Re: divorce records in NYC #general

ELIAS SAVADA
 

These are the *City Clerk* marriages that I mentioned on the list
recently. These marriage documents provide much more detail than the
Dept. of Health ones and, yes, for couple where one of the spouse's
earlier marriages ended in divorce, the detail is quite fascinating.

These include (when answered)
Full name of (first spouse) and if they living or dead.
For divorced people, when and where and against whom was divorce or
annulment or dissolution granted. This would cite date of divorce,
court and city where it was filed.
Where did you live last with (your previous) spouse.
Grounds of the divorce or annulment.

These marriage applications *cannot* be requested by mail, but are
available in a separate cabinet at the Municipal Archives. These records
have been very helpful and often reveal new information.

Re: Eger Family Association #general

Agmon Chava and Hugo
 

To Jgenner Irene
Just to update you , Akiva EGER died in his kibbutz on
April 25 2001 . As far as I know.his son was not too keen to take over >from
his father. I don't know whether he did or if someone else in the Eger
Association took over Akiva's task.
As for an address,all I can offer is:

The Archive -Archion Kibbutz
Netzer Sereni, 70395
Israel.

I think Akiva's wife may still live there,and be able to assist the
archivist in directing to the most suitable person/s.
I hope this might help a bit.

June Brumer <jlbrumer@...>
 

Have any of you traveled to your towns using local guides? I am interested
in going to Szcuczyn and Lutowiska in Poland, with my daughters, and wonder
if any of you can recommend a way to do this. Szcuczyn is east of Warsaw,
and Lutowiska is east of Krakow. each about a 3-4 hour drive. I would also
like to know if anyone has worked with a travel agency which sets up
organized tours to these areas. Any help and information would be much
appreciated. Please reply to me at jlbrumer@...

The images are there for any of the ships that I looked at. My only
complaint is that they were not scanned with sufficient resolution to
make all of the details readable (the prints I have >from microfilm

Re: Looking for information on family's last name LARCH [or LORCH] #germany

buckidstein@...
 

The Jews of Lorch were buried on the cemetery of Alsbach (south of Frankfurt
a. M. and Darmstadt). It is the largest and one of the best preserved Jewish
cemeteries in Hessen. 14 Jewish communities buried their dead here, and 2124
headstones still exist. A very informative documentation was published in
2001 by the Kommission fuer die Geschichte der Juden in Hessen: Hartmut
Heinemann and Christa Wiesner, Der juedische Friedhof in Alsbach an der
Bergstrasse.

The oldest headstone for a Jew of Lorsch is for (translation of Hebrew text):
Simon, son of the honorable Mr Jehuda of blessed memory, called Simon (the
German translation here adds the word von, meaning of) LORSCH.
He died May 9,1705.
It was only in the 19th century that LORCH became a family name. The
pronunciation in the regional dialect was the same for both spellings:
at the end like "fish". There are ten stones with this name, starting with
Jitro (Mordechai) Lorch, son of the deceased Jakob Lorch, died 04.02.1874,
age 70; and ending with: Jakob Lorch, died 01.08.1928.

Portsmouth UK Synagogue Picture #unitedkingdom

Richard Cooper <ricooper@...>
 

I have just come across this picture in the online Jewish Encyclopedia
http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/images.jsp?artid=463&letter=P&imgid=1558
As a fourth-generation member of Portsmouth and Southsea Hebrew
Congregation I would be most interested in knowing the name of
the artist and where this painting is now.
The caption states: 'Interior of Synagogue at Portsmouth, England.
(>from a painting in the possession of Dr. H. Pereira Mendes, New York.)'
I deduce that this is Rabbi Dr.Henry Pereira Mendes, minister
of Shearith Israel Congregation, NY, NY, native of Birmingham, UK,
who died in October 1937 aged 85.
By the clothes, I would date the painting to the 1840s.
The mahogany Aron ha-Kodesh and its surround are still in our
present-day synagogue.
I would love to see and maybe buy a high quality colour reproduction
or print of this painting
