MARCULESCU in Israel #general

Bob Friedman
 

I'm searching for family or friends of Dinu MARCULESCU (born circa 1904,
probably in Bucharest, Romania) and/or his brother (given name unknown).
They both most likely immigrated to Israel in the early 1960s and are now
buried there (dates & locations unknown).

Dinu's son Ovidiu was born in Bucharest in 1936, went to Israel about
1962, immigrated to NY in 1969, and died here in April of this year.

Dinu's wife Emma (maiden name BOSSEL) died in Aachen, Germany in 1981.

Please reply privately. Thank you!

Seeking help looking up naturalization records in Troy, Rensselaer, New York. #general

sacredsisters677 <sacredsisters677@...>
 

Hi all
I have two ancestors that I need help with locating copies of their
naturalization record. One is for my great great grandfather George
Harris and the other his father-inlaw Benjamin Dolinsky. Both became
citizens before 1900. George Harris was born about 1860 in Russia and
immigrated about 1888 and settled in Troy. He lived there for many
years and had 10 kids. Benjamin was born about 1837, and immigrated
about 1885. Benjamin died in 1912 and George 1940. Any and all help
is appreciated.

Baruch Dayan HaEmet - Ruth Gamper Silver #general

Robinn Magid
 

I am saddened to report the recent and sudden passing of Ruth Gamper
Silver, a longtime volunteer in the Jewish Genealogy world and a good
friend to many of us. Ruth volunteered in the Belarus SIG as a data
acquisition coordinator and with Paul Zoglin and David Feldman, worked
hard to create a cooperative relationship with other SIGs. Ruth was a
dedicated and active volunteer for JRI-Poland.org working with me in
the Lublin region for many years. Her cheerful attitude, willingness
to help, and ability to tell a story will be sorely missed. Ruth loved
her family and her cats very much. May her memory be for a blessing.

Seeking information about Rabbi Naphtali ben Abraham from Danzig #rabbinic

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Seeking information about Rabbi Naphtali ben Abraham, probably died
1801 in Danzig. There is some evidence he was not living in Danzig
(suburbs) in 1773 and it's possible he was born elsewhere. His known
or suspected children: 1) he had a daughter Guettel/Jette (c. 1784 - 6
Apr 1831, Koenigsberg) who was the last wife (of at least three) of
the cantor Salomon Mendel (Emanuel) of Koenigsberg (c. 1742 - 25 Jul
1812, Koenigsberg), marrying him c. 1797; 2) he might have had a son
or son-in-law named Nachmann Moses or Nachum Moses (b. c. 1782), who
came to Danzig >from Fordon during 1807-1809; 3) he might have had a
son Rabbi Gerson Naphtali NATHAN (1775, Danzig - 25 Dec 1850,
Copenhagen), whose son Joel NATHAN was the author of "Vokabularium zum
Pentateuch Torah"; 4) if and only if 3 is true, then he also had a son
Meyer Naphtali NATHAN (12 Jan 1793 - 13 Jan 1858, Danzig).

Any information about rabbis named Naphtali ben Abraham who could fit
the above would be greatly appreciated. I hope to learn more about
him >from upcoming archival research on late 18th/early 19th c. Danzig
sources.

Zsadany / Zdana #hungary

Peter Absolon
 

Shalom,

The Jewish Vital records (pre-1895) >from town of Zdana, Slovakia
(formerly Zsadany, Hernadzsadany) and the area around were never
filmed by LDS. Actually the records were not preserved and probably
lost during WW2.

I recently learned that Kosice archive keeps secondary copy and
extracts of Jewish BMD registers >from Zsadany. Not complete, though as
there are gaps - but one can find the records back in 1850's.

So this morning I took the scans >from all available pages and I'm
going to transcribe them soon. After transcription I will donate the
material to H-SIG so they could be added to All-Hungary Database soon.

I also took pictures of Kosice/Kassa civil vital records 1915-1917
that were released >from Vital Registry office to the State Archive
only last week.

If you have any ancestors >from places like Zsadany, Csany, Nadasd,
Szkaros, and would like run simple search, please let me know.

Best,
Peter Absolon

Another discovery of Bessarabia records! #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi everybody,

I need to share with you a finding I made today.

I am working on my Warsaw presentation on National Archive of Republic of Moldova, and adding
some material to the power point. I also looked into the Moldovan archive website, and there was
not much info in it, until... I decided to do a Google search for that Archive in Russian, and that
brought me to my new "Wow"!!

It appears that archive had a list of All of their funds in Russian, and some of these funds have
Jewish records!! (I had some list >from other sources, but that is much better!). They also did not scan
their material, but have links to FHL records...

Here is a link to that site:
****http://ru.oants.wikia.com/wiki/%D0%9D%D0%B0%D1%86%D0%B8%D0%BE%D0%BD%D0%B0%D0%BB%D1%8C%D0%BD%D1%8B%D0%B9_%D0%B0%D1%80%D1%85%D0%B8%D0%B2_%D0%A0%D0%B5%D1%81%D0%BF%D1%83%D0%B1%D0%BB%D0%B8%D0%BA%D0%B8_%D0%9C%D0%BE%D0%BB%D0%B4%D0%BE%D0%B2%D0%B0****
The link is so big, that you may not have the whole string, as it happens many times before.
I added **** in the beginning and at the end of the link. You can copy between these marks.

Finally, not all Jewish Funds are marked as Jewish... I looked at one of the Funds:

Fund 91 and inside "Delo" 262 that is a list of Kishinev Middle Class Jews >from 1910!!! It is not
Revision, but very similar list. Remember, the last Revision type list we have for Kishinev is >from
1859, and now 1910 - that will fill many gaps in our research.

I was really thrilled with these findings.

Now, we need to get easier access to FHL Microfilms, and also add more Translators/Transcribers
from Russian into the project.
We have now already translated more than 180 thousand records, and I thought that we will have
total of 250,000, but it may have much more records... Kishinev in 1910 had more than 50,000
Jews in town... probably 10% were Merchants, and the rest is Middle Class (Meshchane).

All the best,
Shabbat Shalom,
