Mamaliga Blues documentary in Utah #general

Cassio Tolpolar
 

Dear friends,

The documentary about my family roots in Moldova, Mamaliga Blues, is
finished, and it will be screened at the International Conference on
Jewish Genealogy in Salt Lake City. Date is July 28th, at 4:45PM.

I would love to attend it and meet some of you in person for the first
time, but I am in Brazil and will not be able to make it.

Mamaliga Blues was screened this year in 2 major events in North
America: at the Doc Shop in Canada and at the South East European
Film Festival in Los Angeles. It is also planned to play at the Miami
Jewish Film Festival in 2015. We have been planning screenings in
Brazil and New York, and looking for further opportunities to show the
film around the world :)

For more information on the film, check: www.mamaligablues.com

I hope you're able to make it to the screening!

Thanks!

listings by initials in the Social Security Death Index #general

Renee Steinig
 

I thought my recent experience might be of interest...

I had reason to look up about 70 people in the Social Security Death
Index, all born in 1945-1947. I almost missed seven of them because
they were listed by their initials -- e.g. S. H. Bloom rather than
Steven H. Bloom, W. S. Kaplan instead of William S. Kaplan, etc. If I
hadn't already know their approximate birthdates, finding these common
names would have been quite a challenge. (So far as I can tell,
there's no way to do a wild card search for initials.)

Re: Offering Look Ups at NY Public Library #general

The types of things I can get are articles >from newspapers, city
directories, phone books, state census, birth index, deaths. The
library has resources that are simply not available on line. Also it
is possible to do things like address look ups in the state census very
simply at the library. Also the library has the full 1890 Police
Census (but is it difficult to work with) which is not online at that
big commercial company database. The library has a name only birth
index, a name only death index all the way to the 1980s, etc.

Namensgebung Amtsblatt Muenster 1846 Nummer 2 01 bis 204 #germany

Lin <lin2@...>
 

Hi GerSIG Friends,

Is there a way to get a copy of pages on the Official Naming Journal of Muenster?

Also, no one has been able to trace my grandmother's (Elly HUMBERG
HERZ) father's family farther back than my great great great
grandfather. His name, depending on where you get your information was
Moses Abraham HUMBERG or Abraham Moses HUMBERG (1769 - 1847). A
distant cousin hired or worked in concert with a German genealogist
Herbert Schuurman (umlauts on both "u"s.) and that's as far as they got.
A website that deals mainly with another HUMBERG branch has our
patriarch as Abraham Moses HUMBERG but Mr. Schuuman has his name as
Moses Abraham. I am interested in finding out his actual name, and going
back farther if there is a way.

No one has been able to find where the name HUMBERG came >from or a
naming list where the first family member took the name. Any
suggestions? Thanks so much.

Best, Lin Herz, Palm Bay, Florida <lin2@...>


INTRO - researching HENRY from Germany #germany

Tim Homewood
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for 2
months. I consider myself to be a beginner in doing German Jewish
Genealogy research. I live in London, UK. My native language is English.

I consider myself expert in using a computer. My experience in using the
Internet is extensive.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of my great great
grandparents. My primary research goal is to find out the birthplaces of
my 3x great grandfather, Solomon HENRY and his wife Jane (maiden name
unknown).

The information I have so far is:
1. 1820-1823: Michael HENRY, son of Solomon, was born in Whitechapel,
London (source - various censuses)
2. about 1825: Leah HENRY (my great great grandmother) was born in
Whitechapel London (sources - various censuses)
2. 1841: Solomon HENRY is the head of the household at Leman Street,
Whitechapel, London in the 1841 census. He is 53, watch maker, born of
"Foreign Parts". His wife, Jane HENRY is 52. His daughter Leah is 16.
3. 1850: Solomon HENRY, is the father of Leah HENRY on her marriage
certificate for 28 February 1850 at the Great Synagogue in London.
Solomon's profession is Dealer.

4. 1851: Solomon HENRY is the head of the household at 190 Ratcliff
Highway, Tower Hamlets, London in the 1851 census.

*** He is 64, watch maker, born in Germany. *** Jane HENRY is 72. Leah HENRY and her husband
Lewis JACOBS are both in the household.

5. 1861: Jane HENRY is living with Lewis and Leah in Whitechapel and is
described as a Widow, implying Solomon is now dead.

I haven't found a marriage record for Solomon and Jane and I haven't
found a death record for Solomon (Jane died in 1865). Jane is always
described in the census as having been born in Middlesex however I can't
find a birth record for her (about 1789 based on census ages).

I would like to be able to trace back my family both through Solomon and
Jane and feel there should be some records in the UK that can identify
some more about Solomon's origins. So far my efforts have all been
through online indexes but I'm living in London and keen to do some on
the ground investigation. The official records seem to have very little
about the family yet they seem to have clearly been in and around London
at various times.

Any help would be appreciated.
