Searching Anna RUBINSTEIN/ BOGUS N.Y. Connection #general

Seflaum@...
 

To all JewishGenners:
I am getting a little closer to finding Chana/Anna RUBINSTEIN (daughter of
Mendel RUBINSTEIN) who was born in Vilnius, Lithuania in the 1890's and
immigrated to the U.S. as a teenager. In the 1920 Federal Census for New York
State was the following for New York County (Manhattan):

Anna RUBINSTEIN, "age 22, single, occupation: dressmaker"
Birthplace: "Grodner, Russia/Poland"
Mother tongue: "Yiddish"
Date of immigration & status: "1914, alien"
Relationship to head of household: "boarder"

Head of household: "Abraham BOGUS, age 39, tailor, Grodner, Russia/Poland"
Other residents: "wife, Minnie BOGUS, age 36, daughters Sadie, age 12, Ida,
age 1 and sons Alex, age 9 and baby boy (name illegible) age 7 months,
Grodner, Russia/Poland"
Additional boarder: "Sonia KASHDAN, occupation: egg counter"

I would like to talk to anyone in the BOGUS family who might know anything
about Anna RUBINSTEIN. According to the Social Security Death Index, Alexander BOGUS was born in 1910 and died in 1961. Anna was the only member
of the RUBINSTEIN family who left Lithuania before the Holocaust. The rest
of the family was killed, except two members - one was my mother. Btw, does
anyone know if "Grodner" at that time referred to anyone >from the vicinity
of Grodno Gubernia, and was Vilna included in reference to this?

Finding BMD records #general

COL HARRY E STEIN <YTPT23A@...>
 

I have noted many requests for information on how to find and send
for city, county, state and country birth, marriage and death records.
I commend to you the book entitled, "International Vital Records
Handbook", by Thomas Jay Kemp, published by Genealogical Publishing
Company. The book provides this information as well as cost and
printed application forms for the repositories you seek. These forms
can be photocopied and when sent with payment meets the requirement
of the municipality. The book covers the United States very
comprehensively and to a lesser extent, other countries. You may
also wish to consider, "The Handy Book for Genealogists" published by
The Everton Publishers, Inc. Also a good book but less user friendly
in that it does not contain the forms, but does list genalogical
societies that have similiar interests >from which you can seek help.
These books are held in many libraries and can be ordered through the
interlibrary loan program.

First name Leicie #general

D. Abrams <dabrams1@...>
 

Hi-
Has anyone come across or know anything about this name? I just discovered
a relative named Leicie LEVENKROHN on a ship's manifest. I have never
heard of this name and could find no mention of it on the Discussion Group
Archives or on several other databases. Her family came >from the Zolkiew
area in Galicia, if that helps at all.

Is it a form or Leie?

Dear Fellow JewishGenners,

I, too, am translating part of a yiskor book and need help with a few
Yiddish words, abbreviations, titles.

1. alef, yud, nun, zayin, shin
If used as a title before a person's name, this could equate to "Ing."
meaning "Engineer."

Folks, this message is just to call your attention to the fact
that the "court of last resort" is to place your message in this
mailing list. Not that you're not welcome....you are <grin>, but
first things first, please

Because we can only post one digest a day and it has been
getting bigger and bigger and b i g g e r ...we would like
to bring your attention to a specific section in the information
about the JewishGen Discussion Group...accessed >from our
homepage http://www.jewishgen.org Go there, and just click on
the Discussion Group and you'll next see a Table of Contents.
I'd like you to pay particular attention to

V. How to Get the Most Out of Using JewishGen

Frankly, this Discussion Group is only one small part of our
organization, and many of the other places which might well hold
the answers to your questions are to be found in Section V

If you do nothing else today, please take a few minutes to visit
that section and explore the sites listed. Not only will you be
doing us a favor by finding answers instead of posting the
questions that most beginners ask, you'll be doing yourself a
favor in opening the doors to many more avenues of research.

As a matter of fact, it might be a good idea for you to start at
the top of the homepage and click on every single link so that
you will know what JewishGen is all about. When you get to the
searchable databases, type in every surname of interest to you,
you might be amazed at what turns up! I found one of my primary
surnames in the Phoenix Project, enabling me to document that
there were indeed family connections in Brest Litovsk in the
1940's....something no-one alive today could have known about.

Try it out...who knows what rewards await you.

Happy hunting, and thanks for helping us to improve this forum
