Thanks for the pat on my back! ;)
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

MyHeritage? But I'm not sure actually it seems they also have a limit to how many profiles can be in your tree.

IIRC the tree has no limit, the limit is only on your "private website" they give you for your tree, however I think you can have as many private websites as you want.

In the words of the MyHeritage support team (in Israel :) )

"For the free version, the limit is 250 people per family site, but you can have as many family sites as you want. In other words, if you want to divide your family tree to different parts, you can do that without any limit, but the max on ONE single tree is 250.
 
BEHATSLACHA!!!

Best regards,
Jonathan"

----------

"You can create as many family sites as you want, with no limit.
To divide your tree into different trees on Family Tree Builder, please see the following post in our FAQ regarding this issue:
How do I export specific branches of my family tree in Family Tree Builder?

You should be able to open the tree and not load it every time you open Family Tree builder. Next time you open the program, go to File> Open and try opening the project that you were working on. If you previously saved it, you should be able to open. Let me know if there are any problems with that.

In Family Tree Builder, the most you can view is 4 generations at a given time. On the family site, however, you are able to zoom out more and view more sections of the tree. To view your entire tree, you can also create a chart in Family Tree Builder to view the tree as a PDF or even print it or order a poster of it.

Unfortunately a GEDCOM file can only be exported in one language- usually English. If the Hebrew in your tree did not transfer during the Gedcom export, you will have to add it manually.

Let me know if you need further assistance with anything.

Best regards,
Lior"

Can you add a GEDCOM file after you already opened account through the online page? I tried importing it when I opened account but it just took for ever to load.

I found a the passenger manifest of my grandparents ship to the US, and it mention as a relative a uncle with a nam and address. I never knew this person existed. Any ideas how to search for records of residents of a specific address? It's in the Bronx and the dicument was in 1938.

Try to search out that address in the 1940 census (I believe you can search by address). Also, searching old phone books might add a bit of info.

I have found someone in the 1930 and 1940 census who might match, however the address is different than the 1938 document. Any suggestions for finding old phone books for NYC  online?

I dont know of any phone books online although there might be.
The NY Public Library - research site on 5th ave has them all on microfilm.

Slightly unusual idea, but if you know someone in a post office, you might want to see if they can help. The USPS has software that could read pretty much any handwriting.

I did some genealogy research years ago, and have attempted to decipher many lines like this.  My best guess is Mattis/Mattes Dornblum, 139 Gerry St, New York.

Any idea where I can confirm the person who lived at that address? I've so far been unsuccessful.

I think your best bet is to go to the New York Public Library (big one on 42nd St in Manhattan) or maybe Brooklyn Public Library's Central Library and ask for help finding/looking through related microfilm/microfiche.  The NYPL is crazy big and may have a genealogy library with knowledgeable librarians who can steer you to what you need.

Not happening now. I'm trying to catch up on all my family genealogy during these unusual times.
