Yahrzeit reminder in genealogical websites #general

Todd Edelman <edelman@...>
 

Hi,

I know that e.g. Geni.com has a "Birthday Reminder" -- do any of its
competitors have something to help us remember the dates of death of
ancestors? Or does a computer-based Jewish calendar have the ability to
communicate this event for a high number of persons?

Thanks!

Re: Meaning of birth record - Bolszowce #poland

Mark Halpern
 

Hi Barbara:

I cannot answer all your questions, but will try a few of them.

1. Does "truly Spindel" indicate the father's mother's birth name?
Most likely Salamon was born illegitimate to the Austrian Crown
and legally was given his mother's surname.

This tells you that he was using Weintraub as his surname,
but should rightly have used Spindel, most likely his mother's
maiden name.

2. Does "living in Dolhe" mean that where he lives separate >from
his wife, or that he was both there, or that he has lived there?
Not likely.

I think both were living in Bolszowce if house #180 was
their residence. Please be aware that the location of the
birth is just that, not necessarily the house they inhabited.
I have seen many cases where children were born in grandparents'
houses or other family members' houses. So maybe this family
lived in Dolhe. Also, the "living in" reference may mean domiciled.
Salamon was legally domiciled in Dolhe, where he was likely born.

3. Did the grandparents just deal in grain or did they likely
grow it too?

Most likely the family was involved in the alcoholic spirits
business. My family was in this business in 1904 in Galicia.
My family had a lease for that business >from the local Polish
landowner. They grew the grain, distilled the grain into spirits,
and ran the local Inn, where the alcohol was sold. I had other
family members who were grain traders and likely bought grain
from folks like my grandfather and sold to other distillers or bakers.
4. Are the godfather/witnesses likely to be random strangers or
relatives?

Not usually. In my experience with Galician records, most
witnesses were paid members of the local Jewish community
or Kehilla. However, some were actually relatives. There is
no way to tell, unless they are identified as such, or you find
the connection in other documents.

I have some experience in reviewing these records, both as
a volunteer for JRI-Poland and a family researcher. Nothing
is ever black and white. Although the regulations for recording
the records were standardized in 1877, the local Jewish registrars
did not apply the regulations uniformly. Look at as many
family records that you can find to ensure that your assumptions
are correct.

By the way, the AGAD Archive now has 1906-1910 Bolszowce births.
In order to index these records, we need interested researchers
to contribute funds for this indexing. A contribution of
$75 or more will qualify the donor to receive the Excel files
of the indices once they are available. These Excel files are
available to qualified contributors before the indices are
placed online. To contribute, please see instructions at
http://jri-poland.org/support.htm and make sure to identify your
contribution for "AGAD-Bolszowce."

I submitted a birth record for translation which Daniel kindly
translated word for word. Thank you again!

My problem now is understanding what it means. Here is Daniel's
translation:

birth: january 24, 1904, Bolszowce, house nr 180
taking name: january 27, 1904, Bolszowce, house nr 180
newborn: Hudie, female, illegitimate
father: Salamon Weintraub, truly Spindel, Eggs Dealer living in Dolhe,
powiat of Tlumacz
mother: Malka Neuman (illegitimate) daughter of Sissmann Teichberg and
of Serel Neuman, grain traders, living in Bolszowce
godfather or witness: Nadal (firstname as precised...) Juda Schiffman
comment: deceased july 10, 1908, as in the death register, tome I, pag
(?) 125 page* 37

Does "truly Spindel" indicate the father's mother's birth name?
Can I assume that "eggs dealer" means that he kept chickens?
Does "living in Dolhe" mean thats where he lives separate >from his
wife, or that he was both there, or that he has lived there?
Did the grandparents just deal in grain or did they likely grow it too?
Are the godfather/witnesses likely to be random strangers or relatives?

I realize that my questions are those of a beginner. Please be patient
as I learn.

Thank you!

Jeff, you are absolutely right.

Yedinetz, or Edinet was major Jewish place in Khotin uezd of Bessarabia, now

I want to point you to at least couple of Family stories in our Bessarabia

Edinet.

If you have any old photos, or written stories about your family living in

Re: 1939 Lithuania Telephone Directory #lithuania

Marlene
 

Thanks for posting access to the 1939 Lithuania telephone directory. I have
used this before and know it will be exciting and potentially very useful
for many people. I just want to mention that it is not necessarily 100%
"accurate." My great-aunt is listed in the Seduva section (also in the
1940 Directory) and she left in early 1937. Another family, who left in
1938, is also still listed. So while the information in the directory will
likely provide important information, if one is using it to establish a
"timeline" for someone, please be cautious. Seduva is not a big city,
so perhaps information >from the larger cities was updated more frequently.

I am 100% sure about my great-aunt, as my mother, who is still alive,
lived in Seduva with her, and travelled to America with her; we have
many documents confirming they were settled in the United States in 1937.
However, my great-aunt owned a pharmacy in Seduva, and while it's
possible that she still owned it for a period of time after coming to
the United States in 1937, she, personally, was not still living there.
That might explain why her name is still in the phone directory, as
the pharmacist, but it could also be that the information for the
directory wasn't actually updated in 1938 or 1939 or 1940.

So, this is just a "heads-up" for others who may find something
unexpected in terms of a timeline. All in all, the phone directory
is a tremendous asset and I thank those who have made it possible,
I just wanted to alert people to a possible time delay, as we are
all looking to find and document accurate information about our
ancestors.

Vilnius Internal Passport Records - An Update #general

Howard Margol
 

An additional 815 Vilnius internal passport records have been translated
and are now available on the Vilnius internal passport web site
https://vilniusinternalpassports19191940.shutterfly.com/

This makes a total of 11,861 internal passport records for the city of
Vilnius that have now been translated. They are available to all qualified
members of the web site. Others can view the site but cannot see the
translated records. To see the records, a $100 contribution to Litvak SIG is
required and is good as long as funds are available to translate additional
records.

To contribute, go to www.litvaksig.org/contribute Scroll down to special
projects and select internal passport records. In the Notes Block,key in
Vilnius. The site is secure so feel free to use your credit card.

18-20 months >from now, these additional 815 records will be added to the
JewishGen Lithuania and the Litvak SIG databases where they will be
available at no charge.

The Vilnius internal passport records include a lot of very valuable
information - age, maiden names, place of birth, address in Vilnius, etc. The
individual files also contain additional documents of various types. A large
percentage of those listed were not born in Vilnius but were born in other
places in Lithuania and Belarus.

The period covered is 1919-1940. Do not be mislead by the dates even if
your family left Lithuania before that. Your immediate family may have left
but, usually, siblings, uncles, aunts, cousins, etc. remained and had an
internal passport.

Also do not confuse this web site with the Vilnius District web site which
contains thousands of other types of records for the entire Vilnius
District. A separate $100.00 contribution to Litvak SIG is required to access
those records.

Dear researchers,

Here is an update for the month of March 2014 at Bessarabia SIG.
See the details at the "What's New" section of our site.

Lipkani Cemetery - at Jewish Cemeteries section
Last month a fire destroyed part of the cemetery in Lipkani, Moldova. You
can see a video at
http://www.canalregional.md/index.php/social/item/1465-cimitirul-ars
(Romanian. Chrome translation of the text provides a good understanding of
what occurred in Lipkani).
It was with help of many people a very fast emergency project was started,
and we send a person to Lipkani to Photograph all remaining graves as best
as possible. That same person has already photographed graves in Bendery
(almost 6,000 graves) and Chimishliya (400). I hope in a week or two I will
start receiving photos >from that town. Please DONATE to Lipkani cemetery
project (JewishGen.org / DONATE / Bessarabia SIG / Lipkani Cemetery
project. Thanks to several people who have donated to Lipkani project
already!!

1940 Kishinev Business directory - at Bessarabia Databases section. 1278
records were indexed. You can see them now at the Bessarabia SIG website,
and soon they will be included into JewishGen databases. Records include
Type of Business/Profession in Romanian and English. You will find dress
makers, painters, lawyers, and also Chief Rabbi of Kishinev Yehuda Leib
TSIRELSON. Project Leader: Harvey Kabaker, also translated by Paola
Khalili, and Carol Shkolnik.

Article: The Jews of Bessarabia >from the Earliest Settlement at Additional
Reading: books, articles section. Translated by Ala Gamulka. It is part of
Yizkor Book projects. Article is >from Encyclopaedia of Jewish Communities
in Romania (Volume 1). This is the LAST article >from Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities in Romania about towns, villages in Bessarabia / Moldova. There
are 35 articles on towns, villages and several general articles as this last
one. Almost all of them were translated by Ala Gamulka!!

Several of our teams are continuing working on indexing and photographing
Tiraspol Cemetery and Kishinev Doyna Cemetery. Please consider helping us
to pay for the photographs for these two projects. Thanks a lot to people
who have already donated to these important projects, but we still need your
support.

make our Bessarabia group better.

I believe the town Yedinitz is now known as Edinet in Moldova. My grandfather Herman Pinkowitz
migrated >from Yedinitz to New York City about 1906 with his parents and siblings. They had
Pinkowitz Brothers Furs in Hoboken, NJ.

Dear Stephen,

You probably know that Jednitz is town of Yedinez (Edinet) now in Moldova.
There are many different ways to write the name of that town.
We have a page at Bessarabia SIG website: Landsmanshaften, where you can
find some information about such societies, including this one. According
to the table Brooke Schreire Ganz developed information on one Edinet
society located at YIVO. Please see information with YIVO Record Group and
YIVO Box Number. That would help you to locate records.

Good luck, and let us know what did you find at YIVO.

Thank you,
