Re: SSNs in California Death Index #general

I wrote yesterday:

I found a relative recently in the California Death Index.
The Social Security number listed for this person was
her late husband's SSN. Is this normal in the CADI?
This was my first search in the CADI.
After reading a number of replies sent to me (I have not yet read the
daily digest), I realized that I had omitted a piece of information.
The SSDI record for this person has **her own** SSN. Her husband died
in 1963, and she died in 1993, so it is possible that she did not
have her own SSN when her husband died, but she did get her own in
the 30 years after her husband's death. But this does not explain why
her entry in the CADI has her husband's SSN.

Gusberg son/Hartford Hosp. #general

Peter Mc Cue <peter19252000@...>
 

Subject: missing brother

Dear Listers:
Seeking info on a baby boy born in Hartford, CT., probably in 1918 who was
given the name: Solomon GUSBERG. He was an inmate in the Municipal Hospital
and Alms House in Hartford in the 1920 census with many others all wit :
"mothers unknown". My mother Clara, was the only GUSBERG in CT. at that time
and the child was probably hers but the CT. Vital Records refuses to release
any info on this child suggesting to me that he was adopted and may be my
half brother. I have written to everyone who I thought could help including
Sen. Liberman to no avail. Can anyone help me? I am of advancing age and
declining health so can't perform my own on-site research.

Are they really adopted? #general

Jeff Blustein
 

Recently [name of commercial genealogy site deleted --Mod.] made available
some state birth indeces. During the course of compiling my genealogy
project I've been told that some of the distant relatives were adopted.
When I entered relevant surnames into the California birth index I was
surprised to find that certain individuals who I was told were adopted
had the mother's maiden name of the family line that I'm researching.

Does this mean that in fact they are true blood relatives? Can an adoptive
mother get her name on a birth certificate in lieu of the actual birth
mother?

Barry and Group:

I cannot answer specifically re: the California Death Index. But chances
are the information was taken >from the death certificate. Before her
death, your relative was probably receiving Social Security wife's or
widow's benefits, having not worked long enough under Social Security to
qualify for retirement benefits based on her own work. Her Social
Security claim number would have been her husband's number with a B or D
subscript at the end. If she died in 1966 or later, that number would
have been on her Medicare card. If she never worked under Social
Security herself and died before about the late 1970s (the exact date
could probably be checked on the Social Security website, www.ssa.gov -
there's a history section), she may never have had her own Social
Security number. Eventually all Social Security beneficiaries were
assigned numbers, but that was not the case until about that time. The
relatives who gave the information for the death certificate often
assumed that the claim number was the person's own Social Security number
- even if the person did have a number of her own.

Yiddish, Russian or Spanish translation needed #general

Alice Josephs
 

I have a correspondent in Argentina who has very little English. She
tells me she can speak Yiddish, Russian and Spanish. Is there anybody
out there who can kindly translate an email >from English into any of
these languages? I think she may be related to me but she is almost
certainly related to another elderly Holocaust survivor I have been in
touch with and I am trying to make connections.

I'd be very grateful for any help anyone can give me!

urgent etiquette question #france

Dottie Miller
 

Please help me ASAP with a question of French (specifically
Strasbourgoise) etiquette. What is proper to send to a bereaved family
the day of the funeral? Does one send flowers to the cemetery? If this
isn't possible, what else can be done? This family is not observant but
has deep roots in their city and many friends. I was thinking of having
some pastry or something sent to their home for the day of the funeral
which is tomorrow.


Thank you in advance,

Let me throw a fly in the ointment.
My SOLOMONS and SALLYS were originally ZAZULIAS
who changed their names (or had them changed) on
their arrival to the US. Was your family always
SOLOMON?

Family SENIOR-HENRIQUEZ - 17th Cent. - Venice - #general

JJL <jlandau@...>
 

Our earliest known male ancestor was Philippe HENRIQUEZ alias Jeudah SENIOR
(1589-1654). Philippe and his brother Alfonso Henriquez alias David Senior
came to Amsterdam >from Venice, where they had lived in the years +/-
1610-1616. In 1616 Philippe married Esther PIMENTEL in Amsterdam.

Philippe and Alfonso's mother was Violante Pimentel, but their father
remains a mystery. Some (e.g. Studia Rosenthaliana, Vol.12, p.173) maintain
that he was a Mordechai ABENIACAR who died in Constantinople.

The name Abeniacar was, however the alias name of the family Pimentel, also
in Venice at the time before moving to Amsterdam themselves. The problem is
that Violante's brother Garcia Pimentel also had the alias name Mordechai
Abeniacar. So there is confusion.

Can anyone throw further light on the person who was Violante Pimentel's
husband and/or father of Philippe and Alfonso Henriquez-Senior? They were
Marranos >from Spain, but when, and >from where, did they come to Venice?

Many thanks in advance. Our e-mail address is f.krenz@bluewin.ch.
