Birth Certificate in Lodz/need to register with country if salesman? #lodz #poland

Debby Gincig Painter
 

I need help to find a birth certificate in Lodz. I was recently given a
url to a site in Holland where I think I have found another child for my
maternal grandparents.

I have been unable to find a record through the database so have
no information except approximate date of birth. Is there someone willing
to help me locate this record? this is what I translated of the Dutch site:

Source: Civil register - Death
Archive Location: Historic Centre Overijssel
General Assess Number:123
Inventory Number: 4229
City: Enschede
Type of record: death
Certificate Record Number: 191
Filing Date: 10-06-1907
Deceased: Jozef Klinger
Gender: M
Death Date: 09-06-1907
Age: 0
Death Place: Enschede
Father: Israel Moseik Klinger (We have name as Mosiek Srul)
Mother: Anna Marie Joskowitch (First time I have seen a middle name for her)
Partner:
Further information: born in Lodz (Poland Russian) 11 months old (would be
July of 1906

Also, it seems that my Great-Grandfather traveled a lot as many of his
children are born in various places leaving me to believe he was a
merchant of some sort and I guessing he must have done lots of business
in the Netherlands as it is there they go for the duration of WWI from
Alsace and where my Aunt is married. Would he have to register that he
was in the country as a "visitor" if he was a merchant there selling
his wares in those days?

Thanking all in advance

Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay Meeting
THE JGSTB LIBRARY: WHAT’S IN IT AND HOW TO USE IT
By Dr. Emil Isaacson Sunday, February 13, 2011

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay will meet at Gulf Coast Jewish Family
Services, 14041 Icot Blvd., Clearwater, Florida on Sunday, February 13, 2011. Dr.
Emil Isaacson will present a program on The JGSTB Library: What‘s In It and How Do
I Use It. A pre-program social with light refreshments and library access begins at
1:30 PM; the program starts at 2:00.

The JGSTB Library contains more than 140 genealogy resource books, many with a
specific Jewish orientation, and others of general interest to any genealogist.
Some contain actual genealogy data, and others are "how-to" or historical or
geographical books or personal memoirs.

There are numerous uses for the JGSTB Library collection. For beginners it can
provide a guide on how and where to get started with your research. For advanced
researchers many books contain valuable tips that can be used to break down brick
walls or point you in a new direction to research. Dr. Emil H. Isaacson will
discuss the most useful books in the collection and show how they can help to
fulfill your research goals. He has prepared a selective annotated bibliography
that will be distributed. Dr. Isaacson has 28 years experience in genealogy, and he
has researched his ancestral roots back seven generations to the late 1700’s in
Europe. He has been actively involved in developing the JGSTB library >from its
inception.

The purpose of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay is to assist interested
individuals in learning about Jewish genealogy and how to research and document
their own family histories. The Society does this by facilitating the exchange of
research information, encouraging and facilitating research activities, educating
members to help themselves and others, making available research resources and
materials, arranging genealogical research tours and presenting monthly programs
of interest to Jewish genealogical researchers.

Anyone interested in learning how to do Jewish genealogical research is invited to
attend. Beginners as well as experienced researchers are welcome. For further
information on the Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay or directions to the
meeting call Sally Israel at 727-343-1652.

Yizkor Book Project, January 2011 #belarus

bounce-2172994-772948@...
 

Shalom,

Well, the encouraging wide range of activity of the JewishGen
Yizkor Book Project that we saw last year, continued through January.
I'm particularly pleased to report that an additional Yizkor Book
has now been completely translated - the Ruzhany Yizkor Book.
This project was coordinated over many years by Edith Taylor and
Brian Zakem, and I have great admiration for the enviable
persistence and energy shown by them in seeing this project to its
successful completion.

In addition, I am also pleased to report that during this past month
the complete translation of the Daugavplis (Dvinsk), Latvia was
graciously donated to the Yizkor Book Project by Joel Gardner and
this translation now appears online.

Ruzhany, by-the-way, is a very successful example of a Translation
Fund which was created in order to raise funds for the professional
translation of the Ruzhany Yizkor Book.
Recently, a number of projects were added to the growing list of
Translation Funds and await your needed and most important support.
The projects recently added are Kurow, Poland; Lowicz, Poland; and
Volodymyr Volynskyy (Ludmir), Ukraine.
If you feel able to assist and these translations are important to you,
please make your donation on this page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
Many, many thanks in advance.

And on fund raising, I wish to extend my appreciation to Brian Reiser,
who is the coordinator of the Kolki, Ukraine Yizkor Book and who has
kindly prepared some helpful notes on using a Facebook "Cause" to
raise money for the Yizkor Book Translation Funds.
These notes are located at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/donation/funds_facebook.html
and presents a new (and proven by him) method of raising funds for
the Yizkor Book projects.

Finally, I would like to thank Osnat Hazan for the excellent work she
is doing in managing the YBMNI Project. She is working together with
a merry band of dedicated volunteers in extracting names >from the
online Yizkor Book projects to help build a searchable index for
the benefit of all researchers, and I have included her report
on recent additions to this index, at the end of my own.

And on volunteers - we are urgently in need of translators,
necrology transliterators and htmlers to help us with the
large volume of material that we would like to place online.
If you feel you have some time available for one of these
important tasks, I would be more than very happy to hear >from
you.

Yizkor Book Project, January 2011 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Well, the encouraging wide range of activity of the JewishGen
Yizkor Book Project that we saw last year, continued through January.
I'm particularly pleased to report that an additional Yizkor Book
has now been completely translated - the Ruzhany Yizkor Book.
This project was coordinated over many years by Edith Taylor and
Brian Zakem, and I have great admiration for the enviable
persistence and energy shown by them in seeing this project to its
successful completion.

In addition, I am also pleased to report that during this past month
the complete translation of the Daugavplis (Dvinsk), Latvia was
graciously donated to the Yizkor Book Project by Joel Gardner and
this translation now appears online.

Ruzhany, by-the-way, is a very successful example of a Translation
Fund which was created in order to raise funds for the professional
translation of the Ruzhany Yizkor Book.
Recently, a number of projects were added to the growing list of
Translation Funds and await your needed and most important support.
The projects recently added are Kurow, Poland; Lowicz, Poland; and
Volodymyr Volynskyy (Ludmir), Ukraine.
If you feel able to assist and these translations are important to you,
please make your donation on this page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
Many, many thanks in advance.

And on fund raising, I wish to extend my appreciation to Brian Reiser,
who is the coordinator of the Kolki, Ukraine Yizkor Book and who has
kindly prepared some helpful notes on using a Facebook "Cause" to
raise money for the Yizkor Book Translation Funds.
These notes are located at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/donation/funds_facebook.html
and presents a new (and proven by him) method of raising funds for
the Yizkor Book projects.

Finally, I would like to thank Osnat Hazan for the excellent work she
is doing in managing the YBMNI Project. She is working together with
a merry band of dedicated volunteers in extracting names >from the
online Yizkor Book projects to help build a searchable index for
the benefit of all researchers, and I have included her report
on recent additions to this index, at the end of my own.

And on volunteers - we are urgently in need of translators,
necrology transliterators and htmlers to help us with the
large volume of material that we would like to place online.
If you feel you have some time available for one of these
important tasks, I would be more than very happy to hear >from
you.
