If the householder was eligible to vote, they would appear in voters lists. If they owned or rented property they would appear in the property lists on Scotland's People website. My mother's family the Browns lived in this area of Edinburgh. I do suggest looking through Scotlandspeople website for resources. You pay for a block of views/downloads, according to how many you need.

Hi Arlene,

Your pictures on VM is vague and when come to the unique Jewish names, it's impossible to reed.
When you will try to do better pictures, will do translation without problems.
Thanks and good lack.

Re: Potato Latkes...are you Litvak or Galitizianer? #galicia #lithuania

In my family we always ate them either just with salt or chreyn (the Russian chren) - horeseraddish and beetroot condiment. Delicious. My husband whose father was a Galitzianer from Lvov says they ate them with apple sauce. My family are Litvaks - from Simnas in Suwalki gubernia.

Hi Nina,
 
Interesting Swarttz spelling, double " tt"
 
There were many ways for traveling
Possible the person who purchased and paid for the tick. Had a different last name  , at the time of traveling something came up and couldn't travel...so they sold under the same name
 
Once u were on the boat , no one checked  and if they did u would give them money, a piece of Jewlery, 
 
Everyone knew how important it is to be away from the home country
 
When arrival in usa, entered by the tick.
 
No judgements
 
Have u tried to contact IASI, ARCHIVES, to get a birth certificate under the MOSCOVICI last name?
 
Good luck

Elani,

At this time the LVIA Lithuanian State Historical Archives does not have any images available online.

Should you decide you want to order a copy of the record the process to follow is:
1) send an email in English to istorijos.archyvas@...
2) with all of the information as listed in your photocopied record; emphasis the address LVIA/1236/3/827 because that is the exact place in the archive where the physical record is stored
3) the archive will reply explaining how much money you need to forward
4) once you have sent the money required, the archive then sends you the record.

Grodno Gubernia Revision Lists #records #belarus #general

Robert Mandelbaum
 

I had always known that a particular branch of my family came from Skidel, in Grodno Gubernia, but further research revealed that they had earlier migrated from the nearby town of Ozery. In the 1874 Revision List for Ozery, my ancestor’s entry contains the following comment: “Assign to Skidelsky Jewish society, transferred to State Treasury on June 19, 1878.” Does anyone know just what this would have meant?

Thanks very much,

Re: North Adams, Massachusetts - early Jewish settlers #usa

My family Arbeit/Albert lived in Sandisfield, not far from North Adams.  It wasn't until the early 1920's.  They ran a kosher dairy.  I always wondered why they had come up there.  If there was an established Jewish community in the area, it would make more sense.  Thank you!

Klauznikaite- Lithuanian Jew emigrated to Detroit #usa

Jbaltmanas@...
 

Hello there! I am so excited I found this group. Thanks for adding me. I can use any help or advice! 
 
My great great grandparents through my father were Jozelis Klauznik and Golda Klauznikiene [maiden name Volfsonas]. 
 
They had four children that I know of. One of them was a Jewish bride that a Jew in Detroit purchased and married. They had children, and he had a successful construction business here in Detroit. They sent letters and photographs for a long time back and forth before they married. I don’t know her first name, but her maiden name was Klauznikaite. My grandfather’s second wife destroyed all the documents before they could be photocopied so I’m kind of on my own now.
 
•I am guessing she finally moved to Detroit sometime around 1920-1940. 
 
•Does anyone know a Jewish construction company that was popular at the time?
 
•Does anyone know how to track Jewish brides? 
 
•Does anyone know of a way to track my relative? I’m very experienced with genealogy searches and have looked everywhere online, but I don’t know if someone else has a recommendation.

This is my great grandmother, Feige. I am looking for her sister.

 My maternal grandfather's parents were Galitizianers, my maternal grandmother's parents and my father's parents were from places within the Minsk Gubernia. So it's always both.

Re: Answer to question about Christine Usdin's census translations that was asked during the Latvia SIG meeting on Thursday #latvia

Rschoen9999@...
 

If you search in Google, you can see the link to the translated vital records page, with the links by city, type of record and date.   The link to the open version is the same URL as the one without the links,  but with X’s in various places.    I had assumed that since she passed away, that they had opened it up.   That’s not the case?

at least some of the records, such as the marriage of my great grandmother and the deaths of her mother and stepmother are in JewishGen now.

Re: Trying to figure out which Radomyshl" my family is from #ukraine #poland

Carol Stern
 

Oh my, I've been trying to figure out which Radomyshl is the correct one for many years without success. My grandmother told me herself that was where she was from. She pronounced it Radomisla. I have seen the other towns with the same name but haven't been able to figure it out. The family (named Herzberg) always said they were from Galicia. I would love some help.
