How best to write your family story #general

RICHARD FRIEDMAN
 

Dear Genners,
Like many of you, for me, the purpose of doing genealogy is to collect
the facts to write my family story in a compelling, readable and
organized way which will high-lite what my grandparents, parents and
other relatives did and what we can learn >from them.

I plan on using the Creative Nonfiction approach so that hopefully the
story will read like a novel.I would also like to include articles on
various topics such as Jewish history in Europe, The Pale, stories and
facts about their shtetl`s, my own roots trip to them, the Ellis Island
experience, maps, to name a few. I open with my grandfather sailing for
America, as the first in the family chain, leaving his wife and children
behind in England and then flashback to his and my grandmother`s family
tree.;then possibly to their sibling, their children grandchildren etc.

I am seeking a good outline for the book and as to how best to proceed.

Where would you put the articles i.e at the end of each chapter ,in a
collection at the end of the book?

Any and all ideas are welcome. Do you have the names of any books,
family histories, articles etc that you are aware of that I can review.

We are taught that when you forget the dead, they die a second time. I
am committed that the good of my family shall live on and shall service
as a source of inspiration to my children, grandchildren and posterity.

Thanks in advance for your ideas and help.

Michael NAGELBUSH-Phoenix, Az #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

We are developing a large family project in Jerusalem and are searching for
descendants of my grandmother's eldest brother, with whom we have lost
contact over the years. Hoping that members of this forum can contact someone
in Arizona who is a greatgrandson of the above brother Nathan SCHECTER..

According to one site, there is a Michael NAGELBUSH age 67 living in Phoenix, Az .
According to our family tree the age would be suitable. According to the tree,
compiled in 1977, Michael was married to Janet SCHULTZ.

I would greatly appreciate if someone in Phoenix could look up the
above, and if his wife is Janet as mentioned above if he would please
contact me in order to assist us in our family project.

Finding Town Information on JewishGen #general

Phyllis Kramer
 

Alan Shuchat posted a great technique for finding towns.....
Here's a technique for solving problems like this. The Communities Main Page
on JewishGen lets you search for all towns within up to 30 miles of the
latitude and longitude of a given location.

And then he added
Unfortunately, it's hard to find that page directly.

Right you are Alan...so here's the directions...

1.Go to any JewishGen page and click on the Database Oval.
2. Then click on ...Search for places by name The JewishGen Gazetteer
3. Then you have 3 choices:
....a..The JewishGen Communities Database (~6,000 places).
....b.. Search for places by name The JewishGen Gazetteer
...c. Search for places by location Radius Search (within 30 miles)

happy hunting !

SEGALOFF/SEGALOV from Silistra, Bulgaria and Paris #general

Mark Halpern
 

I am searching for any relatives / descendants of brothers Nissim and
Marco SEGALOFF or SEGALOV. The parents names were Lazar SEGALOFF and
Mathilde ABOULACH. Nissim was born in Silistra, Bulgaria in 1896. Both
Nissim and Marco lived in Paris in ca. 1940. Nissim left Paris in early
1941 for New York City by way of Sofia, Bulgaria, Moscow, Vladivostok,
Yokohama, Japan,and Seattle, Washington arriving New York City about
June 1941. Marco remained in Paris and I cannot find any trace of him.
Nissim remained in New York City, was a championship backgammon player,
became a U.S. citizen in 1956 and then disappears in 1964.

If anyone has any information on this family or any SEGALOFF family with
roots in Bulgaria, please contact me privately.

Re: Lookup request at Brooklyn Public Library #general

Bruce did not specify the years of the Brooklyn telephone directories
he is interested in, but many city directories and telephone
directories are already online courtesy of the BPL and Internet Archive:

1856-1909 - http://www.bklynlibrary.org/citydir/
1909-1967 - https://archive.org/details/brooklynpubliclibrary?&sort=date

I believe the Brooklyn Public Library has past telephone books for the
borough on microfilm. If anyone happens to be going there to do
research and would have time to make one quick look-up for me, please let me know

Looking for Zsigmond & Maria PINCZES, Buffalo, NY #general

Alex Magocsi
 

Both Zsigmond and Maria separately entered the US via Ellis Island in the early
part of the 20th century. It appears that their home was in Halmi Hungary, now
Halmeu, Romania. Both appear to have been born abt 1876 but there is confusing data
in the documents I have used.

I am trying to establish what became of them after the 1940 US federal census.
In 1940, and 1935, they were living at 36 Ontario Street in Buffalo, Erie Co., New
York. Zsigmond PINCZES had become Zigmond PINCES by this time; his wife is shown as
Mary.

Their daughter, who entered the US as Ilona PINCZES, became Ethel, the wife of
Isador GROSS who were also living in Buffalo with their daughter Caroline in 1940.

I know the fate of the GROSS family and am solely interested in Zigmond and Maria
at this time. I have searched numerous online sources and also both Jewish and
Christian cemetery records but have lost track of them after the 1940 census. I am
looking in both Jewish and Christian records since it appears that a conversion
took place along the line at some point. Uncle Izzy, a Hungarian Jew, and Aunt
Ethel are buried in Roman Catholic cemetery.

Do the surnames PINCZES or PINCES ring a bell with anyone?

Thank for any assistance coming my way.

HAGYMASI from Szolnok #hungary

Dear Siggers,


Eszter Maria HAGYMASI, the daugther of Marton HAGYMASI and Sara KUN was born in
1901 in SZOLNOK. She married Bela NEUMANN in 1928 in Budapest, she is noted as
divorced in their marriage record. Hagymasi is probably a 'hungarianized' name.

Does anything look familiar to anyone?
