Passenger Lists in London #general

Arthur S. Meyers <marciarthur@...>
 

Greeting Jewishgenners,

I will be London at the end of October. Are there any archives for
passenger lists such as
the U.S. has at their branches or National in Washington? My grandfather
was said to have
come to England >from Galicia in late 1870's and early 1880's and then gone
back to Galicia.

Are any records open to public view in the London area?

Thank you,

Re: Searching: GOODMANS in Manchester #general

From: Stewart Levy

In 1979 I spent the summer working in England. I lived with an non jewish
English family in Derbyshire. Although they did not know any Jewish people
personally they directed me to the local synagogue and told me of a very
politically prominent and wealthy jewish family. I seem to recall the name
was GOODMAN. Manchester is not too far >from Derby. I hope my memory is
correct. The city is Derby and it is located in the Industrial Midlands.
Rolls Royce Aero Engines is one of the larger employees in the area.

Good luck in your quest.

How to search in Minsk? #general

Herut Shlomoff <heruts@...>
 

Shalom friends,

Somebody that lives in Minsk is willing to help me with my research. She
is not common with genealogy and I need to give her directions where and
how to look for traces.

I really don't know how to do so and I ask for your wise advises!
For example: how to look at the Minsk archive?

What kind of documents?
What are the Russian Names for those documents?

The origins of my families in Belarus, are:
RECHITSA, GOMEL, ORSH, KAPOROVKA (village near Rechitsa).
The surnames: ORCHANSKY, KAPOROVSKY, PEVZNER
(I have birth dates)
Thanks in advance.

Where is shtetl Charev, Poland? #general

Seflaum@...
 

To Jewishgenners:
I am having trouble figuring out the modern-day name of "Charev", Poland (or
that's how my father spelled it to me many years ago). Many different
variations come up in the shtetl-seeker. My father told me that his Chassidic
great-grandfather, born in the early 1800s, was >from this town. Later, some of
his family moved to Ozorkow, close to Lodz, and then finally Lodz in the late
1800s. A lookup in the "Dictionary of Jewish Surnames in the Kingdom of
Poland" showed that his surname was found in Lodz, Warsaw, Piotrkow, and
Bedzin. Does anyone have any ideas about where "Charev" is and what is the
name today? Thanks in advance.

Family Books in Print #general

Sallyann Sack <sallyannsack@...>
 

Dear Colleagues,

AVOTAYNU devotes the fourth issue of every year to personal human
interest stories. At the same time, we also print a list of family
history books that Jewish genealogists have published in the past [or
previous] year(s).

If you have written such a book, but have never listed it in AVOTAYNU, we
will be happy to accept it now. The deadline was October 1, but we can
extend it for a few more days.

Be sure to include: title, author, primary family names included, years
covered and a brief description of the book. Say where it has been
deposited [libraries, archives, etc.] and how it may be ordered. Be sure
to include the price.

Abbreviations #general

Eve Line Blum <blume@...>
 

from time to time, on the LitvakSIG, we can see abbreviations such as FYI,
or SASE, or ASAP.

Please, could you think of us, poor ignorant foreigners (grin... as would
say our Moderator), who don't always know these acronyms ? I'm beginning to
be used to, after having asked here and there, but many friends of mines
goes on asking me about that special English (or American) coded language...

Moreover, I've read about it in Jewishgen rules (since Jewishgen is hosting
LitvakSIG), #3 Queries and Replies :

3.4 (excerpt)
JewishGen reaches a global audience.Many of your readers do not have
English as >their primary language. [...] The use of slang and
abbreviations are >discouraged. Remember also that many newcomers don't
have a clue as to what >SSDI, LOC, FHL, mean. It is always proper to
clarify an acronym by using a >completely spelled out reference at least
once in your post.
Many thanks in advance for your understanding.

PS : For the ones who don't know about the above abbreviations :
FYI = For Your Information
SASE = Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope
ASAP = As Soon As Possible
