1930 Brooklyn, NY Directory Request #general

Pam Markowitz
 

Dear Genners,
If anyone has a 1930 Brooklyn Directory I would be most appreciative of any listed
addresses for any Martin Gambergs. I have written to both the NY Public Library
and Brooklyn Public Library and they have not been responsive. If you will be
visiting either of the main libraries perhaps the information could also be
obtained in that manner. I want to thank anyone that responds to me at my email
address in advance for your time spent researching this for me.

MODERATOR NOTE: Please respond privately. Please contact Pam before you do any
work to make sure that it has not already been done.

I've been trying for many years to identify a family member who most likely
changed or Americanized his surname while living in the Boston area in the early
1900s. I've obtained names of quite a few potentials for the family member in
question, but most records don't pan out as being related, or the trail
disappears completely, suggesting a possible name change.

New information is that a relative named Marvin GORE visited the Boston relatives
almost fifty years ago (1960s), and says, "I think I recall that they owned a
department store, Freddlies or something like that."

Re: Petition for Naturalization #general

Ira Leviton
 

Dear Cousins,

Susan Silberstein received copies of her grandmother's petition for naturalization
from the U.S.C.I.S. which were very faded and blurred, and may have more
information that simply can't be read.

I see two possible solutions. One is to ask the U.S.C.I.S. for better copies,
which may not be possible. The Immigration and Naturalization Service, which
became the U.S.C.I.S., received old-fashioned carbon copies of documents, which
frequently deteriorate over time, so 60 or 100 years later, the best copy may not
be very good.

But the original documents are either still at the court where the document was
filed, or at that court's archive, and are usually in much better shape. (I hope
that at least the name of the court is readable on the document Susan has!) If
it's a federal court, then that court's archive is often the closest branch of
NARA.

If you're willing to spend the money, it's still often a good idea to get documents
from both the court archive and the U.S.C.I.S., because although the court will
have the originals, which make for much better copies, the U.S.C.I.S. will often
have supporting or other documents that are not in the court file, and a photo
that was attached to the copy, but not to the original. I believe that the photo
requirement started in 1924.

Looking for Semen Rechitskiy & Lev Ladyzhenski re Yad Vashem info #general

Sharen Hogarth
 

Hoping that a member of the group may know the above-named individuals.

Semen Rechitski provided testimony on Khaim Rechitskiy >from Bobrovyy Kut. I cannot
locate him at the address noted in his testimony or, U.S. directories and google
searches. I am fairly certain that Khaim was a relative.

Lev Ladyzhenski provided testimony re his grandmother, Ester Ladyzhenskaya, and
given his information, it is very likely that she was my great aunt. Although it
appears that Lev provided his address, it is in a language that I cannot read...
possibly Russian.

Any help will be much appreciated.

SIEGELMAN - unknown; KARMAT - Bobrovvy Kut.

more FINEMAN: Levy, Epstein, Greenspan #general

MandJMeyers <mandjmeyers@...>
 

I spent a few hours at the NYC archives yesterday and unearthed some new leads for
the family of Abraham FINEMAN, brother of my GGM Rachel Meyers (daughter of Yehuda
Prushkin and Rose Fineman). Abraham apparently took his mother's surname.

3 new leads to follow:
Abraham, who died in 1909 after being hit by a subway train at 42nd street station,
was married to the former Taube (Tillie) EPSTEIN (c1875-1942), daughter of Louis
and Hanna (nee MARCUS-SPITZ). On Tillie's death certificate, it states that she is
buried in Cedar Park Cemetery (NJ) and that the source of information was her son
George Fineman, who lived on Lafayette Avenue in Cliffside Park, NJ.

Tillie's daughter Gertrude N Fineman (b.1901) married Isadore Greenspan in 1933.
Isadore was born in Baltimore in 1893 to Louis and Jennie Greenspan. Both bride
and groom were living on Riverside Drive in 1933. Gertrude's sister Rose was a
witness.

Tillie's daughter Stella Abby Fineman (b.1910) married Bernard Levy in 1936.
Bernard was the son of William and Fanny.
