New York seminar #hungary

ALEX M P MILLER <alexm6@...>
 

Hello Friends,

I am planning to attend the NY seminar, and hope to meet many of you!

Being a first time attender, I wonder if someone would "sponsor" me( and
some other would be seminar Neophytes) and help with a bit of planning:
How to achieve a productive attendance?

Some questions that come to mind:
Is it necessary to attend the full time frame?
What is the best way to pick the events?
Will there be any discussion on desired topics/who picks the
topics?
Are there special Hsig events?
Etc., etc.(I could come up with more)!


Best regards, Szervusz

Hi Marian and H-SIG All,

Maybe it could be an other and faster alternative to negotiate with
one of the slovak resident genealogist through the "Searching in
Slovakia" Web Page or some one of us living in Slovakia, to photograph
the Preshov Archives for H-Sig?

Interesting to know how many of us would be interested as you and I?

I presume that those of us interested, would also not mind to chip in
a prorated amount of the cost of such a project, provided that the
Presov Archives permit photographing them.

Problem with 1910 Census of Philadelphia, PA #general

Matthew <matthew24@...>
 

I was recently searching for several names in my library's 1910
Census Index of Pennsylvania, but I found none of them, all of whom I am
100% sure lived in Philadelphia at this time. Browsing the index, I
realized that there are no names >from Philadelphia listed. I know that
the 1910 census was only indexed for 21 states (PA inclusive), but were
these states *fully* indexed? Or is the library's microfilm incomplete
(the Carnegie of Pittsburgh)? Has anyone else experienced similar
problems with the 1910 census?

Hi Jgenners
Not a long while ago I remember that I read that in Mezritsh there were two
big fires (one by the end of last century and the other in the beggining of
this). I can't remember were I read this (I checked the Jewish Enciclopedia
and it was not there). May someone help?

Funeral Directors: A Valuable Resource #general

ddworski@...
 

Contacting the funeral director listed on a relative's death certificate
can be a short-cut to learning valuable genealogical information. I
stumbled across this research strategy in a desperate attempt to learn
something--anything about my ggf's death. I had my ggm's death
certificate which listed the funeral director. I called, presuming that
my great grandparents were buried near each other, and hoping that the
funeral home might have some record of my ggf. Indeed, the same funeral
director had handled my ggf's burial. Here is some of the terrific
information I learned >from that one, 15-minute phone call:

1) date and place of death (now I can obtain the death certificate)

2) data provided by the informant--which is then used to prepare the
death certificate
(includes date and country of birth, parents' names, last residence, name
and address of informant)

3) name and location of cemetery and exact location of gravestone
(including section, row, and plot #)

4) inscription on tombstone

5) copy of death notice appearing in local newspaper
(provides date of funeral and the all-important names of
previously-unknown relatives!)

6) multiply by six all of the above data--I learned that the same funeral
home had arranged the burials of all of my relatives residing in that
city!

The above is a wonderful example of "one-stop" shopping for genealogical
information. This one resource eliminated several phone calls and lots
of footwork. I did not have to call the cemetery for specific burial
location. I did not even have to visit the cemetery since the funeral
director provided the tombstone inscription. Also, I did not have to
scan through old newspapers in search of a death notice or obituary.
And, I saved all of these steps for six different relatives!

Cooperation of funeral home staff and thoroughness of funeral homes'
records will vary, but it is worth a phone call.
