Russian Army records - 1878/9 - available somewhere? #general

wilsonettess@...
 

Advice please.

A friend has her grandfather's Russian Army book (he was born in
1876 in Leczna then considered Russia now Poland) - whereby it
states that her grandfather served in the Russian Army 14th Battery
Reg. 1897-1898.

Is there any possibility that paperwork exists somewhere that would
show exactly his army record at that time?

Please contact me privately with any information.

Thank you.

experience and research, in New York State, when a parent died and the
child has financial assets, the surviving parent may be named as
guardian of the child and those assets."

I wonder how common and widespread this is - my great-grandmother living
in what was Galicia and then Poland, was, in 1920, also named as
guardian of her minor children after the death of her husband.

Thanks to the many who replied with suggestions, both privately and on
the list! The consensus seems to be that (a) naming of a parent as
legal guardian was not unusual in matters of inheritance; (b) that I
can get probate and guardianship records >from the Sullivan County
court to learn more; and (c) that "Sallie" in that era was indeed a
diminutive of Solomon.

Teschen-Silesia GRONNER #germany

Sam <yo_sam2077@...>
 

I have been led to believe that many of the German-speaking Jews
in Teschen-Silesia during the latter half of the 19th century
operated successful businesses that supplied equipment for farming
and agriculture.

I have so far not established the profession of my great-grandfather
Hermann GRONNER (born 1862, deported and killed at Terezin in 1942).

A search is underway in the Cieszyn archives but so far inconclusive.
I'd be curious to know whether fellow GerSigs can point to secondary
sources about the Teschen Jewish business community around 1900.

Searching for artist Jeno/Janos TABOR #hungary

saluki71@...
 

I am looking for information pertaining to my paternal grandfather who
was >from the Budapest area. Jeno/Janos tabor was a very prominent
political cartoonist and graphic artist before the war and he escaped to
Buenos Aires where I believed he died in the 1960's. He had a sister
Ella and a nephew Stephen Davidson who resided in the London area at
that time. I believe the nephew still may live in England and I would
love to be able to locate him as well.

Do you have ancestors from Schopfloch? #germany

Lin <lin2@...>
 

Dear GerSIG Friends,

I received an email today >from two researchers who are making a
documentary about a language that was spoken by the cattle dealers in
Schopfloch. I know some of you have Schopfloch residents in your family
tree. I was told "the background of this film is the history of the
Jewish population in this little German town and the documentation of
the large Jewish cemetery there." They finished the German version of
the film and they are at the stage of finalizing the English version.
For this film they need a lot of information, documents , photos etc.
about the Jews of Schopfloch.

The gentleman's name is Michael Hanan and his email is
available >from me on request.

He wrote me as I registered on the Jewishgen family finder for
Schopfloch because I was told by a researcher that my BUEHLERS >from
Kleinerdlingen may have originally been SCHWEIZERS/ SCHWEITZERS >from
Schopfloch, but come of the information I've received conflicts with
other information. I certainly no family stories or photos >from
Schopfloch, but I'm certain some of you do.

Thanking you in advance for any help you can give to Mr. Hanan. And, if
you by any chance have any information on BUEHLERS >from Kleinerdlingen
descending >from SCHWEIZERS/ SCHWEITZERS >from Schopfloch, please get in
touch with me. All the best on a chilly Palm Bay afternoon,

Re: Birth Certificates and Passports #bessarabia

Hi Yefim.

Thanks, it's interesting to know that you never heard of birth certificates >from 19th century Bessarabia.
Now I don't feel so bad that I can't find those of my grandparents!

Actually, someone wrote to me saying that he thinks the "passports" WERE for internal, not external use,
and gave me a link to look at one. Here is his info:

From: Miller Ronald ron@...
Gale,
I believe the reference is to the Russian internal passports.....

Whether this is true in general is unclear, but in my personal experience
and research, in New York State, when a parent died and the child has
financial assets, the surviving parent may be named as guardian of the child
and those assets.

My grandmother died suddenly in 1931, at the age of 31, leaving behind a
husband and 3 children. the children each had some money in savings accounts
and in addition, each received about $1,000. >from her estate. I have
documents showing that three months later, my grandfather was appointed as
guardian of my mother (his daughter), then 5 1/2 years old. I also have the
bank book for the account that was set up for her financial assets.
