Re: Seeking Information about Unusual First name in Polish Document #general

Layne <lonufer@...>
 

My father's Hebrew name is Chanine and as a consequence so is my son's.
I've found this name to be one of the most difficult first names to locate.
In the above spelling, Chanine, it is on JewishGen, but not before you pass
through many female responses in the Jewish Given Names Database. I know
you believe your spelling is correct and I believe you do have a version of
the spelling. It reminds me of Hanukah and Chanukah. Both spellings are
acceptable. I've been told that's it's one of the oldest Hebrew names and
in religious communities, this name garners great respect.
Thank you for inquiring about the name Chanine. I've been meaning to ask
Jewish Gen the following question. My great great grand father's Hebrew name
is Chanine. He was born in Poland, but there are very few Chanines in the
entire JRI Poland database. I've been told his secular name was Tannum. I
can find no Tannum's in JRI Poland. Some have suggest Tanoch. What is the
relationship between Tannum and Chanine or between Tanoch and Chanine. Is
there another given name I could be looking for.

Re: Looking For The Village Of Amelnick In Galicia #general

Dear Genners:
Recently I finally found my grandmother's village. I was told she was from
Poland and that's true after WWI, but when she was born, the area was
Galicia. Now that I've finally found the name of the village, Amelnick, I
cannot find where it is located within Galicia. Any suggestions would be
appreciated.

Hi,

Can anyone go to the NYC Dept. of Vital Records for me to check on a
marriage certificate this week? It is somewhat urgent as I just
discovered something very unsettling on the 1940 census for NY
concerning my great-grandfather's ex-wife and I don't want to stir the
pot until I can be sure this is true.

Please email me for the certificate information.

Best,

Michael Waas

Israeli death certificate #general

Clive Callman <callman@...>
 

My grandmother Fanny SUESSMANN nee DANZIGER is buried on the Mount of
Olives, Jerusalem. She was living at 27 Ramban Street, Jerusalem >from about
1940 until her death after a relatively short period. I have been trying to
obtain her death certificate, or details of her death and posted this
information in February. I am also trying to obtain the death certificate
of her son, Dr. Georg SUESSMANN who lived at the same address and died in
April 1959. He was buried in Jerusalem.
Following leads suggested, I was informed by the Israeli Ministry of the
Interior that I should contact the Embassy of Israel in London. It has
proved impossible to obtain any information >from them. They informed me
that I have to be an Israeli citizen to obtain an Israeli death certificate.
I have tried to telephone them, and emailed them with no success. Can
anyone suggest how I can proceed?
With many thanks,
His Honour Clive Callman

To All,

Following Logan Kleinwak's detailed instructions, I have spent
considerable hours poring through the Krakow 1890 census, trying to
see where the next alphabetical listing began. I decided it might help
others by providing a list of the images where you can all shorten your
search. Below are the images to enter that will take you to the specified
letter of the alphabet.

On the website
http://mbc.malopolska.pl/dlibra/publication?id=71468&tab=3
at the very bottom, the two items listed with "obcy" are the indices
to the census, and one is A-L, the other M-Z.
