Re: How do I obtain my parents New York City School Records #general

Joy Rich <joyrichny@...>
 

Leonard, this information was provided to me by the Office of Community
Relations in December 2005 in preparation for the 2006 IAJGS Conference on
Jewish Genealogy in New York City.

To request school records of former students of the New York City public
schools, contact the school last attended. If that school no longer exists,
contact the region that covers the district in which the school was located.
Information about regions and corresponding districts can be found on the DOE
website at
http://schools.nyc.gov/OurSchools/default.htm . Click on the region for the
neighborhood your parents lived in to get the name and mailing address of the
regional superintendent.

The student cumulative education record file ("Permanent Record Card") is
supposed to be retained permanently. Although the regulations state that, the
records are often not kept or are not available.

Requests can be made by postal mail only.

Jewish genealogy shaped by the Gold Rush re ROSENBLATT/ WALLACH of Hesse #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

There are many references to Jews and the Californian Gold Rush to be found on
the internet, but as yet I have found none specifically dealing with the
genealogy of named families in the Australian Gold Rush. That is why I think my
recent posting on the ROSENBLATT/DOERNBERG/WALLACH families is so exciting.

Louis [Liebmann] ROSENBLATT and his wife Henrietta nee DOERNBERG as well as his
brother Henry emigrated >from Germany to Australia via Liverpool in 1854 and
settled in Sandhurst, Victoria, Australia. I found links between the ROSENBLATT
family of Hebel, Germany and Sandhurst, Australia with the ROSENBLATT family of
Port Elizabeth and Capetown, South Africa and also the WALLACH family of Kassel
[Cassel], Germany and the NEUKORN family of Krakow.

Thus Herman, the son of Henry ROSENBLATT and his wife Emilie of Hebel married
to Jeannette WALLACH and they moved to Port Elizabeth, South Africa, where
their daughter Rhoda ROSENBLATT was born: 18 Dec 1889; Died: 3 Dec 1984, Cape
Town.

And going back to Australia we can find the Sandhurst, Victoria, July 1855
naturalisation petitions for Joseph WALLACH born Cassel, Hesse in 1827. He had
arrived in Victoria in 1853. I assume Jeannette was his daughter.

So why did they all go to Sandhurst? This town, originally known as Bendigo
Creek later [1891] reverted to the name Bendigo. Bendigo was famed for the Gold
Rush which started in the early 1850s.

Saul Issroff tells me [I have his permission to quote] that most of the early
German Jews in South Africa were brought out by the MOSENTHAL family, relations
or friends who became merchants and traders in rural towns. Many came from
Hesse Cassel. Hence the the opportunities for trade in a gold rush town lured
the young men of Hesse to Australia in the early 1850s and probably family ties
[via Cassel] plus the gold and diamonds brought the next generation to Africa.
I suspect that some of the S. African ROSENBLATT/WALLACH descendants are once
again back in Australia.

I have checked Yad vashem {and also the JGFF for links] and there are a
surprisingly large number of WALLACH who were still living in Cassel at the
time of WW2. We remember them here today.

Re: US death notices #general

phylliskramer1@att.net <phylliskramer1@...>
 

liza asked about US requirements for posting death notices in newspapers....

Death certificates have been required since the early years of the last century,
but they are governed by state rules so there is no one year they began.

There are no requirements to post death notices. Typically the funeral director
consults with the family and places a "paid notice" in a local newspaper. These
notices can include a list of the surviving relatives and other biographical
information, including:
· former residences
· educational institutions attended
· employment
· military service
· memberships in clubs, lodges and other organizations
· personal accomplishments, honors, etc.
Great clues for the genealogist!

You might want to begin with the social security death index....and find the
dates they died....
http://ssdi.genealogy.rootsweb.com/

Then you want to find a library subscribing to Proquest....only libraries have
this...and seek one with the historical NY Times and historical California papers...

another option is to try the Google Archives at
http://news.google.com/archivesearch/
which will lead you to articles available online at a nominal charge. Go to the
advanced search, put in the surname and year, and the word "died" for obituaries.

one last option, take the JewishGen Basic Genealogy course, beginning January 1
and you'll find out about all the US rules and regulations. Go to
http://www.jewishgen.org/education and view the description and requirements.

good luck with your search

Kopyl (Kapule) #belarus

Dear Genners:
I am interested in hearing >from persons whose
ancestors, like mine, emigrated to the USA >from the
shtetl Kapyl (Kapule)located near Slutsk---especially
those who emigrated to Sioux City, Iowa. There was a
large Kapule community there in the early and mid
1900s and even a Kapule schule. My grandfather, Avram
SHAPIRO was a Hebrew teacher there. I have contacted
several people listed in the shtetl finder for Kapyl,
but none had information. The Slutsk Yizkor Book has
chapters on Kapule, but they don't cover the late
1800s-early 1900s. Purpose of my inquiry is to
determine if anyone has any documents, photos, etc.
pertaining to the shtetl that they would be willing to
share, or similar material re the Sioux City Kapule
immigrant community. I have an audio tape of my late
mother describing what it was like growing up in
Kapule in the early 1900s. I also have a copy of the
history of the Jewish community of Sioux City
published by the Jewish Federation there many years
ago.
