I'm searching for information on a town and a landsmanshaftn. The
landsmanshaftn is listed in the subject heading above, but I'm not sure what
the name of the town is. I believe the town was located in Galicia. I'm
searching surnames RUSS and GROSS >from that town. If anyone would know any

Jewish Genealogical Society of Bergen County #general

Edward Rosenbaum <erosenbaum@...>
 

The first meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Bergen County was a
great success. About 25 people attended and its was mutually agreed that
there was a need for a society in our area.

The following decisions were made:

1. We will meet every month on the second Sunday at 2:00 p.m. People can
come as early a 1:00 to shmooze and informally discuss successes, problems
and solutions.

2. Meetings will consist of a schmooze session followed by a group
discussion on a particular topic. The topic for November will be "Passenger
Arrival Records: Why They Are Valuable to Genealogical Research." Potential
future discussions will be on Naturalization and Immigration Records; Using
the Internet for Genealogy; Origins of Jewish Surnames; How to Document Your
Genealogical Research; Evaluating Evidence; Holocaust Research.

3. Initially we will continue to meet at Avotaynu's offices in Bergenfield
until a more suitable place is determined (see directions below). Suggested
sites include JCC of the Palisades, Englewood library or some area
synagogue.

Due to limited seating at the Avotaynu office, please bring your own chair.

4. At the November meeting, we will approve bylaws and officers.

5. One of the members will look into the process of incorporating the
society.

6. Dues will be $20 per year; $25 for families.

Directions to Avotaynu:
155 N. Washington Ave, Bergenfield, New Jersey
Phone: 201-387-7200 (1-800-286-8296 if you are >from a pay phone)
Parking: On-site parking. Park anywhere in the parking lot.

from New Jersey:
Get to NJ Route 4. Take the Teaneck Road exit toward Bergenfield (north on
Teaneck Road). After passing the Teaneck Armory on right, you enter
Bergenfield and the street name changes to Washington Avenue. Go through
town to 155 N. Washington Avenue (across the street >from a Wendy's).
Warning: There is a 155 SOUTH Washington Avenue which you will pass before
passing through the heart of the business district.

from Rockland County, New York:
Take the Palisade Interstate Parkway southbound to Exit 5S (Route 303,
Tappan). Continue on Route 303 southbound. When you enter New Jersey it
becomes Livingston Avenue. Continue some distance, about 7.5 miles, (the
name changes to Knickerbocker Road after passing the Oradell Reservoir) past
the Cresskill monument traffic circle. The first blinker after the circle
is Hickory Avenue. Right on Hickory to the end which is North Washington
Avenue in Bergenfield. Almost immediately after making a right the office
building is on the right.


Railroad Disasters #general

Lynn DiMatteo <LiniWD@...>
 

Not everybody is able to get to a library so easily - and not all libraries
have microfilms of old newspapers, nor are those libraries open convenient
hours. The thread on train crashes was very interesting to me - I was not
even aware there was one that killed 72 people. One of the members of this
group knew the exact date because a family member had been killed. Now the
person who originally asked the question can make the trip to the library
and easily find the old article.

This is the way this list should work - people helping people find
information.

State of the records #lithuania

DNHIowa@...
 

Dear SIG:

The current "All Lithuania" Database will be coming down shortly
while files are being cleaned up - Births in one table, Deaths,
Marriages, Taxes, and Voters in separate tables. And, of course,
Revision Lists. Inputters are working on cleanup as we speak.
Its a huge task, which must be completed before we enter any
new data.

As this cleanup is taking place, current database
introductions are being rewritten, because there will be no
more combined data tables.

Inputters are working round the clock to enter and cleanup
Revision List data.

Its been a creative challenge - we're exilerated, exhausted,
and we've only just begun!

If anyone would like to help in this effort, please contact
our database manager, Anne Rothman at:

<aroth@indy.net> (Anne Rothman) or at:

<ROTHMAN_ANNE_NONLILLY@lilly.com>

She will be more than happy to put you to work.

Port Klaipeda #lithuania

Norman Feldman <felvelnic@...>
 

As a consequence of Saul Issroff's thoughtful response to my questions on
this subject I think it may be important to correct his impressions about
Port Klaipeda.

I have received two direct messages that tell of ancestors who left from
Port Klaipeda. One went >from there to Bremen to England to South Africa in
1889 and the other >from Klaipeda to Hamburg to Liverpool to Canada in what
I guess was about the same time.Certainly,then, one may assume some of our
families used these routes to come to the US.

Saul added another possibility that I had wondered about and needed
information on. Denmark may have been a third link in the chain from
Klaipeda. It is also worth considering.

Although I would not anticipate the availability of records >from Klaipeda,
Hamburg and Denmark[I don't know its port yet] are both very good bets and,
depending on the time period, Bremen may also be.

I thank all that responded to my query this time. Some very important
information may have been unearthed.
