Re: Surname change in US Naturalization papers #general

Barbara <bj1friends@...>
 

"Rob Weisskirch asked about a name change >from Max CHARCHIRIN to Max
FISHKIN indicated on his naturalization papers, and whether that's
all that was required for a change of name vs. the formal process
used nowadays."

Any US citizen can change names informally at any time, provided that
it is not for purposes of fraud. A court order is not required.

My father and his two brothers changed their last name >from SLONIMSKY
to SLOAN in the late 1930's or early 1940's. They never went to court
to make it "legal," but it was legal anyway. My father enlisted in
the Army in the early 1940's under the name SLOAN, while one of my
uncles used SLONIMSKY. Therefore, their cemetery plaques
have SLOAN for dad and SLONIMSKY for my uncle.

My father's first name was also changed informally. He was named
Louis on his birth certificate in 1917, but by the 1920 census he is
called Lawrence. I only knew him as Larry and Larry is the name on
the cemetery plaque as well.

FTDNA, Geni.com and the AustriaCzech SIG #austria-czech

E. Randol Schoenberg
 

This week, FamilyTreeDNA and Geni.com announced a joint program to
integrate dna with the family trees on Geni. Because so many of us in
the Austria-Czech SIG are on Geni, and the tree is so densely populated,
I think this might be a great way for us to make further advances.

If you have taken a dna test with ftdna, please upload the data to your
Geni account. For instructions, see the blog at
https://www.geni.com/blog/geni-adds-dna-to-the-world-family-tree-394127.html

For those who have tested at 23andme and Ancestry, or elsewhere, you can
also upload your raw data to Geni. The processing will take a while so
the autosomnal results may not show up for a month or so.

We=E2=80=99ll have to see how this plays out, but here is how I think it
might work for us. Let=E2=80=99s say you have a branch of your tree
that traces back to a certain ancestral town, and the trees for the
people >from that town are well filled out and interconnected. You may
come up with a autosomnal dna match with someone who has no apparent
direct blood relationship on the tree, but when you use the Geni
relationship finder, you may discover that the person is a cousin of a
cousin and that your families both lived in that town. This relationship
path might help you identify a likely location for the match. It gives
you a clue which direction to look for finding the common ancestor.
Without the interconnected World Family Tree on Geni, you may ever have
found that clue, so this could be a unique tool.

Feel free to post any success (or non-success) stories to the SIG so we
can all learn >from each other's experiences.

assistance at Zentralfriedhof Vienna #austria-czech

Milton Koch
 

My wife and I just returned >from a trip to Vienna. We went to the
cemetery to visit my grandfather's, great-grandfather's and great
grandmother's grave sites.
We were assisted in our search- though we had grave locations already
from JOWBRR- by Chaim Tetruashvili. He had been mentioned in a previous
post as a person who is in the office and available to assist in grave
site searches. I corresponded with him in advance.
He was available for us, reviewed my names and the locations in his
database. Then he walked with us, through this huge cemetery, to all of
our family sites. He even went with us to an older section, which is
very poorly marked-Tor 1- to look for two more sites, and he was
successful as well.
Anyone who is planning a visit should definitely communicate with him.
He is eager to be of help and feels very good about
his ability to assist people in visiting their family grave sites. He is
an asset to those of us looking for our families.

Re: Kasniercy or Kasnierey?? #hungary

Alicia Weiss
 

Greetings,

A Sh'arit ha-pl'atah entry for one of my ancestors lists his birthplace as
Kasniercy. I have assumed this is an error in transcription or communication, as
I do not receive any hits on Google for such a place.

I have been under the impression he was born in Kaposmero, but perhaps I am
mistaken

An "Additional List of Buchenwald Survivors" notes his last known place as
Kasnierey, which I am also unable to identify. The only Google hits I get for this
spelling are other references to this record. Can anyone suggest the correct name
of a town in Hungary to which this might refer?

Thanks very much in advance,
