Russian Translation of Suwalki 1893 Birth Record Needed #general

ewolfson
 

Geners:

Thank you to all who helped with my translation request for an old photograph.
I just received a document >from the Polish State Archives in Suwalki for a Chana
SZTAM, birth recorded in 1893 (may be a late registration).

I am sorely in need of translation assistance, to provide the full name of Chana,
as well as the full names of her parents. I suspect her father's name was Chaim,
but I am looking for whether his second given name (if any) is recorded, along with
the given and surname of her mother.

Any additional information as to witnesses and the precise birth date would also be
much appreciated.

I have a link to this image on my website:

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I am trying to locate the Bar mitzvah records for my great Great
Grandfather Joseph SEILER in New York. I am interested in finding the
history of Jewish Synagogues that were in existence at that time in
New York. He was born on December 27, 1827 in Germany and came to the
United States in 1830 at the age of 3. His Bar mitzvah would have
been 27 December 1840.
You would have to define years in the Jewish calender sense, meseems:

27 December 1827 -> 1 Teves 5588 -> 1 Teves 5601 -> 25 December 1840
[using: http://www.hebcal.com/converter/]

If he was born after sundown: 26 december 1840
The next Sjabos in both cases was 2 Teves -> 26 december 1840
being the for-last day of Chanuka
[http://stevemorse.org/jcal/calendar.htm?year=5601]

My questions are;

1. How many Synagogues were located in New York between 1830 and 1840?
2. If anyone knows that answer the second question is what were their
names? 3. Does anyone know where the Bar mitzvah information exists?
Since a boy becomes Bar Mitswa automatically,what would be the need to record it?

Bar Mitswa is not an initiation rite [anymore?],it is [just]a transition into
adulthood.

Possible ceremonies, a relatively recent and not halachically required custom,
could customarily be on the next Shabos, or even 30 years later or not at all.

"Provincie Groningen"

Arnold Frankforter got a religious school prize in Winschoten in 1909,
[so his D.O.B. could be around 1890 to 1904] according to Nieuw Isr.
Weekblad, vol. 45(1909), nr. 5, p. [2e bl 2].
<http://www.jhm.nl/zoeken?subject=Frankforter,+Arnold>

He is not registered as "died in the Sjoa":
<http://www.joodsmonument.nl/search?q_mm=frankforter>

Izaak Frankforter and his wife were born and lived in Winschoten.
Izaak died there in 1940, his wife and possible children in Auschwitz
<http://www.joodsmonument.nl/person/557586/nl?lang=en>
but there are more possible parents.

<http://www.genlias.nl/>
lists 461 Frankforter-s in the Netherlands,
combined with the place "Winschoten" this number reduces to 200,
but no "Arnold", he probably is to young to be included.

I can find no Frankforter in Den Haag or Rotterdam.

In Amsterdam they were famous >from long before 1700.
Simon ben Israel Frankforter b Swerin, Germany, d. Amsterdam 9Dec1702
wrote what later in English became "The book of Life".

He was a cousin of someone who married into my family and I would
like to exchange information.

Hi Ukraine Genners,
Nowhere on the Ukraine SIG Digest can I find mention of my families homeplaces. Maybe because it was part of Aus/Hungary? or Czechoslovakia? Chumalovo was my mothers birth place now in Ukraine. Rose Feldman said that there were 26 Oblasts, maybe there are 27? Check out my new Shtetlinks web page.

I need all the new info or stories, photos etc. There must be someone out there Who had family that came >from Maramaros, or am I the last one standing?
