Yizkor Book Project, July 2015 #warsaw #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As you will see below, the Yizkor Book Project added in quite a few new
projects over the previous month. I would like point out two of these in
particular - the first, a book prepared by Melvyn Conroy on eugenics and how
it relates to the Holocaust - an amazing document and the second book, an
amazing document for different reasons, written by a Holocaust survivor,
Mordechai Lustig >from Novy Sacz, which has been translated and kindly
donated to our project by Bill Liebner.

June 2015, also saw the culmination of 15 years of dedicated work by Suzanne
Scheraga as the book she has coordinated over all those years - the Goniadz
Yizkor book "Our Hometown Goniondz" - has now been completely translated and
appears online. My congratulations go out to Suzanne for pressing on
regardless and seeing her goal achieved, bringing undoubted benefit to those
of you with roots in this community.

And on complete translations - we have kindly received the complete
translation >from Nathen Gabriel of the Ternivka, Ukraine Yizkor Book - "Our
town Ternovka; chapters of remembrance and a monument" - which is also now
completely online. With two additional books added to our "completed
projects" list, we now have well over 100 such projects online and,
hopefully, within the next few months a number of other projects will join
this group. Yes, the work goes on with volunteer and paid translators
continuing their important work every month, and through them, we meet our
goals.

Finally, for those attending the IAJGS Conference in Jerusalem, I wish you a
rewarding and enjoyable experience and for those who plan to be at the
Yizkor Book Birds of a Feather meeting on Thursday the 9th, I definitely
look forward to meeting up with you.

Re: Divorce Records New York #general

to annulment.

You can visit the Kings County Clerk's Office at 360 Adams
Street, Brooklyn, and review the index cards that indicate whether
there is a divorce or annulment record

If there is, the card will give you an index number and may
indicate whether a divorce or annulment was granted.

That's all the information you can get easily. If you want to get the
actual file, access is restricted by New York state law

I am feeling compelled to reply again to clarify the general information
so other people who might want to work on divorce files in Brooklyn
can know what my experiences have been at the court.

I was there about two months ago for the last time and have been there before.
There are index cards for the probate files but I have never seen index
cards for divorces. They are in a different area of the building
(probate vs. divorces) and the divorce files are on microfiche
(at least for the earlier years into the 1930s or later).

You go to the counter and you have to give them a photo ID and they give
you the fiche cards and you can stand at the readers and search the
listings which are alphabetical by the family name. Mostly they are in date
order but there are some early years which are out of order and the clerk
helped me figure it out because the notes were sort of cryptic.

If you find the case in the index you can also access the minutes of the
court which shows when the hearings were scheduled and the outcome.
So you can see if and when the court granted a decree. This portion is in the
public record for anyone to see.

The files themselves are sealed for 100 years. In theory after that you
should be able to access them but I say in theory because a large
portion of the court's records were destroyed in a warehouse fire recently.
The court is still struggling to establish exactly what was lost but a
large portion of old files were destroyed if they were in off site storage.
(Thankfully the probate files are all on site and were not damaged.)

from the minutes I have been able to see if the case was contested or if
there were even hearings or if it was the forerunner of the modern
day no fault divorce. I recently saw an interlocutor divorce >from 1913
which was in effect a situation where the two parties tell the court we
can not stay married and the court made them wait six months and then
if they still said the marriage did not work the court granted the divorce.
In other cases I have in New Jersey for example seen divorces were cruelty
and drunkenness were accused as means for the divorce. Since in those
cases it was not no fault each side made up some wild stories that
sounded like a soap opera.

On the divorces it also is worth exploring if either party ever remarried.
If they admitted to being divorced the clerks generally asked for the
details of the divorce. So on the later marriage licenses you may find the
date the divorce decree was granted as well as the name of the court
that granted it. By the nature of the acct I do not think they had to report
an annulment.

Someone suggested that it might only have been a religious Get and not
a divorce in the courts. That would be ok if they parties were not
going to remarry but to remarry as I said they have to prove they
were divorced.

TERNER from Kolomea #general

The daughter of Aaron Hisler, a man who was involved with the Joint
Kolomear Relief, posted on the Kolomea KehilaLink a "List of Jewish
Survivors >from Kolomyji and Their Former Addresses as Kolomyji Residents"
which she translated >from the Polish into English.
http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Kolomea/kol_surv.htm#T

One of the names was "TERNER, A. IZRAELA, Nowy Swiat, 17." My family of
TERNERs also lived on Nowy Swiat. I thought I'd take a chance and ask if
anyone knows what happened to this person after the war? Aaron has long
since passed and his daughter only had his papers to work >from so any
information would be appreciated. I have often seen records which add an
"a" at the end of a name, regardless of gender so it might be Israel TERNER.

If anyone has any information, please contact me directly. Thank you.

Intro: Wilhelm Alexander OPPENHEIM

I am preparing an article about the families OPPENHEIM, HEIDENHEIM and
ROSENBERG in Chemnitz. The families lost four sons in the fights of the
World War I: Fritz Oppenheim, Walter and Karl Heidenheim and Hans Rosenberg.

Dr. Wilhelm Alexander Oppenheim, the younger son of Hugo Max and Bertha
Oppenheim, emigrated abt. 1939 to England. I believe, he died in 1941
there. He was married with Ilsa Marie EINSTEIN. They had one son: Rainer
Fritz Alexander, b. 1937 in Chemnitz. In 1940 they lost the german
citizenship.

I am looking for anybody, who knew Wilhelm Alexander OPPENHEIM and his
wife or could help me to come in contact with Rainer, called later Ray.

All advice and information are very welcome.
Thank you very much in advance!

immigration and naturalization record for HARTMAN from Thuringen, Germany #germany

Reminder to all: Last names (HARTMAN, EPSTEIN) should be typed with all
capital letters in Email to this list. No other text in all capitals.

Hello fellow GerSIG members,

I have been unable to find an immigration record or a naturalization record
for my great aunt Hetty (Hedwig or Hettie) HARTMAN (born 1886). Reportedly,
she came to New York City on her own >from Germany at approximately age 14 to
her uncle Joseph EPSTEIN in Manhattan (i.e.around 1900). I know for sure she
was living in NY in 1905 (verified on the NY state census.) It seems
unlikely to me that a 14 year old girl would travel on her own, but that is
what I was told. She lived in Ilmenau, Thuringen. She may have been born
there or possibly in Schwarza Kreis Schleusingen (now Schwarza bei Suhl) or
Barchfeld an der Werra. She was the daughter of Jenny Epstein and Moses
Hartman and a descendant of Lippman EPSTEIN ( EBZTEIN) and rabbi Moses
Michael EPSTEIN who served in Erfurt and Schwarza and died in Wurzburg.
(Moses Michael was the son of the talmudic scholar Michel JAKOB and
grandson of Koppel MOSES >from Kleineibbstadt in Unterfranken) and Fradel
daughter of Chaim Moses. Other members of the family came to the US
through Ellis Island in 1902 and 1903 and settled in Farmerville, LA. I have
immigration records for her parents and for her brother and sister, but this
one remains a mystery. This area of Thuringen was under different
administrations depending on the year (Hesse, Prussia, etc). I have tried
multiple searches through the Steve Morse site and the Ellis Island site.
Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Berlin birth and death records #germany

Roger Lustig
 

First step: determine where in Berlin the parents lived. Berlin had
several registry offices.

Next: write to the appropriate registry office.

This may be tricky unless you're closely related to the person in
question, because

a) the birth record is not available to the general public yet (110 years);

b) the family may well have moved during those years.

Did the parents marry in Berlin? Many of the marriages >from pre-1920 are
on line now.

Would anyone know the best way to get birth and death information for
someone who was born in Berlin in about 1920 and died in Berlin in
about 1933. Many thanks.

I happened upon a Helderberg News and Info Blog,

http://helderbergbasin.blogspot.com/2009/08/freidman-and-cohen-history.html ,

which covers Somerset West, Gordon's Bay, The Strand, and Cape Town.

It has an interesting article about Friedman and Cohen and their business ventures
in the Helderberg basin.
