Eastern Europe For-Fee Researchers #general

Peter Haas <ppeett@...>
 

Fellow Genners

Many of you may recall that during the past couple of months we worked on a
Jewishgen-hosted project to solicit inputs >from fellow SIG-members who have had
positive experiences dealing with "for-fee" eastern-Europe
genealogists/researchers. The purpose of the undertaking was to provide Genners
with an option to obtain help when they simply don't have the necessary patience,
time, experience, or language skills to make headways on their own.

Such a list of researchers has been compiled as an INFOFILE and is now available on
http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/researchers.htm . It represents responses >from
quite a few individual Genners who have had favorable experiences dealing with
these eastern Europe researchers. It is not however, an official JewishGen list of
recommendations since JewishGen does not independently check on the veracity and
completeness of the data.

We hope you find the list useful and we will endeavor to add entries as they become
available >from any and all eastern Europe SIG members. If you have had such
experiences that you wish to contribute, please share them with me
(Peter Haas --- ppeett@...). Additional caveats and cautions about hiring
genealogists can be found on http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/profgen.html.

Can anyone please advise where Krol Polsk, Russia was in aprox 1910? & what it is
today. Can anyone please advise the same of Salomin, Russia in aproximately 1906?
Dear Ann,

"Krol Polsk" is not a town but an abbreviation of "Krolewstwo Polskie" or
Kingdom of Poland also known as Congress Poland or popular "Kongresowka"

Young lads have identified their home town in the manifests as Goscieradow, Krasnik
county, Lublin Province. You can pinpoint this place through ShtelSeeker at
5052 2201 about halfway between Annopol and Krasnik on the national road No.74

Salomin is located less than four miles distance direction SE >from Goscieradow at
5049 2203 .

Language translation tools #general

Sarah L Meyer
 

Dear Genners,
There were two letters in today's Jewish Gen digest stating that the
person needed to send a letter in another language but only spoke English.
While human translation is generally superior to machine translation, may I
suggest Google's language tools. If you go to www.google.com and look at
the right of the bar, you will see language tools. Click on language tools
(it may also be available under "More"). Scroll down to where you see a box
call and a translate text. Select the to and >from languages in the drop
down box and copy the letter that you wish to send into the box, hit
translate and copy and paste the translation into your email or letter.
When you receive a reply (if it is in email) you can do the same thing, and
just reverse the languages. There are an amazing number of languages there.
If you are a native speaker or know something about the language, there is
also a button to improve the translation. >from what I know (a little bit
about some other languages) the translations are fair. So this is a place
to start.

The name "Abusch" #galicia

I have been doing research on my HASENLAUF ancestors >from Nowy
Wisnicz (Bochnia), Galicia, and the male name "Abusch" appears
frequently in early 1800 records. It does not appear in the later records.
I cannot find this name "Abusch" on any Jewish name variations site. Is
there a more familiar alternative name for "Abusch"? I am trying to see
if there is a naming pattern in this family.

Re: Another puzzle #general

Just keep in mind that there was no H in the cyrilic language so they used
a G so in all likelihood you have two family members who share a common ancestor.

Almost Successful Search for: LIEBERMAN & LIFSCHITZ #general

Rachelle Berliner <rlberliner@...>
 

My appreciation and grateful thanks to all the genners who wrote to help me find my
LIFSCHITZ family in Israel. I particularly want to thank Shaul Sharoni, Brenda
Habshush, and Rose Feldman, whom I have personally thanked through email.

I have had contact with Amit TREISTER. Amit and Yerahmiel LIFSCHITZ may have been
related. I may have found Yerahmiel & Miriam LIFSCHITZ' son by the name of Shlomo.
I don't speak Hebrew but I have a phone number for him with the area code of 9. I
tried to call but couldn't communicate. I think that would be Netanya. That is
where Yerahmiel and Miriam lived prior to moving to Tel Aviv.

I would greatly appreciate an email >from someone who lives in Netanya who would be
willing to make the contact for me. If I am correct according to the Yad Vashem
search, Yerahmiel, obm, would have been my dad's youngest brother whom he never
met. The information would also verify the given names of my dad's sisters and what
happened to them. I am trying to establish this relationship through Shlomo if he
is indeed their son. I have also tried to call Miriam who now lives in Tel Aviv but
she doesn't answer her phone.

Many, many thanks!

Eastern Europe For-Fee Researchers #romania

ppeett@...
 

Fellow Genners,

Many of you may recall that during the past couple of months we
worked on a Jewishgen-hosted project to solicit inputs, >from
fellow SIG-members, who have had positive experiences dealing
with "for-fee" eastern-Europe genealogists/researchers. The purpose
of the undertaking was to provide Genners with an option to obtain
help when they simply don?t have the necessary patience, time,
experience, or language skills to make headway on their own.

Such a list of researchers has been compiled as an INFOFILE
and is now available on http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/researchers.htm .
It represents responses >from quite a few individual Genners who
have had favorable experiences dealing with these eastern Europe
researchers. It is not however, an official JewishGen list of
recommendations since JewishGen does not, independently check on
the veracity and completeness of the data.

We hope you find the list useful, and we will endeavor to add
entries as they become available >from any and all eastern Europe
SIG members. If you have had such experiences that you wish to
contribute, please share them with me (Peter Haas - ppeett@...).
Additional caveats, and cautions about hiring genealogists can be
found on http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/profgen.html.
