Re: town in Kiev Gubernya #general

Phyllis Kramer
 

Susan Lubow asked for help: My husband's family comes >from various
towns in the Kiev guberniya. His grandmother told of family members
who came >from Vidimke or Vidumka. I would think that this may be a
small shtetl near Brusilow.
Can place Vidimke or Vidumka for me?
---
I think i found it.....here's what i did
First i looked for Brusilov...and found the JewishGen Community page at
http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~community~-1036408;
i noted the coordinates of Brusilov...5017...2932

Susan said the town was nearby...so i went to the jewishgen radius
search at http://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/LocRad.asp

I put in brusilovs coordinates 5017/2932..and
looked for towns within 30 miles ... starting with V...no success;
then i looked for towns which had mk in their names
found:
Khutor Vydumka, Doloniya Vydumka...at 5014/2912 Ukraine... 15.1 miles
WS of Brusilov! I hope that's the right one....

Isn't JewishGen wonderful !!!!!!!!!!!

Stanford has city directories for Lubny, I do not read Russian, maybe
you can get someone to translate the directories. They are at the Green
Library.
Some years ago I wrote the Historic museum, I got a nice reply but the
had no data. Please let's try for the city directories at least it is
some thing..

Re: Louis Kramer passenger manifest #ukraine

Richard Cooper
 

May I respectfully suggest that this thread has been closed with unseemly haste?
If you read Marilyn Levinson's posting of 18 August you will see that
she specifies the port of departure (Antwerp, Belgium) but not that of
arrival in the USA.
Although more came via New York than via any other port, a significant
number came through one of the 300 other ports. Boston,MA, Portland,ME
and Galveston,TX spring to mind, and there are many others.
Also a number (like my great-uncle Schmuil JAROSZEWSKI) came via
Quebec or other Canadian ports and made their way to the USA overland
(see my article 'Not >from Odessa After All', Shemot Vol.20 No.3 &
Vol.21 No.1) - in Schmuil's case, via Rhode Island, eventually to
California.

Family of Fanny FABER from Karlsruhe #germany

GIDON LEV
 

Dear Gersig,

I am looking for the family of Fanny FABER (1852-1932) who married Max
LOEW in 1875. They lived in Karlsruhe and had nine children about which
I have full information.

According to their wedding document I know that her father's name was
Jakob FABER and her mother's maiden name Zitona FUERST.
Furthermore I know that the FABER family was living in Karlsruhe for
many years (maybe generations).

Besides of these facts I don't know nothing about the family. I would
mostly appreciate if anybody could tell me in which way I could get some more
records and which data sources I could use.

Gidon Lev, Israel gidonl@...

Re: Germany, Hesse, Civil Registration, 1874-1927 - SITE CITE #germany

Roger Lustig
 

Judith:
No question but that Familysearch.org is an essential resource. But
somehow, when it comes to Hessen--or, more particularly the Marburg
Archive and its Neustadt branch--they do the darndest things.

They've had the Standesamt records you reference "available" for several
years now. But most of us can't use them >from home. Meanwhile, the
archive itself has put the same stuff up and added much more.

The other Marburg problem is with the Hessen-Nassau Miscellaneous Church
Records 1801-1875. This is a masterpiece of miscataloging that has
undoubtedly kept many researchers >from finding useful information. The
Jewish records in this set are numerous, and perhaps half of them are
either misdescribed, listed as "civil" or as some other denomination.
See my piece, "Buried Treasure," in the Spring 2014 _Avotaynu_.

In any event, thanks for mentioning this, and for reminding all of us to
check back often to see what else Familysearch has put up lately.

Roger Lustig asks "Have you actually used this resource?" I only have one
surname (HASENLAUF)that corresponds to this area (Frankfurt am Main), and I
searched it and no hits were found, which didn't surprise me, as the person
may have been adopted into the HASENLAUF family. I have used
Familysearch.org extensively over the years and believe it to be a vital
genealogy site, as well as the Mormon microfilms. Also, I wish to clarify
that I continually check both Ancestry.com and Familysearch.org to see which
databases they have added that could be of interest not only to myself, but
to all Jewish researchers, and if I find something I consider of general
interest I post it. Same story if I run across something while surfing the
net. I have received many "thank yous" over time for doing this.....!
