Philadelphia births #general

A. E. Jordan
 

How easy is it to access birth records >from the city of Philadelphia for
1900? I know the person's name (Abraham Lincoln KORENSTEIN) and I am told he
was born in 1900 in Philadelphia. I know nothing else. Any hope here? It
is too much to be asking to be able to research this via the Internet I am
sure -- but I live several hours away >from Philadelphia.

Thanks.

Northern New Jersey Cemeteries #general

A. E. Jordan
 

Anyone out there know the Northern New Jersey Cemeteries?

A couisin tells me his father is buried in Richfield Park, New Jersey.
The father lived and worked in Hoboken, New Jersey. I don't know a
Richfield Park and I am wondering if it could be Rochelle Park. Any
other thoughts on which cemetery I might be looking for?

Thanks.

Re: names Erma & Ola - Thank you! #general

LSHAPSKI <lshapski@...>
 

I am not able to respond personally to everyone who answered my queries
regarding the Russian given names Erma for a male and Ola for a female,
but I would like to thank everyone who took the time to share their
knowledge.

The general concensus re: the name Erma is that the "E" sound in Russian is
pronounced as "YE" would be in English. Therefore, Erma or Ermia is
actually Yermiah, or Jeremiah. One respondent even said that she had two
documents for one individual, one showing him as Ermia and the other as
Jeremiah.

The name Ola was not as clearly defined. Some responders were certain it
was Olya or Olga. Others referred to Oga, Alla, or Elka or Elke... One
person told me her mother's Yiddish name was Olia. I did not say in my
original query that the name Ola was not on an official Russian document
but on a printed Russian wedding invitation, i.e., on a somewhat formal
but not official record.
A few people pointed out that the name "Alta" was probably given to "fool
the Angel of Death", because it means "Old" in Yiddish. (I was aware of
that before, but had not stated that in my letter.)

Sorry, for once you are mistaken

Royz - in Yiddish: resh vav jod zayin - means rose, which makes ROSE an
obvious name to take for a family with such a name emigrating to USA. In
Poland the name would probably be spelled ROJZ - and Beider finds it in
Biala, Radzyn, Pulawy, Janow and Warsaw. Artificial names starting with
ROJZ- abound in Poland and they all derive >from the name of that flower. >>

It would be helpful if we all took some minimal care before pouncing on
someone's "mistake."

Yes, thank you, I happen to know the German word Rose (pron. Raw-ze) which
means Rose, and the Yiddish derivatives (more often Rosele or Raysele than
Rose or roys, both for the name and the flower). It's the obvious origin
of the NAME and I had mentioned this in my very first sentence. But the
original query was about a Yiddish word. The Yiddish word that's
pronounced "roys" is >from the German " ' raus."--a word that we Jews in
Germany heard all too often. It means "get out" etc and is not by any
means as sweet smelling as a rose.

Yes, many Jews bore the name Rosen, Rosenberg, Rosenbaum etc. often
because Rose, Rosa, Rayzele etc was a maternal name in the family, others
because it was emblematic, or simply because they liked it. But the
word roys would have been something else.

Dear genners,
I've posted a photo that belonged to my maternal grandparents. The
people in this photo might or might not be members of my BASSEIN,
KAGAN/COHEN, GUREVICH/HOROWITZ, PALEY, RODMAN or TONIS families, however I
suspect that the seated man was named Jacob LIEBERMAN. I don't know if he
was related to me or not. The photo was taken in 1909 in New York City at
the Paley Photography Studio. It is inscribed to Rokhil: Remember
Kreslavka, Donya, Yacov and Silya. Are any of these faces or names
familiar to you? If so, please respond privately.
Sincerely,

Steve, is this charge based on amount of dollars and do you know if
there are any other charges assessed for the service. Earlier this year
the Bank of New York quoted a fee of about $80.00 to send $100.00
to Belarus and explained that their foreign transfers are mainly commercial
transactions in high dollar amounts. Could you give us more details, i.e.,
Name of Bank, Countries serviced, Fee scale, etc. I'm sure there are
many SIGers who would appreciate it.

Copy prices #belarus

Dear All,

You should be aware that copies of documents purchased direct >from the Minsk
Archives cost all of $5.00. Translations done here for legal purposes are
seldom more than $10.00. In terms of prices for hand copying you should be
aware that the director of the archive only makes about $30 a month. It
seems ironic to me, in light of this, that comments are sometimes made about
the exploitative pricing of the National Archive.

Hand-copy of records, translated into English: $60.00 (i.e., $50 for
