That statement is wrong on numerous levels, number one of which is that while an employer may withhold earnings of a W-2 employee for the purpose of paying income taxes, it is the employee that pays those taxes. Until a return is filed and processed, the withheld amount is a deposit made on the employee's behalf. The amount of the deposit is based on the gross wages of the employee. If the tax rate drops, also would the deposit, and ultimately the tax. But the amount of gross wages are unaffected.
And a big juggling act ahead as the Prime Minister enters the next stage of his political career - either building a domestic legacy by successfully tackling some major domestic issues; building the platform for his international post-politics career; or managing both through to the point where National does win a fourth term in office in spite of the Prime Minister's increasing profile on the world stage.
This data completes the 1897 Census database which we began in 2002 with
data for Vitebsk Gubernia: Rezekne (Rezhitsa) and Krustpils (Kreuzberg).
In 2003 we added data from Riga, and in 2005 we added data for five
Courland Gubernia towns: Talsi (Talsen), Jaunjelgava (Friedrichstadt),
Jekabpils (Jakobstadt), Valdemarpils (Sassmacken), and Tukums (Tukum).
From the Lithuanian Central State Archives, 183 2 inventory. Personal

in Vilnius, some of whom may be Jews.
According to the caption on the photograph, the copyright is owned by Tomasz Wisniewski. Would it be possible for me to receive an electronic copy of the photograph for use in my article (in high resolution, preferably as a TIF file)? I would be happy to cite your website and/or Mr Wisniewski, or whatever other information you would like.
In another Tribune story, Bliss and Griffin noted that Linda Taylor had been arrested twice in the 1960s for absconding with children, though she wasn't convicted in either case because the little ones were returned. The reporters also laid out a possible motive. "Chicago's welfare queen," they wrote, "has been linked by Chicago police to a scheme to defraud the public aid department during the mid-1960s by buying newborn infants to substantiate welfare claims."
This line of casting thought extends to other plays in the substantial ensemble. Why not, for example, hire Tyler Perry, who has turned himself in a household name with outsize charisma and a self-forged aura of spiritual authority, to play a showboating A-list lawyer? Throughout Gone Girl, the roles fit so very snugly.
This is one of the most exciting lists I have ever received due to the
wealth of information included for most of those listed.

The Panevezys district Research Group is posting to its Shutterfly website a list of owners of insured real estate in six more towns in the District in 1910, and their insured value also in 1910. The towns being listed are Birzai (133 owners), Linkuva (112 owners), Pakruojis (124 owners), Pasvalys (195 owners), Pusalotas (65 owners) and Salociai (22 owners). Previously the Group posted lists for eight towns and shtetls of the District: Klovainiai, Naujamiestis, Nemunelio Radiviliskis, Smilgiai, Truskava, Krekenava Ramygala and Rozalimas. The first five of these had a relatively small number of property owners when compared with the last three and the newly posted six. These lists are significant for showing the extent of real estate ownership and give some indication of the wealth of the owners and of the Jewish community of each town. The data are in the Excel format which give the owner's surname and given name, the father's name in some cases, noting where the property is held in common (presumably with a co-owner not necessarily a spouse), street location in many cases and the value of the property in current (1910) rubles. All of the records are located in the same file at the Kaunas Archives.
The spreadsheet files for the towns in Lida, Oshmiany and Trakai districts
have been posted to their Shutterfly sites. The files for the towns in
Vilnius District will be posted to that Shutterfly site over the next few
months. Future translations of remaining filmed vital records will be funded
by the Vilnius District Research Group.
First, I finally found the ship manifest showing my great-great-grandmother Hode GORDON and her daughter Rochel GORDON arriving in New York in December 1907, sailing from Liverpool. They are going to Hode's son "Solomon GORDON", who paid for the voyage. The destination address given is identical to that seen on my great-uncle Nathan Aaron GORDON's 1909 birth certificate. I am confident that "Solomon" is identical with Nathan's father, my great-grandfather Jacob GORDON, whose original name (as attested on his tombstone) was Schneier Zelman ben Nachum Aron. Presumably his family originally called him Zelman, and Solomon was their anglicization of that. The 1909 birth certificate lists him as "Jake", the name he eventually settled on to use in America.
The Vilnius Gubernia VRT Project has now been incorporated into the relevant
District Research Groups for towns in Lida, Oshmiany, Trakai and Vilnius
Districts. The groups are responsible for funding translations of remaining
available vital records. The files will be available on the district
