Has anyone had the experience of sending for or examining the 1819 census
for Lublin? Does the census have only given names but not surnames?

ViewMate translation request--Russian #general

Deborah Dworski
 

Looking for help translating some Russian-language images I've posted
at ViewMate. Some or all of the pages may be part of one document,
but I really don't know. A kind volunteer has listed some of the
parties mentioned in a couple of the images, but I have no idea about
the content. Most likely they are vital records of some sort. All of
the pages pertain to the town of Golub Dobrzyn, Poland. Hopefully the
content will shed some light on the family of an elderly Holocaust
survivor.

Here are direct links:

Re: Unknown Daughter/Sister--Did She Really Exist? #general

jbonline1111@...
 

I had a similar issue in my family. The first child was a daughter
who died at childbirth. One story was that she froze to death while my
grandmother was being cared for, but that sounded unlikely. My one
advantage was that I knew if she existed she was born in Manhattan.

After talking to many family members without any result, she was
finally found on cemetery records as buried in Staten Island as baby
SLATAS, no given name. The death certificate listed her as stillborn.

My point is, there are many possible ways to search for this child. I
would start in the area where the family first settled and look for a
death certificate or cemetery listing that might fit.

Dear Richard,

Thanks a lot. No, I did not know about Montefiore Censuses, and found it
very interesting.

The only question I have, and maybe you have the answer... I am not seeing
the Surnames. These years Jews definitely had surnames if they came from
Russian Empire. I looked in Hebrew and there are no Surnames too.

Shabbat Shalom,

Please excuse me if this was already mentioned in the Bessarabia SIG. I

I might have easily missed the database or a discussion of it..............

In response to Isabel's question, a friend sent this (which enabled her
to locate a particular maker between 1924 and 1931):

"...Vienna's historical address books, which are available
online here: http://www.digital.wienbibliothek.at/nav/classification/2609"

Hope this helps someone.

Naming in the Netherlands (changing names when going from Germany to Holland) #general

Lin <lin2@...>
 

My great-grandmother's sister was Fratchen SCHWARZ, born in Raesfeld,
Germany. She married David GANS who was >from Holland. I was told that
the Dutch records list her as Fraadgen and on her headstone it says
Fradchen GANS-SCHWARZ instead of (Fratchen) SCHWARZ GANS.

Does anyone know why the names would be reversed. And is it common for
a first name's spelling to be changed?
Thank you so much.

Query follow up #lithuania

Bettye Heinrich <bettye31@...>
 

To all that read my previous query on the family of Benjamin Green:

I do think that the surname was changed >from its original spelling. I
have tried various ways to locate information on them prior to their arrival
in the USA. I felt that members of this list would know what their Hebrew
names equaled in the English language and that would assist me in finding
further information on them. I am surprised that no one on this list has
an answer to the translation of their Hebrew names.

I have read thousands of passenger ship records without finding their
arrival in the USA. That included those that came via Canada. I have
searched the 1891 England census without success. I searched the BMD
for England for either/and a birth record for son Harry B. Green b July
1891 and the possibility of Benjamin and Esther having married in England
rather than in Lithuania.
