Negative search for grandparents' marriage certificate from NY Vital Records Dept #general

Debbie Skolnik <debskolnik@...>
 

I have hit a bit of a brick wall in my search for my
grandparents' marriage certificate in either Brooklyn
or Manhatten >from 1907-1909. Using these dates is
based on info >from the 1910 Federal census, which
indicates that they were married two years when the
census was taken.

Should I expand the years searched as well as other
locations? So far as I know, they only ever lived in
Brooklyn, but of course they could have been married
somewhere else.

Part of the problem is that my grandfather has an
extremely common name -- Barnet/Barney Cohen -- and I
haven't yet definitely found his immigration record
anywhere (Ellis Island, pay genealogy web sites). I'm
quite frustrated with this as well. I'm thinking he
probably came over under another name, but none of the
"sounds like" search tools have brought up anyone I
can definitely identify as my grandfather.

I'd be very grateful for some suggestions to help me
get past this roadblock -- thanks in advance.

ViewMate - Russian Translation of Moronowicz Records #general

Craig & Lisa Hopp <fivehopps@...>
 

Dear listers,

I've tried to personally thank each and every person who has assisted me
with previous posts to ViewMate, but I'd like to take this opportunity to
thank everyone yet again. It's simply amazing how much I have learned as a
result of your collective generosity. Also, I'd like to let everyone know
that these records I have posted previously, and again today, are all a
result of the JRI-Poland indexing project. The records available online
enabled me to directly verify what I had supposed all along as my family's
ancestral origin in Kuczbork, Poland. So, thank you volunteers, and I have
made a donation to JRI-Poland in appreciation of this volunteer effort.

I have posted two Moronowicz birth records and one marriage record to
ViewMate in the hopes that someone can assist me with a Russian translation.
The files can be found at:

A Jewish Family? Levi HOPKINS, UK #general

Astro <astrowitchee@...>
 

My gt gt gt grandfather was James Hopkins born in Somerset UK in 1936.
I have found no record of his birth. His father was Abel who I can find no
record of.
I think he was living with a Levi Hopkins in 1841 census in Chard Somerset UK.
A friend suggested that the names are Jewish and maybe James was of Jewish
descent.
Any suggestions?

Re: Herschl Nephtali LEVI/WOTTITZ - Fleischhauer in Strakonice, Bohemia #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Herschl Nephtali LEVI/WOT{T}ITZ [probably no relative
of mine] was a Fleischhauer in Strakonice, in the
Berauner Kreis, Bohemia in 1793. It is very likely
that he and his descendants provided the meat for
Sigger Jane Reber's family. Herschl was one of six
children of Salamon Levi WOT{T}ITZ and Salomena/
Rosalia. Herschl was married to Eva RUDOLF. They, in
turn, had six children.

Yesterday I had lunch with Nephtali's gtgtgt
granddaughter. I "found" her when I was rounding up
all the known/findable WOTTITZ in the world.

One of my two maternal gt-grandfathers was Gustav
WOTTITZ of Pressburg and Vienna [buried in Doblinger
Friedhof, Vienna]. I have no known link to Strakonice
and the Strakonice WOTTITZ family likewise have no
known link to Pressburg or Vienna. Many of Nephtali's
descendants ended up in the USA and Canada.

There are a number of interesting references to
Strakonice in our message archives including my
posting of 9 June 2002 "In memory of John Wotiz - he
was a Strakonice WOTTITZ".

re Nephtali's profession: Fleischhauer. In the
discussion yesterday, the emphasis has been on meat
and beating it flat to make schnitzel. One or two, did
mention *Hacker* which is closer to the mark.

I am afraid you barking up the wrong tree with your
flat schnitzel. Fleisch is indeed meat, but the word
*Hauer* has the same root as the English word *Hewer*,
namely a man who hews with a cleaver, be it a coal or
a meat cleaver.

Hewer comes >from the Anglo-Saxon word *heawan* - to
hew with a chopper or cleaver. A Hauer [noun] is
indeed - a cleaver.

In our Viennese household, we flattened our own
schnitzel at home with a wooden mallet, with a raised,
patterned head for macerating, which I still have.

Celia Male [U.K.]

Footnote: For history {perhaps apocryphal] of the
Schnitzel read: http://tinyurl.com/d7phk

Wiener Schnitzel and its Italian counterpart,
Cotoletta Milanese, involved two Hapsburg domains in a
culinary quarrel. Both branches ..... Austrian and
Italian, claimed credit for the invention... the
latter .... all the way back to a banquet given in
1134 for the canon of Milan's St. Ambrogio Cathedral."

It is most likely that the word *Fleischhauer*
predates this momentous event!


MODERATOR NOTE: Please note the Moderator's request to keep further discussions
of the meaning of Fleischhauer to private responses. Please also try to keep
discussion focuses on genealogical matters - a discussion on cuinary habits
is of peripheral relevance only.
