There is a town spelled Smorgon located in Belarus. It is northwest of Minsk,
roughly equidistant >from Minsk and Vilna and spelled Smarhon on modern maps.
Oshmyany sounds alot like Osmanya which is a town mentioned by my family which
comes >from Smorgon, Belarus.
Please get in touch with me.
In Melbourne there is a Smoron Family - very large and wealthy - who I
think goes >from that villiage - Smorgon Industries

Re: Lachowicze Records Translated #belarus

I'm only interested if the surname LYAKOHITSKY is in any of the records. My
grandmother was Malka LYAKOHITSKY and she was born in Slutsk. I just assume
the family must have been originally >from Lachowicze.

Re: Purchase of records #latvia

Iris B. Sitkin <iris-macsie@...>
 

As a member of the Litvak SIG, I've recently participated in one of several
purchase of records, in my case box tax records >from 1858; as well as the
dataentry for the translations.

While Latvia SIG is smaller than Litvak SIG, I am wondering if we can (are
already?) do the same thing here. If census, box tax, candle tax, or
birth-marriage-death records can be located for the mid to late 1800's,
maybe we can buy them and have them translated through the SIG; then enter
the data into a database for posting on the web.

In the 1858 records for the town of my ancestors, I've identified 30+
members of my family. Unfortunately for me, I am missing the connecting
ancestor to my great, great grandfather. So while the surname is the same
and many of the first names are family names of my family, I cannot make
the link. Still, I am close and hope that future record purchases can help
me get that missing link. I'd love to do the same for the maternal side of
this family whose name was KARLIN and who came >from Riga or near Riga.

What are we doing so far?

Iris

Dr MARS has found that Margarete von GOLDSCHMIDT, born in Vienna
1872, died in Tavicovici in 1942.
Did she die in an extermination or concentration camp ?
Thank you for the answer.

HELP with printing my Family Tree #general

Warren Kohn <wkohn@...>
 

I need advice with printing out my family tree which runs 19' in length.
I am using Family Tree Maker 5.0 and have been trying to print it out in
"banner" format on a Cannon Bubble Jet 4300 and/or HP DeskJet 722C. The
bubble jet documentation limits length to 6' but I can't print each
segment in 6' increments. I can print in "overlap" format which means I
have a lot of cutting/pasteing to do. The HP DeskJet documentation
indicates that it will print in "banner" format but it will only print one
page and then stops. I can also get it to print in "overlap" but that
still requires cutting/pasteing.

I can live with cutting/pasteing if I have to but I would much rather have
it all in one length. I have tried reducing font size and block size but
that will only reduce the length minimally. Besides, the font is already
so small that any further reduction will make it difficult to see.

Can anyone give me a suggestion as to what I should do to correct my
problem (other than purchasing new software or printer). Please e-mail
suggestions to below address.
