Aus. Hung. Verein #general

Curiousyl@...
 

During this Rosh Hashanah holiday, I set the table as always,
placing my Dad's Kiddush cup at my husband's setting. My Dad
passed away in 1977, and my Mom gave me his Kiddush cup. For the
first time since I began researching my Family Tree - I noticed
and read carefully the engraving on one side of the cup:
1st
Aus. Hung. Ferein
presented to
[my parent's names]
A Star of David is engraved on the reverse side.
Am I correct in thinking Ferein is misspelled, and probably should
be Verein, which means "organization" [while Ferein/Ferien means
"holiday"]? Does anyone have knowledge of an organization as
mentioned above?
Thank you.

My Great Grand Parents and my grand parents were >from Bialystok
and my grandmother's name was Fanja or Fania too.

It seems to be a common name.

Several days ago I posed a query about Russian-Polish names.
I was looking for the most probable religious *and* secular
names for the following:

All were born in Bialystock region:
... female: called Fania in the US

....Most correspondents suggested Feige for Fania, and I think
it most likely.

Jim Bennett asked:

My great grandfather Samuel COHN >from Wloclawek and
Pyzdry [both Poland], and later Posen Province, Prussia,
reached New York in 1898, bearing $3000.

What would be the relative value of that sum today

My grandfather listed the town of Chimsk, Russia on his immigration
documents. I have seen no mention of this town anywhere in the
"Jewishgen" pages. Does anyone have an idea of where this could be?

Re: How to research a name change? #general

Paul Silverstone
 

If your relative needed a passport he has to say when and where he
changed his name, i.e. what court, etc. My grandfather obtained a
passport in 1927 (he arrived in 1888 and changed his name in 1908).
On his application it is stated that he had his name changed in 1927
in a court in New York. Also, the application stated where he was
naturalized, in New Jersey, in 1891. I would not have guessed this.

ViewMate 1770/1771/1772 - tombstone translation requested #general

Many thanks to those of you who responded to my tombstone translation
request for Carbondale, PA. Now that I have received the little
information that gleaned >from them considering their bad condition,
I have requested that those pictures be withdrawn ViewMate.

But now I have three more tombstone pictures, with one more to follow
shortly, this time for Cong. Agudas Israel cemetery in Newburgh, NY.

The photos can be found on ViewMate
< http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html >
as follows:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/source/vm1771.html
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/source/vm1772.html

Can someone with a knowledge of Hebrew please provide the information
requested in the ViewMate description for each picture, assuming that
it is given on the stone and that it is legible. Again my sole interest
is so that I can submit the data to the JOWBR, along with the 1217 other
burials in this cemetery.

For the same reasons that I mentioned in the JewishGen Digest dated 8
Sept., I apologize that I will be unable to respond individually to

Question on naturalization #general

Leslie Weinberg <lbw@...>
 

I have been trying to locate papers for my husband's family without
success. My mother-in-law is 98, says she was always told she was
born in the U.S. but some family members say she came here as a
toddler. If she did arrive here with her parents, what wold the laws
be regarding her citizenship? I know that my husband's grandfather
was naturalized - although I have not found papers. We do not know
about his grandmother ( she did have a ss card - I sent for the
application. We could find no record of a card for his grandfather
on the SSDI).. Would his mother have had to be naturalized? Would
she automatically have become a citizen if either parent were
naturalized, and was there a time frame for that? Thanks in advance.
