Ordinary People. My question is this: does anyone know if this book is
available in either Hebrew or English? I would prefer the English
version if it is available. I know this may be a long shot as this is
suppose to be an old book, however, I am hoping. Thank you for your
time.
Sincerely,
Cheryl Hoover

What's in a name... #general

Anita Citron <anitac1@...>
 

And people think this is easy? That there is a simple name chart? HA
Things were just a lot looser then.
As Shelly said...and not just names.

My father hated his oldest brother. When he filled in my gm's application
of naturalization, he left Harry off entirely. If I hadn't had know he had
an older brother, I might have thought there were only four in the family.
This also makes you wonder what else he did? He shows my gps married
4/15/1889. Harry was born in 1889. Are the dates right? Did my grandmother
make him leave Harry off because he was born out of wedlock? Who knows?

The papers also say my gf (deceased by that point) had arrived here in
1893. The NYS Census in 1905 says he arrive in 1891.

Sometimes I feel like I'm dealing with mercury. But ain't that half the
frustrating fun?

Oh, just to restore hope. I found had gathered unto me the data on every
NADW/VORN/E/Y born in Ukraine in the world. Only 4 families, mine being
one, one in Brazil, one other (which had only 4 members, 2 already gone).
All other Nadwornys seem to be >from Poland. But I kept connecting the dots,
and waiting for those cert, and the last where there were no living
members. I kept searching and sending for certificates. AND I managed to
incontroveribly match up two of them as having the same ggf/ggm (the one in
Brazil and the 4 member one). The 2 survivors of the 4-member family
thought they were the only ones in the world because their father told them
that that is what their grandfather said. Might be what he believed but it
was not the truth.

So, if I managed to find success with my needle-in-a-haystack family, keep
heart.

My cousin informs me that her grandparents are buried in the
Zentralfriedhof in Vienna. I'm not sure I have the correct address for
the cemetery, so if anyone does have the correct one, could you please
share it with me? Also, should I have my cousin translate into German
for me, or will correspondance in English be adequate?

Thanks in advance,

1910 US Census Index for Phila. at the Carnegie Lib. of Pittsburgh #general

Matthew Meisel <mattmeisel@...>
 

To all Genners who live in Pittsburgh, PA, or who plan to do research
there:

A while back I submitted a question about the 1910 US Census Index of
Philadelphia, PA. Thanks to all who responded. I found the rolls of
microfilm at my local library, the Carnegie of Pittsburgh.
At the Carnegie, the rolls of microfilm of the index are in the first
bank of microfilms in the microfilm room. If you have trouble finding
them, ask the microfilm librarian to show you rolls 529 to 688. Some of
the genealogy librarians at the Carnegie don't know the rolls exist.
