Re: out going passenger list Phil. to Palestine

Barbara Zimmer
 

Do you mean he left from Philadelphia about 1900?
When you say you have a photo of him at the port of LA — what port are you referring to? Los Angeles?

My great great grandfather left Phil, I think and went to live in Israel around a couple of years after 1900. I have a pic of him in LA maybe 1930. Are there any lists of people traveling to Israel? The pic I have of him in LA is at the harbor. I tried looking for arrival into LA, with no luck. Louis Littman Gold, of course he could have been listed by another name. He was married but he said other wise. His wife Rebecca and children were in Phil. He was born about 1840. He died in in Israel and is buried on the Mt of Olives. This pic is Louis, daughter Sara and my grandmother Kate Schlissel Keys. Thank you all. Gayle


Re: REPLY button

Marvin Lauwasser
 

I did log on to JewishGen but still saw no reply button.  Then I futzed around, officially (re)joining the discussion group and then wandering thru my account demographics and gave up in frustration.  Subsequently went back to a daily summary message and amazingly, there was a reply button!!  Now it shows up every time I click on a subject, regardless whether I'm logged in.   I wish I could reproduce the path for you that brought me success but I can't. 

BUT....just now i brought up the website.  I'm not logged in  Displayed though are 4 login IDs.  I had previously logged in using my researcher #.  There were also 2 old email addresses that forwarded emails to my 3rd currently used address.  With the account activity of a few days ago, i seem to recall adding the new address.  Of the 4 login IDs available to login, that is the only one to show "groups.jewishgen.org".  The older 3 show "from this website".

Maybe that's how i did it.  Just sharing.

Roy Ogus
 

I am trying to find someone who would be willing to visit the Shalom Memorial Park Cemetery, Skokie, in the Chicago area to take a picture of a gravestone of one of my family members.  The exact address of the cemetery is 1700 W. Rand Road, Arlington Heights, IL 60004

I can supply more details of the names of the deceased individuals and the gravestone location if you are able to help me.

I would appreciate hearing from anyone would would be able to do this for me.  I will be glad to reimburse you for any expenses involved.  Please reply to me privately.

Many thanks!

Re: Professional genealogist? (Russia to London migration in early 19th century)

rv Kaplan
 

Can you tell us what CMJ stands for please.

Your question is common, as often the census just says Russia, Russian, Russian Poland etc.  Did anyone in the family naturalise (National Archives in London hold the records).  Are there any surviving family marriage documents - ketubot - which would state where in the old country a marriage took place,

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page

Bruce Drake
 

International Holocaust Remembrance Day is on Monday. There are many gripping accounts of that tragic time contained in Yizkor books. I wanted to find an excerpt for this week that captured those memories in a special way. There is perhaps no more eloquent expression of grief and pain and anger than what people say when they are facing death in days or hours. Such last words were written by Jews on the walls of the Great Synagogue in Kovel (Ukraine), where they had been rounded up and taken to await extermination. They wrote with pencils, pens or whatever other implements they could find. Shlomo Perlmutter, who visited the synagogue after the war, was struck by one note whose writer “had obviously spent much effort to do it with his finger nails in the hard wall… There were dried blood stains near the writing.”

The notes which follow Perlmutter’s account speak for themselves.

I have excerpted the notes and rearranged the order in which they were transcribed in the Kovel Yizkor book.

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

Trudy Barch
 

My personal thoughts.   1)  Could twins have been born and one died at birth?  2) on the first certificate for mothers name before marriage it repeats her married name, the second certificate lists her maiden name.  3) the first certificate was done at birth; (according to the stamped date);   the second one possibly months or years later.  Something to think about.     Trudy Barch,  Florida


Re: out going passenger list Phil. to Palestine

Rose Feldman
 

I suggest you try the IGRA collection. Registration is free and will allow you to do a search but not see all the details. The second possibility , if you read Hebrew is to download the lists of immigrants and Jewish arrivals from the Israel State Archives and go through page by page.

Professional genealogist? (Russia to London migration in early 19th century)

jamehar@...
 

I’ve been researching a branch of my family for some time and have hit a brick wall.

I know that my ancestors moved from ‘Russia’ to London at some point in the first half of the 1800’s, and have found UK census records confirming our family’s oral history. I’ve also identified that my ancestor sent his children to a school run by the CMJ  in Palestine Place (although the CMJ has not been forthcoming in sharing records - even though I know the folios I want access to).

Re: Need translation of handwritten Cyrillic birth record

Martha Forsyth
 

What a beautifully-written, clear document!  Since someone has already translated it, I won't struggle through it ("struggle" because I'm not familiar with either the handwriting or the style of these documents) - but I can't help saying how much I admire it as a document!

Transcribers of Cyrillic needed

Debra Wolraich
 

The JewishGen Belarus Research Division is seeing volunteers to help transcribe records in handwritten Russian from Pinsk and Bobruysk regions.  The work can be done online.  No translation will be required - you will only need to transcribe the original Russian names.  Please contact project coordinator, Debra Wolraich, at djwolraich@... if you can help.

Did a member of your family spend time at the transmigrant facility in Atlantic Park, Eastleigh, England in the 1920's?  I have photos and a newsletter from that period and would like to set up a website for them and others you may have.
