Translation Request from Russian to English #poland

Ann Linder
 

I have a document that is in Russian printing (not script), and
Viewmate will not accept the large file. It appears to be a birth
certificate, with a date of 1899, and may be a birth certificate for a
member of the KROCHMAL family (or maybe not!). The KROCHMAL family
was >from Poland (now likely Ukraine).

If a kind researcher would be willing to translate the vital
information I can send you the document via email. I would be grateful
for help with this. Thank you.

Lithuania Internal Passports - 1919-1940 #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

Over 6,000 Lithuania Internal Passport records, 1919-1940, have been added
to the LitvakSIG All Lithuania Database and JewishGen Lithuania Database.
These records are mainly >from the following towns.

Gargzdai, Jurbakas, Kedainiai, Kretinga, Linkuva, Mazeikiai, Plunge,
Salantai, Siauliai, Skuodas.

It is time for you to search the database and see what records may be
there for your ancestors. Do not be mislead by the 1919-1940 time frame. Your
immediate family may have left Lithuania before 1919 but, in all probability,
Not everyone left. Siblings, uncles, aunts, and cousins remained and
obtained an internal passport.

These records were made available 20 months ago on the appropriate Litvak
SIG District web site. In addition to giving researchers a head start on
researching their ancestors, there are other advantages as well. Many times,
a surname search of the searchable database will not yield any results.
However, being able to see the entire list, on a district web site, will.
The main reason is spelling differences of the surname.

If you would like to become a member of a Litvak SIG District Research
Group (DRG), and be able to see all of the translated records for the group,
go to www.litavaksig.org/contribute and follow the instructions. A $100
contribution to Litvak SIG is required for each district.

Re: Do archives of the Forverts from 1923 exist online? (Or off?) #general

I have not been able to find anyplace online (or, for that matter,
offline) with archives of the Forverts >from the 1920s.

The best place to look would be the Jewish collection at the New York
Public Library. There is a whole room dedicated at the main branch
i.e. the 42nd Street Library. I know they had microfilms of Yiddish
newspapers. Not sure which titles but you could check with them.

I also know that Yivo has Yiddish newspapers but I am not sure which
ones are microfilm versus actual hard copies. I worked with them a few
years back to get a picture out of The Forward and they were able to
bring out a box containing the original 1920s newspaper. First I had
found the date and page number of the microfilms at the NY Public
Library.

Unfortunately no City Directories survive >from Brooklyn in the 1920s or
that would have been a good source.

The Brooklyn Eagle is online and can be searched but it was a general
newspaper.

The Brooklyn Public Library or Brooklyn Historical Society might have
some general resources as well.

You might also use the newspapers at FultonHistory.com as they have
some Brooklyn newspapers available.

Re: Legal Separation in Brooklyn, 1929 #general

A. E. Jordan
 

-----Original Message-----
From: Moishe Miller moishe.miller@totalben.com

... find out if Moses had any KORN siblings, either here or in Europe. I
thought that the legal separation might be an angle.

Legal separations like divorce papers would be considered confidential
and sealed records at the court (I believe). When I looked for a
divorce >from the 1930s in Brooklyn all I was able to see was the court
calendar which showed the date for the hearing and I was actually able
to see that the husband was a no show. But I could not see any of the
court papers or any details of the divorce.

Moishe wants to know if the person might have had more relatives. Have
you tried looking to see if the person had an estate or probate record?
This would exist if he died owning property or other valuables. He
did not have to have a will to have a probate case. If he died with
valuable assets but no property it would be what is called an
administration in the court's terms.

The index for Brooklyn estates is on line at the LDS site
Familysearch.org. You can go specifically to that file by using their
catalog which shows the individual files and since the Brooklyn index
is finished you can actually search it or you can browse the index
cards that were microfilmed. However only the early files were
microfilmed so the later ones require you to go to the record room at
the Court House of Adams Street in person. You give them the file
number and they retrieve it >from the basement and you sit at a table
and you can read the whole file. They permit you to take pictures of
the pages with a cell phone or tablet computer or their is a coin
operated copy machine. (No cameras however permitted in the court
house.)

If there is a will he might very well have mentioned family members in
Europe or siblings or such any where in the world.

I do these types of court house research for people as well.

Do archives of the Forverts from 1923 exist online? (Or off?) #general

amgreene@...
 

My great-grandfather Leo WERTHEIM, according to several cousins, owned
or ran a Yiddish theater in Brooklyn. But no one can remember which
one or any details.

I have found ads in the Brooklyn Standard Union >from Nov-Dec 1922 in
which he advertised "Theatre wanted in Brooklyn, with 1000-1500 seats,
location suitable for Jewish theatre and good transportation
connections."

I'm assuming that he was able to secure a place in early 1923, and
that he would have advertised the new theater in the Forverts. So that
would seem to be the next place for me to look.

Thus my question: I have not been able to find anyplace online (or,
for that matter, offline) with archives of the Forverts >from the
1920s.

Any suggestions?

Personal replies will be summarized for the list.

Thanks,
