Tom Klein raised the question that the Jewish records >from dolny kubin, in slovakia were no longer available
and he was looking on-line for them- the Christian records were available, and questioned where they were.

I contacted Kahlile Mehr >from FamilySearch and the IAJGS board--he is in Russia right now but he saw my
e-mail and this is what he said:

The problem we are having is that if there is a date on a film beyond the cut-off year of 100 years, then the
whole film is not posted. There is no discrimination with regard to the religion of the images. Our engineers
are supposed to fix this problem and provide restrictions on the image level. When that it done, more
images will be posted.

Need help finding passenger manifest, please! #general

Fran Segall
 

I have been searching for my great-grandmother's passenger manifest forever,
it seems. It's time to ask for help. I have searched every combination I can
think of.

Her name was Chana/Hannah/Anna STRICK.
She **definitely** arrived sometime between 1888 and 1909, but census info
points strongly to 1902.
She was in her 60's and widowed when she emigrated >from Wielopole
Skrzynskie, Poland.
Her entire family (8 children) were all in New York and came through Ellis
Island. I have no reason to believe she didn't do the same. She lived in New
York for the rest of her life.
She died before Social Security came into being and never applied for
citizenship.

I'm at a loss. If anybody has any ideas, I'd be most grateful!

2012 IAJGS Conference Report 1 - In Paris - Getting Ready #germany

Jeanette R Rosenberg OBE
 

Hello GerSiggers

This email comes to you >from Paris, France, where it feels like the
rain will never stop.

I arrived here in Paris on Thursday afternoon and since then, it has
been good to catch up with friends old and new, as all the conference
participants assemble here in the hotel.

As I type this email, the Bastille Day celebrations are showing on TV
in front of me, and there are, so we are told, to be fireworks this
evening, near the Eiffel Tower, assuming the weather holds. The rain
has stopped, at least for the past 30 minutes or so, and the sun is
trying to shine through. I hope it stays dry for later!

This afternoon, conference registration opens and then, tomorrow, the
conference proper begins.

Of course just because we haven't officially started, doesn't mean
that there is no genealogy happening - indeed the hotel lobby is
invariably filled with genealogy cousins hugging genealogy cousins
and mini family reunions, at all hours of the day, (and often quite
late into the night!)

GerSig members are arriving thick and fast now, and we think that
there will probably be about 50 or so of us in our meetings, but more
of that another time. I'll write more later, after registration
opens, with a description of the conference pack and papers, and the
forward plan of sessions of GerSig interest.

Dear JewishGenners:
I have received a number of very helpful replies to my post and have
replied individually.

I would like particularly to thank Eden Joachim and David Crook who, with
the help of the JewishGen and LitvakSIG Given Names Database, led me to
understand this family member (whose English name was Nathan) likely had
the Yiddish name of "Noteh or Nuta", reflected as stated below on the
tombstone. Both correspond with an English language nickname of Nate.
My thanks to all my colleagues in family history.
Sincerely,
Dan Oren

A recent ViewMate posting of a tombstone with the name of "Natan Nate"
(Hebrew letters nun-taf-nunsofit nun-tet-ayin) raises the question for me
of the name nun-tet-ayin.

Is this typically meant as a nickname "Nate", an alternative to the formal name
of Natan or Nathan.
Or is this properly meant as a second given name, "Nateh", perhaps?

This combination appears on a tombstone as well for a different relative in my
extended family.

Excuse me for hitchhiking on Gilbert search with a question about given
names in families.

For instance the male line: Yechiel Michael (1756-1781) -> Benjamin Zev
(wolf) (?-1800) -> Yechiel Mechel ...(and there my info stops)
(Their last name may be RABINOWITZ ). Their given names seems an echo
from centuries earlier in the HEILPRIN family. Does this mean they are
connected? Or just coincidence?

Hi All,

In trying to decipher a copy of an old English death certificate I received
the other day, I came across this very helpful site,
<http://www.thornber.net/medicine/html/medgloss.html>.

I eventually decided my certificate said "Inanition" and "Asthenia".
"Inanition" was a new term to me. I hope you find this site helpful.
