Sarah Freidin and Jacob Freidin #general

sapak001@...
 

Ship manifests and death records for Sarah FREIDIN and Jacob FREIDIN.

Looking for death records for Sarah FREIDIN, born about 1863 in Russia.
Immigrated to London 1888-1889 with husband (Isaac LANDAU, or LANDAW), and
children, Solomon, Sarah and Isreal. Six more children were born in London:
Yetta, Hyman, Mordecai, Rose, Hary, and Philip. The family changed their
name to FREIDIN and immigrated to the USA . Sarah came with the children in
1901-1902. The family lived at 239 Monroe, NYC. She died in late May or
early June 1902 in the New York Metropolitan Hospital. At that time her name
was Sara FREIDIN; her husband had become Jacob FREIDIN; the children were:
Sydney, Sadie, Fred, Nettie, Bob, ?, Rose, Harry, and Phil.

Also looking for death records for Jacob FREIDIN (or FREDIN), born as Isua
(Isaac) LANDAU about 1865 in Homel, Russia (Gomel, Belarus). He, Sarah,
Solomon, Sarah (daughter), and Israel immigrated to London about 1888-1889.
He bought passports in the name of FREIDIN and he (now Jacob FREIDIN) and
son, Solomon (now Sydney FREIDIN) came to the USA, together or separately,
about 1900-1901. (Naturalization Papers for Sydney say he came through
Toronto and into New York City on 14-15 July, 1901.)

I see no mention of Jacob or his wife, Sarah after 1902. Would love to find
ship's manifests and death notices for them.

Finding travel documents of Sam Yaffey #general

Stanley Baldinger <sjbaldinger@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I have been searching for over 2 years for the travel documents of my
maternal grandfather Sam Yaffey (Shakhna Iofe or Ioffe, b. 1856), his wife
Rose (Rise Rochl/Rocha Risila Kaplitz b.1862), and daughters Anna Bertha
(Chana Busa, b.1884), Sora Gena (Sara Hannah, b. 1885), Lizzie (Chaya Leah,
b. 1888), and Etel (Ethel, b. 1891) >from Jonava, Lithuania. I have a copy of
my grandfather's Application for Naturalization filed with the District
Court of Grand Forks, ND on 06 November 1893. In the document, he claims to
have entered the US at New York in July 1892. I have checked the Steve Morse
website for New York and Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore and other ports,
but unsuccessfully. I have also checked Castle Gardens records as well as
NARA. My grandfather was educated as a teacher-rabbi at the Slobodka Yeshiva
(Vilijampol?) near Kaunas.

I assume the family came to America as a unit in 1892, but the US censuses
of 1900, 1910, and 1920 give differing dates: 1894, 1896 and 1897. Of these
dates, only the 1894 date seems feasible for my grandmother and four to six
daughters to have come to America to join her husband. The latter two dates
are unlikely as my grandmother was pregnant with her sixth daughter in Grand
Forks in 1897 and was living with the family in St. Paul, MN in 1898.

I appreciate any help any Genners can give me. Thank you in advance.

Access to Jacobi Papers at IIJG (Israel) #general

Ken Falkson <mokmanrs@...>
 

Hello all. I am looking for advice on gaining access to the Jacobi
Papers at the International Institute for Jewish Genealogy, specifically
the "monographs" on European rabbinical lineages. Does anyone have
experience gaining access to them? My understanding >from the website is
that the documents may not be taken >from the library or copied in any
fashion. Is there any way then to look at these documents without
actually going to the library? I do not live in Israel so that is not a
possibility for me.

I am specifically interested in "The Jaffe Family" monograph, and
perhaps "The Falk "C" (Kohenite [priestly]) Family".

Thank you.

To all of you wonderful fellow JewishGenners who have responded so
quickly to my request for help in locating the lost cousin of a friend,
Dany Aharon, in Israel, a very great thank you! You are indeed an
incredible group!

This is to let you know Dany Aharon has been located, and a generous
member in Israel has even volunteered to call him tomorrow, as we are
not sure of the language in which he can communicate.

Thank you, thank you all, >from the bottom of my heart, and that of my
friend. You have all done a great mitzvah!

Gratefully,

Re: Finding Vital Records in the United States #general

Emily Garber
 

Chuck Weinstein added some good information about New York City vital
records to the discussion about finding USA vital records. I do
believe, however, that he may be incorrect in saying that: "There is
no published index for births occurring after 1910 in New York City."

In fact, FamilySearch has microfilmed the indexed records. While they
have not yet digitized and posted these online, a finding aid for the
NYC birth record indices is online at
https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/1295570?availability=Family%20History%20Library

(MOD: http://tinyurl.com/qby5mzp)

In the USA (and several other countries) one may borrow these films
from the Family History Library for viewing at any affiliated local
facility.

The finding aid (they also have them for NYC death and marriage
records) provides the film numbers where the indices are published.
The indices for births and deaths goes through 1965. Marriages through
1937. I blogged about this last spring:

http://extrayad.blogspot.com/2013/04/new-york-city-vital-record-indices-1949.html

(MOD: http://tinyurl.com/nvd2okr)

Warren Blatt has also provided an InfoFile on JewishGen that provides
the Family History Library film numbers for both indices and
certificates, themselves.
