Will Social Security release submitted proof of age documentation? #general

roberta rosen
 

Many people born in the early part of this
century were born at home and a birth record was
never filed. This was my mother's situation; her
early school records were accepted as proof of
age when she applied for Social Security
benefits.

I have located a family member born in Minnesota
in 1901(1910 census), however there seems to be
no birth record. I have also found him in the
SSDI, so he must have submitted some sort of
alternative proof of age documentation.

Does anyone know if Social Security will release,
under the "Freedom of Information Act," documents
such as those submitted for proof of age, along
with the usual copy of the original Social
Security application? Has anyone ever received a
copy of such documentation of age?

Re: "Mary Street" #general

Hi all,

A query recently asked if a "Mary Street" might be located in Brooklyn
Borough, NYC. There are several entries in Forgotten Streets [renamed] that
are located in lower Manhattan in Manhattan Borough . The enquirer might try
to correlate any of these with existing City Directories.



Mary Street original name of Christopher St.b/w Greenwich Ave. & Waverly PI.
Mary Street original name of Baxter St.b/w Leonard & Gr & Sts.
Mary Street original name of Clevel & PI. & Lafayette St.
b/w Broome & Prince Sts.

Vsyia Rosia for Brest Town - 1903

Posted on JewishGen at
http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/grodno/bres.htm
is a translation of the Vsyia Rosia done by Amy
Levinson in 1999.

I would like to obtain some additional information
about this Vsyia Rosia:

It makes reference to being for the ?Brest town?.
? Does this mean just the Shtetl of Brest or does it
cover a larger area?
It means the town (shtetl) itself as opposed to the district (uezd) of
which it was the main town.


Are the below listed words that appear under the
?Address? column the names of streets?
It seems to be a mix of actual addresses and descriptions of the
business located there.

? What would ?dv? be an abbreviation for?
Probably the house number. The only Belorussian dictionary I can find
online is down temporarily or permanently, but the Russian word for door
is "dver'".

? What is ?Tov? an abbreviation for?
In Russian, "tovary" means goods.
What is riad an abbreviation for?
In Russian, "riad" means row or line.
Galanteria
Haberdashery

In the Notes column there are listed some of the
below words. What do they mean?
This column seems to be the original >from which the "Occupation" column
was translated.
Muka
Flour
Chai
Tea
Knigi
Books
Manuf. Tovar
Manufactured goods

Re: adoption and conversion #general

DebWE308@...
 

Hi Genners
Has anyone ever dealt with adoption issues. A distant relative married a
women who was adopted and grew up in a Jewish Conservative home in NJ. Her
parents told her that the biological mother was Jewish. She grew up and married
my relative by a Conservative Rabbi. They have 2 children. Now when the oldest
child is to become a Bar Mitzvah, the Orthodox Rabbi is demanding proof of the
mother being Jewish. The mother's parents died when she was around 12 years old
and was then again adopted by her parents best friends. The woman never doubted
that she was Jewish. The woman was never interested in searching for her
biological mother and doesn't have any information about her. When it was
suggested that the children be converted anyway, the rabbi said that he couldn't
convert a Jew if he was Jewish already. Any suggestions about how to deal with a
situation like this?
