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

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.

Rezi (Does anyone know the origin of this name)? Rezi could very well
be short for Reizel , which is a rose in Yiddish. If you search for
Reizel in Hebrew, you will find a lot of Reizel Rosa.
Also, possibly short for Regina. I had an Aunt Reggie who spelled her
name with a z.

Yad Vashem does not post family trees. What Yad Vashem posts are Pages of
Testimony commemorating individual victims of the Holocaust, written by
relatives or friends after the war. These often contain valuable
genealogical information, of course, but they are not family trees. The link
is:

http://db.yadvashem.org/names/search.html?language=en

What your cousin may have been referring to are the family trees collected
by Beit Hatfutsot, the Museum of the Jewish People in Tel Aviv. This body
does urge the Jewish public to send in family trees. I have no further
information about this and couldn't find any way to search the trees online.
However, there is a search request form on the website and contact
information. The link is:

I have no affiliations with either of the two organizations mentioned above.
