1939 Lithuania Telephone Directory now searchable #general

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

The 1939 Lithuania Telephone Directory, "Lietuvos telefono abonentu
sarasas," is now full-text searchable and viewable at
http://genealogyindexer.org thanks to the generous cooperation of Yad
Vashem and Yoram Mayorek.

Searches with default options will include this and all other sources.
To limit a search to only this directory, append {d1038} to your
search term, like this: zalcbergas {d1038}. Or, you can limit a
search to all Lithuanian sources by instead changing the "Any Place"
option to "Lithuania" (note, however, that some sources covering the
entire Russian Empire, or all of Europe, will not be included in that
case).

Since this directory is organized by locality, it is possible to jump
to a place's entries using the linked index at
http://genealogyindexer.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4718 and manually
search/browse. You might find something the search engine does not,
since it relies on Optical Character Recognition (OCR), which is not
100% accurate -- although accuracy is very high for this source. For
searches across the entire directory (e.g., all occurrences of a
surname) or within a large city (e.g., everyone at a street address),
manual searching is probably not practical and not more accurate than
the OCR. For advanced search syntax, see

ViewMate; deciphering a town name and a NYC address from a manifest #general

Moishe Miller
 

Dear Group,

I would very much appreciate it if someone could help decipher and locate 2
locations:

The 2nd page, line 26, of the ship manifest for Jankel Zimbol -
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM33103

Jankel Zimbol, living in Ciechanowiec, Poland, came to the USA on Sep
16, 1913. In his naturalization papers, he lists that he is born in
Grodno, Russia.

On line 26 of the ship manifest, he lists his birth place as something
that looks like "Gekenhoop". Does anyone have a better idea for the name
of the town?

Also, he lists what seems to be his brother, Morris Cohen, living in NYC
at 24, "something" Street. Can you make out the name of the street? Is
the name of his brother (?) Morris Cohen?

I looked at http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/grodno/towns.htm and do not
seem to find a town in Grodno Guberniya that is close to this name.

Any advice or suggestions would be welcome.

Thank you for your efforts,
Moishe Miller

MODERATOR NOTE: Please respond either to Moishe, directly, or via the form
in ViewMate. Of course, research tools or methodology may be shared with the
group.

Generous help from "Genners" #general

jel <jel@...>
 

I am again overwhelmed by my fellow "genners'" willingness to assist
others in their research. In response to my request for an Israel
telephone book lookup, many offered their assistance. I hope I responded
to all, but if I missed someone I'm offering my thank-you here.

Due to one person's initiative and interest, I have been contacted by a
family member of the person I sought, and we are corresponding. My
special thanks to Yosef Kaner.

MODERATOR NOTE: Heartfelt thank yous are often the best reward. Just a reminder
to all: donations to JewishGen in honor of those who help is also nice gesture.

Czernovitz #general

Israel P
 

We have a woman >from Skalat (east Galicia) who we just learned lived for
some unknown amount of time in Czernovitz before going to the US in 1893
at age twenty-four.

She seems to have been married while in Czernovitz, but not when she went
to the US.

The passenger list says "native country Romani" and "last residence Skalat."
Would the brief Czernovitz period account for the "native country?"

Yizkor Book Project, March 2014 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

The Children of Israel ran out of time before their flight >from Egypt and we
at the Yizkor Book Project ran out of time trying to carry out all that we
planned during March. Strange comparison? True, but I did want to let you
know that we haven't been idle over the last month and also wanted to bring
up the subject of Pesach/Passover... So, I would like to take this
opportunity to wish all of you and your families an extremely enjoyable
Pesach holiday.

So what did we actually do during March? I'm pleased to let you know that
three new books were published during this last month through our Yizkor
Books in Print (YBIP) Project:

- Drahichyn, Belarus (Drohitchin Memorial (Yizkor) Book 500 years of Jewish
Life)
- Korczyna, Poland (Korczyna Memorial Book)
- Horodenka, Ukraine (Yizkor (Memorial) Book of Horodenka, Ukraine)

In addition, I have excellent news regarding the availability of new formats
for existing books. Apart >from a usual hard cover format, we have now added
a soft cover and e-book format for one of our existing books:

- Yampol, Ukraine (Yampol Memorial Book) and details of these new formats
and prices can be seen at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html as well
as information on the other books we now have available.

Clearly, if these formats prove popular, we will consider preparing other
books these ways.

I do try, as much as possible, to regularly thank the hundreds of
volunteers who help us out in various aspects of the Yizkor Book and are
behind its success. We have an online list of more than 500 volunteers at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ and in this minor way we have endeavored to
let the world know of the important contributions of these wonderful people.
You would like to contribute? My "door" is always open to anyone wishing to
take some part in the YB Project.

Now to facts and figures for March.

During this last month we have added in 5 new projects:
