Getting a Record from Polish Archives #poland

Richard Cooper
 

As what passes for an expert, I feel somewhat embarrassed about asking
this question.

On searching http://jri-poland.org/ I found the death record of my
great-grand-aunt Jute LETZTER in Tarnow in 1885.

Wishing to avoid disproportionate bank charges, I thought I'd try to
get hold of a copy of the original record using the method I'd used in
the 1990s.
Customising the form template on http://jri-poland.org/ I wrote direct
to Tarnow Branch Archives enclosing a 20 euro note.

Two months later I got a reply asking me to transfer the money direct
to the archives bank account - and returning my 20 euro note.
The cost of the record is 20 zloty (6 GB pounds). My bank charges a
flat fee of 20 GB pounds to transfer the money.

Does anyone know a reliable way of doing this more cheaply using a UK
organisation?

Best wishes and happy ancestor-spotting,

Searching: ROSETT/ROSETTE #belarus

Walter Rosett
 

I am trying to find a ships record, immigration record and naturalization
record on my great uncle Adolphe ROSETT aka Arnold Mark ROSETTE (and other
spellings) born 1862 according to some records. His brother, Joshua ROSETT
from Vitebsk, Russia (I presume now Belarus), was easy to trace and arrived
in New York City in 1891 was naturalized there then moved to Baltimore after
getting married in NY in 1898. Family hearsay suggests that he stayed with
relatives on arriving. Many "ROSETT" presumed relatives lived in New York
City.

According to the 1900 census with some conflicting information >from later
census, Adolphe immigrated in 1888 the same year he was married although a
later record >from his wife lists her naturalization as through her husband
by marriage 1 June 1890. Their first three children were born Mar 1890, Feb
1892 and June 1894 presumably in New York the last three children were born
in Baltimore according to multiple census records >from his wife Sophie
ROSETT although only the 1900 census lists all children as born in Maryland.
No birth records could be found for the children. The first city directory
listing for both Adolph and Sophia ROSETT was at 908 e Balto. in Baltimore
in 1895 so I presume that they moved there at that time. There are many
more references in newspapers after that. The University of Maryland School
of medicine graduated both Joshua ROSETT and Adolph (Arnold) ROSETT in 1903.
This same record list Schools that both attended in Russia. Adolph used
"Adolph", "Arnold", "ROSETT", and "ROSETTE". He died in 1916 after rather a
sordid history. He supposed was naturalized as of the 1900 census but truth
was not his strong point.

I did find an Aron ROSETT >from Vitebsk b abt 1868 who arrived in NY >from
Hamburg 9 Sept 1889 but there are no other references to him anywhere.
There are innumerable "Rosett" spellings including Rossett, Roseth, Rozett,
Roset, Rosot, Rosit, Rosette, Rosat and others. Most "Rosetts" arrived in
New York City although some through Philadelphia and Baltimore. I believe
that I have researched all these areas without success.

Any help is appreciated.

Hello! Thanks to the folks who have helped me with recent translations!
I'm excited to learn about the following:

Czech cemetery database #austria-czech

library@...
 

Randy and others;

I visited many of those places and I know personally some of the people who are taking care about the
cemeteries and are making lists of graves. A good example is Fred Chvatal and/or Pilsen Jewish community
which recently compiled registers on several cemeteries in western Bohemia. Also there are quite a few
PhD thesis on different cemeteries with more or less complete list of graves.

Being you I would use the list of cemeteries that Achab Haidler put on his wonderful chewra.com and
gradually fulfil the parts that he did NOT work at. He may be contacted to learn what he is working at
now and what he would suggest to do.

I do not know what sources Prague Jewish Museum has. I heard that they plan to put some online in the
future - this shall be cleared, too, to avoid any duplicity.

On Austria-Czech web we shall put special page and to gather bunch of links that already work like the
one for Brno, Ivancice, Trebic and Uhersky Ostrov at the web page of Brno Jewish community with (search
for deceased person): http://www.zob.cz/?q=cs/vyhledavani-zemrelych

I could be a kind of coordinator in CR to collect information >from local sources including the cemeteries
that were not documented yet. You shall find volunteers for indexing the names >from recently made
registers/PhD thesis that I would gradually gather.

All of this shall be combined with the indexing of the death books at badatelna.cz. It is rather long-term
project and it depends if we give it a priority.

Yizkor Book Project, July 2013 #austria-czech

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

With the Boston IAJGS conference just around the corner, I am quite
certain that this month's Yizkor Book Project report finds many of you
making your final preparations before the big event. Unfortunately, I
am unable to be there but, very fortunately for those that will, once
again Jan Meisels Allen has graciously agreed to the Yizkor Book Birds
of a Feather meeting and this is an open invitation to attend.

During July, a further two books have been published through our Yizkor
Books in Print Project:

- Jaslo, Poland - Yizkor (Memorial) Book of the Jewish Community of
Jaslo, Poland
- Telekhany, Belarus - The Telekhan Yizkor Book

With these new additions, we have now published 18 books and you can see
the full list of these books and read all about the project at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html We continue to be amazed by the
very positive response to this project which we set up as a public service
to those interested in seeing these translations as something that they
can hold in their hands and share with their family.

I am also pleased to note that during July, we finished placing the
complete and substantial English sections >from the Brzozow and Dobromil
Yizkor books which were kindly typed up by Helen Rosenstein Wolf and Susan
Dressler, respectively. As I always note, there are many aspects of the
Yizkor Book Project in which we gladly welcome volunteer assistance and
typing up is just one of these. So if you would like to become involved in
the YB Project in some way, I would be happy to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for July, during this last month we have added
these 3 new projects:

Rosenberg and Bernstein Families #unitedkingdom

Hi Genners
I would be grateful if anyone knows about these families as I am searching on behalf for a cousin who lives
in Birmingham as she is trying to find about them.
Many thanks in advance  

Levi Rosenberg, born 1861 came >from Russia/Poland, >from Souwalk/Souwalki in around 1880/85 and
landed up in Blackburn. He married Annie Bernstein, born also in Russia/Poland in 1864, and had 7
children - Maurice b 1884, Joseph b1886, Hetti b 1888, Samuel b1890, Abraham (Frank) b 1892, Sophie b 1894 and Rebecca (Rica) b1904.. It would be the children of Maurice and Sam who might be contactable - I know about Joe's daughters and I don't think Sophie or Rica married. I'm more interested in the Bernstein side of the family as some of them ended up in France where it would seem that Marcel did exceptionally well and was also the father of Henri Bernstein, the author. I think Marcel and Annie were first cousins.
I hope that you will be able to guide me to the right direction about that family and much appreciated.
Simon

Conference - It's Here! [Day 1 - Sunday, 4 August 2013] #germany

Jeanette R Rosenberg OBE
 

Yesterday was conference registration day, involving the collection of
conference paraphenalia - the bag, containing our program and family
finder document and our badge. Conference badges are really important
- they are your invitation to peer closely at fellow badge wearers and
to chat to people in elevators and corridors, to see if you share family connections.

It was also the day when your GerSIG Directors met to finalise our
share fair and GerSIG activities for the week. We have also started
distributing GerSIG conference ribbons, a purple ribbon with gold
writing that denotes German-Jewish SIG GerSIG. GerSIGgers are
encouraged to collect their ribbons >from the GerSIG table in the share
fair and during the Germany interest sessions at conference.

GerSIG events of interest at conference today are: The Old German
Script of the 19th Century by Gerhard Buck and The Notorious
Familianten Decree of 1726: Was it Enforced? by Paul King.
