Mt. Zion Cemetery, Maspeth, NY #general

Dear Genners:

from time to time there are requests for some kind genner to
go to Mt. Zion in Maspeth and take a photo of a gravestone.

I suggest to contact the cemetery directly. They will take photos
and send them to you. Last time there was a $10 charge,
well worth it as the photos are clear and concise. If you ask
they will also send you copies of the burial cards in their
file, no charge. At least that was the way it was last year.
Contact: KarenG@mountzioncemetery.com

19th Century Marriages in London Synagogues #general

harold lewin <har_mir@...>
 

Those researching 19th century London marriages may be unaware of an
important additional information source. While it is generally known that
the Genealogical Society of Utah, now known as the (LDS) Family History
Library, executed microfilm records of marriage registers >from several
London synagogues in March 1949, many researchers are unaware of two
microfilms that contain photographs of almost 5000 marriage certificates
corresponding with records in the marriage registers of the Great Synagogue,
London over the period
1837-1879. In a compilation of 8,000 Great Synagogue
Marriages for the period 1791-1885 (currently being printed), information
in the marriage certificate, e.g. addresses & ages of groom & bride, has
been combined with marriage register information, e.g. patronymics, previous
marital status of bride & groom, info. on groom/bride conversion and also
sometimes names of minor synagogues where the marriage took place. The
resulting compilation, comprising two sections of records sorted by a) groom
and b) bride, provides much more data on each marriage for the specific
period covered by the two microfilms. While the Hambro Synagogue marriage
registers often provide addresses of groom and bride, the address is lacking
in most of the Great Synagogue marriage records. Therefore the addition of
address (albeit for period 1837-1879 only) constitutes valuable information
often leading to the census record. The relevant LDS films are Nos. 94661 &
94662 and the document Nos are Vols. 118 & 119.

Re: from house numbers to street numbers in Warsaw #poland

Hadassah Lipsius <kesher@...>
 

Rose asks about the street numbers:

What a perfect way to remind everyone about the homeowner list that was
prepared by the Warszawa Research Group volunteers.

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/WarszawaHomeowners.htm


It currently contains the homeowners list for 1852, 1867 and 1869.

The number that Rose sees on the records is actually the plot number. I
know that as a homeowner in New York, my house has a plot number which
has no relationship to my house address. This is the same way.

In Warszawa every plot number has a corresponding street name and
address. If you know the plot number then you can identify the
corresponding house address but using the database at the website linked
above.

One of the examples that Rose gave was plot number 2355. I searched the
database but putting in "2355" and then selected search by "Global Text
all fields", I receive the following results.

In the 1852 list, number 2355 shows it was owned by Antoni NONIEWICZ it
was on Pawia Street in district 6 but no house number was listed.

In the 1869 list, number 2355 shows it was owned by Szmul WAJSCHELFISZ
it was at 18 Pawia Street in district 6/7.

In the 1870 list, number 2355 shows it was owned by S. WAJCHSELFISZ it
was at 18 Pawia Street in district 6/7.

The Warszawa Research Group is currently working on the 1864 homeowners
list and then it was owned by Wolf ORENSZTEIN

Re: from house numbers to street numbers in Warsaw #poland

Bill Celmaster <bill.celmaster@...>
 

On LDS film 1183685 there are two "records" (sections) corresponding to the
1869 and 1870 Warsaw directories respectively. These are sections #5 and
#6. In the 1869 directory, towards the end of the directory is a section
which is arranged by house number. The number appears (in numerical order)
in the left column, followed by the district, and then the street name and
number and finally the owner of the place. The 1870 directory has a similar
section, except that it is arranged by street name (and so you can find
house number if you know street name). If I remember correctly, there is a
sequence of headings in alphabetical order, with each heading being a street
name. Then the street address appears in the left column followed by the
house number, then the owner and the district. The 1870 directory also
includes an alphabetized list of Warsaw residents, including occupation.
The 1869 directory is organized rather differently and I've found to be less
useful.
