Don't place too much reliance on ONS! #general

Naidia Woolf <rnwoolf@...>
 

I've learned not to place too much reliance in The General Register Office
(in the UK) as the primary and most predictable source of vital records.
This is especially important if a researcher is not sure of his/her facts.
For example, on two separate occasions I had GRO conduct searches for my
maternal grandmother's death record; I also had them search for the birth
record of my paternal grandmother (who was born in England). In all
instances they came up empty-handed. In the case of my maternal g-m this
was because I wasn't sure of her first name or of date of death: I was off
by 2 years. (See below.) As for my paternal g-m, for some reason they were
unable to trace her birth record even though I furnished them with the info
as it appeared in the 1881 British census (now on CD).

As much as possible, do as much of the hands-on research yourself! Don't
rely too much on others! Also, pursue all possible avenues. An excellent
source of BMD records in the UK is the St. Catherine's Register, available
at main libraries. The last time I was in Birmingham I found an entry for
my parents' marriage record.
I also called the B'ham Register Office (see below) and subsequently
obtained a copy of the marriage record >from them.

For those of you with ancestral links to Birmingham --

To access the Birmingham City Council & all its departments incl. the
Register Office) go to www.birmingham.org.uk/registeroffice . This site
gives general info about the registration services offered, plus the
address & phone numbers, & e-mail address.

To find out about ordering vital records, click on the following links:
__certificates__ (to view & print the forms you need); __information__
(useful info you'll need), and __fees.

Be sure to follow the instructions precisely, especially re payment. For
e.g. they ask you to write on your check "an amount not to exceed 20 pounds
sterling." (This should be written directly below the amount line on the
check.) Since I prefer to pay by credit card (no exchange rate problems!) I
always tell them to charge my credit card in the same fashion.

If you have any questions, you can e-mail them at:

register_office@...

Their mailing address is:

Registrar of Birth, Marriages, and Deaths
Register Office
300 Broad Street
Birmingham B1 2DE
England

The same requirements (& fees) probably apply to ordering vital records
from any register offices in the UK. -- but it's best to check.
I recently received a copy of my paternal g-m's birth cert. >from the
Register Office (which I'd had no success in obtaining >from GRO for some
reason.)

There's a handy web site that lists all of the register offices by country
and by city (alphabetically) in England and Wales.
www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/RegOffice/

Other sources in the UK would be the individual synagogues & burial
society(ies) and the Federation of Synagogues in London. These are but two
of the many excellent sources available (for vital record info in the UK)--
too many to list here. (Check JewishGen's FAQ sheet.) I've found that
contacting the burial societies, etc. can help you if only by omission. For
e.g., I was able to determine that my maternal g-m was __not__ buried in
either Northampton or Preston (both cities where my grandparents lived for
some time).

Lastly, don't give up hope! Perseverance __can__ pay off! Two years ago I
asked my cousin in Birmingham if he knew when & where our grandmother died.
He said he "thought there was a copy of her burial notice somewhere in a
box." A few months ago (when I'd practically given up hope) he sent me a
copy of the burial notice (which he'd finally retrieved >from the "mystery"
box in his flat). This gave me all the data I needed to order her death
cert >from GRO: her name; age at time of death; date and place of burial
(incl. burial lot), and last place of residence (Hampstead, London).

from the burial notice I learned that my g-m was buried under the name of
Rachel ROSE (elsewhere her first name was given as Sarah; Rachel Sarah were
her two given names); that she had died in 1920 not 1918 -- wrong info
provided by well-meaning family member --and that she had been living (and
had subsequently died) in London. Since she died of TB it's possible she
was placed in a sanatorium in London. (There were several hospitals and
nursing homes in the part of London at the time she died.) Another avenue
for research!

Re Disease: Skruplitzni #general

Norman Feldman <felvelnic@...>
 

My father, born in the Ukraine in 1880,spoke approvingly of his strength
and good health being due to all the cod liver oil he drank when he was
growing up, glasses full,he said. Still, he died at age 63.

It must be Rickets caused by lack of D-vitamin. Before the 1920s
nutritionel Rickets caused considerable health problems, special in towns
in the temperate zones. Insufficient exposition to sun (climate,
clothing, long work hours) and lack of vitamin-D-containing food (milk,
egg and other animalic foods) resulted for children in deformity of the
bone structure, bad teeths, a general bad health susceptible to
infections and pneumonia. For grown-ups in painfull osteomalaci. In the
Stetl it must have been well known.
Cod liver oil rich on D-vitamin was a cheep and available product. The
daily spoonful was a widespread and very sound advice, but the
taste...awfull. My mother had her nursing education in the 1920s when all
the new knowledge about vitamins abounded, and she had a "bee in her
bonnet" about vitamins. Till we were 19 (and left town) my sister and I
only twice managed to escape in the morning without having swallowed that
horrid spoonful!

I would like to determine the correct medical terminology for a
"dangerous" disease known as "Skruplitzni". In Lithuania, the home
remedy for this was eggnog and fish oil or "lebertran". In fact, a
spoonful of the "lebertran" was swallowed daily.

Jewish Anarchists in PA, NJ, NY, DE #general

Jenny Schwartzberg <schwartzberg@...>
 

Hello All,
I am researching my great-grandfather, Joseph Jacob (J.J.) COHEN
(1878-1952), who was a well-known Jewish anarchist, editor of the _Freie
Arbeiter Stimme_, founder of several anarchist colonies in Stelton, NJ,
Sunrise, MI, and Samos, VA. He also was involved in the Radical Library in
Philadelphia, and the Ferrer Modern School in New York, then Stelton, NJ.
In my research I have come across lots of general very interesting Jewish
anarchist history and found historians very interested in that area. It
occurred to me that some of you may have ancestors or cousins who were also
anarchists and involved in these various communities and organizations. I
would very much like to hear >from any of you with any connection to these
above mentioned groups or >from the states mentioned in the subject:
Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, etc. I can ask the
historians I know about information about other anarchist organizations not
included in this message. This is not a political thing. I am a Democrat
myself. I just find the whole history of the movement in the early 20th
century fascinating! Yours cordially,

Peoria question #general

Bheinrich@...
 

According to family tradition, my great-grandfather Abel GIBIAN(SKI) came
to the US around 1890 and lived with Jacob Szold ( a relative of Henrietta
Szold) in the Peoria area. According to the JGFF, Abel was born in
Suwallki in 1875.
The only ship record for an Abel Gibianski shows him arriving in 1876 aged
35. Now I know people often lied, but that is too much. I have Abe's
naturalization certificate >from the County Court of Peoria in 1898. Family
lore says he graduated high school in Peoria and worked at the Szold
Department store there. I have tried finding out more information and keep
getting to dead ends. Can anyone in Peoria tell me where I can find old
school records etc?

Also family tradition says in 1898 he served in the Spanish American War
in the German - American battalion. I have contacted the various army
record places and they have no record of him . Any ideas?

Burial of unnamed babies #general

Gilda and Bob Kurtzman <gildak@...>
 

In my grandmother's grave is buried "baby Louis". The family story I heard
was that there was a baby who did not live. Apparently the baby did not
have a brit as there was no Hebrew name but perhaps was given an English
name for the secular records. I also heard that it was the custom to bury
an infant together with the mother (I suppose the plot must have been bought
long before the mother died).

Does anyone know anything about this custom? And why there should be a
secular name without a Hebrew name. Perhaps the baby was given a secular
name for the official records but died before seven days?

Seeking Max GOLDSTEIN's Relatives #general

Carole Feinberg <feincgs@...>
 

Hello, Genners,

This is a first-time posting for any information on Max/Markus
GOLDSTEIN, probably born circa 1870, location unknown. I am actually
seeking information about his wife, Zeisel, who was a SCHECK.

Max and Zeisel were grocers in the early 1900s on Broome Street, in
Manhattan, New York. My mother recalls crossing a little bridge from
her Harlem apartment to reach their home/store.

Zeisel (Sophie?) was Max' second wife, and Max was believed to have had
a child >from a previous marriage, none >from his second. This child
(female?) would have been born circa 1900. I am hoping someone will
recognize the tiny amount of information I've shared, and will contact
me.

I have a photo of Max and Zeisel GOLDSTEIN if anyone would care to see
it.
