Looking for record of Death in Boston, MA - late 1800's - early 1900's #general

JonBorchard@...
 

I live in London and researching a branch of the family called MEDEX.

I now know that a Dinah MEDEX aged approx. 79 was living in 1890 at 111
Chambers, Boston. She was the widow of Sampson and she had a son called
Samuel ( he would have been about 38).

I know that she and her son Samuel were already in MA in 1870 as I found
them in the census. No record of her husband so presume he had already died.
She and her son were born in England.

I found her details on Ancestory.com in the 1890 Boston Directory.

Would anyone know how I could trace her death - presuming she carried on
living in Boston?? I presume she did not live too long after 1890 due to her
age!!!!

Are there any records or indexes or Jewish Records that may hold a clue?
Would a copy of a Will still be obtainable, presuming she left one??

Any help anyone can give me tracing Dinah, or in fact anyone named Medex for
that matter would be greatly appreciated.

need help to locate family in St Paul MN Censuses: 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920 #general

BarbKrauss@...
 

Dear Twin Cities Genners,
Through interlibrary loan through local archives at Western Michigan
University, I just received microfilms for the Ramsey County 1880, 1900,
1910, and 1920 Census among others.
I don't even know if my great-grandfather or his wife's relatives had
immigrated to St. Paul by 1880 but decided I had to try to see if anyone had
arrived yet....
Thanks to Ancestry.com's on-line Polk City Directory, I know that the
family lived at 461 or 478 Robert St in 1890-91.
Thanks to Charlotte Showel, I know that at the time of the 1895 MN
Census, they lived on Temperance St. and that they had moved to 212 14th St
by U.S. Census Day, June 5, 1900.
According to MapQuest, these addresses are all close together. I assume
that the family was possibly living in the same area in 1910 unless they
had already moved to E. University. Here are my questions:
1. What was the name of this part of St. Paul in the late 1800s and early
1900s--specifically in 1910? i.e., the Robert St, Temperance St, and 14th
St area? (I may have seen a recent reference to "the Market Area" but don't
know if this was the name a century ago. )
Why do I need to know this? I just began checking the 1910 Census. No
addresses appear on the microfilm I used during my first search. Instead,
the areas are divided by sections of town--like "Newmound" (if I remember
correctly). So far, the quality of both the handwritten entries and of the
film itself has been excellent--easy to read quickly. But I have less than a
month to go through 10 Census films plus the 1880 MN Soundex. The Twin
Cities area had lots of people back then....
Thanks to Leonard Arenson and Raymond Whitzman (possible distant
cousins), I know that my family was living at 265 E University by the time
of the 1920 Census.
2. What was the name of this section of St. Paul? Is this what is called
Maplewood?
Can anyone give me any clues about locating my relatives in any of
these Census years? (Yes, I read the hints about finding enumeration
districts, but Minnesota and Wisconsin sites are not among those cities
which the govt gave extra help for finding people. ; (
Thanks.

Re: Response time for SS-5 applica.-and applica. for a Copy ofDeath #general

hennynow
 

I have sent 4 separate applications to SSA for copies of the SS-5 form.
Response time was >from 3 weeks to 4 months. The last two requests were made
in January and I received the documents a week or so ago.

Something interesting I noticed: apparently, SSA does not cash my check
until it goes to work on my application. So, when I noticed this month that
my last two checks were cashed, I knew I was going to hear >from them, and
that's what happened!

Re: University of Zurich Students, 1833-1910 #general

Daniel Teichman <106607.620@...>
 

Recently the website of the University of Zurich with records of the
students between 1833-1910 was mentioned on this list a few times.

Let me add that this big work was done by the former archivist of the state
of Zurich, Dr. Helfenstein, who happens to be a good friend of the present
president of the Swiss Society for Jewish Genealogy, Raymond Jung.

Dr. Helfenstein is very interested in receiving additional informations
about the people mentioned in these records. I am myself interested in the
history of medicine and for that purpose, but also for genealogical
questions people asked me, I found many data in that source. On the other
hand I was then able to give Dr. Helfenstein additional informations, which
he included on the website again (see f.i. Moses Leman Bloch, David
Farbstein and his wife Betty Farbstein-Ostersetzer). So if anyone has
something to add, I will be happy to receive the data and forward it to Dr.
Helfenstein. This will help both researchers in the history of medicine and
genealogy to find even better sources in the future.

Best regards to all

Re: FHL Mogilev records #general

Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

Hi!

I experienced the same thing. I figgered the records would be in Russian,
but also figgered I'd be able to find the right record by the fond and index
numbers. Wrong.

The first time around, I copied Death records instead of Birth records <g>.
They're all on the same microfilm.

You can go to a library or bookstore, find a Russian-English Dictionary, and
copy the words for Father, Mother, Paternal, Maternal, Birth, Nativity, etc.
Then you can match them up to the microfilm pages. Once you find the right
section, you can copy those pages with your relative's number on them. Then
you can get someone to translate the specific records.

There are a couple of previous postings on the Birth Records: Search the
appropriate archives for the following:
