Belarus SIG #Belarus New reader's hello / Rylovichi #belarus

Friedrich Lehmkuehler <F.Lehmkuehler@...>
 

Dear fellow researchers,

I want to say hello as a new reader of this mailng list. I am looking for
my wife'S ancestry and I wonder if anybody else is interested in the town
of Rylovichi - some 50 miles SSE of Babruysk. My wife's grandmother has
been born there in the 1880s as a dughter of Rabbi Boris SAWIN
(transscription to German) or SAVIN (transcription to English). Is there
anybody out there who has any information about that town or that family?

Thank you,
Friedrich Lehmkuehler

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Polk Directory #general

glenda.rubin@...
 

I happened across an article yesterday about an adopted person searching
for his birth mother. In describing the search and searth methods, the
Polk Directory at the Library of Congress was mentioned as a source of
infomation in that it has the names, occupations, and marital status of
every US city's residents for a given year. The story seemed to indicate
that the place of employment was also listed.

I'd never heard of this directory. I don't recall it being mentioned in
the group (of course, memory may fail me) and, I am at the moment
Internet-less and therefore cannot look up the Library of Congress web
site or JewishGen discussion group archives or the info files to see.

Does anyone know of this source? Has it proved of any value? If someone
has information about the directory whether or not it's of any value, and
if it's available anywhere outside of the Library of Congress, would
appreciate if they would share it with the group. If not, I will, when I
can, try to find out more.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Tools for 1910 census #general

Nancy Holden
 

When using the National Archive microfiche that will give you the ED in
1910 you will need to know the address. In order to use this it is best to
have an address >from the closest date to the 1910 census. (1) Go to the
1900 census and the 1920 and see if the family owned the house. If so you
have the 1910 address or (2) go to the City Directories for 1909-1911 for
the address...these are available at the NY Public Library Main Branch or
(3) Try and locate the address on an existing document, i.e naturalization,
marriage, death certificate etc. (4) There is a 1910 Finding Aid that
details all of this...it can be found in Prologue Magazine printed by
National Archives.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Need BMD Application Forms for England #general

jsfriedman@...
 

Is there a London JewishGenner that could mail me 12 or more copies of each
of the Birth/Marriage/Death application forms that have to be filled out to
obtain a certificate at the Family Records Centre on Myddleton Street in
London?

I did contact the FRC via email and they responded that "the postal
application forms" (available on the web) "cannot be used for applications
made in person at the Family Records Centre as they have a different
application form. These are only available in person >from the FRC so I am
unable to send you a supply."

I'm planning a trip to London for a week at the end of February and would
like to have several forms already filled out before I arrive in London.
This would allow me to turn them in immediately in the short time I have my
first day in London before their closing time. Subsequently I this would
permit me to pick up the completed certificates before I leave London and
perhaps allow an additional follow-up research day. I already have obtained
many BMD record references >from viewing the English Vital Record Indexes at
the LDS Family History Library here in Los Angeles.

I realize this is an imposition to most (especially anyone not >from
London), but perhaps someone is planning a visit to the FRC in the next
week or so, or even works or lives nearby. I will of course reimburse you
for postage and any other incidental expenses.

Please contact me privately and I will send you my mailing address.

I searched my files and found the address in my BERMAN folder instead of in my
Places to Research folder. So here it is, finally:
Director of Archival Resarch
Historical Archives of Belarus
Kozlova Street 26
Minsk, Belarus

Note, I sent an air mail letter on Devember 18, so it took one month to
receive a response, which may just ask for money before a search starts. It's
in Russian, as mentioned and is being translated as a mitvah as I write.

Rearching: >from Disna District, Vilna Giberna in Belarus: CHIDEKEL (aka
HIDEKEL/KHIDEKEL and GIDEGAL), LEVIN-LEVINE (originally LURIA), SINGER,
GUREVICH related to one of those lines, MIRKIN related by marriage to a
CHIDEKEL; BERMAN, MUNIC (aka MOONIK). Towns: Sharkovshschina and Shkuntsiki,
both near Glebokie, (55 degrees22'/27 degrees28' and 55 degrees 22'/27 degrees
41' respectively).

Researching: >from Kovna Giberna, Lithuania: (Vilki/Vilkiji area) VOLK, FRANK,

Hi,

I'd like to learn if Jewish marriage registrations >from the mid-to-late
1800's, in Galicia (Austro-Hungary) included the names (and possibly towns
of origin) of the parents of the bride and groom.

Thanks.
