in search of family tree #germany

Alan Bauer
 

Hello,

A cousin of mine mentioned that one of grandfather's cousins had recently
past away and that he had sent and/or posted our family tree with Yad
Vashem. I have looked at the Yad Vashem site, but I am unable to find
anything related to family trees, am I looking in the wrong place?
Is there perhaps a different repository for Jewish Family Trees?

Thank you in advance for your. Best Regards

Alan Bauer [City? State?] baualai@msn.com

Re: Launch of New Jewish Cemetery Database in New Haven CT #general

Barbara Zimmer
 

Dear Genners,
Jan Meisels Allen announced the launch of a database for the Great New Haven
Connecticut area's 49 Jewish cemeteries. I used that website today to search for
several of my extended family members, only to find that the data was not totally
correct. The dates of birth and death for the three subjects were correct, as was
the name of the cemetery, BUT their spouses were listed incorrectly. This is just
a small sampling of the database, but you should be aware that some of the data may
not be reliable.

Barbara Zimmer

MODERATOR NOTE: We all know that databases, especially new ones often have
challenges. The website for The New Haven Jewish Cemetery Database has contact
information for the database managers. If you find a problem with information on
this or any other database, you should contact the managers of that database.

Re: History of a business in Provincetown, Massachusetts, 1930's #general

Sometimes just Googling a topic will bring up a very helpful piece of information
regarding your inquiry which will enhance what you know about a family business.
Naturally, researchers want details of a specific business, but there are also
details to be learned of the general nature of the business which are important
too.

In regard to the fishing business, there is an article >from "Fortune Magazine"
which discusses the fishing business in 1935 and the early 20th Century:
http://features.blogs.fortune.cnn.com/2012/09/09/from-the-drought-an-opportunity-fortune-1935/
(MODERATOR: https://tinyurl.com/qcutkmp )
It gives much insight into the nature of the ups and downs of the business and its
prognosis for the future.

In addition, there is a site "I Am Provincetown" which provides info on the
fisheries industry in the town:

Sarah and David ABRAMOWITZ- New Haven, Ct. USA end 19th cent #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

Still searching for descendants of my greatgrandfather's siblings,David and Sarah
ABRAMOWITZ. The details which I know are as follows:

Sarah and David (presumed name) came with their widowed (or remarried) mother
sometime during the latter part of the 19th cent. between (1860-1880 ?) to the USA
from eastern Europe (probably via Liverpool). They had two younger brothers, Meyer
(my grandfather) and Kalman (with who I do have contact).

Sarah, I don't know her married name, lived on Coney Island and belonged to a
Yiddish literary circle in NYC during the 1930s. She had a grandson , Tom, who
lived and/or studied in College in Boston who was single in the early 1930s. May
have had a non-Jewish father.

David reportedly left New Haven to find his fortune in Boston and supposedly rose
with the ranks of management in a retail business there. In the late 1920s he had a
summer home an/or vacationed in Florida.

If any of the above sound familiar or anyone have suggestions how with these scant
bits of information I can continue (or can help me find) I would appreciate it.

TIA

Yoni Ben-Ari, Jerusalem

Re: History of a business in Provincetown, Massachusetts, 1930's #general

Stephen Katz
 

As explained in her post of 26 October, Joan Rosen is seeking information about a
business in Provincetown, Mass., in the 1930s, Cape Cod Fisheries. One often useful
resource for genealogists researching businesses are corporation records maintained
by the relevant state authorities. Not all businesses formally incorporated;
however, when researching a business, it is worthwhile checking corporate filings
in the event that the business had incorporated.

In Massachusetts, corporate filings are made with Office of the Secretary of State,
Corporations Division. That Division maintains several online databases; see
http://www.sec.state.ma.us/cor/corsearch.htm. I checked two of them, the
"Corporate Database" and the "Corporation Card File Database," and came up with a
possible lead for Joan. Searching for "Cape Cod Fisheries" in the Corporate Card
File led to an index card for "Cape Cod Fisheries, Inc." of Provincetown, organized
on 29 November 1933. The database does not indicate the officers or other
principals of the corporation, but Joan might wish to contact the Corporations
Division to ask if records of the corporation are still available and how she might
be able to receive copies.

The Corporation Card File Database and the Corporate Database produced information
about another company, "Cape Cod Fisheries Co.", located at 33 Fish Pier, Boston.
The data for this company indicate that it was originally incorporated in 1943 as
"Nagco Fisheries, Inc." and changed its name to "Cape Cod Fisheries Co." in 1944.
It thus might not be the business that Joan is looking for.

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

Have you found the family in the 1910 census? Column 10 lists how many shildren the
mother had, and column 11 lists how many are still living. It is not always correct,
but it confirms the additional child, then it is worth the effort to try to find her.

Restoration of Jewish Matriky Czech National Archives #austria-czech

danielat1@...
 

I met with Dr Lenka Matusikova and Dr Michal Durovic on Monday morning here in Prague to discuss
the latest round of restoration. They showed me the 200 acid free (flat) boxes sitting in a corridor upstairs
which will be folded and the Matriky inserted shortly. Each Matrik or register of the Vital Records has been
measured individually to fit into each archival box made here on order by a Czech company. Dr Durovic is
head of the conservation department at the National Archives and he actually made up one box to show me
how it will work. It was a smaller size than the usual Matrik for an Index book.
These boxes will store 200 of the Jewish Matriky which are loose leaved and unbound and have been in a
terrible state as a result of years of use.
Ten Matriky have also been completely restored by conservation both in the laboratory of the Archives and
by commissioned private restorers. The last such Matrik is expected to be delivered next week and then
Dr Durovic has promised me a final report.
Some of you have contributed as I have to these restoration efforts by donating funds and I am happy to
send you more information off list if you are interested.
