Help in Strasbourg, Please #general

Painter <painter@...>
 

Dear Genners,

In April I was able to spend a few hours in Strasbourg where I was able
to obtain a few Civil Census records. However it looks like I have
missed a page. I have both called and written several times - even
enclosed a few dollars for postage, etc - but have gotten but one
response saying that they do not do genealogy research but can access
civil records. Well no records have appeared as of yet.

Is there someone willing to go the the Archives for me(I think it was
rue L'hospital) and find me the missing page?

If so, please write me privately and I will supply the names and what I
have already gathered.

Thanking all in advance,

Looking for Address of San Francisco Committee For Service To Emigres #general

Uri Jakubovic
 

Aug. 30, 2003

My late uncle Tibor JAKUBOVIC (>from Revuca, Slovakia) received a letter
from February 27, 1940 >from ***San Francisco Committee For Service To
Emigres***. It said that committee cannot sign the necessary affidavits of
support and cannot find anyone willing to sign for a non-relative.

Two or three years later my uncle perished in the Holocaust.

I wonder if this "San Francisco Committee For Service To Emigres" still
exists. If so, what is its current postal address or e-mail address? I
would like to try to locate my uncle's letter to that Commitee.

By the way, the address of that Committee in 1940 was 1600 Scott Street,
San Francisco.

Thank you very much.

Meaning of name:Aufrichter #general

Annie-France Aufrychter
 

Dear Genners,
An "aufrichter",in current German ,is a setting up machine; I can imagine
that it was the occupation of somebody building or setting up something .
But I wonder if it couldn't also relate to some religious rite ?
-(In any case,I'm incredibly proud of my surname!)-
For your possible answer,many thanks in advance...

derivative citizenship #general

SBSeales
 

Dear Genners,
My grandfather Ben ROSENTHAL was naturalized in Canada in 1920. His son
Adolph is listed on the back of the certificate (and in the National
Archives of Canada naturalizations list)as a minor child.
Did wives obtain derivative citizenship in Canada when there husbands
were naturalized? My grandmother's name is on my grandfather's
certificate as his wife, but she does not appear in the Archive list of
naturalizations. Did she have to apply separately?

Thanks,

On my grandmother's tombstone next to her surname is another word in
capital letters 'ayin hay'. Would someone please tell me what this
means.

Look more closely, and you will see a double apostrophe between the
two letters. This is an abbreviation: " 'Aleha Hashalom" (="Peace be
upon her"), equivalent to "RIP". It's rare anymore, except in the
Diaspora.

Ipswich #unitedkingdom

Jon Myers <jemyers@...>
 

For years I have been looking without success for an expert on the 18th
century Jews of Ipswich. My ggg-grandmother Betsy Isaacs Solomons Joseph
was born there c.1791, as was supposedly her father, my gggg-grandfather
Israel (Asher) Isaacs (c.1735-1837). Yes, his DC lists his age as 102. He
is buried in Portsmouth, where he lived, and at the end of the London 2001
Conference I went there (thanks to Richard Cooper and Henry Roche) and
visited his grave. Betsy listed Ipswich on the 1851 census return. Is
anyone aware of this Ipswich family?

Pittsburgh Jewish Cemetery Project - THANKS! #germany

Connie Fisher Newhan
 

I want to take a moment to thank fellow genner Robert and the efforts of
the Pittsburgh Jewish Cemetery Project for finding and sending me images
of tombstones belonging to several family members buried at West View
Cemetery in Pittsburgh. I had tried twice to deal directly with West View
to 'purchase' these photos. Both times I was told they would be in the
mail within days! Needless to say, I never received the photos. A while
back I noticed a posting about the Pittsburgh Jewish cemetery project and
wrote to Robert. Yesterday, he emailed me images of all the headstones.

Robert is a volunteer for the Pittsburgh Jewish cemetery project and tells
me he and his wife have recorded about 3000 to 4000 tombstones in the last
two years. They have more than 20,000 more tombstones to do in Pittsburgh
and there are only four field volunteers for the project. (They also need
data entry clerks). If anyone is interested in volunteer information,
please email me and I will forward your note on to Robert.

Robert's generousity reminded me that I needed to renew my annual Jewish
Gen contribution, which I just did. I have received so much help from
this fabulous group, it seemed like a small way to say thanks. Keep the
projects going and the research coming! Best regards,
