New Jersey Naturalizations - State Archives #general

David W. Perle
 

Hi, all. I'm trying to find the naturalization records for my
great-grandfather and his family, William David PERLE. They initially had
been in NYC and I recently posted about the rejected naturalization petition
that I had just received >from there, rejected on the grounds that they had
moved out of the jurisdiction into NJ.

I know that they had lived in Union and Bergen counties, NJ, and I spoke to
the municipal offices in both counties where naturalization records for
their jurisdictions are kept, but they said they didn't have any records for
my family.

I've also hit dead ends with National Archives. This leads me to think that
they're *probably* held by the State Archives in Newark. Unfortunately...
they don't fulfill long-distance search requests. You must go search in-person.

They provide a list of independent genealogists who sell their research
services, and I contacted a couple, but never heard back. So, I'm wondering
if anyone might know of anyone in the area who perhaps already performs
those sorts of services, hopefully for not too steep of a fee? (I'm just a
few hours away, and I have friends in Philadelphia whom I can stay with, if
it turns out that I absolutely have to go there in-person in order to search
for these records!)

Thank you!

Jewish cemeteries in Newark, NJ #general

David W. Perle
 

Hi, all. Two Newark cemetery questions below, including "Hebrew-Cem nh"
and also Grove Street Cemetery.

I'm trying to track down the resting place of my great-great-grandfather
Henry GOTTLIEB. He died in 1950 in the Newark, NJ area, specifically at
Overbrook Hospital in Cedar Grove. (Which turns out to have been an insane
asylum. Terrific. He was only there for a month. I wonder if it might
have been Alzheimer's or...who knows what!) His death certificate indicates
that he was buried at "Hebrew-Cem" and then what looks like lowercase "nh,"
so it looks like it says "Hebrew-Cem nh." No, it's not a reference to his
body having been sent up to New Hampshire, as it says that the city of
burial was Newark, NJ.

I cannot figure out what cemetery this refers to. I've corresponded with
someone at the Newark Public Library who unfortunately couldn't help with
this. (She looked up cemeteries in the city directory >from that year.)
There's a cemetery maintenance company in that area that has actually been
very helpful with a couple of other matters and the guy who runs it is said
to "know where all the bodies are buried," but I have been unable to get
information about this one.

Other avenues I've taken: There's a woman who's written a book about--of
all things--Newark-area Jewish cemeteries, but she couldn't tell me what
"Hebrew-Cem nh" might have referred to. Also, I contacted the current
incarnation of the funeral-director's company (different name of company but
the same family still runs the business), but they said they have no
information that would help to determine was "Hebrew-Cem nh" would have
referred to at that time. Further, I've scrolled through a week or more's
worth of Newark Evening News and Newark Star-Ledger issues on microfilm
looking for obituaries which might say where he was being buried (plus
anything else interesting), but I didn't find a thing; this seems odd to me
since he had supposedly been a very successful businessman, known as
something like "The Steel King of New Jersey" or some such thing, but I've
not been able to find anything about that, either. (I wonder if his having
wound up at an insane asylum might be a clue to why there perhaps was no
obituary published for him, thanks to the stigma, which would be so horribly
sad if so! Unless they were just really delayed in getting an obit printed
and I just didn't look far enough!)

So, I am at a loss here about how else I can figure out where Henry
Gottlieb is buried. Any thoughts??

Also: Henry's wife--great-great-grandmother Ida GOTTLIEB--is buried at
Grove Street Cemetery in Newark and I know exactly where she is, I have a
map. I've had a photo request up on FindAGrave.com for some months, but
wondered if anyone reading this also might be able to stop off there and
take a photo or two for me. (She died younger of a heart attack and Henry
outlived her about 21 years and remarried. I've already been told that he's
not in any of the burial records for the whole cemetery.)

Thank you!

Avshalom,
So Bennett's figures would appear to be in line with what you say
since no more than 25000 in the 14th century (1300's) falls between the
20000 you mention in 1100 and the 10000-30000 in 1500.

The cited numbers refer to Ashkenazi Jews, who are assumed to have numbered
4,000 in 1000 AD and 20,000 a hundred years later in Western Europe. In 1500
there were 10,000-30,000 Ashkenazi Jews in Eastern Europe.

I went to a lecture on Jewish genetic diseases at IAJGS in Washington
DC and they spoke about the population bottleneck that occurred twice
for Ashkenazi Jews. The numbers I heard were 20,000 Jews entering
Europe (France perhaps) and then after the Black Death, with the
murder of many Jews, a small population such that all Ashkenazi Jews
are descended >from two women about 1000 years ago. They said 12th
century in the lecture but I have heard 10th century also I believe.

Then of course as in my family, we lived in small towns and married
others >from the town and in many families, the marriages were normally
cousin marriages. In my family we are usually double/triple/quadruple
MARGOLIS descendants of our 4th great grandparents due to these cousin
marriages. My great grandparents were cousins since her grandfather
and his mother were siblings.

Searching JACOBSONS in Lithuania #lithuania

Rebecca Hauer <beccahauer@...>
 

I'm wondering if someone can help me trace my family back to
Lithuania. My ggrandfather Barnet (Dov Ber) Jacobson, born in 1873,
was the youngest of 13 children, born in the Kovno area. His parents
were Natan Pesah and Lena. He and five siblings emigrated (separately)
to the US. I haven't been successful in identifying his immigration
record - he came over between 1889 and 1892, very likely through NY.

I think we have his brother's immigration record, under last name
Jankelson (Chaim Jankelson, 27 May 1884). Another sibling's
immigration records mentions Ariogala, and another Raseiniai. I
suspect Natan Pesah Jacobson would have died in the 1890s, probably
the latter half of the decade.

Can anyone offer suggestions on where to look to find any records on
Natan Pesah and Lena, and their 13 children (born 1855-1873) in
Lithuania?

Thank you,
