2021.10.25 13:09 kennyyymarshall The actual name change after Ellis Island! And the power of index newspaper articles!
Can't tell you how excited I am to share this! Huge breakthrough for my research!
My 2nd great-grandfather, Moische Dreer, immigrated to New York on June 25, 1891 with his son Abram from "Russia". They moved to Philadelphia and around January of 1892, purchased tickets for the rest of the family to be delivered to Lemburg, or Lwow, Poland - wife Tsipa "Zippe" Dreer, and children Benzion, Itzhak, and Josef, who arrived in Philadelphia on Feb 15, 1892. On the passenger list, their last residence was Czernowitz. Lots of info to work with for origins!
But that's where the trail runs dry in Philadelphia. I can't locate Moische or Zippe Dreer in the 1900 US Census or any census after, no graves, death certs, naturalization, just nothing. I check the cemeteries where the kids are buried - no dice. I search every variation of Morris and Celia, Moishe and Tsipa, etc. Even worse, all the kids list their parents as Morris and Celia on their death certs so I know it's them, just can't locate anything for the life of me.
Now the kids, Abe, Benny, Joe, and Isaac (Isadore, my ggf) all naturalize in Philly. On Benjamin and Joe's naturalization papers, they list "Winnitza" as their place of birth. This leads me to find a Dreer family in Vinnitsa from their archives where everything matches - Moische is "Aron-Moyshe Shmulovich Dreer", wife Tsipa, Abe and Joe are listed in the 1891 family census of Jews. Case closed, right?
But I still can't find where Morris and Celia went! Until Friday!
Going through Newspapers.com to find an obituary for a cousin, I decide to search for Dreer between their arrival in 1892 and 1910. And after sifting through pages and pages of Dreers in Philadelphia (since a famous Dreer family ran a large seed business there) I locate a very interesting article.
"Foreigner Wants His Name Changed. Desiring to have his name legally recorded as Abraham Dreer. Abraham Goldstein yesterday petitioned Judge Dallas in the United States Circuit Court to have it so written on his naturalization papers. He stated that his name was Dreer, but that when he came to this country from Russia, he found his father using the name of Goldstein, and so he, too, assumed it. He was naturalized under that name. The court withheld its decision..." The Philadelphia Inquirer, April 26, 1904.
Hmm! So I take a look at Abraham's naturalization as Abraham Dreer - it occurs on June 6, 1904. Well that can't just be a coincidence!
So I take the plunge and search for Morris and Celia Goldstein - BINGO. Immediately I locate a death certificate for Morris Goldstein and Celia Goldstein, along with FindAGrave entries for "Moses" with wife Tsipa/Celia, the 1900 census with wife Celia and the whole family, naturalization petitions, etc. And the FindAGrave happens to have a picture!!
The translation of the Hebrew says Here lies our beloved Father, our teacher the master Moshe Aharon, son of Shmail Meir Dreer Goldstein who walked the good path all his days. Deceased 2 Adar II in the year 5670. May his soul be bound up in the bond of life.
And get this - on the actual headstone, it says Morris DREER Goldstein!
So not only do I figure out Morris/Moses's story, but also Celia/Tsipa's! And the matzevah is the icing on the cake - not only does it say Dreer, but also confirms his name as Aron-Moyshe, his father's name as Shmail/Shmul, and his grandfather's name as Meir - exactly as the Vinnitsa census records indicate. Aron-Moyshe Shmulovich Dreer, son of Shmul-Gersh Meerovich Dreer.
Moral of the story - all it takes is one lucky piece of info to turn the search around!
Happy searching to all of you, keep the faith and hang in there. I've been working on this particular link since 2013 and can't tell you the satisfaction I feel right now! None of our family knew what happened to Morris and Celia until I shared this with them!

Hello everyone, I'm not sure if this allowed but I'd just like some help from Japanese-speaking players if they know the JP translation for Gladiia's "Selecting Operator 2" voiceline, which is "As you wish" in EN. I'm currently studying the language and I tend to get curious about random words that catch my attention. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

I have confirmed entities possesing me but whenever a western non Muslim shaman calculates, it sees no entities. But there are confirmed entities they get active inside me on different occasions. So my question is western shamanism don't get djinns in there calculations? Or other spirits too?

2021.10.25 13:09 SirBlueEyed 28 [M4F] Louisiana/Michigan. Let's spend our days and nights together?
I'll start off by saying, Hi! I go by Blue its a nickname I got from my friends like 10 years ago and they have called me that ever since. So at this point in time im used to it more than my own name so feel free to call me Blue but, I will tell you my real name if you get curious.
I am a gamer (PC) its what I do with most if not all of my free time. I have never been one that likes to go out and party and what not. I am not opposed to it just would rather stay home and play some games with my friends. So if you're a gamer thats a huge plus if not that's totally fine we can have other interests else where!
I am currently unemployed and I'm waiting for my friends to get a house in Michigan because I want to move there so bad. I've been there before some years ago and I loved every second up there and I can't wait to get back! I havent expiernced the winter up there but seeing as I'm from Louisiana ill probably die from the cold haha.
I am a bigger guy im not skinny by any means but im working on it. I am bald but I have a nice beard that usually smells amazing just saying!
Well I'm not sure what else to really write but feel free to message me and ask me questions or if you would just like to get to know me!

2021.10.25 13:09 LowInFat Travel During Covid
I'm a Canadian currently traveling in Europe and looking to spend a few months in India before returning home for work in April. Much of the info online about covid and restrictions is outdated and/or contradictory, and I was hoping to get a better sense of what things look like on the ground right now.
Case rates seem low but restrictions high. Are the restrictions actually enforced? Are there many people traveling in the country right now? I read that tourist visas will only resume on Nov 15th. Have there been no tourists since covid started? I'm a solo traveler so my biggest concern is hostels being completely empty or, worse yet, closed. Any insider knowledge?

2021.10.25 13:09 MateoXV What do you think of Meg?
Meg is the last brawler that has been added to the game, and right now she is pretty underwhelming, but I have seen many different opinions about her, so I wanted to hear yours. I actually think that the mechanics of Meg are Ok, but I don't think she was thought mindfully, let me explain: Meg is the brawler that can literally turn herself into another brawler with her super, so the big buddy Rub should be hard to get but really strong... Right? And here is where my problem with Meg comes, her super is really easy to charge, but Rob is not even that strong, which feels kinda weird. I want to make an interesting comparison for this between two game that have a similar concept to Meg: D.va from Ow and the Imp from PVZ GW2 and BFN This two character have something in common with Meg and is that both have a Mech, but the idea behind this mech is different. While D.va starts in her Mecha and turns into the baby state, Imp does exactly the opposite, and it takes him a considerable time to get into the robot The main difference is that one doesn't feel like two characters in the same while the other does, Can you get where I'm going? Meg Right now gets her Mech too easily, but also gets downed out of her Mech too easily, so she Is in her Mech form almost every time, but it doesn't even feel like a game changing super, which is pretty different from what they have make us thought from the beginning. So... What would make her fit in this role of "weak but after she gets her Mech she can beat anybody"? It's not necessary a complex rework just some changes here and there, and this is my idea: Nerfs: - Now the super takes the double of hits to charge (from 6 hits to 12) - her first SP from 35 secs. To 10 secs.
Buffs: - Rob now has 8960 health points - Rob's main attack unload speed is buffed (15% faster) - Meg starts with two ammo after getting out of Rob - Second SP explosion has a bigger area (20% more area) and deals 1500 points of damage
I know there must be many persons that like the concept behind the current Meg, but this is just my idea to make her more fun and stronger, tell me what you think and I would like to hear your feedback.

2021.10.25 13:09 Slow_Python_v1 Did they buff infected perception?
Just died after two days traveling to the NWA..
Got there at dark and crouched around, saw a headlamp zombie and was waiting in a bush, used a suppressed cr75 to kill one close to me but he wasn't aggro.
Almost a minute later watching the headlamp zombie all the sudden 4 scream at me and start running (I hadn't moved since going to the bush).
K/O and woke up with no blood and 4 cuts. Got two but died.
I've run past groups of infected at night before why were these alerted by me standing still in a bush??
