Searching: NY City Death Records 1920-1930 #general

Lynda Schnier <lschnier@...>
 

I am looking for the death records of my great-grandparents who lived
in Brooklyn, NY. They were listed in the 1920 NY census as Aaron and
Esther Schnayer ages 58 and 59. Other relatives were found in vital
records under the following spellings: Schnaier, Schnair, Schnayer,
Schneir, Schneier, Schnier and Shnayer. I believe they both died by
1930. I have searched the Italian Genealogical Group for them under
those various spellings. Are there any other online sources where I
can search for New York City death records?

It took a few hours, even for an uncommon surname.

It's not just identity theft.

Even if "mad/bad people", or life insurance companies, etc., knew
about Ancestry etc., and were likely to be persevering enough to do
the work, I see no reason to make it easier for them by making
extended lineage-linked trees about living people easily available.

Naturalization records #ukraine

A G <mollyblum@...>
 

I have been searching for my ggrandfather DAVID BLUMENTHAL's
naturalization records and have come up empty.

I have his death certificate which is sadly lacking in much info
he died in 1922 before Social Security, I am unable to locate
his passenger record (came over around 1880/1881) and now I am
confused about his first wife's name. His marriage certificate
for what should have been his second wife in 1896 lists his
first wife who died at age 30 after giving birth to 4 children.
It lists her name as ANNA KLEIN - parents MAX KLEIN and SARAH HURWITZ.
It was actually REBECCA SCHOENBERG who married him in 1896
after being sent over >from Russia as an arranged marriage.
I know it isn't just a screw up on the wife's name as Rebecca's
parents were ROZA COHEN and MORTIMER SCHOENBERG.

Here is my problem: I talked to my grandmother's niece yesterday-
my grandmother's name was MOLLIE, her niece is MOLLA- she said
she was named for David Blumenthal's mother. But on his death
certificate and marriage certificate it lists her name as Anna.
Someone had mentioned not naming direct relations after one
another which doesn't seem to be the case. David Blumenthal's
mother was ANNA, his wife was ANNA and he named his first born
child ANNA. ???

Also... I know he was naturalized as Rebecca was naturalized
through him. The censuses list him as being naturalized in 1892.
I found NYC directories and he lived off of DELANCEY ST through
the 1880's and into the 1890's until he moved to Rochester NY.
I wrote to the clerk in Rochester and requested his naturalization
papers if they have them. I put a request in to the Northern NARA
and they found another DAVID BLUMENTHAL- definitely not my
ggrandfather. Where else can I look? I know he did not leave
NY State. He only lived in NYC and ROCHESTER NY.

I also don't know if he married ANNA (MOLLIE?) KLEIN in Russia or
in the states. His first child was born in 1885 so I am assuming
it was here since he came over in 1880-1881.

I am considering that his name changed or he listed himself
dIfferently. Seems strange that he would switch to Blumenthal-
being a Jewish name but who knows.

Sorry for the long-winded explanation :)

ZEITLIN/LIPKIN information #ukraine

Paula Zeitlin <theziti@...>
 

My husband's grandparents, Joseph ZEITLIN (b. about 1871)and Bluma
LIPKIN ZEITLIN (b. about 1875), immigrated to the Chicago area >from
Cherhigov/ Chernihiv in 1891 and 1893 respectively.

1.>from their gravestones, (in the Hebrew) we recently learned that
Joseph's full name was Eliazar Joseph, son of Avraham Lev
(ZEITLIN). It is possible that Joseph was >from Moghilev or Mstislaw
in Belarus, but his oldest son was born in Berezni.

Any information on Avraham Lev ZEITLIN would be appreciated.


2. We would like help in clarifying Bluma's headstone information.
In Hebrew she is listed as daughter of Rav/Rabbi Shmerl followed by
the words "ha Cohen" in smaller letters. We would appreciate an
explanation of this--is it an honorific, or was her father a rabbi?

We know that her family name was LIPKIN, as her brother Sender/Sam
LIPKIN also immigrated to Chicago, but on ship manifest lists his
last residence Chaslowitz.

Any additional information on Shmerl (possibly Shmerel, Shemarya)
LIPKIN would be appreciated.

While no one can say with certainty, popular "westernizations" of the
name Taube include Toby and Toni (Antonia), while the name Toyva (which
means literally "Goody" -- based on the Hebrew adjective "tov") is
often translated as "Bonnie" (which comes >from the French word for
"good"). The name Tova itself is a Hebraization of the Yiddish girl's
name Gitel ("good little girl") -- so one might also look for a
possible anglicized form like "Gita." My gg grandmother Gitel took
the English name Juliet as a "soundalike" so that's another possibility

Please help, lady looking for her father - RABINOVICI family from SECURENI/SOKIRYANY, BESSARABIA #ukraine

Avraham Y. Kahana
 

Hello,

I'm writing on behalf of a friend, hoping I can be of any help in her
research for her father's whereabouts, after the war.
The person I'm looking for is Itzig/Ayzik/Isaac Rabinovici (and other
spellings) - >from the old BESSARABIA, city called Secureni/Sokiryany,
todays western Ukraine, in the border with Moldova (at the time of the
war, Romania).

Itzig was once married to Chana Rabinovici z"l, giving birth to this
friend of mine, Herta, who lives in Austria. Itzig had one previous
daughter, that was shot to death. He worked in the Admont Displaced
Persons Camp (Admont DP), >from 20-MAY-1948 to 07-JUNE-1948, for the
Britischen-Militar-Regiergun (British Militar Government) as a
woodworker (?). Seems that Itzig lived for a while in Miami, after the
war - more precisely, on 08-SEPTEMBER-1952, at 944 Miami Beach 3 st.

Chana lived with Itzig in Vienna, for an undetermined period of time.

The Rabinovici couple aforementioned lived at Beheimgasse 21/5, Vienna
district number 17 (apparently, their had a previous address also in
Vienna - Rathausstrasse 20). They lived in a rented apartment, which
owner's was mrs. Erna Singer nee Spielvogel - daughter of Simon
Spielvogel, niece of David Spielvogel. The date in which they lived
might be somehow close to 18-JUNE-1948. Seems the couple also lived
for a short time in a pension, "Pohl", at Rathausgasse, Vienna. The
Rabinovici couple left Vienna in 31-JUL-1951.

Itzig's mother FREIDA/FRIDA Rabinovici had GELLMANN as her maiden name.
Itzig and Chana got married in SOKIRYANY on 17-DECEMBER-1914.

My friend says that both Itzig and Chana were born in
Secureni/Sokiryany, today's Western Ukraine, almost in the border with
Moldova - at that time, it was part of Romania, within the old
Bessarabia. There lived 4 Rabinovici families, according to her. Itzig
Meir Rabinovici was possibly born on 08-NOVEMBER-1890/1892, and Chana
on 08-AUGUST-1892. My friend tells me that this family may have lived
in a street called Trovitzka. Jacob/Yaakov Stivelman z"l is said to
have been the family's lawyer.

Chana, nee Sossmann,/Sussmann had a brother, Michael Sossmann. Michael
visited Salzburg (Riedenburg).
One of Itzig's sons is Boris. Apparently, this son lived in either
Argentina or Brazil, and eventually moved to USA.

She tells that there's one Steven Rabinovici, living in NY, whose
father name is also Boris - is a grandson of Itzig. In London lives
Natascha Stern, one daughter of Itzig , aunt of Steven, who is in
touch with the latter. So, Boris must be my friend's halfbrother, as
Natascha her halfsister (for Itzig remarried).

PINHAS Rabinovici, Itzig's brother, had also a son named Boris
(Bentzion) who left to Bogota, COLOMBIA. This BORIS married a woman
from Yedinetz/Edineti, whose maiden name is FELBERG, and they had a
son called Samuel, who in turned married ESTER and named his son
BORIS. SAMUEL moved to Miami, US, where he lives with his family.

My friend says that, while working with the help of the HIAS, she got
a record >from Itzig and Chana Rabinovici arrival in NY, in 1951. The
recorded stated they had a son called Boris.


Follows a draft of the Rabinovici family tree in Secureni/Sokiryany:
1. Berco Rabinovici z"l, born on 1856, married to Frida nee Gellmann

1.1 Itzig Meir Rabinovici, born on 1890, married to Chana Sossmann,
born on 1892 (daughter of Sandor and Freida, nee Bojar) (it's
important to mention that my friend already conducted some research
and found some documents that refer to the same Itzig, but with
different birth dates, such as 1908 and 1910).
1.2 Pinhas Rabinovici, born on 1877, married to Chana Cukuruza (not
sure of the spelling), born in 1881
1.2.1 Ita Rabinovici z"l born in 1905 - she and her family were
killed in the war.
1.2.2 Bentzion (Boris) Rabinovici, born in 1907

1.3 Malco Rabinovici, born on 1865
1.3.1 Haim rabinovici, born in 1903

1.4 Aron Rabinovici, born on 1896, married to Golda, born in 1897
1.4.1 Haico Rabinovici, born in 1920
1.4.2 Wolf, born in 1922


There's one FEIGA Rabinovici which we do not know where does she fit
in the tree. It is possible that she died during the war. There are
still ENTA, born in 1916, BRANA, 1919, ETLEA, 1920, and MINDLEA, 1922,
that might have been children of Itzig and Chana as well.


I ask everyone who has any information to add to any of the facts
above to please reply back to me. This lady has been searching for the
whereabouts of his father for a long time, and I'm sure if stopped for
a minute to think if it was our father, we wouldn't think twice
whether to try to find what happened.
