Tarnow LDS Microfilm #general

Lebn@...
 

For those searching in TARNOW, there are 4 LDS microfilms. I recently
reviewed film # 948420, Poland-Krakow-Tarnow, births and deaths 1849-1870.
The beauty of this film is the DEATH INDEX at the very beginning of the film.
Legibility is very good and I recall seeing many of the surnames being
searched by those listing on JGFF. There is no birth index but this film
should be reviewed by Tarnow researchers.

Jacob Hirsch SCHACHTER #general

Frankel <frankel@...>
 

Hi all!
I am trying to locate the descendants of Jacob Hirsch SCHACHTER. He
was born in Austria in 1874, registered for the draft during World
War I, and was a furniture varnisher by trade. His wife's name was
Mollie and the 1920 census lists five children: Max, Samuel, Hannah,
Gussie, and Rebecca. They lived in Brooklyn, NY.

I think he may be my father's "Uncle Jake". Any information will be
welcome. TIA

Searching: BAKST in Johannesburg #general

Stuart Liss <sliss@...>
 

Could someone in Johannesburg lookup a Dr. Joe BAKST in the phone book
and email me his address? Does anyone in S.A. know any BAKSTs or BAKSHTs?

My Bakst family came >from Oshmyany, Lithuania and a lot of Lithuanians
emigrated to S.A.

Thanks very much.

Is the name Sarah MAHIER, Jewish. I'm not sure if the Mahier is
her maiden name or middle. Her married name was BYRNES changed
to BURNS upon arrival to the USA. Aleeta

Social Security and birth names #general

IsraelP <p2o5rock@...>
 

It seems to me an obvious truth that many people enter
the Social Security system using their birth names but
leave it using another name (most frequently the birth
name of the most recent husband).

Many of us have surnames sufficiently uncommon that we
can learn much >from a general search of the surname,
however we miss many people because SSDI is based on
the name at the time of death.

Is there any way at all (not just online) to get information
from Social Security based on a search for the surname used
at the time the SS-5 was filed? (In fact, they should also
know when the change was made, which could help us learn
approximate marriage dates. But I'm not going to be greedy.)
Does FOIA empower the public to (excuse the expression)
demand
this?

Re: LEBOWITZ/LEVIN in Kelme, Lithuania #lithuania

Probably no match, but our family name, originally Leibowitz (spelling
may vary) was changed to Levine upon entry to the United States, by all
but one of my father's brothers. They all came >from Kelm, Lithuania. A
match made in heaven?
