Romania SIG #Romania ViewMate Translation Request -- Romanian military document #romania

G Sles
 

Greetings JGenners,

I'd appreciate a direct translation of the handwritten
sections of my ggf Yancu (Jacob) SOLOMON's Romanian military
document >from the 1890s.

Here's the upper part of the document:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=23237
- Please include the preprinted words in the sections
containing handwriting, as I'm interested in the personal
details and context.
- Ignore the preprinted paragraphs in small print below
the handwritten sections.
- Question: Jacob's father was Herscu, but who or what was Minerve?

Here's the lower half of the document, the part that has three
circular seals stamped on it:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=23238

'Can't wait to find out if Jacob actually served in the army,
or if he was in the reserves, or if this was just a registration
form that he had to keep updated. He later served as a civilian
with the British Army during the Boer War in South Africa...and
that's a whole 'nother story!

Please reply via ViewMate or privately.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Best,
Gay Slesinger

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Massachusetts Vital Records (1907 or so) #general

Martha Forsyth
 

Maybe this helps? http://home.ptd.net/~timarg/PaHR-Access-statesall.htm
shows that :

Massachusetts Birth and Death records begin in 1841, State Archives has records
1841-1915. Images (1841-1915)are also available at <http://beta.familysearch.org>
Access to records SINCE 1916, with index, is allowed at the State Register's
research room, and <http://www.ancestry.com> has the death index 1970-2003 (but
requires subscription)

I also Googled (no quotes) "Massachusetts Vital Records archives" and got many
results, try http://vitalrec.com/ma.html (and if it doesn't work try the search
yourself, you can tell better than I can what you're looking for):

Best, Martha

From: Jonathan Malamy<jmalamy@...>
My family search began in NYC and I have learned my way around vital records and
the municipal archives at 31 Chambers. But one branch of my family settled and
spent years in Boston. Through familysearch.org I linked to some birth lists but
I am wondering if their are individual birth certificats for Boston/Mass as there
are in NY. And marriage and death too, for that matter. And if so, how do you
get access to them?

Meron Lavie
 

I just found out that my gg-grandfather Julius' original name was Zechiel. I found
one or two instances in which Zechiel was used as a family name, but never as a
first name.

Has anyone here ever heard of it?

Abraham BLUM (1808-1858) - find the death cert. #france

pierre28@...
 

from Abraham's birth certificate (Strasbourg, 3-Jul-1808, # 868), there is
in the margin that he died at the Iles du Salut (12-Nov-1858) in French
Guyana, which I believe was a penal colony after 1852. Where would one find
the death certificate ?
