I recently received a letter >from Archiwum Glowne Akt
Dawnych in Warsaw in response to an inquiry I sent them
(in English) regarding records for my gf's birthplace:
Zalosce.

The response is in Polish and I got a partial translation
from the co-worker of a neighbor.
They tell me that they have b,m,d records for different
periods and note in parentheses "sygn" followed by a number
1501 - 1506. (Each period a different number.) Are these
file numbers or what??

They tell me that for the nominal sum of UD$30, they will
give me copies of records providing that I can came within
five years of the birthdate of the person in question.

Can someone tell me:
What records can I get for my $30?
What info is on these b,m,d records? (I don't need a birth
record for my gf or his siblings if it has nothing new.
On the other hand if it has ages and birthplaces for his
parents, that would add something.)
What happens to my $30 if they don't find anything?
Would my best bet be to go back five years >from the eldest child
ask for a marriage record? What might that contain if I get it?

Thanx in advance. (I know I should have looked at the site for
Polish form letters, but I'd probably still have the same
questions.)

American Soldiers in Siberia #general

Arlene Weiss <Balbec@...>
 

My father served in the obscure American Expeditionary Forces in Siberia in
1918 through 1920. The troops arrived Vladivostock at the close of World
War One and were stranded there with no clear mission. I have not been
able to locate my father's service records. Can anyone help?

GOLDSTEIN #general

IsraelP <p2o5rock@...>
 

When my wife's great-grandmother Hannah Dynah LINDENBERG
came to the US >from Poland in 1921 in her late forties,
she listed on the passenger list under "nearest relative
or friend in country whence alien comes" "Sister Elka
GOLDSZTEJN, KrasnoSilce."

None of the descendents of either Hannah Dynah or her
sister knows of any such other sister, and that this
must be a friend rather than a sister.

However, we have a posed Polish photo of a couple and
seven children which my wife's uncle says is a very good
friend of his mother. The uncle says that part of this
family passed thru the London Transit Shelter in about
1925-6 on the way to the US and he went with his mother
to visit them there. He says these are some of the people
in the photo.

The Shelter has not been able to help me on this.

I find it odd that such a good friend should leave no trace
in the memory of anyone in either family (the known sisters
had lots of children and both lived quite along time after-
wards, themselves). Let alone if it were a third sister.

Any ideas how to follow this up on the US end?? (No, we
don't know the husband's name or children's names.)

Origin Of Surname "SEMI-ELIAS" #general

Steven Fischbach <fischri@...>
 

My grandmother left records indicating her paternal grandmother's maiden
name was "Semi-Elias." That branch of her family came >from West Prussia.
I suppose that her grandmother, Henriette, was born around 1825. Could the
"Semi" mean "half" as in half-Elias? Was this a common practice? Does it
follow >from the practice (pre-surname) of naming children "X" son or
daughter of "Y"? Could it mean that one of her ancestors had adopted the
surmane "Elias"? Any answers would be appreciated.

Change of names 1938 #general

malkajef@...
 

An email correspondant asked me for the following information. I am not
certain of the correct answer. Could someone help me help her? The
question is:

On august 17, 1938 a law concerning the change in family names was passed
in Nazi Germany in which any Jewish person who didn't bear a first name
other than those classified as "jewish" under the ministry of the
interior's guidlines was forced to adopt an additional "jewish" name.
There was one for females and a differant one for males. What were those
imposed names?
