Searching: RUZUMNA #belarus


mindy <mindyl@...>
 

Hi, I am new to this list and I am looking forward to being on it.
My name is Mindy Ruzumna and I live in San Diego.

I am looking for information about my father's family. His name
was Simon RUZUMNA. I have relatives in Michigan. MY dad died when I was
very young and I was never able to find out very much...
I hope some of you can help me...

I found the easiest way to start searches if no relatives remain is to pull
the 1920 and 1910 and 1900 census and get what's there.

Yes, I believe they did. My father was born in Russia, but I have no
idea where. I have contacted relatives in Michigan but they are not
particularly interested or helpful.

I joined this list hoping to hear something or to see if anyone knows any
of my relatives anywhere.

I have no idea where in belarus my family came from. I beleive my mother's
family is >from there also. Her maiden name was Mollye Weingarden and her parents were Esther and Herman Weingarden.
I have no more information.

Esther and Herman are long gone. My mother died in 1983 and my dad died when I was 8 years old. I have been on my own for a very long time. My relatives on either side are not too helpful.
I will figure it out though.

You may find valuable info on Esther's and Herman's death certificates.
If they are still living ask them.

For the last five minutes, I have been trying to think what would help
you the most and the only thing that I have come up with is: to go to
your local LDS and fill out the soundex for each name that you are
looking for-then go and find the census for 1900-1910 and 1920. This
should be in the county city and state that they were living at the the
time of the census-then it should give at the least year of arrival and
country that they came from.
With this you should be able to go to the next step. To go on might
confuse you. Ask for help >from their volunteers.

Dear Mindy,
(deliberately replied to "group")

I've seen hundreds of postings of people looking for someone who
knows their "grand-uncle this", or "ggmother that". I have a
hunch they're not very successful. Sorry, but it's not usually
that easy.

And besides, if you really want to find someone who recognizes
your name, add it to the JGFF and FTJP. They're the JewishGen
Family Finder and the Family Tree of the Jewish People. Post
your names there, and you'll get your message out to thousands of
people all the time. You can find them at the main JewishGen
website.

As for the use of this list, if you're willing, we can help you
to find that information about your father and his families, even
if your relatives don't want to help. We can teach you how to
use available research and resources, we can help you translate
something non-English (valley-girl doesn't count <g>).
We can help you around "brick walls".

Use us for what we're good at!

Well, Weingarden should get you going somewhere as it is
not really as rare as Ruzumna.

There of course is always the chance that Ruzumna is a US made up
at immigrations name. This is not unusual. The immigration guy
says where you >from bud and the yid say "Ruzz" meaning Russia.
So the immigration man says OK bud your "Ruzmano."
The rest is history.

Or, maybe Ruzumna is Turkic- and not Russian. Comments?

The suggestion that RUZUMNA is Turkic sounds witty, but nevertheless I
suppose its originated >from Slavic "RAZUMNIY" = "reasonable, wise".
Try to check FamilyFinder on that spelling.

I too am relatively new to genealogy searching. If you can, I suggest
you purchase the book Genealogy Online for Dummies by Matthew L. Helm
and April Leigh Helm. I would suspect that Borders or Barnes & Noble
or any bk dealer could order it for you, if it isn't in stock.

This helped give me a lot of basic information. But, you'll also find
oodles of basic advice and info on the various genealogy websites.
Look at JewishGen and go >from there.
If you want, feel free to e-mail me off list.
