Re: finding enumeration districts: NY #general

A great resource is Steve Morse's page at stevemorse.org. On this web
site, he has a Unified Census ED finder:
http://stevemorse.org/census/unified.html. You can use that to put in
addresses and find the EDs. While it doesn't have the EDs for the
5-years, I would imagine if you found the EDs for 1910, 1920, and 1930
they would also work for 5s.

If you have a paid subscription to Ancestry.com, you can search the New
York censuses for those years >from your home.

Good luck!

Article on Jewish DNA testing #general

An article on Jewish DNA testing and how it led to me meeting a long
lost "cousin" was just featured in the Louisville Courier-Journal
newspaper. Interesting for those contemplating taking this next step in
genealogical research. Here is the link:

Find people in Brooklyn in 1940's #germany

Hanna Grossman <hannakg@...>
 

I am tracking a family of cousins Gustav COHEN b. 1877, NY and his wife
Berta ESSINGER b. 1879 Brooklyn and their sons.

Gus and Berta are in 1940 census at 763 Eastern Parkway, don't show in
IGG death index. Their son Irmin or Irwin E. b. 1908 in Brooklyn may be
listed in SSDI in 9/1977. No marriage for him found in any NY boro
(i.e. the Irwin marriages listed are not he)

Their son Arnold (or Bertram) b. 1912/1914 was living with parents in
1940, and entered Army in 1942, single. I see no record of marriage or
death for him.

The 1930 census says Gustav veteran of Spanish American war; how can I
use that to find his death? Any other ideas?

Surnames #ukraine

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Hi all - I've been doing research on my Ukrainian ancestors, and I only
recently become aware that the surnames that they used in the Ukraine,
where also surnames that were used by non-Jews. I discovered this, when I
found matches for those surnames, in familysearch.org, in a databse of a
Ukrainian Church Book (1840-1845). Was this common? How did Ukrainian
Jews get their surnames?

Also, my relatives came >from Uman and Talne. Are there any good
books/bios, about what life was like for Jews in the Ukraine, in the late
1880s? Thanks.

I have read on Facebook with sadness that Christine Usdin has passed away.
Christine performed many mitzvahs by translating thousands of records
from Cyrillic and thereby reconnecting so many of us with our roots.
RIP Christine.

Klepper burials in Iasi #romania

Michael Moritz
 

Dear Klepper researchers,

I have taken the time to go through the JOWBR database and compile all
the burials of Kleppers (and all variants [Klapper, Cleper, etc]) in
Iasi listed in the database. There are 71 people, with dates of death
from 1883-1969. I have included all the material shown in the JOWBR
database and have put this into a neatly organized excel file, which I
would gladly send to anyone interested in the material. If so, please
contact me directly. Thanks.

I recently posted to this listserve about CA SB 71 which would amend the

to pay the local agency for producing the records:

I have many family members buried at the Zentralfriedhof in Vienna.

Some should be replaced and other need some attention. Of those who

Announcing Schedule for Linking Lublin PSA Images to JRI-Poland Index #general

RobinnM@...
 

JRI-Poland is pleased to announce the schedule for the posting
of digital images of Jewish vital records online >from the holdings
of the Lublin branch of the Polish State Archives.

The Lublin branch holds the registers for the most towns with Jewish
records in Poland. It was the first to acquire sophisticated digitizing
equipment in 2005 and has been steadily scanning its holdings ever
since. We are most indebted to Director Piotr Dymmel and the staff
of the Lublin branch for this significant achievement.

End of June 2013: 48 towns (Annopol to Lubartow, not including Lublin)
Oct. 2013: 36 towns (Lukow to Zolkiewka)
Dec. 2013: City of Lublin

As JRI-Poland previously announced:

Over the next 4 to 5 years, the Polish State Archives will digitize
all vital records (Jewish and non-Jewish) and make them available
on the PSA National Digital Archives (NDA) or Regional
Archive website. There will be no charge for directly accessing
actual records of your ancestors and family.

Linking JRI-Poland search results to digital images.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
When the JRI-Poland search results have been linked to the
record images it will be possible for researchers to click on
the image icon associated with the record and immediately
view the actual record for his/her ancestors.

But...there are more than 300,000 record entries to be linked
to digital images so there is much work to be done first.

Researchers with an interest in this project are invited to join
the JRI-Poland Lublin Archives "linking team." You do not
need to be able to read Polish or Russian. The only experience
needed is a familiarity with Excel along with a desire to
contribute your efforts to this important task.

To volunteer, please contact Robinn Magid at RobinnM@aol.com
