Hi,

in the New York Passenger List he is Simon HIRSCHFIELD, born 1842, on
board of vessel Saxonia, arrived NYC on July, 9th,1866.

At Ancestry Hamburg Passenger List the town really looks like Rutschous:

Perhaps one has a better idea...

1866 is not indexed, so you won´t get a result by research ("paging...")

Hello everybody,
I wonder why there is no jewish databases for Russia in its current borders.
Has anyone got a clue about this lack ?
Some people of my family were >from Kaliningrad oblast and others went to St
Peterburg at the very end of the 19th century. I can not find anything about
them...
regards
Anne

There are a couple of simple answers. First of all, few Jews lived outside
the pale prior to the last years of the 19th century. Records from
Kaliningrad may be in the Lithuanian archives, I am not sure. Few records
from St. Petersburg will be available in any event because of Russia's 100
year privacy rules. The Mormons have done little to no filming in Russia,
and the Russian archives have not digitized or made available large
quantities of records. You might contact the Russian State Archives and see
if they can do a search for you. Check with Litvak SIG regarding
Kaliningrad (Koenigsberg). The only other option would be to identify a
researcher in each of those places and engage that person to help you find
what you are looking for.

H-SIG and Hungarian resources #hungary

Hello Friends -

At the moment, I actually don't have a question for the group, but I have to share
something with you. I have recently been trying to search genealogical information
for another part of the world, and it is atrocious..... limited and missing
resources, websites and e-mails closed, no answers, etc..... absolutely frustrating
. I had assumed that H-SIG was standard, as that was the only experience I had.
Let me tell you that our H-SIG and the affiliated Hungarian connections are FANTASTIC,
far superior to many other organizations.

If you have not already made a contribution in some way to H-SIG, please allow me
the liberty of encouraging you to do so. Anyone who has been "elsewhere" in the
genealogical realm, you truly understand what a gem we have here. I have a new
appreciation and respect for the hard workers here.

Moderator: Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts, Michele. We are all H-SIG and
without your contributions it would have been impossible to grow the Hungary database
and to provide continuing assistance to those looking for their roots in pre-Trianon
Hungary. If you can contribute time to our indexing projects please contact H-SIG

JGSLA - Researching US Immigration & Naturalization with Hal Bookbinder #general

Pamela Weisberger
 

Southern Californians are invited to the Jewish Genealogical Society
of Los Angeles's next South Bay program:

"Researching U.S. Immigration and Naturalization" with Hal Bookbinder

Monday, April 29 at 7:30 PM

Toyota USA Auto Museum
19600 Van Ness Ave.
Torrance, CA 90501

One of the first things that the newly created United States of
America did was to establish laws covering naturalization. These laws,
however, were administered by the states with many variations.
Finally, in 1906 the Federal Government took control of the entire
process. The standardized documentation after 1906 has proven
invaluable to genealogical researchers. Similarly, laws controlling
immigration have also changed over time, generally becoming more
restrictive. As immigration and naturalization documentation can be
key information in tracing one's roots, understanding how the process
worked over time, understanding how the information was recorded and
where it might be found is essential. This lecture will provide a
short history of immigration and naturalization laws and provide
general guidance in finding your ancestor's documentation.

Hal Bookbinder has been researching for 28 years, identifying 4,000
relatives and tracing two of these lines into the mid 1700s. A former
president of JGSLA and IAJGS, he created and continues to edit the
annual Jewish Genealogical Yearbook. Hal has spoken at numerous
conferences, synagogues and society meetings on topics >from computing
to geography to brick walls.

The JGSLA traveling library will be available starting at 7:00PM.
JGSLA members free, guests $5.00.

Thanks to the many JRI-PL list participants who responded, privately
and publicly, to my request for information about the likely time for
fulfillment of a request to receive emailed copies of Polish BMD
records >from the good people at www.familysearch.org (the LDS Family
History Library). I am writing to give feedback about what I have
learned.

Most of you had better experiences than I have had (original request
February 9; case ID issued after a followup inquiry in mid-March;
nothing received yet), though at least one of you had an even worse
experience. Several of you took the opportunity to praise the FHL for
their no-charge provision of records (a sentiment I will happily echo
when my request is fulfilled, one of these days). The strangest
response was >from someone who worried that my inquiry might lead the
FHL to cut off the free service (!) and lectured me pompously about
how I shouldn't be critical of their service no matter how slow and
inadequate it was.

Today I broke down and called. My call was answered promptly and
courteously by a woman who identified herself as Sister Barton.
Sister Barton was not able to answer my question ("What is a
reasonable expectation for the time frame for me to receive records?")
but promised me that she would pass the question along to someone who
could and would. Within an hour I got an email which apologized, told
me that as of last week there were still 900 cases ahead of mine
(though my case would be handled eventually), and suggested that it
would probably still be faster for me to order microfilms, have them
sent to the nearest LDS Family History Center, and photocopy them
myself in the time-honored way.

By their truly generous offer to email records for free, the Family
History Library may have created a demand which they are unable to
satisfy. I can't say whether or not my experience was due primarily
to my having requested Polish records, with other record requests
fulfilled in a more timely fashion.
