Re: Cruise marriage #general

Joan Parker <joanparker@...>
 

Trudy,
Depends on your time frame of reference.

I worked on cruise ships for years, long time ago. In today's world the few
weddings we had on board were held while still at the dock performed by a rabbi
or a minister and therefore registered in Miami, FL. One ship I worked on was
in the BVIs and the minister >from Tortola came on board and performed the
ceremony so it was registered in Tortola, BVI. I would mark it cruise ship (if
you know the name) docked at such and such a port.

It is a fallacy that marriage on board by the captain is valid....well,it is
valid, but only for the duration of the cruise. :-) However, there is always
an exception: to be valid the captain must have the authority to perform weddings
such as the captain on the Grand Princess. Other captains do not.

Having said all that: For immigrants I do believe that it was legal as well as
expedient for immigration purposes because then the captain had the authority to
perform marriages on board.

The function of the vital statistics office of a jurisdiction is to record
life events that occur in that jurisdiction; that's clear >from the name of
the office. Something that happened elsewhere in the world, or on a cruise
ship not located in the jurisdiction, in an aircraft (with the same
qualification), or aboard a space shuttle to another planet or distant
galaxy, did not occur in the jurisdiction in which the vital statistics
office operates, therefore would not be recorded there.

But ships keep logs by law, and so do aircraft and, no doubt, spacecraft. If
a marriage is performed on board, if a passenger dies, or if a child is
born, the event is recorded in the log.

Re: ukraine digest: June 10, 2005 #ukraine

m.solman@...
 

re GASNA

I would guess the spelling of the first name JOJNA is some version of Yonah
(Yoina -- Yiddish pronounciation) all for the name Jonah -- as we commonly know
it.

Mel Solman

The ship manifest said they left behind in
russia a son, whose first name was JOJNA. i have
searched the jewishgen given names database and get no
hits on this name. does anyone else have male family
members >from russia with this or a similar first
name?if so, what was the hebrew/yiddish equivalent?
also what were they called if they immigreated to
america?

please respond privately.

Special event in NYC #germany

EllnKahn@...
 

Dear Renee,

I was very pleased to read your message on GerSig yesterday and have
forwarded the information via email to friends and family who might be
interested (and who live in the NYC area).

You have put the GerSig website to a great use, that of transmitting items of
special interest to those of us with a German Jewish background.

Hopefully we will hear of such events taking place in various other cities.
[MOD NOTE - GERMAN Jewish topic meetings only - Non commercial meetings only.
Other restrictions may apply also.]
With the advent of email, we can reach out to each other much faster.

Re: The name KOPELBERG #germany

Yekkey@...
 

Hi Alex,
The name KOPELBERG is probably a disguised patronym for the name Kopel, which
is a kinui for Ya'akob or Jacob.

If you wish to know what a disguised patronym or a kinui is please write to
me privately at <<yekkey@aol.com.>>

Roots4 #general

eg11@...
 

Does anyone out there have a copy of the old Roots4 program? I'm one of those
dinasours still using Roots3. I purchased the Roots4 program many years ago
(still have the box and manual but can't find the CD/disks). I'm planning to
convert to a new program and need Roots4 to do so. Can anyone help me? Any
idea where I can get it?

descendants of Gussie and Peter MEYER #general

Shari Kantrow
 

Dear JewishGenners,
I am always amazed at what a helpful and caring
community and forum this is, and how many questions
are answered, and how many puzzles are solved here
weekly.
Perhaps the descendants of Gussie and Peter MEYER
are reading this. They had nine children altogether:
five children who died as teens or sometime in their
childhood, and four grown children: Celia, abt 1887,
Abe abt. 1882, Joseph 1895 and my grandfather Samuel,
1893. They all died fairly young, but some of them
went on to have children of their own.
1.Joseph married Ella and had Gussie Rose, Leah
and Celia (named afther his deceased sister). Celia
had 4 daughters
2.Abraham married Florence(?) and had Irene(?)
and Clifford(?)
3.Celia (1887) may have married, but she died
prior to about 1935-40.

I would love to correspond with anyone who is
related, or who may know these people. Many thanks
again for all you do.
Warmest regards,

More on Australian Connections.

From: Adele Meren < madele@rabbit.com.au >

As I've had lots of request for help [ and I'm happy to help you ], I
thought I'd save you all some time with the following short cuts:
If you go to the the Australian Jewish News [AJN] web site at
< www.ajn.com.au > and click on their 'web links' column on the left,
then select 'local,' it will lead you to pretty much all of the Jewish
links around Australia.
Remember, if you see a phone number, you'll need to check out the area
code that you should dial before the actual number, as we have 6 large
states and 2 territories [like a state, including our federal capital],
each with a unique phone area code. Here they are for you all:

Victoria and Tasmania [including Melbourne and Hobart] 3, New South
Wales and the ACT [including Sydney and Canberra] 2, Queensland
[including Brisbane] 7, South Australia, Western Australia and the
Northern Territory [including Adelaide, Perth and Darwin] 8.

So, if dialling Melbourne for example, you'd dial 61 [Australia] then 3
[Victoria/Melbourne], then the actual phone number.

Hope this helps.

Melbourne, Australia.
