Baranow shul on Lower East Side? #general

Bubby <yeruchem18@...>
 

Quoting a relative of my 82 year old mother in law, "Great Uncle Nathan used
to love to daven in the Baranower shul in the Lower East Side; he loved the
rabbi there."
Does anyone know of such a shul or if there may be accessible records for it?
To reply, please either post to the newsgroup or remove the number 18 >from
my email address.
Thank you,

I am writing a book about Scotland's small Jewish communities, namely
Aberdeen, Ayr, Dundee, Dunfermline, Falkirk, Greenock and Inverness, as well
as those Jews scattered and isolated throughout the islands of Scotland, for
example, Lerwick in Shetland. I would very much like to hear >from anyone who
may have memories or memorabilia, no matter how trivial, which could help,

Help with photos on ViewMate #general

Elsebeth P <jgsdk_ep@...>
 

Dear genners,

I am trying to help a woman who was a hidden child in Poland during WWII.

Please go to http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html
and take a look at the two photos VM 7413 and VM 7414.
You can also go directly to the photos:
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7413 and
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7414

I hope that someone recognizes the girl - or at least finds a resemblance that
mightlead me to someone who might know her - on the photo and can give some
information or hints on where to search further.

She was born 1939 and was a hidden child in Krakow, Poland, during WWII, her
surname was alledgedly something like KELLER/KNELLER/KNOLLER. The photo
was taken during WWII (presumably 1942 or 1943) and by way of a middleman
sent to her mother and grandmother who was in the Sosnowiec ghetto.

After the war she was sent to the Jewish Orphanage: Wojewodzki Komitet
Zydowski (address: Ulica Dluga 38, Krakow).

Her mother's name was allegedly Rozia (Rosalie).

Any and all information will be greatly appreciated.

Best regards

NYC marriage license puzzle #general

Shelly Weiner <shellyjag619@...>
 

Dear all,

I have a Manhattan marriage certificate, dated 9 Feb 1914 for my great
great aunt & uncle who were married at City Hall. I also have another
certificate, dated 17 June 1916, this time the location of the marriage is
shown as 55-57 5th Ave, Manhattan.

*Both* certicates show the *exact* same information for most lines
(residence, age, parents name, # of marriages) The only differences between
the 2 certificates are the location, the officiating official and the
witnesses. The signatures on the back of the license are exactly the same.

Question 1:

Does anyone know what was located at 55-57 5th Ave in 1916? I have found out
that this address (or at least 55 5th Ave) is now the Cardoza School of Law
Building. I have searched thru Google et.al as well as the NYPL Digital images
collection, but haven't been able to find this address

Did the NYC directory have a section for listings by addresses back in 1916?

Question 2:

Does anyone have any ideas as to why the information given is *exactly* the same
2 years later? If they were married civilly 2 years earlier, wouldn't the
residences be the same?

I also thought that if you were married at City Hall, you didn't need another
marriage license if you were later married in a religious ceremony. Any ideas
on this?

They were both Jewish, so I don't think the 2nd marriage license is the result
of a conversion.

Re: search before posting...telephone numbers #general

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

Let's give our online Jewishgenners some credit....

Most people requesting phone number, current address or contact information
in this group are doing so because they've exhausted the methods we all know
about which include various online phone and business directories, Google
searches, and calling directory assistance.

Often, Jgenner residents in a smaller town or city might have ways of
locating these "missing people" if their phone numbers are unlisted...as
many are these days--and can provide leads to the person searching.

In reply to Howie's query: <<Need tel # of Conrad L. Lohoefer in Visalia,
CA. Can anyone assist.>>

Stan wrote: << You don't need to ask anyone to look up a telephone number
anywhere in the US. There are many online telephone books such as
superpages.com, whitepages.com, whowhere.com, etc. >>.......

I don't think Howie was simply asking someone to look up a phone number for
him.

I checked several online directories for this listing and found the number
to be unlisted or unavailable. However on one of the many for-fee
"people-finding" databases available through some libraries or private
subscriptions, the number and address was listed. Usually the case for many
unlisted numbers--and often the only way to locate someone.

On these more sophisticated search engines--employing a wide variety of
search criteria, including name, address, aliases and related parties, users
can instantly locate an individual--and often discover married names if only
the maiden name is known, along with much information taking strictly >from
public records. They are invaluable for locating elusive relatives...and
even determining if you've located the "right" people (especially with the
more common names that gets lots of hits) as ages and names of relatives
living with the person you're seeking (and even recently deceased relatives)
are all provided. If you find a phone number you can also do a search of
that number and discover addresses where the same person lived many years
ago.

Of course...the thought that all this information exists out there is a bit
frightening when you consider who might be looking for *you*...but since it's
a useful genealogical research tool, it's worth recommending, especially
considering the worthy goals of genealogists...reuniting families and
discovering missing family members.

One example is a free service linked >from the former search-engine
Zabasearch is:

http://www.peoplefinders.com/?from=googs2339538

And it will give you name, age, names of relatives and city results...so at
least you know the person exists. You can also try your local library to
see if they offer a subscription to this type of service. As previous
postings to the list suggested...if you use the free Infospace, 411, etc.
you WILL get pop-ups one-time-fee search engines when people have unlisted
phone numbers. The free services we are allowed to mention here all link to
paid services. Be aware of that.

Yes...people posting to this group should do their own preliminary
research...but if they've come up empty-handed, online discussion
groups--with the feedback >from knowledgeable participants who have had
access to useful databases -- are wonderful in enabling researchers to make
breakthroughs. I know I've received so much help in these postings, that
I'm happy to return the favor.
