Lithuania Internal Passport Records #general

Howard Margol
 

4,738 Lithuania internal passport records have been added to the JewishGen
Lithuania and Litvak SIG searchable databases.

To search the JG Lithuania database, go to
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Lithuania/

To search the Litvak SIG All Lithuania database (ALD) go to
http://www.litvaksig.org/component/litvaksearch/?view=ald

I suggest you search both databases to make sure you have covered all
bases. Even if you have searched before, search again since additional records
have been added.

Do not be fooled by the fact the internal passport records are for
1919-1940, if your ancestors left Lithuania prior to 1919. Your immediate
ancestors may have left but not everyone left - siblings, uncles, aunts, cousins,
etc. generally remained.

[Jamaica, West Indies} Jamaican Family Search Website Now Has Free Access #sephardic

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Jamaican Family Search website, which is authored by an individual not a
corporation now has free access. It is a virtual genealogy library for those
researching family history for Jamaica, West Indies, especially for people
born before 1920. One of the types of records that are included are
Portuguese Jews who were left by the Spanish-see the history of Jamaica on
the website. Records also include nineteenth century Jamaica Almanacs (which
list property owners and civil and military officials. Other types of
records include: directories, immigration records, lists of landholders and
more. The site contains approximately 296,000 names of people who lived in
Jamaica at some time-certainly not all who ever lived in Jamaica >from the
arrival of the English in 1655 as that number would be in the millions. I
put in the Jewish sounding name "Cohen" in the search box and 245 "hits"
returned. Similarly other Jewish sounding names such as Aarons, Lopes and
Silva also returned "hits" To search go to:

further question regarding Yiddish translations #latvia

Diane Sophrin
 

Hello all,
Regarding a recently reposted Yiddish text - several kind people have
offered very helpful translations either on ViewMate, or directly to my
e-mail. We've been having an interesting little conversation
independently, on one matter - that of a name mentioned in the text.

I'd like to ask a question to all of you who have already responded and
to anyone else who might be able to help - there seems to be a puzzle
about this name - My cousin in Warsaw says the person was definitely
named Bierzwinksi, while everyone who has translated the written text
consistantly reads it as Wierzbinski (or something very close to that).
Is it possible that this seeming contradiction has something to do with
how the Beyz and Veyz have been written? After all, they are the same
letter except for the horizontal line above on the Veyz. (Excuse me for
not knowing the correct term for that mark).

Here is the notification when I re-posted:
...a re-posted text in Yiddish. I'm looking for any further possible
clarification regarding the identity of those mentioned as being in the
photo versus the writer himself. This Yiddish text is ViewMate 30034 and
can be found at the following link:

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application. I find

List of Danish Jews who escaped to Sweden #scandinavia

Ruth Chernia <rchernia@...>
 

Hello All,

I'm trying to solve a family mystery. I have heard stories >from my
family (uncles, cousins) detailing how each branch made it to safety
in Sweden in fishing boats 70 years ago. However, my father never
told me his story. And so, I'm wondering if there is a list somewhere
of those who made it to Sweden, telling when they arrived.

My son and his father's 4th cousin are 4 markers off out of 67.

I have just received the results back of a YDNA 67 marker test for a
member of my FENICHEL project. This newest member and an existing
member share a common ancestor. For the newer member, the link is
five generations back and the older member it is four generations
back. My concern is that there is one mismatch (DYS 456).
Is that likely considering the common ancestor? Or is it more likely
that I have erred in my research?

Re: re Robert Rozett #hungary

Judy,
the book you talk about is Imre Rakos's and Gabor Vero's Munkaszolgalat a
Don-kanyarban?
That book is specially precious to Hungarian speaking readers as it has
memoirs of two famous Hungarian writers, both survivors of the labor service
in the Don bend, Zoltan Zelk and Bela Zsolt.
