Seeking information on KARDONSKY #latinamerica

YaleZuss@...
 

I realize this is a long shot, but in an effort to leave no stone
unturned:

My grandfather told me he had an uncle "Shima" KARDONSKY who "went to
Argentina". The KARDONSKYs originated in Old Konstantin/Starokostjantyniv in
western Ukraine. "Shima" may have been born anywhere >from c.1860-1885.

The closest I have managed to find is a Shimon KARDONSKY who landed in
Panama. There is also a Schloime whose family went to Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Whether either of these is a serious candidate depends on whether Grandpa used
"Argentina" literally or to indicate that "Shima" went somewhere in Latin
America.

"Shima" is one of two remaining great uncles (out of ten such aunts and
uncles) that I have been unable to find and I would appreciate any assistance
in locating him.

Kaunas Inheritance Papers #lithuania

Jeremy Schuman
 

My ancestor Itsko SHUVAL (bc 1799) appears in the 1855 KOVNO (KAUNAS)
Real Estate Owners records as being the owner of house number 130 in
Kaunas. Interestingly, there is someone called Yankel Shuval who is
also listed as owning house number 130. Itsko and Yankel don't appear
to have been related on their paternal sides, and I suspect that they
may have been brothers-in-law, perhaps having inherited the house
from their father-in-law / father respectively. Does anyone know if
any inheritance papers / wills survive >from the 1820s / 1830s which
I might be able to access to shed any light on this puzzle?

Many thanks,

Re: Hungarian / Jewish Given names #austria-czech

tom
 

the short answer is "no". hungarian jews did not, as a rule, give their children
jewish and secular names that "matched" in any (obvious) way.

so there is no "magic key" that will translate one to the other. some names simply
didn't have hebrew or yiddish equivalents, like Attila or Zoltan or Magda. but,
for example, my grandfather, Simon, had a jewish name of Yehoshua. or my grandmother,
whose jewish name was Feige, had a secular name of Erzsebet. so even where the
secular name was pure biblical hebrew, that was not necessarily their jewish name.

this is very different >from the polish jews.

Hungary often people enroll foreign / Hungarian names , it turns out
that Jews holding Hungarian name was often quite different sound than
Jewish name , and this name used in official records.
I asked whether there was systematic practice using names Hungarian?
Were the certain names used replacement / parallel Jewish names?
Or in other words: When I'm looking for a man named Moshe or Meir for

Please note that I am not talking specifically about the translation
or variation of the name (also, but not only), but the whole attitude
of Hungarian name for a Jew.

Adoption of wife's surname on marriage #lithuania

Jeremy Schuman
 

My ancestor Itsko SHUVAL (bc 1799) appears in the KOVNO (KAUNAS)
records >from 1851 onwards, although I can find no trace of him
prior to that. His wife was called Rokhel Shuval, and I suspect
that she may have been a member of the large Shuval family which
had been living in Kaunas since 1812. If that theory is correct,
then presumably Itsko took on the surname Shuval when he married
Rokhel (in about 1825). Has anyone ever come across a similar
case of a man adopting his wife's surname on marriage in early
19th century Lithuania?

Re: Cyrillic font - cursive (script) #general

JONES Etienne H.L.F.
 

Hello

In a first step I suggested to Nancy, directly to her, to have a look at
http://allfont.net/cyrillic/ .

Then I self downloaded just one example of cursive (pay attention . . *not*
italic !) cyrillic fonts, namely Cyrillic Parsek I found very easy to read
and very close to a handwritten text. Moreover I sent to her an example of
cyrillic text I self wrote with a.o. the character "gué " cursive uppercase.
Unfortunately it's impossible to reproduce here all those texts because
using plain text is mandatory.

Of course I'm ready to discuss the thread with other peoples, also to
learn >from them about other possibilities - I'm sure there are, because I
didn't spent a big time to my research.

Offering Lookups (Again) at NYC Municipal Archives/NY Public Library #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I have been away >from the look up for a long time while I relocated
and now that I am barely settled in am going to try and do lookups again.

I will be available in Manhattan next Tuesday to get copies of
certificates at the NYC Municipal Archives as well as likely to be
at the NY Public Library.

If anyone needs something specific please contact me and we can
discuss if I can help you.

Anyone who has availed my services in the past knows I have a sort
of set routine. On these trips I am basically working as your eyes
and legs for people who can not get to the Archives or Library
themselves.

Generally what I do is transcribe certificates where you have
already found the numbers >from the online indexes or sometimes check
for missing records with the tools at the Archives. Yes I can
retrieve the City Clerk marriage licenses -- ie. the ones where the
indexes went on line earlier this year. As a reminder I can only
access births through 1909, marriages through 1937, City Clerk
licenses through 1929 (after that requires going to the marriage
bureau); and deaths through 1948. Also I can do naturalizations at
the NY Supreme Court which is in the same building and probates for
Manhattan. For someone who made a request I might also try NARA
this time for naturalizations.

At the Library I can access the newspapers, city directories, NY
Census and various databases plus sometimes retrieve books and make copies.

I ask everyone to cover the costs including the printing of
certificates (if you want them) which is $11 each plus a little for me
to help offset my travel costs (budgets are tight right now as I just
incurred a big move expense so I can give time but you need to cover
costs for me.) Same for copy costs at the NY Public Library.

What I do is take the details you have and in the case of the Archives
I actually look at each certificate on the microfilm before placing the
copy order to make sure it is what you said it was. Sometimes I have
to clean up errors in transcription of numbers, research >from your info
to find the correct certificate number. etc. I pay for the certificates
and then trust you to reimburse me. I can either scan and email or mail
certificates. I type notes and email.

Please understand that generic searches when you only have vague
details (like Moshie married Sally but that's all I know) or are
trying to breakdown a brickwall that you have been working at for
years requires an investment of time beyond a quick retrieval and I
cannot include in this offer.

I am always happy to discuss any and all research questions
involving NYC area look ups.
