Re: Alex Krakovsky Ukraine postings - Alphabetical Listing of Surnames #ukraine

Ilya

There are literally several thousand files posted by Alex Krakovsky.  Many do have such links but it is not possible nor practical to do what you are asking.  We have our hands full just keeping up with the actual records being posted by Alex K. The best way for any researcher to proceed is to first locate a file in the Alex K wiki files which is of interest.  That is why I described how to find such a link on the wiki page

I use Mozilla Thunderbird.  Below the message appear 3 options; on the left "REPLY", in the middle "LIKE", on the right "MORE".  Clicking on  "REPLY" brings up an email form at the bottom left is "REPLY TO GROUP & SENDER" .  Immediately to the right is "DISCARD".  At the far right is "PRIVATE".  Clicking on "PRIVATE" changes the "REPLY TO GROUP & SENDER" button to "REPLY TO SENDER".


Re: Tracking a passenger across the Atlantic through England

Dear Colleague Jill,
Your explanation of the various routes, ports in the UK for entering and leaving were very clear. my main interest relates to your info re your relatives from Vishtiinetz, moving (or) satying in Sweden, etc, involves similar moves on the part o my forebears from Vishtinetz, the Sudarsky family, one of which may have used the route, but stayed in Manchester, Leeds, etc. His name was Chaim Sudarsky, though he might have used Charles Cedar in England. H was a watchmaker. He and his family made several trips to the US in the period between WW1 and WW2, but I don't think I ever met them.Please let me know if you might have knowledge about them I haven't made much of an effort in  gathering information from the UK. Any suggestions will be gladly accepted.

Re: Two NYC Birth Certificates: One person or two?

Sally Bruckheimer
 

There are corrections made to official records, when needed.

"I have a perplexing find, two birth certificates, on the same day, at the same hospital, both for Harry Goldstein. Both are born 2 Jan 1904, son of Michael Goldstein. Both show the home address as 17 Ludlow. Both certs are signed off by JC Salter. Both show the father's occupation as tailor."

Two NYC Birth Certificates: One person or two?

Moishe Miller
 

Good morning,

I have a perplexing find, two birth certificates, on the same day, at the same hospital, both for Harry Goldstein. Both are born 2 Jan 1904, son of Michael Goldstein. Both show the home address as 17 Ludlow. Both certs are signed off by JC Salter. Both show the father's occupation as tailor. Both show the mother as Ida, age 36. Both show this being the 8th birth. There are a few small differences:
Cert (#968 vs #1942)
Father's age (40 vs 42)
Mother's maiden name (Goodman vs Judas)
# of living children (8 vs 9 - although how there can be more living than total is itself a contradiction)

I have attached both cert images.

I also have tried to track this Michael and Ida Goldstein, the parents of Harry, through census, draft, birth and marriage records for them and their other children. A PDF summary is attached. I can not determine if there are one or more families, like cousins or close relatives all living together. 

I am open to anyone's suggestions as to what to make of these two certs. Is it a correction? Why are the cert#'s almost 1000 digits apart (968 to 1942)? Is Ida's maiden name: Goodman, Judas, Mayer or Myers, if it is a correction?

Thank you,

Hi Jeff,

I couldn't help but notice you have some Sperber research.

I am researching the Rotenstreich family from Kolomea. One of the branches is a Sperber connection. Have you any Rotenstreich connection?

Hi Hannah,
I finally found a Reply link for you, from my  phone. When I get to the computer later I would like to send you what I know about my Sperber-Knisbacher connection including an article I recently published about it. My email is j2456@.... Please send me yours as I don't know if I will find the reply link on the computer.  Jeff, a snowbird currently in Florida.

If you use a POP client, you may not have the links.

The REPLY button is only displayed if you are currently logged in to JewishGen.

After logging in, you must re-open the message or group of messages you received from JewishGen.
If you simply re-display webpage that did not have the button, it still will not be there.
That webpage was not changed when you logged in.
If you re-open the message(s) from JewishGen after logging in, the REPLY button should be displayed under every message.
 

 The saga continues. From this cell phone, I first had no Reply button then saw a link to sign in to Jewishgen, only to be told I didn't have a password


Re: To Reply does NOT show up with my Thunderbird mail client, even though I logged into Jewishgen first

Deborah Blankenberg
 

The  reply button and accompanying reply form are on the JewishGen website, not in your (or anyone else's) mail client. When you click the message topic in the daily summary email, it takes you to the website, which is where you can read and reply to the message. I don't know how that works if you get the daily digest rather than the daily summary, but I'm guessing there should be links to the website in the digest email as well. 

I found it confusing at first, but once you get used to it, I think you'll find the new system pretty easy to use.

ViewMate Revision List in Russian - analysis

Steve Stein
 

I've posted a revision list record in Russian for which I need a syntactical analysis. It is on ViewMate at the following address ...

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM77856

 The words are known, but looking for someone familiar with how the revision list sheets were written to figure out the significance of the given names. Details are on VM entry. There is the individual, the patronymic (Zelikovich), and perhaps another stray given name which may be the patronymic of the patronymic or something else.

What is confusing is that there are others in the town with the Zelikovich patronymic standalone and the rare surname of FARFEL. Trying to verify that this individual is a brother to the others.

 Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.

 Thank you very much.
