"We are talking about the late 1800s, so is this a geographic/historical thing, that country borders changed so much?"

Records of your family beat DNA every time. Much of what was Prussia became Poland, some Germany. In Napoleon's time, the Kingdom of Poland, roughly, was French, the Department of Warszaw.

Where my ggrandparents lived was Prussian (New East Prussia), French, then Russian; later it was Poland, near Lithuania and Belarus, so they probably spoke some of all these languages.Β  Their neighbors spoke them all. Even in Germany or Italy, people from one town couldn't understand people from another town, unless they were familiar with that language. Our ancestors knew Hebrew and Yiddish, and they spoke whatever languages were spoken around them, as they bought and sold, so they had to buy and sell in whatever language you spoke. If your ancestor did business with Englishmen, he spoke English

My 2nd ggrandfather, actually my ggrandmother's foster father and probable uncle, was a translator for the NYC police department. He was from Sztettin, and spoke the usual bunch of languages, Polish, Russian, German, and dialects of them; Hebrew and Yiddish, of course, and he probably learned enough Italian to get by.

Shana Tova to ALL my Jewish brothers and sisters. I was the first Jewish baby born in the heart of Nazi Germany after the second World War. The entire Jewish community celebrated my birth.Β 
G-d has been in my life. He saved my eye when a Nazi tried to polk it out when I was 5 years old. He saw that when I was in Vietnam that no harm would come to me.Β  May all of you prosper, be in great health, have peace of mind and live until you are 100. My mother is approaching that age.


Viewmate translations requested #translation #lithuania

L Levy
 

Hi!
I've uploaded three documents to viewmate, 85440, 86439 and 86436.Β  These are from internal passport files that I found on Litvak Sig, for two of my great aunts, daughters of Leizer/Leyzer Meierowitz of Smorgon.Β 

One passport was referenced as "German passport in file".Β  That one is a little confusing, I think it's in Russian.Β  The other two documents are in Polish. There's other documents, but I'm trying to use online translator tools for the rest.
Thank you for any help you can offer, Laura


How to find UKRAINE birth and marriage records #ukraine #records #russia

marcia@...
 

Happy New Year! I am researching my paternal grandfather, Jacob Mack, who was born in Ostrog Wolyn, Russia on 9 November 1885. His father's name was Israel Mack, his mother was Annie Lichtenstein. How would I find his birth record, and possibly the marriage records of his parents? He emigrated to to Lynn, Massachusetts (in the US) in 1904. Thank you!

Re: Registry Files: USCIS information #records

David,
Thanks for your response about the Registry Files. Would it be fair to
say that if there is a Cert of Arrival with the naturalization papers,
that no Registry was needed or created

DNA results vs records #dna

Elaine King
 

I have just received updated DNA results from Ancestry. They confirm what I have always known about my father's family, that they were German, or more particularly, Prussian. But in the naturalization records, etc., they are listed as having been born in Russia. (They also say they spoke English, which makes me wonder if they spent some time in England on their way to the U.S.)Β  We are talking about the late 1800s, so is this a geographic/historical thing, that country borders changed so much?
