Hi Rachel:
The Russian / Yiddish names for Yehonatan, Yehoshue, Sheina and Bentzion are as follow:
Yehonatan: In Yiddish it is Yonosn (יְהוֹנָתָן, although it is written exactly as in Hebrew the pronunciation of the name is exactly the same as the romanized version). In Russian it is written  Джонатан and the pronunciation is the same as in Hebrew.
Yehoshue: This is the romanized pronunciation of Yehoshua (יְהוֹשֻׁעַ and its Hebrew original pronunciation is Yehoshua). In Russian it is written  Иегошуа, and the pronunciation is the same as in Hebrew.
Sheina: In Yiddish, depending on the part of Eastern Europe the person had lived, the graphic formula is שעינה and in Russian it is written шайна, which is pronounced as Shainy. The German version of the name is Schoene.
Bentsiyen is a male name while Baztsiyen is a female name in the romanized Yiddish version of בתציון. There are no German versions of this Hebrew name but in Russian it is written басцпoн.

Re: the Bremen Passenger Lists
 
The Bremen Passenger Lists were destroyed, during the war, I assume. A group reconstructed the Bremen lists from the arrivals in New York. Unlike the Hamburg Passenger Lists which sometimes have different information than the New York Passenger Lists, nothing is different in the published lists.
 
One example, my ggrandmother's entry on the Hamburg list, in 1850s, had her place of birth, which led me to her records and her family. With a common name, Hirsch, I had her parents names from her death certificate as well, so I took a chance on that town which had records available. They were indeed her parents in the town where she was born. Nothing like that would happen with the reconstructed Bremen Lists.

Re: Jewish birth records from Kuty around 1905 #austria-czech #galicia #ukraine #poland

Here is an 1899 marriage record for Juda Leib HORN recte KLINGER from Kuty and Itte Leja HECHLER: http://agadd.home.net.pl/metrykalia/300/sygn.%201988/pages/PL_1_300_1988_0035.htm. Whether this is your family, I do not know, but additional information in the record might help you decide. Although Kuty marriage records from this time might not be known to survive, this record was registered in Kolomyja, where the marriage took place and where the bride was from. Found by searching JRI-Poland for surname KLINGER and town Kuty.

There are a number of ports that have departure manifests online. Check https://www.gjenvick.com/Passengers/Ports/

You can search by shipping line or port

Re: Origin of the name BIALYI #names #belarus

Very true.  There is a surname Belastotskiy, which could have been
shortened to Belyi/Bialy, but if there is no knowledge of such
shortening there is no reason to connect to the town.

The Portuguese process requires an excellent generation by generation genealogical report (with images of birth, death, marriage documents). Just having such a family tree (like that described above) won't be considered proof.

Re: Recommendations for scanning photos #photographs

Philip Trauring
 

If you want high quality scans, your only real option is a flatbed scanner. Scanner apps can be okay, and some of them conveniently scan more than one photo at once, but keep in mind when doing that you are reducing the resolution of your scans. If you're only scanning prints, then you have lots of options. If you need to scan negatives and slides, you'll either need a dedicated scanner for those, or a flatbed scanner with built-in lighting which the more expensive ones have. If only prints, I'm a fan of the Canoscan LiDE scanners, the most recent one of which is the Canonscan LiDE 400:

https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/products/details/scanners/photo-scanner/canoscan-lide-400

For scanning negatives and slides also, take a look at the line of Epson scanners:

https://epson.com/For-Home/Scanners/Photo-Scanners/c/h220

If you notice, the Epson Perfection V39 is pretty similar to the Canoscan LiDE 400. The next more expensive scanners are all much thicker, which is to make room for the top-lighting for negatives and slides. The more expensive you go in their scanners the more resolution and dynamic range you'll get, although I think those are diminishing returns in most cases.

Also worth considering is the scanning software you use. I've used the same software with many scanners over the years and it's been great. It's called VueScan (https://www.hamrick.com/) and it's worth paying for the professional version. In addition to having a consistent interface to many scanners, it also supports older scanners that the manufacturers don't even support anymore, so it will increase the amount of time your scanner will work.

It helps to figure out what the best settings are to use for the photos you are scanning. These setting will differ based on whether the photos are color or B&W, how big the photos are, etc. The most important setting I can emphasize is that you should scan to TIFF format and not JPEG. JPEG is by definition a lossy compressed format, and will never retain the details of a TIFF file. TIFF also has compression, but it is not lossy, so will retain details better.

Hi Julia
Bingo! The 1848 Balassa records are in your link at pages 83-96, https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CS6Z-GQSS-F?i=82&cat=636994
Very many thanks! It's great to have access to it, although it will take some studying to find any names I recognise, and the first few pages are not very legible. But fingers crossed I find something!!
Many thanks again

Re: Train travel Ukraine 19th-20th Century/ #ukraine

Carole Shaw
 

I believe someone recently enquired about train travel to Lemberg (present Lviv) from Czernowitz (present Chernivtsi) or between other parts of Ukraine in pre WW1 days to elucidate the journey their forebears might have undertaken to reach the UK/US.

 

Both these town are now in Ukraine but previously in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The line between these 2 town was constructed in 1866 and other lines followed to the rest of the Ukraine in subsequent years.  Further information can be found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lviv_Railways

 

Last year I was planning a rail trip from SW Ukraine to Lviv.  The journey from Chernivtsi to Lviv takes 4-6 hours.

Re: Ballasagyarmat: what census records are there? #hungary

Hi Julia
I've looked at the references from Judy above (1729913, 34 and 35) and your link (7995363), but I couldn't see Balassa in the first 3 Nograd docs, only lots of other towns. Your link is for an earlier 1845/6 tax record, do you know if there would have been a separate one for 1848 that would have, say, grouped families together like you see on the 1848 transcribed records within this site. I think that might be the one that would yield the most information.
Many thanks
Emma

I just saw your name and wonder if you could be a missing cousin. Was Tillie Zilber an ancestor? Or one of her sons Jake or Meyer?


Re: "adoption" to avoid the czar's army #general #lithuania

 

My mother told me her mother's father was adopted by another family that didn't have a son, and it was a common custom. I've wondered if that's why her and one brother's birth certificate give their mother's birth name as Berger and the birth certificate of the four other children give her name as Lipinski.

Re: Emigration Routes to London UK 1890s #courland #latvia #russia #poland #general

 

This is from the report of a couple leaving from Kozelets in Chernigi=ov in Ukraine: They went to Hamburg where they boarded the Sprite on May 24, 1890, which took them to Hull, on the east coast of England. They took a train across England to Liverpool where they boarded the City of Chicago, which arrived in New York on June 9. I have no idea how common a route that might have been.
