Now this interests me! My mmggparents were said to have a Lithuanian
ancestor whom they termed a, 'food minister for the government'. I have
assumed that this was a rough English translation and it brings to mind such
a middleman as Laura describes. I would like to know if this position had a
specific native name, and if there might be records pertaining to such a
position.

Princes and Jews #belarus

Zalman Lachman, C.S.W. <zalman@...>
 

I am named for my paternal grandfather Zalman Peretz (HaCohen) LACHMAN who
came to the US in 1887 with his father Joseph Chaim LACHMAN. They had lived
in a village called Szarkhovshina (then Russian Empire) today in Belarus.
The village was owned by a 'pan' which is what I was told the 'lord of the
manor' was called. My father told me that his father (age 9) remembered in
vivid and revolting detail seeing his father kneel and kiss the hand of the
pan in order to get permission to emigrate.

The landed gentry were called "magnates" and were often princes and counts
and other kinds of lesser nobility. After the Czar took over this region
(1795-ish), many Jews performed the same services for the Russian nobility
who had simply exchanged places with their Polish peers.

Dear all,

At http://www.hot-maps.de/index.html you will find an
excellent site which features detailed city and town maps
all around the world. It has a search engine and maps can be
zoomed and printed. A real jewel.

Caveat 1: the site is in German, but it's very easy to navigate,
just click the pull down menu marked "Karte Wahlen" and then
choose the place you are interested in. Searching is a breeze.

Caveat 2: the site features just a limited number of places,
mainly in the US. The majority of maps refers to Germany.

Enjoy
Tom

Re: Wife's Naturalization #general

This discussion reminds me of several previously on this list,
which led me to the list archives. There I found some
information I posted on the topic last year as well as
other helpful emails. Below are some exerpts >from the
archives which were found by searching "Naturalization of Women."

Subject: Important Dates To Assist Your Research

As pointed out in a previous email to this list - State and Federal laws
in the U.S. may have an impact on your genealogy research. Knowing a
bit about these laws can be of assistance in the locating your
ancestors. Therefore, here are a few notable historical facts that may
impact the direction you choose:

1890's: For many years numerous states did not allow women legal
decision making for her children.

1891: Office of Immigration established.

1893: The husband owned whatever wages his wife earned in "about" 1/4
of the states. Numerous states did not allow women legal decision
making for her children.

1906: Establishment of the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization
which began the requirement of aliens being registered.

1907: Expatriation Act impacted women who had U.S. citizenship. This
resulted in women marrying an alien becoming the Nationality of her spouse.
Taking it a bit further - A woman who was a U.S. citizen and married an alien
automatically lost her U.S. citizenship. Once married she was a
citizen of whatever country her husband was from. This is better
known as the Expatriation Act of 1907 - 34 Statue. 1228 ss 3.
The government repealed the act around 1922. Unfortunately,
many women didn't regain their U.S. citizenship until 1936 or after.

1914: The Homestead Act of 1862 was ammended. The ammendment allows
women who marry immigrants to retain her "entry" citizenship if her
spouse is eligible for citizenship. Over 2,000,000 Poles had settled in
the United States. More than 3,000,000 Russians, about half of whom
were Jewish, had arrived in the United States by 1914.

1920: Women who have spouses that are German citizens that had their
property confiscated may reclaim said property based on restrictions.

1921-1924: Immmigration Act stipulates that there will be quotas for
immigrants based on their national origin.

The "Cable Act" of 1922 allows women over 21 independent citizenship and
"Derivative Citizenship' is discontinued (42 Statue. 1022 ss4).
The U.S. government put limitations and restrictions on women entering
the U.S. in 1917. These limitations and restrictions were known
as the "Federal Immigration Act." In short, any unmarried women and
her kids constantly excluded >from entry into America for fear of
moral turpitude. The U.S. government felt unmarried women would
become a burden to the welfare system. Single females were allowed
to enter only if they had a sponsor in this country, and a male
sponsor (relative)was preferred. The alien had to submit proof in
writing they had a sponsor. The female, to include children
would be detained until a sponsor claimed them. If they weren't
claimed they would be deported. Women meeting prospective and/or
future spouses often had the marriage ceremony performed at Castle
Garden or Ellis Island to prove they weren't being brought to America
for prostitution purposes.

1929: Congress makes annual immigration quotas permanent.

Sources for the above include:
"The National Archives and Records Administration," "Going to America by Terry Coleman," History Central web site," "Rutgers History Department," "INS History web site," "The
Hidden Half of the Family by Rebecca Schaefer," "Immigrant Arrivals: A Guide To Published Sources compiled by Virginia Steele Wood" National Park Service web site "Castle Clinton" and "The Library of Congress."

Subject: Re: Wife's Naturalization

By 1927, a wife was no longer naturalized automatically with her husband. i
don't remember the year that changed, but it was in the early 20's -- before
1923. She would have been naturalized separately. In the mid-1940s (during
WWII), a law was passed which simplified naturalization for spouses of US
citizens (including those who had been naturalized). There was apparently a
rush of wife naturalizations at that time.

Dear Genners,
Can anyone help me find material on Max Rosenbaum
who was born to Chazzan Rosenbaum and Malka nee Levy about 1870-80
in Schwerin an der Warthe. I believe that is now
Skwierzyne Poland.Spelling may be off.
None of the family know if he survived the Holocaust,
or perhaps went to US or Italy. In a letter to a cousin in the
1890's he talks about working his way up the business ladder
and maybe going to Italy for this.He apparently had a sister.
Supposedly his mother born in 1860's probably, was a
doctor. She was born in Poland.
Except for the letter the rest is hearsay.
Thank you
