Russian Marriage Certificate Translation #general

AlisonB Rose <alisonbrose@...>
 

Dear All,
Many thanks to everyone who responded to my recent viewmate VM22761
Russian marriage certificate of 1870 Poland.
However I'm now curious about the whole document and imagine it to be
a standard marriage certificate of the day.
If someone has a loose translation of what it may say I would be most
grateful for a copy.
Many thanks

ViewMate Request - German Handwritten postcards #general

Joachim Salinger
 

Hello,

I need help to deciphering and translating 2 postcards, sent in 1942
to my grandmother, Helma (Wilhelmine) SALINGER nee SPIELMANN, living
in Villeurbanne (Rhone, France), >from family members, kept held in
camps, waiting (and hoping!) for their emigration, to South America.

The first one is a postcard written by Richard SPIELMANN >from a
transit camp, in south of France, in August 1942.
I need help for deciphering and translating. Indeed, even if some
parts are easy to decipher, some aren't and, anyway, my german is
quite bad, so?

the link : http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=22837

The other one has been sent to my grandmother in october 1942, by a
SPIELMANN (but who precisely?) probably >from a transit camp, in
nothern France. The card was writen with pencil, and the support is
really dirty and dusty. I tried to get the most readable image, but if
you want, I can send you by email, the original scanned file, for a
better digital cleaning and/or better contrast control.

the link : http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=22838

I also want to thank everyone who helped me in the last weeks. Your
help is priceless.
I'll write very soon a "success story" to explain you precisely the
new informations and discoverings that you helped me to reach and get.

Re: Major source of confusion #general

Hi Sharon,

Vatra Dornei or DORNA VATRA was until 1918 part of Austro-Hungarian province
of Bukovina. So perhaps your ancestors were >from other Austrian places and
when left for US were living in Vatra Dornei.

I was just looking at the 1930 census where I found some information about
my great grandparents and great great grandmother that confuses me.

I was told, as well as seen it documented, that my great grandparents ( and
possibly my great great grandparents* ) were >from Vatra Dornei in Romania.
While looking at the 1930 census, it showed my great grandparents >from Zenta
(Senta), my great great grandmother >from I believe Bach and my great great
great grandparents >from Ried; all in Austria. The family listed under them
are shown to be >from what looks like it should be Iasi in Roumania.

My confusion stems >from (1) where is Zenta in relationship to Vatra Dornei
and (2) why are the neighbors >from Roumania and my family >from Austria?

* Some of my great great grandfather's siblings, based on documentation,
came >from Vatra Dornei, Czernovitz and Campulung.

Re: obtaining death certificate #lithuania

Martha Forsyth
 

Gary, one of the things you do is rejoice that it's New York: you can
search at http://www.fultonhistory.com/Fulton.html for a newspaper
obituary or other announcement of his death. That would give you the
info you need to obtain a certificate copy.

Using Internment Serial Numbers for Genealogy Research #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Dick Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter on May 12
(http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2012/05/) included an
article on using internment serial numbers for genealogy research--150,000
individuals who supported the WWII effort found themselves captured as POWs
in internment camps run by the Japanese or Germans. While many of us may be
aware of the records on the National Archives, this article contains
additional resources including for conflicts other than WWII. Some of the
resources are paid sites, while the National Archives is available free.
Dick Eastman refers to in an article by Dennis Dufrene published in the Top
Secret Writers web site at http://goo.gl/SJAsJ which includes links to the
other resources.
