Re: Surname "CHERRY" #general

CHERRY in Yiddish/German also translates to KIRSCH or KIRSCHEN
(plural) and KIRSTEIN which translates in French to CHIRSEN and any
variation of these names that one might think of would witness the
rule to use your imagination to think of other possibilities. My own
experience of finding my Father's second cousin who recalled hearing
his Father lament the fact that my Father had "changed" his name to
KIRSTEIN to give the family a little more panache perhaps with a name
of German sounding derivation.

Re: Seeking middle name in Hebrew #general

Gladys Paulin
 

The Hebrew name Aharon was often the basis for the Americanized names of
Harry and Herbert, using the letters "har".

There may never have been another Hebrew name given.

Re: Death Certificates/Registrations Lithuania - Help please? #general

Marcella Shames
 

Hi List

Does anyone know where or how I can apply for death
certificates/registrations or get burial information for three
people who died in Lithuania? All three people listed below died
of natural causes.

1. Pesah SHAMES d Dec 14 1935 - registered in Mazeikiai
Jewishgen has a record of his death in 1935. Would the
information on that record be all there is or would there
be more detail elsewhere - like where he is/was buried?
Parent's last names, maybe??

2. Leah Shames JOSELOVICH d 1987 Vilnius
I know nothing more about this death except parents were
Pesah SHAMES and Sore GERTSMARK

3. Hane/Chana JOSELOVICH d 1946 Vilnius
14 year-old daughter of Leah Shames (above) and Simon
Joselovich. Died of meningitis.

Any help, suggestions or ideas with the above is much appreciated

Thanks
Marcella Shames

birth vs. adoption #general

Trudy Barch
 

Hi genners,

Any knowledgeable people on birth certificates and adopted children.

A child is born - is there always a birth certificate?

Adopted at birth - is there an adopted birth certificate?

Child adopted at age 10 - is there a new birth certificate with the adopted
name?

Can the now adult child get her original birth certificate?

Thank you, Trudy Barch

You should additionally contact Mrs. Barbara Welker >from the archive

She "owns" not only the Weissensee records, eg. there are also records
of the "Jewish hospital"...

1924 Warsaw death record #general

Apollo Israel <apollo@...>
 

Robert Tachna asks how to obtain a 1924 death record listed in Warsaw's Nasz
Przeglad newspaper. According to information online, the years 1923-39 of
this newspaper are available at the YIVO Library and at Harvard's Lamont
Library, so I guess one would need to go to or contact one of those
libraries, and ask to see the original notice in the newspaper.

However, I am wondering if that is what Robert really wants, or if in fact
what he is after is actually a death certificate for his relative. While the
Polish State Archives hold vital records more than 100 years old, and
JRI-Poland has many of them indexed and has some more recent records indexed
from other sources, there is no index online as far as I know of vital
records less than 100 years old, which are held in the Civil Records Office
(Urzad Stanu Cywilnego) of each city. So if Robert wants a 1924 death
certificate, he would need to write to the Warsaw USC and ask about it.

Fortunately, the Warsaw USC has a website which has all its contact details,
and also has online (downloadable) application forms for births, deaths and
marriages. It is in Polish, but I managed to negotiate it with online
translations. The link directly to the section with the forms is:
http://usc.um.warszawa.pl/wnioski-i-dokumenty

I hope that helps!
