Balzekaus Museum of Lithuanian Culture #lithuania

HankPropp@...
 

I couple of days ago I wrote that I used the Balzekaus Museum of Lithuanian
Culture of Chicago to translate both Lithuanian and Russian documents and that
found them very satisfactory, reasonably priced and fast turnaround times. I
have been asked for the address of the museum

The mail address:

Balzekaus Museum of Lithuanian Culture
IHG Department
6500 South Pulaski Road
Chicago, Illinois 60629
773-582-6500 Phone
773-582-5133 Fax


Ms. Karile Vaitkute is charge of the translation depatment. The cost was
$00.09/Word. You should check this, as it has been sometime since I used the
their services.

Re: SA ships: The Cape Run and the Jewishgen Archives #general

JLowenkron@...
 

The Jewishgen Archives came in very handy when my cousin and I were trying to
decipher the headings of the Civil Registration I received >from Warsaw...I
used the translation book at the FHC for most of the words, but they didnt
have a translation for Sandek...my cousin looked up a posting in the Archives,
and there it was, it means godfather...does anyone know what the word Pathe or
Tathe means, used in a similar context...I m guessing it might mean godmother
or the person who passes the baby to the godfather to pass to the Mohel...any
guesses? Jane Lowenkron Foss, NYC

Searching: EYGES, EIGES #general

Roy Ogus <ogus@...>
 

Is anyone researching the surnames EYGES or EIGES. (I am also pursuing
the entries in the JGFF for these names.)

The name as the same soudex code as OGUS, and I'm wondering if there
may be a connection between the two families.

I'd appreciate hearing >from anyone who has information on families with
these two surnames.

Thanks.

AMZALAK/AMZALLAG #general

rsolit@...
 

Dear Hoam,
The name AMZALAK, very similar to the name you are looking for AMZALLAG,
appears around 15 times int the US Dept of State Consular Post Records for
Jerusalem, Jaffa and Haifa. You can search this database at the JewishGen
we-site. Go to Databases, Israel, US Dept of State Cons. Post Records for
Jerusalem, Jaffa and Haifa.

The Amzalak given names that appear are Bension, Botisa, David, Joseph,
Oro, Samuel and Sara , with references to the cities of Jerusalem, Jaffa,
Tunis and Cairo.

I'm responding to the digest, rather than to Hoam alone, to point out that
this is a very valuable database. You may not be aware that an ancestor
had any dealings with the US State Dept, or that any relative spent any
time in Jerusalem, Jaffa or Haifa, but many, many did.

Shtetls in Bessarabia/Odessa #general

Jill Florence Lackey <lackassc@...>
 

Does anyone know of an internet site (or other resource) that can give me
a list of Jewish shtetls in the territories of Bessarabia and Odessa
between approximately 1850 and 1920? I have a map of Bessarabia, but I
don't know what village was what--which were Russian, Rumanian,
German-Russian, Jewish. Sorry, I am new at this.

Re: Good results from Warsaw Archives #general

Dear Jane

Glad to hear that you had good results with the Warsaw Archives. I also sent
for my grandparents wedding registration papers, many months ago, right after
hearing Miriam Weiner & the director >from the archives give a talk here in New
York. About a month later a letter completely in Polish was sent back to me
instead of being redirected to a regional archives giving me this address.
Annother letter was sent by to the new place & I'm still waiting. Also received
a letter today that I had requested for a social security application 5 months
ago> Whats worse it wasn't even the correct person. Soglad to read sucessful
things.

A female name #general

Harold Pollins <pollins@...>
 

Recently I asked if anyone had heard of the forename Deecia (variously
spelled). Many people replied, some privately. Many thanks to all. I
haven't been able to resolve the matter but am still looking.

I have also come across a distant member of my mother's family, who settled
in the USA. Her name was Rosa but also was known as Rosadischa. The last
two syllables are, perhaps coincidentally, the same as Deecia.

Alzey, Germany Name Changes #general

Neill & Fran Luebke <nfluebke@...>
 

This summer I did genealogical research in Alzey and came back with a
great deal of photocopied material on the Jews of that city. Among the
documents is a list of 128 Jews who changed their names in response to
the Napoleonic Decree of 1808. The document contains the old names of
the individuals, their new names, birth dates and in some cases their
occupations and marital status. Since who families registered their
names at once, minor children are included.

This is a valuable resource to those researching ancestors in this city
because in many cases a surname was selected by families who may or may
not have been related. Several names which fall into this category are
Baum and the famous Belmont banking family of New York. Anyone
researching a Jewish ancestor >from Alzey circa 1808-1810 may contact me
by private email.

Re your request for someone to take photos of gravestones at the
abovementioned cemeteries....most cemeteries will not only take the photo for
you, gratis, but they may also give you information regarding the Burial
Society that your ancestor belonged to...I found the Riverside Cemetery people
very cordial on the phone and they gave me the name and address of the last
living member of the burial society in case I needed to contact him, plus the
plot numbers, file numbers and deed numbers...Jane Lowenkron, NYC
