Re: Legitimate or illegitimate child #galicia

Mark Halpern <willie46@...>
 

Lilian:

In the Austrian Empire during this period, a person's birth
record served as a record of change in civil status for that
individual. In subsequent years, the birth record would be used
to record the death of the person, the civil marriage of the
person, the civil marriage of the person's parents if the person
was born illegitimate (parents marriage not registered with civil
authorities), an official name change, or any other event that
changed the persons legal/civil status. The note on Serl Race
MISCHEL was such a note.

Many parents were married in religious ceremonies which were not
registered with the State. In many cases, when they or their
children were ready to emigrate, a second marriage ceremony would
take place. This ceremony was performed by the Rabbi who had been
authorized by the State to perform civil marriages. Since
Galician Jews viewed marriage as a religious event, not a civil
event, there was no stigma to be considered unmarried by the
State. My Galician great-grandparents and grandparents were
married in a civil ceremonies in 1898, many years after having
their children.

If your aunt's parents did not have a civil marriage, then her
legal Surname was that of her mother. To change her Surname to
her father's surname required a change in civil status. I have
never seen a note such as the one written on your aunt's birth
records, but I would assume that your aunt petitioned the
authorities to change her Surname for official purposes (most
likely for the Passport). I cannot tell if the petition was
approved. I imagine it is up to the authorities or the courts to
decide whether to allow the use of the father's surname in cases
where the parents never registered a civil marriage.

Dear Genners,
On the birth record of my aunt Serl Race MISCHEL dated 1894, the is a
note stating: "following instructions >from Stanislawow dated 7/3/1930,
and the recommendation of the office >from Stryj >from April 8, 1930, it
is noted that the child is of intramarital origin....."

My question is:
1) Why was this note written in 1930 on the Birth Record dated 1894?
2) Was it because my aunt needed to obtain the Passport and therefore
as my grandfather was dead by 1930 a civil marriage could not take place
and therefore she could not legitimate her birth?
Would appreciate any comments that would help me understand this.

Thank you in advance,

Ship manifests: Havana to Key West #general

The passenger manifests >from the port of Miami were recently transferred
to the National Archives in Washington, DC. I would guess that manifests
from Key West were transferred at the same time. I suggest Tracie should
go to the NARA website where there is a facility for sending email
requests for information to NARA staff. Ask if they can send a copy of
the passenger manifest. I think it is necessary to specify a date, not
just the year. Since Tracy knows the year, port and ship it would appear
she can find the date. (To find the date, one can look for a stamp in the
ancestor's passport or look for the naturalization papers or look on the
ancestor's alien registration form.)

Re: Jewish community of Scotland #unitedkingdom

Thank you dear Harold for your reply.

I made a mistake and wrote BCE where it should have been CE :-))

I have a theory which I would like to find material to establish, that the
Romans searched for far away places to bring the rebels, and the most far
places were Portugal, and Britain. While we know of Jewish community that
still exist in Portugal, although they were hidden until recently, we only
know about Scotland that the free masons had started their existence after
the "pogroms" which were taken against the Templars, by the king of France
and the Catholic church.
The Templars ways seems very much like the ways of the "Maranos" and other
"Hidden Jewish communities", and there appear a question, that maybe the few
ships of Templars, who managed to escape >from France, found their
destination in Scotland, and were helped by "hidden Jews" who were living
there under disguise since the time that they were forced to leave Ilia
Capitolina...
Maybe the Templars were helped by "Hidden Jews" >from the beginning, since
the 11th century CE, when they needed money to establish their fortresses
all around Israel, and maybe there were Jewish people who saw in the
connection, a way of bringing the Jews back to Israel...
Later, the connections may had lead to mutual banking system, between the
Templars and the "Hidden Jews" [which may had lived also in Scotland]...
I have no tools yet to find any solid base to my argument, but I'm sure that
if we'll find a way of searching the Free Masons of the 14th century CE, we
might be surprised and maybe even get a new source for our genealogy
research...

Best wishes,

never been my "mother tongue",
I think Hebrew and write English
words associatively, so try to forgive
my mistakes, and understand my

Brest-Litovsk, Russia his Surname would have been written in Cyrillic.
Then when he came to the United States his Surname would have been
transliterated into Latin.

How would the Surname BINEMBAUM have been written in Cyrillic?

Thanks again. Any help or suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

Jewish physicians in the Kaiser's army #general

Werner Cohn <wernerco@...>
 

I am trying to find out something about the typical military careers of
Jewish physicians in the Kaiser's army during WWI.

My father, Dr. James Cohn, was born in 1886 in Berlin and became a
physician in Berlin in 1910. He entered the Kaiser's army as a volunteer
in 1914, I believe, and served on the front as a medical officer until
the end of the war. I have a picture of him in military uniform dating
from this period:
http://www.wernercohn.com/family_pictures.html

I have recently tried to look at his military record, but >from what
various official and unofficial sources have told me, all such records
were destroyed in 1945 in an air raid.

So, not being able to find out about his military record directly, I would
be interested in what others may have learned about the military careers
of other Jewish medical officers in that period. Most particularly, I
would be interested in looking at whatever literature there may be on the
subject.

Many thanks for any help you could offer.

Searching for fate of family from Nizhniye Veretski, CZ #general

Felicia P. Zieff <tzippy_chs@...>
 

My grandmother, RECHTER, Debora was born in Nizhnye Veretzki,
Czechoslovakia in 1912. Her parents were RECHTER, Jozef and
FISCHER, Rosa. I have been looking for many years for any
information about what happened to her parents and siblings
who were in this town when the Nazis invaded. The Nazis
deported the residents of this town to a death camp in 1944,
but I don't know which one. Before the war, this town was part
of Czechoslovakia, during the war it became part of Hungary,
currently it is in the Ukraine.

What I am specifically looking for are Transport Lists or
other documents that have my great-grandparents and their adult
children's names on them. If these do not exist, then any
documents that state the deportation date and destination of the
residents of this town. I know this is not an easy request.
Any help this group can provide would be most appreciated.
Below is all the information I know about this town.
