Re: Slovakia civil registration records #records #slovakia

Vivian Kahn,

I should have asked: is Mr. Abolson digitizing all civil registration records, or just those for Jewish births, deaths, and marriages?

Thanks again.

Re: Slovakia civil registration records #records #slovakia

Carole Bass
 

Vivian Kahn,

Thank you very much. The records I'm looking for are from the Kosice Region — from the town of Gelnica or thereabouts — and are more than 100 years old. Are any digitized records online?

I will gladly donate in support of this work. I've worked with Hungarian Civil Registration records from elsewhere in Hungary and can usually find my way around the records, but I don't know that that qualifies me to transcribe. I don't read Hungarian or Slovak.

POLIN Museum recalls the Jews imprisoned in the ghettoes across occupied Poland (and Ukraine)

tony hausner
 

 

The core exhibition at POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews has been enriched with a new installation. It presents the stories of Jewish residents of several Polish towns who at the time of the Second World War were imprisoned in the ghettoes.

Warsaw ghetto is the most widely-known, yet the Germans established six hundred sealed-off quarters for the Jewish minority, among others in Lwów, Łódź, Przemyśl, Radom, Rzeszów and Tarnów. The first ghetto was established eighty-one years ago, on 8 October 1939.

My maternal grandparents were from Malat: Kvas or Kwas, and Mindlin.
Litvaks! And we used both sour cream and apple sauce, though my choice was always apple sauce.

Searching for David ABRAMOWITZ-Boston -late 1800's-mid 1900's #usa

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My great great grandmother, Gittle ABRAMOWITZ came to the USA around
1870-1880 to New Haven, Ct. As she had remarried around her arrival we
are not sure what her second husband's name was (possibly LAZAROFF or
variant).

She had been widowed before leaving Europe (Novarodok) and came to the
states with 4 young children. The eldest (we presume his name was
David) was supposedly an older teenager left New Haven to find his
future in Boston.

As our family oral history goes (no records) David went to work in a
department store and eventually rose to management through
(supposedly) marriage into the owner's family. It is also supposed
that he changed his family name possibly to ABRAMS or something
similiar.

Around 1936 his Israeli nephew, my grandfather, who emigrated from
Palestine to Hartford,Ct. tried to contact his uncle at the store and
was rebuffed by the sec'y stating that David was not well and was
recuperating in his Florida home.

I state again all of the above is oral history written in an
autobiography of a family member no longer alive. If any of the above
sounds familiar to anyone I would love to hear.

TIA

Re: translation from Russian needed #translation

JoAnne Goldberg
 

Google translate works well, but the nuances of language can cause confusion. Does "ship" mean to send, or is it a big boat? The root of дороготы is "dear" and one definition of "dear"  is expensive. But  you'd also use that Russian root to refer to a dear friend -- дорогой друг

Re: Searching for family of Brunya Golberg from Krepice, Poland #poland

Renee Steinig
 

Bronia Goldberg, whose arrival and naturalization records are on
Ancestry, is probably the person you're looking for. She was born on 1
Mar 1910 Krzepice and married Chaim, born 19 Apr 1908. Son Lasor was
born 3 Mar 1950 in Germany and daughter Sarah was born 4 Jan 1952 in
Chicago. Chaim died in 1990, last residence Chicago.

Lasor and wife Esther live in Brooklyn. They're listed in the Verizon
White Pages (https://www.therealyellowpages.com/index.php).

Re: translation from Russian needed #translation

I am working on google translate. Not easy from Russian to English. 
I used google translate for дороготы . It translates as Expensive.

Still playing with the translator.
Maybe someone out there can suggest a better translator.

The bottom handwriting may be the name of the photographer.
The handwritten part is fotograf. The samped tex is probably his name. The small stamp below it may be the town where the photographer is located.

Re: Town in Minsk #belarus

Mary Ellen,

Try using https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/Search.asp
You can do a soundex search on the town name. 
Keep in mind that most towns had several names in different languages, including Yiddish variant town names.  The above database includes these.

Where did you see the town name Sibishoff?  Do you have this person's naturalization papers, passenger manifest, or other records that may list the town of birth?

 Regards,

Sherri Bobish


Re: Looking for Herman/Hyman Wayler on ships manifest #general #lithuania

Sherri Bobish
 


Debbie,

Unless Herman's nat papers have attached to it a certificate that the manifest has been found (this is not done on earlier naturalizations) than I suggest you assume that the ship name and/or the date of arrival is in error.

Also, do not limit your search for a manifest to NY.  He may have arrived at another port (even through Canada.)

My grandfather and all his siblings arrived in NY in 1892.  I have the passenger manifest.  On their naturalization papers only one of them got the ship name correctly.  One listed a name of a ship that hadn't even been built yet in 1892.

Have you searched for surname Wayler in records from Kovna (Kaunas)?
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Lithuania/

A quick search at the above site (using soundex search for the surname) finds variants such as:  WELLER, VELER, FELER, etc.

Regards,

Sherri Bobish

Connie,

Try using www.familysearch.org which has very large worldwide databases, i.e. census, vital records, etc.

I suggest starting with what you know about current family and working your way back one generation at a time.
