Re: SS-5's #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

Well, birth certificates of kids and marriage records will also give the
mother's maiden name, so the SS-5 is not the only source of what a person's
mother's maiden name is - the birth record is best, as the mother said it!
If you can get one of those, you should have a good idea what it is, unless,
of course, it is 'Americanized' or in other way altered.

My gr grandmother was a real problem. I have a picture of Sarah and used to
ask it what her maiden name was. On her death certificate, her husband gave
her parents' names, with Hirsch as her father's surname, and eventually I
found a birth record for her with the parents' names - although the surname
is common, the rest is rather odd. Thanks to Hamburg Passenger Lists!

Anyway, she came to the US as a small girl after her mother died, by herself
first class. Who did she come to? That took years to figure out. On her
last child's birth record, she said her maiden name was Mincho. I almost
didn't write for it, as I 'knew' what it would say, but surprise (let this
be a lesson to others, get everything you can even if it doesn't seem worth
it). After searching a long time, I found her Mincho family, and it is a
convoluted story. But her foster-mother, Caroline Mincho, on the
administration of her estate was AKA Caroline Hirsch. So the mother took
the girl's surname sometimes and the girl took the mother's sometimes.

Bottom line, you may get different last names for a reason.

A quick thank-you to all of you sending info about your families and towns!
And a quick apology. I am offline until January 12 or 13 when Microsoft says
it will have a patch for a new difficulty it has found. That flaw is a
particular problem to someone like me, who receives a lot of email from
previously unintroduced people (receiving Ukraine SIG email as
Co-Coordinator at a publicly posted email at historian2020@...) I
have no way of checking to see who has sent emails during this time and I
apologize for any difficulties that may cause. But I will get to you
promptly after the problem is fixed!

I am looking for the wife and daughter of the late Jerry SCHUSSLER. Jerry
was my mother's first cousin but the family lost touch with his wife and
daughter. Jerry was born in 1927 to Rose and Harry Schussler who lived in
the Bronx. When Jerry died in 1981 he was living in Fresh Meadows, NY. His
wife's name was Ethel. I think that his daughter went into the fashion
industry. If anyone knows them, please contact me.
