"C/N/E" on denied naturalization petition #general

Debra Price <dsprice@...>
 

Received a copy of a Petition for Naturalization >from the Supreme Court of
New York County. There is a section called "Order of Court Denying
Petition" that reads: "Upon consideration of the petition of [name of
petitioner] and the motion of [C/N/E] for the United States in open Court
this [10 day of April 1924] it appearing that [Immoral Character] the said
petition is hereby denied." Words in brackets are filled in by hand; the
balance is preprinted. I would like to know what the abbreviation C/N/E
stands for.

searching ROZENSZTEJN from Przasnysz (a new clue--LEYWANDT) #general

Marty Meyers <meyers01@...>
 

I have been searching, with a singular lack of success, for the roots of
my great-great-grandmother,
Chai Sura (nee ROZENSZTEJN) ZYLBERMAN, wife of Juda Lejb Z in
Przasnysz. Unlike most records where I find only the wife's father's first
name, here I only find her surname at birth. The only other information
is that family lore says that she was originally >from Janowa. While
there are numerous towns with that name in Poland, in Shtetl Finder Gazeteer,
the only one nearby is located north of Mlawa
at 5307 2023, which is near Przasnsyz and Chorzele where the ZYLBERMAN
lived for generations.
No sign of Chaia Sura's birth, marriage, or death have been found to
date, although some Mlawa records still remain unindexed. Numerous records
exist for the birth of her children in Przasnysz.

Today, I finally got around to checking out the ROZENSZTEJN records that
do exist in Przasnysz and found an interesting clue. In 1853, Abram Hersz
ROZENSZTEJN, son of Joska and Ruchel z Joskow
married Judes LEYWANDT, daughter of Juda Jzraelowicz and Dyna LEYWANDT.
They had three children, Fajga Perla, Szaja Mosiek and Hana Ester (who died at
age 1) that I know of >from Przasnysz records.

The interesting clue is that, according to his marriage record, Abram
Hersz ROZENSZTEJN was born in (insert drum roll here) Janowa! So, he is
likely related to Chaia Sura and may even be her brother.

If anyone has information on ROZENSZTEJN or LEYWANDT, please contact me

LAZARSFELD #austria-czech

I wonder if anyone recognises the name LAZARSFELD. I have just discovered a Hugo
LAZARSFELD (aka Hugh WARNER) who was witness at the re-marriage of my g-grandparents
Rudolph HNILICEK and Amalia VON GERLACH, who also took on the new surname WARNER.
They all seemed to come >from Vienna about 1884 or 6. These people had registry
office re-marriages in the UK to achieve name changes. The Hniliceks seem to trace
to Amschelberg Familianten.

Dear Robert,
The nearest archive to Boskovice is the State district archive Blansko
Komenskeho 9, 678 01 Blansko
podatelna@...

There is even its detached department directly in Boskovice
Velenova 3, 680 01 Boskovice.

Another option is to contact Prague Jewish Museum which might store collection
of records on Boskovice Jewish Community 1640-1949.

Good luck!

Re: Meaning of the name FRIEDMAN #general

Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

While these answers may apply to the real meaning of FRIEDMAN, as usual
there will be those families for whom the name indeed meant "freed
man". My great-aunt was a FREEDMAN before she married my
great-uncle. >from her directly I got the story that when her own father
landed in England, his cousin greeted him with the phrase,
"Congratulations! You're a freed man now!" And they took the name. Their
European surname, which I know, is nothing like FREEDMAN.

OK, her father may have been "pulling her leg", but there's no reason to
think it's not a true story.

So consider the language-related origins of the name, but remember our
forbearers weren't forced to follow any surname rules. . . .

FORMAN/GEDELOWICZ #austria-czech

ben forman <ben.forman@...>
 

Hi Guys

I'm writing to you on the off chance that you might be able to help me
out. For 7 years I've been searching for the origins of my GGPs who
arrived in England in 1899. According to family lore they came from
Poland, but according to the UK 1901 census they came >from Germany.
Then today I had an email on behalf of someone else who had family -
from Czechoslovakia - called GEDELOVICZ, so on the off chance my GGPs
were >from Czechoslovakia I typed FORMAN into the SIG archive and it came
up (evidently Milos Forman was >from Czechoslovakia).

So I have 2 questions:

1. Is it possible the German/Poland confusion of my family origins is
due to the shifting borders of europe between 1895 and 1925 and that
they could have come >from Czechoslovakia
2.Does anyone by any chance have the names Woolf FORMAN or Rebecca
GEDELOVICZ in their tree.

The only other info I have is

Woolf (Zev) Forman was born 1876 he was son of Tzvi

Rebecca Gedelowicz was born 1878 she was daughter of Abraham

I'll be grateful for any info

Thanks

Moravian Communities Documentation #austria-czech

A group of Israeli students visited Moravia during August 2004, with the
purpose of ducumenting a number of local Jewish communities. Here is a
short summary of their work, which might be of interest to many of our members:

"A Journey into the Jewish Heritage" - A Documentation of Jewish
Communities in Moravia

During August 2004, a delegation of 28 students headed out to document
Jewish sites in the Moravia region, as part of the project " A Journey into the
Jewish Heritage", which was organized by the Zalman Shazar Center and the
Avi Chai Foundation. This is the third time that the project is taking
place. Once a year, students >from a wide range of fields (architecture,
photography, history and more) are involved in this mission of bringing
alive the magnificent past of these Jewish communities abroad, of which
today, only remnants are left.
The ICOMOS association of Israel provides professional assistance for this
project.
These are the areas and sites where the group documented: the Jewish ghetto
in Boskovice, the graveyard in Breclav, synagogues which have turned into
churches and the Jewish quarter of the town Prostejov (the former –
Prosnitz).
The Students documented also the old Jewish cemetery in Mikulov (the
historical Nikelsburg) and the cemetery in the town Miruslav.
Two members of the group were involved in comparative research between the
texts that appear on the walls of some of the synagogues where we visited
and another pair of students did archival research which deals with the
development of the Jewish population the city Brno itself, starting from
1800 until the eve of the Second World War. The research was conducted
under the supervision of Professor Rudolf Klein.
In addition, more than 20 videoed interviews with the members of the Jewish
community of Brno were taken.
A festive presentation took place on Brno on the last evening of the trip.
Members of the Jewish community of Brno were invited, as well as locals and
people >from the academy interested in the Jewish tradition, along with all
those with whom the students came into contact during their work.
On November 18, 2004, a similar evening was held in the auditorium of
"Beit-Hatfutzot" in the University of Tel Aviv.

For more information - please contact me, I will forward your requests to
the project director at the Zalman Shazar center in Jerusalem.
