Re: Finding US naturalization records which aren't in the National Archives, from 1920s #general

Herbert Lazerow
 

U.S. naturalizations could be then (and can be now) done by any court, federal or
state. Naturalizations were frequently done in both federal and state courts
through the 1920s. By the end of the 1920s in most urban areas, naturalizations
had been concentrated in the United States District Courts. If you are unable to
find the naturalization papers in the Federal Archives, it is likely that the
naturalization papers were filed in a North Carolina state court. In that case,
you would need to seek the document >from the court itself (and there may be more
than one with jurisdiction over the city) or a North Carolina state archive to
which the records of that court were sent.

Holocaust Memorials & Monuments #general

Julian H. Preisler
 

Dear Jewish Gen List Members:

I am working on a project to identify and document Holocaust memorials, monuments,
gardens and museum in North America. So far I have identified 203 such memorials,
etc. in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean. I am hoping to
put all of the research and photographs into an eBook. I would like to hear >from
you all in order to expand my list and also obtain images. If you know of a
Holocaust memorial in your community please get in touch with me. If you are able
to take photographs that would be great too. I have most of the larger memorials
researched, but need photographs and also would like to indetify smaller memorials
that are located at synagogues and in Jewish cemeteries. My parents are Holocaust
Survivors as were my grandparents and this research is a tribute to them. I look
forward to hearing >from you. Thanks to everyone and have a great weekend and
Shabbat Shalom.

ROM-SIG needs translators #romania

Bob Wascou
 

ROM-SIG needs translators for our different projects.

We need people who can translate Romanian, Cyrillic Romanian, German,
Old German script or Latin to work on translating, birth, marriage or
death records especially >from Harlau, Iasi, Radauti, Suceava and other
towns in Romania.

If you are able to help us translate a language please fill out the
form at http://tinyurl.com/vol-transcriber .

We would like to translate as many records as possible as soon as
possible so that we can place them in the JewishGen Romania Database
in May or June.

Additional money is also needed to get more records >from the Iasi
archives. We presently have marriages >from 1866 to 1905 and births
from 1891 to 1908. We want to get the births >from 1866 to 1890 and the
death records >from 1866 to 1908. Please donate to the Iasi Records
Project at:

Yizkor Book Project, January 2013 #romania

bounce-2555218-772976@...
 

Shalom,

With the first month of 2013 passed (where did it evaporate to? <g>), I have
an optimistic feeling that the Yizkor Book Project can look forward to a
great deal of activity over this year and beyond.

First signs of this, apart >from a respectable quantity of new books, new
entries and updates in January, is the fact that three new Translation Funds
were set up last month and more are brewing. The projects that were added in
January:

- Akkerman (Bilhorod-Dnistrovs'kyy), Ukraine Yizkor Book
- Klobuck, Poland Yizkor Book
- Wyszkow, Poland Yizkor Book

These join the 60 odd Translation Funds currently running. These funds have
been set up to allow those people interested in seeing Yizkor Books
translated, to help out with donations going towards the professional
translation of these books. The Yizkor Books do contain a wealth of
information about the communities and people that were wiped >from the face
of the earth during the Holocaust and making this information freely
available in English and other languages is what the Yizkor Book Project is
all about.

If you feel able to contribute something towards this lofty goal, please go
to the following page to see the list of Translation Fund projects.
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
Note that for those of you who are US citizens, donations to these funds are
also tax-deductible.

A further encouraging sign is the fact that the Yizkor-Books-In-Print
project is celebrating having sold its 500th book since starting publication
in April 2012. In the past month alone, 82 books have been sold which is
very promising news. Also this month the translation of the Dzialoszyce
Memorial Book was issued and there are ten more books currently in the
works. If you would like to know more about this project, please go to
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html

Finally, I am encouraged by the fact that several books are rapidly
approaching that sort-after goal of being completed translated. Hopefully,
in the months to come I will be able to announce the completion of quite a
number of books.

Now to facts and figures for January, during this last month we have added
these 4 new projects:

- Pustkow, Poland (Pustkow - The Almost Forgotten Death Camp)

Please remember that all this month's additions and updates have been
flagged at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html to make it easy
to find them. Also remember that if you have queries, questions or whims
about anything regarding the Yizkor Book Project, I'd be more than happy to

Re: Town identification assistance requested #general

ewolfson
 

Mr. Miller was searching for someone who had lived in Chicago and Los Angeles, a
"Mike GORE ... >from Ruchane Kovna Russia." I wrote to Mr. Jeff Miller privately,
but for the sake of those others who are interested, after reviewing the
naturalization record for Mike Gore, I suspect the town was Raseiniai, in Kaunas
(Kovno Gubernia), and that the family name was GOR. JewishGen has several
databases where one can do a soundex search on the name of the town. Here, it
helped because I was somewhat familiar with this town. Area SIGs (Special Interest
Groups) can also be a big help in identifying a potential town when one knows the
more general area in which it would likely be situated.

The name Emil and possible Hebrew names #galicia

Madeleine Isenberg
 

Ruth,

In my database with Jews in the Spis region of Slovakia, Emils were
often, Mendel, Menachem, or a combination of Menachem Mendel.

I even saw a female version of Emilie with the name of Mindel.

Hope that helps.

Regards,

Madeleine Isenberg

Researching:
GOLDMAN in parts of Galicia such as: Nowy Targ, Wachsmund,
possibly Krakow, Poland, who migrated into Kezmarok or Nagy
Eor/Nehre/Straszky, both now in Slovakia. Also STEINER, LANGER,
GLUECKSMAN, who married into the GOLDMAN family, and also
lived in Slovakia. GOLDSTEIN in Abaujszina (Sena), and Kosice,
Slovakia; Tolcswa, Hungary; Temeswar (very briefly!), Romania

Palmistry #galicia

Caroline Curvan <Caroline.Curvan@...>
 

My grandfather Josef Zinker left Lemberg for the US in 1922. Within 10
years he'd embarked on a career as a "hand analyst" or palm reader.
Under the name Josef Ranald, he wrote many books, gave lectures, and
wrote and appeared in several films (both shorts and feature length) on
this subject.

I am trying to figure out where this interest in palmistry came from. I
understand that it was not an uncommon subject in eastern Europe at
the time. Might anyone in this group have any insights at all?

Many thanks,

Caroline Ranald Curvan

ViewMate 11405 - Request for Identification #galicia

Joyce Eastman
 

I am reposting a portrait of my paternal grandparents' family taken in
Vienna, Austria cerca early 1930's: My grandparents: Sime Bruche
WILDER (Helfer), Salomon Wolf WILDER, and their children: Itamar and
Rebecca/Regina WILDER, as well as two women on the left side of the
family portrait whom I am seeking to identify. I believe that these two
women might possibly be mother and daughter - and possibly related
to my grandmother. My grandfather died at age 54 >from tuberculosis,
and therefore looks much older than his years. I believe that this
family portrait was probably taken shortly before his death in 1934.

The picture is posted on JewishGen as ViewMate #11405. Any
assistance you can offer to identify these two women would be most
appreciated. Please respond privately.

Do you have a genealogical trip planned to Hungary this year? If so, I =

early July, usually on Sundays. If there is not one taking place in your =
ancestral town, there is certain to be one in a town nearby. After all, =
more than half a million Hungarian Jews were murdered in the final days =
of World War II.

Just by being present and keeping an attentive ear and mind, you are =
certain to discover things about your family history which are not =
available on the internet or in archives. Many people attend the =
ceremonies who no longer live in the town but return to express their =
respect for the victims who usually have no graves. The support that the =
presence of visitors >from overseas demonstrates at a time of widely =
documented anti-semitism in Hungary is immeasurable.=20

I have gone to a number of these events,and just by talking to people =
