Chosing a pay-site for the best coverage in UK records. #general

David Scriven
 

Dear Genners,

I've reached a dead -end using the free resources that
are available for UK (especially London) records, and I'm
trying to decide which pay-site would be best.

Do Genners have any experience/advice that would enable
me to choose?

I've tried to use the free BMD records via ancestry.co.uk to find
my grand-parents marriage that I know took place in 1904/5,
but I've had no luck - are there any differences in the BMD
records kept by the different sites, or are they all the same?

Searching for Schneider/Tenenbaum in Argentina #warsaw #poland

Greetings all JewishGenners. We are searching for the family of my
husband's grandfather, most likely living in Argentina, but possibly =

His grandfather was Isador Tenenbaum (spelled that way). He =
immigrated to
the US >from Warsaw, Poland in the early 1900s. In the 1920s/1930s, he =
had
two sisters and one brother who immigrated to Argentina during the time
period when the US was largely closed to immigration. =A0The remainder =
of the
family perished in the holocaust.

The two sisters, of course, had the same maiden name as my grandfather
(Tenenbaum) but they both married and undoubtedly took new names, which =
we
don't know. The one brother, unfortunately, died young in an
automobile
accident in Argentina. One sister was very successful and her family =
owned a factory which produced alligator handbags. =A0One of the sisters had a =
son in medical school. The sisters visited us in Boston around 1959.

One sister had a daughter or daughter-in-law whose name was Schneider. =

her
son (the doctor?), or maybe it was the married name of a daughter. In =
any

1960s,following the visit, my mother (Miriam Cutler) carried on a =
correspondence with Mirtha. We presume Mirtha subsequently married and

We are searching for any members of this family. Any help would be

US WWII enlistment records #general

Renee Steinig
 

I found a relative listed in the
U.S. World War II Army Enlistment Records, 1938-1946
on Ancestry.com. According to Ancestry, the source of this data is
Record Group 64 at the National Archives in College Park, Maryland --
WD AGO Form 317 (used >from 1941-45), WD AGO Form 372 (used from
1945-46), and Enlisted Reserve Corps Statistical cards. This database
is also available on the National Archives website --
http://aad.archives.gov/aad/.

Two questions:

1) Do the original forms contain any details not included in the
online database -- in particular. exact dates of birth, which would be
so helpful to identifying deceased veterans' in the Social Security
Death Index?

2) Can anyone recommend a contact person at NARA to write about these
military ecords?

Thanks.

Searching for Cantor Louis FROMAN/ FROMEIN help needed ASAP #general

Susan Viuker Lieberman <Viukerville11@...>
 

Hello everyone:

I am searching for any information about Cantor Louis FROMAN/FROMEIN who
married a friend's grandparents in 1943.
The marriage took place at 745 Howard Avenue in Brooklyn.

Two questions:

1- Is anyone familiar with this Cantor?

2- If so , was he orthodox and what shul was he associated ?

The reason we are searching is in order to marry in Israel the Beth din
needs to know about this marriage of the grandparents of the bride. The
bride is Jewish and the Beth din agrees with that but it must know about
this marriage in order to be certain of other facts. It is terribly
important because the wedding is set in Israel for early May. This question
has just surfaced.

We have already searched the municipal records in Manhattan for 10 years
surrounding this marriage.

Thankyou very much,

Susan VIUKER Landau

Re: New York doctor who stole babies after birth, 1920s #general

Hi Fellow JGENers,

My Grandparents Lena and Julius EISENBERG had two children (both
born in New York). I believe that before my mother (the oldest)
was born (she was born in 1928) that my Grandmother gave birth to
two other children. The children supposedly died shortly after
birth. My mother's birth announcement in the paper read:
"EISENBERG - To Julius and Mrs. Eisenberg, 906 E. 172nd St., a
daughter, at Tremont Sanitarium". I don't know if these other
babies were born in the same location?

It was found out later that the doctor who delivered those two
babies was arrested for selling babies. So, we are assuming that
these two babies may have suffered the same fate (taken shortly
after birth).

I am wondering if anyone out there has any information such as
newspaper clippings (on this "doctor") and/or can suggest ways
of checking records about these births. I don't know if a formal
burial would have taken place. At the very least, perhaps some
paperwork can be located that would show the record of these births.

Male or Female *shown* as first name on a Birth Record #general

Naidia Woolf <rnwoolf@...>
 

I'm responding to numerous references in this newsgroup to "Male" and
"Female" shown as first names on a birth record.

It is more precise to state that in event of a live birth when the child's
name is not known (or has not yet been provided to the hospital authorities)
or when a child is still-born (born dead) at the time the certificate is (or
was) being prepared, the clerk / registrar insert(ed) the gender, "male" or
"female," in the first name column. In short, "male" and "female" are *not*
first names and shouldn't be referred to as such.
