ROSENBLATT-WALLACH early marriage #usa

John Anderson
 

I am trying to track down the marriage of Henry (Herz, Heinz)
ROSENBLATT, born c. 1822 in Hebel, Wabern, Hessen, Germany, to Amelia
(Emelia, Malchen) WALLACH, born c. 1822 in Falkenburg, Hessen,
Germany.

My understanding is that they married in Syracuse, Onondaga County,
New York, c. 1850. They had a daughter, Jenny, who was supposedly born
in 1851 in Binghampton, Broome County, New York.

The family left for Australia in 1854, but >from Liverpool, England.
from there, they emigrated to South Africa. I have informatino about
this family in both Australia and South Africa; just nothing about the
USA.

Herz was the son of Meier (Meyer) ROSENBLATT (1781-1869) and Juttchen
PLAUT (1788-1851).

I have no source material indicating that they actually went to NY
from Germany, nor do I know anything about a move to England. In
truth, I cannot find any marriage information anywhere, and don't know
what to think.

Any and all ideas and suggestions are welcome.

Phyllis Kramer phylliskramer1@gmail.com wrote in response to a question >from
David Lewin You might send a NARA inquiry to determine if they have the
Passport numbers.

NARA (as does Ancestry and FamilySearch) only has the passport applications up
to the early 1920s and after that they remain at the Passport Bureau which is
part of the US Department of State.

Up until the 20th century passports were for the most part not required
although people did obtain them as a form of identification and proof of
citizenship when traveling aboard. The actual rules varied at different times
which I believe NARA and the State Department detail.

Looking at the applications they are numbered consecutively as opposed to
starting over each year. I am not sure if those numbers translate across to
the actual passport but the ones that NARA has have been named indexed and are
searchable on those sites. The applications that NARA has on microfilm are
identical to the ones that are online today. (Many years ago during one of
the Washington DC conferences I went to NARA and got my great great uncle's
applications off the microfilm long before they went online and after that
looked at the online versions years later.)

What some of you may be interested to learn though is that passport
applications are public record if you can confirm that the person is deceased
and a relative. I sent away for an received both my great grandfather and my
grandparents' passport applications >from the 1920s and 1930s. I had to
provide proof they were deceased and in the case of my great grandfather I
sent a New York Times listing for his estate that mentioned my father which
they seemed to accept as proof.

Since I did it years ago my experience might be slightly out of date but it
was a very laborious process. As I recall you could apply directly to the
Passport Bureau or via the State Department and someone told me going via
State was better. For my great grandfather I gave the dates, where he lived
and his basic details and I got the dreaded "not found" letter. Later I was
able to find his return to the USA on the passenger list and the clerks had
written in a number with a "pp" notation which turned out to be his passport
number. I resubmitted the request highlighting a printout of the passenger
list and I got it. As I recall it took almost a year and even then I had
to work with a very nice woman at the State Department who pushed the
Passport Bureau to fulfill the request. A year after that I got a second
copy in the mail >from the Passport Department as well.

The applications show things such as their name, the date of birth, where
they were born, their naturalization if they were foreign born, current
address and their plans for the trip aboard. I had hoped my great
grandfather would be specific to a town where be was born but he was not.
He actually had filed twice for a passport for two different trips he made
to Europe in the 1920s. The applications in this period have a photo too.

I do not recall ever seeing any passport files at the New York Public Library
and I do not believe they could have anything different than what is today on
Ancestry.

I submit this because I consider passports one of those overlooked resources
that few people use in their research.

Is there anywhere I might learn who the holder of USA Passport number
028017978 in early 1900's might have been?
US passport applications through 1925 are held at NARA in Washington DC. In
addition to containing a wealth of genealogical information, the later
applications include a photo.

The identity of my 3rd great grandmother #ukraine

Claudia Bullock <cbulloc8@...>
 

My 3rd great grandfather was Rabbi Moses Katzenellenbogen, who studied
at the Volozhyn yeshiva under its founder, and later served as ABD in
Krementchug, Russia (Ukraine), where his only daughter (Eve Leah
Katzenellenbogen) was born around 1825-1829. I know quite a bit about
Rabbi Moses Katzenellenbogen, as well as his daughter, and all of her
descendants, and yet I have never been able to determine who his wife
was, and would very much like to know. Rabbi Moses was exiled at some
point and lived in many places including settling at some point at
Frankfurt Aum Main, where he had a number of books published. Eve
Leah was married to the Rev. Wolf Marcus Spero, with her first child
born in Germany and her 2nd child born in Jutland, Denmark, and later
settling in England, which is where her remaining children were born,
and where she is buried. Her death record has been indexed, however,
the record that is available online does not give the names of her
parents. I could order the official death certificate, but I don't
know if it would include the names of her parents since it is my
understanding that British death certificates usually don't include
the parents names, and perhaps if the parents names were on the death
certificate they would have been transcribed onto the index as well.

So... I'm thinking that a better option might be to try to locate a
birth certificate for Eve Leah, >from Krementchug, Russia, although I
do not know if this would be possible to find, and I'm not sure where
to look to find such a thing. I have tried searching online in the
past but have had no luck with it.

Any advice on how I might learn the identity of my 3rd great
grandmother, wife of Rabbi Moses Katzenellenbogen, and mother of Eve
Leah (Katzenellenbogen) Spero would be much appreciated. My thought
is that if she married a Katzenellenbogen, that surely this would have
been an arranged marriage and that she had to be >from a rabbinical
family as well.

JewishGen Future Scholars Fellows - Day 2 Recap #lodz #poland

Nancy Siegel
 

After a delicious breakfast, and optional Shacharit prayer service at
the Nozyk Synagogue, the JewishGen Future Scholars Fellows visited the
POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews to learn about more than
1,000 years of Jewish life in Poland. In the afternoon, they began
their journey toward Lublin.

Along the way, they visited the Jewish Cemetery in Markuszow, which
provided a powerful contrast to the Warsaw Okopowa Cemetery.
Additionally, the Fellows will be decoding a particularly unique
Matzevah (tombstone) >from this cemetery as part of an evening session
next week, so this stop provided some on-site context.

In advance of arriving in Lublin, the Fellows read a fascinating
article written in 1957 by AC Majzels (faculty member Dr. Dan Oren's
Lublin-born grandfather), in which he recalled the Jewish Lublin of
his youth in the early 20th century. The article can be accessed here:
https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/lublin/AC_Majzels.html .

Once in Lublin, the Fellows visited the still-standing home of Dr.
Oren's grandparents, the place where a Sukkah was constructed and,
among other things, the building that housed the Yavneh School
(religious Zionist) on whose board AC Majzels served, and with whom he
is shown in the accompanying photograph.

After checking in to the Hotel Ilan (which occupies the famous
Chachmei Lublin Yeshiva), and dinner, the Fellows had an evening
session with Studnia Pamieci (Well of Memory) organizer Teresa
Klimowicz. Teresa has devoted a significant amount of time to cleaning
cemeteries and preserving Jewish memory in Poland, and her powerful
presentation was extremely well received.

Tomorrow, the Fellows will tour additional sites in Lublin, visit the
old Synagogue and cemetery in Tarnow, and eventually make their way to
Krakow for Shabbat.
