assist the individual in making an informed decision as to which program to
consider using. The genealogy programs that are discussed are: Ancestral
Quest, Brother's Keeper, Heredis, iFamily, Legacy, MacFamilyTree, Reunion,
and RootsMagic. The webinar teaches on how to select the software that is
right for the individual and how to transfer your files >from the old program

Opinion of given name #general

Tracy Jones
 

I have posted on Viewmate requesting opinion/interpretation of names of great
uncle. The link is here:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/responselist.asp?key=44246

Chaim Taxman/Taksermann immigrated with mother, Freida and several siblings in
1903. His name on the ships manifest was Chaim. His birth place was likely Murafa,
Russia. He doesn't appear with mother and siblings in 1905NYCensus but he shows up
as Hyman Taxman in 1910USCensus. He married in 1917 in NYC (Kings) to Helen Weiner
with the name Birth Taxman. WWI Draft Registration - Birth Taxman born in Murafa,
Russia. 1925NYCensus -now Boris Taxman WWII Draft Registation - Boris Taxman
1940USCensus - Boris Taxman
Hoping someone has an insight on these names. I have sent for his naturalization
paperwork and am attempting to locate burial information. Has anyone seen the name
Birth before? Is it a possible double name situation. Thank you for your help.
