Hi there,
thought of sharing with you a site I found by accident, minutes ago:
http://www.wwii-photos-maps.com

It contains maps and photos made/taken by Germans and Russians.
Many maps seem to be detailed.

Ship travel #general

Lande
 

I have noted that there is considerable interest in ship manifests and
wonder whether researchers are aware that the International Tracing Service
files contain a large number of postwar manifest lists--unfortunately, none
prewar. The focus is on postwar transports of survivors/refugees.

You can search to see if any list is of interest by going to the ITS
Inventar/inventory at http://resources.ushmm.org/itsinventory/home.php
Simply type in the name of the city >from which/to which the transport went,
e.g. Cape Town or Genoa in English or German. This also lists special
flights of refugees.

If you find a transport of interest you will need to write to Arolsen, Yad
Vashem or the USHMM to ask whether a person(s) of interest appears and/or
ask for the entire list. Or come to the IAJGS Washington meeting and help
yourself.

Viewmate interpretation of 1900 census "native tongue" #general

lthorpe883@...
 

Hi All-

I have posted a portion of the 1900 census for Isadore ROTHSTEIN and
family. It is clear to me that Isadore's native tongue was Yiddish.

However I can not interpret the native tongue of his wife Elizabeth or
her mother, Clara BROTT.

This record can be found at

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=18848

Thanks in advance for your help.

Researching Harshfield #latvia

Steve&MK <sgharsh@...>
 

I need some help. I have been only able to find my Grandfather's family
in the USA and England, but nothing else. What I have found is the
following:

Jacob (Yacov) Harshfield Born Riga, Latvia 1846 per 1911 UK Census
Married (approximately 1876) Mary Levy (per Son Samuel's Death
Certificate) Born Riga, Latvia 1861 per UK 1911 Census.

According to the 1911 UK Census there were 10 children, 5 alive at the
time of the census and 5 deceased.

Of the 5 living children at the time were my Grandfather Samuel Henry
(born Riga 4/22/1881); Annie (born Riga 1892); Fanny (born Riga 1894);
Abey (born Riga 1896 and another child still unidentified.

They all immigrated to England and at least my grandfather subsequently
brought the family to the USA in 1922/23.

Jacob, my great grandfather died in Mile End Old Town (London) in 1915
and is buried there. However, I have no idea what happened to my
greatgrandmother or my grandfather's siblings.

I will be spending a day in Riga in the later part of July and will try
to do some research while there but have no idea where to even start.

Any help and or suggestions would be appreciated. I can be e-mailed
direct at sgharsh@aol.com

Thanks,

I am searching for the birth Joseph & David Wallisch who I believe were born
sometime in the mid 1800's probably in Znojmo. Are these records available?

conscription in Poland? #general

apollo <apollo@...>
 

According to his official birth certificate, my great-uncle was born in
Lodz, Poland, in 1921. However, he claims that this should actually be 1925
and that the Polish clerks regularly "made boys look older than they really
were so they could draft them into the army". The birth certificate not only
says he was born in 1921, but the document itself is dated 1921, and I am
wondering whether a clerk could have forged the registration date as well as
the birth date. Clearly, whether he was born in 1921 or in 1925, my
great-uncle is no spring chicken, but is there anything in what he said
about making boys seem older in order to draft them? Also, can anyone tell
me if Poland had compulsory military service in the 1920's/30's? If so, what
were the conditions? (Were Jews drafted? For how long? >from what age? etc.)

Thanks,
Miriam Bulwar David-Hay,
Ra'anana, Israel.

Port of Entry - USA #general

Israel P
 

from time to time, people express their frustrations at not finding entries to
the United States at any of the expected ports or crossing points.

I just had my first experience with passengers arriving at Providence. Sailing
was >from Jaffa in 1929. I don't recall any discussion of this possibility
before, but even if there was, it may be useful to mention it again.
