Hi
I'm hoping there is someone who can help with this puzzle.

I am trying to find the roots of my husband's mother's family who came >from
Polotsk, Vitebsk Gubernia, which is in Belarus today but archives are held
by Latvia. The family name is PIATOFF, and this is what I have found and
what we know.

IMMIGRATIONS RECORDS
My husband's great-grandfather, Abel PJATOW (spelled in the US as PIATOFF,
was 65 and widowed when he came to the US in 1910 with his "daughter"
Hinde/Ginde, age 21. We don't know of a daughter named Hinde so it may have
been a neice or other family member he was escorting.

BURIAL RECORDS: According to family history, Abel was married to Rose
HINDESS,daughter of Zorach Hindess and Hinda Cohen. In searching the
cemetery databases, I have not been able to find a record of his burial or
her which was probably in the 1920's or so in the US.

MARRIAGE RECORDS:
My husband's grandmother, listed as Cora but actually Celia, daughter of
Abel, married Barnett BEYTIN in 1909 in Kings County, Brooklyn. They were
cousins, so Barnett's mother was also a PIATOFF by birth.

CENSUS RECORDS:
Abraham PIATOFF, the brother of Celia Piatoff, came to the US in 1907. In
1910, he was living in Queens with his wife and neice Pauline. In 1920,
they are no longer listed but Pauline was then listed as a border with
Mary (Mariasha Piatoff) RICE, her aunt, and family in Brooklyn.

Thank you for any ideas or assistance you may have. Please resond privately

Proper Name, Luber #general

A cousin has recently located the 1913 Manhattan birth certificate for my
great-grand aunt, Anne (Rosenberg) Ward z"l. The family, even her son, has
known her as Anne, but her birth certificate lists her name as "Luber". Is
Luber Yiddish? Does it have any meaning/derivations?

ViewMate translation request - German, Image #19439 (Hanne ADLER, ship manifest) #general

Karen Hirsch
 

I've posted a vital record (ship manifest >from the ship Deutschland,
departing Hamburg, 25 August 1900) in German for which I need a few
loose translations.

My g-grandmother, Hanne ADLER (>from Kisvárda, Hungary), immigrated to the
US on this ship. She is the second to last entry in the image. I would like
a loose translation of the headers for columns 8 and 9, as well as the
entries in those columns for Hanne ADLER. The entry in column 9 seems to be
a "ditto" to the entry above, but I cannot read/translate it. You will
likely need to open the scan in a separate window in order to see it at a
large enough size.

The image is on ViewMate at the following address:

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Fw: L Goldman and R Goldman #unitedkingdom

From: Janet Grosso <cleveleys28@yahoo.com>
Subject: L Goldman and R Goldman
To: "Jewish" <jcr-uk@lyris.jewishgen.org>
Date: Monday, July 4, 2011, 7:37 AM
My name is Janet Grosso (nee
Goldman). I am doing research into the Goldman
family. I have basic information (birth certificate)
regarding my paternal grandfather (Louis Goldman) but am
having difficulty locating information regarding any
siblings he may have had. My great-grandfather, Abraham
Goldman, died in the Hackney Infirmary on 14 December 1905.
His next of kin was listed, in the hospital records, as his
daughter Rose (no surname) who resided at 41 King Henry
Street, Wordsworth Road, Stoke Newington. The
informant on his death certificate is listed as his
daughter, L Goldman, residing at 53 Princess May Road, Stoke
Newington. I have been unable to locate either of
these individuals through the census. Prior to his death
Abraham resided at 23 Castle Street, Kingsland.
According to the hospital records, Abraham was a
widower. His wife's name was Sarah, formerly Friedman,
about whom I have not been able to find any information.

I would be grateful for any information regarding these
individuals.

Thank you.

Resource Center at The 31st IAJGS International Conference #belarus

bounce-2250616-772948@...
 

Don't Pass Up the Resource Center at The Conference!

This year’s Resource Center is a real benefit to researchers, and definitely
should not be overlooked. It's a valuable place to spend time studying maps
for ancestral towns, reviewing computerized surname indexes, and searching
through a wide variety of databases to fill in gaps in your research. It's a
"problem worth having" because it's virtually guaranteed to compete with
your equally strong desire to attend Conference sessions, network, see
Judaic films, visit vendors, etc. (You also will be able to avoid going
outside into the August heat of Washington by conducting your research in
the comfort of the Grand Hyatt, and still be close to other Conference
features you want to catch!)

The Resource Center also will be a lively, "happening" place to be because
virtually EVERY Conference attendee will visit the Resource Center! How can
you pass that up? (And when you do come by, we suggest you bring a listing
of your "research goals," the specific surnames, towns, or dates you’re
researching so that you can spend your time more wisely.)

Where’s what this year's Resource Center consists of:
- Carefully selected reference materials, specialized archival
materials, and maps (laminated and available on long tables) >from the
hosting organization, the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington
(JGSGW)’s extensive library collection;
- 5 PC computers dedicated to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum
(USHMM) Central Names Index (CNI). That index will help inform attendees'
Holocaust-era research and be a major aid when conducting research at the
Museum itself; and
- 35 additional PCs loaded with links to websites usually
accessible only through subscription or membership.
- Translation Services located in an adjacent room, with a free
20-minute appointment for conference attendees who sign up at the
Conference, its schedule to be posted.

The Resource Center will be open during these days and hours:
Sunday, August 14, >from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Monday, August 15, >from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday, August 16, >from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Wednesday, August 17, >from 7:30 a.m.- 9 p.m.
Thursday, August 18, >from 7:30 a.m.– 5:30 p.m.
Friday, August 19, >from 7:30 a.m. – 11 a.m.

We'll have a large number of links available to both free and subscription
(free at the Conference) genealogy-related websites. These will be on the
Resource Center's 35 computers, and be available for all SIX DAYS of
the Conference.
