Moderator's Note: Please CAPITALIZE the surnames to make them easier to pick out.

Dear all,

I am new in genealogy and I am searching for Fromowitz and Farkas in Bedo
and Bilovartsi in Maramaros.

I was able to find the date of birth of my grandma's grandfather,
Iczhok Jakob Farkas on 10 March 1868 in Bedo (Maramaros)
son of Moszes Dovid and Freida Leizerovits (source Romanian National Archives
Baia Mare branch
Register Book 273 17-15. I was able to find some brothers and sisters of
Iczhok in the Maramaros database. I could not find the parents of Moszes
and Freida ??? but I based myself on Farkas genealogy of Bedo made by a cousin.

I am also interested on the descendants of Abraham Boruch Fromowitz,
Farmer/apple merchant in Bilovartsi born circa 1890 ?, father of my
grandmother, who maried Kreindel Farkas born also circa 1890 in Bedo. A
cousin still living in Israel and in his 90s (linked to the Farkas side)
told Millie Abraham Boruch's mother was called Nachama...That is the sole
information.

In jewishgen, there are Fromowitz births in Bilovartsi and Bedo. But how to
connect and how to find ? The source is always the Romanian National
Archives of Baia Mare branch Register book 273 for Bedo and 276 for
Bilovartsi (the village nearby Bedo)
There is a Boruch Fromowitz and his wife Tobe who had children Chaje Rechel
(a girl) born on 18/05/1876 in Bilovartsi (Register book 276 92-04), Gerson
Zelig born on 26/03/1868 but died in 1869 (Register book 276 91-05)


There are other couples in Bilovartsi and Bedo at the same time:

Fromowitz Chaskel and his wife Etye Katz : Chaje Rechel (25/01/1877)
(Bilovartsi in Register book 276)
Fromowitz Salomon and Chane ?????: Hers (16/01/1870) (Bedo Register Book 273
94-31)
Fromowitz Sloma and Lea Chave 15/02/1862 but died in 1869 (Bilovartsi and
Register book 276)

How to connect and to know who could be the ascendancy of Abraham Boruch
fromowitz ? I need help. How can read and consult these Romanian registers
Baia Mare for Bilovartsi and Bedo ?

Can someone help with the Romanian National Archives Baia Mare branch
Register Book Registers 273 and 276 ?

Thank you very much for your help and all the best,

Fred Quevy


Birth Register Deletion from Suceava #romania

Steven Emanuel <steven.emanuel@...>
 

Dear All

While researching the Birth Registers of Suceava, Bukovinia for the mid 19th
Century I came across an entry which had been deleted. The birth was for
Mischke BEINER b.20 Dec.1865, parents Israel & Jente.

The entry has been crossed out and endorsed:
Cancelled by order of the State Government 8 Sep. 1879, No.7927.

Mischke would have been my GGAunt.

Can anyone advise of circumstances that would lead to a Birth entry being
deleted 14 years later? Also where I could search for the order 7927 ( I
have written to the Archives in both Suceava & Vienna, so far without
success).

Deaths in Belgium #france

Hello,
Each town in Belgium has a Civil registry (burgerlijke stand in Flemish,
Etat Civil in French) with birth, marriage and death registration.
So if you know the town and the year you can maybe find there the
information you are looking for.

Re: Pogroms in Romania #romania

My father, who was born in Iasi in 1905, often mentioned the fact that
there was a pogrom in the area shortly before he was born, around
1902. I don't have any information about the original question,
relating to Jews living in Dobrogea.

"Regarding Jews living in Dobrogea: The only pogrom in Iasi that is
famous is the one in January 1941. If you know of other pogroms please let me know.
Pogroms were common in Russia, Ukraine, Bielarus, parts
of Poland, but to my knowledge were quite uncommon in Romania until
the Legionaries party came to power."

Re: Family Search Photoduplication Service #galicia

Renee Steinig
 

Thanks so much to Mark Jacobson for sharing the important news about
the Family History Library/Family Search's photoduplication service
(https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Photoduplication_Services) --
now free by email.

As Mark noted, "This works well for New York City births, deaths and
marriages indexed on http://www.italiangen.org/ or any record where you
know enough information to find the right microfilm." Suggestion: For
those NYC vital records, the easiest way to obtain microfilm numbers is to
search the ItalianGen indexes with Steve Morse's One-Step tools, at
http://stevemorse.org/#births .

Also, please note that the copying service includes index lookups. So,
for example, one could request a copy of a listing in the microfilmed
NYC birth and death indexes in the FHL's collection -- e.g. Susan
Goldsmith born 1938 or Max Freeman died 1958. To find film numbers
for those records, search at https://familysearch.org/catalog-search for
the titles "Births reported in the city of New York, 1881-1965" and "Index
to deaths, New York City, 1888-1965.")

Mark, I had a copying order ready to mail with payment when I read your
message. I'll happily donate the money to JewishGen instead. Watch for
your name on JewishGen's February Wall of Honor.

Speaking of which... Thanks to the efforts of a new JewishGen volunteer,
contributors to JewishGen via the Wall of Honor and the people recognized
in WOH inscriptions are now notified immediately when a new plaque is
added to "The Wall." Please consider using the WOH
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/Honors0.html
to say thank you for ViewMate translations and research help.

Dear Jewish Gen members,

I'm an author and working on a book idea centred around the idea of a "wounder" - a
Russian Jew in mid-1800s whose job it is to maim children to avoid their
conscription into the Czar's army.

If you have any genealogical information/family history related to this activity (a
maimed relative, or one who maimed) and would be will to share it (in whatever
form), I'd be immensely appreciative.
