It is *not* correct to say that all naturalizations were performed in federal
court after 1906. Any court of record could perform naturalizations, and
many did. For example, the Supreme Court of New York County (Manhattan) has
a huge collection of massive bound volumes of naturalization records
performed by that court (a county court) - most of them after 1905.

After 1906 the court merely had to use forms specified by the Federal
government and to file a copy of the Petition for Naturalization with the
feds.
This is more like what I had understood. And the copies of the
Petitions are at NARA, so I could see them in Washington, once I can
define the date and court.

Re: Abram Moise #france

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

Your question is among the ones which are very often asked on Jewish
genealogical forums and everyone may discuss during years about a
first question : who is Jewish ? What means "to be jewish" ? The most
common answer (not everybody agree with) is that someone is Jewish if
his mother was. Now, as written on the site of the Cercle de
Genealogie Juive in Paris http://www.genealoj.org as a header of the
"Questions/Answers" : "Many readers are asking whether such or such
surname is Jewish or not. >from a general point of view, this question
has no answer since the same name can be shared by Jews and by
non-jews as well. Nevertheless, some surnames are often borne by Jews
and other ones rarely. The only serious method consists in building
one's family tree until indisputable documents are found." I suggest
you ask your question on the above site (click on the English
version).

SUBJECT: Jakob SACHS and SILBERSTEIN Families of Nikolsberg(Mikulov)

I am searching for ancestors & family of Jakob SACHS. He died in Wien 1895

He married Louisa (Aloisia) SILBERSTEIN born may 1839 in Moravia. I am

Searching: GNISHER & FINKLESTEIN families #general

Michael Trapunsky <trapunsky@...>
 

Hi all,

Earlier I posted a search for my KANTOR family >from Paberze and Vilna.

I have some more information on one of the families in case it helps.

Hirsch KANTOR (dates unknown) married Chana (maiden name unknown) and they
had: Hertz, Meir, Tzippy and Fruma.

Fruma's children were:
1- Hertzig GNISHER - who had a son Hirsch

2- Meir Henoch FINKLESTEIN - married Shaina (maiden name unknown)and had:
Simcha Gemida, Kayla, Esther, Chana, Hirsch & Matei

3- Malkah

4- Sarah

Given that I have 2 different surnames for Fruma's sons, I'm not sure what
Malkah's and Sarah's surname was. I guess it's possible that Fruma had 2
husbands or that one of the sons changed their surname.

I would love to hear back >from anyone who might possibly know of a
connection or anything at all about these families.

Thank you very much,

Stone Ave is now known as Mother Gaston Blvd. I too would like to be

block >from Livonia ave. My GF was buried in the Sons of Israel,
Brownsville plot in Old Montifore Cemetary. I don't know if that would

1848 Hungarian Jewish Census database #hungary

This database is great for researchers of individual family names.

However, I am interested in finding the names of an entire village, the
market town of Deutschkreutz. So far, I have not figured out how to search
for a locale.

Is there a way?

Thank you.

Donors who contribute more than $100 to JewishGen operations participate in JewishGen's Value-Added Services program, which includes new Advanced Database Search Features that allow a combintion of multiple search criteria, using Boolean AND/OR searches. This allows more focused, targeted searches.
For example, you can search for all persons whose surname sounds like "Katz" and whose first name starts with "Abr". Or you can search for family groups containing a particular set of given names, within a particular town. You can also filter searches for data updated since a specific date. So if you've already searched a database, you can now search only for data recently added/updated, since a certain date, without re-viewing data that you've previously searched.
