The ellis island site covers only the years 1892 through 1924. It is a great tool
for genealogists, especially if you use the wonderful front end (with our special
soundex) >from www.stevemorse.org.

Ancetry has a broader range of years for New York City and also has many other
eastern seaboard ports. Note that stevemorse.org also has some front ends to these
queries, but to view the manifests, you need to have ancestry. Last time I looked
they covered Baltimore Passenger Lists, 1820-1948 * Boston Passenger Lists,
1820-1943 * California Passenger and Crew Lists, 1893-1957 * Galveston Passenger
Lists, 1896-1948 * New Orleans Passenger Lists, 1820-1945 * New York Passenger
Lists, 1820-1957 * Philadelphia Passenger Lists, 1883-1945
If you dont have a subscription, try your local library, as many have Ancestry in
house.

Happy Hunting!

Three Radomysls had substantial Jewish populations before World War II:

1) Radomysl Wielki, Poland
2) Radomysl nad Sanem, Poland

-- These two towns are in what's now southeast Poland (once western
Galicia). Radomysl Wielki, the larger of the two (hence the name --
which means Big Radomysl) is 18 miles NE of Tarnow. Jewish population
in 1890: c. 1900. Radomysl nad Sanem (now Radomysl) is 14 miles NE
of Tarnobrzeg. Jewish population in 1900: c. 400

3) Radomysl, USSR

-- This town is now Radomyshl, Ukraine, 30 miles NE of Zhytomyr.
Before WWI it was in the Russian Empire. Jewish population in 1900:
c. 7,500.

(Source for locations and populations: JewishGen Communities
Database, http://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/Search.asp )

According to the Jewish Genealogical Society (NY)'s database of
"Burial Societies in the New York Metro Area"
(http://www.jgsny.org/searchcity.htm), the Radomysler Young Men's
Benevolent Association #1 was formed by immigrants >from the
once-Russian Radomysl. But I wonder.

I looked at the burials in the RYMBA section at Mount Zion Cemetery
(http://mountzioncemetery.com/search.asp -- Radomysler-1, Path
34R). They include several distinctive names that occur in Radomysl
Wielki and vicinity -- ALWEIS, BISGAIER, FALEK, GEIGER.

In addition to its section at Mount Zion, the RYMBA had plots at Beth
Moses, Beth David, and (Old) Montefiore Cemeteries. If you have a
relative buried in a Radomysler Young Men's plots and know his/her
place of origin, would you please let me know?

There is a fair chance to have more info about him at the Museum of Jewish Battalions

I wonder is anybody has any information about JACOB APTEKMAN, born about 1895 in the

Re: Viewmate - Please decipher handwriting / Mary #general

Dear Cousins,

In addition to Barbara Mannlein's good explanation, I have to add that even if the
informant's name is on the death certificate, don't assume that he or she said the
deceased's mother's name was Mary. If the informant gave a Yiddish or Hebrew name
that the person writing the death certificate had never heard or didn't know how to
spell, then it also could have been "translated" to a familiar name like Mary.

I think that the only safe conclusion is the name started with M. But it narrows
the possibilities in further searches of population registers vital documents.

The Sephardic Legacy in New Mexico: A History of the Crypto-Jews A talk and
presentation by Dr. Stanley M. Hordes

Jewish Community Library 1835 Ellis Street San Francisco, CA 94115 7:30 pm

During his tenure as New Mexico State Historian in the 1980's, Dr. Hordes met
people in the Hispanic community who displayed practices suggestive of Jewish
customs, such as lighting candles on Friday night for the Jewish Sabbath and
following Jewish dietary laws. His research led to his award-winning book on the
history of the crypto-Jews in New Mexico. Dr. Hordes will discuss the evolution of
the crypto-Jews >from their origins in the forced conversions of Spain in the 14th
and 15th centuries to the recent past, describing the customs and consciousness
that have survived to this day.

Dr. Stanley M. Hordes is an adjunct research professor at the Latin American and
Iberian Institute of the University of New Mexico. His book "To the End of the
Earth: A History of the Crypto-Jews of New Mexico" was awarded the Gaspar Perez de
Villagre Prize in 2006 by the Historical Society of New Mexico for outstanding
historical publication of the year. In 2007, the book won the Southwest Book
Award, given by the Border Regional Library Association. This event is cosponsored
by the San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society.
