Need help finding information in Toronto, Canada

Dina Hill
 

Is there a death index in Canada that I can search?

I'm looking for Marvin H. Heller born around 1934 in Brooklyn, New  York.  My search took me to Toronto since there is no sign of him in the USA after he lived in Jacksonville, FL.  He married Jeannie P. Wong.  He had a few wives but Jeannie had a few last names: Jeannie W. Heller is also known as Jeannie P. Wong, Jeannie Pui Heller, Jeannie Pk Wong, Pui Kay Heller, and Jeannie Wong Heller.

I would appreciate the assistance.

Re: Who has access to the LDS library? (I need a microfilm)

Marion Werle
 

FamilySearch is indeed digitizing their microfilms, but as I understand it, it's an ongoing project which is not yet complete. However,  in this case, the films have been digitized (note the digital folder numbers), but must be viewed in a FamilySearch center.

Re: retrieving past messages to JewishGen SIG lists

Eva Lawrence
 

That's fine for  a short run of messages, but to search whether a topic has been covered any time in the past would involve  downloading a huge file. Is the whole archive of, say, GerSig,  messages still available on the new website, and if so, how does one access it?

Re: Who has access to the LDS library? (I need a microfilm)

Barry M Spinner
 

Possibly the author can be more specific in his request!  The "microfilm" mentioned is actually SEVEN rolls of Polish BDM records covering 5 decades.
Gmina żydowska, Międzyrzec Podlaski.  Given the timperiod,  they are likely in Russian.


Re: Jews in Cuba during WWII

Hello Esther,

The very  next issue of AVOTAYNU will carry my article on Jewish genealogical research in Cuba.  It will not give you exact names but will point you to resources that you might use to discover the information that you seek.  The issue should be arriving within two months, perhaps far less time.  Stay tuned.

Help with translating Russian / Polish documents

Hello
Having helped me get these certificates from LDS, I need their reading help.
I need the maximum details, I really hope I find a breakthrough there
for my research.
If you can help - get in touch with me first, to see that someone else
hasn't been ahead of you.

Re: LDS microfilm #poland

דוד נ.א.
 

Hello
Thank you so much to all the wonderful people who responded quickly
and wanted to help, sorry for not being able to answer one
individually.
I already got the help! The documents are in my hands. Thanks to Larry Bassist‏.

Now I will need help translating them, but I will ask for a separate email.

Note: For those who recommended me to go to the LDS library, there is
no such directory in Israel (legal issues) so I was looking for
someone who lives close to an existing directory.

My grandfather and great- grandfather #ukraine

JOE DAVIDSON <jmdavid@...>
 

My grandfather, Morris (Moishe)Davidson(Davidsohn) was born in Belaya Tzerkov, Kiev Gubernia, Ukraine on April 10, 1893. His tombstone indicates his father's name was David. There is a tombstone in the same cemetery that has a David Davidson (Davidsohn), born in 1870. This David emigrated in 1901. Morris emigrated in 1913. Is there a way I can look at a Ukranian census or other document to validate or invalidate the relationship between these two people?

Help in locating Krakowski family from Sweden

Avraham Y. Kahana
 

I am searching for a woman named Tosca Krakowski, that shows up in the following testimonial page in Yad Vashem.
The source states Tosca is a daughter of Rafael Szczuciner z'l who perished in the Holocaust. The source was compiled by jews members of the jewish community of Goteborg, Sweden. 
 
 
I am guessing Tosca may have lived in Sweden sometime. (Her Hebrew name may be Tovah (Tauba in Polish).
Rafael is my relative, and me and Tosca have never heard of each other.
I already tried Sweden Jewish Genealogy Society, Sweden State Archives and Sweden Jewish institutions (Chabad, for instance).
The only thing so far is the following record in the national archives, on a Naftali Krakowski (possibly married to a Barbara Krajnik)

If any of you can help locating her whereabouts, I would appreciate.

Re: Who has access to the LDS library? (I need a microfilm)

N. Summers
 

There is an LDS library not far from where I live. I have never been there, but I’m happy to get the documents for you. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to do it until January.
If someone else is able to do it earlier, just let me know.

Meaning of "Ish" #galicia

Carol Tannenbaum <caroltannenbaum75@...>
 

Dear Group,

I am researching my husband's family, Tennenbaum and Horowitz, from
Sokolowka (Sokolivka) / Labacz, Galicia.

An elder cousin of the Horowitz family born in Sokolivka consistently used
the prefix Ish when discussing her Horowitz family as well as previous
Horowitz generations, as in Menachem Mendel Ish Horowitz. Does anyone
know what Ish refers to, and why that designation? I know there is also a
distinguished rabbinical Horowitz family, however there is no family
tradition the rabbinical family is related. I have not been able to find the
usage of Ish anywhere. I hope someone can help solve this puzzle.

Many thanks,

Carol Tannenbaum
