Hi Ivonne,

I'm sorry that I can't help you with your family search, but I noticed that
they came >from Ilya, Belarus. My Eckman family came >from there as well. My
great great grandfather, Yakov Kopel (the son of Hillel) Eckman was a rabbi
in Ilya. Supposedly he studied with the Chafetz Chaim there. The Eckmans
also lived in Dalginovo which is close to Ilya.

I was wondering if you had any information on either town, or possibly on
my family. Have you ordered any records >from there? I would like to do
that. Do records still exist?

I hope to hear >from you.

Sincerely,

Michael Trapunsky

Maps #general

Solicitors Chambers <lawful@...>
 

Trying to work out where various ancestors were living in "Poland" over
past centuries, I think that it would be helpful to have transparent
political maps, valid as a particular date, which you could superimpose on
unchanging geographical maps, maybe in a loose-leaf format. Does this
already exist?

To All

The East European Jewish Heritage Project, in cooperation with
our affiliate the Union of Religious Jewish Congregations of the
Republic of Belarus, is undertaking the restoration of the
cemeteries in RAKOV and RADOSHKOVICHI.

The East European Jewish Heritage Project and the Union are also
restoring the VOLOZHYN Yeshiva. This building, which once housed
the founding institution of the Yeshiva movement, is now home to
a down at the heels culinaria. It's probably one of the few
Yeshivas where you can buy a ham sandwich. To me that's a like
selling hot dogs in St. Patrick's Cathedral. It will be
converted to a Research and Resource Centre of Jewish Culture.
Amongst other things it will be a repository for kahil records
now in private hands. We intend to provide on-line services to
genealogists.

We need help. Not just financial. If you can help with
publicity, organize fund raising or just have suggestions about
what you would like to see done and how, please contact me. We'd
be glad to assist in work on other cemeteries and landmarks.

Thanks very much for your help.

Searching for a volunteer to read or photograph a few gravestones in
Clifton, NJ (at West Ridgelawn Cemetery). The cemetery is located at
"Dwas Line" and Allwood Roads. Unfortunately the cemetery has not been
cooperative in my diligent efforts to obtain the information directly. I
think a direct quote >from the cemetery staff pretty well sums up the
situation: "We don't take photos, and no one here reads Jewish."

Thank you in advance.

The English spelling of my family name is
VELSHER
but it is a transliteration >from Russian. Therefore, I am not sure how
to search for a name spelled in Cyrillic. In addition, the Russian
spelling itself must be a transliteration >from Rumanian or Polish.

The soundex search of this name does not yield anything close, so I am
somewhat stuck - any help is greatly appreciated.

Marriage Records, Philadelphia, PA #general

Jeanne Gold <JeanneGold@...>
 

According to the recorder/clerk at the City Archives for Philadelphia, PA,
there is a marriage index for 1885-1916 (inclusive). However, he is fairly
certain this index is only available at their offices (court house) and
that there are no other copies of the index available anyplace else. (Has
anyone checked the FHC for this index?)

Some links to their information about searching:
http://www.phila.gov/phils/carchive.htm
http://www.phila.gov/phils/records.htm
http://www.phila.gov/phils/Docs/Inventor/genealgy.htm

The City Archives was located at:
Suite 942
401 N. Broad Street
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19108
Telephone: 215-686-1581
e-mail: archives@phila.gov
However, their site mentions a move to: 3101 MARKET ST
(Note: have phoned 4 times and sent 2 emails. Phones were never answered
nor did I receive a reply to my emails).

To request a marriage search, do the following:

(1) send two checks each made payable to the "City of Philadelphia".
(a) $15 (for a search)
(b) $10 (for a certified copy; if the record is not found, I understood
this check would be returned)

(2) send a SASE

(3) send a written request, including:
(a) husband's name, birth date/place (if known) and husband's parents
names (if known)
(b) wife's name and maiden name, birth date/place (if known) and husband's
parents names (if known)
(c) approximate years to search (he thought there may be a limit of a 5
year span.

(4) Mail to:

Room 415
City Hall
Philadelphia, PA 19107

Hope this helps someone ...
